Hope intends to take care of Bo once and for all. Inspired by Carly’s killing of Lawrence, she has a few words with Vivian and then heads over to Bo’s. Meanwhile, Bo is taken aback by Ciara’s statement about Hope having a collection of men’s wallets. Justin meets with Bo at the Brady Pub. He is concerned about Hope, and Bo points out she hasn’t been herself. Bo receives a call from Hope, who is at their house. Using Ciara as a cover, she explains she needs to see him, and he agrees. Hope then calls Baker and chews him out for putting in an anonymous tip when she was trying to kill Bo, but forgives him and says goodbye. Later, Bo shows up and is wary of Hope’s mood. She tells him that Ciara was an excuse. They need to talk. Hope’s choice of words tips Bo off that something is definitely odd with her. Hope pulls a knife out of her purse and thrusts it at Bo. EJ’s proposal to Sami falls flat. She won’t accept it because she’s still in love with Rafe. EJ charmingly makes his case. Although she doesn’t say “yes,” EJ makes her keep the ring. Using a coded address he found in Nicole’s diary, Rafe tracks down Fay Walker. Fay doesn’t want to get caught in Nicole’s scheme, so she admits her daughter sent her an envelope and told her to protect its contents with her life. In Salem, Baker wins a final game of poker and plots to skip town. Nicole orders Marco to find Baker and keep him under house arrest. Brady stops by and he and Nicole, who can’t believe their relationship is really happening, finally make love. Off her conversation with Hope, Vivian puts Maggie on notice about Victor. Bo stops Hope from stabbing him with a knife. She figuratively rips his heart out when he hears the depth of the pain he’s caused her. Bo realizes that Hope’s behavior is a side effect of the sleeping pills, but also a result of her deep feelings of betrayal. He videotapes her confession to the muggings and his attempted murder. Later, she finally falls asleep, and Bo wonders what he’s going to do now. Brady discovers a photo of Nicole’s long-ago sonogram, and they share a moment of remembrance. This emotional moment is interrupted by a phone call from Baker, who informs Nicole that he’s been brought in by the police for illegal gambling. Nicole rushes to the police station. Baker insists she bail him out, or he’ll tell the cops she framed Arianna. Nicole says she’ll handle it. While he is alone in her apartment, Brady realizes Nicole has suddenly come into a large sum of money and is suspicious.Rafe gets Fay to talk to him about Nicole’s illicit activities. Fay turns over the materials from the envelope Nicole sent her, but Rafe is dismayed to realize she destroyed the contents. Rafe promises this conversation will go no further, but vows to piece the information back together and find out the truth. Carly swabs Daniel’s cheek to get his DNA sample. Later, she and Melanie bond. Carly realizes more clearly than ever that Daniel and Melanie will never forgive her if they discover the lie she now shares with Chloe. Carly confides to Chloe what she has on the line, and Chloe feels badly. Later, Chloe and Carly make secret plans to go to Saint Mary’s hospital in the morning. Daniel and Melanie also plan on going to Saint Mary’s at the same time for a patient consult.

Hope wakes up and Bo confronts her. She doesn’t remember anything from the night before – and Bo is forced to play the tape of her confession. Hope is horrified by what she sees. She insists she turn herself in. As Bo and Hope are about to leave for the station, Ciara arrives and wonders what is happening. Brady is convinced Nicole obtained money illegally. When she comes home, he subtly gives her a chance to come clean. Unaware Brady knows about the wire transfer, Nicole lies. Brady then makes angry love to Nicole. Afterwards, she is shocked when he denounces her. He knows she has lied to him, again.  He questions if there is anything else she’s lied about. At the same time, Dr. Baker waits for his bail to be paid. Roman receives a description of the man who bought the arson materials to torch Bo’s house and realizes it’s the man waiting to be released – Dr. Baker! Roman then recognizes him as the man who switched Sami’s baby. At St. Mary’s hospital, Chloe and Carly bond as they await the paternity test. Daniel and Melanie arrive at Saint Mary’s for a consult. In a mix up, Daniel is sent to Chloe’s room. Carly is shocked to see Melanie while Daniel enters Chloe’s exam room.  Bo and Hope face a horrible moment as they must tell Ciara that she is going away. Ciara’s pain is so strong that Bo and Hope reconsider her decision to give herself up. When Julie arrives, she asks what’s going on. Understanding only that Hope is upset, Julie blames Bo. Hope defends Bo and they go to the station. Brady confronts Nicole, who only proclaims her love for him and says nothing about her illegal account. Brady tells her it’s over between them. He drags her to the police station so she can confess where she got the money. Once there, Nicole comes face-to-face with Baker. Before Baker can say anything to Nicole, he sees Hope arriving and cries out to her.  Daniel speaks to a shocked Chloe through the curtain of the exam room, thinking she is his patient. Chloe remains silent, fearing he’ll recognize her. Meanwhile, a horrified Carly learns Daniel is also at Saint Mary’s. She realizes that he has inadvertently been sent to Chloe’s room. Daniel’s declaration of caring causes Chloe to break down, and he thinks he recognizes her voice. Carly stops Daniel just in time, explaining the mix-up, but he insists on apologizing to the woman. Melanie joins her mother and father as they head back to Chloe’s room. Daniel enters the room with an upset Carly and frantic Melanie. Will Chloe finally be caught?

Hope confesses to her crimes in front of everyone at the police station, much to their disbelief. Baker tries to stop her. Bo and Hope realize Baker must have been her accomplice. Bo shows Roman the tape of Hope. Later, Hope apologizes to Roman for mugging him. Hope then turns in her badge and tells Bo to arrest her, and he does. Baker decides not to rat out Nicole for framing Arianna. Brady realizes Baker must have been the one who drugged him and goes on the attack. Brady leaves with Nicole, who is encouraged that he changed his mind about turning her in for her illegal bank account. Brady says he won’t turn her in, but he’s done with her – she’s dead to him. He leaves, with Nicole crying after him. Julie, Doug and Caroline try to comfort a distraught and confused Ciara, as they also try to figure out what’s going on with Hope. Carly manages to keep Daniel from seeing Chloe in the hospital. Alone with Chloe, she realizes how much it is costing both of them. Carly stands to lose both Daniel and Melanie if they find out she kept the secret. Chloe has the test and they will get the results on her birthday.

Melanie is offered a job at Saint Mary’s and Sister Anne asks to meet with her for an interview. Melanie is impressed by Carly’s story – that her “patient” is an immigrant woman she’s helping. Melanie finally calls Carly “mom.” Chloe is about to sneak out of the hospital, when Daniel catches her. She covers that she got opera tickets and was looking for him there to spend the day with him. Daniel is moved, and they share a loving moment, even though Chloe is tortured.

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?

Shane Donovan has come to John and Marlena in Zurich needing their help, because the peacock featured six different and precious gemstones: a citrine, an amethyst, a ruby, emerald, sapphire, and an orange diamond.  Although the peacock was recovered, the stones were not and we are off to the races in this case of the missing jewels caper.  Shane wants John and Marlena to be an American couple who want the gemstones at an auction, but he tells them there is danger involved.  Jarlena are most them up for the task!
