Im just happy that they are bringing someone in tied to the Bradys and hopefully this means more airtime for the wonderful but underused Mary Beth Evans…his description however sounds like JJ when he returned to Salem…hope its not a recycled storyline!!!

Mary Beth Evans is filming as a contract player and so glad for her.

Not interested in watching that outdated “vision” of Days that obviously includes throwing the most epic storyline (WilSon/PaulSon) under the bus.Higley almost killed Days last time around, and from what I’m hearing, she hasn’t learned a thing. She and Griffith are totally ignoring the kind of mix of characters and storylines that gave Days the best ratings in many years (2013 till beginning of 2014). My watching Days ends the day they sideline Sonny, Paul and Will!!!

And forget about it, Higfith will never introduce a new gay character, they’re destroying the gay storline that was the most successful storyline on the show and got them 4 Emmys in 3 years and ratings highs whenever these characters were front and center (even this year, with overall bad ratings, the best ratings days and weeks happened with Sonny and Paul being front and center). But these people don’t care about what viewers and fans want, otherwise they wouldn’t spend all the money on vets that never brought ratings up in the last couple of years.

For some reason, he reminds me of Tony Dow from Leave It To Beaver in this snap. X

Yes, Yes. He looks so familiar, I couldn’t put my finger on it. He also has the look of Corey Haim.

Hope he is a good actor or we will have to call him Corey Ham…lol

Wow. I was thinking he looked like a young River Phoenix–not seeing Corey Haim or Tony Dow at all.
I also see a dash of a young Leonardo Decaprio.

You’re right. He does look like Tony Dow back in the day. I wonder how many people who read this will have any idea what we’re talking about?

Interesting, since there are no teenagers in Salem, so it means the kids on the show will be teenagers by the summer..Good move..This shows needs diversity..Theo and Hope’s bratty daughter will be aged up.

I don’t think it’s possible for me to be more excited about the reunion of the Johnson family, Joey, Kayla and Patch, by late summer. I only wish it would start to air sooner than that.

It’s also great that Patch’s sister Adrienne has a storyline involving Lucas and Justin who is back full time! I’m hoping Patch and Adrienne’s brother Jack comes back!!! Exciting DAYS ahead!!!!!

Why do soaps write all teens as surly, hostile, nasty mini adults?? I was a teenager and the most important things on our minds were not our parents love lives or troubles. We were concerned about dances and exams and friends and girlfriends and parties. Just as no parent should be THAT wrapped up in their child’s love life…Eve are you listening??…no kids are that wrapped up in their parents’ drama. I hope this Joey is not just a rerun of JJ. Rory is a god example of how real teens act. That kid has a natural charm and charisma… Read more »

I agree, T is a fantastic character, and the actor is so great too, same with Rory, great character & actor. Wish they both had more air-time.

The word out is that Joey is a troubled teen, similar to how JJ was a troubled teen when JJ first returned to Salem from boarding school. I was surprised to hear that the writers went that route with the Joey story so soon after JJ. That seems like overkill on the troubled teen scenario. That sounds like what they did with all those unnecessary cat fights. Not looking forward to the troubled teen Joey story….Been there done that. I hope they can change course quickly on that and come up with something else for Joey. That said, I am… Read more »

I hope DAYS can write good story, as Days has not had a good teen scene since the Shawn/Belle/Philip/Chloe story arc. Those were the DAYS!!! The character of Paige is god-awful, and JJ is so-so.

I’m glad they’re bringing on the next generation of legacy characters. But gee-wiz! must all the teens have a chip on their shoulder when they premiere? That’s not the only kind of teen there is.

Me and my friends have been watching DAYS for WilSon and PaulSon since 2011, and we’re not interested in the crap these “new” head writers are obviously coming up with. They have been ignoring this fanbase since they were hired, not a single mention of Sonny, Paul, Will and this multi-Emmy winning storyline so far! And very obviously, neither has there been a recast for Sonny nor has Christopher (Paul) been seen on set in many weeks, so they’re literally excluding this storyline and fanbase that was a HUGE part of Days’s success (see multi-year ratings highs 2013 till early… Read more »

it looks like “Joey” wears hearing aids. (I am a HIS) just wondering if that was true only because of his speach. He is a cutie.

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”

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 we 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.
