DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abigail Reveals Gwen’s Deception at her Wedding to Xander, But Gwen Drops A Bombshell

Look like Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) finally got what’s coming to her, or at least for now.  On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives it was wedding couple number two who took front and center stage.

Now, Xander (Paul Telfer) and Gwen were ready to start their nuptials, following the disaster of the first couple’s attempt at tying the knot (Leo and Craig) and that coming apart at the seams.

However, this wedding was not meant to be either, thanks to Abigail (Marci Miller) having the ammo (thank to a plea deal for Ava Vitali) to bring Gwen’s heinous plot out in the open, publicly.  That included: Gwen’s plans to nab Xander for herself and keep his true love, Sarah, away from him by any means possible as all was revealed to the groom and Gwen’s father, Jack (Matthew Ashford).  From kidnapping, drugging Sarah, wearing masks, being an accomplice to Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) schemes etc, etc, Abigail had the quite the dirt on her half-sister.

In the end, Xander walks out on Gwen, Jack practically disowns her, Abigail and Jennifer stand by and take Gwen’s insults knowing they have finally one-upped her, and Gwen is in a puddle of tears in her wedding dress.

Just then, Gwen gets one more visitor, Rafe (Galen Gering)! He comes to cuff-her and bring her down to the police station for her crimes.  Before she leaves, she angrily gets close to Abigail and whispers in her ear that she purposely killed her grandmother! That means that Gwen killed Laura Horton in cold blood.  What will Abigail do with his information?

Emily O’ Brien has been consistently knocking it out of the park playing all the levels of Gwen, while Marci Miller was fierce with her controlled and contained payback after all Gwen has put Abigail through. Perhaps, there is yet another knock-down drag-out fight to go down between the two in the near future?  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of Abigail’s comeuppance of Gwen for her crimes? Are you happy Xander walked out on her? What do you think will happen next involving the information on Gwen murdering Laura Horton? Comment below.

I knew that Gwen killed Laura all along. Guess I should expect her arrival in Hell by the end of the month??

Yes, Satan—please let us know as soon as she walks through the flames LOL
I still feel sorry for Gwen—such a screwed-up mind. Shall we blame it on her childhood? Her mother? Not having a role model??
Now, there’s Leo. He’s just a buffoon who cracks me up. —I’m sort of indifferent towards him because he is of no consequence, regardless his threat to Chad and Sonny—-or is he?? “Apres moi , le deluge”– after me, the storm.

Leo’s OK for comic relief in limited doses. Can’t imagine how he would ever translate to a long term serious character though. I think they missed an opportunity for a serious story about Craig coming out later in life, by tying him to Leo and the double-wedding disaster that inevitably followed for both Leo and his “bestie” Gwen.

Great episodes and I always knew she killed Laura intentionally.

GUT ME !!! cut me to the core.. ^^^ “… she angrily gets close to Abigail and whispers in her ear that she purposely killed her grandmother! ”

OMG… exhale exclamation… you have it

How my beloved laura Horton was murdered !!! Gwen has crashed… oh she thought she could RUN w/Xander bootylicious she wanted the whole PIECE of cake and eat it too

Xander – WOW leading man believe… am not in to Sarah acting out tragic or otherwise.. just dumbed down for naught? Am still loving my Linsey

sensations any one

Gwen and Abigail are the two sisters from hell. They are like Warner Brothers stars Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in their prime or real life sisters Olivia De Havilland and Joan Fontaine who truly detested each other. Hope the rumors that Marci Miller is leaving is not true because the Gwen – Abigail feud with poor Jack caught in the middle is legendary and could power this soap for decades.

I loved these scenes but would have enjoyed seeing Abby a bit more emotional. I’ve hated Gwen from day one, so I hope she gets everything she deserves. Jack is the one I feel sorry for. He tried so hard to love and forgive Gwen mostly from all the guilt she piled on him. As for what she said to Abigail on leaving. It might or might not be true. Didnt we see those scenes? She may just be taunting Abigail as a final jab. Nothing can be proven by a whisper in someone’s ear as an admission of guilt. After all the other crap we’ve seen lately, we finally got a worthwhile show.

I think Gwen got what was coming to her she caused the whole problem

Poor Xander. Now go join sweet Maggie at Sarah’s side.

Xander and Maggie , have “wonderful” touching moments… Xander actually “adores” maggie… whilst she is in a rapturous state of being…. perhaps, no? who wouldn’t not see themselves luring Xander… “come hither” ANYWAY

i’m all for Gwen taking the fall…. sacrificial… if this lets Ava off the hook, thereby Ava pleads a deal, and Gwentakes the blame, as this appears to be the case.

I am anxiously waiting a Sarah / Xander reunion…. AND waiting still, for a Brady/Kristen reunion…. Chloe belongs with Rex !!!! oh he’s another one. so many keepers on this show

no reason to focus on the devil made me do it… JEEPERS just thinking about @DAYS beyond Salem… When Peter Reckel and Kristian Alfonso REUNITE !!!!!! JEEPERS

Giddy

IMO Gwen did not kill Laura on purpose. She only said that to ruffle Abigail’s feathers. I watched it and all Gwen did was grab Laura’s arm and Laura pulled away and fell.It was an accident.

Didn’t Abigail look pretty in her LBD? I hate seeing her in her many “granny” dresses.

Loved these episodes. I actually love Gwen and Xander together. I couldn’t stand Xander with Sarah, I had to FF through them every time they were together. I think they were the worst couple in Days history. I think Gwen and Abigail have great chemistry together as feuding sisters. I would love to see more of them going at it. I hope the powers that be end up having Gwen and Xander get back together. I can’t get enough of them.

Although I hate Gwen I can’t stand Sarah either. Xander and her romance could have really been great if they hadn’t had Linsey Godfrey/Sarah acting like a loony twit most of the time. I was glad to see the last of her. She played a very good part on B&B but her goofiness in this part was just too much.

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric Says Goodbye to Baby Jude

The Monday, May 27th of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, picked right back up for the emotional payoff of Nicole (Arianne Zucker) finally getting her biological son, Jude, back in her arms and learning it from Eric (Greg Vaughan).

As the episode began, Eric (with Jude in tow) is at the front door of the DiMera mansion. Eric recounts Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) confession. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) says she knew from the first time she held Jude that this was her child. She says a parent knows deep in their soul. Eric looks at her with tears in his eyes, as he thinks Jude is now EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) biological son. That’s a lie into itself and EJ is covering the truth of that along with Sloan.

Eric goes on to explain that Sloan even rigged the DNA results, telling the couple that they can check for themselves with a new DNA test, but this is their baby. Once inside the living room, Eric apologizes to Nicole for what Sloan put her though. Nicole says EJ was a victim too.  She turns to EJ and insists that Sloan be arrested. He tells her there is plenty of time for that. She reiterates, “That bitch stole my baby!” But, EJ is not about to do anything about it.

Eric vows he will make Sloan pay for all of her lies and deceit. Nicole asks Eric if he would like to hold Jude one more time before he leaves. Eric tells Jude he will love him more than he will ever know.

As tears stream down his face, he returns Jude to Nicole. She tells he can come over anytime to see the baby. Eric thinks it’s best for Jude to bond with his new family. Holly (Ashley Puzemis) comes in on all this and is filled-in on Jude’s “parentage.” Outside, Eric continues to falls apart.

However, after getting a call from Rafe (Galen Gering), they meet outside Eric’s apartment door. When they enter, the place is a torn up and there is no sign of Sloan. All that they find is a necklace, Eric gave her for Mother’s Day.Eric realized she took off, knowing she could be caught for her crimes. Meanwhile, back the DiMeras, an overcome Nicole is in tears that she actually has her baby back.

Now, what? Will EJ try to bond with Jude or not bond with Jude since he is knows Eric is the biological father? Will Sloan eventually get arrested? What did you think of the performance of Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker? Let us know via the comment section below. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s conversation with the Ari and Greg  from five months back where they talk about the baby switch storyline and more.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: Nicole Gets Her Baby Back; Then Hauls Off and Decks Sloan

This week on Days of our Lives starts, what looks to be the next and final leg of the baby Jude, baby switch saga, and all of its deceptions. As viewers saw on last Friday’s episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) told Eric (Greg Vaughan) that Jude is actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) baby. Of course, that’s a half-truth as the bio-dad is Eric.

Trapped and in cahoots now with EJ, Sloan had to confess what she did to Eric. At the cliffhanger, Eric show up at EJ’s door with Jude in tow. In tears, he tells Nicole this is her baby, and hands it to her. What will go down when the show picks back up on Memorial Day with an all-new episode?

Eric doesn’t know he is the father, but EJ does. EJ also saw Nicole kiss Eric. He is going to do everything he can to keep the truth from coming out in an effort to keep his marriage in tact.

However, how long can EJ and Sloan keep this major secret? Leo (Greg Rikaart) and Dimitri (Peter Porte) are very much alive. Will one of them blow the final whistle on them? Right, Lady Whistleblower? Will Nicole and Eric learning they are the true parents of Jude, be the impetus for Nicole leaving town perhaps with Eric, since we know Arianne Zucker’s last episode of DAYS is set to air July 29th? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile in the latest promo for this week’s DAYS, Nicole and EJ introduce “their” baby to Holly (Ashley Puzemis), while Rafe (Galen Gering) confronts Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) who is playing dumb in all of this. Rafe asks her, “Are you saying you know nothing about the baby switch?” Melinda pretends she is completely shocked, saying, “Did you say baby switch?”

In the moment you’ve been waiting for, harkening back to when Nicole stole Sami’s (Alison Sweeneybaby for months, and the two finally had a showdown which saw Sami delivering bitch-slaps to Nicole, Sloan comes to the DiMera mansion to see Nicole.  Then, Nicole screams that she lost she lost six months with her son because of all of her lies. Next, Nicole hauls off and punches Sloan.  Elsewhere, Eric grabs Leo by his shirt collar, which will be interesting to see how much Leo fesses up on what he knows about the baby switch.

Watch the DAYS preview below.

Now let us know, are you happy to see Nicole get her baby back? Are you frustrated that the story is still going on and now its Eric who is the one in the dark, along with Nicole that he is Jude’s baby daddy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
