Friday’s Days of our Livesoffered up an intense episode filled with gunfire, kidnappings, a wedding, and a freak out!

First, at the warehouse, John (Drake Hogestyn) and Eduardo (A Martinez) are facing off with thethe gunmen who are trying to kill them as they finish off their mysterious drinks!  It is revealed that Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Arianna have been kidnapped by these henchmen and someone is calling the shot using an altered voice.  Eventually, Marlena and Arianna are freed, and John tells Marlena to leave quickly.

As the situation in the warehouse escalates and shots ring out, back-up has come in the form of the Salem PD with Rafe (Galen Gering), JJ (Casey Moss) and Lani (Sal Stowers).  But things take a dire turn when Eduardo sees that his son in the line of fire from an oncoming bullet from one of the assasins.  Next, Eduardo throws himself in front of Rafe and is shot.  The next several minutes are tense as Eduardo is bleeding out, and Rafe is trying to hold his composure while tending to his father.  Rafe tells Lani to get an ambulance!  But then, Eduardo asks where John is and then everyone realizes he is gone! John has been kidnapped.

Later at the end of the episode, John is tied up and in some large room that eerily looks like a lab. In comes a decrepit old man with a horrendous red scar across his face with big eyes, who introduces himself as Timothy Robicheaux AKA Yo Lin (Tobin Bell)!   The old man implores John to look at his eyes to see their resemblance.  This finally introduces the story of the unraveling mystery of John’s biological father.

Meanwhilem Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) are in the throes of their wedding day, but the wedding party is MIA.  Chad eventually learns why after speaking with Gabi  (Camila Banus) who was worried for her daughter’s kidnapping and the best man Rafe iis n the middle of the shootout! Chad does some improvising and gets Theo (Kyler Pettis) to be his best man.

In the most touching moment of the episode, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), Adrienne (Judi Evans) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) give Abigail something borrowed, blue, and new which all had significant meanings.  Julie gives Abby a poem from her great-grandfather Tom Horton, who’s poet pen name was of course, “Norm De Plume”.  Adrienne gives Abigail a very sentimental locket with a photo of her late father Jack as a child inside …. so she’ll have always have her father nearby and to see the resemblance of her son and Jack.  Jennifer gives Abby a new penny for good luck and a drawing of a bouquet of violets she saved from Abby’s childhood.

Eventually, the wedding begins.  Doug (Bill Hayes) walks Abigail down the aisle.  As soon as she is facing Chad and the nuptials are about to begin, Abby sees the image of Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) through the window and freaks out and screams!  Did Abby really see Ben … or is she imaging it?

Sadly, after Gabi arrives at the hospital to be reunited with her daughter,  a cop tells her and Marlena to wait at the hospital and that he has been instructed to guard them.  What will Gabi do when she finds out her father has been shot? What will Marlena do when she realizes John has been kidnapped?

So, what did you think of Friday’s DAYS?  Did you enjoy the Chabby scenes and the beginning of their wedding?  Were your creeped out by Yo Lin?  Where is Ben Weston?  Will Eduardo’s shooting finally bring Rafe and his father closer?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Agreed!–but what they hey–what are the writers doing to Days–crazy scenes with John Black and his father Tim–W-A-Y out there; I’m afraid Days has become unwatchable for me. Hope murdering Stefano, Ciara raped, Joey smothering Ava–Patch taking the blame, the crazy man who kidnapped Abby returning to play havoc at the wedding of Chad and Abby, Jennifer, a walking zombie on pain pills. Who is there left to pull for in this CRAZY turn of events? I guess just turn it off!

LOL. I like that, 4ever. Great pay-on-words. Do you think that’s really Ben, out there; or is Abby’s mind playing tricks on her and us?

I think Abby’s fear pushed her to imagine seeing Ben, CeeCee.

Maybe she’ll truly see him in the flesh during her honeymoon…Imagine Chad and Abby in their honeymoon suite:

Chad orders room service. Abby’s in her dressing room or bathroom preparing for their big night. Room Service knocks at the door. Chad answers and it’s Ben. Ben subdues Chad…

Abby is ready and crawls into bed. She has no idea Ben is under the covers!

The scenerio you came up with (regarding Chad answering the door and Ben taking the place of a room service attendant) would probably be considerably more compelling than some of the dreary garbage they’ve currently got airing.
I don’t care much for this “Summer” character, the “John has found his equally raspy voiced father” storyline is for the birds, and the Ciarra was raped by her almost stepbrother storyline was not well excecuted and not convincingly acted. So, at least to this Viewer’s eyes, they’d better come up with something a tad more interesting in the near future.

Yo Lin and John…father and son…reunited at last so John can at last learn about his past…but are you like me-grown tired of the mystery-of waiting 3 decades to learn John’s true identity?…lol

I could care less about John, or what happens to him, Jimmy. The man annoys me to high heaven. Poor Marlena…’hey, doc!’.

I used to like him when he first came on and everyone thought he was Roman…liked him for years even after several of his identity changes but now its gotten to be too much with his convoluted and redundant storyline that i no longer care about him.

Hey, Jay.
I know I will get some backlash here since John is a fave of many fans….but, I have never liked John. I don’t know what it is? Maybe, the eternally puzzled look around his eyes and brows? Or the “hey, Doc”?

I haven’t watched for 30 years but if that’s how long the storyline has continued–sad. This ancient scarred man going on and on about Korea is awful and unwatchable. It’s as bad as all the murder.

As someone who just started watching Days only 3-4 years ago, the whole “John’s Story” thing is boring as hell! I don’t need to know what happened to him some 30 years ago and isn’t a guy in his 60’s a little old to be so concerned about who his mommy and daddy are?
I also can’t really make heads or tails out of the whole “Agency” storyline. Stupid.

On another note, while I’m complaining, the entire show needs a re-write. All the killings/deaths, rapes and kidnappings going on…NOT what I want to see on my “love-in-the-afternoon” pass time!

There are thousands of adults, some of them in their 50’s and 60’s, who are searching for their biological families. Even after 50 plus years these people want a connection to where they came from. John Black is not abnormal in wanting to know.

As a long time viewer…Days was at its best from the 60s to late 70s…it was good in the 80s to early 90s but nothing can compare to those first two decades…i believe Days has archived all their episodes…if current Days viewers could see those early years they would see what a great show it once was.

That old man, Jimmy, is so decrepit and strange looking….he gives me the weebie jeebies. Dracula needs John’s FRESH blood. Yuck and ugh!!!!!!!!
What a stupid, nonsensical story.
If TPTB consider this entertainment, then they need to get back to the grindstone and compile a more engaging draft/script. Sooooo creeeepy!!!!!!

Once again the only reason to watch DAYS is the story about Ben/Abby/Chad. I could care less about Eduardo. I could care less about John. I could care less about Summer. The biggest and saddest problem with DAYS is that I could care less is the phrase I use to describe it. Such a pathetically boring show as of late. I can’t believe it has become such a snooze fest. During the shootout with Eduardo and John all I could do is hope they were both taken down. And now the fake Howard Hughes like character as John’s father. Spare… Read more »

I agree, this Eduardo character is such a drag, nothing interesting nor appealing about him. I was thinking if he got killed it would be a great way to write him out, isn’t that awful LoL but I was thinking that. As for John…..zzzzzz…..and finding his father, who gives a rat’s tail.
The only story which slightly holds my interest is Abigail and Chad and the possibility that crazy Ben is back….otherwise, sorry, right now the show is as dull as unbuttered toast.

I enjoyed the show. I like and will miss this abby. The shoot out was fine. At least Days shoot out the cops won and the winners were not the mob don. Hope this won’t be the end for A. I just wish he would shave that awful thing on his chin. I hope Abby and Chad will at least get to go off on their honeymoon. I know KM is leaving , but a couple of days of happiness would be a good thing.

Rafe was always unhappy about the return of his pappy who abandon his family and made Rafe feel real crappy…but now that Eduardo took a bullet for Rafe and made him safe, will things turnaround and Rafe want him in town…lol

Am I the only one wondered if poor Abby and Chad could only muster Adrienne, Lucas, Doug, Julie and Jennifer for trhe wedding? Where is Maggie? At the hospital interviewing Summer for a non-paying job? The shoot-out scenes with Eduardo, John, JJ, Lani and Rafe were so bad that I kept waiting someone to yell “Cover me Bree.” JJ is NOT believable as a cop. His stone cold police poker face is BORING. Lani needs to be involved in a story instead of just trying to fit in with Abe, Theo, Rafe and Hope. I have mentioned before, but please… Read more »

At the beginning of the episode, Jen was on the phone with Maggie. It was explained that Victor was sick so Maggie needed to stay home with him. Weak excuse, but her absence was explained.

I don’t know where they think ROOKIE COP JJ is .

I guess Salem doesn’t have a SWAT team. Why else is ROOKIE COP JJ in the shoot out? I was like, OMG you have got to be kidding me. And Detective Lani is there too? Where is the SWAT team? I guess Rafe was in a hurry, but still, you could get some people who have been on the force, say a year, couldn’t you? And I don’t think detectives are usually involved like this. This show is just so ridiculous. But I keep watching. LOL And what was up with that baseball cap on backyards on Ed? Stupid. What,… Read more »

Yesterday’s ep was so yuck. John’s dad is so ridiculous. I found myself wondering if the actor liked the job or just needed the paycheck. I fast forwarded through most of the scenes. It is so convoluted and STUPID! So this guy, Yo Ling, has ths same disease as Caroline and he sent Deimos to get the serum. So, yes, Hope, you killed the wrong person. But Yo also has a blood disease and now needs John’s blood. Since John is captive, it’s not like Dad has to get his permission. But he will bring in Paul and I think… Read more »

I agree with you COMPLETELY – I watch the show on the NBC app and I’m not sure how to FF on it LoL – I try, believe me because I can’t take raspy voiced John talking to his raspy voiced father, ugh please. This storyline STINKS!
I almost want to apologize for being so blunt but they need to overhaul this show, they really do.
The only storyline right now that is marginally watchable is Abby with Chad with Ben possibly lurking nearby.

Mo
Guest

No apology needed. I have felt bad for being so harsh, but I have just had it with the stupid writing. The whole assassin thing is ridiculous. People are just talking about it like it’s just a regular job. No one has said, well, we need to find out who they killed and charge them with murder or something. The cops are ridiculous. There’s no chemistry with JJ and Gabi–they’re just put together because there’s no one else. Joey confessing to that girl and the girl not freaking out is stupid. Some of the acting is god awful. Maggie can’t… Read more »

Am I to understand they cast a Caucasian man as John’s part Asian father? So, Josh Griffith has the triple crown: blatant homophobia, misogyny and now racism. Keep it classy, Days.

Is the father really supposed to be part Asian?

No. From what I’ve read, the man deserted from the Korean War, ran off to China, and assumed a new identity: Yo Ling.

I am tired of John Black. If this storyline brings genuine resolution to the mess that is his history, then good… but make it quick.

I do long for some reality and romance in Salem. We seemed to have taken a turn after so much fun, surprise, and reunion in the last year. Don;t blow it!

There WAS chemistry between young Paige and JJ but for whatever reason, there is no chemistry whatsoever between JJ and Gaby. She got out of Prison extra early for Murder, well after all it WAS only her first murder – soo ridiculous. The storyline of ultra-boring John and his long lost father Lo Mein or whatever the heck his name is, honestly – the show is awful right now! I am only aprox. a 2 and a half year viewer but at least the show used to be good when it centered around Sonny, Will, EJ, Sammi and JJ’s crazy… Read more »

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.

Photo: JPI

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.
