My problem with it was that Julie called it a Scotch rye, did she not?  That's... not a thing. 

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but whiskey can be Scotch (whisky) or whiskey can be rye... but it can't be both.  And I agree that it wasn't $200; a 12-year-old bottle of Scotch is usually $80-$100.  

Glennfiddich is about $60 or. Final cost depends on alcohol taxes. Restaurant drinks are usually 2-3 times the price of the bottle.

Maybe in Julie World it's a thing? Heaven knows Julie Fubar doesn't live in the same reality as the rest of us.

So true. Not from day one when she was first introduced as “ghoul girl” .

I thought it was  true to character and Nadia was great!

Now, all  grown up..nothing has changed as far as that goes. And it should have.

And she could have definitely stood up and taken Jan down today . Especially with everything at stake. She’s a mom, Claire is her friends daughter ..and Jan Spears has always bullied her. You’d think she’d go ape-shit on the psycho!

Chloe, you aren't some waif. You can easily have taken Jan down. So Kidnap Kabin still exists? No one bulldozed it down? Jan, everyone knows you killed Charlie. You will have kidnap folks for a while. Was that a fire rigged to start when someone opens the door?

Wonder what Paulina's real plans for Horton Square are? How nice that she thinks it will be a legacy for Jules and Carver. Doubt her intentions are to make it better. So she and Marlena haven't had anything to do with each other for years and are now going to be friends?

Ben, you don't tell your dad about your dead sister being a conscience to you. At least he told you to go for a drive and clear your head. South Africa is not cheap and you probably do need a passport and other documents to go there. Not like it is an hour drive to Chicago.

Good for Phillip for telling Trask what is really going on and that Belle is in jail because Claire's been kidnapped.

One could also argue that Jan is holding a gun in Chloe's face, and because Chloe is a mother she doesn't want to risk her own life by bringing a knife to a gun fight.  The gun is probably going to win.  

There was the potential for an interesting thought experiment into whether Chloe could actually kill Claire in the way she killed the drug lord when her life was on the line, but Those! Writers didn't go anywhere with it.  

Was Paulina's reveal that she was lying to Marlena about her plans for The Square some hint at Paulina being the next Mustache-Twirling Villain?  That was weird.  

I don't even mind Belle going to jail for Charlie's murder if we get to see Linda Dano's Vivian dishing up some snark at her.  

Pleasantly surprised that Jan reneged on her word to set Claire free if Belle confessed to Charlie's murder.  She totally scored some points with me on that one!  

Ben showing up to save Claire from the Fire Cabin made me chuckle.  Even a serial killer can find love in all the wrong places.

This makes me wish the movie A Quiet Place took place in Salem.  With her foghorn for a mouth the aliens would turn Julie into Spaghetti-O's in no time.

Now for something completely different - why was the bed made up at Kidnap Kabin, complete with folded extra blanket at the foot of the bed?  

That has to be the world's  worst Air BnB ever.

True, I live in a state with ridiculous taxes.  But she also said it was her "best bottle" which would be better than what's on the shelf at the liquor store.  Either way - not $200.

The cabin has charred walls, no roof (from the shadows), yet the furniture is perfect.  Nothing about it made sense.

I could be wrong, but I've never seen one.  There are actually pretty strict regulations on the production, labeling, and advertising of Scotch whisky.  (I think ryes are American and Canadian.  To be called a rye, it must be distilled with at least 51% percent rye grain, and I think to be Scotch whisky it still must be a majority of barley.  They can add rye to the barley, but it wouldn't be the required percentage to be called a rye.)  Sorry for getting off topic. 😳

Julie's rules ans comments about alcohol should be taken w grain of salt anyways. When the famous Abby drugging by Gwen happened. Abby and Chadouche ordered a (entire) bottle of champagne to celebrate her story. 
 

julie opened it away from table and brought the open bottle over with full glasses (which was how Gwen could drug the toast). That's not how wine service goes .... like at all.

A restaurant or bar would never run out of alcohol unless there was a very good reason, like a shipping or supply issue. You would have regular delivery.

Because I was genuinely curious, I kept "researching" (aka googling) and I found 1 on the market - it was brand new 2018.  They started growing rye in 2014 and from what I can find, they have 2 selections that are aged 3-4 years.  (Nice article here in case any one else is interested: https://www.whiskyadvocate.com/scottish-distillers-making-rye-whisky/)  

So... Julie is still an idiot.  She can't have a bottle of "12-year-old Scotch rye."  

I'm sorry that I went a little off topic, but little "mistakes" like these can take me completely out of the scene.  I don't even know what she was ranting about because I lost focus after that tiny, irrelevant comment.  It happens frequently to me.

When Tom and Alice were running things, did they really care about diversity?  Julie didn't seem very caring about diversity when Eli's parents got together.

Shouldn't Claire and Ben get out of that smoke filled cabin instead of carrying on a conversation?

Gotta have those gummy bears.

Finally some resolution to this story?

Why did RW do that horrible fake cough like he did after saving CIAAARRAAAA? It was especially jarring since Claire had absolutely no cough and was speaking just fine.

The way he said it made it sound like he has loved men and I wish that were true lol.

I loved everything involving Chanel, Paulina, and Abe. I’m interested to see where this is going.

The coughing in the Ben/Claire scenes took me out of it because like COVID ya know lol. Also, this was my first time in awhile watching Ben and I had forgotten how annoying RSW’s manner of speaking is. It’s so strained. Is it because he’s trying (and often failing lol) to hide his Boston accent or does he just talk that way in real life?

The Philip/Melanie story was tragic and no wonder the actor left the show, he was as disgusted as the rest of us.  The show acted like Stefanie who was just gorgeous was nothing in comparison to Melanie.  Talk about delusional..

Tom/Alice helped anyone but Days after Bill Bell left was one of the whitest soaps out there not much in diversity until recently.

Julie wasn't against David/Valerie because of their race from what I recall she did mention others may not see the beauty in their love because of it though.

While I was glad Chloe fought Jan for the gun and didn't need Philip to jump in and save her, I did wonder where this fighting spirit was when Kristen kidnapped her from the DiMera mansion. Chloe couldn't have acted more helpless if she tried; I mean, Kristen didn't have a gun or knife on her, all she did was twist her arm behind her back and Chloe basically gave up.

I laughed when Jan told Chloe to keep her body sounds quieter. Yeah, I've been in a car trunk for 3 days and haven't eaten anything. I do wonder if the car trunk experienced other bodily functions or Chloe's been able to hold it for all these days.

I don't recall Tom and Alice Horton embracing diversity but I haven't watched the show for all the years it has been on. For a while, the show was pretty white and Irish/Irish Catholic. Just a few black people and hardly any Asian people.

Wonder what Paulina's real plans are for the Horton Square. I am not sure I am buying Chanel as some sort of baking whiz. To do really well, you have to have some talent. There is one baker in my city who does amazing cupcakes that look like they have flowers as icing. Buttercream Boutique? People do need to eat but you do have to have a product folks will want. Will she do breads? Cupcakes? Cookies? Gluten free stuff too? Yeah, she has seen Eli and the goods. She will see more unless Lani and Eli establish house rules.

Good for Ben for rescuing Claire. He should have pulled her out of the cabin and he could easily sit outside the cabin since it is a crime scene. Hope Shawn called the cops to seal off the place. Time to bullzoze it.

So Phillip was able to get the plane, money on very short notice, and gummy bears? At least Chloe somehow rescued herself with Phillip wearing a stupid grin.

Haven’t watched yet..but hey... he thought Chloe was the lOVE of his life, but really just his “first love” . Then hipster, bad boy, then redeemed Broadway-musical Brady came between them. He fought hard and lost. That always hurts 
 I personally think he and Belle  are better than nu-Shawn, who is absolutely boring.

Stephanie was narcissistic, obsessed and jealous. Melanie was  ridiculous, but at least ridiculously fun. And stupid 

I’d rather see Philip with Gabi or 

Chloe, rather than with Brady.

Heck , even Nicole would be okay with me.

So someone left an entire set of expensive knives at Kidnap Kabin?  WHO is going there all the time?  The place is a burned out shell, but somehow none of the furniture has been rained on or inhabited by animals.  And Jan's booby trap was pretty lame.  Ben managed to get the fire out in about 2 minutes tops.

Jordan sleeps there when she's not tormenting Ben as his Guilty Conscience, and she makes the bed every morning.  

It was funny to me that Ben still wanted to hang out in the cabin after he almost Char-Grilled Claire.  Like that didn't kinda kill the mood of going there to Not-Sign the divorce papers?  

It seems like the Show doesn't like to kill off its female villains, so the only real mystery left for me regarding Jan is whether she'll actually get sent to Statesville, or she'll get to sneak off into the shadows like Kristin.

That, and Shawn made the point of saying that it reeked of gasoline.  So I guess Ben wanted to get high?  (Or just a headache and nauseous...)

Is this cabin the Horton cabin on Smith Island, or a different cabin?  I thought it was the same and mentioned to a friend how easily accessible it's now become, when before I thought that you could only reach it by ferry.  I thought that Jan was sneaking around way too easily for needing a ferry, and shouldn't Ben have passed Jan and Chloe on the dock?  (Only Shawn getting there in a police boat made any sense to me.)  But alas, my friend told me that I am wrong, it is indeed a different cabin.  I wondered why the door was moved to the other side...

I just do not understand the obsession with this character. Yes he's handsome but my gosh the actor can't act at all! The character is never going to work for me, no matter how many damsels in distress he saves. He's a serial killer! Period.

In addition to the spin off of Lucas walking around town making snarky comments, I want a spin off of Xander walking around just annoying the sh*t outta most people - especially Julie. Remind me again, isn't it Jack and Jennifer's house? So why does Julie take such ownership of it? "It's MY couch! You ate MY donuts!"

I know it's all to set up Plot! as Dr. Snyder is Very!Suspicious! but Tripp - don't actually follow a doctor into a room with a closed door. They are very likely having a consult with a patient.
