“It’s a Coup D’etat, and its wrong” says Marco.
“No, its the natural order of things, and in a twisted way, the way Stefano wants it,” goes Bart.
“We are remaining neutral,” states Rob.
“We cant’ do that.”
“Because one way or another, Andre is going to be boss, and we need to stay on his good side.”
“Our loyalty to Stefano says we support him.”
“We are all loyal to Stefano, but DiMera Enterprises is our partner, whomever is in charge. Doesn’t matter to this newspaper/TV station.”
“And if that’s going to be Andre, then maybe we should join Andre now.”
“Right now we do nothing. We don’t offer ourselves to Andre and we keep our mouths shut.”
“Nicole’s listening in outside. Ask her to come in.” Bart and Marco leave, wave to Nicole, signaling to her to please go in. She does.
“What’s going on?”
“We were discussing possible sides to take in a hopefully -theoretical Stefano/Andre showdown.”
“You have to take Stefano’s. First of all, how could you not? And secondly, Andre is unstable and not as…he’s nuts!”
“All the more reason to take…not going to happen until after the holidays. No need to dwell now.”
“How was your week?”
“Staying away from Flynn, I hope.”
“Yes, I am.”
“What happened this week?”
This Week in Salem…
Hope failed to recruit Steve in her quest for vengeance on Bo’s captors.
Belle told John and Marlena that her marriage to Shawn was over…she cheated on him AGAIN!
“Who was it with? Early rumors say it wasn’t with Phillip.”
“Andre and Stefano continue to look for Sami to retrieve Stefano’s money.”
“Where is all this going?”
“I’m afraid to speculate.”
“Bo’s funeral was a quick, short one with many suspicious no-shows.”
“Ghost Bo is appearing to Hope and guiding her current motivations.”
Has Hope lost it? Is she’s popping those pills again?
Steve and Kayla ‘reconnected’ after being locked in a closet.
Ben appeared to have killed Nurse Wendy after she helped deliver Abigail (and Chad’s) baby Boy Thomas.”
Yes, after great-great-grandfather, Thomas Horton.
“Despite all of Rafe’s tremendous police work, Chad got to the cabin first.
I’m sure DiMera employees took care of Ben.
Nope, he went by himself.
IDIOT! Let me guess…
Yup. He failed to subdue Ben. Ben tied them both up to the bed, set it on fire, and left with the baby.
Will they get themselves free? Will someone save them?
Rafe to the rescue, I’m sure.
Anne and Theresa had a not-so-friendly friendship talk. Is this their end.
I hope not. I would miss Anne. She’s fun, but without Jennifer and her fighting, there’s not much else for her to do. Speaking of Jennifer, how come it took her so long to worry about Abigail?
“Please don’t ask me to get inside Jennifer’s head.”
“Victor kicked Theresa out of the House. Brady took a stand, left Titan, and also moved out, finding him, Theresa and Tate a place of their own and almost immediately. They ‘baptized’ it.”
Told you the plan would work.
Yes you did. What’s next for Thrady?
“Brady, Gabby, and Paul all may be working for us at Basic Black now.”
Cool. I hope it all works out for all involved. Especially you though.
Hope’s lost it over what happened to Bo. Rafe had to stop her from breaking every law in the cop ‘witness book’,
Hopefully Roman fires her.
Looks like may have. But in Hope’s state of mind that just sets her free to create more chaos.
How far is Hope going to go?
Wonder if she revisited Dr. Baker’s stash? You remember Dr. Baker?
Yes I do. He really wasn’t a bad guy, considering.
Nope. He wasn’t.
Victor, needing to fill an empty chair at Titan, called for Phillip to come home.
I new he wouldn’t rehire Lucas.
Why not? Makes sense. Lucas is already in Salem.
Lucas left his job in Hong Kong on a two week family leave to come home for Will and never went back. He quit on Victor. Wictor cant rehire someone like that.
True enough. Anyway, that’s about it.
Only if we don’t talk about this possible Stefano-Andre thing.
Nicole when I’m with you, you’re all I want to talk about.
