I root for good writing first

If i can choose the pairs that i want to see on Vday that would be Brady/Chloe Broe always has been my fav couple every now and then they have this little scene that keep me waiting for more there’s a lot to explore about what happen between us in vienna
I also root for Ej/Sami mostly because of the crazy chemistry between james and ali i would want the writers to give them a real chance
I love Bope , State and Magic wish they were more on screen
Mate is hard to enjoy knowing that’s going to end soon 🙁

I loved Carly & Lawrence, so I’d never root for Carly & Daniel – besides CC and SC have anti-chemistry together, on the awkward scale they’re a perfect 10 together. Both excellent actors but they a zero in the romance department. Especially compared to Daniel & Chloe who have the most amazing chemistry even though their storyline never got much time & attention.

I love Carly with Lawrence too, bring him back.

Love Nicole and Brady
Love Philip and Chloe

I’m just not seeing Gabi and Will as a couple, why any girl be into Will is beyond me, ugh. My teenager doesn’t think much of Will either, she thinks he’s too whiny and boring.

Though I am happy about Victor/Maggie and Stefano/Kate the most exciting couple on that promo is Philip diving in to save Chloe. Philip could dive in to save me anyday, lol!!! Why Ken Corday and Dena Higley didn’t have the common sense to utilize Jay Johnson more is beyond me, this is Days and the viewers loss. Here was this big paternity storyline where he’s the father of Chloe’s baby and it featured Daniel and Melanie. Blah! I am going to miss JKJ as Philip I hope he lands a great role on prime time.

Happy for Bo and Hope, it will be interesting seeing what happens between them but poor Carly. I guess Daniel and Carly are going to be put together, at least she isn’t his patient.

Don’t care about Taylor I hope they don’t stick her with Ej since she is such a goody-goody. Miss Brady and Nicole together, they were exciting to watch.

Criss

EJAMI they should have been in the promo DOOL keeps missing the boat on one of the best couples they have! The best couple ever IMO with the hottest chemistry between two charaters, my hope is that DOOL’s writers wake up and start to write for this great couple before they lose alot of their viewers. I will never buy EJ and Sami with anyone else when EJAMI’s love story has yet to be written.

Julie

EJ and Taylor have me so excited!

I’m also rooting for Philip/Chloe, Maggie/Victor and Stefano/Kate!!

Criss just said it all for me.
EJ and Sami need a good story writen for them.
Who cares about any of this other stuff being writen for them, or any of the other people they are put with.

EJ and Sami are gold.

dana

If EJAMO is so gold, why do they ALWAYS tamk the ratings?

Oh yeah, because he RAPED her.

mememe

And you may be surprised soon as to what tanks the ratings.

It won’t be EJ and Sami since they’ve been destroyed, that is for sure.

Anony

Oh, gee the rape argument again: how stunningly refreshing (sarcasm)…

First of all, there’s been rape before (eg: L & L on GH; L & B on DOOL) so if the will is there, tptb can turn it around if they want it to. Those couples became very popular and were even “supercouples” on those cited soaps. EJami, on the other hand, have NEVER had the writing in their favor, nevertheless, they have a massive following…

Second, as you STILL don’t realise: a couple does NOT make or break the show! There are other factors that contribute to a ratings increase or decline (eg: storylines, pacing, weather, etc). Furthermore, the ratings are in the crapper at the moment and is EJami anywhere in sight? Nope, as mememe mentioned, they have never been further apart and from the looks of things they won’t be in the cards anytime in the near future (since tiic are hellbent on destroying them).

EJ and Sami. Always EJ and Sami.

Here that, PTB? EJ and Sami! 😀

Sami and EJ, we’ve waited long enough for crying out loud!

Criss hit the nail on the head. EJ and Sami with the extraordinary chemistry James Scott & Alison Sweeney share are compelling & charasmatic together with unlimited potential. It is so hard to comprehend why TPTB don’t capitalize on this goldmine they’ve got with them. EJ and Sami are the couple I just can’t ever give up on. When something is so natural & engaging as what EJ & Samantha share nothing else will do. They get my vote & always will.

Susan

I will always vote for and want Ejami!!! The chemistry and connections between Alison and James far outshines ANY combination with either actor!!

EJ and Taylor…start from scratch…so many possibilities. I never want to see Ejami on my screen again…I am so tired of the wash, rinse, and repeat.

Also Philip/Chloe…they have always belonged together..

EJ & Sami. Nothing else will do.

EJ’s heart is Sami’s. And vice versa. She needs to remember who she is and stop being afraid to embrace how she feels. Taylor? Sorry, not buying it. I’d also like to see Carly and Lawrence and Jennifer and Jack—wishful thinking maybe.

Renee32

Finally, something for this EJ fan to be excited about! I’m looking forward to and rooting for EJ and Taylor! I’m tired of watching EJ pine for a woman that doesn’t love him and has never made him her first choice-EJ deserves better! I want to see EJ in love with a woman that will unabashedly love him with her whole heart and shout it to the world regardless of him being a DiMera! James Scott, the Four-Peat Adonis should always be in a romantic story! GO EJames and GO EJaylor!

Shelly

I want to see Brady/Nicole together again. I cannot understand why the show just threw away that pairing when he and Nicole sizzle together. The fact that Nicole was placed with EJ just to be a spoiler to EJ/Taylor just stinks. I want Nicole back with Brady ASAP!!!!

Vivi

Sami and Rafe all the way!!!

Your statement “get together and stay together in Salem” poses a problem for me because Days doesn’t do “stay together”.. They put people together briefly so that they can tear them apart. And for me, personally, their disrespect for the institution of marriage is offensive, especially considering Day’s illustrious past.

Melanie and Philip married although, on the eve of her wedding, Melanie was writing letters to Nathan inquiring about his feelings. Then shortly after the wedding Philp committed adultery because he “thought” Melanie had betrayed him.. They had Dr. Dan marry Chloe so that Dan, who is no angel himself, could reject Chloe for her infidelity… to heck with his marriage vows. They had Sami ready to marry EJ as payback for Rafe “sleeping” with Nicole (or so she thought), only to, weeks later, confuse her children by marrying Rafe. And now they are having EJ marry someone he doesn’t love to set the scene for his falling in love with another woman…

The fact that the writers are so cavalier about the promises two people make at the altar is not only offensive, it is a testament to how inept the writers are. They use infidelity in marriage as “faux angst” because they can’t create real angst for their characters. Just this Friday, Bo said to Hope , in a most “manly” fashion, “let’s go home” after the scales fell from their eyes; and Bo decided his year-long, adulterous relationship with Carly was a mistake; and Hope decided she was not so angry with Bo after all and perhaps Chiara deserved to have her family intact.. What made my jaw drop was the fact that the writers used such a classic phrase in such an inappropriate way… But Day’s writers are masters of the inappropriate.

Thus, I suggest that there are no couples that meet your initial criteria on Days because Days doesn’t believe in love, marriage, fidelity, romance, happiness or forever after… They believe in lust, adultery, meaningless promises, perpetual triangles and musical beds… But in a world other than Days, I would definitely say EJ and Sami would have every other couple beat by light years… JMO

I want EJ and Sami to finally be given a real chance. I have never been so in love with a couple before and find it maddening that TPTB are totally blind to the gold they have in these two. The chemistry meter is off the charts and unfortunately makes any other pairing seem pathetically bland by comparison.

Jennifer

I say bring on Ej and Taylor. Ej needs a woman in his life that isnt like Sami or Nicole. Ej and Taylor forever. I liked what I have already seen between them. Bring on more Ejaylor.

Keep Sami and Nicole away from Ej.

Put Brady and Nicole back together. Keep Sami with Rafe.

maej26

SAMI and EJ deserve to finally be together and happy.

I would love to see Chad and Will, their chemistry is off the charts hot! Not to mention, how perfect would it be to have another DiMera/Brady “forbidden love” story?!?!

Nathan and Melanie should find their way back to each other and preferably with Mark Hapka! Molly and Mark were made for those roles.

Brady and Nicole are meant to be.

I am loving the Stefano/Kate & Victor/Maggie pairings. They are perfect matches for each other.

Cleaver

I’m with maej26! EJ and Sami all the way! And I’m rooting like mad for Chad and Will. TPTB continue to waste chemistry. Go EJAMI, CHILL AND BRICOLE!

Days’ writers can turn anything into a plot point…

Next to Sami and EJ’s unbridled potential… I like Maggie and Victor… 🙂

I’m rooting for Victor and Maggie and EJ and Taylor.

EJ and Sami. I can’t believe what the writers have done to EJ so that Taylor can come in and humanize him when we’ve already seen that happen with Sami.

Stefano and Kate. I never thought of those two together but they work.

Bo and Hope never should have been broken up so they’d have something to do with Carly.

Brady and Nicole and Victor and Maggie are also on the list.

Leslie

Sami & EJ, Nathan & Melanie, Sami & EJ, Chloe & Phillip, Sami and EJ. Did I mention Sami & EJ? Sami & EJ – I will accept no substitutes!!

Sami and the real Rafe and Bo and Hope. I want my SAFE back. Not liking this fake rafe coming into Sami’s life.
There is only one SAFE and that is Sami and Rafe(the real one)

Actually I prefer FAKERafe, he has a little bit more life to him (for as far as GG’s acting abilities will allow) . Let the REALRafe rot away in his jailcell. Good riddance!

I want to see EJ and Sami back together. I am not excited about Taylor with EJ. It seems false and too juvenile for me. EJAMI share children and need to be together rasing them. Its time for Sami to recognize that she has no children with Rafe and to stop making him the father figure when her children already have fathers. Rafe has made Sami a boring character something I never thought possible. Bring back the romance and excitement that is EJAMI.

annie

if you look up the words chemistry, magic, riveting, compelling, sizzling, love you will find EJAMI. They have it why try and force something dead on viewers when you struck gold with James and Ali. give them a real chance Corday. Also love Brady and Nicole, Daniel and Chloe, Kate and Stefano and Maggie and Victor. am happy with either bope or Carbo but first and foremost give us EJami and soon please.

The couple I would love to see the only couple that I have invested so much of myself in, the only couple I found mesmerizing……EJ and Sami….aww the possibilities.

LouBlue

EJ and Sami all the way baby. 😀 I want them returned to their former glory – before Dena Higley and crew got their grubby hands on them and tried to destroy them utterly. The chemistry between the two actors make any other attempted pairings an insult to my intelligence. The fact that EJami have never been given any kind of serious attempt is the elephant in the room of every other relationship they have and it is bloody distracting! I’m tired of the writers manipulating this viewer. Instead of writing strong couples they simply nobble other pairings to make them unrootable for (yes I’m aware that isn’t a word but these writers are bucking for it to become one). I’m gritting my teeth against this latest ‘great’ romance KC says he has planned for EJ. It will no doubt be so over the top and forced as they beat us around the head and command us to ‘feel the chemistry’ between this new pairing, just as they did with Sami’s latest pairing. I’m sick of being told how I am going to feel about every new pairing and who I should root for. Sami’s latest pairing is a perfect example of having something shoved down your throat over and over again with OTT writing and vilifying everyone else to support it. It’s lazy, sloppy writing and I’m expecting more of the same for this latest ‘wonder pairing’ of KC’s. God give me strength! Watching the manipulative writing of turning EJ into a monster just so KC’s latest bright idea can ‘save’ him is turning me right off. It is so obvious what the writers are trying to do and it is very hard to remain open to a pairing when you are being backed up against a wall from the very start. It’s hard to remain open minded when we’ve had three years of these writers and we all know what passes for ‘romance’ with these guys – cheesy, puerile or sexing each other up endlessly. There is never any kind of story written around these pairings and the only ones that have a shot are ones with history from previous writing teams like EJami, Bope and Carbo. If you’re looking for these writers to create a story from scratch between characters that you can get lost in and fall in love with then you should know by now, you’re going to be waiting a looonnnnggg time. Besides, what does it matter to root for anyone because at the drop of a hat they will reinvent the characters, drop s/l’s and change history to suit their latest plot point. I can’t get to know these characters because they turn on a dime without any explanation so why should I care about who they are with? But I do care about EJ and Sami because of what they were under a different creative team and the way Ali and James just come to life around each other. So for me… Read more »

You said what I wanted to say but I didn’t have the words.

I am so turned off by what these writers and they’re uninspired writing I’ve turned DAYS off.

You said it all so eloquently I would like to see EJAMI given a chance. The trouble with theses writers imo is nothing is ever resolved The shooting Johnny’s cancer what about the family dealing with the chemo the doctors said he would need. EJAMI should be together dealing with issues not sexing it up These writers have done all they can to destroy EJAMI but because of the on screen chemistry between JS & AS all other pairings fail. For now I have tuned out because there is no story I am interested in and I will not give KC & Company my ratings

I agree with everything you said, Lou!! The writers need to drink some caffiene, stop meditating and do some REAL writing.( BTW: I feel that Taylor is TOO young for EJ…she seems more suited to Phillip or Will or Nathan or something. But EJ? I don’t think so. It sort of creeps me out a little.)
I agree with you abut TPTB turning EJ into a monster over the last couple of years. I remember when Sami was trying to be a “good Brady” but had this tough, though somewhat evil side to her and EJ tried to be a “evil Dimera” but had this good side to him. THAT WAS POWERFUL!! What the HELL is going on over there? KC get a clue!

Jill

Sami and EJ! Give them a chance already! ( I would like the writers to learn how to write a romantic story, first, however!)

Only EJAMI for me ! 🙂 Just can’t beat the chemistry. An EJAMI romance is what I want.

Suzy

Beyond a doubt EJ and Sami is what I want to see. The dynamic pairing of James and Alison have the most chemistry than any other couple on this show just wish that TPTB would quit being so biased in their own interpretation of the story lines.

Give EJ and Sami a chance, something that TPTB have NEVER done!! Michael what are they afraid of in this joining?

NyC

EJ and Taylor! It’s time for EJ to be in a real relationship for a change. Sami has broken his heart too many times and Nicole betrayed him in the worst possible way. EJ needs a fresh start with someone who will love him unconditionally, and I’m hoping that Taylor will be that person!

zarine

The only reason I started watching this show again was for Ejami…the most chemistry any couple on daytime has ever had would be JS & AS portrayal of EJ & Sami. I stopped watching in September and will NOT return unless they are paired with one another. I can’t stand to see Sami with thsat loser and definitely am disgusted that EJ would go back to that HO! I now watch Y & R and understand why it is number one!

JSFan4Life
JSFan4Life

I am wanting someone new with EJ. It’s just something I’ve wanted for him for some time. I’ve seen their meeting and the clip for Monday’s show. I liked what I’ve seen so far with EJ and Taylor so my vote would have to go to them. I also like Stefano/Kate, Victor/Maggie, Brady/Nicole, and Melanie/Nathan.

JSFan4Life

I forgot to add I like Bope as well.

Sami and EJ…no one matches their chemistry, Bope, Victor & Maggie….Nicole and Brady, Chloe and Phillip and Stefano and kate.

Maybe they should try Rafe and Taylor together since both of them are too good to be true.

You know, I’m actually looking forward to NL and GG having a scene together. I have a feeling they would have chemistry together and I’m not just saying that as an EJami fan, I really think Rafe and Taylor could work. Besides, they are on the same level just as EJami, Bricole, Magic and State are on the same level.

Romance.. who knew it still exsisted in daytime..

I’m definitely rooting for EJ/Taylor. EJaylor has an exciting new beginning and the possibilities are numerous. I appreciate that EJ is being given a lady that truly reciprocates and has mutual feelings for him and from the get go no less. For the most part, I have yet to see that for EJ until now. Taylor is a totally worthy woman for EJ. And I believe can and will shine like the romantic lead that I know he can be just given the chance. I am sick of always seeing such absolute dysfunction and domestic violence in regards to EJ/Sami and on some level a lot of other characters. One half of a couple truly wanting the other one dead is a deal breaker for me. That’s not love or romantic in the slightest. EJaylor has the potential for real romance and I can’t wait to see what tptb have in store for them. Bring it on!

I’m also pulling for Philip/Chloe, at least while we can. And Stefano/Kate, Victor/Maggie.

Vicky

SAFE all the way! I’m so fed up with the angst that are thrown at them all the time. I want TPTB to give them a chance to be happy. Enough of the lies and manipulations of one evil interloper!

SAMI and RAFE sizzle on my screen. They are the new super couple on DOOL!!!

GO SAFE!!

Rene

Looking forward to seeing what happens between EJ & Taylor!

Not at all happy with the bland tepid couples in salem. Stefano and Kate are the only couple in the promo that I think truly love each other.

EJ and Taylor is almost laughable. She’s such a goody goody and he’s just too complex a man for this type of romance. He and Nicole were a bit interesting when they were co-habitating and sniping at each other for the children. Now Nicole is well on her way to being clingy with him.

Sami and Rafe bore more to tears. Rafe 1 or Rafe 2 – it doesn’t matter. This chemistryless couple has gone on too long.

Personally I prefer Carly and Bo though I do respect the Bo/Hope fans and that couple’s place in DAYS history. I hope they don’t commit to which way to go. I hope they write for the individual characters first – all three actors deserve a good story.

And I do want EJ and Sami to reunite and be the true power couple in Salem. They are sexy and fascinating. I miss scheming smart sassy Sami who doesn’t worship any man including EJ. I want her to finally let herself feel for Stefano’s son what she always had denied. I like that they challenge each other – God I miss them.

So I’m really very disappointed in the current couplings on DAYS.

I agree, it doesn’t matter which Rafe Sami is with both pairings are boring and awkward. I use to love watching Sami Brady but anymore she is dependant on Rafe, needy, whiny, and clingly. Her and Ej were exciting and sexy, I would love to see them back together. More importantly, she was strong and Independant. Ej is the one that truely accepted the real Sami Brady.

Sheree
Sheree

Ej and Samantha as Ejami pure gold still cannot understand why this show has to brow beat us, why can’t they just write a powerful compelling lovestory for Ejami?? I feel like this show is going out of it’s way to bully Ejamis just for being passionate about this show and our couple who we saw the magic in them and it wasn’t pre-created in any way, contrived we saw the special gift to entertain with love, humour, passion, and family. Please write them a wonderful lovestory, Jamison bring that magic to our screens like no other as Ejami their intimacy gets better and better…it is a once in a lifetime gift and this show should be capitalizing on it not exploiting it. Bring on the magic of Ejami.

Other couples, are Will and Chad – I think it would be really nice to have a controversial relationship like this, they do have amazing chemistry and it would really bring this soap out of the dark ages and into something fresh and modern of the people today who watch this show.

My 2nd fav couple was actually Bricole, I started to actually like Nicole when her and Brady boozed in bed, I like her best with him. There is more humour, fun, and hot romance. Eric who plays Brady is doing an amazing job, he really has given Brady charisma and brooding quality that just compliments Nicole’s quirkiness.

3rd couple is State, I love how Kate and Stefano have such strong dynamics together much like Ejami…it brings a delicous powerfulness in their relationship that is exciting, passionate and a wonderful intimacy.

4th couple which is not possible anymore since poor Mark got the boot, but I saw some potential in him and Melanie. I find they make her too old when she is with Phillip, I like her being young, bubbly, and full of humour. Mark really was developing his character Nathan, but he dared to ask for more storyline and now he is out.

5th couple Viv and Gus – I really enjoy Viv, she is totally crazy but her humour is awesome and something this show is desperately lacking. It is a pity they don’t utalize Louise Sorel better, she is an amazing actress who can carry any scene, where as other actors are getting way too much screen time and cannot carry their own scenes, I won’t dare to mention names!!

Powermouse aka Rebecca
Powermouse aka Rebecca

I think EJ should move on from Sami. I like Taylor. She is so bubbly and sweet!! I defintiely want to see EJ and Taylor. I am a former ejami fan. Ejami is all about rape, violence, and abuse. Ejaylor will bring true romance!!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

Photo: JPI

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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.

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.
