I didn't say that you did.

Ps, I added more to my previous post if you are interested.
I'm not sure where the misunderstanding is. What you've bolded doesn't include the word "couple." I never said you referred to them as a couple. I said you referred to them as soulmates.
I guess I don't see much of a difference between those two words. I just threw in soul mates as an added adjective describing soap couples.

Well, in that case, you are calling them a couple, lol. I just think you (and not you specifically necessarily. Just in general) are trying to impose "couple rules" to them, and I don't happen to think that makes sense at this point. They're not going to act like two characters in love because they aren't two characters in love. That particular part of the soap formula doesn't work in their context right now. My frustration continues to be that you're (and again...not you specifically) rushing to the end of the story when we haven't even gotten to the beginning.

I think TomSell are absolutely awful, but I do think they're doing this one story that gets approximately 8% of the screen time right. They're doing a classic slow build with a twist. There's no need to rush it to the point of being dramaless like every other story that's currently airing. By the time they get to the end, they may not be soap couple material anymore. I don't have a lot of faith in these idiots, so it wouldn't surprise me. But we're not there yet. And right now, what's airing is good and soapy. I don't see any use in worrying now that they won't be viable if they do get together because it's looking like that's still a long way off anyway (if it even happens). If they're a rotten, contrived couple in a year it's not going to make what's happening now less good.

Hope, you bitch! She deliberately sent her out of town so she couldn't be at the Bristen wedding! How dare you deny Ciara of her Kristen fangirling when that was the best thing she had going for her! And hated her acting all smug and sanctimonious in front of Brady.
That's not quite true. Hope told Brady that Doug & Julie taking Ciara to NYC to see Matilda was a trip that had been planned for ages. And Brady himself said that the wedding was last-minute. Hope has NEVER been a fan of Kristen's, and it would've been stupid for her to start being pro-Bristen now. She's got every right to be afraid that her daughter is idolizing a woman that has put John & Marlena through hell, and even paid someone to attack Brady. Hope does hope, for Brady's sake, that things work out between them because she does genuinely want Brady to be happy.
It was refreshing to see another character actually not have just forgotten everything Kristen's done.

Now if only we'd see Marlena and Hope be all BFFy like we did a year ago. Hope was the only one to immediately believe Marlena back then, it'd be nice to see Hope step beside Marlena now too.

I loved that while Victor bit at Marlena several times today, she totally has his number. Like, they're not all of a sudden best buds, and Marlena's just ignored everything she hates about the way Victor (the real Victor) chooses to life his life. I like that Marlena scratched back at him.

If Ari doesn't get an Emmy this year there is no justice in the universe.
Well, KA hasn't gotten one. Not even so much as a nomination. What does that tell you?
That Kristian doesn't submit material every year. it's hard to be nominated when you don't submit. Winning Emmys is not important to her. There are some that can't not submit material each year, because they're hungry for recognition and the perceived prestige that comes with being an Emmy winner. Sure, when she's got material she feels is worthy of submission, she submits.
Also, the award nominations have always been skewed because the networks that have more shows get more votes (or something like that). Those that vote don't necessarily vote for the person they feel had the best submission. Sometimes they may vote for someone because they like them better, or for some other reason.
At the end of the day, regardless of her lack of Emmy wins (or nominations), Kristian is highly respected in the soap community as a whole. Outside of some media people who put personal agendas in front of their jobs as reporters/interviewers/etc., no one dislikes her, and no one actively tries to avoid interviewing her. (hell, even those with personal agendas have had moments where they couldn't not admit that she did something good or looked fabulous.)
That's the same as with Deidre. I mean, I can sit here and go "WHY, oh WHY?" when I know part of the reason why. The problem is that the Emmy system is so effed up that when these people do submit things that should have them in the running for the win, politics of it have them not even make the race. DH submitted the Possession and then for the Serial Killer stuff (technically a duel role, which the Emmys seems to love in everybody else as long as you are not them), and she wasn't even nominated... and she didn't seem to be surprised either. She has come out and said, that if she doesn't feel she had extraordinary work that meant she would feel worthy standing up there, then she just doesn't bother. That you should only submit if you felt your work was extraordinary (and I agree - Tony Geary, think about it).

It's admirable for DAYS' two "divas" to actually be very un-diva like, but it would have been nice to see them at least be honored with an acknowledgement once in a while.

Third, how is it possible that Marlena also seemed to have no idea who Theresa was either? This was just as bad as Brady referring to her as Sami's cousin the other day. Theresa was, at one point, her niece when she was married to Roman (and I will call him Roman because it was before he was Winston). And since there are only three rooms in that entire hospital, don't you think she'd run into her at some point at work? By the way, loved everyone's comments about Anne laying into Marlena about showing up to work as often as Jen Jen.
The difference being though that they'd have put away one option for "Where the hell is Marlena?", by having that mentioned. She's on so little, that there are really only two explanations for it. She's watching the grandbabies or she's working. Meanwhile, we see Jen-Jen every day, half the episode.

Theresa overdoses and the show doesn't show us one scene of the Bradys rallying around her. Not one. How stupid is that? What? They can't give Caroline or Kayla or Roman or Hope (or any combination thereof) a few minutes with a member of their FAMILY? Someone whose life happens to have been in jeopardy?
Because they, like I, couldn't care less about Theresa. Lol.

Doesn't that just suck? To not care about the child of Shane and Kim? They're one of my favorite DAYS couples ever (and I'm very, very picky) and I seriously just could care less. And they're a legendary supercouple in the genre, not just DAYS-wise.

I want to blame Dr Ding-Dong, but meh, the writing is bad all around.

Yes, it does suck, especially because Jen Lilley is a good actress (I had already seen her on GH) and I *want* to want to watch her perform. But agh, I just can't. It doesn't help at all that I don't care about Jennifer, JJ or Daniel who are in the closest proximity of this character. The closest to a character I have slowly started to like is Anne, but as long as she's just another foil for Dannifer aswell, I'm afraid even that's not going to be enough.

I thought yesterday's episode was kinda boring if it wasn't for the brilliance that are Eric and Nicole. I agree with Lysie that the scenes reminded me of when Lucas found Sami in bed with Brandon and believed that she had cheated on him. The history of Nicole's wrongdoings was used very much to remind her that she could be capable of doing very awful things....I liked that exchange between them. And like the Lumi scene in 2005 when Lucas walked out of the room and doubted his accusation of Sami for a second there because she 'wasn't a cheater'....you could tell when Nicole told Eric that she did know what he felt because she had been a victim of sexual abuse too and for those reasons she would never do something like that, he looked like finally SOMETHING broke through to him and although he didn't actually say it out loud, GV played it that for a second there he actually had a smidgen of doubt of what he had accused her of doing.

Love these two, love the way they are writing them, they are seriously the only good, solid thing this show has at the moment. They are the only two character that haven't been written generically....and aren't interchangeable with the others on canvas. Lysie and I were talking about this on twitter yesterday. The show needs SOMETHING, it's just too predictable, and predictability leads to boring....I agreed with her that the cast is way too stable, that for the past couple of years, the only cast changes are the ones that were brought on by writing changes....that is not good on a soap....I don't mind stability, but the stories are boring....that is what makes Ericole so exciting to me.....and the only thing that I really have to look forward to...aside from Lucas getting more airtime of course....

This was my favorite moment yesterday. AZ was killing me and that statement about how could she do this when she's experienced the same thing was heartbreaking. And GV is about the best "eye actor" on the Days' cast because the look he gave made you know that her statement put a question in Eric's mind. Without saying a work, he showed you that Eric had a smidge of doubt and concern about his accusations. Just great stuff.

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

Director: Grant A. Johnson
Scriptwriter: Richard Culliton


Segment 1: Maggie is at the Horton house. Jen tells her she's fine. Maggie - You can't be. Jen - I can pretend I am. Maggie - This is so out of character for Daniel. I mean Theresa of all people. JJ listens as Jen says she doesn't want to talk about Daniel and she really doesn't want to talk about Theresa. Maggie - I get it. Listen, if you need to talk, call me. JJ comes in the room. Maggie - I'm glad you're back home. In a quiet voice she tells him to take care of his mother. She says goodbye and leaves. Jen - You're home early. JJ - Yeah, it was a half day but I'm glad you're home. I have to talk to you. Jen - Did something happen at school. JJ - No, there's just something I have to tell you.

Theresa wakes up. Dan and Maxine are in the room. She asks - Where am I? Dan - You are in the hospital. Do you know how you got here? Do you remember what happened last night.

Victor lets Marlena in to the K mansion. Marlena - I don't like being summoned. Vic - I don't like being cut out of the loop. Marlena - I didn't cut you out of the loop. Vic - You don't call, you don't write. I have no idea what the hell is going on. All I know for sure is I haven't gotten a text from Brady saying 'Wedding is off Discovered bride to be is a soul sucking bitch LOL'. Marlena - This is not funny. Vic - You think I don't know that. You've got 24 hrs. to come up with something and I want to know what that something is. What! Marlena - I don't like being yelled at. I feel bad enough already. I had a chance to stop Kristen and I blew it.

Brady tells Kristen that Eric is furious because he didn't tell him that he knew Nicole had feelings for him. Kristen - He's furious? Brady - Yeah, furious. I told him I was trying to protect Nicole; I didn't think he was in danger but he got louder and louder. I truly have never seen him this upset. Am I nuts. So Nicole has a crush on him; feelings for him. No one died. What is the problem! He's acting like it ruined his life.

Eric - Before you go there's something I want you to know. What happened between us was not entirely your fault. I should have been warned about your feelings. Nicole - One more time, NOTHING HAPPENED BETWEEN US! Eric - You don't have to deny it. Aside from my spiritual advisor I'm not going to tell anybody else about this. I won't go to the police. Nicole - The police? Eric - Yes to press charges even if more evidence comes to light. Nicole - Nothing is going to come to light because nothing happened between us. I didn't drug you and I sure as hell didn't have sex with you.

JJ - Oh man. Jen - What? JJ - The look on your face and the fear that's in your eyes right now saying 'what did he do now.' Jen - No. JJ - It's okay. You get to be scared. I made you not able to trust me. I've got to deal with that. Jen - Just tell me what you're going to tell me. Abby comes in. JJ, If you don't pull all the way into the driveway then we don't have enough room to park. Jen - Sweetie, that's my fault. Can you not jump on your brother right now please. JJ - It's okay. Hey, you went to say goodbye to Chad, didn't you? Abby - Yeah. Jen - Baby, are you okay? Abby - Yeah, I'm fine. It looks like you two were in the middle of talking and I'm not in a great mood so I'll leave you guys alone. JJ - Come on, Abs. I was just about to tell Mom something, maybe you should hear it too.

Marlena - Nicole and I both think there's something incriminating on that flashdrive; maybe something about the affair. Certainly Kristen went through a lot of trouble to have some thug steal it back. Vic - Remember the good old days. Proof of an affair was lipstick on your collar; an earring in the bed sheets. Marlena - Now that's why I don't tell you stuff. Vic - Do you listen to yourself? Tomorrow my grandson is marrying a woman who keeps proof of an affair on a flashdrive. Think of the levels of weirdness that entails. You try to get rid of proof of an affair not store it on a handy dandy portable device. Marlena - Well the point is moot. We both know that once she got her hands on it she destroyed it. And the camera cuts to the flashdrive on Daniel's desk.

Kristen - It gets even weirder. I just saw Nicole. She was acting like her life was ruined too. I'm not her biggest fan, we all know that, but I almost felt sorry for her. Brady - I should have kept my big mouth shut with Nicole. I was so mad at her for spreading those lies about you, I lashed out at her, I yelled at her. Kristen - You had no way of knowing that Eric was going to overhear you. Brady - I should still apologise to her. I've been trying to call her. Kristen - I saw her, seriously she needs space. I think you and I need to go talk to Eric and smooth things over with him as soon as we can.

Nicole - I talked to that woman, your witness at the hotel. A woman who didn't seem very competent at all. A hotel clerk who sees a hundred faces a day knows for a fact that I was there months ago in some ridiculous disguise and that's all you need to accuse me of rape. Eric - I remember that night. Nicole - Really. So I drove to the capitol in some silly disguise and drugged and seduced my friend. I would NEVER do that to anyone, especially someone I love. Eric - Did you love EJ when you faked a pregnancy just to stay with him? Didn't you love Daniel when you told him Jennifer pushed you down the stairs? I think your track record speaks for itself.


Segment 2: Theresa - Sorry, the last thing I remember is leaving work yesterday, even that's really hazy. Before that, the whole week, it's sort of a blank. Dan - Okay, then we start by saying you're going to be fine. He sees Anne standing outside the door. Maxine, would you please take care of that. Maxine leaves. Dan - As I was saying you're going to be fine but you OD'd last night. Theresa - Oh God. Where was I? Dan - In your apt. You called me earlier that evening so luckily I came by and found you. Theresa - What! I called you? Dan - None of that sounds familiar. Theresa - No, not at all.

Jen slaps JJ's face. You were doing drugs with Theresa. She could have died. What is wrong with you! You ran away! What are you? A coward and a liar. Get out of my house! Get out of my house right now! End fantasy. Abby - JJ, what is it? What's wrong? Jen - What is going on. You seem so upset. JJ - It's because I am upset Mom. I know how stupid I have been over and over and it's like I finally woke up. Last night when we were talking I wasn't clear enough. So here's the deal. I am done doing drugs. Abby - Do you mean that JJ? JJ - Never again. Jen - Thank you. Thank God. JJ - I'm not going to use, I'm not going to deal. I actually saw how the drugs were ruining my life and yours too. I'm sorry for how I acted. I'm sorry for how I treated you. How I talked to everyone. I really wish I could take it all back. Jen - Honey, it's in the past. It doesn't even matter now. You made a positive decision so we are just going to move forward. If you really mean it, if you're really giving up drugs ... JJ - IF I mean it? Look, I do but I also understand it's going to take a while for you guys to trust me again. Jen - I mean this ... I am so proud of you. She hugs him. I'm really proud of you.

Vic - So Kristen got the evidence back and destroyed it and you didn't see fit to tell me about that. Marlena - I assumed she destroyed it. And I didn't tell you because I know how cranky you get when things don't go exactly your way. Vic - Nothing is going my way and if this wedding comes off tomorrow it's going to be your fault. Marlena - Wow. You are really good at assessing blame, aren't you? I don't know how Maggie puts up with you. Maggie comes in - A question I ask myself everyday. So does someone want to tell me what's going on here.

Kristen - I'm going to go and speak with Eric not just so he'll marry us but because I hate it when you guys are mad at each other. Brady - I should go with you. Kristen - The peace needs to be brokered. You guys have a way of pushing each others buttons, don't you think. Brady - He was furious when I walked in the door. Kristen - Let me see what I can do. Can you do me a favour? Jennifer texted me and she said needed to speak to me about the wedding, something important. Could you go by her place and find out what it was. Brady - I'd be happy to but I think I'm getting the easier assignment here though. Kristen - We know Eric, he's probably all calmed down by now. She kisses him and leaves.

Eric - All this time I thought you were my guardian angel; you were looking out for me. Nicole - I was. Eric - No, Nicole. You hurt me in more ways then you can even imagine. Do you have any idea what you have done to me! I took a vow of chastity and you defiled that, you defiled me! Nicole - Where the hell's that Bible? She places her hand on top of the Bible. I swear I did not drug you. I swear I did not have sex with you. Eric - Put that down! Nicole - Why! Because I shouldn't touch it; because I'm unclean? I swear to God I did not do that to you! Eric grabs the Bible. Don't you take His name in vain! Not after what you have done. Nicole - I know what you're going through. I know the anger and I know the rage. And you know how I know that? Because I was abused as a kid. You know I was. I know what you're going through and I would never in a million years do that to someone else. But you don't believe me. Some desk clerk's word means more than mine because I am what I've always been, a lying slut. She grabs her purse and leaves.


Segment 3: Dan - Can I ask you something. If you remember last night, anything at all, call me right away. It's kind of a sensitive situation and I think it's best you talk to me before you talk to anybody else. Will you promise me that? Theresa - Yeah, I'd promise you anything. Right now I've got to get back to sleep.

When Dan goes to the nurses station Anne marches up. I just wonder how you live with yourself. Thanks to your sleazy party last night that young woman almost died. Dan - Smug self-righteousness, how out of character for you. Maxine - We all know you don't do any work but maybe you could leave people alone so they can. Anne - Such unswerving loyalty to a man who can destroy this hospital's reputation. Dan - My blood test came back negative. The hospital's reputation is just fine. Anne - Dollars to donuts the lab clerk was female. Dan - WTH are you implying? Anne - Oh really, do I need to spell it out. Dan - What you need to do Anne is get a life so you can stop ruining everybody else's. Anne - Oh really, I'm ruining other people's lives. This from a guy who's hanging out with a young woman who OD's and almost dies. Dan - Shut the hell up. Anne - This from the esteemed surgeon who's private life is a complete and utter catastrophe due to his apparent compulsion to seduce practically every woman in Salem. And yet he walks around like the poor, put upon, beleaguered soul who's been dealt a bad hand when in fact every single, crappy thing that's ever happened to him has been because ... Dan - Get away from me. Get out of my face. I am warning you. Anne looks around at everyone watching and leaves. Maxine - I'm sorry. Anne was even more brutal than usual. Dan - I'm sure that's what you were thinking. Maxine - No. Dan - I know you're disappointed in me Maxine. Maxine - It's kind of hard not to be. You all but owned what you did last night. Just give me a reason to be wrong. Dan - I've said all I'm going to say. Maxine - Alright. Dan - Now I'm going to take the rest of the day off. Dan looks at everyone staring. Just like Spencer Tracy; Bad Day at Black Rock. Maxine - At least it can't get any worse. Jen gets off the elevator. Maxine - I think I spoke to soon.

Marlena is checking her cell. I've got an emergency at the hospital. I have to go. I'll leave you to explain to Maggie. She leaves.
Vic - I hate it when you cross your arms that way. Maggie - And I hate finding out that once again you're doing something behind my back. Vic - Pure conjecture on your part. Maggie - Marlena doesn't drop by for high tea and you don't have a scowl on your face for no good reason. So once again, what's going on here?

Hope is walking through the park when she sees Brady. They say hi. Brady - I'm glad I ran into you. Did you get our email? Hope - Yeah, about moving the wedding up to tomorrow, right? Brady - Yeah, that's our plan. Of course we hit a snag but we're hoping to work it out and I'm hoping you're going to attend. Hope - I'm trying my best. Brady - Actually I had one other favour to ask you. We were hoping Ciara would be our flower girl. She's got to be our flower girl. Hope - She would absolutely love that but she's going to be in New York with my Dad and Julie. They have tickets for Matilda. It's been planned for months. Brady - I know it's a last minute thing. I kind of get the sense you're relieved though. Hope - I am.

Nicole is at the club having a martini. Stares at a picture of Eric on her cell and deletes it.

Eric is in the rectory holding the matchbook from the Capitol Hotel. How could you have done this to me? Kristen knocks and asks if he's busy. Eric - No. Kristen - I just talked to Brady. He's so sorry. He's so upset. Eric - I don't really want to talk about it right now. Kristen - I knew that Nicole had a crush on you too. Brady and I just didn't think it was our place to tell you. Can you understand? Eric - No because if one of you had been honest with me I could have handled the situation a bit better. Kristen - I don't understand why you're acting this way. It was really just an innocent crush. Eric snaps - Nothing about that was innocent. Do you have any idea what she did! Kristen - What did she do? What are you talking about? Eric - Nothing. I really don't want to talk about it. Kristen sees the matchbook from the hotel. Kristen - Does this have anything to do with what happened at the Capitol?


Segment 4: Jen and Dan ignore one another. Dan leaves. Maxine - I didn't expect to see you here today. Jen - I just came to pick up some documents. How's Theresa doing? Maxine - She was awake for a while. Doesn't seem to remember much about what happened last night. Jen - Wish I could say the same thing.

Hope - I'm sorry. I don't mean to offend you. You know how much I care about you and I'm trying not to judge. Brady - But you think that I'm making a big mistake marrying Kristen, don't you? Hope - We're talking about Ciara. You don't want to hear this but no I don't trust Kristen. I'm sorry but I don't want to have to worry about my little girl idealizing her, romanticizing her. Brady - I understand. I do. It took me a long time to understand that Kristen is not the woman everyone thinks she is. She's a good person. I know you don't believe me right now but you're going to find that we're going to have a good marriage together. Hope - I hope so. I really do hope so. Brady - I believe you. I'm late. I've got a lot of things to do. I'm hoping you'll attend.

Nicole pounds on Daniel's door calling out his name. Are you there? I really need to talk to you. Dan gets off the elevator. Dan - WTH are you doing here? Nicole - I didn't know where else to go? She starts crying. He holds her. It's okay.

Kristen - It's just that I remember you and Brady talking that Daniel had suspicions that maybe somebody poisoned you at that hotel. Does any of that have to do with Nicole? Did you remember something that implicated her? Eric - This isn't any of your business. Kristen - You're right. It's not. But if that was the case I would totally understand because it just kind of makes sense you know. That's how Nicole is. She's so extreme and over the top. And if she in fact did poison you she probably wanted to rescue you so she could be the big hero. If she did something like that I could totally understand why you'd be upset. Eric stares. Kristen - Is there something more?


Segment 5: Anne shakes Theresa and tells her to wake up. We need to have a little chat. Theresa - Go away. Anne - I'm not going anywhere until you tell me exactly what happened last night with you and Dr. Kildare. Theresa - What? Anne - Dr. Jonas. If we're going to pin anything on him it has to be soon. Theresa - He saved my life. Anne - That's his story but I want the truth. Did he give you those drugs? Theresa can't remember. Am I going to lose my job? Anne - I hope not. You're more useful to me here in the hospital besides this is your first offence. I'll take care of it. Theresa - Thank you. I owe you. Anne - You can say that again.

Jen opens the door of her home to Brady. Kristen said you wanted to talk about the wedding but she's unavailable so will I do. Jen - Oh. Brady - What is wrong with you? Jen - I'm so sorry to tell you this but I can't be there.

JJ is standing outside Theresa's room when Anne walks up and asks him what he's doing here. JJ - I came to see my mom but I heard about Theresa. I wanted to see how she was doing. Anne - Why do you care? JJ - She's a human being Anne. Anne - You know your mouth is the only smart thing about you. Oh and if you're looking for your mother, she went home early. What a surprise. JJ - I'll get going. Always a pleasure.

Marlena gets off the elevator and sees Anne approaching the nurse's station. I got your text. What's the emergency. Anne - Thanks to Dr. Jonas, the hospital's reputation is in real danger. His behaviour last night was inappropriate on so many levels. Marlena - What does that have to do with me? Anne - Am I missing something? You are this year's head of the Ethics Committee, right? So isn't it your job to hold him accountable for his actions.

Nicole is sitting on Dan's couch now. Eric thinks that I ... Dan - That you what? Nicole - I can't even say the word. But he's wrong. I didn't do anything to hurt him. Dan - You guys go way back. You've been very close lately. This will work out. Nicole - No it won't work out. I can't ever see him again. Dan - That doesn't make any sense. What did he say that you did? Nicole - I can't right now. Do you mind if I lay down for a little bit. We can talk about it later. I got really tired all of a sudden. She cries - I didn't do anything. I didn't do anything to him.

Eric - I won't talk about this with you and I have things to do. Kristen - Okay. Like I said, Brady is so sorry. He thought he was doing what was best for Nicole. He realises he made a huge mistake and if he could do it over again he would. You know how much he loves you though, you're his brother. And I respect you, you know that. Can you find it in your heart to forgive us and agree to marry us after all. Eric - I'll think about it but I can't make any promises. Like I said, I have things to do. I hope you don't mind showing yourself out. He leaves. Kristen mutters - My God, how much does he remember? What did you remember?


Segment 6: Vic - Marlena and I are both upset about Brady marrying Kristen. Since John's not here I'm comforting her. Maggie - You don't comfort anyone. I walked in on a fight. I want to know what it was about. Vic - You're making a big deal out of nothing. Maggie - Then tell me what it is. Vic - Do you trust me? Marlena and I are not planning a heist. We're not planning a coup. Nothing like that. We're just trying to protect Brady. Maggie - Okay, I'll let it go for now but whatever it is you're doing it better not end up hurting anybody that I love. Vic - Unless you love Kristen DiMera you've got nothing to worry about. She's the one I'm after.

Abby and Hope are at the pub. Abby - I guess Chad and I made peace about everything before he left. I'm still really angry at him for what he did but I'm really going to miss him. Hope - So what happens now? Abby - Now I think I'm going to take a break from dating for a while; go solo. I don't need a guy in my life to be happy. Hope - You're so right about that. Good for you honey. How are things going at home? Abby - Fingers crossed ... great. JJ just told me and my mom that he's done doing drugs for good. Hope - Thank God for that! That is such good news. Your mom could use some good news after last night, that is for sure. Abby - Why, what happened? Hope - She didn't tell you? Abby - Tell me what. Just tell me, I'll ask my mom if you don't. Hope - Theresa overdosed last night. Daniel brought her into the hospital. I didn't know they were dating.

Jen - I know this is going to sound really silly but I can't be there if Daniel is going to be there. I love you and Kristen so much but I can't. Brady - I know you're going through a rough patch ... Jen - No, this isn't a rough patch. We are done for good. Brady - I don't understand. Jen - Daniel has moved on. It's over.

Nicole is asleep. She dreams that Hope and Eric bust into Daniel's apt. Eric hurtles accusations and Hope arrests are while she proclaims her innocence. Eric snaps - You're not only going to spend the rest of your life in prison you're going to spend eternity burning in hell.

Marlena - Don't rush to judgement here. I'll remind you that Dr. Jonas's drug test came back clean. Anne - But test results can be altered. Marlena - There's no proof of that but I did hear that if he hadn't brought that woman in when he did she would have died of an overdose. Anne - Yes he claims not to have been there when she overdosed but how do we know for sure. He could have given her the drugs to get her in the mood. Marlena - You are so grasping at straws here. Anne - You know what hurts institutions. Not that a bad thing happened but the institution covering it up. We can't take this man's word for it. We have to investigate. Marlena - I'm not going to put Dr. Jonas through a witch hunt. Anne - So what you're saying is that he gets a free pass because he's a surgeon. Marlena - Easy here. I will talk to Dr. Jonas. I will ask him what happened. Anne - Good luck with that. He spent 2 mins. with his girlfriend, his patient and then he went home probably to sleep it off. Marlena - Then I will leave him a note to call me but until you hear from me you keep your speculation to yourself for the sake of the hospital. Marlena goes into Dan's office muttering - That woman is a complete and utter pain in the ass. She looks around for a pen which conveniently is right next to the flashdrive.


Segment 7: Hope - Talk about bad timing. It was horrible. Your mom was there when Daniel brought her in. Abby - No, it's just too weird. When Theresa dropped Daniel's bracelet I thought she was just doing it to make it seem like they were dating just to mess with my mom. It can't actually be true. I was just with my mom, why didn't she say anything to me. Hope - I think she's really embarrassed. Jen - My mom cares about Daniel so much. She's probably devastated.

Brady - Moved on? What are you talking about? Is he seeing someone else? Jen - I guess you haven't heard. Daniel brought his latest flame into the hospital last night. I guess they were hanging out and she suddenly OD'd.

Anne is next to Maxine by Theresa's bedside. Is she still asleep? Maxine - Yes. Now leave her alone. She needs to sleep. After they leave the room Theresa opens her eyes and smiles.

Dan opens the door to JJ. You can not be here. JJ - I need to know what's going on with Theresa. Did she say anything? Dan - She can't. She doesn't remember what happened last night so for now as long as we stick to our story no one will know you were there when she OD'd. JJ - You're going to be stuck covering for me and everyone is going to think you were there to sleep with her. Dan - That's a lot better than you going to prison. Nicole hears all this.

Kristen is in the rectory talking to herself. Whatever Eric remembers he seems to think it was Nicole which works out great for me. Oh God, if he remembers that much, is he going to figure out that it was me. Yes! So I have to know exactly what's in Eric's head. The only person he ever talks to is Daniel so that's what I need to do. I need to pay a visit to Dr. Jonas.

Marlena finally discovers the flashdrive. She starts to laugh. OMG. Kristen's flashdrive.

JJ told his mom he is done doing drugs, can individuals just stop (cold Turkey) without help?
I don't think he did anything besides smoke weed, did he? People quit that cold turkey all the time.

I really loved the Eric/Nicole/Daniel scenes, although it was a little strange and plot pointish that Nicole suddenly asked to lie down. Days has done a great job laying out exactly why Eric thinks Nicole raped him, and yes he's being very mean, but people who just got violated aren't usually beacons of calmness and kindness, and with good reason.

Anne has gone off the deep end. She was fun when she was just bitter because Jen was being allowed to coast due to nepotism, but her intense hatred of Jennifer and Daniel makes no sense. "You are a slacker, so I'm going to spend every minute of my life trying to crush you." ^o)
