Kate Goes on The Warpath on Days of Our Lives

When Will (Chandler Massey) saw Sonny's (Freddie Smith) hand, he immediately demanded to know what happened. Sonny said he didn't want to talk about it. When Will pressed him,  Sonny revealed Nick (Blake Berris) had called him a faggot.

Kate (Lauren Koslow) called Stefano to tell him to leave her alone. It was blatantly clear he was toying with her.

Adrienne (Judi Evans) showed Sonny a gift she'd bought for Will's daughter. Sonny had to explain that Will had signed his rights away. As they were talking, Kate walked in and overheard Adrienne question why Will would give up his rights. I hope to the Soap Gods Kate is able to do what Sami (Alison Sweeney), EJ (James Scott) and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) have yet to accomplish — get revenge on Nick. 

Stefano Returns to Salem Today on Days of Our Lives!

The Phoenix rises again in Salem, U.S.A today on Days of Our Lives. How will Stefano (Joe Mascolo) deal with his daughter Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) continued relationship with Brady (Eric Martsolf) — the son of the DiMeras' sworn enemy, John Black (Drake Hogestyn)?

HOT or NOT: Rafe and Kate on Days of Our Lives?

Rafe (Galen Gering) and Kate (Lauren Koslow) are getting hot and heavy on Days of Our Lives, but I find myself conflicted about them slipping between the sheets. On one hand, I'm happy for Kate. She’s suffered through a bit of a sexual drought in recent months; so it was about time she got some action.

However, did the cougar have to scratch boring, dependable Rafe? Who knows, maybe she can light a fire under Sami's (Alison Sweeney) ex?

Do you find Rafe and Kate Hot or Not on Days of Our Lives?

Wishful Storytelling: Sami's Teen Rapist Alan "Catfishes" Will on Days of Our Lives

With buzz growing about the upcoming versions of All My Children and One Life to Live possibly delving into edgier, ripped-from-the-headlines stories, my brain has been working on overdrive about how the remaining four daytime soaps could also benefit from such a shift in storytelling. Don't get me wrong, I love a good return-from-the-dead as much as the next suds lover, but at some point, when you've seen one — you've seen 738,265 of 'em.

Awhile back on Twitter, I posted how I would love to see Sami's (Alison Sweeney) teen rapist Alan (originally played by Paul Kersey) return to seek his warped brand of revenge on Days of Our Lives. Back in 1995, Lucas' (Bryan Dattilo) pal Alan dated Sami, while secretly pining for her older sister Carrie (Christie Clark). Frustrated by his lack of progress with Carrie, Alan violently raped Sami.

During the rape trial, Sami was branded a liar and Alan was released. It wasn't long before he came after her again — this time with a gun! Sami managed to get the weapon away from Alan—before he could rape her a second time—and shot him in the business!

Distraught, Sami made love with Lucas, conceiving Will. Although no one in Salem knew that fact for quite some time, because Sami passed the baby off as Austin's (Patrick Muldoon). What if Will, devastated after some future bust up with Sonny (Freddie Smith), decides to look for love online? READ MORE

Hope Welcomes Sami and Rafe’s Reunion on Days of Our Lives

Days of Our Lives kicked off its 12,000th episode by having Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) thank viewers for watching.

Nick (Blake Berris), Gabi (Camila Banus) and Will (Chandler Massey) argued about whether Will should be the godfather to his son. Nick continued to be the slime ball he has been for months, in regard to Will being a gay father. He did mange to mask his attitude in concern for the possibility Will being around his son could make the secret get out easier.

Hope (Kristian Alfonso) showed up at Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) house, where Sami and Rafe (Galen Gering) were about to have sex. After the interruption, Rafe left and Hope quickly commented on how happy she was for her niece. READ MORE

Sonny Gives Will The Key to His Heart (and His Crib) on Days of Our Lives

Will (Chandler Massey) woke up to breakfast in bed by Sonny (Freddie Smith). Sonny later gave Will a best man’s gift, which turned out to be the key to his home. After Sonny asked Will to move in, Will said he should have given him the key the night before so they could have celebrated all night.

I hope something, or better yet, some man arrives to shake up Sonny and Will soon. They are cute together, but cute is only sustainable for so long.
