Eileen Davidson Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

Courtesy/Peacock

Looky who is making an appearance on Days of our Lives! As viewers saw at the end of today’s episode of the NBC soap opera, there was morphing a-plenty going on, all thanks to Satan!

In a clever twist, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) who had turned Susan (Stacy Haiduk) into a cat, heads to the DiMera crypt with her.  Then later, the devil takes over Susan and after Marlena returns, and then, in an effort to seduce the chained John Black (Drake Hogestyn), SuDevil turned into Kristen, (but the OG version) and Eileen Davidson!

The story will pick up on Monday (as previewed in the latest promo from NBC) where Eileen’s Kristen tries to seduce John. Will she succeed?

Elsewhere, it’s time for Paulina (Jackée Harry ) and Abe’s (James Reynolds) wedding and the secret of Lani’s (Sal Stowers) true paternity is about to cause shockwaves in Salem.

Check out next week’s action on DAYS below, and then let us know, if you are excited to see Eileen Davidson back for a special appearance via the comment section.

What a great twist. Eileen rules and days rules great to have Eileen and Stacy in the same episode

Right!

So y’all like my new look then??

It’s been great having Eileen on Y&R lately also. Loved the way she shut Sally down on her latest self-serving idea. Too much Devon lately! Imagine a family with blood relatives Nina, Jill, Victor, Ashley, Jack, Traci, Nick, Victoria, Noah, Summer…and Devon thinks he should have temporary care of the sleeping bag, uh, I mean the baby. Wow!

A sad day in Genoa city when with all the talent and fan faves we get Abby and Devon as the new stars of the show!
How and why this is allowed to happen is simply
embaressing
I cant believe Griffith and Morina are still allowed in the building

You know, Damien, this current Devon/Abby invasion reminds me of the “genius” move of years back when GUIDING LIGHT went from cozy, cherished studio sets to “realistic” live filming. What a disaster! A typical case of being out of touch with loyal fans and catering to whims…or just arrogant inexperience. Trouble is, the fans pay the price. By the way.. could that be a plastic football doubling as Dominic?

Soaphound,
OMG, was that the most awful? I got so sick of seeing someone sitting in a barn or garage doorway, made me sick. Think they were filming out in some little town in N.J??

Actually, Violet, according to Kim Zimmer’s terrific book, that’s EXACTLY where they were! So sad. The only good memory of those days for me was that every time Tom Pelphrey (Jonathan) was outdoors, the sun used to light up that gorgeous waterfall of hair…boy is he sexy. But the rest was painful, wasn’t it? The actors tried gamely but looked sad and frustrated, just like we were.

Neck roll, not sleeping bag.. and I guess it’s a good thing blankets don’t need air.

Omg I loved loved loved having Eileen show up as Kristen!!!

I’ve always preferred Eileen!!

I really hope the big twist is that we’re watching Johnny’s movie unfolding on-screen, because this story is getting ludicrous now! Don’t get me wrong, it’s very entertaining, including when the devil raised Charlie, Nick and Deimos from the dead. But how much longer can this realistically continue for?

I am just gllad this surprise wasn’t spoiled (: I prefer Eileen to Stacey by a million to one so it’s nice to get a guest spot for my preferred Kristen!

With that said this storyline makes no sense – if the devil can do all of these things then why can’t the devil just be rid of its foes? Turn them into animals, make them disappear. I have seen worse devilish behavior on Criminal Minds and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (and sadly in the real world too). It’s just too much camp, too silly and stupid to be all that entertaining for me. I prefer GH to Days, where all we have to deal with is endless returns from the dead and the villains always getting the upper hand!

I prefer Stacey as Kristen, but I’m looking forward to seeing this.

A clever twist and surprise, NO DOUBT! To see Davidson playing Kristen and Haiduk playing Kristen and Susan in the same episode was incredible. One negative point: I have long tired of the Susan Banks character, whoever is playing her. She is too over the top to be believed and too annoying to be tolerated.

Angelique turned Barnabas’ father into a cat – I could accept Dark Shadows world of vampires, ghosts and Nicolas Blair, but DOL this fails given it it NOT a gothic show.

Truth is, I should have kept Susan as a cat. She was far less annoying that way.

MEOW!

Dark Shadows should make a return. Truth is, now is the time. Daytime, Primetime or streaming!

Days recent story proves that there is an audience for gothic daily drama. You’re exactly right!

Angelic had such a happily wicked laugh it’s a shame Marlena doesn’t sound like her!

You do realize that John, Marlena and Kristen were involved in a possession storyline on Days in the 90s don’t you? They had a much bigger budget back then and used a panther instead of a cat!

I truly miss Eileen Davison as Kristin on Day’s Of Our Lives! She’s truly the original who brought the character to life!

I love having Eileen back on days Salem hasn’t been the same since she left days she needs to come back to days for good

I completely agree! Eileen is the best Kristen, as far as I’m concerned. Love her!!!

I like Stacey but Eileen is the only true Kristin/Susan. It’s so great to have Eileen back. I watch her on Young and Restless but her character and the show is boring, I don’t know how it stays number 1.

I love Susan Banks. She brings laughter to the show. Something the world needs. Please keep her on

It was great to see Eileen.

I do feel sorry for Abe and Lani. It is really going to hurt them.

I love both ladies. Both do the characters so well.

O.k though I am enjoying your recent trip back to Salem, can you leave poor John alone and get back to Genoa City. Abby needs you, she’s wacko!
