On Sunday night, this year’s king and queen of the acting races were crowned at the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys in a ceremony held at the Westin Bonaventure hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

The big awards were saved till the end of the night, where The Bachelor and The Bachelorette host and executive producer, Chris Harrison presented the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series award to Days of our Lives Mary Beth Evans (Kayla).  Nextg, Daytime Emmy winner, Laura Wright (Carly, GH) got a thrill when she was able to open the envelope in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category.  That is because her longtime castmate Tyler Christopher was revealed to be the winner for his portrayal of Nikolas Cassadine.

Mary Beth is just gracious, adorable, classy and so much fun. I love that she is Kayla’s biggest fan and only ever has positive thoughts to share about the shows and people she works with. It’s obvious why she’s daytime’s sweetness <3 Thanks for posting this interview 🙂

I can only applaud those comments. So glad that she is always upbeat and never bashes or disparages daytime–as she said, she’s grateful; since 5 she always wanted to act–and is obviously in love with the profession whenever, where ever she can do it. She comes off as very “real,” someone everyone wants to be around–could see her as a good neighbor, sharing her flowers and veggies from her garden–as well as her recipes. She seems to have life in perspective. Her life is full and well rounded. Bully for her! Many more years of fulfillment for her. Cheers, Mary… Read more »

I said I thought she deserved to win–as well as Finola–even called for a tie between them. 🙂

Further commenting on the Emmys and daytime drama in general: After Mary Beth won–and I heard her talking in another interview about Kayla and Patch on the run and getting to fall in love all over again, I went on youtube and watched those scenes–the “Lady in Red” dream sequence when Kayla can’t hear and she and Patch are dancing and she thinks back to dancing in that sparkling red dress with him, the “hot springs” scene, and I thought what a shame that the writers choose (or do not know how) not to write any love scenes today–the scenes… Read more »

Congrats to both. They have been around so long and they certainly worked for it. I am sorry it wasn’t aired because these two I would have been thrilled to see them accept the Emmy. Tyler and Mary Beth both seem to be real people, and what a treat to not have to see the same old Same old winners. I also remember them both on GH.

I was delighted when Mary Beth won. She has long been a favorite of mine, not simply because of Kayla, but because of how she is. She’s a wonderful example of grace. Her character was basically ignored by Days for four years. Kayla was never given a story of her own in all that time. Despite watching everyone else get stories of their own, whether they were on contract or recurring, she didn’t complain. She just resolved to do her best with what she was given, little though it was. This year, she was given an opportunity. She did some… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
