Days Of Our Lives

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 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.

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!

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.
