    Days of Our Lives
    Wednesday, September 18, 2013

    Kudos today go to James Scott & Joe Mascolo (EJ & Stefano) get the awards today. Really great scenes. The Godfather for sure. But first, let's get some of the smaller stuff out of the way. Abby continues to gush & confide in Gabi about her "first time". Cameron eavesdrops for a while, then leaves. Abby talks of telling her mom, then decides against it since it was a DiMera.
    Replay of Chad's flashback with his doctor, us learning he has no tumor, and his search for a plausible treatment on the computer. He finds one that he feels will work, and will leave no trace, no Cam or Kayla won't ever know he wasn't taking it. Cam arrives, not too happy for Chad's togetherness with Abby. Chad fakes a bit of a headache, in order to close his computer, Cam gets him some water, they chat, with Chad assuring Cam he would not want to hurt Abby, and is very happy, blah, blah, blah.

    Kate runs into Jordan, who is abrupt, cold, businesslike. She says Rafe is progressing, has a long way to go, no idea for timeline. He has therapy in a bit.
    Abe talks to Rafe about Sami's chances being practically nil, especially with Kate's testimony. Kate comes in as Abe is leaving, with Abe telling Kate she did not have to give the prosecutor more ammunition. Kate tries to explain to Rafe how she had no choice. In comes Jordan, out goes a reluctant Kate, but she will get some coffee. Jordan runs thru a couple of exercises with Rafe (he sure is lookin' good,) when Gabi arrives. Jordan gives them 5 minutes, so Gabi quickly runs thru pics of Arianna on her phone, Sonny busy with the club, Will worried about his mom, everyone is fine, tho. Time's up. She skedaddles, Jordan has Rafe do a few more exercises, he is doing well.

    At the trial, Sami is worried because EJ is not there, Roman is called as witness. He gets sworn in, and Trask immediately pounces on her father to testify how often Sami has been caught lying. When Roman tries to give explanations, she cuts him off with "yes or no". She asks about lying in family court, and goes on and on how Sami lied about Lucas hitting their son, and in fact, lying about the paternity for years. She quickly withdraws the questions when Justin rises to object..but the jury is hearing it all anyway. Sami is looking sadder and sadder. Finally Roman steps down, she mouths to him, she loves him, he does the same back.

    And now let's get to the juicy part (she says gleefully, rubbing her hands together). Replay of EJ realizing Stefano has the razor, has had it all along, telling Stefano he has to turn it in, have one of his flunkies phone in a tip, it was found in the hospital. You have to save her. Stefano doesn't HAVE to do anything. And now EJ asks what he wants, telling him to take it all, the house, the companies, all of it. He just wants Samantha back and free. Stefano wonders why EJ thinks that "things" are important. They are not. He picks up a chess piece, EJ angrily dumps the table on it's side, chess pieces to the floor. No games. Take all it back, all of it. I only want her.
    Stefano smiles....you disappoint me, my son. I thought I taught you better. The light bulb turns on for EJ, who says "you have been 5 steps ahead, haven't you? You had this all in motion when you went out that door". Stefano chuckles, yes. Flashback to Stefano telling EJ he would be begging him. And EJ does. down on his knees he goes, begging Stefano to help free Sami, he will do anything, anything at all. What is it he wants?
    And Stefano gives his orders. After all this is over, if Samantha is free by some miracle, you will remain in this house, you will be my son. You will work beside me, do whatever I ask. You and your family will remain in this house until I decide otherwise.
    Yes, father, says EJ. Stefano holds out his hand (I believe the one with the ring on it) towards EJ, who knows what comes next. He moves on his knees over closer to Stefano, kisses his hand (reluctantly, it seems). Ah, so.
    EJ tells him to do whatever it is he has to do. Oh, but first, EJ has calls to make, papers to sign. Later, EJ is signing papers, EJ is asking if he talked to the man in HongKong and in England, I think. EJ is solemn, replying that he did, they understand about discretion, don't want the price of shares to go down. He is saying "yes, Father" all the time now. He hands the folders with the signed papers to Stefano, who reminds him that Sami's trial is going on, he had better get there. Yes, father. He takes his jacket and leaves.

    Stefano grins, takes his glass of brandy, raises it, "To MY family". he laughs, then says "Salud" as he downs his drink. He then makes a call, reminds someone of the matter they had discussed, says to "set it in motion". He smiles again.

    Back at the trial, EJ has returned, Sami glad to see him. Roman is testifying. EJ says nothing, despite Sami's questioning looks. Roman is dismissed, Abe comes in, calls Melinda aside, telling her something has come up. She is extremely displeased, but has not choice. Justin, Sami have no idea what is going on. EJ is quiet, just looking down. Trask tells the judge that Abe was to be the next witness, but a very urgent matter has arisen, so asks for a recess until Abe is available. The judge grants it. Out in the hall, Roman asks Abe what is going on, is this going to help Sami. Abe just pats him on the shoulder. We see Abe on his phone to someone, no slipups, everything to the lab, and checked 3 times over.

    Sami is back in her cell, Justin still has no idea what is going on, what happened. EJ is looking thru the bars at Sami, a confident look on his face.

    Today Show was out of this World... Ej and Stefano were the Stars of DAYS today!

    Joe Mascolo (Stefano) OWNED James Scott (EJ) in those scenes, In my opinion!

    Stefano has now taken custody of EJ's manhood from Sami from today on

    EJ kissing Stefano's ring is a refreshing change from him constantly kissing Sami's fanny!

    I do appreciate EJ on his knees begging/pleading and groveling to Stefano like a little puppy asking for a bone!

    Ej is now Stefano's YES man!

    I did watch the show today it was worth it watching junior crying, sniffling, begging on his knees and kissing Stefano’s ring. Sami is getting herself a real man there. Can they make the great Elvis DiMera any more pathetic! They call this love…really!

    Wouldn’t the kicker be if the best Dr. DiMera money can buy misread the x-rays and Chad really does have a tumor?

    I love now the old goat is gloating to Kate about his great day!

    I like Rafe and Jordan Rafe has seems more alive today then he has been in months. Gabi was cute telling Rafe everything in five minutes.

    Stefano gets the emmy for the day! I just love it when he puts junior in his place at the bottom of the food chain.

    When Stefano ordered him to get up, EJ probably left his last shred of dignity lying on the floor...Not so arrogant/cocky huh Junior!

    I honestly am jumping out of my skin with anticipation of seeing the EJ/Stefano scenes. Sounds like I'll be able to go back to loathing Stefano after I watch today's episode. EJ needed humbling. The mansion and Dimera Enterprises, though crookedly gained, were not his to take. He thought he could just toss Stefano out like last week's garbage. Everyone warned him Stefano wouldn't just roll over and play dead, but he continued to foolishly underestimate the "old man".

    The singular "yes, fatha" responses are making me feel like a kid on Christmas morning. If only we could get more of this..."kiss the ring...yes fatha", "go clean your room...yes fatha", "fetch my cigar and slippers...yes fatha". Stefano you ole rascal, job well done!

    The scenes between EJ and Stefano were fantastic. I absolutely loved watching EJ have to offer up the world to Stefano all for his precious Samantha. EJ proved once again what a pathetic wuss he really is. I was laughing when he was down on his knees begging Fatha and then Stefano making him kiss the ring. :rotfl: And then Stefano acting all gleeful when he ran into Kate. If ever I was cheering Stefano on, today was the day!! How much you want to bet EJ won't inform Sami how this new evidence came about and then when she's freed and goes back to the mansion, she's going to be like "what the hell is HE doing here?!" LOL. This should be good!

    OMG. Chad/Abby/Cameron is so dumb. I like Chad and Abigail together better than her and Cameron but now I want Chad to be found out. I just don't give two hoots about Cameron to really care.

    I really need Rafe's therapy to pick up pace. I'm getting bored with it. I need him to be up and about already!

    It was funny that Cameron overheard Abby and Gabi talking about Abby losing her virginity, had time to make it all the way over to Chad's apartment and read him the riot act, all before Abby and Gabi's conversation was over. Then he made it back to the hospital, was back in his white coat just as Abby comes out of the room she was in with Gabi. Geez, how long were Abby and Gabi talking about death of Abby's virginity???

    Chad lying to get into Abby's pants and being so smug about it makes it hard to root for them as a couple!... Chad is quite slimy.

    edited to replace word....JS

    "Fatha, everything is on the table, that's all I have, please...fatha". I wish I could offer some heartfelt insight into this tearful plea of EJ's but all I have is :rotfl:

    EJ groveling before the mighty Phoenix -- priceless. Bo Brady and other Salemites who do not hold Elvis Junior in high regard would have loved it. As for the trial, somebody should buy Judge Simms a copy of Evidence Law for Dummies. Since the defense has not made an issue of Sami's reputation for truthfulness, any testimony by Roman that she lies a lot is totally inadmissible. If a Salem miracle wasn't about to save Samantha Gene from the clutches of Melinda Trask, all of the judge's bone-headed errors would have ensured a new trial if there had been a conviction. Finally, this Jordan seriously needs some sensitivity training. If she had Nicole's job at the rectory, poor Father Eric would soon find himself fresh out of parishioners.

    Today's episode reminded me the time Rafe handed Ej's his butt to him in the Town Square while John and Lucas looked on!

    This has been Days best episode in months. Great to see Junior on his knees begging Stefano and kissing his ring to save his Sami. The Phoenix's prophesy fulfilled. Have never seen EJ so down after giving back what he really never had.

    Oh, can you just imagine if Lucas and John (I still can't believe what's been done to this character, but that's off topic) had witnessed this, like they witnessed the fight between EJ and Rafe ? Oh, the juicy lines we could have gotten ! :rotfl:Oh, well, I'll just dream them up !
