Another Day In Salem, Illinois
guests that appear on Jack and Jennifer’s show have a fun time with
the duo, however Tuesday’s guest tried to outsmart the pair and ended
up outsmarted by Jack.
started to criticize Jack’s personality for, as she put it, being
intimidated by independent women, he decided to play along not just sit
there and argue with her. Instead of fighting her perception of him,
he made up a sexual problem between himself and Jennifer, then with
the help of one of her “techniques,” he humiliated her as Jennifer
joined in on the fun. Matthew Ashford and Melissa Reeves' performances
made me laugh my pants off.
The teen scene
is right now in and out of storylines, accessories as one might have
Rex and Mimi
seem to be getting along greatly as a couple, but Internet buzz says
TPTB play to split them apart. If it is true, signs of the split are
starting to appear already. During one of Rex’s headaches, as Mimi
kneeled by his bedside trying to find a way to make it go away, Rex
told her more or less to back off. She did, grabbing her clothes and
heading for the door, though Rex stopped her from leaving. Maybe it
was just the headache talking.
in the Marines sure has straighten the boy out. When he left Salem
(then played by Jay Kenneth Johnson), Philip was a spoiled brat
through and through. Now, he’s an ISA agent righting the wrongs in
Salem, falling for the taken best friend he grew up with. Since
Philip’s been back, Belle has ended up naked- twice- with him naked
beside her. Guess the love he felt for Chloe wasn’t true love after
all . Philip and Belle would make a cute couple, hopefully the writer
give them a chance. After all, this is Salem and first love isn’t
lasting love, Shawn and Belle could be over before you blink your
learned nothing from her (ridiculous) arrest for solicitation? Her
need to get laid has gotten her into sticky situations; being arrested
and almost sleeping with her half-brother. You’d think after that,
she’d hold off on losing her virginity, but not the case. Now she’d
working at Echelon, a cheesy strip-like joint owned by her “father”,
as a hostess ogled by every guy that enters. Perfect place for an
upper-class elitist to work, right? Writer, just have her lose her
virginity already or give her medication to tranquilize her horniness.
Only one thing
to say about Shawn and Belle’s relationship, perfect. So trusting of
each other and forgiving; I'd guess you’d have to be after everything
they went through their in high school (Shawn claiming to be the
father of Jan’s baby after her rape). The thing that sells me most on
this couple though is their independence from the pressures of their
peers. I admire the fact that both have decided to abstain from sex
until they’re ready and not just do it because everyone else is. I’m
glad they don’t let their classmates talk them into sex just because-
maybe they could help Cassie understand that concept.
and A Romance?
Larry Welch out of jail so the two could get rid of her husband and
make her a very rich (and happy) widow. They attempted to shoot Victor
once and instead Brady got hit instead.
Now it seems
that Nicole is fallen for Brady. Rumors had been flying that
producers were going to make the off-screen couples’ chemistry jump
onto the screen. Is that what’s happening? Is it possible that Nicole
has found love again after Eric and Austin?
honesty, just because they have chemistry off the screen doesn’t mean
they will on screen. Don’t get me wrong, I think Nicole and Brady
would make a interesting couple, but so far I've seen nothing on my
television set. Maybe writers haven’t gotten to it yet- maybe?
Sami is a
Four-Letter Word, So Is Hate... And Love
After years of
fighting with Lucas and trying to win over (insert a guy’s name here)
with crazy schemes, the writers seem to be steering Sami towards a romance
with someone just like herself, Lucas. Though both deny it, they’re
alike in many ways; good at being bad and bad at being good.
Fans have been
begging for the pair to hook up since almost ten years ago, it looks
like writer are finally listening to them. I personally love the
couple fascinates me! The love/hate relationship they share had me
hooked on them since I discovered the show three years ago. I
instantly I went to my computer at the end of the episode and looked
up their history. They had an interesting beginning, a wonderful and
understanding friendship, a inevitable fallout due to their obsessions
with others, playful bantering and now- a chance at love. With each
other, of course.
The only bad
thing, though, is the fact that writers are bringing Tony into the
mix. Tony is a DiMera and that spells trouble. Lucas has been
jealous of the attention Tony is displaying towards Sami and even
had fantasies of making love to her. Monday (July 21st) he admits to
Maggie that he may have feelings for Sami. Is it finally going to
happen between the former enemies?
Until the next
exciting week in Salem, I’m signing off .
