Happy Monday! ☀️
I have this horrible, sinking feeling that today is just going to be absolutely miserable. I’m never Will-friendly so keep that in mind.
At WilSon’s, Will “swears” that he isn’t writing an article about Dr. Myers. Yes, please keep lying, William. It’s so the best strategy. *rolls eyes* He tells Sonny that he suggested the idea to Zoe, but insisted to her that he cannot write it because he’s WilSon’s therapist. We’re like 15 seconds in today and I already want to throw things. That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the hour. Will contends that he was so impressed with the good doctor after their first session that he suggested the article to Zoe. Sonny confronts Will with the truth; the he went to Zoe with the idea before their first session. S: “…that’s just another lie.” Yep, pretty much, lovebug.
W: “Sonny, this feels like I’m on trial. What’s the big deal?” (I WANT TO PUNCH HIS FACE. NOT JUST FOR LYING, BUT BECAUSE HE THINKS HE’S SOOOO GOOD AT IT AND THAT SONNY IS AN IDIOT, WHO WILL JUST BELIEVE WHATEVER HE SAYS.) S: “You don’t think lying is a big deal?” Will explains that he wasn’t lying. Sonny, pack your shit & leave. Will is now acting like Sonny is insane. I hate Will so much. S: “You were there! All he talked about was our future! He didn’t care what happened before we came to see him!” W: “Maybe that’s the way he works.” S: “Maybe that’s the way you wanted him to work.” Oooooh, good one, Sonny. How can a therapist help you if they don’t know why you’ve come to see them? Lol.
W: “So now you’re saying I tried to influence our therapist. You actually think I’d do something like that?” YES! BECAUSE YOU DID, YOU PRICK. OMG I’m so angry, I might cry. S: “I’m beginning to wonder if there’s anything you wouldn’t do, Will.” (Me too.) Will says he’s trying to “hang onto [their] marriage.” Why? Sonny asks the same question. S: “Why are you so desperate to hang on to me?” I don’t know. I love Sonny, but I can’t understand why Will is so insanely desperate.
W: “Damn it, Sonny. I am not desperate. I’m in love with you.” S: “You have a funny way of showing it…You jumped at the chance to go to Los Angeles with your mom.” W: “Her husband had just died! She needed my help.” (Cut the crap, Will! You wanted to be rich and famous. You were over EJ’s death just as quickly as it happened and from what we know about your LA trip, it didn’t sound like you were really helping Sami at all.) S: “We both know that’s not why you left. You went out there to be a big Hollywood writer. And when it didn’t work out for you, you ran home and then you lied about it.” W: “I came back because I missed you.” (To steal Sonny’s line, you had a funny way of showing it.) Will insists that he wanted Sonny to come with him and that if the screenplay had been picked up he would’ve come back to beg Sonny some more. S: “You’re lying to me. And you’re lying to yourself. Before you left, you told me our live together was boring. And ever since you’ve been back all we’ve been doing is arguing. And then you slept with Paul to get a good story.” Yep, that’s how I see it too.
W: “My God, Sonny! How many times do I have to say it?! I didn’t sleep with Paul just to get the story! It happened!” S: “‘It just happened,’ I know! And it didn’t mean anything, right?” W: “It didn’t. At least, I didn’t ask him to marry me.” S: “Then why did you sleep with him?” To get the story! He left that conversation with Kate willing to do literally ANYTHING to get the story out of Paul. I said it back then and I’m saying it now. Will is a disgraceful, unethical writer. And is he seriously throwing the proposal in Sonny’s face again???? I shouldn’t be surprised because it’s really the only card Will has to play. But jfc, why should Sonny apologize for proposing to Paul 5ish years ago??? Does Will want Sonny to do penance for every guy he ever fucked too? This is so ridiculous!
S: “If you cared so much about our marriage, how could you sleep with Paul? How couldn’t you see you were risking everything we had?” Will says he wasn’t thinking. S: “Did you think I’d be fine with you cheating on me?” W: “I thought he would leave town and then you wouldn’t find out-” S: “And what? I wouldn’t care?” Oh goody, pathetic, whiney Will is here now. He blabs on about Sonny pointing out all of his failings. Sonny gets to point out the fact that Will cheated on him as many times as he wants. Especially when Will has never truly shown any remorse about his betrayal. He’s only ever been upset about getting caught. Yes, let’s blame Sonny again for your infidelity, Will, because that makes perfect sense. I will I could smack him. WHAT IS HAPPENING???? Why are you talking about Sonny working so much??? Why are you bring up Chad????? These are all just distractions and diversions from the point of this conversation!!! Will, STOP IT. You are talking NONSENSE. W: “Do you have any idea how it feels to have a husband that thinks that I’m not at his level? It feels like crap. And you know what you do when you feel like crap? You go and you…” S: “You what? You sleep with Paul?” W: “Yeah.” S: “Oh my God. He wasn’t the only one, was he? You slept with someone before Paul, didn’t you?” OMG this is a conversation they should’ve had 6 months ago. Better late than never? Soooo, in Will’s world, whenever he feels pathetic and sad, he gets to go and fuck someone else? This all goes back to the facts that they have zero trust and that Sonny can’t spend his life building up Will’s self-esteem.
S: “You did, didn’t you? You slept with someone before Paul!” W: “No, I swear, I didn’t.” S: You’re lying.“ (What’s with the weird breathy voice, Will/GW?) W: “No. Sonny, Sonny, I love you. And all I care about is trying to fix our marriage.” S: “You slept with someone in Los Angeles.” W: “No, Sonny-” (STOP TRYING TO TOUCH HIM!!) S: “I asked you point blank in the hospital and you swore nothing happened in LA…That’s what you meant just now. You thought you could sleep with Paul and if he left town, I wouldn’t find out? Just like I wouldn’t find out about Los Angeles?” Sonny tries to leave, but Will grabs him to stop him. Sonny pushes him away. S: “All you talked about was how much you were working out in Los Angeles. That you didn’t have time to call me. And all that time, you were screwing around?” Sonny tries to leave again and Will grabs him again. W: “It only happened once.” FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! FUCK YOOOOOOOUUUUUU!!!!!!! I AM RAGING!!!!!!! RED FACE, TEARS IN MY EYES, HANDS SHAKING RAGING!!!! It’s like I’m the one who’s been so horribly betrayed. OMG I WISH I COULD PUNCH HIM IN HIS DISGUSTING FACE!!!!!! PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT ‘IT ONLY HAPPENED ONCE’ ARE FULL OF SHIT!!!! It’s been TWICE now. And he’s probably still lying. It was probably more than once in LA. Once a cheater, ALWAYS a cheater. WALK OUT THAT DOOR, SONNY. Pack a bag and WALK. Sonny deserves the world! Not a pathological, disgusting, pathetic cheater. Congratulations, William, for throwing away the best man you could ever hope to land.
Will starts to explain. S: “If you say it didn’t mean anything, I will scream.” GET YOUR DISGUSTING HANDS OFF OF SONNY. THERE IS LITERALLY NOTHING YOU CAN SAY. Maybe you take Sonny’s suggestion and call your buddy, Dr. Myers? Sonny storms out. HALLELUJAH!!! Fuck you, Will. Cry all you fucking want. You have NO ONE to blame, but YOURSELF.
Paul arrives at the lake. Yes, please take your shirt off, honey. Shirtless Paul might just make today less horrible. Hi, life-ruiner Derrick. Digging the cut and color. Much better than before. Stop smiling at him, Paul. I can’t deal with you flirting with him today. Derrick got fired from the Salem Inn. LOL. Yes, the other 2 guys you met at the hotel are married, Derrick. Not for much longer though. Why hasn’t Paul taken off his shirt yet??? Obviously, Paul doesn’t want to talk to LRD, a complete stranger, about Sonny and Will. LRD: “I can’t believe they’re married and have a little girl.” Did Will write your lines for you, Derrick? Why are you talking to Paul about wanting a husband and a kid some day??? If you want a husband and a kid, go hit on Will. LRD: “…Are you ready to settle down?” WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME???????? I’m a relatively good person. I don’t deserve this crap!!! Oh, and Will TOTES wrote Derrick a script. Paul says he’d like settle sometime when he finds the right person. Derrick, why would Paul tell you anything this personal????? Why would you say something about not wanting to get married right after you came out because it wouldn’t last????? Could you be anymore obvious????? Thanks for taking of you shirt, Paul, but NO to the sketchy ex-bellboy. Don’t it. Yes, go for a swim instead. Bye, LRD.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Victor confronts Theresa. V: “What the hell are you doing in my house?” He starts to call the police, but then decides he’ll just throw her out himself. Uh oh. Lol. Maggie & Brady to the rescue! B: “Grandad, listen, she is staying here.” V: “Over my dead body.” T: “Whatever.” I’d watch myself if I were Theresa. If she wants this new living situation to become permanent, she might want to be nice to Victor. Maggie asks Victor where he’s been. Flashback to Xander. V: “Taking care of business.” Nice. Lol. Oh jeez. Victor still wants to kick Theresa out, but keep Tate. B: “…she’s staying here.” V: “I don’t care what kind of an arrangement you made. That woman is not staying in my house and that’s final.” Well, now Brady will probably threaten to move out, taking Tate with him, and Victor will cave. Right? Or Brady’s gonna bring up Xander. Maggie steps in and tries to calm everyone down. She suggests that Theresa take Tate and go meet the nanny. V: “She’s not gonna meet the nanny! She’s gonna leave!” M: “I think this would be an excellent time for you to shut up.” LMAO. I am wound so tight that everything is extra funny today. Brady and Victor go out into the foyer to talk. Theresa thanks Maggie for her help. M: “Can it, Theresa. Victor only says what everyone thinks…No, I don’t want you here and you’re not welcome here. What, do you think we’re idiots? We have amnesia? No. Tate is welcome here. And we’re all gonna try to do our best for him. And that includes you. So as long as you’re here, don’t ever forget, I’ve got your number, cookie.” God bless, Maggie! She’ll be cordial, but she won’t be snowed by Theresa’s act. Hello, nanny Haley! Um, back it up, Theresa. She’s Tate’s nanny; not your maid. Unpack your own bags, you witch. Tate and the nanny leave. M: “…toe the line and I’ll try to be cordial. But no one in this house, especially me, is gonna take any attitude from you.” LOVE!!!!!! M: “You have played every card in your hand to get yourself into this house. Me, I’m not so sure that was a shrewd move. You’ve never had to deal with Victor in hand to hand combat. You think you fight dirty? And you might’ve been wise to give Brady a little space. Give him a little time to forget all the things that you had done. And oh, oh my goodness, I forgot! I have to tell Henderson that we won’t be needed these fireplace tools anymore.” Oh, I am allllllllllll about Maggie today!!! She’s my new queen! Haha.
Brady and Victor speak in the foyer. Brady isn’t in the mood to argue after the night he had; worrying about whether or not Nicole & Eric would live. B: “And I know you had a busy night too, right?” Victor feigns cluelessness, but Brady isn’t buying it. B: “…the all powerful patriarch, who knows whether a member of this family sneezes or not. You’re gonna stand here and give me the 'what’s that suppose to mean?’” Victor asks what happened. B: “Oh, not much. Xander tried to kill Eric and Nicole. That’s all.” Victor allows that he knew about Xander’s history, but he didn’t know it would get this bad. He says Xander went after Daniel and that was the last straw. Victor says that Xander better hope that the police find him before he does. Why are you lying to Brady??? Well, I know why, but still!!! Ugh. Victor changes the subject back to Theresa and her new living arrangements. Brady tells Victor that he’s doing this for his son; to keep Tate in Salem. B: “She doesn’t know squat about being a mother. Hell, she doesn’t know squat about being a human being. That’s why we have to, we have to make sure we take care of my son.” V: “She’s playing you, you know?” B: “Yeah, I know that, but I gotta put my son first.” Victor warns Brady that they might have to deal with Theresa whole family too. V: “That imbecilic mother, that slatternly sister. God, it’s like living in an episode of Honey Boo Boo.” LMAO!!!! Victor saying “Honey Boo Boo” has made my entire day. LOL!! Uh oh, Victor’s putting his foot down; Theresa can’t stay. And Brady’s threatening to go with her and the baby. Knew it!
Theresa, you go ahead and pretend like you have some magically upper hand. It’s only a matter of time before you screw up again. Brady and Victor are back. Maggie and Victor will put up with Theresa because they want what’s best for Tate. V: “This will work a lot better, Theresa, if you, uh, how should I put it? Stay the hell out of my way.” Yep. Victor’s been up all night and wants to take a nap. And then later do some male bonding with Brady and Tate. Haha. T: “Oh, and, Maggie? That hand to hand combat thing? You’re not so bad at it yourself.” M: “I just think it’s easier for people to get along when the rules are clear.” V: “Gave her hell, didn’t ya?” Haha. Yes, she did, Victor. You should be VERY proud of your wife. Maggie and Victor leave. Brady makes it pretty clear that this new living arrangements is temporary. Brady wants to go spend time with Tate. Does he want Theresa to come with? Or maybe he thinks she should go to work. T: “You actually expect me to work?!” B: “I certainly do.” T: “I’m sorry, but there is no way that’s happening.” She is so stupid. Give an inch! Go to work, Theresa.
In the Kiriakis foyer, Victor tells Maggie that he got a text from Daniel, saying is out of the woods. M: “Thank God.” V: “I guess.” LOL!!!!!! I’m with Maggie; give Daniel & Nicole space. Maggie wants to know what he’s not telling her. Victor tells Maggie that Daniel came and told him that Xander was up to no good, so he then told X to leave Salem and then he attacked Ericole. Maggie doesn’t think that’s the whole story, but she lets it go. Yeah, good luck calling Daniel, Victor. He’s going to have a lot of questions for you.
Abe arrests Xander at the police station for the attempted murders of Nicole and Eric. Yay! Though I’m sure there’s more to it; a catch. Xander plays dumb and says he’d never hurt Eric because their friends. So full of shit. Xander is willing to answer any and all questions Abe and Roman have because he wasn’t in town. Ugh. Xander tells them he was at a party in Chicago. Why are they questioning him in front of Serena? Lol. Abe and Roman are skeptical as hell. X: “…Serena can help me back up most of what I say. Right, Serena?” Uh oh. Serena won’t confirm Xander’s alibi, but Xander insists that he left town after Nicole spurned his advances. Abe and Roman still don’t believe a word Xander is saying. Not one little bit. They recognize that his story is too neat, too perfect. Roman knows that Xander’s alibi is completely fabricated and he promises Xander that he will get to the truth. Before Abe leads Xander out of Roman’s office and into an interrogation room, Xander thanks God that Serena wasn’t hurt like Eric and Nicole. Ew, he is so smarmy! Serena’s attorney finally arrives and Roman leaves the two women alone. She tells Serena to keep her mouth quiet if she “values [her] life.” Serena’s attorney feels confident that if she keeps her mouth shut, things will be fine. Uh oh, Serena thinks Xander “got to” her attorney. Wouldn’t surprise me if he did. Abe is back and tells Serena that she’s free to go. Xander is keeping up his lame story. He doesn’t understand why Eric and Nicole would think he tries to hurt them. *rolls eyes* Serena pretty much run out of Roman’s office.
In Nicole’s hospital room, Eric comes to talk to her about what happened last night. Daniel: “I want to hear what happened. Everything.” Omg I gasped out loud. I am wound way too freaking tight today. Help! Haha. D: “…I know exactly what Eric did.” No, you don’t. Daniel hugs Eric and thank him for saving Nicole. Oh, Daniel, honey. You’re too sweet and so stupid. Lol. Eric rejects the praise and gets all broody. Yeah, that’s the way to stay calm and not look guilty. Good work, Eric. Lol. N: “You can’t hold it in, Eric. You have to tell Daniel what happened.” What? No one is telling Daniel anything sooooo…there you go. Lol. Where are we going with this? Uh oh, she said “betrayal.” Ah, yes, Serena betrayed Eric! Good one, Nic! D: “Was it Serene who got you so upset?” Daniel gets a text from Abe, telling him that Xander is in custody and charged with attempted murder. Eric leaves to call Roman. Daniel wants to tell Nicole something. Sounds ominous? D: “When I found you and I thought you might die, I was out of my mind.” N: “But not too crazy to save my life.” D: “I have had my guard up for so long and when I thought, when my training told me I might lose you, I realized how damn much I love you. I need you. I need you in my life.” N: “When I thought about what could’ve happened, everything that we had together and everything that means anything to me, it could’ve been lost.” D: “It wasn’t. I am right here. I am here. You are here and everything that you went through, we can put that all behind us now.” N: “You’re right. It is over. And you and I are gonna put last night behind us. And we are finally gonna get the fresh start that we both want.” D: “Yes. Yea, baby.” Aww!!! Danicole feels!!!!! (I will forever be conflicted about liking Daniel. Lol.)
Sonny’s in the park now. Oh, Sonny. Flashback to “It only happened once.” Ugh, gross. Hi, shirtless Paul. Oh, Sonny!!!! Your face, my love!!!! My heart is so broken for Sonny. P: “How’s you know I was here?” S: “I didn’t. I come here sometime to think.” P: “You okay?” S: “No.” P: “Can you talk to me about it?” (*swoons* I so fucking love him.) S: “It’s nothing really. Just having problems at the club.” P: “Yeah, right.” S: “Paul, I just can’t talk about this with you. I just can’t.” And Sonny quite literally runs away. Oh, Sonny. Paul isn’t the one you should run away from.
Back at WilSon’s apartment, Will cries while playing with Ari. W: “I’m not gonna lose Sonny. I promise you that.” WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT???? WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU MAKE YOUR DAUGHTER A PROMISE LIKE THAT??????? YOU CAN’T KEEP THAT PROMISE TO ARI!!!!! YOU HAVE ALREADY LOST SONNY, WILL. HE IS AS GOOD AS GONE.
Daniel comes back to Nicole’s room to tell her that she’ll be released in a few hours. Yay! Aww, they’re sweet. Eric walks in on them kissing. Ouch. Lol.
This is wicked late because I had to walk away for a bit. It was too much.
Will is literal scum. I hate him and that will never change. He’s smashed Sonny’s heart into a million pieces yet again and he’s promising Ari that he won’t lose him. What the actual fuck??? Sonny is GONE. How could he not be???? If Sonny “major realization about their marriage” is anything other than it was a HUGE mistake and it’s over, I will lose all respect I have for Sonny. I can’t love/respect him if he isn’t going to love/respect himself.
The Paul/Derrick scene went as I expected. “Reacquainted” literally meant reacquainted. It wasn’t a euphemism for a nooner. Haha. Reintroduce them and have LRD spout some Will-approved lines. Seriously, it was so weird. Lol. But we got shirtless Paul, so it’s cool.
Daniel and Nicole are so cute. Poor Eric. Lol.
I LOVED MAGGIE SO MUCH TODAY!!!!! She helped me not to COMPLETELY lose my fucking mind.
I hate that Victor is keeping his mouth shut aka protecting Xander. At least, Roman and Abe know he’s full of shit. Too bad they don’t have any physical evidence to back up their suspicions.
Theresa’s in for a rude awakening if she thinks Brady’s going to pay her way in life. She isn’t his wife; she isn’t even his girlfriend. She should rethink her plan. Go to work. Show Brady that she wants to do what she can to provide for Tate and for herself. Being a selfish, entitled brat isn’t going to make Brady come around and love her again.
The Paul/Sonny scene! I’m glad Sonny didn’t throw himself at Paul, I guess. Paul is always there when Sonny needs someone, huh? If only Sonny would drop Will and let Paul be there. Lol. Can Paul please run after Sonny??? Pretty please with sugar on top???? He already knows Sonny’s lying about why he’s upset.
Thanks for reading!!!
'til tomorrow 💗 A
