Salem Spectating

Marlena’s face when Ciara told her she wants to be a psychotherapist was pretty perfect.

“Oh, honey! Robots can’t be therapists!” See?

I was trying to get a screenshot of Ciara’s reaction so I could comment on how ridiculous it is that a teenager would be so excited about an internship at a mental hospital, but this was the most she gave me. Case closed.

In other news, I’m so bored by most of these mash-up episodes (seriously, are they just slapping random scenes together until they have 38 minutes of footage?) that I paid an inordinate amount of attention to the food being eaten at the Brady Pub on Tuesday…

Claire, who looks adorable and also like she is capable of human emotion, seems to have opted for a Greek plate of some kind. I can see pita bread, hummus, and some olives, which doesn’t seem like much of a dinner, but I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt that she already finished the salad portion. Her mother, however…

…appears to be eating a sliced tomato with sauce dripped over it, with some spinach leaves on the side? It’s good to know that Belle’s meal selection sucks as much as everything else about her.

I actually found the scenes of her and Shawn telling Claire they’re back together were cute, although it occurs to me that these two haven’t really solved their problems at all. They just restated them, said they wouldn’t do bad stuff again, and remembered they were in love a while back. Sounds like a great foundation for a marriage!

Also a solid foundation: getting matching haircuts for your engagement photo shoot!

I really enjoyed Lucas’s proposal and Adrienne’s acceptance, though it did all feel so random and dropped into the episode. They did a decent job of giving it all some context, with the talk about how they’ve both been hurt and had failed marriages in the past but they want to give happiness one more go. Frankly, I like both characters well enough and am just relieved to see someone be happy for five minutes, so I’m going with it.

    Caroline should have pulled out her old go-to… Wanchai Ferry Frozen Dinners!

    Today I see Paul is going to be a PI now! Nothing says low-profile investigation like the famously-out baseball star/model!

    • Fluffysmom Says:

      The Wanchai Ferry product placement was hilarious. I think that’s what Sami’s kids were eating when they were always hanging out at the Pub.

      • mykleraus Says:

        I just love that the dialogue is basically, “I know you just shot your fiancé in the head, but this frozen Chinese food will fix it!!!” Also that the proprietor of a restaurant was serving frozen food…

    • mykleraus Says:

      That Wanchai Ferry thing is honestly one of my favorite Days scenes EVER. It’s just absolutely bonkers in every way. I show it to far too many people.

    didn’t they do one on some feminine product or something also? i got the sads when they were doing this shit…..

    Ciara deciding that she wants to become a psychotherapist was the most random thing.. Ugh. Of course it’s just a contrived way to put her back into Chase’s orbit. And Paul suddenly deciding that he wants to become a private investigator. Of course it won’t amount to anything interesting, I’d totally forgotten that John was even running some “PI firm”. He’s never onscreen! On the bright side, the Chad/Abby storyline got really interesting, but this was Kate Mansi’s last airdate so I guess she’ll just be “missing” for three months until the recast.

    I’ve kind of liked the Chloe and Deimos interaction just because it’s interesting/unexpected, and I’m liking Chloe much more now that she’s not so obsessed with Daniel. Plus maybe this will quickly take the focus away from this dumb fake murder storyline. Although the idea that Nicole might have feelings for Deimos = UGH. I hope that they don’t try to set up some horrid romantic relationship between those two, I have no interest in that.

    • mykleraus Says:

      Abigail being “on the run” should be weird. She’s not going to try and be with her kid? She’ll still be batshit crazy after the recast? I thought her escape was fun, but leaving her to recuperate for the summer wouldn’t have been the worst idea.

      I’m not hating Chloe and Deimos together, aside from the fact that she should in no way be trusting anything this man says, but she’s generally been an idiot, so it’s consistent. She does seem vastly more likable this time around.

      The thing about Ciara’s new “job” is… don’t they need to do background checks before people get hired to work with mental patients? She was convicted of a crime like a week ago!
