Heather Lindell Returns to Days of our Lives

Photo: JPI

This week on Days of our Lives, look for the return of the manipulative and psychotic Jan Spears when Heather Lindell reprises her juicy role on the NBC daytime drama series.

Heather has played the role on and off since 2004, and in story, Jan has a longstanding vendetta against Belle  (Martha Madison) in her quest for Shawn (Brandon Beemer)

Now, according to the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jan will get a visit from the MarDevil and share scenes with the one and only Deidre Hall (Marlena).

Lindell told SOD on the upcoming story and scenes that fans will see: “I was definitely into it, mostly because I wasn’t possessed, so I wasn’t too nervous about my performance. Deidre Hall is such a professional and so used to inhabiting the character that it seemed very natural for her. I had a blast shooting it with her, we had a really good time.”

And in the latest promo for DAYS (see below), something is truly off when there are not one, but two Belles that Shawn has to contend with.  The work of the MarDevil?

So, excited to see Heather back on-screen and causing all sorts of trouble for Shelle? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

So come all ye unfaithful
don’t be left out in the cold
You don’t need no invitation, no
your ticket is your soul……

If ever there was a woman in need of serious help it most definitely Jan Spears. You would think that after 17 years Jan would have gotten the message that Shawn wants no part of her.

It’s not her fault for once. Did you see Mardevil start bringing her out of the coma? It’s another crazy scheme mixing her up with Belle and Shawn.

So the Devil will take over Jan, transform into Belle, sleep with Shawn, and then reveal itself as Jan? For what reason, exactly? This better be one of the last twists with this possession story because it’s starting to overstay its welcome. Hoping for a New Year’s miracle that this story ends!

Well, ReRon loves to repeat himself, and one of his favorite gimmicks is the “unexpected” arrival of somebody at the stroke of midnight on New Years Evil.

We know that “Father” Eric Brady is coming back soon…. will he be the NYE return, or will he actually make it back to his family for Christmas, and somebody else will return later??

Because the way this show airs during the Hellidays… they’re probably still going to be on Christmas through the 28th and then it will magically be New Years Evil the next day…

Jimmy -why does the Devil do anything? He does it for the fun of it. Obviously, the Devil is bored and wants to create havoc for the mere mortals living in Salem . After which, the Devil will sit back with a bag of popcorn and watch the show.

In my own defense…. Hell gets kinda boring after a few thousand years. A Devil’s gotta break the monotony somehow!!

This MarDevil story needs to continue on and on and on. It’s not overstaying anything! More more more! Delicious! Best story EVER!

This satanic storyline is truly getting old and boring. There is absolutely nothing endearing about the characters. No heart-stopping moment. No climax. No interesting scenes. It’s silly and childish. Jan Spears is such a wishy-washy character, regardless her crazy/evil ways. Plus, I really don’t care how much fun Deidre is having personifying Lucifer. Irritating!!
I actually FF through the Bedeviled-Marlena scenes. Please let it be over!!

Totally with you here, Celia — on all points. I initially stated I thought it was embarrassing for the actors to utter these lines. And the “cringeworthiness” continues… Some thought it would all come to an end by Halloween. Sadly, no. To me, this whole storyline is an embarrassment to the show in particular — and to the genre in general. Over the years, soaps have stolen (recycled?) storylines from other soaps. For example, GH had unsurpassed success with Luke and Laura going on adventures, so other soaps copied that formula. And the list goes on and on. Let’s suppose,… Read more »

As always, Jamesj75, you make excellent, thoughtful points. My question about this bedeviled (!) story is: What demographic is it aimed at? If it were 1973 and we were still in a frenzy over “The Exorcist”, then maybe I could understand it. But now? The average cable series has far worse, and more disturbingly graphic, horrors going on. Every other show has a supernatural element to it but these travesties are mainly for teenagers. Are they hoping to lure in those kids to DOOL? If you want younger viewers, bring back Casey Moss and Chandler Massey for some talented AND… Read more »

Thank you, Soaphound! Great points by YOU! “What demographic” — indeed! And I have to agree with the “high-school level production.” This reminds me: in the episode in question (Satan wakes up Jan), Jan commented on Marlena’s eyes changing color, but the audience didn’t see that. I wonder whether the contact lenses have worn out their welcome with Ms. Hall, as this storyline has also worn out its welcome… And in another topic, I meant to reply to you in another thread, in which you gave great commentary regarding the “Corinthos Crime Hour” — love it! And your suggestions for… Read more »

Hey, James, I like the inexplicably fantastical supernatural as much as anyone—However, this is not a continuous SYFY saga.—especially when said storyline has been hung up to dry for twenty-five years and then revisited without a stimulating, “hold your breath” input. The output will unfailingly be as bland as pap. I think the writers have gone too far with the rewriting of this fallacious, empty story. It’s an insult to our intelligence—-To what end? We all know Satan will again be symbolically slain by Michael, The Archangel —Let Michael appear in the form of Xander. LOL. Something’s gotta give because… Read more »

Hello Celia. Thanks so much for your reply and further expansion. I think your point about this not being “a continuous SYFY saga” is the salient one, and I agree that “the writers have gone too far with the rewriting of this fallacious, empty story.” Eric (as priest or whatever) is always a welcome return. Have a Great Holiday, Celia!

James…as always, you make PERFECT SENSE!!!!! Thank You for that. Now…a few thoughts of my own on this…

1. From long ago, Round 1 (or whatever) of The MarDevil was plenty enough for me.
2. Brother…AWESOME IDEA where Susan and Jan are concerned. But Susan annoys me A LOT MORE…LOTS MORE!!!!!
3. Oh…and if I wanna watch something about the devil (or whatever), I’ll re-watch the original 1976 horror classic Carrie…which has always been my ALL-TIME FAVORITE horror movie!!!!! YEAH!!!!!

Later, My Brother.

Okay, one more thing about Satan transforming Jan’s body into Belle’s: When Jan (as Belle) was trying to seduce Shawn, part of her repertoire was oral sex (not explicit to the viewer but clearly implied). Call me a prude if you wish, but simulated oral sex is a sleazy and lazy gimmick. It’s bad enough that this Satan storyline is going on far too long, but appealing to prurient interests is further degradation and embarrassment for this show. And don’t get me started on the logistics of that phone call between Shawn and who he thought was Rafe, with no… Read more »

I agree with everything everyone said. I can’t say how sick Iam of all this crap. My FF is getting a good workout.Also, what you called a lazy gimmick brought an “oh my” from this old lady and Iam definitely not a prude. I think both actors were a little embarrassed. I would have been, no matter what end I was on,

Violet Lemm, so glad to read your reply. And thank you for the backup. Maybe with the outrageousness of the whole Satan storyline, some aren’t bothered by such things. I just think it’s so trashy and demeans the actors involved as well as the show. Happy New Year, Friend!

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
