I wish some better and more informative questions were asked in the Nadia interview. I feel like it was really rushed along and too short. I wish Michael Fairman had asked Nadia what it was like working with Jessica Leccia(as actresses)? And asked Nadia how the chemistry and vibe is different between actors when playing a same sex romance. And asked Nadia her opinions on the Ani and Lara romance on Venice? And also should have asked Nadia about her big scenes at the end of this season of Venice while asking what’s in store for Lara in season 3.… Read more »

Fun Podcast, Michael. It was jam packed with stars and to top it all off, Maurice Bernard. Are you kidding me? Loved it all. Michelle Stafford was a nice surprise. She had lots to talk about. Galen Gering is one of the most hansome men on TV. Carolyn is always fun, and I love her comic remarks.She is great on GH. And, it’s always fun to play the guessing game created byDillon Casey. I try to guess, but while I’m racking my brain for clues, you guys solve it. Also, Joe Lando was nice to hear from and all the… Read more »

RE: MAURICE BENARD’S INTERVIEW… i felt carolyn hennesy was a bit of a show-off, always coming back to her character and complimenting herself in scenes with maurice, rather than interviewing him on HIS character and what he wanted to say about sonny. also, what right does ms. hennesy have to criticize vanessa (not brenda, vanessa) and call her “angst-ridden” and “able to split into a million pieces”? whatever her thoughts, that’s not cool to say about a co-star who never, ever talks badly about the people she works with. truth is, the best scenes maurice ever had were with vanessa… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
