Here it is 2009 and I’m still blogging about Days of our Lives. Seriously DOOL has gotten so bad that I am hardly watching, well not watching at all between Chelsea/Max, Dan/Chloe, Melanie/Philip and all the horrors but I was just made aware about upcoming spoilers and I was astounded. I thought outloud I couldn’t make them sound worse. So now I’m gonna try, and you guess which are my fake ones versus the real spoilers (either way it’s painful, but not as bad as actually watching the show):
—Nick only wants Melanie to come to his sentence hearing, but Max insists he will go too. Stephanie goes with him while Philip shows up unseen. Melanie gives a statement supporting Nick and how she forgave him, but it may be for Philip’s benefit. Nick’s sentence is only going to be 2-5 years. Later, the Dimeras approach Melanie about selling them the rights to Nick’s project, but she doesn’t want to risk anything with Philip.
—Nick is found innocent through reason of insanity but must go to a mental institution. His sentencing also has Melanie, Stephanie, Philip, Max and Chelsea. Nick keeps trying to tell Chelsea goodbye, but the whole time she keeps eye snogging her Uncle who is staring at his other niece, who is staring at Philip who is staring at Melanie who is looking at a reflection of herself.
—John is with Charlotte for therapy when the attraction between them is so strong they can’t help themselves and have sex. Marlena comes in unannounced and is shocked. Seeing her staring at them shakes John’s memory up who now suddenly remembers everything and is back to the old John. Marlena still is upset but Charlotte insists this is a means of special therapy that produces extremely strong results. Marlena can’t argue with that so she and John head off to the sunset to go find Belle and Shawn so they can hear the good news.
—John continues to remember Marlena in random memories but Charlotte is not sharing. Eventually Charlotte’s intentions are clear as she attempts to kill Marlena using a poison which John interrupts but gets injected himself. He winds up paralyzed so he and Marlena leave town together so he can get therapy.
—Nicole decides that it’s not enough to steal another woman’s baby, she decides that woman must be Sami. Using sleuth like skills that escape the SalemPD, Nicole finds Sami’s hideout with Rafe and injects the pregnant blond with a special toxin guaranteed to force a twilight delivery. Though highly dangerous for the baby, Nicole successfully delivers Sami’s baby w/o her knowing she is there and takes off, naming the child, Pat, so the audience won’t be sure if it’s a boy or a girl.
—Nicole’s been meeting with Mia, a pregnant young girl who had agreed to give Nicole her baby, but insisted on meeting the father-to-be first. Nicole takes Mia over to the Dimera mansion for her to meet EJ, but they run into Tony who later told EJ who wondered what was up.

—Since Lucas nearly walked in on them, Chloe insists what happened before must never happen again. Later, at their engagement party, Daniel toasted Chloe and Lucas and Kate welcomed her daughter-in-law to be to the family. Alone with Lucas, Chloe wondered if their love could last. He assured her it would. Chloe warned Daniel – again – that nothing had happened between them, then they almost made love. Again. Kate almost walked in on them this time, which saddens the audience she didn’t so she could be exonerated in shooting them.
–Chloe decides that she is close to being in love with two men, or not in love at all. She has a dinner party where she informs both Daniel and Lucas she’s torn between them. Lucas erupts into anger and attacks Dan who’s hair protects him. Kate is angry but decides the best revenge is teaching them a lesson, she goes to find Brady and sleeps with him, erupting jealousies in Nicole who wasn’t expecting to feel this way.
