4/7/10 review - Checkmate


EJ/Stefano - The best part of today’s episode was the stand-off with Stefano and EJ.  EJ tells Sami that he thinks he’s won and will get Stefano permanently out of his life until Stefano lets him know otherwise; that he knows all about EJ being the real Sydnapper. Steffy gets the Hypocrite of the Week award though when he said “What kind of monster could trick people into believing such a terrible thing [as that a little girl is dead]?” Damn, Stefano has faked so many deaths over the years I’ve lost count; and I hope EJ says as much tomorrow. I loved the chess game between Stefano and EJ. Joe and James ROCKED IT!


Sami/Will/Kate/Gaby - Will’s mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. When he sees evidence that EJ had breakfast with Sami, he decides to move in with Kate at the Dimera Mansion. Not terribly enthralling but still more interesting than another SAFE breakup.

Rafe/Hope/D.A. Woods and Wife/Chad/Lexie/Abe - D.A. Woods is brought into the hospital, having been beaten up. He accuses Rafe as his attacker. When Hope questions Rafe, he says he didn’t do it. This storyline is lame right from the get-go. The whole thing about Benny being released was a flimsy reason for Rafe to lose it in the first place. Who really cares about what happened to the D.A.? And there’s no chance in hell that Rafe actually did it…so what’s the point of all this nonsense?

Bo/Carly/Dan/Victor/Ciara - Bo gets ready to leave Salem for L.A. so that he can donate bone marrow to Kimberly. He says goodbye to Carly and Ciara; but sorry BOPE fans, Hope doesn’t even get so much as a “see you later” even though she was on in the same episode. I’m “unspoiled” at the moment so maybe we’ll see it tomorrow but I won’t hold my breath. Carly gives Daniel some information about his double vision, although no one seems to question how the hell he’s going to read it. Daniel worries how poor wittle Carwee will get by without the Big Strong Bo to protect her from the Big Bad Vivian. Last I recall, Carly knew how to make a filet steak out of a troublesome husband, so I’m not too worried about her, to tell you the truth.

  1. Great point Fancy Face. Carly has stabbed and killed her husband, and shot Melanie. Why is anyone worried about Carly's well being? Carly has hurt more people the last 9 months than Vivian.

  2. The only people worried about Carly's well-being are the writers, who are hell-bent on infantilizing the character.

  3. The DA Woods fake beating will probably go down as a fake EJ beating to make Rafe look bad. EJ could not let Woods go through with a case against Benny the goof. So a deal was made between EJ and slime dog Woods. With Will now at the Dimera mansion, I am sure Will stumbles on evidence. Wait and see.

  4. God will someone quit kissing Crystal butt already and end this Bo and Carly nonsense! Nobody likes it except for the Barly fans! I wasn't a huge Bo and Hope fan and thought Bo was being alittle walked on by Hope when she left! However, talk about a change of heart! The way Bo has treated Hope and Ciara has been HORRIBLE! Can't believe the writers have done this to the Bope fans! No wonder Days ratings are sucking! They all probably left!

    I did love the Stefano and EJ scenes! They seem to be the only saving grace of this show lately as the total show sucks! It may be time to start checking out One Life to Live!

    JS and JM knock out of the park their scenes you will see. The Ej/Stefano relationship is so twisted, fascinating and complex..watch, watch.

  6. More people like Carbo/Barly than you think, seriously though if Crystal had any pull at that show Melanie wouldnt of been revealed as her daughter she would of nipped that in the bud very quickly, oh and they would of dressed her better.

  7. "God will someone quit kissing Crystal butt already and end this Bo and Carly nonsense! Nobody likes it except for the Barly fans!"

    The idea that CC has somehow lucked out with the Carly character is laughable. No actor relishes playing a goody-goody damsel in distress with a shitty wardrobe. I bet CC/Olivia fans are bailing on the show in droves and returning to the greener pastures of Otalia/GL youtube clips.

  8. Well I definitely think that Carly can handle herself! It is just hilarious that Bo and Daniel would think otherwise. I am also curious as to how they are going to play out this situation with Rafe and Woods. I actually have a poll about this over at my site to see what everyone else thinks. Come by, vote, and take a look around if you want!

  9. Kissing Crystal's butt? Lawd as though this version of Carly is doing her any favors? I keep reading how Bo and Hope have been destroyed for Carly coming to town. Well guess what? Carly has been destroyed too!


    The writers saddle her with murdering her husband, an insta daughter via one night stand and sleeping with Bo while he's still married. If all that isn't enough we have some vague, poorly done abuse issues. We have crazy Vivian threatening Carly every other day. We have all of Salem hating on Carly - even though she was a well liked character back in the day (and sorry but why does Carly never get to say anything back? Victor calling her a slut is laughable. He tried to kill Bo twice because of his obsession with Dr Manning. I'd love for someone - anyone to point that out when he starts that stuff). And she's turned from a character who took on a big oil company (Carly 1.0) and could stand up for herself ... into the current damsel in distress who seemingly cannot even wander the pier without a bodyguard around. Oh and has a crappy wardrobe.


    I'm sure CC is happy to have a job, but after playing Olivia? This has got to be tough.

  10. So true, its got to be hard for her to get through scenes especially after playing a character for 10 years that didnt need a mans help (but of course she had plent of them lol) to now the character that has to live with a man just to be protected ugh the writers seriously need a history lesson this girl went on the run for years and managed to evade Lawrence now she can't even hold a cup of coffee, and really what did she do to deserve Melanie as an insta daughter Melanie is nothing like Carly or Daniel.
