Congrats to Sal Stowers (Lani, DAYS) who was selected as the performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
In last week’s Days of Our Lives, Lani Price (Sal Stowers) was haunted by the ghost of her biological father, TR Coates (William Christian). Lani has been riddled with guilt ever since she murdered TR and her mother, Paulina Price (Jackée Harry) took the fall for her. Stowers did a phenomenal job at showing just how much the guilt was eating away at Lani as she saw visions of TR. Seeing TR stirred up feelings of fear as well. Lani was so startled and concerned that she kept seeing him everywhere to the point that she almost didn’t let her brother, Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson) into her apartment as she still believed she was seeing TR instead of Theo. At Paulina and Abe Carver’s (James Reynolds) wedding, Lani couldn’t take it anymore and she confessed to TR’s murder in front of her family and friends. Stowers’ powerful performance moved fans as Lani cried out the truth; she shook in fear and pain, but ultimately let out a brief sigh of relief that the secret was out. Lani didn’t want her mother to go to prison for her. However, both Lani and her husband, Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) fear that Lani will go to prison for the crime and not be able to raise their children together. Paulina gave Lani up at birth to keep her safe from TR and was ready to make another sacrifice for her daughter, but Lani couldn’t stand the thought of lying for the rest of her life while her mother paid for her crime. Stowers hit every beat of this storyline and it pains fans knowing she’ll be departing from the soap soon. Bravo Stowers on yet another captivating performance!
