Stefano offers Sami a truce, which she refuses. He nearly loses his temper and reveals EJ’s feelings for her. He ultimately forces himself to abide by EJ’s wishes and extends himself to Sami. Sami remains wary of Stefano, but feels more kindly disposed toward EJ again after their conversation. Rafe is convinced there’s something fishy about EJ’s sudden reconciliation with Stefano. EJ makes a case for DiMera family values, but Rafe doesn’t buy it. Rafe abruptly cuts their conversation short when he hears that Anna has been located. EJ panics and runs to Stefano, who assures it’s a false lead. He has sent Rafe on a wild goose chase. Kate, meanwhile, is appalled that Stefano has extended himself to Sami, but she rapidly gets on board once she understands the implications for Lucas. In counterpoint, Sami is shocked to learn that Rafe is still looking for Anna, even after he said he wanted out of her life. Their rapprochement is interrupted when he learns the lead on Anna fell through. Sami assures Rafe of her faith in him. Hope and Adrienne discuss their feelings for Justin. When Justin walks up on them, Justin and Adrienne have a heart-to-heart, and soon realize it’s too late for them. Adrienne makes a move to sell the Cheatin’ Heart and leave town. Hope is overwhelmed with work and family responsibilities. Abe offers to take her off the mugging case, but she needs to prove herself. At home, she tucks Ciara in and goes to bed. Later that night, Ciara is surprised to see her mom coming in from outside and is puzzled to hear her make a strange blurt about Justin. Nathan and Melanie deal with Lexie over the fallout from a patient’s sudden death. Stephanie offers Nathan her support, while Kate gives Melanie a friendly reminder of her obligations to Philip. Melanie and Nathan continue to struggle with their feelings, and Nathan asks her to meet with him so they can figure out how to work together. After working late at the hospital, Lexie comes across unconscious Abe at the pier. He’s been mugged!

Ciara asks Hope why she said Justin might be her new daddy. Hope swears she never said that and worries about her daughter’s well being. Later, Hope learns about Abe’s mugging. She questions him and connects his mugging to the others. Later, she hears Carly on the phone with Bo, telling him that she loves him. Hope tries to get past it. She gets a call from Ciara’s teacher and confronts her daughter about getting caught stealing from school. She expresses her concerns re: Ciara to Victor. Angry Ciara sneaks into Hope’s room and discovers a hidden box under the bed. She realizes her mommy has a secret. Vivian overhears Chloe trashing Carly to Nicole and comes up with a plan. She’s going to push Chloe over the edge and have her kill Carly! After Daniel walks in on Chloe trash-talking Carly to Nicole, they have a huge fight. Vivian moves in for the kill. Carly gives Daniel the good news that her friend, an eye specialist, can treat his double vision with surgery that night. Daniel is stopped from telling Chloe by their fight. Nicole gets a hot tip on Abe’s mugging and rushes to the police station to get an exclusive. Arianna gets a call from the TV station to start her job and meet the reporter she’s working with at the police station. Arianna arrives and she and Nicole realize they’re working together. Vivian overhears Daniel and Chloe fight. After hearing how Chloe dislikes Carly, she wants to find a way to use this information. She later eavesdrops as Father Matt implores Chloe to go to Daniel and talk to him. Chloe considers. Vivian gets an idea when she learns from Victor that Daniel is going into surgery for his double vision and that Chloe knows nothing about it. Vivian knows quite well she can’t harm Carly because she will lose Victor, but she can position Chloe to do her bidding for her. Later, Vivian and Gus go to the hospital, and she pays a male nurse to tell Chloe that Daniel and Carly aren’t in surgery, and that they may have left. Daniel returns to the hospital to get prepped for his surgery. Victor doesn’t want Carly to do the operation, but Daniel says he trusts her with his life. Victor thinks he’s a fool. Later, Carly wants to know if he told Chloe about the surgery. He explains they had a fight and he didn’t get a chance to tell her. Carly urges Daniel to make amends. Surgery begins and Carly lends her support. Hope catches Ciara in her room. After laying into her, Hope confides in Justin and it appears they’re becoming more dependent on each other. Later, Hope wants to turn in. Justin is twigged by this. She goes upstairs and takes a pill. Victor calls Justin on his hanging around with Hope. Justin lays into Victor, claiming he’s been more a son to him than Bo and yet Victor treats him poorly. Meanwhile, Hope has woken up and is strangely not herself. As she gets ready to go out, Justin comes up to check on her.  Nicole and Arianna realize they will be working together for Titan TV. The two argue, but duty calls as they land an interview with Abe. Brady learns about Arianna’s new boss from Gabi and arrives just in time for fireworks. Nicole thinks Arianna should quit, and Brady offers to find her something else. Arianna refuses.

Hope grabs her gun and is about to exit her bedroom when Justin stops by to make sure she’s okay. She lies and says she’s just drifting off to sleep. Justin leaves and Hope sneaks out of the house — and into a poker game. One of the players is Dr. Baker! Nathan insists on talking to Melanie about their feelings for one another. She tells him what was in the letter she wrote and Nathan kisses her, just as Philip enters. Philip quietly leaves. He gets drunk, unaware that Melanie is telling Nathan she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. She’s committed to Philip. Nathan accepts this and they have a bittersweet goodbye, the romance between them over. Chloe learns from a nurse that Daniel and Carly may have gone to a motel. Chloe races to the motel, and the motel clerk leads her to believe they checked in. Unaware that Vivian paid the nurse and clerk to lie, Chloe returns home, takes a drink to calm her nerves, and starts to cry. Unable to be alone with her despair, she opens the door to leave and comes face-to-face with Philip, who was about to knock. Meanwhile, Daniel’s surgery is successful and he looks forward to a future with Chloe.

EJ decides to tell Sami he loves her, especially as they seem to bond even more. When he realizes she still has feelings for Rafe, however, he changes his mind. Sami admits she wishes she never lied about her pregnancy and that she never ended up in Dr. Baker’s clinic. EJ tells her they must think of the future and suggests she and the kids move in with him. While Melanie tells Maggie that all is finally resolved in her mind, Chloe and Philip reel from their mistaken beliefs and end up making love. Afterwards, they are not really regretful of their actions, only saddened that their lives have come to this. They go off to have it out with their respective love interests. To his horror, Philip realizes Melanie was saying goodbye to Nathan. Chloe, meanwhile, comes to realize Daniel could not have been even close to being unfaithful. Melanie and Daniel each see that Chloe and Philip are a mess. Will all be revealed? While sleeping, Rafe cannot get Sami out of his mind. Meanwhile, EJ and Sami discuss whether or not she should move into the DiMera mansion with the twins. Sami fights EJ on this while he tries to convince her it would be best for their family. Before more can be said, Rafe shows up. After EJ excuses himself, Sami tells Rafe EJ’s idea. Rafe goes off on her. Stefano and Will play a game of chess as Stefano tries to get to know his grandson-in-law. After Will leaves, EJ and Stefano realize Rafe might be a hitch in their plan. Stefano finds Rafe at the Cheatin’ Heart, and hints at having information on Anna. At the same time, after speaking to Will about living in the mansion, Sami has a change of heart. Hope and Dr. Baker meet. They talk and Hope begins to reveal her secret agenda. Dr. Baker is a little wary of Hope, but she makes him an offer he cannot refuse. At the pier, Dr. Baker is horrified when EJ spots him. Suddenly, Hope knocks EJ unconscious. Dr. Baker tells her his concerns about how he knows this guy, and she offers him a proposition.

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny and Will Say Their Final Goodbyes and Leave Salem

Not a happy day for fans of Days of our Lives’ WilSon.  Although it has been known now for over seven months that Daytime Emmy-winners, Chandler Massey (Will) and Freddie Smith (Sonny) were let-go from the long-running NBC soap opera, it still was hard to watch them have their final scenes on Tuesday’s episode.

As was in the dialogue, the writers and the show left the door open for a Sonny and Will return down the line when Sonny uttered: “Goodbye Salem, for now.” And, as is with most DAYS characters, they seem to somehow return at one time or another.  But still, it looks like the soap has made the decision to rest the characters.

Before their final exit, Sonny and Will had a visit with Sami (Alison Sweeney) to tell her they are moving to Arizona. Sami is up to her eyeballs in trouble with the custody hearing for Allie’s baby versus Nicole (Arianne Zucker).  Will tells his mother he wants her blessing before they go, and that he already received a blessing from Marlena (Deidre Hall).

An emotional Sami tells Will how sorry she is for all the things she has done, and the mistakes she had made when she was younger and along the way that impacted him.  In tears, Will says he is going to miss her, and the two of then share a hug,

After Sami leaves to head to the custody hearing, Will and Sonny look at Allie’s baby and the two talk about how things worked out for the best; even though Allie did not ultimately let them adopt her child.  The two realize they are about to give their daughter, Ari, a new life and Will thinks another baby and a dog might be in their future, too!

Later, it’s time for one last look at Horton Town Square, and Sonny and Will remember their love from the beginning in a short flashback with a few moments of how they came together.

Will says it’s a tradition for when a Horton leaves Salem to visit the dedication to Tom and Alice in the ‘Square’.  Finally, it’s time for Sonny and Will to say goodbye to Salem for now as they walk out together..

So, what did you think of the final episode of Chandler and Freddie’s? Did you want more time spent on WilSon’s history in the flashback montage? Are you sad to see them go? Comment below.

DAYS Rob Scott Wilson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

If you think you were emotionally drained watching Ben Weston battle himself for control – think of how draining it must have been for Ben’s portrayer, actor Rob Scott Wilson, or for the character of Ben himself!

Well, in the final three episodes last week on Days of our Lives, Rob Scott Wilson once again showed why he is in complete command of this complex character – a former serial killer who has fought so hard to redeem himself, married the love of his life, Ciara (Vicroria Konefal), only to have it all almost wiped out by a heinous plot by Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva).

Eve used drugs and torture techniques to try to drive Ben to kill Ciara as payback for him murdering her daughter, Paige (True O’Brien).  Weston was supported by some very fine scene partners in his performances: the aforementioned DePaiva, Konefal, and Kristian Alfonso (Hope); but it was Rob who drove the scenes and had the meatiest of material to play and boy, did he deliver.

Would Ben strangle his beloved Ciara with a necktie like his other previous victims? Wilson went from one minute being programmed to kill her, to another minute realizing he is in trouble … and so is Ciara’s life – so he tells her to lock the door of the bathroom and to not let him in! Although, as we saw, he eventually lost control and broke through the door and went to turn the lock reaching his hand from the outside to the inside. (Horror film moment!)

Later, when we see Ben crumpled on the floor in tears, Hope finds him, but her daughter is missing and Ben can’t recall what happened to her.  Fearing at first she killed Ciara, Hope is besides herself, and so is Ben.

From beat to beat, from turn to turn, Wilson was terrifying and heartbreaking all at the same time.  And with that, Michael Fairman TV names Rob Scott Wilson our choice for the Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
