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: Sonny and Will Say Their Final Goodbyes and Leave Salem

Not a happy day for fans of Days of our Lives’ WilSon.  Although it has been known now for over seven months that Daytime Emmy-winners, Chandler Massey (Will) and Freddie Smith (Sonny) were let-go from the long-running NBC soap opera, it still was hard to watch them have their final scenes on Tuesday’s episode.

As was in the dialogue, the writers and the show left the door open for a Sonny and Will return down the line when Sonny uttered: “Goodbye Salem, for now.” And, as is with most DAYS characters, they seem to somehow return at one time or another.  But still, it looks like the soap has made the decision to rest the characters.

Before their final exit, Sonny and Will had a visit with Sami (Alison Sweeney) to tell her they are moving to Arizona. Sami is up to her eyeballs in trouble with the custody hearing for Allie’s baby versus Nicole (Arianne Zucker).  Will tells his mother he wants her blessing before they go, and that he already received a blessing from Marlena (Deidre Hall).

An emotional Sami tells Will how sorry she is for all the things she has done, and the mistakes she had made when she was younger and along the way that impacted him.  In tears, Will says he is going to miss her, and the two of then share a hug,

After Sami leaves to head to the custody hearing, Will and Sonny look at Allie’s baby and the two talk about how things worked out for the best; even though Allie did not ultimately let them adopt her child.  The two realize they are about to give their daughter, Ari, a new life and Will thinks another baby and a dog might be in their future, too!

Later, it’s time for one last look at Horton Town Square, and Sonny and Will remember their love from the beginning in a short flashback with a few moments of how they came together.

Will says it’s a tradition for when a Horton leaves Salem to visit the dedication to Tom and Alice in the ‘Square’.  Finally, it’s time for Sonny and Will to say goodbye to Salem for now as they walk out together..

So, what did you think of the final episode of Chandler and Freddie’s? Did you want more time spent on WilSon’s history in the flashback montage? Are you sad to see them go? Comment below.

DAYS Rob Scott Wilson Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

If you think you were emotionally drained watching Ben Weston battle himself for control – think of how draining it must have been for Ben’s portrayer, actor Rob Scott Wilson, or for the character of Ben himself!

Well, in the final three episodes last week on Days of our Lives, Rob Scott Wilson once again showed why he is in complete command of this complex character – a former serial killer who has fought so hard to redeem himself, married the love of his life, Ciara (Vicroria Konefal), only to have it all almost wiped out by a heinous plot by Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva).

Eve used drugs and torture techniques to try to drive Ben to kill Ciara as payback for him murdering her daughter, Paige (True O’Brien).  Weston was supported by some very fine scene partners in his performances: the aforementioned DePaiva, Konefal, and Kristian Alfonso (Hope); but it was Rob who drove the scenes and had the meatiest of material to play and boy, did he deliver.

Would Ben strangle his beloved Ciara with a necktie like his other previous victims? Wilson went from one minute being programmed to kill her, to another minute realizing he is in trouble … and so is Ciara’s life – so he tells her to lock the door of the bathroom and to not let him in! Although, as we saw, he eventually lost control and broke through the door and went to turn the lock reaching his hand from the outside to the inside. (Horror film moment!)

Later, when we see Ben crumpled on the floor in tears, Hope finds him, but her daughter is missing and Ben can’t recall what happened to her.  Fearing at first she killed Ciara, Hope is besides herself, and so is Ben.

From beat to beat, from turn to turn, Wilson was terrifying and heartbreaking all at the same time.  And with that, Michael Fairman TV names Rob Scott Wilson our choice for the Power Performance of the Week.

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

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
