She is, Ricardo! Anna will discover that Andre is really Tony whom is really the father of Paul. Jasmine, the island girl, gave birth to Paul and put him up for adoption.

Congratulations on 13000 episodes. May #Days celebrate 13000 more. Fine and outstanding actors, doing what they do best, entertain. Don’t let the haters and negative so called fans shut down Days. There are enough of us out there that watch and are not as vocal. Keep the romance, intrigue and excitement going. Keep family members together and on a selfish note get Hope and Rafe together they have a special connection. Again congrats

Ken Corday and Jennifer Salke need to wake up and realize what a disgrace this proud show has become, but sadly the permanent damage has probably been done already. How is it that we, the (former) viewers know it, but these so-called PTB do not (at least publicly)? We’re not stupid. This has to be the absolute worst, most offensive writing ever featured on a daytime soap, and that’s saying a lot. NBC should be embarrassed. Gee, if you’ve been under a rock for the last six months, you’d think it’s all sunshine and rainbows with this show from reading… Read more »

100% agree! Even prime time shows film only about 2 months ahead of airing. Filming 6 months ahead of airing is ridiculous. They’re killing this show.

I agree what they have done to what was a once good show is disgusting. The new writers, ep’s and Ken have trashed and destroyed the show beyond recognition. That’s why so many who once loved the show have been leaving the show because they choose to destroy the show and as many characters as they could. Ken’s parents must be turning over in their graves at the massive damage Ken let happen and the many viewers they have chased away from the show.

I started to watch this show on day 1 and I no longer watch it. I just can’t watch the train wreck that has been made of this show. I took it off my DVR several month ago and I don’t think I will be going back. Ken Corday has lied and lied to us fans over and over again. So I am done with it. Makes me sad, it used to be a great show.

I Love Days! Always have always will. However I would like to see more couples stay together as a family unit, which is why the program worked for so many years. Thank you Doug & Julie, Marlena & John, even Maggie & Victor. How about getting Hope & Rafe together for good, and Jennifer is too young to be alone. Soaps need villains but also good guys like Jennifer (not going thru addiction). Congrats and thank you, look forward to many more episodes.

The way it’s going, present and former cast members will be gathering to mourn the massacre of what was once a great show. It sickens me to be watching the painful demise of a show I have watched from Nov. 1965.

I have watched Days since the beginning when I was a freshman at college and we would schedule our classes around the show. Thank goodness when v.c.r.s came out during my 35 yr.tecching career. Now that I am retired, I am still a faithful watcher and will be as long as you continue showing your wonderful stories about the families in Salem. Congratulations on 13,000!

I’ve been watching since the very first episode and I can’t believe what it has become. I truly believe the writers are trying to turn this into a telenovela. Enough with the Hernandez family. Raphael and Gabi are good characters but the rest of them can take a hike. BRING BACK THE BRADYS, HORTONS, KYRIAKES’ AND DIMERAS! I never thought I would see the day I would have to read subtitles on this soap, but it happened! Enough is enough- let’s get back to “the Days of Our Lives” and leave the telenovelas to Univision and Telemundo. PPLLEEAASSEE!

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
