In an in-depth and re-introductory interview to the fans and the canvas of Days of our Lives, Eileen Davidson chatted with TV Line in a new video feature released today.

During the conversation, several past and present clips are shown featuring Eileen’s original story of nearly fourteen years ago, where Kristen tried to destroy John and Marlena’s happiness, while Susan Banks and a host of other characters Davidson so magnificently played, comprised one of the wackiest and most sensational stories under former DAYS head writer, the late James Reilly.

Eileen reveals to TV Line if Kristen, the former Salem troublemaker has changed her spots or not, and if Susan Banks might be on her way back to the Salem scene.  Davidson confirms she has already taped scenes with Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John), and James Scott (EJ).  In regards to Kristen’s time away from the canvas, Davidson admits that the present-day Kristen has undergone “years of intensive therapy”.

Now after the jump watch the video! Then let us know your thoughts about what you think will happen upon Kristen’s return to Salem come this October!

14 years… of “no” Eileen Davidson…. for DAYS! OMG! What a BLAST to the PAST…. and can’t wait FUTURE! Cat on a HOT tin Roof! it’s a treat, just hearing… she’s already done scenes, with John, Marlena, and EJ. Can’t wait. Eileen STARRED DAYS…. it seems like yesturday. I have to state one more time….. DAYS! please, don’t, “XYZ Expletive” this up for Kristen. and us FANS. We remember Kristen and Susan… etc….. so well. The only thing, I don’t like about the above article….. is: In regards to Kristen’s time away from the canvas, Davidson admits that the present-day… Read more »

I can’t believe it was 14 years ago. Her storyline is one that has stayed forefront in my mind along with Vivian burying Carly alive.

I think Kristen would need therapy after being stuck in that harem and then trying to get over losing John and their baby and having Stefano as a father. That’s why that whole EJ isn’t my son business didn’t ring true. Kristen and Peter weren’t Stefano’s bio children, yet he treated them the same, if not better than his bio children.

@mo.

yeh, those are reason enuf… for therapy. it just spooked my some… cause, i thought, “oh, no”. an excuse… or let down… on how they write the new Kristen.

even, she said…. “the late great James Reily” wrote his vision, over the top, good old days.

i, hold my breathe….

alas, thru thick and thin…. days for life!

Great interview! The interviewer asked great questions. I loved hearing she’s already worked with James Scott and you can see her working with Casey D. I’m so excited for her return!

This is potentially good news! Love Eileen- she was AMAZING back in the Day. Let’s just hope the writers/Corday don’t screw up another opportunity with a returning actor/character that fans have loved over the years (examples: Lisa Rinna- twice!, Melissa Reeves, Matthew Ashford, Christie Clarke- also twice!, Patrick Muldoon, Austin Peck, Stephen Nichols, etc.)

Eileen will be missed on Y&R. She is the original Ashley Abbott Newman McCall and will always be. I don’t care how many Ashley replacements….there is only one Ashley and that will always be Eileen Davidson. 🙂

Stories by the late James Reilly was the reason many Days fans quit watching the show in favor of The Young and the Restless. Many of those fans have never returned to Days.

I’m inclined to agree with you. it’s the darndest thing to remain true to your soap and ever vigilant. The late great James E. Reilly… creator of:

1. Carly – being buried alive, by Vivian.
2. Marlena – Possessed by Satan.
3. the Kristen/Susan mega watted drama, laugh out loud high brow… et el… my favorite.

Fabulous Woman. Top of the Line. IE: reason i remain ever faithful.

I am totally excited Eileen is coming back…i am so ready for a Marlena and Kristen Smackdown, of course with Marlena remaining the pretty heavy weight champ lol I
am so hoping with Eileen’s return to Days this means more airtime for my favorite super couple John and Marlena. Thanks Eileen for coming back you were totally the missing link of the show, missed your hell raising girl!!!! 🙂

Deidre Hall. I salute this woman…. she is BACK… with an energy… that has escalated her to new heights. I say this – perhaps… cause… it’s not just scenes with her and Sammi. She has been so riveting… in all her scenes with Carrie and Will. I still give her kudos for helping Sammi along… “show some respect” LOL.. as Sammi rears her attitude. But, it was a treat to have Carrie “home”… and was fun to watch DAYS of old. Marlena… lion’essing… her “cubs”…. Carrie, Sammi, Will… etc. and, every one… knows how DAYS has raised the bar with… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
