Whew! That is good news for the legions and legions of James Scott fans and a relief to the series who has just rebooted the show with a big promotional blitz.  We will keep you updated on the situation as news warrants.

Did the show win an Emmy with that combination of actors lately?? Heck no!! James Scott is my favorite and he makes the show in my opinion!!

Oh boy, will they be in trouble if they let James Scott go!! The re-boot is as sodden and leaden as anything I’ve seen on TV in a while, except for the energy emanating from James and Lauren Koslow.
What in the world are TPTB thinking? If James goes, I go. It will mean another found hour in my day.

If James Scott leave Days…I go too. He makes watching the show a joy. The best actor on the show. He is the reason I watch the show and his fan base is so large, Days will lose a lot of fans and it doesn’t matter who they bring back…

The DAYS reboot surely will finds its way. I am giving DAYS a shot because of all the promises to focus on solid storytelling and truth to characters and histories. I will need some time to get acquainted. I like James Scott and hope he remains on the canvas.

James is the reason I watch Days again. I can’t believe they’d let someone this popular go. Days hasn’t even gotten their reboot up and running yet. Why would they ditch this guy? Are they crazy, or don’t they know how to do business?

James Scott as EJ Dimera is what has kept me watching Days for as long as I have. If he leaves I will no longer watch. And I have been talking to lots of people who feel the same way. Days please dont let him leave!

James Scott is the best thing about Days of Our Lives, His acting reaches a depth not associated with this type of show. If he were to leave, many would stop watching the show.

If Y&R wanted James they would already have him

Hope he stays. I’m sorry but he’s the only Days actor getting Emmy nominations these days. I like EJ, he shouldn’t be all bad nor all good. Should be a villian we love to hate. Running for mayor should be interesting.

I hope he gets the contract worked out, I love James Scott as EJ. With JKJ (Philip) gone I doubt I would continue watching Days if James left too.

I don’t see any good news until James has signed a new contract with Days. He is a huge asset to the show and beloved by many viewers. I hope Days sees the error of their ways and re-signs this very talented actor immediately.

James Scott is the best and for me makes the show. I think they should show more of him rather than consider not renewing his contract. I wont watch DOOL any more if the take him off the show!!!

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
