It’s A Wrap For DAYS Arianne Zucker!

Wednesday marked longtime Days of our Lives star, Arianne Zucker’s (Nicole) final tape day on the set of the NBC soap opera.  Zucker had previously announced she decided to step away from DAYS after 18 years with the series.

Due to DAYS taping schedule being six months ahead, viewers can anticipate more Nicole drama all the way through the fall.

For her farewell, Zucker posted a photo via social media featuring some Hawaiian leis around her neck and those of her co-stars Alison Sweeney (Sami), Chandler Massey (Will) and Galen Gering (Rafe), expressing, “Aloha! Last day at work! Making it colorful!”

Just how the series will write-out the character of Nicole to facilitate Arianne’s exit is still unknown, although long time fans of the character and the actress hope her exit brings with it emotional story.

So, sad to know Arianne has finished her time at DAYS?  How do you think she will exit the canvas? Comment below.

Nicole, being so heartbroken over losing the baby, needs some alone-time away from Salem, saying “au revoir” and not good bye; leaving the door open.
As an alternative, (this is far-reaching), maybe, Khloe will give Nicole “custody” of Holly, with the condition that Khloe will be part of their lives. So, all three leave together?

Chloe has never wanted Nicole to have Daniel’s baby from the beginning. That is why she will never custody to Nicole.

No matter how they write Nicole’s exit, it’s still going to be tough to see her gone. We watched this lady be everything a character on daytime could hope to be. We saw her be bitchy, sneaky, conniving, and vengeful. We also got to see a caring, loving, and giving lady. We hated her and we loved her. She made us yell at our TV screens but she also had us praying to God that she would get out of any danger she was in. I am glad i took this journey with Nicole. I will be one who is… Read more »

I, too, will miss the actress; she gave real depth to the character of Nicole in the last few years–and she came across as a believable character. Kudos–and aloha!

So so sad It is like losing a member of your family. I wish her all the happiness in the world even though there is a hole in my heart. Thank you for being such a great actress Arianne and giving us a character that we got to be angry with ,cried with ,laugh with ,and grew with. It was a blessing to all of us who watched days faithfully. We can watch movies any time but soaps is so much more. It is part of our lives every day. Movies come and go and other sitcoms but soaps are… Read more »

To put it simply…DAYS blew it! The character of Nicole should have been the leading lady of the show! Her range as an actress is amazing and she could really make you feel! She had off the charts chemistry with several of her leading men…yet they kept saddling her with older men with whom there was no chemistry (Daniel, Deimos) and the storylines were really bad! In my mind…Mizz Nicole is sipping on a martini somewhere, happy and in love with a man who APPRECIATES her…and loves her for her!

I agree. I think Arianne is a great actress who is able to express a great range of emotions. Unfortunately, we were subjected to Alison Sweeney being the leading lady for many years, and in my opinion, she lacked the charisma and range. I haven’t watched the show in months, since the teen scene exploded. I will only tune-in again when Eileen Davidson returns for her upcoming arc.

I guess this means poor Brady is going to lose another love— I know stable relationships don’t work on soaps, but this guy cannot catch a break– I like the character of Nicole, but I like the bad girl version of her rather than St. Nic version we have been getting since her days with Daniel. I am so grateful Days has never tampered with Kate– she is one bad girl who embraces her dark side so well.

Celia

Yes, Mary. I looove Kate, even with all her flaws and “dastardly” deeds. I love her style and couture. Everything she foes is executed with panache and gusto….good or bad. She’s the purrfect feline.
And, she’s a hoot, to boot. Ha!

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.

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.
