I hope they pair her up with Daniel.

Oh dear God, please no.

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.

LadyRafa

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?

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

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!!!

ANN*H

I thought Aiden said his wife was dead

4ever DAYS

Goodbye Sarah…Hello Serena!!!

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

Aiden’s wife?

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

*Melissa…

She has me bedazzled!

CeeCee
CeeCee

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.

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

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
Chaz

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
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 better to refer to her as dead rather than explain that he never really knew her at all…She ran off to resume her Sarah life…a life Aiden don’t know!

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

…a life Aiden (*doesn’t) know!

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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.

Omar

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
Omar

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

harry

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)
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!!!

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

Now you got me hoping Serena/Sarah is true…

Max

With that red hair has to be Maggie

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

I was hoping she was Sarah Horton…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
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?

Mark

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
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)
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
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
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.

Another egg baby of Maggie’s?

LOL! I never had a problem with him or Jennifer. I just don’t care much for them as a couple. For your sanity, I hope he stays out of Serena’s orbit! lol

this is such a giddy treat

a happy dance thread thats going to course throughout Salem

Lucas…. stand ready

I hope this : or please, DAYS production… (let go Jordan and Ben ) and bring back the lovely enticing Sheryl, for the man

Patrick

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… could land in Kate’s radar with Lucas

JUST please… do not make her another paragon of virtue

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 from Diana. Their first attempt at getting the fortune was to trick Diana into marrying Victor, but it was thwarted when Roman Brady II/John Black rescued Diana from Victor’s clutches. There second attempt was to make it seem like Serena had been kidnapped and Diana was to turn over her fortune to set her mother free. This attempt was also thwarted when Diana’s assets were frozen and Diana was kidnapped by a terrorist group. Diana was rescued, and learned the horrible truth about what her mother had done to her.

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
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
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.

Missy

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!!!!!!!

WHEW! that was a close one..
I have to make a thank you sacrifice to the soap gawds for not dragging Melissa Archer (Ex-Natalie) into GH ..
They gave her to DOOL….. just to keep me happy!! 🙂

Totally Agree!!!

my sacrifice to the soap gawds:

ta-da ! drum roll

don’t drag me down : any more with your empty !

Daniel and Jennifer
Michael and Kiki

i’d throw in Sabrina, but she’s been bit so many times

my underdog will do

Jim Nelson

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.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

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

Victor’s grandsons are Brady and Shawn.

Uh…..I was kidding…..

Don’t care. Concentrate on those who we already have.

Squeeeee! Counting down the “days” to have her back in daytime. Can’t wait.

She would have been a great Stephanie.

Aidens wife died!! They had a bad marriage but stayed together for the boy. She got sick and passed away. He told Hope all that today!

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Does anyone really die on soaps? lol.

Mary SF
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 him, might explain why he says he is not available for another relationship. My point being if the the writers want Aiden’s wife to be alive, they can find a way to explain why he said she was dead when she wasn’t.

I’m so excited about this. Melissa did a terrific job as Natalie on OLTL. Can’t wait to see what she’ll do on Days. Welcome aboard Melissa.

Patricio

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!

Blake

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.

4ever DAYS

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…

Days Of Our Lives

The Can’t-Miss Week of Days of our Lives: What Happened The Night Adrienne Died? And … More Questions Answered

Make sure to catch Days of our Lives on any platform you can next week! (The President Donald Trump impeachment hearings could alter the regularly scheduled daytime time slot for the series on NBC).  For, it is a pivotal one for fans that have been following along the major storylines of the innovative time jump that started to air last November.

In one emotional week, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Justin (Wally Kurth) revisit the last day of Adrienne’s life — which happens to be last Mother’s Day.  In addition, Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) goes into labor.  While. Brady (Eric Martsolf) causes tension when he brings Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) to his parents’ townhouse for Mother’s Day.  Plus, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) gets an upsetting visit from someone from her past.  How does this all tie-in to what went down that fateful night?

The latest NBC promo for the series promises we will learn what happened to Adrienne, especially since on Friday’s episode, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) told Will(Chandler Massey) he is not responsible for his mother-in-laws death AFTER he signed the divorce papers with Sonny.   Plus major intel on what happened to Brady and Kristen’s baby and how Haley Chen (Thia Megia) died, which had left an anguished JJ (Casey Moss) turning back to drugs.

Breaking News

NBC Chairman, Paul Teledgy Says: “Days of our Lives Is Going To Carry On”

Very exciting and hopeful news Days of our Lives fans, and those of the soap genre, coming out of the NBC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California Saturday morning.

During the lead-off executive session, NBC Chairman Paul Teledgy opened up about the status of Days of our Lives with the network since no official announcement had been made on their end as to the renewal pick-up of the beloved daytime drama.

However, Teledgy revealed:  “We are in a middle of finding out very soon,” and then added, “Of course Days of Our Lives is going to carry on. We love it. Millions of Americans watch it every week. I know that will be good news for the fans.”

Teledgy also told Deadline after the executive session that negotiations are still ongoing and the series will stay on NBC, and will not be moving onto the upcoming Peacock streaming service said to bow very soon.

The chairman’s comments come nearly two months following DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday’s comments to the cast that the show had been renewed for its upcoming season.  That came on the heels that for cost-cutting measures, during the dark months, that the cast had been let- \out of their contracts.
