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.

Jimh

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

Celia
Celia

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

Jimh
Jimh

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
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
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
Celia

“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.

Jimh
Jimh

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

Celia
Celia

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

Lynn

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
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.

Lia
Lia

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
Judy

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

Patrick
Patrick

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
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?

Vintage Barbie

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

Patrick
Patrick

@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 from Abs and Chad has been nonstop. I’m so happy for these two. Marci Miller has more than made Abs her own. plus, one of her stronger “suits” if you will.. is when she’s living at the DiMera Manse. she’s not so uptight .. and is actually contributing as the lady of the manor and in wheeling and dealing as a Dimera. “for the good of all” keeping the peace

I remember posting back then… I hadn’t watched DAYS in so long.. and was STRUCK – I tell you … STRUCK over the head by the love scenes between Chad and Gabs. that same day… I upchucked @GH whenst tired Sonny and Carly attempted the same script. oh it was a world of difference.

for the good of the show… it’s good to see that the three of them can move on .

heck it’s just great to see the young adults having a life of their own

Celia
Celia

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?

Judy
Judy

Cant wait the show is getting good wow

James R. Poissant
James R. Poissant

Could it be Sami?

Celia
Celia

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

Denise Knox

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
Patrick

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…. ??? perhaps Freddie Smith is saving the best for last. because he truly has chemistry with both Paul and Will. and/or it was Paul and Will who will turn out to be

it’s just more drama to unfold… yes

when you step out of the box.. and stop with the cliché .. and disrupt the wedding… let Paul and Sonny have some bliss… and know how happy they are. not the same kind of love ; no ? or yes ? when someone has to move on… from your deceased true love

I mean why not… Will would have to own up to his “infidelity” with Paul.

etc… etc…

with Gabs and Abs… AND Gramma Marlena

wow… i’m excited for this

and it’s still not unlike yours – all the same emotions

cheers

Patrick
Patrick

ARGH ! with Gabs and Arianna Grace.. AND Gramma Marlena

Rose

I say it’s Ben or Will

Billy joe Smith

It’s Ben

Raeann Beistel

Its either Dario, or Lucus. The Ben thing played out. Will is dead .

Celia
Celia

Yes, that makes sense, Raeann. Only….is Will really dead?

Vintage Barbie

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

Mo

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!!!!!

Richard
Richard

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

Celia
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
Richard

Me too! I love Sami!

Andrew Hass
Andrew Hass

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
Celia

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

Celia
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?

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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 a rage, but also be hopeful that Will is indeed alive which would also cause Paul stress.

The news will send a bunch of characters on a search for Will and be what brings Sami home.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

These wedding episodes are must see TV, Celia!

Celia

@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. So exciting. Days has been so great lately….must see TV, indeed.
Plus, the comedic scenes with Bonnie? Killing it….love, love, love it !!

Judy

we will just have to tune in today and fine out

Chrystie_Delancey

When does Tyler Christopher come on? Could it be him?

Celia
Celia

Oh, yes!!! Good one, Chrystie!!

Patrick
Patrick

LOL

the suspense and excitement is BUILDING

come on steadfast DrOOL . let’s fight this…

” I ” “do not” “give a hoot” about :

the GH Twins and Franco ! YES I’ll say it again… and go their

take your GH twins and franco and be done with … oh wait … it’s time for more Sonny and Carly

DAYS has all the more feasting to satiate, whet and stimulate every thing

is Will alive and coming home
who exactly is Tyler Christopher
are Eve and Kristen fast friends and take over
TC and Louise Sorel as Vivian Alamaine have a connect
Lisa Rinna is back ‘IN MY” orbit.

Sami is back – need we say more

the one thing that troubled me – about “Will” visit with Lucas at the chapel

as Will is telling Lucas he could find another love of his life. and he suggested getting back with Sami. course it was considered and what not

but it took me – left wondering… I HOPE THIS IS NOT a send off.. of Sami and Lucas. please tell me this isn’t so… OK I said it because I wondered it.

I still want Jade Harlow – even her name is sexed out. as Sheryl Connors. dag.. people , wiki her… she’s the definition of cat on a hot tin roof.

Lucas -Brady – Eric – Justin – Eli – every man for himself… she’s in every one senses.

now that Salem is without their vixens… Sami and Nicole. let’s fly

Chrystie_Delancey
Chrystie_Delancey

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.

Patrick
Patrick

shucks… and it’s a token of true comradeship… for the audience and these two solid actors.

god – i’m going super couple… I do care not…. these two are love defined

there are so many sleuths, machinations… mind bend or will on the horizon

just splendid feast of the best ACT’ors

Sami
Kristen
Eve
Vivian

LOL wallah this is top draw ( can’t forget – Will, Tyler Christopher, and Billie )

so we’ll let Chad and Abs honeymoon.. and live and learn from the best their is

hurry up and wait

Celia

I like it, xmascarol. Humor should be applied at every opportunity….keeps us grounded.

Calie

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.

Patrick
Patrick

OMG – there are surprises upon surprises !

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins : as Shiela… is a GOOOOOOD actress. I swear on this. She has a connect .

A Connect ! which is always a good thing.. because, evenasmuch as she’s fantastic at the kiriakis Manse. she’s dynamo stuff – with – Bonnie. T-box is acting with the best. and slinging right

she “knows” Eli.

LOVE that this could mean not just a guest arc… i’ll take recurring plus.

ANOTHER

“wait for this ”

per soapconfidential.com XANDER – Paul Telfer is heard having a conversation with Victor… LET THIS BE . LET THIS BE

I want that Xander w/Victor is being groomed for the head of Kiriakis Empire. return!

Patrick
Patrick

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
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
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.

Oh My God – I’m In Heaven

Later, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman behind the scenes where the guys visit the hair and make-up department and get the lowdown on how the actors are turned into the characters they play, and the fast and furious life of a soap star, who has to get camera ready before they hit the set.

Finally, Michael speaks with Victoria Konefal (Ciaria) on how she “Becomes Ciara Brady” as we visit her dressing room and find out just how she gets that Ciara-look that turns the head of Ben Weston every time she walks in to a room.

DAYS Deidre Hall On The Passing Of Jed Allan: “We’ve Lost One Of The Really Good Ones”

Over the last 24 hours, the soap world has been rocked by the passing of one of their favorites, Jed Allan.  On Saturday, Allan passed away at the age of 84.  So many of his co-stars and colleagues have posted their remembrances and their grief, which Michael Fairman TV had continue to add to the original post on Allan’s passing.

But on Sunday evening, none other than Allan’s most famous romantic scene partner, Days of our Lives Deidre Hall (Marlena) came forth and shared her touching thoughts on Allan’s passing via her Deidre Hall official Facebook page.

Deidre expressed: “We’ve lost one of the really good ones. It’s been decades since I stepped on to the NBC sound stage to screen test for Marlena on Days of our Lives. I was given a 4-page scene to memorize and perform with Days’ dashing bachelor, Don Craig, played confidently by Jed Allan. Jed made it all look easy with his dark good looks, deep resonant voice, a naughty twinkle, boisterous laugh and his characteristic swagger. He used his charismatic charm to win audiences as well as cast and crew. He never tired of my lack of experience and taught by example. He was deeply devoted to his sons and his darling wife Toby. When he lost her, we weren’t sure how he’d go on, but go on he did. Jed was a giant in so many ways, witnessed by the huge emptiness he leaves behind.”

Along with her sentiments, Hall posted a clip of her and Allan as Marlena and Don; when the couple was breaking-up on the series, which is posted below.

Following Hall’s remembrances on Jed Allan, several other DAYS cast members past and present also took to social media to express their thoughts and grief on the loss of Allan including James Reynolds (Abe) who noted: “Jed Allen was one of the first to welcome me to Days of our Lives.. I am grateful he took a young actor under his wing.”

Gloria Loring, who’s character of Liz Chandler was romantically involved with Allan’s Don Craig related: “I just heard that Jed Allan, the former Don Craig on Days, passed on. Rest In Peace, my old friend. I loved working with you and will remember you with a smile in my heart.”

So, what do you think of Deidre Hall’s remembrances and statement on the death of her beloved co-star from DAYS,? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
