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’ 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?
