Annie warns JR that she isn’t going anywhere.  JR’s on the verge of confessing everything to Marissa in order to beat Annie to the punch but he’s stopped by Colby’s arrival.  Annie thinks she’s in the clear when she learns from Marissa that Adam left town with Brooke indefinitely.  Colby’s upset with JR for the trouble he’s caused but realizes he never set out to intentionally hurt their family.  David tells Greenlee that he loves her and covers his disappointment when she can’t say the same.  Liza finds David drinking alone in the park and quickly figures out what’s gotten him so upset.  David curses Ryan and later spies on him at the casino.  Amanda’s unnerved when she receives another message from her obsessed fan.  Ryan offers Madison some advice as she prepares for her first shift as a cocktail waitress at the casino.  Greenlee lays down that law to Madison, telling her she can’t work at the casino and still keep her job at Fusion.

Marissa’s speechless to learn Adam is divorcing Annie on grounds of infidelity when Liza arrives at the mansion to serve Annie with divorce papers.  Scott, however, jumps in to prevent Marissa from learning the truth by claiming Adam thought he was having an affair with Annie.  JR and Scott realize they’re going to be stuck with Annie for a while.  Amanda’s overjoyed when Jake gives her a new wedding ring to replace the one she lost but is later freaked out when the original is delivered to Fusion with a creepy note from Amanda Fan.  Colby and Damon continue to connect.  Liza’s not pleased when she witnesses Damon kissing Colby.  Jesse walks into the station to find Brot in a heated confrontation with a fellow cop who plastered Natalia’s nude pictures from her Fusion photo shoot all around the office.  Jesse’s furious with Natalia for posing “au natural” but Angie warns him he’d better ease up on his daughter.  Brot punches the cop who posted Natalia’s photos all over the station. Tad receives a text message presumably from Hillary asking to meet with him but when he arrives at her hotel room, he finds Paul Miller, Damon’s father, instead.  Tad tries to get through to Paul, who doesn’t take kindly to his advice.  After Tad takes him home to see Damon, Paul makes a disparaging remark when he finds Damon making out with Colby.  Annie warns JR that she’s not going anywhere and even implies she might try to go after securing the mansion for herself in the divorce.    Marissa starts to suspect she’s not getting the full story about Adam and Annie’s breakup.  JR worries that Marissa will end up being hurt by all the dysfunction in his family but she assures him their love is strong enough to get them through anything.  Annie spies on JR and Marissa making love.  Jake and Amanda tell Jesse about Amanda’s obsessed stalker and the three of them plan a sting operation to lure the person out at fan club meeting at Fusion.  Angie fears that David and Liza are up to something.  Jesse suspends Brot after he punches out a fellow officer.  Brot shuts down when Natalia tries to reach out to him.

Tad’s heartsick over Paul’s treatment of Damon.  Tad discovers that Colby and Damon have taken off when he goes back inside the house after finishing things with Paul.  Liza tears into Damon when she finds him and Colby together in the park and sees a couple of cans of beer Colby had taken from Tad’s that they didn’t even drink.  Damon overhears Liza telling Colby that Tad is his father.  Jack plays it cool when Erica insists they can’t pursue an intimate relationship.  David realizes that Madison lied to Greenlee about quitting her job at the casino and plans on using it to his advantage.  Ryan secretly comes to Madison’s rescue when he discovers she’s on the verge of being evicted for not paying her rent.  Amanda’s stalker is keeping a close eye on her. Amanda believes her stalker no longer poses a threat but Jake insists on having Natalia guard her.  Natalia is later seen unconscious in the closet as the stalker approaches Amanda.  Tad tells JR the truth about Damon.  JR admits he’s keeping a secret from Marissa that’s related to why Adam really left Annie.  Tad cautions JR that secrets have a way of coming out.  Damon angrily confronts Liza, who insists she’s telling the truth about Tad being his father.  Tad and Damon come face to face.  David digs for dirt on Madison and gets quite an earful while eavesdropping on her and Randi.

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.

With the win, Shumbert becomes not only the first basketball star to make it to the finals, but the first-ever to win the coveted Mirror Ball,

The judges and the at-home audience were blown away by his final dance of the competition – an epic freestyle to Missy Elliot’s “Lose Control”  and “Bounce” by DJ Clent.  Iman is married to singer and dancer, Teyana Taylor.

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.”

Check out Iman and Dani’s final routine below.

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.
