Congrats to Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS) who was selected as the performer of the week! Click here to learn more--->>
On last week’s Days of Our Lives, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) finds out during her wedding to Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) that he was the one who kidnapped her and not EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel). Sami is initially in denial when Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) storms into the chapel to stop the wedding and reveals Lucas as the kidnapper and accuses him of murdering his wife, Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller) since Abby knew Lucas’ secret. When Lucas ultimately confesses, Sami is devastated, shocked, and heartbroken. Sweeney always delivers whenever she stops in to visit Salem and this time was no exception. Fans could feel and see Sami’s heart shatter into pieces through Sweeney’s powerful performance. Later on, Sami runs to EJ to let him know what happened at the chapel only to be stunned to find out that EJ slept with her sister, Belle Brady (Martha Madison). Sami tore into both EJ and Belle for betraying her and Sweeney was entertaining in her scenes as always. Sweeney then had touching scenes with Lindsay Arnold who plays her TV daughter, Allie Horton, when Allie tries to comfort her heartbroken mother. At the end of the week’s episodes, Sami stops by to see EJ to let him know that she won’t be getting back together with him and that this time, she’s choosing to leave town alone. Sweeney had a lot of heavy material and she made it seem effortless. She finds a way to mix a bit of humor into all of the drama and chaos while having chemistry with all of her scene partners, it’s no wonder why fans love her and look forward to her appearances on Days of Our Lives. Bravo, Sweeney!
