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 Of Our Lives

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny and Will Say Their Final Goodbyes and Leave Salem

Not a happy day for fans of Days of our Lives’ WilSon.  Although it has been known now for over seven months that Daytime Emmy-winners, Chandler Massey (Will) and Freddie Smith (Sonny) were let-go from the long-running NBC soap opera, it still was hard to watch them have their final scenes on Tuesday’s episode.

As was in the dialogue, the writers and the show left the door open for a Sonny and Will return down the line when Sonny uttered: “Goodbye Salem, for now.” And, as is with most DAYS characters, they seem to somehow return at one time or another.  But still, it looks like the soap has made the decision to rest the characters.

Before their final exit, Sonny and Will had a visit with Sami (Alison Sweeney) to tell her they are moving to Arizona. Sami is up to her eyeballs in trouble with the custody hearing for Allie’s baby versus Nicole (Arianne Zucker).  Will tells his mother he wants her blessing before they go, and that he already received a blessing from Marlena (Deidre Hall).

An emotional Sami tells Will how sorry she is for all the things she has done, and the mistakes she had made when she was younger and along the way that impacted him.  In tears, Will says he is going to miss her, and the two of then share a hug,

After Sami leaves to head to the custody hearing, Will and Sonny look at Allie’s baby and the two talk about how things worked out for the best; even though Allie did not ultimately let them adopt her child.  The two realize they are about to give their daughter, Ari, a new life and Will thinks another baby and a dog might be in their future, too!

Later, it’s time for one last look at Horton Town Square, and Sonny and Will remember their love from the beginning in a short flashback with a few moments of how they came together.

Will says it’s a tradition for when a Horton leaves Salem to visit the dedication to Tom and Alice in the ‘Square’.  Finally, it’s time for Sonny and Will to say goodbye to Salem for now as they walk out together..

So, what did you think of the final episode of Chandler and Freddie’s? Did you want more time spent on WilSon’s history in the flashback montage? Are you sad to see them go? Comment below.

DAYS Rob Scott Wilson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

If you think you were emotionally drained watching Ben Weston battle himself for control – think of how draining it must have been for Ben’s portrayer, actor Rob Scott Wilson, or for the character of Ben himself!

Well, in the final three episodes last week on Days of our Lives, Rob Scott Wilson once again showed why he is in complete command of this complex character – a former serial killer who has fought so hard to redeem himself, married the love of his life, Ciara (Vicroria Konefal), only to have it all almost wiped out by a heinous plot by Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva).

Eve used drugs and torture techniques to try to drive Ben to kill Ciara as payback for him murdering her daughter, Paige (True O’Brien).  Weston was supported by some very fine scene partners in his performances: the aforementioned DePaiva, Konefal, and Kristian Alfonso (Hope); but it was Rob who drove the scenes and had the meatiest of material to play and boy, did he deliver.

Would Ben strangle his beloved Ciara with a necktie like his other previous victims? Wilson went from one minute being programmed to kill her, to another minute realizing he is in trouble … and so is Ciara’s life – so he tells her to lock the door of the bathroom and to not let him in! Although, as we saw, he eventually lost control and broke through the door and went to turn the lock reaching his hand from the outside to the inside. (Horror film moment!)

Later, when we see Ben crumpled on the floor in tears, Hope finds him, but her daughter is missing and Ben can’t recall what happened to her.  Fearing at first she killed Ciara, Hope is besides herself, and so is Ben.

From beat to beat, from turn to turn, Wilson was terrifying and heartbreaking all at the same time.  And with that, Michael Fairman TV names Rob Scott Wilson our choice for the Power Performance of the Week.

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
