Talk about a Friday cliffhanger!  You got to give props to Days of our Lives, they sure know how to put plenty of drama into familial events!  You see in Salem, whenever there is a big wedding, or a christening, and family and friends gather together, something is always about to explode, and boy did it ever!

For weeks, savvy DAYS fans have figured out that Arianna’s Christening would probably be the stage for the return of the “murdered” Nick  Fallon (Blake Berris)!

Well at the end of Friday’s episode, everyone who has been covering up his disappearance, and those who believed they had “murdered” him were in for the surprise of their lives when the church doors opened and in walked none other than a very much alive Nick!  When he comes in to the church post-Christening, he says, “Sorry, am Interrupting?”  Now, you know Nick is going to get payback! And the look of shock on Gabi (Camila Banus), Sami (Alison Sweeney), Kate (Lauren Koslow), Abigail (Kate Mansi), and EJ’s (James Scott) faces were priceless!

The entire episode was pretty spectacular filled with some hankie-filled speeches from Ari’s God parents, Abigail and Sonny (Freddie Smith), Gabi telling Will (Guy Wilson) how happy she is that they created Arianna, busy body Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) ready to pounce on Gabi at any second, everyone trying to keep Gabi from losing her grip, and then EJ using Abby’s sexual attraction to him as a way of keeping the gal from talking to Hope (Kristian Alfonso) about Nick!  Now all bets are off!

What did you think of the final moments of the episode when Nick emerged alive?  What did you think of the Friday telecast? Watch a promo for next week’s Days of our Lives after the jump!  Then, share your thoughts and what you think will happen next!

Back in November when you asked if Nick was really dead I replied– He’s alive and he will come back seeking revenge on Gabi, Kate and Sami– this is Days after all– or words that affect— Good to see Days stay true to form. I am glad Nick is back, if only to stop this covering up the murder story which was becoming quite silly.

They all looked like they needed a change of underwear…lol…I wonder if Nick…sly Nick…will act like nothing has happened…let the blackmail begin!!!(By the way…its winter…i doubt Nick was in the water for long…otherwise ya think he’d suffer from frostbite unless its not cold in Salem or the bird watcher guy managed to pull him out soon afterward…hopefully Nick keeps his mouth shut, Gabi has her breakdown, and Nick blackmails E.J., Sami, Kate and WilSon…maybe he’ll try to get custody of the baby from them!!! Also, i hope the bird watcher sticks around for a little fun of his own…maybe he’ll… Read more »

Also, i know i mentioned a possible Brady and Theresa pairing but a Nick and Theresa pairing would make much better drama with these two scheming and plotting…blackmailing almost everyone in Salem…if a Brady can be a villain so can a Horton(its about time)!!! Also, i like to think there is more to Theresa’s bad girl behavior than parents who werent always around…i like to think that when Theresa was much younger she was shocked and disapointed when she discovered that her own father, Shane, actually cheated on her mother Kim and had an affair with Theresa’s nanny played in… Read more »

Le sigh. It was fantastic! By 35 minutes, I almost forgot there was supposed to be a huge reveal because the episode was just so satisfying.

LOVED Blake’s delivery on the line. It had this boyish sarcasm that really rang true for the moment. It reminded me of EJ’s “Do you feel safe?” to Adrienne months ago. Not many words were necessary to drive a huge point home so the carefully chosen ones needed to pack a really good punch. And they did!

Can’t wait for tomorrow!

Abigail has very alluring lips too. Man, woman, it’s all about the lips to me. I want Abby and Nick… because I’m a lipsexual at heart.

I don’t think any true viewer was THAT surprised that he was still alive. However, I agree that the storyline was well written and well executed. DAYS OF OUR LIVES continues to thrive in a much discussed genre that people say is a product of by gone days. I think good story-telling will continue to succeed ~

I loved it. To make things better, I think Nick is the one who was standing outside the cabin when EJ and Abigail were getting cozy. It seems he will be in control for awhile.

EJ’s thinking, okay, I didn’t need to sleep with Abigail after all. Oh well. My bad, Sami.

Looking forward to what happens next. Of course, at the end of the day, it’s Nick’s word (and he is not exactly trustworthy) against Sami, Gabi, and Kate.

Im just happy Nick is back, IF he is the one with the pictures of EJ and Abby,
I want him to show Sami Lucas Abby Jenn and EJ what he has and do it ASAP

It would be so damn juicy if Nick would get custody of Ari!!! Exciting DAYS ahead!!!

I wrote that too…above, i said maybe he’ll try to get custody of the baby…what if there is another twist that helps Nick win Ari…he reveals he and Gabi were never legally divorced?

4everDAYS

4everDAYS

Yes, Maybe the divorce was not final.

Nick can blackmail Will into not fighting for custody.

Nick was saved by the bird watcher whom witnessed the three women throw Nick in the river.

I think that Nick has amnesia and does not remember what happened to him.

great posts! and a great way for Nick to bring it all out…. for his own personal needs and agenda

just a lot of potential for his character and to give him so many archs for “acting”

he’s just the guy to give the audience so much to marvel at

Super Fantastic cliff hanger Days is definitely still got it and always will. I hope Tony returns to Days also. Easy way to bring him back from the dead is to say It was Andrea that died.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
