Christie Clark is not a surprise… I heard she was coming back months before the changes started at Days and after Sami called Carrie on the phone not too long after that & they actually shot the less than @min scene I knew it wouldn’t be long till she returned to Salem. my only question is why Patrick Muldoon, not that I particularly dislike him but the Austin that was popular opposite of Christie Clark’s Carrie and spent the most time as the character was Austin Preck. I know he’s at OLTL right now but even with the internet pick-up… Read more »

So excited that Christie, Patrick, Deidre, Drake and Bryan are coming back. Now we’ll finally have OUR Days of Our Lives show back as long as Bo and Hope are front and center. Thank you Ken Corday for finally getting the message.

I agree 100%. I love Christie Clarke and Patrick Muldoon. This is the best news I have heard. I am so happy the vets are coming back. Ken Corday wasnt joking when he said that there are major changes coming. I cant wait to see Sami’s face when Carrie and Austin come back LOL. I cant wait for September 🙂 🙂

I am thrilled that my favourite couple from the 90s is heading back to Salem, and I am over the moon that it is Patrick Muldoon this time. I grew to enjoy Austin Peck as Austin but Patrick was always my favourite Austin, and his chemistry with Christie was fantastic. I can’t wait to see them back together all these years later!!

Christie Clark is my favorite! Seeing her on the phone call with Sami was such a tease. So glad she’ll be back full time. Loving the changes so far at Days!

Wow DOOL gets rid of Crystal Chappell for these two? Not worth it.
Roman and Marlena are not worth it! DOOL will never be the same! We are loosing amazing talent to be subjected to this?

I agree… granted they are part of days history…. none of the returning “favs” have the emotional range and intelligence, and or versatile acting abilities of crystal chappell and louise sorrell….. these two ladies provided comedic and dramatic turns that always kept my interest… i’ve lost interest in days again…

Patrick Muldoon has said on his twitter page nope! To days of our lives. And his flying overseas to a wedding . Soap opera digest confimed Next Week as A C start taping day . So why would Muldoon be flying over seas if his going to be knee high in days scripts? Next week. The weekend is almost over
He also Tweeted lisa rinna “nope to days?”

Trust me Austin is a wonderful actor. There are so many carrie and austin fans. Patrick was great on days. But so was Austin. when the writers did invest in Carrie and Austin’s storyline. Austin acting improved. But how is it the actor’s fault if all the writers ever did was write Austin as shirtless, and have Sami run interference. When carrie and austin were on the ratings were good. As well as Austin and Nicole had great chemistry. bring austin peck back. I think given all that he as been thru. I think his acting will be A class.… Read more »

Austin peck. Was ok as austin, he let his stripping and being shirtless do the acting, unlike muldoon. Patrick muldoon was the best austin and he had chemistry with carrie and sami, he is decent actor, and he is not goofy.

I love Austin + Carrie TOGETHER as a couple. Please no more love triangles or quadrilateral situations. Let them be happy TOGETHER & focused on their family(kids). As far as I am concerned:
Austin + Carrie = PERFECT
Austin + Sami = Pathetic
Austin + Nicole/Greta = Shocking
Carrie + Mike = Horrendous
Carrie + Lucas = Disgusting

Patrick muldoon was and is still the best austin reed and he chemistry with both sami and carrie. Sami and austin pairing was not pathetic with muldoon, but peck it was force and werid.

Austin peck needs to return. Patrick, in my opinion- is to old to play Austin Reed. Patrick has no chemistry w// cc or any one. And he looks older then his T.v mom Kate. His voice driving me nuts plus his line delivery is to slow. Also to think that Abby would find this version of Austin Reed “hot” is ricdiclous. Austin was wonderful on As the World Turns, and One life to Live. I hope that tptb bring Peck back. I was so looking foward to C/a. Patrick hasn’t played Austin Reed for 16 years. And if they were… Read more »

Pat muldoon was born 1968 and Austin peck in 1971, now both men have aged and the only reason come on the show was that pat chose to leave.

I havent watched many soaps since probably when “Another World” was cancelled. But watched many growing up in high school, and especially college. I agree that the interaction between Austin Peck and Carrie is the one most would want to see. I remember Muldoon in the begginng as well,..but Peck is much better when pairing up the couple.

I don’t care about their real ages. Pat Muldoon looks sooo much older and he sounds very …fruity. Austin Peck was much better.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
