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.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Will and Sonny Call It Quits

On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Chandler Massey (Will) once again delivered heart-breaking scenes as the love story of WilSon took a dramatic turn.

After Sonny is summoned to the prison to see Will, the two have an emotional conversation, in which Will tells Sonny he knows that he kissed Evan (Brock Kelly) thanks to Kate (Lauren Koslow(.  Sonny assured Will that the he is not with Evan, but Will says, “Not yet.”

Courtesy/NBC

Will goes on to say that what he did by taking the life of Sonny’s mom, and Justin’s (Wally Kurth) wife has put Sonny in an untenable situation and their marriage.  While Sonny calls it a tragic accident, Will will not allow Sonny to live his life with the ball and chain around him which is now an incarcerated Will, who will serve a prison term for what seems like years.

Knowing Sonny’s animosity towards Will, as much as he protests he doesn’t have it, Will asks for a divorce as tears well-up in Sonny’s eyes. Will mentions Justin’s recent prison visit and how they ran into each other.  Sonny tells Will just what Justin told him, that he is like a son to him. But Will feels so much guilt for taking the woman Justin loved away from him, and Sonny’s beloved mother, Adrienne.

Then, Sonny asks if this is really about Evan.  Will says he  is just a catalyst as he wants Sonny to be happy with Evan, or whoever else he wants to be with in the future.  Will says he loves his husband so much that he wants him to find happiness again, and he knows he won’t if he is tethered to him.  Will tells Sonny he knows his daughter is in good hands with him and Gabi (Camila Banus) and he needs to honor Sonny for all that he had meant to him by loving him by setting him free.

The two men come to the harsh realization by finally admitting to one another that this was a long time coming.  With tears streaming down his face, Sonny says to Will, that when Will asked him to stop visiting him in prison, he knew their marriage was over, but neither could muster up the  courage to end it.

In the end, they both say how sorry they are, and say goodbye as Will is taken by the prison guard back to his cell as Sonny ls left devastated.

Freddie and Chandler reminded us all of why WilSon has been a continuing power couple on DAYS with their performances.  Now the question is; can Sonny and Will work their way back to each other, or is this the final straw in their lengthy relationship?
