Sami catches Rafe2 giving Johnny some shocking advice and it seems like she can no longer accept him for who he is. “Rafe” tells Sami that Johnny needs to know how to fight for protection. Later, Sami questions Johnny, who likes Rafe the way he is, but Sami feels the opposite. At the police station, Rafe2 looks up an old picture of himself from his criminal days. Daniel realizes Carly is stills hurting over Bo. Daniel goes to Bo and chews him out a bit, which Bo takes like a man. Adrienne tells Jennifer that Justin proposed. Jennifer gets upset over Jack. Later, she runs into Daniel, and he gets her to play darts and the two have a great time. Nathan tells Maggie about things being over between him and Melanie. Elsewhere, Melanie tells Carly the same. While Melanie seems more at peace than ever, Nathan is feeling more persistent. He stops by to see Melanie, but Carly makes it clear he should not do it again. Nathan, however, believes it’s not over for them. Will and Gabi confront Kinsey about Gabi’s stolen earrings, and Bo has to stop the girls from fighting. Kinsey explains she bought them at the local pawn shop. After Kinsey storms off, Will and Gabi feel the need to do some investigating of their own. Meanwhile, the thief’s crime spree continues. Later, Will convinces the pawn broker to let them see the tape and Gabi gasps, claiming she knows the person. At the pier, the thief spots Melanie, and the expensive necklace she is wearing. Sami opens up to Brady about how troubled she is about “Rafe” encouraging Johnny to fight. Brady manages to convince Sami that Johnny just misunderstood. Sami goes with that, until Johnny says Rafe gave him boxing lessons and demonstrates. Sami brings the kids to Caroline, wanting to have it out with Rafe. She’s surprised to learn from Caroline that Rafe was at the Brady Pub earlier and was in a hurry to leave when he heard Sami was coming. Sami, her suspicions confirmed leaves to confront him. The thief tries to steal Melanie’s necklace from Carly. Melanie catches him red-handed and tries to call the police. As they struggle, Brady arrives to help Melanie. Later, at the police station, the thief enters in handcuffs. Meanwhile, Gabi and Will get the security video with the thief on it from the pawn broker. Gabi wants to show it to Rafe because he’ll know what to do about “him.” Gabi reveals to Will she knows the thief and she’s scared. When Rafe2 arrives at the station, the thief knows him, but “Rafe” has no idea who he is. Suddenly, Gabi shows up and cries out the thief’s name, Dario, just as Sami arrives in time to see Rafe2 looking like a deer in the headlights. Melanie and Brady share a close, sweet moment after her encounter with Dario.

Lexie questions Taylor about how wise it is for her to be moving in with Nicole and EJ, giving the feelings Taylor has for EJ. Taylors insists it’s something she must do for her mother, and her sister – regardless of her feelings for EJ. Meanwhile, EJ insists to Stefano that the real Rafe be moved out of the basement. Stefano doesn’t understand until Taylor arrives with her bags and Nicole informs him that Fay and Taylor are moving in. Nicole helps her sister unpack, and Taylor promises she won’t get in the way of Nicole and EJ. At the same time, Stefano confirms to EJ that Rafe will be out of the house by that night. Kate questions why EJ pushed for her to get Allie out of town. EJ covers, but Kate still senses something is up. She learns from Lexie that Taylor is moving in, and is irked by Lexie’s opinion of it.   Rafe2 realizes the thief who stole Gabi’s earrings is none other than “his” brother, Dario. Rafe2 covers passably well and calls Stefano for advice. Stefano orders him to come over for a refresher course in Rafe’s personal history and to limit contact in the meantime. Rafe2 tells Gabi his hands are tied to help Dario, and then he ensures that Melanie is on board with pressing charges. Sami and Dario both react to Rafe2’s brand of tough love. Sami feels she’s seeing glimpses of the old Rafe for the first time in a long time. A conversation with Will further convinces her, and Sami prays that the old Rafe has returned for good.

Stefano tells his henchman to take away the real Rafe’s belongings. Rafe, however, manages to palm his safe house key, knowing that it’s the only tie to his old life. Later, Rafe is led out of the cell for parts unknown. EJ, Taylor and Nicole make an uncomfortable threesome at the mansion as the sexual tension between Taylor and EJ mounts. Sleepless Taylor sneaks downstairs, thinking she’s alone, and winds up face-to-face with shirtless EJ. Later, EJ pauses outside of Taylor’s bedroom door, tempted to knock, but forces himself to resist. Brady brings Melanie home, and they bond. Daniel warns Chloe that he’s filing for divorce. Philip comforts Chloe. EJ and Taylor wind up alone in the mansion. Taylor finally asks EJ why he married her sister, but his answer about the children does not satisfy her. She believes in marrying for love. EJ thinks Nicole still feels for Brady. Upset Taylor makes it clear Nicole is falling for EJ. EJ touches her almost to quiet her and the charge is electric. Taylor seems ready to rebuff EJ, but as she tries to go, he grabs her and finally kisses her! While Rafe2 learns all he can about Dario, Gabi and Will enlist Justin’s help. The mystery of why Dario has been stealing, and why he’s in town, deepens. Rafe2 fears with Stefano that Dario is on to him. Meanwhile, Justin prepares to spring Dario, much to the fury of Melanie, who attacks the cocky young man. Melanie is forced to go, but vows to Will she will make Dario’s life hell. Meanwhile, Rafe2 is horrified when Gabi suggests Dario stay with him. Jennifer tells Abigail she is filing for divorce. Abigail is supportive, but she’s more upset than Jennifer knows, and it is strangely Chad who is there for her. A mix-up causes Daniel and Jennifer to get each other’s divorce papers. They find they enjoy the support since they’re both going through the same thing. Later, Jennifer kisses Daniel on the cheek in friendship, and he finally takes off his wedding ring.  Taylor finally pulls away from EJ’s kiss and slaps him. Nicole arrives and realizes something is wrong. EJ covers, saying he was just comforting Taylor about Fay. When EJ leaves, Nicole confronts Taylor, who doesn’t reveal what really happened. Nicole later calls Brandon and lies about how things are going with Taylor. Meanwhile, EJ apologizes to Taylor and insists it won’t happen again. He then claims the kiss wasn’t all that good. Privately, Taylor and EJ still yearn for each other.

While Daniel gives Sami some good advice about Rafe, Rafe2 uses Sami and the kids as an excuse not to help Dario. Gabi is upset. Rafe2 tries to shore things up first with Sami while professing deep love for his brother. Later, with EJ, he suggests they get rid of Dario. EJ rejects this idea. Meanwhile, Sami sees another side of Dario. She goes to see Rafe2 at the station, and announces she asked Dario to move in with them. Rafe2 loses it, and scares Sami by throwing his coffee against the wall. Melanie makes it clear to Nathan that it is over. He finally gets it and Daniel gives him strong advice about moving on, as well. Later, Nathan calls Johns Hopkins and wonders if the position he rejected is still open. Meanwhile, Melanie goes to see Rafe’s place and is shocked find to Dario has moved in. Justin and Adrienne plan their wedding, which even without their sons being able to make it, will be perfect.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena’s Exorcism Brings a United Front to Rid Satan

In a great episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it the return of Greg Vaughan as “Father” Eric Brady to exorcize the devil out of Marlena (Deidre Hall) for the second time in her lifetime, but it was not easy.

First, in the bedroom, Sami (Alison Sweeney) finds Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) almost untying the MarDevil, after Satan threatens him with revealing he was the one who kidnapped Sami and even tells Sami, that Lucas has been lying to her! Lucas worms his way out of the situation saying that he has been lying about his feelings for Sami.

Meanwhile, an overwrought John (Drake Hogestyn) is so happy to see Eric in his mother’s time of need.  When Eric takes off his coat, he reveals that he is once again a man of the cloth – priest collar and all.  Eric fills John in that it was actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) who made him come to the realization that he wanted to serve God again, when she told him that ‘collar or no collar, he has never changed.”

Next, Eric meets the MarDevil and tells John to leave him alone with Satan.  MarDevil spews that Eric is an arrogant little man and that he will die.  Now the MarDevil questions how his parishioners who saw the videotape of him having sex with Kristen – although Eric reminds Satan he was drugged – would welcome him as a priest?  Next thing you know, MarDevil shows the infamous sex tape on a laptop! Then, Satan said she thought his true calling was working in “adult entertainment” not for God.

Going for the jugular, MarDevil morphs into OG Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and she is tied to the bed, cooing for Eric, for another roll in the hay.  Eric becomes drawn in and if it were not for Brady (Eric Martsolf) walking in on the scene, urging his brother to resist the devil’s tricks, who knows where this would have led!  But Eric does resist, and MarDevil returns, saying that the fallen priest and his boozy brother are no match for her!

Now that the family is all congregating in the living room not only has Brady arrived, but so too has Belle (Martha Madison), Allie (Lindsay Arnold), and Johnny (Carson Boatman).  Eric explains that they all need to band together to perform an exorcism on Marlena and rid the devil from her.  Lucas exits deciding it should be for immediate family only, and he is already concerned that Satan knows he kidnapped Sami.

In the bedroom, Marlena’s family surrounds the bed as Eric begins the exorcism.  The family prays as Eric asks everyone to join hands and say the Lord’s Prayer.  As they begin the prayer, wind begins to blow and the bed goes up and down as MarDevil is defiant that Marlena will never return.  When the bed settles down, everyone thinks it’s over, but MarDevil surprises everyone and still has a grip on Marlena.

MarDevil then verbally attacks Belle and reminds her that she was the first one to give up on Marlena when she was in a coma and how she cheats on the men in her life calling her a “cheap slut”.  That is followed in kind when MarDevil goes after Sami and calls her a “professional slut”.

Eric insist the family talk directly to Marlena.  They all become a united front as MarDevil is struggling to maintain control.  Then, in a fantastic series of flashbacks, we see Marlena’s memories coming through of each of her family members – and of course, best one ever, of all-time, is John and Marlena reuniting on the pier.

You then hear MarDevil let out a scream “No!” and then she passes out.  After everything is once again still in the room. John sits next to Marlena and calls her “Doc”.  She wakes up, saved!  It’s the Marlena everyone knows and loves!  She is saved on Christmas.   We fade to black.

What did you think of Marlena’s exorcism 2.0 and the episode? Let us know in the comment section below.  But first, check out this tweet of the flashback memories contained with the episode as Marlena fights the devil!

‘Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas’: What Did You Think of the Holiday Tale?

Riffing on Hallmark Channel holiday movies combined with inside Salem wink-winks and nudge-nudges, soap tropes, surprise returns and altered storyline shifts, Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas now streaming on Peacock, had something for everyone, that by the end of its almost one hour and twenty minute tale, you were in the holiday spirit.

In the streaming flick, Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Grant Tinker) are working hard to make sure Will makes his Christmas Eve deadline of turning in his holiday script. So the couple known as “WilSon” conjure up an altered “facts” story… sorta!

Now, Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are running the Brady Pub, because Roman has died.  Paulina (Jackée Harry) is now the Cruella de Vil of Salem aiming to put everyone out of business for her own gain.

Sami learns that Sydney is her biological daughter (something that in the airshow happened years ago) in order for a redux of the classic bitch-slap scene between this version of evil Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sami.

Even though Nicole’s deception is revealed, she doesn’t end up completely alone after EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) dumps her for Sami.  A bum outside the Brady Pub hands her a tissue to wipe away her tears, and it’s revealed to be … Eric (Greg Vaughn in a cameo).

Elsewhere, John (Drake Hogestyn) is not married to Marlena (Deidre Hall), but Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and they run the Inn.  Meanwhile, as per usual, Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen are lusting after each other … complete with one of the best scenes in the special, where a naked Brady, covers his private parts with cue cards that profess his love for Kristen (a la Love Actually).  Meanwhile, Marlena is longing for John, even though he is with Kristen.

Paulina ‘s assistant turns out to be Leo (Greg Rikaart), and as he did in the previous Peacock streaming series … he saved the day! Leo, while going through files on Paulina’s desk, found a loophole that could save Salem business owners from being kicked to the curb.

And it was great to see one of the finest actors, Blake Berris, back on the screen as Nick and longing for Gabi (Camila Banus).  You see, Will writes Nick into his script, while Sonny exclaims that Nick is dead. But this is a holiday tale, so whatever!

In the end, it was the town pulling together for a holiday fundraiser to save themselves with a talent show hosted by Leo featuring: the return of Sonny Delight, Amanda Bottom and Belinda Chinashop, followed by a Santa strip from the hottest men in Salem and voila’ – it’s drag queens and half-naked guys that save the day!
