Molly Burnett is in the news this weekend! First, it appears that Burnett is set to return again as Melanie Jonas on Days of our Lives this January.

According to a report from Jason47.com, “Burnett’s length of stay is not yet announced. Will she be around for an extended stay, or to just help wrap up the Daniel storyline?”

As DAYS fans know, it has been bantered about that Shawn Christian (Daniel) is exiting the series shortly, and since Melanie plays his on-screen daughter it makes sense she may be back for his swan song.

In addition, Molly is also appearing on tonight’s (Dec 20) episode of CSI: Cyber reprising her role of Nina Moore!  In the episode which airs on CBS (9PMET/PT)  they tease: After an innocent bystander is killed when dozens of ATMs suddenly spew money into the street, the Cyber team investigates the bank heist that is orchestrated by a real-life cyber Robin Hood.

So, glad to hear Molly is coming back to DAYS?  Will it be a short visit, or a longer one?  Share your thoughts below!

Melanie returns to attend Dr. Dans funeral after he is killed by a drunk driving Erik…when Erik is only given probation, a vengeful Melanie goes beserk and attempts to shoot Erik but by mistake accidentally shoots her grandma Maggie who is temporarily paralyzed…Melanie has a breakdown and is sent to a sanitarium and a remorseful Erik leaves town and reenters the priesthood!!!…just kidding!!!!!

you are a marvel ; love your plot points

this would be excellent stuff for Suzanne Rogers!

let’s give her some meaty material

perhaps along the line she self-medicates … addiction… then Victor truly does have a stroke

“Mother Horton”… wouldn’t this render all the Denizens of Salem… including fans alike

that’s okay that’s probably better than what the current writing team will come up with. You left out the part however where they all have a funeral in
Fake Leaf Park.

That fake park looks like as bad as that fake back yard on that old Brady Bunch series…must have some connection to the name Brady being Bradys on both shows…lol

Yes! Let’s hope that Molly is returning in a contract roll like Nadia Bjorlin is as Chloe! I love Melanie way better of course, her acting is superb, and 2 Emmy nominations don’t just stand for nothing 😉 can’t wait for her to be back!

I am all for her returning FT. I know so many are not, but I really like Molly Burnett and Melanie. I don’t care what other people say. I would like to see her and Phillip rekindle something. Keep her away from Brady. I am liking him with Theresa.

i swear to you… after this past monday and tuesday ep’

this is a big stretch…. even with new writers

they (writing team) certainly don’t seem to be having much affect with the SORAS teens… plus; Belle, Phillip, Shawn D., Claire, Lani, Nicole, Eric, Jennifer, Daniel

SHE ” ONLY ” needs to return to see her Dr. Dullard Dad … killed off

if… she is brought on long term… i’d tell to stop the tilting her head to the side and enough of the sweaters off the shoulder… and seriously! Brady is way out of your league… the furrowed expressions…. are ugh!

I totally agree with what you say about her being out of Brady’s league, the head tilting, sweaters off the shoulder and the overacting.

I do not wish her on Brady and even though I don’t like Melanie I can tolerate her when she’s with Gabi.

UGH please make this a very short return. Had to stop watching Days between this one and the Sami hour there was way too much overacting and destruction of the more interesting.

Days has to stop propping the Jonas’ all of them

The propping will end with a Jonahs heart stopping! The return of Melanie (and Chloe with Philip?) signals the end of the Jonahs family.

My guess: Daniel is killed by a drunk driver. Eric is blamed, but the culprit is really Maggie who turned back to booze over Caroline moving into the Kiriakis mansion. Melanie returns for her father’s funeral. Chloe returns for Parker. In the process, Philip is revealed to be Parker’s true father and Melanie leaves, but may return when her grandmother is sentenced to rehab for the death of Dr. Dan.

You are pretty good too…you are probably right about Parker…seems weird seeing him small and Arianna too when the other children were aged…i know the other kids were about a decade older anyway but its still weird to me…

I really like the idea… that … Phillip is revealed to be the father… and Victor has no recourse but to accept Chloe… much to Kate chagrin

Phillip is killed off somehow… (love, whomever, posted, that he’s in a mind fix ) so be it.. he’s not nuPhillip

he dies off trying to takeover Kiriakis.. but.. it’s Vincent Irizarry who comes to the rescue…

Peter Blake and or EJ is resurrected and launches the formidable DiMera

No way are they going to rewrite Parker’s paternity again. At least not until they get the real Phillip back.

No legitimacy for this latest idiotic recast, for the love of all that’s unholy.

more bad news on the days front.
.. instead of getting real keepers like jason cook as shawn, jay kenneth as phillip, bringing back real faves like austin and carrie, keeping eric and eve, giving jj ,paul , jennifer, justin, adrienne, lucas
….we get chloe and melanie!? ouch… days maybe wasted too much budget on a two week return for bo?! this is b.s…

I like Burnette as Melanie, but I need her acting to show growth. Enough of the overacting and silliness and coming across like a teen. She’s in her mid 20’s pushing 30 and she should project that maturity. I still also, think she would be an excellent replacement for Hope on B&B, should Kim decide not to return.

Hopefully it’s a short return because her giddiness and teeny bopper attitude was beginning to get on my nerves as Melanie. If they allowed or instructed her to play the role with a tad more maturity maybe it would be okay.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
