Days of Our Lives Recap: Nick & the Birdman

at .  Updated at . Comments

Things just got weirder on Days of Our Lives. Wait, is that even possible?

Nick Fallon was not only strong-arming Kate for a job, he also wanted a position for his friend…the bird man! 

Kate and Nick

I'll admit I kind of saw that coming. When Nick said that a mystery man helped nurse him back to health, I guessed it was our oddball Santa Claus. Other than Dr. Chyka, bird man is the only other mystery man in town…and Dr. Chyka is more about drugging and killing people than saving them.

Since Nick wants bird man as his lab assistant I'm assuming he does more than just watch birds in the woods and play Santa. 

Poor Kate. You could practically see the blood drain from her face when she saw him. Will she crumble and give Nick everything he wants? I hope not. That would just prove to Nick he's got power over her and we're still not sure exactly how much he remembers.  But wouldn't it be funny if Nick asked Kate for his phone back?

Nick has been both arrogant and ominous with everyone, Gabi, Will, Sami, Kate, Rafe, and now Abigail. Does he think she knows what happened? Is he looking to torture her too? And the bigger question, is he the one with the recording of her and EJ going hot and heavy at the Horton cabin?

Speaking of Abigail, she can't get EJ out of her head. Their almost tryst in the storage closet must have been completely frustrating for them both because their smoldering glances have only gotten worse. 

Between Abby's come hither looks and low cut tops, it's as though she's yanking EJ around by a leash and he can't help but come when she calls. 

In other news Nicole and Daniel may have tracked down creepy Dr Chyka who didn't have the common sense to get a new cell phone before going on the run.

I was so proud of Nicole for not only wanting to help Eric but admitting that she deserves to be someone's first choice for once in her life. 

Daniel refused to let her go it alone, partly because I think the show insists on having Dr. Dan play the hero in as many story lines as possible. But I do appreciate the friendship between Daniel and Nicole and I look forward to their latest adventure. 

A few small side notes:

  • Eric spent time rehashing his sex life/love life/ and vows to God with Friar Tuck who was kind of creepy for a man of God.
  • Eric admits that he's angry at Brady for being an idiot and bringing Kristen back into their lives.
  • Maggie was upset that Brady got stinking drunk once again and blew off AA. On this one Victor's right. She needs to back off. Brady will get help when he wants it and not a minute before.
  • Wouldn't it be great to see EJ, Lucas, and Rafe team up to take down Nick Fallon?

Now it's your turn. Who had the best line in Salem on today's Days of Our Lives?
