On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) was finally able to recall through hypnosis, and with the help of her grandmother, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall), the details of what went happened that fateful night, over a year ago, in which she was raped.

For months, Days has been telling the tell of Allie’s accusations that she was raped by Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams), when it actually was revealed to be his brother, Charlie (Mike Manning). Through all the twists and turns, the audience was finally given the flashback of how Allie buried the truth in the recesses of her mind.

In story, while living in England, Allie goes out dancing one night and gets wasted.  She meets Tripp, who ultimately takes her home and helps her get situated before he leaves, although she makes some drunken advances to him.  Tripp, being the gentlemen, helps her get comfortable to fall asleep for the night in her bed and then leaves.  However,  Charlie – glasses and all – is already in her apartment hiding in the dark.   Angry that she seemingly chose Tripp over him while in the club, and knowing that was his brother, he gets violent with Allie and rapes her – although we do not see the act played out much on-screen.

The rape, and most of the events surrounding it, are told in heartbreaking detail by Allie to Marlena and the young woman has finally allowed herself to remember what really tranpired and her real attacker.

After the episode aired, Arnold took to Twitter to publicly thank the viewers and those who sent her messages on her portrayal stating: “Thank you for all the love on today’s episode, I know it’s been a hard storyline to watch and it was difficult to perform over the past few months, so I really appreciate the support. To anyone who has ever been in a situation like Allies, know you are loved and supported.”

I hope Tripp can forgive Allie and they end up together!

I thought they did a good job in creating the fake “flashbacks” and showing how it all played out. Idiot Charlie, so jealous of his brother that he raped a girl to get back at him?? Yeah, that’s the Ava Vitali mentality on steroids, right there. Unfortunately, he’s probably going to get away with it, and here’s why: ReRon can’t go a full year without writing an idiotic “identity disorder” storyline. And the fact that we see Charlie putting on his glasses & taking them off again at the most random times – even in the middle of the rape… Read more »

ReRon will either come up with “identity disorder” or a brain tumour to explain Charlie. Or maybe ReRon with have it turn out that it was Charlie’s identical twin who raped Allie. You know, Ava doesn’t remember give birth to twin boys

Say it aint so. Charlie Dale is such an interesting psycho. He can’t die. His dynamics with Ava and Tripp were mesmerizing. Plus he had real chemistry with Claire. They could have made him the new Roger Thorpe, terrorizing the entire town for years – always getting away with everything. I also wanted to meet Charlie’s dad. Oh well back to dreary Chloe and Phillip.

Sorry,I don’t agree with Charlie being another Roger Thorpe, he is not smart enough. You have already met his father, but I won’t give it away. I do agree with you about the very boring Philip and Chloe, especially with him being so unattractive. I was really hoping that Ava’s mob would give him some cement shoes.

I disagree Charlie would be a perfect Roger Thorpe. Roger terrorized Holly, Ed and his own family for years. His only good quality was that he in his own way loved his child. Sound familiar. You are gonna find Charlie was working for the mob and keeping track of what was going on at Titan for his father. I hope he uses his inside information for blackmail. I can see him entering the witness protection program. He has loads of potential.

I stopped watching DAYS a year ago. Got so ridiculous w/story line sand phonetic b.s. after being a fan for years I said enough time wasting in my life. Weddings that never go off due to secrets being divulged at the I do ceremony, unknown kids showing up SURPRISE! And lastly NO ONE ever really DIES ,they always come back. Enough

I found it hard to invest in the rape story because of many things but there literally was no drama, as Charlie (with no ties to Salem) showed up randomly within the first week of the accusation. No offense to those actors the in rape story, but I have no interest in two Retcon children of psycho Ava, whose whole history has been rewritten to support her redemption. This was another poorly written plot that will drag out for way too long.

But they could have always given Charlie a dad. A scary grandpa to Henry. Future boyfriend of bad boy loving grandma Sammie. I hope to see the fireworks when Charlie claims the rape was consensual and sues Allie for custody.

Lis, here I am again. What you say could come true. I’ve seen shows where convicted killers and rapists have sued their victims for visitation rights.

Lindsay has done a great job and I like her portrayal of Allie. I was skeptical when I heard that they were aging Allie and having her be pregnant, but I have enjoyed the story.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
