argh!!!! – ONLY – if this includes Tamara Braun… she was AMAZING this last go around.

she gave as good as she got…. her best

she reminded me so much of …. Kristen DiMera… and that’s a huge payoff.

THERE was ALOT of passion with Steve and Ava. yeah, for me, to say that

“Kayla, KAYLA, KayLA “

HaHa, Jimmy. Too funny. Maybe, Patch’s time with Ava was a real ‘Tripp’?

David did father a child with Trish, Celia. His name is Scott(y).

Viewers never knew David and Valerie rekindled their romance and had a son. Julie doesn’t know and David is most likely clueless too!

This Lucas Adams kid better have some M-A-J-O-R ACTING CHOPS!!!!! If not, who cares……….

Good grief. Didn’t Ava just have the baby a few years ago? How is the kid so old?

Will it come out that Joey killed his mother?

I’m tired of all these new characters and young actors on the show. I’d rather see story with Julie and Doug, Maggie and Victor.

I just hope this guy can act.

No, Mo, they only recently looked for their baby (Tripp) because they didn’t know he existed until then. Ava was on anti-psychotic drugs!

Julie will have a lot of story coming up because she’s the grandmother of the first black Horton…Valerie gave birth to David’s son!

Celia

Ok. So, 4ever….I realize I was not on earth at that time, LOL…..( most of my DOOL back history is from my grandmother)….. but, I thought David had a child with Trish? ( Patty Weaver). Hmmmm. I wonder why my grandmother didn’t tell me about a baby with Valerie. Is this for certain?
Am I to assume Julie has no idea of this kid’s existence? Surprise, Julie!! This, I “gotta” see.

Celia
Celia

Thanks, 4ever….got it. So, David has two kids with two different women.

Tripp is a nickname usually given to boys who are the third family member to have the same name. I.e. If grandfather is John, his son is John Jr., his grandson is John III who is called Tripp for triple.

Ohhhhh!! Thank you, mfarris. I just leaned something new.

Since Joey murdered Tripp’s mother, I doubt there will be brotherly bonding.

i’m a dolt… short on memory recall. always in the moment. I forgot… that Ava is down under.

Tamara Braun is such a good actress.

Gee, Patrick; I thought Ava was dead, not in Aussieland. KIDDING!!

I feel sometimes that this show is “grasping at straws” trying to get something solid going which it seldom seems to accomplish. They need another young actor on this show like a hole in the head – most of the ones they currently have can barely act as it is – sorry, I know that sounds kind of harsh but I honestly do watch this show on a regular basis (at night, after work, on the NBC ap) and most of the time I find myself saying “geez, get ON WITH it already!” meaning that the scripts and storylines are sooo draggy, and actually, out-of-touch with today.

I do not watch Days but when I saw the picture of this young actor I was struck by his resemblance to a very young Michael York.

Well, until Joey and Jade had sex, I was hoping Jade was Ava’s daughter. The actress resembled Ava to a certain degree and some of her mannersisms were similar so it could have worked.

And this guy could have been a new Will (as I’ve given up the remote hope that Chandler is ever going to come back).

But the dynamic could be interesting between him and Joey (if Joey could muster up enough energy to act anthing more than stoned 24/7).

I have appreciated that the teen brigade has been downplayed some the last couple of months. These guys were really green and the show made all kinds of mistakes dealing with them – Joey seriously underplays everything, Ciara is still SOOOO stiff, Theo and Claire tend to overact, the best one of the bunch was Chase and he was immediately written into a corner and off the show. They’ve all improved but they all still have quite a ways to go before being able to handle the types of stories that the show threw Ciara and Joey into right off the bat. They need stories where they regularly intereact with adults so they can learn from the older actors (which is what has been happening recently so they aren’t having to carry stories by themselves). And I see potential for Claire to be a new trouble maker on the show – she could be a new Sami with a little more seasoning.

Well he looks more like our Patch man than his other onscreen children.

Hope he ultimately gives our Patch man a chance. The man takes far too much abuse from others.

Would rather see this than the current fare on Days. The holiday season for Days was ruined by the Deimos stuff. Now Nicole seems to have inherited the bad vibes as well. Their story is one I really can no longer continue with.

He resembles Stephen Nichols too. That name though, maybe it’s a nickname like Patch was for Steve, he might trip a lot.

I actually have seen this kid on some other shows. I think he’s a good looking kid, plus might lend a genuine depth to his character.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.
