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’ 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?
