How are we supposed to believe that Gwen suddenly figured out that Dimitri and Leo were together? She didn’t know anything about their relationship, but she admitted to Kristen that she knew about their affair. Excuse us? When did she suddenly figure that out? They were giving her the dumbest reasons for being caught with their pants down and she seemed to believe it. She figured out the truth off-screen. That was an anticlimactic outcome as far as we’re concerned. We were hoping for her to find out in a dramatic way. Her attitude is completely different now that she knows the truth. She will be acting as if she’s known all along. Did the writers want us to believe that Gwen suddenly got a brain? How long did they have to be together before she figured out the truth? We’re hoping that the confrontation will be much better than the reveal.
It can’t be stressed enough that Wendy does absolutely nothing for us. She is a useless character. We don’t have a problem with the actress (we’ve never seen her in anything else), but we do have a problem with the character. She adds nothing to the storyline, so she could be written out, and we wouldn’t even care. With that said, she tried to stand up to EJ when she confronted him about hiring someone to kill Ava. Did she really think she could try to outsmart EJ by checking his phone without getting caught? She doesn’t appear to know what he’s capable of doing. She knew that EJ hired a hit-woman, so what made her think he wouldn’t go after her? EJ had no problem going after Ava, so getting Wendy would be a breeze. She should just mind her business and stop trying to act like she’s a hero.
We are enjoying watching the feud between Maggie and Vivian. They are legendary actresses, so we certainly don’t mind seeing the vets have a front-burner storyline. Maggie and Vivian are battling because Victor is still legally married to Vivian. Maggie definitely got the shock of her life when she found out that she wasn’t queen of the manor anymore. We applaud the writers for giving Maggie something to do besides telling Sarah to talk to Xander about her baby. Maggie is ready to go after Vivian and hold on to everything. Maggie has certainly gotten over the loss of her “husband” now that she’s focused on getting the fortune back. It’s always good to see Vivian in Salem. She definitely added spice to the Kiriakis storyline. We are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for Maggie, as well as the Kiriakis family.
Speaking of the Kiriakis family, why did Theresa have to be involved in their storyline? She’s been gone for a long time, and now she’s suddenly involved in their story. We’re not sure what role she plays in it, but we’re hoping that it’s not an eye-rolling experience. She doesn’t have a reason to be involved in the story, so we’ll see how that turns out.
It’s time to shift gears and bring up another subject. Talia and Shawn spent the night together. We’re not really sure why the writers went in this direction. We know that Shawn was eventually going to sleep with someone else, since he started drinking, but we didn’t think he would end up with Talia. It was definitely a random experience. Jada found out that Shawn spent the night with her and read Talia the riot act about being with him. She reminded her that Belle helped her when she was in trouble. Talia was just concerned with feeling better. She didn’t care that she hurt the person who went out of her way to help her. She should have been ashamed that she ended up with Belle’s husband.
Chloe found out the truth about Sarah’s baby. It didn’t take long for her to learn that Xander is really the father. It was a convenient coincidence that she was around when Rex spilled the beans to Philip (in public). She knows the truth, so she has to decide whether she wants to tell Xander the truth about the baby. Will she tell him that he’s about to be a father and risk losing him? That’s a question we will have to wait for next week to find out.
