Channel your inner Bo/Roman/John and say it with me: “The damn DiMeras!”
So Stefano has the razor that Bernardi was going to use on Rafe. Of course Stefano has the razor. He has NASA’s latest top-secret technology, reproductive material of everyone who’s ever vaguely irritated him, Amelia Earhart, and probably Fay Walker’s cameo. Why not the damn razor?
While it might not have been the most shocking reveal of all time, the scenes themselves were incredibly satisfying. Joe Mascolo and James Scott’s performances were spot-on, the lighting in the mansion was actually dramatic, and I actually found myself appreciating the way that they’ve made Stefano and EJ enemies. For the first time, it seemed to have some real purpose, and it’s going to create story moving forward.
In other villainous news, Chad won his (incredibly boring, slow-motion) race against Cameron when he managed to slip his Junior Phoenix past her Golden Circle… only to reveal (well, to himself and us) that he’s lying about the brain tumor diagnosis!
(I like how this acknowledgement caused him to magically become villainously greasy, by the way.)
Color me… maybe not stunned, but at least pleasantly surprised. This twist definitely adds some heft and intrigue to this Ambien of a love triangle. The only thing I don’t like is that it implies we’re supposed to be rooting for Abigail and Cameron, which, bleh. But at least now there’s the possibility of something non-snooze-inducing happening along the way.
