DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Who Killed Deimos?


The suspects are many, and it looks like the initial Salemite taken into custody may not be the culprit!

On last Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, it was JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) who was arrested for having Deimos Kirkiakis’ (Vincent Irizarry) blood on his shirt! But with so many people at the Martin House shindig under the effects of the drug Halo (Thanks to a vindictive Deimos spiking the champagne that everyone drank), did a drugged JJ really kill the guy? JJ always seems to land in hot water, even when he is innocent!

On a side note: Hey All My Children fans, remember when Vincent Irizarry as Dr. David Hayward also drugged the party goers on a yacht filled with Pine Valley residents with the drug Libidozone? Interesting bit of history repeating itself!

Back to DAYS: From Nicole (Arianne Zucker), Eric (Greg Vaughan), Sonny (Freddie Smith), Paul (Christopher Sean), Chad (Billy Flynn), Gabi (Camila Banus), Lani (Sal Stowers), Eli (Lamon Archey), JJ, Abigail (Marci Miller), Dario (Jordi Vilasuso), Hope (Kristian Alfonso), Rafe (Galen Gering), Victor (John Aniston), Brady (Eric Martsolf) and many others in town, everyone had an ax to grind with the evil drug lord! But, who really finished Deimos off for good

Watch this week’s promo for Days of our Lives after the jump.Then weigh-in! Who will ultimately be revealed to be the real culprit? Will there be a murder trial? Share your theories in the comment section below!

My guess is Dario.

Let’s hope so. The character is pointless. Reminds me of Nick sister. NO REASON FOR BEING ON

I agree, Vicki. I could never understand what the fascination with this character/actor is. He is non-charismatic….not to sound petulant, Vicki, but normally, even the bad boys ‘demand’ some attraction, depending on their personality. He has none.
This guy has nothing to offer. I could easily accept him if he had some allure. And I do not mean looks alone. He is bland……I do agree with you…..he is pointless.
If Dario is exiting, then an easy way to walk out is for him to have killed Deimos. Good riddance, I say….and Gabi can go with him.
I used to love Gabi…..but, she freaks me out. I know she’s always had her cap set for Chad and now, she grabbed the opportunity.
How stupid is Chad? Gabi is an enigma. Do we love her? Detest her? She confounds me. The writers have completely changed her, in my opinion.

Vicki…EXACTLY!!!!! More and more, I find Dario to be BEYOND ANNOYING!!!!! BLECH!!!!!

Take care, Vicki,

Vicki…oh, and one more thing: To me, Dario is FAST-FORWARD MATERIAL ALL THE WAY…PERIOD!!!!!

Take care, Vicki.

I agree. We already know he is running some kind of online theft operation. And now married to Abigail…hmm and wasn’t he there at the beginning of the party?

Who cares—- but if you want to get technical about it — it was whoever created the character to begin with– it was a dumb idea from the get go– got worse over time, don’t blame VI from leaving— but whoever did it, please reveal it quickly, don’t want to have to go down the whole list of Halo suspects with fuzzy memories– if I was writing this, I would have Henderson be the one– the classic the butler did it– and move on.

Whatever! I like a good “whodunnit?” storyline… that being said I cannot wait until Ron Carlivati’s material to start airing! Wish he penned this one!

Deimos killed himself…he accidentally drank his own drug, hallucinted, and attacked himself…realizing he was dieing he managed to wipe off his own fingerprints on the murder weapon to make it look like one of his enemies murdered him!!!

Hahaha…oh, Jimmy…you really crack me up….
That’s some imagination you’ve got there. Love it.



My money is on the waiter that was working the party with Deimos. He’s a throw-away character who would be easy to pin the murder on and not disrupt the canvas. Plus, they took the time to show the waiter drinking the tinted champagne while cleaning up. Why, if not to drop a clue? Just my guess.

True, that, Rodd. If TPTB do not have anyone specific in mind of which to rid themselves, then yes, your guess is the only logical one.

I have tuned back into Days of our lives . Last weeks episodes culminating in the murder were just great . Days of our lives has taken a turn for the best , yes the best . The murder mystery is fascinating . I can now sit through an entire episode without turning the tv off and i am even excited at seeing the next episode . You can all tune back in . Make sure to watch last weeks episodes leading up to the murder and when they find the body and who has been arrested but quite possibly hasn’t done it .

Yes, I remember when Dr. Hayward purposely dispensed that drug, since he was essentially the same misguided character as Deimos. It’s not just a case of “history repeating itself” but rather a rehashed done-to-death storyline – Vincent is most certainly a proficient actor but this is pretty much the same character that he is sort of known for portraying. I am more than marginally bored with this show, have missed many of June’s episodes and it doesn’t seem to matter because I can watch a few moments here and there on line and pretty much know what’s going on since it’s the most drawn-out show in television’s history.
It’s not my intention to come across as critical but I do feel that this show needs a shot of “something”, I’m not exactly sure what –

The writers killed Deimos not long after he appeared on the canvas by making him into a one dimensional villain. Poor Vincent Irazarry had to endure some of the worst writing in soap history. As far as who finished the character off at the party, the answer will of course be, “none of the above”. It will probably be Xander. Now, let’s work on getting VIncent over to General Hospital (where the writing is marginally better).

I know, Mister Media. Too bad….One of the best on daytime. I do hope we will see Vincent soon….maybe primetime?

Nicole…since the actress is leaving….I am having computer issues and not getting email…also difficult getting on here so i dont see my replies ect., …i hope to work it out soon…been very ill of late so maybe its a sign i needed a break???

@Jimh….So sorry to hear of your latest woes—computer and otherwise!!! Hope you get them all squared away and soon, so we can again enjoy your delightful posts in their fullest forms of fun and fancy! Until then, take care, my friend!

It’s hit or miss, Shay. Once in a blue moon, I will get one.
What can I say? I am sure it’s my ipad, since I share this email address with my sister-in-law, with minor “adjustments”…LOL.
I do not dare use my personal one…was hacked, last time.

WOW!!! You got my mail? HaHa!! How rich!! I just don’t get it. She’s less than a speck in my world. I do not understand why my words should matter in hers.
We all pick on characters, Shay. But, I draw the line picking on our fellow-posters….. which she does, constantly.
I do not bother reading; only when hers follow mine, which is mostly always….snarky!! Unhinged!!
However I do not read her winded essays.
Issues, much?

The irony is, Shay, she manages to turn the tables on us. We mind our own business; we do not start the ugly disputes and insults .
we enjoy each other’s comments—we go back and forth ( when posted), between ourselves—but, without fail, the demeaning laughter and affrontery upon our person; intelligence; and moral discipline ( which she lacks) starts.
I seem to remember how Mr. Fairmain, last year, in April, cautioned all of us to be respectful of each other and to be mindful of our criticism of the characters/actors.
Well, we are human, and we do ‘fall’ occasionally. But never sgainst each other—the posters, thst is.
I will be first to admit that I go on and on about Sonny. But, so does she. Alexis NEEDS to be out of reach. God forbid anything negative is uttered about this character.
There are so many posters who drag Nina through the mud. You know how much I love Nina/Michelle, Shay….there was nary a comment from me berating you or bashing said posters? No. I do not do that. It is their opinion.
Nonetheless, she continues to demean both of us. You have more control than I, Shay. You do not answer back. I have ignored her for months since the last time.
We sort of, started being civil again, but then, she veered back to her usual self and insulted me. All about Alexis… does not stop. Even after MF’s admonition.
I promise to myself, if I stay on the GH site, that I will not abase myself so, ever again. Ignore!!

I know exactly what you mean, Jimmy. I am not receiving any mail from any of the MF sites.
As I had told Shay, I have to go through the boards with a fine-toothed comb to look for any reply.
Thank goodness my “business” mail “goes” elsewhere.
It’s strange.
Sorry about your relapse, Jimmy. Take care of yourself.

Wow, CeeCee…You’re still NOT receiving any MF messages? Bummer! Then again, just between you and me, mia amica, I’ve unfortunately been “treated” to a few highly personal “nastygrams” meant for you over the past few days, I’m sure you can surmise the source and subject matter…LOL. Seems they were “misdirected” to my personal inbox. One made it online the Julian thread, one didn’t. No matter, same old stuff, nothing new!…..@@…..Went straight to my trash file….very apropos! But do check it out when you can….always worth a good laugh if nothing else!

Well, count yourself lucky to have missed the latest two “glittering gems of venomous verbosity,” CeeCeeGirl! Basically, they both boiled down to those two most favorite, oft-repeated buzzwords: “Baby booties and b@@bs!” Need I expound any further? (Rhetorical question….Lol.) But seriously, why these posts continue to be entertained at this late date is beyond me…they never offer anything new or unique, it’s just the same old rehashing of personal grievances and throwing of shade at you, me or the two of us combined! And when I am called out by name, I’m seldom granted the right of response, even if it’s not worth dignifying it with such. This situation is so one-sided that it’s not even up for debate…..and for what purpose? To attempt to placate the truly implacable???? Your guess is as good as mine!

Hey…here’s an idea: Reveal WHOEVER as Deimos’s killer…and QUICKLY!!!!! I mean…why air YET ANOTHER long, drawn-out and EVEN MORE LAME murder trial?!?!?

Just saying……….

All I know for certain is how laugh out loud and pretty damn embarrassing it was to watch Hope still in the throes of “libidozone” or ecstasy. Get a clue Rafe. MOVE on. Please. I don’t know. wanting to give Ron carlivati benefit of doubt. Oh forget it Kristian Alfonso is Ken Corday pet. So sorry galen Gerring

Ahhh, Patrick. Sooo glad we still agree on the subject of Hope and Rafe.
What a lost cause!!!! Sorry for both Galen and Rafe, who loves kids….
Hope’s factory is closed!! Get a clue is right!!!!!

So glad you mentioned the David Hayward flashback…first thing I thought of when I saw this SL.

I started thinking this is where Nicole bids us adios. I don’t want to think she killed Deimos but I know she is leaving the show very soon so this could be the way she goes off the canvas although a little messed up if it goes that way.

Might he play Dr. Haywood again soon?

There are ‘rumors’ that he (Vincent) is heading for General Hospital and I suspect he will play Dr. David Hayward, formerly from Pine Valley Hospital. This gives one reason to think that since ABC has re-gained the character rights from both All My Children and One Life to Live that it is possible that there may be character cross-overs towards General Hospital. This was ABC’s original intention (my opinion) when Prospect Park leased the rights to both AMC and OLTL which as most soap fans know caused quite a bit of controversy as to just “how” characters could be utilized. Not meaning to go ‘off topic’ here, but there are also ‘rumors’ that NETFLIX or Hulu or Amazon may launch a new inception of the two iconic soaps.

I like it, Jake Martin. I hope so. Looove Vincent.
Is this your real name, or are you Tad’s brother? Just joshin’ with you. LOL.

Who killed Deimos? The writers.

That’s the truth. I loved to watch Vincent on the show when he first arrived . I wish that he could have stayed until Ron arrived . I don’t want to put too much on Ron’s shoulders ; just do the best that you can , Ron!

Mo…EXACTLY!!!!! Oh…as far as I’m concerned, those IDIOT WRITERS at DOOL DEGRADED AND TRASHED Vincent Irizarry’s wonderful acting abilities FROM BEGINNING TO END!!!!! STUPID AND CLUELESS WRITERS!!!!!

Take care, Mo.

Short and to the point, Jay. Thst’s why I love your posts….and also, entertaining, my friend.

Carlivati’s episodes will be airng in two weeks. I’m sure he’ll end this stupid murder mystery right away so he can take the show in a new direction, thank God.

I want Ron to do for Days what Sussman and Young are doing for Young and Restless.

you mean fall flat after a lot of hype?
late nit infomercials are more exciting than y n r these days
sussman s return has been a serious dissapointment so no , i hope ron delivers alot more than sussmans snail pace storytelling. dont make me laugh. devon and mariah, noah and tessa, hilary and jordan, sharon and scott, jack and his hated exstep mom, ash and ravi, nick and his deceased bros wife????….wow…rivetting

Sonny, implicated by his new mobster appearance. Coffee shop/”club” owner one day, slicked back hair, gun totting “suit” the next. I can’t help but laugh every time I see this ridiculousness on my screen.

I should have added, the killer will be some “throw away” character, not a major character. Someone above mentioned Xander-that makes sense, I think.

Hey dmr, maybe DOOL’s “Sonny” watches his GH namesake???? That would explain where he gets his inspiration for his newfangled wannabee gangster get-up/persona.

Shay, I watched a little of today’s episode while at home for lunch. Again, I had to laugh at Sonny attempting to be a thug and hard a$$. He was attempting to stand-up to Brady, reminding him who was boss. I was rolling my eyes and laughing. Sonny, who up until not that long ago, was wearing flannel print shirts and tending bar at his “club.” Now, he’s trying to tell Brady how to do his job. Little boy playing dress-up in his daddy’s suit. You are right, I think his plane may have made a pit-stop in Port Charles, lol.

Oh, my, Shay!!…..the black sea divides Sonny Kiriakis from Sonny Corinthos.
Sonny K’ heart is not black….that is the main difference between the two. While dmr’s description of Sonny ( of late) is dead on, he is easy on the eye and likable.
Perhaps, it’s just moi?
The writers are doing little Sonny a disservice. I like the ‘flannel shirts’ on him. LOL.
perfect visuals, dmr. LOL. Love your post.

Oh, CeeCee, I was simply jesting since I read dmr’s highly-amusing description of “Little Sonny’s” sudden affection for mobwear! It has been a repeated theme of their posts here, and I couldn’t help but be struck by not just the basic physical/circumstantial similarities of these two characters as they were mentioned, but I also suggested that perhaps “Little Sonny’s” mom had a layover in Port Charles and briefly encountered “Big Sonny’s” “Little Sonny,” if you know what I mean! (I’m trying to put that delicately, since the last time I broached the subject, it didn’t materialize online…LOL.) Of course, this was just a bunch of mindless and fantastical supposition about FICTIONAL characters in two distinctly different soap towns…but it was sorta fun, especially given how much we enjoy ribbing the Port Charles’ version and his inimitable style which seems to be spreading exponentially across the soap opera universe!!!

Celia and Shay, too funny! I just can’t stand the lazy writing, and I see it on all of the shows. Be creative! Be spontaneous! Be exciting! Except, most of the writing falls flat, IMO, unlike the “good ol’ days” of lunchtime, daytime TV.

Shay and dmr,
You know who I miss? Ces…..have not seen her/ him on any site, lately.
Ces had me in tears laughing when we would go back and forth about John Black and Marlena….” Hey Doc….” LOL.
Where are you, Ces??

That should read ( overstatement).

There is sn entire post preceding the “PS” one, Shay & dmr. See what I mean???? LOL….I take it with a grain of salt.
Sometimes one wonders who decides what to print? Amazing!! ….when a certain someone gets away with calling other posters every name under the vast, blue AMERICAN sun….lest we forget, this won’t be printed either. Where were the watchdogs, then?? We are in the minority, guys….hostile waters. LOL.
Double standard?

Amen to that notion, dmr!!! It just goes to show when the soaps don’t entertain and satisfy us with their homegrown creative efforts, we’ll go about imagining our own versions of their “fictional realities,” even if it requires cross-pollination of two very different species of soap animals! LOL…..

@CeeCee….It’s true….Ces is an absolute hoot! I miss not just their humorous comments, but a lot of other truly nice and fun people who we’ve encountered here through the years who just don’t seem to want to visit here much anymore…if at all! I guess they have just tired of the constant nonsense perpetrated by certain posters who feel the need to monopolize these threads with tedious post after tedious post of their personal/political agendas. It’s really quite sad, because there was once such a vibrant, friendly and welcoming, almost-party-like atmosphere to this website where good times were had by all but those few reliably sour malcontents…who unfortunately have stuck around to continue to spread more of their own patented style of misery!!!! Must be some life to be perpetually offended by every little thing, huh?

I love a murder mystery but soaps truly fail at writing a good one. Instead of whodunit intrigue we get everyone in sequence being arrested and then cleared. By the time they get to the reveal so much time has past that no one cares other then the story is FINALLY OVER!

That said it’s clearly Nicole since the actress is leaving.

Hey, Damien….I echo your words. I am sooo turned off by the exaggerated ‘interfamily” hook-ups and marriages on Y&R. It has become disgusting. Each has savored the other’s brother, sister, child, parents…… the worst? Victor and Sharon. Yuck!!
Adam’s return will ‘rampage’ Nick’s cozy cuddling with Chelsea.
So, yeah….Ron needs to do a one-eighty in weeding out ‘unwanted’ storylines, which have brought this, once, brillian soap to a low standard.

my theory is whoever has the amulet killed him and that person was hired for it and also hired to pass the blame to many people to create a conspiracy to keep people guessing

Days of our Lives New Gabi, Cherie Jimenez, Debut Date Revealed; Shares She First Auditioned for Role 15 Years Ago

In a not-then-but-now real-life story, Days of our Lives incoming Gabi Hernandez, actress Cherie Jimenez took to Instagram on Friday after it was revealed by Deadline, that her first airdate as the recast Gabi is next week on June 27th!

Jimenez has replaced longtime DAYS star, Camila Banus in the role. Previously, Banus made the decision to step away from the part after taking on the role in 2010. Camila was with the series on and off through 2023. To facilitate her exit, Gabi was sent to prison for the murder of Li Shin, only she didn’t commit the crime.

Cherie shared her emotions on finally being able to talk about being the new Gabi Hernandez DiMera. She expressed, “WOW ✨🎬 My heart is filled with immense gratitude over the opportunity of a lifetime. I am GABI HERNANDEZ DIMERA on the iconic DAYS OF OUR LIVES ⏳❤️‍🔥 It has been an absolute dream working on DAYS.”

As for her time so far at DAYS, Jimenez added,”These past 7 months I have worked harder than I ever have and now I get to share it with the world. Everyday I walk onto set I am in awe that I’ve been given the opportunity to live my dream. I get to work with the most phenomenal & hardworking cast and crew I’ve ever had the honor to work alongside.”

Jimenez, thanked among others the series producer, director and writers for trusting in her including: Janet Drucker, Noel Maxam, Ron Carlivati and Ken Corday, and her agents for helping her along the way in her show business journey.

She concluded with the most ironic twist of all, Cherie recalled, “At 22 years old an audition for the role of Gabi on Days of our Lives came into my life. It was not meant for me then. Now 15 years later at 36 years old the universe told me I was now ready to step into this role…Thank you ✨ …I am just beginning ✨”

So, are you looking forward to the debut of Cherie as the new Gabriella Hernandez DiMera? Comment below.

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Photo: JPI

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

Photo: JPI

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Photo: JPI

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

Photo: JPI

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
