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.

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: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

DAYS’ Olivia Rose Keegan Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Although she is exiting the show on-screen next week on Days of our Lives, Olivia Rose Keegan (Claire) got the opportunity to go out in a blaze of glory (those damn lighters!).

If you caught this past Tuesday’s installment of the NBC daytime drama series, Claire finally became entrapped and completely unhinged, after being set-up by Tripp (Lucas Adams) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal); where everyone learned she was the responsible party for the notorious cabin fire and was about to attempt to set her rival, Ciara, on fire in a cabin, yet again, after taking off with her.

In the process, Tripp was held with a knife to his throat by Claire, and eventually hit his head trying to get away from her knocking him unconscious.  The perfect opportunity for Claire to make her getaway with Ciara.

Once at the Cabin, Claire pours gas all around as Ciara begs her to stop, while she is chained to the bed.  Claire then flicks the lighter.  To the rescue come Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Marlena (Deidre Hall); who have tracked down where the young women are.  Ciara calls out to Ben, who breaks down the cabin door.

Just then, Claire holds out the lighter with the flame ready to start another fire.  Knowing she is caught, Claire starts to explain how she lost her mind in all of this.  Ben tries to talk her down and to please put the lighter away, as does Hope.  As a desperate mother, Hope begs Claire to let Ciara live, and tells Claire that she knows she really doesn’t want to do this.  Hope tells her that she knows that Claire loves them both.   As Ben rescues Ciara, Claire closes the lighter as Marlena holds her.  As the others get out of harm’s way, Marlena says she has got this … and now it’s Claire and Marlena alone and inside the cabin together.

But then, wanting to end her own life, Claire picks up the lighter and flicks it open.  She tells Marlena she can’t go back and says, “It’s better if she dies.”  Claire thinks she’s a monster and certifiable … and is as criminal as what Ben Weston has done in his past.  Reassuring her and talking her down, Marlena promises Claire that with help, she can turn her life around as Ben has done.

Claire breaks down as Marlena holds her.  Next, Marlena is able to get her out of the cabin, away from setting herself on fire, and on her way to the hospital for observation, until it can be figured out what’s next for the troubled young woman.  As they leave the scene, Claire sobs uncontrollably knowing she is a damaged soul, has lost her way, and realizing the harm she has done to other people.

In all of these scenes, Keegan brought the angst, the mental instability, and the realization of Claire’s horrific motivations to life, in a dramatic, and not over-the-top way, even in the most melodramatic of soapy circumstances.  For those reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Olivia’s work are Power Performance of the Week.

Knowing those scenes were part of her final days of shooting on DAYS, Keegan told Soap Opera Digest in an interview (in their latest issue on newsstands now), “Obviously, it was sad to shoot.  And it was emotionally demanding and bittersweet, because Victoria Konefal and I are best friends.”

So, what did you think of Olivia’s performance in the key scenes? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Unmasked! The Part Of Nicole Walker Is Now Being Played By Kristen DiMera

On Friday, NBC’s Days of our Lives delivered quite the cliffhanger as fans go into the Memorial Day Weekend.  There had been plenty of speculation that something just wasn’t quite right with Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) since her “return from the dead” to Salem.  Leave it to head writer, Ron Carlivati to come up with an exciting twist …  and he did!

As it turns out, that isn’t Nicole after all, but Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wearing a very convincing Nicole mask and weaving her plot while under wraps; chief among those plots is to nab Brady (Eric Martsolf) as her man; once and for all.

In story, at the Salem Inn, “Nicole” kisses Brady.  At first he responds, but then backs off, until “Nicole” yelps, “Damn it, Brady! Why are you fighting me on this? Just forget about Holly.”  Brady is stunned! “Nicole” says she wants to escape the pain of losing her daughter, but Brady leaves and “Nicole” smashes a vase.

Later at the Inn, Xander (Paul Telfer) hands over Holly’s hospital records.  Meanwhile, “Nicole” tells her accomplice all about the memorial service and how devastated Eric (Greg Vaughn ) was, and how bad she wants to be with Brady.  Admitting Brady currently rejected her, she says it’s only a matter of time before he gives in to her seductions.

Next, we see “Nicole” ripping a mask from her face, just as Xander announces that Nicole is being played by “Kristen DiMera” and smirks.  Meanwhile, Kristen emerges from under the mask, free at last as her wig comes off as she lets down her hair.   Thus, the pieces all are starting to fit together.
