The time is upon us Days of our Lives fans!  This week, Alison Sweeney departs Salem in her role as Sami after over two decades of playing one of the most central roles in the history of the iconic soap opera.

NBC gave Alison, and her fans, a special send-off with this touching video package complete with retrospective clips.   In it, Alison shares that she has been a fan of Days of our Lives all of her life, and to find out she would be coming to the show to play the daughter of Deidre Hall (Marlena) was something she will never forget! And that she secretly hoped that she would play the villain on the show, which is something she definitely got to experience!

Alison also shares some of her favorite scenes including when Sami bitch-slapped Nicole (Arianne Zucker) after finding out about her duplicity with baby Sydney, and the more recent standalone episode where Sami finds out that EJ (James Scott) slept with Abigail, even though that turned out to be a nightmare of EJ’s!  And Alison talks about all of her leading men on DAYS, and how she was very lucky that each and every guy was wonderful to work with.  Later, in an emotional moment she talks about leaving the series and is finally saluted by some of her co-stars and some of her fans, as they wish Alison well as she moves forward with her life and her career!

Watch Alison Sweeney’s very personal farewell to DAYS video after the jump! Then share with us your favorite scenes of Alison’s time on the show, and who was your favorite all-time love interest for Sami?

It will seem strange without her but i wish AS well and i know she’ll make some future visits…very curious to see how the show performs without two of its powerhouse stars…i remember when Doug and Julie left and it took a little time to get used to but back then the show had other interesting characters and storylines…not so much this time mainly because of the boring Jordan storyline…with the exit of Ejami, the Jordan storyline shouldve been more front and center and holding viewers interest during major cast departures but its not and it may hurt the show… Read more »

Now that Chrishell Stause will be leaving DAYS, the boring and tedious storyline revolving Jordan and her many secrets will be quickly wrapped up. I watch DAYS mostly (if not only) for Eileen Davidson. I just love Kristen Dimera! I’ve never been a big fan of Ali Sweeny or EJami. I know they have many fans; but, we all have our favorites. I do think that the actress has done a great job leaving while paying respect to the character and all of the actors she has had major storylines with.

I’m going to miss this lady a lot. I wanted Sami to end up with Rafe in the end, so I’m sad that didn’t happen, but gosh…What great fun it’s been to watch Alison Sweeney work. All the best to her in whatever she decides to do next.

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.
