Funniest podcast to date! Carolyn is so witty! Can’t wait to see her appear on True Blood tomorrow!

I enjoyed James Scott. He is such a gratious person to have admitted he was disappointed in not receiving a pre-Emmy nom, and to further praise the work of the other actors who did get nominated. I am hoping that James will indeed get an Emmy in the future. He is a phenominal actor. James is the leading male actor on Days, and I faithfully tune in when he is on. I am an EJami fan. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Ohio, and he was not above chatting with me for about 30 minutes. Mr. Fairman thanks… Read more »

great podcast! I love that James called in. His opinions about the show are always thought-provoking and interesting. I wish he had more of a role behind the scenes; they could use his input.
I don’t blame Carolyn on James’ voice. It is VERY sexy.

What a great podcast! Michael, Carolyn…I love you both. I’m sorry I don’t know Dillon’s work but it was nice to meet him as well. Jen Lilley has done a fabulous job as Maxie (tho, unfortunately, I can’t bring myself to watch GH at the moment due to the dead baby s/l). James Scott and Ali Sweeney are THE reason I watch DAYS. James gave me the impression he was a bit disappointed that the “grief sex” was the scene nominated for the Emmy but, IMHO, that scene was about SO much more than sex. Sami instinctively sought out EJ… Read more »

Dillon seems like a “nice” guy , but has so little to add, and is so soap-uninformed, a lot of this conversation was a lot about nothing. (What happened to Prospect Park, guys?)

Very nice podcast, Michael! My favorite part was hearing from James Scott, because he always has such interesting and intelligent insights, and anything he says sounds 10 times better in that gorgeous accent!

What a joy to listen to James Scott being a true professional. Never in the whole interview did he give away any “spoiler” etc. This shows a true, committed acting professional. He wants to keep the people viewing. In addition to being a truly dynamic actor! I will be honest he and Alison Sweeney are the real reasons why I have returned to watching DOOL because there is something there with them when ALLOWED to be in a scene. IMHO of DOOL was smart they would FINALLY write a story for Ej and Sami ( look at 50 Shades of… Read more »

Wish you would have asked James about Renee Jones or even how he would feel if Eileen Davidson came back as his mom, but overall, really good podcast. Please don’t leave these off to once every 6-9 months! They’re really enjoyable!

Thank you Michael for another wonderful great James Scott interview! It’s always a pleasure to hear from him and his POV on DAYS and what he thinks of the show and his character! I am really looking forward to his upcoming storyline with Sami. They are just amazing together!

Michael once again you have delivered a great interview with James Scott. I so agree w/CH that just the sound of James’ voice is worth a listen. It was nice that James did not spoil what is coming up. Hopefully Tomlin/Whitesell & NBC have a clear vision of what will bring DOOL out of the doldrums in which it presently resides. I hope that vision includes EJ becoming his own man, out of Stefano’s expectations. I still wait for Days to give EJami a real story that involves only EJ & Sami. Also a big thanks to you for sharing… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Photo: JPI

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

Courtesy/NBC

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
