DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Crashing Through Windows, Unbreakable Bonds, River Of Tears

Friday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives continues the soapalicious drama that began last week with Jarlena’s nuptials, the nuptials that unfortunately did not go off without a hitch, and that’s putting it midly.

John is beside himself as his dear friend Steve looks after him, (in nicely played scenes by Drake Hogestyn and Stephen Nichols) while they are awaiting the news of Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surgery.  When Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tells them the update, we learn that while Marlena survived the surgery one of the bullet fragments is still lodged near her heart and they cannot at this point take it out … it’s too risky.  Poor John is so worried for his longtime love, and eventually once he goes to see Marlena who is unconscious, he breaks down in tears.  Steve has gone on to tell the others about the update on Marlena’s condition.  If you hadn’t ever loved Drake Hogestyn before, you would have now, and if you always loved him than we are sure you grabbed the hankies as he poured his heart out to his doc.

Will (Chandler Massey) has come to the Kiriakis mansion he says to see his daughter, Arianna, now that his memory has returned. Sonny (Freddie Smith) is there, and is at first, disappointed that Will did not say he came to see him, but things quickly change.  But first, Arianna comes running in and call’s Will “Daddy”, which brings tears to Will and Sonny’s eyes, and in particular when Will recalls watching Arianna as a baby, and going to the park with her, and the recognition of his love for his little girl. All of this was touchingly played by Chandler Massey, who is once again delivering gold in these scenes.

When it comes time to address his relationship with Sonny, Will starts by telling Sonny he loves Paul (Christopher Sean), but he then says … and we are sure many a WilSon fan jumped up and down when Will confesses to Sonny: “Ever since my memory has come back.  I’ve been trying to control the feelings that have come with them.”   He goes on to say, “But now, I know my feelings for you run so deep.”  Will finished with, “I do love you.  I have always loved you.”  And with that, Sonny and Will share a major lip-lock.  But little do they know what is about to happen to Paul!

Sami (Alison Sweeney), who has knocked out Rafe (Galen Gering) at the Salem PD, has taken off to find Kristen (Stacy Haiduk).  She wants answers to where EJ is, since Kristen told her he is alive!  Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) has been taken by Kristen back to John’s room at the Salem Inn, which John has all prepared for his wedding night with the good doc, Marlena.  It is there that Kristen seduces Brady, who seemingly cannot fight off his desires for his one-time- lover!   When she is on top of him on the bed, the door busts open and it’s Eve (Kassie DePaiva)!  She has just busted out from being locked in a freezer by Kristen, and finds her man in a compromising position with the dangerous DiMera.  Not good, but Brady explains.

Paul is also at the Salem Inn and runs into Sami. He is there looking for Brady and Kristen, and she wants in as she has to find Kristen. At this point, Kristen has pulled a gun on Eve and Brady; feeling betrayed by the man she says she has always loved.  She says her life has been meaningless since the day she lost Brady.  He reminds her of that little ditty; when she drugged and raped his brother, Eric (Greg Vaughan).  Just then, Sami and Paul bust into the room, and Sami and Kristen have a war of words.  Sami says she knows she will not pull the trigger on Brady, and demands to know where EJ is.  Kristen decides she will kill Eve!

Next, Sami gets the answer she wants, sort of from Kristen that EJ is alive, but Kristen turns the table and says it doesn’t matter, because she is now going to shoot Sami.  Being no one’s fool, Sami starts to remind Kristen that if she does this, Brady will never love her.  At this moment, Paul is making his move!  He grabs the gun from Kristen and pushes Sami out of the way.  There is a struggle between Paul and Kristen and lo and behold, they both go crashing through a window at the Salem Inn, as Brady, Eve, and Sami look horrified.

Great performances by all, a story arc that is continually giving us drama and twists, and another riveting episode, have made DAYS can’t-miss-TV from the end of August now into September.

So, what did you think of Will’s admission to Sonny that he loves him?  What will happen when Will finds out about Paul?  Will Kristen get away?  Will Sami ever find EJ?  Will John finally get Marlena to wake up?  Tune-in next week, but first share your thoughts to these questions and more via the comment section below.

Reading the comments here, I feel as though I must be the only person who perceives Chandler Massey as still being innately uncomfortable kissing another male.

Strangely, this is reminiscent of the kissing scenes between Adam West (Batman) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman), which weren’t believable even to a child viewer back in the 1960’s.

Chandler does get credit for making a real effort, though.

Hi, ChandlerFan, Chandler is sooo gorgeous….I’m so smitten!! Yes, I see the discomfort with Freddy, as well, but not as much. What do you mean about Batman? Was the actor gay? Was he in the closet? I suppose back then being gay was not ‘groovy’? LOL. The same for Rock Hudson ( he died before I was born, I think). I read that he married a woman just to dispel the rumors…..not good for his career to be gay? We’ve come a long way, baby. Thank goodness!! There’d be a lot of unhappy people today, otherwise. Chandler is killing it!!… Read more »

That was an awesome shot of Paul and Kristen falling out of the window, along with Sami, Brady and Eve running to look out of the window.

I read that the actor playing Paul isn’t set to the leave the show until November. I hope he survives this fall and isn’t going to be in the hospital/coma for two months.

And is Stacy H. time on Days almost done? Is Kristen disappearing again? I thought Stacy had a long term contract.

I think the wedding day was the worst performance ever on Days. Kristen with a gun, two NSA agents doing nothing when Kristen and Sami are fighting, Claire kidnapped and Steve just calmly standing around. So what the heck producers, you could have done much better than this.

The falling out windows thing is getting old. But I’m sure Paul is either injured badly and will be left paralyzed and need to go to South Africa with Theo for treatment () or dead. Kristen lands on him ala Joan Collins’ Alexis Carrington at the original series ending to Dynasty that kills Dex.

I really think Sonny needs to get overhimself. He’s weak and a bit of a big baby. Paul is so much more of an Adult. He’s patient and extremely mature. Sonny is a big cry baby … but what about meeeee. Will is better off with someone thats mature.

Carol. Hope you have your sound back, but in the meanwhile,use your Closed Captioning feature on your TV, so at least you can read everything. Hope this helps. I use it all the time, so I don’t miss anything being said.

What a way to dump poor Steve.

Kristen should really try to steer clear of windows. One of these days she may be seriously hurt.

Is Paul going to be killed off? If so, I wonder if Marlena ends up with his heart.
Isn’t that how it goes? Second verse same as the first. We’ve already had the Daniel/Brady heart ” donation”.
Every soap has had this theme, why stop now?!
I really like Paul, so I hope he just goes away for a while, for having his heart broken by Will. Leave the door ajar, as it were.
