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.

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.

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…

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!

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

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

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

Dmitri

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!

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

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.

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.

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).

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.

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..

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.

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

The post via Facebook read: “Army Veteran, Veterans Rights Activist, Film and Television Actor Kevin Dobson has passed away. He was 77 Years Old. Condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace… March 18 1943-September 6 2020.'”   Dobson was the former chairman of the organization.

During his career in primetime, Kevin was also widely known for his work on the crime show, Kojak from 1973 to 1978, playing Detective Bobby Crocker working alongside Telly Savalas.   Earlier in his TV career he appeared on: The Mod SquadEmergency! and Cannon.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors. In 2008, DAYS hired him to play Mickey Horton after two other actors did not work out replacing, the original Mickey,  John Clarke, who retired, In shorter stints, Kevin played Governor Harrison Brooks on One Life to Live in 2003. and Judge Devin Owens on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2006.

He is survived by his wife Susan and his three children, Sean Dobson, Patrick Dobson and Mariah Dobson.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

Photo: JPI

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
