As we begin to see the final months of Alison Sweeney’s time as Sami Brady on Days of our Lives, the fan favorite has begun a fun social media look back at the memorable moments of Sami’s antics throughout the years!

Yesterday, Alison posted on her official facebook page: “Hey #Days fans! So, as you probably already know by now, I’ve already bid Salem farewell, but my scenes will be airing for a few more months. Having been a part of Days of our Lives since I was 16, I feel like I’ve grown up with many of you, and it’s so hard to say goodbye to all of you, and to Sami too.

This entire year feels so nostalgic, and I know it must feel the same way for you all too. So I wanted to celebrate my 22nd year as Sami with some of my favorite memories, and I hope you will chime in with your favorite moments too. I thought I’d used the hashtag #DaysofSami to keep it all in one place.  And if you have any suggestions – I’d love to hear them! Twitter user @Tmoore8114’s idea of Top Ten Lists is fantastic, I’m going start with that.  So here we go…”

And with that, Alison began her first list of Top Ten Chick Fights beginning with ” Sami and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) duke it out in the Hospital near Christmas.”

Sweeney noted on the fight scene: “Ari and I have always loved playing the physical aspect of ‘Sole’ (if Sami and Nicole had a shipper name). This particular one stands out for me because I remember some sort of stuffed holiday elf doll from the hospital set became an unwitting prop in our fight. The crew got such a kick out of our confrontation – as soon as the stage manager yelled ‘cut’ some of the behind-the-scenes people got in line wanting a chance to whack-a-mole with the stuffed elf. it was hilarious. You never know what’s going to happen when Sami & Nicole go at it!”

So, what other Sami brawl’s between the gals should be on this list? Weigh-in!

Definitely the Sami/Nicole fight when Nicole came back to Salem after kidnapping Sydney!! And then Rafe had to break it up in the Town Square!!!

All the Sami fights are memorable….at least in the few years I’ve been watching. But, let’s give some credit to the verbal fights as well. The confrontation between Abbi and Sami, with Jen standing right there in disbelief , is priceless. …..behold Abbi, the fallen angel.

Top Picks –
“Punch Heard Around The World” i.e Carrie punching Sami at the church.

Sami vs Nicole – Sami kept hitting Nicole until she admitting to stealing Sydney

Sami vs Nicole – fuzz on the details but they were on the docks having a str8 up brawl!

That’s what I love about Sami – she rarely just “slaps” anyone – she punches!

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.
