DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sami Tries to Splain Her Way Out of Her Affair with Lucas to EJ as Alison Sweeney Turns In Bravura Performance

Courtesy/NBC

On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the first since the Tokyo Olympics took centerstage on NBC, provided plenty of fireworks, especially in key scenes between EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) and Sami (Alison Sweeney).

When we left off, EJ was armed with a letter from Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) about Sami’s cheating ways with Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) which landed in his hands thanks to Nicole (Arianne Zucker) – who wants payback for Sami, after Sami destroyed her relationship with Eric (Greg Vaughan).

It all goes down when EJ opens a champagne bottle for him and Sami and begins with a toast to his wife who is “beautiful, strong, and also a ‘lying adulteress.”’ Game on!

While at first, she tried to deny it, EJ gets her to admit she had sex with Lucas. However, Sami begins to get herself into deeper hot water, when she insists it didn’t mean anything, but EJ firedback that it meant something to him.  Sami recalls how Lucas and her were locked in a wine cellar fearing they would die, which brought them together and that they only slept together one time.

But not so fast there, Sami! EJ pulls out the nail in Sami’s coffin, the letter from Kristen where she tells him that Sami was having sex with Lucas in her mother’s guest room.  After a failed attempt to defend herself, EJ gives her one last chance to come clean. She then admits she slept with Lucas twice, and how she had felt lonely and that she was fearing her marriage to EJ had fallen apart, and she even throws up to him, his affair with Abigail several years ago.

While reminding him they found a way to work through his cheating ways. EJ insists what happened with Abigail was different because they weren’t married at the time.

Later in the episode, Sami shows up at Nicole’s door loaded for bear. She says, as Rafe (Galen Gering) looks on, “Rafe, you better get out of here. The bitch and I need to talk.”

Throughout the episode, Alison Sweeney delivered as she always had in Sami’s meaty storyline moments. and reminds us all of why Sami is one of the all-time best characters in the history of soaps as played in Alison’s capable hands.

And as first reported by Soap Opera Digest, (in their latest issue on newsstands now) things take another turn this week when Sami is kidnapped, which will help facilitate Sweeney’s exit from the canvas for now as well.

So, what did you think of the showdown scenes between EJ and Sami? Comment below.

Great scenes and performances for both Alison and Daniel. I really like Daniel as EJ. He was on fire in this episode and Allison was brilliant. On Soap Opera Central, yesterday, I read that Alison is leaving DAYS. I thought she signed on for a full-year, I can’t imagine that has passed already? I don’t understand now, I thought the Summer Promo were promoting LUMI as a couple?… Is this a short break for Alison? Or, is she properly exiting the role, again? If she is exciting… why bring back EJ? Ugh, just when I was loving all the EJ… Read more »

OMG, sure we’ll see her run away again, as is her usual M.O. Maybe Kristin will come back and load her up in a trunk and ship her off to the island where she’s been keeping all the other abductees. Aloha, Sammy.

It was fantastic! Such a great way to come back after the break. I’m here for it all!! The line to Rafe was icing on the cake!

Sami, Sami, Sami–Oh, me, oh, my—-you are dealing with the ferocious, hypocritical DiMeras. “Do as I say and not as I do”….So reminiscent of a certain body of Orwellian governing, so imminently close.
Karma, Sami—-Karma, Nicole—keep your legs crossed.

It was ok. I think he could’ve forgave her since hes no saint.she brought him back to good health and his treatment of her was cold. Had he appreciated all her care for him she wouldn’t have turned to an ex. As for nicole like shes no saint either but its also Eric’s fault for leaving his new bride home.the writer could’ve gotten another Eric since the other left.these days they arrnt allowing couples to actually make it.Their all keeping secrets having affairs get taken or are presumed dead man losing memory.

In this situation, especially with Nicole and Sami, it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black, and no amount of cleaning will work on these two.

Sammi’s one of my favorites because most of the time , she stands strong regardless of the consequences.

As I change the topic: Lani is a hypocrite ; she can’t forgive her aunt her pass deeds ; however , she can forgive Kristen. However , I shouldn’t be surprised because these Soaps as other shows we watch and movies that we see reflect what these producers and writers have experienced in life. Fiction imitates life : not the other way around!

Boop,
Right you are. I often wondered how she could just overlook her crimes, especially being a cop and then turn around and treat her like she was Mother Teresa.

That Gabi is a piece of work, certainly with no class the way she looks and acts. She just takes Sami’s necklace without giving a damn who it might belong to. Certainly someone will recognize it as belonging to Sami, maybe even EJ himself.
Speaking of piece of work! Nicole acting all pathetic, crying all over Rafe, while her daughter tends to herself in another room. Oh, how I wish Daniel was still alive to take this poor kid and give her a loving home.

Never could get into the old EJ and Sammie due to the rape origins. EJ and Sammie 2.0 seem to be a more natural fit to me. While Sammie is away I can’t wait to see Abigail return and reside in the DiMera mansion with EJ and Chad and all that history.
Also would like for EJ to meet Gwen. She has chemistry with every man she meets and boy would she give Sammie a run for her money if EJ and Gwen hooked up. Can we say who killed Gwen Devereux.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

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.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
