“His bags are packed, he’s ready to go …. leavin’ on a jet plane”, or so the song goes.  But Days of our Lives Billy Flynn will be back very shortly to tape new episodes as Chad DiMera following the long holiday break at the NBC soap opera.  However never one to sit idly by, Flynn during his time off is shooting an exciting new film, as we previously announced, D.O.A. Blood River.  

Flynn shared an adorbs photo of his suitcase, with his cat sitting in the middle of it, and expressing: “Leaving tomorrow for Louisiana to start shooting the adventure that is @doabloodriver and my oldest boy Regan isn’t to happy about it…#thestruggleisreal #lovehard #dadwillbehomesoon #catdaddy”

In D.O.A. Blood River, Billy stars along with D. B. Sweeney and Chris Mulkey in a tale inspired by Rudolph Mate’s 1950 noir thriller. In story, the film follows pharmaceutical salesman Sam Collins as he travels from Los Angeles to a small town in Louisiana to sign the business deal of his career with Dr. Alexander, a doctor specializing in Vaccine Research.  However, the outcome is not at all what he expected. D.O.A. Blood River is written and helmed by Stephen C. Sepher.

You can follow the film via its Twitter handle @DOABloodRiver for updates as well!

Love Billy Flynn and will always support his career. I am anxious for his movie and know it will be great! However, as for the storyline between Chad and Gabi on Days….that truly makes me sick on every level. Can’t wait for Days to put the best pair back together which of course is Chad and Abby. I truly believe they belong together. The thought of him with anyone else on the show makes me all kinds of sick. So Days and/or Dena, please give the fans what they want. That would be Chabby.

The storyline could take a even more sickening turn, Lora.

JJ will discover Abby hiding in the attic. He’ll probably keep her secret…

Jennifer could have a relapse from the pressure of keeping Abby’s secret, causing her to pop pills again. Her mind could turn to mush. She can become paranoid that JJ could spill the beans about Abby or arrest Jennifer for dope. To prevent that from happening, Jennifer can lock JJ in the attic with Abby. Jennifer can observe Chad and Gabi getting closer and closer and update the siblings of the progression of the Chabi relationship. Jennifer’s drug riddled mind could tell her that her children are better off locked in the attic than having anything to do with Chad and Gabi. Abby and JJ are updated relentlessly and tortured by Jennifer’s words of Chabi until they turn to each other for comfort…a ‘Flowers in the Attic’ type storyline. Then nine months later a baby is born. They can name the baby Nicest, Scient, or Insect (anagrams for incest)!

I am very happy for Billy Flynn, he is a great actor, but I do not want him to leave Days of Our Lives, and he needs to get back with Abby, I don’t like him with Gabi. Put JJ and Gabi back together and Chad back with Abby. Good luck Billy in your new movie!

i’m with you… selfishly… all productions need to give them “outs” to fly.

JUST KNOW WHERE YOUR HOME is…. with us.

I just read somewhere… that DAYS has gone black… for a couple months.

November 16, 2016 through January 16, 2017. it’s said they have 7 months of REEL in the can… and this two month stretch… will bring that down to 5 months.

what can we do… ??? sigh.

DAYS has been good again

I haven’t seen Abs and Chad together… and it will happen… but .. it’s a wonder… that NEW ABS has chemistry with Melissa Reeves… that’s saying something

Marci Miller … has HIT “it” and is off and running… Good for her.

I just adore Gabbs as well… she’s the cutest … but she belongs with JJ

I was referring to the 1987 film, ‘Flowers in the Attic’, Patrick. As for GV’s return, I believe he’ll be onscreen as Eric starting in February. Eric could reconnect with Jennifer, but I’m still predicting Chloe is having Ericole’s baby!

Congrats to him but this week I have seen AMC’s alumni, the new 90610 blond actress and etc. It appears that Hallmark has taken over Lifetime’s job of hiring formal Soap stars and many of the movies have substance.

Abigail is weird if me out behaving like she still has issues. I’m not ready to wish her on Chad and Thomas in her current state. He’s been through enough. It’s time for love and happiness.

Why is it ridiculous for Billy Flynn to do a movie, Linda, or was your comment meant to be in reply to mine?

If it was geared towards me, then that’s OK. I think it’s ridiculous too, but I was just pointing out how much worse things could turn out. I’m not hoping for a storyline like that and I don’t think DAYS is going there, but one never knows…

Gabi and Chad don’t fit and (whisper her lines so nobody understands what she is saying) Hope and Rafael don’t either. Get rid of the new abby and at the same time ciara. The outcome will be a happy community in Sillysalem.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

Courtesy/NBC

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.

The Can’t-Miss Week of Days of our Lives: What Happened The Night Adrienne Died? And … More Questions Answered

Make sure to catch Days of our Lives on any platform you can next week! (The President Donald Trump impeachment hearings could alter the regularly scheduled daytime time slot for the series on NBC).  For, it is a pivotal one for fans that have been following along the major storylines of the innovative time jump that started to air last November.

In one emotional week, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Justin (Wally Kurth) revisit the last day of Adrienne’s life — which happens to be last Mother’s Day.  In addition, Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) goes into labor.  While. Brady (Eric Martsolf) causes tension when he brings Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) to his parents’ townhouse for Mother’s Day.  Plus, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) gets an upsetting visit from someone from her past.  How does this all tie-in to what went down that fateful night?

The latest NBC promo for the series promises we will learn what happened to Adrienne, especially since on Friday’s episode, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) told Will(Chandler Massey) he is not responsible for his mother-in-laws death AFTER he signed the divorce papers with Sonny.   Plus major intel on what happened to Brady and Kristen’s baby and how Haley Chen (Thia Megia) died, which had left an anguished JJ (Casey Moss) turning back to drugs.
