DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Special Halloween Episode On Tap With Some Very Spooky & Familiar Faces

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

This week, it’s going to be another Halloween to remember for Days of our Lives fans when head writer, Ron Carlivati does a little “trick or treat” with the viewers when for the the second year in a row, he delivers a special episode that puts a pause on the current story, while moving the story forward by the end of the episode.

DAYS fans can get a taste of what’s in store in the Wednesday, October 31st installment from the latest promo up at NBC.com and posted below; where the voice-over announce sounds a lot like Thaao Penghlis (Andre)!

He says: “A princess, a mummy, some ghoulish foul play, the dead have risen and they won’t go away, so be aware of those things that go bump in the day!”

Carlivati teased the Fright night episode to Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now): “Originally, I had wanted to do a parody of The Exorcist because Marlena (Deidre Hall) has been possessed, and so it seemed like perfect way to be able to have a nod back to that storyline without really doing it.” He then added,”So, because of Abigail (Marci Miller) who’s pregnant, we were able to have elements of The Exorcist, but it morphed a little more into Rosemary’s Baby!

Check out the latest DAYS promo below, and let us know if you are looking forward to this fun episode in the comment section below.

Why dont we find out that Hattie is really a triplet to Marlena and her late sister Samantha…Tony or Andre…on GH…Sasha is a con hired by Valentin and not Nina’s daughter

I agree about Sasha, Jimmy. I said it from the onset that I had my doubts.
As far as Valentin having a hand in this? I don’t know….the consequences would be ‘murderous’ ( not literally, LOL) if Nina found out. Would he dare?
I just have an observation about Abby and Gabi. What the heck? If my mother, brother and especially my husband had lain any credence on Gabi’s words?….well, yeah!! I’d run and not look back. I just worry about snake-in-the-grass Stefan, who is still in la-la-land, futilely waiting for Gabby.
I understand it may be difficult for everyone to think Abigail is here to stay, considering Gabi’s duplicitous, spiteful past.
Yet, all present incredible signs of behavior belie every real previous behavior. … am I making any sense? Shame on them for not believing her and shame on the writers for making a mockery out of this illness.❤️

A nice twist is that Curtis hired her and he is crooked as well

I’m on very little sleep right now and just stumbled upon this thread. LOL: are you talking about Curtis…our GH Curtis? If so; nooooooooo. He’s not crooked. No way. And IF Sasha turns out to be a scam, I don’t think Valentin knows about it. For all we know it could be a Madeleine scam.

But I’m tending to think she’s the real deal. But perhaps a troublemaker; not as sweet as she first seemed. She definitely has eyes for Griffin and is going to be the perfect weapon in Ava’s revenge. Do unto Kiki as Kiki did unto Ava! Cannot STAND Kiki!

Yay!

I would have nothing to do with any family who did not believe me-even when i lie to them-lol

Celia
Celia

Of course, Jimmy……that’s what family is for—-even when we lie!! LOL.
Curtis a bad guy? Hmmmm. ….that would really turn and spin everyone on his/her head!!❤️

I think Valentin believes that Sasha is Nina’s daughter. I think she is a con. I think Willow (like we need another new character) is either Nina’s daughter or the original birth mother (Brad/Lucas).

The show has improved greatly…just wish the lookalikes werent so over done…or we find out Hattie is Marlena’s triplet and Bonnie is Adrienne’s twin then maybe

Celia

Oh, my gosh, Jimmy…I’m home, for once…..watched today’s ep. I enjoyed the show soooo much.
Deidra Hall was phenomenal !!!!…..had no idea she had a satirical, comedic bone in her. So versatile. I was laughing out loud!! Everyone was drop-dead hilarious, except for Hope and her eyebrow.
At first, I thought it was ‘real’ , until I realized it was a spoof!!
Great show!!

It wasnt real? Then i was fooled-lol

It is fun to watch, 4-ever…..I look forward to the next episode, and the next, and the next…..
It has been quite a while since I’ve felt so drawn ( for lack of a better word) to DOOL!❤️

The show has turned into a cartoon!

Agreed. For months I have been looking for a storyline (any storyline) that I can latch onto and care about even a little. Nope.

Maybe I’ll check in on the show again in a month or two, just to see whether anything worthwhile is going on.

The comparison between what I know this could be versus what it actually is seems enormous.

To be fair, though, if a scene consisted of nothing more than Lucas Adams standing there, shirtless, reading the dictionary aloud, I’d watch.

AVP

These storylines remind me of the mid-late 90’s and beyond, when story arcs were really “out there,” with no real conclusion. That’s the reason I stopped watching back then. The show was a joke. I started watching again when Eileen Davidson returned about six years ago. I stopped when she left.

Celia

I thoroughly enjoyed the episode. Such clever writing!!
Says Abigail to Andre’, ” so, you’re not mad at me for bashing you over the head?”…. hilarious. I have never been more impressed by Deidra Hall as I have while in Hattie “mode”.

Loved the episode. Knew the stuff happening wasnt real and when Abby’s baby was born I got a kick out of them doing Rosemary’s Baby. Hey I love anything that is scary. Great show as usual.

Adam

Todays episode was hilarious. Deidre was LOL funny. This episode was almost as funny as when Susan/Kristen married John looking like Elvis.

Celia

HaHa…I’m still laughing, Adam. I said on another site that I had no idea Deidre had such a comedic “gift”. Loved her!!

Though the episode was a complete waste. Didn’t find it funny and was disappointed that they interrupted “story” for such silliness. I would have liked a Halloween episode based in reality; I just tuned it out. Just once again broke the fourth wall for me.

“I won’t tune in 365 days a year… I just can’t

this gumption you fly

that fourth wall is my question

que sera que sera

Oh, my gosh, Jimmy….you were right about Sasha and Valentin. The snake. Poor Nina!! She’ll be crushed. Then she finds out Kiki is her daughter but Kevin kills her? Bears, tigers, and lions, ….oh, my…..!! Well, you did predict Nelle. Maybe? I KNOW there’s a baby out there.
Oh, another thing? “Kevin” breaks up with sweet Laura. For a minute I thought he was about to tell her he was impotent and couldn’t perform….the reason about avoiding intimacy. LOL.

Back to “normal” in Salem, Jimmy…..I find it fascinating that its citizens believe Bonnie’s eggs are alive and kicking…..still viable. LOL.
Oh….the baby is so cute….it seemed as though someone cued her to smile at Kingly, Rex. Perfect timing. Beautiful smile.
I had a dog named Rex, once.

On the latest episode of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, long-running star, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) sits down to chat with host Michael Fairman about the shocking return of Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) to Salem, and how Jennifer is trying to cope with the believed-to-be-dead love-of-her-life who has come to town with no memory of her … or his past!

Reeves chats on: how she found out Matt Ashford was coming back to DAYS, how important those New Year’s Eve scenes were, her on-screen and off-screen relationship with Salem arch-rival, Kassie DePaiva (Eve), and a look back at Jack and Jenn’s memorable wedding and their vows decades ago.  Missy also talks about the love of her life, Scott Reeves (Ex-Ryan, Y&R, Ex-Steve, GH Ex-Jake, DAYS), and their new coffee business in Nashville. Missy also takes tie to remember the late Frances Reid and MacDonald Carey as her on-screen grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, and the importance of carrying on the tradition of the Horton family to this day on-air.

Later, Paul Telfer (Xander) and Greg Rikaart (Leo) talk with Fairman all about last Friday’s cliffhanger, where Leo jumps on Xander for sex in exchange for providing information to Xander on Sonny and Will, so Xander can become CEO of Titan.  But will Xander go through with it?  The two talk about playing these opportunistic, bad boy characters.

Judith Chapman Confirms She Is Back On DAYS And As Leo’s Mom

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Soap Opera Digest revealed that Judith will play Diana.   Her first airdate will be on January 29th.  DAYS fans know Judith from her time as Angelica Deveraux from 1989-1991, and most recently when she returned to the show for the 2018 Halloween episode doing a guest-turn as Angelica AKA Satan in Hattie’s (Deidre Hall) nightmare.

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.
