Remember in On-Air On-Soaps recent video interviews from A Day of DAYS 2011 with James Scott (EJ) we discussed some upcoming “blackmail”? And later we spoke with Chandler Massey (Will) and Camila Banus (Gabi) to get a preview of what is going to happen with Will’s coming out story?  Well, we can now reveal, thanks to a very revealing interview with TV Guide with Chandler Massey, that Will’s coming out story is going to be one fraught with so much intense drama, that it could be one story for the record books. EJ and Will are going to both blackmail each other and Will’s secret sexuality will be used as leverage by EJ!   Plus, next week Will gets stinking drunk and let’s a roomful people know exactly what he thinks of them!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Chandler on EJ getting wise to Will’s sexuality leading to a mutual blackmail!:  “When Will’s plan to move in with Gabi fails, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. He wants to leave Salem so he tries to blackmail EJ into giving him money. But then EJ turns the tables on Will and threatens to reveal he’s gay. It turns into this master-slave relationship.”

Chandler on EJ stooping this low to blackmail a young kid who is trying to come to grips with who he is sexually: “EJ is not afraid to go there, and I think it’s great that Days has the nerve. Our writers certainly have balls. I was shocked to read some of the scripts. Other shows might be afraid to go this direction with a story that’s this potentially sensitive but I think what we’re doing is so much richer and dramatic because of it. Daytime TV has fallen on hard times. Now is the time to take risks. It’s time to go big or go home.”

Chandler on Monday’s upcoming December 5th episode where Will gets drunk at a Christmas Party:  “Hell, yeah! And the whole family plus the mayor is there! Will decides he’s been through so much s–t that he deserves a drink. He drinks too much and gets rowdy, telling everybody exactly how he feels, which for an actor is always fun! Those are some of my favorite scenes I’ve ever shot and a great opportunity to show a wider range and a different side of Will. He’s lashing out at his mom, mostly. He’s calling her out on everything she’s done to everyone present in the room.”

So what do you think of the upcoming plot twists? Let us know!

Chandler Massey is hitting it out of the park with every scene. One of the best young actors to ever come out of daytime.

Chandler Massey is a good actor. I have enjoyed his work so far. But I do not think much of this upcoming gay storyline. It seems pointless. I think Days is spreading itself too thin creatively. You cannot please everybody. Viewers are not as patient as they have been in years past. Gay storylines are divisive. I think this is a wrong move for this show. Other storylines are good right now. Not looking forward at all to this one.

Sounds like fun! Can’t wait. I’ll be watching.

Just wondering how EJ figures out Will is gay. Does he catch him with a guy or does his gaydar just go off?

Chandler Massey is awesome! The scene where he wrecked Maggie’s kitchen was phenomenal acting as far as I’m concerned! Emmy worthy!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
