Brady talks to a private investigator about tracking down the person who drugged him, possibly leading to the person who framed Arianna. Unfortunately, the P.I. comes up empty. EJ and Arianna prepare for her hearing. He is still determined to prove Nicole framed his client. Outside the courtroom, Nicole’s actions make Rafe slightly suspicious. He gets in her face as EJ and Arianna show up. Gabi arrives to support her sister. Everyone except Nicole goes into the courtroom. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief as Arianna is released on bail. Brady intends to pay her bail, but EJ beats him to it. Rafe isn’t happy about his sister receiving help from EJ, but Arianna accepts the offer. After Rafe leaves, Arianna tries to give Brady back his engagement ring, but he tells her to sell it to pay EJ for his services. Later, EJ gets Nicole alone. She calls him out on his bluff. He lies and says he’s got the proof he needs; he’s just waiting for the right moment to reveal all. She’s going down for setting up Arianna. While hanging out at the lake, Will talks to Chad about going to Wake Forest. Chad credits his mother for always pushing him to excel. Will notes he never had that with his mom. As they compare mothers, the discussion becomes heated. Later, Kinsey points out that Gabi is at her sister’s hearing. Will wants to support her and goes. Kinsey thinks he’s crushing on Gabi. Will meets up with Gabi and they return to the lake and have a nice moment. The kids run out of food and Will offers to get more. While he’s gone, ‘T’ tells Chad he chose the wrong girl, meaning Mia instead of Gabi. Chad says it’s going to be a long summer. Anything can happen. Madeline begs Kate to keep her secret. Kate says she will do her best, but can’t promise she won’t tell Stefano if it were to come up. Later, Will overhears that Madeline Peterson-Woods used to be a call girl. Shane and Kimberly work through their issues, and decide to work on being a family in Los Angeles. Carly crosses with Jennifer. They discuss her relationship with Bo. Jennifer tells her friend to follow her heart. Hope tells Bo that Arianna was released on bail. She fears Arianna will attack someone else. Bo disagrees, but Hope is convinced she knows what’s going on inside Arianna’s head. She doesn’t realize that she’s describing herself. Bo brings up the divorce papers, and Hope is about to ask him to postpone when Carly interrupts. Hope changes her mind and tells Bo to go ahead with the divorce. After Hope leaves, Carly wonders if Bo has had a change of heart about the divorce. Bo says no, but worries about Hope’s recent strange behavior. Meanwhile, Hope turns in early and takes a sleeping pill. Later, Ciara tells Justin that Hope had his wallet, while Hope awakens, glad to be back…

Nicole wants Dr. Baker and his partner to take out EJ. They must stop him from revealing the proof he claims to have about her setting up Arianna. Dr. Baker refuses and Nicole realizes she’ll have to take care of EJ on her own. Victor wants to take Maggie out to dinner, but denies it’s a date. Vivian interrupts. Maggie kicks out Victor, and tells Vivian she has no desire to steal her husband. Vivian knows but in a rare moment of vulnerability admits Victor cares for Maggie. Vivian is afraid of losing him. Later, Vivian crosses with Jennifer, who tells her Lawrence was a horrible man. If Vivian refuses to see that then she’s just as bad. Will leaves, unseen, after overhearing Madeline used to be a call girl. Kate and Madeline talk about the secret. Kate reminds Madeline she can’t promise to keep it, especially if Stefano gets suspicious. Stefano enters and wants to know what they’re talking about. Kate simply says the past. After Madeline leaves, Stefano admits he considers Will to be like a grandson. Will overhears Chad inviting Gabi to visit him at college. When Gabi leaves, Will confronts Chad, convinced he’s making a move on Gabi. Chad thinks he’s crazy, and realizes his mom was right in telling him to stay away from Will. Fed up, Will tells Chad his mom is a whore.

EJ discusses his frustration with Stefano. He can’t get Nicole to trip up and reveal she had something to do with setting up Arianna. Stefano tells him to leave Nicole to him. Stefano then learns that EJ told Sami he’s in love with her. Stefano worries EJ is setting himself up for a big fall. EJ feels confident he’s doing everything right this time, and he and Sami will be happy. Later, Sami opens up to EJ about how she might have feelings for him, but can’t get too close yet. She has to learn how to be on her own without a man. She decides to continue living at the DiMera mansion for the time being. Nicole is frustrated that she doesn’t know what EJ might have on her. She sees Sami and slyly tries to get information out of her, but fails. Stefano shows up and torments Nicole, telling her he’s seen EJ’s proof. A freaked Nicole runs out, and then realizes she’s being followed. She tricks Stefano’s man, who’s seized by a cop as Nicole slips away. Nicole lets herself into the DiMera mansion after Sami and EJ leave with the kids, and starts to look for EJ’s supposed proof.

Chad doesn’t confront Madeline, but wants to figure out if it’s true.

EJ and Sami bond when they take the kids to the lake. EJ asks Will about the cuts on his face, but he refuses to talk about his fight with Chad. EJ understands, and Will respects this. Gabi sings Sydney a little lullaby, and Sami reacts, knowing it’s the same one Rafe used to sing. Sami admits she misses Rafe. Gabi thinks Rafe misses her, too. Later, Sami tells Will that Rafe was a fantasy, and she needs to focus on the reality of providing for her children. Will wonders if that reality includes EJ. Nicole searches the DiMera mansion, determined to uncover what EJ has on her. In EJ’s bedroom, she finds a picture of the sonogram from the baby she miscarried. This hits her, but she recovers. When she tries to leave, Stefano nearly catches her. She hides as EJ arrives and Stefano reports that Nicole gave his man the slip. Nicole eavesdrops as they discuss how they have no evidence against her – much to her private relief. As the two men continue to talk, Nicole decides to record them. Her gamble pays off when EJ spills the truth – he was the mastermind behind Sydney’s kidnapping! Carly and Melanie discuss their reservations about Chloe marrying Daniel. Meanwhile, Vivian visits Chloe. Chloe realizes Vivian tricked her into thinking Daniel and Carly were having an affair. Carly walks in and realizes that Vivian’s hatred of her is the reason Chloe did what she did. Vivian warns Carly it’s not over. Abe comes up on Lexie, Theo and Stefano. Abe tells Lexie he’s impressed how she keeps Stefano in line around their son. Later, they talk about their lives and wonder if they should have more kids.  Nicole reels from what she has learned and calls EJ.

Daniel thinks Carly has arrived at the apartment to befriend Chloe, but she has other plans. Daniel leaves for the hospital, where he learns from Kate that Vivian went after Chloe. He asks where she got this information and she says Carly told her. Daniel wonders what’s going on. Back at the apartment, Carly tells Chloe she will keep her secret about her affair – but only if a paternity test proves the child is Daniel’s. Stephanie is wary of Philip’s strange behavior. She accuses him of hiding something, which he vehemently denies. Later, Melanie and Philip run into Stephanie and Nathan at the lake. The couples share an awkward exchange before Melanie and Philip decide to leave. Later, Melanie slips up and tells Philip that Daniel and Chloe are having a baby. Philip is stunned, realizing the child could be his. Caroline has it out with Maggie and then Victor about Victor’s “friendship” with Maggie.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Paul Signs Off In Salem With Tearjerker Goodbye

As they say, “all good things must come to an end”, and on Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers watched a tear-filled and emotional goodbye as actor Christopher Sean, who played the role of Paul Narita for over four years with such dignity and grace, exited the series in his final episode.

It all comes about after Paul is heartbroken to learn, thanks to Brady (Eric Martsolf) who could not lie to him anymore, that Will is still in love with Sonny.  And after calling things off with Will and setting him “free”, Paul asks Brady to come by his apartment to inform him that he is leaving Salem.  Brady is certain that Paul will “find love again.”

Later, Paul’s dad, John Black (Drake Hogestyn), arrives and learns the heartbreaking news that Paul had decided to move back to San Francisco to be near his mom, and because there is a top-notch rehab facility to help him get back on his feet and walk again.

John asks his son: “Are you sure that you are doing all this for the right reasons?” Paul says he is not running away, but adds: “It would be hard for me to be here in Salem with Will and Sonny back together and all that. But mostly I could be with my mom, who I really, really miss, and I could be hopeful because I could probably walk again someday.”

After looking up the clinic on the internet with Brady and Paul, John concludes this is the best situation for his son.   “I need to get back on my feet again, in more ways that one,: Paul says.  When John asks when he is headed out, Paul reveals now.  An emotional John is filled with tears at having to saying goodbye to the son he never knew he had until a few years ago.

Paul says to John in a tearjerker moment: “I used to lie awake in bed thinking what kind of man my father was.  And then I met you, and I saw the way that you cherished Marlena and the way you protected your family and the way you fought for what was right.  You have surpassed every expectation I have ever had about a father.”  He tells John he is grateful for all the time they had together. John tells Paul, “I’m so proud of you,” and he tells his son to always keep that big heart of his open, and they share a touching hug.

There is then a knock at the door at Luke, the new PT comes in to whisk Paul away to San Francisco!  There seems to be an instant connection between the two, and then Luke says that he knows full-well who Paul is, “You’re one of my idols”.  Luke goes on to say that when Paul came out it gave him the strength in his own life to do the same.  We also learn Luke is single, which is not lost on Brady and Paul, and John.

As a nice button on Paul’s journey he says, “I’m not hiding anymore, and I’m not pretending to be anyone I’m not. And for that, I do owe Sonny and Will a lo.,” Luke says, “Who is Sonny and Will?” As everyone sort of chuckles, it’s time to leave for the flight and John and Brady exit with Luke, as Paul looks around the apartment one more time.

Kudos to both Christopher Sean and Drake Hogestyn for those heartfelt scenes between father and son.  How many hankies did you need while watching them? We needed five!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lives Are Forever Changed When Kristen and Xander’s Plans Blow Up In Pivotal Episode

In an explosive and can’t miss episode of Days of our Lives, all roads lead to a warehouse that appears to be filled with presumed dead bodies of former Salemites!  Behind the experiments and illegal activities going on in this creepy place are Xander (Paul Telfer) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk)!  This takes us to the action where Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who has been forced under Xander’s thumb, knocks him out and takes the recording of her confession to murdering Deimos, as she desperately tries to find Eric (Greg Vaughan), who has been tied up to a chair in another part of the warehouse thanks to Kristen!

Nicole is traumatized with baby Holly in tow as she comes upon a confusing maze of locked door with the initials VA, AD, AV, SD, ED, JD, and WR on them.  Had you figured out who they all stand for???   Brady (Eric Martsolf) hears Nicole calling out for Eric and is now locked in the E.D. marked room thanks to Sami (Alison Sweeney), who is searching for EJ!  Brady asks Nicole to let him out, she says “no” and not until she finds Eric!

Kristen, who has Eric hostage, tells him that she and Xander need to move precious cargo in the warehouse and the building has been compromised! Sami finds her brother with Kristen! She demands to know where EJ is and attacks Kristen.  Cut to another shocker! Dr. Rolf (William Utay) is alive and prepares a large syringe for his mystery patient.  He explains to the man that the formula was far from perfected back then when they tried to use it, so he understands how apprehensive the patient would be trying it again. After injecting the patient, who we believe could be EJ, Rolf tells him Samantha Brady is here in the warehouse!  The man jumps up on the hearing of Sami’s name and grabs Rolf, but then a Bunsen burner is knocked over by accident and Rolf yells, “Fire!”  Then, the burner explodes in the man’s face like a fireball!

Elsewhere, Xander comes in and finds the Sami/Eric/Kristen situation as sounds of explosions rock the warehouse and everyone starts screaming. Xander and Kristen run out, Sami frees Eric, then rushes out to mind the man she believes is EJ.  But then, rubble falls upon Nicole and she is separated from Eric and Brady.  She fits Holly fits through a hole and Brady runs out of the building with the little girl leaving star-crossed loves Eric and Nicole holding hands through the rubble.

Kristen finds Brady outside with Holly and begs him to come with her.  She wants him back and he tells her no way, and she tells him he will be sorry for this! She runs back inside the burning building.  Sami goes into the lab and calls EJ’s name, but she sees Dr. Rolf and he runs out.  Sami gets the burned man out of the blazing inferno!

Back inside, Nicole begs Eric to watch over Holly, as she is not going to make it out of the fire.  Brady runs back in to save his brother, and hits him with a crowbar, when he won’t leave Nicole and could die himself. A gut-wrenched Nicole knows she is left to die with no way out!  Outside the warehouse, Eric comes to and loses it when he realizes Brady saved him and left Nicole inside!  Next, the warehouse door explodes!  Brady and Eric can’t get back in to save Nicole.

Inside, as the warehouse burns around her, Kristen says she is not afraid, and turns and reveals the Phoenix tattoo on her back! Looks like she is burning herself in the fire only to rise again!

But that’s not all! Rex has returned to Salem in the form of Kyle Lowder making his debut as Kate and Roman’s son. You remember the Gemini Twins???  During Lowder’s first scenes back in Salem (he previously played Brady Black), Ron Carlivati and the DAYS writing team took the opportunity to give us some quickie Rex history including that: sister Cassie was stuck in a piñata and left for dead once, and how he and Cassie fell out of the sky!  Now in present day, Rex tells Roman (Josh Taylor) he is engaged and before he can tell his dad her name, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) walks in with Baby Bonnie.  Rex holds the baby, not knowing that elsewhere Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath) is confessing to Belle (Martha Madison) that Rex is the true bio-dad of Baby Bonnie!
