DAYSaster Stunners! A Sneak Peek At What Will Happen When DAYS returns!

Courtesy/NBC

There are going to be some very significant changes to the canvas when Days of our Lives returns next Monday, August 13th following the conclusion of the Summer Olympics on NBC with the aftermath of their DAYSaster!

EW.com got their hands on an exclusive video promo that gives DAYS viewers some SPOILERS or perhaps, its just some well edited teasers,  but what ever the case this looks juicy! And this  should continue the upward ratings Days of our Lives had shortly before it went on hiatus for the games in London.

Here is what we know!

Jack looks to be the person stuck in the elevator when it collapses!  Since Matt Ashford is exiting the show, could they finally kill Jack Deveraux? Or will he go MIA?  Brady looks a mess and is distraught for not being there for someone, a female.  (Could it be Sarah Brown as Madison, who is also exiting the series?)

In the romance department; EJ and Sami share a kiss, but then it appears Rafe arrests Sami!  Sonny makes a pass at Will and the duo almost kiss!  However, the thing that has got us all intrigued is what appears to be a kidnapped EJ tied up by an angry and vengeful Ian who reveals something behind a curtain!  Could it be Stefano? What or who is there?

Elsewhere, Daniel seems to rescue Nicole and her baby, and Melanie and Chad seem to reunite, but make sure to watch the preview at EW.com and then let us know what you are looking forward to most, but most of all, what do you think is happening in the main plot points here!

I hope Cameron gets killed. I hope Jack isn’t killed. Wish he weren’t leaving. The Melanie story went on for too long. I look forward to Stefano and Maxine’s return!

Matthew’s return was hyped into nothing. I was nothing but annoyed with Jack from the moment he returned.

The problem was taking the direction of that story wrong from the start with the Jennifer dating game. I’m angry that I didn’t get the story for Jack that I should have. He’s just about the only character left on the show with a personality. Sorry you had to be annoyed for 5 minutes/month, but I’m constantly annoyed with all the generic characters with insta love right and left and nothing of substance. I was so excited for Matt Ashford’s return, and Days just disappointed.

Pretty predictable outcomes. I know DAYS put in their best effort for this DAYSASTER, and I love this show so much, but they don’t do these sort of things well. GH, for all its faults and as much as I rag on it, THAT’S a show that knows how to put on a showstopping episode. The Fridays episode didn’t get me too excited, and this preview didn’t help either. Hoping that end of August/September gets better, as some of the actors have attested to. So sad to see Matt Ashford go, and even Sarah Brown who could have given a… Read more »

Saw Ian Buchanan @ WB Studios last week sporting a full beard. Doesn’t look like he’s heading back to General Hospital to me.

Glad that Days will be back. I watch it at the gym, it helps the workout lol.

And great that the new team of writers (Lorraine Broderick!) and exec producer is behind the show when it returns Monday!

Very interesting can’t wait to see what develops.If it does turn out that Stephano is alive BIg Surprise as if we wouldn’t have already known that.This however makes no sense to me how could Jack be in the elevator when it clearly showed Abby in there?Unless she changes into a man which i hardly doubt that will happen.When was Nicole suppose to have had her baby anyway.I hope that Sarah stays but it doesn’t look that way .I knew that SOnny had the hots for Will nothing wrong with that.I cannot wait until MOnday.6 more days that is just to… Read more »

The upcoming return is totally amazing. I know someone who watched DAYS the Friday prior to its break, and they cannot wait. It’s creating amazing momentum. It’s going to be amazing!!!! Best soap opera on air currently, and best summer storyline to date for any soap this year!!!

DAYS’aster Stunner! The Towering Inferno! Must See… Maggie – Abe – Jack – EJ. Maggie and Victor. This Supercouple… is IMO… The Couple that Binds Salem. The couple that, replace, if you will…. carrying the torch for Salem… ala, complimenting Alice and Tom Horton. Maggie tears up… “I think I’m Happy.” she’s telling Nicole… who was summoned by Victor. Suzanne Rogers, has gained my respect… she carried the show… before DOOL 2.0 started… and the advent of return STARS.. who’re now all but gone. save for John and Marlena… Thank God! Maggie retained the Horton Legacy and Star Turned in… Read more »

If Safe get together again and all this Ejami build up is for nothing I AM CERTAINLY GONNA BE DONE WITH DAYS! Six years of Ejami fans being pushed from pillar to pillar is enough. The previous writers took the time to clear so much history which was standing in their way for what? For the new writers to dismiss it all and go back to what we had before? Safe and Ejole…. what a big let down. How Sami could even think about going back to a man who was in love with her sister, initmate with her and… Read more »

Surely there will not be a SAFE reunion! Let’s pair Rafe with Hope after Bo’s departure or with anybody for that matter, except Sami. EJAMI rock!

ITA!!!! If all this build up since the “grief sex” last year was all for nothing I will be greatly disappointed. Ejami’s “so called chemistry” is off the charts!!! Safe and Lumi are boring. Lumi-been there, done that. I want to slap him every time he is in a scene. Safe-ugh! Sorry, but Galen Gering is a sucky actor, especially in comparison to James “you’re sooo hot!!” Scott.

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.

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.
