Taking Care of Business

“Welcome to today’s meeting of the Salem Bicentennial Committee!

“First thing on our agenda: recounting the recent struggles and miseries of current and former committee members! In case anyone missed it, Jennifer had to step down from the board of the Horton Center because she and her son have been accused of dealing drugs. Sucks, huh? Oh, and if you hadn’t heard, Kayla’s surly teenage son and the love of her life who walked out on her are both back in Salem! How’s that feel, Kayla? Pretty shitty, we’re sure.

“Great! Now on to happier matters. Aiden proposed to Hope! We have no idea how she feels about this or how she responded, but it seems like their wedding would be the perfect centerpiece for our town’s bicentennial. What else would the people of Salem want other than to celebrate their town by watching two random people get married? What’s that, Hope? You didn’t say yes?! Oh dear. We’ll have to find some other way to make an event about the town all about us. Hmm. Surely Marlena will be up to the challenge.

“Let’s see, let’s see… Oh, we’re having a zillion more of those flyers printed so that there will be no way you won’t randomly find one lying around, no matter which of the eight places in town you visit.

“Guess that’s it. We can dismiss our most senior member, Caroline, who suffers from Alzheimer’s and was released from the hospital just yesterday after suffering a stroke. You’re good to drive, Caroline, right? Okay, great! See ya later!”

    So Brady-Horton.

    “Did you hear about Serena? And I hear she didn’t have Life Insurance. Poor thing. That’s why Doug and I called Colonial Penn. It was so easy!”.

    I loved that scene because Julie and Maggie were just like your gossipy old aunts, talking over everyone’s business. Julie looked great in that blue suit!

  4. fluffysmom Says:

    Why does the whole town even know Aiden proposed when Hope hasn’t said yes?

    Colonial Penn…too funny!

    It’s good to see the ladies getting together to gossip and plan events and weddings.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Yeah, I love seeing scenes where characters just get together and talk about stuff that’s going on!

      I thought it was really weird that everyone knew Aiden proposed. I mean, I could see Julie pulling a Mrs. Kravitz and peeping in the windows to spy, but still…

  5. ADW Says:

    Hope is probably reluctant to get engaged bc of Bo and the flashbacks confirmed it. I don’t even think Bo received the divorce papers.

    Speaking of making other occasions about them, Abbie mentioned she wants Christmas wedding. The time-honored Horton tree trimming to be followed by Abbie waddling down the aisle at St. Luke’s looking a lot like Frosty the Snowman to exchange vows with the guy she doesn’t love, oh boy I can hardly wait 😜

    • mykleraus Says:

      Yeah, is their divorce even legal?! She sent him a damn letter.

      That’s exactly what a Christmas wedding would wind up being. Better than their plan to get married on a weekday, I guess…

      • Dylan Says:

        She sent it to his “last known location”, I doubt that he was still there when it arrived. Poor guy probably doesn’t even know that she divorced him.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Yeah! I know she was hurt, abandoned, and also angry on Ciara’s behalf, but it seemed sooooo clear that Bo wouldn’t even be aware they were divorced. Thank goodness they’re remedying it all with this story.
