The stars of Days of our Lives not only celebrated the longest running scripted show in NBC history by throwing a rocking party at West Hollywood, California’s, House of Blues, but they also performed at it!  Showing that there is no lack of talent from the young set and the Salem veteran set, castmates took their turn on the microphone and on the legendary House of Blues stage performing numbers from some of the greatest acts of soul, rock and pop.

All of the members of the DAYS 45 performing troupe were accompanied by the drummer for the night, DAYS, executive producer, Ken Corday!   From Eric Martsolf’s versio’s of Feel Like Makin Love, Bad to the Bone and Whole Lotta Love, to Nadia Bjorlin and Mark Hapka’s duet of Cruisin’, to the encore led by Bill Hayes of Birthday by the Beatles, it was quite the rousing night of fun!  And those are just a few of the numbers!  Wally Kurth, Molly Burnett, Arianne Zuker, Kyle Lowder, Alison Sweeney were just a few of the other Salemites who took to  the stage.

It would have been nice to actually be able to USE the pictures. 🙁 I’d have been perfectly fine with copyright watermarks plastered all over the one I wanted to use. Instead I can’t use it at all. 🙁 Just a little something to keep in mind in next time. Oh well, They’re still good pictures, It’d have just been nice if I’d been able to USE them! *shrugs* Oh well, Hopefully next time you’ll use my suggestion. 🙂 Happy Birthday DOOL! 🙂

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?
