I'm wondering what kind of storylines we're going to get with everyone moving into the Kiriakis mansion.
First Chloe and now Chelsea? Since when are Philip and Bo "brothers"? They were never close so it was kind of odd how he asked if Chelsea could move in on Thursday.
Then Nicole is supposed to be coming back. What's her status anyway? Is she still married to Victor? Someone mentioned her sleeping with Roman before she left the last time. Why were they together? (ew...he's Eric's father...gross)
So who's living in the Kiriakis mansion: Chloe, Philip, Victor, Chelsea and possibly Nicole.
Who else? LOL. Maybe Bo should move in too while he's recuperating. Then Hope can join him. Bring Kate back also...
LOL! I know - Victor and Philip will need a bellhop and desk clerk to help keep things running smoothly at Hotel Kiriakis.
With all those people staying there, it will certainly create an environment ripe with dramatic possibilities.
I totally agree re Philip and Bo. Didn't really watch after Jay left, but my impression/perception has always been that Bo never looked upon/treated Philip as a sibling - his ONLY siblings were Bradys. Whether it was the age difference, or that Bo kept his distance from the Kiriakis clan out of a sense of loyalty toward Shawn Sr. (i.e., the man who raised him, and continued to view him, as his own flesh and blood), I never saw any brotherly bond between him and Philip, at least not on screen, nor hinted at otherwise. Shawn D. and Philip, yes, they were friends, like brothers - but not Philip and Bo.
That's why I found an exchange of dialog a few months back a bit out puzzling . . . It was between Hope and Philip, shortly after Nadia returned to Days, immediately before that steamy Titan office romp (the one where Philip lost a few buttons . . .) Does anyone recall that scene between Philip and his sister in law? The exchange seemed to suggest family bonding between Philip, Bo and Hope that was never shown or alluded to. Maybe that sequence was the show's attempt to 'rewrite' a bit of family history, perhaps to incorporate Philip into more stories? Any thoughts?
P. S. - another great banner. Babylawpup does awesome work!
ITA. The Kiriakis mansion is going to be a wee bit crowded. I guess one good thing is that means we'll definitely get more Philip because every character will be living in his house. LOL! I'm waiting to to see that Nicole/Chloe squabble. I wonder if it will be a cat fight or a kitten fight?
Loved today's episode. I love when Philip is interacting with Victor and Kate, great family. And there was lots of humor today also. The tension between Chloe, Philip and Victor was great. Can't wait to see more scenes like this!
Anyone remember that dinner with Victor, Nicole, Philip and Chloe back in the day? That was one of my favorite episodes and this episode was ten times better! LOL. Loved that Victor is such a good grandpa to Chelsea. He was so attentive and nurturing. Victor began to be a real family man after the birth of Philip and now he's a powerful tycoon with the heart of a teddy bear concerning his grandbaby. I thought they were adorable. Victor and Chloe, on the hand, oh my goodness! Talk about throwing some bombs! Victor and Kate have never approved of Chloe and he is doing his best to not disappoint Philip, but those looks he kept giving her were priceless. I love that Philip is no longer Chloe's gullible, lovesick puppy on a leash. But, like Victor, he's loyal and he tries to respect both of their positions. I think Philip realizes that he doesn't owe Chloe anything, but I also think he can't bring himself to turn his back on her either. I'm looking forward to seeing how Chloe responds if Morgan gains an interest in him. And Miss Chloe is one firecracker now! I say bring on the drama! All in all, I truly enjoyed today's episode. As unconventional as they are, the Kiriakis clan is definitely much watch TV!
LOVED today's episode. It was filled with incredible tension, that's for sure. And of course, Nicole walking in as she did, just the very touch the evening needed - NOT . . . well, it needed from the viewer's perspective - just that little something that turned their dinner party gone wrong into Fiasco at Kiriakis Manor - and make it must see viewing for the audience. It was tense, fun, and riveting - so much dramatic potential, that I'm sure will be fulfilled in the coming episodes.
The tension between Victor and Chloe - boy, it kept mounting, adding to the excitement. Kate, for once, didn't try to fan that tension - which I felt unusual for her. Just can't wait to see what Nicole tosses into the fire - I'm sure it will transform the smoldering embers into a raging blaze.
Re Chelsea's explanation of her family tree - have you ever tried to explain to a friend or relative, who happens to be in the room while you're watching, who's related to whom? It gets hilarious, because everyone - or so it seems - was/is/will be related to everyone else. Only on Days.
