Hope orders Baker to kill EJ. Knowing that EJ spotted him, Baker freaks and runs off. Hope stays behind to steal EJ’s wallet and toss his phone. When she finds Baker later, he asks if she killed EJ and she toys with him. Hope reveals to Baker that she didn’t kill EJ, was just testing Baker to make sure he’s not some psycho killer. Baker decides to stick with Hope. They split the money, but he palms EJ’s bank card. Hope returns home with the wallet as a souvenir and goes to bed. Sami leaves on a mission to have it out with EJ over him being in cahoots with Stefano. She’s stopped by Johnny, who is having a nightmare about EJ. Sami reassures Johnny, and realizes how it’s affecting Johnny being shuttled back and forth between homes. She finds EJ lying lifeless on the pier and thinks he’s dead. EJ comes to and remembers seeing someone, but doesn’t remember who it was. He tries to get up on his own and collapses in Sami’s arms. Chloe almost tells Daniel that she slept with Philip, but when Carly comes by, she clams up. Soon after, Carly interrupts Chloe, who is trying to call Philip with a heads up not to tell Melanie. At Maggie’s, Philip wants to come clean with Melanie. Just as he is about to spill, Carly calls with the news about Daniel’s surgery being a success. Melanie and Philip show up at the hospital, and when Daniel asks why she’s been crying, she reveals she and Philip had a fight and said some terrible things. Chloe and Philip squirm, each thinking the other gave the secret away, and Chloe blurts for Daniel to forgive her! Vivian is convinced Chloe unleashed her fury on Carly. When she arrives at the hospital, she learns Carly is unavailable and fantasizes about her demise. Vivian runs into Carly and gleefully accuses her of wrecking yet another home. EJ stops breathing and Sami attempts to resuscitate him. EJ revives and, lost in the moment, kisses her. Before she can react, a cop arrives and calls for an ambulance. At the hospital, Sami realizes EJ doesn’t remember the kiss. Rafe confronts Stefano about his and EJ’s rapprochement. He doesn’t buy Stefano’s excuses. Stefano learns of EJ’s attack and he and Rafe rush to the hospital. Stefano assures Lexie he will find and punish EJ’s attacker. Rafe witnesses an intimate moment between EJ and Sámi. On a date, Stephanie notes that Nathan is no longer thinking of Melanie. He tells her they said goodbye and both meant it. Stephanie tells Adrienne that she believes Nathan is her destiny, and that he will soon love her as deeply as she loves him. Chloe almost reveals to Melanie and Daniel that she and Philip slept together. However, she realizes Philip never told Melanie. In private, Chloe and Philip agree to keep their transgression a secret. However, when Chloe calls Philip to confirm Daniel must never know they slept together, Nathan overhears. Meanwhile, Melanie assures Daniel that Philip will never hurt her. Vivian is furious when she realizes her plan to make Chloe confront Carly backfired. She figures out how to ensure Chloe doesn’t find out she set her up to think Daniel and Carly slept together. Baker manages to gain the password from EJ’s bank card and transfers money into his account.   Hope comes down hard on the cop who took EJ’s statement. Roman calls her on this, but Hope wants more details about the attack and feels the cop didn’t get them. Later, Julie arrives and sees Hope with her medication. She questions Hope, who explains they help her sleep. The conversation leads to Ciara and Julie has a theory about her acting out. Hope disagrees with Julie’s assessment and the conversation turns to Justin. Hope says they’re not dating, but Ciara seems to endorse the situation. Later, Hope visits her doctor and tells him she spilled her last prescription. She needs a refill. Baker wakes up to hearing Nicole’s voice on TV, and he realizes she’s risen from the ashes and so will he. With the money he took from EJ’s bank account, life will get easier. However, a bookie finds Baker and takes all of his cash. After the bookie leaves, Baker says this little setback will be remedied once he meets back up with Hope. When he runs into her, however, she’s not the person he expected. Nicole and Arianna learn EJ has been attacked. Nicole wants to interview him and Arianna is her way in. Meanwhile, at the hospital, Lexie tells upset EJ she’s certain he’ll get his memory back. EJ needs to remember because he saw the accomplice, and the person seemed familiar. Later, Arianna shows up and convinces EJ to let Nicole interview him. Nicole starts to ask him questions and EJ suddenly gets the feeling that whoever hit him, was a friend of hers! Mia wants Chad back but it appears he wants nothing to do with her. His mom, Madeline, learns he has a study group at the DiMera mansion and wants him to stay away. When Chad calls her on this, she points out that the Peterson-Woods are public servants. The DiMeras are not. Chad humors his mom, but she has another reason for disliking the DiMeras. Later, Madeline meets with Kate and puts her on notice. Will learns Chad and Mia are through, but Mia vows to get Chad back. And she knows just how to do it, too.

Baker thinks Hope is covering when she fails to recognize him but is later freaked to realize she’s the detective leading the investigation of the muggings. Baker decides to hightail it out of Salem. Meanwhile, Hope goes to tell EJ his bank account’s been hacked. EJ accuses Nicole. Hope hauls Nicole in to the station as the prime suspect. Arianna is pleased when Brady refuses to help Nicole clear her name. Sami talks to Rafe about Stefano and EJ. They argue about whether EJ and Sami have feelings for each other. Rafe gets a lead on Anna, unbeknownst to Sami, and makes plans to leave town. He and Sami say goodbye. Later, EJ asks Sami to commit to moving into the DiMera mansion. Mia tries to get Madeline to help her smooth things over with Chad. Madeline says she can’t. Later, Mia kisses another guy in an unsuccessful bid to make Chad jealous. Will gives her a piece of his mind, but Mia has the last word. Meanwhile, Kate tells Stefano that Madeline Peterson-Woods came by to lay down the law. Stefano finds Madeline and lays down a bit of his own law, but Madeline has something over him and Kate that’s troubling to them both. Kate imagines blood on her hands off the encounter with Madeline. Will sees she’s upset and promises not to let anyone hurt his grandmother.

Hope brings Nicole in for questioning and tells her not to leave town. Nicole decides she needs help and goes to her old partner in crime – Stefano. He turns her away and Nicole realizes she’s on her own. EJ presses Sami for an answer about moving in with him. Sami can’t decide, and goes to Caroline, but rejects her advice to stay away from EJ. Sami tells Caroline that EJ has changed and is a great guy. Meanwhile, Lexie brings Sydney to EJ. He shares his hope that Sami will move in with him. Sami returns to tell EJ she’s decided to move in. Hope goes home, takes a pill, and goes to bed early. Baker, with his bags packed, plays one last poker game to get out of town before Hope comes looking for him. However, Hope finds him before he can leave. Chloe fears Nathan will tell people that she slept with another man. Nathan backs off, but thinks Chloe should tell Daniel herself. Chloe investigates the nurse and motel clerk who gave her wrong info about Daniel and Carly being together. The motel clerk swears she misunderstood him. Carly, Melanie and Philip help Daniel get settled back in at home. Philip is edgy about being back where he and Chloe slept together. He leaves, and ends up drinking at the Brady Pub. Melanie and Nathan run into each other and clear the air, both feeling they made the right choice to not be with one another. They know they are with the right people. Later, Stephanie tells Nathan where to meet her for their date that night, but runs into Philip drinking, and assumes it’s because of Melanie. He tells her it’s him – he’s the bastard.

Days Of Our Lives

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.
