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.

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?
