A week of Days of Our Lives that began with gun shots ended with a romantic Valentine's Day proposal as Will said yes to Sonny.
With a wedding on the horizon and Nicole and Eric's future hanging in the balance, TV Fanatics Nick McHatton and Christine Orlando are joined by Dana and SilverFox from MyHourglass a Days of Our Lives Fan Forum to discuss Teresa and JJ's future, Nick and Sonny wedding plans... and whether Nicole will come clean.
Were you surprised that Will accepted Sonny's proposal? Any thoughts on their wedding?
Dana: I wasn't surprised. The conversations Will had with Marlena and EJ this week showed that the proposal was on his mind. I think they are rushing into marriage. They are already living together and adjusting to being parents. I don't understand the hurry to get married.
SilverFox: Yes, a little. I think Will feels a bit guilty for turning Sonny down. On the other hand, maybe it shows maturity that he realizes that things are never going to be “normal” in their lives, so why wait?
Nick: Not at all, it was only a matter of time until Will accepted. I'm all for them marrying, and I hope their wedding is just as dramatic and crazy as the last few Salem weddings have been.
Christine: I expected we'd have to wait longer to get here but I wasn't surprised he said yes. I think the wedding will be a lot of fun. I can picture Will getting completely stressed and Sonny trying to keep things calm. With all the family drama this could be a lot of fun.
Do you think Teresa will continue to torment JJ now that he's been sentenced?
Dana: If she wants to she could keep holding the video over his head while he's on probation. I hope not. She needs to find something better to do than torture a high school boy. I wish JJ would tell Daniel the truth about Teresa's memories.
SilverFox: Based on the last scene of Friday’s show, it looks like Teresa may have figured out a better way to torment Jennifer, since that seems to be her ultimate goal. I think she’s going to use Daniel instead of JJ.
Nick: Theresa doesn't like people having the upper hand on her, and she's going to try to do something to get back her edge. With JJ almost in the clear, she's probably going to be focusing all of her efforts on Daniel.
Christine: With JJ having one year of probation she could still mess with him but I hope not. This story's gotten boring. I'm hoping they have Teresa move on from her I hate Jennifer campaign but I doubt it will happen soon.
EJ wants to reconcile with Sami. Will Abigail be able to stay away from him?
Dana: Even though part of Abby knows it's wrong she just can't help herself. She is infatuated with EJ. I don't see that ending any time soon. At least I hope not. I'm all for more hot shower scenes.
SilverFox: Abby is going to be a big problem for EJ. I don’t think she’s even going to try to stay away from him.
Nick: I hope not, the sexual tension between EJ and Abigail is still red hot. EJ might want to get back to Sami, to get back to what he knows, but there's no denying from him that his connection to Abigail is strong and is real; let's ride that out for as long as possible.
Christine: Abigail's got an obsessive streak (remember Austin?) and I don't think that's gone away. EJ is going to have his hands full. At this point as much as I'll hate the heartbreak for Sami and the kids, I'm going to love watching Sami make Abby pay.
Nicole holding back the evidence. Understandable, disappointing or just incredibly frustrating?
Dana: I think it's all of the above. Nicole has gone to extraordinary lengths to get the evidence to clear Eric. His declarations of love and leaving the priesthood have really thrown her for a loop. I have to wonder if a part of her doesn't believe she deserves a happy ending. So she's subconsciously sabotaging her chance at happiness.
SilverFox: Extremely frustrating considering she knows from experience that secrets and lies always come out. I was hoping we’d see more character growth from her.
Nick: Typical soap angst! I wish Nicole wouldn't keep something so big from Eric, and to let him come to his own decision with all the pieces. In the end, Nicole is looking for the same as Eric: her happy ending. So on some level it's understandable that she is willing to withhold this evidence in order to better her chances, yet it's a double-edge sword, those same actions will bring about big complications.
Christine: Frustrating. In some ways Nicole has come so far. She deserves to have Eric choose her and not as his second choice. The longer she keeps the evidence from it the bigger the chance that she'll lose him over it.
What was your favorite scene of the week?
Dana: I liked the scenes with Nick and the ladies. It was all so good. Nick mentioning the attempt on his life. Nick so easily getting the women to begin turning on each other. Percy's role in saving Nick's life.
SilverFox: I’d say it has to be Eric telling Nicole he wants to spend his life with her. I also enjoyed watching Nick toy with the women and finally show them the photos. And I was happy to see JJ get off without prison time. I heart JJ.
Nick: Will and Sonny getting engaged is my favorite scene. It's something I'm super excited to see play out.
Christine: I was thrilled to finally see a scene between Will and Marlena. It's been a long time and I really hope we get more of them together in the future.
