On Monday, after more cast members were revealed who will appear in Peacock’s upcoming streaming series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, came a photo from limited-series star, Lisa Rinna (Billie) posted to her Instagram Story of Eileen Davidson from the hair and make-up room where it looks like Days of our Lives is taped and said, , “LOOK WHO I FOUND”.

As the rumors began circulating it became true when Davidson took to her own Instagram and revealed that she too is part of the limited-series event for Peacock, and now the question is, how many roles will Davidson be playing? Will she be playing Kristen DiMera and Susan Banks, or any other of the Banks siblings?  Time will tell.

For the love of all that’s unholy, let her be Kristen and NOT Susan. Or any of the other Susan family.

It would be a great thing to see the REAL Kristen again.

The one thing I’m worried about with her & Lisa Rinna both involved is that ReRon will use this to promote their stupid “reality” show, which I have never seen, will never see, and couldn’t give a cherub’s pink ass about.

But ReRon tried to write this lowest form of “television” into General Hospital when he was there, so I wouldn’t put it past him.

I like the way you think, Satan. However, I’ll take Eileen any way I can have her—be she Kristen, Susan ( in small doses), Ashley or any other character.
But, I do object to “reality” anything. Most of all?? Lisa Rinna. Can’t stomach her in any role. I break out in hives. One of the most pretentious woman I have had the displeasure of watching in any venture/venue.
I will not mention who THE most outrageously over-the-top, plainly stupid, entitled, child-like woman in Hollywood is.

Interesting news! I know many many fans wanted Eileen back in the role(s). And, I’ve loved Eileen in all her memorable roles on DAYS, especially Kristen and Susan. However, I really miss Stacey in the role of Kristen, and the show has sabotaged the character. I really thought Kristen would change her ways when her daughter was born and the true identity of Rachel was revealed but no, the show decided to have her kidnap Sarah, then, break out of prison and cause further havoc on Chloe, kidnapping Lucas and Sami, and Kate, too, right? I think I got that… Read more »

Kristen isn’t behind bars. She escaped from the police station. Her whereabouts are unknown.

The one and only REAL Kristen, Eileen Davidson to reclaim her trademark role
No one can replace her!
Days tried it with her role and Y n r tried it with Ashley. ( although Brenda Epperson and Stacy truly were great stand ins)
Thank you soap gods!!
This Days spin off is sooooo what my soap dreams are made off, first Carrie and Austin, then the suprise recast of Sonny with Zach Tinker ( who should never have been let go from Y n r) to Eileen?!!! Toooo good!!

Zach Tinker was technically never “let go” from The Young and the Restless. He was always billed as a recurring-guest, which means he is not entitled to definitive work. Did they underuse him? Yes. But was he let go? Not technically.

Maybe
However it was very odd he was no longer on once Mal Young was replaced with Josh the snore Griffith. Fenn was situated in between Summer and Lola and even Ana( another mistake to be let go) and a thorn in kyles side. When the headwriter switch happened it was clear he was replaced with Theo. A much cheaper version, And we know how that worked out…

It will be interesting to see what role E.D. plays in the limited series. Stacy Haiduk has been phenomenal as Kristen and Susan, I hope she remains in the roles.

Sorry, not going to waste my money signing up to watch this 5 episode arc on Peacock. I’ve got my money invested in other streaming. The sad thing is that this writing team has done nothing with the M-F network show to motivate me to pay to watch something unwatchable.

I’m reasonably certain you can watch Peacock for free. It might have more ads than the “premium” version, but still less than what you would see on NBC.com (when Days used to stream on there)

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
