How many times has Sami tried to get married/gotten married? I'm thinking 12... Seems like Marlena's number is pretty high, too. Good thing she was on the other side of the room when Ciara said what she did.

I like the top, but agree about the blazer or whatever it's called. Too much IMO.

||All in all a very enjoyable episode, especially in all the character interactions. Ciara was the highlight of the episode for me. Speaking of Ciara, my biggest complaint about the episode was the lack of kids. I get that they didn't perhaps want Sami's kids there for the arrest, but wouldn't that have been more dramatic? Would have loved to get Lucas's reaction to the Ejami wedding date. With all the reactions we have gotten from the Ejami portrait, I really want to see Lucas's next. And Nicole, followed by Victor. Back to the Academy opening, it would have been nice to see Chad bring Theo and Kayla bring Joey.|

it wasn't so much a grand opening as it was a sort of thank-you gala for the donors. it made sense for Hope & Ciara to be there because Hope probably still has control over the Horton Foundation. Chad & Theo wouldn't have really served any purpose being there, and Kayla was probably either working or running the pub.

I sure didn't see indifference on JS's part. He seemed to come alive in his scenes with Ari. I've seen James phone scenes in before and this scene wasn't one of them. JMO.

I thought Varicole had chemistry but they were moving to fast and Nicole should not have tried to sleep with Vargas just to forget about Eric.

THANK-YOU! Sami was hurting people, Nicole was not. Sami was double hurting both Lucas and Rafe by giving pleasure/rewarding the man who repeatedly hurt/tried to kill both Rafe and Lucas, who Rafe put his life on the line to protect her from!
People like to forget that while Nicole was flirting with EJ, it was also EJ who chased Nicole. When Trent blackmailed Nicole, it was to keep her from EJ. She had to tell him to buzz off, and he did the chasing. She was willing to walk away and raise the baby on her own. EJ chased Nicole.
Nicole only wanted to live in one of the guest houses to visit Sydney. EJ was the one who started flirting and wanted the marriage. Nicole gave him an out after he called a "truce" with Sami and Rafe. HE wanted to marry her.
EJ did the chasing for months, starting with the tango.
And EJ is the king having zero self-respect, of being desperate to be the second choice to someone who is happy with someone else and told in no uncertain terms repeatadly that they don't want him. Just because he's a man, no one here is calling him a slut.

Yeah, I didn't like that Nicole was sleeping with Vargas when she didn't want to (I'm of the opinion that they went through with it). But they did have chemistry.

||As for Daniel, he's written to be God to Salem. He's the love of Jennifer's life, and her reason for being alive (Jack who?) and Chloes' reason to get up in the morning. There is no explaining that ridiculas character who is worshipped by the town. Every woman is shamed just by being in the same room with him. :puke:|

I'm a day behind :drunk:
I was underwhelmed by this supposed big exciting episode. Scenes were so short and choppy, like they had to cram too much into this show. There was no real suspense, and not only because it was predictable. Kristen not being able to find the flash drive was confusing. I'm not sure if it was on purpose since later when talking to Marlena she hugged the purse like she knew she still had it in there.
All I kept thinking when Brady and Kristen were talking in the garden was a a sarcastic, 'What a romantic love story these two have.' There is absolutely no passion, longing, or heart pounding desire between them, and the way this show seems to want the viewer to feel sorry for both of them, all I want is to see Brady end up with her again so he can be hurt when the truth comes out, only much much worse. I wasn't afraid for Brady, the bumbling idiot, and I wasn't rooting for Kristen to jump into his arms and toss aside her plan. They are the farthest thing from star-crossed as it gets.
Also, there was not much suspense about Adrienne getting the evidence to Abe. Sami being to nice, so saccharin sweet and happy was a bit much and telegraphed exactly what was going to happen. And the sorry attempt to create suspense with the prosecutor and Abe was laughable. Abe was standing right next to Sami and Elvis and she screams over to Abe to arrest Sami or else, and Sami wasn't phased at all by that loud command. Neither she or Elvis heard it. It was all so bad, and Sweeney's lack of any kind of acting skills was glaring. I think she was trying to play it with subtlety which is not in her wheelhouse.
I loved Marlena and Will (talking about John) and Marlena and Eric, and Marlena and Hope. Marlena's especially root-able for me in this disappointing Kristen returns story.
There is no excuse for the way the citizens and holy men of Salem accept DiMera money and influence. Oh, as long as you give to a charitable cause you're welcome to hobnob with those who are suppose to be a living example of Christ and his sheep. :shrug: and I was raised Catholic and bishops do not show up for school openings and if they did they wouldn't be wearing their formal vestments (Monsignor's either). I've been to a priest's ordination (very formal event) and the bishop of that diocese didn't wear a cap or formal vestment. He wore a regular priest's garb. I wouldn't have know he was the bishop if someone hadn't told me.
I don't think the little comment from Ciara was to be missed. She'll probably be the one to see the video first and her little world of Kristen admiration will come crashing down on her adorable little head. She'll spend months with it in her backpack......

Boy, was I wrong. Lawd. :shame:
And I'm ok with that. :laugh:

Ciara most definitely needs to find the USB on the grass in the playground and place it in a sticker-decorated box. lol.
