As part of the ISA plan to rattle Stefano, Billie tells EJ that his father was responsible for the tip that led to the charges against John being dropped. EJ is furious since Stefano had previously denied this accusation. He goes to confront him, and Stefano finally admits the truth. EJ warns he still intends to take control of the DiMera Empire even though he’s not a blood relative and will use every underhanded trick Stefano ever taught him to achieve his goal.  With the help of ISA technology, Hope uncovers a jeweler’s mark on Stefano’s half-coin. It belongs to an Italian jeweler who has served the DiMera family for generations. Hope and Bo tell Shane they want to go to Italy to get information from the jeweler about why this coin is so important to Stefano. Meanwhile, Stefano demands that Agent Harmon get the coin back from the ISA. Harmon heads to the ISA office … will he discover Bo and Hope?

Roman brings Austin to the safe house where he nearly walks in on Carrie and Rafe kissing. While Austin speaks with Carrie privately, Roman tells Rafe he should respect Carrie and Austin’s marriage and keep his distance from his daughter. Carrie makes another attempt to tell Austin she wants to end their marriage, but Roman interrupts before she gets the chance. Once alone, Rafe and Carrie agonize over hurting Austin, but also know in their hearts they must be together. Lexie watches as Cameron bonds with Theo. Cameron explains he worked with autistic children during his residency. Lexie asks her half-brother to be part of her son’s life after she’s gone. She regrets she won’t be able to offer Theo guidance in the future. Celeste and Cameron come up with an idea for Lexie to make a series of DVDs that Theo can watch as he grows older.

At ISA headquarters, Bo and Hope manage to hide just as Agent Harmon enters the office. They watch in frustration as he steals Stefano’s prized coin. Meanwhile, John and Marlena knock heads with Shane over how to defeat Stefano. When Bo and Hope report the coin is gone, everyone is rocked, knowing this is a game changer. Now that Stefano is in possession of it, he could leave town at any moment and their window of opportunity to bring him down could pass. After hearing Stefano is about to make a deal with an arms trafficker, they decide to set up a sting, feeding misinformation to Stefano via his spy. They hold their breath, praying this will work.  Sami tells Lucas she knows he took the fall for Will in EJ’s shooting. She’s not happy about being kept in the dark but she’s grateful for what he sacrificed for their son. When she learns Lucas has known all along that EJ was blackmailing Will, she explodes with anger. How could he keep that from her? Will walks in on this and is amused that his mother is angry with someone else for lying. It leads to a fight between them where their frustrations are all laid bare. As the tension rises, Will decides it’s finally time to come clean … and he reveals to his parents that he is gay!

Gabi realizes her lie about having a stalker is getting harder and harder to keep up. First, Will all but insists she get out of town until it’s resolved … which of course would leave Chad alone with Melanie. Gabi balks at this. Next, when she pretends she’s being followed, Melanie puts her foot down and says this is a job for the police. Gabi has to do some tap dancing to convince everyone not to go to the authorities. Even though she succeeds, she still has to watch as Melanie and Chad move off hand-in-hand. Maggie informs Melanie and Chad that she bought the day spa.  John, Bo and Hope explain their plan to Rafe – they are going to meet with Vladimir Nevsky, an international illegal arms dealer. Acting as prospective buyers, they want to outbid Stefano’s original offer. They know Stefano will catch wind of this, causing him to contact Nevsky, and then they will bust him for arms trafficking. They nervously wait to hear if Shane can set up a meeting. He does, and the four head off to meet with Nevsky, who is suspicious of their intentions. John manages to win him over. They are about to close the deal when Nevsky gets a text and has his men pull guns on the foursome. Nevsky says he knows who they are and why they are really here.

Sami and Lucas react in shock to Will’s admission that he is gay. Sami is particularly hard hit, not able to believe she didn’t know what her son was going through. Reeling from the shock and guilt, Sami flees, leaving a devastated Will.  Will and Lucas have a serious heart-to-heart about what Will has gone through. Lucas admits he’s disappointed because he imagined a different future for his son. Will assures his dad he can still be happy but then asks Lucas the key question – can his father accept him being gay? Meanwhile, Sami runs into EJ, who deduces that Will has come out. Sami confides that she feels like a terrible mother. How could she have not known? EJ is the voice of reason and gently points out she’s looking at this all wrong. She’s thinking of herself, not Will. She needs to be there for her son.  Earlier, EJ visits Nicole, hoping she will be more receptive to him now that Rafe is gone. Nicole insists she doesn’t want EJ in her life or in that of her baby’s. She still claims the child is Rafe’s. EJ refuses to let this go and warns he will always be a part of her life now that she’s carrying his child. He leaves Nicole shaken.

Madison, Kate and Brady prepare for an important meeting with Serge, the fashion editor. They want to convince Serge to promote the Mad World/Basic Black joint venture to make it a huge success. While no one is looking, Ian manages to slip drugs into Brady’s protein powder and shake. When Brady shows up at the pub, he is high as a kite and Nicole tries to stop him from going into the meeting. Brady gets past her and royally screws things up. Serge informs Kate and Madison he cannot support their project when Brady is such a liability. Later, furious Madison confronts Brady, asking if he’s drunk or high. Brady denies both. Ian shows up to check out his handiwork, and Brady is devastated that he’s ruined everything.  John, Bo, Hope and Rafe are held at gunpoint by the arms dealer, Nevsky, and his thugs, who have discovered their true identities. John and the others smoothly and cleverly talk Nevsky down by “explaining” their motives for wanting to outbid Stefano. John is a long-standing enemy of Stefano’s, Bo and Hope are disgruntled cops and Rafe is ex-FBI who also has a personal score to settle with DiMera. The dealer buys it. Before the sale actually takes place, John, Bo, Hope and Rafe overpower the mercenaries, arrest them, and prepare to carry out their sting on Stefano.

Sami continues to confide in EJ about the way she reacted to Will revealing he’s gay. EJ is supportive and encourages Sami to go back to Will and do what she should have done in the first place: tell him she loves him unconditionally. Sami thanks him and leaves to do exactly that.  Meanwhile, Will presses Lucas to answer his question: Does Lucas accept him being gay? Lucas says Will should never doubt that and tells a story from Will’s childhood, relating it to his current state. Will tells his father how he was able to confide in Marlena while he was going through all this. Sami returns to hear him praise Marlena. She lashes out at Will for confiding in Marlena instead of her. Will can’t believe his mother is making this about her, yet again. He storms out. Lucas tells Sami she has to fix this or she’s going to lose her son forever.

At the pub, Abe helps Lexie work on the next item on her “bucket list”: going to Paris with Chad, Melanie, Cameron and Celeste. During the planning, Lexie asks Kayla to please be there for Abe after she’s gone. Kayla promises. Abigail arrives and thinks what they’re doing is wonderful. She shares her love for Paris with Cameron, and they discover they have a lot of favorite places in common. Chad and Melanie see their growing attraction and, playing matchmaker, they suggest Abigail come along. In a moment alone, Celeste reminds Cameron to be careful … she sees danger surrounding Abigail. EJ arrives and tells everyone he’s arranged for a private jet. A disappointed Lexie hears from her specialist that she’s not well enough to travel. Abe slips out with Chad, EJ and Cameron and after much mystery; they eventually bring Lexie to the town square which has been transformed into a replica of Paris. Lexie is thrilled and beyond touched.

John, Bo, Hope and Rafe have all donned disguises in anticipation of Stefano’s arrival. Bo, taking the lead, wears an electronic voice-altering device to pass as the arms dealer Stefano was supposed to meet. A furious Stefano arrives, having heard that someone was trying to outbid him. Bo gets him to confess his intention to buy illegal arms and then re-sell them. Having gotten his confession on tape, the group reveals themselves and Stefano is arrested. Carrie continues to confide in Marlena about wanting to be with Rafe once they come out of hiding from Stefano. Carrie feels a bit nauseous and Marlena shocks her by suggesting she may be pregnant. Sami and Lucas discuss how she has to do everything she can to make things right with Will. She has to let him know she loves him and accepts him being gay. They also argue a bit about how much time she seems to spend with EJ.

At the town square, Abe and Lexie enjoy the recreation of a night in Paris with their friends and family. Abigail and Cameron continue to grow closer – much to Celeste’s dismay. Gabi arrives and hates seeing Chad and Melanie together. She plays the “stalker” card to turn their attention away from each other and onto her. Abigail remains suspicions about Gabi. Lexie and EJ talk about Nicole, and Lexie hopes he’ll find true love soon. Sami happens by and EJ asks how it went with Will. Sami admits not so good. EJ tells her she can’t give up and as he provides support, Lucas moves in and sees them together.  Maggie has arranged a private dinner to celebrate Victor’s birthday. Lucas drops by to wish him well. He also thanks Maggie for never judging him and helping him during what was probably the hardest time of his life. While Maggie sees him out, Henderson comments on Victor’s happiness. Victor thinks of how he gave Maggie’s stolen eggs to Daniel’s parents and hopes his wife never learns the truth. Maggie, having heard, confronts him: “The truth about what? “

Thanks to spoilers, not as excited as I would have been about Stefano’s arrest. Liked the team effort of Bo, Hope, John, and Rafe at the warehouse.
Chandler continues to shine as Will. Loved that Lucas and Will are reconnecting.
Can’t warm up to Cameron. No offense to Schylur Yancey, but I wish he would go away, and take Gabi with him!

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abigail Reveals Gwen’s Deception at her Wedding to Xander, But Gwen Drops A Bombshell

Look like Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) finally got what’s coming to her, or at least for now.  On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives it was wedding couple number two who took front and center stage.

Now, Xander (Paul Telfer) and Gwen were ready to start their nuptials, following the disaster of the first couple’s attempt at tying the knot (Leo and Craig) and that coming apart at the seams.

Photo: JPI

However, this wedding was not meant to be either, thanks to Abigail (Marci Miller) having the ammo (thank to a plea deal for Ava Vitali) to bring Gwen’s heinous plot out in the open, publicly.  That included: Gwen’s plans to nab Xander for herself and keep his true love, Sarah, away from him by any means possible as all was revealed to the groom and Gwen’s father, Jack (Matthew Ashford).  From kidnapping, drugging Sarah, wearing masks, being an accomplice to Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) schemes etc, etc, Abigail had the quite the dirt on her half-sister.

In the end, Xander walks out on Gwen, Jack practically disowns her, Abigail and Jennifer stand by and take Gwen’s insults knowing they have finally one-upped her, and Gwen is in a puddle of tears in her wedding dress.

Just then, Gwen gets one more visitor, Rafe (Galen Gering)! He comes to cuff-her and bring her down to the police station for her crimes.  Before she leaves, she angrily gets close to Abigail and whispers in her ear that she purposely killed her grandmother! That means that Gwen killed Laura Horton in cold blood.  What will Abigail do with his information?

Emily O’ Brien has been consistently knocking it out of the park playing all the levels of Gwen, while Marci Miller was fierce with her controlled and contained payback after all Gwen has put Abigail through. Perhaps, there is yet another knock-down drag-out fight to go down between the two in the near future?  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of Abigail’s comeuppance of Gwen for her crimes? Are you happy Xander walked out on her? What do you think will happen next involving the information on Gwen murdering Laura Horton? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Leo’s Nuptials to Craig Hits the Skids Thanks to Jackie Cox’s Bombshell

Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives was filled with hilarious one-liners and great comedic timing from Greg Rikaart as Leo Stark, a surprise guest at the double wedding of Leo to Craig (Kevin Spirtas) and Gwen (Emily O’Brien) to Xander (Paul Telfer), and more.

As the ceremony begins, Brady (Eric Martsolf) has asked Justin (Wally Kurth), who is officiating the double wedding, to stall and stretch things out as long as possible so that hopefully Chad (Billy Flynn) has time to get back to Salem with the intel to blow up Leo and Craig’s union.

Craig’s ex-wife, Nancy (Patrika Darbo) attends as well, and without Clyde (James Read) which was not expected.  Nancy met Clyde the other day on a dating app with plans she would take someone with her to the wedding, but when she shows up alone, she tells Bonnie (Judi Evans) she thought it best that Craig and everyone see she had the strength to stand on her own.

After Jack (Matthew Ashford) walks Gwen down the aisle, Leo enters in one of the great entrances of any wedding in Days history.  Posing for the paparazzi, Leo has his big moment in the sun as Gwen and “Matty” (Leo’s supposed nickname) relish the moment.

Now, Justin has to start the ceremony (in a very funny comedic turn from Wally Kurth) while continuing to stall and come up with ways to delay the wedding of Leo and Craig.  First, he asks if anyone objects and Nancy stands up, but all she does is wish Craig all the happiness in the world.  Once she sits down, Justin goes around the room and starts talking about all the guests.  Then, with nothing left to do, Justin starts having a sneezing attack while trying to get to the wedding vow portion of the ceremony.  Now, as Justin is declaring the men ‘husbands” running in to save the day is Chad, followed by Jackie Cox!

Photo: JPI

It is then Cox reveals that he is married to Matthew Cooper AKA Leo Stark, complete with a wedding certificate.  Then, Jackie turns from drag queen to his real self, Darius Rose.  Leo says he married Darius to keep him in the country from Canada and for Darius to get his green card.

Chloe jumps up and declares that this is bigamy! Craig wants to understand what is going up, but he claims he understands why Leo did it. Justin says that there is no way he can sanction the wedding and it will take a few days to unravel all of this.  Then, Darius reveals Leo’s relationship to Craig is one big ‘flim-flam’.

Photo: JPI

Wanting to tell the truth, Darius reveals that Leo targeted Craig once he saw Craig at a medical convention. He shares he has all the texts saved from Leo, and the two of them were planning on splitting all the money Leo would inherit, but he was unaware of the pre-nup.

Leo reveals that it was his original plan, but along the way he says he fell in love with Craig. However, when Craig asks when that was, Leo could not quite pinpoint it.  Craig walks out on Leo, as Leo begs for forgiveness.

Later, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) finds her father alone in his hotel room and he breaks down in her arms, while Leo tries to see Craig and is blocked by Brady.

And if all that is not enough, just wait! It’s Gwen’s turn to get what’s coming to her since now Abigail is armed with ammo to blow her life sky high.

So, what did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy the writing and the performances and how Craig and Leo’s marriage attempt went bust … Or, did you not like how it all played out? Comment below.
