Eileen Davidson Delivers Another Knockout Performance On DAYS!

Courtesy/NBC

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) had a major showdown with Marlena (Deidre Hall)! After threatening to shoot the good doc, Kristen beginning to have one of her emotional meltdown tells Marlena to shoot her instead!  Later, after Marlena puts the gun away, that sets the stage for one of the most memorable spewing of words between enemies we have seen in soaps, and we loved every delicious minute of it!

Eileen Davidson will leave a big gaping whole on the canvas in Salem, when we see her, and Kristen, depart the series shortly on upcoming episodes!  But once again, Eileen played Kristen to the hilt!  Spewing her hatred of Marlena to her face! When Marlena comes to the realization that Kristen got Eric (Greg Vaughan) in bed as a vendetta against her, she is rocked to the core.

Kristen reveals her plan on how she wanted to destroy Marlena with her seeing that her priestly son had hot sex with the woman Marlena loathes most in the world!   Kristen tells her she wanted to see her face and then walk away laughing at her!  Only, Marlena ruined everything was once again, since Kristen changed her mind about her plan once Brady and her rekindled their relationship!  Marlena then goes for the jugular with Kristen and tells her to get out of her wedding dress because Brady is never coming back for her.  And that the whole world will know what she really did to Eric!  Her son would never willingly sleep with her!  Once Marlena leaves, Kristen losses it and breaks her ring from Brady!

Kudos to Eileen Davidson for making Kristen pathetic and psychotic and for delivering in the pay-off fans have wanted to see!  Kristen is getting her comeuppance for her crimes against Eric, although not through a judicial system, but the systemic ruination of her tragic life!  And there is more to come on today’s episode!  Eric is about to confront Kristen! And finally also a shout-out to Deidre Hall, for showing Marlena’s strength in the key scenes and going toe to toe with Davidson!

Watch yesterday’s key scenes after the jump between Kristen and Marlena and Eric and Brady!  Then, let us know what you thought of Eileen’s performance?

Emmy worthy performance…DAYS IS SOOOOOO GOOD RIGHT NOW!!! Just wish Kristen got preggie…can you imagine Marlenas reaction…and yes, there have been women getting preggy in their 50s!!! Also, a ghostly visit is needed from Isabella(spelling?), Bradys mom, to see if she can knock some sense in Bradys dumb brainless head!!!

I kinda feel a ‘Who shot Kristen’ who could survive…and the shooter…the dr. she got drugs from! Or she’ll go to prison…maybe both…to explain E.D.s departure from the show…

Also, Days needs to bring Jack back(if M.A.) is available and willing…the Jack who died could’ve been an imposter…the real Jack met a man who closely resembled him named Rick Kennedy and they became friends…Jack told his life story to Rick and showed him pictures of his family and friends, unaware an unstable Rick had sinister plans for him…Rick wanted Jack life and his family…Rick was wanted by the mob after testifing against their leader who was sent to prison for several murders…Rick who resembled Jack had surgery done to look enough to pass as Jacks twin…then he had the… Read more »

Well that is the scenic route to bringing back Jack— the more direct approach is that Jack went undercover for the ISA and has been working with Bo all this time along with John. I seemed to recall before Jack died the character was getting some mysterious phone calls. I also remember that Roman told Jennifer she couldn’t see the body because it was too mangled. Perhaps Stefano was working with the terrorist that held Jack prisoner and they needed him on that angle while Bo worked on the Dimera angle. The explosion and the fallen elevator just gave them… Read more »

I been watching this show now for close to 2 years, and I am scratching my head why they do not get enough acting nominations or wins?? I can see why the won best soap…They show is entertaining and well acted..The plots kind of drag longer that GH, but the climax points are just as entertaining and leaving your with wanting more..Kudos to the writers, EP and cast!!!!

Greg Vaughan is one of the most underrated actors around. Not only from his work on Days but also from his work as Lucky on GH. He makes the nice guy interesting. And Eileen…well she plays bat shit whack job crazy better than just about anyone. What separates her performance from say Robin Mattson, and maybe its the writing….Kristen just honestly thinks her stupid plans will work…and when they don’t…she goes off the deep end in such extreme ways…she laughs, she drinks, ahe talks to herself, she rationalizes, she justifies…there are always a hundred things going on at once. She… Read more »

Wow — I know ED leaving is sad, but looks what came out it– I’m sure her departure changed the story line they originally intended and now we are getting this wonderful fall out to enjoy. Lovely layers like if Marlena wasn’t hell bent on destroying Kristen the video might not have every come to light. Also seeing Marlena realize her part in this mess, how hatred begets more hatred by just using facial expressions– pure gold. And like most psychopaths Kristen really cannot grasp what she did was wrong– in her deluded mind it makes perfect sense to rape… Read more »

I know… but… I’m still agonizing… if this had never come to light…. it really was Kristen intent that her bad seed machinations were hidden… she wanted to be happily married… would this have worked? YES… that’s what I wanted for her…. she wanted to move on… without this coming to pass. and yes… the good haloed people of Salem…. self-righteous… wins again… thank god… at least Daniel wasn’t at the wedding…. I had hoped for more division with Brady and Victor and even Marlena… ———— I really do have to applaud the DAYS production, especially the writing… ED captured… Read more »

Had to reply here…i totally 4got Carrie was pregnant…we may never know what she had…as for the Bradys being Catholic…it doesnt make them perfect…Shawn always thought Bo was his son until Caroline admitted Victor was his father..Kim was abused by her Uncle who was a Brady and i myself who is Catholic had to say many ‘Hail Marys’ over the years after confession…lol

And Father Eric was named after his Aunt Kimberly’s abuser. Marlena was miffed when Kimberly would call Eric the name Rick. Marlena had no idea.

this is just soap fodder: but… If I was Kristian Alfonso… and was watching the train wreck Daniel and Jennifer ARE Melissa Reeves going it alone… without Matthew Ashford’ Jack… and in both these cases… the actresses, must admit.. are dependent on… their stronger partners… Jack and Bo catapulted these two supercouples… finding that better half to further along… the treasure’ Hope and Jenn are: seems insurmountable KA, in past interviews… and storyline wise.. has never had a story of her own… all KA can offer up …. is Princess Gina… and how dull was that.. beyond Cinderella dumb… she… Read more »

Eileen Davidson is amazing; the reason I tuned back into DOOL. Unfortunately, not much will keep me watching it every day when she exits. I think Eileen is absolutely gorgeous; and she has delivered ever since returning to Salem. I do like other characters; but, none of them will keep me coming back for more, as Kristen Dimera did.

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?
