Another week in Salem, another chance for Rafe to find out that Sami's baby Grace wasn't really Sami's baby Grace. Sadly, he's still on truth's trail -- but he's closer, ever closer. Meanwhile, Daniel was able to administer an experimental treatment to Chloe (and find the gloves Kate used when handling the poison!!), and it turns out that Victor Kirakis is making like Tony Montana. Read on for our favorite moments from the week ...
Funniest Moment: We love a good '90s TV reference as much as the next person, so we had to LOL a bit when Kate was talking with Craig, Chloe's father, about how Nathan Horton seemed leery of going forward with Chloe's living will. "Doogie Howser doesn't want to honor Lucas's decision ... ," said Ms. Roberts. If only NPH had rounded the corner of the hospital with chart in hand, wearing a bow tie ...
WTH? Moment: There were two this week, in fact. First, doesn't anyone in Salem have Caller ID on their cell phones? Kate picks up her cell -- expecting it to be drunk Daniel (again, after having just ended a heated conversation with him) -- and can't tell it's her son Lucas until he says "Hello, Mom." Isn't Caller ID free with Salem Cellular's friends & family plan?
Secondly, we've decided that Daniel has a major propensity to talk to himself -- so much so, it almost gets him caught ... like in Chloe's hospital room, after giving her the dose of poison meant to pull her out of the coma. We found ourselves yelling at the TV screen, "WTH! They're coming, Daniel!" And then we looked up and saw our coworkers staring. Remember, kids: An inside voice works best for office environments.
Best Moment: When Troy the Drug Guy, and a man of some kind of Eastern European origin, discuss how they're meeting Arianna about their cocaine-dealing business. Turns out, Man of Eastern European Descent is NOT the "big boss" ... camera pulls back to reveal one VICTOR KIRIAKIS! We gasped, we readily admit. Totes didn't see it coming.
We also enjoyed Melanie and Nathan's Cheerios product placement. It was pretty seamless.
Performer of the Week: Nadia Bjorlin as Chloe ... saying so much by saying so little. And she looks so angelic doing it! For her sake, we hope she gets to speak some full paragraphs again soon.
Why We Love "Days of our Lives" This Week: Because Sami and Rafe might be finding their way back to one another, and because Stefano is (and always will be) a badass.
