DAYS New Summer Promo Reveals The Returns of Jay Kenneth Johnson and Louise Sorel

Photo: JPI

Exciting new storylines, weddings and some bombshell returns will liven up Salem during the summer months according to the new promo for Days of our Lives released over the weekend.

Look for the return of Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan), the debut of Gwen (Emily O’Brien), and the SORAS’d Allie Horton, plus some more familiar faces that people have missed in town.

Back in action will be Jay Kenneth Johnson as Phillip Kiriakis, Louise Sorel resuming her signature role of Vivian Alamain, Bryan Dattilo as Lucas Horton and the one and only Alison Sweeney as Sami.

Then look out for four weddings from Ben and Ciara,  Eric and Nicole, Kayla and Justin, Eli and Lani, but who will actually say their “I-do’s”?

It’s a jam-packed summer of original episodes from DAYS; the only soap still delivering new installments to its fans during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Check out the preview below.  Then let us  know, who are you most excited about seeing back on the canvas via the comment section!

It is nice to see familiar faces, such as Louise Sorel (who is making her overdue return as Vivian Alamain), Alison Sweeney and Bryan Dattilo. And while I know Jay Kenneth Johnson has had the fanfare for returning to the role of Philip, and I am sure it will be fun to see him in it, I was also hoping to potentially see the return of John-Paul Lavoisier in the role, or even a different actor (a-la Jacob Young [Rick, B&B; ex-JR, AMC et al]). Let’s hope the summer months lives up to the expectations. Also, granted, the post-production still… Read more »

So the pregnant teenage girl is SORAS’d Allie?

Momo

I don’t think so. I hope not. I don’t think Allie would give her child away. Sami and Kate wouldn’t allow it. Why is Nicole in the delivery room?

By the looks of the extended promo, Sami and Nicole get into a right because Allie wants to give her baby to Uncle Eric and Nicole, but in the end Wilson will be the parents. Will and Sonny will be dad’s to Will’s Nephew or Niece. Or Allie could have twins that are separated, one going with Eric and Nicole, the other going to Will and Sonny.

I don’t like that story. And why age Allie so much???

I agree—-same old same old. I wish storylines would break away from giving away babies; switching babies; babies dying!! Uffa!!
Another irritant for me is Sarah’s hair—-such weird styles she sports—-same “do” as my six-year-old.
Some things never change. It may seem banal, comparatively speaking; ….what can I say? Give the girl some “adult” flair!!

I did not like Sarah’s hair today (June 2). Other than today, I think it’s been okay.

Hi Celia
Its been a while. Hope all is well with you and your family. I agree with you on both counts, the baby thing and Sarah’s hair. Speaking of hair, Maggie has kept her hair colored and looking pretty nice, during her prison stint. Wonder if she will buy all of her husband’s reasons and excuses for what he’s done as easily as she has Xander’s.

Hi, Miss V, Good to hear from you……glad all is well. I moved into my new home a couple of weeks ago—-so, between home-schooling and getting this place together takes up all of my time. I do have help, but I am very “particular”…. everything needs my touch. LOL. Yes, Maggie has always had beautiful hair—full with a rich texture. Not many women can pride themselves for having such a gorgeously cascading head of hair, even in youth!! Maggie loves Victor—she has forgiven him before, but this is different—-too personal; involving her grandchild and daughter—too painful to bear. Yet, it… Read more »

Hi Celia Glad things are well with you, though hectic. You are right though I never thought about the jail thing with Victor and Xander. There wouldn’t be as much drama as with this payback of Brady’s though. He is getting on my nerves more so lately, than usual.Its too bad he didn’t spend as much energy keeping his new found daughter with him instead of sending her off with mommy dearest. Yes, it was horrible what Victor and Xander did, but Kristen never thought twice about tearing babies out of there mother’s bellies, just because she wanted one. I… Read more »

@Violet! Hello again, lovely lady!…It’s been awhile! Glad to read that you are hanging in there despite the increasing heat and protests/riots in your area…for the record, I’m a fan of neither!!!! (Despite having very strong political convictions, I don’t have a militant soul..I vote by ballot and bank checks…that’s it!!!!) But I did mean to mention that I was just thinking of you!!!! In addition to enjoying a lot of flashback posts regarding our favorite old soaps here at MFTV, I’ve also indulged in a few vintage Dame Maggie movies over the past few days, and they were such… Read more »

Well, hi Shay! So nice to hear from you again. Glad you have been enjoying our beloved Dame Maggie. I am still waiting for a new season of Doc Martin. Did you by any chance ever see a series called A Place To Call Home. I enjoyed that so much, and was so let down when it ended. As for the soaps, I have been more or less enjoying The Nurse’s Ball on GH. I just record so I can just watch the good stuff.I do watch Days, but it has been getting on my nerves and Iam not interested… Read more »

I’ve missed our discussions too, Violet, but it’s simply impossible not to go off-topic with you!!! I especially roared at your mention of the “good doctor” since we were taken to task over him the last time he was brought up in conversation…LOL!!! As for the Aussie APTCH, oh my, yes! I watched it all the way through, although I preferred the earlier seasons more than the latter ones, but thought the show finale was wrapped up pretty well in terms of all the characters..I really loved Old Lady Bligh when she was in her battle axe mode, considered Anna… Read more »

Hi Shay I almost didn’t wait for your reply. I am so excited. I found this movie, 2015, set in 1973 London with Maggie Smith, called the Lady In The Van. A homeless woman who takes up residence in a man’s driveway for 15 years. Is your mouth watering yet, or perhaps you’ve already seen it? I recorded it last night, so I cant wait. I hope Michael can overlook our off topic chat, but the truth is , there aren’t any soap topics these days of interest. At my age I hope I can outlast this craziness. Talk to… Read more »

Hello! Been there, done that, Vi! Watched this movie based upon real-life people when it was first released! Needless to add, there’s another EXCELLENT performance by our beloved Dame Maggie! I loved her as “The Old Lady in the Van!” Alex Jennings was also superb as playwright, Alan Bennett…in fact, these two absolutely spectacular actors made this story come alive!!! I could go on with many more superlatives, but won’t, other than to say that even in portraying a woman who was down on her luck and living in the most basic, horrible of circumstances—i.e., facing an existence which is… Read more »

LOL, Miss V—-Brady? I was never a fan. TPTB need to have him act his age. He’s the perpetual child—every soap has one. He turns me right OFF!! This Kristen is inconsequential , as far as I’m concerned. Now, if we were talking about Eileen Davidson? Well, Kristen’s peccadillos pale in comparison to her persona—Simpatica!! Thankfully, I don’t live in the city—-My newly-built home ( love the smell of a new house) is in Nissequoque ( Long Island, NY), a small village and suburb of Smithtown. While driving into town today, I did notice quiet, peaceful protesting near the only… Read more »

All is fine on my end, too…still massively hand-washingblessed, mask-wearing and keeping to ourselves on the home front…in other , NO protesting—left or right—for this lady and mine under any circumstances!!! And speaking of ladies, what a fab femme is that Louise Sorel!!! I recall in passing her early days as crazy Vivian, but she was also sublimely sinister as “Santa Barbara’s” formidable Augusta Wainwright Lockridge,… Read more »

Hey, Shay—-so good to hear from you—-let’s count our blessings, amica cara—an upside-down world. The hypocrisy runs rampant—we cannot go anywhere without a mask; cannot hug our friends and relatives etc., That’s what we are ordered to do or not do. Hmmmm, but, the upper echelon of the opposition does whatever it pleases. People were put in jail for not following protocol ( a father playing with his chid in the park), yet the rioters and looters are shoulder to shoulder and faccia a faccia!!!!!!!!!!!! While the populace does its best dealing with Covid-19, the “unmentionables” follow a higher, God-given… Read more »

I know, I know, CeeCeeGirl! (Soooo good to hear from you!) I also remain grateful and happy to be vibrant and alive, even though law-abiding individuals like ourselves have been told we cannot attend church services, family celebrations, or observe Memorial Day/4th of July events and we simply accept that in the interests of personal and public health….yet, at the same time, throwing grand mal temper tantrums in the streets and destroying others’ property all whilst prospectively spreading a deadly disease is perfectly okay??? Upside-down world, indeed!!! You know what galls me the most? Being told that WE are the… Read more »

Melissa Reeves Has NOT Been Fired From Days of our Lives

A technical error caused a bit of a firestorm on Monday night, and a retraction early Tuesday morning when an item appeared most notably on TV Line’s partner’s feed, Yahoo News, that had a headline stating that Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) had been fired from Days of our Lives.

If site visitors and readers looked closely, there were actually two versions of the opening line that appeared.  One of which was noting that Reeves was apologizing for “catching heat” from co-stars and fans for backing a post by Candace Owens that was Anti-Black Lives Matter, and the other one that she was fired from the NBC soap opera.

TV Line early Monday morning issued this statement to clarify what happened and confirmed that Reeves had NOT been fired from DAYS: “Due to technical error, a story was briefly published on TVLine on Monday evening — and has since surfaced on several of our partner feeds, most notably Yahoo — that erroneously claims Days of Our Lives has fired Melissa Reeves. The story is false. Melissa Reeves has not been fired from Days of Our Lives. In the meantime, we apologize for the error.”

DAYS Wally Kurth Delivers ‘The Power Performance of the Week’

Mark our words! Next year, Days of our Lives Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) will once again be nominated for a Daytime Emmy for this week’s emotional and deeply-touching work on key episodes of the NBC daytime drama series.

As viewers saw, this was to be the happy nuptials of Justin and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), who found love again after losing the previous loves of their lives.  They were dear friends to begin with, who through a set of horrific circumstances, found comfort with one another which eventually turned to love.

Photo: JPi

Problem was; Justin overheard Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) before the ceremony discussing Steve’s (Stephen Nichols) feelings for Kayla and that he wants her back; something Kayla is unaware of.  So what will he do?  The noble thing and tell her the truth, or keep it to himself and marry her anyway?

As the Intel of what he learned weighed heavier and heavier on Justin, in the most dramatic of moments (when he was to say his “I do’s”), Justin stopped the ceremony and bared all to Kayla: that Steve wants her back and how Steve saw him propose to her and that is why he backed off.  Armed with the knowledge and that her friends and family kept it from her, Kayla does not know what to do.  Justin helps made it easy and clear for her when he questions her … if they would be standing here getting married, if Steve had told her his true feelings before Justin proposed to her?

Justin goes on to say to Kayla that maybe she has been avoiding her true feelings for Steve, because she did not want to hurt him.  Then Justin tells Kayla that he visited his late wife Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) grave, and told her that if things were different, and if she was alive they would still be married, and Kayla would be their dear, dear friend.

Photo: JPI

With seeing the look on Kayla’s eyes, Justin knows she loves Steve.  Heartbroken, but caught in an untenable situation, Justin tells Kayla he is happy for her.  Kayla wraps her arms around Justin as they both cry.  Kayla says she never wanted to hurt him, and when Wally as Justin says, “I know, honey,” it was one of the most honest and ten-hankie moments of the entire scenario.   Justin kisses her, tells the guests there will be no wedding today, and exits the Kiriakis mansion.

The emotional drama continues in the aftermath as Justin is at Kayla’s apartment boxing up all of his belongings and tears up recalling their nights together listening to jazz and cooking dinner.  Sonny (Freddie Smith) finds his dad, and tells him he did the noble thing and that time will heal all wounds, but after Sonny leaves, Justin breaks down a bit further before exiting Kayla’s for good.

And if that was not enough, Justin goes back to Adrienne’s gravesite to update her on the wedding that did not happen.   He talks to her that he understands Kayla and Steve’s deep and enduring love, which was just like theirs was.  Next, Justin thinks he is seeing Adrienne, when none other than Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) reveals she is back in Salem – talk about kicking a guy when he is down!

Photo: JPI

Throughout this entire saga, moment to moment, Kurth delivered raw, genuine, adult emotions, in a very complex adult story and relationship.   In fact, the cast and crew thought so, too!  When Wally as Justin told Kayla that he can’t marry her and the speech that followed and his exit from the mansion that followed, all those on set applauded for him.  His work was that moving.   Wally was ably assisted throughout by the outstanding work of Mary Beth Evans in these scenes.

2020, while a difficult year for everyone thus far, has been a particular great year for Kurth on Days; as over the last six months he has really had a chance to shine in this story.  So for all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV gives the “Power Performance of the Week” kudos to Wally Kurth.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.
