It’s a very big day for long time fans of EJami on NBC’s Days of our Lives!  When the stage is set for fireworks to explode, and their relationship possibly to implode on today’s episode!

The set-up has the incriminating photos of EJ (James Scott) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) in the throes of passion in an envelope that Sami (Alison Sweeney) got her hands on when it was slipped under the door at the DiMera mansion!

As Alison Sweeney has previewed in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, this is one of her all-time favorite episodes that she has been a part of in her over 20 years with the soap.

Sweeney also revealed: “The whole first half of the show is just the two of us in these really long scenes together dealing with Sami finding out what EJ had done.  It’s incredible.”

Alison later added, “I feel there was not-one stone left unturned in the conflict between the two as the two of then have it out over his unfaithfulness.”

So just how do you think this episode will in the end play itself out?  Will Sami forgive EJ? Will it be splittsville?  Look for Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kate Mansi (Abigail) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) to also appear later in the show.  We will have more coverage on this special episode this evening.

    Well…he raped her, and she shot him in the head….I dont see how a little boink with some chick with daddy issues is worse than either of those things. I am sure they can get past it.

      Boink? How crass. Abbi is pregnant, how bourgeois , …as I said, typically male.

      • FAS

        April 21, 2014 at 9:37 am

        I hope it does happen that way, …Abni pregnant and loses the baby…..Sami leaves EJ…..Abbi completely disappears…is this entire episode imaginary?

        Crass?? EJ’s 85 year old father called it “banging”! It was not making love because they are not in love. It was what it was…boinking, banging, bumping uglies…whatever word or term applies.

      • boes

        You’re right. I prefer the term “hump” myself,
        Not so bourgeois.

    I am looking forward to the episode, most specifically, the portrayal from James Scott as EJ Dimera. James brings his all to each and every scene, has chemistry with everyone on the show. I’ve always thought that Sami was too immature for EJ. For someone who is head of a successful company, has 4 children, etc., she acts like a child most of the time. For example, when she pouted about Will and Sonny having a nicer wedding than her and EJ. I just have never cared for the character. I think Kelly Sullivan (ex Connie/Kate from GH) would be an incredible recast.

      Gotta hand it to Ali Sweeney, just went home for lunch and watched today’s episode. AMAZING! Way to go to everyone who was featured on today’s show!

    Sami and E.J. deserve each other…didnt he rape her…didnt she shoot him…and yet they still wuv each other…so little Abigail is what it takes to break them up for good? Well, if they arent leaving town together…maybe on the run after Nick is found murdered, then i guess they will split up!!!…lol

    • dmr

      April 21, 2014 at 12:23 pm

      I’d love for someone to “off” Nick; that would be a great mystery-so many suspects!

        You don’t kill Hortons. You put them on islands.

      You are right, jimh. You always are . You always make sense. EJ’s and Sami’s horrific crimes are indisputable. Neither of them is a favorite to me personally. However, they have become accepted fixtures in our homes….it took a while. The majority of viewers like them, as I like you, jimh…lol…really!!! You are also right in what you are implying…that it takes Abigil to break them up? I get it….nothing could shake them loose….if a relationship is strong, then that love should be able to surmount everything. But, in my limited experience in the ways of love and relationships; deceit, betrayal, and all things pertaining to infidelity does a number on someone, no? I suppose we must all experience these hurts before we finally find the one…..but a cheater will always be a cheater . Thus, considering their reciprocated betrayals, EJ and Sami should not be too surprised if either of them deceives the other.

    Late to DAYS as I watched other now-cancelled soaps in the day, but since I have come to Salem, I have not been disappointed in how DAYS builds suspense and delivers these special episodes. Knowing the histories, I do understand infidelity may seem unlikely to break the camel’s back for EJ and Sami, but at least this is a very human real conflict… not about surprise resurrections, mistaken identities, or endless back-and-forth flirtations. I am looking forward to this.

    As I stated last week, I don’t think this is Stefano’s doing. I may be wrong but Percy slipped the pictures under the door.

    April 21, 2014 at 9:57 am

    I cannot believe a show would hype a dream sequence this much. It feels as if the show has lost all creative direction. I love soaps and it’s sad to see Days reduced to this.

    • dmr

      April 21, 2014 at 12:51 pm

      I was disappointed it was a dream sequence, too. Wonder when the true reveal will take place, the wedding in May, probably. May sweeps.

    • 4everDAYS

      The dream is just a fraction of what will really happen!

      Who or what is Jamison?

        I thing it’s James and Allison?

      • Mary SF

        April 21, 2014 at 3:26 pm

        I believe it is a reference to the actors James and Allison

    I hate that they even have to have these scenes. That said, I will be watching! I hope they aren’t done.

    • FAS

      April 22, 2014 at 8:14 am

      Perhaps they are preparing us…pave the way, per se, to rough waters? But isn’t mayhem the writers’s scope? ….or the imagery was devised to keep us in suspense and keep watching. Just my opinion …..

    Did I miss something…because this episode did not air!?

  12. Mary SF

    April 21, 2014 at 11:22 am

    What a rip off– hate when they pull that stunt– was royally ticked off– the actors will have footage for next year Emmy reel and that’s the only good thing to come of it. But for me two thumbs down, boo hiss– loved it until the twist then hated it.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 21, 2014 at 12:48 pm

      It was real good til they faked it…i hated it too!!!

    • Johnny

      April 21, 2014 at 12:58 pm

      Please….writers…..do NOT channel James E Reilly again and use his stupid extended dream sequences ever again! He almost ruined this show twice in the past and the damage he did to some characters and stories is still being repaired!!

    • FAS

      April 21, 2014 at 4:08 pm

      Yeah ! Copy that !

      That’s exactly what my mother said…almost verbatim. Lol

      • FAS

        April 22, 2014 at 10:20 am

        Verbatim of what you said Mary…you and she almost always say the same thing…lol

  13. AbbyS.

    April 21, 2014 at 11:38 am

    It was a fake out. At about the 35 minute mark, we all find out that EJ is imagining this. I get that Alison Sweeney is proud of her work, and James Scott’s, but at the end of the day, Sami is still clueless, EJ is still frightened, and the secret has yet to be revealed. I didn’t realize it was all in EJ’s imagination until he went over to Abby’s, and their dialogue didn’t ring true at all. Up till then, I thought JS and AS were good, though I thought AS needed some tears streaming down her face, or something to make it look like Sami was distraught because hearing her yell at him without tears didn’t work for me. Another thing I didn’t like was how speedy everything was, from Sami figuring it out, to EJ admitting he’d had an affair, to even Marlena criticizing EJ when she’d only seen the photo for about 2 seconds. I wish that the hype for this episode would have led to some forward motion for this story and for DOOL overall. They’re stuck in slo mo, or focusing on couples no one cares about like Jennifer and Daniel, for much too long. And they don’t know how to use Drake Hogestyn now that he’s back. TPTB are making all the wrong choices and IMO, making today’s heavily hyped episode all in EJ’s mind was yet another one.

    • dmr

      April 21, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      You hit the nail on the head about Daniel and Jennifer-snooze fest.

    • dmr

      April 21, 2014 at 12:54 pm

      I agree about the crying/yelling. I’ve never been a fan of Ali’s; but, I do think this episode was one of her best. James Scott always delivers. I think he could carry anyone through a scene.

    • Paul

      April 22, 2014 at 6:11 pm

      I couldn’t agree more about the TPTB making all the wrong choices. To hype a dream sequence the way they did was ridiculous. The show was a total waste of time — though I immensely enjoyed seeing Abs thrown over the staircase. If only that could happen every day.

  14. boes

    April 21, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    I cannot WAIT for this! The show, as much as I love it, sometimes moves a bit slowly. But when the “stuff” hits the fan, it’s great. And this promises to be mindblowing.
    Abigail better not have her hair in a bun next time she sees Sami. Sami is likely to pull it right off her head. And I’m so looking forward to listening to Jenn blather about it all. I don’t like Abigail, but I sorta feel sorry her since she has that smug, self-congratulatory harridan as a mother. And without a doubt, Jenn will make it all about her.

    • FAS

      April 21, 2014 at 4:09 pm

      Ha Ha!

      • FAS

        April 21, 2014 at 4:13 pm

        Oh, man…I love the way you think …you wrote my thoughts exactly. But, I feel no pity for her or her bun. As for Jen? What about her ?? Blah, blah, blah.

  15. Johnny

    April 21, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    Used up cow??? Wow…I sense some jealousy towards the fresh faced Ms. Mansi. While I hate the direction the show often takes Abigail, sympathy for Sami is a bit much. She was fairly “used up” by the time she was 18…..sleeping with Lucas, rapingAustin, being raped by Alan, etc.

  16. WilSon

    April 21, 2014 at 1:21 pm

    The show is just a dream! I was so irritated that I wasted my time.

    • Mary SF

      April 21, 2014 at 3:22 pm

      Exactly, not only did it waste our time it ruin the eventually true reveal because honestly those scenes before Marlena came in were brilliant and so beautifully acted and heart wrenching– nothing they will do when it is the real reveal will move me– so they ruined these scenes by making them fake, and ruined future scenes because nothing would top the fake ones— why or why do this writers do this stunt writing when they know how it ticks viewers off. I’m mad enough that I am considering boycotting DAYS because I don’t want to reward stunt writing that ruins my enjoyment of the show.

      • 4everDAYS

        April 21, 2014 at 6:38 pm

        I loved the fake out!

        What was so great about it was the fact that we know that EJ feels that Abby is pregnant.

  17. Mary SF

    April 21, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    You do realize none of those scenes really happened and it was only what EJ imagine what would happen if Sami saw the picture? Sami is still in the dark about the affair, but I am sure the truth will come out eventually, but just not today.

    • FAS

      April 21, 2014 at 6:30 pm

      Yes, I do now. But, Mary SF I was typing and posting while watching…lol…then I realized and asked if it was imaginary…they got me hook, line and sinker…Ha Ha

      • FAS

        April 22, 2014 at 7:24 am

        My mother was watching with me. She realized it before I did…we were going at it back and forth…lol…Moms are always right. And, you are right, Mary, the truth is bound to come out. I believe that Abbi is over her wanton urges for EJ, or so she says(unless she is kidding herself), so a pairing there might not be feasible when Sweeney leaves. A Sami recast, perhaps?

  18. boes

    April 21, 2014 at 6:09 pm

    Well THAT was a disappointment, although I’m also glad that this isn’t the way it will play out. But still, essentially a waste of time and talent.

    I will say, though, that I can never get enough of anyone, anytime, anywhere, pushing Abigail off any staircase. The higher, the better. After all, if she lands on her head there will be no permanent damage. Of course, the best would be if Jenn broke her fall and Abigail landed squarely in her big mouth.
    Now THAT is a dream!

  19. FAS

    April 22, 2014 at 10:05 am

    I am just wondering….Jen found the drugs in Daniel’s apartment and is in painful disbelief?!?!?! Lol …..what are the chance she will also find the planted, hidden bug (camera)? I hope she realizes that the same person who has framed Daniel also planted the pills. But, knowing Jen, she will assume the worst about Daniel, as is her wont.

    • Paul

      April 22, 2014 at 6:12 pm

      Jen has become such an annoying holier than thou harpie. I’m rooting for Liam.

  20. FAS

    April 24, 2014 at 9:30 am

    Well, we now know that it is about Liam’s first love interest, wife etc…an obsession which manifests itself with women who bear a resemblance to his first love. However, I object…Jen is too old, for one…secondly Jen cannot hold a candle to Dorothy.(is that her name?)… This is a very young woman in comparison to Jen…at least 20 years. But, considering Lism’s delusional personality and mental issues, any blonde will do, I guess. The brain is a complex network… So, now, The perils of Jennifer continue…so scary!! What a dumb storyline….Watch out, a Jen …the -Boogie -Man-a-comin’
    I would like to say that Sami should stay out of her son’s private life. She was never “into” Gabi…let’s face it, she is a busy-body. …reminds me of my older sister’s mother-in-law…lol.

  21. FAS

    April 25, 2014 at 9:58 am

    I do believe someone will kill Nick…but, who? He has amassed quite a few enemies, so it could be anyone.
    And, the hunt is on !!!!…. New storyline in the process.

  22. Amy from Australia

    April 27, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    EJAMI FOREVER! I know it will never happen but I don’t want Sami to find out! Why can’t Sami and EJ just be together? Why is someone always tearing them apart? Why can’t Abigail move to Switzerland and leave Ejami in peace? We only have a year left with Allison, can the writers just please let them be together for that entire time? We Ejami die hards have waited long enough! Australia loves Ejami!

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.

Broom

During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!
