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 OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
