It’s Lexie. She has nothing to lose at this point. She’s dying anyway. This would be retribution for what Stefano did to her in those tunnels all those year’s ago. She may love her Father, but she’s not about to let him get away with killing her either!

My first thought when I knew he was getting shot was that it would be Lexie, everyone else was too obvious, but now I’m kind of wavering. Maybe Agent Harmon?!? Or because we got news that he’s leaving the show, maybe Ian.

I’m thinking Ian – As a way to save Kate.

I think Ian did it! Didn’t he have a Phoenix emblem on his walking stick? There is a connection there somewhere besides Kate……

Either Lexie or the feds got wind of the plots and faked his death.

I am caught between Lexie and Celeste. I can see Lexie doing it out of anger for her own death sentence but, also see Celeste doing it for his part in Lexie’s illness.

Hopefully, it will be Lexie who shot jim to protect her family and friends. And she wouldnt pay for it cause she will be dead very soon. And we know he isnt dead cause in an interview Joe said he is already in future story, so much for keeping silent!

Lexi is to good to kill anyone. She loved her father, at their last visit she asked him not to hurt anyone she loves, Also I don’t want to see her character as good as it always has been, die a murderer. I am hoping Stephano isn’t dead.

Lexie has always been portrayed as a soft-hearted, forgiving person. Dare I say Christian? Knowing she was about to leave this earth, Lexie would not deliberately commit the sin of murder. I’m with Agent Harmon or possibly Ian. Bringing on such a “big gun” with lots of other soap history apparently didn’t work. I never watched General Hospital so can’t say what kind of actor he was over there, but IMO on Days the Ian character was too stiff and not credible. I’m sure he had to read the lines he was given, it’s just his storyline was also too… Read more »

I agree with you neenee I haven’t watched days for long but from everything I have seen with Lexi she is not going to kill her father, it’s not in her to do something like that. I hope he isn’t dead either and he is going away for a while but will show up in a few months, I guess they want us to rack our brains to figure out who did it. Ian is a dam good actor he was as you know on general hospital and he was also on all my children for a short time, He… Read more »

I agree about the CIA. Either somebody we don’t care about, like Ian, shot Stefano and the CIA saved him but faked his death, or the CIA was in on the fake death from the beginning. Either way, Stefano will be back to take revenge on those who wanted him dead, after Joe has a summer vacation. Maybe Stefano lied about EJ not being his son to protect him from danger. Hopefully, the DiMera family will be reunited.

I think someone else. Probably the least likely person, although I don’t know who that would be. Here’s a question: if all 8 of the main suspects touched the gun, why did the shooter wear gloves?

I think Ian was the one to shoot him OR perhaps Kayla.

I’m now thinking Ian since he’s leaving the show. It could also be Agent Harmon or Celeste since they are minor characters. It obviously isn’t one of the 8 on the suspect board…that would be way to obvious and I doubt if any of those characters are leaving.

Ya know what? I don’t really care. I hope Stefano isn’t dead and the nuwriters write so many of the wrongs on canvas.

I think it’s Ian… notice how he read Kate’s divorce papers? she didn’t even look.

Ian’s motive…

he has a stake in her estate… and did love her once… he’s fawning over Kate… “did you do it? I can’t help you if you did…”

which is nice.. cause now Kate can declare her love for Stefano… and wait for the DiMera’s.

I don’t believe that Will did it i do agree that I did it.

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.
