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.

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).

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.
