Alliances, Fights, Truths, and Lies
(and it's not all from Lucas and Sami)
Week of July 28 - August 1
Every Dog Has Its Day In Court
From the beginning we knew that Cassie's solicitation charges were
ridiculous. That didn't change the fact that Roman charged her
with them. Then, when the court date came around, he decided to
testify in her favor.
What type of case is that really? You charge someone with a crime
and then you testify on her behalf? You think maybe his
subconscious told him to save his daughter?
The look on Cassie and Rex's faces when Sami not only talked to
them, but stunned them by repeating their secret to them, was
priceless. Their expressions got even better when Sami reveled
that Rex had spilled the beans when he thought she was asleep.
They then proceeded to make threats back and forth until Sami
sided with Rex at the DiMera mansion. As she told him, "In other
words, I'm with you as long as it's good for me."
What is Sami planning? Is she planning on marrying Tony like she
told the twins? Or is she trying to make her feelings
for/daydreams of Lucas disappear?
My favorite moment between Sami and the twins would have been when
Sami asked Cassie, "Have you ever had your ass kicked?" before
lunging towards her.
After all the difficulties those two have had, I can understand
why it's so hard for them to trust each other and get along, but
with the recent daydreams you'd think they'd be awkward around
No, instead they're still fighting, the only difference being
they're not doing it as often.
When Lucas defended Sami to both Victor and his mom and then
invited her for lunch, I guess it was a nice start for a
It seemed for a second at the lunch, that they'd gone back to
being friends, tag teaming Brady and Nicole at the Blue Note and
scheming at the table. How great would it be if the writers made
this permanent? It'd be about time. Eight years of waiting is too
Bump in the road
Supercouples are suppose to be, well, super. John and Marlena
have a very unique history together. Though they've had their
disagreements, none have been as big as they have been about Tony.
First Marlena wants Tony safe and John doesn't, then John wants
Tony safe and Marlena doesn't. I think it would be better for
those two if the subject of Tony never entered their thoughts
That's What Friends Are For
How nice of Brady to fire that bartender that recognized Nicole as
Locker Room Lolita. Brady has been there through her nightmares,
her fights with Victor, and even after finding out her past.
Rumors have been spreading that the off-screen couple would become
on-screen, but the ABC reps and the actors themselves deny those
Even though they deny it, the material that makes it on air seems
to be proving otherwise. Could the writers be telling the truth or
are they trying to fool us?
Cassie and Philip have been getting along rather well lately. He
gave her a bunny, she let him through her tough outer shell and
see the sensitive, vulnerable person she really is.
With her keen senses, Cassie has noticed that her half-bro is in
love with Belle. That seems to be fine with her since,
throughout everything that's happened, she's still after Shawn.
Are the siblings going to be teaming up to separate the two future
supercouples? Philip seems reluctant, but Cassie knows the buttons
to push and manipulate things to her advantage.
She reminds me of young Sami, who she was when she first arrived
in Salem. Maybe manipulation runs in the family? After all, Kate
is her mother and Sami is her sis.
Well that my opinion for this week of life in Salem. Until the
next exciting week in Salem, I'm signing off .
