Well it looks like Kate's poisoned-apple gambit against Chloe was a roaring success, because as next week begins, she'll be rushed to the hospital -- and Daniel, Lexie, and co. race to save her life. Meanwhile, Kate can be seen in the background, asking the closest mirror "Who's the fairest of them all?"
You know who USED to rival Kate, in terms of murderous scheming, is Nicole. Are we buying this new, tortured, secretly do-gooding Nicole? Well ... maybe. She certainly seems to be all about the best interests of the children these days. In fact, when she sees Stefano indoctrinating Sydney into the DiMera way of life, she flips. Too bad she and Stefano are engaged in something of a moral Mexican standoff.
Hey, and how about the new guys in town? Despite getting a friendly warning from Bo about her, Nathan keeps crossing paths with Melanie. In fact, Nathan and Melanie end up at the Horton family cabin with Brady and Arianna, and what happens when you're stranded with three insanely attractive people with nothing to do? That's right: strip poker. But Brady's usually so modest about taking his shirt off!
