I hope they pair her up with Daniel.

I’d rather her character with Daniel than Jennifer.

Absolutely. They would have great chemistry.

@Monica…sorry for being so blunt, but I shudder at the thought of connecting her to Daniel. That was my gut reaction.

After thinking about it I couldn’t really come up with a viable love interest currently on the canvas except for Lucas. I wouldn’t mind her being connected to Aiden, as his not-dead wife (you know it’s coming). As attractive as all the men are in Salem, there aren’t many that make viable love interests. They are either kinda creepy or very stupid. lol.

I know she’s a bit older than them but I’d like to see her in a triangle with Ben and Abby.

OMG! Daniel would snore her to death.

Danial is always such a disappointment for me. Why? Because he looks like Will Ferrell so I keep expecting him to be really funny but instead he is just really boring.
What I wouldn’t give to see Danial padding around the hospital in an Elf costume, or better yet, appear at a hospital board meeting in his birthday suit.

I really hope she’s paired with Brady, now that’s a hot couple. He’s the only viable choice for me, because I despise nicole and don’t want her fighting that chick for any man, Eric is out. I think she’s way too young to be Aiden’s ex-not-so dead wife, but then again Theresa was too old to have been sniffing around JJ. Jennifer & Daniel need to go off and have the happy boring life, they are good together even though their a snore.

I’m assuming she’s Aiden’s wide, another bitter/scheming wife/ex-wife who will go to ridiculous lengths to hold on to a man that doesn’t love her. DAYS has been milking this stale, negative portrayal of women for decades and it’s time to retire it. How can this show be so good and so bad at the same time?

Just hope she’s not another one going after Danial or Jennifer…its like the only plotline Days can write for those two…wish she had been Sarah Horton and someone more positive in Bradys life!!!

I thought Aiden said his wife was dead

Melissaa Archer is beautiful and I can’t wait to see her talent!!!

Aiden’s wife?

You and I both, 4ever. Melissa is gorgeous and sexy. She personifies and is the embodiment of the perfect woman…from the physical aspect, that is. I’d like to think she is just as beautiful inside.

Maybe Serena is Sarah and has a split personality…more likely Aidens ex, especially after that lady bartender mentioned he wasnt wearing a ring kind of was like a hint…imo…that wifey will soon be showing up! Wouldv’e been interesting had Aiden been Sarah’s ex but Maggie and Hope wouldv’e known that!!!

Chaz
Guest

Probably Aiden’s wife. Although, I am confused….for some reason it seems they have not done a good job (purposely?) of saying she is dead or they divorced…maybe I just missed it.

And, that bartender hitting on him was a bit creepy…she seemed like she was college age….way too young.

4ever DAYS
Guest
4ever DAYS

jimh, they wouldn’t know that if she kept it a secret or has a split personality. You’re on to something…Sarah as Serena could have met Aiden and married him and gave birth to their son without Aiden knowing that she is Sarah. It could have ended quickly, therefore, Maggie and the rest would have no idea. Serena really can be Sarah!!! Thursday’s episode did have Maggie warning Dr. Dan about Eve, including the tidbit about Eve running down Sarah with a stolen car. Thursday’s episode also had Aiden opening up to Hope about his “dead wife”. He could feel it’s… Read more »

jimh, maybe Sarah’s split personality began with being hit by Eve and/or that will be the basis for Sarah’s/Serena’s hatred for Eve. Eve and Maggie already clashed a couple times.

She is a wonderful actress and all of the long time fans of DAYS will see that..So happy she is back in Daytime TV..I am happy she in not a recast but an original character..Sorry for those hoping otherwise, but we need to move forward and do recasting when its been a long time that character is being on the show or when its just story diictated.

Omar

‘is” not a recast…do recasting when its been a long time that character “was on the show”..EXCUSE my spelling.

I think Melissa Archer is a perfect choice. She is beautiful, distinctive looking and very talented.
I was thinking she would have made a much better Nina than Michelle Stafford.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

She wouldve made a better Nina plus the bonus wouldve been having her work with ME again…they had great chemestry over at OLTL!!!

Now you got me hoping Serena/Sarah is true…

With that red hair has to be Maggie

I was hoping she was Sarah Horton…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Wouldve preferred Sarah Horton…Serena could be Aidens unstable estranged wife?…hopefully not someone from Danials past or another Beetch to go after Jen…been there, done that…someone connected to Clyde?…an old flame of Rafes?…another Dimera?…John and Kristens love child or too old?

I think she will be Aiden’s not-so-dead wife and Chase’s mother. I can’t wait to see her. Loved her on One Life To Live.

Lola

Not so sure who she could be related to but I think she would be paired up great with either Daniel or Brady.. 🙂 Maybe she is related to Shane and Kimberly… their daughter too?

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Shane and Kim dont have any other daughters…and with Eve and Thressa plenty enough to deal with, im sure Mr. and Mrs. D. are forever grateful they never had another devil daughter…Note: Kim is Eve’s stepmom; Gabrielle (4get last name) was Eve’s bio mom!!!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Be that as it may, jimh, ….it really bothers me when TPTB introduce characters who are merely a few years younger than their parents. Kassie DePaiva is only 6 years younger than Charles Shaughnessy, who plays Eve’s father. I know it’s just a soap and as such it has poetic license, as it were, but seriously?

Emily
Guest
Emily

I think she’ll be Aiden’s ex-wife. I think Aiden and Hope are going to realize their feelings very soon and as we all know what happens next….Looking forward to December 5th:) Here comes Serena!!

Thanks Mr. Fairman for the updated info. As she settles into her new DOOL role, hoping you’re going to interview Ms. Archer as well.

there are so many moments of cause celebre going on here :

Serena can and should be Aiden ex-wife… Kristian Alfonso has statured Hope aimed salute for whet… so hasn’t Aiden

Serena … could turn Brady already HOT : steamy twosome

Serena Coleville was married to Philip Coleville, and was the mother of Diana. Serena was after a mysteriouscomputer disk that Victor was also after. When she beat Victor to the disk he vowed revenge on her. After she got the disk she began to mine a valuable mineral that the disk gave the location to. When Roman II/John Black and Diana began to see each other she tried to kill him. Roman II/John Black survived and arrested Serena, who he later learned was Diana’s mother. After Philip Coleville was killed Serena and Victor Kiriakis began plotting to steal the Coleville fortune… Read more »

By her picture she looks like she is way too young to be playing Diana Coleville’s mother— a granddaughter of that character you mentioned perhaps???

Missy

I thought the same thing about the age, but I also thought it’s odd that they would use the same name of a character. What do you think?

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

The article here didn’t state her last name, just her first–so if they are repeating a first name, I think they just lost track and forgot they already had character named Serena. If they are using the same last name, then I think she must be like I said earlier a granddaughter or a name sake of the original owner of the name. It would be nice if she was related to the Colevilles– it could be fun to have that family back on canvas.

Definitely! 😉

Hmmmm wonder if she could “Serena”, could really be Greta von Amberg, then she would have ties to Hope and John!!! Last I checked, Greta was proven NOT to be John Black’s daughter but I think she is!!!!!!!

Maybe she will be Aiden’s wife whom he refers to as “dead” but maybe she’s not really dead and he knows it and that is why he fights his feelings for Hope.
Or, maybe she will be the grandson of Victor who left town years ago to have a sex change operation.

Victor never had a grandson leave town to have a sex change.

Victor’s grandsons are Brady and Shawn.

Mary SF

There have been a couple times when Aiden slipped and talk about his wife in the present tense, as if she was still alive– he might be telling everyone she is dead, perhaps “being sick” meant she was committed to an institution or is in jail or the very popular soap coma and was easier for him to tell his son, she was deceased. Or maybe she pulled a Krammer vs Krammer and just abandoned them, but instead of telling his son he was deserted by his mother he told him she passed away. Her being alive, but “dead” to… Read more »

So happy for Ms. Archer! She held her own working against Erika Slezak and Ilene Kristen as her two moms from her first day on OLTL! These ladies were soap Royalty since the 1970s!

So we only have to wait three months before we see her on the show? Not the normal six months? That’s so great, I miss seeing her. I love it when favorites from the past are cast on the remaining soaps, there’s so much talent there.

I can see her in a triangle with Abby and Ben, especially since Sami will be gone soon and they will need a new person in their story.

Melanie will be on screen in November. She’ll be the third point to the triangle…most likely.

Don’t c care who she will be related to, just happy shd will be tgere. Missed her from OLTL. so far there are 4 cast members from OLTL on Days and General Hospital. Love having the chance to see them. They are all such good actors . I have always been a fan of Days, but am now also a fan of GH because of those OLTL actors now on GH. Days and GH: Keep ’em coming…

‘Queen Sugar’ Gets Season 6 Renewal by OWN; Ahead of its Season 5 Premiere

A month before its 5th season is set to bow, Queen Sugar has been renewed for its sixth season by OWN as it was announced on Thursday.  The first of its 10 episode season will drop on February 16th.

After having to shut down production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it gave DuVernay time to retool the series remaining season episode and to incorporate the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer and the general election. Production on Season 5 of the series did not begin until September of last year and ran till December 2020.

In a statement, Oprah Winfrey shared: “The way Ava creates space to allow these characters to embody real-world experiences is television at its finest and we are proud to continue this ground-breaking series. I hear from so many people that they see themselves in the Bordelon family, and my hope is that through this kind of storytelling the hearts and minds of people are opened for a deeper understanding and empathy of one another.”
