Former General Hospital star, Jen Lilley (Ex-Maxie) finally made her on-screen debut this week on Days of our Lives as bad girl Theresa!  But who is she really?  Who might she be related to in Salem?  So many questions!

Lilley’s first scene was where Theresa happens upon bad boy JJ (Casey Moss) who is now become daytime’s hottest drug peddler! Next, the two have a sexually charged innuendo filled exchange!  Theresa tells JJ, who has invited her back to the Horton house to hit the sheets ,   “Not my thing …  robbing the cradle.  You see, I think our age difference here, well, it could get in the way.”

Later, Theresa and JJ are confronted by Jennifer, who is not to happy about what her son is up to these days, and that is putting it mildly!

So, what are your first impressions of Jen Lilley in her new role? Looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds? Will she and JJ terrorize the town of Salem?  Watch her first scenes with Casey Moss after the jump in this DAYS video recap, and then comment below!

Very glad to see Jen is back on a soap. She was robbed of an Emmy nomination for her work on GH last year!

I did NOT realize it was Jen! I was going crazy, thinking I know that voice, who is that girl? I love her & really all of DAYS right now.

Jen Lilly is going to throw her web.

it was her voice.. that caught me first… and I was grateful that she was unrecognized.

Her luminescent eyes and recognition factor held me back. She made a splash on DAYS. you know… I’ve been somewhat dissapointed in Abby’s acting of late… but.. it’s written script that awaits….

Jenn Lilly, was an interesting take and read on the happenings of her beginnings, in GH. What caught my attention and rapture…. of GH.

So. after the fact. of Will, Chad, and Gabbi… I read, that it’s ALL Good… with current regime and new talent.

Ummhh…. if… god no… I hope it’s Pastsy Pease = “Kimerly’s daughter”: to future talent and relevance DAYS… Kimberly, showing up in Salem every now and then… albeit Bo… she’s wonderful and lovely to be.

Jenn Lilly and Chrishell Stause made the critics list and choice.

I think/hope she is Kristin‘s daughter. Kristin needs someone to love, who could anchor and ground her a little. She needs to have a redeeming quality, and nothing does that like the love of a child. I just hope that Kristin isn‘t pregnant now, setting up a Brady vs. Eric father debate. This woman is old enough to be their mother!! It‘s time to let Nicole finally have a happy healthy baby. I hope SHE is pregnant with Brady‘s baby.

Would LOVE for Nicole to end up with a living, healthy baby of her very own. I don’t care who the father is! She has become one of my very favorites.

It appears to be a good departure for Jen Lilley. She is defintely going to bring trouble — a younger Kristen – perchance?

Kudos to DAYS for keeping her family connections a secret, too. I think it is generating a lot of interest. Like the chemistry with Casey Moss and Jen Lilley.

A good start!

I didn’t realize that the character was Jen ,that’s how good she is. I can’t wait to see the trouble she brings to Salem.Lo’s of luck for doing an excellent job.

She’s great! I just wish she was Jeannie Donovan!

I got the vibe she was an undercover cop the way she keeps wanting to know about JJ’s stash. So it could be feasible, if she were Shane’s daughter, she would use another name, so people on the force would not know she was the daughter of ISA agent and the niece of the Commissioner. Perhaps that is just wishful thinking, but fingers cross- she will be Jeannie Donovan.

That would be great! She is too talented to be wasted on a newbie or invented relative of someone! 😉

I’m also throwing my hat in for the character to be revealed as Jeannie Donovan. Especially with recent buzz about Patsy Pease possibly coming back as Jeannie’s mother Kim Brady.

Never understood why the big hype for her. I thought she did an OK job while Kirsten Storms was on leave. THe jury is still out on new character.

Lois

I do not see much positive interesting or much of a performance from her, so the jury is not still out for me! Chrishell Stause might be good, though. So when and if I start watching all the time again I will look for her.

Please excuse me for asking a dumb question, but I’ve never watched DAYS OF OUR LIVES – can someone just tell me what time it is on and what Network – I am on the West coast. I was always more of an “all my children” fan but now I watch that On line but I would like to tape Days of our Lives and watch it at night the same way I used to tape AMC – looks like a good show.

Chloe

It’s on NBC. I’m not sure what time, since I’m on the East Coast but check at 1PM. You can also go to a site like TVGuide.com, plug in your zip code and they’ll tell you.

I started watching DAYS after ABC took off my beloved soap OLTL and AMC ,I aways watched ABC soaps.I sTill watch GH,but wanted another one to watch so I tune in to see Eric and Nicole and was hooked and I always like Sami and EJ….SO YEP days is becoming my relax late at night, everyone in bed, stay up late watching by myself soap.hahahahaah.use to be my OLTL…BUT YOU GOTTA DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO.

She’s beautiful and talented. I’ve enjoyed the little I have seen of her so far.

AMEN

Patrick

LOL.

Halt you two.

with the “demise” of Will, Chad, Gabbi…

I’m relishing the introduction of Jenn Lilly and Charisse etc… for the better of DOOL.

I have to.

These two ladies… reel… intrigue… and have their own presence. Hey, can you not agree… that for newbies… they are not bad at all… they rose to the occasion.

you know… if you step outside the box… and let go of the J.J. intro… “I hate Daniel” another tired… come between Daniel and Jenn…. you’d notice that JJ… does have some muster. he’s good with Jenn and Abigail… and hopefully.. chops his own addition to the cast. I think he can…

I have to helm… just how good Blake Berris is… and w/Vargas to boot. Nick is now the one that sparks… what triggers what DAYS should be.

i’m jumping ahead of myself… course.. if you read Corday’s interview… they are not going to recast Will…. so.. where, does that leave Sonny? I hope they bring on Brian… and this would leave you wondering… ie: is Will and Gabbi w/Arianna Grace… leaving Salem?

geez! sad… but… this is the state of affairs with…. the comings and goings of soap.

As for the Kristen machinations… and I reel soaps…. serials… not true to life… there’s so much mystique… intrigue… going on right now… with Eric… coming to life.. and out of the malaise… that… the cloak can seem. and he’s active and alive with all his senses. that… this is further puzzle for Eric and Nicole.. and not necessarily Kristen’s agenda. Dag! Eric is sexy… he’s William Holden’ing it for me big. swoon sexy smoldering – he’s back where he should be.. think how sexy he was on GH.

All the characters in Salem are triggering…

Rod

I don’t dislike JJ but if Jen Lilly is in his scenes 99% I’m FF can’t stand her as the person I met or the actress she try’s to be. Lived your entire synopsis though Patrick that was great!!!!

Elizabeth Pace
Elizabeth Pace

I sincerely doubt you’ve met Jen Lilley if you don’t like her. Jen is the sweetest, most sincere, approachable, and down to earth actress ever. She’s kind to everyone, funny, and lives for helping others. I’ve met her. She’s open to her fans, she loves those who hate her, and she is nothing if not positive and selfless. She gives everyone she meets a hug. You couldn’t have met her. Maybe you’re confused. Or you’re just evil.

Rod
Rod

I don’t get it sorry folks. She really does nothing for me! Her acting isn’t all that great!! She wasn’t robbed of any Emmy LOL!!

ces

ditto AND she looked like a clown when she played Maxie on GH, guess that was to mask her poor acting skills.

Linda

Could Theresa be an undercover narcotics cop?

Mary SF
Mary SF

Well, that is the impression I got watching those scenes—so I wouldn’t be surprise if she was.

ces

Well, considering I fast-forward through Jen/Daniel/JJ/Abigail/Chad – I have no impression of her because I won’t watch this crap storyline.

I do NOT like that Sly Stallone looking punk JJ on my screen. He’s a complete ass and I don’t even think he’s appealing to look at it.

This whole storyline is ruining otherwise decent ones for me but luckily when they are on, I can get through the show much faster!

Chloe
Chloe

I don’t like Theresa at all. Unless she turns out to be undercover and not the bad girl that she’s being advertised as, then as far as I’m concerned, we can show her the door. When she put her feet on the coffee table and then had to nerve to get snippy with Jenn “you tell me who you are first”, I wanted to smack her.

And why in the world did they hire two people who look so much alike [and have the same hairstyle] – I didn’t even realize at first that she wasn’t Bev [one of JJ’s fellow criminals]?

jordin

I dont like her either. So annoying

Cindy

Loved her on GH and she’s even better on DOOL. Go Jen!!

so far so good…hope shes Jeanie Donavon too…or the long lost daughter of Kristen and John.

Maggie

I liked her. She seemed natural and she’s a good actress. Looking forward to all the havoc she’ll cause Jen.

mike

This role seems to fit more than “Maxie”. She and JJ are the most watchable part of the show right now.

Tori
Tori

I also wonder if she is going to turn out to be connected to one of the major families. The way DOOL kept her role a secret makes me think there is more to her character which I think she is doing a great job.

Chaz

Although my first suspicion was that she was undercover, after reading about the character I don’t think so. From the interview with Ken Corday, ” Oh, she is going to be nasty as she can be. And it’s just wonderful! Jen is so gorgeous, and she has that energy … that “it” factor that compels you to watch her even though you know she is just a snarky little gossip.”

I enjoyed what I saw of her so far. VERY different from her portrayal of Maxie. (I have to admit I do not like the character of Maxie played either by Jen or Kirsten Storms). I think she will be a good addition. Especially with so many of the younger characters set to exit.

bonnie

Shes great so happy for her . Shes just a example of how GH is losing talent to keep favs of the producer the OLTL crew needs to go . Jen Lilly ,now Kelly Sullivan ,Steve the list is to many . Happy for her sad my soap GH lost her.

Patrick
Patrick

whether she’s a Donovan… or Kristen and John’s long lost Love child… and if she’s either or… she naturally introduced herself to Salem… and oozed sexuality… with JJ… and he probably needs that to loosen up and let go of Daniel and Jenn.

the drug bit.. is storyline… and it’s not like we’ve actually seen him lighting up …

i think he’s inhibited… with the loss of his father… and being monitored by Mum… and having to live up to his family and living at home again.. after so long at boarding school. he’s finding his way… and LOL… if Jenn Lilly soars with … then… I hope he has the acting chops to go with.

he has a tenderness that needs an outlet.

Derek
Derek

I think she’s Anne’s daughter. Mark my words.

Patrick

Anne, is a no holds barred actor.

and she’s been a god-send with the “all-that” Daniel and Jenn debacle.

Anne and Maxine bring so much humor and respite… including Maxine’s tender hearted being.

Anne makes me laugh…. even when she must know she’s in the “wrong”… her not letting up on the oft haggie maggied out Jenn…. lightens the load we’ve bore cumbersome….

Patrick
Patrick

Patsy Pease and Mary Beth Evans better get together… perhaps they’ll bring up Bo?

“remember how good” the original Roman was… Wayne Northrop.

Cathy
Cathy

I anxiously awaited for Jen Lilley to appear on Days! I loved her as Maxie on GH and am so enjoying Jen as a sassy and devious! I’ve never watched Days but i am becoming a fan thanks to Jen. She’s a hometown girl of whom we are so proud!!

Patrick
Patrick

I hope…. she’s Kristen’s hidden love child… with John…. for soap relevance… and righting Kristen…. to further cement Kristen in Salem. This would go a long way in giving Kristen “distraction” ?.

They’ve certainly “shown” Kristen… realizing she can fall in Love. and get over John? well… this love child would further embroil these two… for the rest of their lives in Salem.

LOL… I actually am still smitten at the idea that John and Kristen can find some thing between them.

Patrick
Patrick

what better way for Kristen to have the last laugh some…. that Marlena can stew for the rest of her life…. An in your face reality that John and Kristen have a child.

Hope not. Hope she is a one note irrelevant newbie. From korday looks like I an right.

Drew

She is a super talented actress. I look forward to seeing her role expanded

I wonder if Jen Lilley is really Cassie Brady playing an undercover cop?

S

Also Roman was just talking to Jennifer beofre she saw Jen Lilley. So maybe Roman was letting her know that she is underover and not to blow her cover because just maybe she is really Cassie Brady and she is going to bust JJ for the drugs.

I never thought I’d say these words but DAYS is by far the best soap on television. Eileen Davidson is the best thing that has happened to this show in generations. I tune in every day to see what evil she will do next. She’s much scarier than her adoptive father Stephano. JJ is mesmerizing as the bad seed. Jen Lilley has intrigued me too. I wonder who she is. Great job DAYS!

dmrjmd

I absolutely agree, Jared! I love Eileen Davidson; she is the reason I tuned back into Days! The more Kristen, the better!

dmrjmd

I, myself am tired of “JJ,” so, I am really not invested in this storyline. I am hoping that Theresa is an undercover Narcotics agent and arrests JJ and sends him away for good. This storyline makes Jennifer look like an idiot. How can we be invested in Daniel and Jennifer when there is always someone trying to meddle in their relationship. Daniel needs someone who is exciting. Perhaps when Jordan arrives in Salem, she will be linked to Daniel somehow. Just hoping it is not Rafe. Not a Rafe fan at all. Have liked not having to hear or see him. So arrogant.

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!

Courtesy/NBC

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.
