He will tell on good old Kristen. He will turn out to be good in the end. Deep down all he wants is Family.

Paul Telfer has created a great rootable, meathead villian — his portrayal projects far beyond the script. DOOL needs to develop Xander as a lead character.

I’m so glad that people are getting in on

^^^ “… his portrayal projects far beyond the script”

THIS is his 4th or 5th time “around” he’s always counted … he’s an animal “lose” right now

oh yeah, salivate !

there’s a “magnate” BIG ON

Paul Tolfer has always held on

He’s existed for a reason !!! I like him

S E X is celebrated WITH

let loose! somenew

YOU have a FUN’ny post @denise. YET essence should play out

he projects yield to temptations naked PLUS

character anew !

Per @Emily ^^^ post

Xander was originally brought on as the “troubled” nephew of Victor brother that did not get along. Xander appeal lie in wanting to be a part of the kiriakis Empire AND ‘belonging’

scripts changed

yet his presentation never wavered AND he’s continually numbered in.

I want to see his scenes w/Maggie.. the “non-judgmental” ep

I want to see his likeness be with Kristen even tango

I am still bowled over that he’s with Sarah

I want to see his family take

there are underlying currents going on big time … you never get this @

I do not like Lani anyway. Eli could do so much better than this insipid woman. Iam surprised they haven’t had her kidnap a newborn by now. I hope Rafe tells her what to do, when she jumps his bones. How pathetic they have made this character.

I saw something surprising on today’s show with Zander. I always hated him, but Paul Telfer showed us a different side of this man. Someone that has real feelings, and with some love and understanding, he could become a good man. I wish TPTB would consider this possibility, but every show needs a villain, and I guess Paul is it.

EP Ken Corday Shares Favorite All-Time DAYS Storyline Is Marlena’s Possession

While in Australia, Ken Corday, the executive producer of Days of our Lives, sat down for an interviews segment on 9Now’s Today Extra to talk about the rich history and enduring success of the long-running NBC daytime drama series, which is about to celebrate yet another anniversary in just a few short weeks on November 8th.

During the conversation, Ken was asked about his all-time favorite storyline, or if he had a frontrunner within the wealth of twist, turns, romances, adventure, and drama that has been part of the town of Salem for over five and a half decades.  Corday expressed that he did have a frontrunner … and that is was Marlena being possessed by the devil from the mid-90’s.

Ken told the Today Extra hosts: ‘When we took Deidre Hall, the lovely Marlena Evans, and had her possessed by the devil. It was right out of The Exorcist!’

The EP also admitted at first he was reticent to tell the story:  “I first said, ‘No, you’re mad this will never work!’ But we did it for a few weeks, and the story was meant to play out and then end at Christmas, but it ended up going on until Easter.”

OLTL Favorite Eddie Alderson Reveals He Is Cancer-Free After Long Battle

That plot came from the mind of the late soap scribe, James Reilly, and had gone through many twists from when John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was a priest in one of that character’s many incarnations, and at the time, it was John who has to perform that exorcism on the woman he loved, after Stefano (the late Joe Mascolo) left Marlena vulnerable for demonic forces to enter her body.

There was the bed levitating, the yellow eyes, and more, along with Deidre Hall’s great performance, that made this one of the more spectacular soap opera tales ever told on daytime.   In fact, over the weekend, Hall commented on Corday’s choice tweeting:  “Couldn’t have said it better myself!!”

So, would you vote for Marlena’s possession as your top all-time Days story .. or do you have another pick that you think ranks at the top? Let us know your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem
