Summary: With the ice storm a backdrop, several couples (Mickey and Maggie, Doug and Julie, Bo and Hope) reminisce of the past. Okay, for a 40th Anniversary show…this was somewhat disappointing for me. I was expecting a show filled with memorable flashbacks with lots of warm fuzzies…but instead, it is the current storylines, sprinkled with a few short clips thrown in here and there. Quite a letdown for a show with such a rich history to draw upon. (But then, that’s just my opinion.)
At the Loft…Mimi and Shawn are in bed making out and he asks her if she is sure and she says yes. They make love to “You and Me (and All of the People)” by Lifehouse. Afterwards, Mimi is a bit giddy, saying it’s weird and talks about how she always had a crush on him and how she begged him to take her to the Last Blast. He admits that he had a bit of a crush on her as well. But she knew he was in love with Belle. He calls her beautiful and reminds her he kissed her BEFORE he kissed Belle (insert flashback of them kissing in Paris). She asks him if he could trade places with Philip, would he? He says he wouldn’t change places with anyone right now…he is enjoying where he is and who he is with.
At the Deveraux Place…Jennifer is worried about Jack, she can’t reach him on his cell phone. She calls Mickey and Maggie, but they haven’t seen him either, but Maggie assures her he will be fine. Frankie tries to calm her down with a little Salem Tea. He tries to get her to talk about something else, so she tells him about the family tree website they are putting together. She pulls out a photo of them and talks about what a big part of her life he has been. )Insert flashbacks of them younger with him undressing her and them kissing.) She then takes out a picture of her and Jack and we get flashbacks of them arguing at the paper…saying it was NOT love at first sight. She says she had no idea she would ever fall in love with him, then we get flashbacks of her seducing him and him resisting. She talks about how he could make her happy and angry at the same time and we get short flashbacks of both of their weddings. She says she doesn’t know what she will do without him and cries on Frankie’s shoulder. Later, she is trying to call him again, begging him to pick up…as we see flowers under water.
In their car…Doug and Julie are on their way to Mickey and Maggie’s house and get caught in the ice storm. Doug thinks they should turn around and go back home, the weather is too bad. The road is closed ahead and a cop informs them that they are de-icing the road for them to just sit tight. Doug thinks it is kind of romantic and he turns on the radio and the song “Till There was You” is playing and we get a flashback of him singing it at their wedding. It goes off and then “When a Man Loves a Woman” comes on. Julie laughs and says this must be Horton Radio…she told Lucas to sing that to Sami when he proposed. They talk about Sami and Lucas and Julie is sure that they belong together, despite all their troubles. We get flashbacks of them first meeting as well as Austin and Carrie’s wedding (when Sami fainted). Julie says poor Sami…she messes up every good thing in her life. For all of their arguing…sometimes Lucas and Sami remind her of her and Doug. Doug says but THEY are together…Sami and Lucas should be so lucky. Later they learn the road is open, but Julie is happy just resting against him. She asks if they are going home or to Mickey’s. Doug says he has a more important question…are they going to include Marlena and John in Alice’s website. (Why would they?...neither of them are relatives of Alice, so why would they be on her family tree?) Julie says that even though Marlena can’t remember her past…they can’t forget HER. Doug agrees…she is UNFORGETTABLE. Then we get a flashback of John and Marlena kissing. Julie says what a love story…it’s a love that will not die (then we get a brief flashback of the pier reunion). They agree that they belong together. But Julie says now there is another woman after John. Doug nods and says “Dear Kate”…
Cut to the hospital…as Kate asks John how his back is. He says fine, but it is his heart that needs help. He goes to check on the baby as she snoops through medical folders and sees something shocking, saying “Oh my GOD…this can’t be true”. She copies the papers, saying she must protect her family any way she can. Marlena worries about Claire as well as Belle as Alex tries to take her home, but she refuses to leave. She tells him that she now knows who she wants to spend her life with. Lexie tells Philip and Belle she wishes she had better news as Belle cries and asks if Claire is going to die, as Philip holds her.
At Mickey and Maggie’s…she hopes that Doug and Julie decided to stay home. After Jen calls looking for Jack, Mickey is sure that he is okay, probably just the weather. He is sure that if he can…he WILL get to Jen as soon as possible. He talks about how Tom and Jack didn’t see eye to eye, but he KNEW that Jack loved her and that was enough. Flashback here of Tom and Jack talking about Jen. Maggie agrees, but talks about how Alice was CRAZY over Jack. She talks about how Alice always gave her wise advice…even recently…concerning their marriage. They talk about all the storms they have weathered and sure there are more ahead and just hope they last like Tom and Alice. (Insert flashback of Tom and Alice at Christmas). Maggie says there was NEVER a more loving couple. She takes out her photo album and hourglass (doesn’t everyone have one of those sitting around?, LOL) They look at pictures as we get a montage of the ornament hangings through the years with Tom’s voice over explaining why they do this. Maggie weeps as Mickey holds her. Later, Doug and Julie finally arrive safely. Julie and Maggie sit down with boxes of photos as Maggie says there is 40 years worth. Julie hopes that this won’t depress or upset Alice…after all, it is 40 years GONE. Maggie assures her that the years are not gone…and NOT forgotten…each moment is in all of their hearts as they look at a photo of Tom and Alice…and cut to the hourglass.
At the Brady House…Hope is on the sofa with the laptop working on her Christmas project for Alice when Bo comes in. (He had been out looking for Chelsea and informs her that she and Abby are at Bonnie’s). She is a little po’d because he missed Zack’s Thanksgiving play. He forgot and feels bad and says it is tough being dad to 3 kids. Hope just wants him to be there for their boys too. Bo talks about Shawn’s birth as well as Zack’s (as we get brief flashbacks of each). He asks about her project as she gives him an update on http://www.alicesfamilytree.com/. She just hopes that Gran will like it. She shows him pictures that she has scanned and there are flashbacks of them on the Fancy Face(s). They look at a picture of Shawn and Belle from the Last Blast and talk about how they thought they would end up together. Hope is sure that Belle married the wrong guy and Bo agrees. But Bo says if Mimi makes him happy, that is all that is important. She talks about how they learn from their mistakes as Bo chuckles, remembering how THEY didn’t. Flashback here of Bo and Hope in bed (when they were younger), and Doug interrupting. Bo laughs, saying he is glad Doug didn’t have a weapon that night, OR he would have lost something important. There are flashbacks of their weddings as Hope says that both Doug and Tom knew that Bo was the only man she could love and they kiss. Bo says that Ms. H is going to love this gift. He says she forgot to include there vows…cue another flashback of their wedding (with the silver link vows) and back to them kissing as the storm rages on outside.
The last segment of the show is Kristian Alfonso (out of character) addressing viewers, saying “I am Kristian Alfonso…on behalf of all of us here in Salem, in front of the cameras and behind the scenes, we are happy you could be here with us today to share some of the magical memories of the first 40 years of Days of Our Lives….” She then invites everyone to log on to the website http://www.alicesfamilytree.com/ for more…as the previews show…
Marlena (to John): I have something to tell you that is very important…(John): Is it good news or not?...
Kate: Please God…let me be wrong…because if it’s true…it will destroy them…
Shawn (to Mimi): There is something I want to say. (Mimi): If you are going to tell me you love me…don’t…
Jen (to Abby): Now I can’t reach Frankie either…
Frankie (on the bridge): Someone went off the bridge…(and as he looks over the edge): Oh GOD no!!...
