It’s a very big day for long time fans of EJami on NBC’s Days of our Lives!  When the stage is set for fireworks to explode, and their relationship possibly to implode on today’s episode!

The set-up has the incriminating photos of EJ (James Scott) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) in the throes of passion in an envelope that Sami (Alison Sweeney) got her hands on when it was slipped under the door at the DiMera mansion!

As Alison Sweeney has previewed in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, this is one of her all-time favorite episodes that she has been a part of in her over 20 years with the soap.

Sweeney also revealed: “The whole first half of the show is just the two of us in these really long scenes together dealing with Sami finding out what EJ had done.  It’s incredible.”

Alison later added, “I feel there was not-one stone left unturned in the conflict between the two as the two of then have it out over his unfaithfulness.”

So just how do you think this episode will in the end play itself out?  Will Sami forgive EJ? Will it be splittsville?  Look for Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kate Mansi (Abigail) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) to also appear later in the show.  We will have more coverage on this special episode this evening.

Well…he raped her, and she shot him in the head….I dont see how a little boink with some chick with daddy issues is worse than either of those things. I am sure they can get past it.

Boink? How crass. Abbi is pregnant, how bourgeois , …as I said, typically male.

I hope it does happen that way, …Abni pregnant and loses the baby…..Sami leaves EJ…..Abbi completely disappears…is this entire episode imaginary?

Crass?? EJ’s 85 year old father called it “banging”! It was not making love because they are not in love. It was what it was…boinking, banging, bumping uglies…whatever word or term applies.

You’re right. I prefer the term “hump” myself,

I am looking forward to the episode, most specifically, the portrayal from James Scott as EJ Dimera. James brings his all to each and every scene, has chemistry with everyone on the show. I’ve always thought that Sami was too immature for EJ. For someone who is head of a successful company, has 4 children, etc., she acts like a child most of the time. For example, when she pouted about Will and Sonny having a nicer wedding than her and EJ. I just have never cared for the character. I think Kelly Sullivan (ex Connie/Kate from GH) would be… Read more »

Gotta hand it to Ali Sweeney, just went home for lunch and watched today’s episode. AMAZING! Way to go to everyone who was featured on today’s show!

Sami and E.J. deserve each other…didnt he rape her…didnt she shoot him…and yet they still wuv each other…so little Abigail is what it takes to break them up for good? Well, if they arent leaving town together…maybe on the run after Nick is found murdered, then i guess they will split up!!!…lol

You are right, jimh. You always are . You always make sense. EJ’s and Sami’s horrific crimes are indisputable. Neither of them is a favorite to me personally. However, they have become accepted fixtures in our homes….it took a while. The majority of viewers like them, as I like you, jimh…lol…really!!! You are also right in what you are implying…that it takes Abigil to break them up? I get it….nothing could shake them loose….if a relationship is strong, then that love should be able to surmount everything. But, in my limited experience in the ways of love and relationships; deceit,… Read more »

Late to DAYS as I watched other now-cancelled soaps in the day, but since I have come to Salem, I have not been disappointed in how DAYS builds suspense and delivers these special episodes. Knowing the histories, I do understand infidelity may seem unlikely to break the camel’s back for EJ and Sami, but at least this is a very human real conflict… not about surprise resurrections, mistaken identities, or endless back-and-forth flirtations. I am looking forward to this.

As I stated last week, I don’t think this is Stefano’s doing. I may be wrong but Percy slipped the pictures under the door.

I cannot believe a show would hype a dream sequence this much. It feels as if the show has lost all creative direction. I love soaps and it’s sad to see Days reduced to this.

I was disappointed it was a dream sequence, too. Wonder when the true reveal will take place, the wedding in May, probably. May sweeps.

Perhaps they are preparing us…pave the way, per se, to rough waters? But isn’t mayhem the writers’s scope? ….or the imagery was devised to keep us in suspense and keep watching. Just my opinion …..

What a rip off– hate when they pull that stunt– was royally ticked off– the actors will have footage for next year Emmy reel and that’s the only good thing to come of it. But for me two thumbs down, boo hiss– loved it until the twist then hated it.

It was a fake out. At about the 35 minute mark, we all find out that EJ is imagining this. I get that Alison Sweeney is proud of her work, and James Scott’s, but at the end of the day, Sami is still clueless, EJ is still frightened, and the secret has yet to be revealed. I didn’t realize it was all in EJ’s imagination until he went over to Abby’s, and their dialogue didn’t ring true at all. Up till then, I thought JS and AS were good, though I thought AS needed some tears streaming down her face,… Read more »

I agree about the crying/yelling. I’ve never been a fan of Ali’s; but, I do think this episode was one of her best. James Scott always delivers. I think he could carry anyone through a scene.

I couldn’t agree more about the TPTB making all the wrong choices. To hype a dream sequence the way they did was ridiculous. The show was a total waste of time — though I immensely enjoyed seeing Abs thrown over the staircase. If only that could happen every day.

I cannot WAIT for this! The show, as much as I love it, sometimes moves a bit slowly. But when the “stuff” hits the fan, it’s great. And this promises to be mindblowing. Abigail better not have her hair in a bun next time she sees Sami. Sami is likely to pull it right off her head. And I’m so looking forward to listening to Jenn blather about it all. I don’t like Abigail, but I sorta feel sorry her since she has that smug, self-congratulatory harridan as a mother. And without a doubt, Jenn will make it all about… Read more »

Used up cow??? Wow…I sense some jealousy towards the fresh faced Ms. Mansi. While I hate the direction the show often takes Abigail, sympathy for Sami is a bit much. She was fairly “used up” by the time she was 18…..sleeping with Lucas, rapingAustin, being raped by Alan, etc.

Exactly, not only did it waste our time it ruin the eventually true reveal because honestly those scenes before Marlena came in were brilliant and so beautifully acted and heart wrenching– nothing they will do when it is the real reveal will move me– so they ruined these scenes by making them fake, and ruined future scenes because nothing would top the fake ones— why or why do this writers do this stunt writing when they know how it ticks viewers off. I’m mad enough that I am considering boycotting DAYS because I don’t want to reward stunt writing that… Read more »

I loved the fake out!

What was so great about it was the fact that we know that EJ feels that Abby is pregnant.

Mary SF
Guest

You do realize none of those scenes really happened and it was only what EJ imagine what would happen if Sami saw the picture? Sami is still in the dark about the affair, but I am sure the truth will come out eventually, but just not today.

FAS
Guest
FAS

Yes, I do now. But, Mary SF I was typing and posting while watching…lol…then I realized and asked if it was imaginary…they got me hook, line and sinker…Ha Ha

FAS
Guest
FAS

My mother was watching with me. She realized it before I did…we were going at it back and forth…lol…Moms are always right. And, you are right, Mary, the truth is bound to come out. I believe that Abbi is over her wanton urges for EJ, or so she says(unless she is kidding herself), so a pairing there might not be feasible when Sweeney leaves. A Sami recast, perhaps?

boes
Guest

Well THAT was a disappointment, although I’m also glad that this isn’t the way it will play out. But still, essentially a waste of time and talent.

I will say, though, that I can never get enough of anyone, anytime, anywhere, pushing Abigail off any staircase. The higher, the better. After all, if she lands on her head there will be no permanent damage. Of course, the best would be if Jenn broke her fall and Abigail landed squarely in her big mouth.
Now THAT is a dream!

FAS

I am just wondering….Jen found the drugs in Daniel’s apartment and is in painful disbelief?!?!?! Lol …..what are the chance she will also find the planted, hidden bug (camera)? I hope she realizes that the same person who has framed Daniel also planted the pills. But, knowing Jen, she will assume the worst about Daniel, as is her wont.

Well, we now know that it is about Liam’s first love interest, wife etc…an obsession which manifests itself with women who bear a resemblance to his first love. However, I object…Jen is too old, for one…secondly Jen cannot hold a candle to Dorothy.(is that her name?)… This is a very young woman in comparison to Jen…at least 20 years. But, considering Lism’s delusional personality and mental issues, any blonde will do, I guess. The brain is a complex network… So, now, The perils of Jennifer continue…so scary!! What a dumb storyline….Watch out, a Jen …the -Boogie -Man-a-comin’ I would like… Read more »

EJAMI FOREVER! I know it will never happen but I don’t want Sami to find out! Why can’t Sami and EJ just be together? Why is someone always tearing them apart? Why can’t Abigail move to Switzerland and leave Ejami in peace? We only have a year left with Allison, can the writers just please let them be together for that entire time? We Ejami die hards have waited long enough! Australia loves Ejami!

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

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?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
