Which DAYS ‘Undead’ Return Have You Enjoyed the Most … Nick, Charlie or Deimos?

Photos: JPI/Peacock

This week in the spirit of Halloween, Days of our Lives has been airing some very devilish episodes, with at its epicenter, the MarDevil’s (Deidre Hall) plot to wreak havoc on the town of Salem by resurrecting some of its all-time bad boys!

MarDevil goes to each of the gravesites of Charlie Dale (Mike Manning), Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) and Deimos Kiriakis (Vincent Irizarry), and literally takes them out of the ground and gets each of them to go after the people that put killed them in the first place.

For Charlie that is Allie (Lindsay Arnold) and for good measure his mother Ava (Tamara Braun) and half-brother, Tripp (Lucas Adams), for Deimos that is Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker), and for Nick, well, he has it in for Gabi (Camila Banus).

Throughout the Monday through Wednesday episodes, viewers watched flashbacks of how each of the bad men were murdered, and how now they have risen to torture their foes.

Blake Berris, Mike Manning, and Vincent Irizarry all looked as those they were having quite the fun time playing the zombie-versions of their once Salem characters.

And as viewers saw, Gabi killed Nick, yet again, after finding Jake (Brandon Barash) buried, Tripp hit Charlie multiple times with a frying pan and cracked and his skull, and Nicole stabbed Deimos … again.  However, of course, no one else in Salem saw the zombies, making it difficult for the very much alive folks to get anyone to believe what just happened to them.

When the dust settled, it left Nicole and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting hot and heavy!

So did you enjoy seeing Blake, Mike, and Vincent again? What character’s undead return did you enjoy the most? Comment below.

I enjoyed Blake Berris as Nick and especially Mike Manning as Charlie! I really wish there was some way to bring Mike back to Days – a cousin or an identical twin? A complicated hero would be great. I miss him. He’s great on The Bay, for which he won his well deserved Emmy. He deserves an Emmy for his work as Mike from earlier this year: his reel ought to start with the rape scene, then a bit of his talk with Gwen in Horton Square, then move to his hands up at the doorway, a bit from his… Read more »

I should explain that kiss…. I totally did that to mess with Nick’s head.

Here’s why…. even though I’m walking around Salem in Marlena’s body, I’m still considered a “male” entity (even though I technically have no gender, as mortals understand them, which I pointed out at the time)

And Nick – you may remember – was a MAJOR homophobe. All the terrible things he did to his own cousin, Will.

So it was a little trick I played on him. Thanks for noticing!

What ? I had no idea… Mike Manning WON (emmy), and deservedly so… even if; it’s the Bay… no disrespect. of the three, yesterday… i kept thinking , about the presence, the realism, the feed off of; his characterization’ Mike Manning, should be brought back… at this point… especially to explore that much more scenes with Ava ????? COME ON @DAYS… where’s Ava and Tripp ??? Tamara Braun is MAGIC… and watching Nicole boobs with nothing past that ??? Nicole has run her course… PLEASE just end this dead flirtation w/RAFE. Jeezus, he looks like he’s just biding his time…… Read more »

I echo the views expressed by richard w griffin and Patrick, particularly the accolades bestowed on Mike Manning and Blake Berris. No offense to Vincent Irizzary or his character, but I missed most of his original storyline. (Not sure where I was. Perhaps Kristen moved me for a temporary stay on a deserted island.) But getting back to Berris and Manning, I enjoyed their original storylines, their acting, and their returns. Wish they could be back as regulars… Each has phenomenal presence. Nod to our beloved Satan: thanks for explaining that kiss! Sometimes a kiss, even if the kiss is… Read more »

I agree, Jamesj75, about Mike Manning. Even dead, he’s hot (no pun intended). I so hoped GH would pick him up. It’s sorely in need of some pulse-raising men. I’m sorry but bringing back Drew as a robotic fossil just doesn’t do it for me. And since GH can’t rid itself of Peter the Puke, adding Mr. Manning would be a real coup.

I agree with your assessments as well, Soaphound. GH would be smart to cast Mike Manning. I am sure that TPTB at DOOL realize their mistake in letting Manning slip through their hands. A zombie Charlie is better than no Charlie…

Problem with bringing Mike Manning on GH is that they have way too many new characters as it is, and he’s either too young or too old to fit any of the long absent roles which might be due for a recast. Now maybe if they cut out some of the dead weight to make room… Whiny Heiny, ToddFroddAustin (I was willing to give the third incarnation a fair chance, but he really brings nothing to the show, yet again) He might fit the role of Lucas Jones actually. Though they rarely write for the character, which is why Ryan… Read more »

Satan, you’re right: If GH ever made a solid commitment to the character of Lucas, Manning would be cool. Also, your idea of Manning being Sam’s bio-brother is golden…

Well, at least three people saw Charlie (or four, counting Carmine the dead mobster), and Nick was apparently seen by a number of people, according to what Kate said to Julie. We know that Phillip saw him, though he dismissed it as some kid’s zombie Halloween costume.

Nicole, on the other horn…. she’s got no corroboration that Deimos came to visit her at work. Unless the stuffed bear starts talking to Rafe again. And no, that wasn’t me making that bear talk, just in case anybody was wondering!!

Hope y’all enjoyed my Helloween prank. Now back to my regularly scheduled possession story…….

Hands down… Nick Fallon (Blake Berris) was completely awesome in the episodes. In my opinion, the best of the three undead returns!

I wish GH could find a home for him as a new character/not Spinelli. Or, maybe he can be a long-lost twin of Nick’s. Blake is a fine actor!

I enjoyed Charlie the best because Mike Manning brought the acting CHOPS. He was always good but MM’s developed even further as an actor since his departure. He was frankly AMAZING, and I told him so on Twitter. A stunning talent!

Bringing back 3 rapists was gross and uncalled for. Especially Charlie because he raped Marlena’s granddaughter. I know this is an outlandish storyline, but some boundaries should be respected and some lines should not be crossed.

It was a great idea to bring back former cast members; certainly unusual. I especially was hooked by Nick. He had such swagger and one-liners; plus he looked amazing! I wish they’d find a way to bring Blake back full-time. Not necessarily as Nick, of course, but as a Horton cousin or something.

I didn’t enjoy any of it. This is the worst storyline Days has ever had, starting with the possession of Marlena again.

HORRIBLE and the worst, the absolute WORST story line they have ever come up with – ridiculous and inane – badly written and poorly acted (for the most part) but then again, in fairness to the actors, they can only do so much when given such atrocious material. If this show continues on this particular path it, like these zombie characters, won’t be long for this World.

It was different for a soap. Dont know how they will explain dead Carmine. I thought the zombies could be scarier though. The rotting limbs should have been dropping off Charlie and roaches or mice should have been involved with Nick and Jake.

I have to say Gabi outdid herself digging up the dirt. She’s always been good at that. One time,around was enough for me with those three guys, although I’d take V.I anytime, on any show.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
