Brady makes plans for romance with Arianna. Before things can take off, however, Gabi tracks down Arianna and needs her help with a school assignment. Arianna agrees to help, and she and Gabi take off. Later, Brady is amazed to find Nicole at his door, pleading for help. The connection between them remains, but Nicole pushes too far and Brady throws her out. At the Brady Pub, Nicole makes Arianna think something more went on. After Arianna goes to find Brady, Gabi confronts Nicole about her wicked ways. Baker is about to skip town when Hope finds him. He isn’t going anywhere. Hope reveals more of her new persona as she puts the screws to Baker. She opens up to him a bit and Baker eventually decides to stay in town and continue to work with Hope. Later, they attack Brady in the park. Stephanie realizes something is bothering Philip, but when she confronts him, he blows her off and leaves. Stephanie confides in Adrienne about Philip’s sudden attitude change. She fears that he has done something to jeopardize his marriage, which could result in Melanie rushing back to Nathan. Adrienne advises her not to worry so much, but Stephanie refuses to sit back and lose Nathan. Alone on the pier, she tosses her birth control in the trash. Nathan knows of Chloe’s affair, so is uneasy about her being with Daniel. Melanie and Carly discuss whether or not Chloe is truly the one for Daniel, and they share a nice moment. Meanwhile, the motel clerk convinces Chloe that someone, possibly Carly, must have been playing with her mind. They wanted her to think Daniel slept with Carly. Later, the motel clerk takes a call from Vivian and tells her Chloe has taken the bait. Vivian is pleased. Later, Melanie overhears Philip trying to warn Chloe about staying away from Carly and wonders what is up with that. At the same time, Chloe comes home to find Carly and loses it. She says she knows what Carly is doing to her and Daniel!   Hope takes her game to the next level as she marks her victim, Brady, with a distinctive symbol. Baker, meanwhile, pockets Brady’s expensive money clip. Hope goes home and self-medicates into a slumber. Roman and Carly find the mark on Brady’s chest. Roman realizes the mugger is trying to tell them something.

Arianna is upset that she can’t find Brady while Gabi and Nicole exchange words. When Nicole tries to leave, an injured Brady stumbles into her arms. Nicole is tender with him, and she and Gabi get him to the hospital. Arianna finally arrives, and Nicole notes how she doesn’t have an alibi. Chloe is ripping into Carly when Daniel comes home. After Carly leaves for work, Chloe lays out the whole sordid motel tale for Daniel, who is reeling. He is sure Carly didn’t do what Chloe thinks she did, but he figures she must have a legitimate reason for believing it. Together, they track down the motel clerk, who lies and says he’s never seen Chloe. Vulnerable, Chloe asks Daniel if he believes her, and he assures her that he does, but privately, he’s not sure what to think. Philip covers his guilt about sleeping with Chloe. He tells Melanie about Chloe’s hysterical pregnancy. Later, Melanie and Philip make love. Stephanie has thrown away her birth control pills and banishes all doubts about her plan as she and Nathan make love. However, someone find her pills in the trash… Sami picks up EJ from the hospital and is taking him home, but runs into Roman along the way. She tells him that she’s moving in with EJ. Roman thinks it’s a terrible idea. He asks her about Rafe. Sami explains she’s not sure when Rafe is coming back. EJ assures Roman that Sami will be fine, but he isn’t sold on the idea.

Kate overhears Stefano talking about Anna, but she doesn’t pursue it. Later, Sami and EJ arrive and Stefano welcomes them home. Sami and Kate have some words about Will, while Stefano assures EJ that Anna is tucked away. She won’t cost him anything with Sami. After a fight with Kate, Sami tells EJ she can’t live in the mansion. It’s a terrible idea. Anna is living the high albeit boring life in South America when she runs into Calliope Jones Bradford! Anna is shocked and even more so when it appears Calliope knows nothing about her taking Sydney. Calliope and Eugene are having tax troubles and are evading the IRS. She wonders if Anna is in trouble, too. Anna says she’s sort of trying to figure out her next step, whatever that may be. Calliope wants to hang out, but Anna is reluctant. Calliope leaves. Later, a guilty Calliope meets with Rafe. She’s made contact. Victor and Vivian dote on Brady. Victor vows to get to the bottom of his attack. Arianna shows up still feeling guilty that she wasn’t with Brady. Later, Nicole and Brady bond. Alone, Nicole expresses her hatred for Arianna and Vivian overhears. Vivian warns Arianna to be careful of Nicole. She’s definitely competition. Meanwhile, Nicole learns about an illegal gambling ring and wants to check it out for a story. Hope wakes up rested, but is thrown to find her make-up out. She talks to Ciara about it. She thinks her mommy left it out. Hope has a heart –to-heart with her daughter and tells her that if she wants to use her make-up she is more than happy to have a dress up night with her. Hope receives a call from Roman about Brady. She goes to the station and finds Victor. He thinks Hope is the wrong person for the case because of her responsibilities with Ciara. Hope disagrees. Roman shows her the symbol that was placed on Brady and Hope knows what it is. Hope asks Brady if a woman attacked him. She believes it was.

Rafe wires Calliope to work Anna and get her to confess the details of Sydney’s kidnapping. Calliope almost blows it, but finally wears Anna down and gets her to agree to tell her everything. Rafe listens in, hoping against hope that Anna will confess. Sami remembers EJ kissing her and decides she can’t live at the mansion after all. She goes, and EJ is devastated. Stefano tells him not to give up. He has a feeling Sami will be back. Just as Stefano predicted, Sami returns. A water pipe broke in her townhouse and it is too flooded to live there. Without much of a choice, Sami agrees to move into the mansion. EJ realizes Stefano was behind this. After Sami has it out with Will about living there, she turns to EJ for comfort and finally tells him about the kiss he doesn’t remember. Kate finds an old photo of herself and Madeline. Will accidentally gets a hold of the picture, and he and Chad realize that the two women used to be friends. Chad confronts his mom about it after Madeline tells him to stay away from Will. Madeline covers with Chad, but later, has it out with Kate over her son and Will seeing the picture. She threatens that Kate and Stefano have a lot more to lose than she does if their past comes out. Arianna and Gabi share sisterly moments. Arianna calls Rafe to find out how his investigation is going and she’s hopeful that if he solves Sydney’s kidnapping, he’ll get back with Sami. Gabi meets up with Chad and they talk about his mom. Chad decides to find out the connection between his mom and the DiMeras.

EJ is astonished to learn that he kissed Sami on the night he was mugged. He apologizes, and assures her he has no memory of the event. Unaware that EJ is hiding his true feelings; Sami swallows her own discomfort and goes for a family swim with him and Johnny. After the swim, the sexual tension between Sami and EJ is palpable, and it appears they will kiss. Calliope extracts the kidnapping tale from Anna and reports to Rafe that she’s got her confession on tape. Unfortunately, in her rattled state, she hasn’t gotten any information about an accomplice. Rafe sends her back in to get what he needs. Calliope’s persistent questions arouse Anna’s suspicions. Melanie finds Stephanie’s birth control pills in the possession of a homeless woman who was brought into the hospital. Melanie confronts Stephanie, who lies that she lost the pills. Melanie doesn’t believe her. Melanie contemplates telling Nathan, but when she seeks advice from Brady, he advises her against it. Later, Stephanie is angry when she checks up on Brady and realizes Melanie told him. Meanwhile, Melanie runs into Nathan and it appears she’s about to tell him the truth. Victor is upset about Brady’s mugging and vows revenge. He and Maggie wind up visiting Brady at the same time, and she is moved by his obvious compassion for his grandson. She asks him to drive her home and tells him she’s decided to help him mend fences with Philip. After arriving home, Maggie has a spell and collapses in Victor’s arms.

Days of our Lives Concludes Special Episode In Loving Memory of Bill Hayes

You needed the hankies for Wednesday’s February 21st episode of Days of our Lives in more ways then one. The highly-touted show featured newly created flashbacks of a young Tom (Zach Chyz) and Alice Horton (Sydney Kathrann Smith) eventually moving into to their dream house.

But as viewers saw in recent episodes, the Horton house was burned to the ground thanks to an unnamed arsonist. Today, marked the first time that Doug (the late Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) returned to see the ashes of the home they all lived in at one time or another and where they all share so many memories with the Horton family.

In addition, Leo (Greg Rikaart) decides to do a story for the Spectator on the Horton family and visited the rubble, where Julie recited the family history and the ups and downs, and yes, some of the zany plots the Horton children and grandchildren found themselves in over the years.

There was also use of flashbacks where characters such as: Julie, Marlena (Deidre Hall), Maggie, and perhaps most touching, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), recalled times with Tom (the late MacDonald Carey) and Alice (the late Frances Reid). Knowing that Bill Hayes has left us, and then preparing ourselves for which will soon be the airing of his last episode, made this all the more emotional.

And, at the conclusion of the episode, and after the final flashback of young Tom and Alice Horton, Days of our Lives paid tribute to Bill Hayes and dedicated the episode to him. A title card came up that expressed: “In loving memory” of Bill Hayes with the touching words from Hamlet, “Good night, sweet prince; and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”

Meanwhile. on the Hayes’ Instagram account, Susan Seaforth Hayes shared behind-the-scenes photos from today’s episode accompanied by her words, “Thank you for loving this lovable cast. We all, fans and actors, are a family! Onward to stories about us, eh?”

So, what did you think about today’s episode of Days of our Lives being dedicated and in honor of Bill Hayes? What did you think about the flashbacks from the past and the newly created ones as part of the story? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jada Reveals Everett Is Her Ex-Husband Bobby Stein

On Monday’s February 19th episode of Days of our Lives, viewers are getting closer to the root of the story of Everett Lynch (Blake Berris).  There has been speculation for months as to just how the talented Blake Berris’ new character would be … a good guy, or a bad guy. But, what if he is actually both?

In story, Jada (Elia Cantu) and Rafe (Galen Gering) are at the Brady Pub and she comes upon on Everett with Stephanie (Abigail Klein) and freaks out. She reveals that Everett is her ex-husband Bobby Stein! Everett denies even knowing Jada and thinks she is mentally unstable or something. Jada even shows him a photo of her with him (sans his beard) from her phone. Everett throws it off as everyone in the world has a doppelgänger.

Jada accuses Everett of gaslighting her. She goes into the back-story of when she discovered he cheated on her, and she served him with divorce papers, but he turned into a “ghost.” Everett stands by his claim that the two of them were never married.

Stephanie flashes back to Everett revealing he had retrograde amnesia when he initially came out of his coma citing maybe that’s the reason he doesn’t remember Jada.  Next, Jada goes off on him saying she can tell by the look in his eyes, he knows exactly who she is.  Jada warns Stephanie to not get ‘sandbagged’ by this guy any longer. She then threatens Everett that he will be found out and get what he deserves. Next, she torms out of the pub as Rafe follows her.

Alone with Everett, Stephanie becomes upset having a few more startling realizations. First she asks Everett, “Are you really not Bobby Stein?” He admits to having gaps in his memory, but not years of relationships or marrying someone.

Then, in another flashback, Stephanie remembers Everett telling her he bought an engagement ring before his accident. Then, Stephanie recalls a conversation with Jada how she found a large credit card charge from a jewelry store and that Bobby hadn’t bought anything for her in several months.

Stephanie is shocked, and tells Everett if Jada is telling the truth, and he’s really Bobby Stein, than she’s actually the other woman!  Next, Stephanie decides to leave, while Everett says this makes no sense, and they should talk about.

So, what do you think of this story … that it appears Bobby Stein is also Everett Lynch? What do you think will eventually be revealed? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: The Iconic Horton House Burns to the Ground; Harris Clings to Life After Being Shot

There was plenty of evil intent on Monday’s February 13th episode of Days of our Lives.  First, fans were not happy that the series chose to burn to a crisp the beloved Horton home that has been the centerpiece of the show since 1965.

The Horton house is where Tom (MacDonald Carey) and Alice Horton (Frances Reid) lived and raised their family for decades. All of the Horton family Christmas ornament hangings have been held in that set, and so much more.

In story, a masked man pours gasoline all over the inside of the Horton living room then sets it on fire and exits. When the fire alarm goes off, Chad (Billy Flynn) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) come downstairs to find the place torched. In short order, Doug (the late Bill Hayes) and Julie, Chad and his children, all make it to safety outside and watch the iconic home burn.

Julie is overcome with emotion. She cries out about all the history there is in the home as firefighters work to extinguish the fire. Doug tells Julie that the important thing is that they’re all safe, but Julie watches almost half her life go up in smoke!  Meanwhile, Thomas (Cary Christopher) asks Chad about the pictures of his mommy! Chad is about to respond his son, but gets a call with a voice which has been altered saying. “Maybe next time you’ll listen.”

Any Days of our Lives fans, we are sure, had trouble with the decision to torch the Horton home. Hopefully, as previewed, this will give Julie at least a story as she is determined to rebuild the home in upcoming episodes.

Elsewhere, there were gunshots and wounds and a near-death situation for Harris Michaels (Steve Burton) after he was shot. Ava (Tamara Braun) finds Harris outside the Bistro, bleeding out. She flashes back to Harris telling her that he loves her.

Tripp, Wendy (Victoria Grace) and Stefan (Brandon Barash) come upon Ava and Harris. Next, Tripp goes into doctor mode.  Ava cries that this wasn’t supposed to happen. Stefan asks what she meant by that and she responds, “nothing.” When Rafe (Galen Gering) and Jada (Elia Cantu) arrive on the scene, Rafe gets a call about the shooting at the Brady Pub.  Later, they check Harris’ room and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) reveals he thinks Clyde is responsible for the shooting and that he was coming after him.

Outside the bistro, as the paramedics arrive, Tripp loses Harris’ pulse and starts chest compressions. After awhile, they get Harris to breath again and he is taken away.

So what did you think about the torching of the Horton home? Did it upset you? With Steve Burton exiting Days of our Lives on-screen, which was originally believed to be in the spring, will Harris make a full recovery? Comment below.
