EJ wants Sami to keep the truth about the latest ransom note from Rafe. Sami, having just reconciled with Rafe, thinks they shouldn’t. Sami stalls the family gathering. EJ explains to Sami that by involving Rafe, she’s only opening herself up to more disappointment. We see EJ’s words getting to Sami and when Rafe shows up, she blurts that she can’t do this. For a second it looks like EJ has lost the battle, but she decides not to tell Rafe anything. At the same time, Anna fears EJ’s obsession with destroying Sami will eventually blow up in his face. Rafe goes to the Brady Pub and confides in Arianna. He feels something is going on with Sami and EJ. Arianna defends EJ and Rafe knows he simply needs to support Sami. Carly is desperate for news about Melanie’s health, and Maggie tries to comfort her. Carly doesn’t think Maggie looks so good. Maggie returns home and drops a coffee mug. She fears her myasthenia gravis is returning. At the hospital, Melanie wakes to find Daniel. At first she thinks his presence indicates something is wrong, but he says she’s fine. Melanie appreciates everything Daniel has done for her. She talks about Trent and how Carly gave her up. She still can’t believe a woman who calls herself her mother shot her. Daniel urges her to get her rest. Later, Daniel tracks down Carly and blasts her for her actions. He’s desperate to tell Melanie the truth about being her father, but held back due to her condition. Carly wishes he’d understand where she is coming from, but Daniel can’t and won’t. He would have done anything for his daughter. Carly defends her actions, but Daniel doesn’t buy it. Daniel says she doesn’t deserve Melanie. Meanwhile, Arianna visits Melanie and tells her not to think about Carly and the shooting. The woman is going to jail. Melanie thinks that’s where she belongs.

EJ tells Sami to get Rafe out of the house so he can bring her news about Sydney. Concerned that Sami is acting strangely, Rafe confides his worry to Roman. Roman suspects Sami is in denial after having lost two babies in one year. Rafe agrees and decides to confront Sami. Meanwhile, EJ arrives with a demand from the kidnapper for Sami to log on to a website. Sami and EJ see a video of Sydney, alive and well with a ransom demand. Sami is overjoyed that Sydney is alive. EJ leaves, purportedly to leave money for the kidnapper, but returns to Anna. He had a computer program attached to the video of Sydney that allows him to hear and see through the use of Sami’s webcam. Now he will know if Sami happens to confide in Rafe about the ransom note. Sami, meanwhile, continues to watch the video of Sydney as Rafe returns. Arianna is still upset with Brady for wanting to see Nicole to tell her about Sydney’s death. Roman arrives and she learns Brady asked him to arrange the visit. Roman tells Brady that Nicole is still not interested in seeing him. Arianna exits and Brady follows her and insists that while he cares about Nicole, he loves Arianna. She doesn’t believe him. He says he wants her to take time off from work as he has a surprise for her, something that will prove he does love her. Mia overhears Chad ask Gabi out on a date. Covering her jealousy, she asks Chad if he’ll meet her, without Gabi, to discuss how to cheer Will up. He misses his sister. Chad agrees. Meanwhile, Gabi offers her condolences to Will and expresses her mistrust of Mia’s feelings toward him. Will knows Mia is conflicted, but he’s giving her time to figure everything out. At the same time, Mia admits to Chad she still thinks of him, and they kiss. Rattled, Chad breaks it off and leaves. Mia smiles, knowing he still has feelings for her.

Via Sami’s laptop, EJ spies on Sami with Rafe to make sure she lies about the ransom demand. Rafe questions Sami about what she’s watching on the computer. Sami tells him that it’s an old video of Sydney, but almost spills the truth. EJ calls her to tell her to come see him at once. Sami makes an excuse to leave and Rafe is about to look at the computer when he gets a call about a lead. The lead doesn’t pan out, but Sami and EJ grow closer as they wait to hear more from the supposed kidnapper. Philip tells Chloe that Daniel may be up on charges with the hospital board for letting Carly see Melanie. Chloe confronts Carly, who thinks Chloe knows that Daniel is Melanie’s father and inadvertently blurts it. Chloe is shocked and Daniel is angry when he walks in and realizes Carly told her. Daniel blasts Carly and comforts Chloe, who claims she’s all right about it, but really isn’t. Carly runs into Rafe on the pier. Rafe understands what Carly did for her daughter, and she says a mother’s love can change everything about a person. Meanwhile, Daniel starts to tell Melanie she is his daughter, but Philip interrupts. Nathan and Stephanie finish their ski trip. Stephanie confirms her decision not to tell Nathan about Melanie’s letter. Later, when they return to Salem, Stephanie is surprised and thrown to see Philip in town and not on his honeymoon. At the same time, Nathan is shocked to find Melanie in the hospital. Nathan is stunned to learn that Melanie has been shot, and expresses deep concern. Meanwhile, Stephanie learns from Philip that Melanie is in the hospital. She realizes that Nathan is there and rushes to Melanie’s room before the truth about the letter can come out. Indeed, Melanie and Nathan are just about to touch on the subject when Stephanie enters. Melanie realizes that Nathan and Stephanie were away together on a romantic vacation, and she becomes very angry at Nathan over his mixed signals. She takes a moment alone with Stephanie to express her dismay. Later, Nathan tells Stephanie that there is no point in feeling badly for being away when Melanie was shot. They couldn’t have changed anything. Bo plans to question Melanie regarding the shooting. He tells Carly that if Melanie can testify that it was accident, she will be acquitted. Carly would rather plead guilty and spare her loved ones, but Bo convinces her of her value in his life and Melanie’s. Later, Carly tries to apologize to Daniel for her blurt to Chloe. She promises to make things right, and Daniel hopes she has the chance since her future is in Melanie’s hands. Meanwhile, angry off her interaction with Nathan, Melanie makes her statement to Bo. Carly shot her on purpose.

Daniel confronts Vivian, and issues a memorable warning. Victor learns of Vivian’s visit to Melanie’s hospital room and is not pleased. However, Vivian convinces him of her sincerity. Prompted by a talk with Carly, Philip comes to the house to insist that Victor throw Vivian out. Vivian offers to leave. Victor takes her up on the offer, but hints it won’t be long before she can move back. Anna rips EJ a new one over what he’s doing to Sami. He is beyond cruel. EJ says it’s an eye for an eye, but Anna thinks that’s even worse, especially treating someone he loves this way. He insists he doesn’t love Sami. Rafe continues to worry about Sami, who is on edge about the ransom situation. She covers but Rafe tries to call her out. When she receives a phone call from EJ, telling her the whole ransom and kidnapper thing appears to be a hoax, she freaks out. Still thinking she’s melting down, worried Rafe calls Will and asks him to meet everyone at the Brady Pub. When they get there, Rafe questions Sami about EJ’s call, but she stonewalls. Later, Will shows up for support, and Rafe calls EJ. He wants to know what’s going on. EJ is short with him. He’s dealing with something, and hangs up. Later, a distraught Sami thanks Rafe for his support. He wishes there was a way he could bring Sydney back. Suddenly, in a huge moment, EJ arrives holding a very alive baby Sydney in his arms. Carly knows she kept the truth from Daniel, but begs him not to shut her out. At the same time, Bo talks to Melanie, who is intent on taking down Carly by saying she shot her on purpose. Bo doesn’t buy it, but Philip thinks he’s a bit biased towards Carly. Bo asks Philip for a moment alone with Melanie and he tries to talk some sense into her, but she finally erupts. Daniel enters and throws him out. Daniel tells Melanie he’s her father. Philip talks to Hope, urging her to fight for Bo. She says she’s tried, but there’s only so much she can do. She urges Philip to get Carly to consider the facts of the case. Philip says if Melanie says Carly shot her intentionally, he will support her. Bo hears this and says Philip’s a fool. Philip thinks Bo’s the fool, especially since he’s choosing to be with Carly, and not Hope. Later, Hope volunteers to talk to Melanie and Bo thanks her. Justin finds Hope and offers his support and his feelings. Hope puts the kibosh on that, and says her heart belongs to Bo. Later, Justin finds Carly and he offers his legal services. She notes that if she’s not in prison, his chances of being with Hope are increased. Justin intends to have Hope.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will and Sonny Call It Quits

On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Chandler Massey (Will) once again delivered heart-breaking scenes as the love story of WilSon took a dramatic turn.

After Sonny is summoned to the prison to see Will, the two have an emotional conversation, in which Will tells Sonny he knows that he kissed Evan (Brock Kelly) thanks to Kate (Lauren Koslow(.  Sonny assured Will that the he is not with Evan, but Will says, “Not yet.”

Will goes on to say that what he did by taking the life of Sonny’s mom, and Justin’s (Wally Kurth) wife has put Sonny in an untenable situation and their marriage.  While Sonny calls it a tragic accident, Will will not allow Sonny to live his life with the ball and chain around him which is now an incarcerated Will, who will serve a prison term for what seems like years.

Knowing Sonny’s animosity towards Will, as much as he protests he doesn’t have it, Will asks for a divorce as tears well-up in Sonny’s eyes. Will mentions Justin’s recent prison visit and how they ran into each other.  Sonny tells Will just what Justin told him, that he is like a son to him. But Will feels so much guilt for taking the woman Justin loved away from him, and Sonny’s beloved mother, Adrienne.

Then, Sonny asks if this is really about Evan.  Will says he  is just a catalyst as he wants Sonny to be happy with Evan, or whoever else he wants to be with in the future.  Will says he loves his husband so much that he wants him to find happiness again, and he knows he won’t if he is tethered to him.  Will tells Sonny he knows his daughter is in good hands with him and Gabi (Camila Banus) and he needs to honor Sonny for all that he had meant to him by loving him by setting him free.

The two men come to the harsh realization by finally admitting to one another that this was a long time coming.  With tears streaming down his face, Sonny says to Will, that when Will asked him to stop visiting him in prison, he knew their marriage was over, but neither could muster up the  courage to end it.

In the end, they both say how sorry they are, and say goodbye as Will is taken by the prison guard back to his cell as Sonny ls left devastated.

Freddie and Chandler reminded us all of why WilSon has been a continuing power couple on DAYS with their performances.  Now the question is; can Sonny and Will work their way back to each other, or is this the final straw in their lengthy relationship?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.
