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.
