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 gay.

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 ! Daniel, Jennifer… the magic elephant story befuddles me.. where are they going with this?

outside of that? I know DAYS is squandering… the potential of the canvas

will Stefano and Chad keep the DiMera intrigue forward
where will Kate go.. now that she’s sans co-ceo of Dimera enterprises

I was more than a little disappointed that Adrienne slap was all the build up went… with Justin already off to Dubai

I”M DONE with JJ and Paige… will they or won’t they get back together
ship her off to stanford… and focus.. if that’s the intent… no holds barred… who cares what jennifer thinks… if romance sex and pairing are : let JJ and Eve move

where are Hope and Aiden heading? I love that they are in love…

i’m so OVER Daniel and Nicole.. that sexy shave… was that leading to an all out no holds barred.. that Daniel didn’t have to say a thing… or carry every story line.. and that was enough to accept his dull presence? get rid of him

Nicole… as was stated on soapcentral.com… give Nicole her balls back… bad girl to the front… get your mojo back… shutz pa… arent’ you sick of Daniel, Eric, and Brady

get with Rafe!

I have not missed Ben, Jordan, and Clyde… dismissed

with the new head writing team… and executive producer or producer shuffle… if DAYs is moving past Sept, 2016… then listen to fan base

bring in the Donovan family… Shane and Kimberly… with Andrew

bring back Carrie… for Rafe.. and a new heroine

bring a love interest for Kayla

there’s not much going on in Salem these days

Brady and Melanie are as dull as daniel

I hope the story arc… for Kristen, Brady, Theresa… catapults

thank the stars… the thread this is about… Paul, Will, and Sonny… are leading the pack

I love this

ITA with everything Jeremy and Patrick said.

@ 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 Sonny is back, I want him to be stronger and tougher with Will. Will messed up…big time. Yet, I remain rooting for Will and Sonny. I do however, am intrigued to see how Paul fits in, haha-ha – as it were. Christopher is definitely equally a powerful actor, along with Freddie and Guy.

Congratulations to Days of our Lives for their GLAAD Media Award win. I so like the Sonny/Will/Paul storyline.

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.

I agree with you LeeAnn, Will & Sonny all the way! And, yes…Freddie, Guy, and Christopher are an awesome threesome, and are fantastic storytellers! Well done, DAYS! Big win for DAYS.

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 !!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

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.

Jeremy
Jeremy

@ 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.

correction: “and, actually ever since Guy took over – he’s WON me over, I love his version of Will…”

EP Ken Corday Shares Favorite All-Time DAYS Storyline Is Marlena’s Possession

While in Australia, Ken Corday, the executive producer of Days of our Lives, sat down for an interviews segment on 9Now’s Today Extra to talk about the rich history and enduring success of the long-running NBC daytime drama series, which is about to celebrate yet another anniversary in just a few short weeks on November 8th.

During the conversation, Ken was asked about his all-time favorite storyline, or if he had a frontrunner within the wealth of twist, turns, romances, adventure, and drama that has been part of the town of Salem for over five and a half decades.  Corday expressed that he did have a frontrunner … and that is was Marlena being possessed by the devil from the mid-90’s.

Ken told the Today Extra hosts: ‘When we took Deidre Hall, the lovely Marlena Evans, and had her possessed by the devil. It was right out of The Exorcist!’

The EP also admitted at first he was reticent to tell the story:  “I first said, ‘No, you’re mad this will never work!’ But we did it for a few weeks, and the story was meant to play out and then end at Christmas, but it ended up going on until Easter.”

That plot came from the mind of the late soap scribe, James Reilly, and had gone through many twists from when John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was a priest in one of that character’s many incarnations, and at the time, it was John who has to perform that exorcism on the woman he loved, after Stefano (the late Joe Mascolo) left Marlena vulnerable for demonic forces to enter her body.

There was the bed levitating, the yellow eyes, and more, along with Deidre Hall’s great performance, that made this one of the more spectacular soap opera tales ever told on daytime.   In fact, over the weekend, Hall commented on Corday’s choice tweeting:  “Couldn’t have said it better myself!!”

So, would you vote for Marlena’s possession as your top all-time Days story .. or do you have another pick that you think ranks at the top? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
