Happy to see Alison Sweeney on this list, along with Chandler Massey, Zack Tinker, and Paul Telfer! All of my favorites! Really looking forward to this but Days: bring back Wilson!!!!

This is starting to seem very disrespectful to Stacy Haiduk. If Eileen Davidson wants to come back and those in charge want her, then hire her. But bringing her back only for special events is sending a weird message that Eileen is still the “real” Kristen and Stacy — who has worked her butt off in this role for years — is some kind of place holder. Once was a fun surprise for viewers. Now it’s starting to seem rude. How would any of us feel if our company had a special event and they sidelined you to bring back… Read more »

Eileen Davidson is the REAL Kristen and for me the only one who ought to play the role. I am sick of Stacey Haiduk in the role and wish she would just go away!

I agree that there seems to be needless confusion where Kristen is concerned. I would understand if Eileen wanted to return to DAYS only for guest appearances, like in Beyond Salem and in this upcoming movie. But on the actual show? It’s very jarring going from one scene where Eileen’s Kristen is seducing John in the crypt and Stacy’s Kristen is blackmailing Gwen at the police station. Not a fan of the back-and-forth, and I agree that Stacy has been unbelievably good as Kristen. It’s a tough role to nail down without making her cartoonish, and Stacy’s done an excellent… Read more »

This back and and forth with Stacy and Eileen is not acceptable. I have always loved Eileen, especially on Y&R where Stacy also outshined as Patty. We know it isn’t of Eileen’s doing, but her taking parts away from Stacy,for lack of a better explanation is so disrespectful. It’s like they are telling Stacy that she can play a cat or that loony-toon better.SHAME ON DOOL!

For real! Total agreement. Once was a nice surprise, bit now it’s a pattern and not fai and respectful to Stacy. Eileen is great, but that’s not how you do things. Respect is lacking for Stacy unfortunately.

I totally agree. Ron said the role belongs to Stacy now yet Eileen is brought in for these Peacock specials. While I adore Eileen and her talent, Stacy knocks it out of the park and deserves better. MUCH better.

“The elves are dressed in leather
And the angels are in chains
Christmas with the Devil
The sugar plums are rancid
And the stockings are in flames
Christmas with the Devil
There’s a demon in my belly
And a gremlin in my brain
There’s someone up the chimney hole
And Satan is his name

The rats ate all the presents
And the reindeer ran away
Christmas with the Devil
There’ll be no Father Christmas
‘Cause it’s Evil’s holiday
Christmas with the Devil

No bells in Hell
No snow below
Silent Night, Violent Night
So come, all ye unfaithful
Don’t be left out in the cold
You don’t need no invitation, no…
Your ticket is your soul”

Yes, a very promising cast. But will someone please tell these handsome actors that we want to see their great faces, not these recurring beards. It looked like we were getting away from that… GH’s Josh Swickard looked incredibly gorgeous without that beard all summer. But now they seem to be crawling back. Sorry, not a fan.

A question though: if Will is writing this script about people he knows from Salem then how is Paulina a part of his script? I don’t think Will has ever met Paulina???

I wonder if Days would consider putting Beyond Salem and the new Christmas movie on the NBC app also during the Holidays. I mean school is out, everyone is home. Not veryone is a college football fan. It would expose a lot of new people to the show and they could always return Beyond Salem and the movie to just peacock after the holidays.

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.

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.
