Friday marked the final appearance of Marie Wilson in the role of Summer Townsend on Days of our Lives.  As viewers, know Summer turned out to be the biological daughter of none other than Maggie (Suzanne Rogers).

The character was first introduced when Brady (Eric Martsolf) was drawn to this vision of a woman who he tracked down in California! It all went down following Brady receiving Daniel’s Jonas’ (Shawn Christian) heart following a life-saving transplant surgery.  In story, Summer was at first believed to be the responsible party for the kidnapping of Brady and Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) child, Tate.  Today, Summer said goodbye to her mother and all of a sudden was nowhere to be found, as she supposedly ran out of town.

Marie Wilson took to Twitter to mark her final appearance with tweet that stated:  “Here it is….. July 29th, 2016….Summer’s last air date. Thank you NBC Days, Greg Meng, Albert Alarr, and everyone!!! XOXO”

I’m sorry to see Marie Wilson go. I’ve always enjoyed her work. The Summer character was rather one dimensional. I wish they had developed her more and integrated her into the community. Best of luck to Marie in the future.

Yes, just WHAT was the reason for bringing her on the program if they weren’t going to give her a real character and a real storyline? Just frustrating.

Marie is a great actress but, the role of “Summer” was horribly developed. A bad attempt at creating a Meg Synder 2.0; I would have preferred seeing her return as Bree Tjaden. That would have been a more realistic approach for her, as I feel as if her connection to Hope would’ve held as a better storyline.

Story never made sense. She was too young to be Maggie’s daughter. Based on the time Maggie has been in Salem her child should be close to 50 and at least older than Daniel was.

Yes, poorly conceived.

I genuinely felt bad for the actress. Did Summer have a story or did she do the one scene with Brady over and over? The one scene with Maggie over and over. Ditto Victor. What are as her story arc? There was none. Even today the character said : no one wants me her. She’s said this enough times that it was part mantra, part self fulfilling prophecy. For reasons beyond my comprehension, Summer always seemed tentative, jittery, like she’d rather be anywhere else. It was odd. New characters need to land on the canvas hard. Tentative? That’s a weak… Read more »

Marie did a fine job, but DAYS should’ve never created the character of Summer who turned out to be a bummer. Ironicly, considering the character’s name, the storyline ran cold. I was in a shivering slumber!

Pretty much a complete and utter waste of time and a squandering of viewer interest and loyalty. A flicker of a concept is not the same as a story line. Next time write a long-term story before launching a role.

Nothing against the actress but the character of Summer was an epic fail…want a Maggie daughter storyline then use Melissa or Sarah-enough said!!

I like Marie Wilson but the character of Summer just didn’t click. She’s great but it just didn’t work…for that reason, and there are too established many characters that deserve more story, I am glad the character has exited.

Days needs to stop blaming actors for bad writing choices. Summer was, by all accounts, not well received. Yet, how many popular soap performers have been brought on and let go within a short amount of time? Marie Wilson was let go before Summer even aired, and it was likely because she was a Josh hire and character and Dena Higley is a petty, spiteful bully who fired all Josh’s hires so there would be more room for her beloved Hernandez family. Dario is not popular either, and yet he’s still around. It’s been clear for a long time that… Read more »

kaylie15…I get (and agree with) what you’re saying here. I especially agree with you about that Dario dude. At this point, I find Dario to be FAST-FORWARD MATERIAL ALL THE WAY!!!!! YIKES!!!!!

They just never should have cancelled ATWT when it was on fire at the end with Chris Goutman and now GH impresario Jean Passannate would be working on a better show – actors like West, Cosgrove and so many others would be on a better show than Days or GH right now. GH was on fire I thought when Jean was working under Ron. Then they brought in all these breakdown writers from what I thought was Days and it is not that good and even those breakdown writers did better with Days like Janet Ianconubo??? I think right now… Read more »

I realy liked Marie as Karen on Port Charles! She should go to GH, after all Scotty is still there and so is Sonny…

Isn’t this the same actress who warned Hope about Aiden?!?! And that wasn’t that long ago… Geez, I thought only GH hired the same actors repeatedly to create 2, 3, up to 4 different roles…

Perhaps before your time…but Josh Taylor (now Roman Brady) played the beloved character of Chris Kositchek. He was a groomsman for Roman and Marlena’s wedding.
Roman was played by Wayne Northrup (who’s married to Lynn Herring – Lucy Coe on GH).
When Wayne was on “Port Charles” they re-cast Roman with Josh Taylor. I still can’t accept him as I only see Chris Kositchek. But Johs is Ken Corday’s BFF.
DAYS did a great job when they had Eileen Davidson playing up to 5 different characters at once.

Thanks for the background information, mrsnoahdrake! I had read about (and forgotten about) Eileen Davidson’s multiple roles. And I can see how you would fondly identify Josh Taylor as Chris Kositchek. And I guess that pertains to my original point: it is unsettling to see the same actor recast in another role on the same show. Thanks again!

She should go to GH. They’re having a hiring spree!

She used to play Scotty’s daughter, Karen. They killed her off. I think it was on “Port Charles”
Poor Scotty also lost his son Logan. Now he’s stuck with crazy Franco.
And no sign of Sarena, whom we’d love to see!

I don’t watch DAYS, but I loved Marie on AS THE WORLD TURNS – I would love it if she turned up on “Y & R”!!

Well there’s nothing much I can add here that hasn’t been said, but the character of Summer didn’t appeal to me and I guess not to other viewers as well. The actress portraying her was fine, it just didn’t seem to connect with any storyline – and Brady having visions of her because he had Daniel’s heart was ridiculous to begin with.

Right you are. It would have been so much more interesting if they had transplanted Dr. Dan’s heart into a resurrected Chandler Massey version of Will. Heck, even slapping that heart into bellhop Derrick could have provided more interesting storylines than what’s going on now.

Yes, I agree – they really need to give Sonny a storyline now that he’s back and I too wish Chandler Massey was on the scene. As for bellhop Derrick, well He can ring my buzzer anytime LoL – but alas, he was only on the show on short contract (I assume) – and Paul certainly needs something to do other than always looking on the computer for his raspy voiced dad or fetching hamburgers. Well, when DAYS OF OUR LIVES returns on August 22nd I guess we will find out in which direction the writers are going – lately… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
