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. Hope calls Baker and makes plans to see him as Justin learns from Ciara that she found his wallet under Hope’s bed. Hope tries to cover with Justin, and ends up kissing him. Adrienne shows up with papers for Justin and learns from Ciara that he’s in the bedroom with Hope. She walks in on their embrace. Hope covers, but Adrienne isn’t so easily convinced. After Hope leaves, Justin says he was only comforting Hope, but Adrienne notices lipstick on his lips. Meanwhile, Hope meets up with Dr. Baker, and gives him a list of what she needs to finally finish off Bo. Chad and Will fight over the fact that Will called Chad’s mom a whore. After a cop breaks up the fight, Chad gets Will to admit he overheard Madeline tell Kate she was a call girl. Chad thinks Will heard wrong, but is troubled by it. 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. He thinks this has to do with Arianna, so he meets Nicole in a public place. Their past motives and hatred for each other is explored. Nicole tells EJ she heard what he told Stefano the night before. She knows he had Anna kidnap Sydney! Kate overhears Carly speaking to Chloe. She warns Carly that Chloe is no good and talks about how she cheated on Lucas with Daniel. Meanwhile, Daniel tells Victor what Chloe means to him. Later, he shows Chloe his family christening gown and she nearly breaks. 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.

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.
