Eileen Davidson delivered another hilarious star turn on yesterday’s episode of Days of our Lives when she reprised both her roles of Susan Banks and Kristen DiMera!

The delicious history between these two characters was touched upon when Kristen got the shock of her life when Susan answered the door at the DiMera mansion!

Later, Kristen told Susan she cannot believe that someone like her would have gotten the upper hand on her plans and plots years ago! To get rid of her nemesis, Kristen pulled out via her cell phone call the live voice of Stefano (Joe Mascolo) Susan freaked and left the manse!

When it was over we were left wanting more! But was that the end of the dual roles for now?   Let us know your thoughts on the Susan and Kristen face-off?

I thought Susan was a little too campy but at the same time i actually enjoyed the scene too…Days needed a little humor and this is it!!!

Me, too! I literally laughed out loud! Loved Susan’s scenes with Maxine, too-at the hospital. I think it’s cute how much she loves her “Dr. Marlena Evans” and how she still pines away for John. Kristen and Stefano were hysterical too!

i want more Susan. She was wonderful. The re was something a bit off about her this time around that was different from the past. But I loved her none the less and I hope that we see Susan until EJs last episode but I feel that was it.

Yes! I have enjoyed the episodes so far this week. I am hoping they keep Susan around, at least until EJ exits the canvas. Susan Banks scenes take the show back to the Reilly era, which for me was must watch television (:

I could watch Eileen Davidson every day! She is my favorite actress (on the show) and I absolutely love Kristen Dimera! I was hoping to see more Kristen/Susan scenes today. No luck! I think Susan is adorable and very funny-a bit eccentric and childlike-but very funny to watch!

I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to watch Eileen as both Kristen and Susan AND Ashley Abbott on Y&R all in the same afternoon. We see the day ahead episode of Y&R in Canada. To watch her performances back to back like that was a real treat. She deserved that Emmy years ago and even on a regular day Eileen always gives her all. I hope she continues to shine for many years to come!

Well, I guess she won’t be the one to guide EJami out of Salem. Too bad Susan was only in for one day. Maybe she’ll return. I would have liked to have some John-Susan scenes. And Susan has never met her grandchildren? That seems odd and if it is the case, why didn’t she stay to meet them?

I thought the character would have been on longer– enjoyed the performance by ED– but as a character a part of me wished Susan had grown a bit in the years since we last saw her. I wish she would have stood up to the Dimeras a little bit more–before freaking out and leaving town— I also thought they might have used a bit more flashbacks to when Susan was first on screen just to update viewers who weren’t watching back them– but all in all a nice treat and an enjoyable but brief trip down memory lane.

Very uncomfortable to watch. It’s a silly storyline, especially with her looking the way she does, her son is a billion and he can’t give “mother” some money to get her teeth fix?

I know a millionaire who looks like that. Susan is somewhat like a child…and what child likes going to the dentist?

Gee I don’t know if it’s just me but I found yesterday’s episode to be a snooze fest – I guess every episode can’t be a cliffhanger – obviously it ended on a happy note with EJ laughing and Sami smiling when the kids were tickling him. I don’t mean to sound overly critical but it was an episode one could miss and you really wouldn’t miss much.

I think there may be more to this than meets the eye…. I am pretty sure it is part of the entire end game for EJ and Sami.

Excellent call, Elite. Spot on. As I myself posted the other day, Susan is here to pave the way for EJ’s departure from this stage. She senses danger…..ultimately, EJ will be running for his life !!

Days Of Our Lives

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?
