DAYS Sneak Preview Unveiled: A Non-Stop November To Remember Filled With Dramatic Shockers!

Courtesy/NBC

At the conclusion of the annual Day of Days fan event on Saturday, the attendees were treated to the first look of the NBC daytime drama series fall sneak preview promo, followed by its posting on NBC.com and social media.

In it, the preview reveals that while Will (Chandler Massey) has been found he has amnesia, and he thinks none other than Sami (Alison Sweeney) was his former wife! While Susan (Eileen Davidson) continues her twisted vendetta and ways to keep him apart from the family and loved ones he doesn’t realize are really his!

Then, Theo (Kyler Pettis) is shot, and JJ (Casey Moss) is the culprit, and lives are changed forever. Abe(James Reynolds) is hit by devastating news that his son’s life hangs in the balance, and that causes a ripple effect in Salem, and longtime family ties and friendships are on the edge.

And in a shocker, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) is back, when none other than Sami enlists him to help jog Will’s memory back in the most frightening way. Ciara comes home with Victoria Konefal taking over the role. While that is happy news for Hope (Kristian Alfonso), she is faced with heartbreak when a rift goes down between her and Rafe (Galen Gering), and later in the promo it appears that Sami and Rafe are going to hit the sheets!

Oh, my God!!! We got our DAYS back!!! Ron is hitting it hard out of the ballpark. With material like this, the show better go up in the ratings. And how about more than a one year guarantee every year to keep DAYS on the air? It does suck every year when it comes to renewal time if the network will let show show stay on the air. It’s been that good so let us have 2 or 3 years of guaranteed DAYS.

Wow! This looks incredible.

Back when Will was killed and viewers were angry i said Will was still alive and would return with amnesia-the only thing i got wrong was i thought Sami would know and was hiding him from Ben…but will Ben be any help-he did not kill CM’s Will…he killed GW’s Will-lol

Andrew Hass
Andrew Hass

Well Sami could think that Will seeing Ben again could help him regain his memories since Ben is the one who attacked Will.For example Sami could think Will’s amnesia was the result of the trauma of Ben strangling him and so she may think Will seeing Ben again will unlock Will’s memories.Plus Chandler re-shot the scenes of Ben “killing” Will and so those probably will air when Will comes face to face with Ben again.Plus i can’t wait to see the scenes between Sami and Ben because i have a feeling Sami won’t hold back on Ben since he tried to kill her son.Yes Will is alive but Ben still tried to kill him and the only reason Sami may not try to hurt Ben is because she needs his help in getting Will to remember.

Violet Lemm

Sammy will really go ballistic, if she ever finds out that good old Clyde was the one who had EJ killed. I don’t think Ben even knows.

Jimh

But if i was Sami i wouldnt want the man who we thought killed her son anywhere near him…instead i would had brought Sonny and Will’s daughter Arianna to help regain his memory which i believe would had made more sense!!

Celia

True, true and true…I was right there with you, Jimmy.
And, now I think you may be right again. Remember when you recently suggested that Susan may be Kristen posing as her?
Satan had said that Susan would not have the wherewithal to pull off a stunt of this magnitude……so, you may be right; it’s Kristen.
All I can say is …I am enjoying Susan so much…good or bad, LOL.
Now, I await Vivian with open arms.

Claudio
Claudio

Yes Celia my friend, my madam Vivian will be back soon to cause trouble. I cannot wait to see my madam Vivian back on Days. Please Days bring back, Ivan her side kick. Days is getting good now. Susan Banks is a hoot Lol. Kristen is mean mean mean and Sami is mean mean mean too funny. take care Celia my friend.

Celia
Celia

@Claudio…
Yes, Claudio….you are the sweetest man. Who loves Vivian????? Who loves her MORE????
I do, I do…..kidding….I know how much you are into Vivian—most likely a lot more than I. But, she’s up there for me, as one of the most fascinating characters, EVER!
Later, my friend.

Andrew Hass
Andrew Hass

Well it looks like a lot of exciting things are going to happen on Days Of Our Lives in the coming weeks and even months.

Jimh
Jimh

Wow..i will be watching regularly again…i still wonder if Kristen is posing as Susan or is that really Susan…Ciara looks promising…Rafe and Sami…how about Ciara and Rafe…that would be almost like a Doug, Julie and Addie rebooted love triangle-and i am all for that-hear me Days…its Christmas season and that latter part is the only thing on my Wish List!!!

Jimh
Jimh

Vivian is Days answer to Ghs Helena Cassidine-looks like she already got Nickolos-lol

Patrick

i’m so excited for the – posters – here

that certainly looks like the sexy as all get out.. Eileen Davidson’ Kristen.. on the last shot of this hugely HOTTED out promo. it’s ingenious.. if you look again.. at how much Chandler Massey looks like and sounds. like with his laugh.. is so enjoying working with ED’s.. Susan and/or Kristen.. she looks back at him.. with care and just an all around feast of one actor to another.

I can’t believe the excitement … no reason to contain it, either

when it comes to Vivian.. and whomever.. Tyler Christopher is playing…

stupendous

high 5 salute and applause for ; @DOOL production team

i’m stunned all around.

Celia
Celia

Oh, Patrick!!!! Chandler grew up….even his voice changed…..listen carefully….compare; it’s deeper…..he’s a man!!
I know that, as myself, you and your poet-heart, notice these minute ( but so huge) details.
I cannot stop singing Days’ praises!!!!!!

Patrick
Patrick

I’m just gobsmacked… FEAST

what other word is their… for the diehard

Yeah, I DID NOT Expect to see Ben, back

major treat. Sam will go to great lengths for us fans.. and Sami , as the mother lion she is.. will … do what she can… and as only Sami does… let’s the chips fall where they may… and hope for the best…

even we know.. she wants him back at any cost.. and it’s not selfishly.. because all of Salem loves Will.

high drama

woah… just seeing Louise Sorel and Tyler Christopher in the promo

every trigger … all your senses are guarded and dam break

thee show of show

Karen Clark

Hoping that Tyler is Nicholas Alamain. Pretty sure he is since Viv is back. Happy that Rope breaks up, hoping Safe is just a step on the way back to LUMI!!!!
I am sure Kristin is pretending to be Susan. I knew “Susan” had convinced Will that he was EJ when I saw the letters over the bed. I believe Kristin is behind the DiMera sabotage. I hope they toss Kate out of DiMera. I wouldn’t be surprised if Billie showed up soon and expect to see Jack, ghost or for real, for JJ and Jennifer soon. Been watching Days since Day 1 and love having my favorite soap back where it belongs!

OMG so good !! I keep watching it, Days is on FIRE !!!

We call this RE-BIRTH. DAYS you were in a massive accident and you have finally recovered. Ron Carlivati = genius, savior, writer beyond measure. So jazzed. Eileen Davidson…..FIYAH!! Allison Sweeney – just what we all need. Tyler Christopher just ahhhhhh (heaven help me), Louise Sorel welcome home girl…….Chandler Massey can’t wait till you “remember” because what a mess you left death’s door for…..Robert Scott Wilson, sweet christ on a croissant, how does someone so perfectly beautiful play someone so evil to such perfection, the Theo story taking a leap from the headlines but I am glad they gave it to an actor who can handle it, Casey Moss just smolders, thank you Ron……I am least excited for the Hope Rafe drama….i love me Hope but she has floundered for so long I don’t care if she is happy or not. And Rafe…geez make up your mind..you just Gabi for her choice in men but you can never make up your mind about who you want. So I will let that be my one “whine”…but otherwise…….DAYS is SMOKING….burn baby burn!!!!!

Joel

Amen!

Yes, Kristen!!!!!!!!! OMG, Sister Mary Moira!! Thomas Banks can’t be far behind. lmao. This is soooooo good. Eileen Davidson is amazing!!!!

Satan

Kristen in that red dress, with the evil laugh… looking just like the Succubus she really wants to be. Don’t worry Kristen, your future employment is secured here in Hell!

Mo

Is that Kristen or Susan’s sister? I forget her name. I know she was thought to have drowned way back when, but in Salem, who knows?

Jovin
Jovin

Penelope drowned. She was one of the quadruplets of Susan, Thomas, and the nun. One thing I never understood…Kristen is not Stefano’s biological daughter. So…why isn’t she one of them? Make them quintuplets and family. I guess that’s what we call Buy Illogical!

Alan
Alan

I think it’s Kristen.

Penelope Kent was the fourth Banks sibling who was given up for adoption by Susan’s mother and was adopted by a British orthodontist. Penelope was drowned by Edmund who thought she was Kristen; Susan later told him that Penelope was dying of an incurable disease.

Andrew Hass
Andrew Hass

Susan has a brother named Thomas and 2 sisters named Mary Moira who is a nun and Penelope.Penelope was the one who was killed when Edmund drowned her but he thought she was Kristen since they looked alike.Susan, Mary Moira, Thomas and Penelope are quadruplets.So the only character who can’t come back is Penelope since she is dead.

Patrick
Patrick

I’ve already posted – couldn’t Tamara Clatterbuck, be Penelope

the resemblance to Eileen Davidson.. is uncanny

these are two highly touted women of means

sensual – presence – and oh so commanding

just to keep the zany comedic and dramatic effect onward

heck.. why wouldn’t this not reach ?

Tamara Clatterbuck for the WIN… make her a younger sister of the quadruplets

It looks so amazing!!!!!! I look forward to watching Days every day and that was not how I was feeling just a few months ago.

Why doesn’t Sami just do a DNA test on Will? That will prove to him he’s her son.

I look forward to Vivian returning. So much good going on here!!!!

Mo

Have to add, I’m glad Rob/Ben is back. I miss him.

And Abe, your son was committing a crime. So yes, it’s horrible he was shot, but JJ thought Theo was pointing a gun at him.

OMGEE I am BEYOND EXCITED to see Sami & Rafe going at it again. these 2 have always been so hott together. it will be interesting to see how all the drama with Rafe & Hope plays out. i do like these 2 together but they definitely have some issues to work through. i’m glad that they are finally getting the writing to face their problems head on so they can move forward.

Mo
Mo

Yes, when someone is hesitant to pick a wedding date, there may be problems!

Andrew Hass

I’m also excited to see Sami and Rafe have sex because they have history together and it makes sense that they might turn to each other for comfort.However i don’t Rafe to have sex with Sami while he’s still with Hope because i don’t want him to cheat.Now maybe he and Hope get into a big fight and Rafe thinks they have broken up and so he turns to Sami.

Mike

Tyler Christopher as Nicholas Alamain?

Or as a reborn Stefano? Brain swapping, clone, something weird and fun like Days of old.

Satan

Days has already claimed that TC will be playing an entirely new character. Probably Vivian’s latest sidekick, since Ivan is long gone, and Gus (the guy who was with her the last time she was in town) turned out to be working against her… or whatever it was. (senior Devil moment here… the memory starts to go after a few thousand years, so the details are kind of foggy.)

I doubt they will bring Nikolas Alamain back, because they can’t figure out what age he’s supposed to be. He was a kid back when the Alamain family first appeared. Then just a few years later he was in his late 20s and banging Kate on her desk in the Titan office. And then mysteriously de-SORASed in his last brief appearance to get his mother Carly and sister MelEggNie out of town.

Since TC has been playing a Greek character for years, they really should make him Alexander Kiriakis, Sonny’s oldest brother and the result of Justin’s hookup with Angelica Deveraux. (the gross part there… for the GH fans at least… is that they would appear in Port Charles as mother & son Tracy & Ned.) Alexander would technically be a new character, since he hasn’t been seen since he was a baby, and that wasn’t much of an acting role.

Of course why he would be working with Vivian Alamain would be a whole other story. Maybe he’s not…. but it’s assumed they are, just because they show up around the same time.

Man that is a helluva promo! I definitely got hyped and goosebumps watching this! Thank God for Ron C. coming to Days.

If you aren’t watching Days now, you should be!!!

I love it all EXCEPT why can’t JJ catch a break?

He has grown up and gotten a respectable job yet I fear he will never amount to anything than a Kevin Fisher clone on Y&R. It just isn’t fair to character development.

Patrick
Patrick

OMG – just finished the 11/14 – Tuesday epi

as Hope and JJ are going over the case .

it dawns on both of them… that with Theo “autism” .. HAD JJ known it was him.. that had he said.. “drop” what you have in your hand. AND with Theo “honest to goodness nature. turned around.. with decoder in hand… his mindset ? he knew it was JJ and/or was ready to tell him it wasn’t a gun.

the horror in JJ… after the fact.. was not any less in high yield drama.

Gawd I loved Lani words… ” you are the most important thing in my life ”

and naturally , Abe… as he’s sobbing… telling Theo.. he has to pull through.. that it was father and son.. who were able to move on without Lexie.. because they had each other

if you wanted pull out ALL the stops. here you go.

this does not even count –

ALL the drama with just Eve

All the drama with Will and Sami and all the rest of Salem

boffo show

I posted on another thread.. that JJ has shown tremendous growth.. and it has to do with his pairing with Lani. I believe that.

this is Casey Moss as JJ – his best acting.. to date.. sans Eve. and that’s a long time ago.. and now she’s back.

ALL this drama.. is triggering every sensory perception ???? and Casey Moss talent and skill set is thriving

@ Days of OUR Lives

this is treat plus treat galore = FEAST

Patrick
Patrick

forgot to add –

this is going to have some serious repercussions… on Kate

because as JJ told Hope.. that all the things that did occur… were and are NOT in Theo person

he would never have acted this way –

as he’s secretly cavorting with Kate for DiMera Enterprises

I’m so in love with Lauren Koslow… so get ready for Koslow and Penghlis

DAYS Susan Seaforth Hayes Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination For Julie and Doug’s Emotional Storyline

When you think Days of our Lives, what would it be without the legendary Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and her real-life and on-screen husband, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams)?

This past Emmy season, the beloved duo got a chance to shine, when they were put through a ‘heartbreaking’ predicament – Julie’s heart gives out, she is in need of a transplant, and things take a turn for the worse.

What would life be like for Doug without his Julie? How would she say goodbye to him? Fans clearly felt the sentiments overflowing from this real-life duo capturing the essence of their characters in such a raw and realistic way. So much so, that Susan landed a Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for her work.

Already a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient along with her husband, Bill back in 2018, will Susan finally get an award for her acting for her decades of beautiful work on the long-running NBC soap opera? Fans will need to tune-in to CBS on Friday, June 26th to find out with the virtual presentation of the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards.  But for now, here is our conversation with Susan.

Photo: NATAS

Congratulations on your Supporting Actress nomination.  You have been racking up a lot of these recently, having been nominated in the same category two years ago, and also receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award along with your husband, Bill Hayes at the 45th annual Daytime Emmys in 2018.

SUSAN:  It’s really nice to be nominated, because I’ve had a few gap years.  I’ve had, what? 25 gap years between the recent nominations.

What scenes did you ultimately chose that landed you the nomination?

SUSAN:  I submitted when Julie dies.  I submitted the farewell montage scenes with Bill Hayes, and they were very moving to us… and we’ll see.  I did not submit anything snappy, or bitchy, or hysterical.  I’ve lost against hysterical every time.  Comedy has never worked.  So, I am going to try the heart and soul of soup opera: not bitchiness, but loss.

Photo: JPI

Can I ask how you got through those scenes with Bill, because it was so touching?  I don’t know how you did it.

SUSAN:  It was very difficult.  I mean, these are the things that make us so connected to the characters and the show.  This is a place where we can show the public what love means to us, which is everything.

They were beautiful scenes.  Do you remember when you did them, if you felt good about them at the time?

SUSAN:  No… no.  I didn’t know.  Everyone on the set seemed happy.  We are blessed to have feedback from out producers now, and they didn’t say, “I think you can do it better,” and, “Another take,” not that we would have anyway, because there is never time to do another take.

Photo: JPI

How did you find out that you were nominated? 

SUSAN:  One of the producers, Randy Dugan called me, or I wouldn’t have found out for a couple of days,

What are your thoughts on this being a virtual Daytime Emmys ceremony because of COVID-19?  We don’t know anything about will play out yet or what that will look like, but it is back on network TV.

SUSAN:  It’s going to be a wonderful surprise.

So, if they have the shot of the nominees, do you think you’d be dressed in comfortable clothes or more formal?

SUSAN:  Well, I’d certainly wear my best earrings if I were at home, yeah.  If my grandson can arrange us to get on the internet (we have a grandson living on our property, and he’s our live-in techy), we will get dressed up, and sit there, if that’s the way to do it.

47th Annual Daytime Emmy Nominations Announced: GH Scores Most Nods, DAYS Follows

DAYS did very well receiving 22 overall nominations and a lot of your co-stars got nomination as well.

SUSAN:  Yes, an excellent year for nominations for our show.

How many times have you been nominated now? 

SUSAN:  This makes six.

Photo: IMDB

Would it mean a lot to you to get the award?

SUSAN:  The Lifetime Achievement meant a lot.  It wouldn’t be bad to win this year.  I’ll say that.  It would be sweet for the show, since I am now the oldest living cast member of the original family – the original, original.  I’m not the original Julie, but close enough.  So, I think that would be some validation for the longevity of this original storytelling.  People look at the show and say, “Are you part of the DiMera family or the Brady family?”  I say, “I’m part of the Horton family!”

What did your husband Bill say when he found out you were nominated?

SUSAN:  (Yells) Billy, what did you say when you found out I was nominated?

BILL:  Yay!!!

SUSAN:  That’s about right. (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

What a guy!

SUSAN:  I know!  What a guy, what a guy, what a guy!

I was really happy to see your name among the other well-deserving nominees.

SUSAN:  I know you are because I know you care.  Who knows what will happen? It isn’t going to ruin our lives you know, one way or another.  But it was very nice to receive this acknowledgment from my peers.

So, are you glad Susan received a nomination for her work in her emotional storyline? Do you think she should finally receive the Emmy for her performances? Comment below.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

READ MORE
WATCH: Days of our Lives Alum Peter Reckell in COVID-19 Short Film, 'Permanent Resident'

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

DAYS Stacy Haiduk and Linsey Godfrey Deliver 'The Power Performance of the Week'

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
