Michael, thank you for a wonderful interview. It is going to be such fun watching D&D work through their situation and hopefully end up in their special love story. I am excited beyond words that our efforts paid off and we have the fantastic actor Drake coming home. Just hoping the writers give D& D a great s/l

So am I excited beyond words. I don’t know what days long term plan was, but I definitely think we had a pretty big influence in this turn of events. That make me happy, now we just need a really wonderful storyline that brings them back to their roots. As characters their love is forever, as actors their friendship is the same.

I am SO excited to have Drake Hogestyn off the bench & under contract once again! Drake has been sorely missed by ALL of his fans! It seems like forever till February when we get to see Drake on our TV screens once again,back in Salem,where he belongs. Hopefully,Drake will have a fantasically LONG storyline now! YEAH! Go Drake! Can’t wait!!!!

ROTFLMAO at Drake! OMG, he is a RIOT without trying! Drake just has that natural humor that comes out in everything he does and I LOVE it how he thanked the fans for getting him off the bench and how he NEVER loses contact with the camera. He is always smiling at it and engaging the audience! My ONLY criticism is when Deidre is talking there is NO reason for the camera man to cut Drake RIGHT out of the shot. I LOVE seeing his cute facial expressions regarding the topic being discussed. Deidre isn’t cut out of shots when… Read more »

I noticed that too and thought is was odd, distracting, just for the record. Enjoy the Drake & Michael action as Dee is trying to describe the USB thing, then loved Dee’s , Boys, Boys, Boys comment! Enjoyed the Yin/Yang ~ female/male thing going on too.

Exactly Lois, it made me sad because Drake has FABULOUS facial expressions and he is so funny without even trying to be, I wanted to see his reaction to what Deidre and Michael were saying. I watched the other interviews and none of the other actors were removed from the shot but Drake was removed twice. Like I said though, that isn’t Michael’s fault but hopefully next time the camera man will keep in mind that joint interviews means all three people stay in the shot.

Can’t wait to see our favorite couple on screen again. Thank god Drake is back. Hope they don’t drag out the story line too long before they reunite.

Excellent interview, Mr. Fairman. I’m thrilled Drake is coming back & I’m truly looking forward to seeing the J&M storyline in ’14 & beyond! Still hoping that they’ll do some in-character tweets – the fans are missing those like crazy!! XOXOXO to all!

Michael I love you with them BECAUSE you always get to the heart of things like no other interviewer. I think Deidre & Drake like your approach too .They seem to save their best stuff for you. I adore both of them not just in their roles as John & Marlena, but as Deidre & Drake too. I have never had the pleasure of meeting either one of them, but for me & many others they are the heart, the soul, the everything of the show. What a great interview.

CAN ANYONE HELP THE AUSTRALIAN FANS? In 2013, after many, many decades, Australian fans have been denied free-to-air viewing of “Days of Our Lives”. Later in 2013, episodes re-commenced via the internet, on Crackle.com – this involves expensive downloading which the average person cannot afford. What’s more, why should we have to sit up at a computer to view television shows which should be on free-to-air television. The elderly in nursing homes are not in a position to view Crackle. Whether it be the fault of Sony Australia and/or Channel 9, Sydney, it is quite criminal that they have done… Read more »

The two of you are adorable together on screen and off and that is what makes you so special. The John and Marlena fans formed a unity and worked hard to get our man Drake off the bench and back on screen. Hopefully, the writers saw how important John and Marlena are to the fans and they give us the most beautiful romantic love story in 2014. We love you Drake & Dee.

Thanks for the interview with Deidre and Drake! Made me smile 🙂 Can’t wait for John Black to be back on screen and for John and Marlena to work things out. They have always been the best couple in daytime and they have so much story left to tell. Looking forward to seeing them back on screen together!!

I’ve sure enjoyed seeing Marlena shine on her own lately. Deidre is hilarious! I fell in love with Days watching my mom watch Marlena long before John came into the picture, so this has been a treat. Hopefully they let her continue to shine outside of her relationship with John. Looking forward to John/Brady scenes and happy for John/Marlena fans with Drake’s return.

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?
