What Happened in Salem: Week of August 10th

Everyone in Salem seemed to be biding their time until the writing switch kicks in…

Abigail continued to feel the same way about her engagement to Ben that I feel when I have a week’s worth of Days of Our Lives stocked up on my DVR (“This could be great… right? Right?!”), only she doesn’t get to chug a bottle of wine to make it all better, on account of her pregnancy. Paranoid about Chad, Ben suggested to Abigail that they get married quickly and then leave Salem for someplace they could buy a house, like… Santa Monica — you know, someplace where real estate is affordable.

    Ben and his “Silicon Beach” trip…..please….. can’t they use a real town here? there are plenty to choose from..

    Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Gatos, Los Altos, Sunnyvale…..my town! Actually that sounds like a perfect Soap name for a town…Sunny-vale…. how about Whichestertonfieldville?

      “Silicon Beach” is actually being used as a term for a stretch in Santa Monica where tech start-ups are popping up, but I read a lot of entertainment/tech news, and I haven’t seen it used in mainstream media. It felt way too insider-y for Days, let alone Ben, who I’m not sure CAN read. Mentioning Silicon Valley broadly would’ve made much more sense.

    btwayski ben can’t buy them a house…..anywhere….he expected his slime ball annoying ‘i’m a bad guy you better not mess with’ father to buy it for them….

      That was so ridiculous to me! Abigail actually had a normal response like, “Um, we have a studio apartment IN SALEM” and he just went on about how his dad would get them a house in L.A. WTF?!

    I was seriously perturbed that they sort of redeemed Sarena the Shrew just bc she did what any normal do who took CPR and BLS courses and/or could google stroke symptoms and F.A.S.T. on a smart phone.
    Ultimately, I think the overture for Paige’s departure has been underway for weeks now. Paige’s association w/ Kyle as well as the fact she is careless and imprudent in the way she’s running her mouth will lead to her demise or desperation to flee for her own safety. If Paige is not killed/hurt in the crossfire, I think Kyle will turn into a psycho stalker when/if she tries to distance herself from him. For someone who is supposed to be so smart, Paige behaves like an total imbecile. Also, it’s obnoxious how much of hypocrite she is–Paige is averse to drugs however she dates a dealer; she tells JJ to stay out of her life yet she butts into his business by running tattling to Jen using Abie’s wedding a cover to validate her concern(s). Additionally, there is another layer is added with the bug Eve planted at Jen’s.

      It’s so clear where this Paige/Kyle thing is headed. I’m at least vaguely interested, for once.

      Paige really has flipped out completely, though. Finding out about JJ and Eve actually made her go crazy. I have a feeling this is going to get pretty dark pretty fast…
