Stefano acts confident despite the fact that the police holding Rafe2 could send him away for life. Is it because sexy Sofia in Rafe2’s cell is someone he planted? In a surprising twist, however, the woman actually works for Bo and Hope and is hoping that by dangling an offer to go with her to Colombia, Rafe2 will finally open up and say what he knows about the DiMeras. Rafe2 is tempted, but resists. One final push from Bo, however is all it takes for him to give in and declare he’s ready to make a deal. Bo and Hope anticipate the DiMeras’ demise. Jennifer is doing her best to keep her distance from Daniel but he doesn’t make it any easier when he’s a complete mensch with her. He promises he won’t pressure her and make her feel awkward about them. Vivian is hot on Carly’s trail, curious to know what is bothering her enough to make her potentially turn to drugs. She gets a thread of what she’s looking for when she sees Carly get agitated when discussing Jennifer with Daniel. Needing the other piece to the puzzle, Vivian goes to Jennifer and overhears her confess to Abigail that if she’s ever alone with Daniel, she may not be able to resist him, but she must for Carly’s sake. Vivian finally has some ammunition she can use against her enemy. Chloe is about to make a deal for a nice apartment, which will reassure Social Services that she can provide a good home for Parker. She gets an advance from Quinn to make the down payment, thus assuring continued employment with him as one of his “girls.” At the same time, she knows she’ll need some legitimate income to cover all the cash she makes from Quinn. Meanwhile, Kate realizes Quinn will be no help at all in exposing Chloe’s new gig, so she takes matters into her own hands. Learning that Chloe is booking herself into a venue in nearby Brookville, Kate senses an opportunity.  At the pub, Sonny connects with Abigail, Kinsey and “T.” He does “T” a favor by getting him some baseball tickets. They decide to go to the game together. Sonny and Abigail leave. Later, “T” goes online and learns that Sonny is gay when someone posts a comment on his and Sonny’s picture. “T” is furious, believing Sonny was hitting on him and now everyone thinks he’s gay.

Word of Rafe2’s impending plea deal hits Salem. Stefano panics and tries to flee town but is stopped by the police. Meanwhile, Abe tells Taylor and Nicole that Rafe2 is going to walk in exchange for implicating EJ and Stefano. A furious Taylor goes to the station to try to stop the deal, wanting justice for her mother. Nicole is upset, and Brady thinks she still has feelings for EJ. However, Nicole makes it clear that the man she truly cares for is Brady. Meanwhile, the police escort EJ and Stefano to the police station. EJ crosses with Taylor, who is determined that Rafe2 should not go free. EJ wants to know why Taylor is really there. Dario learns the truth about his brother’s imposter. Sami meets Rafe’s former FBI partner, the lovely Sofia. Sofia reports that she has had success in coercing Rafe2 to confess. Sami and Rafe are relieved as they learn that he is about to implicate Stefano and EJ, who have been arrested. The plea bargain hits a minor snag. Finally, Rafe2 strikes his bargain. Unbeknownst to Bo and Hope, he’s been placed in a cell with a man the real Rafe once arrested. Bo and Hope go down to take the imposter’s statement and are shocked to find him dead!

At the police station, Bo and Hope confirm that Rafe2 is dead. Stefano demands he and EJ be released. Sami thought the nightmare was over and that her kids are safe from EJ. She goes apoplectic when she hears EJ and Stefano got out of it once again. Rafe tries to do damage control, but worries Sami might do something drastic. He makes her promise to go home while he helps Bo and Hope. Rafe questions the imposter’s cellmates and learns one of them was a perp that he arrested. He realizes the guy killed Rafe2, thinking he was taking out the real one. When Rafe goes home, Sami isn’t there. Sami, in the meantime, has gone to confront EJ. When she sees his law books, she thinks he’s going to try to take the kids from her. He shocks her by revealing he’s giving up custody rights. The kids will now be hers and Rafe’s. Vivian plots to get Daniel and Jennifer in a room alone together, hoping to reunite them and drive Carly over the edge. When she learns Carly has dinner plans with Daniel, she turns it to her advantage. Gus feigns illness, delaying Carly, while Vivian sets up Jennifer to go to the club where Daniel is meeting Carly. When Daniel and Jennifer are there alone, they almost give in to their feelings. Then Jennifer thinks Daniel set her up. Daniel is insulted she’d think that. Jennifer finally admits she does want to be with him. They kiss – and Carly walks in on it.  Abigail tries to comfort Chad, who thinks his dad and brother are going to prison. He learns from D.A. Woods that Stefano and EJ walked. Woods goes off on Chad, saying he expects to be prosecuting him someday along with his sleaze ball family. Abigail and Chad wish they could escape their problems and just be alone somewhere. They kiss on the pier.

Rafe comes to EJ looking for Sami. He learns EJ has given up his kids to her. Rafe doesn’t believe him, until Stefano comes home and is furious to hear what EJ has done. Rafe leaves to have Justin check the custody document. Stefano thinks EJ is doing this to impress Taylor. EJ doesn’t think that’s possible, however, and says he’s doing it because it’s best for the children. Stefano doesn’t agree and threatens to have his own lawyers overturn it. Stefano goes. EJ is seized with head pain and collapses. Rafe reunites with Gabi, then goes home and calms Allie from a nightmare. Allie asks about EJ getting out of jail. She thought Rafe said he would get what he deserves. Rafe thinks he has. Devastated Carly runs out before Daniel and Jennifer realize she saw them kissing. Vivian witnesses and calls Quinn to bring his drug dealer Phelps along and meet her at the pier. Vivian thanks Quinn for his help. Quinn leaves and Carly shows up. She turns Phelps down for drugs. Phelps “drops” the drugs on the pier. Carly is about to go, then sees the baggie with the pills. She takes it home. Vivian watches and feels victorious. She gives Quinn the good news and offers to help him start a legitimate business. Quinn thanks her, but turns her down. Meanwhile, Jennifer accidentally lets it slip to Daniel that she thinks Carly has feelings for him. She makes him promise not to say anything. Quinn sees Chloe with Justin, telling him she got the concert gig. Chloe runs into Kinsey and thanks her for suggesting the concert. Kate overhears and tries to buy out the nightclub. The owner refuses. Kate comes up with another idea.

Quinn runs into Chloe at the Brady Pub and meets Kinsey. Kinsey thinks he’s hot and goes. Chloe tells him if her club date works out and she gets more gigs, she won’t have to work for him to get Parker back, if he’s willing to let her out of the life. Quinn remains enigmatic. At the same time, Kate meets with Randy, one of Chloe’s johns, and makes him an offer to out Chloe as a hooker at her concert.

Nicole comes to the mansion and happens upon EJ, who’s writhing in pain. She initially withholds medical help but finds him surprisingly contrite. After he reveals he gave up the kids and admits his regrets, she is ultimately moved to take him to the hospital. Lexie diagnoses her brother with a delayed effect of his head injury, and EJ starts to have more flashes to the night of the beating. Lexie thinks he might remember all, if he makes it. Taylor learns that EJ is in serious condition. Lexie fears he’s given up hope. Taylor debates whether to visit him. Meanwhile, Melanie tends to unconscious EJ, and he remembers that she was there the night he was assaulted.  After witnessing the growing closeness between Melanie and Dario, Brady offers Dario a job at Titan. Taylor suspects Brady has ulterior motives and wonders whether he has feelings for Melanie. Brady admits to being a bit at loose ends, and we see the start of a spark between him and Taylor. Later, Nicole warns Brady that EJ is starting to remember.

Daniel remembers his promise to Jennifer and decides not to confront Carly about her feelings for him. Meanwhile, Carly manages to stop herself from taking the drugs but can’t quite bring herself to dispose of them permanently. Just as she is feeling more in control, she runs into Daniel at the hospital. Carly learns that he and Jennifer are not back together, but then she learns that Daniel is aware of her feelings for him. She continues to deny, and a relieved Daniel makes clear that his feelings for Carly are only platonic. He wants to be with Jennifer. Jennifer talks to Maggie, who is surprised to learn of her breakup with Daniel and talks to her about her unresolved feelings for Jack. Later, Jennifer talks to Adrienne, who wonders why she’s going to such lengths to be unhappy. Jennifer breaks down in tears.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will and Sonny Call It Quits

On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Chandler Massey (Will) once again delivered heart-breaking scenes as the love story of WilSon took a dramatic turn.

After Sonny is summoned to the prison to see Will, the two have an emotional conversation, in which Will tells Sonny he knows that he kissed Evan (Brock Kelly) thanks to Kate (Lauren Koslow(.  Sonny assured Will that the he is not with Evan, but Will says, “Not yet.”

Courtesy/NBC

Will goes on to say that what he did by taking the life of Sonny’s mom, and Justin’s (Wally Kurth) wife has put Sonny in an untenable situation and their marriage.  While Sonny calls it a tragic accident, Will will not allow Sonny to live his life with the ball and chain around him which is now an incarcerated Will, who will serve a prison term for what seems like years.

Knowing Sonny’s animosity towards Will, as much as he protests he doesn’t have it, Will asks for a divorce as tears well-up in Sonny’s eyes. Will mentions Justin’s recent prison visit and how they ran into each other.  Sonny tells Will just what Justin told him, that he is like a son to him. But Will feels so much guilt for taking the woman Justin loved away from him, and Sonny’s beloved mother, Adrienne.

Then, Sonny asks if this is really about Evan.  Will says he  is just a catalyst as he wants Sonny to be happy with Evan, or whoever else he wants to be with in the future.  Will says he loves his husband so much that he wants him to find happiness again, and he knows he won’t if he is tethered to him.  Will tells Sonny he knows his daughter is in good hands with him and Gabi (Camila Banus) and he needs to honor Sonny for all that he had meant to him by loving him by setting him free.

The two men come to the harsh realization by finally admitting to one another that this was a long time coming.  With tears streaming down his face, Sonny says to Will, that when Will asked him to stop visiting him in prison, he knew their marriage was over, but neither could muster up the  courage to end it.

In the end, they both say how sorry they are, and say goodbye as Will is taken by the prison guard back to his cell as Sonny ls left devastated.

Freddie and Chandler reminded us all of why WilSon has been a continuing power couple on DAYS with their performances.  Now the question is; can Sonny and Will work their way back to each other, or is this the final straw in their lengthy relationship?
