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.

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.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
