New Years in Salem looks to rock the world of many of its long time and newbie residents, especially in the love, romance, and sex department!

In this week’s promo from NBC’s Days of our Lives, can Jarlena (Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall) finally reunite and ring in 2015 as the couple everyone wants to see in each other arms?   Will young buck JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) reveal to his girlfriend Paige (True O’ Brien) that the reason he dumped her is that he has been having cougar sex with her mother … Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva)?

And what about Melanie (Molly Burnett) and Brady (Eric Martsolf)? These besties look like they are about to try their chance on love with each other! Is it a good idea this time around in their relationship?  And, there is also new arrival Serena (Melissa Archer) and her quest to nab her former flame Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan)? Can she do it  … or will Nicole (Arianne Zucker) put a stop to that?

But, perhaps the moment everyone will be talking about is just who is clinking glasses come midnight between Sonny (Freddie Smith), Will (Guy Wilson), and Paul (Christopher Sean)?  Will Sonny reunite for some lovin with his ex?  Or, could Will hit the sheets with the man he is writing an expose’ on?

Watch the DAYS promo after the jump! Then, let us know who you want to ring in the New Year together in Salem!

Days has very few couples to cheer about…John and Marlena…Victor and Maggie…Erik and Serena are the only three twosomes that feel couplish…wish Doug and Julie had stayed longer…hopefully next year Brady and Theresa and Paul and Sonny will be added to my list…what really would make it a Happy New Year is Kristen had return just as Brady is about to plant a kiss on dopey dimwitted Melanie Jonas its Kristen who steps between them and is kissed instead followed by fireworks…now thats fireworks id enjoy on January 1st!!!…lol

Michael, is this even a question needing asking??? John and Marlena are SOOOOO OVERDUE! Jarlena fans are dying over this promo. OK next up…Michael visits the DHs on set, cause we love you behind the scenes!!

I despise Eric and Serena. They have ZERO chemistry. And if Eric pouts any more about Nicole I might crawl through the pile of vomit and my television screen to punch him. He is so annoying. He forgives Kristen and Marlena and Sami but he WON’T forgive Nicole? She may have lied to him but she lied to him because she LOVED him. I hope Nicole gets a real man and that Eric suddenly realizes he is gay and leaves all those horrible women behind and gets some real action. Maybe he can be with Paul or Sonny after one… Read more »

By far John and Marlena! DAYS needs one couple that is inspirational and proves their love can get through anything, that is John and Marlena IMO. The rest, I have no interest in, I just keep replaying the John and Marlena parts. Love seeing Drake Hogestyn’s beautiful smile and seeing this awesome actor back in Salem where he belongs!

Want to see some real romance and adventure as only John and Marlena can deliver!! They are two wasted actors who could really turn days around.

Without John and Marlena front and center this show is history. I for one am sick of bringing in all the young ones and just as fast they are gone. It’s a revolving door and the true actors are on the side lines. One more benching of Drake and I’m done after more than 40 yrs.

Duh
Guest
Duh

Jarlena, of course! The fans deserve it after the crapfest that has continued for the last two years..

Couldn’t care less about any other couples on this show atm, the writing’s all over the place.. This show desperately needs a new writing team before the 50th anniversary.

I so hope that JJ and Paige can be reunited. They are so cute together. I am very hopeful for Eric and Serena. I realize we don’t know anything about her except that she was loving enough to let Eric go when he felt called to the priesthood. In my book, that is genuine love. Melanie seems to be eyeing Brady awfully hard. Considering that Theresa and Kristen are still on the loose, I don’t know if that’s a wise choice for her to make.

The couple I want to see on New Years Eve, is John & Marlena. After everything they’ve been through, he’s FINALLY back home where he belongs! I’m hoping this NYE is the beginning of a nice romantic storyline for them – gimme some conversations, apologies, forgiveness, looks, flirting, dancing, hugs, etc for #Jarlena in 2015!! I like other couples on Days, but the reason I watch is for John & Marlena!!! XOXOXO, Michael!!!

Besides Doug and Julie, John and Marlena are the glue that holds Days of our Lives together. We must get them back together so that the generations of fans can have something to watch. I like new characters, but it is the tried and true characters that we grew up with that make the show what it is. Give me a hot sexy scene between John and Marlena any day! Their chemistry is unmatched and they will always do it better than anyone on daytime!

You said that perfectly Chris, J&M are PERFECTION…I don’t think you can get the whole story days is telling with regards to them by watching just the DH’s so it is wise to pay attention to other things happening along the way. Days need to be multi -generation to move ahead. I could easily watch them as much as when they were on in the 90’s daily, but there must be a balance of both. BALANCE currently not getting that BALANCE

Love this week’s preview because it is about time for John & Marlena to ring in the new together (most romantic couple on TV) and hopefully be front burner in 2015 storylines. They are the only reason I watch. They are #1 :)))

geez how irritating that we cannot see these promo vids in Canada. I am over John and Marlena and looking forward to a younger less botoxed couple to save the show. As a 49 tr watcher I know that it was younger couples who made the show for me when I was younger so to keep this show on the tube we can no longer rely on old relationships. They are boring like watching paint dry. I want Theresa to come out shining in the new year.

It had better be John and Marlena! I have watched this show for 39 years. Have watched Drake hogestyn from his first day. He and deidre and their characters are my favorite.I have been extremely disappointed in how Days writers started writing andportraying them. Not true to character.
Truly hoping the writers reunite John and Marlena. And please quit underutilizing and sidelining Drake. He is a great actor!

I’m past ready for some John and Marlena. We’ve waited long enough. Let’s get them back together.

I love John and Marlena, with Bo gone they are the lone standing couple(to me) on the show. DAYS has kinda gone downhill lately, IMO. TOO much focus was spent on Daniel and Jennifer, a couple that in reality, never got off the ground. Daniel is overused PERIOD. There are WAY too many new characters, Paul, Paige, Eve(recast, but still), Theresa, Ben, Clyde, Jordan. The exit of Sami Brady was one of the worst things I have ever seen. If you are a sami-fan, after watching her grow up on screen and watch her go through 10 or more weddings,… Read more »

And now Serena, yet ANOTHER newbie. Bring Billie back and have her had a past with Aiden!! And bring back Bill Horton and Laura and have Kate battle Laura for Bill!!!!

Jeremy
Guest

Lucas definitely needs a storyline! And, I too, agree to bring back a new Shawn-D and the old Belle, and a new Billie Reed…or bring back Krista Allen or Julie Pinson, and I’d love a new Peter Blake return to Salem, too.

richard
Guest
richard

The character of Peter Blake-DiMera definitely needs to return, It would shake up jennifer, Kristen and Stefano, and Chad would have some real comp for the DiMera empire. I could SO see Peter hooking up with Kate. I wish it could be Jason Brooks! He is GORGEOUS!!

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

Yeah, he would shake them all up. I too, wish it could be Jason Brooks, but I believe that would be highly doubtful. How about Agent Sloane, Robb Derringer from GH, he recently wrapped up his arc. Jason and Robb are the same age. DAYS pick up Robb Derringer as Peter BLAKE.

richard
Guest
richard

He would be a good replacement. But that incident with Missy Reeves was in the mid-90s, you don’t think they could move past that for the sake of the show? I can just think of the flashbacks with him and Eileen Davidson!! Their brother/sister chemistry was/is unmatched!!!!

Jeremy
Guest
Jeremy

The flashbacks would indeed be grand with Peter (Jason Brooks) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson), however at the end of the day…it’s probably not all that necessary. DAYS made up a few flashback scenes with Missy Reeves and Kassie DePavia. It was ok, though if DAYS brought in Robb Derringer as Peter Blake, they could do that, too. I’d just really like to see Kristen bring Peter with her in February. Come on DAYS, hire Robb Derringer as Peter!!!

I have always loved Julie Pinson,
I have always believe she and Bryan Dattilo/Lucas would make a awesome
couple, they could bring her back as a new character for Lucas.

I hope it is revealed that Serena is John’s daughter from Diana Colville. She was played by Genie Francis and her mother’s name was Serena. I hope the show learned from their mistake in hiring Chrishell Stause and tying her to no one on the canvas. It doesnt work. Plus, then maybe we could get Genie Francis back on t.v. GH has made it painfully clear that they have no interest in Genie or the character Laura or the greatest supercouple of all soap time, Luke and Laura. The Cartini regime spat on that legacy and delivered a big F… Read more »

Great idea…and i have a feeling you are right…the way Serena looked at Marlena when she first showed up in Salem, and now Johns return…i dont think its just a coinkydink…lol

Have been replaying this weeks preview over & over only because of J&M. They have been on the backburner for too long now. Hope they will have a great storyline for 2015 I hope they will be front and center. They are the major reason I watch this show. We deserve it after the nonsense we have had to endure with J&M for the last two years, it did not make sense AT ALL!!!

Drake Hogestyn and Deidre Hall are the core of Days ! We have waited along time to see <3 John and Marlena together doing what they do BEST Romance <3 They have chemistry that has been there since Hello, I hope we get see this storyline be the love story for John and Marlena .

Definitely John and Marlena! They should have never been split up in the first place. The writers messed up big time. I just hope that they do a reunion justice because this couple and the DH’s deserve it! Not to mention the fans will come back in droves if they are reunited.

I want John back on my TV screen; so that means Jarlena! That’s a fact! A fab actor such as Drake Hogestyn ,in my opinion, has been so underused lately on #DAYS! The show is not the same with out Drake! I pray the writers give John a juicy storyline: with a lot of air time. That means more than 2 minute scenes please! Thanks!

omg, whoever hooks up on ny eve please dont have melanie involved! she hasnt been back for a couple of weeks and im already sick of her! has she been on every day?! days would be smart to give abigail a real love intrest and put her front and center! imo kate mansi is the next alison sweeney, stop wasting her time with beefcake ben, and give her a real storyline! as well the dimera legacy is watered with chad at the head! seriously a cafe owner who just came out of the hospital and previously wanted nothing to do… Read more »

Jeremy

yeah, I can’t stand melanie, either. what a poor choice to bring her back. I too, like Kate Mansi and I do not like her with the Ben character. He is dead boring. The first Ben was more mysterious, new Ben is just banal. Abigail does need a new major new storyline.

I didn’t understand the big hooplah with Melanie returning, either. She was never my favorite character. I haven’t watched the show since she’s been back. Just been peaking on here to get an update every now and then.

Unfortunately, I could really care less. I’m very disappointed in DAYS. I usually tune back in when Eileen Davidson returns. Two years ago, I was addicted to DAYS. Loved seeing Eileen then-playing John, playing Brady, having Marlena as a nemesis. The writing and storylines at that time were sensational. Now, I’m just bored.

If the writers can wipe the slate clean and have John and Marlena start rebuilding whats left of their relationship this will be an AMAZING New Year!!!!! John and Marlena are the foundation of that show and have proven that not only does the public love them but we support them and all of their inherent ups and downs; when it is meant to be it is meant to be! #jm4evamore

I think Nicole and Daniel should try it out! She has been sad and hurting bc of what Eric did to her! Ya so what she lied to him big deal! Forgive is what the bible says and is he not suppose to be a man of the lord? I think when he actually sees Nicole happy with someone else it will hit him hard and make him realize he lost a good person and the one who really loved him! Yes I would love for Nicole and Eric together again bc they are a great couple! Playing a little… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
