It was a year ago around this time that Alison Sweeney completed her nearly 22-year-run as Sami Brady DiMera on Days of our Lives! The actress who had been busy with other projects including the most highly-rated Hallmark Movie on the network of all-time, Murder She Baked Murder, A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery, made her return to the set of the NBC soap opera today for the show’s upcoming 50th anniversary storylines!

Sweeney’s TV mom,  Deidre Hall (Marlena) posted a picture of her and Sweeney with a message on her official facebook page that related:  “Some days are better than others. And some days are utterly joyous! Today is such a day.”

Now the question is, what will Sami do when she returns to Salem?  How will she pick up with her life post-EJ (James Scott)?  Will Sami ever find out that EJ just may be very much alive thanks to an injection via Kristen  (Eileen Davidson)?

What do you think should happen to Sami when she gets in the mix with the Salemites?  Are you glad to hear that Alison Sweeney is making a return to honor the show’s upcoming huge milestone?  Let us know!

Parts of it, 4ever. When will comes on, I just push that little button with the fad-forward arrow. I don’t know how much longer I have to digest this guy….and John Black.

You are funny or dilusional or actually both. The ratings are scary and everybody and their mothers know and say this soap is totally boring.
Sami was their saving grace for many years but AS has so much better to do, she can be successful HER outside of daytime. She doesn’t need Days as much as Days need her..that’s for sure

To me, the show would benefit from some updated sets and some storylines with a bit of intrigue. I thought the whole bit with Kristen returning just to fall out of a window was idiotic and the “painted backdrop” that was supposed to be Italy was just plain embarrassing to watch. I like Alison Sweeney but whether or not she will find out that EJ is alive through a magic injection is anyone’s guess. It was my understanding that James Scott would not return unless this is for a guest cameo appearance. I suspect that once the show has it’s… Read more »

I looked forward to Kristen’s return but this time around i consider it too contrived…wouldve been better had she got pregs by Erik and tried to pass the child as Bradys…Brady would get custody of the baby, become attached over the next 6 months, then learned the child he thought was his is really Eriks!!! They couldve created more drama with that storyline!!!

Sami may be in danger because of Stefano. I hear he is out for blood because of Kristen’s “death”. If not Sami it could be someone else in Marlena’s family who is on Stefano’s hit list. Maybe even Arianna!

Ali Sweeney is doing a favor to Days by coming back but it will be a short visit (too bad for them and their ratings..lmao)..because she has better and bigger things to do..simple as that.

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?
