Fantastic news this afternoon out of Salem! Soap Opera Digest is reporting that James Scott (EJ Dimera) has reached a deal with the powers-that-be at Days of our Lives and has signed a new deal to stay with the show for another year till April 2013!

This should come as great news to James’s fans who were concerned that the popular actor might decide to bolt, when for many, he is one of the main reasons they tune-in to DAYS. We are glad to hear that Salem will have mayoral candidate, EJ Dimera and James along for some time to come!

I don’t like EJ. At all. But his leaving would have derailed the new writers’ plans. I think James will leave for good in April 2013, and he should—EJ is a terrible character and has overstayed his welcome. It sickens me that THIS is what happened to Susan Banks’ son. 🙁

Fantastic news!!! James Scott is the reason I started watching Days again in 2007 after a 10 year break from the show!!! James has taken material written for EJ that would have desroyed the character had he been portrayed by a lesser actor. James is special and I hope tptb at DOOL, NBC and Sony realize just how much and make sure EJ gets a well written and compelling story. TEAM EJAMES!!!!!! 🙂

He is the reason I tune in. James’ performances made these past two years worth watching. He is a talented actor, a handsome man, and a true gentleman. I’m so glad Days realized his value. They didn’t need to lose one of their most popular actors when they are struggling to address the shambles the last creative team left the show in.

I am so happy to hear this news. I just hope the contract is a good one for James. The new writers will now get a chance to show how EJ could be written well. That would be a pleasant change.

This is great news!

James Scott is an outstanding actor and an important asset at Days. He has been one of the few consistently excellent performers through some of the worst writing and nonsensical storylines I’ve ever seen on this show. Also, he has turned a character who was probably intended to be a one-dimensional villain into a multi-dimensional character of great depth who evokes a range of emotions in the viewer and always engages us in EJ’s story. It is clear that James never rests on his laurels and that, as the consumate professional that he is, works very hard to constantly improve himself as an actor and provide us, the viewers, with a glimpse at yet another aspect of EJ’s character. Now that is compelling, character-driven television.

I am pleased that TPTB at Days realize that James portrayal of EJ is such an asset to the show and that James has so many fans who tune in to Days in whole or in part because he brings something to the show that no one else can. I’m looking forward to exciting, compelling, and original storylines for James to bring us more of this great character in the future.

Thank you.

I am so happy James is stay at Days. He’s one of the best they have and an very talented actor. I’m looking forward to more EJ and James on Days. Now, I want good storytelling and good writing for James. James is my reason for watching Days!!

It’s too bad. I was so hoping he would finally be let go. Since this show started revolving around EJ it has been awful, and driven hundreds of thousands of viewers away. If he must stay, I hope he will be seriously backburner-ed and used minimally. I stopped watching the show when I could no longer stand him being on EVERY SINGLE DAY. I was hoping to come back to the show for the re-set, but if the new writers continue to overuse this overrated actor and TERRIBLE character, I won’t be able to come back completely, even for my returning favorites.

The show was bad for reasons other than James Scott. Sara Bibel credited him with saving the show. And his two nominations for Best Actor contradict your assessment of his acting ability. I doubt the show will miss your lack of viewership.

Fantastic news! Hoping the new writers can bring this character back to what it should be so that a wonderful EJ and Sami romance can be written.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
