At the wedding reception, EJ lies and tells Taylor he hasn’t been thinking about her the way she’s thought of him. Nicole asks EJ, then Taylor, what’s going on between them. Both tell her she has misunderstood. Nicole wonders if EJ is Taylor’s mystery man, which her sister denies. Nicole then assumes Taylor is uneasy because she hates EJ for being a DiMera and hurting Nicole in the past.  In private, Lexie gets EJ to admit Taylor is the woman he was trying to track down. However, he states it doesn’t matter because Taylor could never be interested in a man like him. EJ takes Nicole home to start their wedding night. Meanwhile, Lexie asks Taylor about her feelings for EJ. Taylor kind of confirms what EJ said about her not being interested in a DiMera. At home, EJ pulls back from making love to Nicole, and she asks him what’s going on. Sami notices more slight changes in Rafe2 and confides in Caroline. She confesses she feels responsible because she caused his accident. In the meantime, the imposter tells Stefano that they don’t need the real Rafe anymore – he has it all under control. If Sami causes any trouble, “Rafe” will take care of her. Later, an emotional Stephanie arrives at the pub and encounters the imposter, who finds her incredibly attractive. He encourages her to open up to him, and he gives her a tight “supportive” hug, which perplexed Sami witnesses. Social Services shows up to take custody of Parker from Chloe. Philip can’t get custody because Daniel is still the father of record and it can’t be corrected until the next day. Jennifer urges Daniel to take Parker for the night. He’s not sure he can handle it emotionally, but she promises to help and he finally agrees. Maggie comes to see Chloe and insists things will get better. Philip overhears Kate and Melanie conspiring. He blasts Melanie for betraying his trust, and she runs out in tears. Philip lets his mother have it for manipulating Melanie as well as Chloe. Kate is hurt that he always takes someone else’s side over that of his own mother. Meanwhile, Stephanie learns from Nathan that things haven’t worked out for him and Melanie. Stephanie isn’t exactly sympathetic. After she leaves, Melanie rushes in and takes comfort in Nathan’s arms. Melanie spills her part in the Chloe plot, but Nathan doesn’t blame her. Philip arrives to apologize to Melanie and gets into it with Nathan. Melanie tries to stop them from fighting and suddenly doubles over in pain.

Despite his feelings for Taylor, EJ makes love to Nicole on their wedding night. Afterwards, Nicole hints that she is sort of in love with him. She’s relieved Sami is no longer an issue for them, and EJ agrees – he does not love Samantha anymore… Nicole believes the right people ended up together. Thinking of Taylor, EJ privately isn’t so sure. At Chez Rouge, Brady finds a glum Taylor. He realizes Nicole’s wedding to EJ went through and can tell Taylor doesn’t necessarily approve. Brady orders a drink and Taylor warns him not to get drunk – she doesn’t want to drag him home again. Later, Brady again offers her a job at Titan, but warns the DiMeras will not be happy about Nicole’s sister working for the enemy. Taylor doesn’t quite accept, but she and Brady toast to new possibilities. Kate and Daniel get into an argument. He rails at her for playing mind games with Chloe. Daniel hopes Philip doesn’t let Kate near Parker or Melanie’s baby. Meanwhile, Nathan and Philip are concerned when Melanie experiences severe cramps. They rush her to the hospital, where Daniel orders some tests. Nathan pledges his support for Melanie – as does Philip. Kate tries to be there for Philip, but he rebuffs her. Later, Melanie loses her baby. Sami catches “Rafe” hugging Stephanie inappropriately and lays into him. Rafe2 swears he was just comforting her. Stephanie later admits to her cousin that she was a bit uncomfortable. Later, Sami sees “Rafe” and Stefano having a friendly chat – and she realizes she must do something about her husband’s personality change. She calls Stephanie and asks if she’ll help her make an appointment at the hospital.

Stefano and EJ continue to disagree about whether Rafe has outlived his usefulness. Stefano fills Rafe in on his plan to erase his memories and ultimately vows to proceed without EJ’s approval. Meanwhile, EJ is displeased that the imposter has not yet succeeded in alienating Johnny – his son still adores “Rafe.” In the aftermath of her miscarriage, Melanie extends an olive branch to Chloe. Meanwhile, Nathan and Philip argue about Melanie. Maggie urges Nathan to proceed slowly with Melanie, but he is determined to win her back. Later, Melanie tells Philip she forgives him, and they begin to discuss their future. Daniel is pained when his name is removed from Parker’s birth certificate, and Philip’s is added. Abigail surprises Jennifer with her homecoming. She expresses her anger with Jack and her support of her mother. Later, Abigail is surprised to witness Jennifer and Daniel’s embrace. Hope is at loose ends now that Bo has gone back to work, and she spends time with Jennifer and Julie. Rafe2 is furious that Sami has scheduled an MRI for him behind his back. He calls EJ, who tells him to take the test – the results can be fixed. However, Sami privately convinces Daniel to supervise the MRI. EJ learns about this just as Daniel reports to Sami and the imposter that the tests indicate “Rafe” was never in an accident at all!

Melanie tells Philip she still loves him and forgives him for his indiscretion with Chloe. Philip is hopeful, insisting they can start over – anywhere in the world. But Melanie brings him back to earth when she reminds him he can’t leave Parker. She lowers the boom and says their love is not enough to hold their marriage together. Her heart breaking, she insists Philip leave. Philip goes to Parker and tells him he loves him. Meanwhile, Julie advises Nathan to fight for Melanie. Nathan tracks Melanie down at the pub, ready to declare his love. Abigail walks in on Jennifer hugging Daniel. When she learns Daniel was the doctor who saved her mom’s life, she also hugs him. Daniel leaves. Jennifer explains she was comforting Daniel, and wonders how Abigail really felt about what she saw. Abigail insists she’s fine with it; she wants her mom to move on. Jack doesn’t deserve her. Jennifer says that no matter what Abigail thinks of her dad, he still loves her and her brother very much. Abigail is hit despite herself. At the Java Cafe, Chad bonds with EJ and Johnny, admitting it’s his birthday. They celebrate with him. When EJ gets the call about “Rafe’s” MRI, he asks Chad to look after Johnny and leaves. Abigail runs into Chad and is at first attracted to him – until she mistakenly thinks Johnny is his kid. Chad refuses to set her straight, and both he and Johnny agree they don’t like her. Will gives Gabi a beautiful pair of earrings to indicate the seriousness of their relationship. As they kiss, they are unaware that someone is watching them.

At the hospital, EJ watches as Sami’s suspicions about Rafe2 grow. In private, the imposter tells EJ that things are harder than he thought with Sami – he needs to know more about their past from the real Rafe. EJ calls Stefano to make sure he does not give Rafe the mind-erasing drug. Unfortunately, he’s too late – Stefano has already injected the real Rafe with the drug! Meanwhile, Daniel suggests ways in which Sami can try to help “Rafe” be the man he used to be. At home, Sami asks “Rafe” to make love to her – the way he used to. Meanwhile, the real Rafe awakens and asks Stefano who he is – but is he faking? Taylor reluctantly visits Nicole and has mixed feelings that her wedding night went so well. Taylor reveals that Brady offered her a job again. Nicole is supportive; she wants her sister to be as happy as she is. Later, Nicole goes to get dressed for the day, and Taylor decides to leave before EJ arrives – only to come face-to-face with him. While Brady is supportive of Chloe, Victor appears to lay down the law with Philip, insisting Chloe come nowhere near Parker. Victor is stunned when Brady brings Chloe home and announces she’ll be living at the mansion. Brady and Philip join forces, and Victor finally allows Chloe to stay. Philip reunites a grateful Chloe with Parker. Meanwhile, Victor makes it clear he ultimately accepts Philip’s actions and can handle Chloe – but Brady is dead to him. And he plans to find a way to destroy his grandson. Nathan makes a declaration of love to Melanie – but is it too fast and too soon? Stephanie interrupts and learns about the miscarriage. She feels badly, but sees that everything is now wide open for Nathan to reconnect with Melanie. Later, when Melanie feels faint and Nathan picks her up in his arms, it appears as if exactly that is happening.

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.
