Courtesy/NBC

As the three villains: Orpheus (George DelHoyo), Xander (Paul Telfer) and Clyde (James Read) rip through the town of Salem and cause havoc for all of their enemies, it is young Theo (Kyler Pettis), who is about to take them on!

It all goes down after a disraught Theo is reeling from his father Abe Carver (James Reynolds) being shot, and his best friend, Joey (James Lastovic) being kidnapped.  So Theo armed with a gun is put in harm’s way as he is tries to avenge his loved one’s peril, but he may just find himself in life-threatening peril instead!

Meanwhile, it’s the showdown between decade old rivals, Orpheus and John (Drake Hogestyn)! What will happen when these two face-off in the park?

Watch this week’s promo from Days of our Lives after the jump. Then let us know, who you think will get shot? And what you think of the story twist that has Theo in hero-mode! Comment below.

Please don’t speak for me, damien. I care. We all have opinions. So, do you wish Theo to be shot and killed because he’s black or because he’s autistic?

My opinion is the actor is doing a fine job as Theo. That’s not bad acting, it’s a realistic portrayal of an autistic teen on the higher end of the spectrum.

While watching Kyler, I was thinking how hard it must be to play someone with autism. I think he is doing a good job too.

I don’t necessarily love the teen stories and certainly don’t care for Vivian who plays Ciara. They have needed to recast that role for quite a while.

why would you assume i m referring to his condition or his skin colour?!… did i allude to any of that in my post or before you got all pissy and paranoid did you read the rest of my post about the younger set as a whole?! i dont judge anyone about the way they were born but it sounds like you re doing a fine job doing the judging… im simply airing my frustrations about the direction a show i truly love going down the drain …and if im speaking on any ones behalf its the almost million viewers… Read more »

The poor actress, she is in way over her head. TPTB should send the entire teen scene off-air. None of them seem to have the experience to carry such emotional storylines. They really should be seen and not heard, and not on every day. They are more filler-IMO. None of the storylines are interesting. Blind leading the blind-in writing, it seems.

Ted Martin

She is fine in short scenes telling her mom things like “I am worried about Theo” but her acting range isn’t strong enough to hold her own storyline together. For the time being, they should relegate the character to a small supporting role around her mom and relatives. I do not wish to be unkind, so I will say that the young actress who currently portrays Ciarra just simply needs more seasoning.

This story is embarrassingly bad even for Days which has been scraping the bottom of the creative barrel for 18 months now. Dena is partial to Theo character because of her personal circumstances, but the actor, along with those playing Joey, Claire and Ciara are so poor that it makes a bad story so much worse. And I feel for these young folks who are so miscast and in over their heads, and yes, even the actress who plays Claire is super green and only stands out as acceptable because she’s placed with non-actors in the other teen roles. But… Read more »

Agreed, Tony, albeit I love Theo. He stands out as the flower amongst the weeds. He is an exceptional young actor with an unfortunate role. I can’t even follow these storylines, any longer. Sad!!!! I wish TPTB would make up their minds about Aiden. On one hand, he was killed and buried. Then, it turns out it was actually a look-alike imposter who was the dead bad guy, thanks to Andre?? The real Aiden had been held prisoner…..so, he comes back with good intentions, or so it seemed. But, lo and behold, as soon as Hope ( who belongs in… Read more »

Celia, my dear…on today’s DOOL episode, the moment that Rafe and Hope (together) appeared on my TV screen, I IMMEDIATELY pressed the Mute button on my remote control. Yep. Hey…I am all for May/December romances, but, Rafe/Hope (for me) are a TOTAL SNOOZE-FEST!!!!! And don’t get me started on Aiden #1/Aiden #2…LOL!!!!! Make. It. Stop.

Have a good night, my friend.

I do agree but i still feel the escapees picked up a bit…instead of aging the children which meant more story.which is wasted on these poorly acting teen set..Days should had concentrated more on the adults and young set it already had like JJ, Paige, Bev and Rory who were ten times more interesting and can act…and had Theo been 13 or 14 avenging his father’s shooting would had been controversial but more riveting and interesting!!!

I love the storyline and Theo is a teen standout as is Claire. Joey has made great strides too. Ciara should be recast.

Celia
Guest

Claire is growing on me. Ciara should just not open her mouth, period. Joey isn’t doing it for me either, 4ever, my friend of friends. LOL.
But, we agree on Theo. He is the only sorased teen I really, really love…have since day one. He’s good looking, and such a talent.

I have to agree with you 4everDays about two of the actors. The young man playing Theo and the young woman playing Claire are doing good work. Both of them are alert and present in their scenes and playing their characters. I really enjoy both of them. The rest of the teens can go at anytime.

It would be so nice if They got rid of that whole younger set.. This “young” storyline sucks. The girl who plays Ciara is the worst actress on the show. Unbearable to watch.

Oh no. Bad plot twist in a frustrating storyline. Also if days allows hope to get back with Aidan to stay out of jail, this show will be yoadt

Wow, I can’t believe the nasty comments. I just hope the actors aren’t reading this. I know Damien, Mo, Jimh, and Tony that all of you are so perfect. It must be so hard to be all of you….

We are here to comment, Mark. Good or bad….
Perfection has nothing to do with it. Have you even taken an English Lit class? The point is ……constructive criticism. I do not ignore the elephant in the room.
I remember you….I remember the personal remarks to me. So, do not call the kettle black. Not fair.

I think you have the wrong Mark. I very rarely comment on this site and I have never commented on anything you have said. On that note I just feel there is always so much negativity. The younger actors are trying. Remember Sami was green in the beginning too. BTW, yes I have taken an English Literature class. LOL

@Mark. Hi, Mark, If I have mistaken you for another Mark, I do, wholeheartedly apologize. Perhaps it was the Mark who spells his name with a diminuative “m”. This was back in April, where his comments had been very scathing. So, please accept my sincere regrets. A very inane April Fool’s kind of joke? Yet, very insulting. As far as the English class bit, I was trying to be facetious. But, sadly, my stupid jokes/sarcasm never take root. LOL. Forgive me? I forgot to insert the usual ‘ LOL’. Double LOL. Nevertheless, I still think, we have the right to… Read more »

I do not think this is dark… I LIKE ALL 3 of the guys acting skill

Kyler Pettis as Theo Lexie’ son…. dang it of the 4 SORAS teens… Kyler is the more comfortable one… in front of the camera and in all his relationships… even if he is at times shy…. which Kyler pulls off endearingly… gawd… he’s Abe and Lexie son it’s a sweet thing he’s got going with Claire when the lights went out in Salem… and Theo was with Arianna and Thomas Theo got caught up in the “excitement” and his REEL surprised me… “no no, Theo” Keep it together which was a surprising turn for me… I so wanted Lexie spirit… Read more »

DAYS tries to be exciting but it’s not. It’s campy, wimpy in it’s story telling and featuring the worst part of the cast. The teen actors are AWFUL. How much do people have to say it before the powers that be listen. The new head writing team is no different than the last. The stories are mired in mediocrity. Three criminals holding a whole town hostage with each of them pretending to be in disguise. They aren’t in disguise. The kindergarten class at Salem Academy could identify them. Here is what needs to happen: Marlena is possessed once again and… Read more »

HEY if they would follow these suggestions I would gladly not complain anymore. But I cannot take Ciarra’s incessant whining nor Claire groaning about her singing career even though her voice sounds like air escaping from a party balloon. I think they need a Transgender character on the show and her name could be Kate Lynn Jenkins but she used to be a famous athlete. It turns out that she (when he was a he) was involved with Paul (the once famous pro ball player) and when Sonny finds out about this, he goes crazy and tries to commit suicide… Read more »

Mateo…where Caroline is concerned, I’ll put it like this: If Caroline were to be killed off, oh, say, ‘tomorrow’ (or whenever), it wouldn’t exactly sadden me. Sorry, but, to me, NOTHING about Caroline makes sense ANYMORE!!!!! NONE!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Caroline’s time IS UP!!!!!

Just saying……….

Ciara Alice Brady. Who’s played Ciara Alice Brady over the years? Vivian Jovanni (October 30, 2015 – present) Lauren Boles (2008 – September 30, 2015) Dakoda and Danica Hobbs (2007 – 2008) It’s pretty clear and obvious…. the recast SORAS Teen… played by Vivian Jovanni has to go. unfortunately she’s been given a year to parlay something …. ANY thing Ryan Quan and Dena Higley… should right the wrong.. and simply bring back Lauren Boles this would bring Kristian Alfonso ; ALIVE RETURN the SORAS Chase… for his father Aiden Wallah two families that belong together forget the rape….

Do you mean to tell me the poor, unfortunate young woman who is trying, unsuccessfully, to play Ciara has been doing so for year????????????? Clearly, TPTB at Days are just as asleep as she is when she’s doing her scenes. We know they have no respect for their audience. They also have no respect for their show.

Who’s niece IS this actress anyway? The producer’s? I think they just need to cut her scenes way down, just have her telling Hope that she wants to go up to her room and study for a while, or scenes like that. Give her very little screen time. She is fine in quick supportive scenes but really she can’t be the center of attention, the show is bad enough as it is.

I know I have expressed my opinion before, but this ‘villain’ storyline bringing down the town is just not what I want to watch on Days. The actors are all trying and doing the best they can with the material, so no criticism of them just not the type of storyline I want to see on Days. Just expressing my opinion and vote for the record. It seems I am not a lone in this, but if others like it, and ratings are up, I can respect that. I suppose even though it is actually sad, it could be viewed… Read more »

Just want to add to my last comment. I like Theo, and glad that he will be a hero, but just not into this type of storyline or any shooting, violence, etc. on soaps or TV for that matter. Would be glad and love to have seen Theo as a hero in another capacity.

4 ever Days, MO, Celia , and everyone who thinks Theo’s character is doing a wonderful job, I totally agree. He is the best of the teens on the show. I love this young man; perhaps, the show can find some other teens to support Theo’s great work.

I’ll admit it. I don’t watch Days. However I note that it has it’s loyal viewers commenting on MF. So I have been trying to see the appeal. But when I see a header to this page about guns and killing, or suicides in the past, it’s not my idea of another soap I would add for my “escape” in the afternoon. Already too much crime and killing on GH, and the real world news.

DAYS Billy Flynn, Greg Rikaart & Mary Beth Evans Talk On: Abigail’s Murderer Revealed, Orpheus’ Poisonous Plot & the Move to Peacock

September had been a pivotal month for Days of our Lives.  After nearly 57-years on broadcast television, the long-running soap opera shifted from NBC to exclusively streaming on Peacock.  While fans have been adjusting and wrapping their heads around the change, the stories of the characters you love to love, or love to hate, are continuing to play out in Salem.

This week, after months of a whodunit and who is to blame for the death of Chad’s wife, Abigail DiMera, DAYS fans finally learned that the actual killer was none other than Clyde Weston (James Read).  Meanwhile, Kayla has taken ill along with Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), all a part of Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) longstanding feud with the women and the men in their lives.

Now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Greg Rikaart (Leo) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) discuss their latest storylines, plus their thoughts on the soaps move on Peacock and its future.

As viewers witnessed on recent episodes, Chad figured out that it was Clyde who murdered Abigail, and went after him with a gun. Chad decided he wanted to hear the entire sordid story of how Clyde killed her.  This led to the showdown scenes at Abigail’s gravesite which included a visit by EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), who saved his brother from Clyde. During this interview, Billy weighs-in on taping the climatic scenes, what it was like to blame multiple characters for months for Abigail’s death, plus what the future holds in store for Chad as he moves on with his life post-Chabby.

Photo: JPI

Greg Rikaart shares his thoughts on if he ever thought Leo would turn out to be Abigail’s murderer since Leo had a revenge plot against those who wronged him. Rikaart also weighs-in on the story where Leo had a relationship with Craig Wesley, his enduring on-screen relationship with Emily O’Brien (Gwen, ex-Jana, Y&R) , plus working with Billy in the limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, where Chad goes in drag as “Belinda Chinashop” and more.

Mary Beth talks on Kayla’s latest plight; that  being kidnapped by Orpheus along with Marlena and Kate, the good doctor has become very sick while trying to maintain order at University Hospital.  Evans also shares her thoughts on the arrival of Abigail Klein as her on-screen daughter Stephanie, the departure of Marci Miller as Abigail, and more.

Check out our full interview with Billy, Greg and Mary Beth below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more celebrity interviews, music videos, game shows and special event coverage.

Now let us know, what did you think of Clyde being revealed as Abigail’s true killer? What did you think of the confrontation scenes between Billy Flynn and James Read? What has been your favorite Leo moment since Greg came to DAYS?  Will Kayla figure out what Orpheus has done to her and others? Finally, are you enjoying DAYS on Peacock after its first few weeks of the series exclusively streaming? Share your thoughts in the comment section,

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

‘NBC News Daily’ Hits Rock Bottom In Ratings Premiere Week

While networks have seen a collective erosion over the years of the soap opera viewing audience, they are still the most loyal and fierce of any entertainment genre.

With NBC’s decision to take Days of our Lives off of the network after nearly 57 years, and replace it with another daytime news program, they would surely have a rocky road ahead of them to capture viewers in that time slot; especially now that DAYS was moved exclusively to NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.

Nothing was more proof positive of that, than the first week ratings and performance of NBC News Daily.

The news show which premiered on Monday, September 12th came in last for the ratings period of all daytime shows for the week.

According to SON: NBC News Daily averaged 935,000 viewers, was last among Total Viewers and last in the key demo ratings: Women 18-49 (tie) and Women 25-54.

In comparison to DAYS last week on NBC, and a year ago, NBC News Daily was down -744,000 and -762,000 viewers, respectively.

NBC News Daily features the latest national and international news, plus consumer, health, and personal finance segments and is hosted by Kate Snow, Aaron Gilchrist, Morgan Redford and Vicky Nguyen.

So, will ‘NBC News Daily’ find itself facing the same fate as ABC’s defunct ‘Revolution’, which replaced One Life to Live, and lasted only six months, or will the news program somehow turn a ratings corner? Does NBC really care one way or the other? Share your thoughts below.
