This is what happens when you don’t check in on things regularly. Paul has a website now. It is basically set up as a resume for casting directors, not for fans — seriously couldn’t he add a page with basic fan info??? But still it is a nice catch up on what he’s been doing and some lovely photos where he’s smiling. So many of his glossies are him looking serious and he has such a lovely smile. There’s even one where he does my favorite eyebrow scrunch that I adore. I had seen about half these photos and I try to follow him pretty well so you probably haven’t seen them either.

When You Walked Into My Life By Shelley

September 5, 2016

To make it easier to direct people to this story I wanted to put all the chapter links in a single post, in other words do a link roundup. This story is in the nonmob fanfic category. This is a fic that I rescued with help from readers (thanks!) taking chapters from various sources and have republished.

Manny in the Surf

Manny in the Surf

“When You Walked Into My Life” – SanCorp CEO Danny Santos has just been named one of America’s 5 top bachelors by People Magazine and his friend and co-worker Bill Lewis wants to take him out to celebrate at a strip club. He reluctantly agrees and is glad he did when some of his employees start harassing one of the waitresses there who desperately needs the money she earns there to help pay for raising her sick daughter. Danny rescues her and suddenly discovers he’s found just what he was looking for to put some meaning and happiness in his life. They live such different lives Michelle is afraid it will never work, but she feels safer in his arms than she’s ever felt. He asks her to go to a charity ball with him, but she can’t afford a dress. He sends her shopping with his sister Pilar, who thinks maybe for once her brother has found someone who could make him happy and isn’t just after his money and fame. Danny gives Michelle a job as his new personal assistant, takes the news of her daughter well, but still has to deal with trouble from work.

Sadly this is an incomplete fic. What’s here is great though.

Michelle and Danny Search For Carmen Aug 9 10 2001

September 2, 2016

Check out our latest episode guide post.

Charter Fragment

Thurs., Aug. 9, 2001 – At Company: Frank and Buzz are talking when Michelle comes in. She asks to speak to Frank. She tells Frank that she found out some more on her theory of Carmen. She tells him about the intern, Jennifer Tarver, that disappeared from the ER the night Carmen died and she never came back. Frank still doubts the theory. Michelle asks him to follow up on the intern. Michelle is sure about this. Frank tells her that he has a bad feeling about this. She begs him to help her prove it. Michelle tells Frank to think of Robbie and help them. He finally agrees to help. He is going to try to find the intern. Michelle asks him not to say anything to Danny and Frank agrees. He leaves and Michelle looks at the paper she found in the interns belongings and leaves. Danny and Tony meet outside. Tony tells Danny he has been looking into things and he has Romeo on Lucas. Danny tells him that they have to hurry for Michelle’s sake. Romeo comes in with Lucas Carmichael, a former flunky of Carmen’s who was paid to purger himself testifying against Danny, with a serious gambling problem. Romeo leaves and Danny asks Lucas who paid him off. Lucas tries to leave and Tony reminds him of the $80,000 he owes Infierno. Lucas tells him he has money coming. They offer to pick up his marker at the club if he answers some questions. The guy tells them that he got a message shortly after Carmen’s death that told him to go to a shack in Laurel Falls. He tells them he got there and someone put a blindfold on him. They took him inside and told him to go down to the docks and throw something in the water. It was a canvas bag that was heavy that had metal clanging inside. He dumped the bag and stripped the car. He also remembers he smelled roses at the shack. Lucas leaves and Danny tells Tony that Carmen always wore “Royal Rose” perfume. He knows Carmen is alive but for now they should keep it to themselves. Danny comes inside Company and tells Frank he needs his help. At Laurel Falls: Michelle comes upon the shack while thinking back to the night Carmen died. She goes into the shack and looks around. She doesn’t find anything and starts to leave when a bat flies through and scares her. She runs outside and thinks she didn’t find anything. She remembers the woodstove inside and goes back to search it. Michelle finds a piece of paper that says Springfield Airport. It’s part of a logo from an invoice or a piece of letterhead and it says “and Sons Air Charter” at the Springfield Airport.

Fri., Aug. 10, 2001 – At Company: Danny asks for Frank’s help. David sticks his nose in the conversation and tells Danny that if it is official he can talk to him as well. Danny tells them that he thinks Michelle may be in trouble, he believes Carmen is still alive. Claire calls Michelle on the phone: “Ever get a feeling that you can’t shake, like someone you love is about to jump off a high rise?”  David accuses Danny of trying to play them to save his own hide. Frank tells Danny that Michelle is thinking the same thing and investigating herself. Danny is getting upset and tells Frank that if Carmen is alive, Michelle is in danger and he needs his help. Frank doesn’t really believe the theory of Carmen being alive, but knows that if she were Danny would be right to worry about Michelle’s safety. Frank tells Danny about the intern Michelle wants him to find. David thinks the whole thing is bunk and thinks Frank is crazy to listen to it. Danny tells Frank that all this time they haven’t had a trace of Carmen and now all of the sudden there are clues popping up all over about her being alive. He knows his mother and tells Frank that she covers her tracks unless she wants to be found. He thinks she is setting Michelle up. Frank tells him he will look into the intern thing but that is all he can do. He leaves and David goes to make some calls while watching Danny. Danny tries over and over to get Michelle on her cell but there is no answer. Claire comes over and tells Danny that she has talked to Michelle and she thinks she is after Carmen. She also tells him that while she was on the phone she heard an announcement for a plane to Montreal. Danny leaves. At the Airport: Michelle tries to get an airport employee to tell her about a chartered airline. She showed them the paper she located at Laurel Falls with the letterhead of the airline and asks to speak to the man in charge. While she is waiting, Claire calls and begs her to let her help. Michelle tells her she will talk to her later and ends the call. Shortly after, the head of the airline comes over and she asks him if he can tell her who chartered their plane on a certain date last year. He tells her he can’t help her with his private clients. Michelle pretends to start crying and then spins a story about looking for her birth mother because she is dying and needs a transplant. The man tells her he will check his records for her. He brings out the record book and verifies that an injured woman traveled on the dates she was talking about from Springfield to Bear Lake, Canada. Michelle asks him how fast he can get her there. He goes to check and brings back a ticket on a commercial airline that will take Michelle to Montreal and from there his man will meet with her and take her on to Bear Lake. Michelle thinks it’s a little odd he’s suddenly so helpful, but thanks him and goes to board the plane. She passes one of Carmen’s thugs and seems to recognize him. She goes on to the plane. The thug calls someone and tells him or her that Michelle is on her way. Danny arrives at the airport and begs them to get his wife off the plane. They tell him he can’t go on the plane without a ticket and he throws a credit card at the stewardess telling her to sell him one. David has followed him and goes over and arrests Danny. Danny yells out for Michelle to get off the plane. Meanwhile, at the shed in Laurel Falls, Carmen is happy that Michelle is on her way to Canada. Just then Michelle burst in the shack and tells Carmen she didn’t take the bait.

My Comments: I tell you whenever Danny and Michelle hide things from each other bad stuff happens, even when it’s to protect each other. This is a great example of that. I love Michelle working Frank – upset he didn’t think of it first (Frank never solves anything), that Robbie would be growing up without a father like Frank did. I love it when they key into history in conversations between characters who’ve known each other a long time. I’m sorry Frank didn’t tell Danny right away though. He knows the trouble these two can get into when they aren’t together. Claire is acting like she might have if she and Fletcher had stayed together and raised Michelle. I’m so sorry this is it. I’m a little surprised Claire doesn’t follow Michelle’s train of thought faster though. Claire can be a good detective in her own right. I’m glad they brought up Lucas Carmichael again. It’s nice to use a loose end. I truly hate that they dump all this bad stuff on Laurel Falls. Laurel Falls deserves better than this. I’m sorry that David picked this moment to swing back obsessed with getting the Santos family. He could at least have checked the plane. This cliffhanger is really great because this is the first time that viewers find out for sure that it IS Carmen and she’s alive.

Paul Question from back in 1995

September 1, 2016

In the July 25, 1995 issue of Soap Opera Weekly the “Any Questions?” section featured this question.

Q: What can you tell me about Paul Anthony Stewart (ex-Casey Bowman, Loving)? ….. K. Tesch, Chicago

A: Stewart went to Princeton University. His theater credits include Playing with Fire (After Frankenstein) in New York and as Christian in the Broadway production of Cyrano, for when he was nominated for a Tony. Before joining Loving he was in Woody Allen’s Shadows and Fog. The actor now divides his time between New York and Los Angeles. ….

It includes a poor quality photo…the magazine is printed on newsprint paper… of Paul in his Cyrano costume. He’s very dashing and still rocking the longer hair (personally I prefer it shorter, but to each his own). On the left see him pictured with the longer hair as Loving‘s Casey.

Something About You – Part 24 by ShellyLynn

August 17, 2016

Republisher’s Note: I was putting together a directory post and realized somehow I missed Chapter 24 when I was republishing the chapters so here it is now. Watch for a directory post putting things in order soon if you want to read the whole thing.

Something About You – Part 24 by ShellyLynn

Danny paced back and forth along the hospital hallway. They arrived there almost an hour ago and Michelle still hadn’t opened her eyes the last Danny knew. He overheard the doctor say that she was dehydrated and suffering from exhaustion. That coupled with the alcohol in her body was able to cause her to collapse.

He shook his head back and forth as he tried to drown out the nagging voice that kept leaping to the forefront. Despite the scene that he just witnessed, he was more upset with himself than anything. He knew that she had been working entirely too hard lately, barely eating and he had considered the fact that she shouldn’t be drinking champagne on an empty stomach more than once. He mentally chastised himself for allowing her to continue. He had just been so happy, so focused on asking her to be his wife that he had failed to put her health first. If anything major resulted from this lapse he knew he would never forgive himself for his selfish actions.

He looked at Mikey, sleeping soundly in the chair across the hallway, at least he was doing well. He’d been so scared when they first arrived at the hospital, but it was past his bedtime and he was so tired that he quickly fell asleep in the plastic chair.

Danny looked down the hallway toward Michelle’s room as he brushed a stray curl out of his nephew’s eyes. He could still see Bill Lewis and Ed Bauer talking outside her door. If he listened closely, he could hear Ed comforting Bill and promising him that she would be fine and the wedding would go on as scheduled. He sighed and ran his fingers through his own hair with his free hand. Had Michelle been lying to him all along? Had she really been using him while planning on marrying Bill?

No, that wasn’t true, he assured himself. She wasn’t faking the way she looked at him, the way they were together. She had feelings for him, just as he did her. They were wrong about her answer to Bill’s proposal and she would tell them as soon as she woke up. He was sure of it.

He looked on as Mr. Lewis turned in his direction and stared him down. He knew Bill didn’t like his presence here, but he didn’t care. He didn’t blame the man for making this attempt at winning Michelle’s hand. Hell, if he were in the same position, he might have done the same thing. Michelle Bauer was the most amazing woman he’d ever met and if it took some underhanded actions to win the chance to spend the rest of his life with her, he’d be just as willing as Bill to do what was necessary.

The person Danny was truly upset with was her father. If he knew his daughter at all, if he had been there for her, then he would know that this wasn’t what she would want. He would understand that the wonderful women she had become was strong and caring, that she didn’t care about money or power. He would realize that marrying Bill Lewis would mean nothing to her because she didn’t love Bill, not the way she loved him. He knew Mr. Bauer would not take the news of their relationship easily. He would be forced to get used to the fact that his only daughter’s heart belonged to a lowly college student who only recently gained the ability to buy more expensive meals than macaroni and cheese for himself and his young nephew.

He noticed that the men were leaving, probably going to grab a cup of coffee or something and he decided this was the perfect chance to see if he could at least get a peek into her room. He needed something to assure himself that she would be all right. Even just a glimpse of her would help to set his mind at ease.

******

“Danny?” Michelle said, slowly opening her eyes and letting them adjust to the bright light in the room. Her eyes searched all over, noticing the machines and tubes surrounding her. “Where am I?”

“You are in Cedars hospital, Miss Bauer,” the nurse said quietly, “Your father and Mr. Lewis went to the cafeteria. They’ll be right back, I’ll go tell them you are awake.”

“Bill?” she asked, surprised. “No,” she said quickly, halting the nurse’s progress toward the door as her memory of the night’s events came flooding back. “Is Danny here?”

She prayed that he was, she had to explain that she had no idea what was coming when she walked up on the stage, that she didn’t want to marry Bill, she wanted to marry him. “Danny?” the nurse asked in confusion.

“Danny Santos… tall, dark, extremely handsome. He probably has a young boy with him…”

“Oh, yes… I think he’s here,” the nurse said, smiling slightly. So that was the reason for the lines etched into the face of the gorgeous man down the hall. He must know Miss Bauer and he’s worried about her. Maybe she would be willing to help her get a date with him. After all, he couldn’t be anything more than a friend to her, Mr. Lewis was Miss Bauer’s fiancee.

“Would you like me to get him as well?”

“No, I want you to get only him,” she stressed. “I don’t want either my father or Bill Lewis in here.”

“But… Are you sure?”

“That’s what I want,” she reaffirmed. “Please bring him in.” She had plenty that she wanted to say to the other two men, but her first concern was Danny. She knew he must be worried sick about her.

The nurse left the room and approached Danny. “Mr. Santos?” she asked. When he nodded in the affirmative, she smiled sweetly and continued, “Miss Bauer asked to see you.”

“She’s awake?” he asked in surprise.

“She just woke up a few minutes ago. She’s quite tired and a little disoriented, but she’s going to be fine. She just needs to get some rest.”

He reached for the doorknob before pulling his hand back. What was he going to say? What would she tell him? He took a deep breath and turned the knob, walking through the door. Everything would be fine. “Thank God you’re okay,” he said as soon as he saw her beautiful eyes from across the room.

“I’m fine,” she said, easing into a sitting position. “I just overdid it.”

“Yeah, and all the champagne you drank earlier didn’t help,” he scolded slightly, too relieved to be upset with her.

“I know,” she sighed, reaching for his hand. “About what happened earlier. “I didn’t have any…”

“We don’t have to talk about this now…”

“Danny,” she said, forcing his eyes to meet hers as he settled into the chair by her bed. “Let me say this. I had no idea that was going to happen. I thought I made it perfectly clear to Bill that our relationship was purely platonic. I guess I was wrong to just assume he understood. I’m so sorry you had to witness that.”

“Hey, you had nothing to do with it. Don’t apologize.”

“I have to, because it’s my fault. You warned me about him and I didn’t listen to you,” she told him, as he brought her hand to his lips.

“It doesn’t matter,” he said, shaking his head. “I just know that it’s going to make it even harder for us to explain things to your father. He seems really excited about the prospect of your marriage to Bill.”

“I didn’t even think of that,” she grimaced.

“Are you okay?” he asked quickly, not liking the look of pain on her face.

“My throat’s dry,” she said hoarsely.

He reached for the pitcher of water on the table to his left and poured her a glass. “You need fluids,” he told her, as he pointed to the IV in her arm as evidence and brought the cool liquid to her parched lips “and to take better care of yourself.”

“Yes sir,” she said with a mock salute.

He took her hand in his once again as he spoke, “When I saw you fall to the ground, I was so worried. I can’t even tell you the kind of things that started running through my head.”

“I’m fine,” she smiled, motioning for him to join her on the bed. “Come here”

He moved to sit along side her and she leaned in to give him a hug. “I don’t know what I’d do if I lost you.”

“You won’t,” she answered, “I’m going to live for at least another fifty years so get used to it.”

“She already has a visitor. Sir, she doesn’t want to see you…” the voice came from the hallway as the door burst open.

“What the hell are you doing here Santos? Get your hands off my fiancee!”

Danny and Michelle Are At Cross Purposes Aug 7 8 2001

August 16, 2016

Check out our latest episode guide post.

Tues., Aug. 7, 2001 – After Michelle tells Frank her theory, Danny and Rick come out of Company. Danny tells Michelle Ross wants him to take a plea. They both agree they want to keep fighting, but awkwardly don’t tell each other their plans. Danny tells Tony he needs his help. He thinks Carmen might be alive. If she is Danny, Robbie, and especially Michelle are in terrible danger. Danny wants Tony to use his connections to see what he can learn. Danny tells Tony that he knows he is back in the business and he hopes it works for him but he wishes he wouldn’t go that way. Tony is hostile and tells Danny he can no longer boss him around. Danny tells him he understands how he feels but if Carmen is alive someone will end up dead soon and it could be Tony. At the very least she will turn him into her personal gopher. If Carmen is alive, she had to have help and that help is either Maria, Carlos, or Bernardo, Tony’s new friends. If that happened they weren’t up front with Tony, which puts him on Carmen’s list too, just like him and Michelle. He warns Tony that Carmen plays for keeps. Again, Danny asks for Tony’s help. Tony tells him he will help him. Danny goes on to tell Tony that Carmen’s henchman Lucas Carmichael knows something and he may be able to get him to talk. Tony says Lucas has a gambling problem and owes a lot to Infierno; he may be able to use that. Danny asks Tony not to tell Michelle anything and he says he won’t. At the hospital: Michelle comes in and asks Claire what she remembers about the night Carmen was killed on the docks. Claire tells her there wasn’t much going on that night. Michelle asks if anything or anyone acted strangely that night. Claire remembers an intern named Jennifer Tarver leaving after a phone call during the middle of the shift. She thought it was weird because the girl reeked of ambition, just like she had at that age. The funny thing was she left and then never came back. Claire tells Michelle that about a week later they received a fax that said she had moved to Europe following a boyfriend but Claire didn’t think it rang true. She left all her things and they still have them storage at the hospital. At Michelle’s request Claire goes and gets the box of things the Intern had left and Michelle goes through it. Claire keeps asking Michelle what she is looking for and Michelle tells her she isn’t sure. Michelle finds a piece of paper and sticks it in her pocket. Claire takes the box back and Michelle looks at the paper. It says, “Laurel Falls”, on it. Michelle isn’t surprised Carmen used their shack there the last time she played dead and no one had been on their land since construction on the house stopped. Claire comes back and Michelle tells her that she has to go but asks her not to mention any of this to Danny. Claire promises.

 

Wed., Aug. 8, 2001 – At Millennium: Danny comes in asking for Tony. He isn’t there so he goes to a table to call him. Claire comes in and tells Danny that she is worried about Michelle who is going around asking tons of questions trying to get him out of trouble. She is on the trail of Carmen. Claire gets a call and leaves after telling Danny not to let Michelle do his dirty work. Danny calls Tony again and leaves another message. While he is out of the room, Michelle comes in to meet Rick.

My Comments: The idea that Carmen survived this was only possible because they wanted the character back. It makes no sense. I really like Danny’s opening to Tony of how Michelle and he love Tony and hope he can get out when he wants. It’s just got such a married couple feel and I think is a great base touch. This is one of the last times that Claire and Michelle really connect. This is kind of the relationship they might have had if Fletcher Reade and Claire had married and co-raised Michelle with Maureen and Ed. I’m sorry it’s the last real piece of that we see of the Claire that once was. There was little enough of it during this Claire return.

So do you think the rough background comment just meant intern Jennifer Traver was desperate for money and power or that she would have had previous connections with the Santos Family? Wouldn’t the fact that the henchman suddenly came into a lot of money after he testifies been interesting to someone Tony? Maybe you could have spoken up earlier.

I truly hate how they kept dumping bad stuff on the Laurel Falls house site. I REALLY wanted Manny to get that house.

Typical Evening With Claire and Michelle

August 11, 2016

Ed Takes Michelle from Claire 1986One of the things that comes up a lot having to do with Michelle’s history is was Michelle a bad mother? Before all this happened when Claire Ramsey was with Fletcher Reade before he broke her – and broke my heart I never forgave him – Claire was smart, funny, strong, but vulnerable. You wouldn’t know any of that from this.

In this clip from March 11, 1986 Claire, who has just overheard Maureen and Ed want full custody of Michelle is scheming to keep her. However, she really doesn’t want to take care of her. Claire seems to think of Michelle as a doll. Claire wants to play with Michelle at Claire’s convenience and be able to stick her in back in the box when Claire has other things to do. Claire doesn’t want to take care of her.

Claire has been conspiring to get the goods on Rick and is “rewarding” one of her students for helping with her plan on the couch. Michelle starts crying and Claire said she’s going to ignore her. Her crying is so strong that Ed hears it across the courtyard at the Bauer House, comes over to the garage apartment, and in a move FAR more typical of his awesome brother Mike, bursts open the door, goes and gets Michelle and strides out completely ignoring Claire. In fact Ed strides so fast this blur is the best screen shot I could get of it.

That’s not the end of this story. Claire intends to fight for Michelle and she plans to fight dirty. I’ve got more of this story coming, but I wanted to give anyone a heads up on what a typical Michelle and Claire evening at home was like.

Did Carmen Cheat Death Again Aug 3 6 2001

July 26, 2016

Fri., August 3, 2001 – At Company: Rick, Michelle and Danny are about to go in when Danny tells them that he has lost his appetite. They are all upset about the judge not declaring a mistrial but Rick thinks it may be best; the jury has to have serious doubts with all the tainted evidence in the case. Danny reminds Rick that he did admit to killing his mother on the stand. Michelle tells Danny that she has been thinking about it and the more she thinks the more she comes to the same conclusion. Michelle thinks they need one more break like realizing the body was a fake. A bell goes off in Michelle’s head as she thinks about faking the body. She points out the body that was pulled out of the water was weighted down with chains, just like his mother’s body. Only someone who was there that night would know that detail. How could Gus have found out? Danny thinks someone saw them. Michelle thinks there might be more to it. The only reason she can think of for someone to go to all the trouble of creating that fake body is if the real body wasn’t there. The only person with any reason to set this up is Carmen herself. Maybe Carmen is behind all of this? Danny says Carmen is dead. Her body was cold when he put it into the water. He tells her that they are both just stressed but his mother cannot hurt them anymore. Danny tells Michelle that he has to swing by the courthouse for some papers and asks if she wants to go along. She tells her that she needs to get back to relieve Meta from babysitting. Danny leaves and Michele calls and asks Meta if she can sit with Robbie a bit longer. Rick is sitting at a table still in thought when Danny comes in. He asks if Rick has seen Michelle. She had told him that she was going home to relieve Meta of babysitting but when he called Meta told him that Michelle called to extend her time. Now, Michelle isn’t answering her cell phone. At the Docks: Michelle gets to the docks and looks around. She sits down rethinking through the night and looking for clues. She wonders if Carmen is in the lake somewhere or not. She thinks she may be overreacting and gets up to leave. When she turns, she runs into someone who had been watching her.

Mon., Aug. 6, 2001 – At the Docks: The man that came upon Michelle tells her that he is a fisherman named Pete and he is there everyday and every night. She asks him about the day last year and he tells her he remembers it because something strange happened that night. He tells her he heard a shot and when he finally made his way over in his row boat he saw something floating over to the shore and then two men dressed in black drug it out of the lake and placed it in the back of their car, then they left like nothing ever happened. Michelle believes the men pulled Carmen out of the lake. Ross tells Danny that he could very well be sent to prison and he thinks he should at least entertain the thought of a plea bargain, ten to twelve for manslaughter. Danny can’t think of that without talking it over with Michelle. He cannot imagine losing that much time with his son. Ross tells him that if he doesn’t take the deal, he may never get to see Robbie again. Ross reminds him that he has two things going against him. He killed his mother and he is a Santos. Juries are strange and those two things may be all they need. Danny tells him he will discuss it with his wife. Ross asks if he has heard from Gus and Danny tells him he hasn’t. Ross says he may come by to get even, he showed up at Ross’ house that morning trying to cause trouble. He still isn’t quite sure why Gus hasn’t admitted to faking the body and dental records when he has admitted to everything else. Danny thinks about what Michelle told him about Carmen possibly being behind everything. Ross leaves and Danny can’t believe she may be right. He goes to Rick and tells him he has to talk to him. He tells him about Michelle’s theory and why he thinks it is possible but he doesn’t want to encourage or scare Michelle just yet. Meanwhile, outside Company, Michelle tells Frank her thoughts and why she doesn’t want to tell Danny just yet. They both are thinking the same thing and both not telling each other because they want to protect the other. Meanwhile, Frank and Rick both think it is impossible. Michelle leaves to go see Claire and Danny calls Tony and asks him for his help.

My Comments: I love this look on Danny when he’s standing outside Company. The sunglasses are amazing. Michelle’s outfit is truly cute too. And here we are a sticky point when Michelle brings up Carmen. This is all too sensitive a subject for Danny. Of course he doesn’t want to have killed his mother. He doesn’t want to think about what happened, but the LAST time Michelle said Carmen was behind something she was AND the time before that AND the time before that AND the time before that. You’d think Danny would have learned to say OK, it’s probably Carmen let’s see. This is one of the problems that Manny have to work through this keeping things from each other even to protect each other it never goes well. Whenever they don’t tell each other everything, even something that they think is protecting the other, bad things happen. I had recently given the writers a round of applause for the excellent red herring work on Gus Aitoro’s real identity. This is another excellent series of red herrings. It’s great writing.

Peek at Baby Michelle

July 25, 2016

Michelle’s babyhood was contentious. She was the product of grief sex between Claire Ramsey and Ed Bauer when they thought Fletcher Reade and Maureen Bauer had been killed in a terrorist attack. Luckily they were wrong, but they covered up their mistake for the sake of their relationships. Eventually everyone figured out what happened. Fletcher dumped Claire and broke Claire and my heart. Maureen was hurt, but stood with Ed and took on a lot of the childcare of Michelle right from the beginning.

I had adored Claire when she was with Fletcher, but honestly she was broken and frankly Michelle was not safe in her care. That said this particular clip shows a nice bit when Claire is taking care of Michelle on her own. Michelle is a happy baby on a rocking horse and I thought everyone here would enjoy it.

The scene takes place in the garage apartment at the Bauer House. Claire lived there at the time and had moved in again in 2001 until she moved in with Alan.

I was a Michelle fan from the very beginning so I was delighted to find this happy little peek at Baby Michelle.

Will There Be a Mistrial August 2 2001

July 22, 2016

Thurs., Aug. 2, 2001 – At the Bauer House: Danny and Michelle are still celebrating. We start with a just terriffic walk through of the Bauer kitchen. You want to see the Bauer kitchen in the early 2000s this is probably your best bet. Danny is singing he’s so happy as they work together to make breakfast. They discuss the case and that it’s likely Aitoro will be fired.

Danny: “…I feel like I can breathe again. Like I don’t have a million fingers pointing at me. Like I can make love to my wife.[breaks off kissing her]…I even slept last night.”

Michelle: Laughs “No you didn’t.” Kisses and laughter continue.

Danny: “I LOVE this counter.”

Michelle is pleased Danny is in a happy and optimistic mood. They read the newspaper together and the headlines say that the feds are embarrassed by tainted evidence in the Santos case. The article goes on to say that the feds will not retry the case if it there is a mistrial. It also states that they will not pursue any charges against Michelle. Danny is happy that Michelle is cleared at least. Michelle thinks after it is all over they should take Robbie on his first vacation to celebrate. Danny thinks Robbie wouldn’t remember the vacation, so they should take the vacation themselves, alone. Danny: “We can rent a boat and sail the Caribbean. We could go to Hawaii. You always wanted to go to Hawaii.” Michelle wonders who would tend to Robbie. Danny thinks Meta would do it. Just then Meta and Claire come in and Claire tells them that she would love to watch Robbie. Michelle tells Claire to go home. Claire understands that Michelle is still angry but she insists the only reason she talked to the feds was because she wanted to protect Michelle. She congratulate them exposing Gus. Claire says if the judge rules it a mistrial Danny will be free too. Michelle didn’t believe her sincerity but Claire insists she wants Danny to be free. She tells Michelle that Gus was on a mission and no one could stand in his way. Meta isn’t impressed. Claire asks Michelle for a chance to make things right. She wants to babysit for Robbie. Michelle isn’t ready for that and Danny tells her they are trying to start over. Claire thinks that Danny might want to try a new career and offers to set up a meeting with him and Alan. Meta tells Claire that Danny doesn’t need her or Alan and Danny says he doesn’t want to talk to Alan. Michelle says they will pass on the offer. Claire says the truth is she wants to be part of Michelle’s life. She has made horrible mistakes and seems to keep making them. Nothing has been right since she gave her up as a baby but that shouldn’t stop Danny from at least talk to Alan. Claire thinks Danny could start a new life for his wife and son. She wonders if someone else made the offer would they not consider it? She offers again to set up a meeting with Danny and Alan and Danny finally agrees to meet with him. Michelle is humming their theme song when Danny comes back down. Danny kisses her and tells her he is glad she’s happy. He tells Michelle that he told Claire he would meet with Alan to get rid of her but he thinks he will really meet with him and see what he says. Ross arrives and Michelle asks him if he saw the newspaper. Ross says the judge ruled against a mistrial and now the jury has to decide if what Danny did was justifiable. Michelle and Danny are disappointed.

My Comments: I truly enjoy this episode the morning after the counter encounter is almost as good as it is. Danny is just SO dang happy it makes you smile. The fact that he’s actually singing. Michelle is humming with happiness. I think that this is how their everyday life would be. There’s a Springfield Journal. I’m still on a quest to get one of those. This one would be perfect if only it had a photo of them. It would still be close to perfect. In Claire’s defense, while I think Michelle is right I think Claire actually BELIEVES she did it for Michelle. This is a beginning of a turning point both for Claire and the Manny storyline.
