“How was Canada jail AA?” she smirked
“Horrible! You know they only have basic cable! Savages…Listen, I’m sorry about the whole—,” Nicole cut him off.
“Forget it. You spent a night in jail? Where even? Why were you there a week before coming trying to come home anyway? You were missed around here.”
“Sightseeing. You know what I found while walking around?”
“No clue.” Nicole helped herself to coffee and sat down.
“An actual VHS video rental store! And look what the store had?” Rob put a box on the table. Nicole leaned up, pulled the box toward, her saw the box was full of Misty Circle Adult Tapes and spit out her coffee.
This week in Salem
Deimos fired all of Victor’s staff that hadn’t previously quit upon Victor’s exit. Deimos deemed them untrustworthy. Was this a smart movie on Deimos’ part or an overreaction?
“Smart move, actually, sad to say.”
Justin threatened Deimos with legal action. Deimos laughed at Victor’s obvious desperation.
“Like you, Brady tried to lure me out of town until the Deimos conflict is over.”
“We would have had a great life, Nicole.”
“I believe you…Deimos offered me Basic Black. Kate was livid.”
“That must have been funny.”
“It was. I’m considering the job…as part of Victor and my plans.”
“Deimos also offered to Buy DJ Wear. Theresa was not happy.”
“I don’t blame her.” What will happen to Theresa should her lose her company?
Theresa called Brady out on his hero complex.
“Did she get through to him?”
New arrival, Clark, blackmailed Summer. She told Brady. Brady paid him off with threats. Theresa laid into Brady about his hero complex again.
“After finding a picture of Helena, Kate started putting pieces together and showing her jealousy of, me. I laid into Deimos. Deimos replied with an easier-to-watch-me type of response.”
“Please be careful, Nicole.”
“Don’t worry, Rob. Everything will be fine.”
“Kate and I traded banter and insults over everything going on.”
“I bet you gave it to her good.” Kate or Nicole: whose side are you on?
Jade and Joey prepared for their L.A. road trip. How far will they get before they are stopped—or worse?
“Aww, it’s just like Bo and Hope.”
“It most certainly is not.”
Ciara told Hope she was moving out and wondered if Claire wanted to be her roommate. She told Chad she was quitting school. Chad made her an offer—to keep her babysitting job without leaving school. Will she take Chad up on his offer?
“I think I see a future couple.”
“I seriously doubt it?” What are your thoughts on Ciara?
Theo told Ciara he loved her. How soon until they are real couple?
Chad went to see Abigail. Abigail told Chad that Ben wont let her go home. How will this affect Abigail’s recovery?
“Too soon to have any impact, I imagine.”
Brady and Theresa continued to fight about Summer and second chances. How soon until their relationship cracks.
“They will weather it out.”
John and Paul planned out a baseball stadium road trip. Brady somehow got himself invited. Will he go? Do you see him as a third wheel in this situation?
Marlena went to see Belle. Marlena informed everyone about Belle and Shawn’s pending divorce. Everyone was saddened.
Theresa warned Brady again.
Paul got sick while talking to John do you think this has anything to do with Yo Ling?
Family diner at the Hernandez house, plus JJ, had your typical for or against Papa fireworks. Dario seemed to realized he carried things too far as Gabby stopped him. Will Dario be open to having a full family reunion?
Back to Clark and Summer: one thing led to another, she hit him over the head, he, died she called Dario to help get rid of him, telling her to hurry up with their plans before Rafe figures them out.
“Rafe—HA! They needn’t worry about Rafe. They need to worry about Victor,
now that someone has died. How far are Summer and Dario willing to go with all those involved with them?
Brady tried to make peace with Theresa with chocolate.
“Would you take Brady and chocolate, or 50,000 dollars?”
“I’d take the money, but if it were you, I’d choose you over all the money in the world,” Rob said while looking through the box.
“Aww, so sweet…stop looking at those!” Nicole snapped.
Anne resurfaced out of thin air and chatted with Theresa. Are you happy to see her again?
“I like her.”
Rafe prepared a surprise evening for Hope. Hope said it would be wrong in Bo’s bed.
“Bo’s bed after all that time away and Aiden??? That makes no sense at all.”
“It seemed weird to me too.”
“They decided to go somewhere special and the—.”
“Lol! Yup. Sparks are going to fly on Monday.”
“Cant wait…you hungry?”
“Yes, but first we are disposing of all these movies?”
“Awww…” Nicole caught a look.
“You made copies, didn’t you?”
“Who, me? Naaaah.
“We’ll discuss that at dinner.” Nicole gave Rob the box to carry.
“Should we give the one about babysitters to Chad and Ciara?”
“Not now, not ever!”
“Yeah, bad idea.”
Time to turn the hourglass…
