Last Thursday, on the 40th anniversary of Days of our Lives‘ James Reynolds debut as Abe Carver, the long-running NBC soap took some time out from production to mark the milestone with an on set celebration attended by several cast members, creatives, and crew.

Taking part in the celebration wereL DAYS EP Ken Corday, Bill Hayes (Doug), Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie), Mary Beth Evans (Kayla), Stephen Nichols (Steve), Sal Stowers (Lani), Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) , Josh Taylor (Roman), Thaao Penghlis (Tony), Marci Miller (Abigail), Lindsay Arnold (Allie), Greg Rikaart (Leo), Victoria Konefal (Ciara), and Robert Wilson (Ben).

 

With speeches and love all around, James was saluted by the show for his enduring performance as Abe.  Last Monday, a special episode was crafted in his honor, which saw Abe go to the light and being visited by his beloved late wife, Lexie in a series of scenes and flashbacks.  It was another touching performance by Reynolds, in which we also applaud him with Michael Fairman TV’s Power Performance of the Week honors (more on that in an upcoming post).

During his daytime career, Jim took home the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series in 2018 for his portrayal, and remains the longest-running black actor in a continuing role on television.

Check out some of the moments from Jim’s celebration below in our photo gallery.

Great milestone! But my eyes went directly to Greg Rikaart and Emily O’Brien together. It looks like the reunion of this former Y&R couple is in the works, as I had hoped. Yay!

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”.

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.

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.
