Rafe and Sami get the call that EJ has woken up. EJ calls for Sami and refers to her as his wife. Rafe learns that EJ doesn’t remember anything beyond the wedding, but thinks he is faking. Sami fears seeing EJ, but finally goes in. Will EJ remember what happened? Chloe’s remarks cause Nicole to go to Pookie’s grave at the pet cemetery, and lament over her loss. Meanwhile, Vivian worries Brady will kill her, but his real concern is his mother and getting her remains back from the pet cemetery where Vivian put her. Later, Brady goes to the pet cemetery and speaks with the caretaker, Keith, to arrange a transfer. Unfortunately, Nicole sees him. While talking with Carly, Nathan reveals his real feelings about Chloe. Daniel overhears and confronts Nathan about why he doesn’t like Chloe.  Meanwhile, Kayla overhears Stephanie and Ian talking about the paternity results and forces the truth out of Stephanie.  Stephanie is a mess as she thinks all may be falling apart. Later, Carly comes to think Nathan may be the one Chloe slept with and goes to ask her. Nathan finds an upset Stephanie, who seems ready to reveal all even as Kayla appears ready to do the same with Daniel. Sami realizes EJ thinks they’re married and has no memory of getting busted at their wedding. Lexie tells Sami and Rafe that she must keep up the pretense or EJ’s blood pressure could spike and cause a brain hemorrhage. Sami reluctantly brings Johnny and Sydney to see EJ. Johnny tells his father that he and Sydney are now living with Sami and Rafe. Carly asks Chloe if she had the one night stand with Nathan. Chloe neither denies nor confirms her suspicion. Instead, she convinces her not to pursue the matter because she only wants to look forward. Philip, meanwhile, finds Melanie’s perfect home, which is two blocks from Maggie. Melanie runs into Nathan and recalls when he said “I love you, Melanie” in his sleep. She covers with him, but she tells Carly the truth. Carly thinks Melanie made the right choice in choosing Philip. Meanwhile, Chloe runs into Philip, and tells him Carly suspects Nathan was her one night stand. She is convinced she nipped Carly’s curiosity in the bud. Stephanie nearly tells Nathan about the switched paternity tests, but pulls back and just tells him about her fight with Kayla. Nathan thinks it was over their living together. Stephanie neither confirms nor denies, but returns to her mom to face the music. Kayla, meanwhile, waits to tell Daniel he’s not the father of Chloe’s baby as they reminisce. Daniel reminds Kayla about a hospital mix-up in which Kayla saved the day. Kayla remembers it, and then has second thoughts about telling Daniel the truth. Later, she tells Stephanie it’s possible the test showing Daniel is not the father was a simple clerical error and she thinks she knows a way to find out for sure.

Sami must continue the ruse with EJ that they are married and Rafe tries to be supportive. It’s hard on both of them when Rafe walks in on EJ kissing Sami. Stefano comes to visit and EJ reveals to his father that he’s faking and remembers everything! Meanwhile, Rafe takes Sami back to the Brady Pub, and to cheer her up, he wants to take her and the kids somewhere for a surprise. Kate is worried about keeping two secrets from Stefano: her call to Sami ratting out EJ about wanting to take the kids, and that Chad is Stefano’s son. She decides to ease her conscience by getting one secret off the table and calls Chad over, but doesn’t tell him, just pitches him the idea of a paid internship with DiMera Enterprises. Chad gets the wrong idea and thinks Kate is coming on to him. EJ explains to Stefano that he’s faking his amnesia to gain the upper hand over Sami when it comes to custody of the kids. His explanation is interrupted by a blood pressure spike, and Nathan makes Stefano wait outside. Stefano confides in Kate that EJ does remember everything. Kate is guilty about the secrets she is still keeping from her husband. When he feels better, EJ finally tells Stefano that he remembers who shot him. Rafe brings Sami and the kids to their new home. Their domestic bliss is undermined by the situation with EJ, though Sami, Rafe and Will do their best to put aside their respective worries. Later, Rafe and Sami discuss getting married as soon as possible. Nicole realizes that Vivian is in the sarcophagus and that Brady was responsible for putting her there. Initially, she thinks he’s covering at Victor’s behest, but after a visit from Victor, she realizes that Brady acted alone. Only Nicole knows where Vivian is.

Rafe still believes Will shot EJ, and he encourages Sami to get everything out in the open. Later, Roman stops by. He’s on his way to get a statement from EJ. Apparently, he’s lucid enough now to talk. Sami hopes he won’t remember anything. Rafe notes it won’t stop Stefano from going after whoever did this. Later, after Roman goes, Rafe continues to press Sami. Finally, she snaps and says she knows who shot EJ. At the same time, EJ tells Stefano he knows who shot him. He claims he shot himself. He explains that he was drunk and thinking about committing suicide that night. Stefano corrects him by stating the facts. He believes it was most likely Sami, although now that he knows EJ took the gun out of the drawer, it could still be Will. Roman arrives to take EJ’s statement. Will EJ finger Sami? Vivian hopes Nicole will turn Brady in and get her out of the sarcophagus, but Brady starts to play Nicole. Vivian thinks Nicole is going to seduce Brady to get her out. However, Nicole is the one who falls for Brady’s seduction instead. Philip and Melanie lose another house and they find out Victor is behind it. It’s clear his intention is to keep them at Maggie’s so he’ll have an excuse to visit. Maggie is perplexed. She told him there could be nothing between them. Philip makes a decision and decides he and Melanie will move back into the mansion. Victor has no choice but to accept this. However, he’s slightly disappointed, as is Maggie.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Life-Sized Duke and Ava Scene?

Okurrrr! On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the long-running NBC soap opera served up a scene in which Ava (Tamara Braun) wakes up in bed and sees a life-sized Duke doll come to life in the doorway.

If you recall, Ava ripped the small-sized stuffed-animal, Duke to shreds, previously, with a scissor in a fit of rage as she appears to be losing her grip!

In this scene, Duke returns with pair of scissors in his hand and says he’s there for payback. Ava screams out. Next, she grabs a nail file to defend herself and tries to run, but Duke grabs her.

What does Ava do next? She bites Duke. He tells her that she’ll pay for that.  Next, we see a startled Ava in bed as Rafe (Galen Gering) appears at the doorway with coffee… and wait for it … a bear claw!

As Rafe informs Ava of the accusations against him at work, she asks if he thinks she is engineering this, considering he accused her of dismembering Duke?  Rafe says he believes she is not responsible for any of this. Oh, Rafe!

So, what did you think of the scene when you watched it between larger-than-life stuffed-animal-come-to-life Duke and Ava?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena’s Exorcism Brings a United Front to Rid Satan

In a great episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it the return of Greg Vaughan as “Father” Eric Brady to exorcize the devil out of Marlena (Deidre Hall) for the second time in her lifetime, but it was not easy.

First, in the bedroom, Sami (Alison Sweeney) finds Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) almost untying the MarDevil, after Satan threatens him with revealing he was the one who kidnapped Sami and even tells Sami, that Lucas has been lying to her! Lucas worms his way out of the situation saying that he has been lying about his feelings for Sami.

Meanwhile, an overwrought John (Drake Hogestyn) is so happy to see Eric in his mother’s time of need.  When Eric takes off his coat, he reveals that he is once again a man of the cloth – priest collar and all.  Eric fills John in that it was actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) who made him come to the realization that he wanted to serve God again, when she told him that ‘collar or no collar, he has never changed.”

Next, Eric meets the MarDevil and tells John to leave him alone with Satan.  MarDevil spews that Eric is an arrogant little man and that he will die.  Now the MarDevil questions how his parishioners who saw the videotape of him having sex with Kristen – although Eric reminds Satan he was drugged – would welcome him as a priest?  Next thing you know, MarDevil shows the infamous sex tape on a laptop! Then, Satan said she thought his true calling was working in “adult entertainment” not for God.

Going for the jugular, MarDevil morphs into OG Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and she is tied to the bed, cooing for Eric, for another roll in the hay.  Eric becomes drawn in and if it were not for Brady (Eric Martsolf) walking in on the scene, urging his brother to resist the devil’s tricks, who knows where this would have led!  But Eric does resist, and MarDevil returns, saying that the fallen priest and his boozy brother are no match for her!

Now that the family is all congregating in the living room not only has Brady arrived, but so too has Belle (Martha Madison), Allie (Lindsay Arnold), and Johnny (Carson Boatman).  Eric explains that they all need to band together to perform an exorcism on Marlena and rid the devil from her.  Lucas exits deciding it should be for immediate family only, and he is already concerned that Satan knows he kidnapped Sami.

In the bedroom, Marlena’s family surrounds the bed as Eric begins the exorcism.  The family prays as Eric asks everyone to join hands and say the Lord’s Prayer.  As they begin the prayer, wind begins to blow and the bed goes up and down as MarDevil is defiant that Marlena will never return.  When the bed settles down, everyone thinks it’s over, but MarDevil surprises everyone and still has a grip on Marlena.

MarDevil then verbally attacks Belle and reminds her that she was the first one to give up on Marlena when she was in a coma and how she cheats on the men in her life calling her a “cheap slut”.  That is followed in kind when MarDevil goes after Sami and calls her a “professional slut”.

Eric insist the family talk directly to Marlena.  They all become a united front as MarDevil is struggling to maintain control.  Then, in a fantastic series of flashbacks, we see Marlena’s memories coming through of each of her family members – and of course, best one ever, of all-time, is John and Marlena reuniting on the pier.

You then hear MarDevil let out a scream “No!” and then she passes out.  After everything is once again still in the room. John sits next to Marlena and calls her “Doc”.  She wakes up, saved!  It’s the Marlena everyone knows and loves!  She is saved on Christmas.   We fade to black.

What did you think of Marlena’s exorcism 2.0 and the episode? Let us know in the comment section below.  But first, check out this tweet of the flashback memories contained with the episode as Marlena fights the devil!

‘Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas’: What Did You Think of the Holiday Tale?

Riffing on Hallmark Channel holiday movies combined with inside Salem wink-winks and nudge-nudges, soap tropes, surprise returns and altered storyline shifts, Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas now streaming on Peacock, had something for everyone, that by the end of its almost one hour and twenty minute tale, you were in the holiday spirit.

In the streaming flick, Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Grant Tinker) are working hard to make sure Will makes his Christmas Eve deadline of turning in his holiday script. So the couple known as “WilSon” conjure up an altered “facts” story… sorta!

Now, Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are running the Brady Pub, because Roman has died.  Paulina (Jackée Harry) is now the Cruella de Vil of Salem aiming to put everyone out of business for her own gain.

Sami learns that Sydney is her biological daughter (something that in the airshow happened years ago) in order for a redux of the classic bitch-slap scene between this version of evil Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Sami.

Even though Nicole’s deception is revealed, she doesn’t end up completely alone after EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) dumps her for Sami.  A bum outside the Brady Pub hands her a tissue to wipe away her tears, and it’s revealed to be … Eric (Greg Vaughn in a cameo).

Elsewhere, John (Drake Hogestyn) is not married to Marlena (Deidre Hall), but Kristen (Eileen Davidson) and they run the Inn.  Meanwhile, as per usual, Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen are lusting after each other … complete with one of the best scenes in the special, where a naked Brady, covers his private parts with cue cards that profess his love for Kristen (a la Love Actually).  Meanwhile, Marlena is longing for John, even though he is with Kristen.

Paulina ‘s assistant turns out to be Leo (Greg Rikaart), and as he did in the previous Peacock streaming series … he saved the day! Leo, while going through files on Paulina’s desk, found a loophole that could save Salem business owners from being kicked to the curb.

And it was great to see one of the finest actors, Blake Berris, back on the screen as Nick and longing for Gabi (Camila Banus).  You see, Will writes Nick into his script, while Sonny exclaims that Nick is dead. But this is a holiday tale, so whatever!

In the end, it was the town pulling together for a holiday fundraiser to save themselves with a talent show hosted by Leo featuring: the return of Sonny Delight, Amanda Bottom and Belinda Chinashop, followed by a Santa strip from the hottest men in Salem and voila’ – it’s drag queens and half-naked guys that save the day!
