Sad news to report this morning, Days of our Lives and soap fans beloved, Alice Horton the matriarch of the Horton clan, played by the incomparable Frances Reid has died.   While details of her passing are still surfacing, we have learned that Frances passed away on Febraury 3rd in Wichita Falls, Texas.  The actress was 95.   While Frances had seldom seen  little to no  air-time over the last several years because of her failing health, DAYS always kept her spirit and her importance throughout family storylines even in her absence, as recent as the on-screen death of her son, Mickey Horton. Frances’s castmates tweeted the news, last evening,  which started with her co-stars, Alison Sweeney (Sami) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), and  later former DAYS mainstay, Deidre Hall.

Deidre Hall (@DeidreHall) “Greg Meng called me this morning to tell me of the loss of our darling Frances Reid. She was loved, revered, and will be remembered.” Alison Sweeney (@Ali_Sweeney) “I’m so sad to hear the news about Frances Reid. She was a truly talented actress & and we are all lucky & proud to have known her. RIP” Nadia Bjorlin @RealNadiaB “Rest in peace Frances Reid (Alice Horton). She was a great lady whom I feel honored to have known..the heart and soul of Days of our Lives.” 

Reid played Alice Horton from the shows beginnings in 1965.  She was paired with MacDonald Carey as Tom Horton, and together they were the morale center and backbone of the people in Salem.  After Carey’s passing, Alice continued being the voice of reason to her family and friends.  Frances Reid received a  Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.    Our Video of the Day will rotate throughout the today, to honor Frances and her amazing mark and legendary she has made in daytime.  

Of all the many heartfelt relationship’s on DAYS it was that of Bo Brady and Mrs. H., which touched many.  Who can forget there legendary donut scenes?  And who can forget Alice and her donuts, period.  Or, the annual Horton Christmas gathering, and Alice counseling grand-daughter, Hope Williams Brady.   So many memories that Frances has left to us.  Our thoughts, and prayers are with Reid’s family, friends and colleagues today.   Here’s to you Frances for years of enjoyment you brought to all of those who watched daytime.   You shall be missed!

Frances Reid was a great actress; I’ve watched Days of our Lives for about 10 or so years and she was great; especially when Alice (Frances Reidd) made her doughnuts. She will be sadly missed by her fans; especially those who have seen her on since the first show appeared in 1965…God rest her soul..Their will never be another Alice Horton like her in the world. She is what made the show interesting!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
