    Dario goes to the Dimansion, gives Kate gifts from Eduardo. The charges aren't being dropped. The gifts have cards and Kate reads all the notes as we hear Eduardo's voice explaining how it reminded Ed of Kate. She cries and breaks one of them by flinging it across the room.

    Upstairs, Abby and Chad plan for their vow renewal, but he's got a meeting with Lucas. He leaves; Jen sneaks in with the dress. Abby tells her everything will be perfect. They come downstairs as Kate is cleaning up from her tantrum. They excuse Kate and tell her she doesn't have to come back, but she promises to be there, though she doesn't stop from reminding Abby that a vow renewal won't change things. When Kate is gone, Abby and Jen talk about Kate's endorsement of Gabi over Abby. Jen needs teen pics of Chad for a slideshow. Abby has them, a slideshow will be great. Jen leaves and Abby pulls out a box.

    In the Square, Gabi stops JJ, who is carrying a wedding cake. They talk about her sadness over Eduardo, not Chad, which she doesn't want to talk about.

    Rafe interrupts a business chat between Myron (whose program thing is going to bring in several millions) and Dario. Myron is shooed away, Dario is mad at Rafe for the way things went down. Rafe wants GDR to run clean. We review history of who was nastier to Eduardo when he returned. Gabi joins, Papi did this to himself. She has a message from Eduardo to the boys: No fighting.

    At the Square, Lucas and Chad meet, Lucas brags about the Spectator. Chad tells Lucas that a large amount of money was hacked from Countess Wilhelmina last night. Lucas will handle the report so Chad can focus on his wedding.

    At the police station, Hope tells Rafe that she's back on investigations thanks to Rafe lying for her about her part in the Eduardo arrest. Lucas bolts in, updates them on the hacking. They will help even though CW has its best people on it. Lucas names Deimos as a suspect, leaves. Later, Hope comes into the room after Rafe's been investigating. They talk about how foolish it was to bug Deimos, hopefully Raines never finds out. Later, Hope comes in again, tries to send Rafe home, he doesn't want to go home and fight with Dario. Hope invites him to her place for dinner that she will order.

    At the front door of Dmansion, JJ arrives, chats with Jen (who's worried about Abby), then brings the cake in to Abby. Abby fights with JJ about how everyone is treating her and how Gabi and Chad "fell in love" (Ed. Note: That is what they say, multiple times. I'll reserve judgment.) while she was presumed dead. Abby wants things perfect, JJ thought it was low-key. The guests are apparently going to be JJ, Jennifer, Kate, and André only.

    Kate has been trying to reach Gabriella, they encounter each other in the private park area. If you want Chad, act now, advises the hooker with four divorces. She shows him the gift Ed gave him, speaks of how they loved each other. She essentially chases Gabi through the Square, urging Gabi to break them up before everyone's miserable. A bit later, Chad appears across the Square, and Kate again urges Gabi to pursue him.

    Upstairs, Abby tells Thomas that she and Chad will be together forever & ever and reads the yearbook, which causes her to flashback to the warehouse poisoning. Later, she is determined to make a bold move.

    Dario runs into Lucas, who apologises for the arrest of Eduardo and explains that only two people from each family will be at the renewal. Lucas leaves; Myron worries that Lucas is on to their hacking.

    On her way to change for the vow renewal, Jennifer stops by the interrogation room/office to talk with Hope. Jennifer is worried about Abby.

    Thank you, Jason.

    Why the heck is JJ carrying a wedding cake that could've been delivered? Oh, silly me. It is just for the stupid plot thread of having Gabi see it.

    The cake is actually in a small-ish box, about the size that would hold a dozen grocery store doughnuts.

    Oh please enough with the baseball references and how awesome Gabi was at pitching and how close she and Chad were then. Enough!!!

    Hope. Seriously can't stand that woman. She just always has an "I'm better than everyone" attitude. And if Raines buys that she "just happened by and jumped in to help" when Rafe was arresting his father then he's an idiot. As hard as he's been I'm surprised he bought it.

    I love that they still have the picture of Stefano up. I'm glad they are leaving it. Nice nod to Joe Mascolo (Stefano)

    Eduardo "loved" Kate. Kate "loved" Eduardo. Why are they using the past tense? He isn't dead. Don't they still love each other. It bugged me each time someone used the past tense when referring to Eduardo!!

    Gabi needs better lines. To stop JJ (who wouldn't have even noticed her) to say she knows that the cake is for Chad and Abby and she's okay with it, then lights into him when he mentions her feelings. Then the whole dragged out scene with Kate through Salem over fighting for love. Ugh, she needs a backbone.

    I think the theme of today's episode is definitely "What the holy heck are these people talking about??"

    We had Rafe going on and on about respecting the law and his oath and that's why he couldn't let Eduardo walk away. Now maybe I was watching a different "Days of Our Lives" but at this time last year, wasn't Rafe not only constantly reminding Hope that covering up Stefano's murder the right thing to do but was also working to frame Andre for said murder? Wasn't that kind of against his oath?

    Dario going on and on about the importance of family beyond anything else. The law and Rafe's oath be darned to heck. Again correct me if I wrong, but at this time last year wasn't Dario constantly going on to Mama Hernandez, Rafe and Gabi about how Eduardo was an evil assassin and they should have nothing to do with him?

    Kate going on and on to poor Gabi who just couldn't get away fast enough about true love and how Kate had it with Eduardo and lost it. Now I could be wrong here but, okay I think you get the picture.

    I ask again, what are these people yammering about?

    This is my birthday episode so I'll be nice and say thank you to the producers and writers and talented actors who worked so hard to put this episode together. Because I've always been taught it's the thought that counts. But I tried this episode on and I'm afraid it just didn't fit so I'm afraid I'm going too have to return it and exchange it for something else. Now where did I put that receipt?

    So Rafe gives this big speech to Dario about honor, integrity and obeying the law, yada, yada..........and his nose did not even grow a centimeter? LOL. Y ep, the guy who broke the law big time after Hope shot Stefano, talk about covering up a crime! So it was o.k. for Hope to shoot a man, have him die, (yes, I know, Rafe and Hope both now think Stefano is still alive), to roll him up and stuff him into an abandoned warehouse, about to be blown up. And then.....to allow/look the other way when someone confesses to the crime. :rolleyes:

    Then it sounds like Rafe is still lying for Hope today! I used to like each of those two but it seems they are a bad influence on each other. Now I don't care much for either one.

    Oh, and why in the world are they inviting Kate to their renewal, given how she so openly objects to them as a couple?

    Agreed. Since they mentioned it being an intimate ceremony with only a few witnesses, Theo would be the much better option to stand with Chad.

    Another possible theme could be Salemites who have or think they have assumed the roles of some famous names of yesteryear.

    In the fantasy department was Kate weeping over the fate of the "special" love between a poison-brownie baker/habitual backstabber and a retired assassin/career criminal criminal. Sorry, but no matter how many tears Kate sheds, she and Slimy Sr. are no Tom and Alice or Maggie and Mickey.

    Meanwhile Gabi is well on they way in acquiring Sami traits. She already seems to dump poor Arianna the Second on whomever is handy and if she takes Kate's truly bad advice about Chad, she'll graduate to professional man-stealing status.

    Finally, Deimos seems to have acquired a measure of Stefano status by being automatically blamed every time something bad happens in Salem. How long will it be before the citizenry will be blaming Victor's little brother for higher taxes, potholes, and a rise in the price of fish?

    Not only that, but even on today's episode, he was convinced lying to his superior officer about his illegal involvement in this activity was the right thing to do. I'm ready for a hanging.
    AND frame someone else for it, first.
    I'm hoping that Raines is giving this dynamically awful duo just enough rope (no pun intended for my twitter peeps) to hang themselves.

    Thanks, Jason.

    kt, it's a brand new day in Salem. Hopefully, Theo won't be wasting the day
    in bed :)

    My question is, why did Dario steal money from Countess Wilhelmina? Isn't he
    upset with Deimos? Maybe Dario wants the other families to wipe out each other,

    then he would be the winner???

    A nice surprise to hear Eddie's voice when Kate was reading the note.

    I laughed when Jennifer asked Abby for Chad's pictures for the slideshow. He
    looked a lot different in high school.

    The Hernandez business was not doing well. They put a lot of money into the Orwell, which was stolen from them. With Eduardo in prison now for his attempty to refill the coffers, Dario does it ...his way. I guess he picks on DiMera figuring an easier target than Deimos. But since Deimos has been so bent on revenge, guessed rightly that Deimos would be suspected, instead of Dario. Besides, would Dario not be intent on besting Chad, because of Abby?

    I wonder how long Eduardo's sentence would be. His family and Kate are all acting like he is dead or gone forever.

    Kate has her nose in the air whenever Eduardo tried to talk to her, and now she is sobbing and whining over her lost love? Give me a break. PLUS...is this why she nags Gabi constantly about chad? Tell him you love him? She already did that, a few times already. Trying to get Chad NOT to renew vows...what good is that? He is still married. Kate professes to think of Chad like a son (I have not the slightest inkling why?) but if she does, why is she continually attempting to interfere in his happiness?

    Ooops, I almost forgot....no female that makes her sons happy is good enough for any of them. Does she "crush" on her sons?" Kate needs some psychiatric help.

    Kate is overstepping in so many ways right now. Uggghhhh. I find myself wanting to shake her.
