Bo wonders about Hope’s mental health and talks it over with Roman, who offers his advice. Later, Bo goes to see Ciara, who shocks him by telling him that she saw Hope hugging a strange man. Meanwhile, Hope makes it clear to Dr. Baker she is going to kill Bo, that night. Dr. Baker makes a declaration of love and we wonder if he changed Hope’s mind. Hope goes to the house, and comes face-to-face with Bo. Nathan and Stephanie grow closer. Even Melanie’s interruption cannot stop them from considering moving in together. Chloe almost makes a huge slip up in front of Daniel, but covers. Later, Philip meets with her. They discuss their situation and Chloe admits to Philip that Father Matt knows about him. He is ready to blow up, but she reassures him that Father Matt is out of town and would never spill her secret. Later, Philip goes home to Melanie, who’s still shaken off of her encounter with Nathan and Stephanie. She tells him she wants to throw Chloe a baby shower, and he overacts. He covers and tells her not to rush into things. They share a passionate kiss. Daniel sees Father Matt and learns that Chloe’s annulment issues aren’t why he won’t perform their marriage ceremony. He returns home and confronts Chloe. She claims she has changed her mind about having Father Matt marry them, and Daniel, completely confused, tells her he doesn’t believe her story. Chad is horrified when Madeline falls down at the pier. She is rushed to the hospital where Chad, deeply upset, hopes his mom pulls through. Kate and Stefano are shocked to find out Chad’s mother is in the hospital. Woods shows up and asks Chad what happened, but he is a mess and can’t answer clearly. Later, to the horror of all, Lexie tells Chad his mother, Madeline, is dead. Hope comes face-to-face with Bo. He is thrown to see her, and she quickly explains she stopped by to pick up something for Ciara. Bo buys this, but he thinks something is different with her. Hope balks, hoping to get out, but Bo says it’s her appearance and she’s putting out a different vibe. Hope tries to avoid, but Bo mentions how she’s been acting strangely. Hope loses it. She’s trying to rebuild her life. Bo understands, but if something is going on, he’s there for her. Affected, Hope opens up a bit, but when Bo receives a call from Carly, she gets back on track. Bo sees they have time to talk and Hope suggests he make coffee. She dumps the rest of her sleeping pills in his coffee. Bo returns and raises his cup. Will he drink it? Daniel tells Chloe her annulment with Lucas has been resolved. Father Matt told Daniel to ask Chloe why he can’t marry them. Chloe blurts Father Matt thinks she’s a bad person. Daniel doesn’t understand. Chloe covers, and says she’s been confiding in Father Matt and he feels she’s not ready to walk down the aisle. Angry, Daniel wants to talk to Father Matt. Chloe thrusts the phone at him and tells him to go ahead, but Daniel declines. Chloe calms down and they make love. Later, he says Father Matt is only one priest. They can get someone else to marry them. Chloe, wanting to know the paternity of her baby before she marries Daniel, says no. Upset, Daniel walks out. Chad feels guilty for his mom’s death. Lexie says it’s not his fault. Madeline also suffered from a brain aneurysm. If she hadn’t have fallen, she would have died eventually. D.A. Woods is cold to his son, but Stefano reaches out. Chad pushes everyone away, but Kate manages to talk to him. Later, Kate urges him to talk to his father. Chad says he was never really a father. He leaves and Kate mutters that she knows the reason why. Stephanie and Nathan plan to move in together. Nathan claims that he and Melanie are history.

Unaware, Bo sips from his drugged coffee as he and Hope try to understand where their marriage went wrong. The emotional moment turns bitter when Hope realizes Bo refuses to take sole responsibility. Hope reveals her dark side, but Bo passes out before he can react. She goes to Dr. Baker, who has the rest of the items on her list. He’s upset that she plans to set fire to her house with Bo in it. He is unable to dissuade her and Hope leaves, and returns to the house. She pours gasoline on Bo, and says one final goodbye as she lights a match. Sami tells Rafe she’s permanently moving in with EJ, hoping to reconnect with him as a couple. Rafe hides his devastation, and asks if EJ makes her happy. Sami avoids, about to tell Rafe she still loves him, when they’re interrupted. Later, feeling that Rafe has moved on with his life, Sami decides to keep quiet about her feelings and leaves. With Johnny at the DiMera mansion, a resolved Sami says she’s home. Rafe, meanwhile, believes he and Sami aren’t through yet. Nicole worries that Brady is still in love with Arianna. He denies, but won’t stop looking for the proof of her innocence. He wants to bring the real perpetrator to justice. Nicole covers her fear that Brady will discover her culpability and wonders if they can ever have a future as long as he is fighting for Arianna. Brady says when he proves Arianna’s innocence, they will. Arianna fires EJ as her lawyer. She knows he’s distracted by other things in his life and doesn’t want to be a burden to him. EJ insists she’s not, and wants to prove her innocent of the muggings. Arianna sees a loving EJ with Johnny and gives in. She tells him she trusts him with her life. She runs into Brady, and asks if they can find a way not to be awkward with one another. Brady agrees, but resists when she warns him about Nicole. Meanwhile, Nicole goes to EJ and tells him that she wants him to prove Arianna’s innocence immediately, as long as he doesn’t reveal she framed Arianna. EJ has no choice but to agree. Nicole is amazed that she and EJ could ever come to a truce, unaware Rafe has overheard this last part.

Hope is about to torch Bo when Daniel shows up looking for Carly. Hope hides as Daniel enters and finds Bo unconscious. Daniel realizes Bo is soaked in gasoline and tries to revive him. Hope pulls her gun but is thwarted by approaching sirens. Roman arrives with the paramedics on a call from an anonymous tipster. Hope hears, and realizes it must have been Dr. Baker. She slips out undetected while Bo is rushed to the hospital. Hope confronts Dr. Baker. He claims he tipped off the cops out of love for her. Hope is worried Bo will survive and remember what she did to him. She dashes to the hospital to finish him off. To Carly’s relief, Daniel manages to save Bo. When Hope overhears that Bo is still unconscious, she slips into his room. Roman shows up to tell Daniel and Carly that along with the gasoline, incendiary devices were found spread around the house. It looks like someone was trying to burn down the house – with Bo in it. At the same time, Hope hovers over Bo, ready to take his life. Rafe listens in on EJ and Nicole discussing their secret truce. He doesn’t find out what it is, and wonders if he should bother. He goes to the DiMera mansion despite himself, and finds Sami there. He tells her about EJ and Nicole’s conversation. Sami accuses him of being jealous. Both get angry and Rafe storms out. Rafe goes to the Brady Pub for a drink, and sees Nicole. He decides to investigate her, and leaves to snoop around her place. Meanwhile, Sami has doubts regarding EJ after Rafe’s visit and probes about his conversation with Nicole. EJ comes right out with it, appearing honest as he tells her Nicole was trying to make up with him. Sami tells EJ she’s starting to trust him more and more and wants to stay at the mansion with him. Chloe goes to the hospital looking for Daniel after their fight and runs into Carly, who is trying to set up a paternity test for the next week. Chloe is surprised to see how upset Carly is after hearing about Chloe and Daniel fighting. Chloe admits she understands Carly’s point of view. The women bond slightly over their mutual goal of wanting Daniel to be happy. Chloe seeks out Father Matt, tells him she’s pregnant and Philip may be the father. Father Matt says he won’t lie for her, but won’t seek out Daniel to tell the truth. Instead he urges Chloe to do that and will pray for her. Alone, Chloe thinks she may have nothing to lose. Telling the truth may be her only answer.

While Roman and Abe speculate on the identity of Bo’s assailant, Hope makes one last attempt to kill him. She is foiled when Bo opens his eyes, and then Carly enters the room. Hope escapes and goes home, convinced she’s about to be implicated, and tearfully apologizes to Ciara for failing to protect her. Meanwhile, Bo’s condition deteriorates, and it appears he won’t make it. Daniel’s quick thinking saves his life, and later, Bo urgently tries to tell Carly something. Rafe tricks Nicole into leaving her apartment by calling in with a fake tip. Once she leaves, he breaks in. He searches for info to shed light on the secret she and EJ share. Nicole realizes she’s been tricked and phones EJ, accusing him of being behind it. Meanwhile, Rafe finds Nicole’s coded diary. He escapes in the nick of time when she returns home. Nicole briefly suspects someone has been in her apartment, but reassures herself that she’s paranoid. Meanwhile, Rafe works on cracking the code. Sami and EJ draw closer than ever. Victor pays Maggie a late-night visit to discuss Mickey’s trust. Maggie gently tries to tell him that these late-night talks can’t continue. Later, Victor gets a call about Bo’s injury, and he and Maggie rush out together. Vivian does her best to interfere in Victor and Maggie’s relationship. Rebuffed, she tells Gus that Maggie is beginning to get on her last nerve.

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?
