Spoilers I use for commentary are compliments
of Soap Zone and Carol Banks Weber:
Welcome to me, sweeties!
HEEELLLPPPP! *deep breath*
HEEELLLLLLLPPPP! This is the
for Eye on Soaps donations for the month of November. I wanna keep
coming to visit you every week (not to mention the upcoming off topic
column that's on its way and BOY did I get Kurt with the head this time,
bwahahaha!), PLUS "Sage Faces the Music" and all of the other wonderful
EOS commentary, on and off topic, that this fantastic site offers.
EOS depends on YOU, our faithful reader, to help us stay around!
There is no chill like the icy cold of pulling up "Page Not Found"
when you try and come visit Sage on Monday! BRRRRR! Do not

Don't worry, babies! Everything is going
to be OK! (K.O?) SUPERRYAN is going to not only burst onto the
scene to save his wimmins from the smoky, burning bar, but he's also
going to find out that even after he's dead, he can still get a broad
knocked up (in theory).
Don't worry, babies! Everything is going
to be OK! I know you were all freaked out thinking that we were not
going to get to see ol' Del around for much longer, but Alec "I Really, No
Really Wanna Be a Back Burner Soap Star" Musser has been granted a
Zendall fans (Oooh! Oooh! Like
me!) are going to get a thrill this week when Zach rushes to Kendall's
hospital bed and pours out his wuv for her, but what a zinger!
Greenlee makes sure that Kendall doesn't know that Zach was holding vigil
and declaring his love.
The final nail JR's coffin hits home this week
when he realizes that Babe really is covering up for his own drunken
mistake of running over Amanda and not actually killing her (OK, I
modified that a bit). Once he starts to have memories set in and
realizes that Babe is taking the blame for something he actually did,
that's all she wrote. Da boy is hooked in.
My hatred for Julia, with her scrunched up
little angry face (she gets that Chucky look going on and I get the
trembles, laws yes) and her bad clothes taste and her screeching little
voice, is surpassed only by my white hot hatred for Ryan, so you can
imagine that the "Rulia" pairing is causing me to vomit most projectile-ishly.
Seeing her slide her sticky self up and down Zach, leaving a trail like a
slug everywhere she touched, was more than I could aptly recover from in
just a couple of days' time. It made me want to put a condom on my
TV and do a series of STD tests on it.
Aidan and Erin, sittin in a tree...
Re: last week's shows. Why does
Erica still have bright red dresses in her wardrobe when she is now the
live in stepmother to Lily?
Look for Sam to try and play out the "Coward
of the County" story where Jonathan is concerned.
Bitter, much? Yeah, with AMC, I sure am.
It used to be the best and now it's limping along like a little sick
OLTL Spoiler Commentary
Carlo hints ominously
to Cristian at the Armageddon ahead in Statesville, and promises that
Cris will be helpless against the onslaught.
There has NEVER been a cooler Jiminy Cricket than Carlo Hesser.
Having him perched on Cris' ear, whispering his threats and
prognostications has been a joy that I am bane to give up once Cris is out
and loose in the world once again.
John goes to check up
on Cris, but fails to see him. This time.
John cannot penetrate the prison "good-ol'-boy" network, it seems.
shakes Hayes down for the 411 on what Carlo’s up to next. But Angus, a
cell mate, is more forthcoming.
Every time a spoiler mentions "Hayes," I start thinking that Hayes Barber
is in on the prison riot. If Angus does not have an Scottish accent,
I will be deeply and mortally disappointed.
Angus forewarns Cris
that come the following day, Carlo will lead a prison riot, enabling him
to flee Statesville’s confines.
gotta admit, that is one hell of a distraction.
Cris asks Angus for a
huge favor, that when he is released on parole before the scheduled
prison riot, to please pass on the dire word to Bo.
bet the word is "HELP!"
John goes to a church
to reflect. His dead father gives inspiration (instead of Jesus, for
example), leading John back to Bo to give a full confession about Cris,
who is not John, John Doe.
dead guy is just everywhere!
Bo reacts to John’s
confession (about Cris and Carlo, too) with incredulity and more than a
little irritation. Then, Bo strongly suggests John’s next visit be with
Natalie, for more of the same unburdening.
What? Bo actually makes a good call? Hell really HAS frozen
John does go to
Natalie, but for a little nookie, perhaps his last.
Hmmm... Tell Natalie her husband is alive or bang her like an 8 penny
nail... I think I'll bang her!
In the afterglow,
John prepares to chat with the prison warden, on Cris’ behalf.
not tell Natalie, I guess.
John speaks with the
prison warden, about beefing up the guard units around Cris. While
John ruminates on the merits of putting a wire on Cris, to trick Carlo
into confessing all, a planned prison riot kicks off.
Those ruminations didn't get him very far.
Carlo commands Hayes
to take out John, then Cris forthwith.
probably should have added, "And not in that order!"
John and Cris
eventually hook up, forced to fight evil together, amidst the prison
riot. Or at least stave off the threat to their lives until Bo saves
exactly Batman and Robin.
Bo is trying, but
Haskell has become a huge, annoying roadblock.
many new names I can't even keep them straight.
The Haskell roadblock
summarily dealt with, Bo leads the command of troops in to Statesville
to curtail the riot and rescue John and Cris. Before he can do any
rescuing, the prison warden is felled by Hayes.
Carlo sends a message
by throwing the dead warden overboard, from a high place, watching it go
tumbling down, right in front of Bo below.
Message received, I guess.
Hayes does not walk
away from the prison riot unscathed.
he expect to?
Uppermost on Cris’s
mind: reaching his lady fair, Natalie, by any means necessary, which
means he must stay alive.
Maybe one of his priorities should be figuring out how to convince her she
doesn't really hate him.
Natalie rouses from
her love-making slumber, feeling around for her man, John, but feeling
nothing but cold sheets.
Evangeline is feeing the same thing, girl. Her sheets are just a
little colder than yours.
calling. Natalie shares her concerns about John with his younger
brother. After Roxy observes, then verbalizes how much Michael
digs Natalie, in that way, ballsy Nat brings this subject up to Michael.
Michael is aghast, stating that he’s only all about Marcie.
he's not, now he'll have John AND Cris in his way! I think Natalie's
dance card is pretty full.
The prison riot
terrifies Evangeline, and Natalie. But Natalie is even more bewildered
when Vangie refers to Cristian of all people in this mess.
Yeah, that probably was not very professional of Evangeline, there.
The truth about John
Doe comes crashing all around Natalie. She doesn’t know whether to be
overjoyed, pissed off, scared to death, offended, or everything at once.
voting "all of the above."
As Natalie processes
this revelation, she feels betrayed by Cristian and John, and everybody
else who knew before her. How dare they take that choice from her?, she
thinks. But she also feels love for both men, differently.
Quite the conundrum, eh girlie?
Spencer coerces David
to dump Dorian publicly at the altar, and David goes along with it,
because if he doesn’t, a killing he committed in the distant past will
make itself known publicly by evil big brother.
David gives Dorian
some BS about why he’s doing such a cruel thing to her, but she thinks
he’s full of BS.
KNOW he's fully of BS, which is why we LOVE him, but can't we just at last
get this wedding on the road?
rejection levels Dorian, who suffers great emotional distress. The queen
of comebacks forces herself to recover, long enough to get to the bottom
Because she's a CRAMER WOMAN!
Under the delusion
that somehow, Viki will straighten matters, Dorian heads over there.
Viki reacts to Dorian’s sob story with kindness. Well, Viki tries
that's sweet. I think they should crawl into bed and drink more of
the happy tea they had a few years back.
Dorian mouths off to
Viki yet again about her DID, and that does it, Viki drops the bomb of
her daughter Jessica suffering from the same ailment now. Dorian’s jaw
drops, foot stuck inside.
Yeah, not so good timing.
Dorian takes her
leave. Once the doors close behind her, she picks up where that
emotional distress last left off.
who can blame her? This was a biggie! Just as Spencer planned.
Spencer twists the
knife in Dorian, practically bragging about the power he wields over
David, he, the cause of her distress.
The calling card is his downfall. If he'd just left well enough
alone, not been a routine bad guy and needed to brag, he would have been
fine. But noooo. He has to tell Dorian he is the culprit and
now the caca will slam right into the fan. He completely does not
realize who he's dealing with.
Spencer menaces David
to behave, because otherwise, David’s murder will be made public.
David’s almost to the point of not caring about saving his hide, because
of what he was made to do to the woman he’s supposed to love, to Dorian.
He vows to do whatever it takes to make it up to Dorian, try again.
THERE's a good boy!
Roxy helps David see
the light, and gives him the gonads to be a man about Dorian. David sets
about righting his wrongs, stat.
is going to be one extremely magnificent scene!
The cops put Todd
behind bars, holding in his cell, waiting arraignment. While interned
there, Blair visits, demanding once and for all, the truth, not his
excuses. Todd truthfully swears by his innocence to Blair. His
intent was to kill, but his deed, was something else. Blair finds him
haven't even heard it yet and I find him quite credible. Otherwise,
we have not story.
Just as Todd’s about
to get into details, Blair has to go.
WHAT? Did she just remember she left her iron on or what? GET
Spencer waits in the
wings, ready to pounce on Blair, with his sweet-talk and support.
he reminds me of the snake in "The Jungle Book." "Trussssst in
meeeee. Jusssssst in meeeee."
Kelly gives Todd an
earful of her self-righteous lectures.
*sigh* She's just a baby thief. I guess that boosts her up the
food chain somehow.

continue to stew in the clink.
not as though she can prove he isn't a flight risk! He might as well
have been caught in a Bronco with blood on the seat, a few grand in his
pocket and a bad disguise on hand. Wait... he pretty much was.
Jessica tells Natalie
that a baby’s on the way, and were it left up to Tess, that unborn baby
would’ve been excised from Jess’s womb.
wonder if Tess can sue Jessica for slander. That would be a
great court case. We might really keep Evangeline busy here.
In fact, whether the lawyer worked for Jess or Tess, we could probably
pull a "conflict of interest" objection.
Natalie forbids Nash
from going anywhere near Jess.

Embattled, Nash and
Antonio take their animosity to the next, physical level, with
Listen, I hope Nash wipes the floor with Antonio. No one on Daytime

Clint lets Nash check
up on Tess, as she slumbers.
did they clear this with Sheriff Natalie and Warden Antonio?
Viki insists it’s
okay, she’s up for a DID sacrifice of her own. But Clint won’t have it,
not at her personal, medical expense.

Adriana flies off the handle, leaving Duke estranged.
She's just been a little hormonal whirlwind lately, hasn't she?
Rex reads Adriana

More of the November
Sweeps train wreck, its aftermath and the heroic showcase of the NuCarly.

bowled over with pain. Elizabeth reverts into nurse mode. Suddenly, the
ground beneath them shakes, and before they know it, they, too, are
isolated from each other, by walls and walls of dirt and rubble. Others
attempt to dig and dig to Lucky and Elizabeth, including Luke, Sonny,
Reese, Nikolas, etc. They reach Elizabeth and start digging some more to
reach Lucky, who’s on his last breath. Just as they spy Lucky, he
breathes his last, heart giving out. Elizabeth does CPR on Lucky, and

Robin slips, clinging for dear life and bloodied, off the side of a

him helpless. Now Jason’s off the cliff, going under water for a final
time. Sam runs around with her SOS for him. Carly pulls Jason out of a
surefire drowning death.
Jason jumps in to rescue her and misses? Is that the idea?
"DON'T SAVE ME! I'M HIV POSI... hey, where are you going?"
Carly fights for her
sanity, so that she may take care of those threatened by Manny. She goes
about the saving by practically taking on Manny, in a gunfight, escaping
with her life, derailing an explosion from a mix with diesel, parting
the Red Sea for the Israelites (okay, scratch the last part).
