Days of our Lives - What to Watch For

How Do Your Favorite Soaps Ring In The New Year? (Previews)

Courtesy/CBS

When the clock strikes on 2020, where will the characters of Salem, Port Charles, Los Angeles and Genoa City be in their lives? Who might they share a New Year’s Eve kiss with? What plans and resolutions do they have to make the new year better and badder than ever before?

On General Hospital, the highly-anticipated wedding of Nina and Valentin takes center stage. Will Nina go through with her plan for revenge now that she is armed with the truth of Valentin’s misdeeds? And… be on the lookout for another major surprise at the nuptials.

On The Young and the Restless, is the beginning of 2020 finally going to bring Adam and Chelsea back together and into each others arms? And, now that Billy is spiraling downward again; will his relationship with Victoria go completely south in favor of one with Amanda?

On Days of our Lives, “Stevano” reveals himself on New Year’s Eve, what will Kayla and Justin do next?  Will anyone find out what has happened to their beloved Steve? Meanwhile, Kristen’s days at the nunnery are over!  Look for her to fight for her man, Brady Black.

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas has lured Zoe into his web, and even his sister, Steffy.  Will 2020 find Steffy and Liam back together again … and if so, will they remain so?  Will Hope fall for Thomas even after all the horrible acts he perpetrated on her in 2019?  And, what will happen to Brooke and Ridge; can they become a united loving couple once again?

Each of the four network soaps have released their New Year’s promo for the action next week.  You can check them out below.

Let us know what you are looking forward to seeing most in 2020 with your favorite soap couple and characters via the comment section below.

I don’t get Billy. Victoria is doing nothing but loving him. Why throw that and her away? He’s being a self centered jerk for no reason other than he feels like it.

Totally agree Molly. Billy is a man-child and it’s getting very tiring. He screws up and when it hits the fan for the millionth time, he tries to convince everyone that he realizes the error of his ways and expects them to forgive him. Victoria should move on, because he will never change. The character is damaged. Thompson and Heinle have so much chemistry and it’s ashame the writers aren’t doing more with it.

I agree with you Molly. I don’t know what the heck he is doing. And I don’t think he does either. Victoria can run a multi-million dollar company on her own, but she is totally blind when it comes to her home life. I really wish and hope they start showing more of the Baldwins. I am so sick of the same old faces and the same stories. I am sick and tired of listening to Chelsea whine about Connor to anyone who will listen. She will be in bed with Adam in due time, Nick and Phyllis will start… Read more »

My wishes for the soap new year: 1. May Y&R writers stop giving 1/3 of each episode to those awful Connor/Adam/Chelsea scenes that are terribly written and just excruciating to watch. They spent half of the xmas episode on a whining 6-year-old and a stray cat in a box. Let’s hope this is rock-bottom. 2. May Y&R writers come up with some storyline ideas that haven’t been done to death already but don’t involve rewriting history to produce new one-note characters (hello Theo). May the show become watchable again in 2020. Hint: More Mariah and Amanda (sans Billy), less brooding… Read more »

NuAdam creeps me out. Chelsea has zero chemistry with anyone on the show. NuNina is growing on me. I love Valentin. Wish he would off the Parking Lot FLOP.

Billy’s a jerk off. Jason T is a good actor but this story doesn’t make sense and he looks like a horses ass. I hope it’s his alter otherwise he shouldn’t be forgiven. Victoria is a good person who is loving and kind to him too. Shadam have better chemistry than Chadam. And Billy and Amanda are flipping awful and have no chemistry no matter how hard they are trying to shove it down our throats.

Screw Billy. What an ass. Why can’t Billy and Victoria be happy for more than five minutes. This Amanda thing is so gross. All of Y&R is a mess and Josh Griffith is a sucky writer.

I agree, Kelsey. The show is a mess, turning likeable people into contemptible ones (Billy, for example). And don’t get me started on the Theo debacle. Glad Kevin and Chloe are back, but it looks like they’re turning them into dullards as well.

Billy/Amanda is nasty. Jason and Mishael have no chemistry.

I love Mishael Morgan but zero chemistry. They are disgusting and Billy is horrible now to watch with his depression and inner voice.

Why in Hell’s name is GH running an old episode today? When you are running 3 or 4 episodes behind, due to ImOrangement and/or other news interruptions, there should be an immediate decision made to scrap the Helliday rerun episodes, and replace them with a new show.

At this rate, they will be celebrating New Years Evil in Port Charles right around St. Patrick’s Day.

My wish for 2020 is that Gabi on DAYS is thoroughly publicly punished for what she did to Julie, Lani and Eli. I want to see everything taken away from Gabi. I want to see Gabi have to publicly beg Julie and Lani not to have her sent back to prison for years.

Anne,
Amen, and Happy New Year! My wishes exactly. She’s been getting away with way too much, too often.When does she supposedly see her daughter? If she’s not making trouble, she’s screwing Eli. Oh, I can’t wait for him to find out what she’s done to his grandma.

My take on the soaps as a viewer not that my opinion means anything but here goes!! Bold and the Beautiful the Hope Show. Young and the Restless the Chelsea show. General Hospital back to the insane four Sonny Carly Jason and Sam show. Days of Our Lives no comment I have not watched in years . Here is hoping 2020 makes some constructive changes ! I feel very sad for the vets who helped make it #1 and if you are as frustrated as we are we all out here understand !

Young and the Restless had no where to go but down and I believe Sony wants it gone if not why have they not made changes positive ones to stop the bleeding of viewers

Kay, You are right. I am so sick of every SL, especially what they have done to poor Conner. They better not turn the kid into a little psycho. I thought they might have him kill the poor kitten and claim that the voices or whatever told him to do it. That would be the end for me. The whole show is a mess as it is and quickly getting worse, i.e Billy and Amanda, Lola and Theo getting together, Phyllis throwing herself at anything in pants,especially Chance, who is way younger anyway. Sharon supposedly getting very sick. I repeat,… Read more »

In 2020 I would like to see a POST COMMENT TOPIC where viewers can provide storylines for their favorite show (i.e. Y and R.) Perhaps the writers might get some inspiration from longtime viewers who have sound suggestions for plots for specific characters. As many fans have voiced here for quite awhile, our must-watch shows are quickly becoming must-miss viewing.

Heather Lindell and a Host of Others Return to Days of our Lives

Kicking off the fall, Days of our Lives has released their latest promo heralding the upcoming returns and more current returns to the NBC daytime drama series that should have fans excited.

Back to cause trouble is none other than Heather Lindell, who was the best part of the DOOL app’s, Last Blast Reunion series when she caused havoc for the “Last Blast Crew” with Jan Spears kind of crazy.  That means that Heather Lindell will be back on the airshows and Jan back in Salem.

Then, next week look for the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera; a part she was nominated twice for her work in the Outstanding Lead Actress category at the Daytime Emmys.

Next, Tripp returns when Lucas Adams reprises the role of the son of Ava Vitali and Steve “Patch” Johnson; what will bring him back to Salem? Meanwhile, Stacy Haiduk and Eric Martsolf are back as Kristen and Brady, as are Jay Johnson and Nadia Bjorlin as Phillip and Chloe.

In a surprise, Casey Moss looks to be back on DAYS as well, reprising his role as JJ, as are Belle and Shawn played by Martha Madison and Brandon Beemer

At the top of the promo are Alison Sweeney as Sami and Camila Banus as Gabi; both actresses will be back at DAYS after finishing up their last runs.

The daytime drama begins production again next week following a lengthy shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but having the luxury of episodes in the banked through mid-October.

So, who’s return are you looking forward to the most? Comment below, but first check out the NBC promo!

THIS WEEK: A Martinez Returns to Days of our Lives

One of the finest actors we know and who has ever graced the daytime screens, A Martinez is reprising his role as Eduardo Hernandez, the father to Gabi and Rafe, this week on the NBC long-running series, Days of our Lives.

Martinez is back to help usher off the canvas, Galen Gering (Rafe) and Camila Banus (Gabi), who before recent news wrapped up their run with this week of episodes, but over the last week and half, as viewers have read in the press, both Gering and Banus will now be returning to the show at some point in the fall, after the series returns to production on September 1st.

A told Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now) that he was thrilled to get the call to come back, but that when he didn’t originally know the storyline he would be in involved the exit of Banus and Gering.

Martinez shared: “I got the call from my agent, saying, ‘DAYS is interested in having you back to do this  little arc of a story’.  My first response was complete celebration.  And then when i found out what it was, I felt kind of lousy about it on a certain level. But this is the nature of the beast, especially at this point,”

The Daytime Emmy winner for his role as Cruz Castillo on Santa Barbara also added about playing Eduardo: “I think he’s a wonderful character, I love playing him, He is so rich and deep and so wounded.”

In an Instagram post on Sunday, heading into Eduardo’s re-emergence on DAYS on Monday’s episode which sets the stage for Gering and Banus’ exits, Martinez shared: “I’ve played more problematic fathers than Eddie Hernandez — but not by much. Tomorrow he returns to Salem to blow up the lives of two of his children, harder and colder about it than when last we saw him, on his way to prison. A couple of years ago, when we learned about his horrific, emotionally disfiguring childhood, we understood the way he got be the way he is, and for me, in the playing, it anchored my affection for him. But to witness him now, forever on the run from his demons and still endangering everyone he claims to care about, it’s hard to muster a lot of sympathy for the dude. And yet, I do… maybe because it’s my job. And I always savor the chance to hit the stage with these fearless, steadfast actors.”

Now the question becomes: after the exit of Gabi and Rafe, and when they eventually return, will Eduardo be back with them,making the Hernandez family a unit again?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below, and also let us know if you will be  glad to see A again this week on DAYS!
