None of Yo’ Business!
So. This latest DiMera Enterprises board meeting.
First of all, who are the sick assholes who work at this company and sit on its board? Did ISIS not have any openings? Though I guess it might explain why they seem to be perfectly fine showing up for these meetings where people are constantly staging coups and shouting professional terminology like “You son of a bitch!”
The entire concept of this company never ceases to astound me. “DiMera Enterprises has always been defined by its vision,” says Kate — you know, like building an island that’s an exact replica of an American town, only with some potted palm trees and Tommy Bahama gear and stuff.
And that says nothing about the actual business procedures. Brilliant businesswoman Kate doesn’t do so much as a Google search on the CEO of the company she’s been given a tip to acquire (similar to how her dumbass son, Austin, once bought a company without ever realizing that his ex-wife was the CEO!), and some dude wanders into the room and says Mr. Shin texted him saying it was okay to vote on his behalf, and no one blinks an eye at reinstating an international supervillain — and person currently dodging a warrant for tax evasion! — as CEO. Sure, this all seems remarkably stable and normal.
That said, the history between Stefano and Kate, plus their individual dynamics with Chad and the added element of Victor’s involvement, went a long way toward selling this silliness. A scrappy Kate is a fun Kate, Victor’s going to hold Stefano to their deal, Stefano’s going to have to trust Chad to do some of his dirty deeds… that stuff all works for me. I wish someone had done some research/ever attended a business class to make this all feel a little more authentic, but there are fun layers to it, which is more than I can say for the other 80% of the show. And they actually worked a “It’s good to be back!” into Stefano’s dialogue. Look, I’m easy to please when Serena and Paige are nowhere near my screen!
