Days of our Lives fans have been watching the Nick/Will feud heating up and this week in the latest promo from NBC, Will is pressured and forced to sign his parental rights away to his baby that Gabi is carrying, thanks to Nick’s machinations!

So why is Nick carrying this to the enth degree?  Well according to the preview and what has been airing, Nick reveals that he does indeed hate Will (so much) because Will is gay! So just how will this all play out?  What do you think of the storyline?  So many questions, and we want to know what you think of it all and the performances of Blake Berris (Nick Fallon) and Daytime Emmy winner, Chandler Massey (Will).   Also make sure to read our most recent interview with Berris which may shed some light on to what is going down in Salem!

YES! And as I said elsewhere, i do not want the storyline to be that Nick was raped in prison and therefor hates all gay people. Things we hear happening in prison between fellow inmates is not (always) about homosexuality. It would be very cliché of DAYS, to go that route, but I have a feeling we’ll get exactly that! If the writers are clever, we’ll get a(nother) twist. I’m thinking yes, Nick hates Will (and Sonny and others) for being gay, but not because something happened to him in prison. Maybe it’s his religious views or other. But the… Read more »

I love this storyline and hate it at the same time. Everyone involved in this storyline is wonderful though, especially Chandler, Freddie, and Alison. I hate the character of Nick right now, but Blake is so good at making you hate him; but yet there’s still a vulnerability there where you actually feel sorry for him too. Bring on the custody battle!!

I love this storyline to, But I don’t like Nick at all, what he is doing to Will and his family, he has no rights to that baby, and I hope before the baby is born someone finds out what a rat he really is.

I kinda agree with you but the actor is doing a fine job making us dislike him, and the show is finally getting better except for a few disapointing spots like not doing something about Bo and leaving us hanging with that. But getting back to Nick he wants that baby so much im beginning to feel there is more to it than just Will being gay. The other thing that makes me feel that way is that i dont know any man Nicks age thats willingly ready to raise another mans baby. There could be in real life but… Read more »

I’m with you, love the storyline, HATE Nick! Love Blake Berris though which means he’s doing his job 😉 I feel so bad for Will. Ali Sweeney was fantastic yesterday and I love the dynamic with EJ too. I wish somehow Kristian Alfonso could get involved with this and see her lovely cousin for what he really is. Also, would be good for Gabi to see his nasty side.

OOps i was wrong about the reply i made to you. I do know someone Nicks age willing to raise another mans child. He’s been raising by nephews son since my nephews son was a toddler. I dont know how i forgot.

I couldn’t agree more about Nick, and that he has no rights to this baby. I’m just saying that Blake Berris is doing a terrific job as an actor. He is making me hate Nick, but he also plays him with such a vulnerability that you’re left wondering why Nick is the way he is; and if he can possibly be redeemed at some point in the future.

Jim – the most disappointing storylines have to be Bo missing and STILL not discussing it. Where in the world is K.Alfonso?
Also, how I sooooo wish that they keep Daniel & Jen apart and bring back Matt Ashford from under the elevator. I wish Chloe, Daniel and Parker go off into the sunset far, far away from Salem 😉

Okay and I really want Fr. Eric and Nicole to get it on. LOL!

I agree with ces about Mathew Ahford. I was hoping Jack and Jen would be the new Tom and Alice of Salem but those really would be hard to duplicate.

Blake Berris is playing the part of a Creepy Psycho so well….I loved The character of Nick before and noe I just want him to leave Salem. Chandler Massey is doing a great job too…very gifted in the acting department. I can’t wait to see how this all turns out.

I think Vargas raped Nick in prison and this is why he is acting out towards Will and Sonny… However , Nick is acting possessive just like he did when he had Melanie and addicted to the pain killers……

I can tell ya now….. Something “happened” to Nick in jail. Cue- anti gay storyline. I hope Days plays this out for all the dramatic potential inherent in this scenario. Soaps have to be compelling and full of drama. If Days plays this out, they could have some strong story moments coming up.

This is an issue that needs to be addressed and I am glad Days is taking it on, but I hope they come up with something a bit more imaginative than Nick was raped in prison and that is why he hates gay people. Homophobia in its various forms has some complex reasoning behind it and to reduce it to a single incident is to downplay how deep prejudice against gay people runs in society despite the gains that have been made. It is also sends the wrong message that the sexual violence so common in prison is about homosexuality,… Read more »

I totally agree too! Mary you said it perfectly! I really hope they are not going that route of Nick having been raped in prison and this being the reason for hating Will (and Sonny) so much. I think it’s what we gonna get though…. )o:

Keep in mind, also, that there is a way to combine both elements and walk away with an even *more* complex story. They’ve already established Nick using religion as a basis for his homophobia, and there’s really no reason to assume that isn’t the core of the matter, from which the rest of his bitterness grows. That said, if he *was* raped in prison – which, to your point, is about power and control, not sexual desire – then he would logically filter that horrible experience through his existing bias, thus wrongly associating “gayness” with “rapist.” That would actually be… Read more »

I say this… because… he’s planting seeds… and not being loud and wanting his way…. acting off of and getting in to the other actors minds… and playing off of their persona….

which is what i meant by… everyone else in salem seemingly unaware…. it’s the other salem’ites who’re 2nd guessing his motives and not even coming up with Nicks behaviours….

as of yet…. till the Prison angle plays out….

I don’t like the characater, Nick, but Blake’s performance is outstanding. Hope he wins some award for his brilliant performance. And, I like that DOOL is trying to tell a story involving homophobia. Homphobia is very much prevalent in the current world; it’s not a thing of the past. This world has a large population of bigots and haters. What is incomprehensible is that how someone having a kind of lifestyle affects the so called haters. No one is stopping straight people from the way they love; so why would straight people like to dictate how someone should or shouldn’t… Read more »

I love Will storylines and how they bring so many DAYS characters together. But a part of me really wishes he was not the father of a child. I would have preferred to see Will establish himself, his first love relationship with Sonny, and more community building rather than be sucked into a baby plot. Sure, it is more conflict but I am not liking it so much.

icla

I hate the baby storyline with a passion! I know why they did it now (later would be kind of absurd) but I hate it! The only thing good about it is how much drama it triggers and the beautifully agonizing and amazing scenes we got with Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey. My fear is thought that when the baby is born, that this is ALL we are going to see – Sonny and Will with the baby. It may be cute as hell for an episode or 3, but I do NOT want them to be only the baby… Read more »

A blind person would know Nick was up to no good but not clueless Will. Gabi and Will are both immature and not that bright so I feel sorry for baby Arianna with those two as her parents. And let’s not even mention her other relatives.

Bells
Guest

Will and Gabi are also both extremely young. Gullibility isn’t particularly uncommon in full-grown adults, to say nothing of the young and naive. It is actually something of a relief to see young characters acting, well, YOUNG. They *are* immature characters, and that’s kind of the point. They’re both, what? 20? How many twenty-year-olds are genuinely ready for the responsibilities of parenting? Or for mature relationships? If Days is worth its story salt, they’ll continue to explore how difficult the situation would be for Will and Gabi, long after the pregnancy drama is concluded, and not turn them into magically… Read more »

I’m loving this story, and the performances we’re being blessed with are top notch. Ali Sweeney, Blake Berris, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith have each given us multi-layered performances. I can understand each character’s motivations well. That doesn’t mean I like all of them at the moment. Nick fills me with fear and revulsion, all because of Blake’s skillful balancing of a greatly disturbed mind. Ali makes me cheer mothers everywhere with their fierce commitment to their children, and I love that she’s been returned to the fine Samantha Gene Brady that I’ve loved for years. The pale imitation of… Read more »

I’ll be so glad when they get done with this story line. I don’t like the fact that they are making Nick the bad guy because of his views on homosexuality. Not everyone believes that being gay is okay. From the very beginning with this storyline, they have made everyone look stupid if they didn’t agree with it. I have several friends who are gay, but that doesn’t mean that I agree with their lifestyle. Why can’t they go with this in a different angle and make Nick a likable guy. I have watched Days for years and years and… Read more »

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

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.

Photo: JPI

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?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
