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……

Nick was DEFINITELY raped in prison! Nice GH rip off.

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.

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 don’t know what he’s going to do next… i’m so intrigued with his performance.

Ali is at her best when she’s protecting her little cubs! I especially loved her telling EJ in bed she wants to get Nick. Love that EJ & Sami will be a team to protect Will!! Great story all around but I wish the Hortons would get wind of what Nick is up too!!

Love the storyline but hate the Chloe/Daniel/Jenn one. Why are men on this show always so stupd to the woman’s manipulations. The writers need to make these guys smarter then the dumbies they portray.

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 Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
