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’ Kate Mansi Delivers The ‘Power Performance Of The Week’

This week was a whirlwind for the character of Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) on Days of our Lives.  On Christmas Eve, she shows up at the annual Christmas Ornament hanging at the Hortons with her daughter, Charlotte in tow.  When she gets there, she has a few choice words for her mother, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves).

A hurt and angered Abby lets her mom have it for not believing in her sanity in a gut-wrenching moment played to perfection by Kate Mansi.  Coming in to the scene like a firecracker ready to explode, she let out the emotions of how her own family would not stand by her when she was being gas-lighted by Gabi (Camila Banus), and yet even with that, no one still believed her.  (She still had no hard evidence to proof that she was telling the truth, but that was just around the corner!)

In addition, Mansi was pretending to be “Gabby” with a Y, the alter that fell for Stefan (Tyler Christopher) in an effort to get her freedom, and she did it.  She hands the guy divorce papers as a Christmas present, throws off her wig, shocking him that he was the one being played.   She is not sick.  She is herself, Abigail and she is leaving him and taking their baby with her.

Later, when Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) remembers that she saw the DNA results proving that Chad (Billy Flynn) is the father of Charlotte, not Stefan, it is a triumphant moment for Abigail, yet a stinger, because she realizes the lengths her supposed “friend” Gabi went to for her revenge plot against her.  Eventually, Abby reunites Charlotte with her real bio-dad, Chad.  And for good measure, after the truth is finally out, and Abigail proves that she is of sound mind and body, she clocks Gabi for her deception right in front of Chad.

With the levels of emotion illustrating the character’s inner-strength, and the depth in her work, MFTV names Kate Mansi the last week of 2018’s, “Power Performance of the Week.”

Let us know what you thought of Kate’s performance, what was your favorite moment in it, and how the week unraveled for Abby, Gsbi, Stefan, Chad, Jennifer, and Julie in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Remembers & Delivers Christmas Bombshell: Chad Is The Father of Abigail’s Baby!

Ah, we were waiting for Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to come through and she did and in record soap time – glad her amnesiac bout was short-lived.  On the Christmas day episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, Julie and Abigail (Kate Mansi) have a chat at the Horton’s about Gabi (Camila Banus).  Feeling guilty she had Julie snoop around on Gabi, (which eventually led to her tumble down the stairs), Julie says they need to keep their eye on the bigger prize is doing a “victory dance” when they bring down Ms. Hernandez for making Abby look like she has been suffering from her mental illness (DID), yet again.

Stefan (Tyler Christopher) shows up at the Horton’s demanding to see his daughter, Charlotte.  Abigail is not happy about him just showing up unannounced, especially after she delivered a special Christmas present to him … divorce papers … and then revealed she had been playing him this whole time as Gabby with a “Y”, and had exited the DiMera mansion with baby in tow.  Abby brings Charlotte to Stefan, who lowers the boom on her saying he is taking the baby back home with him.  He pulls out custody papers that his lawyer had drawn up.  Hearing Abigail and Stefan argue, and Stefan professing, “That is my daughter”, etc, leads Julie to have a startling revelation!

Suddenly, Julie’s memory is sparked about her confrontation with Gabi and how she fell down the stairs, and finding the DNA results that Gabi was hiding that proved that Chad (Billy Flynn) was Charlotte’s father, not Stefan.  Julie drops the ornament she was holding in her hand and it breaks, when she remembers! She then tells a stunned Abby and Stefan that Chad is Charlotte’s biological father.  She continues to tell them how Gabi switched the paternity results and when she confronted Gabi about it, they had a struggle as Gabi was trying to rip the results out of Julie’s hands, thus causing her fall.

Stefan demands real proof, and so he and Abby  head to the hospital to find Kayla (Mary Beth Evans).  When they go into Kayla’s office,she tells them that she remembers now that Gabi was with her the day that she got the DNA results.  Thus, Gabi is looking more and more guilty by the second!  Kayla goes into the hospital database and sure enough, Chad is the father, not Stefan.  Mr. DiMera is in complete denial.

After the hospital Christmas party for the kids – and how funny was Leo (Greg Rikaart ) in his decked out Xmas outfit, and those lines of dialog remarked to the sick children – Chad and Gabi come home.  When Gabi goes upstairs to pack for their move, Abigail arrives with Charlotte.  She tells Chad that Charlotte is his bio-daughter.  Chad is speechless!  Meanwhile, Stefan is alone at Christmas in the mansion, and picks up the present he got for Charlotte, and then smashes it to the ground and begins to sob.

So, were you glad Julie’s memory came back pretty pronto?  Are you rooting for Chad and Abby to finally get back together? What should happen to Gabi now that her jig is almost up?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And for more with Susan Seaforth Hayes’ big week of story and her 50 years of Julie make sure to check out the latest episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast streaming now at NBC. com and on all major pod platforms.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
