THIS WEEK: DAYS Stefano Gets Shot! But, Who Pulled the Trigger? And Will the Phoenix Rise Again?

Courtesy/NBC

This week on Days of our Lives, you can clearly see where all the plot lines over the past several weeks have been leading up to you when Stefano DiMera (Joe Mascolo) is shot!  But with so many angry Salemites now gunning for the evil mastermind for the havoc he has caused in their lives for decades, who do you think will be the one who actually pulled the trigger?

Abe wants him dead and people over heard him say that, not good.  Bo, as you will see in the promo just might take matter in to his own hands.  EJ is done with Stefano’s lies and machinations.   Hope, Kate, Marlena, Will, Rafe all have reasons and motives! What about Celeste or someone no one thought of?   Weigh-in!

Then the question becomes, if Stefano gets a bullet, and only ends up with a hospital visit and does not die?  How would the viewers feel about that?   Do you think it’s time for  Stefano to meet his maker, after all he has perpetrated on the good people of Salem?  Or would be “die” only to rise again as the Phoenix does, time after time?    Let us know your thoughts!   Now watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS to get see if you can figure out who shoots Stefano!

I never, ever want to see Stefano die! If he does, I hope it “doesn’t take”, to quote Rolf. Stefano and Victor are the two best characters on the show.

I hope it’s FauxCeleste who shoots him. She’s terrible in the role and I’d like to see her gone ASAP!

i love Stefan too. You know who I think it was? I think Lexie shot him. What does she have to lose? Look how she said goodbye to him after she overheard?

I totally agree about Lexie being the.shooter, particularily with her leaving Days. It would be a great twist in the storyline.

Dee

That was my first thought as well. she left a note downstairs for Abe, she did not go to bed!

I LOVE DAYS ,and would love to see stefano get wat he deserves ,but not in death, it would ruin the show if he died ,but he needs to pay for wat he has done to e1 in salem…..

Lexie! She should be the one to do him in, so he can’t continue his reign of terror after she’s gone.
No offense to Joe Mascolo, but it’s time for Stefano to be gone for good!

I was thinking Abe, but Lexie is an excellent and obvious choice since she’s already leaving the show.

I too hope Stefano is gone for good. I just started watching on a regular basis and this character has been such a one-note. I FF’d through all the Princess and pauper scenes because I couldn’t stand him (well, Hope and John either…LOL). Time for Stefano to go and Mascolo to retire.

I agree. Lexie might’ve pulled the trigger. She’s, unfortunately, leaving the show anyway.

He’s not dead the CIA took stefano after he was shot…saved him so he can go after Ian

what i want to know is why they never mention that John and Stefano are bros. i BELIEVE jOHN IS EJ DAD!

He’s definitely not dead. Either u were right about the CIA or he had a clone of himself ( Luke he did with Rafe. I’m not sure if Lexie could’ve had the heart to do it. I have a strange feeling it was Ian. He WILL come back at some point. The show needs his character- between what will happen with Chad and the whole background story behind EJ not being his son etc. I’ve been watching Days for 28 years and the show is naked without him

Due to his illness in his personal life, he has to take a break. CIA will bring him back at a time when he is able, The Phonix will rise again…

Phoenix…..Phonix was a fraudian slip, “Phoney” death! How many trimes has this happened for him??? He will be back, and I can’t wait..

This may sound crazy but I think it’s Lexie that shoots Stefano! Now in a way, it can be Celeste! My money is on Lexie!

Jared

I think it would be sweet justice if Lexie is the one to take Stefano out. I need a break from Stefano anyway. People don’t die in Salem, so they can bring him back in a few years when they need him for a new umbrella mystery.

I agree with Stephanie, with one reservation. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Days. I have watched this show for more years than I care to admit to. I have remained loyal through the many ups and downs in the Salem writing department. During these difficult soap times, it is vital that soaps remain compelling, and find new ways to attain relevance. Days’ writers really need to stop re-treading old story lines that worked ages ago, but are no longer interesting- even to long time viewers. With that in mind, it would be pertinent to finally kill off Stefano, and allow the… Read more »

Thank You…. Intriguing writing. your words… “the hourglass isn’t going to trickle down forever….” Enliven us back… to the Tom and Alice Horton spirit. My take on Stefano… i want him to stay on DAYS… COULD THIS BE… THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY… for a new reign… a new helm… taking command of the Dimera Enterprise… ALA… Eileen Davidson! Returning as KRISTEN?!?! TO Perfect this juggernaut powerhouse…. bring back jason brooks as Peter… flirtatious, simmering sensuality… for Jenn! remember those days? Kristen as an adversarie, even ally, for Salem.. and vying for John’s affections… would definately give us Marlena… her passion back.… Read more »

since DAYS.. is getting “Pressed”. i can’t leave out Nicole… bar none.. she’s right up there as intelligent smart.. takes no prisoners… ok.. except when it comes to wanting LOVE. EJ – Brady – Rafe. Wow. Now, if only, they’d just make her mother alive… Fay. doesn’t this reak of drama.. Serial… what drives Nicole? FAMILY? IMO.. days core is Nicole and Sammi… now if they’d just KEEP Carrie… this threesome… would drive, steer DAYS collectively. Just have FAY show up…. remember when she was a love interest for ABE at one time? this would be hot… finally, Kayla stuck… Read more »

Remember Jenn’s Mother… Dr. Laura…. LOL… she was pure camp.. classic Serial…. Miss Egg Shells. Jenn was just beside herself. Fragile neurotic.. there were many flights Laura had left in her..

Didn’t Laura look good with Bill! i thought so… when they returned forn Grans’ funteral. I also liked the chemistry with Bill and Kate. this would really rock Dr. Laura’s Boat.

who cares about stefano dimera. i think they should kill him off. enough already of stefano getting away with everything. i love joseph mascalo but he needs to go or retire. he never pays for his crimes. he probably won’t die. thats what i heard. he will probably rise again from the dead. i think bo melanie or celeste shot stefano. or maybe someone that we don’t expect shot stefano.

Andy
Guest

That’s why I love his character bc he always gets away with stuff. I always root for him

how long have u watched?

marknsprmo

With Molly Burnett leaving in June, my best guess is that Melanie is the shooter.

Dmitri
Guest

But she would never do that to her boyfriend’s father. Besides, he has never directly targeted her (unless you count Maggie accidentally being shot last summer).

Glad to see DOOL is improving. I love this show and have watched on/off for over 30 years!

I read that Joseph Mascolo was retiring, so…I think they should kill off Stefano. He is irreplacable in my book. I too would like to see the shooter be Lexie if indeed her character is being killed off (permanently). He deserves it. That said, I love both actors and the characters Stefano and Lexi and I will miss them. It will make for great story though, which this show really needs.

The Pheonix shall rise no more!

Patrick

Reading this stuff, makes me anxious. it’s all plot, storied potential. oh no. just not with my favorite actor…. what to do! STEFANO IS IRREPLACEABLE. I likened him to one of the few shakespeares of daytime. As for Lexie… such an enigmatic… loving presence… and she should remain as such… not taking out her father. for all his faults… Lexie loved her father. yeah, we all have the goody two shoes.. but, Lexie, didn’t come off as sugary sweet… she remained a constant fixture on the canvas. i’ll miss that Isaac doesn’t have his mother…. KUDOS to Renee Jones… remember… Read more »

I love Stefano he makes the show. Please don’t let him die and EJ should be Stefano son. The one thing I don’t like is Carrie & Rafe. Carrie makes me sick going with her sister’s husband what’s good about that??? sure doesn’t make her the good one Austin should get rid of her and not shed a tear. I will miss Lexie wish she didn’t have to die, but no-one could take her place. Don’t let her shoot Stefano , she is his daughter let her die being a good person.

Dmitri
Guest

I hope it is either Celeste or Ian! Maybe Lexie, too!

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

i hope it wasn’t Celeste.. just cause Lexie is “leaving”. God.. wasn’t Celeste, Tanya Boyd… Crock pot sensual? all she had to do was walk in to a room… ready to spar… with tarot cards in her purse.

it’s takiing away history… Celeste and Fay…. Lexie and Nicole’s Mothers.

don’t let it be Melanie either… as she and dr. carly manning could return someday.

leave something for us fans to ponder. possibilities, and potential down the road.

crock pot… = meant to say pressure cooker sensual. she was truly a lioness with her cubs. Lexie.

Stefano fakes his death. Joe takes a summer vacation. Stefano returns and seeks revenge. Days wouldn’t be Days without Stefano.

Stefano is the phoenix…he’ll be back. I don’t know if someone else wrote that before me – I didn’t read all the comments. I’ve been watching this show since the mid 70’s and he’s returned before.

A great line would be EJ shot him, now he’s in charge and not a Dimera but Lexi is the only other person who knows the truth. She dies, Stefano dies – EJ runs the family business…and the phoenix rises again…

Lexie will be the one to pull the trigger!!!

I wish Jack D. pulled the trigger. I never wanted Whack Jack back on DOOL! What a freakin’ corn-ball! I wanted Jen w/ Daniel to be together. I wanted more story lines for the Carvers, but Lexie’s leaving.

I think it should be the guy that Stephano was going to make the illegal arms deal with and his pose as payback for setting them up with the CIA.

cherrub3

After about 30 years of watching Days I would like to see them do something unpredictable with this but my best guess would be Kate because just like Stephano she always gets away with attempted murder.

It’s going to be Lexie who will shot Stefino. When she found out what he did to her by keeping her in the celler.

If they kill off stefano then the producers are retards. He makes the show. Without him their is no show. Every time he wasn’t on the show it wasn’t interesting at all. I always root for him and things he does. I love it. He keeps the show interesting

One by one the characters confront Stefano but rationalize why they shouldn’t or can’t bring themselves to shoot him. It seems ridiculous that they don’t see or run into each other. But maybe they do. Will is the only one who displays raw emotions, he’s acting impulsively and not capable of thinking this through rationally. He picks up the gun, shoots, misses and flees. The others lingered closely after leaving and they see Will enter or leave and heard the gun shot. They return to the mansion not because they have second thoughts that they should kill Stefano, but they… Read more »

One thing I know from watching Days for 26 years………..the shooter WAS NOT anyone that was staring at their gun this past week (so Marlena is out). So the Lexie guesses are probable…….Celeste maybe……….Cameron?……….or maybe someone totally unexpected? Kayla with the gun from the Brady Pub safe (not safe a place).

Mary

well i think WILL or EJ did it but maybe i wrong but you all r right i think in a few years they will bring him back.But I LOVE DAYS.I have been watching this soap for 20 years and i love it i wish that the would bring SHAWN&BELL back.

Lori
Guest

I totally think Lexie! It makes the most sense to me. She has motive more than anyone. Also, Days spent too much time establishing alibi’s for each of the 8 suspects. I’ve been thinking Lexie all weekend. I watched the show today (Monday) and while she put on a good act when she heard the news of Stefano’s death it was later revealed that the gun used in the murder is registered to Abe! She left a note for Abe saying that she was going to bed. He never checked on her which gave her the perfect time to run… Read more »

I’m almost 50 years of age and I’ve retired from law enforcement..I love stefano dimera.. Please allow stefano to remain on Days just like Alice Horton did long as Joseph mascola’s living he needs be on days.. Stefano dimeara is the sole and only reason many many many of us watch Days..Take stefano off days and days will cease to remain on TV..

why would lexie kill her own father she loved her father let’s leave lexie out of this as a suspect she’s dead leave lexie be as a good person and not as a killer since peter reckell is leaving days of our lives why don’t we name bo as stephano’s killer that makes more sense

i love that charater stephano we need to keep stephano he is the best villian for days of our lives without stephano days of our lives would be boring without him please let stephano come back again keep on rising like the pheonix forever always keep the pheonix alive

I hope Stefano is not really dead. With all the cuts made on Days, I am getting sick of the Ups and Downs on it. I love the DeMearas and especially Stefano. Does it have anything to do with the actress who plays Billie calling him a bad actor on a talk show? I wish they’d get rid of her character. She’s boring and worn out for the role. Stefano and EJ will always be young and vibrant. Bring Tony back too.

Days of our lives without Stefano is not Days! I’ve been watching Days for over 38 years, no Stefano no Days! and no Bo? why? keep the old timers, the new kidz aren’t so interesting, their too young, if you must, bring in people around the age of 35-45 ….. who wants to watch 18 year olds who can’t act? Sami, she’s the BEST!!!!

As much as I love to watch Stefano…lets be realistic, the man is 83 yrs of age. Time he retired to enjoy the rest of his days with his family & relaxing. I thank him for many years of enjoyment and wish him well.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
