NBC’s Days of our Lives has a lot of storylines planned for its 2016 run as the show is now well into its golden anniversary season.  In this week’s issue (1/4/16) of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the publication has its annual 2016 preview section for all four network daytime dramas, which is a must read for soap fans.

In the case of DAYS, executive producer Ken Corday teased fans of  the sudser on what to expect in all the major storylines including: a New Year’s Eve tragedy, the future of Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Kate Mansi), John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Rafe (Galen Gering), and others.

Corday also revealed a game-changer to happen sometime in 2016 relating:  “A major character is murdered in cold blood. This will be the biggest thing in Salem and the ripple effects will be felt for many, many months.”

So this begs the question:  What character do you will think be killed off as part of this  murder storyline that will begin at some point in 2016?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

    Seriously? they think murder and mayhem is what we want to see? Ugh! I want to hear about all the love stories coming up, some adventure, maybe a big wedding or two! DAYS is WAY past due for this.

      I agree…too much gloom and doom…i havent felt well in recent days and hoping for stuff like you suggested to perk me up…Days used to do well with love and adventure-i dont know what makes them think otherwise…i wouldnt mind a good old fashioned wedding…i just went on youtube and watched a big soap wedding from Another World made back in 1968 and it was beautiful…they used a huge church filled with many extras and had a hall for the wedding party filled with guests and there was music and dancing…no cliched interuptions with a shooting or claiming the groom was already married…the wedding was very realistic and entertaining the way a soap should be…now this was a kinescope taken off a monitor and is black and white with some flaws and not the original color tape but its so good that that doesnt matter…if you or any other poster would like to see it on youtube its Another World July 1-3 1968…and you dont have to be an AW fan to enjoy this wonderful classic…maybe if the four remaining soaps were more like this they could be doing so much better!!!

        Exactly–why more murders? Enough is enough.

        Really, what is with the unhappy theme of this show. Why not bring some comedy, love. I can’t wait to watch the show and all I get is sadness. Check rating on some of the comedy shows. In this age of real life murders we need good time shows to take our minds off the reality of our real world.

        To make you feel better, Eastenders’ post-Christmas episode just saw one of its characters trapped in a car trunk and was crushed to death over at a junkyard.

        Sorry you haven’t been feeling well, Jimh 🙁 … I know what you mean though, because the soaps helped me get through a really hard time in my life, they are more than just fluff, I wish they’d get the credit they deserve for brightening peoples’ lives and giving them something to look forward to every day. Not everyone has a perfect life. They are a lifeline for shut-ins, etc. There needs to be a balance between “gloom and doom” and “love and happiness”. The characters go through some really hard things, but at the end of the arc, there needs to be a happy payoff for the fans. That’s what keeps us watching. The beautiful, lavish weddings on DAYS .. that’s what I remember. And, of course, the months and MONTHS of beautiful, romantic angst leading up to those weddings. I will have to check out that wedding from AW, thanks for alerting me to it! 🙂

        December 28, 2015 at 3:21 am

        I agree. I like murder mysteries on Days. For awhile there, I thought a murder on New Year’s Eve on Days of Our Lives was becoming a yearly tradition.
        So far, Days Of Our Lives has not been renewed past September 2016. I assume they will be filming for August 2016 in 2 more months, since they are filming 5 1/2 months to 6 months ahead of schedule.
        So go ahead and let Days of Our Lives kill off anyone they want to, to bring the television viewers back into it, if Days is going to be cancelled.
        I wish Days of Our Lives was available on NBC On Demand, so I can watch the days episode when I can. My internet is at a slower speed to watch it online. But I just found that Days Of Our Lives is on the POP channel at 8:00pm.

      It all sounds great! I have been watching Days for 48 years and love every minute of it. I wonder if it will be Stephano because he is looking tired, or Victor because Caroline is seeing visions of him grabbing his chest. I do hope that it’s not Jennifer th as t gets into the accident. Great job Days writers!

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:08 pm

        No it isn’t Jennifer that will be killed, it will be Daniel. From what I have read both cars are involved in the accident and Daniel doesn’t make it.

    • robert monches

      December 31, 2015 at 12:29 pm

      Perhaps Batty Ben will escape from the nuthouse and murder Chad after finding out that the baby is Chad’s and not his. I also think that Stefano’s days are numbered and crazy Andre will take over as Salem’s new villain. Victor may also die soon, perhaps from his heart attack. Caroline will soon follow him. I’m also thinking that Ava will murder either Steve or Kayla.

      • robert monches

        December 31, 2015 at 12:33 pm

        We all must remember that Joseph Mascolo (Stefano) is 85 years old, and John Aniston (Victor) is 83, and Peggy McCay (Caroline) is 87, so they can’t last forever.

  2. nancy dillingham

    December 26, 2015 at 9:26 am

    Kill off Stephano!
    Patch and Kayla–take to the moon and back!
    Chad and Abby–shooting star-crossed lovers–bring togehter in a heart-wrenching climax–great actors with great chemistry.
    Rafe and Hope–there’s hope for a great and tender love story–Galen does it all with those melting brown eyes–mmmm.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      December 26, 2015 at 10:04 am

      Thats who i said ‘Stephano’ when the subject came up before

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:10 pm

        I believe Stephano also and Andre will kill him.

    • j9

      December 26, 2015 at 11:02 am

      I would vote Stefano, too. He has been dead and ‘risen’ like 11 times, maybe more. So if he was murdered, how would we know he is REALLY dead again? LOL!

      • Rusty

        December 26, 2015 at 2:10 pm

        I think it will be Victor. He has lots of skeletons in the many closets.

      • Nina

        December 27, 2015 at 7:40 pm

        I always dread when they bring Stefano back. Kill him off for good. And how many times is Chad going to lose his memory? Enough already.

    • Phil

      December 26, 2015 at 1:13 pm

      I did hear or rather read somewhere I think that Joe Mascalo was looking to retire.

      • Blake

        December 26, 2015 at 8:43 pm

        I don’t blame him, it sounds like he’s not in the best of health. But it’s a strange world knowing that Bo and Stefano will never be on Days again.

      • Phil

        December 27, 2015 at 9:37 am

        I know I am in the minority and I am sure to be bashed, but I never was a fan of Peter Reckell, I think he was a horrible actor. I do however think Bo should have lived. Of Reckell didn’t want to stay (Which like it or not was the case.) They should have recast the role. Ricky Paull Goldin (ex-Gus, GL) would have been a good recast. Heck bring back Robert Kelker Kelly even!

      • SZima

        December 27, 2015 at 3:50 pm

        John Aniston/Victor is also wanting to retire, or so I’ve heard. Either Stefano or Victor getting killed would rock a lot of lives.

      • James McDonald

        December 28, 2015 at 3:27 am

        I agree with Phil. I wouldn’t mind if they brought back Robert Kelker Kelly as “Bo” or another character. He has another career now as a pilot or teaching in pilot school, something like that, but he made a special appearance on General Hospital as a villain during their anniversary and he was outstanding. He has found the fountain of youth too. He was in wonderful shape and looked young.

    • James R. Poissant

      December 27, 2015 at 8:21 am

      The first name that came to my mind was Stefano. This could be tough since he is the Phoenix and can rise from the ashes which we have seen many times before but I am also keeping in mind that Ken Corday did say a little while back that he really doesn’t want to do anymore of these “back-from-the-dead” storylines so even if it is Stefano, we’re not going to believe he is actually dead. Who could get us to feel shock for months after the murder? I’m willing to say Roman but I could be way off base.

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:13 pm

        Or it could be John Black because his life has been threatened.

  3. fginaspy

    December 26, 2015 at 9:53 am

    It will be Daniel. I love the idea of killing Stephano, but know one would care.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      December 26, 2015 at 10:35 am

      I dont think he will be the murdered victim…i believe Danials death will be the tragedy on New Years Eve and he will be killed by a drunk driving Erik!!

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 7:21 am

        That’s the most logical premise, Jimmy. I think everyone is not too keen on Stefano, so his loss wouldn’t be such a big deal to most; except, of course, that I would miss Joseph. He’s been such an outstanding figure for so long, he has become a permanent fixture, lol. Would his murder be shocking to anyone? Daniel is the probable answer, I guess.

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:14 pm

        Jennifer is the one driving the car that crashes.

    • deb

      December 26, 2015 at 10:49 am

      Daniel dies from the car crash, not cold blood

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 7:26 am

        That’s right, deb. I wasn’t thinking. If Daniel is to die from a crash, then, you’re right. It is definitely not murder. So, it could still be Stefano….not shocking, though. Roman? John? Caroline? Major character could actually be anyone that’s been on the show a few years. Happy New Year.

    • No1_ILoveLucyFan

      December 26, 2015 at 11:15 am

      Nope – Daniel dies on NYE – he’s not the murder victim.

      • rosetta

        December 27, 2015 at 3:41 am

        I just saw the commercial for the preview of Days of our lives not even 2 minutes ago it shows the doctor tell Abby that Ben Can’t Be The Father of her baby and then it says a new year tragedy it shows jen driving and she yells no and Trys to avoid getting hit but it shows them rushing Jennifer through the Hospital Doors On a Gerny Jennifer was alone in her car so who is driving the other car Daniel? & poor Maggie If it is Daniel he is her son and Jennifer is her niece. Because it says that Maggie is dealing with 2 Major things at once so you have Jennifer that for sure is in that car wreck and it shows Abby with her baby I can’t tell if something is wrong with him but the doctor tells her that Ben Can’t Be The Father so that is 2 people plus whoever else is driving the other car and it shows a new year party underway and I think it’s Ava Vitali making a entrance. Last time she was on here she was responsible for the death of Shawn Brady , Kayla S Dad and she just forgave her Crazy Self Lord Only Knows What she has planned for them all this time around because she said the other day that she Will Not Fail This Time! !

    • Blake

      December 26, 2015 at 8:46 pm

      Daniel won’t be in a cold blood but in a car crash. Seems it will be Stefano killed.

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:17 pm

        Eric is in the car with Jennifer. I read somewhere that she is driving because Eric is drunk.

      • Adam

        Oh okay thanks Charlotte.

      • Yolie

        January 2, 2016 at 12:26 pm

        There are 3 cars involved.
        Jennifer -alone
        Eric – alone
        Daniel & Brady , who are together in the car.

    Make that no one will care.
    I love Steve and Kayla. Maggie keeps Victor in line. Any other couple I have no interest in.

    • Louise

      December 27, 2015 at 12:14 am

      Victor much more fun to watch when he has a edge to him…don’t get me wrong I love Maggie, but apparently one of Victor’s misdeeds of the past is going to come back to haunt him according to spoiler’s/rumors and I’m going to thoroughly enjoy watching it all unfold

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 4:29 pm

        Oh, Louise, I love Victor. I’ll take him any way I can. Maggie is not in the running for me.

    December 26, 2015 at 10:08 am

    Rafe and Hope = DOA (dead on arrival!) That’s what happens when, aside from being forced and contrived, the 32 legacy of your show’s signature, iconic supercouple is infringed upon by a dull interloper whose feelings are completely UNreciprocated by the surviving member of aforementioned supercouple. #Nope2Rope

    Both KA and GG deserve better!

    • CeeCee

      December 26, 2015 at 4:45 pm

      Thank you very much, MP. I simply detest the idea of a Hope and Rafe liaison. Hope has not one ounce of spice in her body. Not now, anyway….she left it somewhere along the way between the 80’s and the present….my grandmother’s words, which I consider sacrosanct. As Nancy said, Rafe is just too yummy to be wasted on Hope.

      • Ces

        December 26, 2015 at 7:44 pm

        Lol!! I read about Hope not having any spice; giggled and looked up to see the author …. Why, it’s you CeeCee!!! Cracking me up but yeah, twiggy is no longer captivating. Sorry, i had to go there but Hope & Rafe – no way! Galen is too hot for her. Kinda liked him with Kate

      • Blake

        December 26, 2015 at 8:48 pm

        You are right about Hope not having spice. I don’t think she has since the Princess Gina storyline.

      • Louise

        December 27, 2015 at 12:07 am

        I love it. I lost all my interest in Hope during the stupidity of the princess Gina story and have never been able to enjoy her completely since. IMO the story about Bo dying was only good because of such a wonderful performance by Peter Reckell. Watching Hope dissolve into a crazy irritation mess isn’t entertaining. Bo gave her something to do in what he said to her after he died…but this revenge thing ain’t it…get it together girl and figure out what he really meant

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 11:24 am

        Lol and ohhh, yeah!! Kate can turn on a piece of wood with one sultry look……oops, that’s a mere coincidence…HaHa. Rafe and Kate could sure steam up the screen! He is one hot pepperone. Hope more like flat-bread. She is neither here nor there for me. Too ordinary, as it were. I don’t get her at all. She was eager enough to marry pie-face without regrets…now, she’s all gung-ho on revenge, which suddenly surfaced because of her great love for Bo? Louise is right…”get it together” and analyze Bo’s words. Without Peter, Hope is nothing, at this point.

    • Andi

      December 26, 2015 at 7:18 pm

      Hope is old enough to be Rafes mother! I think they need to put him with Abe’s daughter or bring back Carrie for him. That would really drive Sammy mad.

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 11:28 am

        Watch out, Andi or you’ll be called ageist by a certain busy-body. LOL. I agree with you. But, sometimes it depends of whom we are speaking. Some of us loved Rafe with Kate. and, yes, I liked Carrie with him, as well.

      • Charlotte

        December 29, 2015 at 4:29 pm

        IT really doesn’t matter that Hope is old enough to be Rafes’ mother. It is where is in his heart and right now that is Hope. And besides Bo knew that Rafe loved her that is why he ask Rafe to take care of her, and being the person that he is he is going to do just that…. On with Rafe and Hope.

    • Jaime

      December 27, 2015 at 8:43 am

      I do think Rafe is being unduly propped. That he is on almost every single day and the forcing of Hope prior to even the death of Bo is just too much and far too unnatural.

      Sorry guys but Rafe is cute but a total soap stereotype.

      Give me more of Steve Johnson and his lady love. Now that is chemistry.

  6. Jimh(leave it to beaver)

    December 26, 2015 at 10:30 am

    I still think its Stephano but it could also be Victor, Caroline, Doug…just about anybody and it could be a shocker…Days better be careful who they kill off next-alienating fans like Days had done in 1980 could hurt the show and you don’t have that many soap viewers like you had back then to help you recover…so far the teens acting is just so-so and not good enough to carry this show into the future if the show even has one…i still like Days and hope it sticks around…just know it could do much better than just killing off characters to gain viewers attention-this could backfire and it has before!!!

  7. James McDonald

    December 26, 2015 at 10:59 am

    Stefano has been “killed” many times on Days Of Our Lives, but he always returns alive. Remember, Stefano is “The Phoenix”. Not even fire can kill him forever. The Phoenix rises again.
    I know that Joseph Mascolo is getting closer to 90, so if he feels it is time for retirement then okay. But if he wants to stay on Days Of Our Lives until he naturally passes away, I would accept that too.
    They wouldn’t dare kill Caroline Brady again, although Peggy McCay is 85 now.
    Maybe it is “Daniel” they will kill off since he is leaving the show. “Melanie” is returning after all.

    • Cheryl

      December 26, 2015 at 1:35 pm

      So has Andre/ Tony!! I hope its Andre myself!!! I’d love to see Abby and Chad together and Kayla and Steve together also.

    • Blake

      December 26, 2015 at 8:50 pm

      Seems Daniel will be dying on the New Year’s Eve next week. The cold blood murder is Stefano.

        I don’t think Eve is leaving until February.

    • Ces

      December 26, 2015 at 7:45 pm

      Good riddance Kassie; she never belonged on this show and certainly not as Eve.

      • Phil

        December 27, 2015 at 9:28 am

        Are we watching the same show? Kassim has nailed it on DAYS and in my opinion could act circles around Charlotte Ross! Her being fires is the BIGGEST mistake DAYS has made along with killing Will Horton!

      • CeeCee

        December 27, 2015 at 4:46 pm

        I agree about Kassie, Ces. Although she is one of my faves, as every actor/character on OLTL, I did not feel a connection to Eve on Days. I don’t think she felt a connection to the soap, herself. And, of course, as good of a thespian she may be, she does not have that come-hither-look or sexiness about her.

    • Scott (ATWT Fan)

      December 27, 2015 at 6:46 am

      Kassie DePaiva already confirmed she’s not being killed off the soap, leaving the door open for her potential return.

      • Ces

        December 27, 2015 at 12:30 pm

        Phil, she’s a bit old looking for the part for starters. She isnt sexy or Eve like, she’s very twangy and I just dont care for her on this show. She fit in with the Buchanans over on OLTL not with this group.

      • Ces

        December 27, 2015 at 7:27 pm

        I dont see any reason why Days would bring her back.

        CeeCee, she was fine on OLTL but she just didnt fit in at Days; glad you agree with me!

  9. Denise

    December 26, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    I think that Victor will be murdered.

    • Andi

      December 26, 2015 at 7:30 pm

      Better not be Victor, Maggie, or Caroline. Murder André I never did like him or Tony. Steve and Kayla can go. Roman can go you never see him except when he’s arresting a family member. I would bet it’s maybe Phillip. No one likes this new guy anyway. Someone should shoot the casting director after the awful job they have done since Will, Clyde, Jordan and Ben. I had to fast forward past all of them so much that I was missing most of the show.

      • Susan

        December 29, 2015 at 12:31 pm

        I disagree. I want Andre to stay around because he is so good at what he does.Corday did says that a major character, which Philip is not, will be murdered. By the way, you cannot say that no one likes the new Philip. You can only speak for yourself. It is not the casting director’s fault that the writers messed up the storylines involving Will, Clyde, Jordan and Ben. As to who is going to be murdered my guesses are John Black, Belle or Stefano.

  10. carol

    December 26, 2015 at 12:30 pm

    Maybe it will be Caroline,or perhaps she will see who the murder is,I wouldn’t mind it being Jennifer,even Marlana or John there story does nothing for me at all frankly I find if to be pretty dull and boring.. I like Eve. I dont think they would kill Doug or Julie would they ? Then again I never did think that Will would be killed off either,Oh goodness who is the murderer going to be this time.?

    • Patrick

      December 26, 2015 at 2:16 pm

      it was simply a matter of time…. for “Doug” and Julie to bequeath…. JJ and Abs… that it is their wish that both of them continue to carry on the Horton Tradition

      seeing this thread.. I thought…. is Doug going to die
      then for whatever reason… Doug not mentioning to Jennifer that she continue the christmas tradition

      could it be Jennifer who is brutally murdered?

      her character… IS most certainly a “Major” one at that

      so … my guess is it could be Jenn

      I’m hoping they bring back grandma Laura Horton…

    • Andi

      December 26, 2015 at 7:32 pm

      It’s going to be an old enemy of Victor and they will kill Phillip.

      • mary

        December 29, 2015 at 12:36 pm

        Apparently Victor framed his own brother for a crime. And now his son’s brother is coming to Salem. So my guess is that it will be Victor who will be murdered by the this vengeful nephew. Or this vengeful nephew will kill Maggie or Brady.

    I heard Daniel dies. I love him on the show. If he wants to leave, just replace him please.

  12. Faye

    December 26, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    I’m gona say,Caroline will be murdered in cold blood,because of the serum,she’s been having visions of Victor dying,an he moved her in his house to protect her,just the little signspointing to this an I beleive Philip will somehow be involved. Just my thoughts,but this would post certainly rock Salem.

    • Jimh(leave it to beaver)

      December 26, 2015 at 2:27 pm

      A jealous Maggie murders Caroline after finding her in bed with Victor who died from a heartattack while making out with Caroline…then she serves Carolines remains in Carolines famous clam chowder down at the Brady Pub which causes everyone to have visions after eating the chowder…kidding…lol

    • Blake

      December 26, 2015 at 8:56 pm

      No it looks like it’s Stefano. That’s why they brought Andre back for good, Chad and Andre are the remaining DiMeras.

    • Louise

      December 26, 2015 at 11:55 pm

      Andre’s just getting started.Thaao has a long term contract I honestly look forward to seeing much more of Andre What has made himmake him the way he is and can anything or anyone changed him? Make him more redeemable once again. There’s a rumor out there that LeaAnn Hundley might have a small part That would be awesome.I can handle Stefano dying but not because he’s murdered..they tried that already in 2011. People are against Andre because he’s interfering with their precious Chabby. In case you’re not aware of it ,that’s when Thaao’s at his best. Look back over his career on days. Except for the begin Thaao is days number one way torture the fans man next to Stefano

  16. DJ

    December 26, 2015 at 1:04 pm

    I’m thinking Victor. It will look like a heart attack, but they will find out that some one gave him something to induce a heart attack….thus making Caroline visions come true.
    (she may solve the murder thru visions as well, after several visions lead up to the culprit that gave Victor the drug) It will be Philip, he’ll give Victor the drug that Vic had Caroline take only Vic will have a adverse reaction & die.

    • Blake

      December 26, 2015 at 8:57 pm

      But in cold blood means they’ll be killed so that leaves Victor out. It seems it will be Stefano.

      • Susan

        December 29, 2015 at 12:50 pm

        In the spoilers for DAYS it’s revealed that Victor framed his own brother who was sent to prison. Now the brother’s son Deimos is coming to Salem looking for revenge. That could mean killing Victor.

      • Adam

        December 29, 2015 at 1:30 pm

        Oh that’s true. And yesterday Stefano talked about being tired, I wouldn’t be surprised if both Stefano and Victor were killed off the way they have been doing things. Guess it would free up big money for budget.

    I’m so tired of doom and gloom on DOL . Not my idea of what DOL used to be . No fun, romance, mystery. I” done watching after 50 years. There is enough depressing things on the news …I don’t need to be sad and depressed watching a soap. Mr Corday I don’t think you have made good decision on the way for Days to go and if you check the ratings are now up either. Lots of people not happy with all the death and destruction. People leave recast…it happens all the time. You grow the kids up with recast the others can be done also or sent away.

    Perhaps the show needs a name change….”Deaths of Our Lives”. Why Corday & Co think this constant killing off of characters will draw an audience is beyond me.

    The sad part is that unlike “Edge of Night” ,which featured murder & other crimes as a staple, Days doesn’t even do it that well. Most stories fall flat.

    most dissapointing recasts!

    1. John Paul Lavoisier – I knew from the get go…. he is just not working out or doing… “anything” that feels … “like Phillip” and as the son of… Victor and Kate

    2. Vivian Jovanni – Ciara Alice Brady… try as I might… this is going nowhere too fast. even letting go of the uber wonderful Lauren Boles… i’m going to miss little Miss Marvel

    • Phil

      Agreed! 5 murders in 2 or 3 months is ridiculous. Plus if I have to see that ridiculous outdoor wake/cemetery set one more time….. Salem is suppose to be in the Midwest. When it’s 20 degrees outside in the winter, us mid-westerners go inside. Wakes and funeral services are done indoors. We don’t sit out in a green garden in the middle of winter with a coat.

      • Susan

        December 29, 2015 at 1:11 pm

        I think Corday is cleaning house. DOOL has not been renewed past September 2016. NBC has not said if they are going to cancel the show or not. All of these murders has been in an effort to bring more views to DOOL to convince NBC to renew. That means bringing in a new younger fan base. And the only way to do that is to make DAYS exciting and fun to watch.

  31. clh

    December 26, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    I have watched this show for almost a year now and I have to say it is the most depressing and boring soap I have ever watched. The majority of the characters are soooo boring. Nothing watchable about Hope, Jennifer, Abigail, JJ, etc. And to make watching Hope even more boring, they add two teens that can’t act their way out of a paper bag and add nothing to the show, as soon as a scene starts at hopes house I fast forward.

    I’ve been trying to hang in there, but it doesn’t sound like 2016 will be any different.

  32. Gloria

    December 26, 2015 at 3:52 pm

    More than likely, the murder victim is going to be Stefano DiMera. As for whom the murderer is: inintially, I immediately thought to myself, it’s Andre. But…… It could very well be Sami too. Even Chad for that matter. Perhaps that brainwashing gig backfires???? Hmmmm…
    At any rate, though it saddens me to be losing such a prolific actor as Joe Mascolo, I fully understand that [eventually] all great things must come to an end. Joe is one of Days’ most endeared, and feared actors in his role of Stefano. Many loved to hate the character which Joe has played with great aplomb!
    I wish him a great retirement and the best of health. He will forever remain an icon of Days and be well remembered for years to come! God Bless you, Joe!! The Phoenix will rise eternally!! ❤️

    • Patrick

      December 27, 2015 at 9:27 pm


      beautiful write-up on the forever leading act… Salem has ever REELed

      perhaps in a fit of rage… STefano comes to his senses… and murders Andre… for what he’s done to one of his own….

      Stefano… knowing his own timeliness is at an end…. rectifies what’s left of his Dynasty


      when Thaao Penghliss “thread” the DiMera have always been beset with tragedy

      perhaps it’s Stefano who has that heart attack… but, not before bring Chad to… and they bond that one last time… and Stefano tells Chad… EJ is still alive

      sigh! for 50 years plus… Serials have needed that adversarial… the Phoenix…
      Had it not been for the DiMera… Salem would no longer exist

      point of interest: Joseph Mascolo… debuted on DAYS ; 1982 ; 33 years ago

      I’m going to gavel ; for the King Pin chess magnate ;

      “…I wish him a great retirement and the best of health “

    Here we go again. Don’t these writers know we want some peace and quiet. First, they make all the kids teenagers who can’t act (they are getting better or we are getting use to them) then they bring Bo back and in a minute he is dead. I thought he was in the Merchant Marines don’t that call for some kind of Military Funeral? Phillip what a joke he was a Marine and boy o boy does he look like a scuz bum now., I am not finding fault with the Marine Corp I have been married to one for 48 years. When he was married to Belle he had lost a leg and that was written in, in the story line. And, PLEASE, PLEASE don’t have Claire sing any more.

    • Patrick

      December 26, 2015 at 9:10 pm


      I certainly didn’t give notice of any significance or rewind in Claire

      I was peeved that… just because…. Kassie DePaiva was fired! that they relegate Eve to floundering and gushing all about Claire


      I’m loving what little we do see of Eve… with Justin! these two are the main event! till her exit

      DAYS ! Ken Corday! god how I wish … TPTB truly considered FAN voice

      DAYS has been on a clean up slate… since; August 17, 2015

      currently this is near 4 months in to the nuSHOWS

      the one glaring whole… for me… which is constant… is the firing of Kassie DePaiva

      outside of that… I can REEL with this

      Paul must have a story to tell !?!? seriously?

      so…. now… all of a sudden… Belle Black is the resident Legalese
      LOL…. much to my chagrin… hit me upside the head… this is NOT OUR Aiden!

      I can wait to see just what the writers have in store for Brandon Beemer’ nuSHAWN Douglas

      woah! fire all the guns…. this trio of newbies are taking over

      ie: Hope has moved on with lightning speed… her heart hasn’t been weakened in the least… over two of the greatest loves of her life…. Bo and Aiden

      justifying at the audience… that Hope exacting revenge is good enough for letting the character move on that fast to Galen Gerring’ Rafe

      this newbie in Ciara is killing fast… any and all interest in the pairing of Rafe and Hope… Lauren Boles was a magnet… she elevated this possible pairing

    Someone needs to replace Ken Corday, ge is driving this show into the ground. Murder and ppl dying do not equal ratings. What is it with soaps and sensationalism?? Why can’t people just leave town anymore?? The past 3 months on DAYS have been the most depressing EVER. I hope a regime comes in a resurrects Will Horton. MARK MY WORDS, like Frankenstein from AW, and Maureen from GL, DAYS WILL regret doing that one day very soon. Ken also needs to step up and own that he killed the gay storyline due to bigotry and ppl complaining, and he caved like the coward he is. It’s fun to feature gays when you are receiving emmy and accolades, but the minute u feel fire, he dumped them, and Will in the WORST way. Will and Sonny should’ve left together to repair their marriage and been recast down the line. The Bo fiasco is even worse. They simply should’ve reached out to RKK to reprise that role. DAYS is a joke and will be the next canceled soap.

      CLEARLY; Ken Corday is not doing his job

      he does not recognize the talent pool he did have?

      OK… after the new year… i will no longer post of; Kassie DePaiva – Daniel Cosgrove – James Read

      three amazing talent… compare vs. the newbie recasts and brought back from the dead characters…

      it’s a glaring in your face mishap

      these three magnified… stirred… whetted… capitalized on their worth… carried this show… and shared their presence

      I’m going to miss the intelligent fun enigmatic stirring caught my imagination tune IN

      I’m certain… KEN CORDAY… “knows” what he’s done to… the ruination of integral characters… to fill his purse strings… and vilify his own family history

      he knows

    • kiki

      December 28, 2015 at 4:58 am

      The only way to salvage this 50 year brand is for Sony to buy out Ken Corday. NBC has been cool at best promoting the show, and they are a very gay friendly company that will not want to be associated with a blatantly homophobic show. (Yes, there was lots of death, but Will’s was unnecessary, cruel, shot with the assumption the audience wanted to see him suffer, Sonny sat in the second row, Will was weak and didn’t fight back, Sonny abandoned Arianna…the homophobic beats went on and on…)

      Days could have easily survived cancelation by marketing itself to a streaming service, but they not only disrespected and alienated the gay and ally fans but also other passionate online fanbases like Haiden and Ericole. They committed suicide with their hatred. There’s no saving this show.

      Ken Corday is an ignorant, hateful bully who cares nothing abou tthe fans of the show. He has contempt for them.

    • Kaylie15

      December 28, 2015 at 9:22 am

      Honestly, the writing for the end of Will was so blatantly homophobic, I think Dylan Patton is too good for the role, let alone Guy Wilson or Chandler Massey. Why would any actor join this show to play any character, when you see how a new writing regime can turn on you and your fans with maximum hatred and malice. Ken Corday is the hateful bully in chief, and yes, the only way to save this show is if Sony buys him out.

      Cordy, Higley and Griffith need to be gone before I would ever trust this show again to portray a gay family. These are people who had their gay legacy character choked to death on the anniversary of Mathew Shepherd’s death, had his corpse desecrated, showed the death over and over again, then had Will’s husband abandon their daughter and stand on his grave while setting up a future date with his ex. They are either stupid or they planned all that disrespect.

      In fact, all three of those hateful bully would have to be gone before I would ever trust this show to write any character that I cared about.

      One thing I am certain of, Days will not be getting a GLAAD award this year.

      • Richard

      Get rid of John and Phillip. They are so boring! This memory loss thing with Chad is getting very old and boring! Put Chad and Abbie together! They always need a little action or murder to keep things interesting but keep it real. Remember the audience is not a bunch of morons. Maybe they will kill off Marlena. She has been on the show a long time. The new Ciarra is terrible, as well as most of the teenagers.

    I was watching when this show had Alice Horton murdered. Of course eventually they all turned up alive but since that day I realized there are no sacred characters on this show, so whatever character they murder will not shock me. But what they might do is murder my interest. Death is a part of life so I don’t expect a soap not to show death, but like any plot point, if it is overused the effectiveness of device wears thin. Since there has been so many deaths of late, the shock value has been exhausted– it is like cooking– a little spice is good, too much and you can’t taste anything except the burning, which is not pleasant. So unless they start balancing these darker stories with lightness, it might become too unpleasant to watch–

We watch for a little love and romance, not bad news all the time. We haves tucked with you for 50 years now but with all the bad stuff I can find that on any tv show.

    I’d really liked day to give it a rest with the Chad & Abby story. I’m sick of it personally. For one Kate Mansi has never really impressed me as an actress. I know I’m in the minority here, but all opinions are welcome here Right???? While I’d like some stories that are a little more upbeat. I’m intrigued by the murder idea Maybe Nicole goes after Eric for his part in Daniels death….or someone anyway. I’d like to see a whole lot more romance for the vets being played out on-screen…if other soap can “DO IT” well with the supercouples of the past sure days can do as well. I vote for less sensationalize in their stories more mysteries ,adventure, romance…..make the younger audience wait for their stories ….before the payoff. We often waited for years

      kate Mansi has been on DOOL since; 2011

      she has been hit and miss… every since the time she premiered

      save, for: when , at the hospital; she found out; that Chad has amnesia

      Kate Mansi, since that time, has not let up

      prior to this ; I would just agonize over how her acting just flip flopped … is this the Horton Heroine ? is she on the horizon for burgeoning leading lady status… is she able to dethrone, mom Jennifer… and kick her to the curb

      I, still, at times, think her acting chops are skewered… her focus is lost in all the responsibility of such a herculeon task.

      I do think kate Mansi has surfaced and leads with her character

      she’s giving a tour de force act… if in fact it’s rumored that she’s leaving the show

      she has stepped up to the plate and REALized Abs journey

      as for Ari Zucker’ Nicole : what’s the point? Daniel is dead… she has no family , no relatable ties… give her and MR salary back; to Kassie DePaiva and Paul Telfer

    i think the murder is going to be both John and Marlena. Neither has had a decent story for a very long time. in fact, the show is just spending it’s wheels. ive been a follower since 1965 and it’s time fot the show to pack up and retire.

      That’s ridiculous. This show would never have Sonny visit Arianna. We’re supposed to forget there were ever two loving gay fathers on this show. We were supposed to cheer when Will, for his minor sins, was choked to death. Then, Sonny abandoned their daughter in her time of need after losing her father and handed her off to a mother who had only seen her for prison visits.

      The show hates gays and particularly hates gay fatherhood. They begrudgingly mentioned Will and Sonny at Christmas, but it was no accident that Arianna was not included with their ornaments. No more gay fatherhood on Days, and the bigot writers assume that’s what their viewers want.

    This Death row show needs writing change, fast and furious..Please PTB, bring Ron Carlivati..He is a great head writer..Yes, I know after a few months he gets stagnated and his storylines drags on forever and they become cartoonish, but his writing offers: twist and turns, romance, adventure, lots of comedy relief and lots of tongue in cheek humor..He made OLTL mostly great to watch during his Emmy winning tenure..At GH, his writing was very good early on but somehow, after all the Prospect Park BS, it became muddy and messy and it became a marathon, hence his sudden firing..We need fast and furious storylines in the 21st century meshing with old school ideals to continue the survival of the genre…RC can come up with refreshing ideas, he just needs a shot speeding up the storylines, Ken Corday will be the EP to do that!! DOOL needs him!!

I’m about ready to stop watching since the new writer seems to think that’s what we want. Go back to the romantic side that brought the viewers to Days in the beginning. Maybe we need to get the old writers back.

    Let’s all get invested in new characters, because the show is so sensitive to its viewers feelings.

    This show has become a gruesome, hateful sexist, homophobic bloodbath.

    Will’s death was the absolute worst, and it led to no significant story and clearly was a wipe of the gay, but none of the deaths have done anything but advance the favorites of the bully writers. I used to love the show, now I hate it and hope it is canceled.

    Who in the world would get invested in any o the new characters or the new love stories? They’ve stabbed or will stab Wilson, Ericole, Dicole, Haiden and Shelle fans in the back. They’ve betrayed a long list of fine performers including Guy Wilson, Daniel Cosgrove, Eric Vaughn and Kassie DePavia. They have lost the trust of huge numbers of viewers and they will never get them back.

    I never watched this show because I wanted to be miserable and depressed. I wanted to see drama, angst but above all love and characters I cared about overcoming their troubles. The writers are cruel, hateful, petty and smug, and they don’t care about the viewers only their own cheap and nasty stunts and favorite actors.

  75. K. K.

    December 28, 2015 at 4:45 am

    I stopped watching this horrible, anti-gay show when they had their beautiful gay legacy character, who was a good father and just a young man who made mistakes, choked and his corpse desecrated on the anniversary of Matthew Shepherd’s death. If that doesn’t convince you the show is homophobic, and Will’s death was a gay wipe, the fact that they didn’t apologize should for the timing.

    I’m glad I stopped watching. The tone is awful. The writers are hateful and cruel and have no caring of any fans, especially the gay ones. Will’s death served no purpose and he was barely mourned and his child doesn’t appear to miss him. Sonny abandoned his daughter and stood on his husband’s grave making eyes at his ex boyfriend. The whole thing was dripping with contempt.

    But they don’t respect anyone or anything. It’s pure scorched Earth. If you don’t like the writers special pets, you’re not just not welcome, they want to hurt you. The show is doomed. Everyone should just stop watching, as so many have.

  76. Loomis

    December 28, 2015 at 5:37 am

    The show cannot be trusted. Only a complete fool would invest in any of the pairings or actors with such hateful and cruel hacks in charge. I loved Will and wanted him to be happy with Sonny but bigotry and hatred and cruelty won the day. There is no joy, no love. Only hatred for the wrong kind of viewers they decided to drive away. I supported and boosted this show, now I want it canceled.

  77. Chris

    December 28, 2015 at 9:34 am

    So original for DOOL to have another death, this seems to be the only story line the writers can write these days. Before long everyone in town will be dead. I am still surprised they didn’t kill Sonny off after they killed Will. What happened to love and romance on Days? I think Ken Corday and the writers are over doing it on DEATH! They crossed the line killing Will, they upset older fans killing Bo after just bringing him back. NOW this week Daniel dies. This show needs new writers.

  78. VAL

    December 28, 2015 at 11:58 am

    This show is up for renewal next year and may be cancelled. Its a shame because the sweeps showed with effort and good writing the ratings can still rise and do so relatively quickly. My problem with Days in addition to all of its darkness is that there never is a payoff. After the horrific trauma Abby and Chad went through why break them up so quickly. Why no wedding? If Kate Mansi is leaving let there be a wedding and then recast or write her off. The audience invested so much into this story and then its off the screen with a snap of your fingers. I believe letting Kassie DePavia go was a mistake. She was the main reason I watched during the sweeps. She had hot chemistry with Justin who is not finished with Adrianne. Great actors can take crappy material and make lemonade. Judy Evans vs Kassie De Pavia. Wow. Again Days shoots itself in the foot by killing a potential super triangle before it hatches. When was the last time Days allowed a couple in love to marry on this show other than Will and Sonny. They’ve killed love and romance and l I don’t understand. I hope the writers would consider Lucas -Gabi. Not only would the shock value freak out the town but it would give Gabi a storyline before she and Ari inevitably leave town to live with Sonny. Hopefully, Days will pick up its game but I won’t hold my breath.

    What about a story line with a person that has a disability and the stigma, discrimination, and bigotry they must face daily-such as epilepsy/seizure disorder? The lack or treatment for persons with mental illness is another matter that has become a prevalent matter, yet little is done to correct matters. Medical care that seriously ignores, and denies the existence of a medical disorder; as well as treatment. Poor hospital care-violations of Public Health codes, Environmental codes, etc. are far too common-but they continue. It would be ideal if a party responsible for inflicting harm on another to undergo similar treatment, defamation of character, and harmful medical care-such as psychiatric psychotropic dope [Haldol is perfect]. I will also include the fact that people frequently make assumptions that are false regarding what someone else said or did, as well as their needs.

    It’s going to be Stefano who gets murdered. And there is a good reason. The actor is in ill health and won’t be returning to the show at any point in the future. It’s been set up for that to happen. At the same time, the other day, Hope and Raf both realized that it was Stefano who is responsible for Bo’s kidnapping. Victor will send one of his goons to off Stefano.

    January 3, 2016 at 4:29 pm

    I think it will be Eric. After he kills Daniel by drunk driving, Nicole or Maggie will go off the deep end and kill him. If it’s Maggie then when Victor finds out he has a heart attack. I dislike the new teens. I so wanted the young Ciara to see her dad when he came back. She was such a good little actress. Maybe Chase will kill Theo. With all he has went through, and he does’t like Ciara and Theo’s friendship. How is Andre alive? He died when when everyone thought it was Tony that died. How is he Stefano’s son when he was Tony’s look alike cousin? Also the Patch and Kayla story like is all messed up. When he was found alive and had a memory loss, He was living a different life that he went back to. Now he was away on a mission? I love the fact they are back together but they didn’t match up the old story line. I loved the old shows with the action and adventures. The epic super couples and the romance.

    I am enjoying the new Days, for the most part.
    Was never a big Bo fan, as played by Peter Reckell. I always enjoyed Robert K-Kelly’s portrayal much more than P.R.’s.
    I have also never been a “Bope” fan. I thought Bo was much better with either Billy OR Carlie. ESPECIALLY when Bo was played by Robert K-Kelly.
    I am not a Dr. Feelgood, I mean, Daniel fan so his leaving doesn’t bother me, other than having to see Nicole suffer ANOTHER loss. I can only HOPE that she is MIRACULOUSLY pregnant or that somehow some of Daniel’s sperm can be saved so she can be artificially inseminated(I don’t even know if that is possible but it’s a SOAP so. . . .). I REALLY want Nicole to have a baby, dammit!

  94. Andy G.

    January 13, 2016 at 7:39 pm

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)

Kyle took to social media sharing a video message on his arrival back in Salem expressing: “BEYOND excited to be rejoining my Days of our Lives family. See y’all soon!” SOD first reported the casting news. (more…)
