Melissa Archer Confirmed OUT At Days of our Lives!

Courtesy/NBC

No more Serena Mason on Days of our Lives!  The report from Daytime Confidential that they heard from their sources that former One Life to Live favorite Melissa Archer (Ex-Natalie) was let-go from her latest soap role in the town of Salem has been confirmed as true.

In this week’s issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, they reveal that Archer has finished up her final episodes at DAYS, and that the actress who first aired in December of 2014, will still air for the next five months, as she recently wrapped.

Archer’s character of Serena Mason was an old flame of Eric Brady’s (Greg Vaughan) and seemingly came to Salem to rekindle their romance that started when he was in a third world country working as a photographer, and she a top notch journalist ans medical researcher.

Somehow viewers have had to watch the talented Archer saddled with a story about an elephant statue she was trying to get from the object of her desire, Eric.   For months, fans watched Serena’s plight to get the statue and what was inside of it. Former DAYS head writer Chris Whitesell and Gary Tomlin who had worked with Archer at One Life to Live were responsible for bringing Archer on to the show, which also reunited her with former OLTL cast mate, Kassie DePaiva (Eve)!

So, what do you think about the Melissa being let-go? Do you think Serena’s story was written poorly and that Archer’s talents were wasted and not utilized properly? Would you like to see Melissa on another network soap? If so, which one? Comment below!

Not surprised. The writing let her down. She was wasted in a dud of a story. With changes coming to DAYS,I hope the show will return to it’s former glory.

I agree too. Was so excited to see her come to show. Storyline RIDICULOUS

I plan on no longer watching Days. Although I had come back to Days when OLTL was cancelled, the way Melissa has been treated has left a bad taste in my mouth. It is apparent the show doesn’t want new fans, so it will get its wish.

Smart move, Sheila. I quit “Days of Our Lives” way back in 1989 when I was only 18. I had been watching since I was 6. It had already peaked in terms of quality by ’88/’89.

I Think With Wally Leaving Gh They Should Bring Her To The Gh She’d Be Great

Jeremy

It’s a real shame that GH couldn’t secure Wally Kurth (Ned) with a contract. He’s so adorable with Olivia.
Anyhow, I would definitely welcome Melissa Archer on GH, to be paired up once again, with Michael Easton. However, the cast is so full, IF GH made the necessary cuts to it’s cast, I’d for sure be up for Melissa joining GH.

It’s also a real shame that DAYS didn’t specifically solidify a plan for the Serena character. Many other posters previously stated that Melissa should have been cast as Sarah Horton. DAYS made a mistake with the dynamic Melissa Archer, hopefully they’ve learned their lesson.

Good idea, Jeremy. I don’t watch DOOL but I loved Melissa and Michael on OLTL! Maybe the cast can lose ‘NuKiki’ to make some room.

Marianne

I completely agree . I never thought Melissa fit on Days. She is a wonderful actress. Bring her to GH and reunite her with Easton. Long overdue!!!

The only reason she would be brought to GH now is to try and make Silas interesting.

OH, YES SHE IS ABSOLUTELY NEEDED ON GH & SILAS(ME) NEEDS HER DESPERATELY TO MAKE HIS CHARACTER MORE INTERESTING!!!!!! IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN!!!!!!! THEY ARE JUST SOOOOOOO GOLDEN TOGETHER!!!!!!!!

The very last thing GH needs right now is another new face and another new character; they need to cut their own cast down by miles.

ABSOLUTELY WITH WALLY KURTH & ANTHONY GEARY BOTH LEAVING THAT FREES UP A LOT OF MONEY MELISSA CERTAINLY CAN & WILL COME TO GH I KNOW IT!!!!!!! SO SHE & MICHAEL CAN BE REUNITED!!!!!!!!!!! SILAS (ME) SOOOOOOOOOOOOO NEEDS HIS MELISSA WHATEVER CHARACTER? SHE MAY OR MIGHT PLAY!!!!!!!!!

Mary SF

Well I’m not surprise. It makes no sense for soaps to bring in a big name soap actor if they don’t have a real story for them. It doesn’t matter how popular their former character was on another soap, the actor has to fit in to the one they are in. Just banking on fans to watch because they are fans of a certain actor, might work in films, but in daytime, the story is the star. It always was and always will be. And in her case her story bit the big one. Sorry for the actress losing a gig, not sorry the character will be gone.

Gosh, poor Melissa. She should be wearing a T shirt which reads,”Hello, I must be Going.” That WAS fast and I blinked and missed her.
It’s a shame because I was about to start watching Days too.

Days didn’t deserve her. Writers gave her crap story. She never had a chance.

Lew S

I’m sorry, but I agree with you. Melissa Archer is a very good and capable actor and deserved better. I truly hope the new regime at DAYS can turn this show around and give us better stories and acting. They have a top notch cast to do it.

suzazq

They did same with ChrishellStrausse! They wasted her talent. Give her a storyline where she is crazy or angry and you got your girl. I have to say they are wasting Cassie DePaiva also. This Eve story is way drawn out….get her a man. Or a job. Or a life

Jim Anderson
Jim Anderson

Have to agree with you 100 per cent on that – the character of Eve really does need a life. HOW much longer can they possibly drag out this stupid storyline about her and JJ and how she doesn’t want him with Paige. There isn’t even any dimension to her character shown or hinted at – what made her this way, was she abused as a child, I mean, SOMETHING. NO one is completely bitchy all the time – she’s too conniving all the time, like a silly cartoon character – I have seen other alumni from All My Children and One Life to Live just not make it in Salem and honestly, I blame the writers and frankly, the PACE of the whole show is just tooooo drawwwwn out. They need to get on the stick and get moving already.

Llanviewer717

I am sorry to hear this. I love Melissa and feel she did a great job with what she was given. I do feel her talent was wasted. The story has moved much too slowly. The reason for her going after the elephant statue and the villain she’s working with should have been revealed much sooner.

I wish Melissa much success in her future.

Jim Anderson
Jim Anderson

Yeah, people have said even the Elephant wants to forget this storyline and everyone knows an elephant never forgets.
She was believable in the role but they really need to move things along. Maybe the show just takes actors on for six months and see how fans react, I really don’t know. But no, I did not feel the storyline they gave her was terribly compelling.

Do you think Serena’s story was written poorly and that Archer’s talents were wasted and not utilized properly? Absolutely!!! The elephant story was one of the worst stories I have every watched on any soap — and I’ve been watching soaps since the mid-1970’s.
Melissa Archer was fabulous on OLTL and I truly hope she can find a soap that will give her the quality story she deserves.

Once again, I think Days sabotaged themselves by taping so far in advance they don’t get the opportunity to measure the audience appeal of a plot before it’s too late. Even if they just cut the advance taping to 3 months in advance, TPTB would have seen this story flying as high as a lead balloon.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Carolyn – I agree with everything you said. If DAYS is not picked up next year, I would fault the 5-6 month advance taping who-ha, it’s completely ineffective in this day and age. DAYS must act now – and, make HUGE changes to last another 5 years. They must begin with this taping who-ha. At least, adjustments to the writing team has been made.

mollie
mollie

Carolyn, All excellent points! My gods, the elephant story moved at a pace that put everyone to sleep…and NOTHING could be done to adjust this dud story line because it was already ” in the can” 6 months in advance.

Jim Anderson
Jim Anderson

Even a real LIVE elephant could move faster than this stupid storyline has moved.
This story needs to be stuffed in a TRUNK.

By the way that was a joke….not a very good one but a joke.

Diamonds in an Elephant that some kid didn’t want to give…IF YOU DON’T LEGGO THAT STATUE..I AIN’T PLAYIN KID…the only real opposition she would have got would have been from lil’ Sami..AKA..Cierra….Uhhh Serena…I dealt with SamiBrady..you REALLLLLYYYY don’t scare me…I LOVE LOVE that kid Parker he is goofy as a kid should be…WHY DIDN’T CIERRA HAVE IT????

davlestev1
davlestev1

That would have added a whole other dimension to Serena going up against Cierra…that little girl is QUITE THE HOOT!!!…Coronation Street let Jack P. Sheperd grow into horrible butte David Platt…though Gail…his mom…welll…let Cierra stay and keep the actress for as long as you can…AND WHY DIDN’T SHE HAVE THE ELEPHANT…BYE FELICIA…the exiting writers…although they did keep me entertained…just like on Survivor..win immunity or talk your self up in Tribal Council…LOL

I have a teacher friend who actually wrote a student a referral and ordered them out of his English class when they used text speech in an essay.
On the reason why part, he wrote on the referral slip, “Cuz U R acting like a dummy and U R not in, fact, a dummy.”

From your lips to God’s ear. I so want OLTL to come back after the legal mess is settled. I watched Y&R for 2 years and just could not get used to it. Days is better executed and, except for the elephant story, moves at a better pace. I won’t be satisfied until our beloved OLTL is back in business.

Eileen Hargis

Too much money needed for OLTL to return.

Agreed. I want to see her on GH as well. Fans have waited a long time. I want to see her with Michael as well.

Ann

That would be the worst possible thing to happen to pair Easton and Archer again. I loved when he became Silas so the NcBain/Natalie baggage could be dumped for good. And that baggage needs to stay dumped. There is no reason to bring Arxhet on and no reason for another Easton and Archer pairing ever again. That ship sailed long ago.

Lou Piikes

She was a good actress saddled with a bad storyline

Pamela Sellarole
Pamela Sellarole

I could not agree more, Mr. Piikes. I wanted to like Serena–love her name. I’m writing my second novel, and my main character’s name is Serena, but Melissa Archer would be too young to play her. However, I think she would be great on Y&R–especially if they brought in a sister for Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), or perhaps even a third Summers sister, a baby sister neither Phyllis nor Avery knew (or perhaps a long-lost secret daughter of Phyllis’s). There are so many places she would fit there, if the writers would use their imaginations a little more. But today, most soap writers are content to recycle old staple plots rather than branch out with something new. PASSIONS was the most innovative soap by far, and it only lasted a few seasons.

kathryn63
kathryn63

Y&R & B&B WOULD NOT BE GOOD SOAPS FOR HER TO GO TO THEY WOULD BE AS BAD AS DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!! GH IS THE SOAP FOR HER!!!!!!!!!!! NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!!!!!!!! SHE & MICHAEL (EASTON) NEED TO BE REUNITED ASAP!!!!!!! I WANT IT SOOOOOOOOOOOOO BADDDDDLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Unfortunate, but true, Pamela. We all agree that Melissa could have been cast as a different character as many fans have said, or had wished, when it was first announced she would join the DAYS’ cast. I have only been watching for 7 years, thus I do not have first-hand experience as many of you have.
Her role as Natalie on OLTL was played excellently and with flair. But, as Aden said,…’that ship has sailed’. Reminiscing is good for the soul….sadly, it is not realistic, sigh!
PASSIONS could not have lasted more than it did. I was actually surprised it ran for so long.
I was still in College….however, by the end, it had become so ludicrous and out-of-this-word weird and satanic, I did not know whether to laugh or vomit.
Pamela….I love your ideas concerning Y&R….amazing scenarios; imaginative and so fitting. I am not surprised you are a writer. Good luck with your book.

Kathy Alford

SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS AS NATALIE ON OLTL WHICH IS WHY SHE NEEDS & HAS TO GO TO GH!!!!!!! SHE NEEDS TO BE RE-UNITED WITH MICHAEL EASTON (ME) ASAP!!!!!!!! SHE WILL BE HEADING TO GH I FEEL IT IN EVERY BONE OF MY BODY!!!!!!!!!

richard

What a waste of talent, they should’ve listened to fans and cast her as Sarah Horton!!!! Terrible miscast!!!!!!!! Now they need to bring back Swamp Girl, aka Greta for Eric!!! She has unfinished business with Eric and Nicole and she’s John’s daughter!! Or she could get involved with Rafe!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

When it was announced she was joining the show, i said i hoped she played Sarah Horton…i bet as Sarah she wouldve been a hit with viewers as long as it didnt involve that lame elephant statue storyline!!!

A relationship with Rafe would have been perfect for her. Rafe needs to be with someone. He seems to be out of place lately. He needs a love interest soon.

Melissa Archer being fired is beyond upsetting. They saddled her with an awful story which she delivered on and then fired her. There are other terrible stories going on as well, but I feel Melissa is the one being punished. I’m so over this show.

Jackie

I love Melissa as a actress , I loved to watch oltl and I started watching Days because she joined the cast. I will no longer watch Days of Our Life.The Best soap out there is the Bold and Beautiful, or The Young and Restless. GH is horrible and stupid.and I would hope she does not join GH cast.

Mateo
Mateo

I, myself, am jumping with joy. She was one of the worst actors on the show along with her ridiculous story. She brought the quality of the show down and she managed to overact in every scene. I wish they would take the actor who plays Eric with her. He is awful. He is always angry at some one. He couldn’t have been a very good priest cause he was always judging someone. C’mon DAYS get rid of him too. Make this a winning move.

I like Eric with Nicole myself. As has often been said it’s the writing. The actors do what they can with what they’ve been given.

I agree with you. I have never seen this actress before but I didnt like her from day one. Her acting abilities did not impress me at all. The story line was pathetic and dull. I would guess the writers could do better but maybe not since the hot story line with Sami and EJ are not there. Glad she is going.

Sadly, the Same situation as Chrishell – great actress and performer, just an uninspiring story. I hadn’t seen Melissa’s work before Days but she seems great and very talented. The actress is definitely a loss for the show but perhaps not so much the character…

Patrick
Patrick

i’m glad you brought up Chrishell Stause, ex-Jordan

she, along with: Sarah Brown, ex-Madison
Tamara Braun: ex-Taylor Walker

and now, Melissa Archer, ex-Serena

I really wanted to like Melissa Archer… WRITING be damned at times… yeah?

the one that will always gnaw at me… and I’m in disbelief that the show continues to “build” and figure him in ALL the storys and canvas abound

how big is Sean Christian?

I am simply livid… GET RIDE OF …. him ?!?!

just these last coupla days… he’s lording his self-righteous dullard self… at JJ for his “affair” with Eve
he was lambasting Jennifer… for not sharing with him about what she knows about what’s going on with JJ and Eve

with John Anniston’ Victor at the hosp… when Victor was upset that he wasn’t notified about Brady being in the hospital…. and Daniel lit in to him some

where does the DAYS production get off ? or not understand… that Dr. dullard dumb down Jonas is ruining the cast cohesive knit gelling and bringing their A game…

if any one needs to go… it’s Daniel…. my god

Melanie … the nancy drew … is beyond lack… is just as dull as her father…

thank the stars Suzanne Rogers has so much presence and a RICH history with the show… that she has the same trait… but isn’t in the least overbearing

I’m sorry for Serena… the writing STINKS

it’s most saving grace; is Paul and Sonny and their families associated with these two

Guy Wilson’ Will doesn’t lend much

positive tune-in : seeing “Kristen” baby…. it’s coming

Patrick
Patrick

they need to bring in to salvage , a new chief of staff… or surgeon… to replace Shawn Christian

I’d love it if Vincent Irizarry, ex-Dr. David Hayward, AMC would come on as a younger brother, incognito, of Stefano

what a force of power and recognition… take over

what better place for the continual at odds with the effervescent Salem’ites… a cloud of mystery hangs in the balance…DiMera threshold

Patrick
Patrick

another one they let go too soon :

Lucas was on fire !

Jade Harlow : ex-Sheryl

what can I say… she had so much presence and carried her own weight as it were… just radiant…. Lucas needs her

I’d love it if Shawn D. came back… as a possible love interest for Abs ? DAYS sure is pushing Chad and Abs “again” is this a clear indication that Ben’s anger management is getting the best of him? “again” YES ! he’s got to go
Jason Cook was the bomb… a surefire hit if they brought him back!

why not bring back Christie Clark, ex-Carrie? she’d be perfect … and again… would light up Rafe’alicious.. Galen Gerring ! ooh la la this twosome would WIN,,, a core familial heroine.. to take the place of Sami

along with the Donovans for this family to party and take over Salem

I hope that aussie hunk has something up his sleeve/armor to take over and do in Shawn Cristian Daniel

Max

Patrick, Bad news for the show’s “saving grace”. Freddie Smith (Sonny) is leaving too.

I agree that the Serena storyline was boring. I’m sure Melissa is a talented actress, and she isn’t responsible for the poor writing. I hope she will find a better part on another show. It’s too bad that Days films the episodes so far in advance. Because of this, they cannot take the viewer’s response to a poor storyline and make any quick changes. I’m glad there are new writers on the show. I hope they will give the actors more exciting and better storylines. I’ve been a fan for years. Even during the last sweeps, I was bored. But- I keep watching. Well, I do fast forward more than I actually watch- truth be told.

padrake

I loved Melissa on OLTL, so, I was so cited when she walked onto the DAYS’ s stage. I suppose my expectations were too high.
The same goes for Kassie….she does not deserve her present storyline.

Patricio

Big loss of talent for the show! To step into the role as Victoria Lord Riley’s long lost daughter after being raised by Roxy Balsom, two of the greatest actress’ of the genre was no easy task and proved her acting chops.

Days did not write for her, therefore she had no where to go. It’s a shame DAYS has done this before and lost great talent.

alistaircrane

Glad to see Days cutting the dead weight as it nears the 50th anniversary. Days needs to focus on core families and supercouples. Bringing back Bo and Patch is a great first start. Now bring back Jack, Carrie, Austin, and Billie!

Days also needs to ax Eve (or at least bring back the original), Paige, Melanie, Daniel, Ben, Rafe, Clyde, Xander, and Theresa.

They should have brought her in with a more intense story line and made her the new Sami.

Ali

I liked the actress, however, the story line did go south, unfortunately. I realize that when they bring in new characters it helps to have some tie into Salem, like Paul. I do like real stories and the outrageous ones. They could have gone a bit more outrageous tieing it back to the DiMeras and old time loyal fans would love that stuff. It is a shame, but I guess that happens. Since this is the 50th year anniversary us loyal fans have way more vested in seeing Bo and Patch come back right now.

In real life I wish her well, and in soap world you never know. “Just like the sands in an hour glass, so are the days of our lives!”

Trouble with that is GH is already loaded with actresses and she isnt cheap. Ill be seeing her next month and find out what her plans are.

Harry

Eileen, I hate to break it to you but you know the characters on your television screen can not hear you and therefore, they cannot answer your questions.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

Gee, Harry, I was referring to Melissa Archer, the actress, not her character on Days. Ill be seeing Melissa, the real live person next month and will ask her whats next for her. Whatever gave u the idea that I was talking about a soap character?????

Harry
Harry

Eileen, you seriously need to take your One a Day Plus Iron because clearly you are irony deficient.
It was a joke predicated on you casually announcing that you will ask the actress in person and therefore implying that you and she are close personal friends.
Frankly, when people on soap boards make such implications I don’t quite believe them.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

Harry, Im still laughing at your post. If u want to believe that no one ever knows any of these soap actors personally, just hide in ur little cocoon of disbelief. I met Melissa several years ago because we share a mutual friend, Tom Pelphrey. U might recognize his name. Tom thought we would be good friends if we got to know one another so Ive gone to Soapfest for several years and certainly can ask her about her current plans. If u knew me at all, u would know just how many actors I do call friends. Saw Scott Reeves and Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson 2 weeks ago when I went home to Nashville for a few days. Whatever made u such a pessimist anyway??

Eileen Hargis

Frank and Ron know Mellissa Archer well. They worked with her a long time on OLTL. However even tho she relocated to L.A. they never approached her for GH. Thats tells u their budget cant afford her longtime.

For being a so called friend you aren’t very friendly when talking about your friend Melissa…I wanted to quote one of your even unfriendly posts below but this will do…you really don’t want your “friend” at GH..

Eileen Hargis

Never said anything about not wanting her at GH. I said the money wasnt there for her for a lengthy contract.

THAT DOES NOT MEAN THEY WON’T!!!!!! AND THEIR BUDGET CAN AFFORD HER LONG-TERM!!!!!! IF THEY CAN AFFORD BM,MS ROHO, ME THEN THEY CAN CERTAINLY AFFORD MELISSA!!!!!! SO SHE ME CAN BE RE-UNITED!!!!!! IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN I KNOW IT!!!!!!!! PLEASE SOAP GODS LET MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!!!

The whole thing is stupid should have left her in Africa and eric should have stayed a priest

I blame the writers, Ms Archer is a talented actress and they wrote a lame storyline for her–She should be happy that she is out —she must have been embarrassed what the writers gave her–I hoped when she left she told those writers that they sucked–Days lost a great actress and I hope we see her on another

from the first time she appeared on the show, I didn’t like story line and also her acting. seemed she was always wide eyed.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

I got the impression she only wants to create a new role, not rehash old couplings. She told several at the table she started at OLTL so very young, 19 or so, loved the show and the folks she worked with but it was gone and she looked ahead, not back. Doesnt sound like shes pining to do ME again.

I loved Melissa Archer on One Life To Live but on Days they never gave her good story lines as the one they gave her was the same o same o. If they had of ended the elephant storyline and let her and Eric and Nichole had a love triangle would have been better! She’s a great actress!

Debra Ann Chescoe

I loved the intrigue she brought to the beginning of her performance…..but totally hated the dragging on and on…….just left us viewers bored……wish Melissa the best!

she got a weak and quite frankly very annoying character.

I had hoped that Serena would have had a DIFFERENT connection to Eric since Melissa does bear a slight resemblance to Allie Sweeney. A third “twin” would have been much more intriguing way to go with her rather than to waste her talents in a dull jewel theft storyline.

Melissa does not bear a slight resemblance to AS Melissa is far prettier.

I loved her on Days..her story was pretty much the only one I liked..She and GV were so good together and I was loving her with Zander…what kind of ptb give someone only 3 months to catch on..I had read that they said GT fired her…no way do I believe this since MA followed DH for 2 weeks on twitter then stopped following her March 4 so I would assume that is the day she was fired. Days loss my loss…I wish she would go to GH ……I hope she gets to keep her wardrobe cuz it was quite awesome..

Sheila

Same here. With her leaving it only serves to show me how little of the show I actually like. She was one of the bright spots.

Anne

Melissa is a talented actress that should be grabbed by GH. She could come in not directly opposite Cylus, but after all the typical round and round the bend of soaps wind up with him in a year or so. Wouldn’t that be epic?

I never liked the storyline. It was boring. I dont know who she is. I never watched OLTL so I can’t say anything against her as an actress one way or the other but this storyline did not help me like her.

Debbie

I don’t like her….. they need some love stories on this show…. to many villians these days. no one is smiling on this hsow any more…. to much hate. losing patience with it…. losing interet fast. eve. all of these women…. have watch the show since it came on. but i’m bout done.

I was so excited when I heard Melissa Archer was coming to Days. I was a huge fan of OLTL and I would have liked a better character for her on Days. The elephant story is kind of dull. Too bad Serena couldn’t have had the spunk of Natalie on OLTL. It is not Melissa Archer’s fault that the story line was boring. They really dropped the ball here. Let’s face it, most of the story lines are kind of boring lately. Good thing they shook things up, but I am not happy that Melissa Archer is leaving.

Sarah

I had high hopes for Serena when she first came in. Love interest for Eric, shook up Nicole and Eric even more, she was some type of medical researcher and then they switched it to some type of journalist to fit into the elephant story that well is a giant elephant in the room, er storyline. It made no sense, it is there for filler because whatever storyline that was considered was more than blatantly abandoned and we got, this. Shame on the writers for doing this. But, they don’t like new blood. Again, look at what they did with Jan, Shawn, Belle, etc in there day. A chance to bring in those in my teen years and the butchered the heck out of it and not one of them stayed.

I hope they are smart and keep Melanie and Theresa on and going. They have the chemistry and blood to get this derailing train back on the tracks. And for the love of all things good, Nicole, even Theresa could be fill Sami’s shoes, so let one of them!

she never had a chance with the stupid storyline.
Days need brand new writers.
Making John father to someone else is also a stupid storyline.
Sick of Will being such an idiot.
Rafe needs a love story now.
Why Lucas and Andrienne? She should stay happy with her hubby.
No couples are happy on Days.
Bo coming back will screw Hopes happiness.
Days will be cancelled as soon as there contract is up. My thoughts anyway.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

Days just got new writers. Try to keep up.

Shirl Gallo
Shirl Gallo

The new writers are old writers coming back. I do keep up.
Now to hear Freddie Smith is leaving and Molly Burnett leaving makes it even worse in my opinion. If they don’t bring back some of the ones they let go mark my word Days will be cancelled. Or they can start a whole new show with a new name etc.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

When u say “new writers” all soaps just cycle writers from previous regimes. Brand new young writers have to come up thru the ranks of breakdown, etc. So it takes years for a new one to emerge.

Allison Hansen

Really too bad especially with the recent addition of Scottish hottie Paul Telfer. “Xander” and “Serena” look absolutely fantastic together. Sure the elephant story dragged and dragged, but I also think fan response has been super negative towards the new characters. Resentful postings abound from fans on social media sites that want nothing to do with anyone “new” and only want the same old characters in the same old storylines and romances. Soaps need a breath of fresh characters in the mix to evolve stories. The bigger elephant in the room may be a fanbase that rejects cchange.

Sheila
Sheila

You are so right! She was getting it from Ericole fans who really don’t even care about Eric, they just wanted Nicole to have a man. LOL

I guess it’s good she’s leaving before Days is cancelled. I guess she didn’t fill that coveted 68-90 demographic.

Mia

LOLOL Seriously, DOOL is in need of an executive with courage who will mercifully just pull the trigger and put it out of its misery. MA was a breath of fresh air on the show in the beginning and the IIC squandered all of that potential. No MA on DOOL, no me as a new viewer. But it is all for the best as I’m in the 18-45 demo they are certainly not courting. And by the way….the chem between SEX is off the charts. Serena and Xander would have been wonderful shaking things up for that goody two shoes drip Dr. Dan, Nicole, and sanctimonious emotionally constipated Eric. Too bad so sad another opportunity lost. Best of luck to MA! She was def too good for DOOL.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.
