The good folks of Salem didn't participate in much Halloween revelry this week -- at least, not consciously. We did have people in costume (Carly), trick-or-treating (Chad ringing the DiMera doorbell once again), even a Wicked Witch of the West making an appearance (VIVIAN!). What other spooky delights did we enjoy? Read on for our rundown:
Funniest Moment: Again, not much with "the funny" on Days this week. But there were two chuckle-worthy moments that stood out for us. First, we love it when Stefano tells it like it is. After Nicole's aborted trip to Rio, she shows up at his hospital bedside to give him a piece of her mind. Instead, Stefano admits he enjoys Nicole's gumption in the face of total annihilation. "You're like those brave men at the Alamo," he said. "Dead, but brave." The Phoenix is totes funny.
Runner-up is the moment when Bo first saw Carly (cloaked in black) in the light of his living room: "You look like Agent 99!" We love a good Get Smart reference any day of the week.
WTH? Moment: This is actually a holdover WTH? from last week, but it still holds true. Does anyone else find it weird that Sami gave Nicole FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS to run away to Brazil with Sydney? First of all, they've only just gotten to be friends after years of bitterness. And second, how does Sami have that kind of money laying around? We need new friends, yo.
Best Moment: Umm, can we just tell you how rad it was to see Vivian on Friday's episode? We cannot WAIT until she makes it back to Salem to hunt down Lawrence's killer (aka Carly). This is a woman who buried Carly alive last time 'round, so god only knows what she'll do now!
Performer of the Week: Despite our WTH-ing, we're giving this week's award to Alison Sweeney as Sami Brady. Her character is still on the surface of the whole baby-switch scenario, but she's making the most of what info she has. For what it's worth, she's dedicated to helping Nicole -- and will even stand up to Stefano to do so. And we also can't help but enjoy the underlying sexual tension that still exists between Sami and EJ. A portent of things to come ... ? Good work, Ali!
Why We Love Days of our Lives This Week: Because only Stefano would formulate a plan to keep his granddaughter that involves making a 16-year-old look like the town hussy ... and because even in a weakened state, Rafe was still -- FINALLY -- able to tell someone else that Sydney is really Sami's baby. At last, he can share that burden of knowledge!
What was your favorite part of Days?
