Will apologizes to Chad about his mom, Madeline, dying. Will feels responsible, but Chad lets Will off the hook. Chad feels like he needs to fill in some blanks, and Will offers to help him – starting with Kate. At the same time, Kate learns Madeline’s safe deposit box was empty upon her death. Stefano thinks they have nothing to worry about. Kate, now having the only copy of Chad’s real birth certificate, realizes she holds all the cards- – and Madeline’s secret. She is looking at the certificate when Lucas calls. She tells her son she was just thinking about him. Nathan moves in with Stephanie, but her joy is short lived when she realizes he is keeping a photo of Melanie. At the same time, Philip surprises Melanie with the test results of her latest nursing exam. He’s proud of her and gives her a necklace. Later at the Brady Pub, Melanie learns from Adrienne that Philip was at Daniel’s apartment the morning after Chloe’s accident. Philip explains it was for Chloe, but Melanie is slightly suspicious. Abe and Lexie take Theo to a therapy session. Theo brings up Aunt Hope’s treasure. Lexie, confused, tells Theo to show her what he means. Later, Abe and Lexie revisit the topic of opening their heart and home to someone else. Later, at the lake, Theo finds a wallet and tells Lexie that Aunt Hope’s treasure looks like this and she has a lot of treasure. At the hospital, Maggie sits with Victor. Caroline arrives, upset that Victor didn’t call her about Bo. Maggie urges Victor to make amends with her and he tries. At the same time, Justin tells Hope about Bo’s accident. She flies over to the hospital and is on the case, but Bo can’t remember anything. Carly states it’s because of the meds, but Hope vows to find who did this. Later, Hope tells Bo how much he means to her and she doesn’t know what she’d do if she lost him. Bo takes her hand and Carly witnesses the moment. Nicole goes over her diary with all the places she has hidden her incriminating evidence against EJ. Later, she is surprised and touched when Brady stops by, but worries when he picks up her diary. Seeing her shabby accommodations, Brady offers to help Nicole out with some money, but she insists her ship is coming in. Later, Nicole contacts EJ about their agreement. Rafe has a copy of Nicole’s diary; unfortunately, it is in code. Arianna visits him and they fight about her friendship with EJ. Arianna leaves upset, and later, Rafe thinks he may have cracked the code in Nicole’s diary. Carly tries to comfort Daniel, who is confused by Chloe’s erratic behavior.

Philip gives Chloe an idea to explain why she doesn’t want to get married right away. Chloe explains her reluctance to Daniel, and he does a 180, thinking all is good. Later, Carly tells Chloe she has set up a paternity test at another hospital, Saint Mary’s. At the same time, Daniel is consulting on a case and plans to take Melanie with him – also at Saint Mary’s. Kate is surprised that Chad wants to see her. Chad asks about his mother’s past, but Kate urges him to drop the subject and remember how much his mother loved him. Chad seems to let it go. Stefano bonds with Will, but remains cool to Chad. The secret as to why Kate is keeping the truth of Chad’s paternity deepens. Bo talks Carly into discharging him from the hospital, hoping that being at home will help him remember the circumstances of his attack. Meanwhile, Justin is suspicious of a strange conversation with Hope in which she doesn’t seem to recall that they kissed. Carly tries to hypnotize Bo and asks Hope to stay in a police capacity. Later, Bo is “under,” and Carly asks him what he remembers. Meanwhile, Justin confides in Adrienne that he thinks something is not right with Hope.

Nicole gets EJ to give her cash in exchange for her silence. She moves the blackmail materials she’s stashed, unaware Rafe is hot on her trail. Sami is hurt when Rafe gives her the cold shoulder. She has a tough day with Johnny, and EJ helps smooth things over. Later, EJ blurts that this won’t be a problem when they’re married. Maggie warns that Brady is being drawn back into Nicole’s web. Later, Brady realizes that something is up between Victor and Maggie. Maggie tells Victor in no uncertain terms that he needs to go home to his wife.  Brady is stunned when he crosses paths with Dr. Baker.  Carly prompts Bo under hypnosis to remember the night Hope almost killed him. Hope is positive they are about to finally get answers. Just when it looks like Hope might remember her alternate self; Caroline interrupts and reacts to the triangle. Hope returns home, where Carly later shows up and asks for help in getting Bo to take it easy. Hope is driven to find Bo’s would-be murderer. Vivian shows up and says look no further, it’s Carly. Bo runs into Abe and Theo at the police station. He learns from Theo that Ciara’s treasure was a collection of wallets and that she got them from her mommy. Brady chases after Baker, but he gets away. Brady calls the police, and Nicole freaks when she learns this. Brady is suspicious of Nicole’s nervousness, especially after she gets a call (he doesn’t realize it’s from Baker!). Nicole covers that it’s a problem at the studio and leaves. EJ broaches the subject of marriage to Sami. She’s drawn to him, but can’t handle giving him an answer. She goes to Caroline and tells her how torn she is between Rafe and EJ. Caroline surprises her by telling her to marry EJ. In the meantime, EJ tells Stefano he brought up marriage to Sami and speaks of his determination to make sure she never learns he was the one who kidnapped Sydney. After being shut down by Maggie, Victor returns home and starts drinking. Vivian calls him on it. He refuses to discuss Maggie with her and reminds Vivian of their marriage arrangement concerning Bo and Carly. Alone, Vivian wishes she could find a way to make Victor love her.

Theo tells Bo that Ciara’s treasure were wallets she got from her mom. Bo questions Ciara, who finally admits she took the wallets from Hope. Vivian, meanwhile, accuses Carly of trying to kill Bo, since she already killed Lawrence. Carly explains to Hope why she killed Lawrence. Her explanation subconsciously resonates and rattles Hope as it parallels what “Nighttime” Hope feels toward Bo. Hope turns in early, surprised to find her pill bottle is empty. She decides to deal with the matter the next day and takes a pill she finds at the bottom of her purse. She wakes up as “Nighttime” Hope. Thanks to Carly, she now knows what to do about Bo. Carly runs into Vivian and chews her out for accusing her of trying to harm Bo. Vivian is unrepentant. Vivian realized Carly is keeping yet more secrets from her and vows to find out what they are. Dr. Baker worries about Nicole and Hope, but decides it’s safe to leave town. Fay calls Nicole and thanks her for money she sent. Worried about Baker, Nicole cuts the call short. She asks EJ to loan her Marco. When Marco arrives, she tells him to pay Baker a visit.

Rafe learns that nearly all the locations in Nicole’s coded diary are empty. He finds one more location that makes him think whatever Nicole is hiding will be there. Meanwhile, Caroline tells Sami if she loves Rafe she needs to follow her heart. Sami bumps into Rafe and nearly tells him about EJ’s discussion of marriage. She stops herself when she sees how distracted he is by work, unaware he’s trying to find out the reason behind Nicole and EJ’s truce. Sami goes back to EJ and he offers her a sincere and romantic proposal of marriage. Later, Rafe shows up at Fay’s place of work.

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.
