Days of our Lives fans can look forward to watching soap favorite, Marie Wilson, in upcoming new episodes on the NBC soap opera this fall.

In an exciting story arc set to kick off this Halloween, Marie plays the character of Bree, an old acquaintance of Hope’s who turns out to be someone from Aiden’s dark past.

Marie will be sharing the screen with Kristian Alfonso and Daniel Cosgrove in some thrilling upcoming scenes.  Clearly, if Wilson’s other soap roles on As the World Turns, Port Charles and The Bay are any indication, we bet Bree is not going to be your run of the mill goody-two-shoes!

You will need to stay tuned to see how she shakes things up for this Salem couple.

So what do you think of the addition of Marie Wilson to DAYS? What do you think will be her relationship to Aiden’s past? Comment below!

And Serena has a sister named Nina, who broke out of Chricton-Clark in New York with her along with Victor Cassadine’s daughter, Rosalie, who is afraid of her dad. They’ve been hiding out in Port Charles, NY. Nina just swindled the family fortune out from under her mother Madeline, and she gave Serena enough cash to flee to Salem where her ex-husband Aiden is. She’s determined to get him back! Ok…I quit.. I’m not match for Jim! I’m SO glad they will be giving the magnificent Daniel Cosgrove more than bake sale storylines & more than 4 scenes a month!!… Read more »

I like DAYS..Its been good and solid for the most part since the fall of 2012..But it seems that every storyline drags for months and months then when we think we are getting a huge reward for waiting, the writers disappoint and the story fizzles, IE: (Jordan’s storyline, Paige and JJ teenage romance and the whole Hope/Aidan connection)…Months and months and for what!! DAYS needs some fine tuning in the writing department…Also, they have lost so many popular cast members and only have signed a couple of fan favorites..They need to be more aggressive and try to bring more solid… Read more »

I think so too…. Clyde, Jordan, and Ben are wasteland unfortunately. with Kristen soon to be on her way out… along with EJ and Sami this is a lot of monies , hopefully, to bring on and/or back…. nuBO…. Ted King, nuEJ… Michael Muhney MAN, what I wouldn’t love more… is Daniel and Jenn to ride off in to the sunset to expedite more cashola kimberly and Shane… to cement the Donovan’s as they are Brady’ as well…. to solidify a core family bring back carrie and austin anything is better than the above characters who don’t drive and sadly,… Read more »

I think the writing of these characters is what made this storyline a dud..I agree, Mo, its time to end this story and break each character into different directions.

None of those stories have really concluded. I think they’re taking their time setting those up and they’ll really get cooking once Sami leaves. I do agree that since about this time two years ago, DAYS has been pretty solid.

I like Marie. I like Melissa Archer. I like Daniel Cosgrove. Alicia Lee Willis is ok. Mark Collier was alright too. I mean no disrespect when I say this but…. Why all the B list soap stars? Where are the shocking big draw casting names? On the one hand, I love that DAYS doesn’t stunt cast with no particular purpose like GH an YR. But on the other, I want DAYS in the game! Kassie was a nice get. And there are no words to describe what an asset Eileen has been. But surely there are bigger stars looking for… Read more »

It seems to still be a problem at DOOL. In James Scott’s recent interview, he was saying something about not shooting past 6 PM or it would cost them more money.

Anyway, that is just my guess.

So she is only a short term character? When does Melissa Archer start? Did she and Daniel Cosgrove share scenes together on ATWT? I never watched that show but I am familiar with Marie and Meg Snyder.

I wish Marie Wilson would stay on the canvas longer than just short term! With the exit of James Scott and the upcoming departures of Alison Sweeney and Eileen Davidson, there’s going to be a big whole left in the canvas and it will need filling. I’m really looking forward to Melissa Archer joining the cast and it’d be great if they kept Marie Wilson for more than just a few episodes. She was great on ATWT.

Too soon to think anything about this. I’m not familiar with Ms. Wilson, or any of her work. But I do wish her well.

I had made a comment but @MichaelFairman on Air on Soaps constantly trolls what I post and a lot of times what I say is just not posted. But I love this website and the way posters make it like a big fan family fan base and just shake my head at the same time while reading mile long show bashing posts and nonsense sometimes…but hey…if you want to be heard all the time…I do get it…and I will continue to visit and listen to podcasts…so oh well!!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
