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: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
