The talented twosome had appeared in storylines and been on and off the canvas over the last year as well.

Madison confirmed her being back at DAYS tweeting: “It’s good to be home. frequentFlyerMiles #Days #TheGoodOldDays #Family #Shelle

I am SO happy to hear this! Ron HATED writing for vets on GH….but DAYS is different as it has always retained and maintained its basic core! Shawn and Belle are a part of that! They should be like the Mike and Nancy from Edge of Night…or Eden and Cruz from Santa Barbara…that happily married couple who get embroiled in everyone else”s messes and dramas…solve the problems…and remain a happy couple. If I swear…..if Ron digs up Jan Spears…then I sincerely hope the show is cancelled!!

Completely agree with the Nancy/Mike, Eden/Cruz idea.

Lol I had to look up Jan Spears, and just the fact that I had to look her up is proof that they don’t need her, in my opinion as well. I have to say to Ron’s defense on GH he is still considered to be the main person responsible for keeping it on the air when he got there, and he not only wrote for vets at the beginning but even juggled characters from OLTL until that horrible Prospect Park got their non promise keeping grubby dishonest hands on them, and then the lawsuit, where he was forced to… Read more »

Yeah, blake….good to see familiar faces. I wonder what their return means for Claire.

Well, it will take over 6 months to find out..
that’s so crazy the way it plays for half a year before new stuff can get in..
wonder what the reason for the 6 month span is..

Maybe we are building up the core family units again with legacy characters and popular talents. DAYS needs that. Just please give them something meaningful to do and do not shuffle them in and out hurriedly. Take a lesson from the Y&R revival. I like what I see in Genoa City.

I absolutely agree. Y&R has improved considerably under Mal Young and Sally Sussman. I said from the time Shawn and Belle were ushered off the canvas that they should be at the top of Ron C’s return list, and here they are! They’re two of the shows best characters and they are both talented actors. Ron said in a recent interview that he wants to write for the vets, and it looks like he’s going to deliver. I hope they are offered contracts and stick around for the long haul.

Good thoughts, Iakovos. You’re right….Days does need legacy characters. We barely see the ‘steady’ ones.

As Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s deja vu all over again”. Didn’t we just go through this revolving door of returning and exiting vets? Ron’s writing can be brilliantly nuanced and also insufferably over the top. I tuned in to see his material debut this week and saw no noticeable change in tone or substance. I was seriously put off by the wacky factor of having the character of Hattie suddenly appear front and center again. Having beloved vets return is in and of itself not a harbinger of great storytelling. The way Days has been going they could feature… Read more »

Sorry but I thought these two characters were as dull as dish water – I didn’t miss them at all (no offense to the actors portraying them intended) – it’s just that, they seemed to constantly re-hash the same on-again, off again romance between them. If other viewers are happy to see them back on the canvas, I guess that’s fine by me but I didn’t find them captivating at all.

Exactly. At least belle isn’t with Phillip. That really stunk up the place. I agree, keep these two apart. I thought Shawn had places to go with Lani. This time around they must show Belle interacting WITH her parent’s, John N Marlena. I’m glad they’re back. Martha Madison has grown on me

Shawn and Belle, children of two supercouples, should be leading. I’m hoping they’re back longterm!!

I couldn’t have said it better, 4ever! You’re the first person I thought of when Ron came, because I knew if you loved the show already no matter what regime, then imagine how much diehard fans/supporters like yourself will love it when a fresh writer comes on with new energy and isn’t just wiping out history and rewriting it to serve his/her needs, but the total opposite, respecting previous story, making new ones, AND writing for the vets in a way that’s so respectful that it looks like a brand new season of the soap! The show has it’s fair… Read more »

I’m very excited that tptb listened to the fans deafening screams of getting a writer that fits the shape of the show, and wants to write for vets. The returns alone and the excitement of the cast and the specific things they’ve said about the new energy on the set and even being excited to read the whole script just tells me this was the right decision, and I thank and respect Sony for doing what needs to be done to take the best care possible of the soaps we have left, by getting writers for Y&R and Days that… Read more »

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.

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.
