Oh man, the emotions with this one. Joseph and Stefano have been a big part of Days that it’s hard to believe that he’s gone for good. I’m glad to see a send off episode. I’ll have to watch it on the NBC website later.

Oh, my goodness. Seeing Mr. Mascolo will be so surreal…..the show was not shown, today, due to the blizzard.
I do hope it will be shown tomorrow. I know I will cry….miss him. RIP.

I had a snow day here in NY, and I was able to watch DOOL live. I’m so glad I did. The In Memoriam for Joe Mascolo at the end of the episode was beautiful. It’s hard for me to believe we’ll never see Stefano again except in flashbacks. It was an honor to watch him for all these years. I never got tired of seeing the Phoenix rise, and it’s fitting that Stefano escaped from jail yet again. We’ll miss you, Stefano DiMera, and Joe Mascolo.

You are lucky, Beth. I had no programming ( I am in Suffolk County, NY), only the snow coverage until 3PM.

I watched the “tribute” episode this afternoon on the alternate COZI channel due to the blizzard here in NY. Am I a Grinch to say I was deeply disappointed? The memorial at the very end, with a great photo of Joe and Shakespearean quote was lovely, but I think that a retrospective of some of his greatest scenes, especially those with Thao and James Scott as well as Dierdra and Kristian, would have been something his many fans would have appreciated. It was obvious that the miniscule scenes of Stefano had been recorded much earlier, and he no lines. How… Read more »

I agree with you Boots! I, too was disappointed. They should have devoted the whole episode to Stefano – if he was unable to speak, they could have had flashbacks with EJ, Lexie and Kristen. But, we got what we got and Joe is gone, may he Rest In Peace. But! Stefano, the Phoenix will never die – not in the memories of his fans!!!

They did do a full episode last year with past Stefano scenes, when Stefano was first killed off, all his adversaries gathered at the Brady Pub, there was Roman, John, Marlena, Caroline, Victor, Kate and a very quiet Hope. I still don’t get how he came back to life this time, those death scenes wer pretty final.

I am hoping they will do something later, like Y&R did for Jeanne Cooper.

It seemed to me that it was merely old footage of him in a jail cell from some older episode edited in to make it seem these folks were confronting Stefano — don’t get wrong I am super glad they undid his death at Hope’s hand– thought that was the dumbest thing the previous writers ever did– so great– and I love the idea the character is somewhere out there– never to be seen again, but causing trouble in Salem until the show ends whenever that might be— I think Joe would have liked that.

Yes, super dumb to have Hope shoot/kill Stefano. And the scenes of it were ridiculous IMO.

Maybe Stefano and Sally Spectra are living it up somewhere. 🙂

I heard that Joe’s last filmed appearance, which was this, was taped back in August of last year.

It wasn’t an old film; it was an actual performance because of how Days tapes its shows. In this case, I’m glad that they tape months ahead. (only in this case)

Well, we saw Hope shoot him, we saw him go down, we saw Rafe assist Hope in putting his body in a building that was about to be imploded. So, although I have not yet watched today’s episode on the NBC app – will be interesting to see how the writers got around this one –

This is one of those moments where I’m glad that DAYS tapes ahead of time that Joseph was strong enough at that moment last year to make one last hurrah for the show and for the fans who thought that his last onscreen death was his last appearance ever.

As the song goes from the lady with a beard: “Rise like a phoenix”, Stefano DiMera.

It was both great seeing him and at the same time hard to watch. The fact that he didn’t speak lead me to feel he couldn’t talk because of his Alzheimer’s… but did the best he could while struggling with his memory because of the awful disease. It would have been nice if they would have shown clips from the past so you could hear his voice which I think would have softened the fact that he wasn’t speaking. Or they could have spliced in him speaking from his cell while not seeing his face so that it had the… Read more »

The show was not seen here on NBC yesterday due to the storm but they went and showed it on there sister station Cozi tv and I am glad they did.However I did see todays show what is up with Shane and Steve did they fake the whole thing and why. Perhaps just to free Hope I am really confused.I suppose if u missed Thursdays episode you can go the the Days site NBC.Com and you maybe able to find yesterday show there to watch .More snow to come .lol

That’s exactly what I did. We had snow coverage ALL day in Connecticut, so didn’t see it ! It was great to see him one last time. RIP Joe !!

The show is to be commended for bringing back Joe Mascolo one last time to free themselves from the terrible decision by the prior writing regime to have Hope “kill” Stefano. It is clear those scenes were taped the same day as the rest of the show, but they had to be sensitive to Mr. Mascolo’s medical condition, and I thought they were very considerate. Remember that back in March 2016 there was an entire clip show devoted to Stefano as the Bradys sat around the pub and remembered their encounters with Stefano. You can still download that one on… Read more »

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Robert Clary, DAYS, Y&R and ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ Favorite, Passes Away at 96

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
