The Bay is back with fresh episodes for its all new season which launched on Tuesday afternoon with the release of two installments.

What sparked our interest, in particular was the sexy and visually stunning opening title sequence directed and produced by series stars and show producers, Lilly Melgar (Janice) and Kristos Andrews (Peter).   The use of the actors/characters  images juxtaposed with stimulating transitions and graphics, and new music tune that fits just right make it a must-see several times over to catch all the moments with the cast.

And it is longtime standout Days of our Lives veterans Patsy Pease and Matthew Ashford who have some scene-stealing moments in episode 1 and 2.   Pease debuts as Lola a prison inmate of Sara Garrett’s (Mary Beth Evans) who definitely has some mental issues going on.   As for Ashford he returns as the Steve Jensen, who is clearly delighted that his wife Sara has been sent away to prison for killing her grandfather, and tries to use it to his advantage with the press and the Garrett family, only to have it backfire.   It’s vintage Ashford, and it was fun to watch.

As the story picks-up from last season, Sara is in the slammer in a “Orange is the New Black” style situation.  Janice, who has just been brutually raped, is completely undone and trying to figure out what to do next, and Pete gets the news that he must marry before he can get his hands on a fortune to help get his mother Sara out of jail.   Meanwhile alone in her cell Sara recalls when a young Lee Nelson played by Eric Martsolf kept her secret from ever coming to light.  How will this all play out and more?

Watch the first two episodes of Gregori J. Martin’s The Bay after the jump.  Then let us: what did you think of the opening title sequence?  What performance struck you the most?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Absolutely stunning! Love the opening credits. Very well done. I totally agree about Matt Ashford and Pasty Pease, but overall, everyone was on their mark. Looking forward to the next episode.

Liked the opening credits! Would have preferred the actor images lined up with the actor names, but I don’t mind the randomized images with alphabetical names… allows for emphasis on more major players appearing multiple times. But the composition was well done!

I just saw the first two episode and I love it . The opening intro was perfect,I feel like I looking at James Bond film. I already know that Sara Garrett is inocent. I can’t wait to learn who is the real killer is. I love the way the writer developed the various character. Good luck to the future . I hope that Bay the series will finally release on DVD format because not every one have kindle device.

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?
