Yes, I’m excited to see the time capsules. I’ve enjoyed the recent flashbacks of THE Sally Spectra so I want to see more! Great idea.

Location shoots galore!

Yep, Brother…I was thinking the exact same thing!!!!!

Later, Brother.

I watched it yesterday for the first time in a LONG time and it wasn’t too bad. I had no idea that Patrika Dabo (sp?) was on there and playing Sally Spectra’s sister. that was pretty awesome to see, I hope she stays on there. she looks great on there also. I’m glad they have Spectra even with the same studio and the 80’s logo still there, that was very cool.

When their Mother, (Betty White), was on the show. Stephanie’s talks with Brooke before she passed.

I have a huge regret that I didn’t watch this show from the beginning. I never got to experience Stephanie/Sally. I love the new Sally. She is a great addition and is very expressive with your facial reactions. I am glad to have a breather from the Steffy/Liam/Wyatt and Ridge/Quinn/Eric storylines. Patrika Darbo fits in great and has the same spunk as she did when she was on DOOL in the 1990s. I can’t wait for the Australia remote.

Bold & The Beautiful is my favorite soap. Would like to see Eric & Brook storyline again.

Sheila better be in there! Macy too!

Loving B&B and I have watch off and on since the beginning but I watch it daily now which I record…So looking forward to the flashbacks…Brad Bell, if you look at these post, please hire Jaime Lyn Bauer to interact with John McCook and have JLB and RS go at it…

I wonder if they will show any scenes with Ronn Moss as Ridge? So much of the history between Brooke and Ridge was when he played the character — can’t imagine how you could do history of the show without his portrayal of Ridge– the Ridge and Brooke pairing was a big part of show’s past— so if I can see RM play Ridge again even if only in flashbacks — that be great– but if I have watch Bill and Brooke in that balloon one more time or a Steffy and Liam montage of “their relationship” I will scream.

My favorites were watching Stephanie and Brooke fight in the fountain and so many others between the two of them. As we as when Stephanie died in Brooke’s arms. And the rollercoaster ride they went on together.

Did they kill off Taylor and never tell us no mention of Steffy and Thomas’s mom and yet she has a grandson and Steffy getting married again to the whiner. Brad has no respect for his actors from the past Ronn Moss was on for 25 years and Ibet their will not be any flashbacks of he or Hunter Tylo who was also very popular.

I hope they plan on bringing back more characters from the past like they did with Kristen and Tony. Would love to see Jackie M. and Taylor. (Loving the new Spectra BTW).

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
