While searching for one of Johnny’s toys at the lake, Sami bumps into Rafe and they share an unexpected moment. The love is there, but unfortunately it isn’t enough. Gabi interrupts and Sami leaves. Rafe tells Gabi that only a miracle could bring him and Sami back together. Nicole confronts EJ about kidnapping Sydney. He denies it until Nicole reveals the taped conversation. Furious, EJ destroys the tape, but Nicole informs him there are many more copies. EJ asks her what she wants in return, and Nicole says she has no price for her silence. Suddenly, Sami comes upon them. Will Nicole reveal the truth about EJ to Sami? Daniel questions Vivian about her involvement with Chloe and Carly. Vivian denies but wonders what the two women are keeping from Daniel. He tells her to stay away from Chloe, Carly and Melanie. Carly promises to stay silent if the baby that Chloe is carrying is Daniel’s. She explains that she owes Daniel so much, so she doesn’t want to bring chaos into his life if she can avoid it. They must do a paternity test. Melanie tells Philip that Chloe is pregnant. After he hides his panic, Philip goes to see Chloe. She says she doesn’t know who the father is. It’s all in Carly’s hands now. Philip promises that no matter the outcome, he’ll be there for Chloe. Meanwhile, Daniel meets with Carly and wonders why he was kept out of the loop about Vivian messing with Chloe. Carly covers the real reason behind Chloe and Vivian’s conversation. Daniel continues, saying that he’s excited about the baby on the way. Carly realizes that she could lose Daniel and Melanie if they found out she kept quiet about Chloe’s affair. Later, Daniel interrupts Philip and Chloe talking about their affair. Has Daniel overheard? To win favor with Victor, Vivian tries to convince Melanie that she and Philip should move back into the mansion. Melanie shuts her down, and Vivian warns her about Carly. Vivian feels something is going on between Carly and Chloe and prepares to learn more. Melanie invites Brady and Arianna to her picnic, hoping they’ll make up. They agree to talk and Melanie leaves to give them privacy. Just as they seem to reach a rapprochement, Arianna mentions Nicole and they end up further apart than ever.

With EJ present, Nicole tells Sami she wants to tell her the truth about him. Sami thinks it has to do with EJ defending Arianna and paying her bail. Before Nicole can deny, Sami gets a call. EJ privately tells Nicole that Sami will never believe her. When Nicole sees Will and Gabi enter, she gets an idea. She decides to reveal EJ’s guilt on air in front of Sami, Will and Gabi. Arianna shows up, not realizing she had been called in to work with Nicole. Brady also arrives and a triumphant Nicole goes on air, about to reveal all. Daniel asks Chloe and Philip what secret they’re keeping. Philip lies, saying that he and Chloe didn’t want to reveal that Melanie told Philip that Chloe was pregnant. He knows Chloe had asked Daniel to keep the news a secret. They didn’t want to get Melanie in trouble. After Philip leaves, Daniel is troubled by Philip convincing Chloe to lie and asks her to keep her distance from him. However, Chloe tells him Vivian set her up to think Daniel and Carly made love, and Philip was there for her during that time. Daniel realizes Philip has been a good friend. Chloe nearly tells Daniel she and Philip made love then changes her mind, realizing if she did, Daniel would leave her. Melanie asks Philip if they can move into their own home, possibly with a spare bedroom for a future child. Philip says they can, hiding his guilt and fear about potentially having impregnated Chloe. Before Nicole can broadcast live that EJ kidnapped Sydney, he interrupts, warning viewers that anything Nicole has to say is a lie. Nicole says she has proof and is just about to reveal it when the network preempts her. Sami leaves before Nicole can tell her what her story was. Nicole then decides to hold her scoop for the right audience. EJ warns her to keep quiet. EJ returns home to Sami to talk her into going on an extended vacation with him and the kids. Before Sami can answer, EJ gets a call from Arianna wondering what Nicole had up her sleeve. EJ asks Arianna what happened with Nicole after he left and where is she now? Downstairs, Sami answers the door, to Nicole. Dr. Baker calls Nicole to tell her not to rile her ex-husband. Later, Dr. Baker wonders when he’ll hear from Hope again. Brady tells Arianna that maybe Nicole knows him better than Arianna does. Adrienne confronts Hope about her recent actions involving Justin. Hope doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Adrienne thinks Hope is just plain nuts. When Justin sees Hope, he references their kiss and them getting closer, but she is still clueless. Adrienne tells Justin maybe Hope isn’t that into him. Justin thinks Adrienne is being jealous. Later, Justin tells Bo that he and Hope are taking their relationship to the next level. Carly comes home on this and questions Bo’s reaction. Bo reassures that he loves her. Later, Hope sees them kissing and she’s stung anew. Abe gets sleeping pills from his doctor and learns of the potential side effects for women. When Hope shows up for her refill, the doctor asks if she’s feeling okay. She reports that she’s fine, so he doesn’t tell her about the side effects. Later, Lexie discovers Abe is on sleeping pills. Nicole tries to tell Sami that EJ was behind Sydney’s kidnapping. Sami doesn’t want to hear anything Nicole has to say. EJ comes downstairs and throws Nicole out. Nicole, stymied, goes to Brady. She considers telling him the truth about EJ, but her fantasies show her that the conversation could either go very right… or very wrong. Later, Brady expresses his belief in Nicole, and asks her what she was going to say. What will she decide? Meanwhile, EJ presses Sami to go away with him that night, but she’s not ready. Later, EJ summons Marco to find Nicole and bring her to him – now. After coming upon Bo and Carly kissing in the middle of the hospital, Hope has it out with Carly. Bo subsequently talks to Hope privately. They hash out what went wrong in their marriage. Hope accuses Bo of moving on too soon, saying she would never think of doing the same before her marriage is officially over. Hope, deeply upset, goes home and takes a pill. When she wakes up, she has a friendly encounter outside the Brady Pub with a thrown Carly. Meanwhile, Adrienne and Justin have a scratchy encounter.

Adrienne crosses with Bo and winds up spilling that Justin and Hope kissed. Kate is alarmed when Chad begins fishing about Madeline’s past work history. She calls Madeline and warns her. Worried about who spilled the beans, Kate tracks down D.A. Woods and tests him about what he knows about his wife’s past. She quickly realizes he’s clueless. Meanwhile, Madeline tracks down Chad, who finally asks her point-blank if she was a hooker. Victor is pleased to know that Brady and Arianna have broken up. He is much less pleased to hear of Justin’s persistent intent to pursue a relationship with Hope.  Arianna sees that EJ is distracted. He hints he may have to leave town and doesn’t want her to think less of him. Arianna reminds him that he stood up for her when no one else did; therefore, she thinks the world of him. Meanwhile, Nicole struggles with telling Brady about EJ and her culpability in framing Arianna. She ends up kissing him instead. Brady responds, but tells Nicole he needs to take things slowly. Nicole understands and leaves with hope for a future with him. Later, Marco brings Nicole to EJ. She tells EJ she won’t reveal he was behind Sydney’s kidnapping, but she will make him pay. Meanwhile, Brady has an awkward cross with Arianna as they wish each other well. Stefano discovers Kate called Madeline, and she explains that Chad questioned her about his mother’s extracurricular activities while she was in school. Kate warned Madeline and is confident she has everything under control. Meanwhile, Chad keeps pressing Madeline about her past. Madeline stalls, but when Chad threatens to tell his dad, she admits the truth – she was a hooker. She explains she needed the money, and becomes angry that his contact with the DiMeras has dredged up her secrets. Chad wonders what other secrets Madeline is hiding. She denies, but he doesn’t believe her. Chad starts to leave, and Madeline attempts to follow him, but slips and tumbles down a flight of stairs. Bo and Adrienne discuss Hope’s seemingly hypocritical behavior. Meanwhile, Carly questions Hope’s friendliness. Hope insists she’s always admired Carly, especially for taking care of Lawrence. Hope says Carly will have a wonderful future. Shell-shocked, Carly discusses Hope with Bo, who’s determined to get to the bottom of her behavior. Hope meets with Dr. Baker, who demands to know what her plan is. Hope admits she’s going to kill Bo.

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.
