Days Opinion by
Frankly Nicole, I donít give a damn!
How funny was Victorís tribute to Ret Butler classic
Gone With the Wind line? It was a very still atmosphere when Nicole
heard Victorís voice as she turned to see her back from the dead
husband. At least Nicole wonít be going to jail for what she had
attempted to do to Victor. It will be very amusing to see just what in
fact Nicole will do since she is out of her mansion and her money.
My one complaint is that the bank notified Brady when Nicole
transferred money out of her account. I say her account, because she
is the widow of Victor or so she thought at the time. The bank had no
right to call Brady unless he is the one in charge of the finances.
Hopefully now Nicole will wise up and see what a loser Brady is and
she can move on to other endeavors. With the return of Austin in a few
weeks could Nicole and Austin continue their friendship that they were
just starting to have before he left.
Here is the last buzz going around the Internet at the
moment, and it does make sense and I really like this idea to a point,
but let me give a brief background. Back in the late70ís and early
80ís Salem was introduced to Marlenaís twin sister Samantha, who was
played by her real life twin sister, who was on a few years ago as
Hattie the bizarre waitress that was in love with Roman. During the
early 80ís I believe the Salem Strangler was introduced to wreck havoc
on the entire town of Salem, which freighted the women who was the
Stranglerís main target.
Marlena had been in Salem for a few years by that time and was already
the fan favorite. According to the story the Salem Strangler was
targeting Marlena. On one Friday episode the show ended with what was
probably the biggest cliffhanger Days of our Lives fans had ever
experienced. The Salem Strangler strangled their beloved Marlena Evans
to death. From magazines I have read I guess right after that episode
aired the switch board at Days of our Lives began to flash non-stop as
well as thousand of telegrams began to pour into the studio all
outraged that Marlena was killed. When Mondayís episode aired and it
turned out that Samantha not Marlena was the woman that was killed.
Iím sure a huge sigh of relief was exhaled as the Marlena fans
rejoiced that she was still alive.
Now getting to the current rumors. It is speculated that Marlena was
in fact the woman that was killed and Samantha this entire time has
been playing the role of her life by pretending to her sister Marlena,
which she had done before (if you donít know that story e-mail and
Iíll tell it to you). Now my thoughts on this prediction is that maybe
the woman we are watching at the moment could be Samantha. One clue is
because Marlena hated the taste of her favorite cookie that her mother
made. Next the flashbacks that we are seeing are not between Marlena
and Alex, but in fact are between Samantha and Alex.
Tony could have switched the sisters at some point, and the woman who
made love to Roman would have been Samantha. (Side note Samantha was
an out of work actress when she came to Salem.) If she is Samantha I
do believe that the Strangler did not kill Marlena that it was in fact
Samantha that was attacked but not killed, because if the writers
would rewrite history and say that Marlena was killed by the Strangler
not only would that be upsetting, but everything we had been watching
up to this point would be a lie. Even though that is very fascinating
to me, I donít think other fans would feel the same way about it.
The reason I like this story if it pans out, is because I was too
young to remember Samantha and they rarely show flash backs or old
episodes with her in it, but she was supposed to be worse than her
namesake Sami is today. That is why I think that yes it could be
Samantha and I am hoping that it is, but then that would mean that
Marlena is kidnapped once again. Now in actuality this entire rumor is
probably just that a rumor. Which would mean Marlena did lose her
memory and Dr. North would either be an old boyfriend, the real Roman,
or possible Stefano, which is also being speculated.
Mimi and Shawn
Let me say these two characters are so much hotter
together than Shawn and Belle. Mimi and Shawnís chemistry is off the
charts. I say make room for Salemís hottest new couple. The flashbacks
between these two are awesome to watch, because I remember those
scenes when they first aired and never saw the sparks between these
characters, until now. The reason that many didnít notice the
attraction is because when Kristen Storms played Belle at the time
Belle and Shawn were the ďitĒ couple, but now I think Mimi and Shawn
are the ďitĒ couple!
How funny was Tony while he was at the Brady Pub and
everyone seemed to want to give him a piece of their minds and or ask
about something that he did to them. I liked after Lexie slapped him,
which yes he deserved and much worse, and then Tony yelled ďNext!Ē
when Lucas was approaching him. Tony does have one thing on his side
the information that Sami was Stan, now it is a race against Nicole
and Kate to tell her secret. Speaking of Nicole, I wonder if Nicole
will become allies with Tony?
Max and Chelsea
So Max can use his brain over other body parts. First
with Chelsea telling him that she wants to give him her virginity, but
she still wants Patrick and Max still was going to sleep with her I
thought him as just a dog. Then Max remember what Frankie told him and
Max wanted to get to know her better and maybe fall in love. Then my
opinion of Chelsea wasnít very high, because she basically said that
love was with Patrick and she was just using Max. Oh if Chelsea is
Georgia boy will Bo and Billie have their hands full.
I will say with Chelsea giving Billie that horrible lecture about
Billie not being a good mother was completely out of line. Yes, maybe
Billie is being too protective of Chelsea after all she is eighteen
and responsible for her own actions now, but I donít care how old
someone is you give respect to the one that you are allowing to help
you. Chelsea agreed to live with Patrick and Billie, if she doesnít
like them meddling in her personal life then all she has to do is move
Okay so we find out that Patrick had this all planned
to capture Tony and he a good guy. I still donít believe that he is a
good guy. Now all of a sudden Patrick is wise and told Billie that
maybe Chelsea is Georgia, could it be part of Tonyís plan, for Patrick
to tell Billie? Patrick is still very shady in my book!
The one thing that we didnít get to see yet was
Caroline and Samiís reunion. These two have always been close to each
other and I would have thought Sami being Sami would have took a
moment and ran over to her grandma and interrupted her grandparentís
reunion so she could be center of her grandmotherís attention. Iím
just glad that everyone is finally back where they belong and Tony is
captured for now at least it wonít last. Now lets see Caroline and
Victor on the show and not forgot about now that they are back home.
Hey, itís just what I think!
A face can launch a thousand ships, but one voice can
make a difference!
