Days Of Our Lives


Days of our Lives Preview: Can the Return of Father Eric Take Down the MarDevil? Plus, Lucas’ Secret Could Be Exposed!

Friday’s Christmas Eve episode was just a prelude of what’s to come next week on DAYS.  When we left off, John (Drake Hogestyn) rescued Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes), Doug (Bill Hayes), Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben (Rob Scott Weston) from the MarDevil who was causing terror and destruction in the Horton home before the annual Ornament hanging.

With an assist from the medallion John received during a visit from Gabe, it is able to yield some power over Satan. John heads to the Hortons and in the nick of time, literally flings MarDevil into the wall to knock her out with the powers within in the medallion.  He then kidnaps her and ties her up.  When MarDevil wakes up, John is sitting beside her in a chair expressing: “I hope these accommodations are to your liking.”


That sets the stage for the final week of the year on DAYS, which in its latest promo, shows the return of Greg Vaughn as Marlena’s son, Father Eric.  Together with John, and the rest of Marlena’s family, can they exorcise the devil out of her once and for all?

That may be harder than you think this time, because this MarDevil is very, very clever, and she will tempt Father Eric over his former lust for Kristen in the form of Eileen Davidson, in another guest appearance.


And don’t think MarDevil doesn’t have more tricks up her sleeve! She has something major over Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) – that he is the one that kidnapped Sami – and Satan blackmails Lucas to untie her or she will divulge his secret! Juicy stuff.

Check out the promo below, and then let us know what you think will happen next week on DAYS? Will MarDevil go free? Will Marlena return? Is Lucas going to do MarDevil’s bidding? And what did you think of DAYS’ Christmas Eve episode? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

The xmas present I didnt know i needed…Kristen and Eric round 2!
Thank you Days and soap gods!!! Thank you Eileen Dsvidson and Greg Vaughan

If only Santa would also visit Genoa City and relieve of us from Josh Griffiths reign of sheer misery and boredom….

Y&R has never aired in Hell, so if I went there, I would be totally lost. I know Salem like the back of my hand, so I can fit in easy there. Probably could do just as well in Port Charles…. which might be my next stop, if somebody else doesn’t send Whiny Heiny back where he belongs.

Excellent ! SHEER – delights – Savor, too

you gotta know… these two , top shelfer’ Ms. Davidson, and SIR, Greg Vaughn are salivating…

Loves it!!!! Great promo!!!
Though, I will say that these guest spots for Eileen D. is in a way good for her portrayals in the past, to bring her into the possession storyline, however, I find it insulting and insensitive to Stacey H. who IS currently Kristen/Susan.
Days needs to figure which actress they want… to keep. I understand Eileen D has deep history with the characters and John and Marlena, Brady and Eric but they recasted the roles a few years ago. It was fun to see Eileen D. pop up into the movie special but my concern is with how Stacey is feeling with sharing the roles that she took over.
Bring on MarDevil.

Jeremy ‘ thank you for the love given Stacey Haiduk

I am so appreciative of her . I posted, that, Ms. Eileen Davidson, made Y&R , her home. @DAYs won her first emmy. because, as a recast, Ms. Haiduk, deserve accolade’ for bringing to LIFE… Lady gusto DiMera…. pinch her pile on Susan! this lady loaded !!!

once again, as is THEE cycle of life.. so goes DAYS Susan Haiduk for the Win

i will say i will not let… till i see a reunion of Ms. Rachel, Brady, Kristen

it is a love so rich

“PLEASE” – give me… “Zach Tinker” – “PLEASE”

How is Mardevil being held by those bonds? I thought she could escape anything.

Re-Ron’s plot point writing again. This is so they can set up the dramatic return of Eric in his priest collar. Also, so I can blackmail Lucas into untying the ropes.

Who knows? Maybe John used ropes that had been soaked in holy water? Or he got some new powers of his own from that medal Gabriel gave him.

Damn that Gabriel… he’s been getting up in my business ever since the “good old days” back in Heaven….

Though I appreciate writers attempting to give diehard DH fans a story, the acting & plot ridiculousness in the possession story is horrible.

Well Salem, it’s been fun! But I have to be back in Hell in time for my annual New Year’s Evil party, so bye bye for now!!

Happy New Year to you. I’m sure we’ll all have a devil of a good time in 2022. Keep the home fires burning!

OMG, what a total let down after yesterday’s show. I couldn’t wait to see how Marlena was today, and the rest of the family, but they showed all the other stuff of no interest. At least Nicolle had the good grace to tell Eric that she probably ruined him for all other women. Thinking back of every thing she did years ago to get that collar off with success and finally losing him in the end due to her own infidelity, serves her right. What a slut!

Days of our Lives Longtime Lovebirds, Arianne Zucker and Shawn Christian, Set Wedding Date

In the words of Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel, DAYS) himself, “Just remember ya’ll….there is great value in long courtships,” it appears that he and his longtime love. Arianne Zucker (Nicole, DAYS), have finally picked their wedding date, and the destination for their nuptials.

Back in August of 2023, the couple shared that they plan to tie the knot in 2024, and with their latest IG post it looks like the wedding day is becoming closer and closer.

As Days of our Lives fans know, Zucker is suing the soap opera’s producers and production entity, and her last episode should air on July 29th, since the show tapes so far in advance. One can assume, her character, Nicole Walker may get a happy ending and get her baby back before exiting Salem? However, that’s yet to be seen.

In the meantime, the couple who live in Nevada, continue to make plans for their big day. In their newest update, Zucker shared, “We discovered a wedding DESTINATION and DATE DATE! So grateful to everyone who has helped us make this exploration an eye-opening awe-inspiring adventure!”

While Christian chimed in, “I already hear many of you saying ‘finally Shawn!’ Just remember ya’ll….there is great value in long courtships.” #justsaying #loveispatient #loveiscrazy”

Shawn’s journey as Daniel Jonas on DAYS lasted from 2008 to 2017, while Zucker has portrayed Nicole Walker since 1998. The couple have been engaged since 2021.

The duo made no clear mention of the exact wedding date or location in their post, only that they have got things locked in and all systems are a-go!

So, happy to hear that Ari and Shawn are finally about to become husband and wife? Comment below.

TODAY: Days of our Lives Icon Deidre Hall Guest Stars on ‘Hacks’

As we previously reported, Days of our Lives star Deidre Hall (Marlena) is playing a version of herself on the hit Max comedy series, Hacks. The episode dropped today on May 23rd and is already available for streaming.

In it, Deidre plays Jimmy’s mother (Paul W. Downs). For those in the know, Downs is not only one of co-creators and stars of Hacks, but as it turns out is a fan of Days of our Lives.

Speaking on her guest star appearance, Hall told TV Insider, “I was told by Paul and Lucia Aniello (co-creator) that Paul’s mom was a longtime fan of DAYS and of Marlena, and then she introduced him to the show when he was a toddler.“

Deidre added, “So when they were looking for a person to play Paul’s mother, they said, ‘Wait a minute, are we crazy? Why don’t we see if we can get Deidre.’”

As to her guest star turn, Hall previewed,“The script was written that the part is ‘legendary Deidre Hall,’ so I didn’t have to reach too far for what she looks like, what she sounds like, how she moved.”

In story, Deidre got the opportunity to work with Back to the Future’s Christopher Lloyd, whom she shared, “Working with Christopher Lloyd was probably the most daunting thing that’s happened to me for a while.” Hall added, “He was just the loveliest.”


According to Hall, her Days of our Lives co-stars will be tuning-in at some point today or this evening to catch her appearance, which she is very excited about.

Hacks stars Jean Smart as everyone’s favorite comedian Deborah Vance. In season 3, the critically acclaimed and Emmy-wining comedy series explores the dark mentorship between a legendary stand-up comedian and young, entitled comedy writer.
