On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, another bad man comes to Salem in the form of Blanca’s (Ximena Duque) ex, Guillermo!

Actor Kurt Caceres, who previously appeared in the soaps on The Bold and the Beautiful, takes on this troublemaker who has made his way to town.

In the episode, Blanca is angry that he followed her to Salem at all!  She reveals that he is part of a drug cartel and that she has proof that he was on the take and will tell his boss if he doesn’t make a quick exit of town.  Dario (Jordi Vilasuso) threatens to call the cops on him so Guillermo takes off, but Blanca is now completely rattled.

And in a twist later in the episode, Guillermo spies Theresa (Jen Lilley) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) in an argument with Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier), and lo and behold makes a call to some mystery person relating that he just spotted “Theresa Donovan!”

Is this curtains for Theresa?  What do you think will happen next?  What do you think of Caceres in the role of Guillermo? Comment below!

He murders Teressa…

Hope not! I’m hoping Shane gets her out of town as I can see JL returning to Salem.

from your mouth to gods ear… all I can hope

Same here, Jake. I love Jen/Theresa, and I hope the door is left open for her.

Also, I wanted to add that if Eric is, indeed, coming back; I would love to see Nicole back with him. Especially if her ‘ liaison’ with Deimos seems to be soon over.

it’s disappointing… Jenn Lilly has a caliber – arsenal – to ACT top draw in this genre.


mine at times will.

Jeanne Theresa Donovan… was at her best … when she is resident bitch… biting… disenchanted with family… yearning for love… even acting out.. etc etc

there was a lot of cache in her character.

any ways : the writers @DAYS ruined a good time

I read in SOD.. that Guillermo is in fact here for the start of Theresa – exit –

she’s one of my favorite… because Jenn Lilly is an actors actor… always reliable and could never count her out

Ken Corday mucked this up

I know that Brady and Theresa had their own nuptial.. in their bedroom… “oh well” to make up for their actual wedding the night the three amigos escaped.

in my heart.. I wish it was still a legal ceremony… because Jeanne Theresa knows the difference in what she’s all about

DAYS – PLEASE give us Grandma Caroline and Granddaughter Theresa some scene

whenever I think of Jeanne Theresa antics… all I have to think of… is when

Theresa went all commando and near bludgeoned the heck out of John Black… with that poker

party all the time

Theresa was never MORE FUN… when Anne was REELING with…. these two are the HOOT

these moments define ART… what a relationship

i’ll throw in when Theresa and Nicole understood each other… what a pair

Theresa with Grandma Caroline… the best tears

Theresa and her big sister Eve… Theresa REELED right along side

loved Jeanne Theresa adversarial know how… no matter who it was

there you have it… I love this girl.

I am patiently waiting… LIGHTS ON

Kassie DePaiva

as Eve Donovan

Oh, I’m with you, Patrick, about Kassie. Sadly, she’s battling cancer, from what I understand. She’s in my prayers.

I would also love to see the nuAbbi make her appearance soon.
How about this: she will return with a different face where no one will recognize her. She’ll probably mistaken Chad’s and Gabi’s close friendship as something else ( which could probably be a love story in the making between Chad and Gabi), and a ‘quadrangle’ will be in full force. The last ingredient: JJ…..What say you, Patrick?

Seeing Kurt Caceres back on daytime is a treat, but do we really need this character? Blanca is already a newbie, and someone we don’t know very much about. So adding this Guillermo dude from her past isn’t really game-changing story. I have a feeling he won’t last long though, since he’s quite clearly a bad guy, and his last name isn’t DiMera or Kiriakis.

He’s brought on for Theresa’s exit story.

Too early to tell right now if he’s a good addition. But anything that has Dario in more airtime is not.

NOT one word about the return of DERRICK?? When last we heard from Derrick, he was sort of a Bell boy at the local Hotel. Then, we don’t know for certain, he left town for a while. Now, he is back and causing some friction between Sonny and Paul.
What kind of show is this where people come and go without “any real” explanation? Now I guess Derrick is an Administrative Assistant at the HOSPITAL. Well that’s what he said anyway. The actor who portrays Derrick is very good in the role, why don’t the writers give him something substantial to do? No, no, instead for the UMPEENTH time we have to vomit while listening to Patch calling Kayla “sweetness” while trying to get back together with her – how old are these two? Don’t they have their marriage together by NOW? Concentrate more on Sonny, Paul, Derrick and finding out whether or not Abby is still alive. Honestly, sincerely, I am so tired of Kayla and Patch….almost as tired as I am of raspy voiced John making promises to Marlena –

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
