What Happened in Salem: Week of December 7th

Abigail’s nightmare came to an end, but Hope’s continued full-throttle…

Chad and Abigail escaped the burning bed with a surprising amount of ease, but not before Ben fled with the baby. He took him to a motel and then left him there, nestled in a pillow fort, to go get supplies. Lani and JJ headed to the Blue Room, correctly assuming that 72% of all action takes place there, and they got lucky when it turned out to be playing the role of Midwife Wendy’s (RIP) office. They found Ben stealing baby supplies and arrested him. Lani took him back to Salem, while JJ found Abigail and Chad near the burning cabin and was shocked to learn that she’d already had the baby. Back in Salem, a frantic Abigail questioned Ben to try and figure out where her son was, but he suffered a severe psychotic break (as opposed to the moderate one he had earlier that led him to kill several people) and wouldn’t stop babbling. She eventually ascertained that the baby might be at a motel, and after Roman alerted the authorities, Abigail was swiftly and somewhat anticlimactically reunited with her son. She decided to rename him Thomas Jack Deveraux.

    I may be the only one, but I would really like to see Abby and Chad make it and ultimately find out that Chad is Thomas’ real father. I think they are really sweet together and Chad has certainly proven his undying love for Abigail. Seems like she is finally ready to admit her love for Chad too. As for Ben, let’s just get rid of his character altogether! He became just a putrid, jealous, deviant man who did show the audience what to look for in domestic abusive relationships and how quickly they can turn deadly, but now that he’s been caught, why waste the salary on him? I think he was just faking his breakdown in the interrogation room anyway.

      I think they definitely will, eventually. They’ve done a great job making them a rooting couple.

      Ben has been surprisingly effective in this story. I like the idea of tossing him in jail and then having a crazy person ‘out there’ who can pop up to torture them down the road.

    i so agree about a and b and baby but……won’t happen. 😦
    as far as ben don’t we get to see him hanging in his jail cell? please?? he did a magnificent job of acting thru all this traumatic stuff no doubts……

    • mykleraus Says:

      The actor rose to the challenge. I was pretty impressed! I actually like the idea of Ben going to jail and being ‘out there’ to come back and torment Abigail down the road. All the big couples need people like that in their past.

    hope is a disturbing hot mess….. she needs xanax or valium or klonopin or a rubber mallet to the skull.

  4. underyourwing Says:

    after all her lamentations suffering et al i have a feeling hope is one step from being off the deep end of acting out-rageously insanely has just freakin HAD IT pissed off…..making her get nuts would be a good way to go…..think of the possibilities!!
