Not too impressed with just that pic, but I’ll give him a chance.

He should be in Salem…the town needs more Hortons, and in the Horton home! My friend Jim, once pointed out the Horton clock remains at 7:10! Why dont they change it or is it there as a non working clock for decoration only?

Clocks in general are not used in soaps because scenes and shows are often shot out of sequence making it a nightmare to maintain continuity. Also depending on the soap, scenes are often stopped and redone- so someone would have to change the clock to reflect it. It too much hassle. So this clock is meant to be decoration only, and the face of it has been darken to disguise the time.
The way I look at it is this— it is a family heirloom that is broken, but no one wants to throw it away, so it sits there, but doesn’t work.
The problem isn’t the clock, the problem is the show is so dull people are looking at the background to amuse themselves. I am surprise there isn’t a facebook page devoted to figuring out what the mysterious meaning behind the number 7:10 is LOL.

LOL…my friend Jim also has a clock on his own fireplace he uses for decoration only. He also pointed out the couch with pillows in the time square that never gets dirty…also the offices of Hope, Rafe, Marlena and Jen are the same set which was also used as an examining room. Guess we are really bored! Thanks for the reply!

meant town square…

3/6/2015 he is finEE as hell.just sayn he needs to call me

I thought Abigail or Jen said he was just going by Jack now and not JJ. Glad they finally cast him and looking forward to see what they do with him.

I just love this time of year, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, a troubled youth is returning to Salem– all signs that summer will soon be here, along with the inevitable teen story line. Now I can finally pack up my winter gear and get out my flip flops.

Does Abe have any other family members? This is show becoming too boring for me. I’m glad OLTL & AMC are back.

Abe’s half-brother-in-law, Cameron. But I agree, the show is SO boring!!! I just read the recaps now, don’t even watch it.

Cameron is Abe’s brother-in-law. No half. He was Lexie’s half brother, maybe that’s where you’re confused.

He has another son, Brandon, with Nicole’s mother, Fay. And his MIL Celeste. I’d like them to bring Celeste back, but the original one, not the recast they had when Lexie died.

If you are a preteen then this show my be for you. Enough baby’s as much as I live the show. No John McBain
No more Todd. Just new babies

Glad to see him in town, but we ALL know it’ll be another Dannifer story. However, I’m just relieved it ain’t another darned love triangle that ruins a beloved character. Jack died after that awful triangle. Nicole and Chloe were demonized by it. But heck, at least we have a family member who disapproves instead of worshipping The Glorious St. DanTan. Perhaps Lucas can have more airtime. Let him and JJ team up to split up Dannifer! It would make a funny, interesting storyline!

Sounds good to me.

Really not a fan of teen storylines at all and not looking forward to Jen Lilley on the show since she annoyed me with her shrieking voice on GH.

Love it!!

Is he related to Ron Moss from B&B?

I’m enjoying Days. Not enjoying Dan and Jen, since they are uber boring together.

I so agree! I think Melissa Reeves needs to go! We need an actress to play Jen that can bring some fire like the old Jack and Jennifer days!

I like Melissa Reeves, just don’t pair her with Dan. I am a Jack fan and hate that they killed him off.

Dr. Dan is okay too, just not with Melissa. I think she’s too vanilla for him. Nothing wrong with vanilla, but not for Dan. Maybe Dan and Maxine should hook up! She’d give him a run for his money.

They need to recast that snooze fest Jennifer! Melissa Reeves is just unwatchable!! I loved her when she played younger Jennifer but can’t stand the way she is as a middle age Jennifer. I now fast forward every scene she is in! Anyone else feel this way? I can’t wait to see some new blood though!

Casey Moss was born in 2004? So he’s 9 years old? Please! LOL

JJ was born in 2004….the character, not the actor.

The Jennifer & Daniel coupling is boring as all hell. And, JJ’s resentment is not ramping up the storyline. Jennifer should just become a nun, she is always so holier than thou.

Seriously??? JJ was born in 2004…that makes him 9yrs old, yet they’ve cast a dude that’s twice that age??? C’mon!!

Ron Carlivati Talks on Decision to Make Days of our Lives 15000th Episode About Doug’s Funeral, and Previews Chances for WGA Award

This week, Days of our Lives celebrated the taping of their 15,000th episode. In of it itself, that is an incredible accomplishment for the long-running soap opera currently streaming on Peacock.

However, this on set gathering was a bit different. Though the show is celebrating their achievement, they are also in the middle of taping scenes surrounding the death and the funeral of Doug Williams, played by the late Bill Hayes, who passed away on January 12th of this year at the age of 98.

As previously revealed many longtime favorites are back to honor Bill and the character of Doug including: Gloria Loring (Liz), Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Matthew Ashford (Jack), Maree Cheatham (Marie), Victoria Konefal (Ciara) and Stephen Schnetzer (Steve) to name but a few.

Michael Fairman TV was in attendance and spoke with Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati to gain some insight into how the 15,000 episode was crafted and the decision to honor the character of Doug Williams and Bill Hayes as its epicenter. In addition, Ron weighed-in on this Sunday’s April 14th WGA (Writers Guild of America) Awards, where he and his writing team are facing off with General Hospital for the daytime drama prize. Here’s what Ron shared below.

Was this your idea to make the 15,000th episode centered around Doug’s funeral and passing?

RON: It was. When you’re looking at it, and laying out the calendar for the whole year and you see 15,000 is coming up, we’re like, “What are we going to do?” And then, we got the news that Bill had passed away and something kind of clicked. I was like, “We should honor Doug on that show.” So then, we started to kind of build around that … when does he pass away? How does he pass away? Who could come back? You know, it’s a lot.  I’m very pleased with the returns that we got as there’s so much that you could do. We wanted everybody we could get. So, we put together a wish list and Janet Drucker (co-executive producer, Days of our Lives) made it happen.

You have Melissa Reeves back as Jennifer, when the role was last played by Cady McClain. What has it meant to have Missy back for these shows?

RON: It was so nice to see Missy Reeves. I think Cady has done such a good job, but on the 15,000th episode to see Missy as Jennifer, it’s a big deal. So having her was great, and overall, the milestone was a big undertaking, because you want to live up to it. You want the 15,000th episode to be good. Now, it has a lot of real emotion that you’re playing. because for the cast and the crew they’re honoring Bill Hayes just as much as we’re honoring Doug Williams.

Was it hard for you and the team to write this episode?

RON: Yes. I’ll tell you why it was hard to write.  When I wrote, for example, Asa’s (Phillip Carey) death on One Life to Live or Victor’s (John Aniston) on DAYS, Asa is a different type of character. Like, you could have characters going, “Oh! I’m glad he is dead.” You could have different points of view, but with Doug, you’re not having that. Every person loves this man. No one had a bad relationship with him. So, you’re challenge as a writer is how do you make it that not everybody’s saying the same thing and doing the same thing. And so, we tried to find ways to make the episode about all the familial relationships and yet, how do you make it about Doug and yet broaden the scope.

I had spoken to Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), a week after Bill’s memorial, for an interview. She said that she felt very fortunate that you did include her on discussions of how you would tackle Doug’s passing. How did that conversation go?

RON: First, I attended Bill’s funeral, which was incredible. I said to so many people it was an emotional service, but it was hard to be sad at this. The guy had an incredible life and it was an incredible celebration. And so, you’re sitting there watching this knowing that you now have to write something similar. And how do you write something that lives up to what you just witnessed? I wanted to talk to Susan to get her thoughts about, you know, how much do you want this to be about keeping Bill separate from Doug. How comfortable are you sharing your grief. She was incredible to talk to. It was a great chat.

You’re in the middle of taping these major scenes for the 15,000 episode to air in December. How do you think it’s going? Have you seen any of the scenes?

RON:  I haven’t seeing anything. I mean, we were still making changes to the script up till this morning!

Photo: JPI

The Writers Guild Awards are this Sunday, April 14th and once again this year there are two daytime drama nominees, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. How are you feeling about your chances this year?

RON: It is often just GH and us in the category. I’ve won three years in a row, so I’m kind of feeling like it’s their turn.

Photo: JPI

What episodes did you submit for contention? If I recall, they had to do with Victor’s memorial.

RON: The episodes we submitted were centered around Victor’s funeral. I think one has story with Vivian. We had some fun stuff, we had some emotional stuff at Victor’s death, and I am pretty sure that our submission was three episodes right around that time.

Did you make the decision to go with those episodes because there was a mix of humor and drama?

RON: I like to have some humor, but it was also the funeral, then there’s Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) giving birth, and then Vivian’s (Louise Sorel) crashing the reading of the will. So, we had a lot of fun and it’s hard sometimes to pick three that tell a story, as opposed to submitting for the Daytime Emmys, where the writing team only submits two shows.  So, we shall see how it goes on Sunday.

Days of our Lives Reveals Newcomers Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon

On the official Days of our Lives Instagram account, a photo has appeared featuring new additions to Salem, Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon.  The Peacock streaming soap opera is not offering up just who they are playing.

However, the smart money seems to be that Jimenez is a recast Gabi Hernandez and Calderon potentially her brother, Dario Hernandez, since the two actors are seen standing in Rafe’s (Galen Gering) kitchen.

In story, Gabi has been stuck in prison for “murdering” Li Shin. Looks like the character will be brought back on to the canvas, but will Gabi reunite with Stefan (Brandon Barash)?

If Calderon proves to be Dario that character has been off the show since 2017, when soap vet Jordi Vilasuso played the part. Dario departed Salem to avoid getting locked up in the slammer and in the process granted Abigail a divorce while in hiding.

If Jimenez looks familiar, she has been featured in roles on Pretty Little Liars,The Newsroom, NCIS, Maya and Breaking Tradition. Calderon has appeared in Walking Dead: World Beyond, and a few episodes of the soapy, The Haves and the Have Nots.

Photo: JPI

As for Camila Banus, her last day on the DAYS set was back on April 28, 2023, when she revealed she was exiting the role of Gabi, a role she made soap-famous for 13 years.

Do you think Cherie and Al are the new Gabi and Dario? If not, who do you think they are playing? Weigh-in below.
