The highly-anticipated arrival of Daytime Emmy winner Jordi Vilasuso to the Salem scene is upon us.  Circle next Friday, February 19th as Jordi’s first airshow on Days of our Lives.

Vilasuso, who previously played Griffin Castillo on All My Children and Tony Santos on Guiding Light, returns to daytime in the role of Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi’s  (Camila Banus) brother, Dario Hernandez.  The role was played once before back in 2011 by Francisco San Martin, but the character has not been seen for years.   Enter Jordi!

In the latest issues of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Vilasuso previews his new role relating what happened when he spoke with DAYS EP Ken Corday, Co-EP Albert Alaar, and head writer Josh Griffith: ” They talked to me about Dario and the one thing I responded to most was that he was very intelligent. Dario is also very passionate and outspoken. He has a short fuse.  I was so ready and wanting to play this guy.”   For more on Jordi’s new role make sure to check out SOD!

So, who would you like to see Dario romantically involved with on DAYS? Are you looking forward to Jordi’s DAYS debut? Do you think the character will tow the line between good and bad?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

heck! for very good reason…. why not let the feisty Anne Milbauer… be a step-sister to Adriana

The characters name was mistakenly reported as Bianca, but is actually Blanca, Patrick. I don’t know her connection, but I’m intrigued!

Well, he did well on ALL MY CHILDREN although I don’t clearly remember his storyline right now.
It’s nice that DAYS OF OUR LIVES is bringing familiar faces to the scene, but it seems like they already have many characters who don’t seem to be doing much of anything to speak of.

Glad to see him return to daytime TV. He has gotten even more handsome since last time I saw him!

I don’t remember the Dario character but I hope this guy develops an interest in Lani. I’m bummed that she’s not getting any screen time because she’s a good actress, unlike some of the actors/actresses that are on 5 days a week.

great idea, about Lani.

speaking of extending families… ie: the Hernandez fam

I remember reading a rumor early last summer that Dario was going to be Paul’s new love interest. That might be interesting.

I think that Jordi Vilasuso is ONE SMOKING H-O-T DUDE!!!!!!!!!! Oh…and as far as I’m concerned, soap-wise, short fuse=BAD, BAD, BAD BOY!!!!!!!!!! Y-U-M!!!!!!!!!!!

Not real sure about this casting. jordi seems about 15 years too old for this part. However. Besides that…So…the show is killing off Horton’s and Brady’s left, right, and centre..and expanding the Hernandez clan like gangbusters. I don’t get it. At all. Another thing, why have all the major MexicanSpanish/Hispanic families portrayed on soaps been headed by a disappearng, absentee father figure who shows up 20-40 years later and has to make amends? And how many times will Galen Gering have to play the same story in his soap career? Santa Barbara, that beloved botched soap of mine, started it.… Read more »

Dylan,

I get and agree with what you’re saying here. I mean…as much as I like Jordi Vilasuso as an actor and everything, I don’t understand as to why THE RUSH in bringing in all of these Hernandez family members so quickly??? Also, I’m still getting used to A. Martinez and his Eduardo character. And…I can only handle watching the character of Rafe in small doses. All in all, weird. Totally weird.

Later.

Although he is adorable, I agree he is too old to play Dario..Dario was younger than Rafe , now he looks to be the same age if not older. Are they going to have him with Paul because when he left he was all over Melanie?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
