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!

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… Read more »

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!)… Read more »

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.

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!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

“…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

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

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
Guest
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!

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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!!!!

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

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?

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?

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.
