News from actor Richard Steinmetz himself this week, has the multi-soap alum set to spend some time in Salem on Days of our Lives.

Steinmetz who has previously appeared on General Hospital, Loving and Passions, noted on his Facebook page, “Some good news. I landed a role on the soap, Days OF Our Lives. I start shooting tomorrow. It’s a terrific role, not sure if I can say what it is yet , but I’ll keep you posted. And when the episodes start airing. 👌”

Just who Richard will be playing is under wraps, but lets’ remember he has a penchant for playing bad guys! Joe Scully Jr. on GH, not so nice! He also played Martin Fitzgerald on Passions and Jeff Hartman on Loving.

So how will Steinmetz figure into the story canvas at DAYS? Share your theories in the comment section below.

Days continues to keep things fresh! I hope he comes on as a mobster from Avas past and that causes trouble for her and Rafe. Dont like that the writers are favoring Rafe/ Nicole over Ava and Rafe! Rafe needs a soulmate and not to be a filler/ rebound from another popular couple. Everyone knows Nicole and Eric are endgame! I wish Y n r would take note, Days takes risks and fires on all cylinders while ‘ young and restless’ is really the ‘ old and tired’ . Gimme a break.

Sony doesn’t own DAYS, Ken Corday does. Sony is the distributor who does a piss poor job distributing DAYS so as not to compete against Y&R in foreign markets. Sony owns Y&R and and the profits aren’t shared, whereas Sony only gets a share of profits for DAYS distribution.

I really am loving the Ava and Rafe pairing! Very sexy couple… finally someone who peaks Rafe’s interest. He’s very much into Ava… I saw the sparks when she first having scenes with Rafe. I am not in favour of Nicole and Rafe being together. She is still married even though she cheated and slept with Zander. It’s time to bring a new Eric home or dissolve the marriage?

There isn’t anyone she hasn’t cheated and slept with. I hope whether Eric is Greg Vaughn or a new one, he dumps her ass. Poor Allie, with Nicolle and Sammy as her role models, the girl can’t win.

He certainly looks like Charlie. Baby grandfather, Philly friend of Jake and possible mob rival to EJ.

Joe Scully Jr. was a complete waste of time character created by Ron Carlivati at GH. Since we all know how ReRon likes to repeat himself (hence the name ReRon) I’m predicting Steinmetz will be a complete waste of time member of the Vitali crime family when he comes to Salem. Which means he’s probably the father of the dead rapist, Charlie. Who will want revenge on Ava, probably Allie and Tripp… and pretty much anybody in town who his piece of dragonshit son interacted with, as he will blame them all for Charlie being dead. Absent from his revenge… Read more »

He looks like he could have the face of a DiMera…and we all know what that means. He could very easily be one of the bad guys that family has a penchant for spawning.

I’m sticking with my original prediction that he’s Charlie’s dad, but I’ll throw an alternate possibility in, just for the HELL of it: What if he’s a recast of the long lost Peter Blake? Adopted son of Stefano DiMera and biological brother of the soon to be again-departed Kristen Blake DiMera. Given the total failure of most recasts during the ReRon era, I sincerely hope this is NOT the case. Especially with recast EJ already showing up in a couple weeks. Last thing I want to watch is a “battle for control of DiMera industries” made up of a bunch… Read more »

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?
