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!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
