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.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
