In a four part segment, On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman visited the set of NBC’s Days of our Lives to learn and discover how the stars of DAYS stay fit, how they look so beautiful on camera, what they eat, or what hidden talents they may have!

In this first segment at the start of our day, Melissa Reeves  (Jennifer) showed Michael how to cook her infamous Chicken Pot Pie which is featured in Days of our Lives Better Living on sale now and is the perfect coffee table gift for any Salem fan for the holidays!

As you will see, Michael has cooking-phobia, and Melissa tries to guide Michael through how to make her dish which is a favorite with her husband former GH star, Scott Reeves! In addition, Melissa shares her thoughts on the ongoing romantic turmoil between Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Jennifer, and what is has been like for her having the great casting addition of Casey Moss (JJ) playing her on-screen son!

Now, get ready to watch as Melissa and Michael attempt to cook up a storm at the Brady Pub!  Will you try this recipe at home?

Thank you, Michael! Missy is cute and seems so sweet! One thing – please don’t tell me Dannifer still exists 4 months from now?! Ugh….worst couple/pairing in the history of EVER! Jennifer Rose Horton was one of my absolute favorite characters on Days, but pairing her with Daniel, aka Dr. Perv, has done nothing but drag her (and Dan) down and altogether destroy her personality from all angles….and I’m not gonna even rant about how terrible it was that the redux Dannifer pimping/pairing came full force like 5 minutes after the horrific death of the love of Jen’s life. Speaking… Read more »

there’s one thing about Jenn; that you can’t take away: she’s a mother

and it’s gelling and a joy to watch grans’ jewel mother Abbi and JJ.

I’m gushing over how beautiful and wonderful her sharing her start with Casey Moss…. whom she screen tested with and click immediately

Casey is in fact a serious good actor… he treats and revels in his show. thank you.

Jenn…. it’s not working with Daniel. I don’t know… will it be Liam?

Liam shoudve been Frankie Brady instead…Jens old boyfriend returns…will they rekindle their old romance? Or will J.J. who starts to like Daniel try to reunite him with his mother, Jen?

I hope she can cook better than she acts!!! I would love it if DOOL would recast Jennifer! I’ve always loved the character and even loved Missy playing her when she was younger. But now I feel she is one dimensional and unwatchable. I find it hard to believe that any man would be with Jennifer or anyone would be a friend of hers! RECAST!

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?
