Going to the Blue Room and We’re…

This week, Kate Roberts joined an, um, elite group of Salemites.

Actually, it might just be her and Doug: people who have married both a parent and child. Doug married Addie and then Julie, and Kate — who has already bagged a father and son in bed (Stefano and EJ), possibly twice if we grant her and Eduardo some offscreen sex — has now married both Stefano and Andre. And if there’s anyone who deserves to be married to a two-time serial killer, it’s certainly Kate. Congrats?

This marriage is beyond contrived, though. The board of DiMera Enterprises, which was happy to have international supervillain Stefano DiMera as its head for years, cannot possibly abide “mentally unstable” Andre as CEO, and they’re ready to disband the entire company one day after its current CEO has been announced as missing. Meanwhile, Kate — who has been the CEO of said company previously — cannot possibly be trusted to do the job unless she has a piece of paper saying that she’s married to a DiMera, because, uh, reasons?

Whatever. At least it gave us this, which is potentially the most insane wedding ensemble in Salem history.

I still don’t get why it was any skin off this judge’s back whether this was a “legitimate” marriage or not. It isn’t like they’re trying to defraud the government. Let these two old psychopaths get married and be out of the dating pool.

Technical note: what’s with all the references to and jokes about how many times Kate has been married? I count four (Curtis, Victor, Roman, and Stefano), which is a lot for a normal person but pretty standard, even low, for someone in Salem. She hasn’t even had that many botched wedding attempts. I expect better barbs from a salty queen like Andre.

And then you had Abe and Hope receiving the major shock of seeing their son and granddaughter, respectively, doing the deed in a video. Which is, of course, upsetting, and as a (grand)parent, I would’ve wanted to talk to them about it, too. I could’ve done with a little more acknowledgement of the gray area that it isn’t some morally reprehensible act to film sex, provided everyone involved is consenting, but that there could be unintended consequences. However, this is Salem, and it’s only positive if it’s MAKING LOVE to the strains of an affordable, breathy ballad and happens in a montage of sheets and bare legs, so no real surprise there.

Also, will someone please bring up the fact that this is a horrible sex tape, filmed through the leaves of a hotel plant and with the camera angled in such a way that it’s really just a makeout tape? If Jade is gonna make a career out of violating people’s privacy like this, let’s get her in touch with whomever filmed that multiple-angle, wide-lens, clear-as-day video Kristen made of her assault on Eric.

    I know I shouldn’t live in the past but The Blue Room is where we hold trials and weddings now? In front of 1 extra? Pretty show these shows are going to be filmed in front of green-screens…

    • mykleraus Says:

      The green screen might be a good idea, honestly!

      My thing with the blue room is: if you need to use a single set for so many different things, can you just make it a normal square room with a normal door and indistinct wall paint? It’s such a distinctive room that it’s impossible to ignore.

      DaysFan28 used to put links up on their twitter to view full episodes. I think they now post them in their facebook group (which you have to join to get access to) but it might be worth looking into if you really want to watch this crap. 😛

      • mykleraus Says:

        Yeah, that’s where I’ve gotten them from time to time. It’s worth looking into… mostly for when the new writing starts and you actually might be upset to miss an episode. 😉

    • mykleraus Says:

      Ahhhhhhh, that’s so annoying! WTF.

    • Fluffysmom Says:

      Have you tried to watch on the NBC app? I’ve watched that way a few times. Watching on my phone definitely isn’t ideal but it’s an option.
