Books and Worms

I should have seen this coming. I’ve been gloating about how flawless this show has been in terms of interesting, unexpected character interactions. Just like Sami crowing victoriously about all her troubles being behind her right before she got arrested again, I totally had it coming.

Jennifer and Nicole are in the same book club?! What kind of hot fuckery is this? I know that Nicole has done a lot to redeem herself for what happened last fall, and I don’t mind them being on civil terms or able to trade a quip every now and again, but this might be the stretchiest stretch that ever stretched.

Did she take Billie’s place? What, is it written in the Saylum Wimminz Buk Klub charter that, “at any time, no fewer than two (2) members must have been forced into drugs, pornography, and/or prostitution by their fathers”? (Adrienne’s got the first spot on lock, naturally.) Who the hell invited Nicole? Jennifer is the one she knows best of those women. I’m trying to imagine that conversation: “We get together and discuss books — not unlike the book you tried to have thrown at me when you lost your child!”

Are we going to find out that Kristen and Marlena have been gabbing about Anna Karenina offscreen?

Speaking of Kristen.. I couldn’t stay mad about the book club nonsense for long, not with that ending we got on Friday.

Kristen’s gonna pretend to be Susan! Call the coroner, because I am dead.

Though I’m starting to think the DiMeras’ problem isn’t so much being evil as it is being insane packrats. Has Kristen kept every random piece of old shit from every past scheme she’s ever pulled? Stefano just left boxes of her crap down there this whole time? (Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised, considering this is a man who once maintained a townhouse filled with mementos from his forays into art theft and brainwashing, but still.) Also — if Susan and Kristen impersonated one another around the time EJ was a baby, that means those teeth are roughly three decades old. At least rinse them off before you stick them in your mouth, woman! I know Stefano’s managed to revive a lot of dead people, but I’m not sure he can undo toxic mold poisoning.

    Nicole in the book club is the type of WTFery I just can’t handle.

    Adrienne was sexually abused by her father; I don’t recall that she was pimped out or drugged up. I think Adrienne’s was less sensational than all of the rest.

    E.J. NEEDS to see Kristen in the Susan costume.

      Good point about Adrienne. She definitely had the carefully done version of that story. I guess Billie’s was set up well, too… and Nicole’s was basically a cartoon.

      There has to be an EJ/”Susan” run-in coming. This should be good!

    STOP trying to make the book club a thing!! I don’t mind at all if Nicole and Jen become buds because they have a lot of chemistry together as actors, but do we need to be force fed this idea that they all sit around reading books from the 1800’s?

    And I’m now convinced that Kristen and Marlena are part of the Barrette of the Month club, where middle aged women style their hair like little girls. Honestly, I thought they were going to pan down and we’d see Kristen in a tulle skirt, ruffled socks and tap shoes.

      LOL at Barrette of the Month Club. I really hated Kristen’s hair like this. And you mean to tell me she went home from that super-stressful school opening and straightened her damn hair? I can barely get myself into the shower sometimes!

      I just think it’s amazing that the book club happens entirely offscreen. Like, what else are these people doing that we don’t hear about?!

  3. […] woman she thinks she should be for Eric, even though she felt left out and weird. Even the idiocy (Jennifer and Nicole gabbing about the book club in that total WTF moment) turns out to be headed somewhere lately! Does this mean it’s going […]
