DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Kassie DePaiva and Casey Moss Bring The Tears As Eve and JJ Learn Paige is Murdered! True O'Brien Shares Goodbye To Fans!

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Paige was found murdered, and it was the end of the line for her portrayer True O’Brien.  Paige is the second murder victim in the latest serial killer storyline on the NBC soap opera, the first being Serena Mason (Melissa Archer).

O’Brien took to her Twitteraccount this week and shared a heartfelt message to her fans as she ended her on-screen run, which actually ended for her some six months ago since DAYS tapes so far in advance. True had related: “Thanks everyone for all the love! On the bright side, some AMAZING and heart wrenching work is coming from @1CaseyMoss and @KassieDePaiva”

And it was Kassie DePaiva, who at the end of Wednesday’s episode had the moment of the day when Eve insisted on seeing her daughter’s lifeless body in the hospital morgue.  Eve is now a grief-stricken mother having no idea what to do next now that her daughter has been taken from her.   Later, she comes to see Justin (Wally Kurth) in the D.A. office and falls apart in his arms.   Earlier, in the episode a shell-shocked JJ (Casey Moss) had found Paige dead in the shower in her dorm room.

The drama should continue in the days ahead which will also provide plenty of angst, tears, and drama for Moss and DePaiva as they grapple with the ramifications, and their endless guilt over this young woman’s death.

So, what did you think of Kassie and Casey’s performance?   Will you miss True?  Looking forward to seeing what happens with JJ and Eve?  And, who do you think is the Necktie serial killer?  If all signs are making it looks like the guilty party is Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn), who would then be the next victim?  Share your thoughts below!

As powerful as both performances were, Casey Moss delivered a more believable performance for me than Kassie did in the final result.

In my opinion both Kassie and Casey delivered emmy worthy performances.

That’s very hard for Eve she loved Paige the highlight of her life but JJ he didn’t do anything to help he should’ve called to tell Eve but he didn’t so it was his own fault I hope he could be the next one to be killed off he shouldn’t be too attached to Paige and I want JJ to go and Jennifer and Abby

I thought JJ did a very poor job of showing his grief. I was surprised that he wasn’t as upset as I thought he should be. Very disappointing…as for Eve, I thought she did an excellent job.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Well Jill, please keep in mind, everyone shows grief not only at different times, but also in different ways. I don’t see JJ as the type of personality to breakdown into hysterical tears; I picture him to be more of the swallow that hurt and turn it into something else type of personality.

Definitely will miss True, she is a great talent, she really shinned in the last few months. I need to catch up on a few episodes to respond properly to the episodes revolving around Paige’s death. With that said, hoping Kassie submits herself for Lead or Supporting Actress next year!

Wow, I think you must be watching a different show than me because my opinion of True is the total opposite! LOL The poor girl couldn’t show emotion, rarely changed expressions, and basically walked through all her scenes. I kept hoping she’d get better, and I think there was one time she did show emotion, but I’m relieved she’s gone.

This killer story, if it gets rid of the totally useless characters, is a god-send! So far, so good!

Susan

I agree with SZima. The Paige character was lifeless when the character was alive.

I thought Paige would turn out to have a long lost twin Eve gave away at birth…Paige found out and has had secret off camera contact with the twin named Saige…Saige and Paige switched places…Paige left town and Saige pretending to be Paige was the one actually murdered…Anyway, you’d think with his ‘grandaughter’ murdered, Shane would come to town and help with the investigation???

Tom84

Totally on board for all/any of that to pan out. True O’Brien showed Paige to be much more than the ‘way to sweet to be interesting’ cersion we originally met. Paige was finally starting to be interesting!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, she was, Tom84. However, Paige always did have a sense of herself….of who she was…..very mature for her age. It is unfortunate to have things turn out the way they did. It is always the case when the writers attach complicated love stories to a character’s life. I would have loved to have seen the relationship between mother and daughter develop more extensively on the show.
Eve did a bad, bad thing. She is now paying the consequences of her actions. When flirting with fire, there is always the chance of getting burned.
I am so in tune with Eve right now…..her heart is no more. She is to be pitied and embraced, sorrow and all. A good ploy for the viewer to forgive what she did. Feeling sorry for her is one thing, but not blaming her for putting this in motion, is another.
I would like for Kassie to remain…I love and appreciate the actress. Perhaps, it took this tragedy to set her Eve on the right past….but, the cost is too much for me. The sacrifice too colossal. I get a pang in my gut each and every time a child is killed off.

Patrick
Patrick

as posts have “all” ready stated: the return of Frankie (Billy Warlock) WOULD create more mystery mayhem and feud between Eve and Jennifer…

I’m distraught for Eve’ : what if she had a child with Frankie that no one knows about…. and this would be the catalyst for one upping Jennifer… and these two just move ON. or at least have a mature feud .

I want for Eve to have her own child. NO… this isn’t right…

I read that was casting the role of Summer. Maybe True got the job and will return as a different character altogether! Then the new character could be JJ’s girlfriend! Can’t you see the look on JJ’s face the first time he lays eyes on Paige’s look-a-like?

serial killers targeting young women is not entertainment. reminds me of the music box killer in OLTL–cheap misognistic thrills. right up there with killing children during ratings sweeps.
doesn’t mean that death and grief don’t have a place in soaps. they could actually have a plot about low income families and show how at risk kids are when they are poor. or have a rich character get caught up in drugs and get killed getting their fix (or explore the rise in heroin use across all classes)
But where people got the idea that serial killers focused on young women is a legitimate plot twist should be sent to rewrite hell

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Some male characters will be killed off too…maybe Will and Bo???

James

Then you should check out Hollyoaks’ Glove Hand Killer storyline. Its victims have so far been male.

west virgina fan
west virgina fan

And let’s not have the killer end up being gay (I mean really how many of those are there–they are typically lumpy white heterosexual males). How about a fundementalist Christian who wants to kill all male adulterers? That would be an easy way of wiping out any male chaff on any show as there would be no one who would be immune!

Patrick

I haven’t even seen the eps yet… and I’m crying…powerful wave of emotions wont stop

What’s my Eve’s hold ?

does she have a lifeline… for her daughter Life was bigger than her own

will we see Eve fragile, taken apart, shell shock…

will the humane lost part of her surface

doggone it…

tip my hat to @Ray

it looks like , we will be getting two of the Donovan woman (Eve and Theresa) moving the audience forward.

Eve w/ Eduardo… possibly Justin… and I can hope… w/Rafe.
Theresa with help from Maggie… for ownership of Basic Black…

I will continue to laud two of the most versatile women in Serial… Kassie DePaiva and Jenn Lilly…. who continually captivate and generate story… whether you like them or not… they reel worthy script

I love these two women… I hope Shane and Kimberly come home for Eve and Paige.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, Patrick. Eve is falling apart as we speak. But, she’s a DONOVAN…..made of strong stuff. Picking herself up is the only way she can fortify herself for Paige’s sake. This is why she should immerse herself, neck deep, into finding the fiend that killed her precious baby. I hope the writers go that way. But, of course, Rafe has to be the hero. He’s back on the force….so, it stands to reason he has to be the super hero, yes? What say you?

“Oh” without doubt… Paige was her life

Kassie DePaiva’ best is here

Gmbenet

The only part I didn’t like was a line Eve said when Justin took her home. Eve said she couldn’t believe Paige would not be sitting on the couch waiting for her. If Paige would not have been murdered, she wouldn’t have been waiting for Eve at the apartment. Paige would hardly set foot in there unless she had because she never got over what Eve did with JJ! The writers goofed on that line! Paige and Eve never “made up”. That is what the writers should have focused on. It would have added more opportunity for Kassie DePavia to snag an Emmy nod. Maybe it will come later (the dialogue or in a monologue).

Harry

Kassie really proved herself to her critics. No one can play a grief stricken mother as well as she can. I also love her paired up with Wally Kurth.

Michael Smith

First off I have known for a longtime that Paige was going to die both actors did a fine Job on screen and Kassie was not Eve when she paid tribute to True O’Brien playing her daughter on Days. My mother told about Paige she got it from her Grandson Freddie Smith..none other than Sonny K.

Kelly

So is true that Bo will be killed off? If not, how are the writers going to deal with the fact that Peter Reckell apparently only agreed to come back for three months because he didn’t like the way Bo was written off last time.

This topic is so achingly real, I find it very hard to discuss it.
Kassie is so believable….she must be drawing this reality from personal experience…..straight from her heart….her gut. It is that painfully visceral.

She gave an emmy winning performance and won me over…i now like her as Eve!!!

Dylan

Everyone will say this, but just when Paige got interesting, she died. This is one example why such an accelerated taping schedule can backfire. But it will allow Kassie to do what she does best…rage filled grief. And if it gets her out of the teeny bopper storyline, even better! She needs to be in league with the heavy hitters in Salem! The show is firing on all cylinders now, and is living up to the hype! I cant wait to watch it each day!! Casey Moss will impress as always, as the stakes are high now for all the characters.

It was really well done. I miss Paige now. I thought it was stupid for the writers to have Eve kiss Justin on today’s episode, on the same day she discovered Paige was dead.

Llanviewer717
Llanviewer717

The kiss made absolute sense. When Eve is desperate, she acts out sexually. That’s how she got JJ into her bed in the first place. She’d just learned that she could not have the throat surgery and saw that as the end of her singing career. Now, she’s lost her daughter and feels totally alone in the world. She probably doesn’t know any other way to try to cope. Eve is a deep disturbed character.

Kassie DePaiva is fantastic in this role.

blake
blake

Yeah I get what you are saying, my response when she kissed Justin was that it was that it was a cheap shock for the audience. But today’s 9/11 episode was awesome. Eve got to show remorse and guilt so I was really happy to see that. i know they want to put Eve and Justin together but I want to see Eve dealing what what happened. I hope they keep writing scenes like this for Eve because Kassie can really bring it.

Tom84
Tom84

I totally agree, but I suppose on one hand, they’ve already made Eve turn to men when things are bad, with the whole pouncing on JJ thing when she found out she couldn’t sing. I didn’t like it, but I can’t say it came as a surprise either.

blake
blake

Well the good thing is Eve was much better on today’s episode 9/11. She showed more remorse and Kassie did a fantastic job. I really hope that they write things like this where she shows her true talent. This Eve I would like to see more of.

Johnny

Wow Days is getting good now, kassie Depaiva deserves a emmy next year. Her acting on yesterdays episode made me cry.

Oh wait til you see today’s episode, 9/11. She really knocked it out of the ballpark.

Tom Jenkins

Personally, I was heartbroken. I didn’t see this coming, and I thought maybe it was a hoax to throw off the killer that Paige had agreed to do with JJ’s assistance, especially since he didn’t seem as overtly emotionally as I expected.
The performance given by Kassie DePaiva ranks as one of her best. Not crazy about her character but felt deep empathy for her as was crying with her when she kept saying “Paige I’m sorry,, I’m sorry” and I kind of lost it.
I really thought it was a hoax, but well, guess I was wrong, JJ and Paige were a cute couple, I was rooting for them somehow to surmount the recent events and get back together.
I guess now, Eve will hate JJ even more after her initial grief and despise Jennifer even more than she already does….and I guess this time around we can’t blame her.
WOULDN’T it be a kick though if JJ entered a room smiling and Paige was there, and it had all been a set-up to throw Clyde off the scent…..if indeed it IS Clyde behind these murders….and I suspect it’s not even him, I suspect it’s Aiden.

Patrick
Patrick

I really don’t want it to be Aiden.

I mean… what a tribute to Daniel Cosgrove

what an actor he’s turned out to be… just top notch… nothing over the top… a quiet, present … romantic.. tender… loving… He’s Masculine and yummy to boot…

when he first started…. I posted… he has magnificent eyes… they just throw me…. ! LOL… he’s that present…

I want it to be Ben. or… as some have posted… what if it’s Andre ?

Loving Kassie and Casey and already missing True! Loving the characters and storylines! Loving the twists and turns! Loving all of ‘Days of our Lives!’

Daniel or Jennifer is the necktie strangler. Daniel never wears his ties, so Jennifer may have found a use for them!

The next murder is said to be controversial…Victor or Caroline is my guess and Bo will be too late!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

When Maggie and Victor were talking about Caroline and life, you kind of felt one of these three will be next…i still think its Will who is murderd and that is why Sami returns to Salem!!!

I found the reaction of JJ to be curiously understated. The shock and horror of finding the love of your life murdered was just not portrayed. There’s no way to know if this was the due to the actor’s choices or dictated by script or direction. Kassie DePaiva turned in an excellent and heart wrenching performance. Days is on fire and has gone from being my least favorite soap to my favorite.

damie

casey protrayed jj as more angry and shocked then grief and sorrow! jj found the body and his mind went straight to anger towards cylde! casey s best when jj s angry! he tore the salem pd and cylde and a new one for paige s murder! i cant wait to see more of jj s reaction in upcoming episodes! casey s been so good at having a explosive temper and in between he s been delivering cool subtle performances! he s also been awesome as knowing he s out of his league in taking on cyles drugpin business and scared shitless!
casey s the best young actor and future days leading man! good job casey!

RossCelebrityPR
RossCelebrityPR

Kassie DePaiva’s performance was truly gut-wrenching & heart-felt. You could feel her pain. That was one of the best acted scenes I’ve seen on DOOL’s in a while. She really tapped in some raw emotion. She’s a true veteran! Love her!
I think either Ben is the serial killer & is trying to frame Chad so he won’t ruin the chances of Ben & Abigail being together. Or, it’s possible Aiden may be the serial killer.
As far as True’s character, I’m sad to see her killed off. I really loved her and Casey Moss’ on-air chemistry. But, I won’t be missing her over-all on the show. I know the new writers will be adding some dimension and excitement into the existing roles. Hopefully, any new characters on the show will be brought to life by great storylines.

Margie
Margie

ICAM! Wow. KDP brought it.

Ray

This was another great show. It seems the pace is almost too fast. After JJ found Paige, why did he not reach out to Jennifer and Abigail? It would have been great to see him have a final “morgue” scene with Paige, but it might have been too similar to EJ and Sami. I hope the show lets her death play out in many ways, especially with Eve and Justin, Eve and JJ finally calling a truce, etc. The drug storyline is getting lost in the shuffle with Patch, Bo and the murders. As much as I hate to admit it, I have not missed Sonny and he has already been gone for two weeks.

The show’s lighting looks better every day. The production standard is much better than three weeks ago. I look forward to the show every day again, which is something I haven’t said since Sami and EJ left the show.

Give us more Kate!

Keep up the great work.

While I was never a fan of Paige, I thought the acting on all fronts in this storyline this past week has been stellar. Casey Moss and KDP were terrific. Just goes to show that when the writing challenges the actors as Paige’s death definitely does, these two performers can deliver and then some. For too long, DOOL has been too dull and uninspired, but the cast is energized and things are finally happening. It’s so much more fun to watch the show nowadays.

My question is WILL there be any more murders in Salem? I heard the rumor that Will Horton will be a victim. If Will is murdered by the Salem serial killer, it will most surely point the finger of guilt at Ben because Abigail has been confiding in Will. When Ben finds out and hears convention between Abigail and Will, he (Will) is toast!

As far as Paige’s death is concerned, I addressed that on the page that discusses Aiden, Paige and Bo. Don’t care to repeat myself here.

Gmbenet
Gmbenet

Regarding Paige’s death I will say this… Why hasn’t Theresa been told that Paige has been murdered? Theresa should have found out by now! Instead they have her running around trying to buy Basic Black!

Everybody in Salem knows that Theresa is Eve’s nearest kin in Sake. It is not realistic that no one would contact Theresa regarding Eve!

Gmbenet
Gmbenet

Even though Theresa is not the most mature or responsible person in Salem, she could have been told her sister needs her. I attribute this to short-sightedness on the part of the writers. There would still be time for Theresa to pursue buying Basic Black. (Although I think that idea is ridiculous and I hope that falls through because the notion is not believable even for a soap opera!)

Patrick
Patrick

I really think the writers are trying to mature Theresa and give her some growth…

I say: it’s about time

as i’m watching the best of daytime…

I watch scenes with Daniel, Eric, Brady, and Nicole… and have so little interest in them…

and these 4 were (doing their best) at carrying the show

so I can’t totally abandon their characters

everything else about DAYS is exciting

Gmbenet
Gmbenet

I believe the writers are trying to mature Theresa and I am all for that. But it should be done in a way that is plausible. Getting a job drawing designs would be plausible. One could even believe that Theresa is so excited about exploring her fashion design talents that she would come to work regularly, work hard and learn the fashion design business. But the idea of buying Basic Black or the idea of Nicole agreeing to partner Theresa is too farfetched.

Maybe the writers didn’t know how good Jen Lilley had been at portraying irresponsible and immature Theresa! Surely they couldn’t have come up with this ridiculous story if they had known.

I was never really a Paige fan however I do love Kassie I think she did a wonderful job as the grieving mother,actually speaking for myself I love Eve.I just feel so sorry for her .She always look so sad ,and if someone ever killed my daughter or son worse yet my grandchildren I would go after the sob myself.As far as Chad is concern no I don’t think he killed anyone ,it will be someone that you would never expect.Who knows maybe it is VIctors nephew I know he left town but how do we know for sure if he did or not.Now that is someone who is very capable of Murder we all know that.I hope Eve doesn’t get killed and I like her with Justin

this would a a surefire twosome

another strong family to feature

PS: I Love the potential of Eve and Justin

I read in a SOD issue that Adrienne is breaking things off with Lucas and wants another chance with Justin…

could Eve be the one to make all the difference…. for big time drama…

and before we even have time to soak this in… VI character falls for Adrienne?

I don’t know if you did catch the show yesterday or not but Adrienne and Justin are going to give it another try .Oh rats I was so hoping that Eve and him would become an item.Unfortunately I just don’t see that happening especially now that Adrienne is going back to Justin,ugh,Oh do you or anyone else here get the Pop channel?Well they are now showing same day episodes of Days every night from 8-9 pm so now if we miss an episode we can always watch it there.. I also saw that Days ratings are not doing to well,maybe this necktie killer story will pick it up somehow ,funny they should do another serial killer story because I have been thinking for months now they need something like the Salem Slasher story or the Salem Strangler and boy was I ever happy when they decided to do this because the shows need something to liven it up. I want to see more of Eve ,I have this sneaky feeling that she will be on a lot more now,Good because as far as I am concerned she is the best part of the show.

Mister Media
Mister Media

What if the reason that Justin is so eager to put Chad behind bars is that he, Justin, is the killer? It’s far-fetched but they can justify it somehow if they wanted to. Meanwhile he and Eve grow closer and closer, making the reveal that much more dramatic. Just a passing thought….

Mary SF
Mary SF

I don’t think it is far fetched I went on record on another thread that Justin was my gut feeling to be the killer. The killer has to be someone no one would suspect in a million years. It has to be a character that is central to the show, but whose long term potential is limited– Days lured WK from GH, and I doubt he switched shows just to be a two bit player– and Justin owns a lot ties– the only mystery if this is true is what turns Justin into a murderer and what is his motive? Of course just by guessing Justin this early could be he is just a red herring and in the end we will all be surprised by the real killer.

I thought Kassie was phenomenal; as I expected she would be.

I’m not a fan of any Devereaux character. And I find any scene where Casey has to express significant emotion to be horrible. His voice takes a pitch that is incredibly whiny & grating.

I’m hoping Eve channels all her fury over Paige’s murder and directs it at Jennifer, JJ & Saint Abigail.

There are other characters that I’d like to see the serial killer strike…Theresa, for instance isn’t believable as a person that could possibly be in charge of basic black… Really?

Kassie is one of the great actresses of the genre. If things had turned out differently I was certain she would have taken over from the great Erika Slezak as the matriarch of OLTL. Alas, was not meant to be.

I hope you’re right. But I dunno. I think that is what they want us to think and they will twist it and it will be perhaps Ben? Ben knew Paige from before they both arrived in Salem so there is some history there. I think he’s trying to set up Chad to get him out of the way and apparently he has no conscience.

well I sat and just cried my eyes out for Eve. Her acting was superb. I really hated to see True go. I wanted so badly for her and JJ to get back together. Please leave Nichole and Daniel alone. She deserves to be happy. I think the killer is either Clyde or the less obvious is that overbearing Justin. I wish Rafe would smack him. Mmmmmmm maybe it’s Aiden. That would be a good way for them to get rid of him leaving Hope available for Bo. So far I’m enjoying the story. I only wish it was two hours long so we could get an hour of show instead of a half an hour with all those stupid commercials. I love Days. Been watching since day 1

Okay I have at least two people I can think of who maybe the killer ,how about Ben we all know he has a mean tempter ,now get ready for this one Rafe,I know you are saying no way would Rafe ever kill someone,Hey they have had bad cops before and he to is such in a hurry to have Chad put in jail.also just a thought suppose the killer is a woman well any woman can go into a store and buy a tie,or perhaps it is someone that hates all woman as long as whoever it is doesn’t kill eve,, just a thought ,just do what I do try to look for clues for instance how some people talk I knew who the strangler was after a month by the way Jake talked,

I could be wrong it is only a guess,but we wont know anyway till November ,,,

I also have this strong feeling that Eve and Jen will become close.Jen will feel so bad for her it may take awhile for Eve to even consider Jen as a friend,but we all know that Jen can be nice if she wants to be,I wouldn’t be upset if they got rid of Jen .never liked her snooty attitude,like she is miss perfect makes me want to upchuck lol Also that story with Abby and Ben does absolutely nothing for me at all it is just so boring ,,, To be honest I would rather have Abby with Chad…

I think that Rafe is the killer hey who would suspect him so he is a cop big deal cops can kill someone just like everyone else ,and he seems to want put someone away really fast .Even Marlena acted like she was so afraid of him.He to me looks to be hiding something and check out his and Chads jacket.if I am right they are wearing the same jacket ,so whoever thought they might have seen Chad may have actually seen Rafe.just a thought ,

As I was watching the show today I could just feel Eves pain,I cried along with her .Kassie is such a great actress and I hope she stays on days for years to come. She has touched my heart with her performance today,, she made me wish that I could reach out and give Eve a big hug.

Oh my God it has ben and yes I spelled it that way for a reason =i love to use puns but I was half way right I did say either Ben or Rafe, of course it has to be Ben the guy has a bad temper and I know he would do anything to have Chad put away.I hope Abby isnt this stupid to go away with him,but my question is why kill Paige and try to kill Marlena,? What did she ever do to him.I hope they catch his sorry well you know soon.Cant wait to see Eves face when she see’s who the killer is ,to be honest the minute Ben pulled that box out from underneath his bed I knew right away there would be ties in there ,Imagine how Abby will feel when she finds out her husband is the killer .I wonder now what is going to happen we are not suppose to know anything until November,so who knows,,,,by the way everyone have a nice day

Oh no not again well I just heard that Days has let go of Eve.I am not a happy camper.Days is making a huge mistake,why do they keep getting rid of characters that I love? I was so hoping that Kassie would be on Days for a ,long time .This stinks,well Kassie if you should read this ,I am so sorry that you are leaving you are not only a wonderful actress and I know you have a beautiful singing voice to .Days should have never made you stop singing .Now the only song I am singing is the blues.I am a big fan ,love ya. a fan

If I could write to Kassie I would tell that I think it just stinks that Days is letting her go.Whatever happened with the story that Eve was going to drive Jennifer crazy?? I knew something was up when they never had her Eve doing anything or talking about it.She is one of the main reasons why I watched days.Bad idea letter her go.As I sat here today watching her at Paiges funeral and breaking down the way she did ,oh what the h-l I sat here and broke right down with her.I know what it feels like to lose someone .I lost my husband .That is besides the point I could feel Eve’s pain.I dont blame her one single bit for yelling like that what was she suppose to do? I wish that Days would just let her stay.Is this due to the new writers letting her go I say all of this is bs.I should have know once her daughter was killed Days was going to do this.Hey this is awful just so awful I so looked forward everyday to watch Kassie perform and Kassie you got a raw deal I loved you as Eve.Damn it Days why couldn’t you get rid of Jennifer or Ben ,

Kassie’s performance was indeed worthy of an award. As a mom of a beloved daughter, I cried buckets. I didn’t like the writers killing off Paige. True is precious.

I agree with you about Kassie.I just wish Days didn’t can her.I have daughter to so I could feel her pain.Call me silly but I felt so bad yesterday for Eve I wish I could have jumped into the tv screen and give her a hug,

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf Talk Kristen & Brady’s Twisted Relationship : The Mask, The Deception, The Sex

Last week on Days of our Lives, Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was able to get the man she craves in between the sheets.  So, just how did that happen when Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) had no idea she was alive?  Well … he still doesn’t, really.  You see, Kristen returned to Salem disguised as another ex flame of Brady’s, Nicole Walker (who everyone believed died in the warehouse explosion).  And Kristen has been parading around town donning an incredible likeness of Nicole’s face – via a prosthetic mask – and some other tricks to sound and look just like her!

Kristen’s goal is to infiltrate Salem, remind Brady of the love and passion they shared, take over DiMera Enterprises, and who knows what else!  And everyone who stands in her way, better watch out as we have seen! We are speaking to you (the late) Ted, and (once kidnapped) Kate, et al.

Fans of the NBC daytime drama series have followed the tortured relationship between Kristen and Brady for years and through many plots; Kristen was first played and brought to life by Eileen Davidson, and for well over a year now by Stacy Haiduk.  Not only has Haiduk reprised the role of a frustrated, vengeful Kristen, she is also playing at times multiple roles: the wacky and often misunderstood, Susan Banks, Kristen playing Susan, or Kristen pretending to be Sister Mary Moira.

As for Daytime Emmy winner, Eric Martsolf, this latest story arc puts him front and center as viewers watch to see if what Brady senses, and the clues, and the feelings he is having, bring him to the conclusion that he has been duped by Kristen, and that her horrendous scheme – pretending to be Nicole (Arianne Zucker), and dumping Nicole’s longtime love Eric (Greg Vaughan) to be with him have a result that is unexpected or catastrophic!

Michael Fairman TV sat down with Stacy and Eric for this conversation about: all the plot twists, and playing the drama and the humor of the situations they find themselves in as actors in a wild story that only head writer Ron Carlivati could pen and keep the audience on the edge of their seats in the process. Check out this oh-so-fun, direct, and enlightening chat with two of DAYS most shining stars.

Eric, what has it been like working in this part of your storyline; where there’s the character of Kristen in its many forms: Arianne Zucker playing “Nicole” (but it’s really Kristen), Kristen as Susan, and the real Kristen, etc?

ERIC:  It’s been a nightmare Michael.  (Laughs)  I don’t know who I’m sleeping with anymore.  I’m at the point where I go home at night, and I just tug on my wife’s cheek just to make sure that she is not my ex-girlfriend from high school.

When you first heard of this storyline, and that it was going to facilitate how Arianne was going to come back to the show… and that it was supposed to be Kristen in a Nicole Walker prosthetic mask with a voice alternator, what went through your mind?

ERIC:  I think in the back of Ron’s Carlivati’s (head writer, DAYS) mind, he was thinking to himself, “This dude started his soap career on Passions, he’s okay with this kind of thing,” and honestly, nothing surprises me anymore.  When you’re thrown into that supernatural, crazy reality, doesn’t-live-here sort of atmosphere for you first soap gig, you don’t sweat a mask and a voice modulator.  That’s just par for the course.  My biggest problem was the body thing … that Brady is not able to distinguish one body from the other, because I would as Eric.  My God, I know every inch of my wife’s body.  So, it’s difficult to get my head around that, but at the same time, I’m going with the whole “love is blind” thing here. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

(Laughs) I was going just going to say that Brady would absolutely know Kristen’s body from how passionate their relationship has been in the past, as well, he would Nicole’s body from his relationship with her.

ERIC:  Since Kristen did finally just succeed – let’s use the word in “seducing” him, and using her wonderful feminine wiles as only Kristen has to get Brady in to bed, there was also another twist.  What plays after that is that he notices the tattoo that’s been removed, and she plays it off as scarring from the fire.  What’s going through his mind as he is making love to Nicole is a “Kristen train”.  He can’t get Kristen out of his mind, and the guilt that he feels about that is horrendous.

Right! Brady is thinking: “Why am I feeling this when I am supposed to be with Nicole!?”

ERIC:  Right!  Brady has been waiting for a relationship for God knows how many years now – at least a successful one.  He is so eager to have this work, even though he has been concerned about how Eric (Greg Vaughan) would feel about this.  In Brady’s mind, Eric is done with Nicole.  He’s good.  He loves Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  This is fair game.  Brady and Nicole have always been close … they’ve been close before … so, for him, it’s, why not give it a fair try?   However, he finds himself now thinking about another woman the whole time.  That’s rough.

Courtesy/NBC

Do you think in the back of his mind, that this whole time, he possibly knew that “Nicole” was Kristen?

ERIC:  Well, you just have to wait.  There will be a reveal eventually, obviously, but until then, let the games play on.

So, once Brady and “Nicole” have sex, he keeps thinking about Kristen?

ERIC:  Constantly!  She just plagues his mind.  I think he’s realizing that his affection for Kristen is anything but dead and is very alive, and I think this is Kristen’s master plan from the very beginning.  She knows that she pervades his soul, and once she does reveal herself, I would guess he would probably be surprised, maybe a little angry, but in the end … you can’t deny what your heart and your body wants, right?

One of my favorite recent scenes had Brady half-naked and Kristen as Susan getting into his room, because she was looking for the MIA Nicole mask she so desperately needed.  She finds herself gawking and lusting after Brady under her disguise, and he tries to remove himself from the situation and says, “Susan, I’m going to get in the shower…”

ERIC:  Yeah! And, “It’s not going to happen, baby.”

What was that like doing that scene?

STACY:  I loved it!  I thought Eric was brilliant in it.  I watched it, and I thought, “Oh, my God!”  (Laughs) It is one of my all-time favorite scenes.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  Kristen is a tiger.

STACY:  She is a tiger.  She’s got a goal, and she is going to go after that.  She has obstacles that are going to come in-between her goal, but she will go after whatever she wants.

When Stacy comes in to Brady’s room as Susan, were you not laughing?

ERIC: No!  I thought she was hot. (Laughs)

STACY:  He did … he loved it.  You liked me, didn’t you baby? (Laughs)

ERIC:  I don’t think anybody can deny that Stacy Haiduk’s portrayal of Susan Banks is ridiculously good.  Everything from her delivery … to her facial expressions.  I think it is amazing.  I mean, it is corny, and it is fun, and soaps need characters like that once in a while to lighten the load of the heavy dialogue and the drama.  It’s a welcomed addition.  So, I love playing scenes with Susan.

Eric, you always have been able play the straight-man so well in comedic scenes with impeccable timing,

STACY:  You’re brilliant, Eric.

ERIC:  You guys are being very nice to me.

STACY:  You are.  I remember on the day how much fun we had, but then, seeing it back and the crap that I was giving you, and just the stuff you were giving back was so beautiful, and innocent, and so alive.  It was so funny.

Does Kristen think that now that she finally got Brady into bed that she won … that she got what she wanted … even if she had to don a “Nicole” mask to do it?

STACY:  Well, no, because she still can’t be really Kristen.  I think she is grateful that she gets to be with him.  That’s one of her biggest goals: to be with Brady and she wants to have him fall back in love with her again.  But for her, now it’s all about, “How do I reveal myself so that he doesn’t get scared away?”  That’s the toughest part for her.  Kristen’s love is so deep that it goes beyond this mask.  So, how is it going to be when he sees her?   Is he going to freak out?  What’s going to happen?

ERIC:  Did you think Kristen would be a little pissed off and think, “Oh my God.  He did go for Nicole?”

STACY:  Yes!  I do, because she’s like, “Finally, I got him!  But wait a minute … did I get him because I was Nicole … or because I was Kristen?”  As Kristen, she always believes there is something deeper between them and a deep connection.  That remains a driving force to her.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  That’s why I love these characters so much, because of you and the history of Kristen with Brady.  She’s always wanted him as much as he has wanted her.  She’s always wanted to be loved.

STACY:  Yes … and very much so.

ERIC:  Kristen had always wanted to be a part of the DiMera Empire, just as Brady has always wanted to be a part of the Kiriakis Empire, and they’ve always wanted love.  They’ve never had it.  They believe in the back of their minds that anything is attainable.  So, I can see why Kristen would just forgo the Nicole disguise and just go, “He wants me.”

STACY:  Kristen wants to believe that Brady knows it.  She says to herself, “He knows it’s me inside and behind the mask.  When he finds out, he will fall back in love with me.”

Now that she actually had sex with Brady, wouldn’t that make Kristen even more insatiable to be with him? Like, “I’ve got to have him!?”

STACY:  The fear is still .. what happens she takes this mask off?  She always says, “I’ll reveal myself, but I have to do it slowly when it is the right time.”  I think there is that built up frustration now for her, absolutely!

Arianne Zucker really has Stacy’s mannerisms down as Kristen.  It really comes into in scenes where “Nicole” goes off on someone or loses her temper.  Eric, you have worked with Arianne for years on this show.  What do you think about her performances in this storyline?

ERIC:  I have worked with Ari over the years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.  Ari did do her homework.  She did study Stacy’s tape, and she watched her mannerisms, and she took it very seriously.  I know that because she is a hard worker, as much as a goofball as she is, she does work hard, and she wanted it to be good.  I think my favorite parts were the Kristen meltdowns.  You have to understand though; Stacy and Ari get along very well!  They’re kind of two peas in a pod.  So, it wasn’t a big stretch for her to take on how Stacy would play those types of scenes.  They’re both animated, they’re both wild people by nature, and so, it was a good fit.  It was a smart idea from the writers.

STACY:  It was a good fit!

ERIC:  I’ve been out with the two of them, and it’s hard to tell the two of them apart. (Laughs)

STACY:  We are just like two cuddly bunnies.

ERIC:  They’re like flirting with each other, and hugging each other.  You find yourself thinking, “Are they going to start ordering the same food at the same time?  This is getting weird. (Laughs)

Courtesy/NBC

In the recent scene that aired; where Kristen as “Nicole” turns off the light while having sex with Brady, is she worried her plan will now go awry?

STACY:  Yes.  I think she is worried about her body because it is burned.  You know, how they take a tattoo off, and it’s as painful as can be.  Not that I’ve had that done personally.  I like my tats, but I hear it is painful.  So, in the storyline, the burn is that pain that she has and the tattoo. There’s a part of her that thinks,  she has to cover it up, and turn the lights down low.

ERIC:  “Nicole” is sleeping, and Brady is rubbing his hands over her shoulder and touching her body, and as he goes over the burn marks.  He sees a flash of the tattoo!  That is a pivotal moment when he starts to put some pieces together.   He thinks, “Woah! That’s exactly where that tattoo was.”  It’s a slow little rollercoaster ride.

Courtesy/NBC

In the past, Kristen then played by Eileen Davidson, drugged and raped Father Eric.  Stacy, did you ever see that story arc?  Literally the sex scene is playing on the screen at Kristen’s wedding to Brady and then all hell breaks loose.  This to say Kristen is notorious for the ways and the lengths she goes to get her men into bed.

STACY:  Yes! I saw her Eileen do those scenes.

ERIC:  You also saw how close Kristen and Brady were to their dream, to their happiness, their goal, which was they were going to marry each other.  Brady is looking upon his loved ones in this town and thinking, “I know what you all think of her, but I’m going to show you our love on this screen, and once you see the connection that we have here as a couple, you all are going to be convinced that we belong together as well.  This is the happiest day of my life,” and the screen comes up and it’s his brother banging Kristen instead.

Marlena (Deidre Hall) played the wrong DVD!

STACY:  It was so good.  See, I try to find as much info as I can on the character’s past, because all of the time I’m trying to find where these characters have been in their dark and twisted past.

Photo: JPI

ERIC:  You’re putting your own stamp on Kristen.  You got a direct call from DAYS casting department, didn’t you … when they were recasting the role?

STACY:  Yes.  You have to understand, I had two really separate characters to play when I was on Y&R.  One was a doctor, and one was this crazy passionate, wild, little minx.

ERIC:  I will say to find the wild and the beauty in one package is not easy in any town, yet alone Los Angeles.  I’m glad they called you, because you have that.  You have that villainous nature, but you also are able to show a vulnerable side to Kristen that is going to be a lot of fun and interesting to see.

Stacy is one of those people that will leap off of the screen at you and you will remember her.  She is one actress that will have fans talking about their work, like when you played crazy Patty Williams on Y&R.  The audience was on the edge of their seats going, “Oh, my God!  What is Patty going to do next?”

STACY:  I never knew what she was going to do!

Photo: JPI

Eric, has Stacy come to you at any point where she been overwhelmed by the task at hand; playing Susan while playing Kristen, etc, and the two of you have a moment where you work through some of the challenges of complex scenes  … and ones where she is playing multiple characters?

ERIC:  We’ve had many moments  to speak of.

STACY:  I always come into Eric’s room, and am like, “I’m scared!”

ERIC:  It’s funny you mention it.  We have had some very emotional scenes, and Stacy – who cares so damn much about this job and portraying this character correctly – that she gets a little overwhelmed, and the material that they give her is overwhelming for any anybody on any level.  I have looked at her in the eyes, and said, “You’ve got this gig.  You are this character.  You are knocking it out of the park.  Just do it.  Just be you.”   I can’t wait for people to see some of the stuff we have shot recently and have been doing.

Photo: JPI

Stacy, do you think Kristen can be redeemed? Many characters on daytime … and on DAYS … have done horrible things and later turned over a new leaf.

STACY:  The thing is that villains are bad and all that other crap, but they’ve got a lot of stuff going on inside and insecurities, and they’ve got a heart.  I’m sorry, the villain with a heart of gold, can be very  true.  I never see villains (and I play them a lot) as bad.  You have to find where it comes from … how far does this go … where did that little seed change … and what made them go into the dark, but also, where is the good?  You want to bring the good to it, too.

ERIC:  Let’s face it!  Star Wars is all about Darth Vader and how he became that because it’s intriguing.

Because of the pace in which DAYS tapes its episodes; do the two of you find time to run lines together before you go hit the set?

ERIC:  We are running out of time to run lines.  It’s pretty wild.  Funnily enough, I was recently filming a movie and I was so underwhelmed at the pace of everything.  I’ve gotten so accustomed to moving at this militant style, that as hard as it is, it is preferable to me now.  I almost like it because you don’t have time to overthink what you are going to do, and you end up getting more visceral and natural reactions to the material.  You can overthink a scene, and you can come to a wrong performance that way.  When you burn your fingers on a hot stove, that’s the most natural reaction you are going to get.  You can’t have ten minutes to think about how you are going to scream about that pain.

Photo: JPI

But, would you like the pace of shooting the show to be a bit slower?

STACY:  I would like to, but I do think sometimes just jumping in, and going and seeing what happens is great.  I love that.  I do appreciate that.

ERIC:  It’s scary.

STACY:  It is scary.  I would love if we would get to do a rehearsal and then two takes just to see, and then they can mix  together what happens.  Sometimes I am hard on myself as an actress.  I’ve always been.  It’s that jumping in when you only get to do one take.  You have to just give it everything you’ve got.

ERIC:  You can have a second take.  Want me to give you a little secret?  All you have to do is screw up your last line.

STACY:  I can’t do that.   I don’t even need it to be perfect because nothing is perfect.  It doesn’t matter what I’ve done if I sometimes don’t feel it.  I need to feel it when I’m on that set.  I need to feel something because when I shut down, I close myself off.  It’s like an athlete who has just got to  train as hard as they can to reach their goal.

ERIC:  You’re an Olympic swimmer!

STACY:  You’ve got to do it as hard as you can.  You practice, and you practice, and you practice, and you practice, so that when you come to that day, you do the best you can, but sometimes you are disappointed because you didn’t get that one last thing you had hoped for.

Courtesy/NBC

How do you view what happened to Eric with Kristen, who disguised as Nicole, tricked Brady into bed with her?  Some fans commented that that they thought it was akin to a rape.

ERIC:  No, I would disagree with that theory.  I believe there is a high degree of deception in this, but there is a willingness on behalf of Brady.  He’s not drugged.  He’s not being forced to do anything.  Deception, yes.  Rape, no.

Stacy, what do you think?

STACY:  Total deception.  There is no rape.  There is absolutely no rape.  These are willing participants; he just doesn’t know exactly who he is dealing with.

ERIC:  I appreciate the context of how somebody could construe that, and the seriousness of the matter.  I don’t think it really has a place in this particular storyline.

Do you guys think that Brady and Kristen are each other’s star-crossed lovers in a weird, twisted, bizarre way?

ERIC:  I don’t know.  I think they’re magnetism can’t be denied.  I think the hurdles that they’ve jumped through are astronomical.  Will they end up together in the end?  Who knows!  Will there ever be an end?  Who knows!  It’s definitely been one of, if not the most, in-depth relationships Brady has ever had.

Photo: JPI

And intense!

ERIC:  Yeah.  They’ve just gone through so much to be together, and when you do that, anybody who is married knows that, that’s where the good stuff is; the wars that you win together and the battles that you go through.  When you come out of the war, and you’re still together, that’s the bond.  That’s what lasts.

What would Kristen do if she couldn’t have Brady in the end?  Would she find a new obsession?  What if she could not nab her man?

STACY:  Wow!  Hmmm. (Laughs)  She’s going to get her man.  She wants her man.  She wouldn’t settle.  She’d keep fighting.  I would say to her, “Kristen, keep fighting the good fight.”

So, do you think Kristen will reveal herself to Brady sooner than later? Will Brady figure out what Kristen has been doing to get to him?  Will Brady turn Kristen away if he knew she was alive and back in action  … or would he fall back into her arms?

Daytime Emmys To Merge Younger Actor & Actress Category Into One As Gender-Inclusive Categories Are On The Rise

The upcoming 47th annual Daytime Emmys are already making some changes to key categories and specifically this one that affects daytime drama performers.  Word from Variety is that NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) is going to announce that they are combining the Younger Actor and Actress categories into one gender-neutral category

Not only will the Younger performer category be gender-inclusive, but network soap performances will be combined with digital drama series performances for the category.  Previously, for this past Daytime Emmys, NATAS had changed the Guest Performer in a Drama Series to be gender-inclusive.

This category was initially created in 1985 when it was called the Outstanding Ingenue and then from there tweaked into Outstanding Juvenile Female and Male, and more recently that morphed into the Younger Actor and Actress categories.

Former GH star Hayley Erin (Ex-Kiki) and former DAYS star, Kyle Pettis (Ex-Theo) will now be the last female and male to win the two separate categories with this new move for 2020.

Fans of film and TV have noticed that on several award shows on MTV: their Movie and TV Awards and their VMA’s, there are several gender-inclusive categories, as well as the Television Critics Association Awards who for instance doles out Outstanding Individual Achievement in Drama in comedy.
