Days of our Lives: January 24 Live Thoughts
Days of our Lives: January 24 Live Thoughts
On today/s Days of our Lives, Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) are surfing the Internets for the Celtic woman warrior symbol that is tattooed on the dude who kidnapped Claire.

In the hospital, Philip (Jay Kenneth Johnson) and the nurse scold Belle (Martha Madison) for trying to get out of bed.  Belle is still frantic about finding Claire, but seeing as she is suffering from the vapors, there isn't a whole lot she can do to help.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) is still hard at work trying to access the lower reaches of John's brain, but he resists.

Marlena offers to feed John (Drake Hogestyn), since he's still in handcuffs.  She tells him that Dr. Carrington wants to transfer him to the psycho ward.  Obviously, John is none too happy about it, so Marlena offers him a deal: she won't sign the transfer paperwork if he tells her what his mission from Stefano is.

Nick (Blake Berris) is unhappy with Chelsea (Rachel Melvin) for not coming clean to the police about Ford Decker's death.  She rehashes the events of yesterday's Days of our Lives, saying that Stephanie convinced the other girls to keep the secret.  Nick, however, promises to stay with Chelsea throughout all of this and not break up with her.  Meanwhile, the cop who came to the sorority house on yesterday's episode tells Bo (Peter Reckell) his suspicions that the girls are hiding something.

Nick promises to stay with Chelsea but he still wants her to confess to the police.

Shawn has an idea to find out more about Crystal.

Marlena suggests that they use hypnosis to uncover John's memories, but he says no.  Philip brings Belle over to John's room, and they reveal that John has already been transferred to the psycho ward.  So, Marlena has been lying to him.  This is a sure-fire way to gain his trust, I'm guessing.

Bo pays Chelsea a surprise visit at the sorority house.  He is here as a cop, not her father, and wants her to tell everything she knows about Ford.

Shawn is playing junior detective and plans to break into the store front where Marlena first met Crystal.  He's going to do a little investigating on the down-low and he's going to keep it a secret from Bo.

Belle wants to know why John is chained to his bed.  I don't know if it's because of her vapors, but Belle is showing today that she is approximately the same emotional age as Claire.  Out in the hallway, Marlena explains that he doesn't remember a darn thing.

Bo gets firm with Chelsea and tells her to do what's right.

Chloe won't let Shawn play detective by himself.  But he won't back down, so she decides to go with him.  They go to the storefront and hear that someone is inside.

Dr. Carrington pumps John full of meds as Marlena comes back into the room.  John begs her to stop the drugs, but she can't.

Chelsea sticks to her story, looking like a little felon.  Bo lays the parenting guilt-trip on thick, reminding her of what happened with Zack.  Bo hasn't really parented her in at least the past six months of Days of our Lives, and he chooses now to start?

Shawn decides to go into the store.  How many times has he jumped into something without thinking?  When will he ever learn?  A bald dude opens the door and Shawn flashes the Celtic knot symbol.

Next on Days of our Lives: Shawn gets captured, Stephanie wants to talk to Steve, Marlena talks to Stefano.
