THIS WEEK ON DAYS: Kristen Hatches A Despicable Plot Before She Leaves Salem!

Courtesy/NBC

Snatching women’s unborn babies, may be a through-line for this year’s November Sweeps on the soaps!

This week on Days of of our Lives, after being dumped by Brady (Eric Martsolf) yet again, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) overhears Theresa (Jen Lilley) tell Anne Milbauer (Meredith Scott Lynn) in the park that she is pregnant with Brady’s child!  This sets off Kristen’s rage, and she goes on a rampage!

Now from the newly released promo from NBC, Kristen is about to do something diabolical!  As previewed in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, “While Theresa is walking in the park alone, she is knocked out and abducted by two thugs.  It soon becomes  clear that Kristen has very dark plans for her arch rival.”

From the looks of it, is Kristen going to take Theresa’ s embryo right out of her, and have it implanted into her? Is that what is going down?  Watch the promo, and then weigh-in as we get ready to say goodbye again this week to Eileen Davidson as Kristen, as her recent run comes to an end (even though it was filmed five months ago).

Omg, wow, Kirsten sure knows how to leave Salem USA in a Big Bang way.lol I assume the powers that be are setting in place the big next return of Kiresten Blake Dimera which will or should be any where from nine-twelve months for now since the actress has just started filming the real house wives show and most recently made a return to Y&R.

I want Kristen Dimera to kill Theresa, and dump her body. Theresa is very annoying and time for her to go. Eileen Davidson will be back very soon on Days Of our Lives. Eileen told soap opera digest a few weeks ago, that she will come back to days for 3 month storyline arcs, when she is available. Like susan Banks always says Kristen is mean mean mean, LOL

Can’t stand Theresa. Would love to see Anne and Kristen mop the floor with the useless narcissist gnat. Nothing against the actress. I just can’t stand the character.

I can’t stand the character. Eve is just as bad-which is unfortunate because Kassie DePaiva is a talented actress. Neither have any redeeming qualities.

Eve just is stuck in a dumb story worrying about dreary Paige! JJ needs a better story and love interest too. But Theresa is just wretched and that Pubehead anne is even worse they aren’t even funny.

I agree. Not a fan of the actress who portrays Paige. At first, I liked her. Now, her facial expressions just make the character appear boring, dull, and miserable. The writers can still have a cute, shy character in Paige without her acting aggravated and annoyed all of the time. I agree, Kassie needs a much better storyline. I like Anne when she gives Jennifer a hard time. But, let’s face it, Anne would have been fired a long time ago as the Director of HR with her antics and attitude. Can’t stand Theresa. Could care less if the character… Read more »

I think the show has too many “bad gals” on it – and I also agree that the character of Paige is about as exciting as a box of kleenex.
As for Eve, as portrayed by Kassie DePaiva, they need to write something a tad more interesting that the fact that she doesn’t approve of Paige’s dating JJ. It’s a storyline that’s kind of burnt out already ~

Is that even possible, to take an embryo from in uterus and implant into another one without killing it? Oh well I guess on soaps anything is possible— I just feel sorry for the child because if it makes it to term– either way it has one mess up mother.

Did Kristen even sleep with Brady this return visit…i did miss a couple of episodes…i dont recall them sleeping together recently and if they didnt how is she going to explain this child is his…would she say she made a withdraw from The Man Surplus Bank? As i said i missed a couple of episodes and the ones i watched since Eileens latest return ive never seen Kristen and Brady in bed together this time around!…Am i wrong…you are very good at knowing these things and dependable so thats why i picked you for the answer…

4ever DAYS– my tootsies are just fine your about yours jimh? As 4 ever DAYS stated no they haven’t slept together, my theory is she will tell him she used the same drug on him as she gave Eric and he forgot they had sex—-Knowing her history, he will be uncertain if she is lying or not– the DNA test will say he is the father and he wouldn’t think to challenge who the mother is, so he will buy her story that she drugged him. Or she might actually drug him, like Sami did Austin. This is Days so… Read more »

This is the last reply I had from you so I’m using it– haven’t seen you post anything for most of November– that could be for many reasons, you stopped coming to this site, you gave up on the soaps, you’re on vacation, busy, or dealing with some kind of personal crisis— not my business which or any, but just wanted to know I was thinking about you, hope all is well, and if not, that it soon will be especially with holidays around the corner– keeping you in my prayers– Mary SF

I have no idea if embryo transfer between women is possible in reality. But, it was done on OLTL about 30 years ago when a pregnant Samantha Vernon Garretson was found face down at the bottom of a swimming pool and declared brain dead. The embryo was transferred into Delilah Ralston who carried the pregnancy to term and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. I think GH did a similar story of an embryo transfer between a character named Dominique and Lucy Coe. I have to agree with you. Neither Kristen nor Theresa is “mother” material.

I had to reply here. What could be more interesting than Theresa thinking she lost the baby is that she was implanted with the embryo of Eric (her first cousin) and Kristen!

Do they dare go there?

You know women have carried babies for relatives…one woman once carried her daughters child…so your story suggestion is possible…and by the way im not too happy getting a year older…i still like to think im 17…i only wish my body thought the same way…lol…but thanks…your always a joy to here from 4everDays!!!

You are absolutely correct Mary…you always make good sense…of course Kristen will drug him…she’ll probably do that before she leaves Salem…i knew i could depend on you for the answer…thanks!!!

Will Theresa tell Kristen ‘Leggo my Eggo’…lol…anyway, what is with these similiar baby storylines at Days and GH…is Kristen really Tina, GHs Nina’s faternal twin…lol…seriously, harming a female to steal a womans unborn baby is a bit too dark and gruesome for my taste but im probably in the minority here…but it wouldnt be the first time…i like Kristen and knew she wouldnt leave Salem without creating some trouble…i originally thought she had gotten pregnant by Eric and attempts to pass that child off as Bradys which wouldve worked better…i guess in a way they are kind of using my… Read more »

I SO agree with this post!!!! I originally thought that after Kristen hooked up with Eric, then Brady, when she left Salem, that she would return with a child in tow. Can u imagine Marlena’s horror at Kristen being her grandchild’s mother!!! I was salivating at the possibility of Kristen being pregnant by Eric, bc she has no kids and the DiMera Legacy needs to be carried on….Kristen aint gettin any younger!!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wouldve loved Marlena’s reaction…the show really missed it here…lots of good drama possibilities like Eric trying to cope raising a child thats a product of rape just as he decides to return to the priesthood, Marlena difficulty accepting a grandchild of her no.1 enemy…Brady believing this child his and becomes attached to him then months later learning he isnt his son and unable to let him go…so much drama had it turned out this way!!!

Of course they got the idea from you Jimh…TPTM just put their own twist to it.
I agree with you. This storyline, as the one on GH is too disturbing for human consumption, at least, this human. You are definitely not in the minority, trust me.
Thank you for your well -wishes, jimh. It is hard getting into the swing of this after a 6-month maternity leave….later, friend.

Jimh, they should hire us as story consultants!!! That Eric/Kristen/Brady paternity scenario would’ve brought months of drama and story possibilities!!!! Uggh!!!!

And this is supposed to make us like Theresa or feel an iota of sympathy for her? LOL! Not gonna happen!!! She enabled & encouraged Brady to use drugs while using him for his money, tried to blackmail John for a million bucks then tried to kill him, then tried to kill him again with that syringe, then calls him a vegetable umpteen times, then when she finds out she’s pregnant refers to the baby as a “get out of jail free card” – AND she only knew she was pregnant for a few hours – a day TOPS before… Read more »

I disagree.

Time has a way of changing things. There’s a lot we don’t know about Theresa. If she is allowed to stay in Salem, I believe the masses will be in full support of Theresa in all her DAYS!

I already love her and the victimization of Theresa will be a turning point for the fans to see her true character!

I like your post, though! Your passion is great!!!

In no way, shape nor form, is Theresa a “victim” of anyone other than Kristen and she’s a lunatic, so that’s not really a fair comparison. LOL!

I guess I’m heartless and cruel because I don’t care about Theresa and don’t have any sympathy for her after she tried to kill John. Ditto for Kristen, I hope Eileen never returns to DAYS.

I love Jen and she is a wonderful actress or we would not detest her like we do but it is time to put a stop to the insanity. SHE NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!!!! She has ruined the fragile father/son relationship between John and Brady, she had Brady back on drugs and booze and had him thinking he had nearly killed his father when in fact it was her all for an avenue to get to Brady’s money. The thought of Kristin carrying Brady’s baby makes me sick. If the fetus survives it is leaving the door wide open for… Read more »

No fault to the actresses but the sisters Donovan need their parents to stop them from their stupid moves. So they need to go back to CA. like yesterday. They were portrayed in a better light back in the day! I also prefer Eileen Davidson as Ashley Abbott #YR. Anyone who wrecks the relationship between John & Brady Black needs to go from #DAYS pronto! That includes Kristin & Theresa! It seems to me the writers aren’t giving the vets like Drake Hogestyn the respect they deserve by not giving them GOOD story lines & more air time. For example,John… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
