Days of our Lives is set to feature one of its most enduring stars, Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) in a standalone episode on Tuesday’s upcoming episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

While she is going through withdrawals look for Matthew Ashford to return in hallucinating “vision” form as the late Jack Deveraux, the love of Jennifer’s life.  Will he be able to get her through the other side of her ordeal?

Watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS after the jump, as well as our interview with Ashford on the red carpet at the 43rd Annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards were he discusses his return, and working with Missy Reeves again.   Then let us know if you are looking forward to seeing Matt and Melissa on-screen together in the comment section below.

Killing off Jack was a big mistake…Jack and Jen shouldve-couldve been the next Tom and Alice!!!

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 messed up and her entering the police station the day Eric was sentenced. Melissa is giving us a side to Jennifer, that yes, in soapload, addiction is overplayed, but she manages to allow us to want to see more of her journey, more of Melissa’s work, and I feel she was robbed for Supporting Actress. Be that as it may, she can submit for next year, I do not expect Jennifer’s problem to go away anytime soon. I loved how the other day, Chad told her that he knows she has a problem, and that he wouldn’t allow her to watch Thomas overnight. It’s scenes like this that allows Melissa to shine. I wasn’t into Jennifer much when she was with Daniel. Though, back in the day, I loved her with Peter, there’s specific stories that allows this underrated actress to excel in her performances, and with the return of Jack (Matthew Ashford), for the Jennifer episode, I bet we’ll get a gem of an episode. It’s Melissa’s year, you go! because you’ve got it, and it’s really great stuff. Melissa for Supporting Actress 2017!

I don’t know if I want to watch jack return for just one day. I wanted to see a full reunion. Jack and Jennifer. what a bunch of idiots TIIC are.

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 did watch. It was great. When the elevator went down I don’t remember an actual dead body. ihad forgotten when thisw show was can’t miss.I started watchinjg, when I saw it was the Missy show,I stayed, and enjoyed it.

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 pretty quick. So I got my fingers cross that this is one of those stand alones that the hour flies by and not one of those that makes you think watching paint dry would be as interesting

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 as Belle’s ex-husband.
This show really needs to pick up the pace a bit and write some compelling and original storylines.

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.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

Let us know if you agree with our pick, and what you thought of Camila’s performances, and what you think Gabi might do next, via the comment section below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
