DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

Photo: JPI

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

LOVE IT!!! And I like that so many different characters are involved in the storyline. Also, I took a drink every time I heard “Grandma was possessed by the Devil” and got plastered (just kidding).

Great for DH fans, but if you are a fan of any other iconic duo on the show you are constantly waiting for a story. I prefer the drama/angst stories that the actors that play Patch & Kayla do better than anyone, but sadly they continually get treated like a step child and aren’t even allowed to have a child of their own on scene. I don’t like camp stories especially when in over abundance. Will sit show out til winter beginning of year before seeing if its worth picking up again; maybe by then the possession, Bonnie/Calista, Duke the… Read more »

Loves it! I’m SO excited for this storyline. However, Peacock has NOT released episodes from Monday 9/20, Tuesday 9/21!!!!!!! What’s the deal?????? I’m waiting to see these episodes!!!! Peacock get with it and release the episodes already!

Nevermind, I see now that Season 57 started and that’s where the missing episodes are. I thought the show was preempted or something strange was going on with Peacock. My error. New Season.
I can’t wait to see these fabulous episodes. I love this idea of the second instalment of MARDEVIL’s possession storyline. Bring it! How much fun for Deidre Hall to play!!! and Bill Haynes, too! Let Salem get weird now, LOVES IT!

I’m here for this story as long as it’s short and done well. Even though it’s probably the most insane story daytime has ever done (tied with Casey the Alien on GH), it can be really fun. But I really hope it doesn’t drag on too long, because Ron C. has a penchant for writing stories that overstay their welcome (Fluke, anyone?). And especially with this, if John takes months to figure out that Marlena is possessed again, it’ll be ridiculous given the fact that he KNOWS it can happen.

I’m not hating it! I’m glad Doug will be alright and think that Bill Hayes is doing a great job. I imagine he had a lot of fun doing his scenes. I’m happy to see Doug & Julie front burner again.

when I heard Dool was doing this storyline again, I rejoice, why? because I knew RC would hijack someones original story and spin his version and then I rejoiced again because thank GOD, he’s not writing over at GH with this kind of crap. Thankyou God, and sorry Dool fan.

Cold water? Yeah, good luck finding that down here in Hell! Favorite?? Honestly, I don’t think Days will ever do better than the big “adventure” storylines of the 80s & 90s. Sadly, the budget just isn’t there for those anymore. The recent Peacock mini-spinoff was probably the closest they got to that. Even though the “location” shoots were all fake, and they had to do the entire storyline in 5 days, so that didn’t allow for the epic plot that such a storyline would have had back in the 80s. Other than that…. well, I’m admittedly biased, but I’m one… Read more »

I’m excited for it!! I was to young for the original although I remember glimpses of it when my mom was watching it.. I’m excited to see what they do! I love the new Johnny too and Allie and Chanel! I agree there should be more Kayla and Steve though.., but she’s getting more time being the doctor it seems maybe they will get involved with the possession and have something to do lol

I would have thought they would have picked a less stronger person than Marlena but guess they wanted to use her again to keep the story going the same.

But this idea that I would live in a digital voice recorder, an iPad, or a white noise machine…. well that’s a bit much!

I’m the Devil, not a computer virus, for Hell’s sake!

I guess you’re tired of this “traumatic drama”, too, Wendy? I was sort of okay at first, since I was about nine years old the first time Satan “lived” in Marlena. I don’t remember—-I guess I wasn’t allowed to watch those eps with Satan as the star.
But, I’m already tired of it.
I don’t like inconsistencies—the fact that Marlena , as the Devil, peeks into the Chapel, is off base. I always thought he would burn if he even took a small breath of the Church’s Holy air.

Please end this possession storyline as quickly as possible!! Why was it ever revisited? With all the talented writers available and the many amazing storylines that could be developed and produced, it is surprising that this ‘old’ idea has resurfaced!!
Days of Our Lives has been a part of my daytime viewing since Another World wrapped, which was about the time when the first possession DOOL storyline began to air…I was not impressed then and that has not changed this time around!

With Covid decimating our social and emotional lives we could use some uplifting storylines…please!

Satan

Doug’s getting more airtime than he’s had in decades, Johnny is launching a film career, and I’m going to help Ben & Ciara have a little baby. Oh, and soon I will make sure that Lani knows the truth about who her mama is.

How much more “uplifting” do you want from me?

So very disappointed in the devil possession story line in Days of Our Lives….I have tried to watch it, but I give up, it is an insult to everyone who watches intelligence! I’m sure you are at an all time low of viewers! Please get some new writers if this is the best the current ones can do. Absolutely insulting to the viewers…….do you think your viewing audience is 12 years old? Please, you can do better I hope…..if not go somewhere else with the stupid storyline!!! Will not be a viewer as long as this infantile “so SCARY !!!!”… Read more »

I hate this making marlena bring possessed by devil again. It’s ridiculous. They need to get back to the other people and stop this craziness. I’m going to stop watching because it bothers me big time. I’m a Christian and I don’t want to watch something like this. I hope it’s over with soon or I’ll be tning in on some other shoe.

“Several people have said the same thing”…. Yeah, and you can bet your soul that a lot of those “several people” have the same IP address. Am I right, moderators?? There has been a lot of stupid crap on this show in recent years. Masks… doppelgangers… recasts who bear ZERO resemblance to the characters they’re supposed to be….serial killers who are now supposed to be romantic leads, and characters who are completely absent from the scene when their loved ones are in a serious crisis. That’s all well and good apparently, but when I decide to pay a visit to… Read more »

You mean “realistic” storylines like some bug-eyed freak showing up out of nowhere, claiming to be a woman who disappeared in 1989, but looking NOTHING like her, and having a son who spends most of his time trying to get straight dudes to sleep with him? Or a guy with a brain chip in his head that makes him believe he’s the town’s long dead Mafioso Godfather? Or a mad scientist who brings half a dozen or so people back from the dead with some serum, stashes them in some warehouse in Nashville… and when that warehouse burns down, they… Read more »

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
