What Happened in Salem: Week of July 6th

Another week, another idiotic Will Horton manipulation…

A host of Salemites gathered near the bench in the park, under the mistaken impression it was a beach, for a summer picnic. Will brought Sonny and Ari on the pretense of family time, but what he really wanted was for Sonny to see Paul hanging out with Derrick. Because that’s how it works: you see someone you have lingering feelings for with a new guy, shrug your shoulders, and immediately recommit to your marriage. That, or you become jealous and it makes you want your ex even worse. Crackerjack work, Will!

    of all the people in salem that get stabbed, shot, locked in secret rooms, taken to foreign countries, get new faces, are possessed, have amnesia and dog knows WHAT else why oh why can’t any or all of this happen to Will???

    On Tuesday’s episode Sonny and Clyde were talking about Ben and Abigail moving in together and Clyde mentioned wedding bells. The exchange that followed was Clyde saying “men and women can still get married, it’s not just for your kind now.” And Sonny said “and, what kind is that?” And then they went to commerical. I don’t know if I drifted off, started to daydream, left the room or what but I missed the rest of that, if there was more to it. Did that conversation continue?

      It seemed to me that the whole Clyde conversation with Sonny was laying some groundwork that will help fuel the Victor/Clyde feud.

      • mykleraus Says:

        That’s what I took away from it. It felt a little like “Uh, we need to use these two actors/characters in this episode,” so they just sort of invented a scene with some fake drama to fill some airtime.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Sonny basically followed up with, “My kind???” and Clyde went on to explain that he supports gay marriage, but the world has changed and he’s still adjusting. It was sort of an interesting character beat, but they’ve had Clyde casually referring to Will and Sonny as one another’s husbands before, so it felt weird for it to come up months later. Then, when Clyde walked out, he made some vague, ominous comment about Sonny’s stabbing.

      • Jamie Says:

        Thanks! somehow, I missed that entire part of the episode. I must have left the room. I used to pause the DVR when leaving the room, these days…not so much.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I’m having the same issue lately. Certain storylines go by and at the end of the episode, I have no idea what (if anything) actually happened.

  4. underyourwing Says:

    that convo should have NEVER HAPPENED. reason enough to kill off that POS clyde…… + it made no fucking sense in the 1st place.

    • mykleraus Says:

      It was very strangely placed. I think they’re just throwing in random shit that will seem interesting without much clue as to what it’ll do for overall story.

  5. otherweb1 Says:

    Looks like things are going to work out for Stefano in “planting the DiMera seed.” Apparently, he needs a little more insurance than Johnny for carrying on the Dimera legacy.

    The whole Paige “scheme” was so completely ridiculous that it only could have been written by the old writers. Clearly there are other more interesting and well-written ways to have more fuel added to Eve’s fire for revenge on Jennifer then the ridiculous scene we had to suffer through.

    Can we get a screen shot of the absolutely assinine look on Will’s face when Sonny was watching Paul and Derrick play tennis? There should be some sort of collage made up of all of Will’s doofus faces!

    Grant it there needs to be something to create more tension between Eric and Nicole, and to drive the storyline of Eric and Nicole’s ultimate re-unification. I just don’t think Nicole and Daniel as a couple is the way to get there! But on the bright side, at least we have Daniel eventually getting burned to look forward too! 🙂

    Just when I thought Paige was going to be out of Salem for good, we now have to go through JJ taking the undercover assignment as a way of saving her from Kyle! But, I suppose if I can just ignore that Paige has anything to do with the storyline, it might make for some great stuff around JJ’s overall struggles with himself.

    Hopefully the Hope/Sierra/Rafe scenes were an indication of the new writers finally stepping in and taking control over the cheesy mess that has been made out of Sierra. Her character did a complete 180 from little bitch to the typical goofy Salem child. Not that the goofy salem child is tolerable, but at least better than how they were portraying her up to now.

      Will’s face! God. He does that stupid screwed-up mouth thing, like he just got a shot of lemon juice in the face or something. It’s his go-to for almost every emotion.

      I love bad little Ciara. It’s funny in a way Days doesn’t usually do. Her attitude gets me through some of those boring-ass Hope scenes when I otherwise wouldn’t care. I hope they don’t eliminate her edge when they age her. The third wheel stuff was cute, though.
