Greg Vaughan: Hallelujah! Okay, forget what I said about the horrible writing on DOOL. If this preview shows what is in store in the coming weeks, there is reason to CELEBRATE!! — Like it’s 1999 (or some version of that)!

I 2nd your sentiments! The soulful gorgeous greg vaughan can add more heat to the summer and melt my screen ! I hope the ptb give him and Nicole the attention they deserve especially after that budget wedding they gave them after more decades of being a tortured couple! And how refreshing is it to actually see teens being teens in the summer and hanging out by the beach!? Its been forever since soaps focused on the teen set during those younger audience focused days but fortunatly Ron remembers how much fun they used to be! Thank you Days for… Read more »

Thank you, Damien! I definitely agree with your characterization of Greg Vaughan. And your point about the teen set is also worthwhile. Glad we’re sympatico on the direction of this show. Take care, Friend!

SORAs’d Johnny looks too much like Will, including being about the same age. He should have dark hair and look more like a DiMera. Also, didn’t he lose an eye when he had cancer as a little kid? It must have grown back like Philip’s amputated leg did. Not at all surprised to see Eric back, and Ciara back yet again. Not betting anybody’s soul as to how long either one will stick around though. And as for NuElvis…. well, we all know what the recasts have been like on this show since ReRon has been writing, so don’t expect… Read more »

Oh, Satan….you are too funny for words. I greedily look for your comments just to have a good laugh!! …. I hope Sami and Lucas do get back together. Pardonnez-moi, mes amis, but I have had my fill of Australians and Brits running around everywhere…..including Harry Windsor —cry me a river. Now, Nicole—-what the hey??——-cross your legs!!—albeit Xander has THEEEEE bod!! I speak as a married woman in love with her husband. I don’t get it!! Why do soaps continually kill marriages? Why put characters in such situations? Am I the only fool who cannot understand how a woman falls… Read more »

Looks like a fun summer. I’m happy to see Johnny. EJ isn’t as dashing as I’d like him to be but I’ll give it time.
And how clever that Jackee lives in 227.

Very clever reference indeed. Is she out to destroy Horton Square, as we know it I wonder.

Pretty interesting preview, I’m intrigued! So, Abe narrates the beginning of the new summer promo and he is not even featured at all in the New Summer Promo itself??? We need to see more of Abe, has he been reduced to re-occurring? I’d like to see Valerie return and have her hook-up with Abe again. Ok, So glad ERIC BRADY is back in the form of Greg Vaughan! With that said, is Eric back…? Is GREG back on-contract??? This article doesn’t relay such information. Is he back short-term? What’s his deal…? I hope we don’t lose GREG again. Happy to… Read more »

P.S. I miss Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey). Zander & now, Gwen?!?! NO!!! Return Sarah Horton! And, I hope that Maggie & Victor return at some point when they are ready/comfortable to come back even if they just pop in/out. I miss them so much on the show. And, totally miss Sonny & Will!

She quit. Maybe after awhile they will bring Sarah back with a different actress in the role? They do that a lot on soaps.

Linsey did not quit. She was let go.

Zander and Gwen? How is that for bangers and mash!?!?

I was thrilled and intrigued by the promo, but you pose some interesting questions, Jeremy. To be continued…

Ah! I loved bangers and mash when I went to school in the UK for my BA/MA. Wish I could move back.

Uh oh! They say that Nicole is holding a secret. I bet its a live secret, courtesy of Xander.

Satan
Guest

It would be ridiculous for them to attempt to write Nicole as “pregnant” now. After her 666 previous miscarriages, the whole “Sydnapping” storyline where she stole Sami’s kid & was raising her with Elvis, and the drama over Chloe’s secret surrogate pregnancy with Holly, the spawn of Nicole & the time traveling mutant Eggman, Daniel Jonas. So Nicole’s inability to carry a child has been fairly well established. Her one night stand with Xander will probably be revealed to Eric at some point, of course. But there won’t be any direct physical evidence of it. More likely just Sami telling… Read more »

Violet, you went the extra step. You could be onto something, Friend…

Celia
Guest

Hey, James,
Nicole getting pregnant was the first thought that popped into my head.–I said as much above, to Satan. What would be the reason? To break up Nicole and Eric.
Having sex does not always bear fruit—-Plus, Nicole could have hidden her cheating forever—-lying is certainly not beneath her. She’s a survivor and as such, she would do anything not to get caught.
But, she can’t hide a pregnancy unless she has an abortion.
Later, my friend!!

Jamesj75

Jamesj75

Hi Celia: I agree with your perspective on this. I like the character of Nicole and understand her flaws. I’m always willing to give her a pass, but I doubt that Eric will… And it’s not beneath Nicole to pass off Zander’s baby as Eric’s — timing be damned! I didn’t see today’s episode yet, but I fully expect Nicole to vomit sometime soon. And on that note, take care, Friend!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Very true, James. Nicole could very well try to pass a baby as Eric’s. If it’s only a span of a couple of weeks, Nicole may not even know who the baby daddy is, herself….–or say the baby is a premie–
A woman’s bodily functions can be irregular, time and again—-so, if she is, indeed, pregnant; I wonder if she will just be complacent about not knowing —-until the baby is in dire straits and needs daddy’s blood—- typically commonplace for a soap.
Bye, my friend–

I don’t like the Gwen character, but she is portrayed by a good actress. I am gonna hate seeing Xander with Gwen. I prefer Xander with Sarah. I didn’t like seeing Xander with Nicole, but I at least like the Nicole character. It really bugged me Kristen confessed about all her captors except for Sarah. It bugs me no one (Rex, Maggie) has compared stories regarding Sarah yet and figured out she is really missing. Xander would be rescuing his dear Sarah and that would be a good story. Even if he had moved on with another flame, he would… Read more »

Maybe Kristen said something to drugged up Kate who will eventually remember. Or something is said to Chloe. As for Gwen she has all the makings of an Iris Carrington. Jack will very likely hire her at the paper she will excel and then devote her life to making Jennifer’s life hell.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Well said—Agreed—Great analysis–except that Kate is faking it. How far will she go with the charade? Gwen is a mystery. Is she really trying to change? If so, she should fess up by telling the truth—even if it means disappointing Jack again—-even if she thinks there’s the risk of losing his trust—doing so can only strengthen their bond as father and daughter; not diminish it. The truth is the simplest way out!! She should divulge the fact that she’s being blackmailed. Some characters appear so innocent and victimized, yet beneath that seeming vulnerability lies a viper. —Reminds me of another… Read more »

Oh how I adore Gregg Vaughan!!! I have been a huge fan of his ever since his breakout soap interduction on “Y&R” way back when. I have followed his career ever since. Total leading man with great looks & talent!! I might add a very sexy body!!! Glad he’s back!!!!

I wish Eric and Greg had stayed gone. I don’t enjoy him as Eric. His performance is boring.

Other than that, the preview looks great!

Celia
Guest
Celia

I agree, Momo—-don’t like the character myself—too holier-than-thou. Too sedate. Reminds me of Michael on GH. What a bore!!—albeit, I am anticipating where the Nicole/Xander/Eric plot-line goes—-if there is a story to be told.
Then again, methinks a romance between Xander and Gwen seems to be stirring on the horizon.
Will Xander be the hero to figure out Dr. Whatshisname is a baddie and save the day?

Momo
Guest

Well, Eric was a priest! LOL I liked Eric when Jensen played him.

I understand now why Sarah had to go.

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL—being a priest doesn’t necessarily make any man of the cloth adhere to his vows. I am Roman Catholic, yet, the vow of chastity is man-made, not God-made. I, personally, do not agree for priests or nuns to be celibate–but, who am I? Nothing!! However, God did say to go and multiply. Once upon a time priests were able to marry–until 1123 when someone in the Curch’s council changed the rules and forbade sex —-for both priests and nuns—but, with a “wholelotta” hanky-panky going on. Seriously, whether he be priest or nay, Eric is no inspiration to anyone or anything.… Read more »

And? What happens now? I’m pretty certain Nicole has fallen out of love with her husband—she has the hots for Rafe—she satiated that craving with Xander. Ahh, these crazy children—so fickle!! LOL.
Okay, on another note—soooo–what’s with the fire at the cabin? Poetic justice?? Or just another normal, insane day for nutty Jan?!

Satan
Guest
Satan

That has to be the 666th fire in that cabin. I don’t know what kind of wood they used to build that thing, but if it’s really that fire resistant, I got to get a few truckloads of that kind of lumber shipped down here to Hell, where it would really be useful!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
