Sami and Rafe share their engagement news with Caroline. Their celebration is cut short when Bo arrives with urgent news. In private, Bo tells Sami and Rafe that EJ has been shot. Sami already knows this, so she feigns shock; she’s truly stunned, however, when Bo says that EJ is still alive. Bo asks about Sami’s whereabouts, and Rafe says she was with him the whole night. After Bo leaves, Rafe can see Sami is rattled, but he thinks it’s because she feels guilty about wishing EJ had died. Carly and Daniel operate on EJ. He makes it through surgery but remains unconscious and in critical condition. Bo questions Stefano and Kate. Kate suspects Sami was responsible for shooting EJ, but keeps this to herself. She fears her phone call to Sami led to the shooting and fears what Stefano will do if he finds out. Nicole shows up at the hospital, and a livid Stefano points the finger at her. Nicole is able to provide an alibi. Vivian eavesdrops as Brady confronts Victor about his feelings for Maggie. Brady warns Victor not to hurt her. Later, Vivian listens in as Victor calls Maggie and expresses concern for her safety now that the DiMera feud might be back on. Victor thinks it’s best that Maggie is leaving on her trip. Once he’s off the phone, Vivian tells Victor she’s changed her mind – she’s not going to Tahiti. She wants to stick around for Isabella’s memorial. Nathan congratulates Chloe on her pregnancy. She’s offended when he asks if Daniel is the father and tersely assures him that he is. Elsewhere, Stephanie convinces Ian to help her determine who switched the paternity test. Meanwhile, Melanie tells Philip that she’s going to throw Chloe a baby shower.

Rafe and Sami head to the hospital to check on EJ. They arrive in time to hear Carly tell Stefano that EJ is steadily improving. Stefano blows up at the sight of Sami and accuses her of shooting his son. Bo gets Stefano to back down and Rafe insists Sami was with him the whole night. Stefano hopes EJ will awaken soon and tell everyone who tried to murder him. Sami grows nervous. Kate warns Sami that they need to talk. Stefano notes that Sami is already engaged to Rafe and calls her a whore. EJ takes a turn for the worse. Lexie discovers EJ left Sami in charge of his medical decisions. EJ’s life is now in Sami’s hands. Stefano is outraged. At the Cheatin’ Heart, Melanie tells Chloe she’s going to throw her a baby shower. Chloe is touched. After a shopping trip, Melanie and Chloe meet up with Carly, who offers to help with the shower. Vivian overhears and tries to snag an invitation, but Melanie blows her off and leaves. Vivian notes Carly and Chloe’s newfound friendship and questions them about it. Meanwhile, Melanie tells Maggie about her encounter with Vivian. Maggie thinks it’s her fault.Stephanie overhears that Philip left Chloe’s birthday party and disappeared for some time. She realizes this would be about the time the paternity test was switched. She tries to question him about it, but he angrily tells her to mind her own business. Later, Stephanie works with Ian to learn if Philip changed the test results.

Stefano pleads with a comatose EJ to pull through. Meanwhile, Sami seeks Daniel’s advice about knowing when to pull the plug on EJ. Lexie confirms to everyone that her brother’s brain activity is diminishing. Alone, Sami sits with EJ and contemplates what to do. Suddenly, EJ opens his eyes, and Sami freaks out. Is he waking up? Vivian hints to Carly that Chloe hasn’t told her new friend everything that happened. After Vivian leaves, Chloe confesses to Carly that she tried to kill her. Philip tells Vivian to stay away from Melanie. Vivian wants Philip to see that she’s an asset to the family. She mentions the project for Isabella but he is cruel to her. Philip asks Victor why he’s staying with Vivian. Later, Vivian inspects the tricked-out sarcophagus with Gus. Maggie explains to Melanie that Vivian is jealous of her friendship with Victor. Melanie tries to convince Maggie to stay in town, and then realizes she’s leaving because of her feelings for Victor. Maggie hotly denies it. Later, Daniel is pleased when Melanie tells him she’s throwing the shower for Chloe. Ian uses his computer smarts to figure out that Philip could not have changed the paternity test. Stephanie now believes it might have been Chloe. Nathan walks in on Stephanie and Ian, and wonders what they’re up to.

Lexie tells everyone that EJ’s condition remains the same. In private, Kate asks Sami what she did after Kate told her EJ was planning to kidnap the children. Sami lies that she did nothing. They agree to keep Kate’s phone call a secret. Abe informs Lexie and Stefano of the type of gun that was used to shoot EJ. Stefano privately realizes it was a gun that was kept at the house. He rushes home and discovers the gun is missing! Stefano tells Kate about the missing weapon and points a finger at Sami. Will learns that EJ has been shot. He goes to the hospital and tells Sami that he knows what she did. Sami is stunned after Will states that he saw her leaving the DiMera mansion that night. Sami tries to deny it, but finally admits that she was there. Will tries to get her to admit she shot EJ, but Rafe interrupts. Earlier, Rafe tells EJ to wake up and face the consequences of what he’s done. Arianna comes upon Rafe and asks what he’s doing. They argue over EJ.  Maggie decides to stay in town and help Melanie plan Chloe’s baby shower. Maggie later observes Victor’s softer side as he bonds with Ciara. Her feelings for him resurface, and she decides she must leave for her trip immediately. Melanie once again confronts Maggie about her feelings for Victor. Meanwhile, Victor learns from Daniel that Maggie is staying in town for a while. In the mausoleum, Vivian forces Gus to get into the sarcophagus to make sure all the monitors and audio feeds work. After being set free, Gus tells his Madame that she must not go through with her plans. They argue as Carly comes upon them. Carly threatens Vivian and tells her to stay away.  Chloe and Carly put the past behind them. Elsewhere, Nathan asks Stephanie for the truth about why Ian is hanging around all the time. He points out that Ian has a crush on Stephanie. She is relieved Nathan doesn’t know what she’s up to. Stephanie admits Ian has feelings for her but she doesn’t have any for him. Later, Stephanie plans with Ian how to prove that Chloe changed the paternity tests. She then shows up unexpectedly at Chloe’s door…

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.
