Sweeney, who lost in her bid to win last night in her first ever Daytime Emmy for Lead Actress in her first nomination in almost 22 years playing the role of Sami Brady DiMera, posted the news of her return to the Salem canvas with a picture of her with a DAYS script.

Ali related: ” Guess what?! I get to be a part of celebrating #days50 !!! So thrilled!!!”  Just when Sweeney’s actual return date to the airwaves is has not been announced, but the series is taping episodes that look to be airing in late August/early September at this point in time, since DAYS tapes so far ahead.

It’ll be nice to see Sami again! I wish Ali would have won the Emmy, but if she or Peggy McCay couldn’t, I’m glad Maura did!

I hope the writing is good and they DONT age her children!!!! And there needs to be a reveal that EJ is alive!! The Hollywood exit was very poorly written and contrived…..

That’s a good point, richard. One never knows….perhaps there will be a reveal that EJ is alive. There should be a happy ending for Sami and EJ.

What a shocker!
I mean, really, who didn’t know she’d only be gone for two New York minutes?
I think she just left only to come back in order to garner attention.
But really, Miss Sweeney, how can we miss you if you won’t go away?

Her scenes won’t air until September? This is April. Honestly, Days Of Our Lives tapes too far in advance. Are we expected to be excited about something that won’t be seen for close to 6 months?

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?
