DAYS Recap – Oct 4 – Oct 8th

© JPI Studios

Before Sami can admit to Rafe that she shot EJ, Gabi and Arianna stop by. Arianna notes the tension between Sami and Rafe while Gabi discovers they plan to get married soon. Arianna is upset, believing the news will kill EJ. For EJ’s sake, Arianna agrees to keep the impending nuptials a secret. She remains determined to find out who shot EJ and bring that person to justice. After she and Gabi leave, Rafe decides he doesn’t want Sami to tell him who tried to kill EJ. When she leaves, he vows to find a way to protect Will while Sami vows to protect Rafe from the truth. EJ tells Roman he’s willing to make a statement about the day he was shot, but pretends not to remember anything that happened after his wedding. Lexie insists to Roman that he no longer question EJ. Roman realizes that unless EJ can name his assailant, the case is at a standstill. Stefano wonders why EJ didn’t accuse Sami of trying to shoot him. EJ says he would then have to admit he remembers Rafe’s interruption and accusations and refuses to be questioned by the police about his role in kidnapping Sydney. Instead, EJ will find proof of who shot him on his own and make sure those involved are punished. Later, EJ decides to use Arianna as his path to proving Sami shot him. Justin and Adrienne realize that perhaps their divorce was a mistake and take a tentative step toward rekindling their love. Brady and Nicole make love. Meanwhile, Vivian waits for Nicole to call the cops and free her. Brady lies to Nicole and tells her he loves her, but hesitates when Nicole asks him to free Vivian. She doesn’t want to see him go to prison. After Brady leaves for a meeting, Nicole speaks to Vivian. When Vivian realizes Brady seduced Nicole, she’s furious. Nicole has second thoughts about freeing her. Meanwhile, Isabella’s coffin is returned to the mausoleum. Emotional, Brady realizes his mother would never approve of his actions towards Vivian. Justin enters, and asks about the coffin. Justin nearly discovers Brady. He continues to question Brady’s odd behavior. At the same time, Nicole speaks with Vivian. She tries to convince Nicole that Brady has played her, but in doing so, ends up insulting her instead. Nicole decides Vivian deserves her fate. She goes to Brady and gets Justin to leave unaware of what’s amiss Brady seems to have a change of heart about Vivian, but so does Nicole, who tells him she will help him keep his secret. She still loves him. Brady makes it clear he has changed. Later, Brady and Nicole seem on the path to reconciliation, but has Vivian found a way to escape? Warden Jane Smith informs Hope that Bo pulled some strings so she will be able to start a new job in the prison infirmary. She’s introduced to a trustee named Lee, who supervises her. While working, Hope meets a prisoner, April, who reminds her of her younger self. Meanwhile, Bo and Kayla reunite. Kayla can’t stress enough how she believes Bo made the wrong choice in choosing Carly over Hope. Bo tells her that the choice has been made. After Kayla leaves, Justin reveals to Bo that Hope has signed the divorce papers. Later, Kayla goes to Hope and they share an emotional reunion. Kayla insists Bo and Hope will never be out of each other’s lives. Meanwhile, Warden Jane warns Lee to keep a close eye on Hope. Kayla informs Stephanie that she’s going to meet with Sister Anne to discuss the paternity test. She urges Stephanie to be honest with Nathan. At the same time, Daniel confronts Nathan about his problem with Chloe. Nathan stonewalls him and Daniel gets upset, which Stephanie witnesses. Meanwhile, Chloe shares her wedding plans with Melanie. Her happiness is cut short when Father Matt arrives and she is forced to deal with her mistakes. Daniel returns to Chloe, and she tells him about her desire to have her child baptized. Back at the hospital, a rattled Nathan tells Stephanie he knows Chloe cheated on Daniel although he doesn’t know with whom. While Stephanie contemplates telling Nathan what she knows, Melanie enters unseen and is shocked to overhear Nathan confirm his knowledge that Chloe cheated on Daniel.

Melanie is anguished off the knowledge that Chloe cheated on her father. After talking to Maggie in cryptic terms about her dilemma, she realizes she must make sure she’s not mistaken about what she overheard. Meanwhile, Stephanie almost tells Nathan what she knows, but ultimately loses her nerve. Stephanie and Kayla discuss the odds of the truth coming out. Later, Melanie confronts Nathan. Chloe and Daniel are blissfully happy as their wedding day dawns. Melanie calls and asks to speak to Daniel alone. He agrees and plans to see her later. Chloe is distraught that her family can’t come to the wedding. Nicole shows up on Chloe’s doorstep and worms her way back into the wedding while Daniel shows up at Maggie’s, looking for Melanie. Brady and Nicole discuss what to do with Vivian. Meanwhile, Vivian has found a way to communicate with Gus. She hears Gus’s voice, and calls out to him. Gus is puzzled, not knowing where her voice is coming from. Brady goes to the mansion to chat with Vivian and nearly catches her calling out to Gus for help. In turn, Victor nearly catches Brady, who asks his grandfather for a favor. He wants to move into Vivian’s room – with Nicole.

Melanie confronts Nathan about Chloe cheating on Daniel. Nathan has no choice but to say it’s true. Melanie can’t believe he wouldn’t tell her or Daniel the truth, but Nathan states it was none of his business and that it was up to Chloe to deal with – not him. Melanie doesn’t care and she tells Nathan she hates him. Later, Nathan asks Melanie what she’s going to do. She tells him she has no choice but to stop the wedding. Stephanie arrives and Melanie tells her she knows about everything and that she deserves better than Nathan. Daniel praises a guilty Philip for his devotion and friendship to Chloe. He was there for her in dark times. Philip notes it only made Chloe’s love for Daniel stronger. Meanwhile, Chloe is prattling on to Nicole about how she wants to be friends with Melanie. Nicole warns that Melanie will always be her daddy’s little girl. Chloe understands and the two friends wish each other well. Later, Daniel realizes he has to make a stop at home, and Chloe opens the door to Melanie, who slaps her. Vivian reaches out to Gus via a remote receiver she gave him. Gus thinks he’s hearing voices, but realizes it really is Vivian. She explains her predicament and Gus, sadly, tells her she’s on her own. Brady asks Victor to let him and Nicole move in to Vivian’s old room. Victor quickly deduces that Brady is using Nicole. Daniel arrives to check on his best man and learns Nicole and Brady are back together. Daniel and Nicole have a nice moment, but later he warns Brady about rekindling his relationship with her. Brady assures Daniel he knows what he’s doing. Brady and Nicole go to Vivian’s old room and share an intense moment. Meanwhile, Victor appeals to Maggie about Brady’s choice to be with Nicole. Maggie urges Victor to stand down and monitor the situation closely. EJ tells Stefano he is going to use Arianna to find proof that either Will or Sami shot him. Later, EJ tells Arianna that Stefano suspects Sami or Will and is afraid what his father will do to them. He needs to protect them by discovering the truth for himself. Arianna agrees to help. At Lexie’s urging, Sami visits EJ. He tries to manipulate her into confessing she shot him, but she pulls back at the last minute and leaves. Frustrated, EJ tells Stefano he needs Arianna more than ever. Sami finds Arianna questioning Will about his alibi and kicks her out. She warns Will that Arianna can’t be trusted. Daniel is prevented from rushing home by Dr. Ben Walters, who wants to talk about EJ’s status. After that, Carly intercepts Daniel. She gives him a wedding gift. She’s grateful that he forgave her for keeping Melanie’s existence a secret. Daniel is touched, and makes her promise to always be a part of his, Melanie, and Chloe’s family. Carly agrees and they share a platonic hug.  Curious, Melanie tells Chloe she knows she cheated on Daniel. Chloe denies it at first but finally admits the truth. She’s not proud of it, but it only happened once. She refuses to divulge the man’s identity, and fed up Melanie decides it’s time to tell Daniel everything. Chloe begs her not to, and says her unborn child will suffer most of all, but Melanie doubts the baby is even Daniel’s. Chloe tells Melanie about the paternity test. Melanie is disbelieving. Chloe admits someone else knows about it and can prove the results are true. She’s forced to admit that person is Melanie’s mother, Carly. Kate realizes Chad could never replace EJ as Stefano’s son and decides not to reveal his paternity. Chad loses his job at the Java Café, and tells Kate he’d like to take her up on the internship – under one condition: she not come on to him. Kate blurts she wasn’t offering him the internship for her sake, but for Stefano’s. Regretting her blurt, she kicks him out of house, but Chad is puzzled by her words.

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?
