Greg Vaughan Gets Contract Extension At Days of our Lives!

Good news today from fan favorite Greg Vaughan of Days of our Lives!  For those worried that perhaps Eric Brady might be part of the Salem serial murder killing spree, rest assured.  That’s apparently not happening.

Vaughan tweeted that he has re-signed with the NBC soap opera for more time in Salem, plus Greg related he also will be featured in a new movie from the Hallmark Channel.

In his tweet, Greg excitedly shared to his fans: “Great day today! Official contract extension @DaysofourLives & new movie @hallmarkchannel Truly Blessed!”

Does this mean that Ericole will finally have their chance at love and it will stick this time?  Viewers next week will see the end of the line for Vaughan’s other DAYS love interest, Melissa Archer (Serena) when she meets her maker, and from what has been previewed it looks like it might be Eric who stumbles upon her lifeless body.

So, happy to hear Greg will be sticking around Salem?  Hoping that Eric and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) will build a future together? Comment below!

I happy Greg will be sticking around, but upset to hear/read it! DAYS’ performers should be under a gag order. They shouldn’t discuss contract renewals, which would add suspense to the serial murder storyline. Put a lid on it, DAYS!!!!!

I was hoping Erik would return to the priesthood and turn out to be the killer…each victim would have been murdered by strangulation and found wth a rosary around their neck and one of the Ten Commandments pinned to their clothing…and yet the Salem police cant figure out whodunnit…oops, sorry, ive watched to much GH and their dumb cops…lol

We don’t know for how long the contract extension was for. Eric may have split personality we don’t know about yet. GG commented that he knows who the killer is and its someone you would never suspect. The killer is suppose to be aroundbinto 2016.

I’m sure he didn’t post without at least tacit approval from his bosses at Days. There may be some reason they want people to know his character in particular is sticking around. Or, it is a soap: it may be a ruse. New contract…. but they will bump off Eric in 13 weeks. You never know!

Or the character is bumped off and the extension is needed for some appearance beyond the grave– or they did kill him off but changed their mind and want to bring him back from the dead like they did during the infamous killing spree a few years back when pretty much everyone in town was murdered only to be found alive months later on Stefano’s island.

I’m so happy to find out that Greg has been extended. He’s a good actor, and the material the previous writing team gave him was so subpar. I hope this means great things for Eric.

DOOL was great today… love, suspense, mystery… keep up the great work.

They need to pair Jen with someone interesting (i.e. not Daniel). Holding out hope for a Jack return for the 50th.

ALLright : I am giving Greg Vaughan a reprieve a let … that his character … per Deidre Hall…. when she and we found out that he was cast to play her son….. ” he’s too beautiful” oh! notwithstanding… the writing…. no ones good enough for him… has Kristen put her stamp on his libido? is he caught in the middle of his virtue and wanton ideal is the retread of Nicole still rendering or piquing ? darned tootin ! Greg Vaughan is today’ current William Holden ! he just needs a story Brady just needs a story… stop being… Read more »

Totally agree. Jeanne Theresa can do so much better than bully Brady. Daniel needs to be back burnered. They need to perk up the writing for Eric. He is ‘too beautiful’.

I like Greg. But the character of Eric needs a complete overhaul. He’s a horrible character in his current incarnation — always whining, always yelling, enough!

I am glad I am not the ONLY one who thinks that his character of Eric is about as exciting as unbuttered toast.
I do not have anything against the actor, I am happy to hear that he will remain on the show, but they need to spice up his lines, or something – his character is very whiney and childish and overall, bland to watch. Aside from that I guess I love him LoL.

I was hoping he wouldnt resign and sign with GH as Lucky. The character needs to be on the show and he was damn good. JJ gets the upper hand because of his chemistry with TG. But Greg was really good on GH.

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.
