Lauren and Jana are hopeful that the fire will burn enough to catch someone’s attention until Ryder arrives and sees what is going on. Meanwhile, Sarah tries to convince Patty that Michael and Phyllis are the only things that stand between their ultimate goals and killing them is the only way to get it. At the mansion, Jack asks Jamie for more background on Emily, trying to figure out just who his wife is. Later, when Patty has a hard time with the idea of killing someone in cold blood, Sarah plays on Patty’s insecurities. Everyone tries to stop Victor from confessing but he won’t back down. Michael manages to get a word alone with Victor but Victor only tells him and Nick that it is time the world knew how Adam died. Michael and Nick both plead with Victor to think about what he is doing but Victor refuses to change his mind. Outside the interrogation room, Phyllis wonders to Nick and Sharon if maybe Victor is actually finally telling the truth about Adam’s murder. Daisy arrives as Ryder is stomping out the fire and realizes that someone may have seen the smoke already. Daisy tells Ryder to gag Lauren and Jana while she tries to head off anyone who may come looking for the fire. Meanwhile, Jack bursts in Patty’s session with Sarah to bring Jamie by and Sarah gets out of the line of fire quickly. Patty greets Jamie warmly and tries to use the information Emily gave her about her brother, which she quickly realizes was false. Overwhelmed by Jack’s scrutiny, Jamie and Sarah’s plan, Patty bursts into tears. Later, a cop shows up at the zoo in search of the source of the fire and Daisy and Ryder put on a show for him until Ryder gets arrested while pretending to be a homeless man who started the fire. Victor recounts for Owen and Chance how he killed Adam. Nick, however, refuses to believe that Victor could ever kill his own flesh and blood. Phyllis and Sharon are in agreement that they would rather see Victor go to prison than Nick because Nick’s children need him right now. Later, Chance doesn’t believe a word of Victor’s confession and decides to lock both Victor and Nick up. Patty sidesteps her bizarre behavior by saying that she just always wanted a strong connection with her siblings and wished she had that with Jamie. Jack tells her that she and Jamie can start over but right now they need to get down to the police station because Chance has more questions about Adam. Jack arrives at the police station with Patty and Jamie and while Patty is giving her statement, Jack learns that Victor has confessed to Adam’s murder but doesn’t buy that he is doing it for selfless reasons. Chance gets in Phyllis’s face about Nick and Jack is forced to pull her aside to calm her down. Phyllis admits to Jack that for at time she believed that Nick may have killed Adam for Sharon and Faith. Meanwhile, Patty bribes Jamie to leave town by giving him Emily’s prescription pad and some cash. Lauren manages to get free from her binds and scratches Sarah. Meanwhile, Michael sees Ryder being booked at the police station and confronts him about what has happened to Lauren and why she seems so different. Later, Jamie tells Jack that “Emily” has definitely changed as he leaves the station. Sarah calls Patty and asks her if she is in on the plan and Patty agrees to it. Phyllis and Sharon decide to work together to clear Nick’s name. Meanwhile, Victor continues to tell Nick that he killed Adam but Nick refuses to believe it.  While at Mac’s doctor’s appointment, Lily tells Cane that her doctor wants to start her on chemo again but that it could save her life or it could also kill her. Later, Cane and Lily learn that they are having a little boy and girl, which overwhelms Lily. Neil and Ashley’s intimate night together is interrupted when Tucker shows up uninvited. Ashley, however, is stunned when Tucker asks her to take over as CEO of Jabot. Later, Tucker pitches Ashley as to why he wants her at Jabot and only her and Ashley agrees to consider it but Neil can see that she really wants it. Lauren and Jana realize that Sarah is going after everyone Sheila had a grudge against, which includes Amber. Meanwhile, Daniel sees Amber sketching a picture of her and Little D and the distance between them continues to grow. Sarah learns that Michael and Kevin are about to question Ryder at the station and she calls Daisy to make sure she stops it before Ryder can tell them anything. At the station, Ryder won’t tell Michael anything but is affected when Michael tells him that Kevin is on his way down. Later, Lauren and Jana plan what their life will be like once they finally get out of their cage and free of Sarah. Kevin arrives at the station and tells Ryder that he has no reason to live anymore without Jana and Ryder tells him that he can give Kevin a reason. Meanwhile, Daniel takes Fen out for a “guys” night Amber feels left out until “Lauren” stops by for a visit. Amber spills to Sarah everything about Little D and Deacon’s “Dragon Lady” that he was hiding his son from, unaware that Sarah is the one that that Deacon was referring to. Later, just as Kevin is getting to Ryder, Ryder is reminded just how dangerous Sarah is and refuses to tell Kevin anything about where Jana is. Meanwhile, Amber and Daniel let Sarah leave with Fen and Amber admits to Daniel that the reason she is thinking about Little D today is because it’s his birthday.

Jill runs into Tucker and he tells her that he found the perfect woman to run Jabot and she mistakenly believes that he is referring to her. Meanwhile, Neil isn’t interested in talking about Tucker or his offer, instead he grabs Ashley and kisses her deeply, to which she responds which leads them back to making love. Later, Jill realizes that Tucker isn’t talking about her as the CEO of Jabot and ends up throwing her drink in Tucker’s face. At Brad’s, Neil tells Ashley that he will support her no matter what she decides about Tucker’s offer, but does offer a word of warning not to trust him. As Cane and Mac are discussing the babies, Lily begins to wonder if she will even be around when the babies are born. Later, Lily tells Cane that she will do the chemo and whatever else it takes to be here when their children are born. Amber and Daniel realize that they just want different things in their lives. Meanwhile, Lauren promises Jana that they will be home with their families before the full moon. Later, Michael learns that Ryder posted bail and that “Lauren” picked up Fen from Daniel’s without his permission.

Michael isn’t happy when he finds Sarah and Fen at the coffeehouse and takes Fen with him leaving Sarah angry and alone. Later, Sarah gets a call from Patty who wants to discuss their “plan.” Everyone who was at the cabin gathers at the Abbott mansion at Phyllis and Sharon’s bequest. Patty arrives and makes a scene when she sees Phyllis there which forces Jack other the edge and he blurts out that he wants a separation from Emily. After Patty leaves, Sharon and Phyllis make a plea to the group to band together and take a stand against the D.A.’s office. They ask them to help them sue the office in order to send a message to the D.A. that what he is doing to their families has to stop. Later, Heather and Rafe refuse to help the Newmans or Abbotts with the suit and Michael advises them that it could backfire on them which makes Ashley decide against it as well. She tells them that she would do anything that gets her locked with Victor and she can’t admit that she doesn’t believe Victor didn’t kill Adam. Daniel and Amber continue to argue over the issue of Little D and their marriage. After seeing how much Amber is hurting Daniel tries to come up with a compromise. Later, Amber begins to panic when she can’t get a hold of her mother in Furnace Creek. Amber tells Daniel that she will wait 24 hour to hear from her mother, otherwise she is going to look for Little D. Owen starts to threaten Nick and Victor when he doesn’t get the answers he is looking for. Meanwhile, Jack and Ashley are shocked when they decide to pass on the lawsuit but Billy sides with the Newmans. Billy presents his case that Adam had too many enemies to count, even outside this room. Just as he is swaying Jack and Ashley, Owen arrives to the party. Meanwhile, Heather reveals to Rafe that she tipped Owen off to the meeting at the Abbotts. Heather wonders to Rafe if Emily was telling the truth about her identity at the mental ward. Sarah tells Patty that they are going to kill Michael and Phyllis tomorrow. Later, Sarah and Patty plot the perfect murders and perfect alibis. Sarah gives Patty a gun and makes sure she knows to use it. Meanwhile, Rafe convinces Heather to run a DNA test on the cup that Emily gave her. Nick and Victor continue to try protect one another but Victor refuses to budge and reminds Nick that he still has a baby he needs to get to know and family to go home to. Meanwhile, Owen tells the group at the Abbott’s that he is giving them all a chance to clear themselves by taking lie detector tests, otherwise he will charge them all with conspiracy to commit murder. Later, Michael advises the group to start cooperating with the authorities. Victoria apologizes to Billy for the way she treated him after he alibied her for Adam’s murder but when he tries to kiss her she stops him and tells him that she is going to play hard to get, which only intrigues him more. Meanwhile, Owen learns that they found Adam’s cell phone from the basement in the G.C.A.C. Patty and Sarah go over the last minute details of their plan to eliminate Michael and Phyllis just as Michael arrives at the apartment to get something for Fen. Michael asks Sarah if there is anyway they can salvage their marriage and Sarah, cryptically tells him that after tonight it won’t matter. Meanwhile, Jack tells Patty that he is going to see Phyllis and Patty blurts out that Jack can’t, knowing that he will ruin Sarah’s plan. At the zoo, Lauren has a dream that she is home with Michael but just as the dream is playing out perfectly, Fen comes running into her arms but doesn’t recognize her. Lauren wakes up and quietly sobs as Ryder watches her from a distance. Sarah makes a plan to meet Michael later, knowing that he won’t be there to meet her. Meanwhile, Lauren pushes Ryder to be a man and stand up to Sarah and Daisy before it is too late. Later, Sarah tells Daisy about her plan to kill Michael and Phyllis and then Sarah tells Daisy that Daisy will be the one to kill Phyllis. Ryder comes upon them just as Sarah manages to manipulate Daisy into agreeing to kill Phyllis for her and Ryder is horrid as he listens to their plan, wondering who they are talking about. Phyllis tells Nick about her and Sharon’s plan to sue the D.A.’s office and Nick wonders if it will only make Owen angrier but Phyllis refuses to sit back and let Nick go to prison. Michael takes pleasure in serving Owen his lawsuit papers in front of Nick and Phyllis. Meanwhile, as Jack is trying to talk to Patty about their separation, Patty starts to hallucinate that Emily is in the room with them telling Patty that she is falling apart. Owen offers Nick a deal but Nick remains adamant that he did nothing wrong and Michael demands that Owen release him, Owen, however, refuses. Later, Owen tells Nick that unless he cooperates he will charge Phyllis with obstruction of justice and his children will have two parents behind bars. Lauren decides to go to extremes to get out of the cage and asks Jana to pretend to pass out in order to get Ryder to come into the cage so that they can over power him and escape. Meanwhile, as Sarah is telling Daisy her plan, Patty calls and tells her that they have a problem. Patty tells Sarah about Jack and Sarah tells her that she needs to pull it together no matter what. Later, Ryder confronts Daisy after hearing that they are going to kill Phyllis and Michael and tells her they can’t trust Sarah but Daisy refuses to listen. When Ryder isn’t paying attention, Daisy steals his keys to the cage and walks away. After hearing everything that is going on with “Lauren,” Phyllis offers to talk to her for Michael. Meanwhile, Patty tries to play the part of Emily very closely in order to convince Jack to stay home while she heads off to the police station. At the amusement park, Ryder confesses to Lauren and Jana that Daisy and Sarah are going to kill Phyllis and Michael. Patty runs into Michael at the police station and asks if she set up a meeting later to talk about Lauren. Meanwhile, Jack finds Patty’s diary and grows even more concerned when he sees that all that is written in is gibberish. Later, as Lauren panics for husband and friend, Sarah arrives at Phyllis’s.

Lauren pleads with Ryder to call the police and stop Sarah and Daisy’s plan to kill Michael and Lauren. Meanwhile, Sarah startles Phyllis who asks her to come in to talk as Daisy skulks in the shadows, waiting. Amber and Daniel fight over the fact that Amber has decided to fly to California to look for Little D and Amber storms out. At the coffeehouse, Amber explains to Kevin and Michael about her fight with Daniel and Michael sympathizes with Amber’s ordeal. Later, Sarah is caught when Daniel calls Phyllis and offers to bring her dinner in order to get talk to her about Amber. Patty is caught off guard when Chance presents her with a broken cell phone and tells her that they found Adam’s fingerprints all over it. He asks her if she can shed some light on how he got the phone. Patty begins to panic when Chance tells her that they know Adam had to have had an accomplice and begins to get defensive leading Chance to believe that she is trying to hide something. Later, Patty manages to settle herself and tells Chance to ask whatever questions he may have but Patty starts to notice that it is getting late. Kevin advises Amber to call Daniel and smooth things over with him before she leaves town. As Amber is leaving Daniel a message, Kevin notices a kid stealing a tip off a table and stops him and Amber realizes the kid is Little D. Meanwhile, Sarah decides to change her plans and sends Daisy to intercept Daniel and tells Daisy that she will handle Phyllis herself. Later, Amber is thrilled to see Little D, who is now going by Eric and Eric is reacts to hearing that Amber was on her way to California to find him and that she remembered it is Eric’s birthday. As Phyllis tries to talk to “Lauren” about Michael, Sarah vents that she isn’t living up to Michael’s standards. Phyllis becomes concerned when Sarah says that Michael is going to regret it if he doesn’t stop being so judgmental. Meanwhile, Daisy shows up at Daniel’s in tears and begs him to hear her out. While Daniel’s back is turn, Daisy slips a crushed up pill into his drink. Later, Jana and Lauren voice Ryder’s worst fears to him that Daisy and Sarah are going to set him up to take the fall for Michael and Phyllis’s murders and they beg him to stop it before it is too late. Moments later, Jana falls to the ground in agony from her headaches and Lauren pleads with him to help her. Eric explains to Amber what happened with Tawny and Amber promises that from now on she is going to take care of him. Meanwhile, Daisy calls Sarah once Daniel starts to feel the effects of the drugs to tell her they are in the clear. Phyllis begins to wonder what is going on with “Lauren” when she starts making strange, even threatening remarks towards her and Michael. Patty tries to cover her panic when she learns that Chance is going to track down the person who purchase the cell phone for Adam and look at the security footage. Meanwhile, Phyllis starts to lose her cool with Sarah, who looks for an opening to take advantage of Phyllis’s vulnerable state in her wheelchair. Phyllis decides to ask Sarah to leave and calls Michael to tell him about their strange encounter. Later, she calls Daniel to check where he is and the power cuts out. Meanwhile, Amber arrives home and finds Daniel and Daisy in bed together. At the zoo, Ryder finally agrees to let Lauren and Jana go but as he goes to grab his keys he realizes that they are missing.

Meanwhile, Patty calls Michael to meet her at his apartment. Later, Phyllis starts to panic when she hears someone trying to breaking into the tack house.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Sally Reveals Her Plan To Nab Wyatt; Katie Lowers The Boom On Bill

BOLD is back!  On Tuesday, July 21st, the CBS Daytime drama, The Bold and the Beautiful aired its first original episodes in months, and should be congratulated not only for being the first soap back in production, but who also, in short order,  got new episodes on the air starting with today.

And, there was plenty of action in the first show back amid the coronavirus pandemic.  So, here’s the key points of what went down.

Photo: JPI

Sally (Courtney Hope) and Dr. Escobar (Monica Ruiz) wind up tying an unconscious Flo (Katrina Bowden) to a radiator after the doc conked her over the head previously, when Flo found out Sally’s been faking her illness.  Meanwhile, Wyatt (Darin Brooks) comes by Sally’s place, and sees how the place is in complete disarray.  A concerned Wyatt phones Sally who lies that she fell, and is with her doctor getting checked out.

When Wyatt tells Sally he wants to be there for her, she takes that to the extreme.  Dr. Escobar goes on how they will be arrested for kidnapping Flo.  Sally, who is becoming more unglued, says under her breath:“The threat of just losing me isn’t enough.”  Just then, Flo wakes up and is in for a rude awakening when she realizes she is kidnapped and tied up.  Flo thinks Sally has lost it.   Sally tries to reason to her that they never meant for this to happen, but she is going after Wyatt.  Flo warns her she won’t get him like this way  … and then Sally says this is the perfect moment for her to get pregnant due to what the app says on her phone, and she will have Wyatt’s children and a family,   Then, angry and vindictive, Sally tells Flo in no uncertain times: “I refuse to lose to you. I’m going to have Wyatt’s baby.”

Elsewhere at Forrester Creations, Katie (Heather Tom) and Bill (Don Diamont) get into a discussion about the consequences he must face for kissing Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), but he doesn’t know what Katie is about to say.  She says she believes he’s sorry. and she loves him very much, but she doesn’t know if she can forgive him this time.  Bill attempts to reason with Katie, by saying that “Bitch Quinn” (Rena Sofer) weaponized his kiss with Brooke and made them collateral damage.  All he wants is to come home.  However, Katie has other plans and wants them to tell their son, Will, what is going on between them … they’re separated and they may not get back together.  It should be noted that Heather Tom, who just won her record-tying sixth Daytime Emmy, proved again why she is a multi-winner with her performance in these scenes.

And at the beach house, Liam (Scott Clifton) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) talk over the current state of their lives; where he realizes and so does she, that something more has to be in her life than raising a baby and work.  Cue the new doctor in town (Tanner Novlan as “Finn”) later this week!

So, what did you think of B&B’s first new episode back? Comment below..

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.
