Jane consults with Stefano and decides it’s time to kill Bo. Unfortunately, her police accomplice is unable to do her dirty work, so she must do it herself. Jane returns to the hideout to finish off Bo, but is shocked to discover he’s gone! Hope surprises a sleeping Nathan and grills him about his connection to the prison. Nathan is beyond shocked as he explains the mix-up between his phone and Ben’s. Hope realizes Nathan is not involved; Ben is. Nathan follows Hope’s wishes and gets a message to Jennifer, who’s had some bonding time with Carly. Jennifer meets Hope at the boat and promises to help. Later, Jennifer crosses with Ben and realizes he has a key to the infirmary. She formulates a plan. Brady rescues Vivian and Gus from their island “vacation” after getting her to sign paperwork. Victor shows Maggie the rescue in progress, and she agrees to let him make dinner plans.

Philip talks to Kate about Parker. Chloe is more convinced than ever that Parker is the key to Daniel’s heart. She is upset when she finds Carly at Daniel’s apartment and even more upset when she meets with Philip, who wants to change Parker’s name. Meanwhile, Victor offers Melanie his support. Later, Nathan goes to Melanie and tells her he wants to be with her regardless of the fact that she’s carrying Philip’s baby. Emotional, Melanie explains she isn’t ready, and asks Nathan to leave. EJ sends Nicole to pick up Sydney from Sami. Stefano tells EJ that their plan to remove Rafe from Sami and his children’s lives can move forward. Meanwhile, Rafe bonds with Johnny and tells Daniel he’s wary about EJ’s change of heart. Nicole tells EJ that Sami is late with Sydney. EJ is cool with it and even lets Rafe be with Johnny, knowing well this will be one of the last times.

Hope tells Leo about sending Jennifer off to find the connection between Ben and Jane. Hope remains concerned that she has put so many of her loved ones in danger. Meanwhile, Jane believes that Bo has escaped, but he’s trapped behind the door of the hideout. He jumps Jane and insists on knowing what she’s up to. Jane stalls for time and Bo comes face-to-face with the state investigator on her payroll. They chain up Bo, and plan to kill him that night by making it look like he was fleeing arrest. Jennifer, meanwhile, faces obstacles as she tries to get Ben’s key to the prison infirmary. She, Ben and Daniel go to the Brady Pub. Jennifer and Daniel bond while Ben is on the phone. Daniel inadvertently makes Jennifer realize that helping Hope is more important than betraying Ben. When Ben comes back, she deliberately hugs him and her hand goes to his pocket and pulls out his keys.

Victor sets up a “safe” brunch for Maggie, instead of dinner, to make her feel comfortable. Vivian’s return with Brady interrupts their warm moment. Maggie leaves and Vivian tells Victor she’s divorcing him and leaving town for a while. She regrets the time wasted on him. She goes to Maggie and says Victor will soon be free. Maggie can no longer hide behind Victor’s marriage to keep him at arm’s length. Maggie is unsettled. Victor thanks Brady for getting Vivian to sign over control of Titan. He’s a chip off the old block. However, alone Brady says more than Victor knows. Sami is thrilled to be getting shared custody of the kids with EJ. Rafe admits he was wary, but the custody papers all seem in order. Sami and Rafe start to make love, but Sydney interrupts. Sami has a moment alone with Sydney and tells her how things are all finally working out for them. Nicole questions EJ about the noise from the basement. EJ doesn’t confide in her but says it’s almost time for the signing of the custody papers. Nicole thinks Sami isn’t going to like all the terms. When Sami and Rafe meet with EJ, she is ready to sign until Nicole comes in. Sami is stunned to learn that EJ is still marrying Nicole, and he stipulates in a new addendum that Nicole has rights to the kids if anything happens to him. Sami explodes and almost comes to blows with Nicole. Rafe tries to talk her down because he believes it’s the best deal they’re going to get. Furious, Sami refuses to sign and storms out. Philip finds Chloe out drinking alone and wonders where their son is. Chloe says Parker is with Maggie. They exchange words over changing Parker’s name. Philip thinks Chloe isn’t herself. Maggie shows up with Parker, and reveals that Chloe was supposed to pick him up over an hour ago. Philip takes Parker out for a walk as Chloe admits to Maggie that her life is falling apart and how hard it is to take care of the baby. Maggie, alarmed, insists that Chloe and Parker stay with her for the night. Kate brings Melanie a gift for her soon-to-be grandchild. Melanie tells Kate to forget about her and Philip getting back together. Kate plays on Melanie’s past of growing up without her father and tells her she must put her child first. Then she introduces the idea of Melanie and Philip raising Parker as well, as brother to their child. Melanie says she’s not interested, and Chloe wouldn’t give up Parker anyway. However, Kate’s wheels are turning.

Jennifer steals Ben’s prison infirmary key, and breaks in to find files on the dead inmates. Jane and Lee almost catch her, but she manages to take photos of the files and slip out. Later, Jennifer looks at the files and realizes she needs a doctor to decode them. She eyes Ben when he returns to the Brady Pub looking for his keys. Jennifer plays innocent and Ben finds his keychain, but she keeps the infirmary key. A mysterious woman makes plans to come to Salem while looking at pictures of Nicole. Sami has rejected EJ’s offer and Rafe tries to do damage control. Sami goes to Justin for legal advice and realizes she’s got no real legs to stand on. EJ admits he didn’t handle the presentation of Nicole’s role in the childrens’ lives very well. He offers to call Sami, but Rafe thinks he needs to talk to her alone. Rafe goes home and pretty much tells Sami this is the way it has to be. At home, Nicole and EJ celebrate. EJ tells Nicole she’s a part of his family. Back at the loft, Sami storms out on Rafe. She gets in her car and drives. Rafe follows and gets in an accident when a deer jumps into his path. Chloe makes a desperate attempt to get Daniel back by bringing Parker to the hospital and lying that he is sick. Daniel, Maggie and Victor all realize something is wrong with Chloe. Chad asks Adrienne for a job but is turned down for the time being. Lexie talks to him about what it’s like being a DiMera. After his talk with Sami, Justin visits Adrienne at the Cheatin’ Heart, and they reconnect… which culminates in the two of them making love! An injured Rafe is rushed to the hospital and Sami begs for him not to leave her. At the same time, EJ and Nicole inform Stefano of Sami’s outrage about the custody agreement. Stefano receives word that Rafe was in a terrible accident and worries this could unhinge his and EJ’s plan. Nicole overhears but EJ covers. They all leave for the hospital. EJ and Nicole find a guilt-ridden Sami, who agrees to sign the custody papers. Stefano peppers Ben with questions about Rafe’s physical condition. After a bit of worry and grief, Ben informs everyone that Rafe will recover – though it’s too soon to tell if he will have brain damage. Stefano realizes the accident will play nicely into his and EJ’s plans. Bo tries to get the upper hand with the crooked state investigator, but in his current state, he is no match for his guard. At the same time, Hope has a close call with a cop. Elsewhere, Jennifer enlists Carly’s help in decoding the medical files. The photos are too blurry so Jennifer takes Carly to the infirmary. After browsing the original files, Carly realizes the warden is killing inmates for organs. Jane and Lee come in as Carly and Jennifer hide. They overhear the plan to execute Bo, and after Jane and Lee leave, Jennifer and Carly split up to warn all. Jennifer calls Hope about Bo, then Lee discovers her and tells her the jig is up. Ben calls in a request for a heart, and Lee says she just might have one as she looks to Jennifer! Meanwhile, Carly and Hope arrive in the forest just as the state investigator is about to shoot Bo! Victor tells Kate about Chloe’s latest stunt. Kate thinks it’s wonderful; it’ll make it easier to steal Parker away from her. Victor doesn’t want to upset Philip or Daniel, so he chooses not to involve himself in Kate’s campaign against Chloe. He thinks they should let things play out. Kate can’t believe Victor won’t help her. Daniel tells Melanie about what Chloe tried at the hospital. He asks her to be for there for Parker no matter what happens and she agrees. Meanwhile, Chloe continues to wallow in depression and Maggie tries to comfort her. She calls for Daniel’s help and he rushes right over. Chloe is overjoyed that Daniel has come back to her, but is upset when she realizes he’s there for a different reason. Daniel gets real with Chloe, who realizes she lost everything. At the same time, Kate moves in on Melanie and tries to enlist her help.

Thank you.

The Justin and Adrienne stuff was the best part this week. I hope we get more of them.

I also love how Justin is the only one that can control Sami and tell how things are when she goes off the handle. I love seeing Justin in lawyer mode. Need to see more of that. 🙂

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Unmasked! The Part Of Nicole Walker Is Now Being Played By Kristen DiMera

On Friday, NBC’s Days of our Lives delivered quite the cliffhanger as fans go into the Memorial Day Weekend.  There had been plenty of speculation that something just wasn’t quite right with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) since her “return from the dead” to Salem.  Leave it to head writer, Ron Carlivati to come up with an exciting twist …  and he did!

As it turns out, that isn’t Nicole after all, but Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wearing a very convincing Nicole mask and weaving her plot while under wraps; chief among those plots is to nab Brady (Eric Martsolf) as her man; once and for all.

In story, at the Salem Inn, “Nicole” kisses Brady.  At first he responds, but then backs off, until “Nicole” yelps, “Damn it, Brady! Why are you fighting me on this? Just forget about Holly.”  Brady is stunned! “Nicole” says she wants to escape the pain of losing her daughter, but Brady leaves and “Nicole” smashes a vase.

Later at the Inn, Xander (Paul Telfer) hands over Holly’s hospital records.  Meanwhile, “Nicole” tells her accomplice all about the memorial service and how devastated Eric (Greg Vaughn ) was, and how bad she wants to be with Brady.  Admitting Brady currently rejected her, she says it’s only a matter of time before he gives in to her seductions.

Next, we see “Nicole” ripping a mask from her face, just as Xander announces that Nicole is being played by “Kristen DiMera” and smirks.  Meanwhile, Kristen emerges from under the mask, free at last as her wig comes off as she lets down her hair.   Thus, the pieces all are starting to fit together.

Kudos to Arianne Zucker for playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole, and we can’t wait to see Stacy Haiduk as the conniving Kristen as this story unfolds.

Watch a promo for next week’s DAYS below.  Then let us know, what you thought of the twist: that Kristen is pretending to be Nicole, via the comment section below..

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will Learns He Has A Brain Tumor; What Next For WilSon?

On Days of our Lives, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) have been through the wringer.  Just like any power couple in “soapdom” they are constantly pulled apart by circumstances that drives distance between them, or prevents them from being happily reunited.  But then, isn’t that was soaps are all about … or, do these boys deserve a bit of peace and quiet?

On Wednesday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama series, Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) drop the bomb on WilSon.  Sadly, Will has a small brain tumor, although believed to be benign, it is is in a section of his frontal lobe that makes it most likely inoperable.

Will asks if that explains his headaches and why he has been passing out, and Rex confirms that is the cause.  He also says the tumor is likely benign, because the larger ones are usually cancerous.  The next step is to do a biopsy.  Rex advises Will to not exercise, drive, work, and to avoid stress right now.

Later at the Kiriakis mansion, Will Google’s brain tumor’s on the internet and is emotionally overcome with what it says.  In tears and looking very sad, Sonny comes on to the scene to comfort Will, but Sonny is looking concerned himself, trying to put on a brave front for Will.  Then, Sonny and Will admit they are frightened for what’s ahead, but Sonny says they must try to stay positive.  Will cries.

These scenes were nicely played by Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith, who always bring it in their scenes.

Look for more drama ahead for the duo and their on-screen families as Will deals with this new health crisis.

So, what does Will’s tumor mean for the future of WilSon?  What do you think will happen next? Are you upset that Will has this diagnosis? Do you want the duo to finally have some down time from all the drama, especially after getting Leo Stark (Greg Rikart) out of their lives?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
