What Happened in Salem: Week of July 27th

For once, Nicole actually had a good week! Meanwhile…

Kayla informed Abigail that the paternity test, which she was going to have to wait three weeks for as of yesterday, can now be done “tomorrow.” Clyde threatened the lab tech to ensure that, no matter how the test actually turns out, the results will officially name Ben as the father. Chad got a reluctant Abigail alone and pleased his case, telling her that he loves her and lied to protect her. Abigail found herself feeling torn. Clyde presented Ben with a ring, which he said he had intended to give to Ben’s mother before Tammy Sue drove her off the road, and told him to use it to ask Abigail to marry him. Ben, being the brainless robot that he is, did just that.

Check out the full recap to see What Happened in Salem last week!

    First of all, that freaking flyer has GOT TO GO! Are we really going to have to see it laying around at every turn for the next 3 months??!!

    Second, HOW could anyone have been ok with writing a scene where Will is giving Abigail and Chad RELATIONSHIP ADVICE?! I couldn’t be bothered to really pay close enough attention to see if his advice was sound. But even if it was, it’s still an outrage because he’s an absolute tool in his own marriage working off his mother’s genes, yet suddenly out of nowhere he inherits his grandmother’s genes when it comes to advising others on their relationships?

    JUST when I thought the Edge of the Square set had been struck, which might mean we get the Pub back when the new producers are on board, almost everyone in Salem spends a night out at what is now being referred to as just The Edge. How do you not use a set at all for like 2 months (or was it longer) then all of a sudden have a scene there?

    The P/D/W/S scene at the Edge with the harrassers was so heartbreaking!!!! But aside from that, Paul and Derrek on the park bench was awesome! And it’s true what keeps being said by Sonny and Will… it was awesome to see them out with gay friends. I’m looking forward to more of that. And to answer the question, it was doofus Will who told Derrek to lie about being disowned.

    Don’t even get me started on Jennifer, as she now turns her bad parenting to actually allowing her 18 year old son to go undercover on a drug ring! And on top of that, she has the assinine bad judgement to commend him and saying what a noble thing it is. It’s noble to risk being shot??! How about counseling JJ on the many other safe and sensible ways he can help Paige. And btw Jen, if Paige is in danger, it’s just as much your fault as it is JJ’s and Eve’s, so how dare she call Eve the only bad parent here! And where is Dr. Dan in all of this … I can understand if the new writers just want to totally write him out of the Horton’s life, but again, it’s taking that huge leap because the history and character has been so about counseling JJ. And now all of a sudden when he’s undercover Daniel is no where to be found?

    btw, WHEN is True O’Brien going to be recast??!! She destroys every scene that has the potential to be good!

      Abigail and Chad actually listening to Will is kind of hilarious. Are they not aware of what an idiot he’s been lately?!

      I have two pieces of good news for you, though: we’re getting the Pub back this fall, and True O’Brien only airs for a few more weeks! 🙂

        i think the only thing A and C are really listening to and trying to deny is their hormones…..she is anyway…….you know she wants him….ben is a drip. he has to go.

    LOL at Ben the brainless robot. Wind him up and point him in a particular direction, and he does exactly as he’s programmed to do. I found his proposal unnecessary. He’s already committed to Abigail. I know it’s supposed to raise the stakes for her, but they are plenty high already. Besides, it makes it too similar to the other triangle, Daniel/Nicole/Eric, and they are plenty similar already.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I agree about the proposal. It feels forced and it highlights the parallels between the two stories. I guess it adds a concrete element, which they could have done with Abigail unsure if she should move in with Ben, too. That would’ve differentiated things a bit more.

      • underyourwing Says:

        why DID she love in with this pant load? i forgot…..

      • mykleraus Says:

        I truly have no idea. He was nice and had abs, I guess? They could’ve done more to show that, after the EJ debacle, she was retreating to something safe and non-threatening (or at least that’s what she thought). But it’s fallen flat from the get-go for me.

    “THAT’S NOT HIS GIRLFRIEND, THAT’S MY HUSBAND” in that awful, awful delivery…best line I’ve heard on TV so far this year.

    I don’t condone violence, especially not the hate-crime variety, but that whole fight went down and Will didn’t get hit even once???? Where’s the justice in that?

    I hope that Nicole and Eric stop talking about the heating duct soon, so I don’t have to hear them say “we almost made love” again. Blech. I know it’s daytime TV and they are limited in what they can say, but every time they say “making/made/make love”, I throw-up in my mouth a little.

    Kyle kind of reminds me of a younger, hotter, Eric Balfour. I dig it.

    Jennifer is way too old for that polka-dot Minnie Mouse dress. I think she alternates between Abigail’s and Alice’s closets when she’s getting dressed.

    Was it just me, or did Abigail look like a minister of some sort this week? That white collar around her shirt with the black jacket…

    • underyourwing Says:

      maybe she is secretly considering entering a convent? dog knows she maybe should…..she has more issues than vogue.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I was on the edge of my seat waiting for Will’s dumb ass to get punched in that mess. That line had me rolling, too!

      Strangely, “(almost) made love” sounds natural to me coming from Eric. Not so much from Nicole, the one-time porn actress who’s fucked half of Salem. And you mean to tell me they “almost made love” but she didn’t give him, like, half a handjob or something in there? It cracks me up how non-specific they are about all the sexual stuff.

      I think Kyle’s cute. He does sleazy well, too. I really don’t mind him.

      And yeah, I’ve seen a lot of comments about that collar!
