Taylor & EJ at the pier
EJ is all creepin’ up on Taylor as she’s about to toss Brady’s gun into the river/ocean/sea/pond/salt lake. He wants to know what’s in the bag.
“I saw something glinting in the moonlight.” For some reason she fesses up that it’s Brady’s gun and he fears “retaliation.”
EJ is mad because he (correctly) thinks she tipped off Brady.
Rage rage rage
She continues to chew him out for being a jerk. That whole EJ-got-Fay-Walker-killed thing. But she’s still in love with him. Groan.
He proposes marriage again but Taylor, for once correctly, points out asking for marriage is different than asking someone not to kill someone else.
Then she decides to give him the gun for some reason. She makes a subtle comment on gun policy by noting it’s not the only one in the world.
Wabi (Will & Gabi) and Sonny (Wasabi?)
Gabi says baseball sucks but Will, being captain of the baseball team and all, would LOVE to go with Sonny. When she’s at their wedding or “commitment ceremony” I predict a flashback to this moment.
“Don’t you remember the festival thing at Salem U, the poetry slam?” We can’t tell if Will is flushed or just tan.
This is awkward...
Tad the Homophobe walks in and suggests Sonny wants to have a sausage party. The guest list? Will.
“You and Sonny can go buy your peanuts and Cracker Jacks. I’m gonna pledge a frat and live in a house full of guys which totally isn’t gay, who won’t call me a homophobic idiot.” Or something.
“Every straight guy out there is jealous of you” because Gabi’s body is banging, Sonny tells Will. He hadn’t noticed.
While Gabi is wiping down the bar, Kinsey walks in and demands to know why Will hasn’t jumped into bed with Gabi.
Just like that Will plants a big kiss on Gabi, and he says he “really want(s) to be alone with Gabi tonight.”
Kinsey smiles a little too hard as they walk away. But she heads outside and tells Tad she’s got something for him….
Friends with bennies!
Nicole comes in to find Brady stunned and clutching his head from Taylor’s vicious hit to the back. The one thing they’re sure about? Taylor wouldn’t rat out Brady. But Nicole thinks EJ might actually be trying to change this time because he didn’t tell Stefano who was responsible – because there’d be no stopping the DiMera patriarch.
"This is why I drink."
“If there’s one sentence I hope I never hear for the rest of my life, it’s another EJ-besotted woman saying ‘I think he’s trying to change.’”
Quinn and Kate at the Sapphire Club
“You don’t make money from her arias, you make money from her being on her back.” But Q says he won’t let Kate mess with Lola… er, Chloe ever again.
Quinn and Lola at the Sapphire Club
Bad Quinn is back, suggesting Lola’s artistic career may have to take a back seat to her backside.
Kate and Gus at the Cheatin’ Heart
“The things we do for hate,” she says as she saunters to the bar and hits up Gus for a drink. “If there were a lady here.”
Turns out she’s recruiting him for business purposes.. She tries to tell Gus his loyalty has gone unrewarded… Gus hints Quinn is pushing him out of Vivian’s life. But he splits anyway. Kate vows to find out everything Gus knows about Quinn.
Nicole & Taylor at The Cheatin’ Heart
Taylor is eating olives and tells Nicole she gave the gun to EJ.
“I was trying to get through to him, to make him see he can’t continue to go through life like this!”
“After what you told him tonight, nothing is ever going to be OK!” Nicole replies.
Meanwhile, at the Kiriakis mansion….
Who is that knocking upon his chamber door? It’s EJ, Brady’s gun in hand.
He tells Brady to take it.
NBC is pushing this “Whitney” show hard. We predict cancellation by February 2012.
