Not familiar with her work on DAYS, but I know her from PASSIONS and know she is a great actress. I think that OLTL should snag her if Amanda Setton is not intent on returning to OLTL anytime soon. I can picture Lindsay in the role of Kim and I think she would do an amazing job! Plus, it would give OLTL a reason to have Clint on more…he has been MIA for far too long.

I am shocked with this sudden news! Lindsay is a powerhouse of an actress and kept numerous fans glued to the screen during her 9 year Passions run. The only reason I dove back into Days was for her joining the cast. I know Lindsay will find the perfect role soon, so her fans will patiently wait for the right decision.
After her last episode I will no longer tune in, there you have it TPTB.

Lindsey is never going to get her man, Ethan. alius Brady Black. This romance want see an end if you FIRE her. She,s a great actress. Boo to you for taking her off.

My first day back after 3 years off from DOOL was Lindsay’s first day. Her last day will be my last day. I don’t think TPTB can see what’s in front of them. EJ-Arianna were cute together, and could have made a nice little couple for a while. Instead we have Rafe and Sami getting back together around Labor Day and then what…..EJ sits home alone playing chess?? There isn’t another woman on DOOL who works with him.

This is terrible news. I started back watching when Lindsay came on, and now she’s leaving after just a year! She’s one of the best actresses on daytime, I hope another soap like General Hospital snags her up soon. This might make me quit watching Days after she leaves. Maybe if they bring Jack and Jennifer back I MIGHT stick around…

Are you kidding Lindsay got fired from Days, What a lousy move, If she didn’t see eye to
eye with Brady you should have gotten a new boyfriend for her. Get rid of Nicole she
is obnoxious,If it weren’t for Galen Gering I would never watch the show again, Also tell Allison Sweeney to stop wining and screaming all the time She does not know a goodf
thing when it is right in front of her,

I am mad beyond belief…Never really watched days until LH arrive. I have never seen such incompentence on a soap in my life. I totally enjoyed ej and ari. I thought it would have beautiful see JS as a heartthrob. But the brainiac kept every story line long as hell and they just ruin it for me. Her last day will be mine.

I was actually very shocked when i heard the news..LH is such a wonderful actress and I think Days is making a big mistake letting her go. I hope she gets snagged by another (smarter) soap. I only started watching Days when she came on and loved the idea of her and Ej as a couple..they have such chemistry..her last day will also be mine. She is a great actress and I wish her all the best in the future!

Lindsay is a talented actress. But I didnt see a future with her on days of our lives, The writers did a bad job writing her character. Bring Lindsay to General hospital. She can somehow have ties to , Olivia, brooklyn, or maybe even a love interest for Sonny or Johnny. Lindsay is a ver dynamic and captivating. Another idea is that we been hearing alot about the lopez brother. Lindsay character name was theresa lopez fitzerald on Passions. Maybe General Hospital Can use lindsay as a sister of the lopez brothers and she falls inlove with Johnny Zacarah. THey… Read more »

Day’s just makes one mistake after another. I’ve had enought. Lindsay’s last day will be mine too. I’ve been watching Day’s for 42 years. I can’t do it anymore. This is the straw that broke the camels back. I hope one of the smarter soaps pick up Lindsay and do right by her. Dirty rotten shame..

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

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?
