Days Of Our Lives

DAYS: Nick Is Shot Through The Heart! But Who's To Blame?


On Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, it was once again Blake Berris (Nick) who stole the show delivering the complex emotions of an over-the-edge and distraught Nick!

After threatening every0ne in town, and with a hit man hired by EJ (James Scott) and a knowing Sami (Alison Sweeney) looming, things were certainly coming to end for the vindictive Mr. Fallon!

After a tour de force performance by Berris in scenes with DAYS icon Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Nick decides to reach out to none other than Marlena for some help!  Or, was Nick making it seem like he wanted help so it’s on a recorded voice message?  No matter what ..  it’s too late!  Shots are fired to the back and to the heart of Nick and he falls to the ground.

Meanwhile, Sami, EJ, Kate, Lucas, Ben, Rafe, Gabi, Will, Sonny, have someone all ended up at Horton Town Square at exactly the same time with looks of guilt written across all of their faces!  Next, Nick stumbles in into the Horton Town Square a bloody mess  (Nice touch DAYS costume department to have Blake  wear a white T-shirt for his death scenes!) and on his last dying breath he  seemingly is about to point to his shooter!  Or, is Nick setting someone up as he always does one last time?

Watch a promo for next week’s Days of our Lives from NBC after the jump! Then, let us know what did you think of Blake’s final performance?   And after watching the set-up to the murder mystery that will play out, who do you think is the leading suspect who pulled the trigger?  Or, do you think since there were multiple shots fired that two people were responsible?

Months ago i said Nick will be shot and his killer: PERCY!!!

Its not Percy because EJ told him to leave town

That doesnt mean a thing in the world of soaps…Percy can return or maybe he never left at all!!!

I haven’t seen all of Friday’s episode yet, but I would bet it is Gabi. She is leaving soon. If it’s not Gabi, then it must be E.J. or Sami. They all are leaving the soap opera. I love it when there is a murder-mystery. If it’s just one of E.J.’s henchmen, that would be disappointing.

that hit man

Good luck to Blake Berris in his future career. He certainly plays an excellent slimy bastard. I just started watching this show. It will be interesting to see the multiple suspect murder case play out. Hopefully, I’ll learn more about the characters. I don’t think the professional hit man got him. There were too many people wandering through the park. To me, the obvious suspect is Gabi. I hope she didn’t use the gun Sonny put on the top shelf of the closet. If it wasn’t her, I’d take a look at the guy Percy.

that promo makes me sad : another good actor

Mr. Blake Berris

Patrick, I wish the soaps would stop killing characters so they would not have to bring them back from the dead. That said, I’m aching for Blake/Nick to come back! Maybe for DAYS 50th!!!!!

Nick could come back as a ghost and haunt his haters…or return as his twin brother no one knew he had?

I know about Jessica…she couldve had twins Nick and Rick Fallon…

Me too Patrick. I’m sure Blake had something to do with this exit, but I wish it weren’t so. I loved Kristen’s return last time to the fullest, but Blake is an absolute revelation who made every scene he was in scenes you could not look away from. His loss was as unexpected to me as James and Ali, but with them I know in Advance enough to savour their scenes. This was too soon with no warning! I wish Blake all the best and thank him so much for returning and offering us his masterful work. I definitely enjoyed it while it lasted!

2 points :

I wish they would stop killing characters off… as well.. especially, knowing… how charismatic and full of life… a character reels… Nick sparks, blows… and bombs

after seeing, the previews… knowing… as you both… EJ and Sami exits : Nick was another BLOW… period

it’s unnerving… that DAYS is in the mix…. and it should be in the upper echelon… the train that could… and it’s OURS… NBC… must see… i couldn’t be happier.. nevertheless

if DAYS triggers… 2nd year in a row… that’s all I need

I love Blake Berris
I love James Scott
I love Alison Sweeney

here comes Eileen Davidson
here comes Kassie DePaiva

we still have ..enjoy… and LOVE


et el


so… thats a full house… and it’s DOOOL – Sony – NBC

I loved Nick

even before… his prison life… I can’t fathom that

the actor… Blake Berris… hot to trot

enigmatic… knows his craft… camera captures… didn’t you love his valentine scene when Gabs came home… what goes on in his mind.. triggered beyond

sexual sensual cared about loved his being

Blake is a great actor and i almost hate myself for predicting this killing months ago(i still say Percy)…now i hope a new prediction comes true: Blake returns later as his own twin brother no one knew he had?

Blake could return…as the twin no one knew he had?

jimh, I know you know Nick’s mom (Jessica) had multiple personality disorder. Plus Nick was born off camera. It would be easy for the writers to create a twin storyline. They can even write that Nick did in fact go to New York and the twin assaulted Gabi and was dropped in the river and finally shot to death.

latest issue of SOD cover :

Peter Reckell : on DAYS : “I would come back”

MTS’ Y&R : Nikki dumps Victor – LOL for how long? I wish she could be fun… even if it means imbibing and living it up!

This is the best time for Peter Reckell to help get through the exits:

James Scott
Alison Sweeney
Blake Berris

I have to wonder about Nick…. no MF headline stating he’s leaving the show? has any one heard… or is it that obvious

Maybe Rick Fallon(Blake Beris) will shock all when he shows up at the courthouse during Nicks(his twin) murder trial…shocker!!!

I think because Nick was on the phone leaving a message for Marlena he might have said something knowing could be admitted into court as his dying declaration.However the person he claims shot him may not have been the shooter.I’m thinking Nick claimed Will shot him because Will threatened to kill him and it’ll be Nick’s last attempt to keep Will from been a father to Arianna Grace.Also maybe it’ll turn out there was more than one shooter.As for who the real shooter is it could be EJ’s hitman but the evidence could point to Will.Then Sami and EJ will be screwed.

It’s like “Clue” – Gabi with the gun Sonny left in the Eavesdropping Closet, though secretly I’m hoping it was Ciara.

They should search her book bag!

What about Caroline or even little Johnny…Caroline couldve mistaken Nick for a mugger and little Johnny couldve found out Nick was being a meanie to his parents and is upset they all are leaving town…or what if Chaz Bono got upset because Nick said something bad about Sonny and Chaz thought he meant Sonny Bono and not Kiriakas?…lol


all i can say is that his last scenes with the multiple range of emotions was just extraordinary – the character of nick fallon was horrible but blake’s acting was superb …..

Amazing performance by Blake Berris, Emmy worthy, to be sure. And I disliked Nick intensely, which was the purpose of what Nick was doing.

While the hitman might have got off one shot, I have a feeling he did not, and I think there are 2 shooters, maybe even 3. Days loves to recycle, and I remember when all those people were in church with a gun, wanting to shoot EJ, when Sami was being forced to marry him. There were a few stray shots, but one definitely got him in the back, and he still carries that one.
So, With so much greenery to hide behind, there could have a few out there. Gabi, and yes, there was a reason Percy became unhappy with what Nick was doing. Kate. Lucas???
Even Julie herself.

Blake done a very good job in acting this out made it so real . I had to feel sorry for him. I always felt he was a good actor. I hate to see him go. He brought something to days to look forward in what he would do next. I think it going to look like Gabi maybe it Lucas.

Blake gave an excellent performance !
My money is on Gabby for the shooting. I think that Ej and Sami are going to assume it was their ” gun for hire ” that got the job done, but it will later be revealed that he was beat to the punch, leaving Ej and Sami to wonder who actually fired the shot. I believe that Gabby is going to find the gun that Sonny got from Victors house in her apartment and is going to finally snap and shoot Nick.

I am also thinking it’ll be Gabi.Maybe she finds Sonny’s gun and in her mind she realizes she’s the one who let Nick into their lives and now she’s got to be the one to get rid of him.However when Will and Sonny find out the gun is missing they might assume the other shot Nick and each tries to take the blame.Plus maybe EJ’s hitman shot Nick in the back but someone else shot him in the chest.So Nick might have assumed whoever he saw when he turned around fired all the bullets.Plus maybe Nick getting killed is less a mystery because of Gabi leaving in a few weeks and her been the killer as her exit story and more about all the secrets he knew about certain characters coming out.


Since I saw Nick’s scar, I had a nagging suspicion he’s the new Todd. Kudos to the writers making Nick renewable in the 61st second. It was an excellent show and Nick may be “dead”for a while anyway. But with Kassie coming on and half the cast leaving???

I started watching Days when One Life went off, and it’s been really good… but This episode is what I’be been waiting for. General H these days is like R C and F V are still in panic mode or just trauamatized? …I cried at Duke’s funeral way back when and felt nothing at AJ’s ???!

Maybe I just like “the adopted child” but Nick ain’t goin nowhere. Blake Berris is awesome and the writers know it!!!

I am a died in the wool OLTL fan having watched from day one until the last online episode last year. I miss my beloved show so very much. Started watching Days about a month ago after 2 years of enduring Y&R. I must say Days is much better than Y&R and I can see myself getting into it. I have definitely noticed all the familiar faces from GH and AMC. Plus, the show’s production is more in line with what I’m used to. Am looking forward to the arrival of Kassie DePaiva.

Echoing others- Blake is a terrific actor! He plays creepy scarily well! 🙂

To Llanviewer ~ yeah, I’m missing my abc soap ALL MY CHILDREN very much (and the on-line version was awful) and now, for the past four months or so, I’ve become a fan of Days of Our Lives for the same reasons you mentioned – small town, everyone knows everybody’s business, the characters are inter-connected (a factor that was badly missing on the On line versions of both One Life and AMC, shows were horribly disconnected albeit well-acted) – and the writing on Days of Our Lives is pretty interesting. So I think the fans that have switched over to Days of Our Lives because of ABC’s historical Bad decision is ABC’s lost and NBC’s gain.
I need my “soap fix” somewhere and Days of Our Lives now provides it.

well I seriously doubt if you’re shot in the “heart” you would be able to get up and walk from the park to the square—but it made for good melodrama, and how fortunate that all the major suspects just happened to be all standing there for him to point at.

Mine first thought was Nick planned to get shot to pin it on Will, but if he is dead then it unlikely he was behind his own murder. But if survives that would be my guess. My second thought if he is really dead, would be as others have stated Gabi– but it would be hoot if they went with the classic-the butler did it– and had Henderson be the shooter. Nobody would see that coming that’s for sure.

Berris has been giving excellent performances all the way through this storyline. I wouldn’t be surprised if he got an emmy nod for this.

My money’s on Gabi. They didn’t keep putting the camera on Sonny’s bag in the closet for nothing.

I think it will turn out to be Jordon’s cat who pulled the trigger. He got out and was in the park and found the gun.
I have no idea who the killer will be.

Maybe it wasn’t Nick who got shot at all – maybe it was Nick’s evil twin, Rick.
Maybe it was Nick who got shot but he was wearing a bullet proof vest. How the heck did he go from the Park to the Square if he was shot three times, and we clearly saw him get hit three times (I assume with a gun with a silencer on it). Obviously, I don’t know – maybe it was another dream sequence – (would the writers DARE pull
THAT one again?) – why would EVERYONE be assembled oddly at the same location –

Maybe Nick wasn’t shot at all. Maybe he was riddled by the screams from Julie. They were enough to wake the dead, so why not loud enough to kill someone?

Even though I am sad to see blake berris leaving days, I am happy Ejami won’t be messed with by Nick any longer!

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Return to Days of our Lives to Celebrate Abe and Paulina’s Juneteenth Wedding Anniversary and a ‘Going Away’ Party

There are several reasons that Days of our Lives favorites Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani) are making a return on the Wednesday, June 19th episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

First, Lani and Eli come back to Salem to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Abe (James Reynolds) and Paulina (Jackee Harry), which happened on Juneteenth Day which is on June 19th.

Juneteenth, which is a Federal holiday, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War, has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, the return also serves as a “apparent” send-off for Johnny (Carson Boatman) and Chanel (Raven Bowens), who are set to depart Salem, since Johnny landed his dream job in California.

Look like Elani is also attending their going away party, but are the departing couple (with Chanel being pregnant) really going to leave Salem? Stay tuned.

Stowers made her first Days of our Lives appearance back in September of 2015. Lani is the adoptive daughter of Abe and the biological daughter of Paulina. As for Archey, he arrived on the scene in 2017 as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson. Sal and Lamon were last seen on-screen in March of this year.
