Days of our Lives Blockbuster Flash-Forward Promo: Where Are Your Favorites One-Year Later?

Courtesy/NBC

Every year at the annual NBC Day of Days event at Universal City, California’s CityWalk, fans in attendance are treated to the premiere of the extended and exciting promo of what’s to come in story in the weeks ahead.

But this year, the promo was even more exciting because it revealed pieces and teases of what’s happened in Salem and to your favorite characters within the one-year time jump that began on last Friday’s episode when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) woke up out of her coma and learned from Jack (Matt Ashford) that she had been asleep for a year! And … thus begins a daytime first for a drama series.

In the DAYS November sweeps promo, viewers see that Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) have their baby and so does apparently, Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  Then. Jack says to Abigail (Kate Mansi) that she is her number one reporter, while Victor (John Aniston) tells Ciara (Victoria Konefal) she is the future of the family.  Elsewhere, it looks like Kate (Lauren Koslow) is waiting tables?

Meanwhile, Sonny (Freddie Smith) says “I miss him, I miss him a lot.” Who is he referring to? Clyde (James Read) is back and looks to be in an adjoining cell with his son, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)!  Also in prison are the ladies, Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall) and none other than Eve (Kassie DePaiva)

Then, Gabi (Camila Banus) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are making out and apparently things have heated up between them, once again, and Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) is still looming.  Will she come between John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), and will Jennifer remember that Gina pushed her of the balcony a year ago?

Watch the promo for the time-jump below.  Then, let us know what story you are looking forward to most, and finding out how it plays out via the comment section below.

The promo—in comparison to the past few yeas—feels understated, and one note, and while I get that might be their intention, there is a lot missing for me from it. I’m excited, though, because out of the four daytime soaps, Days of Our Lives is doing something worth watching. I’m just hoping post-production values [finally] change!

Michael – do you know why Suzanne Rogers was not there? I was relieved to see her in the promo.

I don’t know if this means anything but in the 1980’s Suzanne was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis. It can affect her neck, eyes, mouth and voice. Perhaps, Suzanne is dealing with Myasthenia Gravis again.

Why are they messing up Sonny and Will. Will was just brought back from the dead they would have had their first anniversary and we miss their Valentine’s day 2020 why is the need to always mess with these two characters.
Can’t there be one stable true love on any soap.
These two actors said at day of days that they did not like the storyline themselves. So days if you’re smart leave them alone.

I dont like the time jump. The story lines are stupid. I didnt like the time jump the last they did it. I tried of you breaking people up. John and marlena needs to be left alone. Sonny and will should be together. Brady and christine shouldnt be together. Glad to see that they some people are back on the show. I know,You need drama but we need to see that people stay. Together and work out problems. Doug and julie needs to be left alone. Gina part is stupid, they done that one before and people didnt like it.… Read more »

The time jump storylines just started. It began the last minute of FriDAYS episode. I liked toDAYS episode very much. It was filled with mystery, as if watched with fresh eyes. A perfect time for new viewers. And this is the first time DAYS did a time jump (flash forward). Excided to to see all the answers to all the questions involving the missed time. I love it!

can your writers not come up with any other better story lines it seems that these our lives are the only show that people dying come back to life this does not happen in the real world yes maybe they come back as someone’s twin which is a little different than being dead and then all the sudden they’re live again get your act together writers are all stop watching the show also

Cool something different for once. I’m not surprised anymore when a wedding is planned for months then something happens in the middle of the wedding to stop it. Or how many lives do these people really have. You can normally miss Several episodes of a show and it wouldn’t matter. The next episode you see their still talking about the same thing.ive been able to predict what’s gonna happen next for years.but never predicted a time jump into the future.

You have totally destroyed my favorite soap! As a matter of fact I quit watching General Hospital and One life to live when they had new writers who wrote the storyline as if they never saw or read about the characters. The new writers changed things up way too much. I feel like you really don’t care how invested us viewers are!!! I guess that will free up one hour every afternoon for me. I doubt that I am the only disappointed fan and I have watched DOOL from the first episode.

Very unhappy they let Judi Evans go. Still willing to give the time jump a chance otherwise.

I agree… I can’t believe they let her go when she was with the show for soooo long. I’m hoping they find a way to incorporate Judi… hope it’s not true that Adrienne died, I hope that just a rumor.

They let Judi Evans go or did she want to go? Judi was languishing on DOOL.

I think the time jump is FABULOUS! Keep the audience guessing and tuning in to find out what happens next – that is what a great soap opera is all about. Who wants all their favorite couples to live happily ever after? Sure, weddings are fun to watch, but happy couples = BORING in my opinion. If you don’t enjoy endless drama, dark secrets, illicit affairs and whodunnit murders, you’re no true fan of the soap opera genre.

I don’t know about this time jump because I don’t like the Princess Gina role and Gabi and Eli getting back together also why is Ben blamed for his sister’s death and what’s Will doing in jail,Also Kate should not be waiting tables

It’s amazing how people complain so much, how days drag out their storylines. Well now people are complaining of The time jump. Personally I think it is awesome and mysterious. Now we don’t have months of why Lani didn’t marry, we all know why, or months of Abigail arriving in Salem, months of Jack at Jennifer bedside. We got exactly what it is like when someone wakes up from a coma, from their perspective. A lot can change in a year. You should always count your blessing for the moment have, you never know what your future will bring. DAYS… Read more »

‘Tis a bust for me. Can’t get into it…..dumb and dumber. And Hope—-please, you guys…..yes, you–the writers—-get rid of both Principessa Gina and Hope. Hope seems to have reached the end of the road. Therefore, Pricess Gina was resuscitated for the single purpose of making her relevant. Sacrebleu!!

I love the Days of Our Lives Year later in the lives lost, loves found,hatred of warriors and clowns., Hey back in the first days of Days was good old fashioned escape for house Mothers and Fathers. Time tells of baby switching, clone catching and the life in todays league of soap dollars. With this current 2019 writing in a jolly jump forward captured my fancy to just how my life would be. Makes someone think if life had that apparent leap for all of Us. Life is not sound of judgement calls, time erosion nor friends lost. Love finds… Read more »

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.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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.
