The Can’t-Miss Week of Days of our Lives: What Happened The Night Adrienne Died? And … More Questions Answered

Photo: JPI

Make sure to catch Days of our Lives on any platform you can next week! (The President Donald Trump impeachment hearings could alter the regularly scheduled daytime time slot for the series on NBC).  For, it is a pivotal one for fans that have been following along the major storylines of the innovative time jump that started to air last November.

In one emotional week, Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Justin (Wally Kurth) revisit the last day of Adrienne’s life — which happens to be last Mother’s Day.  In addition, Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) goes into labor.  While. Brady (Eric Martsolf) causes tension when he brings Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) to his parents’ townhouse for Mother’s Day.  Plus, Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) gets an upsetting visit from someone from her past.  How does this all tie-in to what went down that fateful night?

The latest NBC promo for the series promises we will learn what happened to Adrienne, especially since on Friday’s episode, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) told Will(Chandler Massey) he is not responsible for his mother-in-laws death AFTER he signed the divorce papers with Sonny.   Plus major intel on what happened to Brady and Kristen’s baby and how Haley Chen (Thia Megia) died, which had left an anguished JJ (Casey Moss) turning back to drugs.

Catch the preview below.  Then, let us know your theories on what happened last Mother’s Day in Salem via the comment section below!

Friday’s episode seemed to be putting all the pieces in place… Ciara tells Will that he’s not the one who killed Adrienne. Eric & Sarah get tested to be bone marrow donors for “their” baby, while Brady & Kristen are left to speculate on what might have happened had their baby not “died’ Why the air quotes?? Because anybody familiar with ReRon’s writing knows that baby switches are something he’s dragged out at least 666 times. It’s only obvious at this point. Really don’t need to see the return of Maggie’s other ridiculous insta-kid, the surfer girl con artist whatever… Read more »

The infamous baby-switcheroo. Yup —-when you say “their” baby, are you suggesting that Mickey could be Kristin’s and Brady’s baby? If so, I like the way you think—-I, actually, considered that obvious phenomenon myself.

While it’s good to get answers after seeing what happened within a year ahead; I still think it would have been smarter to have one time jump episode first and go back to the present to then see how it played out. One special episode showing Will in jail with Ben but not knowing why, Kayla and Justin loved up but how? Steve with Hope/Gina and Kate but for what reason? Victor in hospital but how? Lani and Kristen in a convent? How is that going to happen? Sorry, but, poor choice to just jump and go. Jump, go back.… Read more »

I hope long time viewers can get used to the idea that they will only be able to watch Days on NBC’s streaming service

Anne, there hasn’t been a statement that DAYS would only be available by streaming. That’s in addition to it’s TV airings, but of course, because of the impeachment trial, DAYS will be preempted, which means viewers will have to watch at the NBC website, NBC App or On Demand.

Peacock TV streaming begins in July.

One can also watch on Utube or Search, Google, Chrome, etc and type in Full episode, name of show and date for any show, any day. Love it, no ads.

Anne, so far both platforms i’m guessing, even NBC Exec Paul Teledgy wasn’t sure it would go there, but it has. No doubt Peacock streaming will be it’s final destination if NBC opens that hour to Talk or Cooking or News, they don’t exercise many options once a soap is cancelled. I’ll be signing up. I love no Ad’s option. Hopefully they’ll pile on available past episodes also, but knowing NBC, most likely not. At least it’s not officially gone even when/if it leaves the network.

Where did you hear that? The article Michael posted a couple days ago says exactly the opposite.

I hope not…. because that move is going to piss off some older mortals who have been literally watching Days from day one, and who aren’t as exactly tech savvy as their grandkids are. Some of them might not even have internet.

The Devil doesn’t do Twitter, though I did sign up for “email updates” on the Peacock website. Not that they have sent any yet.

If Peacock carries these episodes the same day for free that would be a good thing. Now if only ABC would do something similar… because it’s actually a lot harder to get an episode of GH on line than it is Days. (8 days late on ABC.com is not an acceptable solution)

I like that, dev—-The only irritant, in this “turn of events”, is Gina. I have never liked Hope, and I like Gina and her weird, non-palatable accent, even less.
Oh, wait—-spoke too soon—-there are a few more ‘irritants’, albeit Hope/Gina is at the top of the list.
Eric, with his sanctimonious, oh-woe is me, martyr-like facade, gets on my nerves, too. Don’t let me get started on pitiful Sarah—
Then, there’s Steve/Stefano. Really?? Not buying it—-especially when he butchers the Italian language.
Oh, woe is me!!

Celia I’m not sure why they made Steve Stevano, or why Kristian Alfonso seems like a weak actress not being able to pull off the Gina persona. It’s never worked or been amusing. Will is Sami’s son and necktie strangler or not, he should have guilt seduced Ben into having a roll-a-bout in that tiny cell. Deal with the angst after. The two Eeyore’s (Sarah and Eric) can stay gone. Nicole should have been Sami’s boozy, champagne drinking replacement. Instead she’s just dull and house wifey. And viewers continue to tune out. Falling below 2 million in the ratings is… Read more »

Well, whether people like what you say or not, I agree with you. I had no idea the radings had sunk so derply… Some of the charecters are not keeping en par—I suspect it’s because of the weak storylines. Many of these characters have morphed so drastically, it’s becoming a bit tedious—-nonetheless, I was realky getting into the show until the flashbacks. I don’t blame the actors. I have never liked looking back. I get the feeling this flashback thing was not originally on the menu—-it was a last minute do-over because so many of the integral issues in the… Read more »

Celia, dear, I’ve recently took to watching DAYS a couple of times a week when Y&R got so BORING. Some of my favorite soap actors, like Mary Beth Evans, being on was certainly a draw. I know it’ll take a while to put all the stories together but wanted to get your opinion on two actors/characters — Xander and Evan. Boy, could GH use some charisma like that. What do you think?

Celia
Guest

Hey, Soaphound, Y&R is MY soap—-There was not a day, during my College years, that I would’t rush to my dorm-room just to watch the recorded eps. Thus, it is such a let-down to witness the idiocy offered these days. What a fallacy!! The characters are puppets—-Theo? Worst actor that ever was. No charisma—-and, what a brat!!! I do not believe he is who he says he is!! Staged!! I’m glad you’re watching Days—-I may not like the back and forth struggle between “present-day” and “flashbacks”, but I do appreciate how it’s coming together—-I spoke too soon—- I do tend… Read more »

Celia, what’s happening on Y&R is heartbreaking to me. I used to watch back in the beginning in 1974 when every day was something to look forward to. NOW, I just dread when I see certain characters are going to be featured that day, especially Theo, Chance (another non-actor with good hair and nothing else), Conner (he makes Patty McCormack’s BAD SEED seem like Shirley Temple), and the new and desecrated Billy Abbott. I love Mark Grossman as Adam but he and Chelsea take over the show too often, leaving no time for Kevin, Chloe, Michael, Lauren, Gloria, Christine, Paul,… Read more »

Ohhhh—his name is Evan! LOL—I’ve been so busy—I’m sort of lost— Yeah, Soaphound—he is hunky!! Gorgeous man. I remember a time when I would ‘investigate’ every new character—-those were the carefree days!! Did you happen to read Jimh’s posts? He thinks Evan killed Jordan—-I do agree that this guy does have a dark side—-when someone is too good-looking; too good-to-be-true, there’s the potential of a Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde persona(e) hidden somewhere. The irony would really be “pungent” if Xander were gay. Imagine him finally coming out of the closet. I would love to see that!! What a diabolical fable the… Read more »

Judi Evans has always given it her all and I would move heaven and Earth to see Adrienne’s last curtain call.

If DAYS is interrupted in your area, it’s available On Demand, on the NBC website and the NBC App!

These episodes are important. They show what happened during the time jumped. Make your views count by watching the episodes via NBC’s website, App or On Demand. Illegal uploads don’t help the show and in the end those uncounted views hurt us. You’ve had questions. Now, get the answers.

It’s a great time to start watching DAYS!

I understand, 4ever, that the jump-period left a lot of ‘splainin to do’ .What I don’t understand is the ‘jump’ in the first place. I must admit that I have missed a few eps—-did I miss the explanation? I don’t pay attention to the ratings, nor do I ‘chase’ after them, but I trust @davlestev to know what’s up with the ratings. I love Days—-been watching since 1990 ( I was four, LOL). Believe it or not, I remember ‘stuff’—–so, I accepted the ‘jump’ and eagerly anticipated what was to follow. But, the flashbacks do not my interest arouse. At… Read more »

I agree with you…I also, think Justin/Hope would be a good pairing plus Ciara is a nice tie in for both of them, since he has been doing his usual failing job as an attorney trying to help Ben. Definitely, want Steve/Kayla back together, if they kept him with two eyes I wouldn’t complain either. When it’s done, I’d actually like to see him become Police Commissioner..

Do think Rolf did yet another mind switch and Adrienne thinks she is Bonnie Lockhart and vice versa which means Bonnie was killed instead!

Channing, it’s so unfortunate many people don’t let things play out before jumping to conclusions and or giving lip service. Even the writer who writes the TV Guide Cheers and Jeers section lambasted DAYS for offing the Last Blast crew on The DOOL App. He admitted on Twitter he had a deadline to meet so he didn’t have time to watch all the episodes. And the editor won’t allow a retraction.

Most has been spilled via spoilers then social media tweets. I personally will not watch because I don’t care to know how they got there..I just want some of the stupidity to end and am tired of so much valuable airtime being used for flashbacks and now, various characters having dreams. the end of the day, writer is back to long drawn out stories, tiresome triangles to create angst, bringing people back from the dead…how innovative was this time jump really?? still waiting for several story arcs that are approaching a year if not more (gina and that awful accent)… Read more »

I hate they are killing Adrienne off and firing Judi Evans, She is one of my all time favorites on Days. Then I assume they are going to use her liver to save that horrendous character Summer, since she said she has cirrhosis and the spoilers say that’s Adrienne’s organs save someone else. Why waste one the best Days’ characters to save one of the worst ones that ever existed on the show. I also can’t believe the people who think Stacy H is great as Kristin. She is way over the top and she can’t play the nice/sensitive side… Read more »

To be honest Freddie/Chandler/Stacey H. have performed outstandingly during this time jump..Wally was too OTT, I thought for a moment I was watching Rocky- “Adrienne”..I’m still 50/50 with time jump–too confusing in present/then past, 4 characters having dreams, 3 doppelgangers running around with more too follow, the returns from the dead.what this back week should show writers is what works–half way descent stories, with good acting is what people want. They need to give Mary Beth Evans more screen time with Stephen Nichols, the little they have had still shows the magical chemistry between them. They bring out the best… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
