Melanie realizes Chloe is telling the truth; Carly helped cover up her affair. Melanie seeks out her mother and blasts her for lying once again. A devastated Carly urges her not to tell Daniel the truth, but Melanie says she’s not going to be a liar like her mother. Meanwhile, Chloe calls Philip and tells him Melanie knows she cheated. He covers in front of Daniel and rushes to Chloe, who emotionally explains all. She promises she’ll never reveal that he was the other man. Philip says he’ll convince Melanie not to tell Daniel.  Daniel threatens to un-invite Victor to his wedding if he won’t support his marriage to Chloe. Victor can’t help feeling that Chloe is no Rebecca. Daniel still respects his love for his late wife, but he professes his profound love for Chloe. Victor gives Daniel a wedding present that’s been in the Kiriakis family for generations and wishes him and Chloe many years of happiness.  After congratulating Daniel on his impending wedding to Chloe, Bo and Carly discuss how happy they are together. She can’t believe how much her life has changed from a year ago. Carly leaves and Abe meets up with Bo. Bo confides that Hope still won’t allow him to visit her in prison. They discuss how much better Ciara is adjusting. Abe then gets a call from their children’s school. A kid was bullying Ciara, and Theo got in trouble for defending her. Bo learns from Ciara that she was bullied because of her mom. Hope helps the new young inmate April through an appendicitis attack. She then learns that April has no family. When April goes into surgery, Hope is taken away to see a visitor. Lee, the trustee, is pleased to know Hope will be gone for a bit. Hope is stunned to learn her visitor is Bo.

Rafe learns from Ben that EJ’s health can now withstand the truth. Sami happily tells EJ that they’re not really married. EJ reacts, in “shock,” and Roman tells him he will now face charges for kidnapping Sydney. EJ is determined to prove that either Sami or Will shot him. Rafe takes Sami home and tells her he’s quit the FBI. Now she can tell him anything, and he won’t have a conflict of interest. Sami finally confesses the truth. She shot EJ. Melanie is unconvinced by Carly’s pleas to keep the truth about Chloe’s affair from Daniel. Philip seeks out Melanie and makes a similar case, which also falls on deaf ears. Meanwhile, Daniel shows up at his apartment, looking for Melanie. Nicole tries to cover her absence by saying that Chloe and Melanie had a fight. She claims Chloe innocently made an insensitive remark about Melanie, which Melanie overheard. After Daniel leaves, Philip shows up and breaks the news that he failed – Melanie is still determined to tell Daniel the truth. At the same time, Melanie and Daniel finally come face-to-face. Bo has come to see Hope in prison, and asks for her help in co-parenting a troubled Ciara. He talks over the bully situation with Hope, who demonstrates she’s still the loving mother she’s always been. Hope sends him home with advice for Ciara. Later, Bo meets back up with Carly, who doesn’t tell him about Melanie. Meanwhile, Hope is shocked to learn from Lee that April died in surgery.

Sami has finally told Rafe the truth – she shot EJ. At first, Rafe doesn’t believe her, but then she offers proof. He pledges his love and loyalty to her only to be called away to finish resigning from the FBI. Later, Sami tells Will that Rafe knows all. Arianna, who is searching for Rafe, overhears Sami admitting she shot EJ. While Chloe, Philip, Carly and Nicole all wonder if the wedding will happen, Melanie tells Daniel he cannot get married and he seems to understand. Daniel explains he heard what Chloe said about Melanie not being his “real” child. Melanie eventually realizes Chloe has covered up the truth with another lie. Daniel explains his love for Chloe to Melanie as she prepares to break his heart with the truth. Before she can, however, Daniel is called away. Melanie becomes conflicted, and after a run-in with a bitter Brady, she knows what she must do. In the park and moments away from the wedding, Chloe and Carly in a strange way bond as they prepare to face the music. Maggie and Victor arrive, and patiently wait. Chloe, seeing that Melanie has done nothing, pushes an upset Daniel to start the wedding. As the ceremony begins, Melanie arrives and stops the wedding, confronting Chloe in front of all. Brady and Nicole discuss Vivian’s entombment, and their new living situation. As they come together for a kiss, shocked Arianna witnesses it. Arianna accuses Nicole of changing Brady for the worse. Nicole claims she’s just jealous. Meanwhile, Vivian has contacted Gus through a receiver she placed in his bag. She pleads with him, but he refuses to help her. She’s crazy. Vivian continues to beg, and tells him what happened to her. Brady checks on her and wonders who she’s talking to. He nearly discovers all, but Vivian covers. Affected by Vivian’s words, Gus finally decides to help her.

Rafe has quit the FBI in order to protect Sami. Will is blown away by this. He is moved by the lengths Rafe would go for his mother. Rafe admits he’s not thrilled, but seeing that there is no proof Sami did anything and the fact that EJ is making a full recovery, he kind of thinks EJ got what he deserved. He tells them they must all make a pact – no one can ever know what Sami did. Sami tells Rafe she feels terrible about what she’s putting him through. Rafe says he’d die protecting her. EJ is being discharged from the hospital when he’s hit with a court order forbidding him from seeing his kids. Neither Stefano nor Lexie can believe Sami would act so soon. EJ realizes not only is he going to lose his children, but he’s also losing Sami. Stefano sets his head straight and vows to fight, and EJ finally comes around. He goes home and has some memories of Sami, but despite his feelings for her, he wants his kids back at any cost. Arianna is deeply upset after overhearing Sami and Will talk about how she shot EJ. She realizes she must tell EJ. She goes to the hospital, but learns he’s been discharged. Later, she goes to the DiMera mansion, ready to spill all. Stephanie worries the truth about the paternity switch will be revealed now that Melanie knows Chloe had an affair. Kayla tells Stephanie to relax. Maybe the results were changed, maybe it was a glitch. Either way, it’s out of her hands. Chloe and Melanie have a show down at the wedding. To Chloe, Philip, Nicole and Carly’s relief, Melanie decides not to spill al, but she puts Chloe on warning. Daniel asks what’s going on, but both women cover. Melanie refuses to talk to Carly. After Daniel and Chloe are married, they go home to pack for their honeymoon. Daniel admits he’s not thrilled with what went down between her and Melanie, which, unbeknownst to him, was a lie. Later, Melanie arrives and Daniel admits he was worried about her, and tells her he’ll have a talk with Chloe. Daniel and Chloe leave on their honeymoon. Alone with Philip, Melanie says sometimes you have to lie for love. Victor is still twigged by Nicole and Brady’s behavior. Maggie tells him maybe now is the time to step in, and Victor intends to do so.

Arianna is about to tell EJ that Sami shot him when Kate interrupts. Kate is wary of what Arianna is up to, afraid somehow either she or Will will be implicated. EJ chews out an employee over the phone, and Arianna is given pause due to his temper. She doesn’t want to endanger his health. When EJ gets dizzy, Arianna leaves to go meet Gabi, but assures him she’ll be back. After talking to Gabi about their brother, Arianna comes to a decision. Meanwhile, EJ and Kate have a chat about where her loyalties lie. Rafe tries to reassure Sami that she’s home free. Sami remains worried and expresses concern about both Arianna and Kate. She is grateful, however, for Rafe’s protection.   Melanie explains to Philip her rationale for keeping Chloe’s secret. Carly arrives and hears the rest of the explanation. Melanie can’t forgive Carly and they sadly part ways. Melanie is so grateful that Philip, unlike Carly, has no ulterior motives. Philip’s guilt becomes visible as he pulls Melanie into a kiss. Chloe and Daniel are on their honeymoon, but there’s a distance between them. Chloe fully owns her “mistake” about her comment about Melanie, and promises to do her best to make things right.

Days Of Our Lives

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.
