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

Who is DAYS Gwen Really? What is Her Vendetta Against Abigail All About?

We have a new psycho in Salem, and she is played to perfection by Emily O’Brien who has been bringing her brand of quirky evil to the NBC soap opera as Gwen.  Soap fans, of course, remember her as Jana Hawkes on The Young and the Restless from 2006-2011.

Ron Carlivati and his DAYS writing team certainly have some tricks up their sleeve where Gwen is concerned as viewers recently found out she was behind slipping Abigail (Marci Miller) the drug months ago causing her hallucinations.

But Gwen is even much darker than we think, when several key clues and moments were revealed on Friday’s episode of DAYS when she went to visit her conspirator in prison, Dr. Rolf (William Utay).

During the exchange, we learn Gwen has been getting the mind-altering drug from one of Dr. Rolf’s concoctions.  She reveals to him that their plan has hit the proverbial snag.  The drug did not dismantle Abigail as she had hoped.  We also learn while she was in the mental institution – Bayview – that is how she tracked Rolf down by researching the drug he had created.

And it appears, Rolf hates Abigail too, citing he always saw her as  thorn in Stefano’s side.  It is then Gwen says he wants another dose of the drug to “melt Abby’s brain!”  Rolf says without anyone else to take the fall for it, he can’t come up with it.

He suggests to her to alter her plan and to instead destroy Abigail’s life piece by piece … and go for the long game instead of the short term – take everything that is near and dear from her including her husband, children, home, everything.

But, what does come to light is that even Dr. Rolf does not know why Gwen wants to destroy Abigail.  That is when Gwen shares she has very good reason to hate Abigail, and he, along with everyone else, will find out why when the time is right.

So, what are your theories?  Who is Gwen?  Is she a character with plastic surgery?  Could she be a sister no one knew Abigail had?  A former mental patient who Abby knew when she was getting help a few years back? And what is her gripe with Abigail all about?  Comment below!

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).

Photo: JPI

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.
