DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will Learns He Has A Brain Tumor; What Next For WilSon?

Courtesy/NBC

On Days of our Lives, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) have been through the wringer.  Just like any power couple in “soapdom” they are constantly pulled apart by circumstances that drives distance between them, or prevents them from being happily reunited.  But then, isn’t that was soaps are all about … or, do these boys deserve a bit of peace and quiet?

On Wednesday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama series, Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) drop the bomb on WilSon.  Sadly, Will has a small brain tumor, although believed to be benign, it is is in a section of his frontal lobe that makes it most likely inoperable.

Will asks if that explains his headaches and why he has been passing out, and Rex confirms that is the cause.  He also says the tumor is likely benign, because the larger ones are usually cancerous.  The next step is to do a biopsy.  Rex advises Will to not exercise, drive, work, and to avoid stress right now.

Later at the Kiriakis mansion, Will Google’s brain tumor’s on the internet and is emotionally overcome with what it says.  In tears and looking very sad, Sonny comes on to the scene to comfort Will, but Sonny is looking concerned himself, trying to put on a brave front for Will.  Then, Sonny and Will admit they are frightened for what’s ahead, but Sonny says they must try to stay positive.  Will cries.

These scenes were nicely played by Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, who always bring it in their scenes.

Look for more drama ahead for the duo and their on-screen families as Will deals with this new health crisis.

So, what does Will’s tumor mean for the future of WilSon?  What do you think will happen next? Are you upset that Will has this diagnosis? Do you want the duo to finally have some down time from all the drama, especially after getting Leo Stark (Greg Rikart) out of their lives?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I know this is going to be an emotional rollercoaster for Will and Sonny who have been kept apart for months because of Leo and his blackmail of Sonny roping him into a lifeless marriage. Now that Leo is out of their lives (at least it seems like it) this new complications occurs. Why can’t these two be happy for a bit before life throws them another curveball? Anyway I know these two actors will.bring the drama and knock this out of the park just in time for another Daytime Emmy reel.

I’m heartbroken after watching Will & Sonny find out about the tumor this week. Their scenes were very well written and perfectly played by Chandler and Freddie. Their chemistry is off the charts!

I’m glad #Wilson are together at last, even if it’s under these circumstances. I hope they overcome this obstcle and get married again. We the fans deserve a #Wilson wedding and some happy time for our favorite gays ❤️

It’s why I’m kind of over American daytime soaps right now, and am shifting my focus to UK soaps, because they’re being pretty original and they’re actually entertaining to watch.

I think Pam Douglas on B&B survived a brain tumor, and said tumor’s effects on her thinking explained away her bad behavior toward Donna Logan when Donna was married the Eric.

I have tried the brain tumor excuse on my husband, family, and work colleagues ‘when I drop the ball on some things but they don’t buy it. 🙁 I am still held responsible!

Does this mean Chandler Massey will be leaving Days of Our Lives or will they find a fictional miracle cure for Will? Why does every gay story line have to end with tragedy and death? No Happy Endings in Hollywood anymore.

Why don’t they just reuse the Oscar/Joss scripts from GH, maybe the JT scenes from Y&R.

In other words, do we really yet another brain tumor?

I would really appreciate of all soap writers gave brain tumors a rest. Give us some real medical conditions that characters have to live with and adapt to.

I hope that the Writers starts making more joy on our Soap Opera, it’s supposed to be love in the Afternoon and since Ron C has been at Days it’s all doom and gloom for months on end!! Horrible Storyline that all of the Fans have made Known they are unhappy with!! Are you going to start listening to your Viewers at all!! Maybe think about a new Writing Team

ReRon can’t write for any sort of couple. Gay couples.. straight couples… doesn’t matter. If Tom & Alice Horton or Shawn & Caroline Brady were still alive, he’d find a way to mess up their relationship. Same thing he did at GH.

At least he didn’t make Will a serial killer and blame that on the tumor.

Let them be Happy and a couple from now on and raise that baby girl!

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

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.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
