What Happened in Salem: Week of May 9th

After a bizarre and yet totally predictable explanation…

Aiden was hauled off to jail, where he told Hope his story, though he lied that Andre had switched him with the double much earlier. Roman, Rafe, and Hope — three people who have been kidnapped and replaced by DiMera doppelgangers — found it impossible to believe Aiden’s story about having been kidnapped and replaced by a DiMera doppelganger. A DNA test proved that he was the real Aiden Jennings, so the police were forced to release him.

    Hope is married to Aiden but with Aiden claiming that the switch happened right after he proposed then she shouldn’t she think she is married to the dead imposter? I swear the writers have gone out of their way to make this whole thing more confusing and complicated than it should be.

  2. ADW Says:

    OK I had to laugh or wonder about some minuscule details, it was a coping mechanism to get me through this ridiculous Aiden body double twist.
    -Aiden’s Wilson the Volleyballesque companion was that dead bird, umm wouldn’t that animal have rotted with in 6 months?
    -The place he was held captive was Oklahoma and he hitchhiked on Rt 69 LOL 😂
    – I was guessing perhaps somebody owed the Dimera’s a favor because yes, Stefano and Andre lost quite a bit of money after Sami and on the verge of foreclosure on the mansion.
    -I assume Aiden didn’t leave home without his American Express card because he was able to clean up and change clothes.
    -If Aiden thought Hope was killed, why did he go straight back to her house? I assume he learned Hope was alive from a date at the bottom of the family photos prior to seeing Hope with Rafe as he hid.
    -Why would Hope be so thoughtless and moronic to leave a spare key under the welcome mat?
    -Why was finding Chase, his son and WTF was happening following hearing of the rape not Aiden’s first priority?
    -I wanted to know how/where Andre found Aiden’s doppelgänger, I was thinking Aiden actually had a twin brother and they hated each other. As Andre stuffed Aiden in the trunk he stated, “I will take good care of your brother.”
    -I’m confused as to why they decided to bring Aiden back this convulted way but, it sort of works for some unanswered questions

    You are so right about Roman and John being victims of body doubles by way of Stefano. Also, we all know Andre made himself look/sound exactly like Tony for his own diabolical schemes. It’s iratating how the writers seem to get lazy and overlook key facts and history.

    • Shea Says:

      I am pretty sure that Andre when Andre stuffed Aiden in the trunk he said he was “going to take good care of your BRIDE, and you too.” I have watched the clip a dozen times and honestly it sounds like which ever one you think it is but watching Thaao’s mouth I really think it was BRIDE and not brother. And if it had been Aiden’s twin brother wouldn’t they know that since they checked Chase’s DNA against both Aiden and the dead guy?

      I am pretty sure that Stefano is the one that made Andre look like Tony but their whole back story has been retconned so many times I don’t even know/care anymore

      • mykleraus Says:

        I heard it as “bride,” too, which at least makes sense. I think I might be even more irate if they gave Aiden a random twin brother (who was happy to go along with this plan) in the course of this silliness.

        I believe the original backstory was that Stefano had his nephew, Andre, made over in Tony’s image as part of one of the various early-80s serial killer storylines. But yeah, they’ve retconned that to hell and back now. It’s probably impossible to untangle.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I’m SO confused as to why Aiden went back to Hope’s house. (And don’t get me started on the spare key outside.) He thought she was dead! That seemed like kind of a big moment for him to find out, no? And they didn’t show it. He either found out on his way back to Salem or when he saw her in the flesh, but either way, they didn’t play it.

      I had the same concern about the bird, too. Wouldn’t that have gotten… diseased?

  3. ADW Says:

    PS Aiden didn’t even go “say what” or even raise an eyebrow when Hope exclaimed, “no you are dead Bo killed you!” I don’t recall the real Aiden Jennings being informed Bo returned to Salem.
