What a historic, emotional, and proud day to be an American and for the LGBT community who fought the fight and ultimately prevailed when Friday the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage equality in a 5 to 4 vote.  Now same-sex couples can get married in all 50 states of our nation and have the same legal rights as heterosexual couples.

On NBC’s Days of our Lives, three actors portray gay characters: Freddie Smith (Sonny), Guy Wilson (Will) and Christopher Sean (Paul).  While daytime fans have watched their trials and tribulations on-screen, including a daytime drama landmark gay wedding between two central male characters back in 2014, Friday was cause for celebration for those who have told this story for an under-presented segment of the population on the daytime television landscape.

On-Air On-Soaps got the reactions this evening from Freddie, Guy and Christopher on the Supreme Court’s ruling. Freddie Smith related: “Today is such a great day. Marriage Equality for all!”  Guy Wilson shared: “The Supreme Court’s ruling today serves to confirm what we have all already known to be true: that love always wins.”   Christopher Sean stated,  “What an amazing day for love and acceptance. I’m so honored to be part of the movement towards marriage equality. I guess the saying holds true, love conquers all. #LOVEWINS”

As people in the LGBT community celebrate tonight, it’s the words from Justice Anthony  M. Kennedy and what he wrote for the majority in this historic decision that is profound and so meaningful:  “No longer may this liberty be denied. No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.  As some of these petitioners in these cases demonstrates, marriage embodies a love that can endure beyond death.  It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves.  Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilizations oldest institutions.  They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law.  The Constitution grants them that right.  The judgement for the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed.   It is so ordered.”

So, what did you think of Freddie, Guy, and Christopher sentiments on the Supreme Court’s ruling and marriage equality?  Share your thoughts below on on this historic day.

It’s about time..
I’m a straight woman and I believe everybody has a right to love and happiness..

The Declaration specifically mentions three rights which human beings possess by birth–
Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. No one may rightfully deny us these things.
(our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws)

CONGRATS for the win !
It is signed, sealed and delivered …

I recently watched a show of “the View” AND … guest actor… was on: from, “the big bang Theory” Jim Parsons he reiterated.. that he is of the mindset: that after “living” so long… with the ideal that marriage may not be in our lifetime… that it’s OK… because.. we know love like anyone else… I truly have taken this stance what makes me happy… and cry … is that the younger generations plus… will not have that road less traveled… will bridge, make inroads, that much quickly… valiantly march .. because tolerance pissed me off “thank You” SCOTUS :… Read more »

I find it odd that actors playing gay soap characters would be asked how they feel without asking out and proud gay actors their thoughts. Both CBS soaps have many gay actors who could shed more light on this momentous moment.

The guys said what most people think. Love is love and everyone should have the same right to marry. I am so happy for all my friends who can now marry the man/ or the woman they love. I saw a couple get married today who have been together for 50 yrs waiting for the right thing to be done! Congrats to all 🙂

Love wins indeed! But does it really bother you so much to mention Chandler Massey? Ever? The WilSon story now is a story of deceit, cheating and frustration. Where is the love?

CeeCee

Yeah! How true! We can still hold that love in our hearts, regardless. Very intuitive of you, Mo. I respect that. Peace.

It’s hard to believe that it’s taken this time for love equality. Everyone deserves to have love, feel love, and give love. I agree, love is love-and if you care for, love, respect, and treat someone well-you should openly and willingly be able to accept and show love. It’s wonderful news and it amazes me that it’s taken this long (2015) for something so historic to take place!

I am watching Friday’s episode of DOOL, please-send Guy Wilson and the character of Will Horton to Chicago on assignment and out of Salem-for good. I can not stomach his portrayal or the character of Will Horton.

Right, dmr. It has now been how long? Everything about this guy irritates me. Even his gestures. That thing he does with his forehead drives me up the wall…know what I mean? The writers do not even try to redeem him. To make us like him. Instead, they are turning him into a cheating, manipulating, lying little Yenta. I think I have been spoiled by Chandler…no other can replace him, not even the original Will. He is so beautiful….eye-candy, indeed. I sound shallow, but, I don’t care….his acting was a lot more believable than this guy’s. I need to lighten… Read more »

I hate who they have turned our wonderful loving , sometimes not the best decision maker (hiding the fact he was Ari’s dad), faithful Will into a lying, cheating, back stabbing, take no blame for all he has done, whiny little brat.

Agreed CeeCee – we were spoiled with Chandler and any replacement couldn’t match up. Especially since Chandler shouldn’t have been replaced. At least not until his contract was over. Never should they have Sonny marry a total stranger. Coz that’s what the sudden recast turned into. Totally unbelievable. Keeping GW on the show and knowing that viewers keep saying he has no talent, isn’t good for his career. It’s sad to know that the creators pretend everything is fine and fans still watch. The only ones still watching clearly don’t care about how this once meaningful and topical storyline has… Read more »

“There comes a time when silence is betrayal”- Martin Luther King Congratulations to ALL that have refused to be silent, to fight for their rights for so many, many years. As a straight women and American, I have actually been embarrassed for longer than I can remember that many states did now allow gay marriage. This is 2015 & we are the #1 country in the world. So many of our laws don’t match the times & motto of our constitution. What amazes me is the number of vocal people on social media screaming blasphemy, quoting bible verses. This ruling… Read more »

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?
