Current Plots Discussion: Actually Today's Episode

Recommended Posts

Ciaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrra could have solved the Jordan problem more quickly if she had pressed the nurse's station button for help. Duh. Surely someone would have heard all the clanging from that room.

I did like Ben at the end. For the first time, he felt the emotions of a normal human being put in to a difficult position where yes, you could have taken your sibling's or really anyone's life.   The circumstance brought that possibility. He did not react as a serial killer with no emotion. He was shaking at what he could have done. A moment yes, but he was real. And there was some self-awareness.

I bypassed the Abs and Chad reunion scene. Too soon and too fast for them to be back together. Til they implode once again because her highness Abigail must have her husband worship her from below. Liked Jennifer carrying the doll around in the blanket.

Hope, the amour from your French boyfriend. Rafe is too dull for you.

Sarah, you acted like a jerk calling your former coworker and friend. Doubt she will be your friend any more. For a grown up doctor, you have tons of emotional issues and demons to deal with. As for the Valentine's dinner, surely there were leftovers. Unless stuff was really portioned out, there are always leftovers. Nice of Rex to bring donuts. Both he and Sarah don't quite belong together.

We got to see Chad debase himself apologizing to Abigail again, we got to see him deflect Abigail when she tried to take at least some responsibility for what's happened - not that she tried all that hard - and then we go to see them consummate their lurve.....

Yes, let's not let Abigail even pretend she's going to accept responsibility!  And did show REALLY have to bring back the Chabby "love" song/earworm?  I had actually forgotten that atrocity and then, yes, they had to play it AGAIN!  With additional verses!

Man but I feel bad for the city of Paris--the Chabby family are relocating there--YIKES!!  So now Chad can't even reference Abs' illness, it's now "Stefan took advantage of her when she was vulnerable?"  Yeah, good luck with this marriage.

How much do I adore Will and Sonny's not giving a crap about Gabi's revenge plot against Abby?  She's their family and they will always look out for each other--WOO HOO!!  I also love that Gabi took Leo out of the picture even if it was for only a little bit and she was ready and willing to help with more.  She is so hardcore :)

I do love Sonny and Will and I want them to have a future together but how are they going to get Leo out of their lives?  Diana has actual dirt on him but she won't ever reveal it, so what happens next?  I did love how disdainful Marlena was with her though--Diana may be able to bamboozle John but Marlena?  Not so much

This is PURE speculation.  But do we really think Gabi didn't do any snooping last night?  I'm hoping Eli and Lani open the envelope and it's random photos of Gabi's pillows.

Yes, Abigail wasn't even crazy she was "vulnerable."   Please go, but why doesn't Chad just ask Stefan to give him an island and cash?  Then no one would ever have to hear from them again.

I love Gabi so much.  I'm glad they are finally putting Will and Sonny back in her orbit.  The three of them scheming to get rid of Leo is going to be fun.

Also, I'm probably alone at the table, but I like Eli and Lani.

Will and Sonny all that Gabi has since all the other men in Salem have turned their back on her since she is not perfect like they think Abigail is.

Today was definitely a Gabi-recovery day for me.  I still think she went WAAAAAAYYYYY too far but I do love her commitment to Wilson.

Someone needs to tell Leo's mom that Mr. DeMille is NEVER going to be giving her a close-up.  Seriously.  I cannot buy her as anything but EVIL.

Chabby-ever-after in Paris works for me.

I actually enjoyed Eli and Lani today.  So Redstone, shift a little so I can get my chair at that table too.  I'm not sure I'm staying but today was good.

How convenient that Chad is needed in Paris like ASAP. Not the usual trip to find a home and then relocate say a month or two later, after all the stuff at home is packed up and shipped over. Plus work visas are arranged. But good riddance to Abigail. The show needs a break from her for a while.

DId enjoy Gabi filing her nails while Leo was tied up - nice nod to GabiChic with the garish cushion strategically placed on him. Also liked the huge scissors. Nice that both WIll and Sonny did not rake her over the coals for what she did to Abs. Family through and through.

Nice of Eli to get Lani tickets to the symphony. Never saw her as a classical music girl, but who knows. He could have a nice nap during the cello concerto. Too bad it wasn't the music of popular films such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.

John, you do need to find out the truth from Diana/Gloria Swanson about Leo. And find the contact information for any other women you have dated over the years to see if they also have kids.

Chad, I'm going to miss you.  Or to be more accurate, Billy Flynn, I'm going to miss YOU.  I liked Chad a lot for the longest while but it's past time for him to go.

Abigail, don't forget to not fasten your seatbelt when you fly to Paris, and in fact, see if you can sit by an open door on the plane so you can wave at us.  

giphy.gif

Oops!

Don't you worry, I'm sure Chad will marry again.  

Gabi is everything.  Show is doing something right and for me, this is it.  Bollie would be wise to steer clear.

A shame about the Gabi Chic pillow - after where it's been  it has be to be destroyed.

I hope I hope I hope I hope Gabi did something to Leo's envelope.

Well, I'm a sap, but I admit to being teary-eyed when Chad kissed Will & Sonny good-bye...that was an emotional scene and played well by all 3 actors.  I really enjoy Billy Flynn and love that his real emotions came through.  I do wish that Marci Miller was still playing Abigail for the wedding scene, it would have made it more meaningful for me.

I got teary-eyed too.  Chilson has more chemistry, imo, than either version of Chabby.

Also, just came across this Tweet about that scene:

That was a sweet goodbye for the actors, but I don't know why Chad was dressed like Fonzie.

So if Julie set up all the arrangements for the wedding, and Jennifer invited JJ and Jack to the wedding, what was Abby doing. Because I still didn't see her taking care of her invisible children.

Watching how good Billy Flynn is with LK, CM and FS makes me so angry they wasted him on the Abigail character for years.  I won't miss Chad and Abigail pairing one bit, but I will miss Chad with every one else in Salem.

Leo better watch his back.  Marlena don't play.

Also, I wish they'd lay off the makeup for Judith Chapman.  It's distracting.

Yes.  Leo needs his ass handed to him.  I get he had an abusive father.  He's still ENJOYING causing people pain.  Get some therapy and move outta Salem.

JJ ... doh.  You shoulda come clean to Haley.  This can only end in tears.
Jack -- you just gave JJ the perfect solution -- marry Haley to give her a green card.  Of course IRL it doesn't work like that.  Like, at all.  But Jack is going to regret his sudden parental engagement on this topic.
Jennifer -- I'm glad you have a little joy in your life.  You've had a hard year.
Kate -- I like you on most days but being a jerk to the nursing staff is just rude.  You are not above them and they kept you alive.  Find some humble pie and eat a bit.
Julie -- thanks for being that person who gets shit done

Chabby -- I'm here for your wedding and Chabby Ever After!

I met him at the gate, was asking him if the seat next to him was free, young fellow looks up and it was Ben 😁 I said oh my, I recognize you from TV, but I don’t want to embarrass you. Big bright smile, said “All good! I’m Rob.” And shook my hand. He’s my new favorite character now! I told him I couldn’t wait to tell this forum and again he smiled.

Is this the way Kate deals with all of the "little people"?

Nooo, don't rely on Justin to defend you!

I wish Show would remember that Chad stole money from Sonny and that's why he went to work for Victor in Europe.

If I were introducing myself to somebody who had amnesia, I think I would explain relationships besides just giving my name.

What all did Julie do in a couple of hours?  Buy some flowers?

I see Abigail didn't go with Julie's choice of the yellow.

Wow!  Can't wait to hear the details.  While I'm not a Ben fan, I do have a fondness for RSW because of what the cast said about him on the short-lived All My Children online reboot, they loved him.

How EXCITING for you, and how cool that he sounds so cool.

I believe Chad/Abigail have a son, no? So why isn't he at the wedding? LOL. I didn't give a shit about any of the Chad or Abigail scenes because I don't give a shit about either of them. I loved Abigail's wedding attire though.

Kate being a bitch to Haley was boring, but then I'm mostly over Kate. Loved her dress and, especially, her shoes for the wedding though.

Ugh, another ep without Gabi and therefore I didn't care that much.

They are not innocent, but, Leo started this mess by messing with Sonny with his false allegation, you don't mess with somebody's ability to earn a living and their family.  Leo did both things, so, I don't feel sorry for him at all. It is obvious that Ron is setting up Leo's departure with his scene with Marlena..

Leo also strangled Will, which is what led to the accident when Sonny threw him off of Will. They really, really messed up in the aftermath, but they didn't seek out Leo to do him harm.

I'm not denying Leo's having run a scam on Sonny - and hey, you know who paid 0% for her role in this mess?  Our old pal Kate - nor have I ever said that they purposely set out to do him harm.  But the messed-up stuff they were doing in the aftermath?  Crime.  Not trying to get Leo medical help, getting rid of evidence, of bodies?  Crime.  So the attitude from them and others - i.e. Marlena - that their hands are completely clean here is not accurate, in my view.

I mean, obviously, nothing's going to happen to them.  Their crimes are being investigated by family members and the police commissioner is the police commissioner despite having covered up a murder.  But their attitude about this situation is irritating to me so I'm glad this part of the story, at least, is almost over.

ETA...thinking about it more, I wish they had skipped this whole murder/"murder" cover-up altogether.  If they needed to jettison Leo for a while, they could have just had him busted for faking the sexual harassment and fled town and then come back later to try and run some other con on them.

Kate, you really didn't have to be so nasty to the Salem hospital nurses.

I did like you and Chad, though, and that you treated each other as family.

Also liked Chad's scenes with Will and Sonny. The unlikeliest of friends - DiMera, Kiriakis, and Horton.  I will miss Billy Flynn, but hopefully he can move on to better pastures.

Julie, you do get things done, but of course, having staff helps.

Abigial, I do hope you washed your hair for your wedding. Didn't really like the pantsuit.

Will and Sonny will probably not get more than a slap on the wrist for what they allegedly did to Leo.

JJ, you be careful with your memory-impaired father. He doesn't know you and he has only spent a few minutes with you. You have no idea what Eve is really up to. Zip thy lips.

Ollie Weston has done a major reset on crime in Salem.  Now, you have to murder at least 4 people, preferably more, and they must STAY dead.  Anyone comes back to life and you're back to zero.  Murders less than that count as misdemeanors and attempted murder, assault, littering, off leash dog walking is punished only by a 500 word essay and a heartfelt apology.

So Sonny and Will did nothing wrong.  Though getting rid of that rug, now that was a crime against fashion, anyway.

Is ANYONE EVER going to ask who TOOK those pictures of Leo getting rolled up like a cigar in that rug?  Anybody?

I know that Julie and Doug no longer go on cruises, but I still think Julie deserves to get away from it all.  Has she considered premature burial?  

Not only is it restful, but it's also heart healthy,

giphy.gif

digging her way back out.

I'm only thinking of what's best for her.   I'll send her some brochures.....

I loved Kate and Chad today, love that Show resisted making Kate Chad's real mother, let the love between them be the way it was.  

As so many of you have mentioned, the scenes with Chad and Sonny and Will were just superb.  It was a tremendous soap moment, one where the reality of the actors crossed over into the story.  I'm going to miss Billy Flynn, he was a treasure for a long, long time.

Boes, eventually someone will possess the Salem Brain and ask who took the photos of Leo in the rug. They could very easily be fake and staged. The Salem PD is pretty full now with Sonny, Will, and Jordan.

Billy Flynn was indeed fabulous in his scenes with LK, CM and FS. I’ll also miss those baby blues. Although I haven’t enjoyed him as much of late, he was a breath of fresh air when he first arrived and had great chemistry with so many/ that it was a shame he got kinda stuck in Chabby.

Kate’s shoes at the wedding were almost as fabulous as BF.
