What Happened on Days 1\20\2012
Todays key characters:Stefano, Chad, Kate, Sami, Madisen, Bo, Hope, Melanie, and Gabrielle.
Today's episode could have used a little more dramatic tension. Also, it would behoove Days publicity to hang onto juicy Friday reveals. It gives us a good reason to watch! Overall a solid ep. If you didn't see the commercials last week exposing that Sami still works for Madisen, it would be a bigger reveal!
We open the show in the Dimera manse, perhaps later the same day as it was on 2\19. Chad and Stefano wisely chose not to sit on the sofa (they should throw that thing out once a month for all the sex that happens on it. Once could get VD and perhaps EBOLA from sitting on it!). Stefano wants to fund Chad's newest project the coffee club. Chad ofcourse wants nothing to do with Stefano's money. (Just wait till he finds out his bromanitic partner Will is working for EJ!) Chad wants to make something out of himself on his own and doesn't want those puppet strings that come attached to any Dimera kindness. Stefano seems really rebuffed and hurt by Chads refusal to come to the darkside. Family is Family afterall! Chad (probably remembering that to be a Dimera child is risky at best. A vast majority die very early), is slightly touched by his father's words and leaves on a promising note that maybe Stefano could drop by the coffee shop sometime for a cup. (I am not a big fan of Stefano begging for his son's time and attention. It seems well unseemly. Stefano does not beg he commands. If commands do not work, a mind altering cd or some serum of somesort may be used. But begging? UHG!)
Elsewhere in Salem today, Bo and Hope are still going on about that KEY. Ok I LOVE the idea of having a big mystery surrounding Alice Horton. It is about time that she got her own story albiet posthumously. HOWEVER, MOVE IT ALONG PLEASE! (This is reminding me of a badly concieved story on Another World surrounding Mac Cory's death and a red swan.
This ugly little statue of a red swan was the subject of Another World for MONTHS. I got tired of the story and I am not sure it even had a point. I have forgotten except that eventually it was found out that Mac had a daughter Paulina) Hope wants to toss the Dimera Manse, with or without a warrent. But Bo has a better idea....... In the mean time Madisen comes over and offers Hope a modeling job. Hope says no, she has enough on her plate right now. Maddie, says well keep it in mind ( I have a thought. Since Madisen wants to have an multi generational clietele for her cosmetics, I think it would be great to focus on an entire family of women as the models. Julie, Hope, Jen, and Abigail could all do group shots of a family of beautiful women who use Madworld cosmetics. I mean how many 68 year olds do you know who look as good as Julie! Hope is still stunning, Jen is a natural beauty and Abigail is nearly as beautiful as her cousin Hope. Just a thought!)
At Countess W, Kate and Sami are looking over the test shots of Chad and Gabi. They are beautiful together and will be perfect as the new faces of Countess W. Quick use all your witchly powers to make this happen says Kate to Sami! Me? says Sami. I don't know if Gabi will go for it she loves her brother too much. You know since your husband duplicated and kidnapped her bro, maybe she wouldn't work for you! Pshaw, says Kate. ALLEGEDLY did those things. Just wave that hot bod of Chad's under her nose and she will forget all the rest.
Later we find Madisen getting some bubbly out and toasting to Kates downfall. Sami is a mole an she is still working for Kate. The fight was a scam that Kate bought hook line and sinker. Kate is moving ahead with a youthful target market, while Madworld is gonna reachout to the average working woman (using the impossibly thin and beautiful Hope?). Sami is happy their schemes worked and that she is gonna bring down the blackwidow herself. Sami and Madisen decide it is safe to tell Brady and Rafe about it. (Superhero Rafe will have a fit about all the underhanded goings on!).
Kate corners Gab at Intensity and tells her to get ahold of Chad. She wants to talk about the photo shoot. Chad on his way over runs into Melanie who is upset about her father. He is upset about his father. Melanie is experiencing a huge seperation anxiety issue over her father leaving her like so many have before. Chad is sad that he can't have a normal non monsterous father. They hug but Mel still runs off unable to be with Chad as much as she wants it.
Finally Bo comes up with the idea of tricking Stefano into coming to the bank with his key. He is the other KEYholder that opens A Grayson's lock box. A Grayson ofcourse is Alice Horton's maiden name. He has someone calling him from the bank and claiming there is a problem with the box. When he heads there he is stopped by frick and frack ( I mean Bo and Hope). Their plan is working. Now to find out what is in that damned box!.Bo and Hope push your
