On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers finally learned who shot and killed Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) three times with a stunning confession from Gabi (Camila Banus)!  Saving the day for Will Horton (Guy Wilson) who admitted to the crime, Gabi cleared him with her split second admission of guilt in front of the Salem PD.

After the room cleared and with EJ DiMera (James Scott) as Gabi’s counsel, and even though he advises his client there are ways to get around this rap, Gabi says she did it!  Later in front of Hope( Kristian Alfonso), EJ and the DA, Gabi relives the night of the murderer but first admitted she hired Andrew to stalk her to help her win the love of Chad DiMera in 2012!

Nick knew about it and had been blackmailing her all along!  And that was just for starters in her explanation of the twisted relationship between Gabi and Nick.  In 2014,  when Gabi overheard Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith) talking about the gun they were hiding in the closet when Sonny thought of killing Nick, Gabi says  she was in the next room.  She decided she would take the gun and wanted to kill Nick for his next plot which was moving up the court date for custody of Arianna!  She did not want Arianna ripped from her family and had it with Nick!

Next came the chilling account where Gabi admits to shooting Nick three times in the park.  Then even after being shot, Nick following her!  After she admits the whole murder scene, she apologizes to Hope, who is not having it.   Hope tells Gabi sternly that Nick did not have to die.

So, what did you think about Gabi’s admission of guilt? Was it a satisfying conclusion to the story?  What did you think of Camila Banus’ performance?  There is one more secret yet to be revealed per the teasers before Camila and Gabi exit the series!  What do you think that will be? Let us know your thoughts below!

I thought she was amazing. Camila Banus has really come a long way in her acting abilities. (I remember her for her forgettable role on OLTL). I never thought I’d say this, but I’m going to miss Gabi!

Wishing you all the best Ms. Banus. Onward and upward! (But please don’t forget your soap roots 😉

Gabi is innocent…she will go off to prison or a mental hospital…i perfer the latter…i still believe Percy did it but killed Rick Fallon…Nicks twin…and Nick is still ALIVE! ALIVE! HE’s ALIVE! I remember when the show tried to trick us into believing Marlena was murdered by the Salem Strangular but it was really her twin sister Samantha Evans played by D.H.’s real life twin Andrea Hall Lovell and i believe, hopefully, they might do the same twin thing with Nick…even if it was never mentioned he had a twin!!!

I think Gabi will remain the shooter but that doesn’t mean Nick will stay dead.So instead of going to prison for muder Gabi will go for attempted murder.Plus i don’t see the show going the route of saying it wasn’t Nick that got shot but a twin or something instead.

is Ben Jordans brother…or husband? are they pretending to be siblings?

Nonna
Guest
Nonna

I believe Jordan and Ben are siblings. They are both running from someone and something. Perhaps Jordan is hiding from an abusive husband who was killed by Ben. Another scenario would be that they are both running from an abusive father. The crux of this never-ending mystery is, are they also running from the law? I also suspect that there may be a possible link between these two and Paige.

Nonna, i wrote that sometime ago that i think Jordan has run off from an abusive husband kind of like the movie ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’…and i still believe Eve is their mother if the are siblings…but no matter the story i find it way too draggy at the moment!!!

That would be tough to explain since he was on the phone with Marlena and identified himself as Nick! Blake Berris has left the show! Nick is dead accept it!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe he is, maybe he isnt…if he is ill be fine with it but i dont have to accept it…this is a soap and so if he was on the phone and identfied himself as Nick…i was on the phone and identified myself as me daddy to get rid of annoying telemarketer…it wasnt really me dad…maybe it wasnt really Nick but if he is surely dead this time so be it!!!

I think it is a great way to write the character off, and we are treated with some great performances from Camila I kind of wish she wasn’t leaving! Kudos to Days, I think it’s the most entertaining soap right now, I am a fan of Y&R but DAYS is just rockin’ it lately.

No idea what the last twist will be before Gabi leaves Salem…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I think the twist is we will see the real killer…a shocking twist is Will really did it but i doubt the WILL go there!!! My guess above remains the same!!!

I think it was an amazing and heart-wrenching performance. The actress played it beautifully with all the guilt, despair and defeat on display at the right times. I hope she submits it for emmy season next year.

So…a viable legacy Horton character was sacrificed so a Hernandez come lately would have a good exit story?? Really??

Yup. Oh gee…attempted rape. Big crime there. Sonny on GH murders people in CD blood and somehow he is a leading man.

Well his crime was being a homophobe which is MUCH more evil than killing people who “deserve to die.” Which appeared to be Gabi’s defense.

I liked Gabi’s confession and i think Camilla Banus did a good job with the scenes.Plus at least she’s leaving the show with a bang so to speak.As for the secret my guess is she tells someone what she,Sami and Kate did to Nick last November.

Camilla was AMAZING! I watched her scenes twice, and cried just as much the second time. We knew from spoilers it was her, but wow, she just knocked her scenes out.

I guess she was playing it as she was scared and frantic but the acting in those scenes with EJ seemed like the laziness of someone who was clearly ready to leave. She hasn’t seemed to care much at all in the last few months. So I’m glad she’s gone.

I think she is leaving with a bang, no pun intended! Gabi has never been my favorite character; but, I wish the actress the best of luck! I wish she would take nuWill with her, though. Ugh. I find him nauseating. I like Sonny solo, not with nuWill. I am really tuning in for when Eileen Davidson returns as Kristin Dimera! I absolutely adore Eileen!

I knew that Camila Banus was leaving months ago, most of us who regularly come here to On-Air-Soaps or read Soap Digest, etc., did. But, with that said, NEVER did it cross my mind for Gabi to kill Nick. I was in utter shock. Usually soaps are never so bold, even when an actor is leaving, to make them the killer, especially not someone as connected as Gabi (Rafe’s sister, Will’s baby mama, Arianna’s mother, etc.). I think it was a BRILLIANT move! It makes Gabi seem so much more stronger and knowledgeable than we were led to believe of… Read more »

I thought she played most of her scenes well – some of the moments though did lack emotion, a fact that several viewers here have noted as well.
Everyone on this show is so noble, Will ready to take the rap for Sonny, Will’s father ready to take the rap – everyone on the show is noble…except Nicole LoL. Nicole could lie her way out of anything but she’s not truly evil, just misguided. If Eric goes back to the Priesthood Nicole should then become a Nun and keep an eye on him.

Glad this episode, and particularly these scenes are getting recognized. Camilla has only become a better actress as time has passed, and she really gave it her all here. I thought the writing was compelling and her acting choices evenly matched it. She was wonderful. It was so obvious Gabi was the killer, but I wish they could have milked it a little more. The set up was fantastic, what with nick’s voicemail, the gun, the first (and only) real tip off that Gabi was frightened of nick just days before he was shot, and viable and legitimate suspects. But… Read more »

Fantastic acting, and IMO, the best acting I’ve seen on DAYS in a long time. Gabi’s confession was well written, too, but I bought 100% that she was disoriented and in shock from what she’d done, and from her confession, too, as she realized she may not see her daughter again for a long time. I have to say, DAYS isn’t as showy as some soaps which, say, fly to the Middle East to drop a guy out of a helicopter into the Persian Gulf, but it is very, very good soap, and so much better written than some of… Read more »

I just saw a little of her performance today crying with Ej, but I thought she did a good job. Haven’t seen much of this lately, but I was wondering if she was the real killer. Since she is leaving , she may be.

Very heartfelt emotional scenes. Camila did a wonderful job with the material. I hate to see her go.

I still think that MAYBE she THINKS she killed Nick but the shots she fired didn’t really get him, so maybe she will get off with “only” attempted murder – and the actual bullets that got Nick were from another source. Just when was it ever revealed that Gaby was such an expert on-target shot – although I guess she shot him at relatively close range. Just a theory…..if they want to bring her character back somewhere down the road this theory may be helpful…LoL…well ya never know.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

great idea…. “…she THINKS she killed Nick”

you know… I really have to prop Gabs

where would this trio be… with out ? Gabriella… WITH Will and Sonny and hers too… Arianna Grace

the indelible mark.. this trio plus Ari… have fleshed our real…. so LOVED this storyline

to further down the line and venture… that we’d LOVE a Gabs reunion… why not? I’d tear up… group hug… and radiate more LOVE for Arianna Grace

it’d be a beautiful thing

I just watched the shows and am thinking Camila will get an Emmy nomination next year. A great week of work. One thing that bothers me is that Abigail is the last of the generation of Melanie/Chad/Gabi/Chelsea. I wish Melanie would come back. Jordan looks too old and Paige looks too young to be Abigial’s core friends. I would also love to see Chad Dimera come back a little older, wiser and more mature.

Dmitri

I knew Gabi would kill Nick as soon as this shooting storyline was revealed, because she was leaving around the same time. BUT, I thought there would be 2 or 3 shooters-maybe Percy and/or the hitman also shot Nick. I will miss her. Camila has grown as an actress and even though I hated Gabi at times, I love her now and will miss her.

I am also glad that she confessed to hiring Andrew, as that story has been buried for far too long.

the very last scene… on Wednesday’ ep : was between Gabs and Abs….

I didn’t quite catch what was going on… but… it seemed to me like something is going on with these two… like they may have an understanding… I don’t know

seemed quite fishy to be

I could be wrong

I was never the biggest fan of Camila Banus, but as I sometimes like to say: She acted her FACE OFF in this week’s scenes. She was a revelation to me and delivered on the material better than I ever thought she was capable. It really made me sit up and take notice, and I’m glad to have the opportunity at this site to give her props because it might be my fave performance of the week out of all four remaining soaps. Banus has been SOLID this week.

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.

Photo: JPi

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.

Photo: JPI

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!

Photo: JPI

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.

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.
