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: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena’s Exorcism Brings a United Front to Rid Satan

In a great episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it the return of Greg Vaughan as “Father” Eric Brady to exorcize the devil out of Marlena (Deidre Hall) for the second time in her lifetime, but it was not easy.

First, in the bedroom, Sami (Alison Sweeney) finds Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) almost untying the MarDevil, after Satan threatens him with revealing he was the one who kidnapped Sami and even tells Sami, that Lucas has been lying to her! Lucas worms his way out of the situation saying that he has been lying about his feelings for Sami.

Meanwhile, an overwrought John (Drake Hogestyn) is so happy to see Eric in his mother’s time of need.  When Eric takes off his coat, he reveals that he is once again a man of the cloth – priest collar and all.  Eric fills John in that it was actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) who made him come to the realization that he wanted to serve God again, when she told him that ‘collar or no collar, he has never changed.”

Next, Eric meets the MarDevil and tells John to leave him alone with Satan.  MarDevil spews that Eric is an arrogant little man and that he will die.  Now the MarDevil questions how his parishioners who saw the videotape of him having sex with Kristen – although Eric reminds Satan he was drugged – would welcome him as a priest?  Next thing you know, MarDevil shows the infamous sex tape on a laptop! Then, Satan said she thought his true calling was working in “adult entertainment” not for God.

Going for the jugular, MarDevil morphs into OG Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and she is tied to the bed, cooing for Eric, for another roll in the hay.  Eric becomes drawn in and if it were not for Brady (Eric Martsolf) walking in on the scene, urging his brother to resist the devil’s tricks, who knows where this would have led!  But Eric does resist, and MarDevil returns, saying that the fallen priest and his boozy brother are no match for her!

Now that the family is all congregating in the living room not only has Brady arrived, but so too has Belle (Martha Madison), Allie (Lindsay Arnold), and Johnny (Carson Boatman).  Eric explains that they all need to band together to perform an exorcism on Marlena and rid the devil from her.  Lucas exits deciding it should be for immediate family only, and he is already concerned that Satan knows he kidnapped Sami.

In the bedroom, Marlena’s family surrounds the bed as Eric begins the exorcism.  The family prays as Eric asks everyone to join hands and say the Lord’s Prayer.  As they begin the prayer, wind begins to blow and the bed goes up and down as MarDevil is defiant that Marlena will never return.  When the bed settles down, everyone thinks it’s over, but MarDevil surprises everyone and still has a grip on Marlena.

MarDevil then verbally attacks Belle and reminds her that she was the first one to give up on Marlena when she was in a coma and how she cheats on the men in her life calling her a “cheap slut”.  That is followed in kind when MarDevil goes after Sami and calls her a “professional slut”.

Eric insist the family talk directly to Marlena.  They all become a united front as MarDevil is struggling to maintain control.  Then, in a fantastic series of flashbacks, we see Marlena’s memories coming through of each of her family members – and of course, best one ever, of all-time, is John and Marlena reuniting on the pier.

You then hear MarDevil let out a scream “No!” and then she passes out.  After everything is once again still in the room. John sits next to Marlena and calls her “Doc”.  She wakes up, saved!  It’s the Marlena everyone knows and loves!  She is saved on Christmas.   We fade to black.

What did you think of Marlena’s exorcism 2.0 and the episode? Let us know in the comment section below.  But first, check out this tweet of the flashback memories contained with the episode as Marlena fights the devil!

‘Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas’: What Did You Think of the Holiday Tale?

Riffing on Hallmark Channel holiday movies combined with inside Salem wink-winks and nudge-nudges, soap tropes, surprise returns and altered storyline shifts, Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas now streaming on Peacock, had something for everyone, that by the end of its almost one hour and twenty minute tale, you were in the holiday spirit.

In the streaming flick, Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Grant Tinker) are working hard to make sure Will makes his Christmas Eve deadline of turning in his holiday script. So the couple known as “WilSon” conjure up an altered “facts” story… sorta!

Now, Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are running the Brady Pub, because Roman has died.  Paulina (Jackée Harry) is now the Cruella de Vil of Salem aiming to put everyone out of business for her own gain.

Sami learns that Sydney is her biological daughter (something that in the airshow happened years ago) in order for a redux of the classic bitch-slap scene between this version of evil Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sami.

Even though Nicole’s deception is revealed, she doesn’t end up completely alone after EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) dumps her for Sami.  A bum outside the Brady Pub hands her a tissue to wipe away her tears, and it’s revealed to be … Eric (Greg Vaughn in a cameo).

Elsewhere, John (Drake Hogestyn) is not married to Marlena (Deidre Hall), but Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and they run the Inn.  Meanwhile, as per usual, Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen are lusting after each other … complete with one of the best scenes in the special, where a naked Brady, covers his private parts with cue cards that profess his love for Kristen (a la Love Actually).  Meanwhile, Marlena is longing for John, even though he is with Kristen.

Paulina ‘s assistant turns out to be Leo (Greg Rikaart), and as he did in the previous Peacock streaming series … he saved the day! Leo, while going through files on Paulina’s desk, found a loophole that could save Salem business owners from being kicked to the curb.

And it was great to see one of the finest actors, Blake Berris, back on the screen as Nick and longing for Gabi (Camila Banus).  You see, Will writes Nick into his script, while Sonny exclaims that Nick is dead. But this is a holiday tale, so whatever!

In the end, it was the town pulling together for a holiday fundraiser to save themselves with a talent show hosted by Leo featuring: the return of Sonny Delight, Amanda Bottom and Belinda Chinashop, followed by a Santa strip from the hottest men in Salem and voila’ – it’s drag queens and half-naked guys that save the day!
