Looks like both of Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) parents are coming to Salem for a visit!

A show spokesperson for Days of our Lives had told Soap Opera Digest that fan favorite Charles Shaughnessy (Shane Donovan) will return to the NBC soap, and air along with the already returning Patsy Pease (Kimberly) for November sweeps!

Oh boy! What trouble does Theresa get herself into now that brings  Shane and Kimberly into the story? Or, is it just a nice visit from mom and dad?

Charles Shaughnessy last appeared on DAYS in May of 2012, and has been open to returning to play one of the most beloved characters in the history of the NBC soap opera.

So, are you excited with the news of seeing Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease together on-screen?  What do you think of the casting of Jen Lilley as this DAYS supercouples daughter?  Share your thoughts below!

Just what Theresa needs-a kick in the pants from mom & dad! Jen Lilley is knocking it out of the park-she is so good as a “bad”girl-I have to laugh at her sometimes which is a good thing-a good laugh is never bad, right? I love how she talks to herself but I admit I was not crazy about how she treated Vargas. Anyway. Love this storyline.

it’s a treat to rely on good acting. she disarms me… she’s engaging… she’s hot to trot… she speaks up… no matter what the hecks going on… she’s more than that hot “bad” girl… she’s interesting… and captivating… OK enough already… she’s cute as a button… heck… think back on that oh so bad dyed blond hair… bright red lipstick… that cleopatra eye shadow/eye liner… now… she’s a lovely young hot to trout, puts herself out their.. albeit… questionable ethics… all the rest be damned… she’s on fire doing her thing. whilst Hope and the lovely firey aunt kayla reel… Read more »

God, imagine if they could get Charlotte Ross back as Eve Donovan too. It won’t happen of course but Eve is one of the best villaineses this show ever had. Without her setting the tone for villainy, there most certainly wouldn’t have been a Kristen or a Sami doing their evil deeds in the 90s.

Eve is my all time favorite bitch! I would fall apart if
Charlotte Ross came back!! Please come back Charlotte!!
I’ll pull myself togather!!! It would be like striking gold
to see Eve slap her sister’s face!!!! Eve owes Kimberly
at least that much!!!!! I’m over the moon, thinking of all
the possibilities!!!!!!

It will help anchor Theresa ‘s character on the show– a lot of newer viewers didn’t see Kim and Shane so this will help them understand them and their daughter and how they all fit onto the canvas. Doubtful the parents will be there long term, but to help get their daughter firmly affixed into the mix on the show I think it is a good move. And it will be good to see Kim and Shane in town— now if they could only get Bo, (recast if necessary) back we might actually see all the core Bradys home for… Read more »

Thrilled to have Charles Shaunessey back on Days. It would be a coup to have him stay.Perhaps Shane can bring down Stefano for good. Remember, th Diners Mansion was once the Donovan Mansion. After Ejami escape this latest storyline they need a big wedding and a new home.

I think “Shane” should put Teresa over his knee for a much needed spanking.

Miss the good old days!! The super couples and interesting plots!!! I am glad to see them return!! The Sammy show is uninteresting as all get out. I can’t believe they had to make Sammy such a main character. Let them develop the other “super couples” kids into the next act and the show would be much better!

Breaking News

Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

A technical error caused a bit of a firestorm on Monday night, and a retraction early Tuesday morning when an item appeared most notably on TV Line’s partner’s feed, Yahoo News, that had a headline stating that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had been fired from Days of our Lives.

If site visitors and readers looked closely, there were actually two versions of the opening line that appeared.  One of which was noting that Reeves was apologizing for “catching heat” from co-stars and fans for backing a post by Candace Owens that was Anti-Black Lives Matter, and the other one that she was fired from the NBC soap opera.

TV Line early Monday morning issued this statement to clarify what happened and confirmed that Reeves had NOT been fired from DAYS: “Due to technical error, a story was briefly published on TVLine on Monday evening — and has since surfaced on several of our partner feeds, most notably Yahoo — that erroneously claims Days of Our Lives has fired Melissa Reeves. The story is false. Melissa Reeves has not been fired from Days of Our Lives. In the meantime, we apologize for the error.”

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.
