This is a game changer! Everyone should be prepared to watch Lamon Archey play Eli! Tune in or miss a lot! The character is a Horton!

In the late 1970’s Julie’s son, David Banning, was presumed dead after a car accident. The Grant family, African Americans, took care of David. David and Valerie fell for each other in a slow burn romance. They were chaste and when the viewers back then saw a full on kiss between the two all hell broke loose! It really did hit the fan! Valerie soon was gone and David took up with Trish. David and Trish had a son together, but soon divorced.

Now, all these years later, it looks like David and Valerie somehow crossed paths, but ended their relationship again, but not without creating Eli, the son David must not know about and the grandson Julie will finally know she has!

Some sources say Gabi will have her hooks in Eli which will burn Julie up!

I hope DAYS does their best in making up for caving in to the viewers’ demands all those years ago and I hope the viewers of today show more respect for the human race!

Days is kind of doing the story i suggested…i did write this here sometime ago and sent it in to Ted Corday…its only slightly different but much what i said…Val and David remet but broke up again after he left her to take care of an ill Trish…Val was preg but didnt tell David.but there was the possibility the child could be Val’s old boyfriend Jerry Davis…the child was put with Jerry’s family to raise…the same Davis family who had raised Abes first wife Lexi…this version is somewhat different than what we are seeing on tv but its still what i suggested!!!

Thanks for that, 4ever….very intersting and intriguing. Will Eli be well-received?
So, Eli must be in his late thirties, early forties. He’s hot!! ……I know, I know, that’s beside the point.
But, he looks younger than what he’s supposed to be.

like i told 4ever…i had written here on this message board a story sometime ago involving Valerie with Abe and the possibility she had a child with David Banning and even sent it to Ken Corday…this we are seeing on tv is slightly different then what i had written them because it also invloved Maxine and the adoption of the child but its much like i had said…so its like watching my own soap synopsis being written and told on my soap..only without the credit but i dont care..its making me enjoy the show again seeing one of my ideas unfold!!!

Truthfully, I never liked him on The Young and the Restless as Mason. I felt like he just did not fit in, and his acting caliber was really small. So, I am hoping that this casting at Days of Our Lives is not some kind of six-month stunt and then plans to recast the moment he begins to air. I’m also hoping he might’ve excelled a bit more in his acting, as this could be incredibly messy, despite the storyline possibilities being endlessly amazing!

I didn’t like him on Y&R. Hopefully he is better in this role.

I love nothing more than when a show digs way into its past to create current stories. Can’t wait to see it play out and hope that more futures stories are sprung from the days history books.

I agree.. they have done some good writing and have been doing some good casting lately.. I knew something was up when Valerie asked Julie about her son David on Thanksgiving….

Of course that’s what this show needs, ANOTHER Horton! Not.

i think this story holds a lot of promise. I would love to see David Banning come back and be the new patriarch-type character. Gregg Marx was fantastic in the role. I would also love to see Mike Horton come back as well.

No, Redarick was worse.

I really like him, he was great on Y&R with the little bit of material he was given. I hope I see a Lani/Eli pairing.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
