Is there any chance that the Days of our Lives powers-that-be might be bringing back Jack Deveraux to Salem, now that Jennifer Horton Deveraux is slated for a permanent stay?  That is the question we posed to Matt Ashford at The Bay fundraiser.  So far Ashford says he has not been contacted by the NBC sudser, but is ready, willing, and able for a return in the right situation and to reunite with Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) on-screen!

Ashford on returning to DAYS: “I know Missy is coming back to DAYS and I am so glad.  I want her to be happy and working, and all that.  As far as I know at this point, they have not written anything in the broad strokes that would include Jack, and when they do I hope they would call me.  I would be open to return if the situation is right.  Gary Tomlin is a great producer, and if he has got something for me, he will let me know.  Until that time I have learned to trust. It’s better to let them write their story, and I will be there when they want me to be there, but in the meantime, I have other irons in the fire and other projects, I am working on, and so it’s all good”

It’s ridiculous that they wouldn’t bring him back. I would imagine like 95% of Jennifer fans are Jack and Jennifer fans. Why wouldn’t they want to capitalize on that?

Jack and Jennifer are easily the most fun and entertaining supercouple Days has had.

Damit Days bring Jack back! If they can’t do on contract do reoccuring. Maybe that way Days will keep them together instead of splitting them up. We need stable, happy couples right now. Jack and Jennifer were like Nick and Nora Charles. Too bad Reily did not want to write for that combo. Split them up in 93 and in 2003. Even after Reily left they did not know how to write for them. Put them in triangle with Frankie. Only got the read J&J last two weeks before they left the show in 2006. Days needs better writing for… Read more »

They have to bring Matt back, but they have to give J&J better story lines. It was annoying when they killed Jack off three times in the matter of three years or something stupid like that. They are a great couple and can pull off challenging scenes and can anchor the show.

Jack would be so welcome back to Days. Their storylines were always so entertaining and so much fun!

Who do we write to for this to happen? It is terrible to have her back if he is not with her! How will they break them up this time? Have not the fans proven throughout the years that they want them together?

Austin and carrie where pure gold back in the day. I adore all the actors. But just like ejami, there are some die hard caustin jj fans out there tooo.

Please bring back Jack And Jennifer reeves and ashford and keep them together they make the show with their antics, battering, and loving Im getting tired of all the mate swapping it would be nice to see one stable couple we never got to see them together the last time. I know I would come back to the show if I thought they both would be back .

What I hate most of all is the way this story line is taking a beloved character like Jack and putting him on some walkabout… I mean seriously! Yes Jack before Jennifer was fractured and damaged and confused. And Yes sometimes he was a flake. But Jennifer’s love and fathering Abby and eventually JJ made him in to a real member of the Horton family. He is a stand up guy. And bringing Jennifer back and putting her through all of this turmoil without Jack there to help her through it and love her through it is just deplorable. Trying… Read more »

Bring Matthew Ashford back. Give Jack and Jen a good story again, not like Reilly’s crap. Then keep them together. It’s like the above poster said, taking this character who was transformed by love and doing this with him is nonsense.

Ugh… why are they ruining Days by having Jennifer and Jack get a divorce? It’s so annoying. I hope the writers are teasing the public with this. I like Daniel a lot, but I like Jack and Jen together. They have the perfect chemistry. Bring Jack back!

I watched Days today and thought wow they have sunk to a new low. Adrianne and Justin are back and Jacks own sister is selling him out and encouraging Jen to move on with Dr Creepy . Why isn’t Jen more concerned that Jack might be in trouble since she hasn’t gotten the divorce papers back yet. I mean this is Jack his middle name is trouble. Jen and Adrianne should have alarm bells going off in their heads. Go chase after Dr Dan but one look at Jack or email or text or phone call and she will be… Read more »

Having Jack on a walkabout is preposterous! This is someone who would not be in the great outdoors for any great length of time. His character is clean cut, business savy and has tunnel vision when it comes to seeing the big picture. However, he never disregarded his children or Jennifer 10%. It seems to me that something has happened to Jack and these blogs are not coming from him. I.e. maybe the Dimera’s are behind it? It is horrible that his own daughter and sister are throwing him under the bus along with Jennifer. Alarm bells should be going… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”
