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

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 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!


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

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).

I’m looking forward to the episode. RC is such a fun writer!

ITA, I love Ron Carlivati, even though he blocked me on Twitter, lol

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

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

HaHa….that’s why I love you, Jimmy…..your sense of humor !! ❤️

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!

i like cartoons…some people think i am a Disney cartoon-especially Goofy!!!!

I❤️ Goofy!! Awwww….l

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Jen Lilley Signs Off at Days of our Lives: “Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan Off and On for the last 10 Years Has Taught Me So Much About Empathy and Grace”

This week on Days of our Lives, Jen Lilley will wrap her short-term run as Theresa Donovan. Lilley came back to reprise her role to a be a part of the on-screen memorial for Victor Kiriakis, and to honor one of her her all-time favorite scene partners, the late John Aniston.

While Lilley explained in interviews with the press, that she gave the series a 3 to 4 week window of time she would be available to reprise the role, she noted the long-running soap opera wrote more episodes and story for the character; thus the part will be turned over to another actress for the next leg of Theresa’s return story.

Meanwhile, through the years, Lilley came under fire over her run on DAYS being a devout Christian, and taking on the role of the troublemaking Theresa.  She fired back in one interview, “Why should I play a role like this,’ you know? That’s been something I’ve been asked over and over again, by Christians, like,‘How can you be a Christian and play this role?’ And the truth of the matter is that from a human perspective, Theresa’s kind of a horrible person, but from a God perspective, she’s exactly who Christ came and died for.”

With her final episode streaming on Peacock on Friday, September 22nd, Lilley took to her Instagram to share her sentiments on her Salem journey over the years.

Jen shared: “Last week of me exploring this girl’s shenanigans on screen. Playing Jeanne Theresa Donovan off and on for the last 10 years has taught me so much about empathy and grace. I have enjoyed every moment of her hilarious sass and ferocity, layered with brokenness. To the cast and crew at @dayspeacock, I love you forever. You’re my family. And to the best fans a girl could ask or hope for: remember there is no pit so deep you could ever find yourself in where God’s love cannot find you still. You are never beyond redemption. You are called by grace and marked with love. Thank you for supporting me on this decade long journey. #Days #RIPJohnAniston #ripvictorkiriakis #DOOL”

No word yet if in the future, and with Lilley’s busy filming schedule (once the SAG-AFTRA and writers strikes are resolved) for Great American Family movies and other projects, if she would be available to return to DAYS should the show decide to write for the character.

So, are you sad to see Jen exit the canvas as Theresa? Curious just who and how will take over her role? There have been plenty of online rumors that a certain actress currently on the show is taking over the part. Comment below.

Days of our Lives Celebrates One-Year on Peacock (Photos)

When Days of our Lives moved from NBC to the streaming service Peacock after 57 years on the air, it rocked many longtime fans of the beloved soap opera. However, NBC/Universal decided to make it a high priority on its companion streamer as one of its flagship shows. This was due, in part, to its dedicated fan base and viewership.

DAYS started its run in its new home on September 12th, 2022, and now one-year later, Peacock helped the show celebrate its first anniversary in its current streaming digs with an ice cream truck outside its studios in Burbank on Monday.

Taking a break from Salem, and to partake in some ice cream were DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Ella Cantu, (Jada) Abigail Klein (Stephanie), Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie), Carson Boatman (Johnny), Raven Bowens (Chanel), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Steve), and Greg Vaughan (Eric).

Check out some of the snaps from the ice cream truck fun below!
