Tomorrow on the Friday, November 21st episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, Molly Burnett finally makes her on-screen re-emergence as trouble-always-seems-to-find-her Melanie Jonas!

Burnett exited the Salem canvas when she made the decision to leave the daytime drama after four years in 2012.  In story, Melanie left for Europe after that disaster of a twisted relationship mess between her, Chad, and Gabi.  Now, Melanie shows up back in Salem!  But, what brings her to town? Clearly, she will get a chance to catch-up with dad, Daniel (Shawn Christian) and little Parker, Grandma Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) and best friend Brady (Eric Martsolf), but there is something more going down!

As we know and has been previewed:  There is a secret that Melanie is harboring, and we have heard the rumors that she also will have a romantic interest in Salem ,,, and she will also have a potential new friend, perhaps  the audience doesn’t know about?  So many questions!

To try to eek out some answers and tease Melanie’s homecoming, On-Air On-Soaps sat down for this video interview with the beloved Burnett to try to get her to spill the beans! You will have to watch to see how we did! One thing is for certain, with an actress as unique and dynamic, if a story that contains both romance and intrigue are written right, Molly will play it for all it’s worth and then some.

Now after the jump, watch On-Air On-Soaps one-on-one interview with Molly Burnett! Then weigh-in: what do you think Melanie’s secret is?  Who will be her love interest?  What do you think of her friend, if that holds true? Are you glad Molly is back on DAYS?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Haven’t always been into the Melanie character because of who they’ve had her working with (liked her more early on in the Max/Chelsea/Nick orbit) but there’s no denying that Molly Burnett herself is a delight – she has a smile that is infectious. I know the show will be relying on her heavily – best of luck to her this go-around.

Welcome back Molly Burnett, I have missed Molly so much. She is a wonderful actress and I love her smile. Very friendly lady. Melanie is a fire cracker, Molly has great chemistry with Suzanne Rogers and Shawn Christian. Molly Burnett is so pretty and she is 26 years old. When Molly decided to leave Days Of Our Lives in 2012, I was devasted. But I am so happy that she is back, where she belongs. Also Melissa Archer cannot wait to see her as Serena.

Watched this week’s episodes last night in the background while doing laundry and texting, haha. Hate to say it-but I find the show boring now. I can’t stand Theresa. Eve and JJ keep having the same conversation over and over. Paige is boring. Daniel being the hero has grown old. Jordan has zero chemistry with everyone. I may take a break and tune back in when Eileen Davidson returns next year. I did that a while back. Honestly, I feel the same way about General Hospital…

The pace of Days is very slow. The pace of GH (while still faster than Days) has slowed considerably over the last couple months.

I agree with others that the PACE of Days of our Lives is reeeealllly sloooow….good grief get on with it already. The character of Paige is about as interesting as a box of Kleenex. I was cheering JJ on when he finally turned on Eve and shouted “I don’t HAVE to do anything you say!” (or however he phrased it) and I thought, yeah, there you go, time to grow a pair and tell that witch to butt out. That storyline is preposterous anyway, JJ looks like a Drug store Delivery boy and Eve looks like she should be buying… Read more »

So happy to see Mel back!! If they only could bring back Nathan, I would be thrilled! Then we could finally have the romance between them that should’ve always been. 🙂

I hope Melanie’s love interest is JJ! That would be a perfect fit! JJ likes older women! Jennifer and Daniel are on the outs. This will give Dannifer something else to overcome. It will be great! My second choice of a love interest for Melanie is Beady! Would love to see Melanie and Theresa go head to head over Brady! Then when Kristen comes back she will have to face two of them! That would be a HOOT! Either of these story lines would be great! Maybe the writers could even do both! Have a Brady-Melanie-JJ triangle with all of… Read more »

So happy Melanie is back and is with her soulmate Brady. Honestly, I feel it is up to Eric Martsoff and Molly Burnett to save Days of our Lives! They always had the “it” factor and now with EJ and Sami gone, they will be the next super couple of Days. Lots of drama to come, but with the new writers, I know this couple can stay the course!

REPORT: Days of our Lives Renewal Update: Sony and NBC In Talks, Insiders Optimistic While Show Pauses Production

Every year around this time, Days of our Lives renewal has been its own cliffhanger.  With the show taping episodes so far in advance and wrapping their current season, the series paused production and went dark on April 16th, according to TV Line.

Now comes the waiting game and according to a report from Deadline on Wednesday, NBC and Sony are continuing to be in talks to bring the series back for its 57th season. While no one from any camp is officially commenting on the negotiations, their sources are reporting that things do look optimistic, as of now.

The report indicates that in anticipation of a renewal, the producers have been making if-come deals with key cast members in the past few weeks and the writing team is said to be hard at work on potential scripts for the new season.

In the past, DAYS’ renewal had taken several months to pan out, because of how the show’s distributor Sony Pictures Television has to adjust its business model to continue the show without going in the red.

Even though over the years DAYS had declined in the linear ratings, there appears to be a commitment by the studio and NBC to find ways to keep it on the air.

So, are you hopeful that DAYS will survive yet another negotiation for renewal? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: What Did You Think of the Reveal of Who Killed Charlie?

“Sorry Charlie!” Those were the clever words said by the killer of the evil Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) on Days of our Lives.  But evil kinda knows evil, and thus viewers learned in a reveal just who was the culprit.

DAYS fans begin to get to the truth when on Monday’s episode, while under hypnosis from Marlena (Deidre Hall), John (Drake Hogestyn) recalls opening the door to the apartment in time to see someone in a red coat with a hood (very ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ but with a fashion flare) shoot Charlie.

When “Doc” brings John out of his hypnotic state, she asks him who fired the gun?  John is horrified as he reveals it was their daughter, Belle! (Martha Madison). John shares that Belle was wearing the coat they gave her for Valentine’s Day.  A shocked John utters, “My God, Doc. Our little girl blew that punk away.”  However, Marlena refuses and does not believe Belle would shoot and kill Charlie, let alone anyone.

Jan (Heather Lindell) shows up at Marlena’s office and tells John and Marlena she is not going to be locked up, because of the deal she made for her freedom. Then, we see Jan get more inquisitive into what John and Marlena were discussing before she walked in on them.  They leave to go talk to Belle to get answers, while Jan sneaks back into the office and into Marlena’s drawer to retrieve the recording device to find out exactly what John and Marlena were talking about.

It is there when Jan is alone that viewers learn what happened the night of Charlie’s death. Jan is listening to the recording of John telling Marlena that Belle shot Charlie, but that he didn’t see Belle’s face because she was wearing the red coat.

Next, Jan flashes back to Charlie saying, “Don’t shoot,” and then firing a gunshot as Charlie falls to the ground.  We see the visual of the face of the person in the red coat and it’s Jan!  Next, Jan smirks and says, “Sorry, Charlie.”

So it seems Jan Spears has an ultimate revenge plot to rid Belle once and for all and have her locked behind bars.  How long will it be before the other Salemites catch on that Jan is the murderer?

So, were you happy to see it was Jan who was the one who killed Charlie? Did you suspect it was her? Share your thoughts in the comment section.  But first, watch the moment the killer is revealed below.
