Aren’t the guests going to be guarded as they know they’re being filmed? I just don’t think it’s a necessary show. Let them get together for their potlucks without the cameras.

EXACTLY! Why do I want to watch people eating and talking about themselves or stuff I’m not privy to? I want to be entertained or educated when I watch TV. I guess it’s a relatively cheap show to make and that’s probably why it was bought. Love Ali S, but I just can’t see how this even makes it on any radar as a TV show. Slim pickings.

Why does everything have to be REALITY, when of course we all know there is nothing REAL about any of it? Everyone wants to be on tv-I prefer shows with gorgeous actors (OLTL) to “real” people. Why do doctors who are already DOCTORS, need to have a tv show? And all these others on the awful new ABC replacement shows-most of them are already on other shows! Taking away jobs from our beloved actors & crews, why so they can be on 2 tv shows? No interest in this new show from Ali. I love her on Days but that’s… Read more »

Disagree this girl has some flicker, fire on her eyes..she is not boring that being said this show seems useless and boring, not her..Denise Richards will be on it maybe if Charlie Sheen would make a guest appearance, it would become exiting (but he never will..lol..i can dream..) and it would be a hit instantly ! But no it will be only d-list/c-list mom celeb who talk about food or cosmetics or pregnancy..shallow and boring, Alison and..Denise you can do better girls.

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?
