Nicole was feeling stressed. The pressure of Kate, her kissing Deimos, her deal with Victor…It was all bumming her out. She arrived at Rob’s office. She scanned the room looking for his new assistant “Helena,” and didn’t see her. Not knowing what to expect, she entered.
“It’s good to see you. Where is she?”
“Your new assistant, Helena!”
“Oh, her right. She has Fridays off, that way..well you know.”
“Of course, of course. Smart..so am i going to start seeing her around town the way John use to see phony Marlena’s.” “She doesn’t really look like you, Nicole. That was just a gag.”
“Why don’t i believe you?”
“I would never lie to you. She doesn’t really look like you.”
“Okay, well then..good.”
“She is you!”
“I took a strand of your hair and some DNA from your desk and had you cloned!”
Nicole stood up, took an umbrella out of its stand, and started hitting Rob with it.
“OW! OW! OW!”
Rob fell off his chair. The noise brought in a co-worker.
She screamed, as she continued to him him. The co-worked tried not to laugh while leaving, shutting the door behind her.
This week in Salem…
Belle and Shawn reunited romantically. Claire is obviously happy about it. Do you think that its for good this time?
“Hard to tell. Ow!”
Hope told Aiden not to try to get Chase out of jail and for him to leave her and Rafe alone. Do you think Aiden will be able to do so?
“The latter yes, but he won’t stop helping his son…Hope wouldn’t stop helping one of her kids.”
“Kate slapped Deimos for kissing me. Deimos offered to take me up to his bedroom. I told him not without a commitment.” She stopped hitting Rob.
“Good for you.” Rob started to get up.
“STAY!” Nicole hit him again.
“After I left, I called Victor and told him that our plan was working.” Whose plans are moving forward more, Deimos’ or Victor’s?
“I’d say Victors, but…”
“Jennifer’s pills made her hallucinate that Jack was there. After going down memory lane, she admitted she was an addict and agreed to get help. Lucas and Julie were there to support her.”
“Will she get help for real this time?”
“I hope not. I want to see more of Jack”
“Philip hit on a woman during a job interview.”
“SMH. Did she threaten to sue him?”
“No.” What was your first impression of this woman?
“Ciara vowed to hunt down Chase and hurt him if/when he gets out of jail.”
“Ciara agreed to see Marlena AFTER she was done babysitting Thomas”
“Hope wondered if Ciara was developing a crush on Chad. Ciara told Theo that he wasn’t what she was looking for.”
“Theo talk to Claire about how Ciara confused him with her mixed signals.”
“ROTFL! Welcome to the world of dating, Theo. It’s only going to get worse.”
“Will Theo move on with Claire, maybe?”
“Ciara told Marlena she was dangerous and couldn’t be with a normal guy.”
“Hope had a thing for bad boys too.”
“That’s right, she did.”
“Was i a bad boy, Nicole?”
Instead of answering she hit him again.
“STAY DOWN THERE!”
“Chase told Aiden not to get him released, that he was afraid of his inner dark side, the monster inside him.”
“Aiden refused. Chase was attacked in prison, probably shived (stabbed) and rushed to the hospital.”
“I bet Hope got a cop to do it.”
“I wish i could say that wasn’t possible, but sadly, it is.”
“Do you think Chase’s stabbing was related to anything going on with Hope, Rafe, and Aiden?”
JJ’s old friend Rory was arrested carrying major league weight in drugs. He could go away for a long time. Rafe decided to play bad cop with him, JJ tried to play good cop, using their friendship. Roman then yelled at JJ for not having the authority, calling the rookie a rookie.”
“LOL super cop got yelled at!”
“Will this affect JJ’s Career?”
“Eduardo is getting texts from an unknown person about someone he killed as an assassin.”
“That can’t be good, but it is interesting.”
“Eduardo tried to warn Gabby that being involved with a cop could be dangerous. Gabby threw that back in his face, because being an assassin he would know all about that.”
“What will be JJ and Gabby’s first roadblock, JJ’s or Edgardo’s work?”
“Jade and Joey got scorpion tattoos.”
“Scorpion from Mortal Kombat.”
“Don’t think so.”
“A fellow commune member mouthed off to Joey. Joey started a fight.”
“Jade seemed to enjoy it.”
“Jade wouldn’t be the first girl to enjoy men fighting over her. .Sami, Belle, Marlena, Abigail…the list goes on.”
“Joey wanted to leave. Jade agreed to go with him. Before she could say goodbye, Steve found them, and they ran off.”
“I bet they ran off to the same hotel that either Steve or Kayla checked into.”
“Too soon to tell, but wouldn’t surprise me.”
“Kayla and Fynn for some reason followed Steve to California. Will Kayla catch up to them before her and Fynn can do something stupid?”
“JJ and Gabby made love. Rory tracked them down and decked JJ.”
“How did Rory get out? Is he in serious danger?”
“Aiden, I think, called Hope about Chase and actually joined him at the hospital to support him. Rafe wasn’t thrilled, but i hope he can understand.”
“Are you team Aiden or Team Rafe? Thats about it.”
“Can i get up now?”
“Yes. Rob got up. Nicole hit him again.
“Dinner! The most expensive restaurant in town and of course your buying!”
“Helena better not be there.”
“She won’t be, I promise.”
Time to turn the hourglass.
