Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives saw many threats made against Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis), and eventually saw the guy left for dead!

It’s Abigail (Marci Miller) who finds her husband’s brother dead on the floor at DiMera Enterprises when we fade to black and are left with a major cliffhanger, and the beginning of a murder mystery, this time under the capable hands of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati.  Prior to his death, Andre revealed his double-crossing of both Gabi (Camila Banus) and Kate (Lauren Koslow), and both women were left not so happy.

In fact, Gabi threatened Andre, and we don’t know exactly what happened with Kate when she all of a suddenpledged her love to Andre, only to have him reveal his very sinister side to her, and what he has been up to.

Chad (Billy Flynn) is not happy with his brother whatsoever, and neither were Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Vivian (Louise Sorel). She wanted to eliminate Andre. Meanwhile, Stefan called someone to possibly do an outside job on his brother.  Anna (Leann Hunley) is quite a suspicious suspect too, because she has an ax to grind with Andre, because of the loss of the love her life, his twin brother, Tony.

So with the investigation about to begin, who do you think will be the prime suspect in Andre’s murder: Anna, Gabi, Kate, Chad, Abigail, Stefan, Vivian, or someone else? Weigh-in via the comment section below!

Tony killed him. Or Anna with the urn.

Because Tony isn’t dead and I bet he’s been impersonating Andre for most of the time.

Ya…i think Tony is around!

I always felt that when they brought Thaao back, he should have been playing Tony. I preferred Tony over Andre so i was disappointed when I learned Thaao was reprising Andre. Would be great if Tony was alive and kicking.

Let’s Correct it now. Thaao should be Tony, the charming, suave, debonair man about town with Anna by his side. Andre was never meant as more than a cartoon villain. Let’s not forget that he viciously stabbed and murdered 5 women in the 80’s. Then there was him as the Faux Killer of 2003. Finally, after years of captivity and abuse and identity swaps, Tony should be able to claim his place as head of DiMera! Now that Stefan O. has arrived, let him be the “bad” DiMera, but let Chad and Tony be the good guys! Every headwriter of DAYS gets sucked into the predictable, boring pattern of thinking that all DiMera’s have to be bad. WHY? Original writing is always better than repetitive copying. I’m not saying that Tony has to be lily white…of course he would resort o unscrupulous means to protect his loved ones, but let it be that instead of just random evil for the sake of evil. Villainy needs motivation, and without it, it is just pointless and unnecessary. I much prefer Chad as a straight up young hero of the show. Maybe it’s his innocent face, or smaller stature….when he makes threats and tries to be menacing, it makes me giggle. Let Chad and Abs be the feature couple on the show and be together. They are marquee and adorable!

I like it, boes.

All the clues are there. It’s ABIGAIL! Remember first and foremost that she is kooky. Then, remember the scene in the Gaby-Sheek offices between Gabi and Abby? While they were talking the camera specifically and purposefully showed us a coat and some wigs. There are three reason Abby did it: 1) Stefan hit on Gabby in front of her on purpose to make her jealous and she has secretly fallen for him. 2.) she walked in on chad and Gabi hugging (making her kray-kray come back) and 3.) when she confronted Andre he showed his true colors to her – there must’ve been some nasty stuff he said cuz she went black, left to get in diaguise then came back and killed him then blocked it out. Stefan will be the one to both protect her (hence the missing footage) and ultimately blackmail her into leaving Chad and being with him.

I said same theory. It was almost obvious from that same episode you talking about on Jan 17th. I rewatched it after today’s episode and confirmed my suspicions with the wigs. And also two different times they zoomed in on her coat and her badge. And roeshadowin* conversation about Vivian saying to Stefan she doesn’t think Abigail is fully well from mental breakdown and could snap anytime soon

Who cares? I’m glad Andre is gone. Days has way too many who-done-it stories, at least two a year.

I disagree. I am going to miss Andre. I hope and pray this does not mean that those fans who love Thaao Penghlis have not lost him on Days.

I love Thaao…..the culprit could be anyone… Vivian, Stefan, Anna, Kate, …even the one we hardly consider plausible, such as Abby.
We must remember that even those we do not suspect could be the culpable….such as Abby and Gabi……both have done the unthinkable, in the past.
So, I guess Gilles will be the attorney defending whomever….

I HOPE NOT @Mary. I truly appreciate what Thaao brings

it’s old skool
it’s classic
it’s elegance
It’s dashing
it’s humor
it’s wit with word and lots of expression
it’s pulling out from… his mind, instinct, tact,

he’s like a one man show.. and WITH Kate and being a DiMera sharing the manse

TONS OF FUN.

I HOPE with; that Andre is pulling a great stunt out of the DiMera hat… and is “faking” his death. to help get the family fortune out of the clutches of Stefan and Vivian.

was Thaao let go for ? Stefan and Vivian ?

all these shows lack in their humor

Andre delivers

it has been written that Thaoo could be making a return. had better turn their

God bless Ron Carlivati!!!!!!!

Absolutely not!

Someone you least suspect.I don’t know who though.

Andre either faked his death, or the presumably dead Andre is actually Tony, who has been in-place of Andre for the past few months.

Andre took a page from Stefano’s playbook and has faked his own murder in order to wreck havoc on the “surviving” members of his family. If I’m right, he will soon be called Phoenix Junior or Phoenix II.

I agree with Boes…that strange “person” taking Anna’s picture….I thought that might be Tony as well. I loved the character of Andre, but let’s face it….I don’t think he was redeemable nor was he evil enough to take over for Stefano!!

“…I don’t think he was redeemable nor was he evil enough to take over for Stefano”

I truly believed this

in the beginning… but.. with RC writing … Andre and Kate become this comedic in the throes, take no prisoners.. enchanted themselves celebrating all the mystique at the DiMera Manse. formidable foes ?

you have to laugh at how well these two are written… nonetheless

Kate and Andre LIVE it was a lively escape to delve in to.. the wit the zingers the laugh… the nuanced word play looks glances.. sideways back to and around. dance

ps: after all… this is Andre time to rally excite and bring about Andre Turnaround

to be taken serious… at the top… and LIVING the life as one, alongside in equal measure

COME ON Andre

I think this is built in and around Vivian.. and Thaao will rise from the ashes and phoenix father , with ring, and chess mate with Chad and drink from gods how Kate is his trusted alliance and lover perhaps

Anna killed him

I’m going to put extra security on Andre this time. He escapes Hell far too often!

It was Sister Mary Moira in the library with a candlestick after she announced that she was pregnant with his baby. She is sad because she gave up her virginity and celibacy for such a wicked wicked evil evil evil man. Go back to the church Sister, you have done something terrible. What will Susan and Kristen think? Actually I tend to go with the Anna theory. She is just whacky enough to take him on. And to join in the chorus of daytime angels singing this hymn: God Bless Ron Carlivati!! I am now singing a solo to rejoice in the renewal of DAYS. Praises be to Ron! Amen.

I think you need also to thank Sheri Anderson!! She wrote through the Glory DAYS of this show and had a hand in either creating or developing many of the characters on air today. Ron has admitted publicly that he doesn’t know the show’s history. Given that Rons last writing stint ended in complete disaster, with GH gutted and broken, I think here at DAYS he is being kept on a very tight leash by Sheri and Boss Corday. Ken wanted the qualities Ron brings to the show: creativity, outlandishness, umbrella plotting, shock value etc. But he NEEDED a writer / watchdog like Sheri who knows the history, understands the importance of the vets, plays family moments, and can keep things grounded. Except for the first few months, which were awful, I think this collaboration has WIN written all over it!!! It is classic DAYS!

I agree that since Ron Carlivati doesn’t know the show’s history he might rely on both Sheri Anderson and Ryan Quan who are his story consultants to keep him grounded and to tell him if he’s going astray.Plus maybe Carlivati needed time to adjust in how he should write for Days and that’s why his first few months were a little bad.

A little bad?? Lol. They were nonsensical and cartoonish and made most of the characters look like morons….which incidentally was exactly what Ron did at GH. The double doppelgänger story went absolutely nowhere, served no purpose, and was mercifully aborted seemingly midstream, although I don’t know how seeing as DAYS tapes so far ahead. Maybe Corday was reading scripts and flipped out and said CUT THIS CRAP AND CHANGE GEARS QUICK! July to October was painful. Nicole’s exit was demeaning and awful and did a disservice to actress and character! Will’s return was kind of weird and anti-climactic. Though I NEVER liked Sami before except for her brief few moments of lucidity and sanity over the years (meaning when she was NOT being written by Jim Reilly), I found her maturity and comfortable ease with the rest of the cast very refreshing! I feared Ron (a writer frightfully similar to Reilly) would have Sami backslide, and come back ranting about Roman and Marlena getting back together, and hating Kate even though they made real peace in 2014. Sami pulled a few wacky stunts on this latest go round, but that was being very true to her character , and you needed that to justify her return, but all that was nicely tempered with genuine maturity!! Since Theo’s shooting, the show has been phenomenal and I think EVERYONE deserves a great deal of credit, but the lion’s share seems to be going to Ron and that seems misplaced and imbalanced.

Mateo…to me, Anna has ALWAYS BEEN LOONEY-TUNEY…PERIOD!!!!!

Just saying……….

I think “Stefan O” arranged to have him attacked and for it to look like a murder…he was against his mother’s plan to murder him…perhaps this was his way of making her think Andre is dead. And, if Tony is still alive (now, I’m new to this show and I don’t know the history so I could be completely off the track, just going by the little I know and have read here)…is it possible he was involved, too?

I think that Andre has faked his death to cause DiMera stock to plummet so he can buy it up and regain control of the company from Stephan and Vivian.

It’s a possibility, Alan….you’re usually quite on the mark.
I think the fact that Vivian was so set on murdering Andre was a ploy to steer us in herbdirection.
If he is, indeed, dead, I bet kate did it, a’ la woman scorned? Enter Gilles?

I’m wondering if Andre was killed during a struggle with someone and so whoever killed him didn’t plan to do it.Also maybe Andre has faked his death and is going to fake either Vivian or Stefan for his “murder”.However if it turns Tony is alive i’m wondering if maybe the show is going to maybe tease that it was Tony who got killed and whoever did it thought it was Andre he or she was killing.That way when and if Tony appears alive the viewers wonder if it’s really Tony or if it’s Andre impersonating Tony again.

Harold. He was tired of picking up Andre’s socks.

HaHa!!

Somebody not on the canvas currently or Vivian.

I think they are putting too much in potential for Stefan O to have him commit murder. I think he and Vivian planned it but somebody got to him first. Doubt highly it was Anna nor Gabi.

Yes, Chrystie….I thought the same thing. Vivian is too obvious. Anna will be a suspect…. as will Gabi because of Andre firing her; I mean, she announced it to a few people, so…..
I like your idea thst it coukd be someone not known to us.
Greg Rikaard?… he’s coming soon, isn’t he?
What if Tony, who fell off the pier while arguing with Phillip did not die? This solidifies boes theory. Tony killed Andre our of revenge? Maybe Andre held Tony prisoner, and he finally escaped? Not probable?

Hey, CeeCeeGirl!!! The real culprit is Victor Cassadine…he didn’t actually die in the Crichton-Clark explosion and he’s hiding out in Salem!!!! At least that’s my wishful thinking since I want to see Victor return to Port Charles one day!

@Shay,
Hey, you…good to “see” you here.
You know, Shay, when the Days ‘team’ was shipwrecked on a Greek island, I made a similar comment. …..that is; Nikolas Cassadine was stranded there as well. LOL.
Yeah, so, Victor was perhaps impersonating Andre…..how witty of you, ma belle…
Keep on watching, bella….

Well, once this Faison thing is settled in Port Charles, I might as well “check out “ of GH and find another soaptown to visit! With no Genie Francis/Laura to assume the mantle of mayor, that storyline has been sullied to the max…I’ve no interest in watching the contest as it now stands, although I do have a suitably fitting campiagn slogan for Ned….”Quartermaine or Bust!” What do you think, CeeCeeGirl???? Works for me….

Okay I think that I figured this one out.I believe that Abby killed Andre well first he fires her then he takes away her company from her and Abby has killed before who is to say she wouldn’t do it again.I mean she was angry as all hell.

whoops I mean Gabby

I think the killer is Abby. She became his biggest supporter and seemed horrified when she discovered his body. She’s the last person some people would suspect, but one shouldn’t forget Abby’s propensity for profound behavior…the girl has gone crazy on a crazy person before!! Abby just doesn’t remember she killed him, but eventually she will.

Yes, 4ever….if you read my post, that’s the first thing I said?….Abby is the last person we’d think would kill Andre…. as is Gabi.
The only thing that strikes a discordant note is her tears….Abby looked sincerely shocked!!!! ….and in real pain.
Remorse??

I think Abby blocked it out, Celia. She’s experiencing PTSD and a possible split personality. Maybe she does remember and at first she thought it was a dream, like when she dealt with Ben, the root of her problems. Juicy stuff!

OOOOOHH, 4ever…I like that…Abby blocked it out !!! Makes a lot of sense. And, what a plot-line that would make!!!! I hope it works out that way…..I wonder, though, for how long will the mystery of “who done it”, go on…??

John Black.

What about Hattie escaping Statesville to get back at her Alfie by killing him??

That’s a good one. I miss Hattie.

Hold the phone. If this guy is indeed Andre, who cares who killed him? He was a psychopath serial killer who gruesomely stabbed and murdered multiple women in the early 1980’s. He also tried to kill Hope and Marlena while framing Roman in the process. Why are Kate and Abby all sentimental about this monster? Why would one of his victims, Hope, be trying to find his executioner? She executed Stefano, who deserved it. Roman saved her butt. Why the hard line with Roman and Anna about even filthier trash like Andre?

I tried to watch this show again because I loved ONE LIFE TO LIVE. However, anyone who writes for DAYS should know the show enough that Andre is the most evil, cruelest of DAYS’ pantheon of villains and serial killers. What next? Is Jake Kositchek going to return from the dead and be buddies with Roman, Marlena and Abe? This is sick. Someone needs to stop RC immediately and give him a history lesson.

Just rewatch the Jan 17th episode. Soooo obvious. Suspected it right after murder happened. Every single person looked guilty or like they knew something about it when they heard of andres death. The only person that showed real shock and emotion was one person. And I said yup there is yourkiller. ABIGAIL!!! Just watch that episode again. 1)Vivian foreshadowing conversation with Stefan about Abigail not being stable and could snap anytime 2)Abigail walking in on chad hugging gabi 3)gabi office with all those wigs in there 4)at least 2 maybe 3 close ups of gabi jacket and id badge. Which isn’t really relevant till after today’s episode. But 100 percent now proof it’s abigail

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Photo: JPI

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

Photo: JPI

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Return to Days of our Lives to Celebrate Abe and Paulina’s Juneteenth Wedding Anniversary and a ‘Going Away’ Party

There are several reasons that Days of our Lives favorites Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani) are making a return on the Wednesday, June 19th episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera.

First, Lani and Eli come back to Salem to celebrate the wedding anniversary of Abe (James Reynolds) and Paulina (Jackee Harry), which happened on Juneteenth Day which is on June 19th.

Juneteenth, which is a Federal holiday, is an annual commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States after the Civil War, has been celebrated by African Americans since the late 1800s.

Meanwhile, the return also serves as a “apparent” send-off for Johnny (Carson Boatman) and Chanel (Raven Bowens), who are set to depart Salem, since Johnny landed his dream job in California.

Look like Elani is also attending their going away party, but are the departing couple (with Chanel being pregnant) really going to leave Salem? Stay tuned.

Stowers made her first Days of our Lives appearance back in September of 2015. Lani is the adoptive daughter of Abe and the biological daughter of Paulina. As for Archey, he arrived on the scene in 2017 as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) grandson. Sal and Lamon were last seen on-screen in March of this year.

Looking forward to seeing Eli and Lani back on DAYS? Do you think Johnny and Chanel are exiting the Salem canvas? Comment below.
