Carly and Jack go on a walk. In the woods they stumble across intimate Parker and Faith. Carly and Jack stand back while Parker stops his and Faith’s hook up before things escalate. Parker and Faith candidly share how upset they are about their parent’s rocky love lives. Carly and Jack are affected, make some noise and Parker and Faith rush to cover themselves. Carly takes Faith back to the farm, where Faith doesn’t respond very positively to Carly’s words of hope regarding love. Carly returns to Milltown where Jack and Parker have cleaned up the bridal shower. Carly’s shaken by Faith’s glum attitude toward love, but Jack reassures her that they are headed down the right path and that they are meant to be together. Chris tries to reassure Katie that he will be an unchanging presence in her life. She denies, but he stands firm and asks her to meet him halfway. Chris goes to Bob and Kim and affirms his desire to set roots in Oakdale by being considered to take over as Chief of Staff of Memorial when Bob steps down. Bob will have to submit Chris’s name to the board as well as Reid’s. Chris tells Tom that he’s interested in Katie and replacing Bob as Chief of Memorial. Tom’s realistic but positive. Katie meanwhile, breaks down in Margo’s arms about her inability to get over Brad. When Tom tells Margo that Chris has his sights set on Katie, she’s apprehensive and worries that Katie and he do not a match in heaven make. But, later, Chris helps Katie make inroads with Henry.  Katie helps Henry appeal to Barbara on WOAK. He frantically searches around Old Town and Barbara’s bedroom when a few calls come in stating people saw someone like Barbara in town. Henry’s convinced, by the presence of Barbara’s perfume/lipstick, that she’s around – just hiding from Henry to torment him. Katie’s alarmed by Henry’s intense behavior.  Katie encourages Henry to admit that Barbara has turned her back on him. Luke tries to teach Reid people skills but fails.

Barbara’s credit card is used at a lingerie store, so Paul and Henry investigate. The store owner doesn’t recognize the picture of Barbara they show her. Later, the store owner calls Emily at home to say that she found an expensive bracelet at her store – that could’ve been Barbara’s. Emily picks up the bracelet, but (furious with the way Barbara’s treated her over the years) decides to get rid of the potential evidence. Paul catches her throwing away the bracelet.  Gwen and Will speculate whether or not Emily and Paul are capable of being behind Barbara’s disappearance.    Will arrives at Fairwinds in time to hear that Emily tried to destroy potential evidence – Barbara’s bracelet. Will, Paul and Emily all accuse each other of their past crimes. Will admits to himself that he can’t be one to judge, when Gwen arrives off of just having seen Iris. Much to Will’s displeasure, Gwen has agreed to let Iris help in the search for Barbara.

Barbara’s visited by hallucinations of James, Henry, Paul and Will, none of whom can help her. Barbara vows to save herself. Barbara’s shocked to see someone who’s not a hallucination at the door – Iris.  Iris lets Barbara write a note to let everyone know that she’s alive and okay.  Iris leaves Barbara there, then goes to Old Town to put up missing posters etc. and sees Will and Gwen there.  Iris lauds the power of positive thinking and they go to Al’s.  Paul and everyone at Fairwinds reads it, and figures it’s the real deal.  Meanwhile, Gwen, Will and Hallie had been looking through Emily’s room for proof that she’s responsible for Barbara having gone missing.  Emily finds them there and she and Paul are upset by the others’ suspicion. Lucy runs into Janet in the hospital. She goes to see Dusty and informs him that she saw Janet with another man.  Lucy tries to apologize to Dusty later, and they wind up in an electric embrace. At the EOD, they are on their way to making love.  Craig helps cheer Lily up while she avoids Holden and Molly’s rehearsal dinner. When news arrives that another catastrophe has struck the perfume factory Lily impulsively decides to go to France. Worried Francoise calls Lucinda, but Lucinda thinks it’s time the whole lie blew up. Lily arrives in France only to discover there is no perfume factory. Crestfallen, she turns around to find Craig has followed her there. Holden and Molly are thrilled to welcome Abigail back to Oakdale for their wedding. Lucinda calls Holden during the rehearsal dinner to inform him that Lily may be walking into a trap in France. The women all retire to Milltown after the dinner, but Holden’s determined to rescue Lily overnight and be back in time for the wedding. Jack confides this information to Carly, who’s horrified he let Holden fly away.

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.

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.

Jack says he did all of this because he loved Li and did not want to hurt her, or their marriage.  He hopes Li can find a way to forgive him.  She backs away from him, and wonders, if Finn will ever forgive him for his deception, since Finn grew up his entire life not knowing who is bio-dad was?

Watch two pivotal scenes below featuring Ted King and Naomi Matsuda below.

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.
