Southern California and the Pacific Ocean are the backdrops which bring on to Days of our Lives both Marie Wilson as Summer. and Jordi Vilasuso as Dario Hernandez.

In the case of the latter, on Friday’s episode of the NBC daytime drama it is Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) storyline that acts as the centerpiece for bringing Dario back on the canvas, and in the form of daytime favorite, Jordi Vilasuso.

While Brady is obsessing over the woman he keeps dreaming about, and how it is tied to Daniel and his new heart, he walks in to a beachfront bar chatting it up with a bartender about this mystery woman, Summer.  The bartender says he hasn’t seen her, but maybe the main bartender has … enter Dario!  Brady is stunned and asks Dario, “What in the hell are you doing here?”  Dario explains that working at Titan Argentina and the corporate world wasn’t a good fit for him, and neither was living in Salem. Brady even questions Dario if his siblings, Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi (Camila Banus) even knows where he is at?   Next, Brady asks if Dario knows this mystery woman, Summer.

It turns out, Dario does know her, and he says she’ll be walking through the door of the bar at any minute.  Dario asks if this is a new romance, but Brady informs Dario he has his gal, Theresa (Jen Lilley) and their son, Tate back in Salem.  Dario warns Brady that Summer can be unpredictable and has spent some time in a psychiatric ward.  If he sees her, Brady’s asks Dario to give Summer a message that he’s looking for her.  Later, Brady returns to the beach and finally lays eyes on his mystery woman as she starts to walk fully clothed into the ocean  … in what looks to be an apparent suicide somehow involved with Summer?

What were your first impressions of Jordi Vilasuso’s Dario Hernandez?  How do you think he will be involved in this storyline? Will Dario end up running into Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who is also now in Los Angeles searching for Brady?  How will this all tie together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Good looking but anyone who mentions Melanie I have zero interest in.
Plus with the news of higley more Hernandez spells disaster as she has a tendency to cut our beloved characters for her new pets.
I am not amused. If she cuts Steve yet again, I will never watch Days again. Cancellation would be in order!
I personally had to quit the program for the years of over propping Daniel.

So his donated organs causes hallucinations. Not a scintilla of medical evidence to support this wrong headed storyline. I fear there are two elephants and only one has diamonds. Oh boy. Yeah.

CeeCee I’d never look in another MIRROR again talk about caustic intrepidation. .what was in that drug. .why am I saying I see dead people. .why am I suddenly seeing full on real scenes happening right at this moment. .why do I suddenly feel the need to run into the ocean after some random woman who will come between me and Theresa though viewers will say put him with Theresa. .because the writers say I might be dumb but in not stupid..talkin..lol

I will wait a little longer and see how this plays out…first Caroline sees images…Brady sees a mysterious woman in his dreams…next ex-priest turned alcoholic drunk driver Eric will see The Virgin Mary in Salem’s fake Brady Bunch-styled park and she will warn that all that gloom in doom in Salem will cause Days to stay in fourth place unless a Guiding Light lifts up the Dark Shadows over Salem faster than As The World Turns perhaps us Young(well, not me…lol) & Restless soap fans might finally get The Brighter Day(s) we (Ryan’s) Hope for…lol

I like Jordi from his All My Children days. I hope his coming to Days will finally give Rafe a story.

…not into swarthy types, myself. I do not find him sexy…hey, to each his/her own. Rafe, yes, albeit I want to smack him to Hades and back, right now. Lol.
WOW!!!! What a ‘coinquidink’, eh? Of all places, Brady finds Dario here? Golly Gee, the suspense is killing me. This is going to be another ‘chase the wind’ storyline. The Daniel/mystery woman link is stupid to me, regardless of its purpose.
I do not know….has it been proven that people who receive transplants pick up signals from their new heart? Or, as usual, some patient had a thought; put it out there, and it became fact? Bah….all sensationalism. I would not be so skeptical if Brady had received Daniel’s brain. If one wants to go along with that theory, ok…it would be much more logical and scientifically, perhaps, hold some truth…..I don’t care how many quacks out there say it is possible. Only through Devine providence would that happen…A miracle!!!! Just my opinion.

I don’t find him sexy either and never have.

The whole story is ridick.

HaHaHa, Jimmy. Too funny, but right on the mark. They both have air floating through their brain…no disrespect to the dead. Lol.

I thought Dario was supposed to be younger than Gabi? Even though Jordi is in his 30s, he look closer to Galen’s age. I’ll hold off judging Dario until we see where his story heads but this show is an absolute train wreck.

Sometimes, Mo, I get the Hernandez siblings confused with the Lopez-Fitzgerald siblings ( PASSIONS), LOL.

I was a bit dissapointed. I thought he was far too old to play Dario, who seemed to be in his early 20s last time he was in Salem, and he was a lot cuter. Now he looks closer in age to Rafe, when he used to be closer in age to Gabi. He was part of the Chad, Mel, Abby, Will teen scene, but now he’s the same age as Shawn and Belle. It’ll take me a while to get used to him, just as it has been with New Phillip.

I guess he was okay, I mean, I wasn’t overly impressed. I do remember him on All My Children where he played a doctor and his sister got involved with Dr David Hayward played by Vince I. who is now also on Days.
But, the storyline is, I don’t know, stupid…LoL…I don’t know what else to call it, it just doesn’t thrill me. Brady is having Daniel’s memories because he now has Daniel’s heart beating in his chest. Yeah, uh huh okay, yes, that can happen…..maybe in a grade B Science Fiction movie I suppose.
Maybe it really IS just me but I thought the show was stronger when it centered around Sonny, Will, Paige, EJ and Sammi. I guess we all have our own preference for characters and storylines but right now, Belle’s problems don’t ring true to me (how’s THAT for a pun) and I am not that enthralled by Ciarra getting attacked by her supposed “stepbrother”.
I DO like Kate Mansi as Abby but we all know she’s leaving so who knows if they will recast the character or what they will do – my guess is they will recast since she is so involved with Chad.
Right now, I sort of watch the show just to watch it, it doesn’t draw me in very deeply, they need to come up with something a bit more compelling.

CeeCee

Absolutely, Tim W. I agree with your every word. Most of what you and I said is practically identical. Later.

Mo

Don’t get the storyline that he is MIA from his family and decided to bartend. Doesn’t seem to jive with the past Dario.

I’m like whatever. Not into this whole Summer story either. Or many of the stories on the show at the mo. Lots of bad acting and bad writing. Hate to say it, but it’s true.

Jim Preston

Oh please I like So agree – this gal Summer, who of course is a long lost sister of so and so…please. The writers need to surely come up with something more compelling than this shlock….it’s the same old same old….
I KNEW they couldn’t POSSIBLY stay on the innovative road with Will, Sonny and those other characters of that time….

Jim Preston
Jim Preston

The writers just really need to brainstorm and come up with some interesting storylines, Brady searching for a girl on the beach……that he has seen in his dreams…..uh, because he has Daniel’s heart now…..really? Honestly? I watch the show and I think, why am I watching this now? What is there for me to relate to?
The very young people on the show, and I know they are less experienced in dramatic arts, aren’t very convincing.

Jaime
Jaime

whole Daniel and Brady story is unwatchable.

Too many Hernandez members right now!!!!!!
If the show needs cuts they need to cut this.

if the vets get backburnered or exited we will have what Corday indicated is a Days that is UNRECOGNIZABLE and those of us who returned and gave Days its newfound ratings will be marching on and away

Jim Preston
Jim Preston

You know, sorry to say that is true. To me, it’s like, what am I watching? Brady chasing after a woman he saw in a dream? Sooo stupid and far fetched….oh and yes he just had a Heart transplant so of course he is diving in the ocean…uh ok…yeah that could happen.
All right, I know characters coming and go but on this show if you blink a character is gone….and then there are an abundance of very very young kids on the show. I am older, a more mature viewer so what is there for me to relate to? I am now over 50, I guess maybe my feelings don’t count in the target demographic but let me tell you right now this show is a snooze-fest.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, Deadline.com noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.

So, what do you think about some of the key points that the Days of our Lives producers bring up in their lawsuit against Sony? Comment below.
