Sami, Rafe and Will are shocked and overjoyed by Sydney’s return. Caroline and Roman hear the commotion and can’t believe it. EJ found Sydney! Rafe learns that EJ went behind his back. Rafe and Roman get a lead that confirms EJ’s story. EJ defies instructions and takes the child home where Sami hears her call him daddy. Sami is surprised Sydney remembers him, but dismisses it. Later, Rafe arrives, and chews them out for not taking Sydney to the hospital first. Through a slew of excuses, Rafe realizes that Sami knew about the latest ransom note. Melanie rejects Daniel, but he refuses to take no for an answer and the two finally come together. However, Melanie admits she hates Carly even more. Nathan attacks Carly, but is conflicted himself. Stephanie confides in Caroline, but remains convinced she has done the right thing in not giving Nathan Melanie’s letter. Philip wonders if Chloe is upset that she cannot be a mother especially now that Daniel is a father, but she dismisses this. Carly reaches out to Melanie, to no avail. Nathan finds an emotional Melanie, and the feelings between them are electric. Stefano and Kate arrive home to find Sydney alive and well. EJ won’t let Stefano near Sydney. After Rafe and Sami take Sydney to the hospital, EJ and Stefano fight and Kate tries to play peacemaker. She says EJ can’t keep Sydney away from Stefano as long as they all live under the same roof. This gives EJ an idea. Sámi confirms to Rafe that she knew about the latest ransom note and kept it from him. She expects Rafe to blow up, but he doesn’t, which is worse to her, because she can see how deeply she hurt him. He goes into FBI mode and insists they take Sydney to the hospital and find the kidnapper. Sami leaves with Rafe, but still can’t get him to open up. When EJ arrives later at the hospital, Sami admits she thinks she blew it with Rafe. EJ asks if he could spend the night with her. Rafe walks in and overhears. Melanie unloads emotionally on Nathan. At the same time, Stephanie confesses to Lexie that she’s done something maybe she shouldn’t have. Meanwhile, Melanie reacts to Nathan’s comfort, and says he doesn’t have to do it because he feels guilty about not reading her letter. Nathan asks her what she’s talking about. Melanie tries to tell him but he’s called away for a patient before she can. Melanie realizes Stephanie never gave the letter to Nathan. When Stephanie comes to visit her, Melanie rips into her. Melanie and Stephanie have it out. Melanie knows Stephanie never gave Nathan the letter. Stephanie tries to cover, but Melanie tells her to stop it. The girls argue and Stephanie tells Melanie that Nathan didn’t want to hear about her. He has moved on with Stephanie. She scolds that even if Melanie wanted to be with Nathan, how could she break Philip’s heart? Affected, Melanie is at a loss for words. Maggie meets with Nathan to tell him that she thinks her myasthenia gravis has returned, but she keeps quiet when she senses her grandson isn’t doing well. She questions and he admits it’s because of Melanie. Maggie calls him on this and guesses he still has feelings for her. Nathan admits it’s true. She said she sent him a letter and he can only guess it was to tell him how she felt. Part of him wishes he had stopped her wedding. Maggie tells Nathan that Melanie is married to Philip. What about Stephanie? Nathan agrees that it’s time to truly give up on Melanie, but he’s still privately conflicted. He goes to see Melanie, but finds her asleep. Stephanie calls Nathan, and both of them know they need to talk. Later, Maggie is at home and she falls. She fears the worst. EJ has asked Sami if he could spend the night. He wants to be there for his children and their mother. This rattles Sami and Rafe, after overhearing, is a bit bothered. He focuses on the aftermath of Sydney’s rescue. Lexie presents Sydney with a clean bill of health and EJ is questioned. Sami tells Abe about the video of Sydney and Rafe wants to view the video for a possible lead on the kidnappers. Will and Mia fold in to the group, also happy to see Sydney. They go home, and Sami thinks Rafe is going to stay, but he’s got work to do. He leaves her alone with EJ and her kids. Sami admits her relationship with Rafe worries her and EJ, playing the father role, places a blanket around Sami and Sydney. At the same time, Rafe uncovers phone numbers to EJ’s cell and he has the first step in finding the kidnappers. Mia is thinking about Chad when Will shows up and kisses her. He tells her about Sydney and they go to the hospital. Later, Will gives her a St. Christopher medal that will signify their exclusiveness. She accepts it, buts is still conflicted. Sami wakes up with her daughter in her arms, but there’s no sign of Rafe. He’s been working all night trying to track the kidnapper. EJ and Sami bond over the baby. Later, EJ visits Anna, who is packing up, and explains his decision to stay in town and break Sami’s heart. Arianna goes to see her brother and urges him to forgive Sami. Brady sees Sami and takes Rafe’s side. Later, Sami goes to Rafe’s office to make amends, but he is distracted as he gets a lead. Brady crosses with Chloe and asks her a huge favor. Chloe goes to see Nicole in prison and tells her Sydney is alive. We see Nicole’s relief, but she knows she has to move on. She’s carving out a place for herself in prison, and we see her hatred for those she has left behind, especially Sami and EJ. Nicole recalls seeing the kidnapper’s boots, but sadly she doesn’t think anyone will ever know who took the baby. Arianna visits Melanie and talks about her regret about turning down Brady’s marriage proposal. She’s hoping Brady will propose again, and indeed, Brady tells Daniel that is his plan. Brady is on his way to meet with Arianna while she crosses with EJ and expresses her sincere gratitude for what he did to bring Sydney home. Daniel comes across Melanie who is feeling blue. He is at a loss as to how to comfort her. He seeks out Maggie’s advice, and she gives him much needed encouragement. Daniel realizes Maggie is ill and convinces her to have a check-up. Later, Maggie learns her myasthenia gravis is back. Daniel urges her to tell Melanie. She does, and Melanie expresses her desire to be there for Maggie as Maggie has always been there for her. Sami insists Rafe talk to her about how he feels. Rafe admits he’s hurt, but the love they have for each other overcomes the problems in their relationship. Sami, however, is sure that her betrayal of trust will come back to haunt them. Rafe gets the address of a dwelling that fits the kidnapper’s profile. He tells Sami they will talk later and rushes out. Sami returns home and tells EJ that she damaged her relationship with Rafe by having kept the secret from him. EJ advises her to concern herself with her daughter and nothing else. He “believes” she and Rafe will work out just fine. Meanwhile, Anna can’t find her boots, and lies to EJ about missing her plane. When she finally finds them she realizes they don’t fit in her suitcase. Later, Rafe enters the cottage.

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.”

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?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.
