How come I can't have a Kayla/Hope scene?

It's been a long time, and I'm ready.

Where is it?
I'm hoping we get one soon. You'd think we would've seen one with them talking about Bo and maybe also Theresa. I'd settle for a scene or two at the pub - them bumping into each other on lunch breaks, Kayla working there & Hope coming in to meet someone (or have lunch with someone), whatever. It's not rocket science to get the two of them in a scene together. You could even have them bump into each other at the hospital.
I would love to see Hope and Kayla both confront Theresa together after her next screwup. :popcorn:
Hope as "bad cop" and Kayla as "good cop", naturally. ;)

I kind of judge Chad for living in that apartment. I mean...it works for two old people, but Chad? Whatever, dude.
I don't get the big double doors with a bed on the other side.

That's just bad feng shui or something.
Did you see his body? Who gives a shit about feng shui when you got that happening
I agree with most of what's been said. Chad's abs won the show, but it was a tight race since his "feng shui" was almost showing. :cheer:

I didn't watch the trial. I was impressed with the JJ/Abby interaction (and Kate Mansi's performance), even through Abby talking about how saintly Jennifer was towards him. When she threw Jack under the bus, I was done with it.

Hope made me smile. I root for JJ, but it was nice to see a family member that had his number. That's how you handle JJ. Firm, smart, honest, and kind but not overly sympathetic.

I can understand how the writers would have Abby as the older sibling be more understanding of Jennifer wanting another man in her life but to say that JJ was abandoning his family just like Jack when Jack loved her so much he lost his life saving her life is just stupid.
I thought Marge's testimony was a realistic portrayal of a newly widowed woman having her husband accused of criminal behavior given that she had no reason to believe he was a criminal.
Today was the best day of the trial.I loved the way Melinda Trask sandbagged EJ today and wiped that smug smirk off his face when she called the forensic accountant to the stand.I liked the way she went to the defense table and looked EJ in the eye during her questions.
Loved Justin saying they needed a miracle.I bet this is the first time Stefano=miracle. The extra playing the police officer forgot the hand
cuffs.It was weird to see Sami put her hands behind her back as if she was cuffed when she was walking out of the courtroom.I also liked the Sami/Kayla scenes.
I think Chad is behaving like an egocentric sleazy creep preying on Abby while she is upset after her fight with JJ.If he really loved her,I don't think he would have sex with her for the first time when he knows she is in a bad place emotionally.Atleast Cameron had the decency to put a stop to sex with Abby just after Jack died and give her space to make her decision about sex free from other influences.I also think they are playing the same cheesy "making love for the first time" music they played during the first time for Melanie and Chad with the same sort of set up.I am not looking forward to tomorrow's show.

If they're going to peddle this crap about Jack being an abandoner, then they should use the anvil they dropped from his death with the jade plant and bring Matt Ashford back on. At least then we'd get some great scenes with MA and Casey Moss. If I have to hear them besmirch one of my favorite soap characters of all time, I'd rather Matt Ashford be on canvas so I can see someone I care about play the angst in reaction.

I propose a new drinking game -- take a shot every time that Casey Moss tugs on his shirt during a scene.

Also, his watch usually shows the same time every time that they do a close-up of it, and the second hand never moves. (I've also noticed that it's on the opposite wrist occasionally, and it has bounced wrists at least once during the same episode.)

Despite possible evidence to the contrary in the above paragraph, I usually don't pay the least bit of attention to what a character is wearing -- it's just not something that I care about or notice. However, the hideous shirt that Abby has been wearing for this "day" on the show, with its floral print that looks like it belongs on couch upholstery or a bedspread, is certainly noticeable.

That said, I find it hilarious that Abby will be wearing a floral print in the episode where she finally gets deflowered.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepwasn't


Okay darn! :shame: Some kind of special B---- Award you guys are going for here? :lol:
Nope, just going by what actually happened on my TV and not dumb enough to buy the revisionist history that the crappy writers try to sell me. If that makes me a "B" then so be it.
Oddly enough, in your quest to go by what happened on screen you're managing to ignore a lot of other things that have happened on screen. The writing is terrible, but it's also not how you're describing it. Dannifer blows, but a lot of the stuff you're saying Jennifer hasn't done she did do onscreen earlier this summer INCLUDING addressing her less than perfect past as a teenager.
Hell, Kristen just alluded to it in last Friday's episode.

I just love Rory! And the face he makes in the background when he asks Hope if he can crash at her place!

Love Abigail's look when Jen says she's being tough!
I can't believe that no one mentioned how Kevin Riggin (Rory) held out his hand expectantly and nudged Allison Paige (Bev) to get her attention, hoping that she'd give him some cash, too. Unfortunately, Allison completely ignored him, but it was still fun to watch. I really enjoy Kevin's performance as the goofy burnout.

To be honest, I'm shocked that Tomlin hasn't fucked up Hope's character & that she isn't being written OOC. In fact, she's actually being written pretty well. Yes, Hope mentioned Daniel in the list of people who care about Jen, but she didn't launch into a whole speech on why Jen needs to lean on Dan or anything else. He was a name among many. It's great that she's not being written as someone who's being walked all over either (though Hope letting JJ stay at the Bope house might have created a reason for showing the Bope house set again. lol) and isn't taking any bull from anyone - be it Vargas, Theresa, JJ, or even EJ.

The problem with Jen and her "parenting" of JJ is that she's all talk, no action. She says she wants to help him and loves him unconditionally, but I've not seen that. If she would have taken him to counseling or even spent some time with him, then I may believe her. I haven't seen her show the kid any love or affection or even seen her take the time to have a heart to heart talk with him. Every time she said they were going to talk, she'd get a phone call, text or just have to run to the Orange One's side. Her troubled teen never came above her job or her greasy orange boyfriend. Unfortunately, I think her chance with him has passed for now. JJ is so full of anger and resentment towards his mother now that he doesn't want to hear her anyway. Can't say that I blame him!
What Jennifer's doing is too little, too late. And it's worse because we actually saw her become laser-focused on getting Daniel back about five minutes after her return from Jack's offscreen memorial We saw her obsessing over his involvement with Nicole. We saw her deliberately insinuate herself into a situation that was none of her damn business. We saw her stalk Nicole all over town and screech at her, blaming her for something that Rafe and Daniel willingly chose to be a part of. JJ who? He certainly wasn't a top priority for her then. Nor dido he become one even after he came to Salem. Jen-Jen's little epiphany about how oblivious and self-absorbed she's been for the last year might be a baby step in the right direction for her, as far as self-awareness goes, but it's not news to JJ or the audience. At this point she won't get through to JJ without a mediator--and it can't be Daniel Jonas!

As for Abigail badmouthing the father who spent a year in captivity, being beaten and tortured, then put himself back together with no help or support from his family, and finally gave his life for hers . . . F.O.A.D., Bitch. :flipoff:
Yep. A good time to bring Jack back! Or Lucas! This kid needs his daddy.
I bet he'd blame him for something or other also. I doubt Jack would approve of his son's behaviour . JJ's just an angry kid. Destroying Parker's train set, that shows he has major issues. I'm glad Hope didn't take him in, I wouldn't trust him around my children either . Can't believe he would think she would let him live in her house with a young child around right after getting busted for drugs. I'd be scared he and his stoner friends would feed Cierra their brand of doughnuts.
JJ would never expose Ciara to drugs. The donuts technically wouldn't have happened if Adrienne hadn't switched them. JJ is resentful and angry but he loves his family. Unfortunately I can't say the same for his family. Abigail can fuck off with her ungrateful, sanctimonious ass. At this point she's FF material to me. Bitch can follow Chad straight out of Salem for all I care. What a waste of Kate Mansi's talent.

http://www.network54.com/Forum/358635/

Director: Albert Alarr
Scriptwriter: Janet Iacobuzio


Segment 1: Repeat of Justin asking Marge where the $100,000 came from. She shrugs.]

Kayla walks into the pub and greets Chad who is picking up a takeout order. How are you doing? Chad - Fine, thanks for asking. Kayla - And you and my niece, everything's going alright? Chad - Abigail and I are doing great. Kayla - I'm so glad and I hope that you continue doing well and that you're feeling okay. Chad - I'm feeling fine. Kayla - Good. Chad - OMG. Cameron told you, didn't he? He told you about my condition. That S.O.B.

Abby comes into the living room and asks her mom how things went with JJ after she left. Jen - Not so well. Abby - I'm so sorry Mom. I don't understand why he's acting like this. Is he upstairs? Jen - No, he's gone. Abby - Where did he go? Did he have a meeting with Uncle Justin. Jen - No you're brother has left home and I'm afraid it might be for good.

Bev passes JJ an envelope. JJ - I'm glad I gave you this to hold on for me. I just didn't think I'd need it so soon. Bev - Are you really not going home again? Won't your mom freak out on you? JJ - I'm 18. I'm an adult. Hope walks up. True you are, so when are you going to start acting like one?

Marge asks for some water. Sami whispers to EJ - This could be it. Check out the jury. EJ whispers back - something about where it came from. Sami - They have to realise Bernardi was a dirty cop. The judge asks Marge if she's ready to answer the question. Marge - Yes, I think. Justin repeats the question. Do you have any idea where your husband, Det. Joseph Bernardi, could have gotten his hands on a $100,000?

Jen - I told him there had to be new ground rules because he kept lying to me over and over again and I couldn't trust him anymore. Abby - So he just left? Jen - Yeah because he said he couldn't live by my rules anymore. Abby - What is he thinking? Where is he going to stay? Jen - I don't know but I'm sure he'll come back here once he cools off and starts thinking rationally. Abby - Rationally? JJ hasn't been thinking rationally for a long time now otherwise he wouldn't have been dealing drugs. What if he gets into something worse while he's away. Jen - He's still facing misdemeanour charges. I hope he has enough sense not to risk getting in trouble again. Abby - Because he's been so sensible so far? Jen - Honey, I am being tough this time. Abby - Tough? Jen - Yeah. I have called him back to set him straight.

JJ - What's up? Hope - Your mom called. She told me about the fight you two had. JJ - I bet she wants you to drag me back home. Hope - No actually she doesn't. You're 18 now. No one can force you to do anything you don't want to do, right? JJ - Then what? Hope - I was hoping I could get you to understand how incredibly hurtful this is to your mom. She doesn't deserve this. She loves you so much. She's always been there for you. She's always supported you. Always. What, no comment? JJ - It's not about hurting my mom, I need some space. Hope - Okay fine. Like I said no one can force you to do anything you don't want to do. JJ - I just need a little time to cool off. Hope - Fine and where do you plan on cooling off as you call it? JJ - Actually I was thinking that maybe I could crash at your place with you and Ciara for a couple of days. What do you think?

Justin - Your Honour, could you instruct the witness again to answer my question. Marge - You tried to make Joe look like a dirty cop and he wasn't. You know it. I know it. Everybody who's ever known him knows it. He was a hero and those two over there ... Justin protests. Marge continues - He's a DiMera and his father is the biggest crook in town and has been for years. It's true. Everybody in this room knows that it's true. Judge - Mrs. Bernardi you will refrain from making outbursts in my court and you will answer Mr. Kiriakis's question or I will have no choice but to have you remanded into custody. Justin - Mrs. Bernardi, do you know where the money in your son's bank account came from? Marge cries - You can't do this. Justin - I repeat, do you know where the money ... Marge - No I don't know where the money came from but it wasn't my husband's. He did not put it there. He was a cop and he was clean. And I didn't have a $100,000 lying around. Justin - Then how do you account for it? Marge - Someone else must have put the money there but it wasn't Joe. It was not Joe. Justin - Who else had access to your account besides you, your husband and your son. Marge - No one. Justin - No one? Marge - No one but he is a DiMera and they can get away with whatever they want. Somehow they got access to that account. Justin - Mrs. Bernardi, I know you'd like to believe that. Marge - I do believe it because it's the only explanation that makes any sense.


Segment 2: Kayla - You need to calm down and listen to me. Chad - You need to listen to me. Cameron had no right discussing my illness with you. It's freakin' doctor patient confidentiality and I may just have that bastard sued. Kayla - You are completely over-reacting. I was on duty the day he got your CT scan results. I consulted on your case. I'm his Chief of Staff. We do that everyday, all day. Chad - Okay there is no reason for you or Cameron to consult about me anymore. I have a new doctor now. Kayla - Yes I know and I know you're not telling Cameron what the name of your new doctor is. Chad - Because it's none of his business. Kayla - Why wouldn't you want the doctor who diagnosed you to consult with your specialist. Chad - Because Cameron is all up in my business and I don't want him asking too many questions. Kayla - He is concerned about you and so am I. Chad - There's no reason for you to be concerned about me anymore. I am fine! And yes I have a brain tumour but I also have the best doctor the DiMera money can buy right now. I don't want anyone else to know about this. Kayla - Not even Abigail. Chad - Especially not Abigail.

Abby - What if this tough love thing backfires? What if something really bad happens to JJ and we never see him again. Jen - Don't say that! Abby - Mom, it's possible. I lost my father. I don't want to lose my brother too. She leaves.

JJ - You won't even know I'm there and I know Bo is out of town so I could really help you out around the house. I don't eat a lot ... okay, that's a lie but I'll try not to clean out your refrigerator, I promise. I would love to spend more time with you and Ciara. She's so unbelievably cute. You don't like the idea? Hope - I would like to help you out but you need to go home. And before you get on the horn to all the Horton's and Johnson's in town and tell all of them that you'd like to get to know them better and you'll help out around the house and whatever else you can come up with, let me assure you they'll react exactly as I have. JJ mumbles. Hope - Listen up. The charges against you are very serious, do you not understand that? And as a cop I have seen where that path can lead and it's not warm and fuzzy. So stop being a jerk before you end up behind bars for the rest of your life, okay? Hey we're family but I'm also a cop. I'll be watching you. Actually, the entire force will be watching you. She leaves. Rory - Dude, I'm sorry. That was brutal. JJ answers his cell. I'm not coming home Abigail. Abby - I need to talk to you in person. JJ - Fine but only you can come, not Mom.

Judge - Mrs. Bernardi, I need you to stop speculating and answer the questions that are asked of you. Justin - Nothing further Your Honour. Trask has no further questions for this witness. Judge - You may step down Mrs. Bernardi. Marge - You have to believe me. Joe was a good man and he was a clean cop. The judge instructs the bailiff to remove the witness immediately. Marge yells - How could you do this to us? He's dead. My husband's dead and you want to make it worse for me and my little boy for the rest of our lives. She points at Sami. She killed his father. The Judge says he can grant a 15 min recess. Justin - The defence would like to proceed if the court would allow. Judge - Call the prosecution's next witness Miss Trask. Trask - The state calls Adrienne Kiriakis. EJ - Did you know about this? Justin - I knew she would be called but I didn't think it would happen today. Trask is nervous now that the money thing is out there. Sami - I hate to see her like that. EJ - She had to find out her husband was dirty sooner than later. It's all the better for us it happened on the stand. We have nothing to regret or feel guilty about. Nothing.


Segment 3: Trask gets Adrienne's name and establishes that she is married to the defendant's counsel. Trask - You were the one who provided the video of Miss Brady attacking Det. Bernardi prior to his death, were you not? Adrienne - Yes. Trask - You were also the person who went to the police with the tip to look into the bank account of the deceased's son, Timothy Bernardi, were you not? Adrienne - Yes. Trask - Can you tell the court Mrs. Kiriakis how you came to know that there was over $100,000's in Joe Bernardi's son's bank account. Adrienne - I ran into Marge Bernardi and her son Timmy when they came out of the bank and Timmy dropped his passbook. I bent down to help him pick it up and I noticed the balance on the receipt. Trask - What an extraordinary coincidence, yeah. Justin - Objection Your Honour. Judge - Sustained. Trask - So did you know Mrs. Bernardi and her son were coming from the bank when you ran into them. Adrienne - No. Trask - So it was a coincidence. Adrienne - Yes. Trask - And coincidentally Timmy just dropped his bank passbook at your feet and you just happened to see the balance. Adrienne - I believe that's what I just said Miss Trask. Trask - You see nothing unusual about this? Adrienne - I don't understand where you're going with this? Trask - I'll explain. It seems to me that a series of amazing coincidences befell you, the defence attorney's wife. Justin - Objection, leading the witness. Judge - Sustained. I think you've gone far enough Miss Trask. Trask has no further questions.

Chad - Abigail and I just got back together. I don't want to ruin what we have by talking about depressing things. I don't want her pity. Kayla - I understand that but you wouldn't get that with Abigail. She is a kind and caring person and she would help you through this. Chad - Still, she's been through a lot. Losing her Dad, now this stuff with her brother, this is the last thing she needs right now. Kayla - It's reality. Life throws us curves. And keeping secrets, especially something as serious as this, is really no way to start a relationship. Chad - Okay. I'm in treatment. I'm going to beat this damn thing and then when it's over I'll have spared Abigail from ever having to worry about me. I care about her a lot. I would never hurt her. Please trust me on this and don't say anything to her. Not a word. He leaves.

Abby finds JJ in the park and they hug. Abby - Can we talk alone? Rory and Bev will go get some smoothies or something. They leave. Abby - JJ, please come home. Moving out is a mistake, this is crazy. JJ - Mom is crazy. Abby - Don't talk like that. Mom is an amazing person and she always will be. She loves you so much. Sure she's angry but that doesn't mean she doesn't care about you. I was just with her. I'm telling you I saw the look on her face. She's worried sick about you. JJ - Maybe Mom should have thought about that before she started playing prison guard. Abby - I need to tell you something and I want you to hear me. When you were in London I messed up pretty big. I did some awful things that I am not proud of but Mom forgave me and so did Dad because I took responsibility and we worked through it together. And you have to do the same thing. You can't just run away from your mistakes. Mom's being tough on you right now because she feels that she has to but I am telling you that this is breaking her heart and it's breaking mine too. So please just come home and we can work on being a family. If not for mom would you do it for me.

EJ - Thank you Mrs. Kiriakis. I will be cross-examining you myself today due to the nature of your personal relationship with the defence attorney. Adrienne - I understand. EJ - Now you previously stated that you provided the defence with the video showing Miss Brady attacking Det. Bernardi. Adrienne - Yes. EJ - And at the time that you presented this video to the state had Miss Brady been charged with 1st degree murder? Adrienne - The charges had already been dropped. EJ - So it was when you presented this evidence to the prosecution that Miss Brady was charged for a second time? Trask - Objection. The prosecution stipulated ... EJ - The prosecution has made every attempt to portray the witness as colluding with the defence but the fact is we would not be here in this courtroom today were it not for Mrs. Kiriakis, is that not correct? Judge - You've both made your point regarding the witness. Anything more? EJ - No more questions. Judge - You're dismissed. Your next witness Miss Trask. Trask - The state calls Edward Craig. EJ - Your Honour, we have no record of this witness. Trask - Your Honour, Edward Craig is with the FBI and defence opened themselves up to this questioning by accusing Det. Bernardi of corruption and wrongdoing within the Police Dept. Judge - I'll allow it. Sami - What is going on? Justin - I think we've been set-up.


Segment 4: Abby - I know that you're really upset and you're feeling betrayed but hanging out with your loser friends isn't the answer. JJ - At least my friends want me around. Mom doesn't. Abby - God JJ, what happened to you? When did you turn into this selfish cold-hearted person? JJ - That's it. Abby - No, it's not it. You're going to listen to me and you are going to listen well. You got expelled from school for dealing drugs and you lied about it. And then you came home and you got arrested for doing the exact same thing. So you tell me, how did you think this would go? You thought that mom would just say 'Welcome home, JJ, can I make you a sandwich?' JJ - I thought she would try and understand me. Abby snaps - She did try. She tried for months and months and months. She tried with every cell of her being but you did nothing but disrespect her. You lied to her face over and over and over and over again. You made her life miserable and instead of saying your were sorry and correcting your behaviour you just continued to do more dumb, destructive things. JJ - You know what was dumb, me agreeing to talk to you. He slams his backpack to the ground. Abby - You know what was even more dumb JJ, me thinking that I could actually get through to you. So go ahead JJ, run along. You go play with your juvenile friends who love you so much more than we do. I am officially giving up. JJ - Good. Abby - You know what, I get it now JJ. Let me tell you something. I love Dad a lot, just as much as I love you but Dad, he was always making excuses for taking off, for abandoning his family and now JJ, you are doing the exact same thing. You are your father's son. You are just like him. She leaves.

Hope is at Jen. Shawn Douglas turned out fine and so will JJ. Jen - Yeah. Do you think I'm handling this whole thing right. Hope - I do. Jen - 'Cause Abigail thinks this whole ... she's worried that this tough love thing is going to backfire. And I'm just worried because I haven't heard from him so I'm thinking I should just call him ... I don't know.

Bev brings JJ some hot chocolate. He thought they were getting smoothies. Rory - It's too cold, haven't you noticed? Bev - The temperature dropped about 20 degrees. It looks like it's going to rain too. JJ - Perfect.

Mr Craig states his name and says that he's a Computer Forensics Expert for the FBI and heads up that division. Trask - And your team was brought in to research the $100,000 deposit into Timothy Bernardi's bank account, is that correct? Craig - Yes. Trask - Specifically, you were brought in to determine if there was computer fraud involved. Craig - That's right. Trask - And what did you determine after your investigation. Craig - Our initial tests came back clean; everything seemed to be above board. But we kept digging. Trask - Why were you so persistent? Craig - Because the people who had access to the account had no idea how the money got there and eventually we found discrepancies in the bank's computer system. Sami looks at EJ. Trask - What kind of discrepancies? Craig - It had been hacked prior to Aug. 22nd. Trask - Of this year? Craig - Yes. Prior to that date the account had $23.47 in it. Trask - $23.47? Craig - Yes. Trask - Once again, this is Timothy Bernardi's bank account? Craig - Yes. Trask - But I don't understand, our records show regular transactions and deposits of large sums of money on several occasions, the largest deposit coming the day before Det. Bernardi was murdered. Craig - Those deposits never happened. Trask - I'm sorry? Craig - They never happened. The $100,000 was a lump sum deposit on Aug. 22nd. Trask - Well that's very curious because Det. Bernardi was killed on June 11th.


Segment 5: Jen - No, I'm not calling him. He has to know that I'm not going to back down; that he has to follow my rules. Hope - I agree with you. Jen - It's just so hard 'cause it's times like this that I miss Jack the most. Hope - I know. It's very tough being a single parent and having to make all of those decisions on your own. But you have an incredible support group and so many people who love you. She lists off all the people who love her including Daniel. Jen - I know. It's so hard. I can't lean on Daniel right now for so many reasons. She hears the door. JJ. She runs to the foyer. It is JJ. Hope has to get going. She tells JJ it's good to see him. She leaves. Jen - I'm really glad you came back. Maybe we can sit down and talk this whole thing out. JJ - I didn't come to talk. I came to get my jacket.

Shirtless Chad opens his door to Abigail. Abby - Sorry, I should have called first. Chad is just unpacking boxes, come in. Abby tells him his place looks great. Chad - Are you upset? Abby - My brother. Chad - Did they deny his bail? Abby - He is out but he is making all kinds of stupid decisions and he's tearing my family apart. Chad holds her.

Jen goes through his jacket pockets. JJ - There's no drugs in there. Jen - I think you know why your word isn't enough. JJ - Can I have my jacket or do you want me to freeze death when I'm living on the street. She hands him his jacket. She tells him she owes him an apology.

Trask - So given the date of the deposit it would have been impossible for Det. Bernardi to put that money in his son's account since he was dead. Interestingly enough the defendant was just charged on July 22nd and the deposit was made after that date. Justin - Objection. Trask - I have the date right, don't I? Craig - Yes. Trask - And were you able to determine the source of the funds. Craig - My team traced it to an offshore account in the Cayman Islands. Trask - The Caymans? In your experience Mr. Craig, who generally has the ability to pull off such a complicated business transaction. As she asks the question she is leaning forward and staring at EJ. Craig - In my experience the people who have the means to hire the best hackers in the world. Trask - The means? Craig - Unlimited means.


Segment 6: Jen - I should have brought you home after your father died but JJ I honestly thought that it made sense not to disrupt your life. That was a really bad call on my part. You needed to be with me and Abigail. And then once I got you home I needed to pay more attention to you to see how you were doing. JJ - What are you getting at? Jen - I just want to own up to my mistakes because there were a lot of them. And I'm just asking you to own up to yours. JJ - So nothing's different. You're still being impossible.

Chad - I'm so sorry this stuff with your mom and your brother is so hard. I wish there was something I could do to help you. Abby - You are just by being here for me. Chad - Always. Abby - I don't know what I would do without you Chad DiMera. Chad - You don't have to worry about that because I will never leave. They kiss.

Jen helps him put his jacket on. What happened to my sweet little boy? Did time apart really change you that much 'cause we used to be so close. We had this crazy bond, remember. And I think it was because you were my miracle baby. The doctors said you were never going to make it but I never believed them because I knew this baby inside me was so strong and he was going to survive and he was going to grow up to be someone very, very special. And I was right. I didn't give up on you then and I'm not going to give up on you now because I am your mother and I love you unconditionally and that is never going to change. And because I'm your mother I'm not going to let you destroy your life. So maybe you think I'm being unreasonable and maybe you think I'm mean but I'm trying to help you. Please I'm begging you. Don't walk out that door. Please stay here with me and let's rebuild that bond that we had, okay. Let me help you get your life back on track.

Justin - Objection, Your Honour. Judge - Sustained. Trask has nothing further. Justin - The defence has no questions at this time but we do reserve the right to call this witness back to testify. Judge - The witness is dismissed for now. Seems like a good time to recess for lunch. One hour. Justin - I need a minute to think about this. Sami - It's over, isn't it? I'm going to go to prison for the rest of my life. EJ - We can not give up hope. I promise you. Sami - EJ, no more promises. I know you've done everything you can for me. EJ - It backfired. I'm so sorry. Sami - I know you are and I understand why you did what you did. The guard tells Sami she has to go back to her cell now. Justin returns to the courtroom - only EJ is there. EJ - Is it as bad as we think? Justin - Oh yeah, we are royally screwed. I put Marge Bernardi through hell on the witness stand and now the jury believes the whole thing was a setup. They hate me, they hate you and much worse, they hate Sami. EJ - We haven't even presented our case yet. Justin - What case? I have character witnesses and when Melinda gets them all to admit how many times Sami has lied to them, they'll do more harm than good. We have no evidence. We have no proof. All we have is something that looks like a complete frame up executed by you to keep your fiancée out of prison. The only thing that is going to save Sami is a miracle.


Segment 7: Chad and Abby kiss. Abby leads him to the bed. They continue kissing.

JJ - I'm not interested in you fixing me. I don't need your help. I just want you to leave me the hell alone. He leaves. Jen cries.

Kayla comes to see Sami in her cell. She hands her something from Caroline. Sami is glad it's a closed trial. I'd hate for Grandma, for all of you, to have to sit through this. Kayla - Was today really bad? Sami - I can't pretend anymore. I'm going to prison for the rest of my life.

Trask and her assistant celebrate. Trask - It's a slam dunk. Guy - There's no way out for Sami Brady. EJ comes in. A word in private Miss Trask. The other guy leaves. Trask - What can I do for you counsellor. EJ - I'm here to talk about what I can do for you. I know how much you want to put my father and myself behind bars. I'm here to give you the opportunity to do just that.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepsaw her become laser-focused on getting Daniel back about five minutes after her return from Jack's offscreen memorial We saw her obsessing over his involvement with Nicole. We saw her deliberately insinuate herself into a situation that was none of her damn business. We saw her stalk Nicole all over town and screech at her, blaming her for something that Rafe and Daniel willingly chose to be a part of. JJ who? He certainly wasn't a top priority for her then. Nor dido he become one even after he came to Salem. Jen-Jen's little epiphany about how oblivious and self-absorbed she's been for the last year might be a baby step in the right direction for her, as far as self-awareness goes, but it's not news to JJ or the audience. At this point she won't get through to JJ without a mediator--and it can't be Daniel Jonas!

As for Abigail badmouthing the father who spent a year in captivity, being beaten and tortured, then put himself back together with no help or support from his family, and finally gave his life for hers . . . F.O.A.D., Bitch. :flipoff:
Yep. A good time to bring Jack back! Or Lucas! This kid needs his daddy.
I bet he'd blame him for something or other also. I doubt Jack would approve of his son's behaviour . JJ's just an angry kid. Destroying Parker's train set, that shows he has major issues. I'm glad Hope didn't take him in, I wouldn't trust him around my children either . Can't believe he would think she would let him live in her house with a young child around right after getting busted for drugs. I'd be scared he and his stoner friends would feed Cierra their brand of doughnuts.
JJ would never expose Ciara to drugs. The donuts technically wouldn't have happened if Adrienne hadn't switched them. JJ is resentful and angry but he loves his family. Unfortunately I can't saw the same for his family. Abigail can fuck off with her ungrateful, sanctimonious ass. At this point she's FF material to me. Bitch can follow Chad straight out of Salem for all I care. What a waste of Kate Mansi's talent.
Do we know for sure that JJ wouldn't expose Cierra to drugs? If he was dealing from the Horton house,whats to say he wouldn't do the same in Hope's house? What if Cierra was to find his stash? We know he couldn't keep an eye on Parker for two minutes, I doubt he could be trusted to think about a child's welfare before his own selfish needs. JJ may love his family deep down but right now he's too busy thinking only of himself and being an entitled brat. It doesn't matter what his parents might have done in the past or what his sister thinks, he's not ten anymore, it's time to grow up and stop lying if he wants to be trusted by anyone.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepa true DiMera much less
I agree! It's just too bad the poor boy keeps trying to be just like Stefano. It's truly sad yet amusing.
We will disagree on that, I do not see anything about EJ now trying to be Stefano's mini-me and I am glad. For starters I do not see Stefano doing what EJ did today for Sami when it comes to offering himself up in the place of the love of his life :wub2:
I have to agree. Ej is trying to be his own man whatever that may be. The days that Ej wanted to be the image of his father are long gone. All Ej wants is to build a life with his Samantha and their children.

Besides, Ej beat Stephano fair and square. Yes Stefano will gain the upper hand again, but he is doing it the coward way instead battling Ej man to man. Using his love for his fiancee to force his hand is not only unfair but it is not a real victory.

In any case, Stefano may win this round, but he won't win the war. I don't see Ej being defeated for long, he will fight back.
So, the manly, upstanding way to take someone down is by shooting the (John, in case you forgot) person in the back, then kidnapping them and stealing their kidney while they're in a coma (from the gunshot wound you inflicted)? Sorry, you don't do the kind of things Elvis does and claim to be manly or not cowardly.

Why don't we see more scenes with EJ as a lawyer? I would love to see him act like one more often, and definitely see him do more interrogations.

EJ faced John face to face so I donīt think he was being a coward on that occasion, but he has been a corward at other times like when he put Lucas in the freezer. I donīt think he was being either manly or a corwad when he stole Stefanoīs companies, since I doubt he could have done any other way than in secret.

I donīt think EJ is trying to be like Stefano at this time, he has changed for Sami, but that doesnīt mean he wonīt in the future. Iīm not sure if I want EJ to be the new Stefano but I donīt want him to change and be to good for Sami either, he should at the very least be gray.
