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.

Dumb. The actors must be outraged given this dialogue.

I agree with you. And Gabi needs to be severely punished for what she has done ASAP

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 further inspiration from the Cheney story and take Stefan’s heart out of Julie’s chest entirely, and replace it with a mechanical pump.

In either case, I’m assuming this idiocy will be wrapped up this week one way or another, since they couldn’t possibly have this sort of medical terrorism dragging on for the entire “missing year” that’s going to disappear sometime during Friday’s episode.

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, but he has completrly jumped the shark here and there is no coming back from that. There Lani sat…broken and crumpled on the ground…instead of crying and pushing Eli away….did she ever think “Hey…we are both cops! Lets go, knock that phone out of her hands, and arrest her and throw away the key!”. When a fantasy (of Lani knocking Gabi down) makes more sense than what actually happens, that is just BAD writing!!Ron’s writing is completely predictable, because characters aleays react exactly how you think they will. The surprise, “never been done in daytime” would have been if Lani did go through with the wedding! Gabi is an awful character now. She is disturbing and unpleasant to watch. She should have her daughter taken away from her once and for all. She drugged one Horton while she was pregnant. She is threatening to murder an elderly Horton. Her daughter is a Horton!!!!! We have enough one-note female psychos on this show….Gina, Eve, Kristen, Vivian etc. Gabi has paid NO consequences for any of her crimes. If the Hortons forgive her after this that is just too much. She is clearly a sociopath. She is far worse than Nick Fallon. He tried to rape her, she killed him. She drugs and terrorizes pregnant women…basically raping them of their mind and soul. She gleefully threatens to murder an elderly woman while plotting misery and heartache against friends and family of loved ones. There is nothing even remotely entertaining or redeemable about Gabi. End this….because if its still going on after the time jump that qualifies for worst story ever!!!

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.
