DAYS Thaao Penghlis Previews: "You Won't Believe What Happens In Jan-Feb. Great Scenes, But Tragedy Is Part Of The DiMera Life."

Courtesy/NBC

Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) has been stepping up to the plate lately and running the DiMera empire clearly with his own agenda, which has not completely been revealed.  He certainly has it out for Sami (Alison Sweeney), who is MIA and her quest to bring the DiMera family to its knees, and he may also have it out for Belle (Martha Madison), as well.  We shall soon see.

Whatever the case, the very talented Thaao Penghlis posted on his facebook page a little teaser to whet the appetite of his fans and followers with the latest NBC photo of the actor as Andre DiMera.  And speaking of appetite, make sure to pick up your copy of  Thaao’s latest book, Seducing Celebrities One Meal at a Time out in bookstores now!

Thaao related this message with his photo: “Andre 2015. You won’t believe what happens in Jan-Feb. Great scenes but tragedy is part of the DiMera life.”

DAYS fans must put on your thinking caps!  What tragedy is going to happen in Salem?  How will it impact the DiMera clan?  What do you hope happens to Andre?  Share your thoughts below!

Have a bad feeling this will be the end of Stefano 🙁 For good this time

You are probably right, Marc. Joseph does not seem well. I have not seen him on his feet for quite a while; always sitting, he is. He is probably on his way to permanent retirement. I know Stefano is a bad guy, but, Days won’t be the same without him. I shall miss him.

I too was thinking the end of Stefano. Even if Joseph were to leave, I don’t think they should kill Stefano. Let him be out there a la Sally Spectra on B&B.

Does Joseph use cue cards? A lot of times it seems like he’s looking at something (cards).

@Mo.
Yeah, he could be looking at cue cards. I’ve noticed that sometimes he hesitates before talking….as if he’s out of whack. Aging is a B.

Same here CeeCee. I can’t imagine Days/Salem without Stefano.That makes me sad.

“oh, god” I don’t want to know…. but this crossed my mind

Joseph Mascolo, “I have loved you from the very first time I laid eyes on your presence in Salem”

what a treat… and beyond

Stefano is forever!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

I would not surprise me; his continued absence, and off-on decision to be apart of the show, and then not be apart of it is concerning. Plua, he seems to be bound to a wheelchair in real-life, so I suspect that Joseph might be on his permanent exit from Salem, Illinois.

CeeCee

Illinois?? Wow!!!!! Where have I been these last seven years? I thought it was Salem, Massachusetts….well, you know, the (be)witching state? Lol.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Yes, CeeCee, Salem is located in Illinois, though, I think it’d be beautiful for it to be from Massachusetts; I love it in Salem, MA!

I’ll be upset when Stefano is off Days for good but I know he will have to retire. It’s just a strange world to never see Bo Brady again and that it looks like the same will happen with Stefano.

CeeCee

Oh, yeah…ridiculous storyline with this Sami business. Again!…,don’t even miss her! And yes, yes, Andre is the evil twin and all that jazz. But, how deliciously does Thaao play the dastardly Lucifer we love to hate? Except that I love, love, love Thaao!

The tragedy will sadly IMO be the demise of Stefano. But will it be at Hope’s hand if she learns he was behind Bo’s kidnapping and torture?

Amy

Was it really Stefano who was behind Bo’s kidnapping and torture? I think the real guilty party is Andre.

I am so surprised by how much Martha Madison… looks like her older sister, Sami.

as played by Alison Sweeney.

now that Belle is ensconsed with Sami… in DiMera Enterprises… to the tune of $250 million

this could be good… I am from the get go… taken with MM’ Belle…

which is a good thing…

we need more actors and characters on this show to root for… if they are being featured

hats off to Thaao Penghlis… you might not be my DiMera Lead, of choice… but your acting… take after take… lends itself enjoy

Yes, good! Even great! And I can’t wait for the build up of a GREAT romance between Abby and Chad–will further add to the “glow” that is already surrounding DAYS redux–and the actor and actress playing those roles are up to the part and then some. Great going, DAYS. And I, for one, am eager to see the cool love story lurking underneath the surface between Hope and Rafe. Galen plays the role with just enough understatement and authority–I want to see him “thaw” Hope from her frozen-in-time grief from Bo’s death–I know his “smoldering” sex appeal (love those warm,… Read more »

Nancy…I agree with you about Chad and Abby..BUT I also heard she may be leaving the show and has not opted to resign her contract….I do love them together….I would not think they would recast the role… but given the numbers of people they are getting rid of …who knows?

I also agree that Rafe and Hope may be a great romance…and yeah SHE IS a cold one!

Billy Flynn (Chad) makes me ask, “EJ who?”

It will be a sad day when bigger things call on him. He is THAT good!

CeeCee

Rafe should be with a young woman who will be able to give him children. He has always wished for a child. He lied Sami’s kids. Hope cannot give him one. I understand what you’re saying, Nancy. But I don’t think it would be fair. Poor Rafe deserves to get a love of his own…fresh and new. Enough with these older women. First Kate, now Hope? I wish Serena would return!

Amy

Ben has completely lost it. if you remember, Ben told Abby he left the baby with his mother.

CeeCee
Guest

Ben is not all there, tim. I doubt he would have left the infant alone if he were thinking with a full deck. He would not have killed all those people either. I don’t think Ben is evil….he is very, very sick!

tim S
Guest

okay.. why would you not check Ben for a hotel key to find the baby.. .. but how did he get into the hotel without any money or wallet.. .mmmm.. come on…. Days.. a little better writing on this one…

The whole thing, from the pitiful fire on the bed to the sprinkling of snow on the ground after the storm that closed the roads, seems weak to me. It’s rather disappointing after such a big build up. I am still very impressed by the performances of Robert Scott Wilson and Kate Mansi.

Mo

I too wondered how he was able to get a motel room if he didn’t have his wallet. Did he have money in his pocket which he used up? What about id? It looked like a nice place, not a dump that might skirt the id issue for enough money.

Chrystie_Delancey

I think he had Wendy’s money/wallet.

Yes, exactly, tim. As I said before, this baby is no premie. It is already a few months old. Are we stupid? Secondly, it would have not survived for so long out of an incubator ….AND FOOD…INTRAVENOUSLY. Ask any doctor, nurse, or anyone with any sense. But, regardless of that idiocy, Kate Mansi’s acting is so believable, I got goosebumps. Everything works…sans makeup, messy hair, distraught appearance and holding it together. She is just great. She deserves a nomination. To think that she was always a persona non grata for me….has been since she got down with EJ. But, I… Read more »

@Mary SF.
You are so right about the ‘baby law”. I didn’t even stop to think about that. True on all counts. Funny thing is, my mother (as an attorney) always mentions that. I had forgotten. She said that is also the reason they never use the same baby at that age. Yesterday, Abbi’s baby looked like a different baby from the day before. I am so glad you brought that up, Mary….and, PTB?, SORRY! I guess you know what you’re doing.

this is the perfect time for Jason Brooks to return… pronto no?

then recast Peter Blake…. ie: Michael Muhney ; Ted King ; Jason Brooks

any one of these three solid men… would offset and fire vs. Vincent Irizarry’ Deimos

I don’t know what will happen but I can only hope that his father Stefano gets his just due reward for all the hardship he has caused Bo and Hope over the years and that Hope takes Stefano out for good. Maybe it will even teach Andre a thing or two!

Stephano dies for good…Andre takes over the mansion and Dimera business…he kicks Chad out of both!…and because AS is not back full time, Sami is using Belle to help her bring down the Dimeras and Andre wants revenge!……just a guess!

I have only been watching for a little over two years, I started watching to observe how the Will and Sonny storyline would progress. Well, that’s over and I didn’t care for the way it ended. All this other jazz with the horrendously cornball acting of Stefano (to my eyes, it’s not convincing) is melodramatic filler. The only interesting storyline right now is Abigail and Chad with Ben fleeing with the premature baby that looks like a 1 year old kid. Aside from that, it’s meh, I don’t know, a little boring. Jennifer FINALLY said “I haven’t heard from Abigail.… Read more »

Many of us wanted a better ending for Will and Sonny…as for the baby it looks like they soras the child while still in the womb…as for Jen now concerned about Abby-time passes differently in soaps than it does in real time…what seems like weeks for us can just happen in a few days in Salem!…Days does seem to be slowing done a bit…there is no real buildup to the next storyline…hopefully things will improve soon!

Actually, Jennifer has been worried since day one. Ben has been texting her on Abbi’s phone to assuage any doubt. She’s always been somewhat concerned because it seems that when mother and daughter text each other, Abbi signs the text. My siblings and I use a certain coded word, as well, just for our parents. But, Jennifer did wonder why Abbi had not signed the texts . She just thought that Abbi and Ben needed time away, yet, she always had misgivings about how out of character it was for Abbi to just up and leave like that. It is… Read more »

Come on people everyone should know by now that there are laws in the entertainment industry about using babies on set. The younger they are the more strict the rules. Usually most soaps and series are not going to use a new born even if that were allowed because I’m sure it is. Most productions will get a baby who can be on camera the longest before the scene ends or otherwise they have to write a reason to whisk the baby out of the scene. Stop giving soaps a hard a time about the “age” of the baby– most… Read more »

Isn’t “Caroline” older than that? I don’t think it’s the age, su, as much as an actor’s health. My great-grandmother is in her 90’s and very healthy. She goes for walks, cooks etc. I don’t think Mr. Mascolo is well.

Something to do with Stefano, probably. Maybe he will be “presumed” dead?

Elite Advisors

Well the TPTB stated that from here on out, once a character is dead, they are gone for good. So so many great characters have been axed over the past few months, and more to go… the DOOL as we know it will never be the same…

Such is a fact of life, sad to see Joseph go…

Thaao Penghlis : you are an original DiMera…. had it not been for this familial Dynasty… as lead by the enigmatic superlative Joseph Mascolo. Salem and DOOL would not exist

I am glad that one of his first born is by his side

its so noticeable the respect and care that is going on between you two men.

If only they could. James Read did a stellar job with that creepy guy. But, everyone knows that Clyde was the drug lord. I can’t see how they could bring him back. Still, it would be great to see Clyde take revenge on the town for Ben’s meltdown.

Wouldn’t that be hard to do. Clyde Weston is in a Florida prison waiting to be tried for murder.

Very Easy. The charges get dropped, evidence disappears, witnesses recant. We need a more exciting bad guy in town. James Read was brilliant, and great to look at.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
