Everyone who is anyone is Salem is at the Basic Black Fashion show. Rob was mingling with the crowd, very happy for Nicole, as he watched her do her thing—which sadly included getting in Kate’s face every so often.
“There’s my girl,” he said to himself of Nicole.
Proudly he continued to walk around drumming up conversation until he stopped to get a drink. “Soda please?”
After he got his soda he spied Eric watching Daniel and Nicole kissing on the dance floor.
“Hurts, I know,” he said to Eric.
I don’t know what your talking about.
Rob mingled through the crowd. Daniel left with Brady after Melanie contacted him.
“Eric’s had way to many” he tells Nicole.
“I can see that.”
“Great show, Nicole. I’m so proud of you.”
This Week In Salem…
Kate did everything she could to sabotage Theresa’s big night at the show. I got in her face and told her to knock it off or else.
“Why is she being such a B#$%$#?”
“Brady continued his support of Theresa, not letting her give up. Even when things looked their bleakest, he admitted to loving the real Theresa, the Theresa he’s seen over the last few weeks. And one of the things he loves about her is that she never gives up.”
“Where would Brady be if Theresa gave up trying to get rid of Melanie? And what doors will open for Theresa and Brady now that Basic Black is back in business?”
“Abigail is convinced Chad has been brainwashed. Thomas Jack got sick, and upon examination Abigail found out that Ben can’t be the father.”
“And here we go. SMH.”
“Chad finally broke through Belle’s resistance and got her into bed.”
“Uh huh. And Abigail?”
“She tracked down Chad, burst into his room, and interrupted him and belle as they started making love.”
“Of course she did. Because the hospital doesn’t have any of his blood stored there. She needed to know right then and there/”
“Anyway, she made a comment about Belle being married before Belle scuttled out of the room.”
“Abgail made a comment about Belle being married?”
“Yeah, she was with Austin when he was married and EJ when he was engaged, and yet she made a comment about Belle being married.”
“Where does Abigail get off being such a hypocrite?”
“Andre wants to pressure Chad into his Find Sami/Their Money mission.”
“Stefano says he’s getting tired and doesn’t seem to care.”
“Well, truthfully Nicole, its only 50 million. They don’t need it.”
“What does Stefano ‘getting tired’ mean?”
“Who says its supposed to mean anything?”
“Word is Stefano is looking into retiring.” Rob started hyperventilating, grasping at his chest for air. Nicole gave him a glass of water.
“Are you trying to kill me, Nicole?”
“Paul and Gabby were relieved when Nicole and Theresa regained control of the fashion show. Almost Everyone is now convinced that Kate wanted the event to fail, to make a point.”
“John and Marlena noticed Ava Vitali back in town for her apology tour.”
“Will the show even remind the viewers that John and Ava were a couple?”
“I had so much fun with New John.”
Kate warned Phillip about going down the Belle road.”
“Can’t argue with Kate there. Belle/Phillip was a major disaster.”
“Will Belle go from Chad to Phillip.”
“Not ‘will’ but ‘how long until?’… I say two episodes.”
“Poor Joey has obviously fallen for Ava.”
“Joey’s at a terrible age right now. I feel bad for him. Remember when we were 16?”
“That was obviously different.”
“I know. Just reminiscing.”
“How hurt is Joey going to be when this is all played out?”
“He’s young. He’ll be stronger for it.”
“Do you believe that?”
Rob and Nicole hear Eric grumbling.
“Abigail told Chad he’s the father of Thomas Jack.”
“Right after she called out Belle. SMH. Eric grumbled even louder.
“I better check on him.”
“Let me know if you need help.”
Nicole tried to give Eric a warm heartfelt talk, and she leaft him after he agrees to call for a cab.
After some more mingling, Nicole gets a message on her phone from Daniel. She starts to cry tears of joy.
Daniel, Brady, Jennifer, and Eric are all seen driving down the road.
Time to turn the hourglass.
