Now that it has been revealed that Jen Lilley’s character of Theresa is really Jeannie Theresa Donovan, that means she is playing the daughter of long time Days of our Lives and Salem favorites, Shane and Kimberly!

And hot on the heels of Jen’s emergence on the Salem canvas, it has now been confirmed after much speculation that Patsy Pease is returning to the NBC soap as Kimberly to play her on-screen mom!

Patsy related on her facebook page today, “Well, that was a long ‘nap!’ Hello Everybody! I’m back with GOOD news! I start shooting July17th, 18th and 19th. Thrilled to be back on ‘Days’ and I am so excited about working with the lovely and VERY talented Jen Lilley! Stay tuned !”

So what do you think about a return by Patsy Pease to DAYS? Do you hope she sticks around longer? Are you intrigued about the back-story between mother/daughter Donovan?  Weigh-in!

Well that means she will show up just around November sweeps since they shoot so far ahead, but it should be worth the wait. I hope she sticks around longer than some other former characters that pop in and pop out just as quickly.

Hmmmm Def would be good for Theresa/Jeannie to have some mental disorders like her mama Kim had back in the day.. Sounds like she may have some already due to her call herself a new name.. multiple personalities… It runs in the family… who knows.. may she is related to that crazy Kristen.. who is also have some major mental illnesses..

Never was a DAYS guy until I lost OLTL and AMC. Now I am connected to new friends in Salem. Although the histories remain a challenge for me, I enjoy the family feel this soap gives me. It resembles in spirit those P&G soaps now gone and missed. There was much buzz about a reboot and it seems we have made that journey successfully. Give me more family drama and real-stuff. I can do without the over-the-top but I know DAYS is DAYS so… I like the troublemaking Theresa and am sure the actress Patsy Pease’s return will add to… Read more »

I love that Days regularly brings back characters like this. They may not be on a lot, but having them around, popping in and out, makes the show feel like home. Like Adrienne, Justin, Kayla, Kimberly, etc. Sometimes they are only on once or twice a month, but it does help root and ground the show with sentimental favourites. I still wish the show would forge ahead with a Kayla/Abe romance. The show has had wonderful success with other mature couples like Maggie and Victor. Kayla and Abe would be a tentpole couple. As for Kimberly, I hope her reunion… Read more »

SO excited!! I really hope this is a contract role for both Patsy and Charlie. Sounds like Jeannie/Theresa has abandonment issues…only way to fix that is to have mommy and daddy around for a LONG time! :).

Oh wow I didn’t expect this! That’s really cool that they are bringing her back. I remember when she had that multiple personality storyline and when she played the crazy person getting the attention (now it’s Kristen). I hope Kimberly is on all the time too.

It would be great to see Kimberly on even if it’s just like Justin, Adrienne, and Kayla. They may not be on all the time but at least they show up every so often and it’s great!

I started watching Days in 1987 and along with Victor, Marlena and Stefano, Kim was my favorite character. Shane and Kim were always my favorite couple too. I really hope she will be back and STAY back. I really hope it’s for more than just three episodes. Would be cool to have Shane return as well!

couldnt be happier to have the very talented Patsy Pease return to dool. Now the question is > How to keep her there.

SIDEBAR – EJ’s corporate takeover… and DiMera Empire… will the Phoenix Rise. I too feel for Stefano… because… I can’t imagine that Stefano would be that distracted by Kate’s “infidelity”. He would never have allowed this to happen, to his family empire. I can only hope… 1. that Kristen’s telling EJ that she’s not aligning herself with either/or… and that she’ll support both.. and or wait the fallout of the fight between father and son. 2. could this be the catalyst for Chad’s eventual exit. I say this because… one… wouldn’t it seem that Stefano… would have ensured.. that his… Read more »

I would love to be Kate right now.. she doesn’t need any one person to help her in the mix. she’s good at it all…. she’s in love with Rafe. and I believe her in it. she doesnt have any deep entanglements… why not ply her trade… her wares…. she camps and should tramp her load. she’s in the know of the mix… grandma… mother… ex… new lover with surprise mix… physical and wonderment… he’s good looking. she understands the get with Rafe….

Patrick
Guest

I like thinking about these siblings…. cause i loved them. Roman (Wayne Northrop), Kimberly, Kayla, Bo…. Roman was on full-time days…. 1981-84, 1991-94. Patsy Pease full-time days…. 1984-1990. Mary beth Evans… 1986-1992, 2006-9. Peter Reckell… 1983-2012…. with a few leave of absence. thank god for you-tube – that we can go back and watch wonderful scenes of the old shows…. when wayne northrop was roman… he was such a wonderful brother…. and son. Kimberly… had to be the one i was most happy for… dang! wasn’t she the sensitive – heart on her sleave… emotional one… till she one day… Read more »

i should further add…. it wasn’t until… really… Kayla/Patch… Bo/Hope… the

but kimberly was the feminine – rescue her – mental illness…. the prostitute…in the good ole days… and Patsy Pease – was a revelation. so.. it’s with a sigh of relief that Kimberly is safe. whew!

I would like to see both Shane and Kimberly come back. Also having their son Andrew would be a great addition. I have a idea lets bring Philip Kiriaks back and have him date and fall in love with Jeanie. Remember the Kimberly Shane and Victor story line in the 1980s. I think this would be a interesting twist

I do hope that they do bring back Shane now that Kim is back with there daughter Jeannie . I do love the character of Shane . He was my favorite of them all.

I can’t wait to see Patsy return, I grew up watching Shane and Kimberly, I miss all the old characters, they were the heart and soul of the show, Kayla and Patch, Hope and Bo, Marlena, Caroline and Shawn, I realize the show has to keep up with the times, but it needs to remember the “staples” of the show as well

I don’t care why she is back. just glad she is.

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!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

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?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
