Bo warns her to keep her distance in order to protect Melanie from Vivian. Via webcam, Ciara witnesses Carly and Bo kiss. Affected, she runs to Caroline, who decides to go to Bo’s for a surprise visit.  Caroline and Ciara walk in on a warm moment between Bo and Carly. Alone with Bo, Caroline urges him to make things work with Hope. Bo reminds her that Hope walked out on him, and Caroline reminds him about the repercussions this will have on Ciara. Caroline isn’t convinced that Bo’s relationship with Carly is serious and expresses her disapproval. Caroline leaves, and Bo helps Ciara with a picture. He finds a photo of himself, Ciara and Hope in happier times. Melanie refuses to let Nathan examine her hand. Carly witnesses the sexual tension between them. Alone with Melanie, Carly gets her to admit she’s torn between Nathan and Philip. Carly suggests that Melanie take time to decide who she wants to be with, but Melanie decides she’s going through with the wedding, and invites Carly. Carly is touched. Meanwhile, Stephanie shares her doubts about Nathan’s feelings for her with Justin. He advises her to be honest with him. When Stephanie meets with Nathan, he invites her to a romantic getaway. She agrees, but they’ll go after Melanie and Philip’s wedding. The two kiss. Hope questions Vivian about her interest in Melanie. Vivian makes small talk and keeps her true intentions for Melanie hidden. Vivian has an appointment and leaves. Hope decides to take action. She asks Justin to help her steal Vivian’s puzzle box that contains Carly’s secret, and he agrees. Vivian returns unexpectedly and Justin stalls her until Hope slips out of her room. Later, Vivian meets with Gus and tells him she hasn’t figured out how to get rid of Melanie, but knows when: on her wedding day. Justin and Hope, meanwhile, move to his hotel room for privacy. Hope opens the box. Chad thanks his father for letting him go Vancouver with his friends. At the same time, Mia continues to resent that Gabi is going to the Olympics with Chad. Mia goes to D.A. Woods and makes it sound like she’s going on the trip and that she and Chad are still together. Meanwhile, Will looks for Mia, who supposedly went to check on Maggie. He finds her back at the Java Café and questions her whereabouts as Chad, getting off a heated phone call, announces to Gabi, T and Kinsey that his dad canceled their trip. Mia is secretly pleased. Hope cracks open Vivian’s puzzle box, and is heavily upset. Justin asks her what’s inside and Hope tells him that Carly’s secret is that she has a daughter. Fearing the worst, Hope thinks Carly’s child might be Bo’s, but she talks her way out of that theory. Bo would have told her. Hope realizes that if she had been around, maybe Bo would have shared all of this with her.

Vivian and Gus plot how to end Melanie’s life. She sends Gus on an errand to pick up something special for Melanie. Victor shows up and in private warns Vivian to leave Melanie alone. It’s Carly he wants her to take care of. Vivian agrees and asks Gus to do one more cryptic thing. As much as Vivian hates betraying Victor, she’s going to take care of Melanie and Carly, once and for all. Hope and Justin return to the Kiriakis mansion. Justin offers his support and Hope thanks him. Justin and Hope share a hug, that Victor witnesses. Hope goes to talk to Bo and Victor blasts Justin. Justin tells his uncle that he’s going after Hope. Victor thinks he’s a fool, but Justin is determined. At the same time, Hope runs into Vivian and knocks her “gift” for Melanie to the ground. Bo learns that Melanie invited Carly to her wedding. Carly is excited, but Bo thinks it’s a bad idea. Vivian is still on the prowl and, despite the fact that they buried the information at the Swiss hospital, she might still be suspicious. Carly realizes Bo has a point. Worried for Carly, and wanting to move their relationship along, Bo invites her to move in. Carly is touched and agrees. Bo goes to get her belongings at the Salem Inn as Carly is called in to the hospital. Bo brings her stuff home and while he’s outside on a call, someone opens Carly’s bags and cuts her clothing to bits. Meanwhile, Carly supervises in the operating room with Nathan, who makes a mistake. Carly saves the day and calls him on his lack of focus. She thinks it has something to do with Melanie, but Nathan shuts her down and walks away.  EJ expresses his joy in Sami and Rafe’s break up. Anna tries to warn him that Sydney will be hurt in all this, but EJ puts her on warning. He knows what’s best for his daughter.  Arianna is afraid she won’t be able to fulfill her promise to Melanie and be her maid of honor. She goes to the Brady Pub and interrupts Nathan and Stephanie, who are planning their getaway. Nathan takes off, and Melanie arrives in time to overhear Arianna tell Stephanie about how she might be going to prison. Melanie says that Stephanie can take over for Arianna if that happens, but she isn’t so sure. After Arianna leaves to meet Roman, Stephanie agrees to be a bridesmaid. At the same time, Arianna learns from Roman that she’s a free woman. She tells him that Anna is back in town. Roman calls Anna while Arianna runs into EJ.

Anna is forced to admit to Roman that she’s in Salem and concocts a tale to cover her lies. Roman persuades her to go offer Sami a kind word. Anna is relieved to find Sami not there and scrawls a note to shove under the door. Unfortunately, after she does so, she turns and finds herself face-to-face with Rafe. Bo realizes to his horror that Ciara is the one who shredded Carly’s clothes. He tries to talk to his daughter but gets nowhere. Meanwhile, Hope nearly sees Vivian’s secret for Melanie’s wedding day. Hope heads over to Bo’s to tell him that Vivian knows about Carly’s secret daughter. Before she can say anything, she sees Carly’s ruined wardrobe. She reels off the facts that Ciara did this, and she did it because she found out Carly moved back in. Hope is appalled by Bo’s handling of the situation and decides she’s not sure it’s in their daughter’s best interest for Bo to continue to have visitation rights. Carly walks in on their fight. Vivian visits an associate and has her mysterious weapon prepared for the wedding. Later, Melanie wonders what the gift is. Vivian may just decide to give it to her, right away. Philip and Melanie make wedding plans. Later he’s forced to break the news to Kate that she and Vivian are going to walk down the aisle together as mothers of the groom. Kate is forced to temper her reaction, but is truly hurt. She later vows that this will not stand. Stefano has received an eviction notice. He tells his son that it is time for his vendetta to end. EJ begs to differ. Carly and Nathan exchange words about Melanie and Daniel intervenes. Nathan leaves a message for Stephanie to reconfirm their trip while Carly thanks Daniel for all his help.

Sami brings Johnny to EJ’s for the night and finds a travel brochure. EJ admits he wants to take their child as far away as possible. Sami can’t believe he’d leave in the middle of the search for Sydney. Meanwhile, Rafe comes upon Anna leaving a note for Sami, and demands to know who she is and what she wants. Sami shows up and explains all. Sami insists Anna stay for a visit. Anna squirms when Sami opens up to her emotionally about Sydney being missing. Anna becomes more upset and finally has to leave. Rafe finishes getting the rest of his things, has one last moment with Sami and vows not to leave one stone unturned in his search for Sydney. Later, EJ talks to Johnny about them leaving Salem with his baby sister for good. Rafe shows up, and asks EJ about Anna. Vivian almost gives Melanie the deadly gift, but decides to wait until the wedding. Kate enters, and after Melanie leaves, has it out with Vivian for hijacking the wedding. Vivian tells her to leave and goes to take a call from Gus. Kate does leave, but not without Vivian’s gift for Melanie. When Vivian returns with Gus, she realizes Kate must have taken it. Kate goes to pier, about to drop the gift in the water, but wonders what’s inside.

Carly comes in on Hope saying she’s taking Ciara from Bo. Bo and Hope fight, and as it starts to get ugly, Ciara comes in. Both parents try to reassure her, and Hope takes her away. Carly decides she should move out, but Bo says he’s not losing Ciara or Carly. With Melanie’s best interest at heart, Carly tells Bo she’s going to decline the wedding invitation. At the same time, Hope and Ciara meet up with Justin. She says she couldn’t tell Bo about learning of Carly’s daughter. Later, Hope sees Ciara and Justin sharing a nice moment. She can’t help but think it’s all so wrong. Melanie asks Maggie to be her mother-of-the-bride and she accepts. Sami speaks with Brady and reiterates her separation from Rafe and the implications of Anna’s visit. Rafe shocks EJ by asking about his connection to Anna DiMera. EJ claims to know very little, but tries to get Rafe to back off of pursuing Anna. This only raises more suspicions with Rafe. EJ is nearly caught, but is able to turn things around and put everything on Rafe’s motives with Sami. The men argue and Sami overhears. Sami leaves with Rafe, and EJ meets with Anna and tells her she’s messed up big time. EJ tries to dismiss Anna, but she will not go quietly. Meanwhile, Sami and Rafe have it out about his going after Anna. Rafe admits he truly believes Anna could be a lead, and he’s only done what he’s done for Sami. When he tries to leave, she runs after him and the two kiss passionately. Carly asks Daniel to make sure she has to work during Melanie and Philip’s wedding, and he agrees. Daniel realizes Carly is hiding something involving Melanie, but lets it go. At the same time, Kate gives Melanie Vivian’s secret gift box. Melanie nearly opens it but Vivian stops them. Melanie goes and to Carly. They share a wonderful, and very possibly, a final moment. Back at the pier, Vivian makes an odd reference and Kate, piqued, makes a strange connection. Meanwhile, Nathan drinks too much off of his feelings for Melanie. He makes plans to hang out with Stephanie, but when he tries to find her, he runs into Melanie. Drunk, he begs her not to get married. While Vivian thinks her plan to off Melanie is perfect, Kate goes to Carly and asks her what’s the connection between her, Melanie, and Vivian. Carly questions Chloe about her infertility problem. Chloe indicates she has solved them. Later, with Father Matt, Chloe makes it clear her solution is to have faith. Father Matt insists God’s will is not always ours and Chloe is bummed until in a conversation with Stephanie realizes she has missed her period…she’s late!

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.
