It’s been a gut-wrenching time on Days of our Lives in recent weeks for Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) who is trying to keep his wife Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) spirits up as she desperately needs a heart transplant to survive.

As well, it’s been an emotional time for Kate (Lauren Koslow) and her son, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), as Kate had also been hovering near death and was set to give her heart to Julie, only she wakes up from her coma at the last possible moment!

Now, on the latest episode of the Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast that dropped today (Monday, September 30th), via iTunes and NBC.com/Inside Salem, the one and only Bill Hayes sits down with host, Michael Fairman for an emotional conversation about playing the intense scenes with his longtime real-life love and wife Susan Seaforth Hayes, plus his enduring history with DAYS dating back to 1970 when he first appeared on our TV screens .

Hayes shares that this recent story where Julie is fighting for his life, was one of the toughest he has ever had to tackle in his decades with the show, and much more.

Later on the podcast, Bryan and Lauren share their thoughts as they take listeners behind the scenes of the taping of Kate’s deathbed scenes, where Lucas comes to be by his mother’s side, and Kate gets a reprieve on her life, but what does that mean for Julie?

Make sure to check out ;Inside Salem; and then let us know, what do you think of Bill Hayes’ recent performances as Doug tries to be strong for Julie while he is breaking inside? What do you think will happen next to Kate? Will she get revenge on her nemesis Vivian?  Comment below.

Didn’t see today’s episode yet, but I hope someone thinks to check out Dr. Shah’s heart and finds it’s a match for Julie.

That’s where I thought they were going… but Dr. Psycho bled out on the floor and was probably there for several hours by the time Rafe & pals wrapped up the crime scene, so by that time there’s no way any of his organs would have been viable. Also, Jack stabbed him in the chest. Looked like it would have been a little lower than the heart from what I remember, but I can’t be 666% certain about that. Another heart is going to become suddenly available though. You can bet your soul on it. I’ve already been warned to… Read more »

Kate will definitely get revenge on Vivian. She is a fighter.

Good or bad, I love Kate—she has spunk, spice and style—-
I Hope all the stories have a happy ending. I doubt Julie will die; unless she’s retiring……I just can’t see Days without Julie……
I am so waiting ( with bated breath) to put Sarah out of her misery—-constant griping and wailing—-marry Xander, already!! Problem solved.

Julie won’t have a chance unless Rolf can save her. Julie already died at Doug’s Place

I doubt Julie is dead, though she’s probably pretty close. Doug isn’t a doctor, so nobody’s officially pronounced her “dead” yet.

Given the rapidly declining condition of her heart, she might have enough circulation left to keep a slow blood flow to the brain & other vital organs, but not enough to remain conscious.

Oh Celia
I was starting to like Xander. Would you really want to wish ( all the things you used to describe her) that on him? I loved her solution best, leave town!

Today’s show was so funny with Lucas trying so hard to tell his mother why he was donating her heart. Most of us know whose heart Julie will receive, and it really bothers me that this character is being sacrificed, and for what apparent reason?

I will stop watching Days if we lose Julie. I’ve watched them since 1970, before they were married. I love them. Please, please keep them on.

I did not feel it—-did not stir emotions, nor was I moved. Can’t explain it.
However, moving on——as I questioned on the other site, will Julie get Stefan’s heart? If so, ’tis amazing how blood types always match on soaps, LOL.

Do not like that Steve will take Stephanos’ place and can’t stand Gino character.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
