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.

Mary

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.

Awesome promo, and I can’t wait to go on this ride with DAYS.

Now, cue the haters in 3.. 2..

Not hating the idea of DOOL suddenly fast forwarding a year as of yet. I want to see how it all starts to play out first.

They will not disappoint. One day in and they are complaining already.

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.

Denise

Who depicts nor pretense forward what will happen for isn’t that what this escape is all about eh?

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. Things dont get better soon, i will be done with show. It is the only soap that i watch. We need better stories.

Robyn

I totally agree! I watched the show today and thought it was stupid!! None of it made sense! This is the only soap I watch too and I’m not sure if I will continue!!

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!

Pat Shires

For your information they never have done a time jump EVER. No soap has EVER done a time jump before only Days Of Our Lives. Be done watching who cares. Only true days of out lives fans don’t give up. Carry on.

Tired of all the haters about days. Threatening 2 stop watching. So stop, nobody cares. Just don’t ruin it 4 every1 else. Just leave it 4 the real fan lovers of days of our lives. But I’m sure they’ll be baackkk.⏳ child petty threats i swear there worse than 3rd graders in school.

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

I’m loving the time jump! The twists in the stories are incredible! This is the most intriguingly addictive Days has been since Marlena put on the hockey mask! Perfect drama!

Rebecca Myers

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.

Diane

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.

Elise Kiefer

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

Adam
Adam

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.

Mary
Mary

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.

Channing Capwell

Two thumbs up!

Yes to all that, deepdish73, but we’re also tuning in to see what happened, as well as what’s happening. I love my DAYS!

Maybe I just FF too fast, but did they ever say what Sarah’s baby’s name is? So many possibilities, such as Erica, Victoria, Margaret, Rexanne, etc.

I loved Days at first, now I’m finished with it. Soaps aren’t as good as they once was. You can tell there time is up once this happens. So sad.

Karen Smith

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

Connie Swiney

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 you can’t please everyone. It’s your story tell it how you want. You will read “ I will never watch this again” so not true, a true soap fan is addicted to characters and the show, and will continue watching regardless what you present to us. We may hate, love, complain, be angry, be happy….that is called feelings…..you give that to us. So people enjoy the changes, give it a chance! You just may love it. I know, I do!!!!
Thank you DAYS OF OUR LIVES. For not giving up, as so many other soap has in the past. You are amazing!

‘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 would prefer the storyline we were watching in real time, I think this year ahead is more like watching someone having a dream.

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 a way. So for all of us with our opinions. Can we not just keep our own for once. Mine is I happen to love as always My Favorite daytime escape “Day’s of Our Lives” ,,,,,,,,,,So for old fashioned values, who’s baby is who’s life really never changes just death and taxed. No that is not right either. Faces and bodies change too eh!!! So onward and upward “DOOL” I would join the writers of Days anytime and place. Be in 1967 or 2019

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.   

Photo: CBS

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

DAYS Wally Kurth, Chandler Massey & Freddie Smith Deliver Gut-Wrenching ‘Power Performance of the Week”

This past week on Days of our Lives brought the tears and the drama tenfold, in one of the most riveting, don’t-miss-a-moment, weeks in recent history on any daytime drama series.

While unfortunately the show did not air on NBC during its regularly scheduled timeslots on all coasts (due to the President Donald Trump impeachment hearings) the episodes were available on NBC.com, the NBC app and on the Cozi TV network.

And this week we cannot sound-the-trumpets enough for three men; who gave us moments of heartache that will be remembered for some time to come, pulling out all the stops, and showing us why they remain three of the most popular and talented actors in our genre. So many people have been commenting on social media on the authenticity and realness of the performances (yes, it’s within soapy circumstances), but throughout made us feel their pain right along with them.

On DAYS, this was the week they went back in time to finally show the viewers how things ended up the way they currently are in the time jump that happened last November on-air.  And in five “OMG” episodes, head writer Ron Carlivati and his team laid out for us how one fateful night, “Mother’s Day” changed the course of lives for so many in Salem.

Chief among them, Will (Chandler Massey) landing in prison for Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, when in fact, he was not the responsible party at all.  But in these flashback episodes, Will’s relationship with his husband, Sonny (Freddie Smith), his father-in-law, Justin (Wally Kurth) is forever changed because he believed he was the one behind the wheel that caused the crash that ultimately took Adrienne’s life, and took Sonny’s mother from him … and Justin’s wife from him.

In the flashback to the horrible night: at the hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) has told Justin that Adrienne didn’t make it following the injury sustained to her head in the accident, and now Justin has to tell Sonny.  He tearfully tells his son, “We lost her. Your mother’s dead!”  As the men console each other and break down in each other’s arms, Will, who is there, and who was trying to tell Sonny his part in the accident, is horrified to learn Adrienne died.  Kayla asks Justin and Sonny if they want to say goodbye to Adrienne.  Sonny breaks down again at just the thought of it.  And at this point, we are sure DAYS fans are reaching for the hankies.

Photo: JPI

While Will’s guilt is too much for him to bear, Justin and Sonny go say goodbye to Adrienne, It is here that it was almost too hard to watch, but we soap viewers can’t turn away.  That’s because it was just an unbelievable raw performance from Freddie Smith; as a young man who has to say goodbye to the mother he loves and on Mother’s Day to boot. Then, Justin kisses Adrienne’s forehead, remembers the first time he saw her crying in a flashback, and in tears asks his beloved wife, how is he supposed to go on without her.  In addition, Justin recalls proposing to Adrienne with Kayla there beside him trying to comfort him.

Courtesy.NBC

In the hospital waiting area, Will tries to talk to Sonny to tell him that he caused the accident.  Will blurts out, “I killed your mother.”  Sonny, who is so grief-stricken, cannot believe what Will is saying, but then Sonny learns Will was distracted when he was texting his mother Sami on Mother’s Day while in the car because he was so busy. (Yup, Will forgot to do it earlier in the day)  Sonny lets Will have it with: “My mom is dead because you were texting?!” As Sonny’s grief and anger escalates, Justin walks in and learns Will caused Adrienne death and then lowers the boom on Will: “The love of my life is dead…because of you!”

Courtesy/NBC

And if all of this wasn’t enough to have you bawling your eyes out by now, it is punctuated by the ultra-sad moment where a defeated Will has to leave his husband and his father-in-law alone because they don’t want him there.  Before he exits, Will turns to them and says, that he wishes it had been him who died in the crash, as tears stream down his face.

The Can’t-Miss Week of Days of our Lives: What Happened The Night Adrienne Died? And … More Questions Answered

Make sure to catch Days of our Lives on any platform you can next week! (The President Donald Trump impeachment hearings could alter the regularly scheduled daytime time slot for the series on NBC).  For, it is a pivotal one for fans that have been following along the major storylines of the innovative time jump that started to air last November.

In one emotional week, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Justin (Wally Kurth) revisit the last day of Adrienne’s life — which happens to be last Mother’s Day.  In addition, Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) goes into labor.  While. Brady (Eric Martsolf) causes tension when he brings Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) to his parents’ townhouse for Mother’s Day.  Plus, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) gets an upsetting visit from someone from her past.  How does this all tie-in to what went down that fateful night?

The latest NBC promo for the series promises we will learn what happened to Adrienne, especially since on Friday’s episode, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) told Will(Chandler Massey) he is not responsible for his mother-in-laws death AFTER he signed the divorce papers with Sonny.   Plus major intel on what happened to Brady and Kristen’s baby and how Haley Chen (Thia Megia) died, which had left an anguished JJ (Casey Moss) turning back to drugs.
