“Hey, Rob. I’m on my way.”
“An emergency came up, Nicole. I need your help. Won’t take too long. I know your at Victor’s. I’ll pick you up.”
“How did you know I was here?”
“Because I know you better than anyone else.” By the time Nicole got to the driveway, Rob pulled up.
“Wow, that was fast. Were you driving around and around the block?”
“Yes,” Nicole got into the car and Rob sped off.
“Where are we going?”
“CANADA! Don’t worry I packed some of your clothes from your overnight emergency drawer at my house.”
“CANADA?! I can’t go all the way to Canada!”
“I’m getting you out of the country until this Victor vs. Deimos war is over…not going to see you hurt.” Rob started driving faster.
Nicole just shook her head
“Do you have the recaps ready? It’s going to be a long drive.”
This week in Salem…
Shawn is obviously scared of strong, independent women, as he continues to be intimidated by Lani’s woman-powered, aggressive desires. Is he still pining for Belle, who had Shawn sign the divorce papers? Despite being with Phillip, showed signs of jealousy. When will this back and forth, blah blah blah, recycled 2003 storyline end once and for all?
“Not soon enough..,GET OUT OF THE WAY!” Rob yelled at a car he sped by.
Theo asked Ciara to the prom. She said yes. Abe is worried about Theo.
Is it general concern, or is it something else we don’t’ know about yet?
Andre called Hope from prison they exchanged threats
“How soon into Andre is freed from his unlawful imprisonment sooner than Hope hopes? Heh heh heh.”
“Eyes on the road please.” Nicole looked through Rob’s packed bag of her things. It was just normal clothes.
“There’s nothing…like that in there. We’re going on the lam. Not on a vacation!”
“IM NOT GOING TO CANADA! Rob clicked the locks on the car and drove faster.
“Sigh.” Abigail, hearing Marlena and Chad talk about her having PTSD, took off with Thomas.
Steve wants joey to get counseling over the Ava smothering. Joey yelled at Kayla for making Steve leave. Steve said Kayla will miss him and come back. Was joey right in his declaration?
Jade, unhappy with her own parental situation, asked Joey to run away with him. Will they leave Salem?
“They’ll get caught before they reach Chicago.” A police siren went off.
“NUTS.” Rob pulled over. “HA! Speeding ticket now.
“After you get the ticket turn around, or I’ll scream kidnapping to the cop.”
“Excuse me, sir I pulled you over for speeding. May I see your license and registration please?”
“THE PHOENIX LIVES ON!” Rob responded.
“Have a nice night, Sir.” The cop leaves. Rob laughs and speeds off again.
“WHAT?” goes Nicole.
Fynn went to see Kayla, who had another fainting spell. Can you see Fynn and Kayla as a couple?
Theresa offered her and Brady’s place to Maggie and Victor. Will things between victor and Theresa implode or will they start to get along?
“I hope they implode. Victor’s funny when he’s grouchy.”
“Victor asked me to unleash the old Nicole on Deimos after he fell in love with me to destroy him and he would reward me big time.”
“That SON OF A—” Rob just drove.
Maggie demanded answers from Victor. Will victor tell Maggie EVERYTHING? Victor wants her to let it go. What is he hiding, and will he ever tell her?
“Not this soon, no.”
Maggie demanded vengeance for what happened to her. Do you like seeing Maggie like this?
“I told Brady and Theresa Victor’s plan involving me and Deimos. Brady flipped out and demanded that I stay out and let the professionals handle it.”
Brady told Theresa he would get Deimos for Maggie.
“See Brady agrees with me. Don’t worry, Nicole. Canada’s nice this time of year.”
Hope’s mysterious caller called again, asking her what was the delay in her handling Deimos. She confronted him.
“So why didn’t she shoot him?”
“Hope’s a such a hypocrite! NEXT!”
Chad and JJ found Abigail and Thomas at a hotel and begged her to let them help. After some reluctance she agreed. What kind of help are they referring to?
Deimos shared more of the Deimos/Helena/Victor past with me, despite suspecting me as a double agent and wondered how much I was being paid.
If its the truth, why hide it?
Joey and Jade shared a teenage mistake by choosing the living room couch to make out on. Kayla walked in and broke it up. Upon being lectured, Joey snapped back, calling himself an adult and saying that Jade was the only good thing in his life, because Kayla tore his family apart. Is joey an adult? Did we miss another SORAS?
Dr. Fynn told Steve to give Kayla some space. Is this sound medical advice, or is he interested in her?
Claire and Theo prepared for prom. At the prom, a guy kissed Ciara after trashing Theo. Ciara got angry. Theo beat the crap out of him.
“Good for Theo. But if it’s anything like the beating Ben gave Chad, sure sign of a psycho.”
Did Theo go too far?
“Sounds like a couple of punches too far? We’ll see how stable he is when its died down.”
“Pretty good week mostly…now turn the car around, please. We can’t get into Canada.”
“Sure we can. I have our passports.” Nicole sat back and thought about how to make rob come down off his current bender, fully confident they wouldn’t leave Chicago, much less get all the way to Canada.
Time to turn the hourglass.
