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: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS’ Kate Mansi Delivers The ‘Power Performance Of The Week’

This week was a whirlwind for the character of Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) on Days of our Lives.  On Christmas Eve, she shows up at the annual Christmas Ornament hanging at the Hortons with her daughter, Charlotte in tow.  When she gets there, she has a few choice words for her mother, Jennifer (Melissa Reeves).

A hurt and angered Abby lets her mom have it for not believing in her sanity in a gut-wrenching moment played to perfection by Kate Mansi.  Coming in to the scene like a firecracker ready to explode, she let out the emotions of how her own family would not stand by her when she was being gas-lighted by Gabi (Camila Banus), and yet even with that, no one still believed her.  (She still had no hard evidence to proof that she was telling the truth, but that was just around the corner!)

In addition, Mansi was pretending to be “Gabby” with a Y, the alter that fell for Stefan (Tyler Christopher) in an effort to get her freedom, and she did it.  She hands the guy divorce papers as a Christmas present, throws off her wig, shocking him that he was the one being played.   She is not sick.  She is herself, Abigail and she is leaving him and taking their baby with her.

Later, when Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) remembers that she saw the DNA results proving that Chad (Billy Flynn) is the father of Charlotte, not Stefan, it is a triumphant moment for Abigail, yet a stinger, because she realizes the lengths her supposed “friend” Gabi went to for her revenge plot against her.  Eventually, Abby reunites Charlotte with her real bio-dad, Chad.  And for good measure, after the truth is finally out, and Abigail proves that she is of sound mind and body, she clocks Gabi for her deception right in front of Chad.

With the levels of emotion illustrating the character’s inner-strength, and the depth in her work, MFTV names Kate Mansi the last week of 2018’s, “Power Performance of the Week.”

Let us know what you thought of Kate’s performance, what was your favorite moment in it, and how the week unraveled for Abby, Gsbi, Stefan, Chad, Jennifer, and Julie in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Remembers & Delivers Christmas Bombshell: Chad Is The Father of Abigail’s Baby!

Ah, we were waiting for Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to come through and she did and in record soap time – glad her amnesiac bout was short-lived.  On the Christmas day episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, Julie and Abigail (Kate Mansi) have a chat at the Horton’s about Gabi (Camila Banus).  Feeling guilty she had Julie snoop around on Gabi, (which eventually led to her tumble down the stairs), Julie says they need to keep their eye on the bigger prize is doing a “victory dance” when they bring down Ms. Hernandez for making Abby look like she has been suffering from her mental illness (DID), yet again.

Stefan (Tyler Christopher) shows up at the Horton’s demanding to see his daughter, Charlotte.  Abigail is not happy about him just showing up unannounced, especially after she delivered a special Christmas present to him … divorce papers … and then revealed she had been playing him this whole time as Gabby with a “Y”, and had exited the DiMera mansion with baby in tow.  Abby brings Charlotte to Stefan, who lowers the boom on her saying he is taking the baby back home with him.  He pulls out custody papers that his lawyer had drawn up.  Hearing Abigail and Stefan argue, and Stefan professing, “That is my daughter”, etc, leads Julie to have a startling revelation!

Suddenly, Julie’s memory is sparked about her confrontation with Gabi and how she fell down the stairs, and finding the DNA results that Gabi was hiding that proved that Chad (Billy Flynn) was Charlotte’s father, not Stefan.  Julie drops the ornament she was holding in her hand and it breaks, when she remembers! She then tells a stunned Abby and Stefan that Chad is Charlotte’s biological father.  She continues to tell them how Gabi switched the paternity results and when she confronted Gabi about it, they had a struggle as Gabi was trying to rip the results out of Julie’s hands, thus causing her fall.

Stefan demands real proof, and so he and Abby  head to the hospital to find Kayla (Mary Beth Evans).  When they go into Kayla’s office,she tells them that she remembers now that Gabi was with her the day that she got the DNA results.  Thus, Gabi is looking more and more guilty by the second!  Kayla goes into the hospital database and sure enough, Chad is the father, not Stefan.  Mr. DiMera is in complete denial.

After the hospital Christmas party for the kids – and how funny was Leo (Greg Rikaart ) in his decked out Xmas outfit, and those lines of dialog remarked to the sick children – Chad and Gabi come home.  When Gabi goes upstairs to pack for their move, Abigail arrives with Charlotte.  She tells Chad that Charlotte is his bio-daughter.  Chad is speechless!  Meanwhile, Stefan is alone at Christmas in the mansion, and picks up the present he got for Charlotte, and then smashes it to the ground and begins to sob.

So, were you glad Julie’s memory came back pretty pronto?  Are you rooting for Chad and Abby to finally get back together? What should happen to Gabi now that her jig is almost up?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  And for more with Susan Seaforth Hayes’ big week of story and her 50 years of Julie make sure to check out the latest episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast streaming now at NBC. com and on all major pod platforms.
