If you saw the juicy final moments of Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives!, it looks like Sami (Alison Sweeney) has hatched a plan and hired her goons to do the dirty work, whereby she has had Ben Weston kidnapped from the mental institution, and put in a room at the Salem Inn.

Sami has plan to help get her son Will’s (Chandler Massey) memory back by reverting to very extreme measures to jog the floodgates open.

This ushers in another return by Rob Scott Wilson, who now has brought Ben into soapdom cult favorite mode.

Wilson tweeted yesterday following the reveal of DAYS airing in all markets: “The woman brings it … my hands are tied. @Ali_Sweeney”

Don’t miss this week’s remaining episodes …  it’s going to be “Crazy Town”.

So, excited to see Rob back?  What do you think of the plot twist? Comment below!

Its a little far fetched but this is Days and Ron C. writing…at least the show is a lot better than a year ago!!!

How true, Jimmy!
You know what I think? Ben cannot be so bad, if he could not go through with the fake strangulation of Will.
This fact, however minute, leads me to believe that TPTB are trying to redeem him? Considering Rob’s lauding, as Ben, by the fans; there may be that possibility. What say you? Is Ben here to stay? ……As a bad guy turned good? A brain tumor? LOL.

Maybe some type of split personality disorder, Celia. It was already established that Ben, as well as Jordan, were abused by their father. Jordan was originally named Tammy Sue and Ben was Ollie or Oliver, but Ben had also gone by a different name in Florida, which is where he knew Eve and Paige. They were patrons at the diner he worked at…

He could be a bad guy turned good but still a bad guy pretending to be good-lol….why not Days have had them!!!!!!!

@4ever DAYS.
HI, 4ever,
Yes, you’re right….I had stored all that info in one of the recessed corners of my brain, LOL.
A dual personality makes sense. I love Rob ( since AMC) ….so, I will take him back ; hopefully as a good guy. He’s so good-looking and graces my screen effortlessly—he’s so angelic looking!! LOL.

At least it keeps him on screen! Wish they never ruined the character but he did a great job as Batty Ben.

I am excited to see him back. He was a snooze as the do-gooder, but when he went psycho, that is when he became a great actor. I think it shows that some actors are really better playing against type.

However, Sami is in real danger of losing Will forever. Too bad she can’t just let him get to know her without her shenanigans, but then again, that would not be Sami. It’s a catch-22.

All the storylines being pen out by Ron Carlivati is so ironic,On Days of our lives.
Its like watching General Hospital, Round 2 with Ron Carlivati’s writing!!! Not impress at all with his Head Writing duties with Days. FF to next scenes.. Seen it on General Hospital, already but with different Actors. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

Jeremy, I so agree with you on Ron C’s writing which is not my cup of tea at all…To me, DOOL was at it’s best in the 70’s and 80’s…character driven drama…

I love him! He can come back as often as he can. Hot! Hot! Hot!! And I am 67.

this is thee time to catch up with Sami

can any one ?

it’s been very interesting watching her flit to and fro ; reign herself in ; come to terms with – per Marlena – waiting her turn to see Will truly come “home”

Sami is now a full fledged woman
Sami is now gaining on maturity
Sami is so impatient and rears herself of ole’
Sami is just being Sami –  hum?  doesn’t get old with OUR Ali Sweeney REEL

I truly think RC and AS and the cast will be fully acknowledging just how much Sami has done for this Fantastic Show.  honoring this character

the excitement .. the heart swell… the longing for Will. her son, to get his memory back. this story , from here on out.. is our chance at getting to see all the layers of Ali Sweeney and RC take on what makes Sami.

dag! HOW does any one… get over : two humongous loss’ with EJ and Will.

tears

shes hanging on as only we know Sami. this is tantamount to seeing all the emotions split reach and mobilize her as never before.

so… it’s great to see two actors.. Ali and Chandler each telling their own story… and how the middle ground and celebration of will surface

can you imagine from a mother perspective… yeah, it’s regurge.. yet .. when you are that close to this show… it’s playing out in fine form… kudos

oy! i’m just waiting for Lauren Koslow ( grandma kate )turn – for Will and Theo

Rob Scott Wilson.. it’s me again. Salute

Any reason is a good one for his return. He’s a wonderful actor and incredibly sexy and beautiful as well. I still wish Y&R would have cast him as Scott Grainger.

This storyline should’ve been featured in this week’s promo, not Rope.

I love having Robert Scott Wilson back on Days. Seeing him makes me wish they could somehow redeem his character. But as long as Paige and the red head who’s name escapes me are still dead, that dosn’t seem possible. Have the writers forgotten he also killed Abbi’s midwife?

Iakovos

I liked the Ben Weston storylines. Not sure character can be redeemed enough to return actor to full-time canvas but… the new writing regime can probably make him a long lost twin of a never before known Horton.

Andrew Hass

I’m sure Days could bring Rob Scott Wilson back as Ben’s twin brother.The story could be that mother sent one twin away to keep him safe from Clyde.The twin could come to Salem to try to make amends for what Ben did.

Satan

It’s only a matter of time before ReRon drags out the “brain tumor” excuse for Ben’s psychotic serial killer behavior. Just like he did on GH when he resurrected a dead serial killer in order to keep one of his One Life to Live pets employed (after a lawsuit prohibited him from using the OLTL character names)

Omar

Great idea Iakovos…If Rob Scott Wilson is available, he should be brought back full time..I saw it a few years ago in the AMC reboot that this actor is not just looks but has good acting chops and a big screen presence.

Sami is a mother….I would not have used such tactics (unless not in my right mind, LOL).
Why did the writers go there?
To use the old cliche’, ” desperate times call for desperate measures” ( paraphrasing); Sami IS desperate to get her son back, wholly!!…. Can’t blame her too much….I don’t know what that was all about; but, I can say for a certainty Massey is the BOMB!!!!
The scene with Ali in the aftermath of the “strangling” by Ben, was crazy, outrageous, good!!!!!
Give this guy a 10++, and then some. WOW!! It was so very real…..face redness, breathless, coughing and all.
Good “shew”, applause, applause!!

Patrick
Patrick

“…I would not have used such tactics (unless not in my right mind, ”

OK – you threw me in to hysterics

RC imagination … to feature the dramatic REEL of all involved

Ben – Sami – Will

FEATURING bigger than life

I’m impressed with Chandler Massey REEL. not over the top nor is it unbelievable

his calm demeanor is working

I have to say.. I did not think CM had it in him

for a character to be so beloved by all of Salem… and most of the audience… I truly have to hand it to CM

CM… you have earned your keep… had to say that… and I mean it… “He’s still as adorable as ever”

I would think that any one would come to his defense.

one of the things he spoke about in past SOD issue… is that he was so young when he started on this show.. and grew up on… ??? 8 plus years ? and he needed that 2-3 year MIA to mature and EXPERIENCE life. ??? so that he had life experiences to draw from

so i’m just celebrating his return

like Grandma kate and Grandma Marlena…. this is your grandpa .. I LOVE YOU

Celia
Celia

Love your style, Patrick….
Truth and compassion….and, yes….Chandler, as I said as soon as he returned, has grown up. I am enchanted…..now, let’s see Vivian—-can’t wait!!

That was so disturbing to watch — especially a second time with the original Will.

I was surprised he didn’t choke the life out of him again and then Sami have to rush to revive him. She kept saying she had the men there to stop it from going too far, but asphyxiation is a slippery slope. I doubt she had paramedics standing by.

With Ben stopping himself, I wonder if it means his character can be made good once again and that is something they might want to explore some day.

Celia
Celia

Very adeptly put, Chrystie……..”disturbing to watch”…. sooo agree with you.
Yet, in the midst of the offensive, negative image before our eyes, a positive has been borne.
Chandler outdid himself—proved how much he belongs on stage. Bravo!!
I thought the same thing about Ben….I think we all thought along those lines. Are “they” redeeming Ben? I repeat….will he be ‘tumorized’, or shall I say, ‘de-tumorized’?, LOL.

Rick

Agreed. Everyone did a fantastic job on today’s show. Chandler mentioned in interviews that it was physically intense doing the strangulation scenes perhaps this is what he meant. Nice change in voice, watery eyes, and facial intensity.

Robert Scott Wilson did a great job and it is always fun to know he’s in town cuz something is about to go down! Is it possible for him to he be a citizen in Salem but not be insane, just always on edge? Creeping people out and NOT get boring (IMO) like his character was prior to Batty Ben. I know! Since he expressed remorse for hurting Will a couple of times and now Sami may have made his suffer a setback – in a twist of irony the courts assign Marlena to be his psychiatrist specifically because she’s related to both Will and Sami. Her insight can help expedite his recovery – you know, how a scenario like that can happen in soap land. HA But let Ben miss a session or two and oh dang! Meanwhile, he’s free to roam around Salem skeeving people out with the proverbial one or two people who’ll give him a chance (heck maybe even Will would see him as a victim trying to get better). Perhaps build his character and make us sympathetic to him. Chad would be enraged, of course! Kinda intense, I think.

That would be fun to watch and keep Robert Wilson on our screens if even as a recurring.

Not sure where you go from there since he’s great insane but RC can figure something out. I can only get you started writing team. 🙂

Anytime they want to bring Rob back, I’m happy.

I get what Sami is going for. She’s desperate and very impatient. I feel sorry for her that Will is so against her. Susan sure did a good job turning him against her.

Chandler did a great job. Rob as well.

Looking forward to seeing where this story goes.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lives Are Forever Changed When Kristen and Xander’s Plans Blow Up In Pivotal Episode

In an explosive and can’t miss episode of Days of our Lives, all roads lead to a warehouse that appears to be filled with presumed dead bodies of former Salemites!  Behind the experiments and illegal activities going on in this creepy place are Xander (Paul Telfer) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk)!  This takes us to the action where Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who has been forced under Xander’s thumb, knocks him out and takes the recording of her confession to murdering Deimos, as she desperately tries to find Eric (Greg Vaughan), who has been tied up to a chair in another part of the warehouse thanks to Kristen!

Nicole is traumatized with baby Holly in tow as she comes upon a confusing maze of locked door with the initials VA, AD, AV, SD, ED, JD, and WR on them.  Had you figured out who they all stand for???   Brady (Eric Martsolf) hears Nicole calling out for Eric and is now locked in the E.D. marked room thanks to Sami (Alison Sweeney), who is searching for EJ!  Brady asks Nicole to let him out, she says “no” and not until she finds Eric!

Kristen, who has Eric hostage, tells him that she and Xander need to move precious cargo in the warehouse and the building has been compromised! Sami finds her brother with Kristen! She demands to know where EJ is and attacks Kristen.  Cut to another shocker! Dr. Rolf (William Utay) is alive and prepares a large syringe for his mystery patient.  He explains to the man that the formula was far from perfected back then when they tried to use it, so he understands how apprehensive the patient would be trying it again. After injecting the patient, who we believe could be EJ, Rolf tells him Samantha Brady is here in the warehouse!  The man jumps up on the hearing of Sami’s name and grabs Rolf, but then a Bunsen burner is knocked over by accident and Rolf yells, “Fire!”  Then, the burner explodes in the man’s face like a fireball!

Elsewhere, Xander comes in and finds the Sami/Eric/Kristen situation as sounds of explosions rock the warehouse and everyone starts screaming. Xander and Kristen run out, Sami frees Eric, then rushes out to mind the man she believes is EJ.  But then, rubble falls upon Nicole and she is separated from Eric and Brady.  She fits Holly fits through a hole and Brady runs out of the building with the little girl leaving star-crossed loves Eric and Nicole holding hands through the rubble.

Kristen finds Brady outside with Holly and begs him to come with her.  She wants him back and he tells her no way, and she tells him he will be sorry for this! She runs back inside the burning building.  Sami goes into the lab and calls EJ’s name, but she sees Dr. Rolf and he runs out.  Sami gets the burned man out of the blazing inferno!

Back inside, Nicole begs Eric to watch over Holly, as she is not going to make it out of the fire.  Brady runs back in to save his brother, and hits him with a crowbar, when he won’t leave Nicole and could die himself. A gut-wrenched Nicole knows she is left to die with no way out!  Outside the warehouse, Eric comes to and loses it when he realizes Brady saved him and left Nicole inside!  Next, the warehouse door explodes!  Brady and Eric can’t get back in to save Nicole.

Inside, as the warehouse burns around her, Kristen says she is not afraid, and turns and reveals the Phoenix tattoo on her back! Looks like she is burning herself in the fire only to rise again!

But that’s not all! Rex has returned to Salem in the form of Kyle Lowder making his debut as Kate and Roman’s son. You remember the Gemini Twins???  During Lowder’s first scenes back in Salem (he previously played Brady Black), Ron Carlivati and the DAYS writing team took the opportunity to give us some quickie Rex history including that: sister Cassie was stuck in a piñata and left for dead once, and how he and Cassie fell out of the sky!  Now in present day, Rex tells Roman (Josh Taylor) he is engaged and before he can tell his dad her name, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) walks in with Baby Bonnie.  Rex holds the baby, not knowing that elsewhere Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath) is confessing to Belle (Martha Madison) that Rex is the true bio-dad of Baby Bonnie!
