Justin tries to sandbag Carly’s chances of a position at Salem University Hospital, but his attempts are thwarted when he learns she and Daniel are old friends. Justin warns Bo that Carly has only come to Salem to breakup his marriage. Later Bo tells Carly that Justin told him “everything” and she nervously blurts out that it’s not true.  Sami wants to be the one to trap Stefano into admitting that he has Sydney. EJ is on board with her confronting him at first, but later thinks it might be too dangerous. Sami accuses Stefano of taking Sydney, and he finally shouts that she will never get her baby back. Did Stefano just confess? Nicole appeals to Chloe for information on Sydney, but comes up short. Desperate, Nicole resigns herself to the fact that she’s going away for a long time and she’ll ever see Sydney again. Nicole has a memory of when she was attacked and realizes that the person who hit her and took Sydney was a woman. Meanwhile, in a small cottage, the mystery woman is gently taking care of Sydney. Bo sees Carly still has their Mayan wedding scroll and the shared, intimate memory of their wedding night rattles them both. Meanwhile, Hope starts implementing her plan to befriend Vivian in order to find out what she is up to and what she knows about Carly.  Chloe makes an emotional plea to Brady to visit Nicole in jail and keep her informed of the investigation. Conflicted Brady refuses, determined to shake his addiction to her. Arianna overhears and she and Brady share a kiss. She fills him in on the delayed drug shipment. Brady worries she’ll get sent back to prison if she can’t identify the head of the drug cartel. Sami tries to goad Stefano into confessing he took Sydney. He realizes she’s wired and attacks her, but Rafe and EJ stop him from harming her. Stefano is arrested and Roman says while he’s in jail, the police will find the proof linking him to Sydney’s disappearance. EJ tells Sami he’s very proud of her and thinks she was extremely brave for confronting his father. Rafe and Nicole have it out again over Sydney’s whereabouts. Rafe is finally convinced Nicole is telling the truth. Nicole recalls a distinctive pair of women’s boots walking away with Sydney. In the cottage, where the mystery woman has Sydney, the same boots that Nicole described sit nearby. Brady comes home to Victor who warns his grandson that no good can come from dating a drug dealer.

Rafe makes headway on the lead Nicole gave him. Rafe calls Roman and asks for a favor, explaining he has an idea that he hopes will bring Sydney home. Brady confronts Victor about his role in the drug ring. Victor finally admits that he was indeed the kingpin. He tells Brady that he sold the operation for his sake. Brady asks who he sold it to, but Victor won’t tell him. Brady threatens to call the authorities on his grandfather if he doesn’t give up the info. Victor explains that he’s not protecting himself – he’s protecting Brady. Hope goes home to put some presents under the tree and ends up having it out with Bo. He wishes Hope would come home for Christmas, but she won’t, or at least not until they work things out. They dredge up old wounds from the past and it’s clear they can’t work things out. Bo guesses they’re through. He storms out and a family picture falls, breaking. Hope picks it up, devastated. Carly attend to an older woman. Later during her shift, Carly finds a corpse in her previous patient’s place! Horrified, Carly soon finds some baby’s breath on the corpse from the bouquet Vivian gave her. Carly realizes this incident wasn’t a mistake – it was Vivian toying with her. Rafe secures sodium pentothal and uses it on Stefano. He asks him a bunch of questions and ultimately learns he did not take Sydney. EJ goes to Stefano’s holding cell and overhears him tell Rafe he didn’t take the baby, and that he didn’t hire a woman. Meanwhile, the mystery women’s identity is revealed as Anna Dimera!

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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
