EJ and Taylor have an electric first meeting. They are clearly smitten with each other, but they part ways before discovering each other’s identity. After a talk with Stefano, Nicole has a change of heart about asking Taylor to be in the wedding. Taylor happily agrees. Meanwhile, Sami asks “Rafe” to buy Allie’s favorite cookies. Having no clue what they are, imposter Rafe alerts EJ, who goes to the real Rafe for the answer. Hoping to tip off Sami, Rafe gives EJ the truth – but not the whole truth. When imposter Rafe arrives home with the wrong cookies, Allie is confused and upset. The duped imposter reacts with fury. Melanie and Kate clarify the terms of their arrangement. Melanie breaks it off with Nathan for good. He reacts by kissing her passionately, but she pushes him away and runs out. Meanwhile, Chloe manages to get home in time to turn off the smoking oven and save Parker from harm. Philip drops by, and Chloe covers her mistake. Philip and Maggie promise to take care of Chloe, having no idea of how unhinged she is becoming. Meanwhile, Kate plots to drive Chloe over the edge, equally unaware as to how close she already is. Bo and Hope talk about the hard work it will take to put their marriage back together. After much discussion, they decide they’re willing to start over. They head home together, ready to be a family once again. When Sami questions imposter Rafe about getting Allie the wrong cookies, he blows up at her and storms out. The imposter tells EJ that Rafe gave them wrong information. EJ is furious and confronts Rafe. Meanwhile, Sami talks to Kayla, who tells her niece to be patient with Rafe’s recovery. Sami goes home to the imposter, who romances her with her favorite things. The imposter calls Marco and arranges for Rafe to hear him seducing Sami. Rafe freaks and grabs Marco through the bars and knocks him out. He grabs the keys and begins his escape.

Nicole gets closer to EJ, unaware he’s smitten with a stranger, who happens to be her sister, Taylor. Taylor turns down a job offer from Brady, saying she wouldn’t want to get in bed with corrupt people. Maggie learns about Brady betraying Victor. Brady insists he was doing a good thing as far as Victor and Maggie’s relationship is concerned, but she tells him what he’s done is awful. Brady leaves and Maggie goes to Victor. She keeps her distance, however, when she realizes Victor doesn’t want to see anyone. A saddened Victor tells a picture of Isabella it’s his fault Brady turned out the way he did. Caroline gets probation but has to continue wearing her monitoring device. Kayla realizes Stephanie is going to be okay and leaves town to rejoin Steve in Africa. Bo brings Hope home, where Ciara, Doug and Julie greet them. The entire family shares a Valentine’s Day dinner. Later, Hope explains to Doug and Julie that she and Bo are committed to working things out but cannot just sweep their problems under the rug. Doug and Julie have a suggestion for Hope… Later, Hope holds out her hand and introduces herself to Bo, indicating a fresh start for the couple.

Marco informs EJ of Rafe’s escape. EJ thinks he knows where their prisoner has gone. Meanwhile, an injured Rafe slowly makes his way to Sami, who is celebrating Valentine’s Day with the imposter. Sami and “Rafe” start to make love just as the real Rafe appears outside the loft. EJ offers Nicole an engagement ring, even though his mind is on Taylor. At the same time, Taylor has a fantasy about EJ. She drops by the mansion to show Nicole her bridesmaid dress and just misses seeing EJ. Taylor rhapsodizes with Nicole about the wonderful mystery man she met on the pier. She hopes she’ll see him again someday.

Kate and Stefano have Valentine’s dinner at Chez Rouge. They see Chad applying for a job. Stefano tries to reconnect with his son and schedules a time for them to meet. Gabi and Will, on their first real date, see Chad and invite him to join them. Chad declines and goes. Alone in the forest, Chad finds a torn picture of Allie that Rafe has accidentally dropped. Back at Chez Rouge, Gabi tells Will how Rafe has been distant since his accident. Will makes her feel better, and they share a sweet Valentine’s kiss. Melanie resets her plan with Kate to take Parker away from Chloe and raise him with Philip. Melanie goes to see Philip and tells him she wants to give their relationship another chance. Philip is thrilled, though privately, Melanie is conflicted. Rafe is agonized as he spies Sami and the imposter on the verge of making love. Before he can alert Sami of his presence, one of EJ’s men knocks Rafe out. Sami and the imposter hear a noise in the hall, and the imposter sees Rafe getting dragged away. The imposter claims to Sami that he didn’t see anything. Later, EJ summons him to discuss Rafe’s escape. Rafe is locked back up in the basement and grows ill. Meanwhile, Sami’s nosey neighbor, Gladys, comes by and wonders why she saw Sami’s husband being dragged down the hall. Nicole plays the role of moll wife to perfection, and EJ is grateful for her loving care of Johnny. Meanwhile, Taylor meets with Maggie to apply for a job at Chez Rouge. She fantasizes about EJ. Elsewhere, Victor and Brady have a nasty argument about Titan. Brady goes to Chez Rouge and gets drunk. Taylor finds him and takes him home. Earlier, Maggie advises Victor to be there for Brady. He later goes to Chez Rouge to thank her and finds her alone at a table for two, toasting to her and Mickey’s anniversary. Gabi and Will realize that Chad is using the DiMera name, and they back down on their judgment of his wanting a relationship with his dad. Chad shows Will the torn picture he found of Allie.

Sami is confused when her neighbor, Gladys, insists she saw Rafe being dragged down the hall. Gladys refuses to back down from her claim even after imposter Rafe arrives and seems completely fine. It looks like the building’s security cameras will expose the truth until Sami learns they’re broken. Later, Gabi and Will show up with Allie’s torn picture and a spooked Sami wants to have it run for prints. The imposter says he will take care of the situation, and Will and Gabi go. A relieved Gabi thinks her brother is acting more like himself. When “Rafe” and Sami go to bed, he slips out and pays the real Rafe a visit, nearly beating him to death. EJ shows up and vows that Rafe will never get away again… and now little Allie must pay for Rafe’s defiance. Meanwhile, Sami has a nightmare about Allie being in danger. EJ stops by Lexie’s office, after checking on details concerning Johnny’s surgery. She urges him to extend an olive branch to Chad. EJ is wary, but later when he runs into Chad, he comes around and asks his newly-found half-brother to be his best man. Elsewhere, Will wonders who would tear the photo of Allie, and Gabi tries to suggest maybe it was a friend of hers. Will offers support to Chad regarding being a DiMera. Gabi thanks Will for being such a good guy and gives him a kiss. Carly is checking on Jennifer when Daniel shows up. Jennifer sees how compatible the two of them are – and puts on her matchmaker hat. Later, she confides in Lexie. Lexie says Carly may or may not be the one for Daniel, but tells Jennifer she’s certain he will find the right woman. Jennifer arranges for Carly and Daniel to meet up at Chez Rouge. Once there, Carly and Daniel realize Jennifer sent them there under false pretenses. They share a drink and toast to Jennifer.

Days Of Our Lives

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

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.
