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: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
