As EJ (James Scott) and his possibly preggers concubine met in the park Tuesday on Days of Our Lives, Sami (Alison Sweeney) was filling her O.G. baby daddy in on her upcoming nuptials. Don't expect Lucas (Bryan Datillo) to make a toast to EJami's eventual wedded bliss anytime soon. I can't wait until Sami learns her ex-hubby's sweet little niece, Abigail (Kate Mansi), has been screwing her man!
Abby's mama has much more boring problems of her own. Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) confronted Theresa (Jen Lilley) about those silly photoshopped pictures.
Seriously, DAYS? You guys go from kick-ass storylines about taking down priest-drugging sociopaths, to "riveting" arcs about hospital personnel pranks and love at the PTA?
Jennifer is a 40-something woman with two grown children. Why is she starring in a Kelly Kapowski plot from a very-special episode of Saved By The Bell? Aren't you supposed to spring forward this time of year, as opposed to falling backwards into snoretastic storytelling habits?
Thank the Soap Gods for Eric Martsolf. His drunk, boy-bitchy Brady Black salvaged the episode by sassing back at his daddy. John (Drake Hogestyn) really made a mess of his family, didn't he?
Wishful Storytelling: Why not have Brady and Theresa get married during a bender in Las Vegas? After a marathon session of boozing and snorting coke off of one another's body parts, Brady decides he wants to stay married to the nubile temptress!
As a wedding present, Brady offers Theresa the newly-vacated editor-in-chief position at Titan's Bella Magazine. Unbeknownst to Brady, Victor (John Aniston) has offered the job of president of Titan's media division to Jennifer — at Maggie's (Suzanne Rogers) insistence!
Then you could have Jennifer and Theresa squaring off at glam Titan industries, as opposed to that drab hospital. Theresa can even bring over Anne (Meredith Scott Lyn) as the publishing house's new veep of human resources!
Things really get crazy at the House of Titan, when Theresa proposes a spinoff magazine from Bella, focused on impossibly hot men. She christens the new vehicle Man Candy! Jennifer and Maggie are appalled.
Sexy, young Salemite hunks JJ (Casey Moss) and Ben (Justin Gaston) could be tapped to model for the rag — and satisfy insatiable trophy wife Theresa's sexual appetites, once a drug-addled Brady becomes impotent! Meanwhile, budding, young writer Will Horton (Guy Wilson) does his best Dominick Dunne/Graydon Carter impersonation by penning smart essays for both publications.
Will becomes the toast of the literati, much to Sonny's (Freddie Smith) dismay. Can their love affair survive Will being whisked off to New York, Milan, London and Paris to dine and dish with the most elite and horny gay style makers in the world? Will's uncle Eric (Greg Vaughan) could also go to work for Titan, creating brilliant photo essays for the Kiriakis family's periodicals.
This would also provide story for Sami and Kate (Lauren Koslow), as Countess Wilhemina and Mad World Cosmetics jockey for the best advertising placements in the Midwest's most relevant style bibles.
Watch the latest DAYS recap video after the jump!
To secure her shot at reuniting with first love Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan), Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) took drastic measures on Days of Our Lives. On Monday's show Daniel (Shawn Christian) found the letter detailing Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) drugging of Eric — which Nicole shredded!
Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) probably wishes someone had shredded all of those nasty, photoshopped images of her floating around the hospital. Someone must really hate and despise the PR whiz!
Jennifer's chief nemesis, Theresa (Jen Lilley), has been a bit preoccupied of late, what with all the time she's spending making goo-goo eyes at fellow substance abuser Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). Speaking of preoccupied, Abigail (Kate Mansi) and EJ (James Scott) can't seem to stay focused on all the questions Adrienne (Judi Evans) and Sami (Alison Sweeney) are respectively throwing at 'em. I guess the potential pitter-patter of little feet can distract a person!
