At the party for Sydney’s birthday and Johnny’s homecoming, Sami and Nicole continue their uneasy truce. Sami learns about Nicole’s electronic tracking device and asks if she really wants to marry a man who doesn’t trust her. Back at the mansion, EJ is grateful to Nicole for her alliance and thanks her by finally taking off her tracking bracelet. The moment grows intimate and EJ winds up kissing her. Down in the basement, Rafe gets dizzy and passes out. Stefano revives him. Rafe wonders why DiMera is going through so much trouble to keep him alive. Back at the loft, Sami starts to get frisky with imposter Rafe. They begin to make love. Meanwhile, Gabi confides to Will that she’s bothered that her brother isn’t acting quite like himself. Bo is released from custody. Hope is surprised to learn that Bo and Carly have broken up and that Carly has moved out of the house. Justin works on Hope’s case and is cautiously optimistic. Later, Bo arranges for Ciara to visit, and the family shares an emotional reunion. At the hospital, Carly reveals to Jennifer that she’s no longer with Bo. Both women realize they are at a crossroads in their lives, and they vow to help each other through their difficult time. EJ and Nicole make love. Meanwhile, Sami and imposter Rafe similarly get “reacquainted.” Later, imposter Rafe confidentially calls EJ and thinks he has passed the test with flying colors. Unbeknownst to him, Sami feels there’s something still not right with “Rafe.” Meanwhile, Stefano threatens the real Rafe. Taylor bonds with Theo and Lexie. Taylor rebuffs Lexie’s suggestion that she stay in town and see Nicole again. However, after giving it more thought, she shows up once again at Nicole’s door. Jennifer thanks Daniel for saving her life, and their friendship continues to grow. Chloe tries her best to get Daniel alone to talk. After he shuts her down, she finally realizes she has lost him forever and falls into a deeper depression. Meanwhile, Kate tries to convince Melanie to take Parker away from Chloe and raise him with Philip. At the same time, Philip demands Maggie let him see Melanie, but he becomes sidetracked when he holds his son. Later, Melanie is completely open with Philip about what she thinks, but her mind is not made up. Philip confronts Kate on what she’s up to, and Melanie confronts Chloe. Chloe’s issues about Parker become clearer, but she remains at sea. Kate wants Philip to use Parker to reconnect with Melanie. Philip thinks his mother needs to stay out of his relationship and leave Chloe alone. Kate disagrees and Philip says she doesn’t have a choice. At the same time, Melanie and Chloe spar. Melanie comes to the conclusion that Kate is right – Chloe is not capable of taking care of Parker. Later, Melanie calls Kate and tells her she’s “in.” At the same time, Philip finds Chloe and promises to support her and Parker.

Stefano wants complete cooperation from Rafe, or Allie Horton will disappear from Salem forever. Furious Rafe can’t believe Stefano would hurt the little girl. Stefano explains he won’t harm Allie, but he’ll send her off to live with another family and Sami will never see her daughter again. He won’t have to do this as long as Rafe follows orders. Later, EJ visits and Rafe wants to know what his game is. EJ thinks it would be easier to show him than tell, and Rafe comes face-to-face with his doppelganger. Imposter Rafe assures EJ that Sami wasn’t aware she wasn’t making love to her husband. Meanwhile, Sami calls Carrie and confides that something was off. Imposter Rafe overhears and manages to cover his “change” nicely. Taylor visits Nicole and gives her her money back. Taylor wishes they could start over, but Nicole says it isn’t a good time. Taylor goes to the Brady Pub where she runs into Sami. Sami tells Taylor she doesn’t have to listen to Nicole. If she wants to stay in town, she should. Meanwhile, Nicole looks at the framed photo of herself and Taylor as kids. She goes to the Brady Pub, where she sees Sami has her fangs in her sister. She tells her to butt out. Sami balks and suggests Nicole be a better sister and ask Taylor to be a bridesmaid. A recovering Jennifer is desperate for info on Hope’s status. Daniel warns she cannot tax herself. She must take it easy. Nathan and Jennifer talk about his situation and his renewed fight for Melanie. Later, after Nathan goes, Jennifer gets out of bed and collapses. Daniel takes her back and gives her a sedative. Jennifer, under the effect of the sedative, says that she wishes Jack was more like Daniel. Chad gets a job and Kate learns he’s going by his new last name – DiMera. Rafe is in awe and stares at his imposter. EJ tells Rafe that they had to make the switch sooner than planned to take advantage of Rafe’s accident. Rafe guesses that EJ and Stefano are keeping him alive in order to fill in the blanks of his life for his replacement. Rafe maintains the plan still won’t work because Sami will never believe the replacement is him. Smug, EJ says she already does and shows him video of Sami and imposter Rafe kissing at Sydney’s party. Nicole tells Taylor she can stay in Salem if she promises to stay away from Sami. Taylor decides she’s better off leaving. After she goes, Sami tells Nicole she chased away the best thing that ever happened to her; someone who wants nothing from her except to be part of a family. Defensive Nicole thinks Sami is the last person to be giving her advice, and they start to get into it when imposter Rafe interrupts. He’s great with both of them, but when Nicole leaves and Sami isn’t looking, he instinctively checks out Nicole. Brady runs into Taylor, and tells her Nicole needs her. He convinces her to stay in Salem.

Victor tells Kate that Titan bought a company without his knowledge or approval. He thinks Vivian found a loophole to the papers she signed which gave control back to him. He tries to track her down. Kate gives him back her keys to the mansion. She says she and Stefano have reconciled and she’s moving back permanently with him. Victor thinks Kate is being unwise, given that she continues to keep secrets from him. He is convinced she’ll be back. Brady overhears Victor screaming at his lawyers about Vivian’s loophole. Brady reveals that he tricked Vivian into signing control of Titan over to him – he now owns the company. Furious Victor feels Brady has betrayed him and the family. Vivian realizes that Kate is moving back into the DiMera mansion. She warns Stefano that Kate is dangerous, and will always keep secrets from him just as Vivian is sure Stefano is keeping secrets from Kate. While Vivian denies she wants to be the next Mrs. Stefano DiMera, she does insist she could be Stefano’s friend. Kate walks in on this, and is furious. Vivian goes and Stefano assures Kate she has nothing to worry about. As long as he and Kate are honest with one another, they’ll be fine. Stefano fears EJ is falling in love with Nicole. EJ denies it and makes it sound more like he’s settling. Stefano wonders if it’s enough. EJ isn’t interested in love. He says he’s happy with the life he’ll have with Nicole and the children. In the meantime, Nicole tells Chloe she thinks she and EJ might have a chance at falling in love again. Nicole goes home to EJ and they make love. After EJ leaves, Stefano tells Nicole there’s something she needs to know about her husband-to-be. At the pier, EJ bumps into Taylor, and the sparks fly. Chloe is stricken when Nicole asks her to be her maid-of-honor. She tries hard to be happy for Nicole and keep her act together. After Nicole leaves, Chloe bakes cookies and is interrupted when she gets a call from the pharmacy about Parker’s medication. Not wanting to disturb Parker, Chloe decides to leave him by himself while she picks up the meds. However, she forgets that she has left the oven on with the cookies inside. Parker is alone in his baby basket when smoke starts seeping from the oven. Hope prepares for her hearing. She and Bo fear the judge will send her back to prison. Bo goes to Victor for help in getting Hope out. Victor refuses because he knows Hope wouldn’t want that. Bo has to fight for Hope’s freedom himself. He tells Hope the impassioned plea he plans to make before the judge. After the hearing, Justin gives Bo and Hope the good news – she won’t be going back to prison. Bo and Hope are overjoyed, and after Justin leaves, Bo finally tells Hope he loves her and he wants her to come home with him.  Abe and Lexie are delighted by Taylor’s connection with Theo.

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?
