Polar vortex to some extent. I bet many tuned in to watch Sami catch Abby with EJ. The fallout is the only interesting aspect of this story.

Everything has me glued to DAYS. Ever-y-thing. For starters, Blake Berris is effing phenomenal. First and foremost. His scenes from yesterday and today were so calm, cool and calculated. His character is such a snake, but he’s playing those upper-hand, overly confident overtones to absolute perfection. I love everything he does and makes every scene worth watching. When I saw the promo they showed at Day of Days with Nick attacking Gabi, I thought I’d hate the direction. They sure showed me. EJ and Abby are hot. I’m an EJami fan, but I have eyes. For whatever they are, and… Read more »

The show is continuing to showcase a new generation of actors. I think it is great to keep the Hortons and Bradys at the forefront, but I would love to see another core family introduced. I am hoping to see Eve Donavan bring a few kids with her to replace the hole left in the show since Chad, Gabi and the other younger generation have left. JJ, Abby and Theresa need friends their own age. I can’t wait to see Hope back in the middle of the action. I was thinking today how much I would love to see Belle… Read more »

Ray I agree with you, they should bring Alexa Havens as Belle Black, she would be great. Alexa is a terrific actress.

I think the ratings are going up because of EJabby! There is so much promotion for them! They have amazing chemistry together! And their shower scenes were superb! Fans are buzzing about them on twitter. People obviously like them a lot!

It is argued that sex sells. Anybody would have been in the scene and it would have been a hit. EJ is hot, not much to say about Abby and her acting skills. Firstly, you are asking people whats keeping them glued to Days and you have two naked people making love? The week was promoted as Sami arriving early to find Ej and Abby. This made some people who would not watch, see this bullshit, It was misleading. There was the Eric, Nicole and Daniel saga which was fun to watch. You seem to be promoting just one couple.… Read more »

I have to disagree here. I am glued to Day’s if Our Lives soley for Ejabby ! Sami and EJ never did it for me, even their supposed grief sex scene. Kate Mansi is doing a fantastic job, and her chemistry with James Scott is off the charts. I would always fast forward thru EJAMI scenes. when ejabby isn’t on all the scenes drag withe the exception of Nick’s storyline . Funny from the looks of things Nick may actually replace Stefano as Salem’s resident villain. Only when Stefano is gone for good of course.

Go EJabby! I love that EJabby shower sex was the promo and main story and brought in the best demos in almost 3 years. It’s not surprising since they are by far the hottest, sexiest and most talked about soap couple in a long time!

Days has the best stories the best actors and it moves at a nice pace. I just love it every day. The other shows are good too but not as good as Days

Two words “Lorraine Broderick,” You have to credit the great writing and great cast. DAYS is my favorite soap on the air right now…I love GH, but DAYS remains grounded and built with deep character driven storylines. Seriously, no show does family as good as DSYS anymore either…not in daytime, and in Primetime the only show that beats DAYS in family focus is Parenthood! In my opinion DAYS outshines all soaps currently.

The ratings SHOULD be:

1. DAYS
2. GH
3. B&B
4. Y&R

bravo days of our lives, The show is on fire right now. Terrific acting, and wonderful storylines. I still want bo brady back, I hope that peter reckell comes back, as Bo brady. Looking forward to kassie depaiva as eve donovan, this summer. She is a pretty lady, and that woman can act. Also cannot wait until eileen davidson comes back as kristen dimera this summer. this will be a storyline arc. I am so happy, that days of our lives, got renewed until 2016.

Days is the best. I’m a newish viewer, really just watching for the past year, and I’m VERY VERY happy I tuned in. OLTL and AMC were my longtime favorites – AMC for me since Day 1, and I missed them badly when ABC killed them. I followed them online and liked the reboots, but I’d also picked up DOOL as well. I tried Y&R and that show is just awful, terrible, depressing to watch. I still try with GH but……I can barely watch it. It’s only “better” than Y&R because I have some history with the show. But Days!… Read more »

It seems the Nielsen ratings are finally taking into count all the other ways people watch TV these day, not not just by TV..
I have not watched my soaps on TV ever since they became available on the internet, a long time ago..
Now, Nielsen ratings is counting me ..

The Ej and Abby scenes have made me want to come back for more not just the sex – which wasn’t bad either 🙂 , but for the ying and yang chemistry and dialogue. I want to see their relationship play out for awhile even if it does not last forever. Also, like Nicole and Eric, but I hope that they spice up their relationship and interaction more. The Kate and Nick scenes were very good also. Hope is always good and look forward to her having a storyline.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
