The Oracle of Salem
After dropping Maggie off at the hospital with Dario, Victor showed up. Nicole, thinking it best to avoid his “attitude” towards her, went to call Theresa and discuss business when she saw a text from her.
“Nicole, went to go see Rob. He said he had something important to show me. Meet us there when you can. Bye.”
“NO, NO, NO! I swear he better not or…I’m going to…Nicole left for Rob’s office.
At Rob’s Office…
“Thanks for coming, Theresa.”
“Sure. What’s up?”
“Well, I wanted to congratulate you again on your engagement to Brady and at the same time. I feel I have to tell you what he and nobody else won’t.”
“What is it?” Theresa wondered, getting nervous.
Brady, like you me and everyone else, has exes—some we try to hide for good reasons some, for not so good. Look at these people please.
“Ugh. I hoped I’d never see her again.”
“Kristen DiMera, of course. Can’t blame you there. But do you know the other two?”
“The first one is Ari Hernadez, sister of Rafe and Gabby.”
“The second on is Madison James.”
“Those two along with Kristen….three Brady fiancees, three DEAD woman.”
“WHAT? Theresa looked closer at the pictures. On the back they had detais: ages, causes of death, and family info. Just then Nicole walked in.”
“Nicole, why didn’t you tell me about this?”
“Because it never came up. Rob why did you?”
“Somebody had to. Better it come from a friend.”
“Never came up? My god, Nicole, we’re partners, and I’m engaged to him…”
“It has nothing to do with anything relevant today.”
“That may be true, but she deserved to know.”
“Not like this. I’m sorry about this, Theresa.”
“It’s okay, Nicole. I understand where both of you are coming from. Rob was just showing his concern.”
“Nailed it…let’s all go eat.”
This week in Salem…
The ORACLE of Salem!
Party pooper Hope broke up Ciara’s 18th birthday party. Ciara was naturally still bothered by Chase’s assault. Hope assured Ciara that Chase would pay.
Ciara said Hope should have killed Chase…Why hasn’t Hope killed chase yet considering her previous murders?
Shawn complained about Phillip to Lani. Great way to earn points on a date, Shawn. Will this Shawn-Phillip-Belle thing ever be over?
Roman covered up Joey’s murder confession.
“Did Roman ever cover for you, Theresa?”
“Yes, he did.”
“No, but I’m not family.”
“Of course, of course, the man has to have limits. SMH.”
Jade, trying to console Joey, kissed him.” Can you see them as a couple?
Abgial continues to see Ben wherever she goes, claiming that he is stalking them. Chad says she’s freaking out over nothing. Abigail showed Chad her shredded wedding dress, proving that it wasn’t nothing.
“SHREDDED WEDDING DRESS?????” went Theresa.
“Calm down, Theresa. Nobody is going to blame you/our company.”
Is ben messing with her or is something more sinister going on?
“Dario got me up to speed on Eduardo and his family situation.”
Mami Hernandez, mother to Rafe, Gabby, and Dario came back to town, and started yelling at everyone for not being kept in the loop. Do you think keeping her in the loop could have prevent any of this?
John is worried about what Yo-Ling did to Paul, but didn’t know what to do about it. John and Steve are best friends all of a sudden, despite the age difference, it seems to be a good, long-standing one.
Paul told John he was proud to have John’s DNA.
“You know, what happened to Paul is Hope’s fault.”
“Oh, don’t you start.”
“Aunt Hope? How is it her fault?”
“It’s not. Just forget it.”
“Like heck it’s not! He/his presence kept Yo-Ling and his Winter Wonderland bunch out of the city for nearly 40 years.”
“Point taken, but please…” Nicole nodded at Theresa.
“Right, right. Sorry. Sorry, Theresa. Forget it.”
“Okay…” Theresa said, dropping it for now.
Mama Hernandez wasted no time trying to turn all her children against Eduardo and blasted them for even talking to him.
“Guy did his best to provide for his family.”
“By being a contract killer.”
“Philip and belle talked Claire into singing at the club. Claire agreed—sweetening the pot with a record deal, studio, the whole works. It seems to have worked.”
Does Claire have a legitimate shot? Should she take advantage of family generosity, or shake it off refusing to be bought?
“Tough one to call. She’s so young.”
“Brady invited everyone to his house to announce his engagement to Theresa. Victor promised to try to avoid it. LOL! When victor asked Brady about Summer in Salem, Brady told him about Daniel’s heart and the dream. Victor called Daniel the Oracle of Salem, showing his disappointment in Brady, swearing to get the real story about summer “his way.” What will Victor find about Summer?
“Victor’s a hoot.”
“He’s an old, bitter fool,” went Theresa.
“He’s a lot worse than that,” added Nicole.
“Maggie shared her story about baby Summer with adult Summer. They seem to be bonding but something is off. Not sure if Maggie see’s it.”
“Deimos seems to have genuinely tried to make peace with Victor. All it would have taken was a confession and apology. Victor would have none of it, and left Deimos disappointed.”
“Maggie had to be taken to the hospital.”
“This was obviously Deimos’ doing.” But what did he do? Does it have anything to do with what happened to Caroline, and does it tie into what Yo-ling had?
“Tough to tell if they will add it all together.”
“That’s about it.”
“You were right not to tell me about those women, Nicole. I wasn’t even in Salem for most of it. It’s none of my business.”
“See! Everything worked out!” Rob boasted.
“But then again, Rob, what you did was kind of tacky.”
“Ha!” laughed Nicole. Nicole and Theresa continued to make fun of rob, laughing the entire time. Rob was very happy that their friendship seemed to be the real deal.
Time to turn the hourglass…
