    Days of Our Lives
    Monday, April 17, 2017

    Tears & laughter on the agenda today, as Chad breaks down and Abby tries to explain her reasons for feeling she cannot be his wife any more, he belongs with Gabi. He denies this, tears down his cheeks, he loves her. But Abby goes thru it all. How he had to choose when they were poisoned, and came to her first...but only because all along he knew Gabi would catch the vial when he threw it. She tells of the yearbook, how Gabi was his secret pitching coach, how they go way back . He pleads, cries, talks of having saved her (Abby) a number of times, she is adamant, they go back and forth, he accuses her of running away again, as she always does, as she did before. But Abby says she will never love anyone as much as she loves him, but she deserves all of him, not just a part. He is crying, pleading, she is crying herself, kisses him one last time, takes off her rings, he is saying no, no. She sets them on a table, leaves the room.

    Andre, Kate & Jen are walking with Thomas in the buggy, wondering what is going on back at the mansion. Kate gets her claws out, insists that Abby probably realized Chad belongs with Gabi. Jen defends, talking of the beautiful vows Chad recited to his wife, then tells Kate to stay away from her daughter and Chad, for she will answer to Jen. She leaves.

    Chloe comes into the Club, tells Dario she is sorry about his dad, did he get any further info about Holly? Dario is rather short with her, tells her those informants dried up when Ed was arrested, so he has no way to help her any more. Chloe gets a call from Eric, who wants to see her. She wonders why he thinks she would want to talk to the man who killed the father of her son. He says it is about Holly. (He had been looking at the "still wanted, no sign of Nicole news pics". She goes to see him, he tries to talk some sense into her about Holly, Nicole, mentions Solomon telling the 2 mothers fighting over a baby, that he would cut the baby in 2, knowing the real mother would not let him do that. He tries to convince her that the welfare of Holly should be first, and that she should make her peace with Nicole, so both Nik & Holly can return to Salem. Chloe leaves. Jen has heard the last part, comes in, says he gave her good logical advice, except Chloe has never been one to accept logic.

    She tells him the vow renewal did not go well, all were asked to leave right in the middle of Abby's vows, she wanted to talk to her husband alone. Eric hugs her, it will be o.k. you will hear from her when she is ready.

    Andre & Kate are having martinis. (fun scenes). They talk of events, she again goes on and on about Gabi being perfect for Chad, strong, independent woman. Andre chuckles, reciting various Gabi has done, modeling, personal shopper, having a baby with a gay man, marrying a sociopath, who she eventually kills, & after getting out of prison goes after a married man with an infant son.

    He claims Gabi is a lot like Kate...and as he babbles on, mentions her having been a prostitute, adds a few adjectives, causing her to throw her drink in his face. He stands up, sputtering, wiping his face, then grabs Kate, kisses her, causing her to slap him. (Sorry, this all made me laugh, it was delightful). Then there she was, wiping his face dry, he is saying he should not have brought up her being a prostitute, she is saying she is sorry for the slap, but it should have been harder. He now wants to get ice for his face. LOL

    So, the two have separated, she spots Gabi, sits her down, and yaps away at what happened, trouble in paradise, chance for Gabi to go after Chad, make her move, fight for him, blah, blah.

    Andre is back at the mansion, walking in on the dejected Chad, who is playing with Abby's rings, tells Andre she is gone. They go back & forth a bit... Andre insists he do something, convince Abby he loves only her, A DiMera does not give up.

    Up in Canada, Brady is having fun, searching the internet for places to live, citing some paradise in Argentina, Nicole doesn't care where, whatever he chooses. He says they have to think up new names (why, thought that was what was going to take 2 weeks??), suggests Laura, no how about Lois. NO, too close to Lolita. She appears a bit down, he is concerned. Knock, knock, in pops nosy neighbor Hillary, with muffins fresh from the oven, still warm. (o.k. everyone, roll your eyes here). She mentions she would have brought their mail, but her hands were full. Brady conveniently goes to get the mail, leaving Hillary to moan to Nicole how Scooter is exercising again, he had let himself go, but is getting back in trim again, and how she thinks it is because of Nicole, sexy new neighbor.She thinks maybe their marriage is over, maybe why he turned to porn. Nik says instead of making muffins for us, why not do something for him. She even suggests going to a salon, schmootzing herself up a bit. Hillary thinks that a great idea. Leaves as Brady returns with a very large box (surprised a mail person would leave it out there, unless their mailbox is the size of a large microwave)

    Neither can imagine what is inside, neither ordered anything. Brady is ready to open, Nik suddenly remembers ordering stuff for the kids, grabs the box. And idiot Brady just takes his laptop to go do further house hunting in another room. (reincarnation of Rose Nylund - Golden Girls?)

    Nik opens the box, black & red panties & bra, a note from Scooter, cannot wait for tonight. She shoves the items into a gym bag, no idea what happened to the box, Brady comes out, she talks of being grateful for all he has done for her, and keeps doing. She hugs him. She has been rubbing her neck, going to go the gym, get rid of some of this stress. She grabs the gym bag, leaves. (we see a black bra on the floor...oops).

    Later Hillary pops over, looking for jumper cables, Scooter texted her batter died, waiting for tow, will be home late. Only she doesn't know where he is. Brady sorry, Bridget took the car, he gets a text from her, car died, waiting for tow. Don't wait up. Hmmm, that is strange. Hillary says maybe the moon is in Mercury. She get a phone call, & sorry, she has to go. She leaves, Brady spots the bra on the floor, flashes back to Nik telling him about Scooter recognizing her, lightbulb finally goes on. Mutter, no, she wouldn't. Grabs tablet, pushes it a few times, exclaims Maple Leaf motel? He calls someone he met at the community center a few days ago, to babysit.

    Off he goes, is outside a motel room, sees a maid's cart, grabs the all room card key, opens the door. There is Scooter, with a woman's legs wrapped around him.

    Forgot to mention Abby is outside, a light shawl wrapped around her, still in her vow renewal dress, sits on a bench, a wooden one. And of course Dario spots her, she is crying, he sits next and comforts her as she moans about it being over, her and Chad.

    And in the same vein, Chad & Gabi spot each other in a park like area. Both stop, just stare.

    Ugh to both scenes. Just my honest opinion

    I am not a Chad/Abby fan but I do not understand her reasoning. High school was what? 10 years ago? She honestly thinks Chad and Gabi have had this amazing connection this whole time. Wouldn't Abby have gone to high school with them too? That is just dumb. I don't know why they keep rewriting history to put Chad and Gabi together.

    Kate and Andre were weird but entertaining.

    I don't think it's gonna be Nicole in bed with Scooter. I hope she came to her senses and that now she will tell Brady about it.

    She was in college in England, tho, when Jen first returned to Salem, she left it to follow her mom, and finished college in Salem.

    That's what I was thinking of. I knew she followed Jen from England and had been going to school.

    Line of the day: "You gave Chloe a big dose of reality. Chloe and reality don't have a strong relationship.":rotfl::rotfl: Or something close to that.

    I'm lost with this whole Chad and Gabi connection. Where was that connection when they were models? And he loved Melanie, and not Gabi???? Made up history that doesn't jive with what we've seen in recent memory is just bad writing.

    Chad was wonderful today.

    Ugh, indeed. These ridiculous "coincidences" just make the who plot seem more absurd than it already is. Equally absurd was what was coming out of Abigail's mouth. Chad's pained expression was probably replicated in homes across the country as viewers witnessed her nonsensical performance. Even Sami Brady would have been shaking her head. Elsewhere, the sourpuss's "dose of reality" to baby-thief Chloe overlooked one key point. No matter what the doofy diva decides, Nicole is on the hook for kidnapping. Raines would love to make the arrest and darling Melinda would be eager to convict the former babyswitcher. Finally, what appeared to be the one-take goof of the day occurred when the actress playing Hillary said: "Brady, you are a lucky man."

    Kate and Andre were weird but entertaining, I agree! I favored Andre in this, though. Kate give it a rest!

    What I agree with Abigail: she told Chad she wants his whole love and devotion (something like that)

    What I agree with Chad: Abigail being a martyr. I wish she would have just stop saying he should BE with Gabi.

    Eric was on today, so that means we get to hear about Daniel again.

    I couldn't remember Abby as part of the high school gang, now I know why. I hope Chad fights for her but I don't think he will because of all she's done. I think he's tired of trying.

    Nicole and the Canadian Crew: I literally read a book during those scenes. Seriously I refuse to watch this claptrap.

    Chad and Abigail: I think this is a case of the actors transcending the writing. I think both Billy Flynn (Chad) and Marci Miller (Abigail) both both scored touchdowns with their performances, Ha! I bet you thought I was going to go with the baseball metaphor didn't you? Nope not going to do it! LOL

    Anyway I thought they were great. As for the Abigail/Chad/Gabi triangle goes, I really didn't mind it in the beginning but I think it really descended into idiocy like everybody else. I've said it before and I'll say it again, all three deserve so much better.

    Kate and Andre: I appreciated having something lighter to go along with all the Chad and Abigail angst. And I would like to award Andre what I hope is the first annual "Hush Your Mouth" award. I mean the things he wa saying about my girl made me see red at first but then I remembered this is Andre and he sees things through a very twisted outlook. He's not supposed to know what he's talking about. LOL

    Was it Troy that called Hillary Glady Kravitz? I realized today when Hillary came
    a calling with her excuse with muffins that maybe she is.

    It didn't take long for Kate to get a kiss from someone after her "love" Eduardo left.

    I laughed when Andre told Chad about Abigail "She's such a different person now".

    Dario made a drink Heartbreak Amnesia. Gabi asked if it worked for him. He said
    not so much. Gabi said if you want to get over Abby start dating someone new.
    She's been hanging out with Eli and it helps. Dario replied "he's not my type" :)

    JJ went to school in England, too. And of course, Abby has that Irish land. :rotfl:

    Scooter/Nicole/Brady/Hillary: NO.
    Chloe/Eric/SaintedEggBaby: NO
    Abby/Chad/Gabi Nonce: NO
    Kate: NO
    Kate: NO AGAIN GO AWAY
    André: The thrill is gone.

    Chad had great lines today. He said everything I wanted to hear. While I understand Abby wants his whole heart, Chad definitely loves and is committed to her, so why is she making things so difficult to move forward?

    I mean marriage is hard work and Chad has expressed repeatedly that he is willing to put in the work while Abby keeps making excuses. Maybe she does not deserve Chad's devotion after all.
