Vivian is pleased to learn Maggie and Victor have split. She goes to Maggie’s house to rub it in. Victor comes upon them and chastises Vivian, but Maggie is hurt anew when he quickly leaves afterwards. EJ explains to Stefano why he personally must be the one to eliminate the “imposter.” Stefano insists they hire someone else. EJ ignores his father and secretly uses a dirty cop to call Rafe and tell him Dario has been detained on the pier. EJ lies in wait for him with a gun. When he hears footsteps, he moves to confront him and is stunned to come face-to-face with Taylor instead. Rafe finds Fay’s cameo in the imposter’s duffel bag and wonders to whom it belonged. Nicole drops by the loft and is surprised Rafe is back. He’s stunned to learn “he” (the imposter) kissed Nicole. Later, Nicole asks Stefano what he intends to do about Rafe. Stefano shuts her down.

Daniel tells Victor he plans to take things slow with Jennifer. Meanwhile, Jennifer tells Abigail she looks forward to doing just the opposite. Daniel arrives at Jennifer’s and is surprised by her new, sexy look. He’s even more surprised (and puzzled) by her seductive behavior as she insists they have an intimate dinner at home. Later, Daniel gets beeped and tells Jennifer he has to go to the hospital. He gives her a peck on the cheek, leaving Jennifer wondering where she went wrong. Jealous Dario watches Brady and Melanie play pool with Chad and Abigail. He blows up at Melanie and leaves. Melanie wonders what his problem is. Abigail points out that it’s her.

On his way to the pier, Rafe runs into Dario and realizes the DiMeras were trying to set him up. Meanwhile, Sami is furious at discovering the cameo and she wonders what other women the imposter hurt. Rafe returns to the loft and they decide to question the imposter once more. They are waylaid by Gabi, who rips into her brother for his erratic behavior. She suddenly collapses and Rafe rushes her to the hospital. When he learns Gabi is fine, he returns to the loft and hears from Caroline that Sami has left. He realizes Sami has gone to see the imposter on her own. Meanwhile, Sami arrives at the secured room and is alarmed when she finds it empty. Suddenly the door closes behind her, and she whirls around to face the imposter, who is free from his bindings. At the pier, EJ is stunned that Taylor has not left town after all. She takes him back to her hotel room, and she explains she only wanted Nicole to think she left; she won’t give up on being with him. Noting his gun, EJ sadly admits he hasn’t changed. He’s surprised when Taylor accepts him anyway. EJ and Taylor finally make love, together at last.

Jennifer is disappointed when Daniel leaves their date, not knowing he’s trying to be respectful. Maggie drops by and she and Jennifer drown their sorrows in ice cream. Later, Daniel returns and Jennifer looks a mess. She’s mortified but he tells her she’s adorable and that he wants her just the way she is. They end up in a steamy embrace. Dario denies to Adrienne and Justin that he cares for Melanie, but they know better. Later, Melanie confronts Dario, and to his own surprise, he finally admits he has feelings for her. Chloe meets Quinn for a date and almost catches him watching the video he took of them making love. She remains unaware of his dark side. Later, Quinn runs into Vivian at the park and it’s clear they know one another.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Bring the Heartache and Heartbreak to DAYS’ Elani Wedding

Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives showcased the nuptials of now long-suffering duo, Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers).  In true soap opera fashion things didn’t look good for the couple to get hitched in the first place, especially with Gabi’s (Camila Banus) threats that she would literally blow Julie’s (Susan Seasforth Hayes) heart out of her chest, if Lani did not bust up with Eli at the altar.

As Marlena (Deidre Hall) is officiating the ceremony, things took a dark turn when she asked if anyone in attendance could show just cause why the couple should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Everyone is silent as Gabi, who is an attending the nuptials, is quite happy with herself broadcasting the wedding from her phone to Julie who is in the hospital.  Next, an emotional Lani tells Gabi how sorry she is for shooting Stefan.  Lani says she hopes Gabi can set aside their differences for the sake of Julie and Eli.  Gabi tells her she thought she made herself clear.  It appears that Lani decides she is moving forward with the vows, after standing up for herself and ignoring Gabi’s threat after tackling Gabi WWE Smackdown style.  Next, Gabi informs to everyone she just pressed the button on the app on her phone and Eli’s grandmother’s heart exploded. But hold the phone! In that moment, there is a twist.  We go back to Lani at the altar who snaps out of this blackmail nightmare she just played out in her head.  That didn’t really happen, but the audience sees her thinking process through it, which leads Lani in the present to break off the wedding to her beloved Eli.

At the altar, Lani tells Eli through her tears she cannot do this.  Eli is stunned and confused.  The bride tells him he doesn’t deserve this.  Next, Lani turns towards Gabi, and then tells Eli she is sorry and then runs out of the ceremony.   Gabi mutters that her “work is done here” which seems to be overheard by Will (Chandler Massey).

What follows is absolutely devastating scene in the park as Eli has followed Lani there.  Through her tears, and knowing that the only way she can break things off with Eli is to hurt him deeply, Lani tells him at first that she doesn’t deserve to be happy with a husband, because she shot and killed Gabi’s.  However, Eli won’t accept that, and that is when she has to muster everything inside her to break Eli’s heart in pieces.  She tells the man she loves that she doesn’t love him anymore. Lani says that she thought that after baby David’s death and all they went through to be together it would all fall back into place for them, but for her, it didn’t.

Lani says her decision is made. With tears streaming down his face, Eli cries, “So you’re leaving me? That’s it?” Lani confirms it is, and that she is sorry and then runs off.  Cue none other than Gabi to find a gut-punched Eli on the park bench, who she hugs! Looks like there’s a part two to Gabi’s heinous plan ahead.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
