“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!

So, is Billy Flynn well on his way to becoming a name in motion pictures? Are you excited to see how D.O.A Blood River turns out? And, on Days of our Lives, are you enjoying the makings of the Gabi (Camila Banus) and Chad romance?  Comment below!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
