This week in Salem:
Nicole and Zander are sharing champagne when…
Nicole: OH, SHOOT!
Zander: What’s the matter?
Nicole: I have to get something to my boss.
Zander: Can’t you just email it?
Nicole: His email’s down. Hold on, Ill ask Eric. I overheard him and his grandmother saying she was going that way.
Nicole: Makes a phone call and Eric agrees to help her. That was nice of Eric–yeah it was….
Eric and Caroline arrive at Nicole’s newspaper and make their way to Rob’s office.
Robert: Hello Caroline, Eric. Pleased to officially meet you both. Nicole has told me so much about you both.
“You look familiar,” says Caroline “Have we met?”
Robert: I’ve eaten in your pub several times over the years, Miss Brady. But i don’t think we can really call that meeting . What can I do for you?
Caroline: I’d like to purchase advertising space for my Pub.
Robert: Happy to help.
Eric: Nicole can’t make it into the office today, so she asked me to give you this.
Eric hands Robert a flash drive.
Robert: “Is she okay? “Rob asked with a worried sound
Eric: She’s fine, just busy?
“Glad to hear it she’s my star reporter.”
Eric: She speaks well of you too,” adds Eric.
Robert walks over to his desk with the flashdrive and Caroline’s ad, loading them in to his computer.
Robert: Here is your receipt, Miss Brady, thank you, and you too Eric for bringing this here.
When they leave the office, Caroline looks at Brady, and leans and whispers at, ” I was sure he was one of Stefano’s thugs hanging outside the pub a few years ago.”
Eric: I doubt it, grandmother.”
Robert: Oka,y what have you got for me?
Nicole: Sorry. Couldn’t be in the office, boss, but I’m partying with Zander. Was at the top of the page. Lucas, using a clause in the company contract, fired the first blow in a war against his mother. How far will these two take it before there is nothing left of family or between either of them? Paul tried to make nice with Brady. Brady got in his face, Theresa made it all about her and got in Paul’s face, John got in between them and dropped the brother bomb. Paul told Everyone to get lost. Will they become a real family ?
Theresa’s plans to remove Melanie and get Brady and his money all to herself are underway.
Ben, with help from Aiden, had his name legally changed to Weston.
Robert: How come the IRS isn’t all over Ben for his many, many counts of identity fraud?
Nicole: Will arrived in popular bluff and ran into Jemimah. Are they going to tell Will what they think he wants to hear or will the just “convince him”
What to write about Roman? Without a warrant, he took it upon himself to harass JJ and Jennifer while searching through his house. After Roman was gone, JJ found drugs hidden in his room and blamed EVE immediately. Eve tore into Cole for his overboard screw up. How much more can Salem take of JJ, Eve, Jennifer and Page before It all goes kaboom. Stefano decided to give Marlena a free trip to Italy, to extract some revenge for Kristen by having Marlena suffer the same fate. The two of them shared some fine memories while two goons half Marlena’s age couldn’t throw her out an open window. Roman and Abe got to Chad who convinced via blackmail to let Marlena go Stefano relented and then took Marlena home, both acting as if nothing happened.
Should Marlena seek out and thank Chad for saving her life? Rumors in the wind are singing that Andre Dimera will be joining Steve and Bo’s return to Salem this year ? Will it be Andre will it be Tony where is Anna where is Bart? Has Bo been held captive by Andre this entire time “
Won’t be printing that last part Robert thought to himself using his pen to cross it out.
