As Alison Sweeney is set to depart the NBC soap opera this year after more than two decades as Sami Brady,  the fan favorite posted a special message on her facebook page which relates to the current story, where it looks as if Sami may discover that the man she is about to marry, EJ DiMera (James Scott) has been having an affair with Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi)!

From this week’s promo of DAYS: A mysterious envelope shows up at the DiMera mansion that Sami gets her hands on which has incriminating evidence of EJ and Abby in the throes of passion.   So is it what happens next that will be one of the best episodes for Sweeney of all-time? Well, according to this post below, it surely is!

Alison: “I am so proud of the episode airing on Monday, April 21st. We worked so hard on it, and everyone gave their all. I hope you watch.  Thinking back on all the pivotal episodes I’ve been blessed to be a part of at Days of our Lives,  this without question stands out at the top. And believe me, as we were shooting it everyone was thinking about YOUR reactions. So … I can’t wait to read your thoughts after!! XOXO”

In addition, if you picked up the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Sweeney also mentioned the episode  and elaborated a little more saying:  “In fact, we were in the fan event last November right when we shot those scenes, like giddy, practically from the excitement and the buildup it created in that particular episode. We did a read-through with the director and I am going to say that we dedicated probably at least nine hours or more of rehearsal time toward them.”

If you recall, On-Air On-Soaps had chatted with James and Alison in a very fun interview during that time at the Days of DAYS 2013, which happened right around the shooting of those scenes.

Let us know what you thought of Alison’s statement on the upcoming episode!  What do you think will go down?  Weigh-in!

Nick sent the envelope…no mystery there. I still believe Nick will be murdered for real this time and there will be many suspects…Sami will be sent to prison for the crime(A.S. is leaving) but itll be Percy who actually killed him!!! Once Percy is found out, Sami will be released from prison now played by Kelly Sullivan!!!

It wasn’t Nick, he was with Gaby at the time the envelope was being delivered.

Is this some sort of joke? LOL. It has to be. Sami is way past any of those losers you mentioned and her final story should not be wasted on them.

Right. But, I would like to see closure with Nick the Slick. This soap is getting to be so Mickey Mousish. Too many unsolved plots, too many storylines that are absolutely stupid, such as the looney-toon-Liam…so unrealistic…going too far with this….C’mon, now…let’s go. Oh, and what about the Nick business. Will told Rafe that this time it was not Nick who did anything illegal. Is he kidding!? Attempted rape is legal now? Why doesn’t one of those so-intelligent, wise, sharp-minded women record some of Nick’s underlying threats? So simple….Pleeeease!!!! Have they heard of modern technology? My little 3-year-old niece knows… Read more »

Sami is being recasted I think. But I’m sure the Sami circle, Kate/Lucas/Willl/Nicole & EJ-Maybe? will be gone in the next year. When GL’s Reva left in 1990, her circle of characters, Hawk, Sarah, Josh, Marah, Shane, Phillip, Beth, and Rick within months. Samatha stayed for two years, but was back-burner. Without the group leader, what’s their to stay? And Eve , Teresa, JJ, and All those new folks will be ruling the grounds so expect Will, Kate, and Lucas to follow as well. Sonny and EJ might last a year or two. The new Days of our Lives begins… Read more »

Sami has left before. Ali left in 1995, when Sami left salem for six months. Ali also left in September 1997 when Austin left her at the Alter. She took Will and left. Sami came back for Christmas and stayed til news years. Then she back that February for like three episodes and hung out with Franco. In April, Sami came back full time.

I think Sami will beat the crap out of Abby which causes Abby to miscarry the baby that Stefano knew she would be having. Sami runs off with Lucas and the kids. Abby will blame EJ for keeping her in the dark about the pregnancy. EJ will vow to take Stefano down!

powerful… last two sentences Abby blaming EJ for keeping her in the dark WOW Woah hold on that will ripple A LOT ———– as for taking down Stefano… I thought that was going to happen the last time around… when Kristen was still on the show… Whew! thank goodness it didn’t… be that as it may… with Kristen coming home… she could be the catalyst this time.. and take a side… as she told EJ… “i’m not taking sides”… but.. seriously… for the drama… to ensue… and AS to deliver – act your heart out… this is IT… curtain call…… Read more »

Well personally I am hoping it will be a honest betrayal of broken trust– no guns, no catfights, no over the top screaming matches, just two people trying to come to grips with the reality of infidelity. But since this is DAYS I might be hoping for too much, so whatever happens, I hope it lives up to hype.

Me, too. The other day when Sami whined about her son having a more memorable wedding than her, and when she went home and whined to EJ about Will kicking her out of his apartment-reminded me of how immature the character is and how cartoonish she acts.

Will the character of Sami be re-cast with another actress or will Sami find out about EJ and Abigail and just leave town – I don’t know if fans would accept a re-cast since Allison Sweeney is so strongly assoicated with the role of Sami.

They should not think about recasting until after DAYS 50th. I believe AS will come back for that!

CUZZIE

Damn right I would. They better recast the role. Or if they don’t, at least keep Will on. But if they recast Sami, they need to turn the character into a back-burner contract-day player status, like GL’s Eleni. Have Sami just become Will’s mom, EJ’s wife and mother of their kids, and Marlena’s eldest daughter. Sami can only appear twice every two-to-three weeks. If I head writers, I keep Ali on contract but turn her into a back-burner, and drop Roman, Kate, Lucas immediately!!!! Then Sami would have no more front burner, just like Will. Sami and Will appear two… Read more »

I’m not buying the hype. Days is in a ratings downward spiral, and this is an attempt to get viewers who haven’t been watching because of the sh*tty story, tune in. Sorry but Days screwed the pooch when they destroyed the essence of EJ DiMera’s character by having him cheat on Sami. This ratings stunt backfired on the show. They’ve lost their largest, most vocal fanbase, the one which could trend the show at will. Now they’re trying to get them back. Well, it won’t work this time. People may tune in Monday to see what happens, but no one… Read more »

I disagree. While I HATED this mess with Ej cheating on Sami (cause it’s just so OOC for Ej to ever do to his Samantha), I believe this show and Ejami can overcome it. Despite the poor story choices that TPTB continue to give Ejami, James Scott and Alison Sweeney are perfection when working together in any scenes and it’s because of their chemistry that Ejami works in spite of the crap thrown their way. There are thousands of Ejami’s still rooting for their couple. I’m one of them. And I will continue to root for them as long as… Read more »

I think you missed the point of both posts. It’s the show that will go down in flames, not EJami.

This is the episode all “DOOL” fans have waited on since the affair started. I still think the long-term fallout of Abigail being pregnant could drive a story for years. I can’t wait for the confrontation with Abigail and Sami and Sami telling Jennifer. I love Kate Mansi and hope this story elevates her to one of the Lead Actresses of daytime.

this is why : I’m so excited… and it’s for cast reveal

what if Abs is really preggers?

what if Stefano… who was delicious… in his scenes with EJ… that he knows… all thats gone down…. and UP

this is truly for story

throw in the wrench… and machinations… of on par… Nick.. ready to bring down a notch… EJ… if he doesn’t tame and render Sammi… tight lipped… and steaming in her own… mindset

Nick , who’s acting is sublime… deserves a shot at elevation… Salem’s knight

KM won’t be elevated to a lead actress because the character of Abigail Deveraux is unlikeable. There’s a reason good girl Carrie never stuck around longer than a few years. There’s a reason Taylor Walker was booted from the show. There’s a reason people despise Jennifer Horton and why no couple for her has ever worked out except for with Jack (it was solely BECAUSE of Jack). These characters, Abigail included, are hypocritical. They are deluded. They like to pretend they are constantly the victim in any given situation. They are pious and self righteous. Abigail Deveraux is a home… Read more »

I think you are getting the actress and the character mixed up. Sami has done her share of bad things, but we all love AS. I think Abigail has chemistry with every character, even if I don’t like the storyline. The character of Abigail is flawed, but aren’t we all? How many people made mistakes in the 20s and have huge regrets for the way they handled things when they reflect on the situation. I think the EJ/Abigail storyline was a great shot in the arm for the show. It got people talking about how shocking the storyline has been.… Read more »

I certainly hope the episode is as good as Ali is saying it is because I have not really been impressed with her performances lately.. Ari ZUCKer can act circles around Alison Sweeney IMO. Kristian Alfonso is another talented actress on that show. Alison Sweeney has been coasting for a long time. I will not be sad to say farewell to the character of Sammy Brady.

I can’t wait. Ali and James going to bring the house down with their performance. They are what makes Days interesting for me . I just hope the writers don’t mess it up. EJAMI are the MOST talk about couple on Soaps.Even if you love them or hate them.

I could not be any more excited about those scenes. I have been waiting for months for the reveal and I am rooting for my girl Sami. My heart is breaking for her, but I know she will get through this because she is strong like that I expect Jamison to give stellar performance as only they can. I have stocked up on tissues because I know I am going to be a mess from crying. When the smoke is clear, I hope ejami can survive the betrayal and come out stronger than before. AS is going to bring it… Read more »

Can’t wait for the Ejami show down. James & Ali are their best when paired with one another as EJ & Sami whether it’s making love or fighting they never disappoint. Can’t say I was more then disgusted by what they did to EJ and his love for Samantha but hoping they get through this. On a side note I hope Sami knocks the shit out of What’s her face. Go Samantha Gene.

for this Lady… Ms. Sweeny : who, literally… on her own.. it can be said… saved “our” DOOL.

Sammi, for all intent and purpose… has commanded

her beacon will never dim

I am so excited. Alison Sweeney and James Scott are an amazing acting duo. I have enjoyed watching them in these kinds of heavy scenes for years. Days and the EJ character are going to be shells of themselves after she leaves.

I’m unable to watch live so I’ll be doing lots of fast forwarding. I’m so happy AS is leaving. The only time I like her is when she is in platonic scenes with BD. I’m at a loss as to why this would have needed 9 hours of rehearsal. I’m sure the ratings will be high partly due to it being the day after Easter and many fans may have that day off from work.

Based on Ali’s excitement I am looking forward to the scenes. The Ejami fight will be epic, however I know that they will pull through this crap stronger than ever.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
