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.

BREAKING NEWS: Days of our Lives Ending Its Run on NBC, Moving to Peacock Starting in September

In a major move, Days of our Lives, the longest-running scripted series of all-time on NBC, is exiting the television network and will now be in its new home on the NBCUniversal streaming platform, Peacock.

The shift marks the end of DAYS’ nearly 57 year-run on broadcast television. Days of our Lives debuted on NBC back on November 8th, 1965.

Look for all-new episodes daily of the series to begin on Peacock starting on September 12th, along with the show’s library already available to stream for Peacock Premium subscribers.  According to a press release from Peacock, “The historic move to Peacock creates the ultimate destination for daytime fans to access the library, new episodes and Peacock Original Days of Our Lives: Beyond Salem in one place.”

In its place, NBC will fill the daytime drama’s current timeslot with NBC News Now, an hour-long news show anchored by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Vicky Nguyen and Morgan Radford. According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC affiliates will also have the option to add local news to the hour.

In a statement, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming chairman Mark Lazarus shares: “This programming shift benefits both Peacock and NBC and is reflective of our broader strategy to utilize our portfolio to maximize reach and strengthen engagement. With a large percentage of the Days of Our Lives audience already watching digitally, this move enables us to build the show’s loyal fanbase on streaming while simultaneously bolstering the network daytime offering with an urgent, live programming opportunity for partners and consumers.”

NBC’s decision means it leaves only three daytime soaps on American broadcast TV: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. 

DAYS has found recent streaming success with its limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapters 1 and 2, which introduced the viewing audience to the Peacock platform.

To watch Days of our Lives on Peacock, you will need a premium-tier paid subscription at $4.99 per month. The service offers an an ad-free experience at $9.99 per month.

We will have more on this developing story.

So, what do you think of NBC removing DAYS from its daytime line-up, while moving it to their owned-streaming platform, Peacock? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Brandan Barash Shares Reaction to Jake’s Death on Days of our Lives: “It Was Fun Getting To Know You”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jake (Brandon Barash) met his untimely demise, when he was shot by a mugger.  Thus, signaling what would seem to be the end of the line for the character.

However, on today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, Jake visited a grieving Ava (Tamara Braun), so perhaps there is more than a ‘ghost of a chance’ that Barash is sticking around.

As previewed exclusively last month during our virtual interview with DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati …the Salem scribe revealed there would be another death in Salem, following the murder of Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller), and the character would be ‘dead-dead’.

However, speculation is running wild that with the return of Dr. Rolf, that perhaps Jake will be resurrected … or Barash will once again play Jake’s twin, Stefan O. DiMera!

On Instagram, Barash had some fun with Jake’s demise with comparison side-by-side photos – one of which features Barash as Jake covered in blood, and reading the Handbook for the Recently Deceased!

Barash captioned his pic: “How it started/how it’s going. #ripjake It was fun getting to know you. 🙏🥃”

So, what do you think about DAYS killing Jake? Do you think Brandon will be sticking around Salem? If so, as who? Comment below.
