Carrie finds Abigail in Austin’s arms in their ski lodge room. To Austin’s horror, Abigail tells Carrie that she and Austin are in love. Melanie quickly gets her friend out of the room before she makes things worse. Austin does damage control with his wife, explaining he doesn’t love Abigail – she’s just experiencing a crush that has grown out of hand. He swears he’s in love with Carrie and only Carrie. Meanwhile, Melanie tries desperately to keep her friend from ruining the Reeds’ marriage but Abigail won’t give up on Austin. When she realizes that Carrie is about to forgive Austin, Abigail blurts out that he made love to her. Austin is unable to refute. Carrie slaps him hard, and then storms out.

At the hospital, a comatose Bo remains in bad shape. Billie, full of concern, gets an update from Daniel before rushing to be by her ex’s side. Billie, Victor and Maggie support each other as they worry for Bo. Later, Hope manages to get a call through to Bo’s room and Billie answers. She begins to update Hope when Bo’s monitors go off. As Billie screams for medical help, Hope hears that Bo is dying! John and Hope learn they can’t leave Alamainia without the passports they were forced to surrender to the judge when they filed for divorce. They won’t be returned to them until the two week period is up. Worried about Bo and Marlena, they frantically try to figure out how to get home. All their ideas lead to dead ends except one – they’ll use their old prowess as art thieves and steal the passports from the government office. It’s their only hope.

Billie is on the phone with Hope, emotionally telling her that Bo is dying as he flatlines. Lexie rushes in, telling Billie to leave the room as she attempts to resuscitate Bo. Waiting anxiously, Billie tries to call Hope back, but can’t get through. Kate arrives at the hospital and comforts her daughter. Lexie informs them Bo is stable, but in bad shape. While they’re waiting to see him, Kate and Billie briefly discuss Kate’s marriage to Stefano. Kate covers her relationship with Ian when Billie brings him up and comments he has a reputation as a womanizer and a ruthless businessman. Later, Billie emotionally tells Bo he has to pull through. Meanwhile, in Alamainia, Hope is frantic; having heard from Billie that Bo could be dying. She is driven to get home to her husband but she and John are unable to reach anyone by phone. John and Hope break into the Alamainian government building so they can retrieve their passports and return to Salem. As they conduct their search, the door opens, the lights come on and it appears they’ve been caught!

Lucas and Will have an emotional reunion. Lucas reveals he’s engaged, then tries to draw his son out about what is bothering him. Will avoids and Lucas gives him space. Lucas does express his disapproval about Will working for EJ. Will reluctantly reveals EJ has been blackmailing him because he knows Will is the one who really shot him all those years ago, not Lucas. Lucas is furious. Will surprises his dad when he says he likes working for EJ; he enjoys the excitement and power. Lucas vows he will not stand by and watch his son lose his soul to the DiMeras!

EJ offers to have the ballot tampering charges dropped against Abe if he agrees to let Lexie go. Abe, of course, turns him down, vowing to fight to win his wife back. EJ also lets Roman know his position as police commissioner is on shaky ground. Carrie returns to Salem and has a meltdown over her marriage. She confides in Rafe about learning that Austin slept with Abigail. It’s inconceivable to her that Austin made her feel so rotten for kissing Rafe when the truth is he did something far worse! Rafe comforts her as her emotions shift from rage to worry. She thinks somehow she caused this because she pushed Austin away. She looks at Rafe and confesses: Austin may have cheated on her with Abigail but she cheated too … emotionally. She fell in love with Rafe. Desperate Austin races to find Carrie and runs into Billie instead. The two siblings are happily reunited. When she learns about the debacle with Abigail, however, she reacts with anger, asking him what he was thinking. Austin owns what he did with Abigail, unaware she’s been lying to him. Billie rallies Austin and vows to help him repair his marriage.

Melanie and Abigail return to town, as well. Abigail is anxious to find Austin. She’s convinced she and Austin can now be together since the “truth” is out. Melanie sits her friend down to tell her she’s not being realistic. She’s rationalizing all this, letting an obsession rule her judgment. Austin wants Carrie back and Abigail needs to get that through her head. Melanie is stunned when Abigail slips up and talks about what it will be like making love to Austin for the first time. Melanie realizes she has lied about how far things went. Caught, Abigail explains the lie got out of hand but insists it has served a good purpose. Melanie can’t believe her ears and insists Abigail has to find Austin and tell him the truth – now.  John and Hope have broken into the government office to retrieve their passports and are stunned when they’re caught in the act by none other than Stefano himself. He has their passports and no amount of Hope’s insisting that she needs to return to Bo is getting Stefano to budge. Police sirens are heard approaching, and John and Hope realize they’re going to be arrested, but Stefano offers to get them away before the police arrive. They know taking him up on the offer is a risk but they’re not in a position to find another way out. He does indeed get them to safety but again refuses to hand over the passports, telling them he may need them for something here in Alamainia. He goes and Hope, unable to return to Bo, is beyond frustrated. Austin hears Carrie confess she loves Rafe. Hurt, Austin wants to know if Rafe returns her feelings. Rafe avoids an answer. Austin doesn’t know how to deal with the fact that his wife is in love with another man, and he leaves. Carrie almost follows, but then admits she doesn’t want to go after Austin. She wants to be with Rafe. Rafe confesses he also has feelings for her. In spite of those feelings, they are both still married. Carrie owes it to Austin and herself to salvage her marriage if possible, just as Rafe will try to work things out with Sami. Despite their intense longing, they leave each other to get on with their lives.

Melanie tries hard to get through to Abigail and convince her it’s wrong to continue lying to Austin that they slept together, especially now that his marriage is on the line. Abigail still believes Austin cares for her and is afraid if she tells him the truth now, he’ll hate her. Melanie convinces her that if she and Austin are ever to have any chance, she has to be honest now and tell him the truth. Austin arrives to hear them talking. Abigail seems on the verge of confessing. Brady confides in Marlena about Madison’s 180 after telling him she was going to leave Ian to be with him. Marlena senses Ian and Madison have a very complicated relationship. She cautions Brady will have to be supportive of Madison to get her away from Ian. Brady believes Madison is worth the fight. Meanwhile, Ian undercuts Madison at work, cleverly manipulating her and making her feel insecure. He blames her poor decisions on being distracted by Brady. Madison lashes back, believing Ian resents what she has found with Brady. He cuts her down, insisting she would be nothing without him. If she doesn’t get her act together, he’ll take her down along with Brady. Brady shows up to persuade Madison to be with him. Madison makes it clear she doesn’t think she and Brady were right for each other. She wounds Brady, hoping to protect him from Ian. She tells him he’s not enough of a challenge for her. She gives Brady back his engagement ring. Rocked, Brady takes the ring and leaves.

Austin balks at this, saying she’s with Rafe and it doesn’t take long for Abigail to realize there is trouble in paradise. She decides not to confess. She tries to get Austin to open up and says if Carrie is with another man, there’s no reason they can’t be together. Austin reacts and warns Abigail that he will never be with her. Melanie is miffed Chad hasn’t shown up for dinner. With encouragement from Kayla she tries to call him but gets no answer. Meanwhile, Chad is unaware that Gabi had deleted Melanie’s message about dinner and is grabbing a bite with her instead. While he isn’t looking, Gabi turns off his phone, allowing them time to bond. Later, Melanie walks by and wonders why Chad never got back to her. Chad explains he never got her message and they end up leaving together while a jealous Gabi stews.

As soon as Sami gets home from a business trip, Kate forces her to burn the midnight oil in order to find their mole. This unnerves Sami, but she’s more put out that Billie has joined the company as co-CEO and that she can’t go home to see her kids. Kate rubs salt in her wounds and tells Sami that she and Billie will take the kids to dinner and tuck them in. Later, Billie asks Kate if she trusts Sami. Kate reveals Sami is the mole and she intends to blow her out of the water. EJ and Will are working when Lucas shows up and puts his foot down. He tells EJ he knows he’s blackmailing his son.

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
