Days of Our
Lives in Review
Week of July 22, 2002
By Lindsay Clark
At the docks a gang called “The Aliens”
terrorize the real aliens. Billie and Roman show up and rain on their
parade. They arrest the gang. Later, Roman makes a visit to Belle
and Shawn to tell them that the string of break-ins, and all the weird
stuff going on is due to a gang called the aliens, not actual aliens.
Of course, Belle refuses to believe it. Shawn, on the other hand
gives right into it, and is convinced that the aliens were trying to
deceive them. He them goes down to the docks and starts a fight with
Rex. The aliens jump in the water, and Belle and Shawn jump in after
them and save them. Who are these aliens? I’m kind of thinking they
are a result of Rolf. I definitely think they have a motive for
wanting Belle and Shawn. They actually give me the creeps! Hope
tries to deal with the fact that Billie is back. She tries to tell Bo
that Billie has an ulterior motive for being back in Salem. Bo
refuses to believe that. Is he dumb or what? I love Bo and all, but
he’s a detective he should be onto Billie. Hope later makes a visit
to the station to confront Billie. She basically tells Billie that
her and Bo are forever. Go Hope! After Hope leaves, Billie speaks to
someone on the phone and says, “They’ve bought into my new career.
Hope won’t be a problem.” Could she be speaking to Larry Welch?
That’s kind of what I’m thinking. Meanwhile, at the DiMera mansion,
everyone is extremely surprised by the appearance of Sami, and Lexi
gives Tony hell for it. Brandon talks to Sami and warns her not to
hang out with Tony. Sami, being her usual dumb self, doesn’t want to
hear it. She then admits to him that she’s using Tony to make him
jealous, because she realized that she loves him. They then have a
passionate kiss while Lexie looks on very angry. Brandon just gets
all the winners, hah? Bo shows up at the dinner party to confront
Tony about the invite to the will reading. He is also extremely
confused when he sees John being nice to Tony. John explains to Bo
that it is just a ploy to find out the truth. Later, they wander off
together and find a huge wooden box with the phoenix symbol on it. Of
course, Tony walks in on them and is not very pleased.
Shawn, Carolyn, Bo,
Hope, John, Marlena, Abe, Brandon, Celeste, Roman, Sami, and Kate
(what is her connection to Stefano) all show up for Stefano’s memorial
service. While listening to the service, each person reminisces about
things that Stefano did to him or her. After the memorial, Brandon,
Sami, and Abe had to leave because they weren’t invited to the will
reading. Sami, being the conniving little witch that she is, crashes
her car on purpose so Brandon will rescue her. And of course, he
does. Abe then shows up to help as well, and he and Brandon start
fighting. Brandon almost stabs Abe, but Sami intervenes. Brandon is
kind of a psycho! Anyway, Brandon catches on to Sami’s car crash plan
and leaves. Poor Sami!
Right before the will is
read, Colin shows up surprising everyone. The executer reads the
To Kate: kipper fillets
(What the hell are kipper fillets?)
To Celeste: paper
people chain that reads: “We must reclaim our youth, reclaim our
To Roman: statue of a
To Shawn: wooden box
with a ship in it. He throws the ship saying it’s a bomb. It turns
out being nothing, but when he threw it a little baby doll fell out of
it, and Shawn looked at Colin. I think Shawn has a lot of secrets
that need to be revealed.
To Hope: scarf, which
at first she thinks is a noose. Later, she figures out that it is a
blindfold because Stefano’s message was “Keep your eyes open, despite
To Marlena: pillow with
a sentence written in French on it. When translated into English it
reads “A sleeping beauty in the wood.”
To John: chess set.
When he gets home he realizes that the queen is missing. Stefano used
to refer to Marlena as queen.
To Lexie: the DiMera
crest, which has a letter to Lexi from Stefano in it.
To Tony: gigantic model
of the DiMera mansion. Later, when Tony is alone, he puts his hand
inside the house and finds the queen piece to the chess set. He
begins gazing at it, and the face of it turns into Marlena’s face.
Marlena becomes very frightened over
everything that happened at the will reading. I’m getting a sense
that something bad could happen to her over the next couple of
months. Hope gets news from Glen that J.T. needs surgery. She
decides to take Zack to Iowa to be there for J.T. This situation fits
right into Billie’s plans. She’s becoming evil. What happened to the
The best part of this week was definitely the will reading.
It really was spooky. The little gifts that each person was
given, and their reactions were excellent. There are so many
hidden secrets that need to come out and I think they’re going to
start unfolding soon.
