It’s the dawn of a new day in Salem as major storylines and big returns kick-off next week! First, Stephen Nichols makes his highly anticipated return to the canvas as Steven “Patch” Johnson and he brings with newcomer James Lastovic as Patch and Kayla’s (Mary Beth Evans) son Joey.

What will happen when Steve and Joey are reunited with Kayla?  Will it be one big happy family reunion? From this new promo from NBC, don’t count out on it!

And then, DAYS launches it’s serial killer storyline in the tradition of some of the great “killer” stories throughout its 50 year history.  The first victim is Serena Mason (Melissa Archer).

But from the looks of it, prior to her murder she was getting drunk, cavorting, or getting pretty angry at Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn)!  Is Chad at the wrong place at the wrong time?  The serial killer storyline ushers Archer off the series as well.

Watch the exciting DAYS promo after the jump! Then let us know if you are ready for the return of Patch! If you’re ready to go on the journey of the NBC soap’s latest murder spree storyline!

And nobody does serial killer stories better than Days– no matter who I think it is, it is never that person– if everything on screen lives up to the hype I will have to find a new nap time, because it doesn’t sound like I will be able to doze off during Days anymore.

Why, why, why oh WHY did they not pair Melissa Archer with an actor/character who had a little more pizzazz. Serena and Chad could have been fun together. Billy Flynn is charismatic. Nothing against Greg Vaughan because I love the guy, but Eric was so boring with Serena. It was the same thing with Melanie and Brady. THESE firecracker women NEED a guy who is a little bit of trouble!

Yeah, have to agree with you Chrystie, the pairing of Serena with Eric was really really uninteresting, no sparks between the players at all. The stupid storyline involving that Elephant with the secret compartment didn’t help matters.

I started watching because of MA I will stop watching because of MA she was not paired well or written for well. My two favorite daytime actors were “killed off” in the same month.

That’s rough. I’m a big fan of Melissa Archer and Michael Easton. Would love to see them paired up again.

Hell yes! Why can’t these people get it right. They were both killed off. Perfect opportunity. They are golden!

Playing DAYS detective, I think the killer will be Ben. He was abused as a child, he has anger issues to spare, and he could be doing it to frame Chad. Especially since Aiden and Clyde are in the mix, both probable victims of the killer….Ben is connected to both. I certainly hope, if I am correct, the powers that be will not get all pouty and petulant, pull a Ron Carlivati, and ridiculously alter the story until it makes no sense whatsoever.

Ha! No kidding. Great theory by the way.

Thanks!!! I think, like Matt Bohmer, the dude playing Ben will play the serial killer, go out with a huge bang, and then begin his Hollywood career. He has grown beyond the physique to be a pretty competent actor, and I hope I am right because I cant see anyone else on the canvas being the killer, besides Andre, and thats old news…been there done that. Or it could be Anne!!!! Just because she hates everyone!!

Jeremy

@Dylan, now I love the idea of Anne, possibly being the KILLER. I think Ben is a great idea, though like many of the characters in Salem, Ben would be predictable, I think DAYS will do the unexpected, and a character like Anne – but not Anne, will be revealed in November as the KILLER. Perhaps, someone’s contract that’s concluding soon? And, what about Maxine, WTH has she been?!?! lol.

Nice to see the show great again. Great promo! I Serena had a great place to die, at least in a bed of flowers.

I think it’s far too early to say the show is great or must watch tv. Hardly. Let’s hope these new writers can work some magic cuz otherwise I’m out. Bad writing, bad hair, boring stories, too much Abigail, clothes that often don’t match the season, shoddy sets…………

Even though I’m looking forward to the 50th anniversary and the return of Patch and Bo and all the others, today’s writing (Fri, Aug 22) showed that Josh and Dena are getting back to the roots…..I know a lot of people crave the excitement and adventure of serial killings and drug dealers and crazy Clyde, but I really enjoyed the tender moments today between Victor and Caroline, Maggie and Caroline…Marlena and John….the dance…these scenes pulled at my heartstrings and dare I say, I shedded a little tear getting all emotional. This is what a good show is about…connecting with the… Read more »

I just started watching again because of the new writers and I’ve already seen a huge improvement! I’m down for this serial killer ride. Sorry MA is the first casualty, she will be missed.

As long as Clyde gets killed off or cut from canvas, works for me. I’m fearful that they are bringing back vets to kill them off, like they always do “Jack” Matthew Ashford. Also, so excited about Patch!

I love a good serial killer mystery. I wish they had given Melissa Archer better writing. I think she gave her best with what she was given. Hope she shows up on another soap.

I love Stephen Nichols! Though I must admit that I was and will always be a huge Stefan Cassadine fan, I will follow Stephen to any soap. Cant wait. 🙂

I know this may be slightly “off-topic” but would it be all right if I just asked, what happens now for Will now that Sonny has gone, and what is to become of Paul? When we last saw Paul he was in the Park and he was crying….is this the last image we are to have of Paul? Also, what became of Derrick? He wanted a chance with Paul but Will manipulated the situation – and now, it just seems like the whole show is taking a different direction – shouldn’t they at least provide a healthy resolve for Will… Read more »

hey Tom, I believe Freddie is briefly returning in November as Sonny. I think Paul will definitely continue in story as will Will. And, I think Derrick is a goner. I think it’s a great concern wondering what will happen with these imperative characters on the canvas. Just like last year when Will went to LA for a few months, I think with Sonny away, we will see focus on Will and Paul living there lives in Salem, I don’t see these two characters growing close or becoming friends anytime soon, the show will be changing directions in many directions,… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
