Melissa Reeves storyline is riveting, it’s not shoved in your face, it’s been done in a way that allows this story to stretch out longer, which is true to life, these things, addictions can haunt someone for years! in soap load, a story such as this would move quickly, and I think that since Melissa Reeves is not front-burner like Hope, this allows Melissa to dig deep as a creative artist, and she is knocking her scenes out of the park. Melissa had amazing work with Greg (ex-Eric), those scenes were WOW!!! so good. I loved seeing Jennifer’s hair all… Read more »

Watch, Janet, watch!

He’s appearing in 5 or so episodes, not necessarily back to back. It could be a trial run. If the masses watch, then he may be asked to return in a larger capacity.

I am having mixed feelings of Days using these stand alone episodes of late. On one hand giving the whole episode to one character does allow the writers to go further into depth and allows the actor time to really act. The stand alone episode with Abby and Ben was great, the stand alone episode featuring Aiden has its moments– and hence the problem, unless really compelling stuff come off the screen like when Sami and EJ had their stand alone episode about his cheating on her, these hour long episodes featuring one character the one show can get dull… Read more »

Days is doing what Guiding Light did like a decade ago, they had special episodes on Wednesdays focusing on one character or couple.

I guess my feelings are also somewhat ambivalent regarding these stand alone episodes – it makes the flow seem somehow disjointed in a way (of the show in general) but I suppose it’s not hurting a show that moves at a snail’s pace anyway. Don’t misunderstand me, I am aware that soaps move at a slow rate, but this show takes that fact to an extreme. I like the character of Jennifer, and I liked the players around her – and the scenes were well-acted……..it’s Belle and Phillip that I find exceedingly dull and uninteresting for some reason as well… Read more »

I’m not excited having Jack back just for a few episodes. You know how many horrible actors you can get rid of to bring Jack back for good? Especially with the younger set (looking at you Ciara!)

Matt Ashford is exactly what Days needs now. He is brilliant and together with Missy they will bring back that old magic

I don’t really like these standalone eps. Wish Jack was not dead and returned to Salem. His family sure needs him!

Matt and Missy are magic together as Jack & Jennifer, despite the fact that they’ve received such terrible writing over the years (particularly all of the times Jack “died”). It’s like watching Stephen & Mary Beth as Steve & Kayla. Fantastic actors, nuanced performances. Their shared history, their chemistry, and the ways they bring out the best in each other made them such great partners. I really don’t understand why Days doesn’t keep Matt around for good.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
