Days of Our Lives
Lani and Eli sat down to talk through their fears before deciding to have this baby. They then sat down with Julie and Abe to share their big news. After Zoey revealed to Rafe that she would still be fighting him for custody of David, Hope stepped up and offered to testify on his behalf. Will and Sonny started discussing their options when it comes to having a child. Abe talked with Kate about her offering keys to the city to Hope and Steve, thinking that it was her way of absolving herself of guilt. Kayla accepted Justin’s proposal after reading Steve’s note about making the right choice with moving on. Marlena visited Claire, who was ready to come home and make amends.
Gabi was released on bail and made it her mission to prove that Jake was Stefan despite Will and Sonny’s advice to let it go. She snuck into Jake’s apartment to steal his toothbrush to compare his DNA to Stefan’s but was kidnapped by the guys after Jake. Ben learned that Jake had been involved with organized crime and had stolen something from the boss on his way out. His ex-girlfriend, Gwen - who was revealed to be Claire’s friend in Bayview - had stolen the object from him on her way out of town. Now Jake has 24 hours to find her and save Gabi with the help of Ben and Ciara. Maggie was finally released from prison and returned home as Victor got out of the hospital.
Sarah laid into Victor and Marlena got her to open up about using anger to mask her grief. Brady started implementing his plan to destroy Titan but his actions set off alarm bells for John and Ciara. Eric and Nicole discussed getting married as soon as possible. Jack found Steve drowning his sorrows at the pub after Kayla’s engagement. After talking with Kayla and learning about Steve’s note from Jack, Jennifer wanted to tell Kayla the truth about Steve’s feelings but Jack wasn’t sure that was the right move. Kayla discovered a drunken Steve and took him back to Hope’s where he dreamt about reuniting with Kayla. Gwen wondered if Claire was really ready to make amends or was she just talking a good game to get released.
Our Performers of the Week are Days of Our Lives’ Sal Stowers & Lamon Archey!
It did our hearts good to see these get the chance to talk through their feelings and fears about having another child. Their conversation was honest and raw. Eli proved to be the standup man we all thought he was as he told Lani that he would be by her side no matter what she decided. And Lani realizing that she truly wasn’t in this alone. She was strong but they were stronger together. Sal and Lamon are beautiful magic on-screen and we cannot wait to see more!
Our Honorable Mention is Days of Our Lives’ Stephen Nichols!
Stephen Nichols plays a great drunk! Lol. We thoroughly enjoyed his conversation with Matt Ashford as the Johnson brothers were on screen together. As a Steve and Kayla stan, it broke my heart to see the pain Steve was hiding - at least trying to hide - as he realized his reunion with Kayla was just a dream. We are just riding the wave and enjoying all the angst that this storyline is giving!
