Days of our Lives Teases An Unforgettable Christmas Reunion!

Courtesy/NBC

Christmastime in Salem is always filled with tradition, heartbreak, and romance.

And this week will be no exception as NBC’s Days of our Lives latest promo features two major stories that are about to have some major reveals.

First, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) has given birth as Nicole (Arianne Zucker) holds the newborn, but as Chloe is about to reveal to her friend that Nicole is actually the baby’s bio-mother, she passes out!

Then in the highly-anticipated reunion, it looks like the moment Chabby fans have been waiting for happens, when Chad (Billy Flynn) lays eyes on Abigail (Marci Miller) for the first time since her return to Salem.  The promo is calling it “An Unforgettable Christmas reunion”.  But will it be when Chad learns that Abby has been alive this whole time, and was in on making Chad believe she died?  And what about his burgeoning feelings for Gabi (Camila Banus)?

Watch the promo for this week’s DAYS after the jump.  Then let us know what you think will go down when Chad and Abby are together for the first time in a very long time, and what Nicole will do with the baby she has in her arms which at the moment she believes is Chloe’s? Comment below.

David may actually come back, Judy. When he realizes Valerie gave birth to his son, Eli, many years ago he’ll be back. Julie won’t keep Eli a secret no matter what Valerie wants.

As for the topic of this thread, Nicole finally has a baby! I wonder how old her child will be before she knows she’s a mother. And Chabby finally reunite! I wonder how long their union will last before she goes running to her mother.

Please do not put Gabi and Chad together. Chad needs happiness but not with Gabi. That girl goes from one person to the other. I wish the writers would get rid of her Jade Claire they can’t act at all. My 2 cents.

Are you sure you don’t mean Ciara instead of Claire, Rose. I doubt DAYS will dump the actress who plays Claire. The girl has good energy! As for Jade, she’s being recast because the actress chose to leave.

LOL, Judy! “Christmas Reunion” is what it says, but it will be on Friday. Thursday is the hanging of the ornaments.

I don’t think this recast is working…. she clearly doesn’t have the acting chops of Kate Mansi… she wasn’t shedding a tear today as she was supposed to be heartbroken in this episode…

She’s playing it cold and a bit creepy

I think Marci Miller is doing an outstanding job, Elite. She’s already shed a million tears. I love her jestures, mannerisms and voice. She does good at being frazzled too!

How can we even tell i she can act? All she has done is hyperventilate. I’m hoping that’s just the writing and she will get to move on soon.

I am really hating how this ‘new’ Abbi is being portrayed as so weak and helpless… the old Abbs was a strong willed, intelligent and extremely confident woman- I mean I get she has gone thru some stuff and has ptsd but come on already…get back to that independent beautiful and confident girl we all loved…. kick GABI’S ass for cheating on JJ and doing it with your man…lol.
rant over.

I completely agree. They stupidly painted the character in to a corner – for four months she went insane. It was dumb. Abby was smart, confident, didn’t take it from Teresa or anyone.

But they hit reverse on the character. They might as well call her Summer and announce she’s Maggie’s lost daughter.

Where’s the fire? Where’s the push back? Remember the Abby who threw down with a crazed killer? Where did she go?!

The killer (Ben) killed a part of her.

that’s a powerful… last para… can’t deny it

Kate Mansi went out with a bang.

( nuAbs ) – she’s been displaying a lot of beats…

the scaredy cat… she’s “not”

I too want a fun playful sensual passion for this duo.

watching Kate Mansi live “happily ever after” would have been serious payoff

for the audience. .

nevertheless…. I hope Marci rises to the occasion… Chad is ready

she’ll start the new year with her own bang

Frustrating how great the actors are on Days, but how awful the storylines remain, even when fans are pulling, and have done so for a long time, for the show to get better. Even in soapland, Abigail’s family would have gotten her professional help by now–not just let her keep having panic attacks in the attic and be manipulated by Andre. I bet we will have to see Abigail approach Chad and her baby and then run away several times before Friday. The Nicole Chloe Deimos Philip mess is kinda sick stuff that went even more sour when Deimos kidnapped… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
