Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Bring the Heartache and Heartbreak to DAYS’ Elani Wedding

Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives showcased the nuptials of now long-suffering duo, Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers).  In true soap opera fashion things didn’t look good for the couple to get hitched in the first place, especially with Gabi’s (Camila Banus) threats that she would literally blow Julie’s (Susan Seasforth Hayes) heart out of her chest, if Lani did not bust up with Eli at the altar.

As Marlena (Deidre Hall) is officiating the ceremony, things took a dark turn when she asked if anyone in attendance could show just cause why the couple should not be wed in holy matrimony.  Everyone is silent as Gabi, who is an attending the nuptials, is quite happy with herself broadcasting the wedding from her phone to Julie who is in the hospital.  Next, an emotional Lani tells Gabi how sorry she is for shooting Stefan.  Lani says she hopes Gabi can set aside their differences for the sake of Julie and Eli.  Gabi tells her she thought she made herself clear.  It appears that Lani decides she is moving forward with the vows, after standing up for herself and ignoring Gabi’s threat after tackling Gabi WWE Smackdown style.  Next, Gabi informs to everyone she just pressed the button on the app on her phone and Eli’s grandmother’s heart exploded. But hold the phone! In that moment, there is a twist.  We go back to Lani at the altar who snaps out of this blackmail nightmare she just played out in her head.  That didn’t really happen, but the audience sees her thinking process through it, which leads Lani in the present to break off the wedding to her beloved Eli.

 

At the altar, Lani tells Eli through her tears she cannot do this.  Eli is stunned and confused.  The bride tells him he doesn’t deserve this.  Next, Lani turns towards Gabi, and then tells Eli she is sorry and then runs out of the ceremony.   Gabi mutters that her “work is done here” which seems to be overheard by Will (Chandler Massey).

What follows is absolutely devastating scene in the park as Eli has followed Lani there.  Through her tears, and knowing that the only way she can break things off with Eli is to hurt him deeply, Lani tells him at first that she doesn’t deserve to be happy with a husband, because she shot and killed Gabi’s.  However, Eli won’t accept that, and that is when she has to muster everything inside her to break Eli’s heart in pieces.  She tells the man she loves that she doesn’t love him anymore. Lani says that she thought that after baby David’s death and all they went through to be together it would all fall back into place for them, but for her, it didn’t.

Lani says her decision is made. With tears streaming down his face, Eli cries, “So you’re leaving me? That’s it?” Lani confirms it is, and that she is sorry and then runs off.  Cue none other than Gabi to find a gut-punched Eli on the park bench, who she hugs! Looks like there’s a part two to Gabi’s heinous plan ahead.

The performances by Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers in this episode were top-notch – their work was and even though it was under the most outrageous of circumstances, you felt the love, the heartbreak and heartache of a couple torn apart, when they love each other so much.

So, what did you think of Lamon and Sal’s performances? What did you think of the final moments of the episode when Lani has to dump Eli for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Agreed. GH has a DUMB memory mapping storyline STILL going on-it’s unwatchable.

This is so ridiculous. Lani & Eli are cops. Two cops couldn’t overpower a crazy woman and knock a cell phone out of her hands? Not to mention the whole idea of a wi-fi pacemaker is ridiculous. ReRon claims he was inspired by the real life circumstances of Darth Cheney, but Cheney had an actual defibrillator installed in his chest, and that did require a wi-fi connection, and presented security concerns, since Cheney went out of his way to create enemies. Pacemakers don’t have that capability, nor would there be any reason to network one of them. Maybe they’ll take… Read more »

Hallelujah! Lani has MORE than enough to arrest Gabi and lock her up for life!! She has a confession that Gabi has intent to murder Julie, she has her for blackmailing an officer of the law, she witnessed Gabi rev up that heart device which could have killed Julie…that is attempted murder. She could arrest her for criminal networking with the bionic company, and for possession of a deadly weapon. If Gabi was waving a gun around instead of the cell phone, that would be the only difference. Ron C has done a lot of stupid things in his writing,… Read more »

Time to give Gabi the consequences of her actions. First, have Rafe and everyone else know what she has done. Second, have Will so angry and disgusted by what Gabi has done that he gets permanent sole physical and legal custody of their daughter. And Gabi is allowed no access to the child

And for Hell’s sake, can we PLEASE get rid of that show wrecking abomination fraudulently calling itself “Eve” already.

I know the OLTL fans love her, but she was nothing but air hogging poison on GH, and has ruined every episode of Days she ever appeared in. She had better be a permanent casualty of the “time jump”. Or better yet, replaced by the REAL Eve Donovan.

That “show wrecking abomination” Kassie DePaiva is one the best actors that has ever been on Daytime. Every time Kassie is on screen she gives a Master’s Class in Acting.

Satan, I agree with you. I know many do like her, but I am not one. Hopefully , she’ll be gone after the time jump. There’s nothing in Salem anymore for her, except to rejoice over Jennifer’s mishap. I for one will not be watching. In all the years of watching soaps, I have never stopped watching one just because I didn’t like the SLs, but this is beyond stupid and unbelievable. I FF through so much that I might as well not bother. Also I am not looking forward to the return of the two boringest people,Chad and Abby.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.
