Oh the irony after all Stefan did to frame Gabi for prison and a beating she is going to help him keep him out of prison.

They're lucky it's those two because I find it easy to believe they wouldn't know the difference lol.

I found this ep boring. I skipped so much of it. I'm just SO over the Kristen-as-Nicole situation and I get more and more bored by Gabi/Stefan with each ep. Sigh.

I can't understand why this guy continues to keep going with the wacky, over the top stuff. We just had that with the Bonnie and Hattie crap. It's too much! Ugh!

Xander is the man with the mask? Where is he going to hide it? In his box? Does it uh, erm, um, smell? Was it made from dead people or just silicone?

I agree that setting up Stefan is stupid. Nothing ties him to kidnapping Ted or Kate or stuffing them in the wine cellar.

Sarah and Rex - if Eric wants to leave town, let him. Sign the papers to sublet his apartment and let him go.

Eve, you will be going down soon. Your power position isn't going to last. Maybe Xander will put the mask in your property.

I'm really bored with Show currently.  Brandon Barash was the only person onscreen today I had any interest in.  The minute I saw Eric I actually groaned.  Why can't someone lock HIM in the basement?

There's no excuse for TIIC to be treating this show so badly.

Taking Kristen's mask may have been the smartest move Xander has made.  Not that this is saying much — he’s an idiot and all — but that’ll trap the ‘psycho with one red dress’.

She finally found a new dress! She was wearing a black one today. I guess the red one finally got too rank to wear.

Kristen openly going to the door barefaced is kind of stupid.

I don't think I ever see a soap actor actually eating while trying to talk.

Who is going to make the serum for Jack?  Is he going to ask Rex and Kayla?

They haven't figured out that Nicole is Kristen yet?  Idiots.

If I were the management at the Salem Inn, I think I would ask "Nicole" to move out after all of the trashing she does of her room.

Love the Mexican wrestling mask Xander left for Kristen.

Hey, Jennifer, pick up your trash!

Facts AF. The stories are so boring and ill thought out. It’s become the Great Value version of Passions. Eric has complained or felt sorry for himself everyday, saying the same stuff since before NYE.  He’s like a damn pull a string doll... we get it. I’m not sure why Sarah finds it captivating or Marlena reacts with compliments and back pats.

The show is boring but I enjoyed the Jack/Jennifer banter today. I enjoyed Wilson as well. Why can't the show acknowledge that Wilson share relatives, there is nothing incestuous about it their dialogue about Jack and Jennifer was so weird.  A wonderful surrogacy story for Wilson would be great for them.

Eve really lit up when Ted mentioned Ben kidnaped him.  Not the last kidnapping the one before this one.  

Jack and Jennifer were interesting.   

I do wonder if Eve is starting to have feelings for Jack.

I too am getting a bit bored with the show and its storylines.

Who cleaned up the hotel room?

Enjoyed Jack and Jenn and his decision to take the memory drug.

Will and Sonny need something to do.

Gabi, it's going to take a while to get the truth out of Kate about who really kidnapped her. Be patient.

That weird green mask Kristen wore was a hoot. Her voice didn't even sound like Nicole's voice. That mask must have magical properties to change a body and a voice!

Of course, 'Susan Banks' would be welcome at the Kiriakis mansion.

I actually laughed out loud at both of these scenes.  Xander was giving Kristen the business and it was glorious.  

And Kristen answering the door in the mask and Gabi's reaction was priceless.  That was the best.  🤣

CB is very pretty. The dresses she wears look amazing on her. So, there's that. BB seems to be having a lot of fun and getting paid for it which doesn't hurt. I wish ED was still playing Kristen. She is really missed. Will & Sonny are kind of meh. They don't really have a storyline now that Will is okay. I like Jenn & Jack. They have such good chemestry.

The scenes between Susan & Xander aka "Zandy" were a Hoot!  When Susan pulled out the Mexican mask & it dawns on Xander who she really is, was so funny.  And then Susan 'drooling" over a shirtless, sweaty Brady made me LOL.  The funny scenes were good, but I am tired of 'poor Me" Hope.

Hope, cheer up. You are now free of Rafe! I did like Eve's mentioning of many of Hope's past loves - Larry Welch, Patrick Lockhart, etc

Zandy and Susan Banks were hilarious. She did seem oddly behaved to be Susan, but maybe it's just the heat. She certainly was salivating at towel-clad shirtless Brady. The wrestling mask was funny. Zandy definitely knows who she is and is not the real Susan Banks. Nice of Gabi to take his fancy briefcase.

Right?  Show, if you feel like you need to have Jennifer, who has been on like two or three dates with Shah, use his honorific just so the audience knows who she's talking to, it might be worth just casting some other rando.

At this point, I fully expect Shah to become a serial killer when he's dumped by Jennifer again.

In terms of faulty logic, interactions with Jennifer Horton turns you in to a serial killer. Abs, Ben, possibly Dr. Shah, etc.🤣

I am growing very tired of AZ as Kristen being Nicole. I need this story to move to the next phase asap.

I honestly thought were coming to the end of this dumb story. I skim rapidly through anything involving Ted, who's worse than useless to me, so I've probably missed some details, but I was puzzled when Kate and Worse Than Useless Ted told Hope that the Dimera to be blamed was Stefan No! (Uh, buh?)

My puzzlement blossomed into genuine shock when it appeared that neither Kate (who ought to have more on the ball) nor WTU Ted (who clearly fell headfirst out of the clue tree, hitting every last branch on the way down without managing to grasp even the tiniest scrap of a clue) has figured out that Non-Nicole and that woman are the same person -- that there is no Nicole, in fact.

C'mon Kate! You're better than this.

So, let me get this all straight:

Ciara can't stand that Ted blackmailed Will - but is apparently fine with the fact that Ben strangled Will twice (with one of those times thought to have been successful for two years).

Sonny correctly points out that Susan wouldn't be allowed to possess a gun after being in a mental institution - but Ben gets to carry one (I believe at one point in the presence of a police officer) as head of DiMera security.

I think we might have a plot hole or two here, Show. 🤔

The double standard on this show always remains regardless of the writing regime.

I don't know why this surprises you this is the same show that played Bonnie taking advantage of a drunken Lucas for laughs when she showed up with a kid in tow passing it off as his. Yet he thought he was with Adrienne. Not one person took up for Lucas(except kind of Chloe) about what Bonnie did.

Then you had Leo kissing strangers who didn't like it(see Brady) for laughs.

@CanaryFan98, didn't Kristen also drug and rape Eric and had it videotaped to play at the "appropriate time?"

Yes but that wasn't played for laughs. I did think that the story was more about Brady than Eric when it came down to it. They could've had Eric deal with intimacy issues etc afterwards but that would mean the show cares about Eric as an individual and they don't this was a way to get him out of being a priest.

In retrospect he should've stayed one because GV's Eric doesn't seem to have much direction now.

Course they could've had Eric be a shrink like Marlena without going the priest route and neutering him entirely.

Brady's more of a serial monogamist than a cheater or a one night stand kind of guy.  Wasn't he involved with Eve when Theresa was around?

Yes he was but yeah Brady may not make a relationship work but when he's with a woman he's all in. A character driven soap would've tied that with his mommy/addiction issues but this show doesn't think like that anymore.

I like how Rafe knew it wasn’t Gabys briefcase since it wasn’t stylish.  

Ciara is still annoying. 

Poor Jordan.  Everyone else’s mental illness is instantly cured but hers.  So basically as soon as Rafe adopts David he is going to ignore Jordan’s wishes. 

Oh well David will probably be 21 in three weeks and there will be a Ciara, Ben David triangle.

I liked Jordan more than Ben. They should've spiced her up originally and not paired her with Rafe after they made her a generic female like everyone else. I could've gone for a JJ/Jordan pairing (pre crazy) where they bonded over dealing with crazy siblings but ended up falling for each other. Plus they both hated Clyde that also would bond them. Course I would want someone other than Ron to write it. Cin had potential as a messy, dark angsty controversial couple and its been neutered and so generic.

I suppose Roman putting up the Help Wanted sign means that Sonny (who’s been bitching about being out of work) or Ben will get a job at the pub. Of course, entitled Ciara, who really has become a less slappy and less married man obsessed version of Abigail, thinks following a job schedule is optional. She also showed up to work only 5% of the time. 

Xander should probably been happy the briefcase with Kristen’s mask was stolen, then he could claim no culpablity when she comes at him for it and direct her ire at Gabi. I want one of those state of the art Rolf masks that not only change your face, but also body and vocals to the person it’s fashioned of.... I could get one of Lana Del Rey and not only have her bone structure and lanky frame, but sing like an angel and do choreo.

And didn't you love Ciara telling Ben that Roman did her a "favor" by firing her, because now she'd have time to decompress from all she's been through, the poor baby.

Why yes, you entitled obnoxious brat, lots of people would like time to "decompress" , but unlike Ciara, they actually have to work to stay alive, with a roof over their heads and food on the table, not everyone has a money tree up their rear end.

If Show is trying to make her even more unlikable, they're succeeding.

I did laugh when Brady's towel fell off him when 'Susan' was going at him. I had half hoped that her teeth would have flown across the room.

Was it right to show a woman trying to sexually assault a man? No. But a lot of women go through this sort of thing all the time.

Brady should have recognized that 'Susan' behaved a lot like 'Kristen'.

Both 'Susans' both screeching. Yikes.

No, Rafe, Gabi would not have a briefcase/small suitcase like that. Her taste is not that high end. And she probably could not afford it.

Ciara, maybe get some humble pie over the next little while. When you have a job, you are expected to show up. Lots of people don't have the luxury to 'decompress' from stressful things in their lives.

I did like Ben showing a bit of maturity by asking Rafe about seeing his nephew. Ben behaved well - asked politely, shook Rafe's hand, accepted his answer. Jordan may need to switch doctors to Dr. Laura so she can be back to herself in a couple of weeks.  Rafe can make arrangements with social services to have someone supervise a half hour visit with Ben once or twice a month. In terms of Ben being able to use a gun, that would be something that Stefan would work out with the police or whoever is in charge of a license - that would also be supervised.

Yes women go through it all the time it sucks but it doesn't mean its any better if a man goes through it just doesn't get the same outrage because women don't see it as as a big deal when it happens to a man.

Unless they are actually going somewhere with Ciara I don't see what the point of her being fired was other than for a few laughs I admittedly enjoyed. That job was oddly the only thing that separated her from Ben's orbit now she's all about him.
