    Days of Our Lives
    Tuesday, April 18, 2017

    To continue the Canadian drama....Brady bursts into the room at the Maple Leaf motel, sees the couple rolling around in the bed, yells ...What the hell is going on...the couple break apart, shocked...and it is Scooter & his wife (who is dressed evidently in some cheerleading, Locker Room Lolita outfit) Brady stutters, apologizing, babbles something about not trusting Bridget, he is sorry, shuts the door. Nicole shows up. What are you doing here?

    And over to the splitting up couple, with Abby crying on Dario's shoulder, telling him all, explaining her reasons, on and on. At the same time, Chad is telling Gabi what happened, and how Abby had seen a message Gabi wrote in the yearbook, so doesn't think he really went to Abby first...only because she figured he knew Gabi would catch the vial, etc. etc. Gabi is urging him not to give up on his wife, he is insisting he loves her, his family, Gabi says then go home and fight for her. Get her back.

    Claire is making out with Theo on the sofa, when in comes Ciara & Wyatt, with Ciara noting these are the roommates I told you about. They chat a bit, Claire is so glad Ciara has found someone, Theo gets up and leaves the room. More chit chat, Ciara & Wyatt are leaving, Claire hugs Wyatt, glad to have met him, don't mind her, she is a hugger. They leave, Theo comes back, he is quiet, nothing wrong, just has to study for some exam. He takes off. Jade comes down, heard it all, tells Claire Theo is jealous, Claire denies this, claims Theo is really into HER. Jade says, why, because you are having sex. No big deal, it is just sex. Claire is on her phone, her tablet, having a fit, is losing subscribers, Jade takes the tab let, read comments about the music being all the same, sounding sappy, cover your ears. Claire gets upset, Jade asks about that record producer, but he keeps putting Claire off in re: an interview. Now Jade suggests making a sex tape, using some channel. Claire appears to be insulted, grabs her stuff, and is gone.

    Ciara & Wyatt are at the Pub, trying to decide what to do next date, each wanting the other to make the decision. She says he go first, she will do it next, she gets call from study partner, leaves the table, giving Wyatt time to mutter something like, Hey Boss, where is the list of Ciara's hobbies, oh, yeah, here it is. Ciara returns, he suggests skating, she loves the idea.

    JJ runs into Gabi, while he is trying to contact lhis sister, Gabi tells him what Chad told her, they go over it a bit, Gabi is defensive about hearing it from Chad, it was an accident they bumped into each other. She tells that she told Chad to go fight for lhis wife, would never ever come between Chad and Abigail, even tho she loves Chad. She goes off.

    Brady & Nicole are back at the house, she explaining what happened. She tells of Scooter knowing who she really is, blackmailing her, how he also knows who Brady is, so she at first thought she would go thru with it, but then Hillary came, told her of trouble in the marriage, wanted to spice it up...yada, yada. So she got hold of Hillary, gave her the costume, sent her to the room, then intercepted Scooter, told him that it was his wife waiting for him upstairs, wanting to spice up their marriage, get it back on track, loved him.

    Brady praises her.....they see someone outside, Brady figures Scooter is still stalking his "Misty" goes and brings him in. But Scooter is there only to apologize to Nicole, realizes she is not that Misty person, is a different woman, grown, a mom, he is ashamed of himself. Brady is rather short with him, but Scooter is really sorry, loves his wife, they are leaving the area, going on a 2nd honeymoon, will be getting couples counseling before she returns to work, and not to worry, he won't tell anyone about her, her secret is safe with him. He leaves.

    Nicole is thanking Brady for everything he has done, that when she went on the run with Holly, and thought of Salem, what she really missed was him. And then he came, he is there.......and she is finding it very hard to say what she wants to say, but finally takes his hand, and says it.....she loves him.

    At DiMansion, Abby comes down stairs, packed suitcase, (having changed her clothes) grabs her purse just as Chad comes in the door. He doesn't want her to go, begs, pleads, this is not how this night was supposed to be. She is firm, is sorry. Her mom has Thomas, they will spend the night with her, tomorrow she will send movers for the rest of their things. She assures him they will share Thomas 50/50, is sorry his time has to be split between his parents, but it is best. She again tells him about how he can be with Gabi., but he says no, that he will be right there, in that house, waiting for his wife to come back.......Again. She goes out the door, shuts it behind her, and cries against it.

    Well, that was a wimpy ending to Scooter and Hillary. Too bad Scooter wasn't trying to attack Nicole, and Hillary had to shoot and kill him.

    Thank you, Poirot.

    Can this show get any stupider???? :sad:

    The Scooter / Hillary junk was a waste of air time the entire time the characters were on. The only good thing was the actors got a paycheck.

    Wyatt is disgusting . I think the hug sealed the deal that he's working for Claire. Speaking of Claire, talk about a waste of oxygen.

    Abby needs a mega-Gibbs' slap up the back of her head. :whack:

    Okay......at this point if I were Chad I'd be telling Abigail to get the hell out and to not let the door hit her assets on the way out. There is nothing more Chad can say or do at this point and now it really is just Abigail who doesn't want to be with Chad. Everything else she has said to justify not marrying Chad is crap. Move on Chad.

    Maybe Abby can come across Chad out with some woman she has never seen before, and get a wake up, it was not Gabi, not at all. Just all in your mind, girl.

    Originally I was very glad that Chad and Gabi never did the deed, but had I known they were gonna do this ridiculous "they have a connection", "they belong together" crap then I wish they would have actually been together for a month or so. Totally and completely committed, then maybe I would buy this, but now it's just ridiculous. I could've slapped Gabi when she said to JJ "I love Chad." To me, that was pretty much "I love Chad, I pretty much didn't give a crap about you."

    Glad the Nicole/Scooter stuff is over. Sweet, ridiculous resolution. But thank goodness Scooter and Hillary are off on their second honeymoon.

    Since we all think it's Claire working with Wyatt, I'm betting it's not. Maybe it's Theo? He cares about Ciara, wanted her to be happy but he's still having a hard time with it even though he committed to Claire.

    I really hope that we don't have some sort of gathering where Chad and Gabi, and Abby and Dario are sitting together, having a great time, drinks, friends, etc. I know if the couples end up together they'd be family, but still.

    Claire, oversell much?

    Only by going to Jupiter.

    Sorry that was a rhyme my spawn used to taunt each other with.

    But I think using their teasing taunt, no the show has been to Jupiter and back. It is now almost insulting.

    Thank you so much for watching this.

    Does she ever. Just when it seemed that she couldn't get any stupider, she comes out with remarks like "I'm getting a grip on reality" and "I'm seeing it all clearly." Really? This is big talk from a woman whose past reality includes stalking Austin Reed, trysting and showering with EJ, trying to burn Ben alive, a spell in Shady Hills, pretending to be dead, and boarding in Jenny's attic. And what's with thuggish Dario? Instead of concentrating on new and better ways to make an illegal dollar, his first concern seems to be the semi-deranged Abigail. Finally, will somebody please, please make Claire and NuJade go away. There have been many characters in the past who were an utter waste of screen time, but these two go to the head of the class.

    They make me long for "dancing girl in HTS" to be a front-burner character. Or even to see Fred the Elephant in a storyline again.

    I felt the chemistry tugging of Gabi and JJ today. It's really too bad that isn't focused on more but I think that's over. I just said this on Monday's post but we really need Jack back to shake his daughter!

    Okay, we spent decades on Hillary's husband leering at and harassing Nicole and, what's that? It wasn't decades, it was only a few weeks, are you sure about that? And this is all we get? The two nutbags get that old loving feeling back and and are skipping off hand-in-hand into the sunset, or at least couples counseling. As Dana Carvey's immortal "Saturday Night Live" character The Church Lady would say: "Well, isn't that special?"

    This "story" was not worth the paper it was it was printed on. It was not worth the press of the buttons to type it. This was an idiotic story. This was a pointless story. This was a WHY THE HECK TELL IT STORY!!!

    *Ahem* Sorry but I just had to get that off my chest. I'm better now.

    I will say I did get a chuckle out of this bit of dialogue from Nicole: "My first instinct was to shoot Shooter and frame Hillary. But I decided differently." I don't know why but it tickled my funny bone for some reason. LOL

    My guess if Claire is indeed Wyatt's "boss", the intent is not malicious. Sure it's desperate and immature, but not malicious. To be honest, I'm not sure it is Claire just because that's too obvious but on the other hand, I can't think of anybody else it could be at the moment.

    Abigail/Chad/Gabi: Okay, so we established that Chad wants to be with Abigail. Gabi encouraged Chad to work things out with Abigail. YAY!!! So she pretty much established she has not intention of interfering then this really can't be considered a triangle can it? So why don't we let Chad and Abigail get their you-know-what together and move Gabi out of their orbit and put her focus on Eli if that's where it's going?

    Speaking of Gabi, I loved her snark free conversation with JJ. It gives me hope. I admit I'm torn because even though I do like her with Ell so far, I would for her and JJ to maybe be given a real chance if that's in the cards. The fact that they keep having scenes together seem to be pointing in that direction.

    That's probably is going to be what's going to happen Poirot.

    After the prerequisite quadangle, of course. :)

    There were several words the youngsters used today I had no idea what they were
    talking about. And I didn't care enough to look them up.

    Does anyone else have a bad feeling Claire will do the sex tape and not tell Theo?
    Interesting this was brought up when Hillary and Scooter were copying one.

    Did Theo leave the room because he is jealous of Wyatt?

    I'm glad Nicole wasn't in bed with Scooter and it was her idea for Hillary to be
    there.

    I enjoyed JJ with Gabi today.

    Who are these people and better yet, WHO GOT PAID TO COME UP WITH THIS JUNK AND PUT IT ON TV!!?!?!?
    These characters are idiots. I wish a big fireball were headed for Salem.
    I'll give Ms Higley and Company (head writers and her underlings) credit here - this was not expected, and was a nice twist. I was afraid this junk would go on for another six months.

    I agree the Hillary, Scooter storyline was ridiculous. My only guess is that it was a very lame attempt at showing how Nicole has changed. Hello writers, we already knew that, now give her her baby! I think it's Theo that found Wyatt and now he is feeling jealous.

    The Hillary/Scooter story ended rather quickly and unbelievably I might add. It makes me wonder if the writers had to wrap it up and change direction of the storyline with Nicole so they could move on to something else. It just seems like a waste to create the escalating tension and conflict with Nicole and Scooter, just to have a conclusion with Scooter and his wife like the one shown today. Painfully lame and embarrassing story telling that Days has lowered itself too.

    I do believe it is Theo that is feeding Wyatt info on Ciara. I think he is doing it because he cares about her and he thinks Wyatt may be good for her. (Perhaps Theo and Wyatt are good buddies and Theo knows Wyatt is a good guy). I hope that Wyatt is not a jerk and does not have any intentions to harm Ciara.

    This new Abigail is a hot mess. Bring back Kate Mansi (ex-Abby) pronto. The love story they wrote and told of Chad and Abigail was done so well in 2015-2016. Now they are demeaning their relationship to this? Chad and Gabi had nothing compared to what Chad and Abigail had together. There is no comparison really. This is a slap in the face to fans of this couple. Perhaps the writers see the lack of chemistry this new actress has with the actor playing Chad and they are creating a way to end their marriage so he can later be with someone else (Gabi). I'm happy Gabi is not taking advantage of the situation and encouraged Chad to fight for Abigail.
