DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

Courtesy/NBC

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Did Wally Kurth just lock up an Emmy nomination with this scene that aired on Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives? Did you reach for the hankies?  Share your thoughts on the heart-tugging scenes via the comment section below.  But first watch some key moments from it.

Ron has said when he uses Judi going forward, it will be as Bonnie Lockhart.

Ryan, I have read this also. I wonder how Wally is enjoying all his lady co-stars, and would just love to know which one he prefers.

That’s ridiculous. Nobody wants to see Bonnie.. or any of the other Lockharts ever again.

Not true. I’d like to see Bonnie with Clyde.

That could be entertaining… because Clyde would probably put up with her for about 20 minutes.

Like Wally good guy. Glad he is getting chance to spread his wings. Not a fan of Justin and Kayla long term..seems like a good relationship to rebound out of difficult times. Chemistry (to me) is more friendship. I do hope down the road they try him with Kassie; they have some good chemistry between them or maybe Hope she could use someone like jolly Ned after all she has been through.

I was so taken by this exchange with these actors it was so real. The emotions expressed by their faces and voices were heartbreaking. This was so true to Wills character his anguish and pain. If you know their history Justin was always a champion for Will. Wally K. pulled our heart out of our chest and placed it in Chandlers. The acting was the best I have seen on this show since a dying Will asked Sonny to marry him. Two great actors who gave validity to the power of Love and never giving up. Thank you to both… Read more »

Wally Kurth and Chandler Massey were truly awesome in this scene. It pulled at ALL of my heart strings. I expected no less than for Justin to tell Will he forgives him. Even though I don’t like the story, the acting is awesome.

Really great scenes. Would love to know how Adrienne died. I’m thinking car accident. Has Will had his trial and been sentenced? And why is he sharing a cell with a death row inmate? Aren’t they generally in cells by themselves? I know, it’s TV. 🙂

Yes, Momo, I’m guessing a car accident resulted in Adrienne’s death. That will soon be revealed. Will was already sentenced, how long for is yet to be seen. And Ben doesn’t have to be moved to a death row cell until his last appeal is denied.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
