After meeting with Gus, Vivian tells Victor that Carly delivered a baby, years ago, in a Swiss hospital. They contemplate who the father is, and where the child is now.  Hope tells Justin she’s ready to move on from Bo. She needs Justin to help her do it. Justin misunderstands and believes she shares his same feelings. Hope, however, asks him to be her lawyer, and serve Bo with separation papers. Justin refuses, but Hope pushes him to tell her why. Justin finally admits that it’s because he’s in love with her. Stunned, Hope doesn’t know how to respond, and Justin tells her that if she’s still in love with Bo, she must fight for her marriage. Bo confronts Carly about avoiding him. She’s angry with herself because she professed her love to Bo knowing that he doesn’t feel the same. Suddenly, Bo receives a call and becomes alarmed. He reveals to Carly that one of his sources found out someone was asking questions at the Swiss hospital where she had her daughter. Panicked, Carly is sure it’s Vivian, and becomes worried that she will try to finish what Lawrence sought out to do – kill her daughter. Caught up in the emotion, Bo and Carly kiss just as Hope arrives to witness.  Philip breaks the news to Stephanie that he’s marrying Melanie. Thinking about her relationship with Nathan, Stephanie couldn’t be happier for him. Meanwhile, Kate and Vivian descend on Melanie to make extravagant wedding plans, but it doesn’t go well. Gus calls Vivian with important news about Carly. Vivian quickly leaves. Nathan shows up at Maggie’s house, and Kate sees the sparks between him Melanie and later tells Philip, who accuses her of trying to stir up trouble. At the same time, Nathan asks Melanie if she’s rushing into things with Philip and a torn Melanie snaps at him to mind his own business. Sami discovers the note sent by the kidnapper. After yelling at EJ for not telling her sooner, Sami wants to tell Rafe. EJ argues that no one is supposed to know, especially not Rafe. At the same time, Rafe tells Arianna that he’s going crazy trying to find leads on Sydney’s whereabouts. He goes to the DiMera mansion to find EJ and Sami arguing. Sami almost tells him about the ransom note, but Rafe receives a call about a lead. While Rafe takes the call in another room, EJ advises Sami not to tell Rafe, but she can do what she wants. Chloe confronts Brady about hearing from Daniel that Arianna is a drug dealer. Brady convinces her that what Daniel heard about Arianna is only a false rumor, Brady confronts Victor for spreading Arianna’s secret. Victor rebuffs Brady and predicts a hard end for Arianna. Troy meets with EJ and realizes that his phone is gone, just as Arianna finds it. Hope sees Bo and Carly kissing. Deeply hurt, she decides to interrupt them and confronts Bo. Bo and Hope have it out about their marriage and Carly. Hope makes it clear that she thinks that Bo, Carly and her secret can go to hell. Hope returns to the Kiriakis mansion and overhears Vivian talking to Victor about Carly’s secret while a shaken Carly returns to Bo.

Just after Melanie rebuked Nathan for suggesting that things are going too fast with her and Philip, Philip comes upon their tense interaction. Nathan leaves and Philip follows him to makes things clear. Nathan is strong, but Philip’s words seem to truly end thoughts of Nathan and Melanie being together. Meanwhile, Melanie insists to Maggie that she knows what she is doing regarding being with Philip, but has a hard time convincing even herself. Later, Lexie urges Nathan to make his feelings clear to Melanie while Philip proposes to Melanie that they elope. Troy meets with Arianna and is pleasant with her, but, he privately plans on taking her out. Carly can’t deal with her feelings for him. Given that Vivian might have found out she has a secret child, Carly decides that she will stay away from her daughter until Vivian is neutralized. Bo reminds Carly she’s not alone.  Hope overhears Vivian tell Victor that she knows part of Carly’s secret. Justin’s arrival prevents Vivian from saying more. Vivian invites Hope and Justin to join her and Victor on their trip to celebrate New Year’s Eve, but both turn her down. Alone, Hope tells Justin about what she overheard and about seeing Bo and Carly kissing. However, she decides to protect Carly from Vivian. Justin gives her an idea on how to do that. In the meantime, Vivian tells Victor that once she discovers the identity of Carly’s child, she plans to take that child away from Carly… permanently.  Sami is about to tell Rafe about the note from Sydney’s kidnapper when he receives a call from his FBI contact. This leads him to explain to her what the Feds would do if they received a ransom note. Sami believes that FBI involvement would not necessarily protect Sydney and she decides not to tell him about the note. She explains this to EJ, who’s relieved, although Sami herself is still torn about her decision. Meanwhile, Anna is keeping tabs on Sami, and makes sure that neither the Feds, nor the cops, will be called.

Hope and Justin implement their plan to search Vivian’s room while she and Victor are away in Chicago. Meanwhile, Carly briefly tells Daniel the truth about Lawrence. While Daniel tries to get the whole story out of her at the Java Café, Vivian and Victor stop by. After Carly leaves, Daniel tells Victor to lay off of her. After they exit, Vivian and Victor go over her plan to find Carly’s illegitimate child. Victor, feeling bad about his encounter with Daniel, decides to call off the trip to Chicago. At the Kiriakis mansion, Hope and Justin find a Chinese puzzle box in which Vivian hid the incriminating papers. They try to open it, but they hear Vivian and Victor’s voices at the door. After they enter, Vivian and Victor are shocked to find Hope and Justin locked in a passionate kiss. Philip convinces Melanie to elope with him to Las Vegas – that night! In the meantime, Daniel encourages Nathan to tell Melanie how he feels. Nathan decides to go to Melanie, but runs into Philip on his way. He learns that Philip and Melanie are eloping to Vegas. Nathan says he won’t allow Melanie to marry Philip and they get into a fist fight. At the same time, Stephanie drops something off to Maggie and learns about the elopement from Melanie. Stephanie says she’s happy for Melanie. She warns Melanie better be faithful to Philip and not come in between her and Nathan. Melanie and Stephanie then wonder where the guys are and get a call. Philip and Nathan are locked in a holding cell…together. Daniel and Chloe share a romantic New Year’s Eve.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
