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!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
