After she wins him a full acquittal, David promises to help Liza should she ever need anything.  Greenlee stifles the pain she feels over Ryan having completely washed his hands of her for good after what she did to Kendall.  JR has his work cut out for him when he tries to do damage control with Annie after cruelly rejecting her earlier but ends up feeling confident she’ll keep her mouth shut about them having slept together.  JR, however, finds himself unable to look away as he accidentally comes across a naked Annie.  Brooke summons all her strength to walk away from Adam.  Erica’s relief is tinged with disappointment when Ryan tells her Kendall decided not to return to Pine Valley.  Erica reaches out to Jack when he admits he doesn’t even know who Greenlee is anymore.  Jack and Erica are interrupted by a call from a distraught Opal who tells Erica that Palmer has passed away. News of Palmer’s sudden passing spreads quickly through Pine Valley.  Palmer’s loved ones, including Daisy and Nina, gather at Tad’s to mourn their loss together.  Daisy admits to Opal that she was already in town planning on meeting Palmer when she learned of his death.  Opal surprises Daisy when she reveals she’s always known about Daisy and Palmer’s annual rendezvous every September but holds no grudge against her.  Daisy lets Opal know that Palmer was planning on ending their yearly trysts because Opal was the woman he wanted to be with.  Opal and Daisy share a warm embrace, both missing the man they loved.  Adam’s hesitant to put in an appearance at Tad’s given his history with Palmer but he’s welcomed with open arms when he arrives with Brooke.  Everyone reflects on a special moment they shared with Palmer as they light candles in his memory at the stroke of midnight.  Brooke admits to Adam that she loves him.

Although she loves Adam and wants to be with him, Brooke refuses to break up his marriage.  Adam reluctantly accepts Brooke’s decision and is heartbroken as he watches her walk away, knowing she is the woman he should be with.  Stuart’s spirit pays a visit to a forlorn Adam.  Brooke admits to JR that not only is she leaving the mansion, she’s also leaving Pine Valley.  Brooke asks Erica to look after Adam once she leaves.  Erica shows Brooke a rare display of friendship when Brooke becomes teary thinking about Adam.  Brooke accepts Erica’s offer to use her chartered jet.  JR infuriates Annie when he reveals he only slept with her to set her up for a fall.  JR and Annie’s anger turns to lust and they’re soon on top of each other, which Adam arrives to witness.  Angie pulls the rug out from under David by revealing his medical license has been permanently revoked and he can no longer practice medicine.  David has surprising plans for the future.  Amanda continues to receive email from her obsessed fan who later steals her wedding ring. JR tells Adam what he’s been up to with Annie.  Adam angrily states he believes there’s a part of JR that really does want Annie.  Annie’s attempt to do damage control with Adam falls on deaf ears.  Annie’s crushed when Adam realizes he probably never loved her.  Adam races off to the airport after reading Brooke’s letter but learns her plane already took off.  Annie threatens JR with a fireplace poker after trashing the parlor at the mansion.  Damon faces the judge in court.  Tad promises Damon his life is going to start taking a turn for the better.  Brot continues to spar with Natalia.  Natalia’s surprised that she’ll be posing nude, although discreetly so, when she arrives for her photo shoot in the park.  Brot walks away when he sees Natalia huddled with Ciro.

Adam demands that Erica order her pilot to turn Brooke’s plane around.  Brooke’s surprised to find herself back in Pine Valley with Adam waiting for her at the airport.  Adam tells Brooke his marriage is over and convinces her they deserve to be together, saying he’ll never stop loving her.  Brooke and Adam head off together for parts unknown.  JR’s angry with himself for still having feelings for Annie.  JR wants Annie out of the mansion immediately but Marissa intervenes on her behalf, still unaware that Annie and JR slept together.  Annie threatens to tell Marissa everything unless JR lets her keep living at the mansion.  David and Greenlee see themselves as becoming a force to be reckoned with and make love for the first time.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

After the big win, Shumbert told Entertainment Tonight, “Hats off to the work that we put in. I think me and Dani set our mind to that when we got that 40, that we don’t want to just to drop off now and just steam out of the competition. I think we just put in a lot of hours and when it was time to perform, it got easy.”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Jack Admits to Li He’s Finn’s Biological Father in Standout Moments From Ted King

On Tuesday and Wednesday’s episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, Jack (Ted King) finally admitted to Li (Naomi Matsuda) that he is Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) biological father.  Li is devastated because not only did he lie for years and years and never told her or their  son, but he had been with Sheila (Kimberlin Brown).

In a solid performance by Ted King, Jack tries to explain away his bad mistake all those years ago, as Li finally learns about his tryst with Sheila that produced Finn.

He goes on to say how he loved and cared for Finn his entire life and has been a good father to him.  Li acknowledges that, but Jack still lied to both of them.

Then let us know, what you think will Finn will do once he learns Jack lied all of these years, and if you think Li will leave Jack, or will Jack be able to repair his marriage? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
