Good win for Days…Suzanne Rogers(Maggie) shouldve been there…she was on Days for 40 years and was there when the show last won in 1978! She couldve talked about how it felt to have the show win for the first time in 35 years!

What the hell did Peggy McCay do to her face? Her face lift is so tight she can’t even open her mouth and I can barely watch her on DAYS with her pointy finger in everyone’s faces. Can’t women just age gracefully?

Ces she has had a stroke which I am sure as you know it pulls generally one side of the face down also it does affect speech therefore when she did have probably a face lift they tended to pull the skin I feel a little exaggerated also age drooping face etc harder to do. You ask why women can’t age gracefully society as we know it won’t let them. They never make comments hardly about a man aging but a woman they are all over it. Also face surgeries are touchy with me I have a sister born with… Read more »

I was originally wondering if she did have a stroke but couldn’t find anything aout it, but you’re right, she must have had some plastic surgery afterward to
fix it…. still, more women should age gracefully instead of turning themselves into the Lisa Rinna/Hunter Tylo’s of the world where they aren’t even recognizable anymore… I didn’t think you were being an a-hole 😉

I do totally agree with you about Hunter Tylo when she lived in Las Vegas I use to see her all the time we shopped same area and when I realized one day what she had done my friend and I said WTH one of the most beautiful women why? When the good lord gives you those kind of looks it just does not make sense. I have noticed she seems to have toned down the lip thing. I guess like I said before they get this society thing in their head maybe they need to spend some time in… Read more »

CES: Peggy McCay is a stroke survivor and that is why she cannot open her mouth completely.

Oh is she? If that’s the case, I’m sorry about that. But, it still appears as if she got some plastic surgery because her face looks a lot different, tighter and wrinkle free.

She has also had hip surgery and she is 85 years old she has won a primetime emmy she has also done theatre. She is a wonderful lady and she deserved that emmy. She is of the old school like Jeanne Cooper & Susan Flannery she actually has worked hard I think SF would have been thrilled also if she had won it.

wasn’t commenting on her hip or talent, was just curious about her face as it looks different to me. I think Susan Flannery should have won instead of Heather Tom.

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
