Let us know.

I was watching Days when Crystal’s first started on the show and enjoyed Bo and Carly’s pairing back in the day. I am thrilled she has a chance to reprise the role and she is bringing a lot to Salem. As for Daniel and Carly’s tryst story….well they are tying her to a few characters already on the show, so that is a good sign she is going to stay. I can just go with the flow of the story. They would have to do a convoluted story to make this happen. Ok, it’s not a romantic match up…oh well.… Read more »

I think Daniel being the father is boring. No one really cares except perhaps Chloe and of course Melanie. If they turn this into a Dan/Carly/Chloe triangle, I will be so disgusted. It seems that’s all Days knows how to do nowadays are triangles. How trite. The only couple I’m enjoying right now is Bo and Carly and I’m sure they’ll mess that up soon enough in order to orchestrate a Bo/Hope reunion which is a complete snoozefest. The supercouple Days are over. Please let it end. Bo and Hope have nothing left. Watching them is like watching paint dry.… Read more »

What do I think? Surely there are twists and turns around the corner? You don’t waste the opportunity of gettings Crystal Chappell back in this role after 17 years opposite many of the actors who were around during the magic of Carly 1.0 on this large dose of ‘who cares’. Why would fans and more importantly who in Salem would care that Carly and Daniel had a child? Melanie’s father needs to be one of only two characters, Lawrence or Bo. Perhaps once Lawrence is revealed to be ‘undead’ (you know it’s coming), we will get a soapful and unsafe… Read more »

I totally agree. Daniel as the daddy was predictable and boring. snooze. He is not a major character and his being Melanie’s father will not have that big of an impact. I mean really can’t the writers come up with anything better? We at Team Delusional have come up with better story ideas than the Days writers have. Apparently the higher-ups didn’t let the writers know they needed to step up their game for someone as extra-ordinarily talented as the beautiful Crystal Chappell. Come on Days get creative. Give us a twist. Bo or Lawrence would be much more interesting.… Read more »

Could this reveal have been anymore anti-climactic OR predictable? Let me provide a little tip. Soap audiences are much smarter in general than writers tend to give credit. Daniel was hardly “unexpected” It was clear from Carly & Daniel’s first interaction, something of their past would be revealed down the line. I am still wishing for the real soapy twist, a Bo or Lawrence daddy reveal. Now THAT has story potential and riveting excitement that would pack dramatic punch, while changing the fabric of DAYS, forever!

Perhaps I could have been more concise last time. Daniel Daddy from left field is weak and safe.

I sure hope TPTB have further tricks up their sleeves.

Why again do I care that Daniel is Baby Daddy? Oh right…because Carly and Daniel have only managed to share a handful of screen time together since October of 2009. zzzzzz…If DAYS wanted to capitalize on Carly’s history in Salem, Baby Daddy should have been Bo or Lawrence…heck, I would have accepted Justin or Victor. At least with Victor, we’d understand why he hated Carly, the homewrecker.

Wow Lee, did you just say Victor as baby daddy? Ick!! LOL I thought about Justin too as Mel’s father. Either way, anyone is better than Daniel because like you said no one really cares. I know I don’t.

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?
