Perhaps I’m nonetheless using excessive on having lastly bid farewell to indicate’s supernatural components, however for essentially the most half, I’ve been having fun with the tales these days. From the Lucas/EJ and Sami/Belle conflicts heading our method, to Abigail’s horrifying dying, this was a robust week — even when we did get some dropped story threads!

The Feud We’ve Been Ready For

Sure, sure and sure to lastly seeing the actual Sarah and Gwen go at one another. Sarah unleashed her claws after per week of absorbing Xander’s a number of flings whereas she was gone. It’s arduous to not suppose she wasn’t simply going after Gwen, but in addition taking out a few of her frustration over her beau’s marriage and near-marriage.

Proper now, Gwen is fairly crushed down, however it is a feud that I’m trying ahead to particularly since she’s about to lose her different sparring accomplice in Abigail! Sibling rivalries are nice and all, however there’s one thing particular about arch-enemies born out of a romantic triangle.

The Second We’ve Been Dreading

This complete week has been setting us up for the dying we’ve been fairly positive was coming however had been hoping wasn’t: Abigail’s! However this morning, we obtained affirmation that Abigail actually is a goner and Friday ended along with her physique! Every thing from Chad and Abby’s baby-making makes an attempt to Susan telling the cussed reporter that curiosity kills the cat has been main us right here. And although we don’t have a big record of suspects, this week gave us a wrathful Gwen (RIP, ugly mug), a vengeful tooth fairy Leo (if he isn’t killed by Sonny subsequent), and a determined, drunk Lucas.

Extra: Now could be the time for this alum’s comeback

Between the marriage implosions and Chad spilling Lucas’ kidnapping secret to Abigail, it looks like each components of “Chabby” have carried out their share in hastening her dying. I’m in no way saying she deserves it, however I’ve a sense when Chad lastly learns who does the deed, he’ll be wrestling along with his personal guilt over her homicide.

Killing her with as a lot as I’ve been loving “Chabby” these days is a blow, nevertheless it’s been barely softened by studying it was a sensible determination with Marci Miller leaving. This, not less than, goes to ship her off with a wholesome dose of heartbreak and drama. However, ugh, they actually having been hitting all the appropriate notes as a pair for months — which I assume was the purpose to drive her dying dwelling. That’s simply sensible writing.

Love Is Messy

I like that Chanel informed Allie and Johnny off, as a result of they had been getting method too entitled and demanding. Sure, it’s your hearts at stake and that’s one thing to not be taken evenly, however Chanel has been put in an unimaginable state of affairs and it’s going to take time for her to work by it. It’s a disgrace, although, that Tripp gained’t be part of this equation anymore, seeing as how we simply obtained information that he’s on his method out.

Now, does that imply Chanel would possibly find yourself selecting Allie? It’s not like Tripp and Johnny would hook up in the event that they had been each the odd males out, so Tripp wouldn’t have to stay round. Simply my musing. However that will surely add gas to the EJ/Lucas fireplace that retains flaring up. EJ would probably get extra upset at his son dropping, out than Lucas would if Allie was left within the chilly. Perhaps. Lucas hasn’t been all that steady these days.

Throwing Down

It’s all the time a very good time seeing Lucas and EJ going at one another. And figuring out that this time, Lucas is the larger hazard added an entire new dimension to their feud. However seeing them provide condolences to one another for his or her youngsters possessed by the satan was so blasé, it was simply weird.

I’m nonetheless unsure how I really feel about this flip for Lucas. As Roman stated when requested for his marriage blessing, Lucas has all the time been such a optimistic, wholesome affect in Sami’s life. Till now. Kate referred to Sami’s kidnapping as “a boneheaded factor,” which makes me suppose the present’s actually making an attempt arduous to not make him a villain, however I’m not shopping for that. Kidnapping a girl and holding her hostage for months just isn’t “boneheaded,” it’s calculated and merciless.

The Drawback With EJ

After I discussed final week how a lot I used to be having fun with EJ and Belle collectively, a fan identified how disturbing it’s for Belle to embrace her sister’s rapist. And actually… they’ve a degree. EJ’s repeated assault of Sami (not simply his personal rape of her, however his function in changing Rafe in her mattress) has all the time been an issue with “EJami” themselves.

“My condolences for the newborn being born alive. What? Am I not alleged to say that out loud?”

A part of what I like about Belle and EJ is that they appear to be good for one another and in EJ’s case, maybe it might assist him grow to be a greater particular person. However… OK, yeah, that occuring with Belle is problematic. Then once more, she’s not unaware of her actions, as she made clear to John this week that there’s part of her that’s blissful to get revenge on Sami with EJ. When Sami does come again, it’s going to get ugly.

As for EJ, he’s not a very good particular person. He’s not Ben, and he hasn’t tried to show his life round. He’s a morally doubtful character who will probably all the time do horrible issues combined in with good issues. We had been all forcibly reminded of that this week when he voiced what ought to have been the unstated to Belle perhaps one of the best factor that might occur was Shawn’s child dying.

As a substitute, in fact, we obtained the other.

Bouncing Child Boy

I wasn’t anticipating the newborn to return this shortly. I actually thought, if something, Jan was faking her misery. Nope! She went into early labor, they usually needed to ship the newborn earlier than Marlena might barely begin Jan’s “rehabilitation.”

Her interesting to Marlena that everybody else will get an opportunity to grow to be higher, so why is she completely different was legitimate, and it’s one we’ve raised too. But it surely’s a degree that the present has constantly written to be, as Jan put it, “bull.” She’s completely different as a result of she is. She doesn’t need redemption, she simply desires Shawn.

It’ll be fascinating to see how (if in any respect) a child modifications her, however now the present’s going to need to go to extra makes an attempt at bending over backwards to elucidate her staying out of jail since she doesn’t require bedrest anymore. That excuse was flimsy sufficient, however I’m guessing they’re now going to go along with her being too weak to return or one thing after that early labor. Cue eye roll.

Stray Ideas

• Susan might be over-the-top, particularly when paired with the supernatural, however she will nonetheless get fun out of me, like when EJ and Belle walked into the room to search out her stroking the wall.

• Marlena’s mixture of disgust, disapproval and disappointment on seeing Shawn feeding Jan was perfection. The look on her face stated all of it, however I appreciated her, “I do know Jan’s on bedrest, however I feel she’s completely able to feeding herself.”

• I don’t suppose that is how remedy works. There’s a transparent battle of curiosity with Marlena as she’s outright hostile along with her affected person. I’m not saying she’s flawed to really feel that method… however I really feel like agreeing to deal with Jan is an enormous physician/affected person moral no-no.

• No Eric/Nicole/Rafe or Lani/Paulina/Abe this week. I do know you possibly can’t get everybody’s tales in each day, however I want they wove in touches right here and there, so we don’t simply drop threads per week or extra at a time.
