Too many favorite moments to choose from, but one I just re-watched recently that stuck with me is her therapy session with “Dr. Tony Stone” (circa early ’80’s) when she role-played and talked to her mom and Samantha. Love everything she does, though. Great lady, and very deserving of the recognition!

Yes Marlena returning on the pier and the whole possession story!

Too many to list, an early scene that stands out is when Marlena found out that Samantha was dead. Another is when John told her all of the horrible things that she had done during the Possession story. Very classy lady, very deserving of this honor..Love her!

There are too many favorite moments to pick from. I think the ones that stand out most to me are: the one where Marlena lost her son, DJ to SIDS (early 80’s) and the storyline where Marlena was possessed by the devil.

Too many for me to choose just one. Marlena realizing that ‘John’ was really ‘Roman’ at the top of the hill and their hug. DJ crib scene is heartbreaking. ‘The Plane’…especially the moment she realizes she can’t leave. Belle’s birth ‘he’s a girl?’ loved those moments between Marlena and John. Their first wedding in 1986 (well basically all of 1986) and also their wedding in 1999. When John tells Marlena what she has done, during possession while she is in the hospital. The scenes in ‘The Pit’ with John and their scenes on Jennifer’s show afterwards. Some of the scenes last year with John at the jail, made me cry. And when John ‘died’ very powerful. Her scenes with her children, and all the younger actors..she brings out the best in them. She is the best. Love her!

There are so many but I would have to say the 1991 Pier Scene or when she woke up to John in Aremid.

Marlena’s return scene on the pier with John, and the possession storyline. Also the affair on the plane.

Too hard to choose just one, which speaks to what an incredible actress Deidre is. The scenes that stand out for me are when John tells Marlena that she was The Desecrator during The Possession storyline and when Marlena returns home alone after John’s funeral.

It is so difficult to choose a favorite because Marlena has had such great moments through the years. She has always been my favorite since the day Deidre brought the character to Salem all those years ago. She has never disappointed in any of her storylines. But I think I will select the 1991 pier reunion with John as my favorite. The emotions were so real and what made it extra special was knowing Deidre was back on the show once again. And seeing her in Drake’s arms once again was icing on the cake. What a great couple. I ever tire of watching them together.

So hard to choose since I’ve watched them all, but I guess I’ll say Da Plane. (real fans will know)

The Salem Strangler storyline, the pier with John and all of her scenes with Wayne Northrup.

My favorite Marlena episode was in September 2011 when Marlena and John returned to Salem during the dedication of Horton Square. Deidre, as Marlena, did not have to say one word. Her graceful entrance with Drake (as John Black) and the smile on her face said it all!

Marlena -Act 1—–1976-1982 Any scene.

LOVED Deidre’s early years.. The chemistry she had with Jed Allan was never to be duplicated. IMO- not even with “Roman or John”

So many wonderful “Marlena” moments & scenes over the decades. Can’t believe I’ve been watching Ms Hall as Marlena since the late 1970s. Wow. So happy that she returned to DOOL last year which prompted me to tune back in to the show. Hope she is around for another 4000 episodes.

Loved the early days when she was first introduced to Salem as Mickey Horton’s therapist when he was institutionalized. Then when her sister Samantha came on the scene, jealous of “Doc” and switched identities with her, leaving Marlena in the same institution as Mickey. Samantha became a poor imitation of Dr. Evans, while Marlena spent months in the looney bin as Samantha. As I recall, Don Craig finally figured it out.

Another was when patient Stella lured Doc to a warehouse where she had prepared a pit. Unsuspecting Marlena tip-toed into the darkened warehouse looking for Stella, and then fell into the deep pit. Whack-o Stella kept her there for weeks, even tossing down a roasted turkey for Doc to celebrate Thanksgiving in captivity.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
