Freddie Smith On DAYS Double Wedding: "The Material, The Story, The Twists And Turns Made It A Blast To Film These Scenes"

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

This week on Days of our Lives, the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) begins! And from the latest promo from NBC, it looks like there is certainly a wedding crasher on the horizon!

The drama is set for these duos, but will anyone get their happily ever after, and say their “I do’s”? DAYS Daytime Emmy winner, Freddie Smith took to Instagram to share his enthusiasm for the upcoming scenes that fans of the NBC series will begin to see reveal itself.

Smith expressed: “Can’t wait to see the double wedding! It was one of those days that reminds me why I wanted to be an actor. The material, the story, the twists and turns made it a blast to film these scenes. The entire cast and crew brought the heat and I have a feeling the final product will show that. Who do you think crashes the wedding?”

Watch this week’s promo for DAYS on the double wedding after the jump.  Then place your bets: Will both couples, one couple, or none of the couples get hitched? What do you think will go down when the wedding crasher shows up? Comment below!

It’s Ben.

I thought it would be Will..or is it Ben…

Good guesses, Jimmy….thinking the same thing. How about Sami, come to tell Sonny off??

That is a good one…i havent been watching much…been ill and dealing with four kidney stones..so i have missed a lot…

Celia

Sorry to hear that, Jimmy. You have had it a bit rough this past year.
The good stuff out of this is that you always spring back.
Drink lots of water….. sometimes, if small enough, and per my husband, kidney stones may be ‘passed’ naturally.
Back to DOOL, LOL….do you think Will is done? Do you think we will see him again? More importantly, is he alive?
Take care, my friend.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, again, Jimmy.
We only saw a bit of whomever it is, right? We know it’s a male; we know he’s young. If Will appeared to Lucas in a drunken stupor, then he wasn’t real. I’m beginning to think it may be Ben, come to claim his ‘wife’ and ‘son’, Thomas. In his sick head, Ben may still be thinking that.

Celia
Guest

“Ain’t” that sweet !! Truly….I love both Paul and Sonny.
But, truth be told; in my heart of hearts, this would be the most dramatic, opportune time for Will to appear….and, not as a ghost.

They could fool us and it could be Sonny’s brother-forget name at moment!!!

You have a point, Jimmy. Anything is a go!!

I’m glad Ben is back. Because his distraction is gonna stop Sonny and Paul from getting married. Because he is gonna confront the killer of the man he really loves.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yes, Lynn…but, only if Will is alive. Both Paul and Sonny deserve some happiness.
As far as Ben….I’d love for him to return either on Days as another character ( it was done before with Roman, when he played the part of Chris Kasochek(sp), or on another soap).
Not only is he gorgeously HOT; Robert is extremely talented at his craft.

I am hoping it’s Ben arriving to break that crap up. I want Chad miserable for a long time after what he did to Gabi.

Judy

all he did was go back to abby she should of known he still love abby

Patrick
Guest

correct – it had everything to do with giving Chad – something – to do… till they could get Marci Miller up and running… and boy has she landed.

you know that 6 month leap… doesn’t happen quickly enough.

( wish it wasn’t so far ahead they produce )

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL, Lia!! What did Chad do to Gabi? It’s the other way around….that’s how I see it….
With all due respect, Gabi has always wanted Chad….stalked him, while she knew he was with Abby. Have you forgotten how crazy she was?
And, even after Abby left, or presumed dead, Gabi did her best to be with Chad. He was hurt and lonely and fell for her machinations.
With friends like her who needs enemies? Is that how the saying goes?

Chad broke up with her like a gentleman…she knew he was still in love with Abby all along #chabigailforever

@Lia . that is truthfully , a FUN’ny post. and yes… I will swear on the mountaintops… just how… much… I love my Gabs she is the cutest of the cute.. and with age, experience, and a well deserved “leading man of her own” do you think it’s Eli ? I see sexy fun. sidebar: it’s the bees knees that he’s the grandson of Julie. she’s the real deal hoot. ie: Chad and Abs : how they clinched ” IT ” every since Abs was hit by the car that was meant for Dario ? the response and emotion reeling… Read more »

Yes, Camila is beautiful—-I just do not like the character.
She always makes bad choices. So, I do hope TPTB do ground her. Eli may be the IT guy….problem is: how will Dragon-Lady Julie react?

Could it be Sami?

Yeah, James, I said the same thing….maybe Sami? That would be a show-stopper!!

I do hope that the weddings go forward, we all know that Will will be back but let’s not forget he cheated on sonny and turned him away when sonny needed him. Let will wish them happiness and move on with his own life.

Patrick
Guest

that would be something… wouldn’t it. because I too… really like Christopher Sean acting, as Paul. he’s a sensitive endearing Man. Just like Sonny, just like Will. wow… gotta think about that one any way… the magic certainly was their… before Freddie Smith, LEFT the show. since his return. I kinda had the feeling that … Freddie Smith wanted to be fleshed out.. given more opportunities to meld and mix with the cast. AND the show went their. where they boggled things… was when Sonny went all corporate mogul and small fried out. THANKFULLY.. RC saw this and rectified this….… Read more »

I hope they dont bring him back even tho I loved his character more than the new Will he was horrible! Will needs to stay dead Samis heart broke

I think Ben crashes.

Looking forward to Days. I used to watch as routine, but now I’m actually looking forward to watching and seeing what happens!!!!!

I think Sami crashes the wedding with news that Will is alive and being hidden somewhere!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Will has been recuperating in the capable, loving hands of his mother….with EJ and the kids.
We saw Will in the flesh at the chapel with Lucas. Now, Sami comes charging , a’ la Valkyrie to announce what you just said, Richad.
I have been saying this since Ben “killed” will…. I hope you’re right.

Richard
Guest
Richard

Me too! I love Sami!

Andrew Hass
Guest

I don’t think Sami would let people believe Will was dead for close to 2 years and not say anything.So i don’t think Sami had anything to do with Will’s death been faked.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I had a thought, Richard. Could the wedding crasher be Stefano?????

Celia
Guest
Celia

Nah…scratch that, LOL. Stefano in a leather jacket? Double LOL….not stocky enough….young hands…It has to be Will. Please, ye gods?

The wedding crasher is Ben, Celia. He makes the most sense because he has “ties” with both couples, plus, he was a patient at the mental hospital. Ben will crash the wedding and announce Will is alive. Ben’s appearance could terrify Abby or prove to her tht she’s over his hold on her for the torture he put her through, but also give her hope that her cousin is alive which would absolve her of the guilt she feels for Will’s “death.” Sonny would finally see Ben for the first time since Ben “murdered” Will which could send him in… Read more »

@4ever DAYS. Oh, my gosh, 4ever, I am so hooked ……going crazy. I do agree with you….I have wracked my brain; banged my head against the walls, trying to figure this out. Finally, what you just said dawned on me…..I said to myself, it has to be Ben. I was stuck on Sami for the longest time….then Will…then, incredibly, even Stefano. But, the little bit of the mysterious ‘crasher’ which was shown, was enough to determine it was a young male, by the clothing and his left hand….a young hand. Thank you, my friend. I definitely agree with your premise.… Read more »

Abigail does look beautiful. I just don’t see how Chad and Abigail will ever be allowed to be happy. They always have these problems coming between them and more than most super couples.

I want it to be Dario. I do not see Chad and Abigail being a super couple together. I also would not mind it to be Sami with news that Will may be alive.

I prefer Dario appearing over anyone else. I think Dario is well needed in Salem.

sorry this bit of info … I think was from the “inquisitor”

i’m hoping it wasn’t an old article… so want Paul Telfer to come back home.

ANYWAY: Marlena is saying goodbye to Eric ( Greg Vaughan ) let’s hope this isn’t a swan song for and with Nicole.

Chrystie_Delancey

I read that Greg is staying. What I don’t like is that he is soooo good and his longing for Nicole and he and Ari have so much chemistry and she will be leaving soon. I wish they would bring Theresa back for Brady because they were good together and now hopefully they will recast Nicole or find a new love interest for Eric. He and Jen do not work.

Chrystie_Delancey

Yes on Xander too. Paul Telfer would make a GREAT leading man if given the chance. That accent, that body! He is sooo needed. He can be reformed. He is capable of caring for a woman. He showed shades of it with Nicole. He has chemistry with everyone.

Vincent Irizarry Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

There will be a Deimos Kiriakias sighting next week on NBC’s Days of our Lives, and viewers will get to see Daytime Emmy winner, Vincent Irizarry, back in this bad boy role.

In story, MarDevil (Deidre Hall) decides its time to resurrect some of the Salem deceased, and from the looks of it will choose not so nice-ones to wreak a bit of havoc on the residents of the town.

As DAYS fans recall, back in 2017, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) killed Deimos when he set out to drug everyone at a major party with the hallucinogen Halo all in his effort to steal a a valued amulet.

Irizarry confirmed his return via Facebook by simply stating: “Heeeeere’s Deimos! 👿

Now, who else will be stirring up trouble from beyond the grave on Halloween week on Days? Share your thoughts below and if you are excited to see Vincent back in Salem for the spookiest time of the year!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
