Chad, Will and Sonny realize their website problems are far from over. They learn users are fixing games and using their site to place their bets. At the same time, Abigail learns Jack has submitted her for a prestigious journalism award for an article she wrote for the sports site – and she won! Jack is very proud of her. A touched Abigail encourages her father to start writing again, too. He considers and makes a mysterious call to Roman.

Later, Abigail informs Chad, Will and Sonny of the good news. They don’t reveal their issues with the site, except to say they’re having technical problems. After considering all of their options, the three business partners realize they’re going to have to cut their losses and shut down their site. This is a huge blow, but Chad rallies the troops and gets them to agree to partner on another venture. Abigail returns and asks Chad if they figured out their problem, and he vaguely says they did.

Post-sentencing, Brady goes to see John, and the estranged father and son bond. Brady finally understands how much his father cares for his family. John is sorry they weren’t able to mend fences until now, but hopes they can still work on their relationship even though he’s going to prison. John asks Brady to look after Marlena. Brady agrees and he and his father say a warm good-bye. Later, Jack stops by to see John and reveals he would like to do an in-depth piece on him and allow him to tell his side of the story. John declines at first, but Jack presses. John relents but before he will agree, he needs to talk to his wife and family. Later, the conversation rolls around to Jack being held prisoner. John knows firsthand what it’s like and if it wasn’t for Marlena, he doesn’t know how he would have coped. He urges Jack to get help.

Frustrated Madison realizes Kate has the edge on the local market. She wants to move her world headquarters elsewhere, but Brady isn’t having it and threatens breach of contract. He asks Madison why she wants to run, but before he gets an answer, she leaves. At the same time, Kate has won her latest battle against Madison and she has a new ally in Quinn. Quinn sort of comes on to Kate, but she brushes him off. She does ask for his help in keeping tabs on Madison.

Sami comes to EJ, frustrated and nearly paralyzed with guilt. They try to figure out what to do about their secret. They immediately agree there was no attraction when they had sex but they differ on how to handle the situation. EJ is adamant that Nicole must never know what happened. Concerned, he puts Sami on the spot about whether her guilt is going to cause her to confess to Rafe. After an emotionally fraught argument, they promise each other the secret will remain between them.

EJ and Sami are unaware that Will also knows the truth. Struggling, he seeks out Marlena, who immediately senses something is on his mind. She tries to draw him out and he is tempted to unburden himself… but he manages to keep quiet. He insists any uneasiness he’s having is linked to his relationship with Gabi and his need to have a solid, committed relationship – in contrast to his mother.

Nicole puts Quinn on notice to keep his business clean, but he manages to press her buttons about her feelings for EJ. She runs into Patti Stanger, who offers helpful advice and makes Nicole understand that it’s okay to let go of the past and trust EJ. Rafe and Carrie connect and she asks him to stay on as her investigator and find proof that John is innocent. She warns she can’t pay him but that doesn’t matter to Rafe, who is willing to do it for one important reason: family. Later, Rafe unwittingly pours a little salt in Sami’s wounds with a romantic gesture.

Jennifer worries when Daniel runs late for their date. She thinks he has given up on her, but her fears are unfounded. He shows up, eager to go out. Before they leave, he sees how much Jennifer wants to help Bo and Hope go through Alice’s stuff and graciously offers to change their plans so they can help. The foursome has a good time looking through Alice’s old mementos. Daniel finds a picture of Maggie and learns about his mother’s remarkable past. Later, Hope finds a hidden letter addressed to her grandmother and learns it’s from Susan Banks – EJ’s mother! In the letter, Susan asks Alice for medical help for a young EJ, who is sick – and she begs Alice not to tell Stefano. Bo, Hope, Jennifer and Daniel try to digest this latest revelation and wonder what it all means. Later, Daniel and Jennifer share a sweet kiss, while Bo and Hope are determined to get answers from Stefano.

Marlena tracks Jack down at the pub after he cancels their first therapy session. Jack is upset that Jennifer is going out with Daniel that night and intends to drink his pain away. Marlena slowly gets him to open up, and he begins to understand the root of his destructive behavior. They later go back to the townhouse, where Jack has more flashes of his time locked up in Afghanistan. Marlena pushes and Jack finally reveals the horrors he endured – particularly the execution of his cellmate (and friend). Jack breaks down as Marlena comforts him. Madison drops in on Brady at the Titan offices and admits he was right – she shouldn’t run from Salem. She announces that she will open up her headquarters in town as planned. Relieved Brady has a few ideas of how she can get a stronghold on the Salem cosmetics market – but Madison secretly has an idea of her own. Madison asks Brady out to dinner and they enjoy an evening of flirtation. At the end of dinner, Brady pulls Madison into a hot kiss… which leads to her asking him back to her place. They come very close to making love – but at the last minute, Madison inexplicably pulls back and asks Brady to leave. A confused and angry Brady goes.

Sami runs into Will when she comes home to get a file, and he’s extremely cold to her. She presses her son about his attitude. If she’s offended him in any way, she wants to apologize. Will is tempted to tell her he knows she slept with EJ, but he doesn’t get the chance. His contempt for his mother and her duplicity builds.

Will has a renewed interest in Gabi, promising her that he wants to make a commitment to her and their future. He wants them to be the sort of couple other people admire. Gabi isn’t sure what to make of Will’s new devotion. She has no idea that he is reacting to Sami’s slutty behavior with EJ and wants to lead a moral life. Will presents her with some gifts, building to a revelation that he wants them to move in together. Gabi is caught off guard at first, but warms to the idea. When she starts to get amorous, however, Will abruptly pulls back and confuses her all the more. She leaves without telling Will if she’ll move in with him or not. Off her conversation with Will, Sami crosses with EJ and wonders if there is any way someone could have seen them having sex. EJ doubts it, and certainly hopes not because it would ruin his relationship with Nicole. Sami and EJ cover when Nicole catches them talking. The stakes continue to build over their secret.

Sami, Carrie, Jennifer and Lexie meet for lunch. Sami finds out from Carrie that she and Rafe are continuing to work together on John’s class action lawsuit. She’s not happy about it, but considering her own behavior with EJ, she doesn’t want to make waves. Carrie encourages Sami to visit Marlena now that John is in jail, but Sami wants nothing to do with them. She still blames John and her mother for what nearly happened with Johnny.  Nicole arranges for some reporters to grill Abe after he visits John in jail. Jennifer accuses Nicole of playing dirty, and warns if this is the sort of campaign she and EJ plan to run, they had better watch out. Lexie is disappointed her efforts to have a truce with her brother have failed.

At Maggie’s, Chad, Sonny and Will make dinner for Abigail, Melanie and Gabi. Conflicted Gabi wants to move in with Will but feels there’s something missing in their relationship. She eventually turns down his offer and ends up breaking up with him. Will has a huge over-reaction, not just because of her rejection but also because he’s still reeling from his mother’s unspeakable actions with EJ. He explodes in a fit of anger, tearing apart Maggie’s kitchen. While sharing a meal at the Brady Pub, Austin and Carrie decide to stay in Salem — permanently. Abigail runs into them and fights a subtle attraction to Austin. Later, Carrie comments to Austin how Abigail has turned from a gawky kid into a beautiful young woman.  At Quinn’s spa, Sami enjoys the massage Rafe booked for her. She’s busted by Madison, however, and she reads her the riot act for patronizing the enemy. Rafe is protective and defends his wife. At home, Sami’s guilt is unceasing in the face of Rafe’s caring. When he asks if things are okay between them, Sami is driven to show him just how much she loves him and comes up the impulsive but heartfelt suggestion that they renew their vows. Rafe, nonplussed but pleased, agrees.  Roman warns Quinn that he’d better stick to the straight and narrow or he’ll end up in jail. Kate, who has witnessed Sami being chewed out by Madison, comes up with a juicy idea. Later, Madison waves off Roman’s warning about going up against Kate DiMera.

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
