Here are today’s updates starting a new week.

Days of Our Lives

Roman has a bomb tied around him with Andre standing behind him with a gun preventing Sami and EJ from removing the bomb. EJ tells Andre that the vendetta is over by orders of Stefano and he asks if he is ready to defy Stefano. Andre doesn’t believe EJ, he wants to know why Stefano would give in to the one thing he has lived for all these years.

Sami says she never said she wouldn’t honor her agreement with Stefano about marrying EJ, but they are not meeting her agreement about her family staying safe.. So she tells Andre to release her father. EJ offers to call Stefano so Andre can talk to him and hear for himself that he has called the vendetta off. When he calls him, Steve won’t let Stefano answer the phone. Andre sets the timer on the bomb when he tells EJ he will give him 5 more minutes. Sami tries stopping it but they warn her that it would make the bomb go off instead. She then dials Bo’s number and she tells him she has her Dad but there is a bomb tied to him and they are running out of time. She wants him to tell her what to do.

Steve is at the hospital holding a gun on Stefano. He tells him that he is going to pay, when Stefano asks him what has happened. He says that they dug up the grave, Stefano asks why would they do that and Steve says he should know but Stefano doesn’t. Steve tells him the coffin was dug up and Roman wasn’t in it but it wasn’t empty, that Benjy was in it dead. Stefano goes crazy, he had no idea.

Stefano is really mad, and he tells Steve to go on and shoot and the vendetta would never end if he kills him. There would be no one to call it off and the Brady’s will suffer forever. Stefano is still upset over the news of Benjy, as he and Steve talk about how good Benjy was. Steve says Benjy hated being Stefano’s son, because he had the fear of disappointing his father.

At the cemetery Hope and Bo discuss how to handle Steve and how they were going to break the news about Benjy to Kayla. Bo is waiting for Steve to arrive but the rookie cop that Abe assigned to guard Stefano shows up instead. Hope goes to the hospital only to find Stefano’s room empty but she arrives just in time to see on the TV that Roman has been fine and when they news show goes to the weather broadcast Steve is there holding Stefano hostage for the world to see.

Kate tries to convince Lucas that she had nothing to do with Stefano’s plan. He doesn’t believe her since she has spent years trying to break him and Sami up. He doesn’t see what good she has ever done for him. He sees it as her coming between him and whatever made him happy. She doesn’t see it that way.

Jack wakes Katie and she sees he is getting dressed to go somewhere. She asks him if Carly has a doctor’s appointment that he has to take her to but he says no. He was taking her somewhere.

While Katie gets dressed Jack tries calling Carly but when she doesn’t answer he worries.

When he does, Carly answers and tells him about her being at the doctor’s. Jack sends Katie to buy the house and then heads to the doctor to be with Carly.

Today is the hearing against Craig. He is worried about what Rosanna will do after he gave her something to think about if he goes to prison. Meanwhile Rosanna looks again at the pictures the private detective left her of Paul with Meg and thinks about what Craig told her. Paul walks in wanting to know if she had a call. She lies to him and tells him no, she was just turning her phone off before going to court. Outside the courtroom Craig asks Rosanna if she thought about what he said. She says yes she did come to some realization. He smiles and says she realized that she can’t trust her fiancé? She looks him in the eye and says, she realized that Paul loves her and only her, then walks away into the courtroom leaving him distraught standing there.

On the witness stand Rosanna’s lawyer asked her what did she remember about the case and she says she is confused. Paul stands and tells her to tell them what she remembered. She says she just doesn’t remember now. At home she tells Paul she feels horrible about what happened but Paul turns to her and says then she shouldn’t have lied on the stand.
