Last night on a special livestream conversation on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Days of our Lives stars: James Reynolds (Abe), Kim Coles (Whitley) and Terrell Ransom Jr. (Jerry and ex-Theo) participated in a lively hour+ deep dive into their current storyline.

Fans watching the Peacock streaming soap opera have really had to follow along and look for the clues at this complex storyline that is at once … a mix of camp, an amnesia storyline told with a twist, a soap within a soap, and has some major stunt casting.

In story, Nurse Whitley King kidnapped Abe and has been keeping him in an “Annie Wilkes in the movie ‘Misery” type of setting. As her lies keep catching up with her, she has been sedating and drugging Abe, once he starts to get a sense that something is wrong with this woman who says she is his wife, Paulina.

Meanwhile, viewers have sensed that Whitley’s problem stems from a backstory with Paulina.  Add to the mix, Whitley blackmailing actor Jerry Prentiss to pretend to be Abe’s son, Theo Carver, and things become even more complicated.  However, now Jerry feels bad for what he has done and informs Abe’s adopted daughter, Lani (Sal Stowers) of the situation, and the action picks up on Thursday and Friday’s episode of DAYS.

During the livestream, Kim teased what could be causing Whitley’s behavior and her motives: “I can’t tell you yet, but she’s not a bad person, in fact, there’s a whole scene where Eli (Lamon Archey) goes, ‘She’s got a good record, she’s a good nurse and well-liked.’ There’s a psychotic break. There’s something that happened that caused her to have this ‘break’ and she saw this opportunity when this wonderful, sweet man that she already admires, looked at her and said, “You’re my wife, Paulina.” And she goes, “Yes!, I am your wife. Come, come with me.” I don’t think she is bad person, but she had this ‘break’ and she wanted to protect him.”

When finding out the role he would be playing on his return to Days of our Lives, since he played the childhood Theo from 2008-2015, Terrell Ransom Jr. shared, “I was told there’s this character Jerry. He’s in a soap opera and he’s also going to be ‘playing’ Theo.  Now, I’m like, ‘I’m confused, but I’m ready. I’m ready for this.’ I get one of the scripts and I’m reading through it and I’m like, ‘Wow! This is going to be fun.’ It was so confusing, and up until I got to set I still didn’t know what was really going on, but I had a little inkling. So,it was really fun to see the story unravel before my eyes.”

The soap within a soap is the kitschy Body and Soul which Abe had now become addicted to in order to keep him company and to pass the time while he is locked up by Whitley. Reynolds said of Abe’s feelings on the show:  “Watching the soap opera becomes life to him and Whitley has locked him in her place. He can’t walk very well, but he can walk a little bit. As with so many fans, this is his lifeline. He doesn’t want it in the beginning, but Whitley just pursues him to watch this show and he enjoys it.”


Check out more of what James, Kim, and Terrell revealed on this outlandish storyline and more in their interview below.

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Alex is Revealed to Be Victor’s Son; How Do You Feel About the Revelation?

By now, Days of our Lives fans have figured out that Alex Kiriakis (Rob Scott Wilson) will be revealed as Victor’s (the late John Aniston) son, not Justin’s (Wally Kurth), on upcoming episodes of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

On Friday’s cliffhanger, after Justin and Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) open the contents from Victor’s briefcase located in Greece, they are stunned to see a brand new will. But, what will stun them even more is that Justin will learn that Alex is not his biological son. In addition, the latest promo for next week’s DAYS, also shows an emotional Justin telling Alex he is not his father.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, Rob Scott Wilson shares on the Kiriakis family bombshell: “It’s such a huge plot twist. Obviously, it’s going to change the dynamic within the family and the power within the business.”

Wilson added on the key scene where Justin and Maggie just found out Victor had a ‘secret’ son: “Justin is definitely freaking out. It’s like he’s just seen a ghost. He wasn’t prepared to read this and then have Alex walk in on it.”

After the revelation, Rob expressed how the relationship between Alex and Justin will never be the same: “It’s like a goodbye to the relationship that we built and established in not too long of a time. It was really heartfelt.”

There will be much more to this story, as Alex tries to process how Victor lied to him while he was alive, and never told him he was his son.

Check out the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, are you happy or unhappy that Alex is turning out to be the biological son of Victor Kiriakis? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
