RIP, “Mickey”. Clarke was my grandmother’s favorite on Days—-speaking of Days—I am confounded where Gabi’s new deadly stunt is concerned. Why is Lani such a mouse? What exactly is stopping her from telling Eli, or Abe???? Actually, Rafe would be the best person to tell—run to him. If Lani told Eli, they could set a trap and haul Gabi off to jail.

You’re right. I have never heard Ave Maria sung at a wedding—and, I’m Roman Catholic—I have heard it at funerals, many times ( High Mass).

We shall all miss the iconic coupling of Mickey and Maggie.

Congratulations to DAYS for, once again, celebrating history and continuity by having the legendary singer from the Fifth Dimension, Marylin McCoo (along with her equally revered husband, Billy Davis Jr.) reprise her roll as Tamara Price, Abe’s ex and Lani’s mother. What a wonderful nod to long-time fans who remember not only her time on the show, but her incredible show business career. What a class act.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
