Friday January 31
Well all I have to say is I'm thankful that there was no pawing today...LOL.
The fact that Cassie was there when Shawn talked to his grandfather upset me a lot...but the fact that she never touched him made me feel better.
Shawn talks about his great-grandfather and how he once came to him when he was sick. He asks him what to do...he feels a breeze which Cassie doesn't
feel....she asks if he got his answer..he says yes..but not the one I hoped for..I know what I have to do..she says she'll help him..he tells her he has
to do it alone. And then looks up and says thank-you. He leaves and Cassie follows (like a puppy dog).
Belle and Rex talking...Belle's upset that Shawn told him they broke up...she says I told him I'd wait..she gets a letter. It's fate.
Shawn and Cassie are coming up the stairs Belle sees him and calls him in...Cassie as well and tells them (although she's looking at Shawn the whole time)that last spring before her and Shawn got back together...she applied for a design program in Paris and was put on the waiting list...she got in and is leaving in 2 weeks for 8 weeks...the whole time she's watching Shawn...he just looks at her (no real reaction) I guess we'll get than the next time they're on.
I love Nicole as a drunk...and she got Sami. Poor Sami no matter what she does it turns out wrong.
Jen passes out in Hope's front yard...she tells Hope she's pregnant with Colin's baby..Hope confesses to killing Colin.
Bo finds a towel covered in blood planted by Larry.
Jack and Alice talk about his and Jen's love.
Ok...I made it through the Cassie scenes today. KS is excellent again today...and I loved Shawn going to visit Tom's grave...although Cassie being there spoiled it for me.
I’m steamed! I’m sorry, but why is Shawn telling Cassie everything he should be telling Belle. This makes me so angry – grrrr! Instead of lashing out at her for following him, he just tells her about what a special man Tom Horton was. How him and his mom would look up at the stars and know that Addie and Tom were watching over them. He feels a breeze – Cassie doesn’t. He knows that Grandpa Tom is there and he tells him he killed a man and asks what he should do. He tells Cassie that he got an answer – he has to do this on his own. He says he knows what he has to do – he was scared, but he isn’t any longer.
Rex and Belle talk. She wants him to be independent like him. He says what looks like independent is really being lonely. He wants someone to share with. He makes a slight move towards her – but, praise the lord, Belle actually knows what he wants and backs up and tells him he’ll find someone. Rex gets the hint. At least Belle recognizes that she is too co-dependent on Shawn – now if only Shawn could recognize the fact that he needs her and develop some co-dependency of his own. But wait, that’s coming up, isn’t it – except he’s going to become dependent on drugs. Penny delivers a letter.
Belle tells Rex that he doesn’t have to look out for her like Shawn asked him to. He kind of let it slip – Belle is shocked and hurt that Shawn told Rex they had broken up even after she told him she wouldn’t break up with him. Cassie and Shawn come back into the room. She says she applied at a design school before her and Shawn got back together (she really stumbled over that – she’s in a lot of pain) and she was put on a wait list. They have an opening and she’s accepting it. She leaves for Paris in two weeks and she’s going to be gone two months. Shawn just stares at her.
Bo calls Jen, who is talking to Jack. He wants her to come over. He goes to question Brandon, which Sami doesn’t like. Brandon asks Bo if he is trying to get him to incriminate his sister. When Jen goes to Bo’s, Jack goes to the Cheating Heart trying to get something on Nicole. Of course Sami goes there and when Nicole goes to the ladies’ room, Sami is all over Jack. He’s says she’s going to find out you’re trying to pin the murder on her if you’re still sitting here when she comes back – and bang, there she is. They both high-tail it over to Brandon’s, Nicole gets there first, tells Brandon that Sami is trying to frame her for Colin’s murder. Brandon gets Sami to admit that’s true.
Larry plants the towel in the dumpster at Bope’s and hears Jen coming. Hope goes to take the garbage out and sees Jen passed out. They go in the house. Jen tells Hope she’s pregnant with Colin’s baby and he’s always going to be with her. Hope says no, put him out of your life. Jen says how, Hope tells her she killed him. Bo comes home and hears Larry (although he doesn’t know its Larry). He draws his gun and notices the blood-stained towel.
There was a really cute scene between Jack and Alice. He’s ranting about how he hated Colin for what he did to Jen, etc. He calls Colin a jerk and Alice turns around and tells him he’s the one that’s being a jerk. You go, Alice.
Preview: Brandon and Sami, John and Marlena, Lexie and Tony. Lexie says father’s really gone this time and he’s not coming back, is he? The look in Tony’s eyes – all I can, scary!
Monday Feb. 3
Well what can I say...it was a little bit of a filler show.
John/Marlena - talking about going to the island..Marlena doesn't want to leave the 'children'. John thinks that Marlena is scared to learn the truth and that she wants them to be hers.
Bo/Hope/Jennifer...Bo brings the bloody towel in the house and bags it...and puts it in a drawer (I must have missed something..pretty silly place to put
it)he hears Hope telling Jen about thinking she killed Colin. Jen goes to get the famouse 'Salem tea' and finds the towel...Bo comes in and asks her
not to say anything..Hope didn't do it...she asks if he's going to tell Abe/Roman..he says no...he'll take care of it. Jenn leaves and Hope says she's much calmer...doesn't think she needs the pills..Bo wants to have the prescription filled anyway...(an excuse to phone John and find out where to get the towel tested) Hope looks at a flyer for self-defense.
Nicole/Jack...Nicole plays an excellent drunk (I loved her scenes today)telling Jack don't you watch L&O it's the person you 'least expect'. She says it's not Brandon or her. Jen comes home and Nicole leaves...Alice hugs Jen (she knows something's wrong)
Brandon/Sami....Sami did it again. Told Brandon it was either her or Nicole...will she never learn.
Larry...he's gone on to Plan B...writing out the phony prescription...I really love AM and how he's playing this out.
Tony/Rolf....he asks Rolf if the twins were programmed for something (can't remember)or 'murder' A little foreshadowing perhaps (one can only hope)
Now the previews...didn't hear what SDB said I was too busy watching his face/eyes...(this show is going to be a tearjerker)Cassie yelling to John about hating Marlena...Rex yelling at Marlena about hurting her (I'm sure he meant Cassie)
Anyway not too bad a show...but it was a bit of a filler (whenever I say that there's always a clue about something...LOL)
IMO, this is just a set-up show for Feb. sweeps.
John/Marlena: They are talking about why she feels she can’t leave the twins right now to go to the island. John confronts her and says that she wants to be their mother and she’s afraid they might find out that’s she’s not. She wants to know what happens if it turns out that she is their mother and that either Tony or Stefano (she barely can get his name out) is the father. Would he accept the twins? He says that Tony has an agenda – she tells John that she doesn’t care what Tony feels, says, does or is planning, if they are the twin’s parents because he is her husband. She is taking the ‘journey’ with him. He tells her he feels that the twins are Stefano’s pawns and capable of anything – he doesn’t think she’s say. She asks him if he expects her to turn her back on the ‘children.’ She says she can’t go away right now not just because of the twins, but because of Hope’s problems and Belle’s struggle with Shawn.
Hope/Bo/Jen: Bo puts the towel in a baggie and stuffs it in a kitchen drawer. He overhears Hope confessing to Jen. He goes in and tells her that he knows she didn’t kill anyone, she’s just not capable of it. He says Victor’s driver drove her straight home – if she killed Colin, where’s the gun. She says I could have hid before I got into the car. He says the entire estate was searched and no gun was found (interesting….where is that gun???). She panics that she might have hid it in the house and Zach could find it. He says he searched the entire house when she first told him that she thought she might have shot him. No gun. Jen goes to make tea, Bo tries to stop her but Hope delays him long enough for Jen to find the towel. She agrees not to tell Hope about it. She leaves. Hope tells Bo that she didn’t get the prescription filled because she doesn’t think she needs it. She feels good – ripped the victim sign off from around her neck. Bo says, I’ll go and get it filled just in case. He goes outside and calls John – he needs the name of a technician and lab that will do a DNA test within 24 hours on the QT. He tells John he can’t tell him what it’s about.
Lexie/Tony/Rolf: Lexie talking, wondering why Stefano would keep Tony’s own children away from him. Lots of flashbacks about the baby switch and kidnapping. She says she knows that Tony would never lie to her so she asks to confirm that Stefano is really dead. Hmm, I’m not sure, but I think Tony danced around the question and never really answered it. She goes to get him take-out. Rolf comes in. Tony wants to know what other secrets he’s keeping from him seeing as he didn’t tell him that he was the twins’ father. Rolf said that Stefano told him that they were not Stefano offspring. (I think Rolfie’s right). Tony wants to know who their Mother is, Rolf doesn’t know. Tony says the twins are to lead a normal life and if anyone tries to get them to do anything ‘nefarious’ there would be consequences. Lexie comes back, Tony asks her to poke a pin into the bottom of his foot. She does, he jumps, they both laugh as he says that hurt like hell.
Brandon/Sami: Sami admits she’s trying to frame Nicole to protect him. He tells her he didn’t do it. She’s so happy. He’s still angry with her. Sami wont’ let it go when she realizes he would go to prison to protect Nicole. She tells him to choose between Nicole and her. He gets very angry and throws her out. Well, I guess she got her answer. My advice, just keep walking and never look back, he’s soooo not worth it.
Jack/Nicole: Alice and Jack are talking, she tells him that when she first seen him and Jen together, that the two of them reminded her of herself and Tom. Nicole comes in drunk as a skunk ranting at Jack and threatening to sue the paper and Jen. Jack is fairly astute and pretty well tells Nicole that she was sleeping with Colin and he was blackmailing her. She says she didn’t do it, doesn’t he watch Law and Order – it’s never the most obvious person that’s the killer. Jack believes that Nicole didn’t kill Colin, and he agrees that Sami is desperate to get something on Nicole. She says it’s because she hates me, he says no she’s protecting someone. Nicole looks really scared when she realizes that Jack is referring to Brandon. She says he couldn’t have, he asks her if she can be sure. She’s outside Brandon’s place when he kicks Sami out. Jen tells Jack to drop the story – it’s not worth it. He wants to know what she’s not telling him.
Larry: Got to love him, stole books on PTSD and a prescription pad from Marlena!
Preview: Shawn asking Belle if she’s really going to go, her asking him if there’s any reason to stay – oy – the look again…Cassie yelling at John that she hates Marlena and she will never forgive her and Rex yelling at Marlena saying have you any idea of what you’ve done to her.
All in all, it’s looking more and more that the ‘huge’ spoiler that came out yesterday could be right on the mark.
Wednesday Feb. 5
This is such an emotional show for Shelle fans. It’s hard to even talk about other things that happened, but I’ll try.
John/Marlena/Ressie: John tells Marlena he’s going to the island. She tells him she called the twins in to tell them she can’t be their therapist any longer – she’s too emotionally involved. Ressie are very cool to John when they first get there. He leaves, Marlena tries to explain but Cassie jumps all over her. She says we nothing but an experiment to you. Rex tries to get to let Marlena finish saying what she wants to say – but she tells Marlena she hates her and never wants to see her again. Rex jumps all over Marlena for hurting her and all though he won’t it admit it to her, he’s obviously hurt. Cassie runs into John and tells him she’s all DiMera. She rants at John saying he always hated them. He tells her that he’s protecting his family. She says because he’s connected to Tony, maybe they should protect themselves from him. She says Marlena and Belle are very hurtful people (what did Belle do to her???) – she tells him she hates them, especially Marlena. They go back to the dorm – she’s listening at the door and catches Shawn saying the word ‘good-bye’ but she missed the entire context of that – she tells Rex that it’s sign. Its fate – her and Shawn are meant to be together. Shawn’s hers now. She’ll finally have someone that loves her and only her. Major delusions she’s suffering from – it’s not going to be pretty or safe when reality hits her between the eyes. Marlena tells John she’s coming to the island with him.
Crancy: Cute scenes – trying to set up the crib. She wants to call the hospital and find out what happened that her results were read wrong because she and Craig were cheated out of all those years with Chloe. He gets her to promise to wait until after the baby is born. He goes into the kitchen, she phones her dad and tells him to come there – she needs to see him. She lies to Craig about who she was talking with.
Broe: They talk about all the spring things she likes to do so they can get them done before she has to go into isolation to get ready for her transplant. Major setup for the flashback scenes after she dies – IMO. They make love.
Shelle: I don’t even know where to start, except, for as down as I was over this breakup – after watching today’s show – I’m more sure in their love then ever before. He wants to know what this trip is all about. She tells him that she’s applied to take a design course in Paris. He says he didn’t know she was interested in design. She snaps at him that there are a lot of things he hasn’t been noticing about her lately. He asks her if she’s really going to go. She says do I have a reason to stay.
I’m sorry, but so much went on between them today that’s it’s hard to assimilate it all. So much said and unsaid between them. She asks him if she should go. He tells her he doesn’t have the right to tell what to do. She asks if he realized that Cassie was the woman of his dreams because he’s going around telling everyone that they broke up and when he came into the room, she was draped all over him. He vehemently denies that. He has absolutely nil romantic interest in Cassie, that is very apparent in this scene. She doesn’t understand why he’s doing this and that is what makes it so hard for her. He tells her he loves her, she says she loves him to but this is so hard for her.
He tries to tell her … she says I don’t want to here about you protecting me. He says she should go, start packing, because all he does is make her unhappy. She tells him that isn’t what she wants – he knows what she wants. She points out all the candles in the room and asks him why he didn’t want to be with her that night. She says she knows that something happened the night of Colin’s murder because that is when he started pulling away from her. She says don’t say it was because of your parent’s problems. He tells her that he knows what she wanted and he’s sorry. He starts talking about how every time he looks at her he remembers the Last Blast Dance, how she looked, how she felt in his arms, how long it took him to work up the courage to kiss her for the first time.
She walks up to him and puts her arms around his neck and starts running her fingers through his hair. He can’t help himself - he wraps his arms around her and leans his forehead to hers. She pleads with him not to let her go and then she raises her lips for a kiss. THUD ALERT: Prepare yourself, before he kisses her, it sounds like he swallows a sob – and then the kiss. They have shared many kisses but NEVER one this intense. She asks him to make love to her. He says he can’t.
She again asks him to tell her. She says she thought that things would be different when they got back together. She thought this time was going to be forever. He says that’s all he wants, but it just can’t be. He says he loves her. She says without trust there is no love. He says he doesn’t blame her for not trusting him – she says, no, it’s you who doesn’t trust me because you won’t tell me what’s going on with you. He flashes back to Cassie saying Belle could end up in jail. He tells her that soon she’ll understand why he is doing this. She wonders how she could have been so wrong about them. She says that she’s beginning to believe that she never knew him at all. They wonder how to say goodbye. She says she’ll be back. He says it won’t be the same and she says it already isn’t the same.
This is a very powerful Belle and Shawn episode. Kudos to JC and KS who continue to amaze me each and every day. This one is a keeper!
Preview: Brandon and Sami and Roman, Bo looking for Hope, she’s in the basement and she sees Larry.
Monday Feb 10
Ok. It's official now. I hate Cassie. I can't stand watching her on my
screen. She totally devastates Belle today and she knew exactly what she was
doing. Belle wants honesty - Cassie gives her partial honesty. Belle says
Cassie should give Shawn space to deal with his problems. She tells Belle
she's not the one deserting him - she's going to be there for him to talk
to. Belle starts in on her 'crush' on Shawn. She tells Belle, it's not a
crush anymore. She tells Belle that Shawn is her best friend - what happened
to 'he's my destiny.' She makes sure she lets Belle know that Shawn told her
what is bothering her. Belle is crushed and tells Cassie she wants to be
alone. Rex comes in looking for Cassie. Belle is crying, holding a picture
of Shawn. She says she's somewhere with Shawn. She says he can't tell me but
he tells Cassie his problems. She says he won't have to worry about
protecting me anymore because I'll be thousands of miles away. Rex hugs her.
Cassie goes outside the room and smirks and says, you shouldn't ask for
honesty - you might not like what you hear. She phones Shawn and Shawn is
just leaving the police station - he freaks and says he has to tell someone
what he did. She tells him he needs to talk to her and tells him to pick her
up at the dorm and I can't believe that he does exactly that. Geez, Shawn.
Shawn is looking at the suspect board when Bo puts his hand on his shoulder
and Shawn jumps. He's clearly spooked. He wants to know why Bo wanted to see
him. He asks him about the dish towel. Shawn doesn't have a clue what he's
talking about. He wants to know what's really going on. Bo says Hope is
forgetting things, but trying to get better. Shawn tells him to take himself
off the case and get's really belligerent with Bo when he says, if he wants
to collect a paycheck - he has to show up to work. He tells Shawn that
there's a murderer walking around free and he won't rest until he puts him
behind bars for life. He comes behind Shawn again and Shawn freaks out. Bo
asks him what's up. He asks about Belle. He says he doesn't see much of her
or talk to her much because he's busy at school. Bo looks at him very
strangely when he leaves.
Hope is out jogging. Goes into the kitchen to make herself something to eat
before she takes a pill. Larry comes into the living room and switches the
pills. She comes back in and notices that there seems to be more pills in
the bottle than she remembers. She sees the door open, goes to it and Larry
is there. He taunts her when she says he's not alive, he's not really there.
He says you must want me here, if you keep seeing me. He tells her the only
way to get rid of him is to confess to Colin's murder. She lunges for him
and he takes off running. She goes to take a pill, decides she needs to get
Larry out of her mind without any help. Then she realizes - this time it was
different - he just didn't disappear, he ran away. She goes to the police
station and tells Bo this. How he was so much more real this time. Bo begins
to wonder if Larry is still alive.
Cassie and Shawn outside Shawn's house. God, he's taking her with him to see
his mother - I just don't like this at all. I keep hearing Sami's words of
warning to Belle about Shawn and Cassie ending up in bed together. Ugh - I
swear, if that happen's - I'll, I'll....be sick, for starters. I won't go
into what I would do next. Hope's not home. Cassie asks what's wrong. He
says his mother is all stressed out over Colin's murder. He says, what's she
going to do when she finds out her son is a murderer. He kicks the trash bin
over and the pills Hope had thrown out, roll out. Cassie asks what they are,
Shawn says they're his mom's tranquilizers. She tells him they are what he
Tony/Craig/Rex/specialist: Tony wants out of the hospital. Craig doesn't
want to release him. Tony tries to talk to Rex about being his family. Rex
says, the DiMera's, the same family that turned us into freaks. Rex tells
Tony he's worried about Cassie. Tony gets the specialist to get him
released. Rolf calls and tells Tony that John and Marlena are at the
compound. He says right on schedule - almost too predictable.
John/Marlena; Not much - they talk - she has flashbacks and then a memory of
Kate/Roman: They spent the night locked in John's office. He tells her when
he first starting seeing her, he was investigating her connection to the
DiMera's. But that all changed and he really wants to be with her. She
doesn't buy it and tells him to leave her alone. He warns her to not get
sucked in by Tony and let another DiMera ruin her life. So he says he'll
leave if that's what she really wants and she says yes.
Preview: Cassie telling Shawn to take the pills, Jen telling Jack she has
the results of the pregnancy test, Bo talking to someone on the phone saying
you left her alone - cut to Hope in the kitchen and Larry watching her.
As you can see from above Pat pretty well covered all the convos...so I'll just give my point of view...LOL
First let me say that KS looked absolutely beautiful today..her hair was up in a french braid and she had on a gorgeous pant suit. SDB looked as good as always...those tortured eyes.
Shawn is well on the way to losing it...he yells at Bo, jumps when Bo touches him...definately at the end of his rope. When Cassie calls he says he has to tell someone and she wants him to pick her up. Now...I know a lot of you are upset that Shawn did this so easily and I must confess I'm one of them but...I thought about it and my feeling is that he has no one to talk to...Belle is leaving and she's his support. Cassie is just there. He tells her about his mom...but I'm also feeling that he's just talking...the fact that it is Cassie means nothing to him...when he kicks the garbage can she tells him he's got to calm down..(now I think she's starting to get worried that he's going to confess...and in that sense she won't have the control she does now)in the last scene and the preview you can tell he's thinking about it. (BTW..the pills are the ones Larry planted)
Can you say BITCH...the way Cassie was with Belle today..had me wanting to pull out her hair. She was mean and spiteful and loving every minute of it and even then Belle was nice to her...although she did give her the look of death when Cassie said what she felt for Shawn wasn't a crush anymore. Seeing Belle lying on the bed holding the heart shaped box with a picture of Shawn on it had me in tears...and Rex was so sweet (I'm really liking this boy) he's got a head on his shoulders!!!
I think Bo/Hope have found the Salem brain...finally Bo thinks Larry might be alive as does Hope...Bo is worried about Shawn and I'm not sure how much he heard (if any)when Shawn was talking to Cassie.
I loved Kate/Roman..these two were throwing barbs back and forth but I think Kate is weakening.
John/Marlena...Marlena is starting to remember and she says it's grief, sadness that she feels.
Tony...he knew Jarlena were headed for the island...all the alarms are turned off.
All in all not a bad show...setting up for next week.
Tuesday Feb 11
OMG...I loved this show.
J&J...I absolutely loved these two today. Jack being so supportive to Jen. The 'negative' pregnancy test...the I Love You's....and it looks like Jen
found the 'Salem Brain' as well...she told Jack about Larry and he wants to protect her family.
Jarlena...Marlena says she remembers...(now the room looks like the turret where Hope was held)she thinks she is the twins mother...John wants to protect Belle and Marlena...she says all they need is love...her and John will never be together on this...he says that's what they want..divide and conquer.
Hope...Bo doesn't tell her about his feelings that Larry is alive..he sends police protection (which disappears because Shawn is @ home)she gets home
and Shawn asks her about the pills...she tells him she doesn't need them anymore...just needs her family...she drops a cup while making tea and
decides she's going to piece together what happened...Cassie walks in a she says just remember..Cassie wants to know remember what...Hope has a surprised look on her face (God can Cassie be any more annoying...she is just plain nosey)she helps Hope clean up the broken cup...they talk about
Tony being her father...Hope says you have to have faith...she goes into the living room...falls asleep and while looking out the window sees Shawn
holding the gun on Colin...she say No, Shawn.
Bo has found the brain...he tells Shawn about Larry being alive or thinks he is...tells Shawn he has to stay calm, wants to put police protection on him
as well as Hope and Zach...Shawn says no..Bo phones Jen to tell her whats going on...finds the matchbook and say Gotcha...he goes to the DewDrop Inn...kicks in the door but no Larry. Now I have to say Bo looks mighty good kicking in that door!!! (Terri be prepared)
Cassie doesn't understand why Shawn won't take the pills..they helped his mother...she wants to know if he's upset he didn't confide in Belle...he turns around and tells her as long as those I love are safe(doesn't include you Cassie). After Bo has gone she wants to know if he told him anything, does he suspect. Shawn doesn't really tells her anything just a family things...he gets agitated and frustrated...she wants him to calm down..he's
yelling at her that it doesn't matter anymore...she keeps going on about the pills so he takes one. Not looking overly thrilled that he did it. I think
he took it more to shut her up than anything. JMO.
Larry well he's being Larry...I loved his comment about 'alien Barbie'.
The preview...Shawn putting his hand through the window in Belle's room...Belle coming in saying Shawn what have you done...he turns and looks sort of in shock...(I don't think he realized what he did until Belle spoke) blood on his knuckles.
I really enjoyed the show...and loved SDB yelling at Cassie.
I just want to say I LOVE LARRY! He coined the perfect catch phrase today in his rant – he referred to Cassie as ‘that alien Barbie’. Got to love that man – Cassie interrupted him when he thought he had the perfect opportunity to push Hope over the edge. He was still skulking around the Brady house, eavesdropping on Cassie and Belle. One thing I found a bit strange – absolutely no reaction from him when Shawn was telling Cassie that he had murdered a man.
Shawn/Cassie/Bo/Hope: Cassie hit the nail on the head today when she told Shawn she wished she could help him through this but she couldn’t because she wasn’t Belle. She asks if he regrets not telling Belle everything and now she’s leaving for Paris. He says nothing matters to him except knowing that everyone he loves is safe. He wonders why his mom’s pills are in the garbage. Hope comes back and tells him she threw the pills away. (She makes a point of asking Cassie to excuse them). She tells him because of Bo and Zach and him she’s gaining back control over her life. She tells him to get rid of the pills.
Cassie points out that the pills obviously helped his mother, he should take one. (He had already told her once that he wouldn’t). He says taking a pill wouldn’t change the fact that he was responsible for another man’s death. Bo overhears and asks him what he’s talking about. Cassie looks freaks and Shawn looks from her to his dad. He says it was because he and Belle had been out on the terrace that night several times, maybe if he would have noticed something…Bo asks Cassie to excuse them. Shawn says he was just so worried that his mom had been kidnapped again when they couldn’t find Hope. Bo tells him that he thinks Larry is alive and coming after Hope. OH MY: Warning: The look on Shawn’s face and in his eyes when Bo says this – devastating!
Shawn starts to freak and Bo tells him he has to calm down and act normal. Shawn is so far past the stage of acting normal. He asks Shawn to stay around the house until the plain clothes detectives show up. Cassie comes out and starts questioning him about whether or not he confessed. Ooooh – I could just slap that, that…alien Barbie! Shawn really starts freaking out, scares Cassie, he throws the bottle of pills, she gets them and opens them and puts some in her hand. She tells him to take one, and he does.
Hope is trying to figure out what was real and what wasn’t the night Colin died. She falls asleep on the couch – she dreams of standing by Larry’s body that turns into Colin’s body. She sees Shawn pointing a gun through the window. This part is confusing – she must have been inside when she seen Shawn with the gun, but in her dream, she’s outside by the body.
After Bo talks to Jen, he finds the matchbook from the Dew Drop In. He goes there and knocks on the door, disguises his voice, announces a delivery and then kicks the door in.
Jack/Jen: She finally does the test and it is negative. After Bo calls, she tells Jack everything. She tells him that Bo believes that maybe Hope hasn’t been just having visions of Larry, but that Larry is still alive and trying to gas-light Hope into believing that she killed Colin. She then tells Jack that this is not for print. She looks really worried when she sees his expression. He says of course, I’m just worried about your family. She looks at him and then hugs, pulls back – and I have to say, she looks absolutely radiate – and tells him she loves him with all her heart.
John/Marlena: Marlena remembers that the voice that tells her she would have no regrets is Stefano’s voice. She’s convinced she’s the twins’ mother. They go to the room where she was held, but she can’t remember any more. John says it’s because everything is changed around. He picks up a book and a secret door opens. It leads to the room where Marlena ended up last time, finding the portrait and the note. John comments about all the medical instruments – she says they could have been used to deliver babies. She’s even more convinced. John says even if they were your children, they aren’t any more. She takes offense to that. She argues with him – he says he’s not going to let them hurt her or Belle because he feels compassion for them. She says they will never agree on this. He says that is exactly what DiMera wants – to divide and conquer. But he won’t let that happen because nothing is more important to him then her.
Preview: Nicole and Brandon talking, Belle coming in carrying laundry when Shawn puts his fist through the window. She screams his name and he just looks at her with his hand still clenched in a fist and blood all over his knuckles.

Shawn is really going over the edge in a big way. He helps Cassie bring suitcases for Belle. Cassie asks him if he’s calming down after taking the pill. He says more on edge than before. Somebody get a clue here, please! Belle has her back turned to the door when she hears it open. She’s thanking Cassie and then turns around. Man, those two just lock eyes and it’s like Cassie doesn’t even exist. I can’t believe she actually leaves them alone without being asked to. Shawn’s phone rings, it’s Bo. Belle goes to get her laundry.
I have to say that I can’t believe that Bo isn’t keying into Shawn’s explosiveness. Shawn yells at him about wanting to kill Larry. Bo keeps telling him to calm down – isn’t he beginning to wonder why he has to keep saying that over and over??? Shawn is downright rude to him and basically blows his dad off when Bo tells him to let the police look after it – Shawn says, yeah, right like that’s going to happen and hangs up on Bo. He starts pacing around the room and then puts his hand almost up to the elbow through the window just as Belle comes in.
She wants to know what happened. He says it’s him mom. Things are worst and he can’t fix it. He finally lets her take him to the hospital. Craig asks him if he is on my medication because his pulse is just racing. Shawn tells him he’s nervous and it hurts like hell and he asks why he wants to know if he is on medication. Craig tells him they need to give him a local anesthetic and if he’s taking anything he could have a bad reaction. Shawn won’t say he’s on medication – he tells them to just stitch him up. Craig says it will hurt – OMG the look on his face when they start stitching him up! WOW!
Brady starts joking about him wanting to try out for Fear Factor and Shawn lashes out at him. Brady asks him what his problem is and Shawn says he doesn’t have on. Brady wonders what his sister sees in him. Shawn says not to worry about it she won’t be seeing him because she’s leaving for Paris. Cassie shows up and asks what the problem is. Shawn says no problem, he says as long as I can get out of her. Cassie starts asking him questions, he says nothing matters. He says I shot and killed a man, I’m taking my mother’s medication and I just put my fist through a window. He wonders what’s happening to him and who he’s going to hurt next. At that precise minute Belle walks in and when he looks at her – he is in complete agony. Warning: Alien Barbie (ET as Sami called her today) is making circles on his chest when Belle walks in – can’t she keep her hands off of him!)
Belle asks him if he wants a ride back to the dorm. He says no thanks, very softly and gently. She says, I’m leaving tomorrow, I guess this is good bye. He says I guess so and turns and walks away. Poor Belle, you can just see her pain in her eyes.
Geez, I said so much and haven’t even mentioned what else happened.
Sami/Belle: They talk about how the men in their lives need space. Sami says she still believes Belle is making a mistake by being out of sight. She says she shouldn’t expect Shawn to be waiting for her when she comes back. She warns her about ET. Belle says she’s not interested in Shawn that way, she told her so. Sami says, right, she told you they were just friends. She points out that she flirts constantly when she’s anywhere near him. Sami tells Belle she just wants to be happy – she should follow her heart. Belle stops Sami from eavesdropping on Brandon and Nicole’s conversation.
Brandon/Nicole: Nicole tells Brandon that Victor knows she slept with Colin. She also tells Brandon that Colin cashed the check so she’s out five million dollars. She hated the guy. Brandon asks her if she killed him. She shakes her head no but looks very scared. Brandon asks if she had thought of the possibility that Victor had him killed. She doesn’t want to hear it. He tells her to look after herself. She’s said he’s as bad off as she is but he won’t admit it. She ties into him about hooking about with Sami.
Cassie/Kate: They meet in the hospital and Kate introduces herself. She talks about Tony being their father, wonders who their mother is. Cassie says we asked Marlena to be but she turned her back on us. She hopes to never see her again. Kate says her children were taken away from her but they were eventually reunited. Lucas comments that talking about that to Cassie brought back bad memories for her. Kate phones Roman and tells him she has to talk to him, she’s coming to the police station.
Lucas/Sami: Lucas tells ‘Scami’ he’s her new boss. Don’t ask me how the administrator of a charity is automatically in charge of all the clerical staff in the hospital – but hey, that’s the story. He has her running in circles. This is going to be very entertaining.
Bo/Roman/Larry: Bo tells Roman about Larry being alive. Here we have Larry in a storm sewer cursing Bo for tracking him down – says he barely makes it out of the room on time. Yet the forensics team couldn’t find one hair or fingerprint – LOL! Bo tells Roman he has to tell Hope that Larry is alive and coming after her again. Larry is wondering how everything went wrong. Then he thinks about Shawn finding the pills. He says he hopes he starts taking them and then Hope & Bo can watch their son self-destruct while Hope confesses to murder. He’s out to destroy her precious family. Bo adds Larry’s name to the suspect list.
Preview: John & Marlena talking, Roman & Kate talking and Shawn yelling at Mimi when she tells him to convince Belle to stay.
Thursday Feb. 13
What can I say....JC is putting on an absolutely incredible performance...he's pulling this off to perfection.
The way he pulls the pills out of his pocket and they spill everywhere...Mimi sees him popping one (I love Mimi...glad she's back)she talks about pills gag her without water...she wants to talk to him pulls him towards Belle's room...he doesn't want to in to Belle's room. She starts to question him...he spills about Larry and Hope..she asks why he didn't tell Belle...he says I'm not supposed to tell anyone...she tells him he looks like hell...you need Belle to calm you...you love each other...he yells at her to shut the hell up and to stop butting in...Belle too. He goes to the house and hears Bope talking about the murder..he questions them..he's really jumpy...hard time even letting Hope hold him...goes downstairs and literally pummels the punching bag...blood everywhere...Bo grabs him asking him what's wrong..he wants to kill Larry...goes to the bag again...Bo grabs him again...tells him to calm down. He leaves to go to the dorm. Now Bo knows somethings wrong...but he's really worried about Hope (I want him to be worried about SDB). Hope says she sees something in Shawn's eyes.
Kate says Tony stole something from her...Roman and her have a good talk but she doesn't let anything out Stefano.
Tony I believes has set up Marlena on the island.
In the preview...Shawn grabs Belle and says you don't understand you have to stop...Belle in tears says stop what..he says stop loving me. His eyes are wild..his voice slurred. It's going to be a great show...he's almost at rock bottom but not quite.
Those pills are really getting the better of Shawn. Larry in his sewer laughing to himself about how Shawn must be ready to jump out of his skin by now. He comments that Shawn will be the one to help him by pushing his mother over the edge.
Shawn is looking awful. He’s shaky, sweating and disoriented. He’s outside’s Belle’s room and hangs on to hallway table. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out the pills and his hands are shaky so some of the pills go flying. He picks them up and sticks them in his pocket and pops when Mimi asks him what he’s doing. He just looks at her. She says she wants to talk, he says no. She pushes him towards Belle’s room and he says he doesn’t want to talk especially in Belle’s room. Mimi confronts him about on the outs with Belle. She then notices the broken window and asks what happened. He says he was an angry, it was an accident. She asks him if he had a fight with Belle.
She tells him he looks awful. She says he has to talk about what ever is bothering him because he’s obviously making him self sick. She says you’re nervous, you’re angry, you can’t focus. He tells her about his mom and loses it. She says that he has to calm down. He says they don’t work. She say’s what doesn’t work, he covers, by saying anything he does to relieve the stress. She asks if he’s told Belle what he just told her. He says no, I shouldn’t be talking to anyone. She tells him he should talk to Belle, she’ll help and he’ll calm down. That’s when he yells at her to shut the hell up and tells her she doesn’t know what she’s talking about and storms out of the room.
Hope has the dream about seeing Shawn with the gun. She wakes up, the phone is ringing and someone is knocking on the door. She opens the door and sees a cop and asks if he’s come to arrest her. Bo comes home and tells her the police are there to protect her. He tells her that he doesn’t have solid proof yet but he believes Larry is alive and trying to push her over the edge and into confessing to Colin’s murder. He reminds her that she seen Larry at Victor’s wedding holding a gun. Hope says do you think he killed Colin. Shawn overhears this. They both turn around and look at him when he asks what they’re talking about.
Shawn can barely control himself. Bo says that they were talking about Larry. Hope wants to know what happened to his hand. He says it’s nothing, just a small accident. She asks why he’s home, he says to pick up his weights. Bo says to trust that he’ll find Larry and Shawn stomps off to the basement and both Bo & Hope wonder what’s up. Bo says it’s all this stuff with Larry and goes down to talk to Shawn.
Our baby hurts that hand again, ladies. He starts hitting the punching bag with just one hand and looks down and sees blood on the bandage so he starts smashing that hand into the bag as well. Bo asks him what’s wrong. He screams that he’s going to kill Larry. He starts punching again and Bo tells him to stop and says look at me. Shawn doesn’t quite look him in the eye. Bo says everything will work out. He says I have to focus on your mother and finding Larry – I don’t have time to worry about you. OH MAN – Bo look at your boy – he’s in trouble and you’re just contributing to it. For god sakes, you’re a police officer – aren’t you trained to recognize when someone is on drugs????? He tells Shawn to put on a new bandage so his mom doesn’t see the bloody one. Shawn tells his dad he’s fine and that he’ll go out the back way and leaves.
Hope says you’re worried about him, aren’t you. Bo says, he’s strong, he’ll be fine. Sigh, no more comments from the peanut gallery on that delusion. The phone rings, it’s Roman – they have a break in the investigation. They found a broken onyx tuxedo stud – Bo thinks this will help prove Larry killed Colin – but, sniff, sniff, we all know who that stud (no pun intended) belongs to.
Roman/Kate: Very good conversation between them. She asks him to tell her about his years of captivity. She admits she cares for him and believes he cares for her. She comments that Stefano stole something from Roman that could never be replaced – time. She says Stefano stole something from her that she can never get back either. He tells her to tell her what – but she says she can’t. She goes crying into his arms. Okay – have to say this – she is the twin’s biological mother IMO and I have a sneaky suspicion that Roman figures into all of this somehow – but maybe, I’m seeing something that wasn’t there. All that talk about what kind of parent he was today probably led me to think this way.
John/Marlena: She is sounding more and more convinced that she is the twin’s mother and that John is only there to prove that they are evil. Again just a lot of talk about looking for the truth. LOL – John looking for a secure room for them to sleep in – walking around with this little gadget that supposed to locate hidden cameras and microphones. And oh yeah, he even had time to even set up his own high-tech security in the room so nobody could get to them while they slept.
Tony/Lexie/Bart: Tony is walking around on his own. Bart comes in with the news that Bo Brady has put out an APB on Larry Welch. Tony orders Bart to find him and bring Larry to him before the police get him. He reminds that Colin was supposed to do that and failed and look how he ended up. Bart tells Tony he really knows how to motivate. One dumb question here, he says all this in front of Lexie. She did not say one word – isn’t her husband the police commander – shouldn’t she be telling Tony to stay out of it????
Preview: Hope answering the door, Larry standing there hiding his face behind a bouquet of flowers. Bo saying he’ll throw Larry in jail, that will be proof that he’s alive. Belle and Shawn at Lookout Point standing by the truck. He yells at her that she has to stop. She looks so confused and asks him what. He grabs her shoulders and shakes her and literally yells at her telling her she has to stop loving him. Oh my – this is going to be a heartbreaker – those eyes of hers were so filled with pain in just that one quick shot. (Don’t worry, he shakes her gently).
Friday Feb. 14
I'm going to let Pat fill in the blanks...because quite honestly I was so blown away by the performances of JC/KS today that I'm a little speechless.
First let me say I love Rimi...the way she tugs at him to come with her and he goest right along with her plans.
I'll get right to Lookout Point...Shawn says he'll drive her back...they get in the truck and Rex has the keys..he bangs his hand on the steering wheel and swears...Belle starts babbling (nerves)about where they are as Shawn pops another pill..Belle gets out of the truck and talks about the snowman..how she wishes it had snowed so they could have another one...Shawn gets out and says we can't go back..we can never go back...she stays I still love you..he grabs her and says you have to stop..she doesn't understand..he says you don't have to you have to stop loving me...she tells him he's hurting her...she sees rage and hatred...he says I don't hate you..she wants to know what she did...he tells her about Larry...she goes to hug him...he yells don't touch me...I don't want your pity..I want Larry dead...(he's screaming)...she goes to leave..he grabs her..she says don't touch me...and takes off...he follows. Mimi comes up...he quite quiet when talking to her...says I hurt Belle...I grabbed her...she hates me. Mimi says no...she doesn't understand..He needs Belle...he says no...and he is sort of babbling...all the time wringing his hands...Mimi is watching and looks very concerned. Belle tells Rex this isn't the Shawn she fell in love with. Bo calls and Shawn talks to both him and Hope...he is totally out of it. The looks in both their eyes today...OMG I'm still shaking.
Loved the Larry/Hope scenes...as she dreams of him. Loved Larry coming out of the sewer into Bope's backyard...and in the basement planning their demise.
Preview....Alice telling Shawn to go after Belle (it's nice to see a smile on his face...and a little bit of hope) Belle telling (I think Rex) that she couldn't have been wrong about Shawn loving her.
Awesome show...awesome performances by JC/KS...Rimi were great....Loved AM...he's doing a great job.
Will be here to share our support tomorrow...it will be needed.
OMG – there are hardly words to describe JC’s performance today. (But you know I’m going to try …) Incredible, absolutely incredible.
He’s in Belle’s dorm room with Mimi apologizing to her. She tells him he has to make things right with Belle. She tells they love each other and that Belle is his anchor and he is hers. He raises his voice to her again when Belle and Rex walk in. Belle asks Mimi what’s going on – Shawn says he has to leave.
Mimi grabs Rex and they leave – she tells him she’s not going to let her friends break up (something like that). Mimi takes Belle to Look-out Point, Shawn and Rex show up in the truck. Belle tells this was not a good idea and they take off. Belle says I can’t believe that Mimi left me stranded here. Shawn says he’ll take her back. They get in the truck and he bangs his hand on the steering way yelling that Rex took his keys. Warning ladies: Shawn’s hand is all bloody – I don’t think he changed the bandage.
They sit in the truck and Belle says that they probably that they were doing them a favor by leaving them stranded there. They probably expect us to kiss and make-up. Shawn just sits there not saying a word. Belle says –little do they know. Shawn turns to the side and pops another pill. Belle looks out the window and says I recognize this place. She gets out and says this is where we built the snowman and she turns to him and says where you first told me you….and then she stops. He’s sitting in the truck and I swear his eyes are teary – but could be they’re just glazed over from the drugs.
She keeps on nattering about how there was more snow last year, this year not much, she wishes there was more (sweetie, have I got a deal for you…..). She wishes they could go back in time. Shawn gets out of the truck and he tells they can’t ever go back because everything has changed. Her eyes are so hurt and full of pain when she tells him that she stills loves him, that she doesn’t understand. He grabs her shoulders and starts shaking her (gently, at first) saying you have to stop, just stop. She’s so confused and says what do I have to stop – he yells at that she just has to stop loving him.
She’s totally not understanding now and he starts shaking her harder and she looks into his eyes as he keeps telling her not to love him and then she cries out for him to stop because he’s hurting her. As soon as she said that, he drops his arms and turns to the lean on the truck – the look of anguish in his eyes – my god! Damn, I’m getting teary again. She says she seen a look in his eyes that she never seen before – rage and hate. She wants to know what she did to make him feel that way. He’s stunned and says I don’t hate you (again with the eyes – so much said with those eyes). He tells her about the possibility of Larry still being alive.
She goes to him and says in that oh so soft voice, I’m sorry, Shawn and she reaches up to caress his face and he yells at her not to touch him – he doesn’t need her pity. He needs for Larry to die. She says I don’t know who you are anymore. He says again that Larry has to die Belle, he just has to. He reaches out for her and she says don’t touch me – I have to leave. He says, almost pleadingly, don’t go…but she does.
When she gets back to the dorm – she’s trying to lock the door and Rex is pushing to get in and she says Shawn I don’t want you in here. She tells Rex that she felt Shawn might actually hurt him. She doesn’t know what’s going on with him but that is not the Shawn she fell in love with.
Mimi goes back and apologizes. Shawn is heartbroken. He told Mimi that Belle’s scared of him, that he yelled at her and he’s lost her… He tells Mimi to leave before he does something to her. He says he doesn’t know what’s wrong with him. He’s all sweaty and scratching at his stitches, blood on both hands now – and I do believe Mimi knows. She goes. Bo and Hope phone and tell him they’re going away. He holds it together and tells them to have a good time.
I’ll just give a brief recap of the rest of the show.
Lexie/Brandon/Sami/Abe: Brandon goes to talk to Lexie – Sami barges into Abe’s office trying to get him to go home. The cop watching Abe’s house phones Abe and tells him Brandon is there. Brandon tells Lexie he won’t bad-mouth Abe anymore because he obviously makes her happy. Sami and Brandon talk – she wants him to promise not to see Lexie anymore – he won’t. Lexie phones and tells him he is not welcome at her house any longer. (He said he felt connected to her – but when he said that he looked down at her stomach – she feels he thinks the baby is his).
Roman tells Bo the DA doesn’t believe that Larry is alive – he believes Bo is just protecting the real killer – one of his own. Bo yells out that no Brady killed Colin.
Hope dreams that Larry is holding a gun on her, kissing her, telling her they’re going to be together forever, that he will always be with her, Bo comes in and he shoots him. Bo waits her up and comforts her. She says what Larry said in her dream is true – he’s always going to be with her – Bo says, not after I catch him. He makes plans for the night and they go.
In the mean time, after his little chat with the rats – Larry makes his through the sewers to a grate conveniently in the Brady yard?????? He breaks in through the storm doors to the basement. He overhears their conversation with Shawn and then hears them leave. He says while they’re gone he’ll do some housekeeping and turn their happy little haven into a living hell.
Preview: Shawn talking to Alice about Belle leaving – her saying well you better get going then – and we get the famous Shawn smile/smirk. Belle saying she knew Shawn loved her once, she’s sure of that…(sorry don’t remember the rest).
Monday Feb. 17
Romance is alive and well in Salem.

Larry trying to kill Alice....I'm going to kill Larry for even trying that...LOL.
What an amazingly romantic, sweet, loving show! Very worthy of Valentine’s Day!!!
Only one blip in the whole thing – Alien Barbie – yuck!! Mimi calls her ‘space girl’ today – lol!
Jack/Jen: So incredibly sweet. Right from the start with Abby as the little cupid to the end when Jack carries her up to the bedroom. After Abby leaves, Jack takes her into the decorated dining room. Serves her heart shaped pancakes topped with strawberries. He wears the apron – her the chef’s hat – they feed each other. Then he gives her a watch with a heart shaped face because he knows with everything they’ve been through – she needs time. They talk about the future and the past – flashback to his proposal in the Santa suit. He says eventually he’ll try again. She says no and tells him to wait. She comes down in a Santa suit and proposes! Beautifully romantic!
Bope: What can a say – oh so extremely sexy and hot. The gifts he gives her to remind her of their past and the flashbacks. To their first meeting by his bike – the kissing booth at the carnival. They wonder what would have happened if they hadn’t met that night – Bo says they would have met some other place and time. She agrees because she says they were destined for each other. They have the vision of meeting at the Blue Note – he’s a detective – don’t know what she is – but she backs into his motorcycle with her car. Bo and the singer were talking – Michael was saying it was too bad he was alone on Valentine’s Day – and that he shouldn’t give up hope. Bo says you can’t give up what you never have.
They dance – very flirtatious and coy that dance and – hot, hot, hot!!! Papa Bo still has the moves! They’re back in their room and in a truly remarkable scene – they dance with just sheets wrapped around them – prepare yourselves ladies – shirtless Bo today!!!
Belle/Rex: Belle is packing and holding a picture of herself and Shawn to her bosom. She packs it – Rex knocks and says there was a delivery for her. She’s puzzled - opens the card that is signed Love Always Shawn. She looks very confused and says Shawn probably ordered it before they broke up. Rex says he didn’t stop the delivery, she says he probably forgot. She opens it and pulls out a snowman. She has a flashback to when Shawn first told her he loved her. She’s so sad. She says to Rex, I know he loved me once. I wasn’t wrong about that. Rex asks her if she’s sure about going to Paris. She says right now she isn’t sure about anything. The chauffeur comes to pick her up and she hugs Rex and leaves. On the plane, she’s seated, tears flowing and she says ‘Goodbye Shawn.’
Shawn/Cassie/Mimi/Alice: That freak brings Shawn tea and they sit on the couch. I swear to God if she touches him just one more time – I’m going to deck her. GRRRRRR! She has the unmitigated audacity to put her hands on the inside of his thigh. She tells him it’s Valentines Day and they could have a private party – just the two of them. He says no – Shawn push her the hell out the god-damn door instead of sitting there letting her paw you! Damn! He says he’s just happy to be out of the dorm – and Mimi says so you don’t have to be there when Belle leaves. Cassie snipes at her asking her she got in. Mimi says I’m not a danger – how did you get in. Cassie says Shawn invited her to come over – he wants to be alone with her. That’s when Mimi calls her Space Girl. So Shawn gets up and tells Mimi that he meant it when he told her to stay away from him.
Mimi says I brought Belle’s valentine’s gift to you. He asks her if Belle wanted her to. Cassie says if Belle really wanted him to have it she would have brought it herself. Shawn agrees with Cassie (Ok – time for Shawn to get a slap to the head – wake up, already). Mimi says she’s giving you a second chance – you might not get a third. So he opens it. He reads what Belle wrote. She copied pages of her journal that talked about their relationship so he would know how much she loved him.
When he starts reading it (he’s reading, Belle’s voice) the first entry is about the night he told her he loved her. The look in his eyes and the small smile on his face – captured the emotions just perfectly. Cassie tries to go to him and Mimi gets her out of the house. Cassie tries to get a response from Shawn, but he doesn’t even look at her. He’s reading the part where she says she always thought she would wait until marriage to make love with a man – but she doesn’t want to wait anymore because she knows she’ll never love anyone as much as she loves him.
Alice comes in and asks him what’s so interesting. He says it’s Belle thoughts on their relationship (he tells her they’re not back together) – she says you still love her. He smiles and nods. She says go tell her – he says I can’t she’s leaving in a short while for Paris. She says then you better get moving. After he leaves she talks to Tom – says Shawn is a good man – just like him and she wishes Tom a happy Valentine’s Day.
Shawn gets to the airport – too late. The plane has boarded. He’s just so dejected as he shuffles out of the airport.
King Rat Larry rigging the carbon monoxide pipe to pump gas into the house – saying that he’ll be sending Alice, the matriarch of Salem, off to Tom-Tom land.
Preview: Sami giving Brandon a gift. John trying to wake Marlena up…sorry don’t remember what else ... oh yeah, no wonder I forgot - Broe.
Tuesday Feb. 18
After watching today's epi I'm not sure what to say. It didn't even come close to Friday's show and IMO they showed the best on Friday. If it hadn't
been for Doug/Julie, Mickey/Maggie and yes even Brami this would have been a flop.
I didn't even really watch the Broe stuff...I just can't get into this couple.
The J&M scenes were not bad...at least they didn't spend the whole show talking about the twins. John joked around a little and he cooked a steak but there wasn't a lot.
Doug/Julie...I miss these two. Loved the story about Hope's Winnie the Pooh burning up the hoover. Too cute.
Mickey/Maggie...celebrating their 25th anniversary.
Brami...Brandon setting the whole thing up with Maggie. Plants his apartment key in a bowl of V-day candies that all say Be Mine. Sami is so excited when she sees the key and he asks her to move in that she jumps on his lap. BTW...she had a 4 leaf clover in the package to him...one her grandmother gave her for luck that never worked until maybe now she thinks.
The preview....shows Belle and we know it's Rex on the plane....SDB caught by Alice popping pills. (Looks like a deer caught in the headlights).
To be honest this show disappointed me or maybe after Friday's excellent show it just didn't compare.
Are you ready for this ladies – I really don’t have a lot to say about today’s show. It’s a continuation of Valentine’s Day. The couples featured are Doug & Julie, Mickey & Maggie, Sami & Brandon, John & Marlena and Brady & Chloe.
Doug/Julie: They’re looking after Zach who has the sniffles. They reminiscent about past Valentine’s Days and Doug says every day with her is like Valentine’s Day. They have a really sweet talk about the disappearance of Hope’s favorite stuffed animal – Winnie the Pooh. Adorable!
Brady/Chloe: Also at Green Mountain Lodge – amazes me how everyone got reservations there so easily. They were cute and playful in the early scenes – except, sorry, have to say this – Kyle Lowder should never wear a toque – it does nothing for him. Chloe actually says she needs to talk about the possibility of dying. (This is another flashback, mourning memory IMO). She says she has everything in her life she ever wanted, her family and him.
Sami & Brandon: At Tuscany. They’re talking – Sami is very vulnerable in this episode. She’s thrilled to death simply by the fact that Maggie tells her that she & Brandon should make reservations way in advance for Valentine’s Day at Tuscany. She says no one ever expects any relationship of mine to last. He orders dessert. She says I’m full which is good. She says in the past when she was emotional she would eat doughnuts, chocolate, plain, stale – they were her best friend. Maggie delivers the dessert special which is a bowl of candy hearts. She eats one – Brandon says you’re supposed to read them. They all say Be Mine – he says try and find one that says something different. She finds a key and he asks her to move in with him. She’s so excited that she jumps up and sits in his lap and yells so that everyone hears that she would be honored to live with him.
Maggie/Mickey: He gives her roses for their 25th Anniversary. He has a table reserved, arranged for someone to take over for her. He wants to bet her ten dollars that Sami and Brandon won’t last past March 1st – LOL! Maggie says Brandon is a counselor, she hears he works wonders with troubled youth. They refer to Sami as an adult juvenile delinquent.
John/Marlena: Very loving and playful today. John trying to distract her from focusing too much on Stefano and the past. But really – steaks on dry ice and then grilled on a long fork in the fireplace – that’s pushing it a bit. At the end they hear a noise and John says they’re not alone.
Preview: Belle looking up at someone standing by her seat, saying I don’t believe this. Alice catching Shawn popping pills. Bo answers the door at the Lodge and Larry is standing there – Hope saying you’re not real (or something like that).
Wednesday Feb. 19
God love Alice! Shawn comes back to the house so upset from having missed
Belle. Rips his jacket off, throws it on to a chair, mumbling to himself
that if only he would have been there 10 minutes earlier. He pulls the pills
out and says I'll take one more. Alice asks him what he's doing with those
He's says its pain medication. She asks about Belle. He snaps at her and
then goes into the kitchen. When he comes down she asks him to talk to her -
reminding how they used to talk. He yells at her to mind her own business.
(Each time he snaps at her you can see how he immediately regrets it -
another great performance by JC.) He stomps up the stairs.
Alice calls Bo & Hope who've just had 'dessert - ahem' after sharing another
romantic dance. While they're dancing Bo is trying to convince Hope she is
safe. Room service guy comes to the door and Hope tells him to go away
because she thinks it's Larry.
Alice calls and tells them to come home because something is wrong with
Shawn. He needs them. They decide to leave Zach with Doug & Julie. They come
in just as Shawn fires a book towards the front door and knocks a vase over.
He asks them what the hell they're doing at home. He really rants at them,
saying he doesn't need a babysitter, to stop treating him like a two year
old. Bo says stop acting like one or, and Shawn glares at him and says,
what, you going to ground me. He tells them to go back to the Lodge - he
doesn't need them.
Bo starts in on him and Hope intervenes. She looks at Shawn and says this is
all about Belle she left for Paris today and Shawn just nods. He says he
tried to stop her but he couldn't get past security because he didn't have a
ticket. He says now she's gone and he hated leaving things live that between
them. He says she hates me now. Bo gets pages leaves for the station.
Roman has confirmation that Larry is alive. Bo is convinced he killed Colin.
Belle is not very pleased about seeing Rex there. He says he's her friend
and he just wants to be there for her whenever she needs him - just like she
was there for him and Cassie. Boy those spoilers are sure misleading - they
say he goes to Paris to convince Belle to come to Salem. What a crock. All
he says to her is that he bets she wishes she never left Salem, never left
She gets mad at him and tells him to move. He doesn't know her - he can't
know what's she's thinking. She then apologizes and he says he always knows
how she feels - he's known since they met and he can't explain why. He's all
excited about Paris and says what should we do first when we get there.
She says go home. She tells him she should have never left Shawn. She loves
him to much. She wants to know why he's pushing her away - what's going with
him. She needs to go home now.
John/Marlena/Tony: Confrontation between John and Tony. Marlena the
peacekeeper. Tony says he wants to find out the truth about the twins just
as much as they do. He conveniently finds a letter from Stefano - yeah,
right! - Stefano talks about the twins being the destiny of the DiMera
family (Stefano mentions in the letter that he knows Tony would know about
them by now). More mumbo jumbo about the stuff in his will and a subtle
warning to Marlena that she might wish for that long sleep if she keeps
digging into her past. Tony is incensed at the letter and rips it up.
Roman/Kate: She still won't tell him anything. She says that John and
Marlena wouldn't be very wise looking for the truth if Stefano had been
involved. Alludes to the fact that he could still reach out from the grave.
Larry: Very happy to hear that Shawn is taking the pills - says no telling
what he's going to do when he really loses it. He laughs at the police
because he got away from the Brady house with no one seeing him. He says
he'll be there to watch them carry the Brady's out in body bags. Back at the
house, Alice is sleeping in the guest room, Hope is getting a headache and
lies down on the couch - carbon monoxide pumping through the house.
Preview: All I remember is Bo and Roman at the station - Shawn coming in and
them saying they need to ask him some questions about Colin's murder.
Unfortunately Bo & Hope still don't have a clue about the extent of Shawn's
troubles - but all in all, a good show.
Well what can I say it was a good show....
Shawn's upset he missed Belle at the airport...if only he'd been 10 mins earlier...takes one more pill maybe it will help...Alice wants to know what he's doing...he tells her it's for his hand...she asks if he caught Belle at the airport..he says no..I don't even know why I tried...she want to talk about it...he gets snippy with her and heads to the kitchen...comes back with a cup of tea for Alice...she's worried about him...she tells him he used to tell her everything with a couple of donuts..he yells he doesn't want to talk and takes off upstairs...gotta love Alice...she phones Bope and tells the Shawn needs them...as they come in he throws a book at the door...asks why the hell they are home...(he does a lot of swearing in this show) Bo grabs him by the shirt...they are staring at each other...eyes blazing...jaws clenching...Hope steps in...asks if it's about Belle...he says he wanted to apologize..didn't want to leave it like this...Bo leaves to the station...Shawn is stomping around...Hope tells him to sit he's giving her a headache...it ends with Hope on the couch...Shawn/Alice/Hope in the house...I really don't like that Alice is there!!!
Belle is being strong...she loves Shawn and wants to go home and find out what's going on. You go girl!!!!!
I loved Kate/Roman scenes today.
Tony/John/Marlena....I'm not sure but I still think Tony set this up.
A good show...and you'll love Belle in this one. She is being strong and determined. Bope still can't figure out what's wrong. But I'm sure they soon will!!!
Thursday Feb. 20
I'll start with Belle...her and Rex show up at the mansion...now Cassie looks a little upset that Belle's back....that she had to be here...Cassie
says something about Larry being alive and Belle says I know...she hugs Rex good-bye and walks out...Cassie gives Rex a dirty look. Belle shows up at the Brady's...Hope is in the driveway...Belle says all the
people she loves are here..this is where she should be..she knows Larry's alive...Hope says something to her about Shawn going to the airport...Belle
says I know he didn't want to break up with me..Hope and Belle put their arms around each other and go into the house. (now with all those cops around I can't believe they haven't seen Larry sulking in the bushes)Belle and Hope talk...Hope tells her she loves her...she was so happy that her and Shawn were together...if Shawn mistreated her she wants to know. Belle says he didn't mistreat me...he was pushing me away like he was trying to punish
himself...I pushed away from him when he needed me and I don't want to regret that. I really loved their talk today, it's so nice to see them
discussing Shawn and I can see a lot more of this in the future. (I know I missed a lot but I have spazzy hands...LOL)
Shawn at the station...he walks in and pops another pill (it's his second I believe) Bo/Roman want to talk to him about the stud from his tux...he
doesn't say anything just stands there as Roman leaves and Bo says he has to tell him...it will be worse if he keeps quiet...he tells Bo he needs a
minute (he says that a few times)and finishes off the bottle of pills...Roman comes in and he and Bo talk...as Bo is upset that Roman told Abe/DA...Shawn wants them to quit fighting...Cassie/Rex storm into Abe's office (nothing is private)and Cassie says Shawn don't do it...Shawn says thank you for everything but it's time to end it...Cassie is yelling at Shawn not to say anything..Bo tells Cassie to be quiet..Shawn freaks...you want a murderer...my uncle wants me to be the murderer to he can solve the
case...I'll give you what you want...as he pushes past Bo and knocks over the suspect board...he then slumps into Bo's arms. (his voice is slurred
and he's stumbling through the last scene)
Cassie tells Rex about seeing Shawn kill Colin.
Marlena/John/Tony....Marlena sleepwalks and hears Rolf's voice telling her to breath...she collapses in Tony's arms...she tells John that she'll do whatever Tony wants.
Crancy...Nancy telling her Dad that she doesn't want him to be a part of her family..after he lied about her due date and kept them out of Chloe's
life...Patrika gave a wonderful performance today.
The beginning of the show with Hope/Alice/Shawn was great...the way their eyes were heavy and they cuddled on the couch. I'm so glad that Alice went
It was a wonderful show...JC gave another incredible performance. KS/KA were excellent as well. Actually there were great performances by everyone...I can't wait for tomorrow.
Yes, it was confirmed – it’s still Valentine’s Day – LMAO!
Craig/Nancy/Nancy’s Papa/Chloe/Brady: Chloe and Brady in a hot tub with bubbles – enough said, moving on. Nancy confronts her father although she doesn’t really let him say anything. She had it all figured out that he was the one that lied to her. She tells him because he deprived Chloe of her parents and her grandparents that he could have nothing to do with the next grandchild, no gifts, no visits, etc. (Chloe had called home but Craig wouldn’t talk, said Nancy was fine, but she wanted to go home). She hears what her grandfather did, won’t forgive him. He leaves. She tells Nancy she’s sorry for treating her the way she had. She has everything she always wanted now a home and a future. Chloe and Brady go back to the lodge (Please no more love?????? Scenes…)
John/Marlena/Tony: Is it just me or is this story moving at a snail’s pace. Marlena hears Rolf’s voice, starts sleepwalking, Tony follows. Marlena hears Rolf telling her to sleep and she fights it and passes out in Tony’s arms just as John walks in looking for Marlena. More of the antagonism between those two – I have to say this is kind of stale. They don’t have the same chemistry as enemies that John and Stefano did – IMO. Tony has a plan to help Marlena remember more – John doesn’t like – Marlena says she has to do what Tony wants. HUH?????
Alice/Hope/Shawn: Some cute scenes between the three of them – they all think they’re coming down with the flu. Shawn is very sweet to both ladies. He hugs Hope close to him when the three are on the couch. Alice wants to go home. Shawn phones Maggie to pick her up. Bo phones, talks a bit to Hope and then speaks to Shawn and tells him he needs to see him at the police station. You can just see the fear in Shawn’s eyes.
Rex/Cassie/Be1le: They stop in at the DiMera mansion, Cassie wants to know why they’re back. Belle says she’s back because she knows Shawn needs her. Cassie doesn’t like that. Belle takes a cab and leaves to go to the Brady house when Cassie mentions Shawn is spending the night at home. Cassie starts in on Rex asking him why it’s okay for him to follow Belle to Paris and back, yet she can’t be without someone she really cares for Shawn. She says he doesn’t need Belle anymore, they’re over, he needs her more than ever. Rex pressures her about keeping secrets – she blurts out that Shawn killed Colin Murphy. Rex says they have to go tell the police. She says no. He says you do or I will – it’s the right thing to do.
Bo/Roman/Shawn/Cassie/Rex: Roman tells Bo the stud belongs to Shawn. Bo calls Shawn in for questioning. He had just taken a pill for ‘pain’ at the house after passing out aspirin to Alice and Hope. Shawn takes another pill before going into see his Dad. They tell him about finding the stud. He keeps looking back and forth between them, not able to really say anything when they ask him how the stud got ripped off. He flashes back to the fight with Colin. Bo finally senses something and asks Roman to give them a minute. He tells Shawn the longer he keeps quiet the worst it looks. He’s a suspect now. Roman comes back in and Bo is still telling him to back off Shawn, he’s not the killer. They start arguing and Shawn (who had turned his back and swallowed the rest of the pills) yells for them not to fight – he’ll tell them everything. Rex and Cassie come in, she say’s no Shawn. He thanks her for everything she’s done but he’s ready to tell them everything. She starts up again, the pills take affect and Shawn accuses Roman of wanting to arrest him because it will make him look good. He’s ranting and throws the suspect board and passes out.
Belle/Hope/Larry: Belle pulls up just as Hope is ready to go back in the house after Alice leaves. Hope is surprised to see her and tells her Shawn will be happy to see her back. She tells him that he was crushed when he didn’t get to the airport in time. Belle is very happy and says I knew he didn’t want to break up with me. They go inside. They talk about Shawn. Belle says it would be easier to accept if she knew why and understood why Shawn was breaking up with her. Hope says he says it was a mutual agreement that they needed space from each other. She says Shawn told her that she was having a very hard time dealing with everything going on in family. Belle wants to leave because she’s feeling sorry for herself. Hope says it’s okay to feel sorry for herself and confused and she can say what she wants about Shawn. If he mistreated her, she’ll have a talk with him. She tells Belle she loves her and wants to help because she was so happy that her and Shawn were together. Belle talks about it's almost like Shawn doesn't believe he deserves to be loved. Hope looks worst and Belle asks if she can get her anything. She sends her to the medicine cabinet to get antacid. Larry is in the living room – Hope thinks he’s not real until he grabs her by the wrists. He’s one sick puppy. He’s taunting her and rubbing her hands down the side of his face.
Highlight of the show (my opinion): the volumes of words that JC conveyed today just by his expression and his eyes – without saying a word. How could Roman and Bo not see the pain and the fear and the guilt???
Preview: John and Tony fencing, Larry catching Belle trying to hit him with a vase.
Friday Feb. 21
OMG...WOW....Kudos to JC, his performance today..awesome!!
Shawn is rushed into ER on a stretcher...his pulse is racing, he's unconcious. They take him into a room...Bo tries to call Hope but can't get an answer. Roman wants to go in but Bo say I'll go he's my son. Shawn is shaking..perspiration running down his forehead...he's a mess. Bo goes outside...Craig shows him the empty bottle...Bo goes in to talk to Shawn (with Roman listening behind the curtain)Bo can't believe Shawn would take drugs..he hates them..doesn't want to mess his mind...won't even drink because of it..Bo wants the nurse to give him something...shows her the bottle...the nurse says that's not what he was taking...Shawn says it's because of Larry...Bo says there has to be more...I love you, we can get through this..Shawn says...I...Killed...Colin. (Of course Roman hears)...Bo won't talk to Roman...Roman tells Kate that right now he's not his brother he's a cop and this will tear his family apart. Bo goes back in and asks about Hope...Shawn says she was sick..took aspirin and laid down..Bo wants Roman to check with the cops at the house...Roman calls and says everything is fine...Bo wants to know if they went inside...Roman says no there is no reason to the house is covered (please don't let them protect me..LOL)Bo goes back and Shawn wants to go to Hope..Bo goes back out as Shawn says I have to go, I feel something's wrong..I have to leave (the camera fans to Belle)Craig won't let him go. Awesome scenes by JC today.
Cassie wants to see Shawn...Roman/Bo say no family only..LOL. (all through the show..everytime Bo sees her he gives her a dirty look).
I love Belle...she tries so hard. Larry catches her with the vase...makes her board up the windows...although Belle refuses @ first...Larry points a gun at her. After he handcuffs her to the stairs...she chuckles at him and says how are you going to get out you glued the doors...he says the way I came in through the basement...Belle is trying to be so strong...Hope tries to throw something through the window but collapses...Belle says it's up to me as the show ends.
Wonderful performances by KA/KS/AM at the Brady house...JC/PR at the hospital. Very intense.
Victor/Nicole...I'm thinking Nicole did it but I really don't like the way this is going...Victor the Czar..Nicole his serf!!
John/Tony/Marlena...a duel...Marlena hearing babies crying.
A great show...enjoy!!
Pardon my french but all I can say about today's show is OMFG!!!!!!
I'm speechless - (good thing I'm typing this and not trying to talk)
JC - can his performance possibly get any better today. His hospital scenes
- the reaction from those pills - when Bo kept asking him what was wrong -
unbelievable! So powerful and gripping. Bo reminded him of what Shawn had
told him - Shawn could never understand why kids would turn to drugs - risk
damaging their minds.
Shawn tells him they were his mom's pills he needed to calm down. All the
stress from Larry and...Bo says what else. Shawn begs him not to make him
tell him. Bo says whatever it is they'll get through it - they're a family.
Bo tells him, your my son and I love you. Shawn tells says very slowly,
enunciates each word I....killed....Colin.
GRRRRRR....Roman is eavesdropping around the corner. All I can say is Rex
was right when he's talking to Cassie. She says thanks for sticking up for
her (Roman came on really strong and wanted answers - Rex says you're
supposed to be a hero, not bullying someone). Rex looks right at Roman and
says to Cassie, we're family. Families are supposed to stick up for one
another. Cassie wants to see Shawn when Bo comes out - Bo and Roman both say
no. Roman tells Cassie he has questions for her - Rex says talk to our
family lawyer. LOL!
Craig tells Bo and Shawn that Marlena had subscribed very mild tranquilzers
for Hope - what Shawn had been taking was ampethamines. Shawn says I only
took what was in that bottle. Bo says someone must have tampered with them.
He goes to tell Roman to call the police guarding his house to check on
Hope. (He had tried to call but Larry broke the phone. Shawn later told him
she wasn't feel well). When Bo goes to talk to Roman - Shawn wants to leave,
the nurse says no. He says I have a really bad feeling. I have to get home.
For some reason Kate shows up at the hospital. She senses the tension
between Roman and Bo. Roman wanted to question Shawn and Bo had told him he
would talk to his son. Roman tells her he's not talking to me right now
because I'm not his brother right now, I'm a cop. Would someone please
remove that stick from his ass - because I know what I'd like to do with it
Roman tells Bo - everything is fine. Bo says did the cops go into the house.
Roman, the hero cop, tells him no need to - Larry can't get in. Bo goes to
tell Shawn he's going home to check on Hope. Shawn says he wants to come -
Craig says not a good idea, Bo says stay here.
Back at the Brady house, Larry keeps taunting Hope. Tells her he's poisoning
the house with carbon monoxide. Belle hides on the stairwell. Hope sees her
and keeps Larry distracted. Just as Belle is going to whack him over the
head, he sees her reflection in a framed picture. He grabs her. He makes
Belle nail the windows shut - never mind Miss Black in the living room with
a vase - Miss Black with HAMMER and NAILS - lol!
Hope passes out. He puts glue in the door locks and jambs and handcuffs
Belle to the railing. She says he's not very smart if because he's trapped
inside with them. He tells her he can get out the same way he got in through
the basement. He goes down there but the rat gets trapped in his own trap.
He passes out from the gas. Hope comes to briefly and tries to through a
vase through the window, can't, passes out again. Belle says, it's up to me
(that's the ending of the show).
John and Tony fencing. They each draw blood. Marlena is out for a walk -
she's as tired as the rest of us of hearing Tony saying I'm not my father
and John pooh-poohing anything Tony says. Just have to comment on the fact
that John and Tony are dressed and Marlena is still walking around in her
negligee. Of course it's the middle of the night and they can't sleep
because the workmen are working in the tower. Tony brought them in from a
neighbouring island - to convert the tower room so Marlena could get her
memory back. Yeah right - workmen, boat, middle of the night - sheesh. In
her walk, she here's a baby crying. She's standing at the edge of a cliff by
the ocean screaming Don't go. She tells John and Tony someone was taken away
from the island by boat.
Victor and Nicole. I have to say - I am deeply disturbed by what I seen on
the screen today. I don't know what Victor has on her, but he forces her to
admit that whatever she's reading in this document that's her wedding
present is true. He says he's a tzar and she's a serf. He refers to himself
as Tzar Victor the First. Everything he says from now on, the only response
she's allowed is yes. Not liking what follows. In my mind - what's he's
doing is rape. I don't like Nicole but I sure didn't like what I seen today.
I'm hoping we're not going to get more of this kind of stuff.
Preview: more Broe in the hot tub - pul-leeze stop the torture, Bo chasing
Larry throw the sewers, Shawn breaking the window - cuts to the vent where
gas is flowing the house.
Powerful performance by JC - disturbing Victor/Nicole scenes - I don't know
where they're trying to take this. Loved when Belle says it's up to her!
Monday Feb. 24
Broe: All I have to say is I just cannot get into them as a couple. It's
painful watching them together - I don't see the chemistry their fans
obviously see. Foreshadowing - she's sleeping, he's praying that this isn't
all the time they have together.
Jack & Jennifer: They were just so sweet and adorable today. Both kind of
shy. They're in bed together and remembering the feelings they had for each
other on their wedding day. (Jen had pulled out their wedding album.) They
go straight from talking about their feelings for each other then to how
they feel for each other now, all these years later. Jack says she's not the
only one that can be sentimental, he has something for her as well -
literally slides out of the bed onto the floor - don't think that was
planned. He gives her ring that he had given her the first time. He says
he'll buy a new ring because they're starting over, but he wants something
Tony/John/Marlena: Marlena says she'll do whatever Tony wants her to if it
will help get her memory back. She crawls into the bed in the tower room and
remembers giving birth to the twins. Dr. Rolf delivered them. Man, is there
anything this guy CAN'T do???? She tells them about the delivery. Tony is
overjoyed and covers Marlena hand with his and says, you gave birth to Rex
and Cassie here - our babies, yours and mine. John is crushed, Marlena is
Roman/Kate: He tells Kate that he overheard Shawn admit to murder. He has to
arrest him - no special favors. Can I just slap him upside the head, just
once, please???? He goes to talk to Shawn even though Bo expressly told him
to leave him alone, but the hospital bed is empty. He puts out an APB on
Shawn and tells them to call a judge - I guess for an arraignment. He knows
the DA is going to go after Shawn big time, but he tells Kate, he has a duty
to his badge and the law. She says he has integrity, more than she ever
will, she wants to call it quits with him. Intergrity, my ass (oops, sorry!)
Shawn: Wants to go, Bo says I'll look after your mom. He tells the nurse
he's going to leave, she says no, he says it' my body. He gets to the house
and sees the police trying to open the door. He gives them his keys. They
say they don't work. Shawn grabs a piece of firewood (while the Salem PD are
standing around discussing their next course of action) and busts the window
and goes inside.
He stops in midstride when he sees Belle, rushes to him Mom and yells that
she has a pulse - finally 2 cops break the door in. Shawn rushes to Belle,
she says carbon monoxide, he busts the railing and carries her outside.
Bo comes home and notices the manhole cover being lowered. He takes off
after Larry. Catches him and beats the living daylights out of him. Bo wants
to know what he was doing at his house. Larry tells him that he made sure
carbon monoxide was pumping through the house and that Hope is dead. Bo
takes him back to the house and tells some other cops to take the scum off
Belle lying on a gurney. Shawn asking her what she was doing there. She just
says I love you Shawn and he looks at her but doesn't say anything. His mom
calls for him. He lets go of Belle's hand and goes to her. She says she
loves him. The sweetest most profound, telling moment of things to come
(IMO)happens next. No words spoken, just Shawn holding Hope's hand with one
of his and then reaching and taking Belle's hand in his other hand -
standing between them both.
Belle tells him that Rex was on the plane and they talked. She admitted to
Rex that she didn't want to run from her problems, she wanted to be with
him, whether he wanted her to be or not. She gets off the gurney and he
holds her and tells her he loves her. She says I know, he says, no Belle, I
really love you. He tells her that he's never going to be apart from her
again. Roman says I don't think you can keep that promise and then places
him under arrest for the murder of Colin Murphy. Bo wants to know what he's
doing, Hope and Belle look shocked and Shawn just stares at Roman.
Preview: Victor and Nicole - Victor lording it over her again, Sami and
Brandon in bed, Lexie in bed saying this can't be labor, Shawn in an
interrogation room telling Belle that she has to let go for good this time
(her eyes swimming in tears) - black and white shots of Shawn's getting
I don't know if this was mentioned in Seal's magazine report but in Canada's
TV Guide there is an article on Peter Reckell. He says TPTB want the murder
storyline done with by the end of February. That leads me to believe that
we'll only see Shawn at an arraignment and then Larry will confess to
Colin's murder. Seems plausible because is supposed to figure out (just like
Jan and I did, right Jan???) once he hears Shawn's story, that the bullet
from the gun he shot didn't hit Colin.
Enjoy the show!
Pat caught the rest of the show so I'll only do parts...
I don't know where to start so let me just to the Shelle/Bope stuff...oops and J&J.
J&J scenes today were sweet and romantic and tender. Jen kept their wedding album and as they lay in bed they look at it and laugh. Jack kept her wedding ring (that she sent back to him)he wants to buy her a new one but wants her to wear this one so he knows she's his tonight...so sweet, so tender.
Bo....OMG...the way he takes down Larry...spazzy hands...I love Bo when he's the 'rebel' and today we saw it!!!
Shawn to the rescue...he's calling Mom...and Belle hears him..she's saying Shawn but he can't hear her...he breaks the window and climbs in seeing Hope..as he turns he sees Belle and says Belle what the....he checks Hope and yells she has a pulse...he goes to Belle...Belle tells him it's carbon monoxide...he breaks the rails and picks her up and carries her outside...the cop has Hope. He runs his hands through Belle's hair...touches her cheek...Belle tells him about Larry being there...he's upset but controls his temper...Belle tells him she loves him. Hope calls him and he goes to her and says he loves her..takes her hand...looks over at Belle and takes hers..fingers intertwined...he stands between them and looks slightly up. He asks why Belle's here..she should be in Paris..I was missing you like crazy and you're her in my house handcuffed to the stairs..I almost lost you..she tells him about Rex...he made her see that she reallys wanted to be here..with Shawn..even if he wanted to push her away..he says I don't want to I love you..I will love you forever....she puts her hand on his cheek and he melts into it...they are standing...Bo says he's sorry for Belle being involved...she says it's my fault..I wanted to be here for Shawn...I missed him..they are hugging...he says (I can't remember)then she say this feels so right..he says I love you..she nods..he says no I really love you...I promise I'll never leave you. Roman comes up and says I don't think you can keep that promise...Bo comes running over asking what Romans doing...Roman starts reading Shawn his rights...he then says for the murder of Colin Murphy...Hope's face is shock...as is Belle's. Shawn's face is stone cold..trying to be so strong.
Preview...in an interrogation room Shawn tells Belle she has to let go..this is forever..Belle's eyes are filled with tears..then it shows Shawn getting his mug shot.
Tuesday Feb. 25
don't know where to start...what a totally awesome show.
Shawn is brought into the station with Bope behind him...black t-shirt, hands in handcuffs behind his back. He says I murderered him as Belle comes
around the corner...she asks if that's why he pushed her away...they take him for booking...Belle asks a favor of Roman...Shawn gets fingerprinted, mug shots taken...Belle hugs Roman for the few minutes...she goes and sits down in the interrogation room...Shawn comes in and just stands there for a second looking at her. She tells him everything will be OK....he says Ikilled a man...she says I don't believe it...he says I did it...that's why I've been acting...I'm not good enough for you...she looks at him and sort
of half smiles...I knew you loved me...he says of course...I love you so much, that's the truth...your happiness is more important than mine...are you happy now...she says yes..we're together...I believe in you...we'll get through this together...he says this is my forever...he gets up to leave...they lock eyes. He has that hooded look going on...:::thud::: heleaves and Belle breaks down.
She tells Bope that Shawn thinks he'll be there forever...Hope says he's innocent...Belle says of course he is...Hope goes to see Shawn he tells her
he did it for his Dad...Roman asks Belle what Shawn says...She glares at him and says why does it matter you believe he's guilty (something along those
lines)Bo standing beside her gives a smirk...(IMO..he's proud of how feisty she is)...Mickey comes in and they go to talk to Shawn...Bo says it is not
the time to be noble....Shawn tells him about shooting Colin in the back...Bo gets a smile on his face...you didn't kill Colin...and I'll prove
it. Shawn sort of has a hopeful look in his eyes.
Be ready ladies...a great performance by JC/KS/PR/KA again today...and JC looks might good in that blue prison issue outfit...blue shirt...blue jeans
At the end of the show Victor says he has proof that Nicole killed Colin (now at this point Victor doesn't know Shawn has been arrested).
A great show...just what I wanted for a jailhouse scene with Shelle. And SDB shows his love for again today...but she isn't going anywhere.
Belle is a much better person than I am. She hugs Roman for letting her get to see Shawn. I’m sorry, I’m with Bo on this one. Roman put his badge before his family. I loved it when Bo told Roman that he would never forgive him for that. (Me either).
Sami and Brandon: Sami is having a nightmare about Brandon pushing her out of bed so that the mother of his child, Lexie could sleep with him. They talk about moving in together. Nicole, calls, blubbering drunk from the Cheating Heart, telling Brandon how happy she is to be married to Victor. Brandon goes to see her, Sami goes to the hospital while to get the next day off to move in with Brandon. (Voice-mail is down – LOL!) Lexie, who is suffering from Braxton-Hicks, is at the hospital. She overhears that Sami is moving. Sami loves telling her that she’s moving in with Brandon. The lab tech confronts Sami. She’s doing a backup of the files and she knows Sami changed the results of Lexie’s paternity test. She wants to know if Sami is going to tell Lexie what she did.
Victor and Nicole: More of him lording it over her about her being his possession. She’s drinking. He says the bar is closed and knocks all the decanters off the table. She goes to the bar. Later he sends Nico to get her – Brandon doesn’t want her to go with him. When she comes back to the mansion, Victor tells her that he has irrefutable evidence that she murdered Colin Murphy.
Abe/Roman: Roman goes on and on about how he didn’t want to have to arrest Shawn, but with his confession and physical evidence supporting his confession, he didn’t have any choice. He says the DA would have their badges for withholding evidence. Hope says who cares about badges, my son is in jail. Bo calls Mickey. Hope, Bo and Belle all say there is no way Shawn could be a murderer – Roman thinks he did it because he had all these opportunities to tell them and he didn’t. He also justifies arresting Shawn to Bo by saying it was killing Shawn, he had to turn to drugs to live with the guilt. Abe tells Roman he understands – after all, he arrested his own wife. He’s happy they were able to work that through – he hopes that Roman will be able to work things out with his family. Roman says Bo will never forgive me. Bo really lets him have it – he tells Roman that Shawn is going to have an arrest record for the rest of his life because Roman didn’t take the time to get all the facts before he arrested Shawn – he was more concerned about following the DA’s rules.
Bo and Hope are totally there for Shawn. Hope won’t go to the hospital to be treated. She knows that Shawn hasn’t been saying anything because of her – he didn’t think she could handle it. Belle comes around the corner and says ‘this is why you’ve been pushing me away.’
Not prison orange for Shawn, but prison blues (light blues) – that really showcase that 5 o’clock shadow. Belle tells him nothing has changed, she loves him and she knows that he loves her. He looks at and with a disbelieving laugh, repeats her ‘nothing’s changed’ phrase because he knows everything has changed. She gets him to say he loves her – her eyes fill with tears. He asks her if she’s happy now, she says yes because she understands what he was going through now. She understands that he was pushing her away because he didn’t want her hurt.
He tells her that he loves her more than his own life. He wants her to be happy and that can’t happen with him. She keeps telling him that she doesn’t believe he killed Colin, he says he did. He tells her that she has to let go, forever. She has her whole life in front of her and all he has is this for the rest of his life.
I absolutely love how Bo, Hope and Belle are sticking together in their belief that Shawn is not capable of cold-blooded murder. Hope goes to talk to him next. She asks him if he is protecting her. He says no, I killed Colin, I did it for Dad. She tells Bo that he has to talk to Shawn right now. Mickey and Bo go in. Bo tells Shawn that this is no time to be noble – tell us everything that happened that night. Shawn tells them that he saw Colin on the terrace, heard him say something like ‘Bo, get back into your place so that I can blow you away.’ Mickey says you did this because you were protecting your Dad. Shawn says (as he has another flashback of shooting Colin) that I didn’t have to kill him, but I pulled the trigger anyways. I shot him in the back, I took his life. Bo just smiles and said you didn’t kill him Shawn.
So I take it to mean that Colin wasn’t shot in the back – because that’s all Shawn said to him – so how else would Bo know immediately that he wasn’t the killer.
I absolutely loved how Shawn defined his love for Belle in this episode. Enjoy! (Okay, and he didn't look half bad in handcuffs and getted booked either - LOL!)
Wednesday Feb. 26
Well here goes...and I must say this is really hard because as I was watching the show I kept thinking about tomorrow's eppy...LOL.
I won't go into a lot of detail but I'll give you my thoughts on each...
Broe...I loved the fact that they wanted to rush home because of Shawn. I loved that Brady knows Shawn didn't do it. I loved that he tried to phone
Belle in Paris...I hated that he didn't know about what happened to Belle the previous night. Actually I didn't mind Broe at all today.
Brami....I thought it was sweet how Brandon just up and decided to move into Sami's apt. because Will didn't want to leave Lucas (hmmm.....empty
John/Tony/Marlena....OK there is definately more to this story...Rolf sayshe did take a sample from Tony but the way he said it leaves me with questions. You can tell that John is playing along only...and that look on Tony's face tells me he knows more than he's letting on.
Ressie...OK....can I slap her now. She calls Belle a twit...(who the hell does she think she is) Rex wants to know if she's more concerned about Shawn or herself because they don't share a secret anymore. They find the secret room and Rolf...now they have secrets.
Previews.....Cassie saying she'd never hurt Shawn...Belle looking very pretty saying I won't let you get away with it. Shawn/Bope/Belle as the DA
says they'll prosecute to the full extent of the law. Shawn saying he's a murdered. (be prepared for the eyes...ladies) Nicole as Henderson says Victor has gone to the cop station.
All in all not a bad show...but it's tomorrow's I'm waiting for.
This was a pretty difficult show to get all worked up over after the last few we’ve been treated to.
Brandon/Sami: She goes to his apartment and tells him it isn’t going to work between them and gives him the key back. He asks if she changed her mind. She says no but Will doesn’t want her to move. He doesn’t want to be away from his father. Brandon goes into his bedroom and slams the door shut. She’s telling him she won’t leave until they discuss this. He comes out with a suitcase and tells her that he’ll move in with her. There are some really cute, playful scenes between them as they pack up his place. Sami is very happy which generally spells doomsday – doesn’t it????
Brady/Chloe: You know what, their scenes were good today. She wakes up and she has a nosebleed. Brady notices but doesn’t let on until she’s ready to talk about it. She reflects on all the good things in her life and tells him she’s not afraid, but you can see the fear in her eyes when they are hugging. He bugs her about not listing him as one of the good things, she tells him that he is her life. They see the newspaper, both declare that Shawn is not a cold-blooded killer. Brady calls Belle in Paris but doesn’t get an answer. (Obviously doesn't know that Belle could have died the night before). He tells her to call Craig. They go back to Salem, notice that Craig’s car is gone and the suitcase that Nancy packed is missing. Craig calls and says Nancy has gone into labour. They’re so excited they head to the hospital. Okay, this angered me – all of a sudden who cares about Belle or Shawn? Geez, Brady!
John/Marlena/Tony/Rolf: I’m getting real tired real fast of this storyline. I’m sorry, Tony just doesn’t cut it as a villain, no matter how much he postures and lurks outside doors eavesdropping. Marlena tells Tony she doesn’t believe he’s the father, she’s certain she’s the mother. (John is out jogging). Tony calls Rolf on his ‘web phone’ and asks him about the twins. John enters the room. Marlena says he’s the doctor that delivered the babies. Rolf still won’t give anything up. He finally admits he took a ‘sample’ from Tony and then John grabs the phone and wants to know what he did to his wife. Rolf disconnects. Now Marlena believes. Both John and Tony are staking their claim on Marlena. She tells John that it doesn’t matter whether the twins are programmed to do evil, whether they’re good or bad, they are her children and she MUST have them with her. Tony believes he gains the upper hand when Marlena agrees to let him be with her when she tells the twins – John had said he would be with her.
Cassie/Rex: Who the f*** does that Alien Barbie think she is? Would you believe that she had the unmitigated gall to refer to Belle as a ‘twit’ today? EXCUSE ME! She’s all concerned about Shawn because he was the only friend they had – Rex says what about Belle – and that is when that, that, that, thing calls her a twit. Something I found very weird today – Rex talks about all the different types of people that commit murder and all the statistics about innocent people being convicted of crimes they didn’t commit. (Rolf is eavesdropping) Rex is doing research to see if he should help Shawn – but first he has to make sure Shawn isn’t a murderer. They made a point of saying you really don’t who your friends are and who you can trust. Something’s afoot. They don’t even trust Tony. They decide to search the mansion. They come across ‘Professor Putnam’ in the secret room. He spouts stuff about the research that Tony is financing and takes off. Rex tries to break into the computer system, but doesn’t. Cassie bugs him about that and he says he will get in eventually.
Preview: Cassie telling Belle that Shawn is everything to her, Belle telling her that she won’t let her get away with this. Henderson telling Nicole that Victor went to the police station – she thinks he’s turning her in. OMG – tortured Shawn as you here the DA spouting off about his confession and being prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Shawn saying I’m guilty, I’m a murderer. Belle standing strong, looking at him. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
Thursday Feb. 27
Jan's report (what I aspire to be able to do one day - LOL! - be succinct and to the point):
Here it comes:
First of all let me say the line to bitch-slap Cassie start in Vancouver.
Second let me say Pat will give the details I'll just give you my feelings...LOL.
I loved Belle today...the way she got mad at Shawn...she was po'd that Cassie knew and she let Shawn know it...he kept trying to tell her it wasn't
like that but she wasn't listening and he was at somewhat of a disadvantage...he was handcuffed (and looking mighty fine might I add) And I loved Belle facing off with Cassie...she stood toe to toe with her (if it had been me that girl would have been slapped across the face) Cassie's whole...Shawn needs me...I'm the only one he needs...she is so delusional...she doesn't have a clue...but Belle does...this girl was a firecracker today and personally I thought it was about time. She is
absolutely floored at the arraignment when Mickey says SDB wants to plead guilty.
Bo/Hope doing everything they can to convince Shawn that he didn't do it...even Abe was trying. SDB is determined that he did...now I think part of it is...he's trying to prove that he will take responsibility and partly that he can't believe he went through these last months believing he killed
someone when he didn't...does that make sense.
Loved the J&J scenes today.
Didn't mind the Victor/Nicole scenes as much today either...we get a full flashback of what happens...and Victor can't believe Nicole would let his grandson take the fall.
At the arraignment Shawn/Caroline look away from Roman.
Now...Belle looked absolutely gorgeous in the outfit she had on...short beige skirt, matching jacket and blue t-shirt underneath. (was I way off
with jeans...LOL) Shawn well he looks mouthwatering today..his eyes were just:::thud:::
The preview for tomorrow...Belle yelling Shawn no and him turning around to look at her...tells me that's when he changes his mind!!!
The show is......what can I say...OMG....it is awesome. Terri...Bo in a red shirt...:::thud:::
Pat's overly detailed report:
A few things I want to say right off the start. I was so wrong about Belle’s outfit. She’s wearing a long sleeved fitted shirt, coloured blouse underneath, short skirt in a matching tan colour with a scalloped hem. Gorgeous.
Before I get into details of the show, I want to say that Cassie is totally insane. She’s completely delusional!!! As I said when I watched her at that birthday party Phillip threw for Belle – she is a major, major threat to Belle’s physical well-being.
From everything shown today, unless Nicole is as mistaken as Shawn – she is the killer. She had the gun, she picked up the shell casings (2) as well. One of them had BO on it. She didn’t mean to kill him, it was an accident. She told Victor (flashback shown) that she seen him lying on terrace and picked up the gun. Colin got up and started coming towards her. He wanted the gun, she wanted a promise that the blackmail would stop. He tried to get the gun away from him, there was a struggle and the gun went off. He fell to the ground with a bullet in his gut. (Everything of her confession fits with the medical examiner’s report). All I can say – in the flashback she was wearing her veil – attached to a hat or something with her face covered in some kind of netting – she’s damn lucky that the veil ripped – that look did nothing for her. She gives Victor the gun and the shell casings. Later she’s looking for him and Henderson says he’s gone to the police station. Victor asking to see one of the prisoners, Larry Welch.
Roman and Kate: Roman at the Cheating Heart feeling sorry for himself. Kate angry at him for not coming to her when he was feeling down. She tells him that even if Shawn is convicted of murder, Bo will forgive him. HAH! I don’t think so. He tells her his mom and pop are angry with him. He tells this story how his pop was really sick when he was 17 and he had to become the father figure and Bo was always a maverick. He says he’s always been a by the book kind of guy. She tells him she isn’t. She’s shocked when he says if Sami had been the murderer, he would have arrested her. They go to the arraignment together (Kate has to talk him into going). Caroline and Shawn, Sr. turn away from him when they see him.
Jack/Jen/Hope/DA/Abe: Hope is upset with the article, Caroline upset with all the calls coming to the pub. Hope says she’s not speaking to the press, Jen says not even me. Hope is upset with the article in the Spectator. Jennifer says they were just doing their job – the story is in every paper. Hope forgives her and wants to talk about Jack and Jen. Jen shows her the ring – Hope is genuinely happy for them. Jack asks Abe for a statement. Abe says no comment. The DA comes in and gets on his soapbox, “Shawn Douglas Brady confessed to murder. He will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. No special favours because his last name is Brady.” He makes a threat that if Bo impedes the investigation any further he’ll make sure father and son have adjoining cells at Statesville. Jack and Jen share some sweet moments alone at the pub.
Belle and Shawn: They bring him into the visiting room backwards (don’t ask me why – maybe it’s to showcase those hands in cuffs???). Belle asks the guard to take the cuffs off, he says no, but he leaves them alone in the room. She asks if he any sleep, he says no, my Dad kept me up all night questioning me. She asks him ‘what was he thinking’. He looks confused. She says not about the shooting but why didn’t he tell his dad or mom or her, instead of going through it all alone. He says he wasn’t exactly alone. He tells her Cassie knew. She gets angry and says you told Cassie before me. He says I didn’t tell her, she seen me shoot Colin and then she told me I couldn’t tell anyone because I would them accessories. She’s so angry that she tells him she has to leave.
Cassie/Belle/Rex: She sees Cassie in the hallway and goes up to her and asks her how she could do that to her. Cassie tells her not to yell in face. Belle says you haven’t seen me yell yet. (That smirk on Cassie’s face – oh what I’d like to do that…that…thing – argh!) Rex tries to calm Belle down. Belle calls Cassie a manipulative liar and tells her she’s on to her. Belle says you only made things worse for Shawn, how can you not see that? Cassie says she would never hurt Shawn, he means everything to her. She says that all Cassie cared about was keeping this ‘romantic’ little secret between her and Shawn.
Belle tells her ever since the night they found they them, she’s been making a fool of herself around Shawn. Cassie says he kissed me and it was magical. Belle says that was mouth to mouth. She tells Cassie that Shawn could go to prison for the rest of his life and it would all be her fault. She will make her pay for what she’s done. Rex tells Cassie to be quiet when she starts talking about how she was there that night – tells her Captain Brady would arrest her for aiding and abetting. Cassie vows to do everything she has to help Shawn. She tells Belle she’s going to the arraignment even though Belle tells her she doesn’t belong there. Cassie insists on going because she is the only one that Shawn needs. He needs her and only her. YIKES!
Belle talks to Mickey – he tells her that Shawn is determined to plead guilty, if he does, there’s nothing he can do for him.
Abe/Bo/Shawn/Hope: Abe walks in to question Shawn, Mickey says not without his lawyer present. Shawn tells Mickey he doesn’t want him there, he did it, he’s already confessed, Abe can ask him anything he wants. He tells Mickey you don’t want to believe I did it because your family. Bo comes in and asks where Mickey is when he sees Abe there. Shawn says I don’t want him here. Bo makes him tell him about the shooting all over again. I think they added some new flashbacks in here because during the struggle, you can plainly see that it’s a stud from the tuxedo that falls to the ground. Abe listens and sees I didn’t kill him and Bo says, that’s what I’ve been trying to tell him. Bo told Shawn he had just been to Victor’s. From what Shawn told him and both Abe and Bo believe Shawn’s story – Bo believes that he missed. The trajectory of the bullet path shows that the bullet would have ended up in the lake. Bo tells Shawn that the M.E.’s report states that Colin was killed by a bullet in the gut shot at close range.
(Hope comes in somewhere during the exchange.) Even with all this evidence, Shawn says you only see what you want to see. He says he doesn’t know where the bullet hit, he was in shock, it could have hit him in the stomach and he could have been close enough to him. Bo says did you see a bullet wound. Shawn says I was in shock, I walked closer to him, seen that he was dead, dropped the gun and left him. Bo says, it’s his theory that Colin was just pretending that he had been hit. He tells Shawn that the police never found a gun – the real killer still has it. Shawn gets a strange look on his face. (Don’t know if he’s thinking about changing his plea or not at this point).
Preview: Brandon asking Nicole what Victor’s done to her, Sami and Lucas having a knockdown drag out fight, and Mickey saying Shawn pleads guilty and Belle jumping up saying “Shawn, you can’t do this.” Shawn turning and looking at her.
Great show! Man that Shawn is one stubborn dude though! THUD ALERTS: Those killer eyes on the son and that red shirt and intense look on Dad's face - look out!
Friday Feb. 28
First of I'll let's talk Lumi. I have always loved these two and today reminded me why. They are at each other from start to finish. I loved
it...a little spice is just what was needed.
Brandon/Nicole...Nicole had the funniest line of the day. Sami dragging Brandon by his anatomy. Nicole really wants to tell someone but she doesn't know how to go about it. I felt a little sorry for her today but Ari is doing a great job. I also liked the scene at the end with Lucas/Nicole.
Victor is going to get Larry to confess....again I enjoyed their scenes today.
The best for last....Belle again telling Cassie that she is not wanted. Shawn walking into court looking right at Belle. Those eyes bore into her today. The outburst by Belle was great...she just let it all out...she loves him...they can be together...I'm sorry I walked out on you...pleading with him to say not guilty...and the whole time he's staring straight at her...I loved that Jen/Caroline went with her...again so telling. I loved how he looked at his parents and then plead not guilty..almost a look of
relief on his face...the smirk with the DA was talking about him being a flight risk....the disappointment when bail was denied. I loved how excited Belle was that he plead innocent...her telling Cassie that she had to be careful with her testimony. I loved how Belle ran into him...huggin him as he melted into her...the way he told her not to cry...and his voice when he told his parents to take care of Belle for him. And how Hope took her into her arms. I loved the scenes between them today.
I loved Bo/Roman and Bo's tirade with the DA.
Now the question...Pat what was the look between Shawn and Cassie??? It almost looked like he was pissed at her.
Enjoy the show....it was another wonderful one.
There’s no doubt in my mind after seeing this episode that Belle and Shawn are being moved into more adult storylines. When Shawn values her words above those of his parents and other family members there can be no doubt that they are considered a couple in the true adult sense of the word. FINALLY!
Brandon/Sami/Nicole/Lucas: Sami takes great pleasure in telling Nicole that Brandon has moved in with her. Nicole’s upset and tells Brandon he’s thinking with his anatomy and Lucas comes up and pipes up that he’s not happy about it either. Nicole and Brandon talk in the hallway, Sami and Lucas in the apartment. Lucas lays down the law and tells Sami that Will must never refer to Brandon as Dad. Only he goes to any school events, meetings concerning Will, not Brandon. He threatens her with the fact that if he sued for full custody, Will would be able to speak on his own behalf and he would tell the judge that he wanted to live with his Dad. He taunts her about her history with men, how desperate and needy she is and that Brandon only likes her cleavage and that he would never marry her.
Brandon is concerned about Nicole. She doesn’t let on about what’s really troubling her. She tells him Victor was upset with her going to the Cheating Heart – and he was right. She has to grow up, she shouldn’t be out drinking in sleazy bars and flirting with the bartender anymore. She’s waiting for the elevator when Lucas comes out. She asks him for a coin, he gives her a penny telling her that’s all she’s worth. She flips it and says Heads, I stay, Tails, I run. Its Heads, she’s says I’m going to turn myself in. Lucas asks her into what? As the elevator door is closing he asks for his penny back – LOL! Lucas, are you really that hard up!
Lexie/Abe: Some nice scenes between them today. It’s nice to see Abe so happy and Lexie happy to be with him. After Lexie leaves, a cop comes in and tells Abe that Larry Welch has a visitor, Victor Kirakis.
Larry/Victor: Larry says he senses ‘déjà vu’ when he sees Victor there. Victor shows him the shell casing with ‘BO’ written on it and tells him he already figured out that Larry had put a hit on Bo. Victor wants to know what went wrong. Larry says his incompetent hit man allowed himself to be shot and killed by someone else. He’s upset that Shawn D is stealing his headlines – Oh Larry! Victor says the list of crimes he’s credited with is very long and impressive but one is missing. Larry says he’s not putting himself on death row to get Shawn D off. Victor tells him he will or he’s a dead man. He tells him you know I can arrange it, even if you’re in prison. At the end, Victor asks him if he his story straight, Larry says yeah, I got it all. Abe asks Victor what he’s doing there. He’s says I’m just here to see that the man who tried to kill my son’s wife is really behind bars and going to be punished.
Courtroom: Jack, Jen, Caroline and Shawn, Sr., Ressie, Roman, Kate, Mickey, Shawn, Belle, Judge and that prick (oops, sorry) the DA. In the corridor, Bo is telling Shawn that he has to retract his confession. He has to plead Not Guilty. Hope is begging him as well. Bo keeps telling him he didn’t do it. They go into the courtroom – now this was really weird. Usually the prisoner is brought in from a side corridor, not Shawn. He was brought in through the same doors everyone else used to come in. Camera is panning showing him walking and looking at the people sitting there. When he gets to the table with Mickey, he stays turned looking at Belle until the judge comes in. Before Shawn comes in, Shawn, Sr. and Caroline throw a very disgusted look Roman’s way. Roman says I didn’t have a choice, I have to uphold the law, no matter what. Shawn, Sr. tells him that family should always come first and he had turned his back on his family.
The judge asks how he pleads after the charges are read – long pause, commercials, yada, yada, before it comes back to the courtroom. Mickey tells him to change his mind, Shawn has another flashback of shooting Colin, he tells Mickey he killed him he can’t plead Not Guilty. Mickey stands up and says that his client pleads Guilty. Belle jumps up and says “No, Shawn. You can’t do this.” He turns to her and their eyes are locked on one another. She tells him he couldn’t have done this. She says I love you and we have to be together. She tells him she’s sorry she got angrier with him earlier. She repeats that she loves him and says Please Shawn.” She gets thrown out of court, tears streaming down her face as Shawn watches. Caroline and Jennifer run out after her.
The judge asks for the plea again and Shawn looks at his Mom and Dad for a long time, judge is losing patience, Shawn stands up and says, I’ve changed my mind, I plead Not Guilty. Rex drags Cassie out of the courtroom to tell Belle. She doesn’t want to go with him, she wants to stay there for Shawn. (I think she was still a little ticked because Belle had told her earlier that Shawn didn’t need her, he needed his parents and her.) Caroline is hugging Belle. Belle is saying that she wishes she could do something for him – Rex says you already did, Shawn pleaded Not Guilty. Belle is so happy she hugs Rex. Jen and Caroline go back into the court.
Belle then tells Cassie that Shawn is going to need her help. She says she’s known him all his life and there’s no way he could ever kill anyone in cold blood. It had to have been an accident and that Cassie is going to have to be very careful when she gives testimony. She tells her that she can’t say anything that would incriminate Shawn.
Back inside, bail hearing. Carson says because Shawn is a cold- blooded killer who is a danger to the community, and because of the preferential treatment he receives from the police, he’s a flight risk and because of his over-dose on drugs, he’s also a danger to himself, bail should be denied. Bo is very angry and yells at the DA. The Judge and Hope get him to sit down and be quiet. Shawn is held over without bail. Carson says the only visitor he’s allowing Shawn is his lawyer, no mommy and daddy and no girlfriend. Bo is absolutely furious – man I love to see this man angry. THUD!!! He yells at Carson saying you can’t do this to my son. Carson sneers at him and says, he’s not a Brady now, he’s just another common criminal. Bo grabs him and starts jerking him around – Roman and company pull him off.
Bo turns his anger on Roman. He says it’s your fault Shawn’s in jail. Roman spouts off his litany about the law and overhearing the confession and he didn’t have a choice – pompous a—hole! Bo says if you would have just talked to him before you arrested him you would have known he couldn’t have done it. Roman asks him what he means. He says Shawn says he shot him in the back and Bo says you know from the M.E.’s report that he was shot in the stomach. Roman says that’s great, he didn’t do it – he’ll get off. Bo just looks at him as if to stay, you stupid… he throws it back in Roman’s face that if it wasn’t for him, Shawn wouldn’t be facing a trial.
Roman offers his help in clearing Shawn. Bo is turning him down until Hope steps in. She tells Roman that she doesn’t like the way he handled the situation with her son, but they will take help anywhere they can get it.
Belle comes running back in and wraps her arms around Shawn and tells him she loves him again. She says everything will be okay now that he’s fighting for himself. He looks up and sees Cassie and just closes his eyes and lays his cheek against Belle’s. Cassie turns and walks out of the courtroom. As they’re taking him out of the courtroom, he turns back to them and says “I love you all more than ever. Mom, Dad look after Belle for me.” Belle has tears in her eyes as Bo and Hope promise him they will. Hope wraps her arm around Belle.
Sigh! Such a good show!
Preview: Roman asking Bo if he’s going to talk to him, Bo answering ‘Go to hell’ and then telling Hope he doesn’t know what angers him more, Shawn being in prison or Roman being the one responsible for it. Marlena telling Ressie that she is their mother and Tony saying and I am your father.
