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)
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…

CeeCee

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 Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

Photo: JPI

 

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
