At the party for Sydney’s birthday and Johnny’s homecoming, Sami and Nicole continue their uneasy truce. Sami learns about Nicole’s electronic tracking device and asks if she really wants to marry a man who doesn’t trust her. Back at the mansion, EJ is grateful to Nicole for her alliance and thanks her by finally taking off her tracking bracelet. The moment grows intimate and EJ winds up kissing her. Down in the basement, Rafe gets dizzy and passes out. Stefano revives him. Rafe wonders why DiMera is going through so much trouble to keep him alive. Back at the loft, Sami starts to get frisky with imposter Rafe. They begin to make love. Meanwhile, Gabi confides to Will that she’s bothered that her brother isn’t acting quite like himself. Bo is released from custody. Hope is surprised to learn that Bo and Carly have broken up and that Carly has moved out of the house. Justin works on Hope’s case and is cautiously optimistic. Later, Bo arranges for Ciara to visit, and the family shares an emotional reunion. At the hospital, Carly reveals to Jennifer that she’s no longer with Bo. Both women realize they are at a crossroads in their lives, and they vow to help each other through their difficult time. EJ and Nicole make love. Meanwhile, Sami and imposter Rafe similarly get “reacquainted.” Later, imposter Rafe confidentially calls EJ and thinks he has passed the test with flying colors. Unbeknownst to him, Sami feels there’s something still not right with “Rafe.” Meanwhile, Stefano threatens the real Rafe. Taylor bonds with Theo and Lexie. Taylor rebuffs Lexie’s suggestion that she stay in town and see Nicole again. However, after giving it more thought, she shows up once again at Nicole’s door. Jennifer thanks Daniel for saving her life, and their friendship continues to grow. Chloe tries her best to get Daniel alone to talk. After he shuts her down, she finally realizes she has lost him forever and falls into a deeper depression. Meanwhile, Kate tries to convince Melanie to take Parker away from Chloe and raise him with Philip. At the same time, Philip demands Maggie let him see Melanie, but he becomes sidetracked when he holds his son. Later, Melanie is completely open with Philip about what she thinks, but her mind is not made up. Philip confronts Kate on what she’s up to, and Melanie confronts Chloe. Chloe’s issues about Parker become clearer, but she remains at sea. Kate wants Philip to use Parker to reconnect with Melanie. Philip thinks his mother needs to stay out of his relationship and leave Chloe alone. Kate disagrees and Philip says she doesn’t have a choice. At the same time, Melanie and Chloe spar. Melanie comes to the conclusion that Kate is right – Chloe is not capable of taking care of Parker. Later, Melanie calls Kate and tells her she’s “in.” At the same time, Philip finds Chloe and promises to support her and Parker.

Stefano wants complete cooperation from Rafe, or Allie Horton will disappear from Salem forever. Furious Rafe can’t believe Stefano would hurt the little girl. Stefano explains he won’t harm Allie, but he’ll send her off to live with another family and Sami will never see her daughter again. He won’t have to do this as long as Rafe follows orders. Later, EJ visits and Rafe wants to know what his game is. EJ thinks it would be easier to show him than tell, and Rafe comes face-to-face with his doppelganger. Imposter Rafe assures EJ that Sami wasn’t aware she wasn’t making love to her husband. Meanwhile, Sami calls Carrie and confides that something was off. Imposter Rafe overhears and manages to cover his “change” nicely. Taylor visits Nicole and gives her her money back. Taylor wishes they could start over, but Nicole says it isn’t a good time. Taylor goes to the Brady Pub where she runs into Sami. Sami tells Taylor she doesn’t have to listen to Nicole. If she wants to stay in town, she should. Meanwhile, Nicole looks at the framed photo of herself and Taylor as kids. She goes to the Brady Pub, where she sees Sami has her fangs in her sister. She tells her to butt out. Sami balks and suggests Nicole be a better sister and ask Taylor to be a bridesmaid. A recovering Jennifer is desperate for info on Hope’s status. Daniel warns she cannot tax herself. She must take it easy. Nathan and Jennifer talk about his situation and his renewed fight for Melanie. Later, after Nathan goes, Jennifer gets out of bed and collapses. Daniel takes her back and gives her a sedative. Jennifer, under the effect of the sedative, says that she wishes Jack was more like Daniel. Chad gets a job and Kate learns he’s going by his new last name – DiMera. Rafe is in awe and stares at his imposter. EJ tells Rafe that they had to make the switch sooner than planned to take advantage of Rafe’s accident. Rafe guesses that EJ and Stefano are keeping him alive in order to fill in the blanks of his life for his replacement. Rafe maintains the plan still won’t work because Sami will never believe the replacement is him. Smug, EJ says she already does and shows him video of Sami and imposter Rafe kissing at Sydney’s party. Nicole tells Taylor she can stay in Salem if she promises to stay away from Sami. Taylor decides she’s better off leaving. After she goes, Sami tells Nicole she chased away the best thing that ever happened to her; someone who wants nothing from her except to be part of a family. Defensive Nicole thinks Sami is the last person to be giving her advice, and they start to get into it when imposter Rafe interrupts. He’s great with both of them, but when Nicole leaves and Sami isn’t looking, he instinctively checks out Nicole. Brady runs into Taylor, and tells her Nicole needs her. He convinces her to stay in Salem.

Victor tells Kate that Titan bought a company without his knowledge or approval. He thinks Vivian found a loophole to the papers she signed which gave control back to him. He tries to track her down. Kate gives him back her keys to the mansion. She says she and Stefano have reconciled and she’s moving back permanently with him. Victor thinks Kate is being unwise, given that she continues to keep secrets from him. He is convinced she’ll be back. Brady overhears Victor screaming at his lawyers about Vivian’s loophole. Brady reveals that he tricked Vivian into signing control of Titan over to him – he now owns the company. Furious Victor feels Brady has betrayed him and the family. Vivian realizes that Kate is moving back into the DiMera mansion. She warns Stefano that Kate is dangerous, and will always keep secrets from him just as Vivian is sure Stefano is keeping secrets from Kate. While Vivian denies she wants to be the next Mrs. Stefano DiMera, she does insist she could be Stefano’s friend. Kate walks in on this, and is furious. Vivian goes and Stefano assures Kate she has nothing to worry about. As long as he and Kate are honest with one another, they’ll be fine. Stefano fears EJ is falling in love with Nicole. EJ denies it and makes it sound more like he’s settling. Stefano wonders if it’s enough. EJ isn’t interested in love. He says he’s happy with the life he’ll have with Nicole and the children. In the meantime, Nicole tells Chloe she thinks she and EJ might have a chance at falling in love again. Nicole goes home to EJ and they make love. After EJ leaves, Stefano tells Nicole there’s something she needs to know about her husband-to-be. At the pier, EJ bumps into Taylor, and the sparks fly. Chloe is stricken when Nicole asks her to be her maid-of-honor. She tries hard to be happy for Nicole and keep her act together. After Nicole leaves, Chloe bakes cookies and is interrupted when she gets a call from the pharmacy about Parker’s medication. Not wanting to disturb Parker, Chloe decides to leave him by himself while she picks up the meds. However, she forgets that she has left the oven on with the cookies inside. Parker is alone in his baby basket when smoke starts seeping from the oven. Hope prepares for her hearing. She and Bo fear the judge will send her back to prison. Bo goes to Victor for help in getting Hope out. Victor refuses because he knows Hope wouldn’t want that. Bo has to fight for Hope’s freedom himself. He tells Hope the impassioned plea he plans to make before the judge. After the hearing, Justin gives Bo and Hope the good news – she won’t be going back to prison. Bo and Hope are overjoyed, and after Justin leaves, Bo finally tells Hope he loves her and he wants her to come home with him.  Abe and Lexie are delighted by Taylor’s connection with Theo.

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.

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.
