Now this sounds a bit wackadoodle but yet a lot of fun for fans of Days of our Lives! TV Guide is reporting that some of your favorite Salemites go to the movies ( in a very imaginative way) on the upcoming July 4th holiday episode, which is time out of time episode!

According to TVG here is what we know, “Bad rain will hit Salem forcing the young ones — Gabi, Chad, Abigail, Kinsey and Melanie — to stay indoors and watch this year’s Oscar DVDs at the Brady Pub.  While trying to decide which flicks to choose, Melanie imagines herself and Bo in True Grit, while Chad fantasizes himself in The Social Network and Gabi goes for The King’s Speech. Kinsey votes for The Fighter with Brady as Mark Wahlberg’s character and the gals — from Nicole and Melanie to sassy Nurse Maxine — as the mouthy, trashtastic Eklund sisters. And look for Emmy winner Judi Evans (Adrienne) in the badass mom role that won an Oscar for Melissa Leo. The Days take-off we most can’t wait to see? That’d be Swan Lake, with the great Kristian Alfonso (Hope) in all her psychotic Natalie Portman glory.”

So what do you think soapers? Who are you looking forward to seeing the most in the special episode? Let us know!

About darn time Days did a special Eppy I Sort Of Conflicted Im Torn Between DAYS & YR special July 4th Eppy’s. Since Days Have Chad I may be leaning there. Nice to see the Remaining soaps trying really hard to entertain their viewers.

This could go horribly wrong. I wish DAYS would focus on the basics. GL did a brilliant anniversary show but can’t imagine DAYS writers could pull this off.

After reading your description of it I am super stoked! I hope everyone takes it for what it is and enjoys it as much as the cast must have enjoyed filming it. Way to go Corday for this one.

I saw the 4th of July Days Special. It was a nice change of pace for the fans and the actors involved. I had not seen ANY of the movies being spoofed, but I knew enough about the movies to enjoy the skits anyway. Hope Days will do more specials in the future.

Many years ago, Days of Our Lives did a variety show as a fundraiser for University Hospital. The idea came from Bill Hayes (Doug Williams). So this is nothing new to Days. I hope they will do a variety show in the future. Let’s see what other talents the Days cast have to offer (i.e. singing, dancing, magic, etc.)

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
