Days Of Our Lives

Who's Framing Chad DiMera For The Necktie Murders On DAYS?

Courtesy/NBC

Courtesy/NBC

Things are looking so bad for Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).  First, Serena Mason (Melissa Archer) is found murdered following a drunken altercation between her and Chad.

Next, after having a confrontation at the Horton Town Square with Paige Larson (True O’Brien), she is next found dead.  Both women have necktie’s draped around their lifeless bodies.  Each time a murder has happened, Chad has awakened from what seems to be a drunken stupor and clueless to what transpired, before he got to his room.   Was he dumped in the room by someone else?  Who is framing the young DiMera?  Is someone drugging him and spiking his drinks?  Clearly, Chad is not the culprit.

The early odds look predictable: either slimeball Clyde Weston (James Read), or his in-need-of anger-management-lesson son, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is setting Chad up to take the fall.   But is it it really one of these two guys?  Both certainly have cause to want Chad out of the way …  for good!

Watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS after the jump.  Then weigh-in:  Who is setting up Chad DiMera for the murders of these two young women?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Please do not make this mystery an obvious one a las GH’s Who Killed Silas? plot. I am hoping for some genuine twists and turns. DAYS is really working well for this disenfranchised soap fan. Looked to Salem after ATWT and AMC closed shop and have been happy for most part. I worry about some of this secret agent stuff but hope it will not become hokey or strain credulity.

A great twist would be it ‘IS’ Chad after all!!!

Agreed, Iakovos. The obvious answer is Clyde. Too easy? Yeah. I think the best twist would be for Ben to have multi personalities….well, at least two….he should be the killer. No one will ever guess…..well for a while. Can you imagine tracking his girlfriend on his phone? Good grief, he’s got issues. WOW!!!! it is a true manifestation of mental instability. Maybe he killed his own mother and blocked it out? I would say the other candidate/suspect is Aiden. The writers are doing their best to tease us and, at times, throw us off track, but, just like MadMaddie, it… Read more »

Well, the killer could be Ben. He does have motive to kill women and frame Chad. Ben is not a fool; he know deep down inside that Abby is in love with Chad.

Aiden is out at Days…also kind of an obvious choice for the killer because he has the shady past and secrets etc.

I don’t know who Celeste is, Torqumada. I’ve only been watching for a few years. But, maybe, Susan….isn’t she the one who says, eeeeeveeel? ….which brings Kristen to mind. LOL. Let’s go aaaall the way and say it was she. We already know she has nine lives. But, I don’t see the motive. I would think if Kristen were to be back, the first person she’d kill would be Theresa, no? Or Marlena? I guess, I answered my own question, LOL. later.

Guest

It’s driving me crazy! Logically (a word one should never use for a soap) Clyde would be the #1 suspect. He killed Serena & Paige to set-up Chad and he also killed Paige to show JJ he means business. He attacked Marlena because he’s probably having Chad followed and knows Marlena will get to the truth and the last time Marlena & Clyde talked it was very strange. This is a soap though. That scenario might be too easy and it very well could be Ben. I guess we get to find out tomorrow 9/24. Someone had a good thought,… Read more »

Doug and Caroline are having a secret love affair behind Julie’s back and are taking turns killing off all those who have seen them making out in their favorite love nest…those fake woods…this explains why there are no birds or squirrels in these woods…these sadistic Senior Salem Stranglars will kill off animals too…no wonder Betty White wont watch…lol

Chad mentioned to Rafe that he got drunk faster than he thought, and twice when he drank he was knocked out so someone is putting something stronger in his alcohol.

Notice how Clyde was at the bar when Clyde and Serena were drinking? Clyde must’ve spiked his drinks at the bar and put it in his bottles at home.

sue

ive been saying that, if ya notice Clyde is usually near Chad when hes at the club and he is prob sneaking in his room and spiking the bottles if liquor thats in Chads room, maybe Clyde and Justin is working together

CeeCee

@sue/@blake.
I will believe anything underhanded by the despicable Clyde, but I don’t think Justin is dirty. He just hates all things DiMera and wants to make a killing, if you will. Later, guys.

Exactly. The drug lord ‘took care’ of Chad, alright!!

Yeah in a new promo Clyde is right behind Chad in the bar and of course Chad has a drink.

Maybe its the bartender…or Chad is nuts with a split personality and as ‘Brad’ is framing himself for the murders he really is committing!!!

Hey, jimh. I said something like that….except that it’s Ben with the multiple personalities. That guy is strange.

I was hoping it was Xander, but he was in jail when Serena was killed. I’m hoping that it is either Clyde or his son Ben. I have no use for Clyde at all, he is a waste of air time. He thinks he is smarter than anyone.

Ben has a really bad temper and he is being manipulate by his father. Anyone who has an app on their phone to keep track of their girlfriend has a serious problem of trust.

Lots of good red herrings…but who has the potential to drive a twisty, nail biting and dramatic story line? Ben.

I think the writers missed a few important scenes in the past week. Where were the scenes with JJ telling Jennifer, Abigail, Daniel and Theresa. I like a fast-paced storyline, but slow it down enough to have the scenes that we want to see. Why wasn’t Abigail concerned about Paige dying instead of Chad being jailed? Why was Theresa worried about become Nicole’s business partner instead of being with Eve?

4ever DAYS

Theresa doesn’t know about Paige’s death.

Isn’t that an oversight by TPTB, 4ever?!… By the same token, wouldn’t the entire town know by now? …unless some are living under a rock. It’s all over the papers, no? Later.

I am trying to keep track of everyone’s neckties to see if any of them end up around someone’s neck– I want to guess Justin because he is so eager to get Chad for the murders, but I am hoping it will be someone we will never guess, which is the fun of a good murder mystery

Let’s add Adian to that list of possible serial killer. The metrosexual has had it with his pretend feelings for Hope.
Here is a thought. Could the killer be a past character on Days Of Our Lives that will be revealed on the 50th Anniversary episode?
I’m going to enjoy Thaao P. returning as Andre DiMera. Is Andre jealous of Chad being a DiMera? Could it be Andre framing Chad?

Hi,
These murders have proven one thing. Our minds are working overtime. The result? It could be anyone….a present, past or future character. I think the writers have accomplished what they probably set out to do. Keep us guessing and on our toes….Thing is, if this storyline/guessing game is prolonged; knowing myself, I will most likely lose interest….like the Fluke story….stale and flat.

i’m going to be crushed if it’s true about Kassie DePaiva

she belonged in the big leagues of the vets plus leading lady status…. it’s not her fault the writing was so stymied and left her , on her own. WASTE!

It’s probably Ben who’s trying to frame Chad, but neither him, nor Clyde are the necktie killer. I think it’s Eric. When Kristen drugged him and he had lost his memory, I think that drug did something to his mind, and he has 2 personalities. Like a Jeckle and Hyde type. So he has no clue to what he’s done. And he doesn’t need a motive, something just snaps, and he turns into the killer. Maybe something triggers this, and he kills that person who sets him off. And Ben and Clyde are just taking advantage of the situation, planting… Read more »

They said the killer is supposed to be a ” legacy” character and someone that´s been on for years. I think that leaves out Ben and Clyde directly. Both too obvious choices, although Ben with his creepy vibes and anger problem seems realistic. And he would want to get Chad out and away from Abby´s life. However my money is on either Daniel, Eric or Justin. Both Eric and Justin are behaving very oddly and out of normal. Eric feels kind of dark to me right now. Justin seems way too eager to nail Chad too. Lucas? The poor guy… Read more »

It’s definitely not Chad — obvious that some one is setting him up. Not Clyde either, he’s got something else up his sleeve — maybe killing Daniel (since he’s close with JJ and Shawn Christian is leaving the show). The killer is most likely Andre who comes back this month — he’s out to get anyone that stands in his way of DeMera money, etc., — including Chad, and is also out to get revenge on John! Anyway, that’s what I think!

Kelly
Guest

I heard this crazy rumor that it’s not really Andre who returns; it’s actually Tony who has been pretending to be Andre. As I said it’s a very crazy rumor. I still think the killer is Ben who has deep seeded rage because Abby is in love with Chad.

I think I know that slimeball Clyde Weston drugged Chad’s drink just as sure as he killed EJ and he also had Sonny stabbed in the Park the man is certifiable he needs to be arrested before any more mayhem continues

Yesterday Abby said to Ben “I don’t know who you are sometimes” giving the viewer a slight hint that Ben has two distinct personalities. So, it could be Ben who is the Salem cheap polyester necktie killer. Then again, it could be Clyde.
Maybe it’s Cierra, Hope’s bratty kid.
She’ll be convicted and sent away to Little Girl Prison and when she gets released she will of course be played by a 25 year old.

I am ready for the killer to be revealed. I understand it showed Ben throwing the ties away today, but I don’t think it is him. I still think it is his dad Clyde. They could be working together.

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.
