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 Agree, Melanie was a great personality… I’m very disappointed to see her go.

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!!

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
