Days of our Lives is about to get really juicy with the arrival of Daytime Emmy winner Eileen Davidson, when she reprises her role of Kristen DiMera.

In a new promo releases by NBC for  DAYS, the video teases with the voice over:  “She’s baaaack … and no one’s life will ever be the same!”

The promo shows quick cut images of Kristen, Brady (Eric Martsolf), Roman (Josh Taylor) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), John (Drake Hogestyn), Theresa (Jen Lilley), Eric (Greg Vaughan), Nicole (Arianne Zucker), Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves)! What does Kristen have in store when she comes back to Salem?

Due to DAYS preemption this week for the Malaysian Airlines disaster, Davidson’s return as Kristen which was originally slated to air on next Friday’s July 25th episode, looks like it will be pushed back to the Monday, July 28th episode of the NBC soap!

Watch the promo after the jump!  Then weigh-in …  what do you think Kristen’s newest plot will be when she wreaks havoc in Salem?  What will be her agenda this time?

Yay! Kristen is back! Watch out Salem!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Kristen comes back to reveal the identity of Johns daughter Jordan…she was also married to Clyde and Ben is her son from Clyde…Jordan and Ben are the new Dimeras of Salem…Kidding!!!

Interesting.. those two characters are very boring and they do need something to spice up their storyline.. … jordan has been on the show for 1 or two years… and they have hyped her secrecy for soooo long… better be something worthwhile…… I am thinking I will not be too impressed….

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I know what your saying…Jordons storyline is boring and i hope it heats up soon…and it better be good!!!

Actually, jimh, my cousin has a pretty feasible theory about the newest DiMera heir. She purports that Stefano arranged to have Abbi’s and EJ’s embryo implanted into Kristin by the doctor who examined Abbi….said doctor being “under” Stefano’s payroll—— of course, Kristin will say it’s Brady’s baby—just like GH’s Lulu whose embryo was stolen and implanted into Britt by her mother. Sounds good to me….a dramatic twist, I’d say; and what sweet irony!.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I love twists and turns and i love your cousins stolen embryo idea…thats ten times better than mine (How dare your cousin outdo me…lol) joking aside, i still wish Jordan and Ben somehow had a Dimera connection(maybe Clyde is Stephanos nephew?)…with E.J. on the way out and Kristens visit only a temp the show is in need of new Dimera blood or the return of Kristens brother Peter unless the Dimeras days in Salem are numbered and the show plans to go in a different direction…Eve and Theressa can certainly cause the Salem residence a lot of problems…

Hey, jimh. Nothing can top your ” what ifs ” or scenarios. The writers must definitely come up with something. The DiMeras are dwindling as we speak, so there needs to be a connection with someone or some family. These characters…Jordan, Ben, and now Clyde were introduced for a reason, and your theory makes perfect sense. This is soapland where ANYTHING is possible. Well, DOOL is doing something right if it keeps us talking, fantasizing, imagining and speculate.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Sometime ago i said Kristen would return with a baby but either Brady or Eric would be the father but after reading your cousins clever theory about Abigail and E.J., and the possiblility that Stephano had Abbys embryo stolen and given to Kristen to pass off as Bradys, does sound like a Dimera plot to me and i love it…and i do hope it does turn out that way…let your cousin know what a great idea i think it is too!!!

This will be fun!

Whatever she is going to do we know it will be entertaining! Wonder if she tries to help Stefano get revenge on Sami & Kate…even though they aren’t in the promo. I really hope they don’t do a “miracle” baby….too cliche.

I agree chaz, i think it has something to do w demira enterprizes.

You’re right, Chaz….there goes my cousin’s theory. It is too chiche’.

DOOL is on fire right now and it’s only getting better. So happy Kristen is back and I can’t wait to see what she’s up to now.

it’s about time. With EJ in jail, Stefano banned from Salem with an arrest warrant hanging over his head, Kate and Sami hijacking of DiMera Enterprises, and the level of stupidity Brady has sunk to Salem needs something real to shake it up. Kristin is about as real as it gets, Eve Donovan notwithstanding. Even a short-term visit from Kristin is better than nothing.

Oh, enough already!!!!! I mean…I’m starting to think that it’s a VERY BAD IDEA for Eileen Davidson to go back to Y&R (new contract and all). I mean…Y&R is such a M-E-S-S right now…longtime characters being thrown aside, longtime cast members either getting fired or ending up quitting, ANNOYING newbie characters running amok…YIKES!!!!! Bottom Line Here: I wish that ED would return to DOOL ALTOGETHER!!!!! That way…Eileen won’t have to deal with a bunch of backstage drama (aka Y&R). And…Eileen’s talents as an actress will be truly appreciated. As a longtime soap viewer…TEAM DOOL!!!!!

I am SO excited for this!!!! With Kristen’s return being so short, and EJ and Sami on their way out, Chad gone and Lexie dead, they need to recast Peter Blake or bring back Jason Brooks!!! And keep him clear of Jennifer, that storyline is dead and gone!!!!!! Peter coming back from jail would shake the show up for sure!!!!!!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.
