At the hospital, EJ takes imposter Rafe to task for beating up the real Rafe. EJ quickly reminds him who is calling the shots. Nicole comes in on their fight and they cover. Johnny receives his prosthetic eye. EJ notes the bond between his son and his twin sister, Allie. Meanwhile, Stefano and imposter Rafe plot to kidnap Allie as punishment for the real Rafe’s escape attempt. They are thwarted when EJ allows Johnny to go home with Sami. At the loft, Allie is leery of the imposter. He comes up with a new plan to make her disappear. He suggests that Allie go with him to the park, just the two of them… EJ tries to get Stefano to call off his threat on the girl. Stefano refuses and in private, EJ strongly urges Kate to call Lucas and have him send for Allie – immediately. Kate presses him as to why, but that’s all EJ will say. Kate puts in a call to Lucas. Taylor and EJ have another near miss at the hospital. Nicole wants EJ to join her and Taylor for lunch so they can finally meet. EJ declines, but later decides to join them after all. Chloe confesses to Philip that she left Parker alone at Maggie’s with the oven on. Philip is alarmed and makes her come with him to the hospital where Daniel checks her out and thinks she has post-partum depression. Chloe finally accepts that it’s over for her and Daniel. Philip tells Melanie what Chloe did and makes her promise not to tell anyone – Chloe could have her baby taken away. Melanie immediately informs Kate. Chloe overhears Melanie on the phone saying Chloe shouldn’t be allowed to raise Parker. Chloe flips out and argues with Melanie. Philip enters on this and wonders what’s going on Sami convinces Allie to go to the park with imposter Rafe. Imposter Rafe makes plans for Allie to be taken away, but Sami interrupts before they leave and says Lucas called. He wants Allie to visit him in Hong Kong and her wants her to leave that night. Allie is desperate to go and tells Sami that Rafe was mean to her again. Sami doesn’t believe that but agrees to let her visit her dad. Imposter Rafe fills in Stefano, who wonders if Sami is suspicious of him. Imposter Rafe says no but if that changes, he’ll take care of her. The real Rafe collapses and Stefano tells EJ he wants to move up the timetable for getting rid of him. EJ disagrees – he thinks Rafe is still useful. Stefano reluctantly backs down but says if the situation is ever out of control again… Rafe will be gone. Rafe starts to get better, determined to escape. Taylor, thinking of EJ, spills coffee on herself and heads to the restroom just as EJ arrives at the Brady Pub. He sits down with Nicole, but is soon called away by Stefano. Taylor returns, just missing her mystery man. Nicole hopes the two of them will hit it off when they finally meet at the wedding. After talking to Johnny and Will, Chad tells EJ he’ll be his best man at the wedding.

Chloe tells Philip she overheard Melanie telling someone that she’s not fit to raise Parker. Melanie says Chloe is lying, and Philip believes Melanie. Distraught, Chloe runs off and tries to tell Nicole but she’s distracted with wedding plans. A rattled Chloe says she can’t be in the wedding. Meanwhile, Melanie tells Kate that Chloe is taking postpartum pills. Pleased, Kate is ready to take their plan to the next step and subtly convinces Chloe to throw out her postpartum medication. Vivian finds out Brady stole Titan from Victor. She’s thrilled and forces Brady to tell Philip. Philip is furious with Brady for betraying Victor. Vivian lords it over Victor, knowing his own flesh and blood has hurt and betrayed him more than she ever could. It’s EJ and Nicole’s wedding day. EJ wakes from a dream about Taylor. Meanwhile, Nicole confesses to Taylor that she’s truly falling in love with EJ. Taylor and EJ separately talk to Lexie about their mysterious encounter with a stranger. Stefano is pleased to have his sons together as Chad fulfills his best man role. The wedding begins and as bridesmaid Taylor walks down the aisle, she and EJ are shocked as each realizes who the other is. The wedding comes to a halt. Stefano continues to torment Rafe. While Stefano attends the wedding, Rafe feigns illness and steals his guard’s cell phone. Chloe feels the effects of not using her medication. Kate is satisfied that her plan to drive Chloe closer to the edge is working. Chloe breaks with reality, writes a note and heads to the pier with Parker. An utterly destroyed Chloe stares into the freezing river. Meanwhile, Philip is shocked to find her “good-bye” note. Bo and Hope try to have a “first date.” After a series of interruptions, they watch a movie with Ciara and declare the day a success. EJ and Taylor manage to cover their surprise and explain to everyone that they have already met. The marriage goes ahead, but as EJ kisses his bride Nicole, his eyes are on her sister, Taylor.

Rafe uses the stolen cell phone to get in touch with Roman. He frantically tries to ask for help but is quickly caught and subdued. After the call ends, Roman is puzzled, but even more so when he bumps into imposter Rafe acting rather nonchalant. Imposter Rafe is able to cover, but he demands a meeting with Stefano and tells him that he needs to handle Rafe. The man will never give up trying to get back to Sami – unless he’s dead. Chloe throws herself into the river, but Philip realizes what is going on and saves her. Philip rushes her to the hospital. He begins to understand that his mother might have something to do with Chloe’s erratic behavior. Jennifer and Daniel grow closer. Jennifer helps him realize how Parker can still be in his life. With the wedding ceremony concluded, Nicole and EJ receive congratulations from friends and family. EJ and Taylor do their best to avoid one another. Nicole slightly notices the awkwardness between the two of them but before she can get any answers, she’s interrupted. EJ finally tells Taylor they need to talk and she wonders what he feels for her. Nicole sees their intense moment. Abe warns Chad to stay away from the DiMeras. After sharing a warm moment with Johnny and Theo, Chad tells Abe he’s a DiMera. Melanie learns Chloe tried to commit suicide. She wants to take Parker away from her immediately and is angry that Philip is protective of Chloe. They fight. Melanie calls Kate who races to hospital. Chloe is starting to feel better. She confides in Philip that she got rid of the pills because of something Kate said. Furious, Philip confronts Kate, believing her responsible for Chloe’s suicide attempt. Melanie is also horrified with unrepentant Kate. Meanwhile, Chloe worries to Philip that, because of her actions, she may have lost Parker forever. Roman tells Bo and Hope that Bo’s been reinstated as Police Commissioner, but Hope will never be able to rejoin the force. Hope puts on a good face, and insists she’s fine being a stay-at-home mom. But once she’s alone, her doubts become evident.

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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
