Last weekend in Hollywood (Sat. November 7th), Days of our Lives threw one fabulous shindig to celebrate and ring in their 50th anniversary at the legendary Hollywood Palladium.

Throughout this entire week, DAYS has been celebrating on-air with major dramatic episodes, and with their fans at the annual Day of DAYS event this weekend.  To mark the occasion of their once-in-a-lifetime celebration, where some of Salem’s finest and most notable past and present came together for one special night, the iconic series has posted a sizzle reel and inside look containing some of the hightlights from the night including soundbytes with: Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Kristian Alfonso, Chandler Massey, Joe Mascolo, Thaao Penghlis, Billy Flynn, Galen Gering, Arianne Zucker, Suzanne Rogers, Melissa Reeves, Eric Martsolf, James Reynolds, Ken Corday, Maree Cheatham, Melissa Reeves, Eileen Davidson, Alison Sweeney, Christie Clark, Kate Mansi, Patrick Muldoon and more.  Plus, a look at a few of the moments and performances inside the party featuring: Stephen Nichols, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, Eric Martsolf, a celebratory toast led by Ken Corday, and much more.

While fans were in the bleachers watching the red carpet arrivals on DAYS biggest night, one of them enscapsulated the sentiments shared by many longtime viewers of what the series means to them.  And then to pay tribute to the longest running scripted series in NBC Television history, which has lasted an astounding 50 years, several cast members each gave a very special anniversary shout-out to their show.

Days is good right now and suspenseful but its a little too violent…..show needs some lighter moments and comic relief to help balance the show with so much gloom and doom in just about every episode! Too much depressing news in the real world as it is-i need my daily escape and im not finding it here! Still like the show and its the best right now!

Thank you for posting this. So glad Days reached 50 and to see all the actors saluting the show. They all seem to be in such great spirits. For the past few years (after my beloved GL and ATWT got cancelled), Days has been the soap for me.

AWESOME! this is what a daytime drama should be. Admittedly a little dark and violent, but so suspenseful and, from my study (am relatively new to DAYS since the cancellations of my favorites few years back), true to families and history. The genre is not dead. Never was.

What a great party for the cast and crew to celebrate the 50th milestone. Thanks for including comments from Suzanne Rogers – my all time favorite.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
