Watching EJ take a swig of wine during Arianna’s memorial service just seemed really inappropriate. Why would they have a service for her there? I know she worked there…but who the heck has a memorial service at their workplace?
Just another Salem oddity I suppose!November 5, 2010 at 11:13 pm #17784
but the rest of us live in the real world where a church or funeral home has the memorial service – then afterwards (especially in Ireland) then you go to the pub and toast the dearly departed.November 6, 2010 at 12:22 am #17788drea4713Participant
I think they had a memorial somewhere that was intimate and just for family, but this was more open for friends and such. I can buy it. I think it’s just an Irish thing, saying a farewell.November 6, 2010 at 12:50 am #17792justwonderingParticipant
THe funderal was held in her home town. Sami arranged for this tribute and it is an Irish tradition to have a gathering at a pub.November 6, 2010 at 1:18 am #17795
but why the heck did Sami arrange the tribute? Still looking for the tape? For Rafe? Sami is the biggest friggin’ hypocrite on the planet! She is down to her last two nickels with me.November 6, 2010 at 2:14 am #17796cornbreadParticipant
the Brady’s are Irish….they were only her employers/friends. Arianna Hernandez isn’t exactly a good ole’ Irish nameNovember 6, 2010 at 11:54 am #17799BonbonParticipant
from the funeral just before the memorial. That’s when Sami asked about his mother (who was conspicously absent from the memorial) and how she was doing. I guess this was just something Sami wanted to do for Rafe. I will admit a pub doesn’t seem to be such an appropriate place though. There IS a Catholic church in Salem.November 6, 2010 at 1:58 pm #17804PattiParticipant
so some sort of private service was held, and what was done at the pub was a wake. I don’t think Sami was being hypocritical at all. She asked Rafe if she could help and she went about arranging the memorial at the Pub because Arianna did work there and she invited the people who best knew Arianna to share their fondest memories of her. I thought she was being very supportive of Rafe and Gabi and the Pub was the perfect place to hold this very traditional memorial, especially since Arianna worked there. I don’t think she had the tape or anything else on her mind when she planned it other than to show Rafe and Gabi that there were many Salemites who thought very highly of Arianna.November 6, 2010 at 7:42 pm #17818majencoParticipant
Also Arianna lived over the pub and was close to Caroline so I didn’t think it was so bad.November 6, 2010 at 10:38 pm #17825SWParticipant
BUDGET! lol They can’t afford to keep recreating places that they won’t use for more than a short scene is my guess.November 6, 2010 at 11:29 pm #17830
the Pub I can see why they would hold it there. Guess this means though, no one will ever get married or Christened or buried at the church again since it’s so much cheaper to put up the fake flowers and trees and call it a park or cemetery.November 6, 2010 at 11:40 pm #17834BonoSugaRayParticipant
am i the only one who thinks that the reason why the writers didn’t write her memorial scene to be in an actual church/funeral home, is because they don’t have that set anymore? It was probably cheaper to just have it on the Brady Pub set/save money… lol Just a thought.November 6, 2010 at 11:44 pm #17835DeeLanParticipant
Maybe that’s why Chloe and Daniel weren’t married in the church either.November 7, 2010 at 1:08 am #17843BonoSugaRayParticipant
lol It’s possible…November 7, 2010 at 1:55 am #17844majencoParticipant
Totally agreed. The sets are dwindling. Soon everyone will just live in the Salem apartments above the Pub and that will be it.
