Next week is game-on for Days of our Lives!  NBC has released their latest promo ushering in the excitement of the drama ahead.

Up first, will be the highly-anticipated debut of Santa Barbara iconic fan favorite, A Martinez in his new DAYS role as Eduardo.

What will happen when Rafe (Galen Gering) sees his father again?  What will happen when Eve (Kassie DePaiva) sees her ex again?  What secrets is Eduardo harboring?  Meanwhile later in the week, Thaao Penghlis returns as Andre DiMera just as Stefano’s (Joe Mascolo) health is deteriorating, and just as the necktie serial killer is on the loose!

Does Andre have something to do with the killings?  Maybe so, when the next intended victim is none other than Marlena (Deidre Hall)!  The same woman he used mind control on during the Salem Stalker storyline!  Is this all just coincidence?

Watch the latest NBC teaser for Days of our Lives after the jump. Then weigh-in:  Are you excited for the debut of A Martinez?  Do you think Andre is a major mastermind behind the necktie serial killings?  Or, could he just be a red-herring? Comment below!

I wish I would have been there when all these storylines were evolving. I do not know Andre, his history with Marlena…or the developing melodrama of that time. Now, the suspicion shifts from Clyde to Andre. I think it could be either. Is all of Clyde’s intimidation of the nice residents of Salem, a ploy by the writers? We all know how the story goes. If James Read is to be a permanent fixture, then he is not the killer. The same goes for Andre or Aidan. I’m a little confused….the implication is not clear. Is Eduardo Eve’s ex? Paige’s… Read more »

So, according to the promo, we know, the killer is a “he”. Looking at the height and size of the killer attacking Marlena, it looks to be Ben, or Clyde. Someone tall and lean. However, I have never been sold on Ben or Clyde or Aidan for that matter as the killer. It just can’t be that easy. Ok, well, out of those three, maybe it is Ben. But, honestly, I’m not feeling it for those three characters. I think I need to find out WHO the third victim is, to really get a better sense of motive and patterns.… Read more »

I think that the serial killer will be prevented from killing Marlena by her grandson Will. In saving his grandmother Will becomes the third victim because he has seen the killer. It’s been announced that Will is leaving the canvas. And Corday did warn that more than one legacy character would be killed off permanently. And it would be reason enough for Sami to return for a short time.

It looks like Eduardo had/has a secret life, CeeCee.

Eduardo must’ve left his wife and children and met up with Eve and fathered Paige…then left Eve and Paige high and dry.

I seem to recall Paige and JJ babysat little Arianna. It’s too bad she didn’t know she was caring for her niece.

Of course, you’re right in your assumption, Jeremy. Yo usually are. That’s why I keep emphasizing the fact that all fingers point to Clyde to throw us off track. However, it doesn’t mean that he or Ben or Aidan didn’t do it. Everyone here has great, sensible predictions. I still feel these guys are all connected somehow. Plus, whoever is exiting the stage….well, he is probably the culprit.
Now, is it true Daniel, doctor of all trades, is also leaving, or fired? Was that done to leave Nicole’s door wide-open for messed-up Eric?

Intriguing, isn’t it, 4ever? I am wondering how Rafe and Gabi will react to this. Will this revelation entice Rafe to go full force in finding his sister’s killer? Or, will he be so disgusted that he will fumble?

You think you missed stories…lol..do you remember when Diedre Hall was Elektra Woman on ABC..when Wesley Eure who played Mike Horton on Days was on ABC’s Land of the Lost at the same time..and the Salem Strangler storyline that gained Days 80’s ratings..and then the Salem slasher who killed my favorite actress of the time Phelice Sampler’s Rene Dumonde..I loved her almost as much as Edge of Nights Raven Swift..Sharon Gabet…girl you must be very young…LOL

I do have to say I AM NOT an A.Martinez fan..I watched Santa Barbara from day one and off and on to the last show and still don’t get all that Eden/Cruz hype..I was a Lane Davies Mason fan all the way. He’s of the Maurice Bernard school of acting…so not into it.

Hi, davlestev1.
LOL. Yeah, I missed all of them….these shows were on a decade before I was born. But, I searched the Internet. Marlena was such a pretty girl …well, still is. There is a slew of the shows on utube. Thanks, good stuff. I like it.

I asked that before…is Paige related to Rafe…i believe Paige has a twin and one of them was murdered just like when Marlena’s twin sister was murdered by the 1980s Salem Strangler…or Paige is in the Witness Protection Program but i still say she has a twin…as for the killers biggest target that would have to be Stepahno making Aiden another suspect…Andre is like Victor Cassidine on GH…and ironically played by both actors but you already know that…lol…its odd now seeing little Ciara and Chase knowing soon they will be troubled teens!!!

perhaps Eduardo knows so much more about Eve… then even she does that she could have a twin daughter out their ? dang… this would make her exit that much more easier, for me to deal I like the idea that Eve could have a child out their with Frankie… and for whatever reason won’t acknowledge it… and it will surface? I’m still punched in the gut over KD’ Eve. it was a treat seeing “little” Ciara… one last time… as she gave approval to Hope that the two of them are ready to move on and become a family… Read more »

I also believe Eddie dumped Rafe’s momma for Eve(Rafe dont know she was the other woman) and Rafe will not like having him in Salem!!!

Maybe I’d be more interested in watching this if Kassie wasn’t playing Eve.
To me, this is just Days hiring any actor that is available that was a “big star” on their show and bringing them onboard. I think Days has enough big stars on their own show — as GH has — that we don’t need A Martinez coming on board. I never was a SB fan and never bought into the whole Cruz & Eden story.

On another note, Clyde is creepy, reminds me of that monster on Wolf Creek. He should be the killer.

CeeCee

CeeCee

Yeah, Ces. This seems to be the trend the remaining soaps are all doing. Melissa Archer, Cady McLain, Michael Easton; to name a few. I have said this over and over, Ces. These spectacular thespians are butchered each and every time. Lol. Clyde is kind of scary and intimidating. The writers are trying to make him into an ominously smooth Svengali, that’s for sure. James Read himself was pretty well known back in the 70’s TV. Sometimes I catch a few episodes of REMINGTON STEELE. He did cut quite an impressive figure. And, I do agree. I want him to… Read more »

You’re right and I’m not fond of the ring-around-the-rosy of soap stars; especially when they join inflated casts like GH & DOOL and put fan faves on back burners.
I do not like Ben and from what I see, I don’t like Aiden; so not Hope’s type!! Clyde needs to go. Fair to say I don’t even like Abigail?

I stumbled upon DAYS again by accident one day and got pulled back in with one episode. Since Soapnet went away and my market stopped showing DAYS, I had lost familiarity with the show. Now, the local NBC affiliate has returned DAYS to the 1pm time slot, and it comes on after Y&R every evening on Pop. DAYS was my first favorite, before I got hooked on Y&R. Y&R was always smart and compelling, while DAYS was that guilty pleasure, yet felt comfortable, like family, like home. It’s wonderful the show is refocused on its legacy characters and maintains cross-generational… Read more »

Glad to have Thaao back and A join the cast
If Eduardo was Paige’s father, why was her last name Larsen and not Hernandez?
And Rafe and Paige were 1/2 siblings living in the same town and they never knew it? Didn’t Eve know?
It would be too easy to make Andre the killer!

davlestev1
Guest
davlestev1

I do have to admit it makes no sense to kill off Paige and then bring her father on canvas only to get rid of Eve..Killing off Will and axing major stories to SORAS teens..I don’t know if all this is going to be beneficial or detrimental once all the players are in place and the serial killer is revealed..i’m skeptical..but hopeful..

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I still think Paige has a twin and will be back or her death was faked as part of the witness protection program…still i think she has a twin who died in her place just like Samantha died and we all thought it was Marlena during the original Salem Strangler!!

davlestev1

davlestev1

I mentioned you in response to CeeCee..LOL..gotta love jimh..but why would you bring on this fantastical storyline to accomadate Eve and Paige for A.Martinez benefit..a new piece of cloth..Paige is dead..Eve is gone..Dena Higley suddenly took off for the hills of who knows where..and Josh Griffith isn’t even trusted enough in his writing for Sony to leave him be and see what he does..Sony the new P&G of daytime soaps…

Futile, isn’t it , davlestev1. Exactly the reason why I think Paige is not dead.

You know CeeCee there is a contingency that likens this storyline to the salem strangler..but sitll..ok then.. hearken back to an older storyline but give us some clue there is more than one child Eve had. And if so why bring on A.Martinez as the dad and throw Eve into limbo by firing Kassie Depaiva even if she does reunite with a never knew i had one other daughter..sadly.. the dialogue may have slowed to real conversations at the expense of details in an otherwise great story..great dialogue can’t be a substitute for rushed story..it has to be an extension… Read more »

I’m still going with Clyde being the killer. It’s too obvious all of those who are dying are ones that can help prove Chad’s innocence. While have to wait to have an opinion about A Martinez.

Andre would have to be in cahoots with Clyde to have any part in the Salem killings. Ordinarily I’d say there is no connection. But suppose Cyde and Andre share a common enemy – Chad! It is possible that an alliance was formed between Clyde and Andre to frame Chad. But I think Andre would doublecross Clyde – because Andre is evil and ruthless to boot! One the other hand Clyde could be working alone, but he somehow gets in the way of Andre’s agenda. So there are various possibilities. Heard Marlena survives the attack! Glad of that! There is… Read more »

I am looking forward to the “Eduardo” story. Right now my biggest curiosity is how Rafe will respond to being dethroned as the “father figure” in the Hernandez family. That will be a good story!

@Gmbenet – I’m hoping that Andre decides to find out who killed EJ. And when Andre finds out it was Clyde I hope he goes postal. Andre may be evil and ruthless but he is so good. I also wish the writers could have brought back Bart or his identical twin.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”
