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’ 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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
