Tonight, Eric guest stars on the hit TNT series Rizzoli & Isles (9PMET/8CST) where he will play the role of as Brad Oskoff, an employee from a wealthy family with a dark secret.

Rizzoli & Isles follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), complete opposites and good friends who solve crimes and bust some of Boston’s most notorious criminals.

And this week on Days of our Lives, Brady won’t know what happens when his father, John Black (Drake Hogestyn)  life hangs in the balance due to what he believes is his fault, although the audience knows that Theresa (Jen Lilley) is pulling all the strings!

So happy to hear of the outside projects for Mr. Martsolf?  Are you like Brady’s current story on DAYS? Excited to see what unfolds with Kristen(Eileen Davidson) returns to Salem and how it affects Brady? Let us know!

I love Eric Martsolf; but, I do not love the pairing of Brady and Theresa. The Vegas scenes were beyond ridiculous and not believable in the slightest. I really can’t stand the character of Theresa. What redeeming qualities does the character have? I can’t wait until Kristen comes back to Salem. I hope she kidnaps Theresa and does away with her, no explanation needed. Or, will she kidnap Brady in hopes of helping him clean-up his act?

I like Theressa and wish they develop more of a back story for her to explain why she became a cold calculating schemer…so far its because of her absentee father Shane who was a spy and rarely around…i like to think her mother Kimberly, out of loneliness, cheated on Shane and it was with Theressa’s own fiance’ who later committed suicide after Kim refused to leave Shane for him…Theressa found out about the affair but kept it a secret and became a bitter coniving person because of it…good idea or not it would help explain why Theressa is the way she is and to allow us to feel a little sympathy for her!!! jmo

Hi,jimh. That’s a pretty plausible scenario. But, my mother said that , back in the day, Kimberly was a prostitute, so wouldn’t that fact be more feasible in explaining Theresa’s sociopathic behavior? Imagine growing up with that stigma.

Shane and Kimberly were reunited shortly after Mrs Horton’s funeral. I would write that while they were separated, Kimberly started hooking again…and one of her clients molested Theresa.

Hope Kristen returns with Bradys baby…or is it Erics(would make better drama if Erics and Marlena granny of Kristens child)…lol…cant wait to see if any confrotation scenes between Kristen and Theressa…as for John he’s already brain dead so cant blame Theressa for that…lol

Eric Maltsof. Yum! Cannot get enough. Handsome AND talented. So happy to see the nice guy does not finish last.

Yum, is right , Iakovos. Here is a perfectly good actor (and good looking)…wasting away and acting the fool. I wish the” gods” who rule DOOL would clean him up already. Kristin was a nut-job, but, at least, she truly loved him.
I actually like Theresa, and she’s closer in age than Kristin, then again, there would be no drama if everyone skipped happily through the fields. It would not be soapy.
So now, John will be in a coma…Theresa will get away with yet another crime and Brady will take the blame sitting in a jail cell, licking his wounds.

Had to reply here…yes Kim was a pro’ and that could be part of the reason for Theressa’s bad girl behavior if she found out about it plus maybe kids at school somehow found out and bullied her about it…plus id still like to add my scenerio to it to that you responded to above…also they should sober Brady up…with his drugs and drinking youd think he’d have liver problems or other health issues by now!!!

One time, Theresa was upset with her aunt Kayla when Kayla called her Jeanie. Theresa replied with “My name is Theresa, like the saint!”

Maybe hitting John over the head and letting Brady take the wrap is what will push Brady to clean up his act…Theresa could have been saintly without realizing it!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Forgot to mention: Eve was also a prostitute and Paige seemed to turn out fine…so i like to think Theressa either couldnt take Kims ‘nightly work’ or there is still more to her backstory as i suggested!!!

I’m as happy as I can be! Kristen returns next Friday!!!

John might think he is Roman and still married to Marlena?

I just love John. Please don’t let him die. All the good actors are leaving and its not going to be Days of our lives anymore..

John has become a useless character since his return…the writers seem to find it difficult to write for him unless he is confronting Brady…he use to be far more interesting…hopefully that will change…maybe because of his head injury John will have some dark moments and unexpected violent outburst shocking his family and friends but who’ll be supportive and try to help him once they realize his head injury is to blame!!!

What if John wakes up and thinks he’s still with Kristen from all those years ago?

I saw Eric on the show. I just think it’s time Eric as Brady get’s a new storyline. Eric was clean shaven, maybe that ‘s why you maybe didn’t see him.

I saw Eric on “Rizzoli & Isles” last night, Leah. He was on at the very end…not a big deal…you didn’t miss much. He played the bad guy…lol

Thanks Ann Marie, CeeCee!

Absolutely, jimh. You are right, of course. There is , in most cases, an underlying traumatic reason for a rebellious child who eventually may or may not turn criminally inclined. We cannot compare one person with the other, though. Yes, Paige turned out to be well-adjusted….but, she has a different personality, not to mention that Theresa is probably pre-disposed to act the psychopath. I think that what Theresa did was instinctual. We can visibly see she is highly affected by what she did. The question is; is she truly sorry or is she afraid of getting caught? In her defence, now that I had time to think about it, John did manhandle her. He pushed her, HARD!!. Her instincts dictated she defend herself…spur of the moment…no time to think. It is a difficult call to make. But, we both like Theresa…we want her redeemed…at least, I do.
@4ever …I love the way you think. I agree with your deduction. Perhaps John getting whacked upside his head was a “stroke” of luck. Time for Brady to step out of oblivion, and for Theresa to read up on St. Theresa; that will certainly make her drop to her knees, pounding her chest and murmuring , “mea culpa”, over and over again. Lol

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.
