As Nicole and Taylor are about to enter the DiMera mansion, Rafe2 throws Fay down the stairs! He rips her cameo necklace off her body and quickly hides. The sisters finally enter the house and are horrified to find their mother lying at the bottom of the steps, bleeding and unconscious. Rafe2 leaves thinking – and hoping – that Fay is dead. Nicole and Taylor call for help and rush their mother to the hospital. EJ overhears Johnny boasting that “Rafe” helped him learn how to fight. EJ uses the opportunity to confront Sami and put pressure on her regarding her out-of-control husband. Sami goes home and finds a nervous “Rafe,” who lashes out at her. EJ arrives at the hospital. As Nicole goes to sit with her unconscious mother, EJ tries to comfort Taylor, who pushes him away. Taylor calls Sami and lets her know about the accident. Rafe2 is stunned when Sami informs him that Fay is hanging on. Sami is baffled by his reaction. Meanwhile, Daniel and Carly tell Nicole and Taylor that Fay was not on medication at the time of her fall. The sisters wonder how she ended up falling down the stairs if she wasn’t affected by meds. In the hospital room, Fay awakens, stunned to find a concerned EJ by her side. As Fay recalls overhearing EJ’s evil plot, her monitors start to go wild.

Carly swears to herself that she will never again use a drug to numb her pain. She’s still jumpy when she runs into Adrienne and Justin, but covers. At the hospital, she’s once again tempted, but manages to exert some self-control. Meanwhile, Jennifer invites Daniel over, and they discuss Carly’s erratic behavior. Later, Jennifer uses a chair to adjust a picture and ends up falling… right into Daniel’s strong arms. The close, physical moment sparks a feeling in both of them – and Daniel beats a hasty retreat. Justin and Adrienne decide to elope!    EJ’s presence causes Fay to have a cardiac arrest, but Carly and Daniel manage to revive her. EJ confides in Lexie that he must have upset Fay, though he doesn’t know how or why. EJ longs to comfort Taylor but must play the role of dutiful husband to Nicole. Later, he tells Taylor he thinks Fay might be on to their feelings for each other. Meanwhile, Nicole goes home to investigate her mother’s accident and discovers the pills she hid. Nicole wonders why she didn’t take them. Rafe2 is panicked when he realizes Fay might be able to speak and implicate him in her fall. He tries to flee from the loft but Sami stops him. He ably covers and is relieved when he realizes Fay is currently incommunicado. He seizes an opportunity to slip over to the hospital to take care of Fay, once and for all. Later, Caroline drops by the loft to visit Sami and watch the kids. Sami decides to visit Fay at the hospital. As “Rafe” prepares to inject a fatal air bubble into Fay’s IV, an unsuspecting Sami approaches the room.

Melanie discovers Dario has used the money from Brady to hire a new private eye. In turn, she decides to use some of her divorce settlement money to offer a reward for any information on Arianna’s hit-and-run driver. Melanie tells her parents, who are impressed by her generosity. Dario is far less impressed. Meanwhile, Daniel tells Carly he’s worried about her. She admits she was having a tougher time than she let on but assures him that everything is fine now. Chloe comes upon Philip in a secret meeting with the social worker and jumps to the conclusion that he’s trying to take Parker away from her. He explains that, in fact, he’s trying to help her regain custody. Chloe and Philip continue to draw closer.

Rafe2 is about to inject an air bubble into Fay’s IV when Sami enters the room. He manages to hide the needle. Before Sami can question him as to why he’s there, Fay’s alarms go off and Rafe2 is hopeful that Fay will die, but she does not. “Rafe” lamely tries to tell Sami that he was checking on Fay as a favor to his wife. She doesn’t quite buy it, but lets it go. Rafe2 freaks, knowing if Fay recovers, she’ll tell everyone he threw her down the stairs. He plots to get back into Fay’s room, but Sami insists he come with her. She drags him to their special spot in the woods to get back what they had. A frustrated “Rafe” loses it and threatens Sami’s life. Taylor and EJ worry that Fay may have discovered their feelings for each other and that it may have somehow led to her falling down the stairs. Taylor is stricken that it almost killed her mother. She says they have to tell Nicole, because when Fay comes to, she’ll tell Nicole anyway. Nicole returns to the hospital and goes into EJ’s arms, happy her mother may be on the road to recovery. She hopes Fay can tell them what happened and what she was calling Nicole about before she fell. Later, Taylor visits her sleeping mother. She confesses all and begs for her forgiveness. Fay starts to open her eyes.

Dario thinks Melanie posted the reward for Arianna’s hit and run to impress him. Melanie is livid. She makes an impassioned speech about how much Arianna meant to her. Dario is affected. Dario later runs into Stephanie and questions her about Melanie, wondering if she’s as bad as he first thought. He begins to think better of Melanie until he spies her hugging Brady. Brady and Victor continue their strife over Titan. Later, Victor asks Maggie to go to Paris with him. Maggie thinks he means forever, but Victor says it’s just for dinner. Maggie still turns him down. She says she’d rather cook dinner for him here in Salem. Later, Maggie asks Melanie to play peacemaker for the Kiriakis men. Melanie tries, but doesn’t blame Brady for what he did. Brady is touched. Frustrated that Sami inadvertently prevented him from killing Fay, Rafe2 has a fantasy of killing Sami. He snaps out of it and tries to be like Rafe. He leaves a still-troubled Sami who confides her concerns to Caroline. No longer believing his behavior is tied to the brain trauma, she is determined to figure out what’s wrong with him. Meanwhile, “Rafe” goes to the police station and tells Detective McCarthy he’ll be away all night on a stakeout (creating an alibi so he can kill Fay). McCarthy insists on going with him, so he sends her on a diversion. He heads back to the hospital and rummages through the supply room for surgical scrub. Fay struggles to speak and manages to tell Taylor to help Nicole. Unable to say more, she drifts back to sleep. Taylor relays the message to Nicole and EJ. In private, Taylor tells EJ she doesn’t believe Fay’s agitation has to do with their feelings for one another. As they question what could be troubling Fay, Nicole sits with her sleeping mother, telling her how much she loves her. Fay awakens and says to Nicole, “EJ… secret.” Chad tells Abigail he’s moving into the DiMera Mansion that night and wants her to go with him. They meet up with Stefano and Kate and walk in on Mary still cleaning Fay’s bloodstains from the floor. Stefano calls EJ for the scoop on her fall, while Chad genuinely thanks Kate for sending him his birth certificate, which led him to his real family. Stefano is pleased, but later, he overhears Abigail telling Chad she thinks the bloodstains were a bad sign – it was a mistake for him to move in. Stefano is not pleased.

Fay mutters two words to Nicole – “EJ” and “secret.” Nicole is unable to question her further when Fay becomes agitated and Lexie has to sedate her. Abe tries to reassure Taylor and Nicole, and backs Lexie up when she insists Fay not have any visitors. The sisters head home, where Nicole thanks a guilty Taylor for coming back into her life. They decide to head back to the hospital and check in on their mother. At the same time, the Rafe2 manages to get into Fay’s room and prepares to kill her – just as she opens her eyes in horror. At the asylum, an amnesic Rafe is getting stronger and is more determined than ever to find out who he is and where he came from. Carly overhears Vivian on the phone with Carly’s son, Nicholas. As Vivian wishes him a happy birthday, she sees Carly’s heartbreak and plays it up. Later, Carly calls Nicholas and tries to make amends, but he can’t forgive her for killing his father. He declares that she’s dead to him. Carly goes to the hospital, where she hears Abe talk about his relationship with his son. A wrecked Carly lifts some meds and is sorely tempted to take them to ease her suffering, but she’s able to resist – for now. Later, Gus tells Vivian the DiMera Mansion is empty (or so he thinks!), and Vivian intends to uncover Stefano’s secrets that night! Bo and Hope question Ciara’s classmate, Kimberly, about her daring Ciara to scale the school fence. Kimberly insists Ciara is lying. Ciara, who doesn’t want her parents to realize she was trying to run away, stands her ground. Bo believes in his daughter, and he and Hope decide to let it go. Happy they’re on the same page; Bo and Hope have dinner and then go home. Things get romantic, and they make love for the first time since their reconciliation.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Craig Reveals to Chloe He’s In Love With Another Man

Looks like it’s the end of the line for “Crancy”.  On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, once outside of the Brady Pub, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) overhears Craig (Kevin Spirtas) talking to someone on the phone and calling them “sweetheart”.

This confuses Chloe all the more, when Craig just had professed there is no other woman in his life than his wife, Nancy (Patrika Darbo), even though Nancy came back to Salem knowing there is trouble brewing in her marriage.

Craig admits to Chloe, who accuses him of cheating on her mother, that he is indeed cheating on her, but not with another woman, but a man.

Chloe is gut-wrenched and starts to cry and asks Craig … if he is gay? Craig owns up to that he is attracted to men, so if that makes him gay, then he’s gay.  He also adds that he loves Nancy very much.

Next, Chloe wants Craig to end things with the guy and Craig refuses, saying that he and the other man share a great connection and chemistry, something that he’s never felt before and … wait for it … that he is in love with him.

A teary-eyed Craig swears he never meant to hurt Nancy.  Next, Nancy comes upon the scene and announces to Craig that they are staying in Salem, while Chloe tells Craig he needs to come clean with her mom.

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!
