DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Melanie and Brady Share Heart-tugging Goodbye As Molly Burnett Exits NBC Soap Opera!

Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, pulled at the heartstrings as Melanie (Molly Burnett) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) shared an emotional farewell, after Melanie is basically forced to leave Salem thanks to Theresa (Jen Lilley) and wanting to give Brady time with his newly found son, Tate.

The final moments were beautifully played by Daytime Emmy winner Eric Martsolf and Molly Burnett, who wrapped up her on-screen return after a six-month return to the NBC soap opera. Throughout the rest of the episode, Melanie shed some tears saying goodbye to her father Daniel (Shawn Christian), Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and grandmother Maggie (Suzanne Rogers).

Burnett tweeted to all her fans and followers at the conclusion of yesterday’s DAYS episode: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me come into your living rooms and cause a little trouble the last 6 months. Days will always be my first home and I’m so thankful for everyone there, and all of you!! And I can’t wait to share what’s next!”

What did you think of the final scenes between Melanie and Brady? Sad to see that Molly Burnett go? Of course, since DAYS tapes six months ahead, Burnett wrapped at DAYS some time ago.  Share your thoughts below!

I wish Molly didn’t leave. Wish she would return for longer!

I agree with you Mo, Molly Burnett is a wonderful actress. I am going to miss her so much. Molly Burnett only signed a 6 month contract. Don’t worry Mo, she will be back in the future.

I love the actress and character, but these scenes were ridiculous and poorly written. The premise was foolish and all the emotions drug on and on throughout endless goodbyes.

I agree, I saw her scenes with Brady yesterday and I thought “didn’t she leave Friday?”

I agree with Anne, in all actuality no one is so “self-sacrificing” that they would relinquish Brady so easily or any beloved person. There were ways that they could have worked out visitation rights and all that jazz. Theresa isn’t really “holding all the cards” unless they allow her to.

I quite frankly don’t get the excitement over the Melanie character. She is quirky and not always in a good way. I have to say she acted the hell out of the goodbye scenes but I just don’t get the hoopla over her. Very glad they are moving on without her and now I get to dance in aerobic bliss over the departure of Serena and Xander. I can’t wait for both of those pouty petes to leave the scenery. Can they please take whiny crybaby Eric with them? Everytime I see him I can hear him as a child… Read more »

I am going to miss Melanie even though she often needed to center herself so she wasn’t coming off so flakey, and who I always wanted to sit her down and brush her hair. Melanie was good FOR Brady, something the self-destructive Theresa is not, and without a personality/soul transplant never will be.

I wish the actress the best, but damn but I wish she wasn’t leaving the show.

Very well said. I wish Melanie had recorded her final conversation with Theresa so that Brady could use it in his fight for custody of Tate. Theresa is nothing but a selfish, hateful user. I pity baby Tate’s future with her.

Best of luck to Molly Burnett.

I really like Molly and on occasion Melanie, but this return has been awful! From lame, uninspired and contrived start to sappy, forced and rushed middle (her romance with Brady that never should have been) to ridiculous and unbelievable finish. She should have been around to cause trouble and raise a little hell post Sami exit, not stick her nose in everyone’s business and develop an unrealistic romance with a totally mismatched Brady. It was good she helped move the Kristen story along even while the actress wasn’t on screen, but anyone could have done that. I have been very… Read more »

I am going to miss Melanie (and Molly). Yes, she had a loosey, goosey acting style that seemed to make audiences choose sides, but I actually loved it. It felt sort of like she was doing improv most of the time, which is sometimes a relief with some of her co-workers line readings. And while I wasn’t initially on board with her relationship with Brady, I came to really like it and wished there would have been more time to explore it.

Me too, though if it was not meant to be with Brady, I would have liked to seen her with Chad.

Abigail is soooooooooooooooo boring. (This) Chad and Melanie could have been fun.

Melanie is good for Brady and vice versa. These last few months are the most I have enjoyed Melanie because of her relationship with Brady. She is also Theresa’s “six bit change” (foil) like no other. The acting chemistry between Molly and Jen Lilly is as good as the chemistry between Molly and Eric Martsolf. The Melanie-Brady-Theresa story is wired for old school drama that can last for years to come. I hope the Days producers and writers hold on to it because this storyline is a winner like we haven’t seen on Days in a long time!

Melanie grew on me over time. At first I couldn’t grasp who she was and what she was about. Then I got her as time went on. I thought she was pretty damn cool. I wish she hadn’t left days as her character added this different personality that we never see in anyone else. Silly,fun and was the best for Brady! I’m sick of Theresa and hope she gets what she deserves. Kinda sounded like victor had something up his sleeve?

I love Molly but hated the ludicrous story ending. And once again Brady has lost a love for the 100th time…I’m tired of it. And if for some reason they have Brady forgive and fall in love with Theresa I’ll stop watching the show.

Molly has created a unique character on DOOL. I will miss the quirky tenderness of Melanie Jonas. Hopefully, the actress and character will return in the near future. Days needs compelling female characters in her age range. Best wishes Molly!

I have never really seen the “it” factor in this character-she’s too over the top in her attempts to be cute, and cuddly which I think comes across as extremely immature. There’s no complexity; and I think that her younger brother Parker has more depth and maturity. The Brady/Melanie “romance” fell lackluster and my only hope is that Melanie will take that spoiled rotten, narcissistic, nasty Theresa with her and drop her off the face of the Earth-UGH! Oh, and nuWill too. Did anyone else want to vomit during Sonny and Will’s home therapy session scenes-about Sonny’s Taylor Swift shirt… Read more »

I’m sorry she’s leaving. I like the character and the actress. I am so sick of Theresa winning all the time. Poor Brady.

Its unfortunate that “Melanie’s” character has to leave. It was finally great to see Brady with someone good. Hopefully she will be asked to return.

She is the one that wanted to leave. She said she would come back for 6 months only!!

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.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
