Big news out today from TV Guide on how Crystal Chappell’s character of Dr. Carly Manning will get through her drug dependency,  and possibly usher out Chappell from the series, now that a few weeks ago Days of our Lives dropped Chappell when her contract expires in August.

First comes the news that daytime favorite from All My Children and Santa Barbara, Sydney Penny has been cast to play Dr. Norman, who will work with Carly to overcome her drug addiction at the rehab center.  And then DAYS had added Cody Longo (the former star of Make It or Break It) to the  cast as Nicholas Alamain, Carly’s son!

Acording to TVG, “After mother and son are reunited and Carly seems to be on the mend, look for Chappell — who has been fired along with several other Days stars — to be ushered off the series.”

Look for Penny, to start airing on Days August 30.   So it would seem from this that Chappell will be seen on DAYS at least into  September.

Still doesn’t seem real that this is happening. Now they cast Nicholas! At least it looks like Carly is at least getting an exit, and possibly an upbeat one.

Some characters don’t get an exit, they just stop appearing, or they kill them off.

I’m gonna miss seeing Crystal on tv regularly. I wish Corday would have let the new writers fix Carly and Chloe.

Icam, I still can’t believe it myself. But once she is gone, so am I.

Yeah I agree.. both Carly and Chloe are extremely popular characters and both have ties and history in Salem, unlike the Hernandez family who IMO should have all been first on the chopping block. What’s strange too is when CC came to the show she brought alot of viewers with her and with their ratings dwindling, getting rid of one of your ratings getter is a bad move.

After yesterday’s episode, I thought Carly Manning’s exit would be dire. Glad there will be a happy ending for Carly and for Ms. Chappell’s run on the show.

This still doesn’t feel real to me. It wasn’t fair the first ime we lost her and its feels even worst now. I don’t care who’s coming back. I already know their stories. Days made a HUGE mistake letting her go. When she leaves I’m outtie baby.

Days Of Our Lives

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?
