I think one of my favorite story lines was when Sammy Brady kidnapped her sister and was going to give Belle to a baby selling ring
Also When Days showed Sammy using diet pills to loose weight. Showing what happens when you do this.. Considering I am a Days watcher from the beginning. With both Tom and Alice Horton were still alive ✅

Nice interview!!! I didn’t even recognize Adrienne when she first came on. She looked so different and then with the new voice.

I didn’t find it funny in the least, just inane and ridiculous. I thought the whole limited series was unnecessary to be honest – unless, they were testing the waters to see if DOOL would survive as an on-line series only, and I believe it could.

Beyond Salem was great on so many levels — writing, humor, inside jokes, winks to the audience, acting, chemistry, and its “film” look rather than video tape. Peter Porte, Zach Tinker, and Scott Bailey were great additions to the cast. My hat is off to all involved. More of this, please!

My grandmother is beyond excited about this. She schooled me on “Days” ever since I can remember. She has been watching since its inception, making her a font of info and knowledge—-She’s a great storyteller–with spice.
I must add that today ( day off, thankfully), I had a most satisfying laugh—-Bill Hayes is the best at characterizing Doug as the proverbial “Dirty Old Man”. Made my day–so funny—still laughing.
Kudos to the writers—hoping to have a little more, subtle humor.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
