After Rafe catches Sami and EJ on the pier with the ransom money, they finally reveal all they’ve been keeping from him. Sami freaks when Rafe calls in the FBI. Rafe orders Sami and EJ home and takes over. Sami tries to apologize to Rafe for lying. Rafe says to trust him, but when Sami learns he had someone watching her and that’s how he knew she was at the pier with EJ, she reprimands him for not trusting her. Meanwhile, EJ tries to reach Anna to warn her that the FBI is involved. Melanie overhears Bo and Carly talking about her. Carly almost tells Melanie she’s her mother, but covers. Melanie buys her story, but tells Carly to stay out of her life. Carly is a wreck with Bo as she realizes she can never be around her daughter. Later, she shows up at the hospital to handle a student nurse situation, and it ends up being Melanie. At the same time, Vivian tries to work Hope to fight for Bo and get Carly out of the way. Hope won’t do her dirty work. Vivian calls in Gus. Hope opens up to Maggie about her continued feelings for Bo. Maggie gets her to admit that she wants Bo back. Brady and Arianna make plans to see Melanie, but Arianna has to stay and talk with Roman. Melanie asks Brady to give her away at her wedding. Brady voices his concern about Melanie giving up her nursing career for marriage. Melanie decides to ask Daniel for a leave of absence and to freeze her credits. At the same time, Arianna learns from Roman that the higher-ups want to end the undercover operation and send her back to prison. She talks to them in a conference call and refers to Roman as his code name “Caesar” which Troy overhears. Arianna covers with Troy, but he sets a plan to meet with her later, with the intent to kill.

Philip asks Bo to be one of his groomsmen. Bo, aware Vivian is listening, lets Philip think he and Carly have sort of picked up where they left off in the past. Meanwhile, Melanie finds out she has to ask Carly’s permission to freeze her credits and course work until after her honeymoon. Carly remembers giving birth to Melanie, how horrible Lawrence was and how she had to give up Melanie to save the girl’s life. Melanie gets creeped out by Carly and runs off. Later, Melanie returns for her sweater, and tells Carly she’s going off on an extended honeymoon with Philip. Carly is horrified to hear that Melanie had a terrible childhood with Trent, and is glad both her parents are dead. After Melanie leaves, Carly has visions of Lawrence taunting her by saying he’s won. Vivian is determined to find out if Mia is Carly’s daughter. After hearing about Bo’s “affair” with Carly, however, she wonders if the daughter could be anywhere and the reason Carly killed Lawrence is for Bo. Vivian commends Philip for not inviting Carly to the wedding. Vivian thinks she and Melanie are going to be great friends. Also, Bo confides in Abe how he put this untruth in motion about his affair with Carly. Abe worries it’s only going to hurt Hope and Bo, regrettably, knows it. After a run-in with Vivian, Kate decides to step up her game in winning Melanie’s favor, but is blown off by her. Meanwhile, Maggie continues to deal with her loss. Melissa goes home and Kate comes by to check on Maggie. Unfortunately, she ends up trying to pry out of Maggie how to connect with Melanie. Maggie blows up and throws her out. While it felt good, she’s still very sad.

Stephanie presents Nathan with a press release announcing he’s the Intern of the Year. Nathan is touched and wishes his grandfather knew. Stephanie admits she told Mickey before he died. Grateful, Nathan and Stephanie grow closer as they share a kiss. Sami, Rafe and EJ tensely wait for the possible kidnapper to take the ransom money. When she does, the feds arrest her, and Sami, Rafe and EJ head to the police station to learn her identity. Rafe confirms the woman works near the pier, but has no police record or connection to Nicole. She isn’t the kidnapper. EJ informs Anna that all is proceeding as planned while Rafe and Sami receive a fax from the kidnappers stating they know she brought in the feds. She’ll never see Sydney again. Philip calls Carly on her intention to seduce Bo. Vivian tells Hope about it. Bo insists to Carly the lie is necessary to protect Melanie from Vivian. When Hope sees Bo is no longer wearing his wedding ring, she believes the lie. Devastated, Hope cries in Justin’s arms. He assures her he and his love will always be waiting for her. Gabi gets permission from her mother to go to the Olympics with Chad, T and Kinsey. Jealous, Mia tries to focus on Will. Later, at Grace’s grave, she admits that while wanting both Chad and Will is wrong, she can’t lose anyone else in her life. The faxed note from the kidnappers sends Sami and Rafe into a tailspin. Sami increasingly putting her faith in EJ to find their daughter. When Sami and Rafe go home, they have a blow-out fight and trade accusations. Sami blames Rafe for the fact that Sydney isn’t home and might never be. Meanwhile, EJ is relishing quiet time with Sydney. Anna is impatient to learn when she will get her money and wonders whether EJ is ever planning to give the baby back. EJ won’t tell.

Carly has a nightmarish fantasy of Vivian killing Melanie. She realizes how fortunate it is that Melanie is leaving town so Vivian will never discover that she’s her daughter. Victor lays into Carly when they cross paths at the hospital, and she is horrified when she learns that he and Vivian may be accompanying Philip and Melanie on their extended honeymoon. Reeling off this news, Carly enters the Java Café and finds Melanie and Vivian in the throes of bridal planning and having found the perfect wedding dress. Carly barges in and demands that Vivian get her hands off Melanie. Hope tells Justin she needs time, and he understands. As they talk, she realizes he still loves and misses his family as much as she does hers. She meets Julie for lunch and tells her that she just learned Bo has had feelings for Carly all this time. Julie doesn’t believe it and doesn’t think Hope should, either. Hope talks to Julie about Justin and says she hasn’t been fair to him when she knew her heart would only ever belong to one man. Julie urges Hope to go after what she really wants. Meanwhile, Julie gives Nathan and Stephanie some gentle encouragement on their relationship. While they are now officially “official,” they agree to hold off on telling Melanie and Philip they’re dating until after the wedding. Bo asks Daniel to keep an eye out for Carly. Daniel agrees and Bo warns that Vivian Alamain is a crafty character and a restraining order won’t stop her. Meanwhile, Carly questions Vivian’s true motives towards Melanie. Melanie and Vivian are thrown by Carly’s crazy accusations. Fed up with Vivian, Carly puts her on notice. Daniel shows up and sticks up for Carly. Vivian is amused and Daniel pulls Carly away, but not before accidentally ruining Melanie’s wedding dress with coffee. Later, Daniel tries to talk some sense into her, but she won’t completely open up to him.

Carly goes into Bo’s arms. She tells him she nearly slipped up, but her secret is safe for now. Little do they know, Vivian is twigged by Carly’s behavior and asks Gus to find out what they can about Melanie Layton. Bo runs into Philip, who apologizes for how he spoke of Carly. He hopes his brother will still be one of his groomsmen and Bo agrees. Later, Melanie goes home to Philip and he makes her feel better. Chloe tells Brady that Nicole wants info on Sydney. Brady doesn’t have any info, but thinks it’s best if he doesn’t talk to her. It’s only fair to Arianna. Chloe understands and Brady goes to meet Arianna. Philip comes home and he and Chloe talk about marriage and children. He wonders if Chloe and Daniel are going to have a house full which upsets her.

Arianna is supposed to meet up with Brady, but Troy stops by instead. He’s there under the ruse that he needs her to move some coke. It spills and Troy uses the opportunity to try to strangle Arianna. However, EJ arrives and saves the day. Arianna calls the police and EJ tells Troy to run. Later, Roman catches the guy. At the police station, Brady arrives and is upset he wasn’t there for Arianna. EJ is a bit nervous. Troy overhears Arianna use her code word “Caesar” and he outs her as a narc! Anna questions EJ’s plan, but he assures her that it has an endgame.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric Says Goodbye to Baby Jude

The Monday, May 27th of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, picked right back up for the emotional payoff of Nicole (Arianne Zucker) finally getting her biological son, Jude, back in her arms and learning it from Eric (Greg Vaughan).

As the episode began, Eric (with Jude in tow) is at the front door of the DiMera mansion. Eric recounts Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) confession. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) says she knew from the first time she held Jude that this was her child. She says a parent knows deep in their soul. Eric looks at her with tears in his eyes, as he thinks Jude is now EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) biological son. That’s a lie into itself and EJ is covering the truth of that along with Sloan.

Eric goes on to explain that Sloan even rigged the DNA results, telling the couple that they can check for themselves with a new DNA test, but this is their baby. Once inside the living room, Eric apologizes to Nicole for what Sloan put her though. Nicole says EJ was a victim too.  She turns to EJ and insists that Sloan be arrested. He tells her there is plenty of time for that. She reiterates, “That bitch stole my baby!” But, EJ is not about to do anything about it.

Eric vows he will make Sloan pay for all of her lies and deceit. Nicole asks Eric if he would like to hold Jude one more time before he leaves. Eric tells Jude he will love him more than he will ever know.

As tears stream down his face, he returns Jude to Nicole. She tells he can come over anytime to see the baby. Eric thinks it’s best for Jude to bond with his new family. Holly (Ashley Puzemis) comes in on all this and is filled-in on Jude’s “parentage.” Outside, Eric continues to falls apart.

However, after getting a call from Rafe (Galen Gering), they meet outside Eric’s apartment door. When they enter, the place is a torn up and there is no sign of Sloan. All that they find is a necklace, Eric gave her for Mother’s Day.Eric realized she took off, knowing she could be caught for her crimes. Meanwhile, back the DiMeras, an overcome Nicole is in tears that she actually has her baby back.

Now, what? Will EJ try to bond with Jude or not bond with Jude since he is knows Eric is the biological father? Will Sloan eventually get arrested? What did you think of the performance of Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker? Let us know via the comment section below. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s conversation with the Ari and Greg  from five months back where they talk about the baby switch storyline and more.

Days of our Lives Concludes Special Episode In Loving Memory of Bill Hayes

You needed the hankies for Wednesday’s February 21st episode of Days of our Lives in more ways then one. The highly-touted show featured newly created flashbacks of a young Tom (Zach Chyz) and Alice Horton (Sydney Kathrann Smith) eventually moving into to their dream house.

But as viewers saw in recent episodes, the Horton house was burned to the ground thanks to an unnamed arsonist. Today, marked the first time that Doug (the late Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) returned to see the ashes of the home they all lived in at one time or another and where they all share so many memories with the Horton family.

In addition, Leo (Greg Rikaart) decides to do a story for the Spectator on the Horton family and visited the rubble, where Julie recited the family history and the ups and downs, and yes, some of the zany plots the Horton children and grandchildren found themselves in over the years.

There was also use of flashbacks where characters such as: Julie, Marlena (Deidre Hall), Maggie, and perhaps most touching, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), recalled times with Tom (the late MacDonald Carey) and Alice (the late Frances Reid). Knowing that Bill Hayes has left us, and then preparing ourselves for which will soon be the airing of his last episode, made this all the more emotional.

And, at the conclusion of the episode, and after the final flashback of young Tom and Alice Horton, Days of our Lives paid tribute to Bill Hayes and dedicated the episode to him. A title card came up that expressed: “In loving memory” of Bill Hayes with the touching words from Hamlet, “Good night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”

Meanwhile. on the Hayes’ Instagram account, Susan Seaforth Hayes shared behind-the-scenes photos from today’s episode accompanied by her words, “Thank you for loving this lovable cast. We all, fans and actors, are a family! Onward to stories about us, eh?”

So, what did you think about today’s episode of Days of our Lives being dedicated and in honor of Bill Hayes? What did you think about the flashbacks from the past and the newly created ones as part of the story? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jada Reveals Everett Is Her Ex-Husband Bobby Stein

On Monday’s February 19th episode of Days of our Lives, viewers are getting closer to the root of the story of Everett Lynch (Blake Berris).  There has been speculation for months as to just how the talented Blake Berris’ new character would be … a good guy, or a bad guy. But, what if he is actually both?

In story, Jada (Elia Cantu) and Rafe (Galen Gering) are at the Brady Pub and she comes upon on Everett with Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and freaks out. She reveals that Everett is her ex-husband Bobby Stein! Everett denies even knowing Jada and thinks she is mentally unstable or something. Jada even shows him a photo of her with him (sans his beard) from her phone. Everett throws it off as everyone in the world has a doppelgänger.

Jada accuses Everett of gaslighting her. She goes into the back-story of when she discovered he cheated on her, and she served him with divorce papers, but he turned into a “ghost.” Everett stands by his claim that the two of them were never married.

Stephanie flashes back to Everett revealing he had retrograde amnesia when he initially came out of his coma citing maybe that’s the reason he doesn’t remember Jada.  Next, Jada goes off on him saying she can tell by the look in his eyes, he knows exactly who she is.  Jada warns Stephanie to not get ‘sandbagged’ by this guy any longer. She then threatens Everett that he will be found out and get what he deserves. Next, she torms out of the pub as Rafe follows her.

Alone with Everett, Stephanie becomes upset having a few more startling realizations. First she asks Everett, “Are you really not Bobby Stein?” He admits to having gaps in his memory, but not years of relationships or marrying someone.

Then, in another flashback, Stephanie remembers Everett telling her he bought an engagement ring before his accident. Then, Stephanie recalls a conversation with Jada how she found a large credit card charge from a jewelry store and that Bobby hadn’t bought anything for her in several months.

Stephanie is shocked, and tells Everett if Jada is telling the truth, and he’s really Bobby Stein, than she’s actually the other woman!  Next, Stephanie decides to leave, while Everett says this makes no sense, and they should talk about.

So, what do you think of this story … that it appears Bobby Stein is also Everett Lynch? What do you think will eventually be revealed? Comment below.
