Days of Our Lives Daily Recap: Nicole Gets a Restraining Order Against Rafe
When Mary leaves, EJ and Brady play the who’s more macho game and throw around insults and threats. They argue about both Sydney and Nicole. Brady accidentally lets it slip that he can’t believe that Nicole risked everything to be with EJ, but Brady leaves before he can say anymore. EJ’s left wondering what he meant by Nicole risking everything.
Daniel/Nathan/Melanie/Justin: Daniel meets up with Melanie and Nathan in Maggie’s kitchen. Nathan informs Daniel that they didn’t find any poison residue on the gloves Daniel had found. Dr. Dan begins to think it’s time to start facing facts – he’s going to jail.
Daniel tells Nathan that Chloe is going to need another dose of the medicine and since he can’t get anywhere near her, Nathan will have to do it. Nathan says he can’t, so Melanie steps forward and tells Daniel she’ll do it. Nathan argues that Melanie can’t do it; she’s only a nursing student. After some arguing, he agrees to give Chloe the injection and Melanie insists on helping him.
Meanwhile, Justin calls and tells Daniel to meet at the courthouse because the DA wants to meet with them. At the courthouse, the DA offers Daniel a deal, but Dr. Dan’s not interested. The DA warns him to consider what might happen if Chloe doesn’t wake up and then leaves. Daniel wonders if the DA has thought about what might happen if Chloe wakes up.
At the hospital, Melanie plays look out at Chloe’s door, while Nathan heads in Chloe’s room and gets ready to give her the injection.
Stefano and Kate: Stefano runs into Kate at the pub. Kate tells him to go away and that she wants nothing to do with him because he tried to kill Philip. Stefano suggests they should put that all behind them but Kate isn’t interested. Stefano asks her if she had anything to with Chloe’s condition, which Kate denies. She continues to try to get him to leave but he sticks around for a while anyway trying to convince her to take his help. Before he leaves he reminds her that she shouldn’t try push away friends.
Stefano and EJ: EJ heads into the DiMera mansion. Stefano informs him that his lab results are back in, and that his diabetes is back under control. He suggests that since the news is so good, that now would be a good time for EJ to take Nicole on that extended honeymoon to Paris. EJ tells Stefano that he has decided that he isn’t going.
Stefano asks EJ if there is trouble in paradise, but EJ claims that he can’t get away from work. Stefano reminds EJ that he works for him. EJ asks if Stefano is going to force him to go. Stefano says he can, and that he just might do that. EJ folds his arms and looks at him suspiciously, demanding to know what is going on.
EJ reminds Stefano that the only reason he and Nicole have stayed living in the mansion with Sydney, was because Stefano promised to stop interfering in his life. Stefano tells him to go ahead and crush Nicole’s dreams and stay home if he wants, but he does wonder if EJ has told Nicole about his decision yet.
On the Next Days of Our Lives:
At the convent, Sami tells Sister Claire, “Guess you're right, though. It's better if we stay away from each other right now.”
At the pub, Rafe snaps at Arianna, “Well, if you're not gonna help me, then I'll have to find out on my own what he knows.”
At the DiMera mansion, EJ shouts at Nicole, “What is it that this Rafe guy has on you?”
Just a Few Thoughts: Is it just me or does this baby switch story feel like it’s been stuck in neutral forever? Maybe I would be a lot more interested in this story if Sami or EJ was figuring this out instead of Rafe. It is their child after all. Hopefully, Sami will start to clue in soon as she tries to figure out what’s going on with Rafe.
Oh, and this Dr. Dan story just gets dumber by the minute. I feel bad for everyone involved in this mess. The only thing good to come out of it is that Kate’s back to being a scheming bitch and Justin’s back in town. Honestly, that can only carry a story so far for me.
Not to mention, my boss keeps whining that Chloe’s still in a coma, so if the show could wake her up soon, that would just make my life a whole lot easier – lol!
