THIS WEEK ON DAYS: A Shocking Confession, Two Proposals, And A Doppelgänger Trap!

Courtesy/NBC

NBC’s Days of our Lives is bringing the drama this week as several storylines take a significant turn!

According to the latest promo, John (Drake Hogestyn) is lured into a trap by Hattie (Deidre Hall), and instead of saving Marlena (Hall) from the loony bin, he gets a straight-jacket of his own!

Meanwhile, Abby (Marci Miller) and Chad (Billy Flynn), and Paul (Christopher Sean) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) both have several touching moments as both couples may be set to wed.

Finally, in a shocker, Brady (Eric Martsolf) is in for a surprise when Nicole (Arianne Zucker) blurts out that she is Deimos’ (Vincent Irizarry) killer! But is she?

Watch the teaser after the jump, and let us know which story you are most intrigued by in the comment section below!

As someone who has spend time in a Mental Health Unit the term loony bin is not so much offensive as outdated– there are some slang word and labels that should be retire- Mr. Fairman is aware of those pertaining to homosexuality, so too with those who suffer mental health problems— this is not PC gone a muck but rather society adjusting to a more informed time in history– yes this is only a soap site, but still, Loony Bin? Surely the writer of the article can use the correct term without damaging the point of the article Okay with… Read more »

Thank you! My son has been in mental health facilities on several occasions. I find this very offensive.

Mary…i like your idea of Tyler coming on as Stephano…but how about Theo(Andre taking both parts with a little added make up)…or why cant a woman posing as his unknown twin-Stephino-lol

Mary i too spent time in a mental health facilities after suffering a nervous breakdown 20 years ago…i am also in outpatient care for depression, anxiety and panic attacks and bipolar disorder…i try not to let too much bother me…someone on another now defunct soap site where someone who disliked my comments about a certain soap actress i was defending …called me a nut case who belonged in a nut house-i told them i rather be their than where they belonged!…

ITA. These outmoded terms need to be retired. I’m still surprised at how casually they are used on soaps, especially GH.

Shay

Well, with the exception of Laura’s catatonia, the entire concept of mental illness has always been considered a complete joke on GH, so why would the facility in which patients are treated be regarded with any respect? When one sees the likes of “inmates” like Heather, Franco and Fluke literally running the “asylum” with their assorted mirthful and malevolent hijinks, of course, the terms “nuthouse” and “loony bin” are highly befitting. But I seriously doubt any of us who watch these OTT characters confuse them with those suffering real-life ailments of the mind…or would express the actual institutions in which… Read more »

I don’t think anyone is trying to hurt you. The people they are talking about are NOT real. I have visited my friend in one, and we would never want to hurt anyone. As for Nicole, I agree 100 %. I want to see her leave happy, take the baby and go. I would like it to be with Brady, but I would hate to see him lose his job. Sadly I have seen plots from Re-Ron and I hold no hope. Let the murderer be someone evil, not Nicole. I have watched all this baby story, have become a… Read more »

I wasn’t hurt nor offended, I was merely pointing out to the author of this article they wouldn’t use the N word to describe black characters, nor would they use the F word to describe homosexual characters, therefore real or not, the use of the term loony bin to describe a place where people with a mental illness go to seek treatment is outdated. Mental illness is like any other illness and those who suffer it from it should be given understanding not mocking. And that was my point, there are other terms that would make the author’s point and… Read more »

I’d like to know who killed Deimos so we can then move on. It will be interesting to see Marlena and John together in the sanitarium.

I did mention Nicole as the killer because the actress is leaving the show…i suppose Sonny and Paul are getting married and its Sami who stops it and announces Will is alive???

Jimh
Guest

But maybe she isnt???…maybe the returning Stephano is to blame?…if they are just going to show Stephano’s hand i would like to see Hand’s Newman-ex Y&R get the part-lol

Jimh

If Stuart Damon was still acting and not retired i think he is the only actor who could be J.M. s replacement as Stephano if the character is really coming back…however, i did hear only his hand will be shown.

Mary SF

I was kinda hoping Tyler Christoper will be a cloned younger version of Stephano- RC is the type of writer to try to pull something like that off– I know JM is irreplaceable but still if we are going with the clone it really wouldn’t be the same character– oh well a girl can dream can’t she?

I’m kinda hoping (but it won’t happen) that what with all the many doppelgängers on this show (including Rafe’s doppelgänger) that it will turn out that Will’s entire recast was a secret doppelgänger all along. It would be great (but it won’t happen) if Marlena and John discover that the “real” Will is locked up in the padded room next to theirs, and has been held captive there for the past couple years. It would make a more interesting story (but it won’t happen) if Marlena and John bring back the “real” Will, who never got married to Sonny, never… Read more »

it was a surprising twist on Angelica having that heart attack… thereby limiting the caricature (s) , if you will, and seeing both Hattie and Bonnie step up to the plate , on how THEY will deal with the outcome. Bonnie was LOL FUN on Friday ep: as she told Angelica… “come and get it, bitch” so… at least with Angelica down … this gives us more acting prose and choice scenes for both Deidre and Judi. I say good for them… since they’ve done this before… it’s been easier to “swallow” . Bonnie and Hattie are both likeable enough… Read more »

The first Doppelganger story i believe happened on Edge Of Night involving Phil Capice in the early 1960’s…forget why these criminals had the original Phil replaced but i know it was much better done than today’s versions…back then Phil’s wife Louise told her father Winston that her husband would not ‘retire’ with her for the night(couldn’t say go to bed back then)…that’s because the impostors face may look like the real Phil’s face but the criminals and the guy posing as Phil knew the rest of his body didn’t look like the real Phil’s…so to make all less suspicious a… Read more »

“The Edge of Night” was written for many years by Henry Slesar who also wrote mystery novels and many of Alfred Hitchcock’s TV episodes. His “EON” stories were just as prolific as the equally unforgettable episodes of another soap – “Dark Shadows” – that hooked me on soaps back in the mid 1960’s.

Jimh
Guest
Jimh

In a way Dark Shadows did start out like a mystery soap somewhat like Edge with the mysterious disappearance of Liz’s husband,Burke being framed for a crime he didnt commit and who killed Bill Malloy plot…but the show was nearly cancelled until it was turned into a supernatural/horror soap…i have dolls made of several characters from the show…i sure miss both soaps…im happy DC saved the DS episodes…if only Edge had done the same and saved theirs!

Thank god Dark Shadows’ ENTIRE series is available on DVD. I rewatch it over and over year after year – in dribs and drabs. Those stories still hold up today!

You bring back many memories of days gone by, jimh.
Those were the days.

Having said that, I hate that Ari is leaving after so many years. Hard to lose such a beautiful familiar face. I do hope she leaves free and clear with her baby.

I am not enjoying the doppelgänger stories at all.
Now John will also be in restraints at the institution? Not conducive to suspense or good drama.

Shay

My first memories of soap doppelgangers were Grant Putnam/Andrei Chernin on GH and later, Days’ Tony/Andre DeMera….now they seem so commonplace that they’ve rather lost their impact…especially with all that masked nonsense Ron C. implemented on GH.

Jimh
Guest

ya…the doubles stories have run their course.Days did a good one back in the 70s but it involved the actress’s real life twin who played her twin on the show…back in the 60s Dark Shadows did doppelgangers too but those were fun..i watch British soap Coronation Street and i never see them do doppelgangers…its a little more down to earth…however, my Corrie is getting a bit over run by criminals…

jimh, glad to see some love for Coronation Street. I’m on the Canadian border and see it on Canadian TV. So well written and well paced! No flashbacks, no SORAS, no 1% Richie Ritches, no Uber Villains with multiple islands unlimited henchpeople and money. Its a half hour with twice cast of any US soap. Large ensemble scenes each episodes so everyone works and at least half the cast has a storyline. No lingering, stories get wrapped up in no more three months so if you don’t like something you aren’t tortured by a full year of Sonny saying Morgan… Read more »

Well NBC Sucks! Unlike Y&R and GH which were preempted today. NBC decided to show DAYS, then after 14 minutes, in the middle of Nicole’s flashback, cut to Lester Holt, then interviews with LOSERS in a field in Oregon to get their feelings about the eclipse. I watch NOTHING on NBC except local news an DAYS, and after today will boycott WAVY news . Please post a complete description of the episode so us on the East Coast know what happened on THE MOST IMPORTANT EPISODE OF DAYS THIS YEAR!!!

It didn’t air as scheduled in my area. It was on another NBC channel, but of course DVR didn’t record that because it wasn’t labeled as Days. I think NBC should not have shown Days at all.

My “Days” 1. Lucas, my man : as soon as you took that shot… I immediately started welling up. is this the long promised story arc ? well, it grabbed on to me. it was a nice touch to see Chloe back on the scene. 2. Abe, my man : the look Theo shot back at him was so piercing… ( Abe is telling him he cannot “work” with or be with the DiMera ) this is close to the heart. dag! as he told Theo… I wish your mom was here. Theo tells his dad he’d do it all… Read more »

So much of what you said I agree with. I love the Kate/Roman tease! They were so great together before getting separated in the Salem Serial killer storyline. (naturally their union meat Lucas was Roma’s son in law and stepson simultaneously!!!) I love a good twin storyline. It was looking like an episode of PINKY AND THE BRAIN with Morgan Fairchild as the Brain saddled with two Pinkies. I’m loving DOOL. Ron always gives the actors something to play. For too long DOOL was two ppl having coffee talking about what’s happening to other ppl. Scripts work when characters are… Read more »

In Nicole’s perceived “memory” of what occurred that night, it really looked like, technically, Deimos accidentally stabbed himself while struggling with the Knife while Nicole was holding it. He sort of “lunged” into it ~ many years ago it was said that Lana Turner’s daughter was holding a Knife when her mom’s lover kind of “walked into” it – maybe they are basing this scene on something reminiscent of that event ~

I watched a little of today’s episode (Wednesday, 8/23) and the only character/part that I found interesting was Lucas. I liked his interaction with Kate when he went to the DiMera mansion and Kate found out that he had been drinking. As much as I like Chad, I can’t stomach NuAbigail. Kate is right, she is a Damsel that constantly needs saving. I find nothing appealing about the actress or the character. In my opinion, the couple has zero chemistry.

Gotta agree with both of you. Every time I see nuAbby on the screen, my first thought is, “wait, who is that? oh yeah, right, that’s SUPPOSED TO BE Abby.” I must say that as much as I liked Casey Deidrick as Chad, it’s still a pleasure to watch Billy Flynn in that role, too, as he gives the character a likeable depth and a more caring demeanor to Chad. Billy Flynn appears to have enough range that he could have made a good fit as a recast for almost any of the male characters on the show. I get… Read more »

kudos to Abs and Chad.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
