DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric's Day Of Reckoning!

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives was filled with emotional moments as Greg Vaughan wrapped up his run as Eric Brady, when Eric was finally sentenced to five years in prison!  But before the sentencing and him being shackled and carted off to the big house, much went down.

Let’s start with the night before the sentencing filled with sex, booze, pills, and rock and roll as pill-popping Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and drunken Eric found comfort in each other by being completely wasted.  The morning after, Eric is late for his sentencing and leaves his cell phone behind.  The once mighty Jennifer Horton begins to have images of having sex with Eric in a drugged out drunken haze.

At the Salem Police Department, Roman (Josh Taylor), Marlena (Deidre Hall), and John (Drake Hogestyn) along with Belle (Martha Madison) who is representing Eric at the sentencing, are gathered together.  However, Eric comes in from his night with Jennifer disheveled smelling of booze and breath mints which ticks off Roman.  Eric pleads with him to understand it was his last free night before going to jail.  Next who should wander in but a dishelved Jennifer, who came to give Eric his phone.  But then lo and behold, a smackdown is about to go down between Marlena and Jennifer when doc pulls her alone into the interrogation room.

Marlena lays into Jennifer about her pill-popping, and how she could do this to Eric?  Jennifer looks ashamed. Marlena admits Eric told her he was worried about Jennifer’s self-medicating.   Then the good doc tells Jennifer, basically, “some fine friend you turned out to be”.   Suddenly Eric comes into the room and breaks up the confrontation.  He tells his mother and Jennifer he wants to say goodbye to them there, and not in the courtroom where he will be taken away and they will have to watch.

Then came the heartbreaking moments:  Eric thanks John for always looking after Marlena.  They hug.  He then goes to Jennifer, calls her a good friend and they kiss.  Saying goodbye to Roman was tough.  Eric tells Roman he wishes he was a better son.  Roman tells Eric he is a great son, and he is proud of him through his tears. 

But in the best performance of the episode from Deidre Hall and Vaughan, Eric goes to his mother and asks her to please promise she will look after Jennifer.  Ashamed, Eric tells his mother the worst thing about going to prison is knowing, of all people, that he let her down.  In tears and overcome with grief,  Marlena tells him she loves him and cries.  Eric heads to his day of reckoning before the judge.

In the final moments, Roman gets a call that Eric’s been sentenced to five years.  Everyone is stunned.  And in Vaughan’s final scene,  Eric’s in shackles and put on the bus with the new prisoners being transferred to the penitentiary.  Trying valiantly to hold it together, but with the enormity and severity of the situation weighing on him, Eric knows that his life for the next five years has forever changed!

Kudos have to go to Deidre Hall as the mother having to say goodbye to her beloved son who is going away to prison, and for Vaughan in his final DAYS moments.

What did you think of Eric’s last moments?  Deidre and Greg’s performances?  Would you like to see Eric return to the canvas in much less than five years?  It’s soaps after all! Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Eric was drunk and chose to get behind the wheel of a car. He then proceeded to cause an accident that killed Daniel and injured both Jennifer and Brady. You don’t think Eric should be forced to spend time in prison as a result?

Fantastic job by all! I really felt the reality of the situation. This kind of thing happens in real life where good people make bad choices and have to pay. It was very moving.

Amazing performances! I’m still dabbling the tears away…heavy sigh…
I will really miss Greg and hope he will one day have a return of some sort yo Salem. Who knows, maybe a prison story arch where he finds his priestly calling renewed in prison? Anyway, wonderful scenes and kudos all around!

I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes back someday or at least the character does. When Belle exits that will leave Marlena with no kids left in Salem! On a side note, wouldn’t mind seeing Greg Vaughan go to General Hospital! It might give Liz something Jasonless to do!

I thought the scenes were good, but I would have liked more scenes of Eric and Jennifer together. Eric and Nicole have a huge history together, so it didn’t feel right that he did not attempt to see her and beg for forgiveness for killing Daniel.

i loved the episode – greg & diedre did not disappoint – they really showed what talented actor/actress they are – i am so sorry to see greg leave days but his talent was so wasted on dool – i do not want him to come back if the writing is going to be like it was this time……..
i am so glad that greg is going to be on the new show on the own network called sugar queen – can’t wait to see him on my tv screen again!!

I liked Greg Vaughan as “Eric Brady”. When his character came on the scene, it looked promising, but I never liked the story between him and “Nicole”. Then they stopped writing for him. No development.
Eric will not stay in for 5 years. There is county time and good behavior. I think Eric will be a pastor or a priest while in jail. He might get out in 2 years.

Roman kind of reminds me of ATWTs Hal Munson-anyway, i thought this was a better episode for a change but i only got to see parts-can we expect a late life pregnancy for Jen…Is Ciara pregnant-missed some eps…had both pregnant maybe Jen looses hers but gets switched withCiara’s thanks to Theo and Ciara thinks she lost her child-i know that story been done before but it could still be interesting???…Days should have kept Erik and Belle!!!

This is definitely an Emmy reel for everyone who was involved. This only proves that the best acting is on daytime by far.

I popped in to watch Greg Vaughn’s last episode. “Popping in” is about all the time I can give Days anymore. I think Greg & Missy did a great job. Josh Taylor was as stiff as ever and that’s all I can say about that. FFwd the rest of the show.

I think they made a mistake letting Greg Vaughn go.. He had a lot to add to the storylines and they really dropped the ball with him.. I wish him well with his new movie with Oprah.. And hope they bring him back !

The final scene with Eric boarding the bus going off to prison was gut wrenching. I was terrified for him. I am so very sorry to lose Eric.

I am so very sorry to see Greg Vaughan leave. He is a wonderful actor who brought tremendous strength and grace to Eric. Thank you Greg for your wonderful work. I wish you the very best in your future.

I actually tuned in for this, kept flashing back to Eric as the idealistic priest trying to do good and felt sick. I know stuff like this can happen when good people make bad choices. But it was just too sad an end for a character I really liked at one time. Checking back out of depressing Days now… Best wishes to Greg Vaughn on his new show.

As much as I was sorry and sad to see Eric’s descent and fall as he struggled with his demons, this does happen, and Greg has done an excellent job in portraying this human drama. I hope he can come back at some point to redeem himself even if he always has inner conflicts. Once again, kudos to the cast for portraying heart wrenching scenes with depth, raw human emotion, and compassion.

This is what pisses me off: TIIC at DOOL got rid of a wonderfully pivotal character like Eric Brady (and his TOTALLY AWESOME portrayer Greg Vaughan)…yet…they’re gonna let those annoying, dreadful and even more unwatchable teens stay around. WHAT THE HELL?!?!? N-O. SHAME ON YOU, DOOL!!!!!

As the son of a police officer, Eric would be in protective custody.

I didn’t like Eric and Jen.

Eric just seemed to have a story to nowhere.

Although I think the actor portraying Eric is fine, the character is so sanctiminious at times it’s annoying. In addition to that, it doesn’t seem like his storyline of late has been terribly interesting. Since he was responsible for the terrible accident, it seems appropriate that he would do some time.

Greg Vaughan for that heart wrenching episode deserves a Daytime Emmy Award next year along with Deidre Hall, It brought you to the edge of your seat with tears rolling down your face at least for me it did. Days should have never wrote him off he and Nicole had such chemistry the were HOT together!!

Kevin Spirtas Talks ‘After Forever’s’ Digital Special ‘Riley’s Unforgettable School Project’, The Loss of Michael Slade, and a Chance to Reprise DAYS Craig Wesley

The coronavirus pandemic has put to the test many content creators on just how they would keep their projects moving forward in ways they never dreamed of. However, out of that situation has come some of the most compelling, unique series, specials, and features currently streaming for viewers. One of which is Riley’s Unforgettable School Project, brought to you by the team from the six-time Daytime Emmy Award-winning series, After Forever.

Former Days of our Lives star, Kevin Spirtas (Ex-Craig Wesley) has starred in and created the first two seasons of what has become the most honored Emmy-awarded LGBTQ-themed drama series on any platform.  Along with his ‘After Forever’ writing/producing partner, the late Michael Slade (DAYS, OLTL, Passions, Another World), the two also conceptualized and delivered this latest documentary-style offering now on Amazon Prime Video.

What makes Riley’s Unforgettable School Project so noteworthy is not just how they were able to execute the series based on fictional 11-year-old Riley’s virtual school project and utilize its cast, which includes: Spirtas, Cady Huffman, Jamison Stern, Lenny Wolpe, Erin Cherry, Anita Gillette, Christopher J. Hanke, and Finn Douglas, but that it was made while Slade was succumbing to his battle with cancer, and that this special marks the final script from this talented writer.

 

Michael Fairman TV spoke with Spirtas about making the special during Covid-19, how the death of Michael Slade has made a lasting impact on his life, what After Forever has personally meant to him, and how an official third season is still in the works, and … if he would consider a return to Salem and Days of our Lives, should they come a-calling.  Here’s what Kevin had to say about it all.

Photo: AfterForever

I think the entire story of this digital special has become even more meaningful with Michael Slade’s passing. What was the genesis of the concept? You wanted to continue the telling of the story of After Forever … but we are all in the middle of a pandemic?

KEVIN:  Yes and… when we filmed season 2, we had the scripts for season 3 already completed. It was our hope and desire to film them at the same time, back-to-back, so that we would have had all of our cast and crew together, and we could have gotten through it because we’ve always imagined this story being told in a trilogy so to speak – a beginning, middle, and end to Brian (Spirtas) and Jason, (Mitchell Anderson) and Brian’s healing or his steps towards healing through grief.  Schedules turned out that they couldn’t really work out for us to hold all the people and hold all of the sets for that amount of time.  So, we thought, “We’ve got the scripts for season 3 ready.  We’ll come back to it in the following year,” and that was always the intention, and then the pandemic hit.  So, it was shut down immediately that we weren’t going to do anything, but we wanted to stay current, and instead of going back in and telling the third installment of After Forever as a Covid-19 story as well, Michael and I sat down and looked at a way of staying relevant and current with a story within COVID, and there was born the idea to do this documentary style story/special about the characters of After Forever told through the lens of the character of Riley, the 11-year-old boy, who is now being homeschooled during the pandemic. He gets an assignment to do a project about the most unforgettable person he has ever met, and he, of course, chooses his best friend, the late Jason Adams, and he enlists all of Jason’s friends and family to join in.  Michael actually said, “What if we tell a story about Riley being homeschooled?” And, not only is Riley a technical genius at 11-years-old in the story, but Finn Douglas, who plays Riley, is a technical genius.

And didn’t Finn perform and write the song “Forever There” contained within the special?

KEVIN. Yes. He is this incredible musician.  Michael thought, “What would it be like if we asked to have the character of Finn sing a song for Jason?”  I said, “Well, what kind of song would we have him sing?”  Finn could play anything, I’m sure, because he’s self-taught, he plays by ear – guitar, piano, and drums.  Michael said, “What if we ask him to see if he could write a song?” and when we heard this song, we all called each other and we all got on Zoom and went, “Can you believe this song?  Can you believe this came out of this 11-year-old?”  It’s pretty incredible.  Michael did a gorgeous job of weaving the stories in and out and how they just sort of dove-tailed into each other, and then it was framed by Riley opening the project and ending the project.  During the Zoom reading we wanted to hear the song out loud.  We said to Finn, “Would you want to sing the song?”  We all just watched everybody on that Zoom call just fall apart.  It was just so beautiful. He’s an amazing talent.

Where is your character within this?

KEVIN:  I still stand in the center of the story of Jason because my character, Brian, was married to Jason, and it sort of connects us all, and through Riley’s understanding of how we all connect to Jason, is how we are all sort of spread out throughout the story.  Michael jokingly said, “You know, you’re not going to be the star of this special,” and I said, “I don’t think it’s about being the star.  It’s really about the storytelling.”  The beauty of Riley’s Unforgettable School Project is that we get to see moments of each person’s relationship with Jason, which Riley sets out to say, “Answer these three questions: What did you like most about Jason?  What did you like least about Jason? And what’s your favorite memory?”  Those three things, cut back and forth is where we all kind of fit in.  Nobody has more of a story than the next person, and it’s all telling honest portrayals of how they’re dealing with their loss of their good friend, or their child, or partner.

It’s a very inventive idea during Covid-19 to continue it in a way where you weren’t having to go shoot a full season of episodes.

KEVIN:  Well, we couldn’t. I have to say, Allison Vanore, who not only produced this special, but she also stepped up saying, “I’d love to direct this,” and I said, “Yes, please!”  She knows the characters.  She understands the story because she’s been a part of it for the last two seasons.  Allison also has this extraordinary amount of knowledge and expertise with the camera and what was needed for a remote shoot, and to also be able to organize filming 13 people in 2 different countries and 5 different cities… that’s just the technical side of it, but having that in our back pocket, knowing that it was a remote shoot, we had to send the camera, the computer, the ring light, and the microphone to each person’s house.  We had to location scout over Zoom.  We had to do wardrobe over Zoom.  It was all this big puzzle putting it together, and once you look at that board of storytelling and how we were going to do it, it kind of fell into place.  I feel blessed that a) we still had Michael with us, at that point, and b) Allison had the know-how to do this.  We all feel that at least this pandemic didn’t keep us from doing what we love.

Photo: AfterForever

In terms of the contribution of Michael Slade in this special, was it the construction of the story, and how was he able to work and write this during his illness?

KEVIN:  Michael’s contribution to the special was no less than the contribution to season 1 and season 2, and the future of season 3, because the scripts are written.  We did everything on Zoom, and we worked around his schedule of treatment.  We scheduled 2 people per day, and we spread them out over two weeks.  He was very present, and when there would be a day where he would say, “I’m going to be an hour late, let’s just push that call time,” I would ask, “Is this too much right now?  We can shelve it; we can stop it.” He’d then say, “Absolutely not, otherwise cancer will win.”  He was determined to stay focused and to stay active because it took his mind off of what was happening to him.

Photo: AfterForever

It would be lovely moment if you both were to win a Daytime Emmy for this project. 

KEVIN:  It’s our last collaboration together as a team, as I said, season 3 has been scripted, and it is on the calendar to get made.  We are just waiting for the COVID restrictions to lift a little bit and everyone to get vaccinated.  Michael was really hit hard with cancer – to stay healthy was so challenging for him.  Sadly, he didn’t make it to see the final edit of the special, and he died four days before we launched, but he had seen the cuts before that and was very approving of it, and had made some decisions, and offered some suggestions, and if God gives him an Emmy for this, it’s not because he died.  It’s because it’s great work.  It just happens to be that the work that was involved in this particular special was very tricky.  It brought up everything, like life itself to have to deal with.  Here we are dealing with the loss of a colleague, the loss of a friend, someone’s brother, someone’s son, this is life imitating art, imitating art imitating life. I can’t tell you the darkness that I went through just experiencing the need to stay focused on getting everything edited, and everything ready, and everything aligned for a release of this project that we had put into motion.  On top of it, our editor lost his mother just before Michael passed, and Allison’s mom was sick at the time, as well.  It took a lot of heavy deep breaths with Michael’s death, and the pandemic, and the loss has, for me, on a personal level, sent me back to really questioning my spiritual muscle and to help remind me that we have to come out of this better than we went into this.  I had many dark nights of the soul this last year, and December was probably the darkest.  I feel like I’m just kind of coming out of it now with the spring revealing itself.

Photo: AfterForever

It must have been extraordinarily difficult for you to also go to New York during a pandemic and also knowing Michael did not have much time left.

KEVIN:  I will say this: I am grateful that I was able to stay in touch with my heart and my instinct and go out to New York to let that be my remote location.  Yes, maybe there was some risk involved.  I wore my mask; I was Covid-19 negative, and I was determined to be fine.  Once I got to New York, I would visit him very protectively with our masks and our gloves, and I’d sit across the room, and then I’d go back to the house I was at.  It was a gift that I was able to see him at that time.  We had some good talks then about how he was feeling, and I think he was still being optimistic, and then once we got the project in the can there was maybe this psychic letting go. That’s when everything really started to reveal itself as this could be the end.  I did go back to see him when he was in hospice.  I think I was there the last two days that he really was able to really stay coherent.  He would close his eyes and be at peace and quiet for a minute, and he would finish a conversation and sort of close his eyes, not to sleep and not to go away, but I remember watching him going, “Look how peaceful he is,” and then he’d open his eyes and he’d remember that he is in this body that has been given a time limit of life, and he’s on his way out.  I’d watch the fear go back in his eyes.  At one point, he did say, “I’m so scared,” and I just held his hand, and I said, “I’m scared too.  Let’s be scared through this together.”  I don’t know how to navigate grief like that.  We are all going to be in a position at some point where we are going to be on the other side of the hand holding.  The wonderful thing is that we were able to have honest communication about our feelings.  I thanked him for everything that he has done for me and how he believed in my talent and creativity and our partnership.  I will always take that with me.  I waved my finger at him, and I said, “Listen.  Now, we wrote a series about a man talking to his deceased husband.  You’d better talk to me!”  So, we laughed about that.

Photo: AfterForever

You’ve done a lot of things in your career from Broadway to television, and of course, daytime fans know you best as Dr. Craig Wesley on DAYS.  How does the entire After Forever project stack up to you within all that you have done?

KEVIN:  Former DAYS casting director Fran Bascom, sought me out and offered me this 2-day role on Days of Our Lives, and those 2 days turned into 8 years, and unbeknownst to me at the time, the final 3 months of that contract of those 8 years, Michael Slade was brought in to write.  We didn’t cross paths at that point, but years later, when we did cross paths in New York, and then After Forever was born, that was that universal crossing point.  I am most proud of the fact that we were able create something fresh, and real, and personal to ourselves that we didn’t have to cater to any “powers that be” that had their vision and their tinkering, that they thought that it could be better in this way or that way.  Then for After Forever to gain such recognition, within the film festivals, and the Emmys, and then, just after Michael died, we won the GLAAD award for Special Recognition this year.  We don’t even fit into one of their categories!  They found a way to acknowledge this project.  If another Emmy happens again, that might be another one to put up on the shelf for After Forever that would be beautiful, and I couldn’t have done it without Michael.

For the Daytime Emmys this year, what category have you entered Riley’s Unforgettable School Project?

KEVIN:  We are not a series this year, we are a daytime fiction special, and the “Daytime Fiction Special” category is a special class.  It’s anything that’s digital in the construct of less than 40 minutes.  NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is being bombarded with so much content, they’re trying to find ways to put categories together.

Photo: JPI

So, now, when we last saw Days of Lives’ Dr. Craig Wesley, where was he? (Laughs)

KEVIN: (Laughs) He was in a flash from the past or something in the DOOL app’s Last Blast Reunion series. I had a fun time working with Patrika Darbo (Nancy) and Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), once again.

So, if they were to want Craig to come back to DAYS, would you be all for it?

KEVIN:  Hell yes!

Photo: JPI

Now, what story would you want to be told involving Craig? 

KEVIN:  When Craig was first on the canvas in Salem, there was a lot of mustache twirling and a lot of hand wringing.  He was always plotting; most of the time with Nancy.  It was kind of this high drama, evil villain storyline being told, but when the writers created an opportunity for us to be on after those first three months by bringing on Chloe without a father, there was something real about it.  It may have been told under the construct of soap opera storytelling, but there was a reality-based story about, “You have a daughter, and we are just now finding out about it?”  Then, finding a cure to her health was another realistic story, and finding out that Craig was her real father.  Anything that’s reality based is what I’m getting to.  I would welcome any job that brings me back and gives me an opportunity to dive into something real.

Photo: JPI

Would you welcome the opportunity to play a gay character on daytime; in a medium where there are very few represented in storylines?

KEVIN:  I’d have no problem with that.  Do you know anybody who is starting that?  Let’s do it!  (Laughs) First of all, there’s nothing to hide anymore.  There’s nothing to pretend you’re not anymore.  I would think that bringing in a storyline that deals with anything outside the norm that we are used to seeing would be interesting.  How many times can you retell a story?  How many times can you set the same story up with another couple?  So, why not be diverse and have a stylized story being told through the lens of a gay person.

Photo: AfterForever

In closing, so many go through life without acknowledging people who had an impact them.  We don’t give pats on the back, often enough, and especially in Hollywood, where people can be very self-involved.  You have already paid tribute to Michael Slade in our discussion, but what gift from him is your personal takeaway?

KEVIN:  The gift that Michael really gave to me is to remember to be kind to myself and to others, and to acknowledge and salute the person who is in front of us, because we don’t know when we will have, or if we will have, another moment to do that.

Now below, check out the trailer for Riley’s Unforgettable School Project.  Then let us know, what do you think of its concept? Kevin’s thoughts on the passing of his collaborator on the project, Michael Slade? And, do you hope DAYS brings back Dr. Craig Wesley? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
