Big returns are the order of the day when Roark Critchlow reprises his role as Dr. Mike Horton, a role he played from 1994-99 and in 2010.  In addition, Lamon Archey returns as Eli Grant and Victoria Grace brings her role of Wendy Shin from ‘Beyond Salem’ over to the mothership.

Some of the upcoming story highlights contained with the preview include: after Gabi (Camila Banus) kisses Stefan (Brandon Barash) in the DiMera crypt, we cut to Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) who confronts Dr. Rolf (Richard Wharton) after she realizes he pumped up Stefan’s feelings for Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), not Gabi, and Gabi is set to marry Li Shin (Remington Hoffman).

Meanwhile, could Chanel (Raven Bowens) be a ‘murderer’? And, how will it affect Paulina’s (Jackée Harry) run for governor?  Leo’s lawyer, Sloan (Jessica Michel), approaches Paulina who says, “You’re here about a scandal involving my daughter?”

Then Abigail (Marci Miller) makes a ‘ghostly’ visit to Chad (Billy Flynn) as it appears the person who killed her will finally be revealed.  Who will it be?

Alex (Rob Scott Wilson) and Stephanie (Abigail Klein) look like they may just hit the sheets, while Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) can’t fight their attraction to one another, but Jada (Elia Cantu) sees them together and later passes out in front of Rafe (Galen Gering).

Will Marlena (Deidre Hall), Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Kate (Lauren Koslow) survive Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) poison toxins? Looks like, Kayla makes a trip to heaven. … but will she return to the land of the living?

By the end of the preview, a major car crash will alter the lives of the residents of Salem forever, but who goes over the cliff?  On the road at night are: Jennifer (Cady McClain), who is crying behind the wheel and we know her pill addiction is back, Ava (Tamara Braun) who is behind the wheel, then there is EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), plus Susan (Stacy Haiduk) who is in a car lets out a scream!

DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati shared in a tweet:A profound thank you to all the fans who have watched #Days over the past 57 years. Today we say goodbye to our home on network TV, but the stories continue on Monday September 12th on  @peacockTV.  Check out a sneak peek at what’s to come!”

Let it be Kirsten in the car that falls off the cliff finally! Don’t bring her back until Eileen Davidson it ready for a short arc like Alison Sweeney does! She can take Orpheus the least scary villain ever in Soap history. Both are very overused. Pls don’t ‘kill ‘ ok Ava !
I hope Days can balance it’s over the top plots with more reality based stories!

Kristen wanted Stefan to remember and pursue Chloe. I’m confused why she’s mad. But, it is still Ron writing the show, so, who knows?
It’s always good when Mike Horton is around. It’s been way too long! Wonder what he’ll be up to and who is his love interest?
Jada passes out……I’m sure she’s pregnant. LOL
The preview has me excited for the Fall!

I was wondering the same thing i.e Kristen upset about Stefan and Chloe. Isn’t that what she ordered him to do? Haven’t seen Mike Horton for years, and just read that 16 actors played the part, so don’t know which one I saw last.

Can’t Wait. Glad to see Mike Horton (Roark) back. Get Sarah back to the hospital also. Need the Hortons back on staff. Would love to see Kyle Lowder back for awhile too. Have a Sarah/Zander/Rex triangle. Love Rafe, but Nicole and Eric belong back together. Greg Vaughan and Ari Zucker has great chemistry. Will Peter Reckell be back as Bo and Kayla will see him? Hope so. Gabi needs to be with Stefan. Great stuff coming up!

I am so excited to see Mike Horton is returning to Salem! And Eli and the twins are back, though probably just for the holidays. Be great if they’d stay. Loonnng over due! I hope it’s just a sign of other Hortons returning. Never have and never will care about any story involving Dr. Rolf. They’re just too far out there. Can’t imagine DAYS without Kate, Marlena or Kayla. Kayla’s trip to Heaven should only last a few shows, if that. Always like seeing who they meet there, though. As for that car crash…It better not be Jennifer in this… Read more »

DAYS Billy Flynn Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Let’s just start this by saying if you missed last Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives on Peacock, you missed beautifully touching and effective performances by both Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera) and Marci Miller (ex-Abigail).

Leading up to it, Chad had a gut-wrenching week.  He figured out that Clyde (James Read) was the culprit that murdered his wife and later confronted him.  That led to key scenes where Chad confronts Clyde at Abigail’s gravesite and wants to hear all the gory details of how Clyde stabbed his wife, and then learned how the criminal covered his tracks, went after Sonny (Zach Tinker) and stabbed him, and framed Leo (Greg Rikaart) for the crimes.

Throughout the reveal, Billy Flynn played all of Chad’s pain and horror, while holding a gun at Clyde baiting him on – problem was Clyde is so despicable he had no problem telling Chad the grisly truth.  During a struggle for the gun with Chad, it is EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) who saves the day and shoots Clyde.  The two brothers bond over their shared disdain for Clyde.

Later at the Salem PD, EJ apologizes to Chad for bringing Clyde into their lives and for what happened to Abigail.  Chad takes it in but does not explode, rather appreciates his brother for saving his life.

However, the emotional rollercoaster that Chad went through, and the audience, in the expert hands of Flynn, was nothing compared to the heartbreaking scenes where Abigail visits Chad at her gravesite, now that he solved the murder mystery.

Abigail is proud that Chad found her killer and tells him that she wants him to love again and that it’s OK to move on.  She knows he will always love her, and she will always love him.  Then, when Abigail asks Chad to tell her what traits their children, Thomas and Charlotte, possess that remind him of Abigail, it was very tender and not overplayed.  When it was time for their final goodbyes, both Flynn and Miller reminded us all why #Chabby was one of the best duos in DAYS history.

In the end, it was Billy Flynn who carried the ball all the way to the end zone and scored a touchdown in the conclusion of Chad and Abigail’s love story.  It is always a nice to see when DAYS decides to write for and feature material which plays to Flynn’s strengths, and this did.

So, for all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Billy Flynn’s work as the Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of the Chad and Abigail goodbye scenes at her gravesite? What did you think of Billy’s performance and the reveal that Clyde Weston was Abigail’s murderer? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.  But first, check out our latest conversation with Billy, and his DAYS co-stars Greg Rikaart and Mary Beth Evans now on the Michael Fairman Channel below, where Billy discusses taping the pivotal scenes and more.

DAYS Billy Flynn, Greg Rikaart & Mary Beth Evans Talk On: Abigail’s Murderer Revealed, Orpheus’ Poisonous Plot & the Move to Peacock

September had been a pivotal month for Days of our Lives.  After nearly 57-years on broadcast television, the long-running soap opera shifted from NBC to exclusively streaming on Peacock.  While fans have been adjusting and wrapping their heads around the change, the stories of the characters you love to love, or love to hate, are continuing to play out in Salem.

This week, after months of a whodunit and who is to blame for the death of Chad’s wife, Abigail DiMera, DAYS fans finally learned that the actual killer was none other than Clyde Weston (James Read).  Meanwhile, Kayla has taken ill along with Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), all a part of Orpheus’ (George DelHoyo) longstanding feud with the women and the men in their lives.

Now on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, DAYS stars: Billy Flynn (Chad), Greg Rikaart (Leo) and Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) discuss their latest storylines, plus their thoughts on the soaps move on Peacock and its future.

As viewers witnessed on recent episodes, Chad figured out that it was Clyde who murdered Abigail, and went after him with a gun. Chad decided he wanted to hear the entire sordid story of how Clyde killed her.  This led to the showdown scenes at Abigail’s gravesite which included a visit by EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), who saved his brother from Clyde. During this interview, Billy weighs-in on taping the climatic scenes, what it was like to blame multiple characters for months for Abigail’s death, plus what the future holds in store for Chad as he moves on with his life post-Chabby.

Greg Rikaart shares his thoughts on if he ever thought Leo would turn out to be Abigail’s murderer since Leo had a revenge plot against those who wronged him. Rikaart also weighs-in on the story where Leo had a relationship with Craig Wesley, his enduring on-screen relationship with Emily O’Brien (Gwen, ex-Jana, Y&R) , plus working with Billy in the limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem, where Chad goes in drag as “Belinda Chinashop” and more.

Mary Beth talks on Kayla’s latest plight; that  being kidnapped by Orpheus along with Marlena and Kate, the good doctor has become very sick while trying to maintain order at University Hospital.  Evans also shares her thoughts on the arrival of Abigail Klein as her on-screen daughter Stephanie, the departure of Marci Miller as Abigail, and more.

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.
