DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Survives Surgery After Being Stabbed, Paul Comes Out To His Family & Then Unwittingly Saves His Ex!

This week on NBC’s Days of our Lives the storyline that continues to drive interest, and is front and center, is that of the brewing same-sex triangle between Paul (Christopher Sean), Sonny (Freddie Smith), and Will (Guy Wilson).

With the events that unfolded, the groundwork has been laid for some heavy duty fireworks and some more twists and turns.  We’ve got to give props to DAYS for knowing that for February Sweeps whom to build one of their major stories around in the character of Sonny Kiriakis, because as of now, in our opinion, the rest of the stories on the canvas just don’t live up to this one.

If you have not seen the episodes this week do not read any further.

The set-up of the events that unfolded began with an extremely touching performance by Christopher Sean on Wednesday’s episode where Paul over the phone tells his mother (Hira Ambrosino) and then his grandfather (in Japanese no less) that he is gay.   With his mother upset when Paul prepares her for the tell-all article that is about to come out, where he admits he is a gay, she is concerned of how his grandfather will take the news and how Paul could hurt the man like this!  But much to the surprise of Paul, when Paul talks to his grandfather,  he tells Paul that he is so very proud of him.  The tears flowed as Will listened in (lurking behind the door), as Paul was so relieved and overcome by his grandfather’s word.  Will let Paul read his article, and the pro baseball player signed off on it, and everything was set in motion for it to go online including leaving the part in the piece about the athlete’s ex and his marriage proposal! Will shares a drink with Paul, unaware that his husband Sonny has been stabbed and brutally attacked, and has been rushed to surgery.

Sonny’s horrible night began when Derrick (Spencer Neville) visited him at the coffee house and informed him that Will has been hanging out with Paul in his hotel room and more!  Mortified, Sonny takes off to go find Will and Paul, but he runs into Victor (John Aniston) in Horton Square, and while there someone  is lurking ready to attack Sonny at the right moment as payback for Victor taking supposedly taking out Clyde (James Read)!   Next, while walking in the park on his way to find Will,  Sonny is attacked and stabbed!  He is found by Victor and Maggie.

Later, after Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) finds Sonny bleeding out in the park, and applies pressure to the wound, he is rushed to University Hospital by the paramedics and needs immediate surgery.  One by one members of the Kiriakis and Horton families find out that Sonny’s life is on the line.  Adrienne (Judi Evans) is beside herself because she can’t reach husband Justin  (Wally Kurth) who is in Dubai, and clearly she is fighting her growing feelings for Lucas (Bryan Dattil0), who is there by her side.  When Sonny is brought in and prepped for surgery the hospital is in low supply of his blood type.  Therefore, they are concerned he won’t survive the surgery.

Maxine( Aloma Wright) remembering Paul’s blood type, calls him to be an urgent donor which Paul is happy to do, not knowing he is saving Sonny’s life.  After giving a lot of blood, Paul has a hallucination of sorts, where he tells Sonny this time that he loves him and wants to marry him!   Elsewhere, Will prays in the hospital chapel feeling guilty for his transgression in his marriage for sleeping with Paul, and admitting he would be alone and lost without Sonny.

Friday’s episode left us with quite the cliffhanger after Chad (Billy Flynn) spilled the beans to Paul, who was leaving the hospital, that his best friend Sonny was stabbed and almost didn’t survive!  Paul is devastated and heads to Sonny’s room, only Will is already in there telling his husband how much he loves him and how much he means to him.  The episode fades to black as Paul is about to walk in the door!

Will Paul and Will finally know each others relationships with Sonny? Who are you rooting for after watching the action this week  … WilSon or PaulSon?  What did you think of the performances of Christopher Sean, Freddie Smith. and Guy Wilson during this week’s key scenes?  Comment below!

Its been one of days better weeks(Sonny and Will belong together)…i was barely watching the show which got to be a big bore for the longest time…hope this is a sign of better writing ahead…also, lets move Nicole away from Daniel and Erik(now here are two guys who are so uninteresting and dull…maybe they should become a couple…lol) and for a change let Nicole find a little bit of happiness with a man who truly loves her! But let dumb Daniel and dumber Erik first find out Nicole was right about sneaky Serena(who Days goofed by not making her Sarah… Read more »

I’m loving the triangle.. but just like everyone else, I’ve never liked Guy Wilson in the part as Will. He’s a great Actor, but he is NOT a great fit for Chandler Massey. He has never ‘felt’ right. The chemistry is just not there.
Sad situation. WILL is the only dishonest, cheater, (only scumbags pull their wedding rings off)! The other two are sincere. Sonny didn’t cheat. Paul didn’t know. DAYS has GREAT writers! I’m LOVING Nicole now. Her day will come. She’s earned it NOW.

Yes, yes, yes, jimh. Nicole is too good for both those boneheads. Eric is a complete train wreck….why is he so dumb?
And, Daniel? What is he looking for, anyway? The perfect woman? Is he perfect? Oh, Lordy, Lord…are there such sainted men as these in reality? If there were, the human race would come to an abrupt halt.

Hi CeeCee,

H-o-n-e-y…your post here made me TRULY LMAO!!!!! ESPECIALLY ‘the human race would come to an abrupt halt’…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Anyway, looking back on all of it now, over half of all of my ex-boyfriends were (and still are) TOTAL TRAIN-WRECKS…LOL!!!!! To me, that’s D-U-M-B!!!!!

Later, CeeCee. Peace.

I honestly agree – Nicole should stop groveling already, and if Daniel says “it’s over, we’re done” why doesn’t she just move on – Daniel is a snooze anyway and Eric a close second. She’s good looking and sharp and eventually she could find someone new, or just stay single for a while, is that a crime in Salem? I think it’s wrong to portray her character as the town punching bag.

This whole storyline unfolded beautifully. DAYS was full of unexpected reveals, some that I didn’t see coming this quickly! Now that is an effective soap opera and a story that really moves. Well done to DAYS. Thank goodness it didn’t take a year for these reveals… unlike Fluke/Luke storyline over at GH.

Let’s hope Sonny has (partial) amnesia and all those flashbacks of PaulSon’s past become his present again. This would give him and Paul the chance to grow very close (again), and when Sonny finally remembers NuWill and what he did to him, he should tell him to go to hell!!! Seriously, Chris and Freddie are rocking their scenes and have amazing chemistry, and Sonny deserves to finally be with someone who loves him wholeheartedly and to the fullest!! After coming out of the closet, there’s no doubt in my mind that Paul is that special someone!!! I really hope TPTB… Read more »

I wish people would stop calling Guy “NuWill.” To Sonny he is the same Will. It’s not like Sonny has been living with an imposter. I don’t think PaulSon will be strong after Sonny wakes up. Will didn’t cheat with just anybody; it was with Sonny’s ex. That is going to shake his trust with Will and it’s going to make things very awkward with Paul even though he didn’t know Will was Sonny’s husband. Geez, Paul flirted with Will even after he knew Will had a “boyfriend” as if it didn’t matter. Paul even wanted to end Sonny’s marriage… Read more »

GW doesn’t fit the role or feel like Will to many hence the NuWill name. It doesn’t matter if he is the same Will to Sonny or not. That is beside the point. To many viewers, he feels like an impostor.

@ iheartwilson – I’m with you, Guy Wilson IS Will. He’s been doing a fine job depicting HIS version of Will.

I’m glad Sonny found out about his cheating husband although I think he might forget about it due to the attack. Judie Evan did great work. She is amazing. I hope Will and Paul find out about each other this week and I really hope they become enemies. I need someone to take down Will. Will can try to take down Paul too. I know who I’ll being rooting for. Glad Paul saved Sonny. Paul stepping up and giving more blood then required for a stranger shows what a great guy he is. I hope the character doesn’t get trashed… Read more »

Only one thing I see a bit differently, though: I agree that Days did originally NOT intend to break NuWilSon up (just wanted to make them “more interesting” and “stronger”), but I believe they observed fan reaction very thoroughly over the last two and a half months (since PaulSon shared their first scene and kiss) and I also believe they realized what a huge wave of excitement the character of Paul and he and Sonny generated in a matter of DAYS and weeks. Meanwhile, it’s all over the web, in the soap mags and even on their own Facebook page… Read more »

I don’t think they pay attention to fan reactions whether negative or positive. If they did, they would have recast Will.

I don’t think fan reaction has anything to do with how this storyline is developing. They’re taping 5-6 months ahead now so when PaulSon had their first kiss, they were taping for scenes in early April. At the Days of Days event in November Guy or Freddie said they were taping their first anniversary.

GH is booooring. Days is so much more exciting and relevant. They really know how to write a soap in the 21st century. On GH, gay characters are being marginalized and stereotyped in the dumbest way possible.

DAYS is quickly turning into a must see heart pounding soap. The Hope and Aiden storyline is heating up this week where they will be featured all five DAYS! And Judi Evans as Adrienne is kicking ass!!! Victor has become the force he once was and Clyde will wish he was dead! Nicole is on the verge of making the men in her life realize what big fools they are. Serena better look out!!! There’s so much more to love about DAYS…It’s moving forward and upward!!!!!

I think the storyline would have flopped with Chandler because I don’t think he could have made the sexual tension between Will & Paul believable.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Why not? Massey is sexy AND gorgeous. One does not necessarily go hand in hand with the other. Some of the not-so-unattractive men/women can be very sexy…so, looks are definitely secondary. But, I neither felt nor saw any sexual tension between Will and Paul. Looking at Will, all I think about is how so unattractive he is and infantile. Only a self-centered idiot with worse aspirations would have betrayed his husband this way. He should consider himself lucky that Sonny even deigned to give him a second look. Oh, oops….actually Sonny gave Chandler’s Will a second look. LOL. NuWill never… Read more »

All 3 actors in this love triangle did such a great and moving job! I feel bad for Will but I really feel he has a lot to make up to Sonny. He shocked Sonny broke his heart and made Sonny furious. I think Sonny was mad at Paul but he doesn’t know Will was writing an article on Paul or that Paul did not know who Will was! Paul has a lot of regret for letting his love go because he wouldn’t admit who he was. Paul realizes now he was in love with Sonny then and he has… Read more »

It’s ridiculous and ironic how NuWill made it all about himself after what HE did to Sonny, while Paul was saving Sonny’s life without even knowing it. The writers are really turning NuWill into Sami 2.0. Allison Sweeney can act, though, that’s the difference.

iheartwilson
Guest
iheartwilson

I’m confused as to why Will & Paul are never a choice because while I’m a die-hard WilSon fan, I like the friendship & sexual tension between Will & Paul much better than PaulSon. PaulSon is all about nostalgia over a relationship that was hidden in hotel rooms.

Guy, Freddie and Christopher’s performance were awesome this week. There story is the only reason I’ve been watching the last couple of months… by DVR to skip over the nonsense of the other current stories.

Guy, Freddie and Christopher hit it out of the park last week! They all equally gave committed and moving performances. Fantastic work from all three actors! DAYS is stepping up! I love it.

I don’t think Pill is viable option in the show unless Freddie Smith is leaving and Sonny is out of the picture. Sonny has been stabbed in the back by Chad, Will and even Paul (unknowing), failed in his second club losing all their savings and got stabbed in the back almost losing his life. There has to be some relieve for Sonny and for the viewers. They have shown him to be great husband and just a great guy and all these horrible things happening to him. Do you or anyone really think that they are going to continue… Read more »

iam so rooting for Paulson. They are so cute and hot together. After what Will did to Sonny…i hope that sonny will not forgive him. i want to see Will and Paul fight for Sonny, but Paulson can have second chance.

Freddie, Guy, and Christopher have been awesome in the story so far. Derrick led Sonny to believe that Will and Paul have been lovers all the time they were meeting which is not true. I think Sonny is now doubting that the article was real. I think when he wakes up he is going to wait to see how long it takes for Will to confess. I wonder if Paul will tell Sonny first to drive a wedge between Will and Sonny. At least when the article is published Sonny will know Will was not lying about that part. I… Read more »

I could care less about Paul coming out to his family. He hasn’t been on long enough for me to care. And then to do it in Japanese-fast forward.

Will be interesting to see if Sonny remembers why he was tearing off when he got stabbed and when Paul and Will come eye-to-eye over Sonny being Will’s husband.

This is a great soapy story, but it’s been undermined by Guy Wilson’s cringe worthy acting. I’ll never understand how he was cast in this role. Guy was suppose to be such a find that TPTB fired Chandler Massey so they wouldn’t lose him. What a joke. Now that Guy Wilson has proven to be such an inadequate actor, it’s time for the producers to get their heads out of the hole in the ground and replace Wilson with a new actor who can act…rant over…Freddie Smith & Christopher Sean are both doing a great job.

iheartwilson

Please tell me people realize that if Chandler was still playing Will that Will would have still cheated on Sonny. Chandler’s Will would have been a cheater, too. If that was the case, would PaulSon fans still want WilSon to break up?

I liked Candler. He was adorable, had good chemistry with Freddie and was a good crier. He was amazing in the coming out storyline. I don’t think it would have been as powerful with Guy. But Guy has chemistry with Freddie, too, and is an all-around better actor, in my opinion. He doesn’t forget his lines like Chandler often did and he doesn’t smirk at inappropriate times. In the beginning, I would agree that Guy had difficulty showing emotions, but he has improved a lot. His scenes the last few weeks have been amazing. Guy is much better at the… Read more »

@ iheartwilson, I get everything you’ve articulated, and I’m in total agreement wih you. Well said. Every actor is different in their depiction of a given character. I remember when Julie Berman left GH as LuLu, oh man, it was very similar with Emme Rylan, so many haters. I guess it’s just really hard for many people to accept what is. No matter the reason(s) for an actor exiting a role, this is what they do in soaps… they recast if/when necessary. It is what it is. Guy Wilson is fabulous and gives us his version of Will, same with… Read more »

Yes. What you said. All of it. Guy absolutely doesn’t deserve the hate. But, you know, “haters gonna hate.” They don’t have anything else better to do. I happen to love WIlSon and I love Guy and Freddie together. And I really loved Chandler, but he’s moved on, so let’s all move on, too. Besides, as wonderful as he was in WIll’s coming out story, I don’t think he would be good as “grown-up Will.” (Not to imply that the character is wildly mature!) Christopher Sean has just knocked me out. I think he’s such a boon for the show… Read more »

I cried with the character of Paul when he spoke to his grandfather. I am so glad Days wrote it the way they did. I have not liked the NuWill up until now. I have seen a better side to the character when he was encouraging Paul. I do not like Paul and Will together as a couple. Sad to say it but I am giving up on Will and Sonny. Sonny is my favorite character and Will cheated on him. Then he did not show any remorse. I saw that he truly is Kate’s grandson as much as he… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
