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 Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.
