Days of Our Lives Friday, January 5, 2018 Ahhh, Roman finally evidently got a kiss. Or two, or more. LOL. Eric enters the locked Pub, it’s empty, but Roman comes out tucking in his shirt, saying he decided to close on New Year’s Eve to give himself a day off. But, a female voice is calling from in back, cannot find her earring, must have lost it in his bed……..ooops, she spots Eric, and he spots Anna!! Seems it was a last minute decision to visit Salem on her part, Roman mentioning chatting with her the other day. So, they spent New Year’s Eve together. Small chatter, she leaves to go find her earring, does so, while Roman chats with Eric. He tells of spending New Year’s with Jen, talks of how much he misses Nicole, doesn’t know why she left town Anna has now gone outside…and guess what, there is a bit of snow sprinkled on the ground, a few of the vine leaves , Anna sits on the bench. Yes, she is wearing a coat. LOL Hope and Jen are together, jabbering away, Hope talking of Ciara, she doesn’t know what is wrong with her, so much anger. Jen tells about Ciara throwing Jen’s addiction in her face, and then the driving drunk and killing his best friend at Eric. Hope is so sorry, no idea what is bothering Ciara, and when she stopped there this a.m., Ciara was still passed out drunk. They go to the station, have more of the same conversation. At DiMansion, Chad & Abigail want to know what the DNA results are, Kate starts blathering, Andre & Vivian rush in, Andre saying it is too bad, he is sorry but results are accurate, he read them himself. Stefan is the son of Stefano. Chad doesn’t believe it, Stefan says take as many tests as you want. He also informs everyone about them moving in, and owning the house, and now thinks they should talk about the company. He wants Andre & Kate to continue running Countess Wilhelmina, Abigail to continue in her P.R. work, and Chad to continue as VP. Chad refuses, quits, walks out. Stefan asks if anyone else feels the same, Abby walks out. Andre looks thoughtful. Stefan is glad they stayed. Abby & Chad are having drinks at the Club, talking about Stefan, of course. Then what now. Chad remarks they are jobless and probably homeless, she talks of starting their own business, perhaps, he talks of losing Thomas’s legacy, she finally says they have to fight back, prove Stefan sabotaged the company, but need to be inside with access to do that. She figures they should go back, play good cop/bad cop, she will apologize for her husband’s hasty remarks and walkout, blah, blah. Meanwhile, Andre is talking with Kate, and rather awkwardly, in fact very awkwardly, admits he has feelings for his wife, and while they don’t have to remain married any longer, he thinks they could make a go of a real marriage. Kate is not saying anything (gosh I really do not like that hairstyle) is a bit surprised, then says she needs time to sort out her feelings. She leaves………..and goes to the club, sits with Chad (Abby has gone back to the lion’s den). She & Chad jabber about the business, with Chad saying that they can defeat Viv & Stefan if all 4 of them work together as one. Jen has come to the Pub, spots Anna outside, is surprised, a hug. Anna explains her last minute decision, says she is outside as Roman & Eric are having big, father/son talk. Jen wonders what about, Anna doesn’t know, except caught a bit of Eric saying how much he missed Nicole , the big love of his life. Jen’s face falls, she suddenly is not feeling well, and departs. Inside, Roman is telling Eric he is happy that Eric & Jen are getting together, wishes him much happiness. Rafe is with Ciara, gets her to admit she overheard, and knows Rafe & Sami had sex. He is trying to explain, she is running off at the mouth, til he finally gets her to shut up for 10 seconds, tells of Hope losing the commissioner job, him getting it, things getting out of hand, words being said, and he is finally able to tell of Hope giving his ring back. Ciara did not know that. He talks of him & Sami both being in a bad place, lot of pain, it just happened. Yada, yada. Ciara says her mother deserves to know, he agrees, only asks he be the one to tell her, it should come from him. Knocking at the door, it is Hope, who goes on and on to Ciara about why she is acting this way, all this anger, then Hope spots Rafe, who says he came to see what was bothering Ciara about him. Ciara admits she did tell Rafe, and now Hope wants to know what it was. Rafe is starting to explain. Abby is knocking on Stefan’s door, saying it is Abigail. He says, “come in”. She opens the door….and there he stands, just out or going into the shower, I guess. She takes a step back, averts her eyes. Andre is in the sitting room, alone, talking to Stefano’s picture, assuring him he will save his legacy. In comes Vivian, commenting on him talking to himself again. She closes the door, telling him not to worry, they are alone. He asks if she is really sure. She gets up close and personal, puts her arms around his neck, oh, yes, safe to be alone with my business partner. Andre takes her arms off his shoulders, but holds onto them. Starefest.
