Justin plays a video of Arianna, who discusses her will. She bequeaths some of her possessions to Rafe and Gabi, who are touched. Sami fears that Arianna has left her camera with to EJ. However, EJ receives a statue of Saint Anthony for his faith in her. Sami is relieved, while EJ is disappointed. Brady arrives and is shocked to learn Arianna has left the rest of her estate to him! Melanie walks in on Philip, Victor, Brady, Nicole and Kate celebrating keeping Vivian entombed in the sarcophagus. They all lie to Melanie, choosing not to get her involved. Later, Kate speaks with Melanie and tells her Chloe lies about everything and can’t be trusted. Melanie calls Chloe, and says they have to meet. She can’t live with the secret anymore. Meanwhile, Philip tells Victor he hates lying to Melanie. They go to Vivian’s old bedroom to check on her. Gus, who escaped Victor’s men, has rescued Vivian from the sarcophagus. She calls Maggie and convinces her to meet at the mausoleum. Vivian blames Victor for her entombment. Horrified, Maggie insists they go to police, but she ends up in the sarcophagus! Chad reveals to Will that he received a birth certificate in the mail and it names Stefano as his father. The sender was anonymous, although Chad, without revealing to Will, believes it was Kate. Will thoughtfully warns Chad to stay away from Stefano and advises him to say nothing. Chad isn’t sure what he’s going to do. Sami, EJ, Rafe, Nicole and Brady are shocked by the news that Brady is the main benefactor of Arianna’s estate. EJ and Rafe get into a fight, which Roman interrupts with news about a new witness in Arianna’s hit-and-run case. Sami, Rafe and EJ meet with the witness, who claims he saw a shiny object fly out of Arianna’s purse and into the gutter. EJ rushes out to see if it was Arianna’s evidence, but Sami is confidant that it’s long gone. Meanwhile, Justin gives Brady the keys to Arianna’s safe deposit box. Brady collects Arianna’s belongings. When Brady leaves the room, Nicole discovers the camera – and the truth about what Sami did! Maggie freaks out in the sarcophagus. Vivian is triumphant as she and Gus hide away in a hotel room. At the same time, Victor discovers he can no longer see Vivian on the monitor (Gus has disconnected the video feed). Victor uses the audio to contact Vivian, who pretends to still be in the coffin. Suspicious, Victor and Philip go to the tomb to investigate. Will Victor discover Maggie? Melanie indicates to Daniel she has something important to tell him, but stalls. She then tells Chloe she must come clean. Chloe follows Melanie to the Horton cabin to have it out with her. A livid Melanie calls Daniel to tell him about Chloe’s affair. Suddenly, Chloe goes into labor!

Rafe and Sami make love, and he pledges his commitment to their future together. Meanwhile, Stefano excoriates EJ for staking everything on finding the proof against Sami. Marco brings EJ bad news about his search for the camera. EJ gets an idea. Meanwhile, Stefano confirms to Marco that he is to proceed with his orders for the hit. Nicole watches Sami’s full confession on Arianna’s camera. She ultimately decides not to tell Brady what she’s found, unsure about his loyalties to Sami and realizing she might be able to use this information to get Sydney back. Later, she shows up on Sami’s doorstep, prepared to drop her bombshell. Victor and Philip nearly discover Maggie in the sarcophagus, but at the last minute Victor decides not to open the lid. Vivian, who redirected the audio, is able to fool Victor into thinking she’s still in the sarcophagus. She’s hurt by Victor’s unkind words and is driven to torment Maggie. Vivian also prepares to send out an email explaining Maggie’s disappearance. Victor and Brady discover Gus has escaped, but they think he left town without Vivian. They assume Vivian is still trapped, not knowing it’s really Maggie who’s in the sarcophagus. Melanie realizes Chloe really is in labor, which precludes her from telling Daniel the truth about the affair. Daniel enlists Philip’s help in getting a boat en route to the island. Meanwhile, the baby is coming much more quickly than expected, and Melanie is forced to play delivery nurse. Later, Chloe is exhausted and delirious. She starts to spill to Melanie that the man she slept with was Philip. Nicole reveals to Sami that she has Arianna’s camera and plays the video of the confession. Sami freaks, but Nicole says she can be bought. She tells Sami her terms – she wants Sydney back in her life. Sami believes Nicole will use this to turn Sydney against her someday and she refuses to let that happen. Before Nicole can leave, Sami attacks her. They fight, and Nicole tries to flee, but she slips and hits her head. EJ goes to Brady to sniff around for clues about Arianna’s proof and finds Rafe there. Unable to get answers, EJ leaves. At home, he wonders if the religious statue Arianna left him holds a clue. He breaks it, but finds nothing and loses faith in getting his children back. At the same time, Brady asks Rafe if Sami shot EJ. Rafe evades, but Brady warns him – if Sami did it, EJ will make her pay. Rafe takes off, alarmed for Sami. Melanie helps Chloe give birth as Daniel and Philip arrive in time to witness. Chloe and Daniel bond over their new son and Melanie thaws toward Chloe. They get the baby to the hospital. Melanie backs off from telling Daniel the truth. Philip gets to hold the new baby, not knowing it’s his own son. Philip tells Melanie he’s ready to become a father. Stephanie tells Caroline she’s meeting with Roman. She’s going to reveal that Philip is Chloe’s baby’s father. But when they get to the hospital to tell Roman, they run into Daniel, Chloe and the new baby – the picture of a happy family. Stephanie puts her plans on hold for now, but still intends to tell the truth.

In the struggle with Sami, Nicole has hit her head and is knocked out. Rafe enters, and revives Nicole, who tells him Sami tried to kill her. Nicole reveals Sami’s confession on the camera. Rafe asks Nicole what she wants and she explains that she wants visits with Sydney. Rafe agrees and Nicole goes. Sami doesn’t know how she can ever survive handing Sydney off to Nicole. Rafe, with a plan, says she won’t have to. Carly shows a file to Bo based on research she did regarding possible prison infirmary shenanigans. Bo realizes Hope needs to have this information, but Jane won’t let him see her. Bo comes up with a plan to help Hope, one that involves Carly. Jennifer pays a surprise visit to Hope, explaining she’s in town to deal with Alice’s estate – and to help her cousin. Afterwards, Jennifer bumps into Bo and says she may be moving back to Salem permanently. Bo wonders what’s going on with her. Lee and Jane agree that it’s best to keep Bo and Hope separated. Jane realizes she needs to find a way to keep Hope isolated. Later, Carly visits Hope, following Bo’s plan. Carly tells her Lee used to be a doctor and had her license revoked after being convicted for illegally filling prescriptions. Shocked, Hope realizes Lee might have something to do with the mysterious deaths. Chad confronts Kate with his birth certificate. She neither confirms nor denies that she sent it to him. Kate warns Chad of Stefano’s dark side, and advises him to think long and hard before he lets Stefano know that they may be father and son. Later, Kate lies to Stefano about her meeting with Chad. Chad calls Stefano from a payphone, but hangs up without saying anything.

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.
