    Days of Our Lives
    Friday, September 8, 2017

    Hmm, mostly a fun episode, despite dragging a bit in places. Chloe is on the phone with Parker, when a knocking at her door. Tis Lucas, sober, coming to thank her for helping him with that whole Anjelica thing. They talk, he goes on about how he swore it was Adrienne in bed, all hot and heavy, ready to go, doesn't understand how it could have been Anjelica. She reminds him that although he has had a bad time of it, after losing his son, then Adrienne change of heart, he has a lot of people who care about him, who love him, and asks him to please go to a meeting today. He promises, and after a hug, takes off.

    Adrienne has finally been let out of solitary, but the guard says if she doesn't behave, she will be going back. She asks when she gets her phone priveleges back, he gets ticked off at her asking favors already, says it will be 3 weeks. She will do anything, he looks her up and down, gets the wrong idea, she catches on, will let him know later. A bunch of inmates come in, have some goodies, sort of a celebration, Sheila is being released, there is a card to be signed. Adrienne takes advantage, writes a note to Justin, then gets Sheila aside, has to a lot of talking to convince her to take that card to the Kmansion, give it to Justin. She will get rewarded, lots of money, not to worry. Sheila is hesitant, but finally agrees to do so, takes the card.

    John & Marlena try desperately to get out of their ropes & harnesses, to no avail. He asks what the electro shock does, she explains there can be forgetfulness, he thinks they have too many to allow that, tries all the more to free himself.

    Paul comes to see Hope, needs her help, his dad is missing. Marlena said he was on a mission, but Shane says no, he is not. So Marlena lied. Weird. Hope agrees, and they go to find Marlena.

    Replay in the square of "Marlena" announcing Andre' as being mentally incompetent. Andre gets upset, not true, she gave him a clean bill of health, but Marlena says he is dangerous, recites a long list of his crimes over the years, posing as Tony for years, kidnapping, Salem Slasher stuff, (tells the reporters to look it up), and saying he is mentally unstable, should be committed immediately. Andre is having a fit, Roman gets hold of him to hold him down, two guys in white coats haul him off.

    Paul & Hope have arrived, get filled in. Jennifer gets a statement from Kate, Roman talks to Hattie, firmly telling her there can be nothing between them, there is no longer any spark, etc. Hattie's face falls. Then, Roman is telling Hope & Paul this is just not like Marlena, then tells the tale of Marlena dumping John, and planting the kiss on him, out of no where. As Hope listens, her face changes, she tells Roman & Paul they are right. It is not like Marlena, because that is not Marlena at all.

    At the Kmansion, Maggie, Bonnie, Justin & Victor are having "tea & scones", as Maggie makes comments about Anjelica being in Adrienne's room, and then showing up dead. Bonnie is taking offense, wondering if Maggie is accusing her of anything. Nope. Justin learns and tells that Anjelica died of natural causes, was a heart attack. Maggie did not mean to hurt Adrienne's feelings. Victor asks about Holly, wants to see his grandchild (??) spend time, Maggie goes up to get her. Justin gets a business call, goes off to take it privately, leaving Bonnie to flirt a bit with Victor, get on his good side or something. She pretends to be tearing up, sobbing a bit, Victor ignores her, she asks for a tissue, he hands one, goes back to his paper, she gets loud with the sobbing, he asks if something is bothering her. She starts in, tearfully complaining that Maggie doesn't want her there, was accusing her of something about Anjelica, and even made her answer the door, treating her like a servant, doesn;'t want her there. Victor notes that Maggie may be upset about her dumping Lucas, who is family, etc. Bonnie pours it on, Vic will speak to Maggie, oh, no, that would make it worse, just between us, she pleads. He agrees. She smiles, thanks him, compliments him, her hand goes on his knee. He looks at her in surprise.

    Andre is brought into Bayview, a room where John & Marlena are also being held. He stares in disbelief, thinking some trick is being pulled on him. Marlena finally convinces him that she is Dr. Evans, that this is all Hattie Adams, who has been impersonating her for weeks now. (And with 3 guards in the room, listening to every word, not a one does a thing). Andre is flabbergasted, but realizes it now all makes sense. He begins shouting that this is all a mistake, they all need to be released, Hattie needs to be arrested, she is crazy. Of course he gets dragged off, put in a strait jacket, & into a padded room. He swears Hattie will pay for this.

    Hattie is in her hotel room, sorry she won't get Roman, but happy she got revenge on Alfie. Now she had better get out of town, before they realize what she has done. She starts packing. Knock, Knock. She opens the door to find Hope standing there. Hello, Hattie.

    Justin has ended his call, is going back to rejoin Adrienne (Bonnie) & Uncle Vic, but someone is at the door. He opens to find Sheila standing there. Can I help you? I think we can help each other, she replies.

    A great write-up Poirot. This show is worth watching just to see Andre carted off to the looney bin! Love it!!

    Wow, I was surprised by the mention of the 80's Salem Slasher storyline and of Marlena's cousin, Trista Evans.

    Thanks for the summary. Can Andre please stay in Bayview for a bit? Sure, he's gotten better, but he's still untrustworthy and needs some straightening out!

    So Hope finally put it together, and hopefully Justin will too. Or will he not say anything, because he doesn't want Adrienne with Lucas? Hmmm...

    We got some mentions of past storylines at the press conference. That's always a nice touch. These writers really know what they're doing! I also liked the Chloe scenes with Lucas, and her on the phone with her son.

    I loved the scenes with Andre, Marlena and John, when Andre first noticed them! I know Andre was bad but I just like the actor so much!

    I liked Hope being in on this and away from the Raines/Dario case! Same with Paul, instead of just being Sonny's boyfriend or fiance. lol I also liked Chloe and Lucas but I almost forgot they were on with so much space between their scenes!

    Victor was in grandpa mode today and I wonder how good those scones really were?!

    Really enjoyed today's show. Loved the reactions of: Hope, when she realized "Marlena" is Hattie; Andre, when he first saw Marlena & John & learned about Hattie; Victor when "Adrienne" put her hand on his knee.

    What I didn't like: Nicole just got Holly back and she's already leaving her with Maggie? And, that guard implying that "something" could be worked out with Adrienne/Bonnie. So, so cliche.

    Maybe she's doing community service. I would rather leave a child with a capable family member than with a stranger any day.

    Andre: If he'd kept his composure, he could have threatened the idiot Bayview guards with DiMera revenge. The guards may think he's crazy, but they know he's a DiMera and must be aware of the awful fate of those who seriously cross members of this family.

    Bonnie & Hattie; The jig is up for these two. They should have done a little research and learned the fate of two other fakers who overstayed their Salem welcome, Sy and Arnold "Fake Rafe" Finnegar.

    Bayview: This place is a disgrace with its flouting of proper commitment procedures and abuse of patients' civil rights. When Andre gets out, he ought do everyone a favor, pull a few strings, and have the place declared structurally unsafe and uninhabitable, meaning that it would be razed to the ground.

    Lucas: It was good to see him sober again and headed for a meeting. When she gets out, will the real Adrienne like his new mustache and goatee?

    The DiMera Enterprises Board: Since when did this pack of fools get so much power? Kate needs to put them in their place. If they'd so much as given Stefano a funny look, they'd have been off to some secret island, Melasawen, or worse, to join their deceased ancestors.

    But didn't Nicole say something to Eric like "You're going to miss me"? And she said something about him being able to drum his pencil on his desk again. Besides, with all the lamenting and carrying on about getting Holly back, it just seems like she let someone else take care of her awfully fast, kin or not. I just think they could've come up with a different excuse for Maggie to leave the room. Just my honest opinion.

    And no formidable Mr. Shin??? Even via cell phone or something like that? LOL

    Brady spoke to "Marlena" about dad, did not suspect a thing. Paul speaks to her, and does. Roman, too. As does Hope.

    WHY has Brady been turned into such an idiot, jealous, brainless, ready to be in love with every woman he sees. LOL

    @Designing Woman....Agree.....with the way Bonnie was scarfing down those scones, why not have Maggie go get some more? LOL

    I thought it was odd that the entire episode focused on the doppelgänger story.

    I agree. I thought the show was heavily focused on doppelgängers and they'd pop up again. Even though Lucas is technically part of the story too. I really hate that Allie is never mentioned. Will always gets mentioned but Allie doesn't.

    Line of the day to John: "Electroshock therapy isn't on my bucket list"

    I don't like that John and Marlena were almost bonding with Andre. Marlena seemed to have tears of happiness when he arrived. She would never do that.

    Hope knew it was Hattie as soon as Paul mentioned kissing Roman. I don't know why we had to wait the entire episode for her to reveal it. So dumb. I do like that she's finally involved though.

    I thought the ending should have been John and Marlena starting the electroshock therapy, not Sheila at the door. Bad cliffhanger.

    I don't think Roman suspected anything until Paul started talking to him about it. He certainly didn't in the Pub scenes. Actually very disappointing to me.

    I sure hope Hattie and Bonnie are soon on their way out. At least reading the daily show review on here gives me the option to skip that garbage. To me, it's like fingernails on a blackboard and I've made up my mind not to watch till they're gone, gone, gone.

    Thanks, Poirot.

    I saw the light bulb go off when Paul was talking to Hope at the cop shop.
    He talked about Marlena breaking up with John and kissing Roman. Hope
    must have known then it was Hattie.

    I loved Victor's face when Bonnie touched him.

    Enjoyed Hattie's smile after they took Andre away.

    Hopefully, Lucas will go to a meeting after he left Chloe.

    Will Shelia give Justin the card or will Bonnie hear her voice and
    come out
    of living room to see her?


    Is it summer or winter in Salem? Jennifer is wearing a sleeveless outfit
    and Victor is wearing a heavy sweater inside the mansion.

    When the "men in white coats" showed up I kept hearing a song in head.

    "They're coming to take me away, ha ha to the funny farm, ha ho ho!"

    Overall, I liked the show today.

    This was very annoying.
    Not by name, but they did mention her a few weeks ago.

    I figured Hope would be the one who figured out it was Hattie, not Marlena. She has been the one most recently in close contact with Hattie and knew she had a grudge against Andre and a crush on Roman. I just wish she could have been brought into the story earlier. She almost said Hattie's name at one point right after she and Paul came on but stopped. I wasn't sure if for some reason Hope was holding back or she didn't realize at that point it was Hattie or the actress almost slipped up to say Hattie. It was easy to see the light dawning on her face as she figured out it was Hattie.

    Roman and Andre though were pretty dense not to figure out it was Hattie at first. Both of them had also been in contact with Hattie during the past year. However, they did explain it a bit with Andre when he was talking to John and Marlena that there is such a difference between Hattie and Marlena in their intellect and personalities that he never would have figured that Hattie could pull off a trick like that.

    Seriously, what is wrong with those orderlies at Bayview? They heard the way John, Marlena, and Andre were talking. How often did Marlena in the past commit patients to Bayview? The fact that she put 3 people there in a short period of time and that all of them had told them that it was Hattie that committed them should tell them that something is up. At least investigate the matter instead of just going ahead with orders coming from Hattie.

    I thought it was strange that Victor was not snarking away at Adrienne like he does usually. However, he stayed buried behind that newspaper until Bonnie put her hand on his knee. It was so unlike Adrienne that I am pretty sure he will eventually figure her out.

    I don't think Sheila will give Justin that card. I bet Bonnie will come out and recognize her and the two of them will hold onto it to keep Adrienne in the prison.
