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: What Did You Think of the Reveal of Who Killed Charlie?

“Sorry Charlie!” Those were the clever words said by the killer of the evil Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) on Days of our Lives.  But evil kinda knows evil, and thus viewers learned in a reveal just who was the culprit.

DAYS fans begin to get to the truth when on Monday’s episode, while under hypnosis from Marlena (Deidre Hall), John (Drake Hogestyn) recalls opening the door to the apartment in time to see someone in a red coat with a hood (very ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ but with a fashion flare) shoot Charlie.

When “Doc” brings John out of his hypnotic state, she asks him who fired the gun?  John is horrified as he reveals it was their daughter, Belle! (Martha Madison). John shares that Belle was wearing the coat they gave her for Valentine’s Day.  A shocked John utters, “My God, Doc. Our little girl blew that punk away.”  However, Marlena refuses and does not believe Belle would shoot and kill Charlie, let alone anyone.

Jan (Heather Lindell) shows up at Marlena’s office and tells John and Marlena she is not going to be locked up, because of the deal she made for her freedom. Then, we see Jan get more inquisitive into what John and Marlena were discussing before she walked in on them.  They leave to go talk to Belle to get answers, while Jan sneaks back into the office and into Marlena’s drawer to retrieve the recording device to find out exactly what John and Marlena were talking about.

It is there when Jan is alone that viewers learn what happened the night of Charlie’s death. Jan is listening to the recording of John telling Marlena that Belle shot Charlie, but that he didn’t see Belle’s face because she was wearing the red coat.

Next, Jan flashes back to Charlie saying, “Don’t shoot,” and then firing a gunshot as Charlie falls to the ground.  We see the visual of the face of the person in the red coat and it’s Jan!  Next, Jan smirks and says, “Sorry, Charlie.”

So it seems Jan Spears has an ultimate revenge plot to rid Belle once and for all and have her locked behind bars.  How long will it be before the other Salemites catch on that Jan is the murderer?

So, were you happy to see it was Jan who was the one who killed Charlie? Did you suspect it was her? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the moment the killer is revealed below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
