Days of our Lives icon, Deidre Hall (Marlena) along with the newest member to the DAYS family, Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (Stefan) chatted it up with TV Insider during the recent NBC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, and a short video has been posted.

In it, Deidre and Tyler talk about the show’s writing under head writer Ron Carlivati, just how big of a baddie is Stefan O. DiMera, and the importance of social media and engaging with the viewers of DAYS about episodes, scenes, etc.

Currently in story, Marlena is starting to figure out something is off with her hubby John (Drake Hogestyn), and Stefan clearly has the “hots” for Abigail (Marci Miller) his half-brother’s wife.  All in a day in the life of the residents of Salem, right?

Check out what Deidre and Tyler shared after the jump.  Then let us know what you hope happens on-screen for Marlena in story, and for Stefan in story, via the comment section below.

It was nice hearing the praises for Ron C. He so well deserves it for turning the show around and making it a must watch show. Tyler has fit so perfectly on the show. Just hope Vivian sticks around. And Marlena and John are front and center again with a story. The most improved soap this year!

outside of these two wonderful beings : TWO THINGS

1. even i’m believing that Eli is the biological father. even if.. he told mom Valerie that Lani is two months along.. therefore it can’t be his. do I think JJ would accept this child… absolutely. I love Lani.

2. I keep asking myself… : WHY am I so choked up about Steve ( Patch ) Johnson being poisoned ???? by John… or as @Celia has mentioned.. the Pawn.. which may make sense ??? HELP… i’m sobbing about this

Because we love their previous relationship as partners.

And, of course, we are choked up because we love the character of Patch so much–and love Kayla. And Stephen and Mary Beth care so very much about keeping the characters faithful for the audience. They don’t ever thumb their noses at their fan, either. Good on them!

“That’s Kayla Husband ” as i’m losing it. and yes… that decades true love that surfaces with… all the audience….

I watched Days for a couple months in the Fall when I was hanging out with my mom regularly in the afternoon (it’s her show) and was happily impressed. I don’t have the time now and it’s not my show (General Hospital is but is in the deep recesses of horrible) so I’m not going to make time for it but I do recommend that soap fans support it in general because it’s probably the best soap on TV right now (and I say that without knowing much about Y&R and B&B.) If Days becomes popular then the other soaps… Read more »

Hopefully he can keep it up…the best year on OLTL was its finale year and written by Ron!!!…i really dont think GH was his best work but he did have some good stuff once in awhile there…like OLTL Days is better suited for him!!!

I love Tyler from back in The Lying Games and GH. As far as the poster me said, about him playing the same character type. I like that type, strong, serious, mysterious, some bad, some good, and a lot sexy. What more could you ask for?

I’m not really enjoying Tyler’s acting. I don’t think it is very good and it surprises me that he won an Emmy.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
