DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

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.”

Courtesy/NBC

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?
