Well, I hope Carson is more successful in his role than Nicholas Chavez has been as Spencer Cassadine on GH. The audience needs to give newbies, especially recasts, time to feel comfortable, etc. But nuSpencer just doesn’t even match visually with other cast members. His voice is flat and colorless, just the opposite of what Spencer is. And his antics aren’t helping matters. I imagine he’s on a contract and I hate to see anyone unemployed but I just haven’t seen any improvement yet. I hope I’m proven wrong. Good luck to Carson Boatman.

Wow. In total disagreement with you there and while I was wary of a Spencer recast (and yes, Nicholas Bechtel is a hard act to follow), I totally buy Nicholas Chavez in the role. I actually think he made the role his own in record timing. He has chemistry with everyone and he’s easy on the eyes. I actually find his voice charming. And there’s something very natural about his non verbal acting skills (I.e. when he sees Britt and motions for her to give him a hug, or when he rubs Nikolas’ shoulder when they embrace). Overall I think… Read more »

Yes, I like Nicholas Chavez as Spencer too, in GH. He is very cute, and has made the character his own. I’m also looking forward to seeing Johnny all grown up in Days. We should give newcomers a chance. But I really preferred Precious as Channel in Days.

While I still don’t like the new Spencer, I tend to agree about the new Paris on Days. I sure wish Paris would forget about “Horton” and find herself a nice guy. Maybe she will get back together with Theo when Ciara gets her memory back and she goes back to Ben.Hes got to be in la-la land if he thinks she wants to marry him for love.

I wish Mr. Boatman well in his new role.
As for the new Spencer…I think he’s doing fine and will continue to improve as he settles into the role. I loved the last actor who played the role, but they had to SOARs him to fit with the other teen trio pf actors. Let’s give him a chance, right?

Iam with you friend.As I said in another post, maybe he’s a better actor than we’re giving him credit for, because he’s really got me where as I can’t stand anything about him. He’s turned into a spoiled rich boy who thinks his family and friends are just there for his amusement to taunt, insult, or even destroy as he’s been doing with his dad and Ava’s lives with all his machinations and deceit. God, what a piece of work!

Thanks, Violet. I fear we’re in a minority but that doesn’t mean we’re wrong. Yes, nuSpencer looks cute from certain angles and has nice hair, if they ever find a right style for it. They’re trying all different hair partings! But that disembodied voice just irks me and throws me out of the scenes. Oh well, you can’t have everything.

OMG, he reminds of Scott Reeves when he was that age, what a cutie!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
