Eileen Davidson Back To DAYS Taping New Episodes!

She’s every-where! And that’s a good thing!  Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson who is currently being seen as Ashley Abbott on The Young and the Restless, and will debut tomorrow night as one of the newest cast members of the hit reality series franchise The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is also back taping new episodes as of  this past Friday as Kristen DiMera on Days of our Lives!

On-Air On-Soaps had to keep the news hush-hush during our most recent interview with the beautiful and talented star, but Eileen was slated back to DAYS this November for her next story stint, which will air sometime in the early Spring of 2015, since DAYS tapes so many months ahead.  As to how brief, or how long Eileen’s return actually is has yet to be divulged.

And in story, what a return it could potentially be! Seems like Kristen would come back preggars, or even with child, wouldn’t it? After all, she snatched the embryo right out of Theresa (Jen Lilley) that is supposedly Brady (Eric Martsolf) bi0-child!

After a cryptic conversation with Brady that has had everyone mystified, it left many questions that will be answered when she returns next year. A DAYS press release touts on Davidson’s return this time:  “It’s a ‘can’t miss’ story arc that is sure to take viewers by storm.”

 

Glad to hear about another Davidson “Kristen stint” in Salem? What do you think will happen when she returns this time?

Thank GOD she’s back!! Kristen livens up that place and I can’t wait to see how this baby-storyline plays out. I wish she had been able to stay longer, even one eppi/month would have been an awesome way to keep the viewers up on her pregnancy even if the rest of Salem didn’t know.

I know, right? I love Eileen.
Kristen will be back after having delivered Theresa’s and Brady’s baby. Of course, there will be a paternity test. The hurdle will be explaining how this baby was begotten without having had sex . I’m sure Kristen/TPTB will come up with something…plausible or not will make no difference…it’s a soap…LOL.
This storyline will prove to be very interesting and entertaining….what if the neonate looks just like Theresa?

Absolutely adore Eileen Davidson! I will tune back into DAYS when I hear she is back on-air in the spring of 2015. I’ve been tuning in and out since she has left. I just love Kristen Dimera! (Tired of the Salem Hero (Daniel), the rehashing of the Dannifer break-up, and Theresa)!

Always good to see Eileen Davidson on DAYS but I am not down with the stolen embryo plot line. Save that for GH as that is its bread and butter anymore. I prefer to have DAYS try to stay the course of more realistic and human stories, nothing so crazy fantastic.

Kristen did not steal an embryo. She stole a fetus from Theresa’s womb.

I actually am growing to love these “drive-bys” that she’s been doing on DAYS and it’s served to both keep the character from getting too stagnant and also shakes up the canvas in a BIG way every time she hits town.

always loved eilleen as ashley growing up she was my fave y n r heroine!!! always dissapointed that her triangle wth victor / nikki never reached the pinnacle it should have especially after the last round with adam s gaslighting! i think with all this attention she s been given y n r should finally invest in a serious adam/ ashley/ victor / nikki storyline especially since eilleen plays well with younger hearthtrobs! ashley and adam would be explosive especially if adam returns as this gabriel alias! ashley/stitch/ vikki seems beneath eilleens talent and its about time y n r… Read more »

Well this is definitely needed but even Eileen cannot save the show unless they use her correctly. Actually they have not been doing badly at all EXCEPT there is no reason for her to be interacting so much with Daniel. He’s just not my favorite character I guess, but really there are far more organic ways to weave Kristen into the canvas than to connect her with Daniel. I’m sorry but the elephant in the room is: WHY IS DANIEL AT THE CENTER OF EVERY MAJOR STORY ON DAYS?? Dear Powers that be, Why? Why always Daniel? In my experience… Read more »

Next time she comes to town, can she bring Jason Brooks aka Peter Blake DiMera with her???? He was TOO gorgeous!!!! I miss the Woman in White too!! Haha!!!

Nick D.
Guest
Nick D.

Unfortunately Jason Brooks will never be back on the show. He reportedly had issues with costar(s) who are still on the show and it’s pretty safe to say that neither he nor the character of Peter will ever return to Days at least so long as that remains the case (although “never say never”).

What a great character though – the baddest of the baddies! Those days with Peter, Laura, Mark Valley’s Jack, Daniel Scott, Jennifer (both Reeves and Cameron), etc. – those were some great storylines!

I hear he’s coming back so it’s great news all around!

@Mark, u hear Jason Brooks is coming back?? The only issues I heard he had was his real life affair with Missy Reeves, the guy who played Ryan on YR(her husband) demanded she quit, hence her quitting at the height of her popularity in the 90s. But over a decade has passed and I am sure everyone has matured, so Jason Brooks needs to comeback, especially now that EJ is dead. Chad can’t carry it, and Stefano is getting too old. Plus Eileen and Jason had excellent brother/sister chemistry. Omg think of the flashbacks!!!!

Taping in November seem right on course for May sweeps of 2015, which means she will show up and give birth in Salem in time for the leaves in the fake park to bloom. By then Brady should have his act together, maybe in a new relationship, finally happy– then boom—she’s bacccckkk…….sounds like sweeps to me.

Kristen would have be 6 months pregnant so she would have the baby prematurely.

Theresa may have been 1, 2 or even 3 months pregnant before her embryo/fetus was taken.

Lorraine Reed

Yeah but Theresa would be showing the signs of pregnancy.

How is Kristen going to explain the Brady baby without giving away that Theresa is the bio mom? That’s what I can’t wait to see.

Lorraine Reed

She won’t because Brady already put the pieces together so she can’t even lie out of this one.

Nice news about Kristen coming back. Days is NOTHING without the Dimera family! I stopped watching after EJAMI left, but I might tune in next spring to see Kristen again.

I wish EJ would come back also, but unfortunately, I doubt that will happen. EJ, Sami, Kristen and Stefano add much needed excitement to Days. I wish they would all return as permanent residents of Salem. Otherwise, this show is beyond boring and rather pathetic in my opinion.

Michael, thank you for the information.

Peggy Thornsbury

I think the same. The ones that makes the show has left the show. I wish Sami and EJ would come back to days. Also I am so glad that Kristen is coming back to days. I love her on that show. And Stefano.

There will be several developments involving the DiMera family in the months to come that would blow your mind! It’s a shame you threw in the towel.

I think she will come back with Brandy’s child

Lorraine Reed
Guest
Lorraine Reed

I don’t think so because she stole Theresa’a fetus so possibly Kristen pratically aborted Theresa baby and pratically the baby is dead so she must be carrying a already dead fetus and practically she will miscarry or the baby will be still born or kidnapped someone else’s baby and pass it off as Brady. Really I don’t want Theresa back with Brady and to have Brady’s baby.

As a new Days viewer, I have to say that Kristen DeMera is something!!!!!! Wow!!!!!! She’s a real nut job. I love her. So glad she will be coming back. I certainly hope Eileen Davidson doesn’t burn herself out with all this work. I know when you’re hot, you’re hot and you have to take it. But, she’s everywhere. Just keep showing up on Days and I’ll be happy.

Depends on how far along Theresa was. Up to 10 weeks medically it’s called an embryo. At 10 weeks they start calling it a fetus. Either way the idea of removing it from one woman and putting it into another is absurdly unscientific and would be a medical first as far as I know.

Storyline is absurd ~ I know it’s a soap, but good grief, they transplanted an embryo – When Kristen comes back to town I guess she will be carrying Brady’s child, even though she is a tad on the mature side to be “with child”. How old is the character supposed to be? I know thanks to cosmetic surgery everyone looks eternally 35 or so but some of these actors have been on the show for quite some time. Won’t Theresa be wondering and thinking that it’s odd that Kristen is having a baby around the same time that she… Read more »

Glad Eileen is back on Days. Expected her to come back, but not quite this soon. Nevertheless, very happy about this news. Looking forward to seeing how the baby story will play out. Hope the writers don’t mess up this story. They need to follow through with what has been started relative to the story and not skip over any details. Case in point, during the Kristen rapes Eric story, the video of Kristen and Eric that was shown at the Bristen wedding had been altered to incriminate Eric. That truth was never revealed to Salemites. It should have been… Read more »

I hope Kristen loose Brady and Theresa baby because to have a baby at 6 months wouldn’t she go into premature labor. My fact is that Kristen stole a fetus from Theresa uterus and I believe it didn’t took it latch on to Kristen old uterus. Besides she can’t pulled the wool over Brady’s eyes because on dayscafe.com. ..Brady already putting the pieces together about what happened to Theresa. My guess hopefully once Brady confront her Stephano it Kristen will tell him that the fetus didn’t took so she practically aborted Theresa baby and with Brady doing the check up… Read more »

I love Eileen for God sake come back and never leave lol, the only issue I have with Days is the they make Kristen too crazy I mean yeah leave some crazy but always redeem her like Dorian Lord in OLTL you wanted to kill her but then she would turn around and help someone and this thing with the fetus come on give me a break it’s so stupid I mean who writes this stuff my thing is make it more realistic she should of had a baby with Brady so there would always be a connection even when… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

Photo: JPI

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
