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

Courtesy/NBC

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?

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.

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.

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?

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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

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,… Read more »

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.

Sam
Guest
Sam

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.

andrew hass

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… Read more »

SPOILER ALERT! 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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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?

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
