Today Days of our lives Summary: We start our day in Salem with Paulina “loosening Abe’s pillow”. She tries her best to be forthcoming and Abe wonders if something is wrong. Paulina is worried about him, but Abe says he’s fine. Paulina thinks they should postpone the wedding.
Flashback: Marlena tells Paulina that her secrets should give her a break because of the wedding.
Meanwhile, Lani wonders why Paulina asked her to be her honorary matron. Theo just wants to know what kind of chips she wants. Lani is less than amused. She just doesn’t understand why she should choose Chanel.
Chanel is upset in Horton Square that Johnny is keeping her waiting. He says he was caught for a possible tip. He ate cake with them and looked at their wedding pictures. Johnny believes that empathy makes him a good director. He also has a present for Chanel.
At Chez Weston, Ciara thinks Ben trusts Susan too much. Ben thinks it doesn’t change the fact that she sees evil about her upcoming child.
In the penthouse, Susan is busy with Ben and Ciara. MarDevil is through with Susan’s stupidity. She wants Susan to return to Roger in Memphis. Susanne refuses. She wants to protect Baby Weston. MarDevil grabs them, Susan turns around and says, “It’s you. You are the evil presence! “
Like sand through an hourglass. . .
In Horton Square, Chanel wonders what Johnny means by getting serious. He presents her with the costume and props she needs to play Celeste. Chanel doesn’t take him seriously, but Johnny says she has to take all of Celeste’s quirks seriously.
At Chez Weston, Ciara is not convinced of Susan’s vision. Who is this person who is trying to harm future baby Weston? She understands why Ben trusts Susan, but maybe not so much this time. Ben explains how much Susan and her visions helped him find her. At that moment there is a knock on the door. It’s Belle and Shawn Douglas. They have come to celebrate their upcoming blessed event. Shawn Douglas immediately notices that something is wrong. Ciara tries to explain rationally, but then delves into Susan Banks: The Miniseries.
Belle thinks Ben and Ciara should show Susan the door. Ben tries to explain why he trusts Susan. A self-righteous Shawn Douglas says Susan’s visions are vague and that she can make up anything to prove she is right. An equally self-righteous Belle refuses to listen and agrees with Shawn D. At this point, Ciara is even editing for Susan. Ben is annoyed and wants them to cover up.
To distract from his self-righteousness, Ben grabs drinks so they can toast the new baby. They all drink to how good Ben and Ciara will be as parents. Belle explains that she knows a little what Ciara might be going through.
On the other side of town, MarDevil tries to talk Susan down. How could she get Dr. Thinking Marlena Evans is just an evil presence? How could she say these things to a friend? Susan says she isn’t actually Dr. Marlena Evans is. She is the devil incarnate. MarDevil wants Susan to calm down. Susan thinks MarDevil isn’t even a person, it’s just a thing. At that moment, MarDevil reveals himself to a freaky but satisfied Susan. MarDevil has dealt with mental health issues before and isn’t here about Susan’s BS.
Susan hurries to get something out of her purse. . . It’s a huge cross. MarDevil is totally amused. Why is she wearing a cross? Susan said it was because of Ivan and Vivian!
Side note: I miss Vivian and Ivan.
MarDevil thinks Susan is stupid. She should never take on the devil. She knocks Susan down with the cross, and suddenly Paulina knocks.
Over at the university hospital, Paulina doesn’t understand how Abe could have thought she didn’t want to get married. Abe explains that nothing could stop him from marrying her. Next week they will stand up before God and everyone to make the covenant of life. Abe has wanted to be married to Paulina for a very long time.
In the lobby, Theo offers to speak to Chanel. Theo is so happy that they are brother and sister. Nothing could ever change that.
Lani goes in and sees Abe arguing over an unhealthy sandwich he wants to inhale. Lani is fed up with talking about food. Has Abe heard from Brandon? Nope. He’s on safari with Celeste.
Side note: Celeste!
Lani can’t even imagine Brandon and Celeste as friends. She continues to wonder how Aunt P. and Celeste will actually get along.
They begin to discuss the wedding, and Abe tells Lani how concerned he is about Paulina’s current state of mind.
Meanwhile, Chanel has put on her Celeste wig and is walking with Johnny, who is not really paying attention. You’re both using very interesting accents now. As Chanel continues, Theo arrives and is quite amused by the way his grandmother is portrayed by his former girlfriend.
Johnny shows up, excited to see Theo. He comments that once she learns the Creole accent, Chanel will be great.
Side note: Thanks, Theo!
More importantly, Theo wants Chanel to talk to Lani about his wedding.
In the penthouse, MarDevil opens the door and Paulina goes straight to the point of how to keep her secret. MarDevil thinks if she doesn’t tell Abe, her marriage is CLOSED!
Side note: I miss Celeste.
Paulina is so concerned about Theo and Lani and their relationship. At that moment Susan groans. MarDevil pretends she doesn’t know what Paulina is talking about. She examines and finds Susan on the floor. What do we have here? MarDevil bends down and picks up a BLACK CAT and introduces her as SUSAN!
Side note: Paulina said she had never seen buckteeth on a cat before!
Back at the university hospital, Chanel gets off the elevator and hands Lani the sweet treats she brought for Abe. Chanel is actually there to see Lani. She tells her everything is fine. Lani tries to explain how Paulina asked her to be her honorary matron, but then she stumbles upon a description of how strangely Paulina is acting.
Flashback: Chanel tells Paulina how much it hurts that she has chosen Lani as her patron of honor.
We start the end of our day in Salem with Belle and Shawn Douglas alone at Chez Weston. Apparently Belle suggested a new mother book and they ran to get it.
Side note: I was wondering if a scene was cut.
Belle thinks they should visit Marlena to find out how Susan is doing.
In the penthouse, MarDevil continues to pet a bellicose kitty Susan, while Paulina says she’ll keep her secret and leaves. MarDevil takes care of Kitty Susan again.
MarDevil decides that life with Kitty Susan is easier than it is with Human Susan. At that moment, Belle and Shawn Douglas arrive. You wonder where Susan is and why Marlena is keeping a cat. She explains that she found the cat in the hallway and is trying to leave it. Unfortunately, MarDevil was blocked by the self-righteous duo.
In the lobby of the university hospital, Chanel is again angry with Paulina for taking a special trip to ask Lani to be her honorary matron, which means it wasn’t so spontaneous.
Lani is just leaving when Paulina arrives. She wonders what Chanel is doing there. She doesn’t have to be surprised when Chanel leaves.
Theo and Johnny play cards in Horton Square and discuss their relationship with Chanel. Theo isn’t upset with Johnny and Chanel … but he would be upset to see Ben and Ciara …
Side note: can you guess what happens next?
Ben and Ciara enter … They all greet each other awkwardly. Theo explains that he looks after his father and attends his wedding … which happens if someone doesn’t kidnap the bride.
Side note: Theo is petty my style.
Ben gives Abe her best. Ciara explains that they have just come into town to buy a book. As expected, Ciara drops the book and Theo picks it up – a little perplexed by his newborn focus.
In the penthouse, MarDevil wants to bring Kitty Susan to the shelter. Belle worries that the kitten will be put to sleep. MarDevil basically says “them’s the breaks” and leaves a stunned (but self-righteous) Belle and Shawn Douglas.
