Superb news!

After the big Kristen wedding reveal and her leaving, I think everyone was concerned how they would keep the momentum going. But they sure have! They have delivered in every way!

Kudos to everyone over at Sony/NBC and DAYS! Great work by everyone involved!

After the firing of Michael Muhney, from Y&R, Jan. 30th is the last time this Y&R fan will watch. DOOL sounds like a great replacement. Will check it out on Jan. 31st. Good to know.
Thank you once again Michael Fairman for your positive spin on what is really going on. You do good work.

I think Days is going to stay strong with the stories they are putting forth now. The Ej and Abby affair was a shockingly fun twist that can’t help but make one want to see how it plays out. Nick is he dead or isn’t he (? ) keeps me engaged and I love the sweet romance they’ve put forth with Rafe and Jordan! I’m enjoying they’ve now included Lucas and Sheryl into Jordan’s mystery opening up the canvas to make that an intriguing tale. Great work Days!

DOOL is the best of the four network daytime serials thanks to he focus the lead characters — EJ, Daniel, Jennifer, and Abby. Should the writing team create a compelling story to lure Peter Reckells back to daytime and cast a new dashing young actor as Shawn-Douglas, the audience will continue to grow significantly.

Lena

Since when did Abby become a lead character?

Or Jennifer? To me the main characters are EJ, Sami, Nicole, Daniel, Brady and Eric! Who else agrees?

Wow, from the comments I’ve been reading Days sounds like the place to go after 1/30 if Michael Muhney has not returned to Y&R. For me, after being a Y&R viewer from day 1 there will be no more Y&R/CBS/Sony. Counting the days….

I don’t want to spoil this and say you’ll be free from 2/3 when you come to DAYS, but DAYS IS a WAAAAY better show than YR! You should start watching now because the major stories are just starting up again. It’s the soap to watch for sure!

The Ej and Abby rendezvous has kept me watching and wanting to see more of what happens between them. Good soapy stuff. Keep up the momentum Days, and we will keep watching!

Emily

Good for Days!!:) I’m hooked and enjoying it. Have been watching since circa ’83. I like the storylines, how the characters interact/changed up, it flows. For me the rgt amt of drama, soapiness and the shenanigans (brings a little bit of the funny:)

The Abigail and EJ love scene was smoking. I’m not looking at them as a couple per say, but enjoying that twist in the story line. Yowza, when Sami finds out….

Keep it up!!

Sooo happy that the world is starting to see that daytime tv is still alive!! I have always watched DAYS but the s/l’s are sooo intriguing, it’s better than most shows at night! I love the Eric and Nicole love story..who doesn’t want to see a priest–who was drugged and raped by his future sister in law and accused his first true love of raping him–end up falling in love once again!???!! This is pure soapiness at its best!!! Keep it up DAYS:)

Dmitri

Woot woot! Days has been doing so well! Between the Daniel-Eric-Nicole love triangle-ish stuff to the shocking but very hot love scenes between EJ and Abigail. Now, with Rafe and Jordan getting together and Lucas getting more scenes with Sheryl, things are only going to get better.

“…The folks in Salem have received a wonderful New Year’s present with their latest ratings! ”

Isn’t this a further testament… to how good it is to be : in Salem!

yes it is!

Ta-Da!

there is no cast shock… no bait and switch… no waiting for story advancement, comparable to the other 3 shows… the whole cast expertly weave themselves throughout the canvas… and I’m giddy and can watch the whole hour… and still dream… along

Days of OUR Lives… for Year 2014… will reign us all in… for intrigue… awe… and fascinate us with the actors skills… and comparable on par writing… to maintain… best show… and must repeat… as best show… at this years Emmys!

Jeanie

In my personal opinion “Days” always was the number one show! Got hooked with Ejaylor and now just can’t wait for each episode – and OMG isn’t it exciting now!!! Love Nicole, Daniel, Eric triangle but can’t WAIT to see what happens with EJabbie!!
PS – have never like EJami (although I do like Alison Sweeney, just not her character)!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Courtesy/NBC

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
