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’ 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?
