Initially, Salemites wondered who Laura thought she by was crashing Kristen’s wedding with crazy accusations, but it turned out everyone was left wondering about the woman in the flying false teeth! Plus, King blows Bo’s cover! Read all about it in this week's Two Scoops!
Who Do You Think You Are?
For the Day of June 24, 1997
Thank God for DOOL! I needed the distraction. I was sick of hearing Hanson’s MMMBop on the radio 24/7. And thank God for a short Scoop! Between summer classes, my glamorous summer job at my dad’s restaurant, and Scooping for Sunset Beach, I’m spreading myself thin these days. But I digress as the subject as hand is DOOL and there was a lot to discuss. So, let’s talk about it, shall we?
SUSAN, JOHN, and COMPANY
Sometimes I’m not sure who’s nuttier -- Susan or Laura. But I guess in this case Susan wins the, um, prize as Laura was right about everything. Stefano did kidnap Marlena and they were in the house. Although the outfits were crazier than Laura (sorry, I know she’s the “good one,” but she would drive me to drink, well, if I was old enough to buy my own Zima), I loved every minute of the big reveal! DOOL does large outings so well.
As for John, he can be a little dense sometimes, can’t he? I love the man, but, geesh, not knowing Susan was posing as Kristen was getting to me. I’m glad that’s over. You’d think above anyone else he’d be able to spot an imposter being an international man of mystery and all. Alas, John figured it out -- after it was spelled out for him -- and then went to find Kristen and Doc in the “dungeon.” Score one for the good guys! On second thought, they only deserve a half-point.
KRISTEN and MARLENA
These two had an eventful day! They, um, were unconscious on the floor the entire show. Then again, Marlena didn’t annoy me once. That’s a small victory.
BO, BARBIE-BILLIE, and KING
Wow! I can’t believe Barbie-Billie’s plan to put her finger in her coat and pretend it’s a gun didn’t work. I mean, really, that was such a good idea…on a ‘50s sitcom, perhaps. Anyway…
King and company got the jump on Bo! They knew he was undercover. Shocker! Okay, not really, but I’m worried about Bo and his Yosemite Sam mustache. If Barbie-Billie is his only backup, he’s in big trouble.
Then again, King is kinda dumb! He’s a stud, but he should have known better than to try and bribe Bo. If Bo needed more riches than he could ever imagine, he’d simply buddy up to his daddy Victor Kiriakis! You know, one of the richest men in Salem.
And the award for the Smartest Salemites goes to Mike and Faux-Jennifer! Why did they turn their back on Laura!? For a doctor and a top investigative reporter they sure weren’t thinking on their feet.
Ouch! Bo said “my family and Billie.” I repeat, “Ouch!” Methinks his wife would have been included in the family part, but I guess not. Whoopsy!
For once Celeste wasn’t wrong about her psychic vibes! She knew Stefano was present. I just wish someone could have seen through his stellar disguise. It was genius! Like, no way, no how anyone would suspect that was him. Nope. Not at all. Riiiggghhhttt!
Susan’s teeth flying into Vivian’s glass was hysterical! There were a lot of laughs, but this stole the show. I especially loved Vivian’s reaction. Ha! Simply, “Ha!”
I love ya, Hope, but you’re stupid for trusting Franco! So, stupid! Sure, sure. He’s handsome and dashing, and usually a few evil quirks can be overlooked, but he’s -- as Susan would say -- a mean, mean, mean vampire, too.
LINE OF THE DAY:
Vivian (to Ivan, regarding Kristen): “If I didn’t know better I’d think Kristen was eating some sort of funny mushroom. The way she’s been acting is so bizzare.”
I still think the secret room’s entrance is totally cool!
I love John calling Vivian “aunt.”
Wow! All of the outfits were so crazy, but I think Abe one the prize for the best. By “best” I mean worst.
Marlena’s neon lime attire and hair scrunchie might have fit right in with the whacky wardrobe upstairs.
I love seeing Mickey, Shawn, and Lexie with their spouses! I’m sure they’ll be together forever.
I wonder if Bo will always have unique facial hair. Nah, probably not.
It cracks me up when Susan calls John, Jr. “Little Elvis.” She should just call him Elvis, Jr., or even E.J. for short.
So, friends and fellow DOOL fans, that’s Two Scoops for June 24, 1997! I should start my Sunset Scoop, but I’m going to procrastinate and either see Austin Powers for the fifth time or Batman & Robin since it just opened. Any suggestions? In the meantime, Laurisa will bring girl power back next week and cover all the latest happenings in Salem! And “That’s a fact!”
As always, thanks for reading!
