Taylor urges Nicole to set EJ free. Nicole refuses and orders Taylor to leave town or she’ll destroy EJ. Meanwhile, Stefano tells his son that he believes Rafe2 has fallen in love with Sami. EJ is still convinced he’s come back to extort money from them. Stefano warns that either way, the imposter must be eliminated. Later, Nicole shows up and tells EJ that Taylor unknowingly blabbed about him running the drug business. Now Nicole has even more ammunition against him. She also informs him that her sister is leaving town. EJ is devastated. Meanwhile, Taylor bids goodbye to Lexie and Brady. Rafe runs into Dario, who is shocked to learn he’s back with Sami. Rafe wants to reach out to his brother but knows he must act more like his imposter. After Rafe leaves, Melanie advises Dario not to give up on Rafe – family is too important. Meanwhile, Rafe pays his doppelganger a visit. Carly realizes she’s falling for Daniel, but tries to cover when she goes on a family lunch date with him and Melanie. The three of them bond as Melanie tells her parents she wants to become a nurse practitioner. Later, Carly goes back to the hospital where she confides in Lexie about her feelings for Daniel. Alone in her office, Carly is able to resist taking a pill as she thinks about her family. Brady warns Daniel to be good to Jennifer. Meanwhile, Hope visits Jennifer and finds her cousin contemplating sexy lingerie. Jennifer confides she’s worried she doesn’t stack up to Rebecca and Chloe. Hope helps her work through her insecurities. But after Hope leaves, Jennifer still decides to tweak her appearance,

EJ is devastated to learn from Nicole that Taylor has left town. After receiving confirmation from Lexie, he is pushed further to a dark place. Angry at the world, EJ assures an impatient Stefano that he will personally take care of the Rafe imposter, who, of course, is actually Rafe. Meanwhile, Rafe grills his lookalike to get information on the DiMeras. After much give and take, Rafe still comes up empty. The imposter warns that the DiMeras will catch on to his impersonation act sooner rather than later. When they do, Rafe is a dead man. Brady finds Nicole crying in the park. He points out that she has pushed away everyone who has ever loved her, including him. He warns she has no one but herself to blame for her misery. Justin and Adrienne arrange for Chloe to have a brief visit with Parker. Chloe is overjoyed, but heartbroken when she must once again say goodbye to her son. She promises the social worker that she will continue her progress in becoming a good mother. Meanwhile, Quinn works on both his drug business and another mystery side business. Later, he meets up with Chloe and charms her. He invites her to dinner and she gladly accepts.

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.

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.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
