Rafe returns to the loft looking for Sami, but finds Caroline instead. She gives him a piece of her mind but he’s distracted by the thought of where Sami might be. At the warehouse, Rafe2 accosts Sami. They argue and Sami blasts him for everything he did to her. When Sami makes a bolt for the door, he stops her and starts to strangle her. Feisty Sami doesn’t give up but the imposter is just about to kill her when Rafe shows up and pummels him. Once the imposter is restrained, Sami warns Rafe that his look-alike is never going to help them nail the DiMeras. Without him, they won’t get the proof they need to put them away. Rafe realizes they may have to formulate a new plan. Abigail catches Daniel and Jennifer kiss. She assures her mom that while it’s awkward, she’s okay with it. She mentions that Uncle Lucas called, and Daniel thinks Lucas must disapprove of him. He admits he’s not proud of how he and Chloe carried on behind Lucas’ back. Jennifer tells Daniel not to worry. She won’t let her little brother influence her; she can make up her own mind. Daniel is pleased to hear this and he invites her to go away for the weekend. Jennifer is touched and says there is nothing she’d like more.

Dario has admitted to having feelings for Melanie, but she tells him she can’t go there; she can’t get involved with another “bad boy.” Dario is put off by this. She tries to explain about Philip, how she can’t fall for someone like him again, someone who cuts corners. A rejected Dario tries to shrug it off. He then learns Gabi is in the hospital and rushes out. At the hospital, Will tends to Gabi, who had her appendix removed. Gabi is crushed that Rafe is nowhere to be seen, but is thankful when Dario arrives. Melanie is touched when she witnesses a sweet moment between Dario and his sister. Vivian and Quinn run into each other and it’s an awkward reunion – they are mother and son! Vivian abandoned Quinn as a child, and now she suspects he’s in town to seek revenge. Quinn swears that’s not the case but Vivian realizes she must find out all she can about her son and his motives. EJ wakes up in Taylor’s hotel room, having made love to her. He insists he won’t allow her to live in hiding. They’re going home, and he’s going to handle Nicole. Later, Taylor runs into Lexie and explains she’s ready to be with EJ. Meanwhile, EJ returns home and tells Nicole he was with her sister. She goes ballistic, and they have a huge confrontation. Abigail comes to pick up Chad for their date and overhears what she believes to be a physical fight between them. Against Chad’s better judgment, Abigail calls Bo. EJ tells Nicole they’ve reached a standoff and need a new agreement, but she disagrees. Bo arrives, and Nicole prepares to spill all about EJ’s imposter scheme.

Rafe nearly tells Bo about the imposter but in response to Sami’s pleas, he decides to keep his counsel. He and Sami examine Fay’s cameo and contemplate the (presumably bad) fate of the woman to whom it belonged. Meanwhile, Taylor looks at a photo of Fay wearing the cameo. Chloe is feeling hopeful for the first time in a long time and talks to Adrienne about the new guy she met. Meanwhile, Vivian and Quinn have words. Later, Quinn meets with a client and shows him Chloe’s picture. Quinn then takes Chloe out to lunch. He asks if she’s ready to return to performing. She thinks he’s talking about music, but he finally drops a bomb – he’s talking about sex! Meanwhile, Vivian vows to find out why Quinn’s really in town.

Brady is surprised to see Taylor back in town. She reveals she and EJ love one another. She explains that he plans on divorcing Nicole to be with her. Brady is not pleased. She implores Brady not to go to the police about EJ’s former drug business. She insists he’s a changed man. Alone, Brady decides EJ is going down. Nicole is about to confess to Bo about EJ kidnapping Rafe when EJ subtly reminds her of what she’ll lose if she does – Sydney and Johnny. Nicole decides to say nothing. After Bo leaves, a triumphant EJ claims he’s won. Later, a furious Nicole crosses with Taylor. Taylor says there’s nothing Nicole can say or do that will make her stop loving EJ. Nicole gets an idea. Chad tells Abigail she really shouldn’t have called Bo to the mansion. Abigail realizes Chad is more of a DiMera than she wanted to believe. Hope and Jennifer help Ciara and her friends work on a project for their Young Adventurers club. In private, Jennifer tells Hope she’s going to spend the night with Daniel. Hope gives her blessing. After failing at helping the girls with their arts and crafts project, Hope teaches them self-defense. Ciara inadvertently causes Jennifer to fall. Jennifer realizes she’s injured her back, but insists nothing will stop her night with Daniel. Carly calls in sick, determined to detox. Daniel pays her a visit, thinking she has the flu. They share a sweet moment, which Melanie witnesses. Carly is more drawn to Daniel than ever.

Quinn tells Chloe he wants her to work for him – as an escort! She naturally balks at the idea but he threatens to reveal she slept with him and then took his money. Chloe says he has no proof she did anything wrong. Then Quinn shows her video of them making love. Nicole tries to tell Taylor the truth about EJ, but she doesn’t want to hear it. EJ shows up in time to keep Nicole from attacking her sister. Nicole witnesses EJ and Taylor’s love for each other. Hurt and angry, she’s about to out EJ when he makes a thinly veiled threat. Nicole goes. Taylor asks EJ if there really is something else she should know about him. Meanwhile, Nicole slams into the DiMera mansion and calls out for Stefano, determined to get her way.  Quinn reveals to Chloe that he recorded her taking his money for sex. Chloe freaks out, especially when Victor shows up and taunts her about moving on to another man so quickly. Quinn defends Chloe. When Victor leaves, Chloe reiterates her disgust to Quinn, but he threatens to go public with the recording if she doesn’t comply and turn tricks for him. He gives her a card with the time and place to meet a client.

Rafe visits Gabi in the hospital and can’t help but show how much he cares about her. Gabi is upset with him at first, but when she learns she can’t get released in time for that night’s prom, she falls apart in his arms. Will enlists Melanie and Dario’s help for a mysterious plan. They secretly decorate Gabi’s hospital room in an attempt to bring the prom to her. Gabi is blown away by the surprise. Later, she and Will share a romantic dance. They assure each other they are not disappointed about not having an “after party” in a hotel room. Dario is cold to Melanie until he overhears her telling Rafe what a great brother Dario has been to Gabi. Later, Melanie convinces Dario to have a casual dinner with her.  Nicole turns to Stefano for help, urging him to keep EJ away from Taylor. He knows about her blackmail and so wonders why he should help her. Nicole argues that she accepts EJ for who he is; she won’t try to make him change like her sister would. Meanwhile, Taylor and EJ grow closer. He warns her that Nicole might say some disparaging things against him. Taylor knows her sister will do anything to discredit him and tells him not to worry. Later, EJ goes home and informs Stefano that he will not kill Rafe2 after all. Stefano says Nicole was right about Taylor. Rafe is confused when Alicia – the imposter’s one night stand – shows up at the loft. He does his best to get rid of her and not give himself away at the same time. After Alicia leaves, Taylor shows up to see Sami, who isn’t home. Rafe tries his best “Faux Rafe,” creeping her out in the process. Taylor is about to leave when she spots her mom’s cameo, and she demands to know why they have it! Rafe is stunned. Abigail is taken aback when Jennifer reveals her plans to go away on a romantic weekend with Daniel. Abigail reluctantly gets on board with this new development. Later, Abigail meets up with Chad and comes on strong. Chad questions her, and she realizes she was acting out at her mom. Meanwhile, Daniel picks up Jennifer and realizes she has major back pain. He’s about to cancel their plans but Jennifer’s back “pops” back in – now she’s set to go. Earlier, Daniel tells Carly he’s going away with Jennifer and it’s too much for her. She steals drugs and goes home, determined to forget.

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).

Photo: JPI

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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
