Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

Photo: JPI

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Loved it! An actual surprise on a soap opera. And one that was kept hidden for months, considering the Days taping schedule. Cool filming too with the light and smoke.

I kind of figured it was her but I got to say they did a great job with the lighting and effects. Soaps need to get back to surprising us and not give out spoilers.

For Hell’s sake, why did they bring back this abomination??

The REAL Eve Donovan is a Days legacy character. Not this joke & ReRon pet.

Get rid of her. Again. And make it permanent this time.

And so help me, by all that is unholy…… if the rumors of a Claire recast are even remotely true… never mind, I’m not even going to speak that into existence because the thought is 666% intolerable.

Get this OLTL baggage off the show NOW. Bring back the REAL Eve.

Satan, I agree with you 99 percent of the time (on soap matters, that is), but it’s time to let go of the OLTL hate (even if hate is critical to a devilish repertoire). Kassie DePaiva is a well-respected performer with a lot of fans, and her previous work with Ron shouldn’t be held against her. Charlotte Ross broke her original contract back in the day and departed Days early. She was offered the chance to come back (before Kassie was asked to step in) and passed because she was too busy with other projects. So you can’t blame those… Read more »

I think Kassie DePaiva does a very good job as Eve. I have seen episodes my grandmother recorded with the “real” Eve and am completely unimpressed by her acting ability.

I never liked the first Eve….she was a greasy sleazy unlikeable whore. I love Kassie…..but this is not a good recast. Kassie is older than the woman who played Eve’s mother….and the character has no relevance on the canvas without Shane her father. Sbe is far too campy and “put on”. They have tried to shoehorn her into almost every story…Jack and Jennifer….The Kiriakis, the DiMera’s……its time to cut some losses and admit its not working and spend salary money on characters who are more connected to the heart of the show.

the actress who plaued her daughter has been rehired. Why do a serial killer storuline only to bring back all the victims alive? Its cheap, low grade Jim Reilly writing that Ron C. Excels at.

I had to laugh so hard at the production values. Took me straight back to those cheesy 1970’s music videos with the harsh lighting, smoky room and then Eve’s killer red sequin dress. Perhaps it was to all be symbolic but, boy!, did it ad some levity to my day!

Indeed–pure camp! Who wears a red sequined dress to hang out in an abandoned warehouse?

Michael Fairman, have you considered labeling things Spoiler, so those who haven’t seen the episode yet aren’t spoiled? I take a chance logging on to websites for news coverage (I faithfully follow your site) and realize the episode aired, so technically it isn’t a spoiler, but for me it is, since I’m not caught up yet. Just some constructive criticism, I enjoy your webpage, but will be weary if I haven’t seen the current episode of any soap. Thank you.

I have always hated the character of Eve from the time she seduced her teenage daughters boyfriend, J.J. All she does is wreak havoc on the show. I only saw one little bit of goodness when she was with Brady and his son. I imagine Rafes dad will be back to help her exact revenge on Ben for killing their daughter Paige. Her constant need to destroy Jennifer was another senseless goal. She may be a good actor but I have only seen her in this role, so I am only say I will not be watching the show much… Read more »

As much as I love Kassie, this is another ridiculously infantile and over-the-to, and overly used plot. There is no excitement or anticipation unless the viewer enjoys torture. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
On another note ( off the subject), I think Jake is Stefan, where Julie has Jake’s heart. It is, indeed, conceivable that this Vincent guy transferred Jake’s memories into Stefan’s brain. Days is an open book—yet, I have been wrong before. That plot has legs—-this Eve thing does not. Perhaps, TPTB intend for Ciera to die by Eve’s hand.

As good as Kassie is, and she is damn good, she can’t save this over the top story arc with yet another brainwashing…sloppy lazy writing and poor production. This writer is making a mess of this show..need to get back to real drama/angst.

I figured that it would turn out to be Eve. I hate the whole story. As someone who deals with mental illness, I find it disrespectful. It is a jump the shark moment for the character of Eve. I think it is time to retire the character for a good long while.

I dont like what Eve is doing to Ben.Not at all.I think she is doing this so Ben can be arrested again then be thrown in jail for good.Also the fact that Ciera please excuse my spelling.Will be gone anyway. I hope they catch Eve before she does more harm.

Everyone please take care stay safe and well,by all means wear a mask.

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?
