Well, it looks like Jen got hooked on painkillers in, what, a day?
This reminds of when my dad fell and cracked a rib, and after taking one Vicodin the first day, demurred taking another. “You know, they’re habit forming,” he said. I told him he wasn’t going to get addicted after one pill, but now, clearly, I’ll have to tell him I was wrong.
I wish it had taken a bit longer for Andre to figure out where Stefano’s body was. As it is, it makes Rafe (with his supposedly super crime scene cleanup skills) look like an inept moron. Why, oh why, is he driving past the warehouse and slowing down? Twice?
Speaking of Rafe, can someone tell me why Ciara, after losing a stepfather and father in quick succession, is so eager to throw Hope into Rafe’s arms? There were a few signs around the bicentennial that Ciara had a crush on Rafe, and I think that would have been a better plot.
To me, the most intriguing part of the show was Chad. At this point, just about the only thing that could pull Chad back into the Dimera orbit is Stefano’s illness or death. And they’ve done the “Stefano collapses and the children rally to his side” plot a few too many times. This is more interesting. I really liked how Chad dismissed Andre’s theories, but still went over to see Hope. He probably told himself it was just to warn Hope, which he did, but there was real concern there too. And this seems perfectly crafted to put Chad and Abby on opposite sides: Abby defending Hope’s actions, and Chad loving his father in spite of it all.
Just an FYI: Mama and Papa Pickford are coming to town for a few days, so I’ll catch up with you all probably on Tuesday. Have a great weekend!
