Days Of Our Lives

EW.com learns "DAYS may have Gay storyline in the works!"

Could it finally be that one of the last soaps you would ever think would incorporate a gay storyline into their story canvas, may be ready to do so?  Well according to EW.com tonight it just may be so for NBC’s longest running scripted television program, Days of our Lives.  EW reveals, “We have learned exclusively that a gay storyline may be in the works! From what we gather, it may involve a current cast member hooking up with someone new. ”

EW also states a Days of our Lives spokeswoman declined to comment on the situation. But let’s look at this for a second. Many fans have been lobbying for a same-sex relationship between the characters of Will (Chandler Massey) and Chad (Casey Deidrick), but also there is speculation that a gay storyline could involve the newest addition to the Hernandez family, Dario (Francisco San Martin).  Or, could it be none of the gents above?

If DAYS was to launch a gay love story, what existing character on the canvas would you like to see involved in this story? Tell us here.

Please Days, let it be Chad and Will! Fans have been wanting those two for so long, not to mention the fact that Casey and Chandler have proven to be adequate in the chemistry department. Not some new guy Days, CHAD AND WILL. I don’t want summer hotness, I want summer CHILL!

I would love for the first gay s/l to be with Chad and Will. Those two guys have so much chemistry together. They are on the same level as EJami to me and that’s saying a lot! Every time they’re in a scene together they light each other up and I don’t even see anyone else in the scene. Another DiMera/Brady “forbidden love” is gold and this time tptb could do the story that EJami were meant for right from the beginning. I hope tptb don’t waste this opportunity. It’s the second time a story like this with actors who… Read more »

The actor playing Dario is a non-starter, can’t see him having chemistry with anyone. Hope they don’t use Will & Chad. While these actors work very well together I can only see this storyline tanking and destroying the charcters future with the show.

I sincerely hope that there will NOT be a gay storyline on DOOL or any other American soap. I say this definitely not out of homophobia but beacuse it is a well known fact that gay characters are never ever given a happy ending on any American soap or show. QAF separated Brian and Justin in the end. ATWT killed of Reid, left Luke to a life of pain, suffering, and misery; and reduced Noah to a no show, while giving every straight charcater and couple a happy ending. OLTL made Kyle and Oliver disappear unceremonoiusly. In the end die… Read more »

I agree with most of what you said.The last straw for me was the way they ended ATWT and destroyed Luke and Reid.That was truly my favorite story of all time .I loved the characters of Luke and Reid and adored Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens.If they were cruelly destroyed,Reid being killed and Luke grieving for the love of his life, i don’t have much hope for any gay storylines.Because to me this was the best of the best.Some people want to be like an Ostrich and bury their head in the sand! So sad !!!!

The Olivia and Natalia story line ended happily on GL. Except for having to accomodate Jessica Leccia’s maternity leave, the storyline was very well put together and very moving. They wound up together with a supportive blended family and supportive community. However, I think the biggest problem with having gay/lesbian story lines on American soaps is that they’re not allowed to show much affection. They get just a couple of kisses and a ton of longing looks, hand holding and hugs. Meanwhile the straight couples are humping like rabbits in scenes that are one bed sheet away from soft core… Read more »

Days already has a same sex pairing with sexual chemistry in Chad and Will. Those two would be the best choice for a romance as the foundation has already been set. They are frenemies who sparkle in scenes together. The fact that a Chill pairing would instigate another Horton/Dimera drama would be icing on the cake. There is a lot of story that could be had from this pairing. Much more story than pairing them up with anyone else currently on the canvas. At this point Days is creatively dead. A Chill pairing would get them press and possibly reinvigorate… Read more »

I feel like a same-sex coupling on DAYS could be a real head-turner. I feel like what went wrong with ATWT’s Luke is that they wrote themselves into a big storm of publicity and then wrote themselves into a corner to which they couldn’t back out of. And OLTL had the perfect opportunity to succeed but didn’t roll with it as they probably felt they didn’t wish to ruin KISH. As for Y&R, they let me down. I felt like out of all the soap operas, they could’ve handled it well but just insulted it. Phillip is a gay male… Read more »

Rafe2 & Daniel! Daniel & Bo!!! BRADY BLACK and PHILLIP KIRIAKAS- please, please, please. (Alas, it would be short lived since Jay is leaving the show. But, after falling into a lustfilled night in Brady’s arms, and a subsequnt short lived romance, Phillip could leave town in a panic, leaving BRADY BLACK to find romance with EJ!!) Rafe 1 and EJ! Of course, Will (but I wish he could be played by the previous actor who played the role) and Chad. All kidding aside, this could be a wonderful story oppotunity- OF COURSE, Stefano, and probably EJ would be homophobic,… Read more »

Unfotunately Michael, times haven’t changed and homphobia is very much prevalent in society and even more so on American soaps and shows. Did you see how QAF, ATWT, and OLTL treated the gay characters. I have never seen a happy ending for a gay character. And, this trend will most likely continue.

NOOOOO gay storyline needed. REALLY. Enhance tradition and develop a strong consistent family, marital and single heterosexual relationships. Remember the Soaps are fantasy with a touch of reality.

I am a believer in tradition and traditional families, but having said that this is not the world we live in today.Love comes in all kinds of packages .I think it would be a mistake for people to pretend that gay love does not exist.Any relationship that has respect and love for one another has to be acknowleged! The families of today are not the traditional families of years ago.And what is a family anymore?There are so many divorces, babies without Fathers supporting them,neglect, abuse, etc.A loving , committed, monagamous,relationship makes a REALfamily.That’s just the way it is.And no ,… Read more »

So why do you watch in the first place? The intellectually stimulating storylines? What is really needed is more soap operas for gays and lesbians on network TV not through web subscriptions. That way you can tune in to something that turns you on and not be turned off by the straight people leaping into bed. Now if we are talking prime time shows that have nothing to do with leaping in bed, well bring on all the gay characters you want. I’m perfectly fine with homosexuality. I have relatives and friends who are gay, I just don’t want to… Read more »

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.
