Oh brother…is this a clip from 1977? Because everything on here has been done to death before…and better…goodbye Days.

No…its not from 19777…i watched the show in 1977 and it sure was 100% better than it is today!!!

Whar saddens me is losing Jenn Lilley. I csre not what hsppens to Hope, Jimmy. I hope Rafe forgets all about her.
Also, when is Abby making an appearance?…unless she’s already in Salem, as I said weeks and weeks ago. Abby will arrive without anyone’s knowledge spying on everyone. Will she take Thomas away?
Also, I am intrigued by the dee-lightful surprise inmate Hope will meet. Do you have any idea who it vould be?

Celia…its Marlena’s lookalike Hattie

You mean, Andrea Hall? Deirdra’s twin? Gran said she played Marlena’s twin, Samantha. But, wasn’t she killed by the Salem strangler?

Why on earth has the Brady pub been closed recently except for secret visitors and family members? SMH..What did I miss?

OMG !!! Hillary Bauer (Marsha Clark) from Guiding Light is the Judge in Hope’s trial.

Thank you Roman and Rafe, you two keystone kops covered up what Hope did and let her take the fall. You guys should join Hope in prison.

Lol….that’s funny, but true, Rayburn. I cannot stand this trio. I liked Rafe, but TPTB have turned him into a spineless, crooked cop, losing his integrity over what? A disturbed, mentally defective, much older woman.
So, she should escape punishment because her name is Horton? Well, not literally, but, you know what I mean. LOL.
I do not care that she was under stress and her past with Stefano haunted her. She should not have been a cop. A police officer needs his/her mental faculties at all times. Someone in Hope’s legendary state of mind should not be toting a gun.
Bad, bad writing.
I just have this creepy feeling Stefano is alive and Andre has him stashed somewhere. Hmmmm, with EJ? LOL.
When Andre found his father in all that rubble; could Stefano still have been alive and breathing?

This looks promising; more promising than the soap has been since earlier this decade, and it only took them 4-6 years to pull themselves out of a rut!

Stephano lives!…Hope is free!…Jade is preggers but who cares…and Joey is probably not the father-this would had been better if Eve was pregnant with JJs kid and if Paige was still alive…Jade-how boring she is!!!…Marlena’s lookalike-Hattie whoever…will she get out of prison and pretend she is Marlena and marry John?…oh, Theo doesnt trust Valerie-i written some stuff to Days over a year ago and suggested that storyline!!!..fall preview looks ok but its just a continuation of whats going on now…i give it a C-!!!

What is the purpose of “Blanca”. She should have gone with mamma Hernandez!

I prefer Maxine to Valerie.

Yawn…zzz So long Days

First, let me start by saying DAYS is finall looking GOOD! As for what story I am most looking forward to? Nicole’s baby of course!

it’s the perfect equation to answer – “for” – Nicole

she may not have family, but the gods look out for her

and hers… baby love future

that story line so took me by surprise…. I’m SO happy for Nicole

if it’s a boy… their is no need to name it Daniel Jonas… puhlease !

I quick watching a while back when this show when black and so many things changed and no longer have any interest in watching…Goodbye DOOL, it’s only a matter of time till it’s canceled.

I’m “quick” to watch each episode these DAYS!

I hope you meant “dark” when saying “black” because I’m enjoying the African American presence on DAYS and the mood is much less dark!

He didn’t say “went black” he said “when black” I may be wrong but I took it as John or Brady changed.

yes Brady should know the truth

I will watch because I love the show just wish they would do something new why dont they just get a new Tressa instead of having some guy from her past come back to haute her

The idea of the powerful drug lord suddenly showing up is stupid. We know these are characters being portrayed by actors. All that was needed was a voice over announcement saying, “The part of Theresa Dovovan will now be played by ________ ________.” Problem solved.

Exactly! That’s how it was done in the old days. No convoluted story on why the character looked different. We’re adults, we don’t need to, or care, why they look different . Change the actor and move on with the story! Stop changing the story to change the actor!

you said it all thats what they used to do

They don’t even do voiceovers now.

They should have recast the role. Theresa’s exit storyline is ridick.

what a massive improvement ! great to see that Days is back in business with great , juicy and exciting stories . I am giving up for good on young and restless and bold and beautiful and will now only watch Days . I plan to watch it everyday !

Overall, it looks to be a good season for DOOL but Theresa and the drug lord….really? All those spies and ex-spies can’t stop this man? It is a little strange unless they plan to bring this character back to the canvass.

They want to keep it open so they can bring Theresa back in the future. Personally, I’d prefer they recast the character and keep her on the show.

While I like the story ideas and think the reveal Of Abigail was spot on, I can’t seem to get excited by the reveals. Damos’ baby reveal is ridiculously repetitive for the show. Can’t they develop stories as opposed to throwing them on us?

What teenagers care about their friends dads love life as much as Theo’s friends?! So unrealistic! And if Abe’s idea of a first date is a lobby at a hospital he needs a jolt to start his heart up! Theo gets to the hospital in time to catch Abe and date within moments of getting a call? Stupid. And sudden.

I do not like Theresa’s exit storyline. I would prefer they recast the character.

When Gabby came to JJ’s house, WHO LET HER IN??
Does Jennifer now have an unseen butler?

Is Henderson working there now? 😉

Open door policy.

Preview highlighted no stories I can invest in

Meh – all of it has been done to death. I don’t wish to sound negative, and I know soaps are known to be far-fetched – but, when theresa overdosed (on purpose) why would Victor call Kayla, who just “happened to be” available? Wouldn’t most people dial 911? He called a doctor who answered her own Phone? Wow, I work with Doctors all day, I’d sure like to see THAT LoL –

Days Of Our Lives

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

On Thursday night during the Michael Fairman Channel’s livestream interview centering around Jason Cook’s (ex-Shawn, DAYS and ex-Matt, GH) latest movie Four For Fun which stars Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, AMC, ex-Rick, B&B and ex-Lucky, GH), revealed another upcoming film project with some very familiar faces.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Photo: JPI

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
