Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it Daytime Emmy winner Vincent Irizarry, who made his highly-anticipated on-screen debut as Deimos, the brother of Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston)!

In his first scenes, Victor armed with a gun confronts his brother who has gotten inside the Kiriakis mansion.  As the dialog plays out, viewers learn that Deimos has been in prison for years, and that he somehow managed to work a deal for his freedom.  Clearly, Victor is rattled to see his younger brother again, who he wished would have remained locked up in the slammer.

When Victor questions Deimos as to what he wants, and why he came to see him in Salem, Deimos reveals he needs a job.  There is also clearly some underlying blackmail, or not yet revealed secret between the brothers from their past that is also at play here.

When Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier) happens upon the scene, he acts stunned to learn that Victor has a brother.   Deimos leaves the mansion with Victor never hoping to see him again.   Meanwhile, Caroline (Peggy Mcay) tells Justin (Wally Kurth) she has had visions of something terrible happening to Victor.  She also thinks it will be related to a man named “Damian”.

At the end of the episode, DAYS fan witnessed a huge double-cross as Phillip and Deimos met up at the park bench.   Clearly, they are working together!  It looks like they just might have a major plot to bring down Victor, once and for all.

So, what were your first impressions of the new bad guy in town, Deimos?  Glad to see Vincent Irizarry finally make his DAYS debut? What do you think Phillip and Deimos’ plan will be? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I loved it!!! It was like me having ice cream on Sunday…it was a great episode and great debut

He seemed more like a Dimera or a GH Cassidine…i see him as the future anti-hero Victor type once JA leaves as Victor one day…i see him getting into fights with Brady and Philip…i see him paired with Nicole.

Great idea about him with Nicole. I have been worried to death about her, ha. I thought maybe she would get with Finn but that might be too close to Daniel. It was creepy when Brady dreamed about her the other day, huh? And she & Eric can never go back. This guy would be great. I think he’s a good addition.

What an incredible addition to the cast. He is a first rate actor – always enjoyable to watch. Looking forward to the development of this character.

Vincent welcome back to Daytime, I watched Days yesterday. Vincent is a wonderful actor, and looks terrific for 56 years old. still sexy as ever. The man never ages.

this is going to be another shnooze fest……first off, Victor has been on for 100 years and now all of a sudden he has a way younger brother that’s been in jail….Phillip is sooo boring and him and Belle have no chemistry whatsoever….the one good thing about the show was Ben, the serial killer and he’s gone….ever since, Days has fallen flat….maybe they can bring back Ben with a storyline from the series Making a Murderer and he can be falsely accused on DNA and get off, then go on another killing spree and wipe out the teens that cannot act, with the exception of Joey Johnson, and maybe take out all these faux Kiriakiases…..and don’t get me started on the whole Hope debacle storyline….poor Kristian Alfonso……John’s parentage…who cares? Eve being let go, HUGE mistake…..only good thing so far was Ava knocking the hell out of Saint Kayla with the candlestick, in the library..oh wait, that’s the game CLUE….hahaha…really wish TPTB would listen to viewers and update the sets and update the filming schedules and only film three weeks to six weeks out…..and stop it already with all the DEATHS AND DEPRESSING Stoylines…….thanks for reading…

But Scott, how do you really feel? I sense you’re holding back. LOL.

DROOL continues to saddle good and great actors with No Win storylines. Regardless of whether you liked Melissa Archer or not, no one could animate that stupid elephant storyline. Kassie/Eve was brought on to give Jennifer a rival. That had zero reason to tune in. Hope is stuck with a dismal storyline. And as if the last twenty years of Who Is John Black wasn’t riveting enough, we’re going through it one more time.

I see the revolving Sean Brady casting continues. (Spin the wheel, Beemers turn!)

VI is a remarkable actor. I hope they don’t mess this up. I was so excited to see him paired with JP. (Sadly, they immediately pivoted to the Belle Sean Philip triangle. Again. Like John Black parentage… been there, done that.)

Please, Soap Gawd, don’t let them mess up VI with another elephant storyline.

Hi, Scott.
Why do you find the great age difference between siblings so far fetched? Look at Hugh Hefnerer. There is half a century of years separating his first and last child. Later.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

What about the age difference between Andre and Chad…no one brought that up?

@jimh. That’s right, Jimmy! Duh….didn’t see what is right in front of my nose. Lol.

With exception to letting Kassie go, I agree with everything else. Hope they dont pair Vincent with Nicole; already tired of her telling and crying. Really, there are more emotions! Never liked Nicole. Everything else you say is accurate!

SZima

Why are you wasting your time watching this show?

Scott H
Scott H

I don’t feel I’m wasting my time, just disappointed right now with the way the stories are being told. I grew up with Grandma H and her donuts….Dr. Tom, the Horton’s hanging of the Xmas balls…..it’s like a tradition and they are part of my family. Just think the show needs to relax on the killings and departures and stop bringing in new characters when you haven’t fleshed out the ones that were introduced a year ago……where’s Paul’s “boyfriend”…is he not gay anymore? Why has he not called to check on Sonny…why did Bo die and be buried in practically one episode, but Daniel “died” and has been mourned over for weeks now….Bo was here for 30 years…..can Nicole not be on here own for a month???? Maybe her and Chole will become lesbian lovers/mothers and raise Parker….course, i’m sure with that statement i’ve probably offended someone somehwere…hahaha….and please, NBC, just develop a 30 minute show drama-wise, that’s doesnt include a panel sitting around discussing nothing…. Bold and Beautiful seems to do well why not another 30 minute show??.

Great start. Would love him paired with Nicole. Imagine what naughtiness they would create!

Nicole deserves a new love interest and he would be great for her!

Bil Thompson

He was great as Dr. David Hayward on ALL MY CHILDREN, the show that should have never gotten the axe and deserved better than an ill fated attempt as an On-line presentation.
At any rate, yes, will be glad to see him as a cast member of the classic DAYS OF OUR LIVES and sparring with Jon Aniston.

Vincent Irizzary is one of those actors who immediately steals the screen. You can’t take your eyes off of him because he’s so interesting and has such a strong presence. He’s a great addition to the cast, and the backstory between Victor and Deimos looks like it’s going to be great. I’m very excited to see how this plays out.

I just hope Deimos will stick around for a while and not be killed off or written out at the end of this story. Vincent definitely has the power to be a leading man on the show, especially if John Aniston is retiring soon. An advantage he has is that Deimos is a Kiriakis, meaning that he already has ties to one of the show’s core families. Unlike previous villains like Clyde Weston and Ian McAllister, Deimos will hopefully have more of an impact and stick around for years to come.

One thing that amused me though, is that John Aniston and Vincent Irizzary are 25 years apart in age, and are brothers. To me, it seemed like Deimos could be Victor’s son! Deimos certainly looks closer in age to Philip than he does Victor.

Speaking of Philip, I’m not sure that I like him being involved in whatever plan Deimos has for Victor. If this turns Philip into a villain, it won’t work. I hope they don’t trash the character of Philip for the sake of this story.

DITTO.. I agree with everything you said…. Days needs a younger villian… So many of the older verterans on the show are 60s-80s year olds.. Great actors, but Days has not done a good job in the past getting younger villians.. Now we know that Ava will be gone.. now that she has kidnapped Kayla… great writing and Days has been rockin it!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Andre and Chad are brothers too and like forty years apart in age.

PLEASE ! PLEASE ! PLEASE !

stop ; with all the responses; her should be paired with Nicole !!!! really?

inasmuch as I like Arianna Zucker ! I now consider her to be ole days… and yes, I’ve posted that she’s had a rebirth of sorts… with Daniel and Eric gone…

but really ??? ready to latch her on to… the best male lead in daytime

I hope not

meh !!!!! perhaps… if they must…. let him have his fling ! hopefully… as was posted… Nicole will be pregnant with Daniel baby… so that lets us all off the hook

I am clearly waiting for Alla Korot… as Janet to ignite with Deimos Kiriakis

DAYS ! hire Kassie DePaiva

Vincent Irizarry needs a top draw high tiered actress

Nicole is so passe… and yes I want more for her

su0000
su0000

ahha!

Days gets ”Vincent Irizarry” and GH gets Genie Frances, sigh ..
WTG DOOL !! (Lucky for Days!!!

Ahh, Vincent! How I have missed you, you gorgeous man, you!! You bring the devil with you wherever you go. I am breathlessly anticipating anything this profoundly and infinitely perfect thespian brings to Salem.
Food for thought….and this is directed to 4ever: could Phillip really be Deimos’ son? They are obviously working together to overrun Titan Industries toward a takeover….so, why would Phillip go against his own father. I never realized he was a baddie. Awwww. I feel so badly for Victor. I love his Teddy Bear look!!
I love John Paul, too…as all of my OLTL cast, but, I must confess, I am not digesting him in this role.

Philip was created in a petri dish. Victor and Kate’s plan was for Kate to carry their child, but Vivian had other plans and became pregnant with Philip…You never know what could have transpired in the lab! I wonder how many cc’s were in the petri dish, CeeCee?! lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

Tee-hee! You are such a wicked dood, 4ever….I love it…so clever.
I didn’t know the circumstances surrounding Phillip’s conception and birth. Thanks. And, thank you for making me chuckle. Later.

Patrick

“…You bring the devil with you wherever you go. ”

classic line… perfect for Vincent Irizarry

here’s DAYS new Villain… perhaps he can align with Andre…

I hope he’s on for the long haul…. and it’s JPL that takes the fall

too funny about @4ever’ Phillip… I had forgotten that petri dish

ie: I have hope that Deimos son is Xander… talk about sophistication and upping the ante on class acts…. major talents…. male leads big time

Mo

Xander is too old to be Deimos’ son. Plus, Xander is in prison. I do think it was a mistake getting rid of Xander.

Harry

What Cee Cee said.
Vincent is an amazing actor who cannot bore you even when he eats oatmeal.
I just don’t have the time to watch Days but would re consider giving up either GH or Y&R and replace the 2 aforementioned with Days if the 2 aforementioned continue to disappoint me.
Vincent is worth it–he’s positively golden.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, Patrick,
….Glad you liked my line…lol…thanks!!
It is possible for Xander to be Deimos’ son. I man is able to reproduce at 18 years of age. So, it is plausible.
There’s a storyline right there. Perhaps Deimos impregnated a very young girl snd abandoned her….Xander’s mother. Would not put it past Deimos. Like father like son. Xander could definitely be brought back…..wow…what a juicy story that would make!

Mo

Vivian went to the same fertility place as Kate and Victor, pretending she was going to have a baby with Ivan, but had Victor and Kate’s embryo implanted in her. Good times.

CeeCee

Thanks, Mo.

After only seeing Vincent as Lujack & Nick Henry on GL, (both characters absolutely LOVED!) was a bit disconcerting to see him being “the bad guy”. But, he certainly has charisma galore, definitely the acting chops, so looking forward to what comes next.
Just what did Victor do to frame Deimos into getting life in prison. What did Deimos do to get him out after 30 years. And while Deimos was said to me 20 at the time he bedded Victor’s fiancee’, just how hold was Victor then? 40? 30? 35?
I mean, Caroline has said she was in high school with victor & shawn, until Victor went to Greece. So she married Shawn. Victor is now telling Maggie that after Helena died, Deimos in prison, he came to America. and yet….hmmm, when was it Victor had the affair with Isabella Toscano’s mother…in Italy??
And then…….if Deimos was 20, and it was 30 years ago, he is 50 now. So….hmmm, that seems a bit younger than Bo! When was the affair with Caroline? LOL

KateA

Absolutely wonderful. I am really liking Days! I am hooked! Vincent just captures your attention. I hope he gets plenty of screen time. Michael Knight needs more screen time on Y&R!

THIS MAN IS GREAT NO MATTER WHAT SHOW HE IS ON OR WHAT PART HE PLAYS…WILL HAVE TO TUNE IN NOW…..

I liked Vincent on AMC so I hope he does a good job on DAYS. One question I’ve always had it why does DAYS film 6 months in advance and has this always been the caae.

Rj

Even though I did not see all of his scenes, he is a talented actor, and could be an interesting addition to the show. Like what others say about pairing Nicole with him. Two strong actors could make for a dynamic presence. Like that Days is trying to shake it up to find good chemistry between actors, and better storylines.

blake

I really liked Vincent Irizarry on Guiding Light when he was Lujack and the long-lost twin brother, Nick. Nick and Mindy (Kimberly Simms’ version) were HOT!!!!

Patrick
Patrick

Phillip is working for … ??? Deimos Kiriakis !

LOL

hey… as long as Deimos doesn’t take the fall if Salem finds this out!

JPL’ Phillip is not that endearing of a character any way

Caroline sure read Justin the riot act, didn’t she tho? at least she’s talking about them and not sweeping them under the rug

Patrick
Patrick

gawd! on Monday’s ep: Kassie DePaiva did more in those two scenes… then all of DAYS cast ever

1. when she asked Justin … where … if at all … was their relationship going
2. when she pulled out that picture coloring from Paige as a child

it just smarts… and is a painful reminder how huge a mistake Ken Corday is responsible

a reminder that February 2, 2016 is fast approaching

whatever will Rafe, Eduardo, Justin, and now Deimos do with their lives?

Val
Val

I think VI has another winning character in Deimos! We left him alone today brooding into his coffee, so I wonder if he’ll meet a like-troubled woman the next time we see him?

James R. Poissant
James R. Poissant

He seems like he might be a little slimy which is why I think it is going to be a lot of fun watching Vincent in this role. Hopefully we’ll see some bad to him as well as some good so he can be redeemed at times but not all the way because we all love a baddie on our soaps.

Mo
Mo

I was interested until I realized it’s all about that boring stupid serum.

Don’t like that Philip is working against his father.

Paul

A jet could fly through the holes in the backstory created for Deimos. However, ill go along with it because the end result is a good actor joining the cast. Let’s hope the writers don’t waste him as they have with other ABC refugees.

Sward

Hmmm. Did Deimos kidnap Bo? Did Stefano get murdered for the wrong reason? By the way, I’m not sure we’ve seen the last of Stefano — even if it’s his ghost or spirit haunting someone.

I think DOOL has done a good job of recovering from losing several key players, Billy Flynn and Vincent are great.

I can’t wait for Judi Evans (Adrienne) to walk in and make eye contact with Vincent Irizarry! That perfect soap opera chemistry from the good ole days! (Sad, I know, she’s no longer on contract) .

LujackLvr

I have watched Vincent Irizarry for 32 [it will be 33 in November] years & I have followed his career, from GUIDING LIGHT to MARIE [where he played Sissy Spacek’s abusive lout of a husband] to HEARTBREAK RIDGE with Clint Eastwood & Mario Van Peebles to SANTA BARBARA and back to GUIDING LIGHT [where Vincent had played My Beloved Brandon “Lujack” Luvoneczek from Nov 1983 to December 2, 1985, the day that Lujack died on-screen due to pervasive internal bleeding; it was 5 years/7 months/3 days later, Vincent returned to GUIDING LIGHT to portray Lujack’s as-yet-unknown twin brother, ace-reporter-with-a-ponytail, Nick McHenry, who arrived in Springfield on July 5, 1991 and departed [very much alive, thank God] with his HIV-afflicted wife, Susan, in 1996. Vincent then guested on ALL MY CHILDREN in Summer 1997 before becoming a contract player in November 1997, portraying cardiologist Dr. David Hayward until AMC’s cancellation in 2011 [having been fired by the AMC execs for two years during his 9-year David Hayward run, Vincent joined YOUNG & RESTLESS for two years as David Chow, a mystery man whose back story was never explored during the two years Mr. Chow was in Genoa City] on ABC-TV. Vincent joined Prospect Park Productions when ALL MY CHILDREN, cancelled by ABC in 2009, moved to the Internet, lasting from 2011 to 2013 [correct me if I’m wrong] & he is now on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Deimos Kiriakis, the younger brother of Victor Kiriakis. Vincent is as beautiful as ever & I can’t wait to see if Deimos & Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis [played by Judi Evans, who played GUIDING LIGHT’s Beth Raines, who was Lujack’s beloved girlfriend, for 18 of the 25 months Vincent captivated Springfield during his Emmy-nominated Lujack tenure] will have scenes together. Perhaps Vincent will win another Best Supporting Actor Emmy [he finally won an Emmy in 2009 while portraying AMC’s David Hayward–although he won the Emmy of My Heart long ago…

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
