Hope reacts to Bo having moved his hand. Daniel says it’s a good sign, but Bo isn’t ready to come out of his medically-induced coma yet. Hope, alone with Bo, talks to him about their life together. It’s a huge, emotional and moving moment as Bo’s eyes flutter open. Hope cries tears of joy that her love has brought him back. Stefano has returned to Salem and cordons off a section of the town square for a romantic dinner with Kate. She is wracked with guilt and deeply regrets her night with Ian. She tries to hide her discomfort while making sure Stefano knows how much she loves him. Stefano toys with her throughout the meal, then finally reveals he knows she slept with Ian. He viciously kicks her out of his life. Kate is devastated but things get worse when Stefano tosses her an envelope. Kate reacts in horror at what’s inside and vows Sami Brady is a dead woman! EJ confronts Billie when he catches her looking for the box in the secret panel. Billie is unable to deny she’s been snooping, but does not reveal she’s working for the ISA. She suggests EJ work with her to find the missing money. EJ claims he doesn’t need Billie’s help and she leaves. In private, however, EJ considers the offer. Billie visits Daniel and asks him about Bo’s progress. After filling her in, Daniel asks her to dinner. She declines. Later, they separately arrive at the pub and keep catching each other’s eyes. Finally, they end up dining together and have a wonderful time. As they depart, they both look back for a glimpse of one another.

Abe informs Lexie he has gone to great lengths to find the best specialists and neurosurgeons to consult on her case. Lexie admits she’s made similar calls and has an appointment with a specialist who is coming to Salem. EJ arrives for a meeting with his sister. He vaguely confides that Stefano’s been going behind his back. Lexie sees how hurt he is by this and comforts him. Abe tends to Lexie when she experiences a headache. EJ questions and is devastated when Lexie reveals she has a brain tumor.  At the pub, Abigail runs into Cameron, who has picked up a shift to help Caroline. They’re prickly with each other at first, but they soon bond, especially when Abigail learns he’s Celeste’s son. As Abigail helps him wait tables, the two develop the slightest hint of attraction.  Kate comes to Sami loaded for bear. Stefano has taken Countess Wilhelmina away from Kate and given control to Sami, who is the new CEO! Sami has been waiting for this encounter and lets Kate have it. Lucas gets involved and is shocked by the news. He warns that Sami is enjoying it all a little too much, but she can’t keep herself from gloating. Kate storms off, vowing this isn’t over. Lucas follows his mother to provide comfort and gets another shock when Kate reveals Stefano took away Hearth & Home as well. She and Lucas are both out of a job!

EJ is stunned to learn Lexie has an inoperable tumor. At first he’s in denial and even lashes out at Abe for missing the signs, but soon his anger gives way to devastation for his sister. He regrets all the hell he’s put her and Abe through and vows to help. Lexie says there’s precious little he can do. Later, EJ visits Sami to see his children. He needs to embrace them. He informs her of Lexie’s condition. EJ learns from Sami what Stefano has done to Kate. EJ is furious that once again, Stefano is keeping him out of the loop and making huge decisions without his knowledge. Sami now wonders if she’s going to be running Countess Wilhelmina but EJ takes off without answering. Hope is thrilled when Bo shows signs of emerging from his coma, but she gets a distressing surprise when he slips away and his eyes flutter closed. She races to Daniel for his help, explaining the baby step Bo had taken. She insists Daniel needs to do whatever’s necessary to reverse the induced coma and allow Bo to return to her. After examining Bo, Daniel finally agrees with Hope and brings him out of the coma. It’s touch-and-go for a moment… until Bo opens his eyes and smiles at the sight of Hope. He and Hope share a tearful reunion.

Marlena is still furious that John is working with the ISA again. John insists he’s hardly in it for the thrills – Stefano needs to be brought down. They both know DiMera set him up for embezzlement and then kidnapped him and Hope. And this business with the jeweled egg raises the stakes even higher because they don’t know why Stefano wants it or what he plans to do with it. Marlena is reluctantly persuaded and bitterly laments that their problems with Stefano won’t go away until he’s dead and gone.   EJ comes to the mansion to find an anxious, angry Kate, who’s been locked out. All her things were removed on Stefano’s orders. She’s surprised to hear EJ believes his things will soon be following. He reveals he’s recently discovered Stefano has been plotting behind his back – why, he doesn’t know.

Stefano goes to the hospital, where he confronts Hope and John about the coin they clearly removed from his collectable egg. He wants it back. Hope and John resist, privately knowing they have an advantage if they keep the coin and figure out why it’s so important to him. Stefano is tired of their games and gives them a deadline to return what belongs to him. He warns there will be dire consequences if his demands are not met. He goes. John, Hope, Marlena and Bo know they’ve got their work cut out for them. Meanwhile, Stefano returns home to find EJ and Kate, and he immediately asks that they leave. EJ isn’t going anywhere until he gets some answers. Austin and Carrie have an awkward moment when they run into Nicole and Rafe at the pub. Carrie does her best to hide the hurt she feels over her (mistaken) belief that Rafe slept with Nicole and got her pregnant. Eventually, Austin and Carrie return to their room and make love. She is trying to fully commit to her husband. Later, she goes out to clear her head, not seeing Rafe is out doing the same thing … and the two remain apart.  Gabi comes to Will, asking for help. She thinks she and Chad could have a future if he wasn’t with Melanie. She wants Will to help her break them up. Will reacts in surprise. He can’t believe this; it’s not the Gabi he knows. Gabi opens up, revealing emotional scars over her breakup with Will and her feelings of inadequacy because she couldn’t keep him interested. Guilty Will tries to tell her it was him, not her – but she doesn’t buy it. To make sure she understands, Will finally confesses that he’s gay.  Chad and Melanie invite Abigail and Cameron to an outdoor movie and are surprised the two already know each other. Abigail is a bit put off by Cameron after she chokes on some popcorn and he saves her in front of a crowd. She claims she wasn’t really in danger and he scared her. Cameron just wants a “thank you” and just like that, the two of them are at odds again. Later, after talking to Melanie, Abigail realizes she’s being too hard on him. She asks if they can start over and they start to build a connection.

EJ and Kate confront Stefano. Kate makes one last-ditch effort to get through to her husband, asking for forgiveness. Unfortunately for Kate, Stefano is done with her. He calls her a whore and casts her out. He also tries to brush off EJ, but he won’t let his father off the hook without answers. He wants to know why Stefano has been sabotaging his efforts to lead the family. Stefano is cryptic and simply says EJ has failed. EJ won’t accept this. How could Stefano pull the rug out from under any of his children? EJ goes, and Stefano pulls out the envelope Alice Horton left in the safe deposit box. He looks over the paper again and sadly mutters the shocking truth – EJ is not his son!   Ian interrupts a meeting between Madison and Brady. He insists on talking to his wife alone. Madison reluctantly agrees, and Ian stuns her by agreeing to give her a divorce. She’s skeptical at first, but he assures he wants her to be happy. Madison races out to find Brady, while Ian makes a mysterious call about going ahead with an ominous plan. Later, a tearful Kate reveals to Ian that Stefano knows about their affair and he’s taken everything from her. Ian consoles her and says it’s good she sees the kind of man Stefano really is. Kate is worried Stefano will go after Ian, but he isn’t worried. He vows Stefano will rue the day he hurt her. Ian then reveals he’s set Madison free – he wants to be with Kate now. Madison tells Brady the good news about Ian letting her go and they celebrate by making love. Madison asks if his marriage proposal is still on the table. Brady says it is and Madison is glad – she wants to marry him.  Will tells Gabi he’s gay. At first she blames herself, but Will sets her straight. At the same time, Melanie sees another female fan come on to Chad and she stakes her territory. She and Chad then head to the coffee shop. Gabi sees them and again asks Will for help in breaking them up. He refuses and tells Gabi no good can come from it. Gabi pretends to back down but privately is still determined to come between the happy couple.

Though Sami is relishing her rise to the top of the cosmetic world, she wants to make sure her position as CEO of Countess Wilhelmina is an actual reality. EJ assures her this is the case and he can’t help but throw his hat in the ring to be her partner. She is very new when it comes to business, and he thinks he can help. Sami recalls EJ telling her he had lost some power at DiMera and while he doesn’t divulge details, he does admit his father has undercut him and gone behind his back. Sami is sorry, but she won’t risk EJ’s involvement if it will upset Stefano. She must run Countess W on her own. She does, however, offer EJ her friendship. Sami also inquires about Nicole. EJ admits he still wants her back, and will do whatever he can to persuade her.  Carrie wakes up in bed with Rafe … and then realizes it’s just a dream. She’s forced to put up a good front for Austin, who is so happy they’ve reconciled. Later, she calls Rafe and the two of them meet. Carrie confides she can’t get him out of her head or her heart … which is unfair to Austin. Rafe admits he wanted to be with her, but never pursued it because he heard her tell Austin she wanted to make a go of their marriage. Carrie is stunned. If he wanted to be with her, why did he sleep with Nicole and then lie about it? Rafe tries to explain but Carrie backtracks and tells him he owes her no explanation. Carrie knows even if she wanted to be with him, they couldn’t – because of Nicole and the baby. Rafe tells her that’s not true, and it looks like he might confess.  Later, EJ runs into Nicole. She starts to leave, but he stops her, insisting he can’t lose her. At the same time, Sami runs into Austin and he learns about her taking over his mother’s company, which unsettles him. The conversation then turns to him and Carrie. Austin reports they are committed to making their marriage work, but Sami warns him to make sure Carrie is truly over Rafe.

Lucas finds Kate and Ian together and realizes he is the reason Stefano kicked Kate to the curb. Ian assures Lucas he loves his mother very much. Lucas suddenly remembers Ian from years ago when he joined Lucas and Kate for a ski trip. He fondly recalls Ian helping him learn to ski. Madison tells Brady she’s concerned Ian might have a change of heart about the divorce. Brady promises not to let him disrupt things between them. Madison learns Sami is in charge of Countess Wilhelmina and receives a declaration of war from her former employee. Later, they receive a text from Ian, asking to see them … A wary Brady and Madison arrive at Titan, where Ian, Kate and Lucas are waiting. Ian explains he’s called Madison and Kate there to assemble the troops against Sami and Stefano. In a stunning moment, he names Kate co-CEO of Mad World – much to Kate’s surprise and Madison’s horror.

Days of our Lives Concludes Special Episode In Loving Memory of Bill Hayes

You needed the hankies for Wednesday’s February 21st episode of Days of our Lives in more ways then one. The highly-touted show featured newly created flashbacks of a young Tom (Zach Chyz) and Alice Horton (Sydney Kathrann Smith) eventually moving into to their dream house.

But as viewers saw in recent episodes, the Horton house was burned to the ground thanks to an unnamed arsonist. Today, marked the first time that Doug (the late Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) returned to see the ashes of the home they all lived in at one time or another and where they all share so many memories with the Horton family.

In addition, Leo (Greg Rikaart) decides to do a story for the Spectator on the Horton family and visited the rubble, where Julie recited the family history and the ups and downs, and yes, some of the zany plots the Horton children and grandchildren found themselves in over the years.

There was also use of flashbacks where characters such as: Julie, Marlena (Deidre Hall), Maggie, and perhaps most touching, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), recalled times with Tom (the late MacDonald Carey) and Alice (the late Frances Reid). Knowing that Bill Hayes has left us, and then preparing ourselves for which will soon be the airing of his last episode, made this all the more emotional.

And, at the conclusion of the episode, and after the final flashback of young Tom and Alice Horton, Days of our Lives paid tribute to Bill Hayes and dedicated the episode to him. A title card came up that expressed: “In loving memory” of Bill Hayes with the touching words from Hamlet, “Good night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”

Meanwhile. on the Hayes’ Instagram account, Susan Seaforth Hayes shared behind-the-scenes photos from today’s episode accompanied by her words, “Thank you for loving this lovable cast. We all, fans and actors, are a family! Onward to stories about us, eh?”

So, what did you think about today’s episode of Days of our Lives being dedicated and in honor of Bill Hayes? What did you think about the flashbacks from the past and the newly created ones as part of the story? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jada Reveals Everett Is Her Ex-Husband Bobby Stein

On Monday’s February 19th episode of Days of our Lives, viewers are getting closer to the root of the story of Everett Lynch (Blake Berris).  There has been speculation for months as to just how the talented Blake Berris’ new character would be … a good guy, or a bad guy. But, what if he is actually both?

In story, Jada (Elia Cantu) and Rafe (Galen Gering) are at the Brady Pub and she comes upon on Everett with Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and freaks out. She reveals that Everett is her ex-husband Bobby Stein! Everett denies even knowing Jada and thinks she is mentally unstable or something. Jada even shows him a photo of her with him (sans his beard) from her phone. Everett throws it off as everyone in the world has a doppelgänger.

Jada accuses Everett of gaslighting her. She goes into the back-story of when she discovered he cheated on her, and she served him with divorce papers, but he turned into a “ghost.” Everett stands by his claim that the two of them were never married.

Stephanie flashes back to Everett revealing he had retrograde amnesia when he initially came out of his coma citing maybe that’s the reason he doesn’t remember Jada.  Next, Jada goes off on him saying she can tell by the look in his eyes, he knows exactly who she is.  Jada warns Stephanie to not get ‘sandbagged’ by this guy any longer. She then threatens Everett that he will be found out and get what he deserves. Next, she torms out of the pub as Rafe follows her.

Alone with Everett, Stephanie becomes upset having a few more startling realizations. First she asks Everett, “Are you really not Bobby Stein?” He admits to having gaps in his memory, but not years of relationships or marrying someone.

Then, in another flashback, Stephanie remembers Everett telling her he bought an engagement ring before his accident. Then, Stephanie recalls a conversation with Jada how she found a large credit card charge from a jewelry store and that Bobby hadn’t bought anything for her in several months.

Stephanie is shocked, and tells Everett if Jada is telling the truth, and he’s really Bobby Stein, than she’s actually the other woman!  Next, Stephanie decides to leave, while Everett says this makes no sense, and they should talk about.

So, what do you think of this story … that it appears Bobby Stein is also Everett Lynch? What do you think will eventually be revealed? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: The Iconic Horton House Burns to the Ground; Harris Clings to Life After Being Shot

There was plenty of evil intent on Monday’s February 13th episode of Days of our Lives.  First, fans were not happy that the series chose to burn to a crisp the beloved Horton home that has been the centerpiece of the show since 1965.

The Horton house is where Tom (MacDonald Carey) and Alice Horton (Frances Reid) lived and raised their family for decades. All of the Horton family Christmas ornament hangings have been held in that set, and so much more.

In story, a masked man pours gasoline all over the inside of the Horton living room then sets it on fire and exits. When the fire alarm goes off, Chad (Billy Flynn) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) come downstairs to find the place torched. In short order, Doug (the late Bill Hayes) and Julie, Chad and his children, all make it to safety outside and watch the iconic home burn.

Julie is overcome with emotion. She cries out about all the history there is in the home as firefighters work to extinguish the fire. Doug tells Julie that the important thing is that they’re all safe, but Julie watches almost half her life go up in smoke!  Meanwhile, Thomas (Cary Christopher) asks Chad about the pictures of his mommy! Chad is about to respond his son, but gets a call with a voice which has been altered saying. “Maybe next time you’ll listen.”

Any Days of our Lives fans, we are sure, had trouble with the decision to torch the Horton home. Hopefully, as previewed, this will give Julie at least a story as she is determined to rebuild the home in upcoming episodes.

Elsewhere, there were gunshots and wounds and a near-death situation for Harris Michaels (Steve Burton) after he was shot. Ava (Tamara Braun) finds Harris outside the Bistro, bleeding out. She flashes back to Harris telling her that he loves her.

Photo: JPI

Tripp, Wendy (Victoria Grace) and Stefan (Brandon Barash) come upon Ava and Harris. Next, Tripp goes into doctor mode.  Ava cries that this wasn’t supposed to happen. Stefan asks what she meant by that and she responds, “nothing.” When Rafe (Galen Gering) and Jada (Elia Cantu) arrive on the scene, Rafe gets a call about the shooting at the Brady Pub.  Later, they check Harris’ room and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) reveals he thinks Clyde is responsible for the shooting and that he was coming after him.

Photo: JPI

Outside the bistro, as the paramedics arrive, Tripp loses Harris’ pulse and starts chest compressions. After awhile, they get Harris to breath again and he is taken away.

So what did you think about the torching of the Horton home? Did it upset you? With Steve Burton exiting Days of our Lives on-screen, which was originally believed to be in the spring, will Harris make a full recovery? Comment below.
