Robert:So what do you think, JJ?
JJ: Run it by me again, Sir?
Robert: I heard about your assisting law enforcement in getting Clyde Weston’s drugs off the streets. Did some background-checking, and I think you will be a good asset here…we’ll start you as an intern which will help you with your college and then…,just think: one day you could be as great a journalists as your father was. We all read the Spectator when we were younger.
JJ: I dont know, Sir, I’m not sure my mother would like it if I worked with a paper so closely associated with Stefano Dimera?
Robert: What makes you think I’m associated with him?
JJ: Just what i heard and read…and there’s a picture of you and him on the shelf over there.” Rob turned around.
Robert: Right, that…that’s just a publicity photo. Your mother and father did the same thing when they needed donations.
Just then Jennifer walks in.
Jennifer: Time to go JJ. Abigail is coming home for dinner.
Robert: Hello, Jennifer.
Jennifer: Thank you for your generous Hospital donation, Robert.
Robert: You’re very welcome.
Jennifer: Come on, JJ.
JJ: Yes, mother.
Robert: Think about it, JJ.
JJ and Jennifer leave. Robert can hear whispers of Jennifer scolding JJ about being there too long. When they clear the hallway, Nicole enters.
Nicole: What was that all about.
Robert: I offered JJ a job.
Robert: Doesn’t matter—his mom wont let him take it. How are you?
Nicole: Doing good, making wedding plans, marking down Basic black strategies…
Robert: …ignoring Theresa in the process.
Nicole: Her time will come.
Robert: What do you have for me?
This week in Salem…
Nicole: Caroline’s miracle drug gave her supernatural powers—she can now see and feel Bo. Will this lead to Bo being rescued.’
Nicole: John thinks he found a woman that can help him with info on Ilayna Petrov, who then can help fill in gaps in between being adopted by the Aliemans and being brought to Salem as the pawn.
Are you interested in johns origin, or have you had enough?
Robert: Time to move on from John. Next.
Nicole: Gaby discovered Will’s body. Rafe and Hope followed, and after some sad denial Lucas called Sami.
Sonny and Sami came home. Are you happy to see them?
Robert: Of course, of course.
Nicole: Andre told Aiden to get the evidence against Chad from the police station. will he do it? Will he get caught? What is Hope going to do?
The big question is, why don’t they use professionals?
Robert: Aww…are you upset that he didn’t ask you?
Nicole: No, but I was the one who got Colin Murphy to Melaswen so you could be cleared of his murder, remember?
Robert: Of course I do, but what’s that got to do with this?
Nicole: Nothing, just reminiscing.
Marlena continues to doubt Chad’s guilt. Saying he doesn’t fit the profile, and attacking her made no sense. Will Marlena’s statements be enough to help him?
Robert: No, he’s going to jail.
Nicole: Oh, for Pete’s sake! You know he’s innocent!
Robert: I believe it, if you do, Nicole, sighed Rob.
Nicole: Chad and Ben had a confrontation. Sadly for Chad, Ben had that super human strength that comes with being a psycho and beat Chad very badly.
Chad was arrested. Abigail still believes he’s innocent, and Rafe is beginning to suspect Ben. Will this be the turning point to chads vindication?
Robert: Glad Rafe’s doing real police work. Next.
Nicole: Daniel and I discussed wedding plans. Kate and Lucas almost reconciled.
Robert: It’s what Will would want.
Nicole: Theresa began to distance herself from Anne, focusing more on work and motherhood. Will Theresa continue on her path alone? She may have made some progress in getting Kate and myself to take her seriously.
Robert: She’s not alone. She has me. Hopefully, soon she’ll have Brady.
Nicole: Sami arrived in Salem, and after exploding in anger, with some prodding, started to grieve.
Robert: Grieving is good.
Nicole: Then she tried to murder Chad.
Robert: Of course she did.
Nicole: Marlena stopped her. Sami went on DiMera tirades that didn’t make sense to anyone who knows about her and her relationship with EJ.
Robert: It was an…interesting one.
Nicole: Interesting? More like bizarre…anyway, speaking of EJ, she got a letter from him from beyond the grave apparently telling her Stefano was responsible for his demise.
Robert: And of course she believed it.
Robert: Do you think the letter is legitimate?
Nicole: No, I think she’s being played.
Andre and Stefano were discussing the future while playing chess.
Nicole: That can only mean fun fun fun!”
That’s about it.
Nicole: Sounds good.
Time to turn the hourglass…
