A few years ago, I'dve suggested that Chloe's behaviour was due to either bad meds or a doppelganger. But this is Days in 2013, so that won't work. I just don't buy her story of why she's gone and flipped so much this past year.

 

Any bright ideas there?

 

PS: loving the banner this month. :D

Im officially on the over Nick bandwagon. Love Blake but the character just works my nerves

 

Why isn't Sonny throwing what Gabby did In his face? He should call his bluff. Threatened to tell the cops about Gabby if he tells them about Will

 

Parker was super cute today. He was more animated than he's ever been

I think Sonny's worried about Chad ending up in jail. That MAY be what's holding him back, but there may be more, who knows.

that's why I said call his bluff. Play hard ball with Nick, bc ultimately Nick doesn't want Gabby in jail. Sonny should act like he doesn't care what happens to Chad as long as Will is safe and they raise the child together. That's a trump card he could use to shut Nick down

The baby story is good, Nick is slime and I can't wait to see what happens. I wish that EJ somehow got a gag order drawn up and replaced the papers and makes Nick sign them too. Didn't EJ leave the room with the papers and make a call? That would be gold. If he could suppress everything, the way Gabi's crime has been suppressed. It is the only reason EJ is bending over in all this and making it happen so quickly. Normally EJ wouldn't be so calm and wouldn't be so willing to go ahead so quickly.
 
As far as Sonny saying anything, what evidence does he have? Actually I wasn't watching at the time, did Chad actually witness what happened, would Melanie be needed to testify to make any charges stick? Even if criminal charges weren't laid and it came out in custodial court all it means is that both Will and Gabi could loose the baby and Nick has more reason to go after Will, and the baby ends up in foster care. Sonny can't call Nick's bluff, because Sonny is insignificant to Nick and means nothing. He also won't believe that Sonny would ask Chad to testify and Sonny can't be sure Chad would testify. All Sonny has is hearsay.

Blake Berris/Nick is the best thing on the show right now.  It was 5 against 1 today and he took all of them on.  Really liking this storyline.

I was explaining to my non soap watching friends that watched with me today that Sami AND Will have both shot EJ. I couldn't help but laugh when my friend asked why EJ was on their side.

He doesn't want to risk getting shot again?

LOL.

 

I loved Nick wondering if EJ was going to hire a hit man. Dude. Sami, Will, EJ and Lucas have all tried to kill people and EJ has succeeded. Sleep with one eye open, Fallon.

 

This show is AMAZING. I look forward to watching this daily more than I do my primetime dramas right now, because everything is firing (don't like Dan/Jen, but the writing is so good that I can now stomach 60% of it) and this is the Days I fell in love with. Using younger characters, respecting history, crackling dialogue and a VILLAIN. People wonder why Days' ratings are up? It's Nick. People came to Days for the DiMeras, for Victor, for Vivian, for Kristen and their favorite characters struggling to best them. I've been saying for ages this show needs a real villain again and we finally have one and Nick is the best damn villain I've seen on this show in years. (Vivian's return up until her escaping from the sarcophagus was well done too, but it got goofy)

 

I also love how the Kristen storyline is taking different turns. She's a complicated villainess now and they're keeping us in a holding pattern until she finally lets those fangs out. I think with Stefano returning, we'll finally be getting back to the Days I started with -- families interacting with one another and overcoming the odds. Back in the 90s we had Stefano, Victor, Kate, Kristen, Sami, Peter, Franco, etc. all up to no good. I think we're inching back there again.

 

Another thing the show is doing well for me now is romances. I'm buying all the romances on the show now actually, even liking the slow burn of Abby/Cameron. I thiiiiink if Daniel were any other character I'd like his pairing with Jen too, but he's not, so whatever.

Watched Thursday and Friday's episodes back to back!  Glad it seems others are liking the show as much I am.  Will Will sign the papers?  How will Gabi and Rafe react when they find out Nick has tried to do this?  It was good writing to keep them oblivious to all this, as they would never stand for it.  I can see Nick working his magic on Gabi to get her to agree that it was about making it "her choice" "after things have settled down" like he was saying in her hospital room, if it was already a done deal -- but if Gabi were in the room she wouldn't have been able to do that to Will.

 

I think the baby story is definitely working, but I wouldn't say Nick is a villain.  What makes him so compelling to me is that yes he's masterfully doing all these things we don't want him to do, like try to keep Will out of his daughter's life, but at the same time he actually has really great points about the dysfunction of Will's family.  Nick doesn't intend harm to anyone.  That's how I would define a villain -- someone intending harm.  A villain wouldn't even have apologized to Sami after the slap for using that word to describe her.  A villain wouldn't have offered to take over at the pub so Victor and Caroline could talk on Valentine's Day. 

 

Agree about liking the slow but steady buildup for Cameron and Abigail.  Do doctors usually change in supply closets though?  LOL.

 

Jennifer proposed a break to Daniel but Daniel hasn't responded yet.  I think it was good that Abigail felt bad about resorting to violence, and the show brought the police in to show the seriousness of violence, though yes Chloe did use cruel tactics.  I also think part of Abigail and Jennifer may agree that they are moving on too soon from Jack; Chloe may have gotten to them a little bit though they won't admit it.

 

Abe has now been on four days in a row, though still not doing much.

 

So Eric is going to be involved in ministry with the guy who tried to terrorize Nick in prison .. Way to tie stories together!  Love it.  I wonder what Nicole is going to do next about her feelings.  She seems to have a plan for how to get rid of them.  I liked her talk with Sister Margaret leading her to the conclusion that Eric wouldn't have judged her, but he is also so devoted to the church now that he wouldn't even see those feelings. 

 

Funny how Hope left for work after she said she would stay with Gabi until Nick returned.  Glad we saw Eric visiting Gabi, although it was shot without Gabi there.

 

I wonder why Will lied to his dad that he didn't tell Sonny about shooting EJ and Sonny just found out when Nick came by -- unless the secret Will told Sonny during the scene we didn't see really was something else.  The show may still be trying to keep us guessing. 

 

EJ didn't leave the room with the custody papers; he left the room before that.  But I do think his leaving the room to make a call or something must have been important in some way.  I think Sami gave up a little too easily on trying to get EJ to admit what Gabi did and to use that as leverage.  Sami doesn't care much about Chad, he would just be collateral damage.  She could also say that they would get Chad the best lawyer they could, and he wouldn't necessarily go to jail.  I agree with whoever said Sonny could try to bluff with Nick too.  Poor Gabi though, if her fate is used like that ... I don't think Will would agree to it. 

 

I like that Will feels this all started from Sami pushing for the paternity test, because while Nick has always had full custody in the back of his mind, his mind wasn't made up until indeed that paternity test stuff and Gabi's medical scare pushed him to it.  Will still sees Nick's side in all of this, as he told his dad, and that's what makes Will such a rootable character who you know really wants the best for his family and for his daughter.  It's also what gives us some dramatic tension to Friday's cliffhanger, even if it's unlikely Will will sign the papers ...

Isn't Nick's grandfather Alex Marshall? I'm sure he'd be proud and I say that in a complimentary way to the character.

Can you say more about Alex Marshall?  His wikipedia entry is really short.  I did see he was a conman and he went to jail.

 

That reminds me, it was a nice touch to show Hope cottoning on to how Nick had been having nightmares about prison.  I see more now why she is so invested in him, beyond just him being family.  I didn't know Hope had been "inside" before in prison too.

Yes Hope was in prison as she took pills, which made her commit crimes. Eventually they put her back on the police force, which made no sense, but I digress.
