Looks like Days Of Our Lives is joining General Hospital in buying stock in whichever company it is that makes latex masks so lifelike they not only fool from a distance, even kissing doesn’t give the deception away.
Kristen (Stacey Haiduk) has got herself a Nicole (Arianne Zucker) mask, and she plans to use it to lure Brady (Eric Martsolf) into bed… and more. (Is her whole body also covered in Nicole-costume latex?)
Will her plan succeed? What almost 5,000 viewers are thinking:
Take a Step Back, Jack
Are you kidding, 91% of the audience can’t believe we’re even asking this question. Even Brady isn’t that stupid. Even a drunk Brady isn’t that stupid — and he’s cold stone sober these days; Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is the one hitting the sauce.
There is no way this plan of Kristen’s can work, if only because Brady is in no mood to go down the Nicole road again. She already dumped him once for Eric (Greg Vaughan). Who is to say she wouldn’t do it again?
And, even if they did reunite, then Brady would have to deal with sad-sack Eric moping around, looking all dewy-eyed and put-upon. Nobody wants that.
But, most importantly – latex! She’s wearing a latex Nicole mask! This is not the basis for a healthy, sound, or SANE relationship. The woman will crack… likely before her mask does.
On the other hand, there are the 9% of you who figure, yeah, Brady actually is that stupid. And he doesn’t give a damn how many times Eric breaks into tears. Brady has a score to settle with his brother — and Nicole. What better way to do than to get back together with her? That’ll make them both suffer!
But what will Brady do as ‘Nicole’ grows weirder and weirder? Eh, if he hasn’t noticed up to this point, he probably never will.
