DAYS ‘Before The Year Ends’ Mega-Promo: Surprise Returns, Secrets Revealed & Tables Will Turn

At Saturday’s Day of Days 2018 event celebrating the 53rd anniversary of Days of our Lives, fans in attendance were treated to a preview of what’s to come in Salem before the clock strikes midnight and we usher in 2019 on the Jumbo-tron at Universal Citywalk in Universal City, California.

From romance, including a long-awaited moment for #Cin fans between Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), to stunning secrets including an emotional moment between Paul (Christopher Sean) and Will (Chandler Massey), to Sonny (Freddie Smith) finding out just what Kate (Lauren Koslow) did to him, to more “who framed who” moments, to Abigail, now played by the returning Kate Mansi going on the offense to find evidence against Gabi (Camila Banus), who has been gas-lighting her, to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) stepping into help her in a big way.

Then, we find Rafe (Galen Gering) walking into a situation where he finds his wife, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) with Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini), and battles lines being drawn for the custody of Nicole’s daughter, Holly.

Next, ‘before the years ends the promo’ touts a surprise return that will spell trouble for WilSon, a new girl in town that becomes involved in JJ’s (Casey Moss) orbit, and as the voice-over announce says, “Hold on to your party hats!”  It’s the highly-anticipated return of Matt Ashford as Jack Deveraux.

Check out the sneak preview of “All the Drama to Come Before the end of the Year On DAYS” below.  Then, let us know us which storyline, return, or moment are you looking forward to watching most in the comment section below!

Ben and Cierra STILL – light up w/magic… be still my heart on this found twosome. be still … quality acting

ALL 6’1″ Matthew Ashford – ALL of HIM (Jack Deveraux)

I know.. that current story.. has Tripp “blackmailing” or planting evidence to the contrary … I certainly want Tripp on the canvas… and do not want him getting in trouble. it’s obvious to see it’s Ben and Cierra Alice being featured… has MORE romance. which isn’t an understatement for Tripp by any stretch… the writers simply have to write for this enigmatic young man… let’s get Tripp and Kayla BONDING… when Tripp was “assisting” Kayla making rounds long ago… there was a great bonding chemistry with this newfound “stepmom” and “stepson” go their… with the absence of “Patch” this would flesh out their characters . Stephen Nichols is still a head scratcher … when where how and why

soooooo – what is going on with; – the return – Judith Chapman

the upper echelon of dynasty reign supreme : Halloween screen time of things to come? Angelica is not dead after all ? whenever you get a reining queen to surface take hold and walk

fasten your seat belt(s)

thought I read a blip in SOD that Ms. Judith had to keep mum about her “visit” and that she certainly is amenable to “WORKING”

STARS search this out

Overall, this winter preview is super awesome. Am loving how the stories are unfolding, and wished more soaps could do two-minute previews like this. However, due to shooting, I doubt it’s possible. I’m going to miss Marci Miller as Abigail; she’s been cast perfectly in the role, and while it is nice to see Kate Mansi back for a short-period, I’d still love to see Miller return down the line! Also, could do without Matthew Ashford’s return as Jack… would rather see Mark Valley or Steve Wilder return, though, the latter likely wouldn’t due to his issues.

Also.. not loving the pairing of Brady and Chloe; Brady could do and has done so much better than Chloe. She needs to go, ASAP! But, Sarah and Eric? That’s a pairing I am so getting behind! Sad to see Paul leave, because he and Will ultimately belonged together! I hate Julie, but love that she is smacking the s**t out of Gabi, who needs to permanently go back to prison, and never come out again!

Day is the besta show around,no I didnt spell it wrong that is how my late grandma use to talk she would say that Days is the besta one.Holy mackerel I cannot wait to see this,sorry to see Marci Gone.Maybe she will Pop up in a Lifetime movie ,who knows I just saw the woman who played (for the life of me I dont remember her name Nicole on one and I believe she is in a new one next Sat or it could be Sunday but her husband plays a real creep.I wonder if Vivian will come back.I knew that Leo wasn’t dead .This will make Days ratings rise for sure.I love Ben give the man a chance I know he killed people but he wasnt in his right mind.Perhaps if he was on medication he wouldnt have done all of those bad things. Believe me take it from someone who knows not taking your head pills can really mess you up.Before I do go Happy Thanksgivng to everyone.

That’s one heck of an Identity Disorder, turning Abigail into Kate Mansi!

Gotta love the wide-eyed looks of disbelief on Sonny & Will above. They appear to be in shock from a recent election… (too soon?).

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
