Great news and well deserved. The Sonny/Paul/Will story is the best on Days and on all of daytime in my opinion. Congrats Days and the actors and writers.

That’s about the only award they are going to win in 2015 and 2016. This show is pure and utter crap.

No offense to “crap.” 🙂

@ blake – Totally the best news! The Sonny/Will/Paul storyline is the main reason I keep watching, it’s intriguing, real, honest, and totally deserving of this great award. Congrats to the writers and to the show for committing to these very worthy characters. And, to Freddie, Guy and Christopher, three professional actors who consistently deliver strong performances. What other soap right now, can say that with a very strong LGBT storyline? DAYS all the way. They’re committed to Will & Sonny and Paul. Thanks DAYS for stepping up and depicting challenging and empowering strong male characters who happen to be… Read more »

Days has so “many” reasons to BUILD around… this story line… and has the actors on DAYS are 2nd to none… with GH the potential for stir… emote… build… intrigue box office.. tune IN honestly… Leo.. you are being harsh there are so many fine actors attached to Will… Sonny… Paul and they are ALL bringing their A game… forward for the life of me… disgruntle mode I’m so over !

@ Patrick – I too, love other characters, the vets are tied to Sonny & Will. Grandma Marlena having a therapy session with Paul and learning of what William did. Classic. Grandma Kate encouraging Will to do whatever it takes to get to Paul’s truth. I love how DAYS utilized them, and I hope we see soon more of Marlena’s gentle coaching and words of wisdom to Will. Especially, since we have Lucas working with Will to dig deeper into Paul and Tori’s history. I would like to see Marlena help balance out Will’s choices moving forward. So, pleased that… Read more »

Glaad to see Freddie Smith in the back seat!

New drinking game: take a sip every time Will says “my husband!” God, if I’d thought of this game sooner, I’d be drunker than Y&R’s Neil, Y&R’s Nicki, and B&B’s Brooke put together!

Nu-Will (yes; I know he’s no longer “new,” but…) unnerves me. I have to fast-forward through his Sami-esque temper tantrums. Will, put on your big boy pants (and donate your cardigans) and take some responsibility for your actions and show some remorse. I think if it were another actor who portrayed Will, I would feel entirely differently. The actor just has never grown on me.

Me too. Always been a huge fan of Will & Sonny as a couple. And I have no problem with Guy Wilson. But I’m all for Paul & Sonny right now. Their past history is sooooo intriguing and the chemistry is off the wall. So PaulSon plz !!!

Guy Wilson lacks charisma. He is blah…he is no Chandler Massey. I just can’t even look at Will….a cheater is a cheater is a cheater. And, he is deceitful…removing his wedding band to boot?
Sonny is so vibrant and gorgeous…he and Paul just fit right.

@ AnneVanH – I too, have always loved Sonny & Will as a couple, and actually ever since Guy took over – he’s one me over, I love his version of Will…sure, it’s definitely a different approach yet, he and Freddie, also Christopher all have great chemistry together.

I’m pleased DAYS is continuing strong with this big storyline, and I hope Grandma Marlena can help Will see the bigger picture of what his future looks like with his husband, and Aria.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
