Current Plots Discussion: Actually Today's Episode

Recommended Posts

There are active Salem brain cells today!

Kayla, your bangs are too long and that hairstyle gives you flat head.

Ciara, Justin, and Kayla are doing some decent detective work. Now to just find Jordan's baby daddy and maybe talk to him about a few things.

Surely Ben's last meal would be more than catfish.

John, drink the water from the bottle Hope was using. Neither him nor 'Doc' could break the window?

Tony and Anna were good for some exposition and seeing a very different side of Steve Johnson. Not exactly brainwashed to be Stefano but close. Prague is a very touristy place these days and they meet at the same café? At least everyone is on the same page with the whole Princess Gina stuff.

Doc seemed more upset with Stefano than with her darling John being possibly dead. Kinda gross for Stevano to move on in to comfort her. And drugged John seeing Marlena in Hope's face. Such romance, such uck.

Did we just listen to HopeGina tell drugged John, "Take me, Juuuan, take me"?  Somebody in the writers room was able to actually write that down without collapsing into hysterical laughter?

Indeed, Juuuan, take her.  Take her anywhere you want - another cellar, a well, a tower, a dumpster, an outhouse, anywhere that has a lock.  And then throw away the key.

Unless that water was laced with viagra - and lots of it - and HopeGina has some sort of mattress that will shield her bony shoulders from crunching into bits when Juuuuan "takes" her, both of them are going to be begging for some extra strength Advil and a heating pad by the time it takes to achieve that particular goal.  

Good Grief, Show, exactly how much fantasy to expect us to swallow?

I love Kayla, I do, but sometimes I'd like to smack her over the head.  So she has "mixed" feelings about Ben but she so admires how Ciara stands by him, is in awe of her lub for that big lunk of a serial killer.

This from the same woman who barely gave Theresa the time of day and was even worse to Sami, but kissed the ground Abigail lurched over and now, apparently, thinks Ciara is also the best thing since sliced bread.  Or is mentioning sliced bread in reference to Ciara's killer boyfriend in poor taste on my part?

One last thing - so Ciara just CAN'T eat, apparently refuses to EVER eat until she proves that Ben is innocent.  Ain't that romantic?  Especially since it appears her hunger strike just began tonight, at Kayla's, since Ciara doesn't look underfed to me.  Maybe that was just her excuse to avoid whatever it was Kayla was cooking.  

A little serving of humble pie would come in handy for Ciara the next time she IS hungry.

@boes I honestly found a bit of pathos in Kristen's "You're my best friend. You're my ONLY friend." 

Wednesday: Nookie Nookie everywhere.  Baby Mackenzie is adorbs.  SUCH a good baby.  And the actor are very comfortable with her.  Xarah and Mickey.  Sigh.  Happy times while it lasts.  And Xander feels it.  Ericole gets the romantic music montage for reunion sex.  Kudos to Arianna Z for wearing just fancy underwear on the TV screen. Takes courage over 40. (Note: JLo setting that bar petty damn high for age 50).  

I liked Brady and Maggie.  I can see why Victor thinks she wont survive finding out she killed her own grandchild.  She won't IMO.  The only way she stays sober is in jail. 

Thursday:
- I'm seeing more "Hattie" in the Marlena performance now.  And really, Stevano - "Here's a grisly fake picture of your dead husband!' THAT's gonna help?
- John & Hope/Gina/thinks-it's-Doc -- you know, Deidra Hall looks awesome for 72.  But no way she does the deed on a warehouse floor.  
- I'm happier with Ciara's new idea (go after Evan --- the baby Daddy).

Finding the baby daddy should have been a priority after Jordan was killed. Wouldn’t he be curious or want custody?

At least Justin listened to both Ciara and Ben. The conviction was too tidy. Hope and Rafe and possibly Eli should also have reached that conclusion.

I got out of work early, so decided to check out he last 10 minutes of the show even though I haven't seen it since some time before the time jump.  Anyway, is it wrong that I was laughing hysterically during the John/Gina scenes/  They were ridiculously overly dramatic. And then when Marlena burst in?  

Then I have a question.  Why doesn't Steve have a patch?  Did his eye get fixed when they gave him Stefano's brain, or did that get fixed earlier and I missed it?  And, boy, does Stefano/Steve have some nerve getting mad that someone is not who they appear to be. Talk about a hypocrite.

And, then I felt like Rafe was like, oh, Steve and Hope are Stefano and Gina.  Ok.  That makes sense.  But, I guess in Salem it does.  I apparently haven't been missing much by not watching.  At least not anything good.

His eye got fixed, he's wearing a patch as part of pretending he's Steve.

Are the Ozarks some sort of mystical hiding place where a person can disappear and never be seen again? Asking for a friend.

Is Hope left handed, or is it just Princess Gina who's left handed?

Kristian Alfonso is left-handed, according to the internet, so I imagine Hope is also.

Good Grief!  I just could NOT watch the Gina & John scenes...talk about ridiculous(even for a soap that has had a lot of crazy storylines).  That was just pathetic...am I supposed to think that was 'romantic"?!  And Marlena/Hattie kissing Stevano made me laugh...again, just ridiculous.   Ugh....

Is this HoGina/Stevano thing someone's dream?  Because it's just gotten totally ridiculous. And not even in an entertaining way.  Gina and Stevano can't keep track of their accents, and they really thought that John and Marlena were going to forget their soul-mates 2 seconds after learning they'd died.  So stupid.   At least, I think, it's almost over.  

Haha, BuckeyeLou, I was typing pretty much the same as you, as you posted.

Everything about John/Gina and Stefano/Hattie was so fucking ridiculous but I'd still rather watch it than anything having to do with Eric/Nicole, Xander/Sarah, and Brady/Kristen. Fucking hell those three couples have made me start thinking maybe Chad/Abby aren't that bad!

I can't with Will being all, 'You deserve to be free,' and hugging Ben. They have got to be kidding me with that shit lol.

He didn't try to kill him.  He did  kill him. Will was dead for days (or at least hours) before mad scientist Rolf brought him back.

I know the Will/Ben friendship is ridiculous, considering Ben tried to kill Will, however, it's not being acted like a joke. Ben really is on death row. His father really is trying to save his life. And, Will, for whatever reason has bonded with Ben and forgiven him.  Even Will being torn about letting everyone know Maggie is the real driver of the car that caused the accident, is a less of a joke than the entire Stevano/HoGina mess, which I think is even harder to take seriously considering all the characters involved are in their 50s and 60s.

Ron or Corday probably watch the show Ozark with Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, which had that premise and maybe they wanted to use that reference. 

Which Gina wound her arm like a pitcher then whirled and held up the dagger 🗡 like Harry Potter holding his wand aloft LOLz. 

Show wants us to believe John has that D where women are crazed and still obsessing over sex they had decades ago. Today Gina, recently Diana, and before that Kristen. 

Also both Stefano and Gina’s lines “Hey your spouse died yesterday...let’s bang. I mean, they’d want you to be happy. Life goes on.” 

Really bad optics having Ben and Will bff and the child rapist and violent homophobe drug dealer associated in a position to help Ben/play hero. In 2020 I don’t think we need characters like Clyde front burner at all, especially as helpers or people being tolerated by the shows “heroes.” 

I do think, actually the actors who play Ben and Will have some chemistry, this just comes back to how damn short sighted and capricious the writing was and is. They wrote the character & actor into a corner so casually without think of his potential or wanting to keep him... now show has done 157 gymnastics to negate or poo poo tons of shit. To a lesser extent Xander’s had that same climb but it’s been less heavy handed and  egregious. 

Kate looked pretty.

The HoGina and John and Marlena and Stevano romance is ridiculous. People just don't normally hook up with folks the day their soulmate dies. The big plan was doomed. The accents are also doing me in. HoGina has a knife now? At least Marlena came to the rescue. I assume that Hattie or Kate filled in some blanks for her.

Awww, Hattie. Still in love with Roman and not the rich and misguided Stevano. The whole kissing scene was really awkward and kinda funny to watch.

Who lugged that big painting to Kristen's hotel room? You would need both Chad and Abigail to carry it. Nice lie, Kristen, sort of, saying that Stefano didn't look like himself.

Do the Ozarks have Bigfoot? It's not that easy to escape from prison and disappear, Ben. He is lucky that people do care for him, but this speeded up death row execution just doesn't happen.

This.  Yep, my spouse just died - let's have sex!  They couldn't even wait a day before putting the moves on them.  At least Gina was smart(?) enough to figure out it probably wouldn't happen without drugs.  I get we're supposed to think that it's perfectly appropriate for senior citizens to be sexually active, but do they REALLY have to have them acting like oversexed teenagers?

And I'm making the assumption that Prague is a fairly large city.  Yet, Kate just happens to go to the exact café Rafe is at the exact time he's there?  

At least we can hope that since the truth about Hope and Steve is finally out that this means this whole stupidity will end soon.

Yep I agree with all this I mean yeah we should be glad the show is on the air but is it going to get better or at least slightly more respectable? Nope.

After the 18th I think I need to take a break from this show. I'll probably still post here because the boards are more interesting than the actual show(not that it takes much) but really at this point its not even interesting to make fun of the show(which was half the fun these days)

Before I saw this post (and before Friday's reveal), there was one scene where I thought it was Hattie instead of Marlena. I have to give Deidre Hall props for letting Hattie peak through like that. Of course, I don't remember the scene now...

A lot of people knew about Hattie pretending to be Marlena because they watch the show with closed captioning and it even says Hattie as Marlena. I bet the show wasn't too happy with that little detail being leaked - not that many of us hadn't figured it out anyway.

I hope that once Marlena gets home safely, Hattie will decide that Salem is too dangerous and leave.

The John/Gina scenes are creepy as hell (the other two aren't much better). And not in a fun, entertaining way. More in a cringeworthy, OMG, I have so much second hand embarrassment for these people kind of way. Also, they have produced some of the worst "acting" this show has ever seen, and that's saying a lot. 

Kayla looks like she cut off a string mop and plopped it on her head.

Ciara needs to burn those pants she's been wearing.

I'd be more concerned with Ben's predicament if Illinois actually had the death penalty. And if I liked the character more. Also, they must all be housed in a no security, no tech prison if they can cut a few holes in the fence and be off on their merry way.

Thank goodness for Xander, Sarah, and baby makes three. At least until that all blows to hell.

Sarah called Xander to tell him she was in labor and wanted him there. Xander arrived and saw Maggie’s car off the road and she was quite drunk

 

 

Xander got Maggie awake long enough to ask where Sarah was and Maggie told him Adrienne was driving Sarah to the hospital. Xander called Victor, who "took care of the Maggie" situation. Xander found Adrienne and Sarah. Will was already there, and thought he'd caused them to go off the road.

Adrienne was initially conscious, but got out of the car and collapsed. JJ and the paramedics showed up and took Adrienne to the hospital. Xander delivered Sarah's baby girl. 

Adrienne died, obviously. Will confessed that he caused the accident. Xander and Victor overheard his confession and let him take the blame.

Kristen went into labour the same night. Also had a baby girl.  

Once the babies were in the nursery, Victor & Xander went to check on Sarah's baby, just as teh doctor was tried to revive her.  Doctor said it was from the accident, and Sarah;s baby died.

Next thing Xander brings "a baby" back to Sarah, who briefly comments that the baby looks different. 

Meanwhile, Hayley comes into Kristen's room and wonders why the doctoir isn't there. Kristens asks about her baby. Hayley stalls. Then leaves to find doctor. Kristen persists, and Haley admits that Kristen and Brady's baby died.  Kristen accidentally pushed Haley and Hayley falls down the stairs and dies.

Lots of scenes follow of Justin/Sonny mourning Adrienne.

Now Sarah's baby is sick and needs a bone marrow transplant. Sarah and Eric, of course, don't match. Xander is running around trying to get everyone to give blood, including Brady and Kristen, who both agree to be tested.

Ben's last appeal failed and his execution date is in 3 weeks. His father convinced him to try to escapes.  The guard yesterday, discovered Ben's bed empty and raised the alarm.

Will presented Sonny with divorce papers, which Sonny signed. Will did as well, but didn't file them, as Ciara told him he was innocent. She had pressed Victor to confess to killing Jordan, and Victor told her all about Maggie's involvement.  

Will is torn and doesn't want Maggie to have to deal with the guilt of killing someone, so hasn't moved to arrange his own release yet.

Sonny as moved on with Evan, the Manny Rafe hired for David. Rafe is pursuing custody of David, so a background check was done on Evan, which came back with "questions". Evan found the letter, read it and destroyed it.

Sarah and Eric almost slept together, but didn't. She then told Xander she loved him. 

Eric forgave Nicole.  Brady forgave Kristen.  Xander/Sarah slept together. Not sure about Eric/Nicole.  Brady/Kristen are going to take it slow.

Rafe called Shawn about Hope's weird behavour. Shawn figured out she was Gina, Rafe ad Roman went to Prague to find Marlena John., Gina & Stevano told John and Marlena that their soul mate was dead. Both branwashee's then tried to romance their "love". Neither was successful,  Stevano did get kissed by Hattie who was pretending to be Marlena, but realized she (Hattie) loves Roman, so couldn't be with Stevano, who admitted he was Stefano.

Jack/Jennifer haven't been on much, if at all.

Oh... Gabi/Eli are getting married Feb 14, so next week.

That's probably not everything, but hopefully helps some. Any questions, just ask.

From what I understand, they never tell the actors what their story will be. It's crazy, I know! Eileen Davidson said when she made her big return in 2012, she didn't know if she'd be playing Kristen or Susan or what....isn't that nuts? You get a big deal actress to return and she doesn't even deserve a heads-up about what she's returning for?

Same deal with SN. He said in a recent SOD interview, he was offered a contract, signed and then found out he'd be trying to play Stefano.

Im confuseD with this whole baby switch thing . Why would Victor take baby Rachel from his own grandson and pretty much hand Baby Rachel to Sarah ? What also makes this bizarre is the fact that Rachel /MacKenzie will end up knoWing Eric to be her dad.

Doesnt Victor hate Eric for Killing his beloved Daniel ? Doesn't Xander also hate Eric over Serena and Nicole ? 

I just do not get it.

Why didnt thEy just do the baby switch with a random baby Who was born on the same day as Mackenzie ? 

 

It would have been better if it was Eric and Nicole pregnant instead of Brady and Kristen. 

Afterall both Victor and Xander have a an axe to grind when it cOmes to Eric and Nicole .

Yep.  Summer showed up looking remarkably for a woman who claims she's dying of cirrhosis and it's all Maggie's fault because......genetics?  She seemed annoyed that Sarah was ruining her good time by having to deliver the baby, so Adrienned took Sarah to the hospital while Maggie stayed behind to try and figure out what the hell Summer wanted.  Summer pulled out a bottle of partially empty vodka or gin, some clear liquour and challenged her mother to join her in a drink, maybe even poured her a glass.  If anything else was shown onscreen between Maggie and Summer, I don't remember it.  The next I remember seeing Maggie was when Xander found her dead drunk in her car at the side of the road, apparently passed out after running Sarah and Adrienne off the road.

@Rafael, the reason Vic wanted the baby switch to give Sarah the live baby was because of Maggie. He figured she never would have been able to handle it if she knew that not only did she kill Adrienne, but she also caused the death of her own granddaughter. Now, we know that all is not what it seems, but Vic's primary and actually, only, reason was to protect Maggie. And, it didn't hurt that it would be a way to break up Kristen and Brady, but that was just a bonus.

I don’t think Victor’s affection for Daniel, who died a long time ago and was unrelated, would outweigh protecting his wife from prison and knowing she killed and innocent woman and her grandchild. Also...Maggie IS Daniel’s mother. So I’m not sure why long gone character is being brought up as a reason why Vic wouldn’t have done the accident lie and switch? 

Xander has only cared about or noticed Sarah, Maggie, and Victor for almost 2 years now.

As I was watching Friday's show stupidity, I just had to wonder how desperate was Stephen Nichols for a job that he lowered himself to come back for the crap they have him doing.  

He probably would've been better served material wise if he returned as Stefan on GH especially with Nik's return, Alexis, Spencer and of course Laura. 

Or even Y&R as Tucker helping Devon deal with Neil's death and Chancellor.

 

However Steve Johnson is his signature role and at least will have more of a place than on GH/Y&R

Wasnt the hold up for his return to Days over contract dispute? I don’t think @CanaryFan98 SN or Eileen Davidson as some have posted here have just their choice of which soap and when to return at their whimsy. Besides what’s going on w the stories and backstage politics or if the respective current HWs like them, the actors are Union employees and not cheap. And soaps, all of them, are broke. 

Eileen Davidson and SN make over a million dollars a year on their Union Scale. That means Days likely is shelling out $83,000 a month for this Stevano fuckshit 👌🏼

The actors' ages don't bother me.  It's just completely ridiculous and sci-fi.

The actors' ages don't bother me; the characters' immaturity, however, bothers me a lot. There's a line between hokey and empty-headed.

@Rafael, the reason Vic wanted the baby switch to give Sarah the live baby was because of Maggie. He figured she never would have been able to handle it if she knew that not only did she kill Adrienne, but she also caused the death of her own granddaughter. Now, we know that all is not what it seems, but Vic's primary and actually, only, reason was to protect Maggie. And, it didn't hurt that it would be a way to break up Kristen and Brady, but that was just a bonus.

Oh ,I see . But why not do this babyswitch with another random kid ? Because it is still cRuelty on Victor's part to deny Brady the opportunity to raise and love his daughter. Unless Victor and Xander plan to setup Brady to hook up with Sarah in order to unknowingly have access to Rachel though he still believes the kid is Sarah and Eric's. But then again ,Xander wants Sarah for himself.

 

Lets say Maggie finds out about this switch later on ,wouldnt it devastate her even more ?

I am still catching up on missed episodes on On Demand.

Has it ever been explained how Hattie was talking to Kate in the Brady Pub at the same time as Hope was about to kidnap Marlena, and then suddenly Hattie was playing Marlena  with Stevano at the lair?  I just don't get how that happened.  (I know, I know, that's not the craziest thing that is happening!)

I mean, it is ridiculous to think that Hope dragged Marlena to her car and then to the lair.  But she could have henchman.  But how did Hattie conspire to replace Marlena in the span of about two seconds???

All the women on Days are incredible strong.   Carrying pregnant  women upstairs , carrying a grown   women across town.  I want to know their diet and workout.
