Days of our Lives First Three Episodes By Writing Regime Of Griffith & Higley! What Were Your Impressions?

Courtesy/NBC

Last week, Days of our Lives kicked-off it’s latest revitalization under the writing regime of Josh Griffith and Dena Higley! Viewers saw their first three episodes play out Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

While there is still so much more to watch and see before doing a full critique, as the writers first have to get out of the last regimes stories, fans were commenting on some of the changes they noticed, or did not notice, over the last several days on social media and message boards.

It seemed clear, especially from Thursday and Friday’s episode that the series was giving long standing super couple: John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) a story.  John is headed back to the ISA, which seems to foretell he will have something to do with bringing Bo (Peter Reckell) back to Salem, or a bigger umbrella story.  We know that come later this week, Serena played by Melissa Archer, will be the first victim of the new serial killer storyline, as well.

It was also clear that long time fan favorite and DAYS icon, Kristian Alfonso (Hope) will be front and center in a story with plenty of romantic entanglements! Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove) is keeping some very dangerous secrets from Hope.  She has clearly now given her heart to him.

Meanwhile, the name “Bo Brady” was brought up for the first time in a long time in Salem by many characters last week including: Victor (John Aniston) and Caroline (Peggy McCay), Bo’s bio-parents, who also shared scenes at Caroline’s hospital bed.

But there seems to be another strong, undeniable suitor for the beautiful Hope and that is Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). Rafe is going back to work at the Salem PD with an emphasis on bringing down Clyde Weston (James Read).  Weston beat the crap out of Aiden Jennings, and threatened Hope, Ciara, and Aiden’s son, Chase in the process.  In the Friday cliffhanger, Hope takes Aiden home to tend to his wounds and to comfort him, and to share her bed with her.  This was a big step for Hope, since this was the bed she shared with Bo.  When Hope falls asleep, Aiden slips out and meets Clyde, promising he’ll never report the guy to the cops for what he did.  Aiden privately vows he’ll deal with Clyde … but what is the info and secret he has on the guy?  What else is Aiden hiding?

Elsewhere, JJ (Casey Moss) is trying to get the goods for the DEA to put an end to Kyle’s drug dealing and to save Paige (True O’Brien) from the guy.  Meanwhile, Eve (Kassie DePaiva) has planted a bug in Jennifer’s (Melissa Reeves) home and hears JJ’s plan to put a stop to Kyle’s crimes, because he reveals to Jen that he knows Paige still loves him.  Eve is apoplectic!  And what is up with Victor and Dr. Salinas? Victor is mysteriously asking for a progress report.  He is fit-to-be-tied with the news he gets.

Longer two-person scenes, mainstay characters and beloved couples being focused upon, seem to be the order of the day on quick glance.   So, what were your impressions of the the last three episodes of DAYS under head scribes: Griffith and Higley?  Do you think it looks very promising for long time DAYS fans as we head into a big week that sees the first major return … that of Stephen Nichols (Patch)?  Notice any differences?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I love it! Romance, mystery, suspense, action. Soapy goodness.

I may be the only one, but I loved the fight scene with Aiden and Clyde. Usually fight scenes on soaps are cheesy (Victor punching anyone on Y&R ), but I thought this scene was executed very well. I would like to see Aiden take out Clyde for threatening his family, and just because Clyde is scum. Kudos to James Read. Clyde is loathsome.

I agree, it was an excellent fight scene.
James Read as Clyde is the best soap villian I’ve seen in ages. I hope Days keeps him for a long time.

Tom Jenkins

I agree as well, the fight scene was at least believable and it didn’t seem like they used stunt doubles, and if they did it was pretty seamless.
I really want Clyde to get what’s coming to him so James Read must be a pretty skilled actor to make me hate Clyde so much….

I agree with your comments. I loved the scenes with Victor/Maggie and Victor/Caroline. I can see a HUGE difference in the dialogue. I am not a huge fan of John and Marlena’s (as a couple), but at least their scenes weren’t forced and sappy. Deidra acted like the Marlena we loved in the 80s and 90s. My goal is to see Theresa be redeemed and become a legimate obstacle for Abigail and Chad. I think that sounds like the equivalent of Sami/EJ/Nicole.

Ray
Guest
Ray

May I also say how great it was seeing Hope’s bedroom and outside her house again?

Kelly
Guest

The only way that Theresa can ever be redeemed is for her to publicly admit and take responsibility for all the harm she did. Theresa also have to stop trying to force herself on Brady; accept the fact that he does not love and/or want her.

I enjoyed this fight scene also. And, I also would have liked to see Aiden take out Clyde. I’ve been a Days fan for only 4 yrs, so all this Bo/Hope super couple excitement means nothing to me. If anything, Bo is Hope’s past, and Aiden should have been her future. Rafe is a great character, but I don’t see Hope & Rafe as a long-term couple. I read on another site that a lot of this character cutting has to do with new union rules about pay which has forced Days to clean house to meet its budget goals.… Read more »

You’re so right about the great fight scene between Aiden and Clyde. James Read and Daniel Cosgrove are terrific actors. I’d love it if there was a layer of Aiden that hasn’t been revealed yet and he would get down and dirty to take down that scum Clyde for threatening his family.

I’ve only watch this show for a little over a year. I don’t know anything about Bo and Hope. I really enjoy Hope and Aiden. They are so cute together.

Half of the cast has to be eliminated on Days. Yet they insist on bringing in new characters. The idea of bringing in my youth to this show is not a good idea. Youth centered storylines always end up with the same tired plot devices, i.e, get them into bed, get pregnant, trap them into marriage blah blah blah…..i like the idea of the serial killer plot device. Those are fun normally. But let’s face it, the “love” story of John and Marlena is so tired. He wants it, then he doesn’t want it. She wants it but can’t forgive… Read more »

Cast turnover is nothing new. Vets can’t carry the show alone and there won’t be any of them if there are no new characters coming in over the years to settle down long-term.

Well, I have respect for long-time viewers, I am relatively new, just under two years. But I feel like suddenly there won’t be a storyline involving Will, Sonny, Derrick or Paul – it just seems like there’s this abrupt shift. I don’t dislike the characters of Marlene and John, but geez these are not kids, settle down already. Also, I have admiration for older actors, but Hospital scenes involving Victor with his old love are only compelling (albeit sweet) to a degree. Are the new writers going to do anything to resolve the Sonny / Paul / Will / Derrick… Read more »

Derrick is/was a recurring character. They’re leaving the door open for Freddie Smith’s return. Christopher Sean recently said he is still taping. Will might be a victim of the serial killer or actor Guy Wilson will be replaced.

Drake is only 61! You must be under 40 to think that there cannot be love or romance over 50! Look at Maggie and Victor & Doug and Julie. There’s lots to do with the core characters instead of all these newbies.

When Josh Griffith and Dena Higley’s material first aired on Wednesday, August 19, 2015, it felt like an automatic change to Days of Our Lives. The scenes were written in greater, more character-driven quality, and they even did less in the episodes in terms of who appeared, resulting in longer conversations between the characters. The rich use of history is slowly returning, and it’s already erasing the mess that the previous writers brought to the show during their tenure. If this is a sign of what’s to come, then we are in for something truly spectacular. I cannot wait to… Read more »

totally, with you, Scott. Wednesday and Thursday the episodes were tight, and scenes were relatively strong, full substance. I need to watch Friday’s episode. and, like you, I am so eager for the months proceeding the 50th. even, the scene with Paige and Kyle in his pad with JJ hiding was full of push/pull of the characters wants. The new writing team, or Josh, now as it were, is onward to making DAYS a winner for best daytime 2016, I see it and believe it. GH is definitely out of the running for that category.

I often agree with your thoughts on this site, Scott (ATWT Fan). I agree here, too. With my (our?!) beloved ATWT gone, DAYS seems to fit the bill for me as my soap home in recent years. Salem is not perfect but I do enjoy visiting day to day. And the shift in writers bodes well, I think.

I posted this on an earlier article (didn’t know this one was going to appear) LOL… Even though I’m looking forward to the 50th anniversary and the return of Patch and Bo and all the others, today’s writing (Fri, Aug 22) showed that Josh and Dena are getting back to the roots…..I know a lot of people crave the excitement and adventure of serial killings and drug dealers and crazy Clyde, but I really enjoyed the tender moments today between Victor and Caroline, Maggie and Caroline…Marlena and John….the dance…these scenes pulled at my heartstrings and dare I say, I shedded… Read more »

And I completely agreed with you in the earlier article, lol. This episode pulled at the heartstrings in a way I have not seen on DAYS in a long, long time. Victor and Caroline – OMG, I was bawling! John asking Marlena to dance .. this kind of romance is what has been lacking. DAYS’ idea of romance has been, “show them in bed”. Nuh-uh! We want to see them on a romantic date, dinner, dancing, just like was shown on Friday, and I’m hoping this kind of thing is what’s n store for the other couples as well.

It’s been very good! After that horrible sendoff for Sonny Tuesday, it felt like a completely different show Wednesday, the 1st day the new writers material aired!! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord & pass the ammunition. Longer scenes, greater depth, romance!! Is this the same show?? What was Y&R thinking letting Josh Griffith resign over Jill Farren Phelps? They should’ve kept him & ejected her. For the 1st time in a year I actually enjoyed JJ & Paige’s scenes-esp when she snapped out of it & helped him escape Kyle’s apt. Since the day Clyde Weston has stepped into Salem I’ve… Read more »

This is the honest-to-God truth – normally I watch the 1st half hour of Days and then, bored senseless, switch over to The Bold And The Beautiful. On Wednesday, completely unaware of the writing switch, I felt compelled to stick with Days for its second half. I did the same thing on Thursday and Friday. The longer scenes and extended dialogue drew me in. Having now learned about the new writers, I’m looking forward to seeing more.

It was fantastic watching my beloved Days come back to life. The longer scenes had more depth and greater flow than they’ve had in the last 3 years. The sound effects, lighting and the added music enhanced every detail of the J&M scenes. I’m looking forward to seeing what Dena & Josh have up their sleeves. As long as Doc isn’t a serial killer again and her & John get the much longed for reunion, I think I’m going to be one very happy fan!

Considering they had so much to fix,I thought the improvement was going to be gradual. It was hard to imagine how exactly they were going to implement major changes in a timely fashion without it looking a little awkward. However,[so far] this has proved to be the most profound and graceful turnaround any show has ever taken. Instead of back tracking, writing apologetically or piling on explanations the writers and tptb are moving forward by concentrating on the things that made Days shine at its best; Family, TRUE love, high drama the complexities of all kinds of relationships, and the… Read more »

The difference is literally night & day. I loved the scenes on Hope’s porch. When I heard all the dialogue and saw the longer scenes I had memories of yesteryear when soaps were grand. It made me jealous as a GH viewer to see writers get that that’s what fans want. I can only hope GH’s new team that will start airing their shows next month follows suit!! If DAYS continues on this path they will be the best soap of the remaining. Hopefully the ratings will follow.

Inasmuch as I hate bloody and violent encounters of any kind, yes, the fight may have been pretty realistic, but, the end result makes Aiden look like a fool and loser. I am not talking about losing the physical fight here….which I find ridiculous anyway….. I am referring to the fact that Aiden is supposedly a first-rate, tough lawyer……he ceded to Clyde’s mental fight, which infuriates me….no way could a man with such tenure give into this creep. Aiden’s cowering to this hillbilly, by tucking his tail between his legs and then covering the ‘incident’ up is not digestible for… Read more »

Excellent commentary, Michelle. And, I truly see what YOU see on Days, lately. I have only been watching for seven years, but I always caught a glimpse here and there at my grandmother’s, growing up. I love Days, so I am finding it gratifying that plot lines are moving, as you say, in a timely fashion….that is, not dragging. I was away for three weeks and, it seems, that Days is the only soap that has moved in a steady direction. I am still catching up. But, has Rafe fallen for Hope? It appears that way to me….then again, I… Read more »

I was over the moon happy. Finally seeing John and Marlena together, having a real conversation about their relationship was awesome. I have never understood how you could have the “Queen of Daytime” on your show and not use her amazing talent more. I hope this means old school romance and intrigue. I’m hopeful for what’s to come.

Marlena referring to Julie and Doug as role models was a step in the right direction. The previous regime at times made them(especially Julie) as the town joke. The Hayes and their characters are finally getting the respect they deserve.

As I watched Hope clean the blood off Aiden’s face I understood and related to her love for him more than I ever did with all the so called “hot” sex scenes soaps rely on to “convey” love. I mean when she asked him to share her bed at home and he then used the same cloth to wipe her tears– I was a puddle and in soap viewer heaven. Really guys it that simple– sincere, honest emotion, peppered with a dash of mystery and a couple doses of humor and I’m a happy camper.

I have been smitten w/Aiden anyway, but those scenes last w/Hope-just WOW!!! I hear he is on his way out. Not happy if so. I’m such a fan of the new Chad. I think his acting is stellar.

It is too soon to give a full critique. Except for the Jarlena scenes it was basically a continuation of what was before. As old stories are wrapped up, new stories will be introduced. But all we can do right now is speculate how the new stories will unfold. Let’s give it more time before giving a full critique. However, regarding an old story, I am ready for the JJ-Paige to end – the sooner the better. That story was ruined when JJ slept with Paige’s mother. There is no going back!

Also enjoyed the plans for the Bicentennial and the Chad-Serena scenes. Intrigued by Aiden’s secret. Is he working for Stefano? Jarlena is always good, as are Doug and Julie. Believed the hype that Xander would be killed off! Now believe he could be the killer! Old stories I don’t like are JJ and Chad-Abigail-Ben. Those stories cannot wrap too soon for me!

I stopped watching before because I didn’t recognize the show any longer but the last 3 days were so exciting I loved to see romantic scene ‘s between john & marlena and it was good as the writers are hinting of bo ‘s return I know that he would never abandoned his family I hate how the show portrayed him because him and hope belong together and I’m once again a fan of days.

I have to say I enjoyed the past few episodes!! I Loved the John and Marlena scenes. I also liked the Aiden/Clyde scenes. I’m intrigued about the Victor/Caroline/Maggie stuff. I love Victor and Maggie. I hope they don’t screw up what they have. I also thought the characters were more realistic and natural. I also loved seeing Bo and Hope’s house set again! And it was nice to get a little realistic stuff again like bugs chirping to cars passing. That little stuff makes things more believable!

Hi Jim. Love your posts! I disagree that it kills the suspense. Back in 03 when they did the Faux Killer, it was announced pretty much each week who would be “killed” and that made people tune in. In this day and age, I dont know why soaps think that surprises should be kept secret!! These shows are desperate for viewers. If I know an exciting story is coming, I will tune in. Otherwise, I might miss it as I do not watch every day. True surprises on soaps are very few and far between, so announce them! Promote them,… Read more »

Melissa so should have been cast as Sarah Horton, or Cassie Brady, or someone the audience and characters have a connection to. Archer was 21, and thrust into One Life to Live as the daughter of Grande Dame Victoria Lord! Thats a tall order, and ahe delivered.

I do enjoy the writing style of the new team, and the scene editing changes that have come with it. It’s nice to see the longer conversations, and not the chop, chop, chop too common before.

I started watching Days for the WilSon story line. Whether I stay a Days watcher will depend on how Paul and Will are treated. If Will is one of the serial killer’s victims then I doubt that I will keep watching.

Days of our Lives Returns To Production After Temporary Halt Amid COVID-19

UPDATED:  According to Deadline  the cast and crew of NBC’s Days of our Lives will actually be returning tomorrow, October 20th to begin taping ahead of schedule after a positive Covid-19 test shut production down originally scheduled for two weeks.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.
