As many know, TV Guide Canada’s Nelson  Branco first broke and reported the news that Days of our Lives co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin is on his way out of Salem.

In this week’s Suds Report, Branco received some elaboration from sources stating, “Gary did not agree with the firings. He was very upset about having to let Nadia, Crystal [Chappell], and Louise [Sorel] go. He doesn’t understand what’s happening. But he did understand and suspect that he’d be the next to go.”  An actor also told Branco, “He’ll be missed.”

On-Air On-Soaps has additionally confirmed that an official announcement on the situation will be addressed as early as Monday morning.

So, who is set to replace Tomlin? Stay tuned.

I don’t know what’s going on at Days either. Maybe all the fired Days employees can start up their own soap. Morale has got to be low on-set with no one knowing who’s next. When you let top talent like Louise and Crystal and Nadia and great newbies like Bren go, it just boggles the mind. I don’t want to see just the Bradys and Hortons. I’m enjoying Quinn’s story and his interaction with Vivian, Gus, Chloe, and Victor. I can’t wait to see how his connection to Viv is revealed. It’s a shame this story, the actors, and fans… Read more »

I agree. Im not Gary’s Tomlins fan at all especially because we dont have EJAMI, but I agree with him in relation to the firings. I love Louise, Crystal, Nadia and now Bren. They are great assets to the show. There stories were just getting interesting. I hope this firing means that RAFE will be gone for good.
I do however wish him the best of luck in his future.
Im glad the vets are coming back but its sad at the way its happening.

I think the drama going on behind the scenes at Days is more fascinating than most of the drama we’re seeing on the screen right now….

Funny, I was thinking the same thing that Frank Valentini would take over the reigns. I think Ed Scott would make a great EP. He worked wonders there before.

I love Ed Scott- he gave EJAMI the best story but when Tomlin came along, that bwent out the window. I wish he would come back.

It would be nice to have an EP whom actually listens to ALL of the fan bases not just the one of his favored friend. This is a business and personal favorites should not over shadow the business and that is what has happened with the EP and DH. Personal and business should not mix because then you get crap and that is what DOOL has been for the past year, DH pushing HER characters and HER favorites as was GT, NOT what the fans wanted. I pray that the new EP looks at the show as a whole and… Read more »

I wish him well but I’m glad he’s gone along with his Passions agenda. Passions was cancelled twice for a reason. I hated Passions and that influence on DAYS just made me switch the channel. I agree w/ S. McLaughlin. The show should focus on the big picture and not just the favored few. The slanted writing was a MAJOR turn off. It’s unfortunate that so much time was wasted on such drivel when 2013 is just around the corner. The fans should have been given compelling and riveting s/ls not manure. What a waste of resources and talent the… Read more »

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?
