Nobody Does Weddings Like DAYS … Get Ready For John and Marlena’s

Courtesy/NBC

A Jarlena wedding written by DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati can bring with it several things: delicious drama, fun, love in the air, and dire circumstances!  And from the looks of this just released extended :30 promo for next week’s episodes of Days of our Lives that is exactly what viewers can expect.

The question is  … through it all, will John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally re-tie the knot?

From the teaser, it would seem there are many expected, unexpected, and surprise guests attending the nuptials including: Sami (Alison Sweeney), Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison), and a person whose face is in bandages in a tux!  And in the finest of soap opera traditions, things look to being going horribly wrong before the wedding day,

But as the promo teases, this wedding is a weeklong event, and someone will not be going home from the wedding when a gunshot is fired!

And if that was not enough, it looks like Will (Chandler Massey) finally remembers his love for Sonny (Freddie Smith), and it appears a long-awaited reunion may finally may be the order of the day, but what about Paul (Christopher Sean)?

Let’s not forget the last tine Carlivati wrote a series of major episodes for a wedding event – that of the double wedding of Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail (Marci Miller) and Sonny and Paul – and we all know what happened that time!  Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson) showed up at the church just in time to drop the bombshell that Will was alive which put a major clink in Sonny and Paul’s portion of the big day.

So what do you think will go down?  Will Jarlena get to say their “I Do’s”?  Who possibly gets shot?  It’s a not-to-be-missed week of DAYS.  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

I just want to know that John has worked the 12 steps for Ancestry.Com addiction. Honestly, it was really disturbing.

Yeah, they really should have kept him as Forrest Alamain. That was the identity that made the most sense.

So what Do I think?Um I have a feeling that someone from John’s past will show up and spoil everything.Like Kristian if I spelled that right.Then again what do I know.Could be someone from Marlana’s past perhaps her twin will show up I cannot think of her name,Bonnnie L”S friend.

You are thinking of Hattie. I don’t think it’s Kristian cause it says Stacy Haiduk is back playing Susan. AS for the guy in bandages, could it be Leo?

Wow, Karen!!!!! Great guess…..Leo! Yes, could very well be. This would exculpate Will and Sonny. The plot would definitely thicken!!
I doubt it’s Kristin—but, one never knows.
It could be virtuous Hope sleepwalking again.
Remember when her pills made her commit criminal acts which landed her in jail? If only it were Hope…..one can dream…..

Hoping against hope that it is Jack in the bandages.But Leo does make sense to me.

John will be shot at but Patch takes the bullet and has to leave town for recovery as he lapses into a coma or cant walk…Sami brings baby Rafe to the wedding and predictably it messes things up for Rafe and Hope…if Sami has any more children i heard she and they will star on Neflix’s Eight Is Enough reboot-lol

Oh, please….not the Hattie and Bonnie ‘saga’, again!!!! I want to SCREAM, people!!!!
A ‘wedding Marlena doll’? Really?! What did Hattie do? Ask a henchman go to Mattel and ask for its ‘face’ artist to manufacture a Marlena-head-facsimile and screw it on a Barbie body? ….or was it Bonnie, in order to obfuscate matters?
Then, along comes the virtious Hope……when, oh, when has she become soooo righteous?
As far as I am concerned, the only character who has been steadfastly as close as possible to maintaining integrity is Adrienne……unless I missed something?

There really was a Marlena Doll…had in my late mom’s doll collection and i sold it for 50 bucks several years ago!!!…Hope is getting a bit overbearing!!!

Celia

Really, Jimmy? A Marlena doll? WOW!!!!
A couple of posters speculated that the doll was sent by Kristin. I didn’t think so, albeit I did say one never knows.
Well, it turns out to be Susan ( not the same without Eileen Davidson)…… could it really be Kristin in disguise? It’s so much more feasible considering Susan is in a mental institution?……and, Kristin’s body was never found……truly bubbly, soapy!! LOL.

There was also an Erica Kane Doll as well…both by Mattel…sold that one for 50 bucks too…both were mint in the box!!!

We see the town’s people filling up the chairs, but where is the real friends and family, namely Ari,Maggie,Abby,Chad,Ciara without Hope, because she’s too busy at the P.D, seeing how she can still nail Ben.Lucas if he’s still around and Kate, who has goitten pretty friendly with Marlena. Also can’t wait to see the bandaged man, unless that was just for the dream sequence. Thought it might be Jack, still recovering from his being smashed in the elevator, or EJ who’s been waiting out in the car for Kristen.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

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?
