Taylor urges Nicole to set EJ free. Nicole refuses and orders Taylor to leave town or she’ll destroy EJ. Meanwhile, Stefano tells his son that he believes Rafe2 has fallen in love with Sami. EJ is still convinced he’s come back to extort money from them. Stefano warns that either way, the imposter must be eliminated. Later, Nicole shows up and tells EJ that Taylor unknowingly blabbed about him running the drug business. Now Nicole has even more ammunition against him. She also informs him that her sister is leaving town. EJ is devastated. Meanwhile, Taylor bids goodbye to Lexie and Brady. Rafe runs into Dario, who is shocked to learn he’s back with Sami. Rafe wants to reach out to his brother but knows he must act more like his imposter. After Rafe leaves, Melanie advises Dario not to give up on Rafe – family is too important. Meanwhile, Rafe pays his doppelganger a visit. Carly realizes she’s falling for Daniel, but tries to cover when she goes on a family lunch date with him and Melanie. The three of them bond as Melanie tells her parents she wants to become a nurse practitioner. Later, Carly goes back to the hospital where she confides in Lexie about her feelings for Daniel. Alone in her office, Carly is able to resist taking a pill as she thinks about her family. Brady warns Daniel to be good to Jennifer. Meanwhile, Hope visits Jennifer and finds her cousin contemplating sexy lingerie. Jennifer confides she’s worried she doesn’t stack up to Rebecca and Chloe. Hope helps her work through her insecurities. But after Hope leaves, Jennifer still decides to tweak her appearance,

EJ is devastated to learn from Nicole that Taylor has left town. After receiving confirmation from Lexie, he is pushed further to a dark place. Angry at the world, EJ assures an impatient Stefano that he will personally take care of the Rafe imposter, who, of course, is actually Rafe. Meanwhile, Rafe grills his lookalike to get information on the DiMeras. After much give and take, Rafe still comes up empty. The imposter warns that the DiMeras will catch on to his impersonation act sooner rather than later. When they do, Rafe is a dead man. Brady finds Nicole crying in the park. He points out that she has pushed away everyone who has ever loved her, including him. He warns she has no one but herself to blame for her misery. Justin and Adrienne arrange for Chloe to have a brief visit with Parker. Chloe is overjoyed, but heartbroken when she must once again say goodbye to her son. She promises the social worker that she will continue her progress in becoming a good mother. Meanwhile, Quinn works on both his drug business and another mystery side business. Later, he meets up with Chloe and charms her. He invites her to dinner and she gladly accepts.

Vivian is pleased to learn Maggie and Victor have split. She goes to Maggie’s house to rub it in. Victor comes upon them and chastises Vivian, but Maggie is hurt anew when he quickly leaves afterwards. EJ explains to Stefano why he personally must be the one to eliminate the “imposter.” Stefano insists they hire someone else. EJ ignores his father and secretly uses a dirty cop to call Rafe and tell him Dario has been detained on the pier. EJ lies in wait for him with a gun. When he hears footsteps, he moves to confront him and is stunned to come face-to-face with Taylor instead. Rafe finds Fay’s cameo in the imposter’s duffel bag and wonders to whom it belonged. Nicole drops by the loft and is surprised Rafe is back. He’s stunned to learn “he” (the imposter) kissed Nicole. Later, Nicole asks Stefano what he intends to do about Rafe. Stefano shuts her down.

Daniel tells Victor he plans to take things slow with Jennifer. Meanwhile, Jennifer tells Abigail she looks forward to doing just the opposite. Daniel arrives at Jennifer’s and is surprised by her new, sexy look. He’s even more surprised (and puzzled) by her seductive behavior as she insists they have an intimate dinner at home. Later, Daniel gets beeped and tells Jennifer he has to go to the hospital. He gives her a peck on the cheek, leaving Jennifer wondering where she went wrong. Jealous Dario watches Brady and Melanie play pool with Chad and Abigail. He blows up at Melanie and leaves. Melanie wonders what his problem is. Abigail points out that it’s her.

On his way to the pier, Rafe runs into Dario and realizes the DiMeras were trying to set him up. Meanwhile, Sami is furious at discovering the cameo and she wonders what other women the imposter hurt. Rafe returns to the loft and they decide to question the imposter once more. They are waylaid by Gabi, who rips into her brother for his erratic behavior. She suddenly collapses and Rafe rushes her to the hospital. When he learns Gabi is fine, he returns to the loft and hears from Caroline that Sami has left. He realizes Sami has gone to see the imposter on her own. Meanwhile, Sami arrives at the secured room and is alarmed when she finds it empty. Suddenly the door closes behind her, and she whirls around to face the imposter, who is free from his bindings. At the pier, EJ is stunned that Taylor has not left town after all. She takes him back to her hotel room, and she explains she only wanted Nicole to think she left; she won’t give up on being with him. Noting his gun, EJ sadly admits he hasn’t changed. He’s surprised when Taylor accepts him anyway. EJ and Taylor finally make love, together at last.

Jennifer is disappointed when Daniel leaves their date, not knowing he’s trying to be respectful. Maggie drops by and she and Jennifer drown their sorrows in ice cream. Later, Daniel returns and Jennifer looks a mess. She’s mortified but he tells her she’s adorable and that he wants her just the way she is. They end up in a steamy embrace. Dario denies to Adrienne and Justin that he cares for Melanie, but they know better. Later, Melanie confronts Dario, and to his own surprise, he finally admits he has feelings for her. Chloe meets Quinn for a date and almost catches him watching the video he took of them making love. She remains unaware of his dark side. Later, Quinn runs into Vivian at the park and it’s clear they know one another.

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?
