Hark! Is that the sound of the death knell, baying out on the morn?

I fear that Lorraine Broderick is being brought in as the closer, here. And with the breaking news about Matt Lauer’s contract… Well… We’d all better start preparing…

Poor Matt Ashford that guy has been fired and hired from DOOL so many times he should write a book on “Why Do They Treat Me So Badly.” Ken Corday has it in for that guy way back when I watched DOOL this guy was getting beat up and the sad thing is he is a good actor.

Sarah Brown just can’t get a break… she’s so talented and get’s brought in for a story and then sidelined or such. Carrie and Austin seemed to be short lived and I wonder if they had known that. Jack leaving just as he and Jennifer are supposedly getting back together must mean Jennifer is doomed to go. DOOL just can’t stay on one track very long and it’s sad for all. I hope they all find other projects!

I hope that general hospital picks her up again so she can join her crazy family,anthony and johnny.On dool they didnt show her as a crazy female like when she played carly,but most of all claudia.Hopefully we hear she will be on contract soon,shes a good actress and is free again to come back to port charles.

SERIOUSLY??????? How many times are they going to write off Matt Ashford’s Jack????? Abandoning his family yet again!?!?! COME ON DAYS!!!! And Austin and Carrie? AGAIN, as soon as Aurie start to pick up steam together, they’re gone!?!? SO, beyond disappointed with this move. You had a cast cut not one year ago, and brought back these favourites. And now just like that you cut them??? I’m sorry for Sarah Brown, too, but her character just never took off. I wanted to like her, and I wanted to root for her, but she was so boring and useless. What about… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more with you that Gabi, Rafe, Roman, and Daniel are useless. Abigail is annoying as well. So what are your thoughts about Daniel and Jennifer again (possibly) and is Kayla and Abe going to get together?

Jules
Guest
Jules

Hmmm…… I kind of like the idea of Abe and Kayla. Of course Kayla and Patch/Lexie and Abe are the supercouples, but Lexie is gone forever and Steve just isn’t returning anytime soon. This pairing will give us a chance to see these legacy characters in ways we never have before (not to mention needed airtime) so I’m open to the idea. Do they have chemistry? Will they work well together? That remains to be seen, but I’m all for giving them a shot and testing those waters. As for Daniel and Jennifer, I’ll be completely honest – I was… Read more »

Looks like a bit of a war to me. MarDar come in and clean up SLs that Higley (and that means Tomlin and Whitsell) created, and now TomWhit come back and undo what they’ve done. Getting rid of Matt? Really? Again? For the millionth time? Either news of Missy’s departure will follow shortly, or they’re putting her back with Dannifer, which was a creation of the previous hacks. Sarah was brought in by MarDar, now TomWhit say see ya. Carrie and Austin? Nevermind to you. Nope, expect to see more of the younger cast — again — because Tomlin made… Read more »

I would like to see Rafe, Ian, Jeenifer, Abby and Gaby exit. I love the pairing of Brady and Nicole and EJ and Sami. Lucas needs to go back to Hong kong and marry Autumn. Since Renee Jones is leaving, I wonder will Abe be on canvas? I also see Joe Mascolo taking his retirement.

This is some pity, down luck for DOOL. Just as they rebooted the show 7 months ago, returning some legendary actors/characters, this is what happens? Already? Just as Carrie was going to spice things up with Rafe, Jack got his wife back after that whole mess he was in, and Austin’s stalker. I wonder who’s next down the list? And for Sarah Brown’s Madison leaving the canvas, I really sensed a new power couple with Brady. DOOL really needed that. Well fans, as the saying goes, “And so are the day’s of our lives,” behind the set of DOOL. smh

I for one will not watch anymore I like madison, Jack, Austin, and Carri Ive watched since I was in grade school with my mother and still have some old episodes on VHS tapes. what they need to do is change the episodes with John, Hope and Stephano I hated it way back when and I still hate it Bo and Hope are a couple and always should be just like Jack and Jennifer, John and Marlena

It makes me sad, especially for Austin and Carrie. But if that’s what needed to save Days from cancellation, then so be it.

Days of Our Lives is in serious danger of cancellation for 2013. So anything that can be done to save the show should be welcomed,even if it means losing some of the favs.

Poor Sarah Brown–crapped on by Brad Bell and now Ken Corday. Her story flatlined as soon as we found out she was married to Duke Lavery.

And Lord God–Matt Ashford is one of the best things to ever happen to the show and he is consistently treated like dirt. In the process, DOOL’s last real supercouple, Jack and Jennifer, get destroyed. Rolling my eyes. Fire the kiddie brigade or something…keep Matt around!

Bad enough all the “familiar ” places are gone in exchange for ridiculous Horton Square and the Brady Pub…..the backdrop for ALL scenes. Now they choose to cut familiar faces too. STRONG DISLIKE to many of the recent decisions and changes made.

Jack is nothing but a clown and a jerk & I won’t miss him a bit. Madison turned me off with all the lying she did to Brady, right up to not mentioning she had a husband when Brady proposed. And frankly, they never seemed to talk or have any kind of relationship together except in bed. I like Austin & Carrie and will miss them.
I hope that they won’t write out John & Marlena again. Or Lucas, Brady, Bo, Hope or any of the DiMeras.

I love MAtt Ashford, Christie Clarke and Patrick Muldoon. I have decided to NEVER watch DAYS again despite the fact that my fave couple EJAMI may get a reunion. So we get a Jenn/Daniel reunion is that it. Is this how Ken Corday is going to treat the long time fans of DAYS? Then Im not going to watch.

I am a HUGE life long Days fan. To a certain extent, I love- or have loved- all of the above performers at one time or another. Sarah Brown was great/legendary on GH. Ashford was fantastic, once upon a time, as part of the Jack/Jen super couple. Many, many, many years ago Muldoon was a HOT Austin. However, with the exception of Christie Clark, NONE of the above actors have been effective in their roles or story lines. Sarah Brown was indeed legendary as the original Carly on GH. Although she did a serviceable job on Days, her character was… Read more »

I agree with many of your points. Besides what you said about Madison, it also doesn’t help that the decision that she makes only lasts for a week or two before she goes in the other direction. Poor writing for a great actress. I slightly disagree about the Will story. I think it has been a well told story for the most part, and I think the audience can and does enjoy it if multiple message board are any indication. If anything, it seems to be one of the few stories the audience truly enjoys right now. That being said,… Read more »

the only storyline i enjoy on there is the Will story. it’s the main reason i started watching this show again & it started strong & then when they rebooted the show it kinda got pushed to the backburner but pulled out once in awhile. then Will had the hot kiss & then weeks with nothing going on really. he finally came out to Marlena & then Sonny & then Gabi this week but the way they talk they’re not gonna focus on him & any pairing but EJ working with him & showing him the business side of things… Read more »

I think it is an absolute joke that they have cut Matthew Ashford. Seriously they have low ratings because they have created stupid storylines for so long. They started going downhill when they originally fired Matt and other great actors. Keep Matthew Ashford and the ratings wil improve. Get rid of the stupid EJ/sami characters. I am now officially done watching DAYS! I only came back to watch Matt and Missy. Honestly Days has become a joke and hopefully they will eventually have such low ratings that the show is cancelled.

Wow! What a creative recipe for killing a show. Really?!? Haven’t TPTB learned anything from all the shows we’ve lost over the past 10-15 years? Building up the returns like DAYS did, only to shuffle them back out the door so soon shows me poor planning. DAYS is very heavy with a talented cast, but this is sad news. I wish them well.

I started watching Days again last fall when I learned Deidre, Drake, Matt, Patrick, and Christie were coming back. Excited that they were rebuilding the core families, but then they started this Carrie/Rafe pairing, which was so uncharacteristic that I began fast-forwarding through Carrie scenes unless they involved Marlena and John. I even began to cheer for Madison and Brady, they could have gone so many directions with her secret, but her being secretly married to Ian….Pul ease! Hopefully the writers can be creative enough to keep John and Marlena together and still have exciting stories for them so they… Read more »

I agree with Stephanie above. Madison being married to this Ian…why was he brought into it in the first plae? But why does Madison have to leave now when Ian will give a divorce to her and she will be with Brady (spoilers)? The recycled storylines with boring Gina/Pawn and EJami will be what causes the drop of ratings, not these people! Their attempt to make more money and get more viewers backfired. Lexie is already leaving, and when everything comes out about EJ, Abe will be mayor. I honestly think the old timers should go, as well as Gabi.… Read more »

EJ raped Sami, and was also responsible for the imposter Rafe raping her. How is that romance? EJ and Nicole are in love and care about each other. Yes he cheated on her, but it is not as bad as raping someone.

Avelina
Guest
Avelina

Sami consented to the sex and I recall that EJ called “Samantha” while he made love to Nicole in an elevator. You can only bring up the rape because thats all youve got. All the time EJ was with Nicole he still loved Sami and the dreams he had about her proved it. EJ would have dumped Nicole like a hot potato had she given him the time of day or even told him that she was pregnany with Sydney.

Dmitri
Guest
Dmitri

EJ fell in love with Sami, yes. But he still raped her. Even if you don’t consider that rape, he was still responsible for the imposter Rafe raping her last spring. EJolebis true love.

Avelina
Guest
Avelina

EJ may have done that to Sami but she put a bulletn in his head and she consented to the sex so that doesnt make it a rape. That happened years ago and thats the only thing that non-EJAMI fans can think of. Nicole took his daughter away from another women and is psychotic. EJAMI true love.
Each to their own I guess- I respect all fan bases.

Dmitri
Guest
Dmitri

You just pointed out the reason why EJami should not be together. She shot him, in the head, when he was drunk and passed out! Nicole has changed, and EJ is trying to in order to please her. I think what Nicole, Sami and EJ have done is terrible, but even Ali Sweeney said that she works best with BD, and EJami cannot work! As a former fan of EJami I can respect your ship, but I juat believe that a romance where rape occured is nasty and unrealistic.

I have thought for several weeks that “Days” has too many characters on the canvas. When Billie and Lucus came back, it seemed to make it feel even more crowded. I am sorry to see Madison/Sarah Brown leave because she is a powerhouse actress. I have hated the writers have made her such a coward every time she is around Ian. If Ken Corday is reading, here are a few suggestions: 1) Bring back Chloe and Cary 2) Show more scenes with Maggie and Victor. They have more chemistry than any of the young couples. 3) Put Jennifer and Daniel… Read more »

OH MY! Not sad at Mads leaving. Surprised Christie and Patrick are gone since they just came on and seemed set to stay awhile. Sad to see them go. Matt too as I like Jack. So is Jen leaving too? Guess Carrie and Austin will return to Switzerland. I think there are others who could go and leave some of these.

I tired of this back and forth. People come on, then Days gets a new writer or whatever and direction is changed. Give us good story!

That was the writing team first mistake the second was the Abby sl. I love caustin and so wish they keep Christie and bring back Austin peck. The writing of Jack was all over the place.

well now GH can bring Matthew Ashford back ! He’d fit in even better now that he’s GH & OLTL alumni. He was Drew Ralston on OLTL 1982 – 1983, Tom Hardy on GH 1995 -1997, and then again on OLTL as serial killer Dr. Stephen Haver from 2003 – 2004.

And boy, he and Kristina Wagner had some hot scenes together when Tom Hardy was dating Felicia!

Ms. Brown could come back again as a 3rd character – but let’s not make her a mob related character this time! ha!

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

The outlet cited, “Following a thorough investigation including contact tracing, quarantines, testing, and a deep cleaning of the studio, the health and safety experts at Days of our Lives have determined that it was safe to return to production before the end of the two-week period. As a result, the show will be back on set tomorrow Oct 20.”

Koslow shared: “Stepping into Monday in alice + olivia black velvet,” She also tagged the post #dressingroomselfie and the words. “Stay strong.”

She also added a quote from poet Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”

So, happy to hear it seems like DAYS is back … once again? Comment below!

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 . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

Days Of Our Lives

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.
