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.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

DAYS’ Olivia Rose Keegan Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Although she is exiting the show on-screen next week on Days of our Lives, Olivia Rose Keegan (Claire) got the opportunity to go out in a blaze of glory (those damn lighters!).

If you caught this past Tuesday’s installment of the NBC daytime drama series, Claire finally became entrapped and completely unhinged, after being set-up by Tripp (Lucas Adams) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal); where everyone learned she was the responsible party for the notorious cabin fire and was about to attempt to set her rival, Ciara, on fire in a cabin, yet again, after taking off with her.

In the process, Tripp was held with a knife to his throat by Claire, and eventually hit his head trying to get away from her knocking him unconscious.  The perfect opportunity for Claire to make her getaway with Ciara.

Once at the Cabin, Claire pours gas all around as Ciara begs her to stop, while she is chained to the bed.  Claire then flicks the lighter.  To the rescue come Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Marlena (Deidre Hall); who have tracked down where the young women are.  Ciara calls out to Ben, who breaks down the cabin door.

Just then, Claire holds out the lighter with the flame ready to start another fire.  Knowing she is caught, Claire starts to explain how she lost her mind in all of this.  Ben tries to talk her down and to please put the lighter away, as does Hope.  As a desperate mother, Hope begs Claire to let Ciara live, and tells Claire that she knows she really doesn’t want to do this.  Hope tells her that she knows that Claire loves them both.   As Ben rescues Ciara, Claire closes the lighter as Marlena holds her.  As the others get out of harm’s way, Marlena says she has got this … and now it’s Claire and Marlena alone and inside the cabin together.

But then, wanting to end her own life, Claire picks up the lighter and flicks it open.  She tells Marlena she can’t go back and says, “It’s better if she dies.”  Claire thinks she’s a monster and certifiable … and is as criminal as what Ben Weston has done in his past.  Reassuring her and talking her down, Marlena promises Claire that with help, she can turn her life around as Ben has done.

Claire breaks down as Marlena holds her.  Next, Marlena is able to get her out of the cabin, away from setting herself on fire, and on her way to the hospital for observation, until it can be figured out what’s next for the troubled young woman.  As they leave the scene, Claire sobs uncontrollably knowing she is a damaged soul, has lost her way, and realizing the harm she has done to other people.

In all of these scenes, Keegan brought the angst, the mental instability, and the realization of Claire’s horrific motivations to life, in a dramatic, and not over-the-top way, even in the most melodramatic of soapy circumstances.  For those reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Olivia’s work are Power Performance of the Week.

Knowing those scenes were part of her final days of shooting on DAYS, Keegan told Soap Opera Digest in an interview (in their latest issue on newsstands now), “Obviously, it was sad to shoot.  And it was emotionally demanding and bittersweet, because Victoria Konefal and I are best friends.”

So, what did you think of Olivia’s performance in the key scenes? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Unmasked! The Part Of Nicole Walker Is Now Being Played By Kristen DiMera

On Friday, NBC’s Days of our Lives delivered quite the cliffhanger as fans go into the Memorial Day Weekend.  There had been plenty of speculation that something just wasn’t quite right with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) since her “return from the dead” to Salem.  Leave it to head writer, Ron Carlivati to come up with an exciting twist …  and he did!

As it turns out, that isn’t Nicole after all, but Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wearing a very convincing Nicole mask and weaving her plot while under wraps; chief among those plots is to nab Brady (Eric Martsolf) as her man; once and for all.

In story, at the Salem Inn, “Nicole” kisses Brady.  At first he responds, but then backs off, until “Nicole” yelps, “Damn it, Brady! Why are you fighting me on this? Just forget about Holly.”  Brady is stunned! “Nicole” says she wants to escape the pain of losing her daughter, but Brady leaves and “Nicole” smashes a vase.

Later at the Inn, Xander (Paul Telfer) hands over Holly’s hospital records.  Meanwhile, “Nicole” tells her accomplice all about the memorial service and how devastated Eric (Greg Vaughn ) was, and how bad she wants to be with Brady.  Admitting Brady currently rejected her, she says it’s only a matter of time before he gives in to her seductions.

Next, we see “Nicole” ripping a mask from her face, just as Xander announces that Nicole is being played by “Kristen DiMera” and smirks.  Meanwhile, Kristen emerges from under the mask, free at last as her wig comes off as she lets down her hair.   Thus, the pieces all are starting to fit together.
