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.

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.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Bring the Heartache and Heartbreak to DAYS’ Elani Wedding

Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives showcased the nuptials of now long-suffering duo, Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers).  In true soap opera fashion things didn’t look good for the couple to get hitched in the first place, especially with Gabi’s (Camila Banus) threats that she would literally blow Julie’s (Susan Seasforth Hayes) heart out of her chest, if Lani did not bust up with Eli at the altar.

As Marlena (Deidre Hall) is officiating the ceremony, things took a dark turn when she asked if anyone in attendance could show just cause why the couple should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Everyone is silent as Gabi, who is an attending the nuptials, is quite happy with herself broadcasting the wedding from her phone to Julie who is in the hospital.  Next, an emotional Lani tells Gabi how sorry she is for shooting Stefan.  Lani says she hopes Gabi can set aside their differences for the sake of Julie and Eli.  Gabi tells her she thought she made herself clear.  It appears that Lani decides she is moving forward with the vows, after standing up for herself and ignoring Gabi’s threat after tackling Gabi WWE Smackdown style.  Next, Gabi informs to everyone she just pressed the button on the app on her phone and Eli’s grandmother’s heart exploded. But hold the phone! In that moment, there is a twist.  We go back to Lani at the altar who snaps out of this blackmail nightmare she just played out in her head.  That didn’t really happen, but the audience sees her thinking process through it, which leads Lani in the present to break off the wedding to her beloved Eli.

At the altar, Lani tells Eli through her tears she cannot do this.  Eli is stunned and confused.  The bride tells him he doesn’t deserve this.  Next, Lani turns towards Gabi, and then tells Eli she is sorry and then runs out of the ceremony.   Gabi mutters that her “work is done here” which seems to be overheard by Will (Chandler Massey).

What follows is absolutely devastating scene in the park as Eli has followed Lani there.  Through her tears, and knowing that the only way she can break things off with Eli is to hurt him deeply, Lani tells him at first that she doesn’t deserve to be happy with a husband, because she shot and killed Gabi’s.  However, Eli won’t accept that, and that is when she has to muster everything inside her to break Eli’s heart in pieces.  She tells the man she loves that she doesn’t love him anymore. Lani says that she thought that after baby David’s death and all they went through to be together it would all fall back into place for them, but for her, it didn’t.

Lani says her decision is made. With tears streaming down his face, Eli cries, “So you’re leaving me? That’s it?” Lani confirms it is, and that she is sorry and then runs off.  Cue none other than Gabi to find a gut-punched Eli on the park bench, who she hugs! Looks like there’s a part two to Gabi’s heinous plan ahead.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
