Sunday saw most of the cast of NBC’s Days of our Lives, some of your favorites from CBS’ The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, and a former soap star turned pop singer …  Jesse McCartney, we are talking about you … participating in Tinseltown’s kick-off to the holiday season, The Hollywood Christmas Parade!

This year however, weather was not the friend of those attendees, the press, or the stars as heavy rains soaked the red carpet prior to the parade, and come parade time there were intermittent showers, and/or some drizzle.

Needless to say, umbrellas and a change of clothes were needed.  But all in all, come rain or come shine, a great time was had by all!

Days of our Lives was the big honoree for the event as a kick-off to their year long celebration marking their upcoming 50th anniversary season next year!  On hand were some your favorite Salemites including: Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Joe Mascolo, Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi, Lauren Koslow, Jen Lilley, Suzanne Rogers, Peggy McKay, Guy Wilson, Christopher Sean, Meredith Scott Lynn, Arianne Zucker, Galen Gering, Eric Martsolf, Aloma Wright, Casey Moss, True O’Brien, and Molly Burnett.

The Young and the Restless was represented by Sharon Case, Sean Carrigan, Tristan Rogers, Melissa Ordway (with her husband former DAYS star Justin Gatson), and Kate Linder, and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Rena Sofer and Sean Kanan also participated in the annual Hollywood tradition.  Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath, singer Taylor Dayne,  Kool and the Gang, Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora also stopped to pose for some pictures along the way, as well as Home and Family hosts: Christina Ferrare and Mark Steines.

The Hollywood Christmas Parade will air on television first on Wednesday, December 10th on the Hallmark Channel. The next airing will be on Friday, December 19th on The Hallmark Movie Channel.  If you live in Los Angeles, you can watch it on KTLA Channel 5 on Friday December 19th, and again on Sunday, December 21st.  And for when the parade will air in your area … click here for stations, dates, and times!    Associated Television International is once again producers of the parade telecast, and Erik Estrada and Laura McKenzie are back as the hosts with the most during the parade.

I love Deidre Hall, she is a sassy, classy lady. The woman never ages, Deidre is 67 years old wow hard to believe. She takes good care of her self. I miss Sami Brady so much. Alison Sweeney is one talented lady and actress.

I am very surprised that there is no photo of Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R). Linder seems to ALWAYS be pictured at any event involving Y&R actors.

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?
