Have we had the episode yet where Mar-Devil imitates Belle and has sex with Shawn and the REAL Belle walks in on them? laugh!

so i'm wondering he couldn't tell the puss of his wife from his mother in law decades older? or did her mar-devil powers including perfectly matching her body along with her face of Belle? will marlena once she is not possessed anymore remember she had sex with her son in law and loved it? laugh!...

what a kinky storyline/scene!...

^ I was hoping that wasn't Mar-devil in that shot.

I like the possession angle as it isn't something done every year on a soap but

these ideas like John being held in the crypt are just a waste of time & $.

I don't know how NBC let some of these dumb ideas get made.

by Anonymousreply 16December 9, 2021 6:05 PM

I was kind of curious about the possession story line and caught the first couple of episodes where Doug was possessed. He did a great job and came off like some force of evil. I lost interest when they shifted to camping it up with possessed Marlena. I understand why they wanted their star to be possessed and give Evans some scenery to chew, but I would have been more interested if they went down a different path this time. They also really, really want to make everyone love Ben and Ciera and think they are the greatest super couple ever. There are worse twentysomething soap opera actors out there, but they are not as great as the powers that be want us to think they are.

I agree. Doug (Bill Hayes) is amazing as a 96-year-old PERSON, much less as an accomplished actor.

At this moment, I hope I don't live to see my 96th birthday (despite being an eldergay, I'm not that eld, and don't really see myself getting there). But if I do, I hope I'm as "with it," active and bright as Mr Hayes.

Shawn Douglas has to fantasize about Ben or Phillip or Brady to get it up. He is NOT paying any attention to what Belle has down there. In fact, he's trying hard to ignore her vagina all together.

Belle wears a strap-on and pegs Shawn Douglas. And if that's actually MarDevil in bed with him, then she's going to surprise him with something bigger.in the harness.

by Anonymousreply 24December 9, 2021 8:24 PM

[quote]Shawn Douglas has to fantasize about Ben or Phillip or Brady to get it up.

Phillip is actually Shawn Douglas' uncle, Bo is Shawn-D's father and Victor K is Bo's father as well as Philip's father.

Brady is Shawn D's cousin. Brady's mother was Isabella, who was the daughter of Victor K.

That's not to say that Shawn Douglas isn't fantasizing about Phillip and Brady while struggling to get hard for Belle. Just pointing out that Shawn D is related to them.

But then Shawn D. is related to more people in town than anyone else currently on the canvas. Shawn is a Horton, a Brady and a Kiriakis. Only people in town he's not related to are the DiMera and the Hernandez families.

So, maybe Shawn is fantasizing about Chad and Jake, as well as Ben while waiting for that viagra to kick in for Belle. Viagra is the only way Shawn D. has ever been able to fuck Belle.

by Anonymousreply 25December 9, 2021 8:41 PM

Didn't he fuck her at the Last Blast?

by Anonymousreply 26December 9, 2021 8:54 PM

Shawn D was straight during the Last Blast. That was when Jason Cook was playing him.

Shawn D became gay when Brandon Beemer started playing him in 2007.

by Anonymousreply 27December 9, 2021 9:01 PM

You guys ...sigh.

Let it go. The guy's an okay actor. So what if he's gay? The character isn't. So stop with the "he can't fuck Belle" stuff. You're literally conjuring up something out of nothing.

And there are worse things going on with this show than some guy maybe not seeming straight enough to you.

It's such a bummer seeing gay people mock other men for not seeming straight enough. We get that crap daily from most of the world. Why dish it out?

I agree they should have stuck to Doug as the posessed one longer - he was actually creepy.

Dee just seems pissy/campy. What's the deal with the Cin baby anyway? Satan need a new volleyball or something?

by Anonymousreply 28December 9, 2021 9:11 PM

They should run with ShawnD and Ben.

Guys wanting to fuck their sister's husband/boyfriend is porntastic.

by Anonymousreply 138December 25, 2021 1:54 AM

R138 Also, how were they able to declare him dead. I know it can legally be done, but it requires the person to be missing more than a day or two. If not must of us would have been declared dead multiple times.

It was more than just a simple missing person case. There was evidence of assault (Phillip's blood and phone were found on Brady) and possible homicide. Phllip's prosthetic leg was dredged up from the river. DA Trask assumed Phillip himself was in the river and drowned. She thought it would only be a matter of time till his body was found, so she applied emotional pressure on Kate and Victor to declare Phillip dead ASAP so she could arrest Brady before he could, she feared, flee from Salem.

R141 I understand all that, in fact if she was a competent DA I'm sure she could find a way to arrest him based on the wealth of circumstantial evidence, without the need for the parents to declare him dead. Also, as she is a lawyer, I would expect her to know that having a person declared dead is a legal preceding that follows certain rules, such as the person being missing for a period of years. It is not getting the worried senior citizen parents of somebody to sign a piece of paper.

I don't expect them to follow the law closely on the show, but at least make it plausible enough that a layman could buy it. I wouldn't mind playing a lawyer on a soap, but I swear being the DA on one in the last few decades would be awful. With the rise of the anti-hero, they are now set up to be the ones you hate because they are always prosecuting the ones everyone loves. Whereas, The Edge of Night's central character spent different stints as DA or in the office and was always the hero.

With that move, WilSon can then carry on Tom & Alice's venture to open the place to wayward youth, with it becoming like a Boys Halfway House.

I get why KA balked - she had no reason to trust them anymore, evrn though the plan to rest Hope for 6 months and then bring her back with a sexy new guy was solid. Of course if they'd written something better for her, there'd have been no need to rest the character. Hope got pretty screwed-up these last few years, though the damage wasn't permanent.

It's possible that the plan would have resulted in her taking a pay cut, however. The "dump you and invite you back for less" approach. That probably pissed her off more than anything since John, Marlena, Bo and Hope have long been the face of the series. Peter left and she stayed and waited and her loyalty was rewarded with watching as Hope circled the drain narratively. Why should she be punished and take a pay cut? Is she really worth less now that Peter R is gone? Why? Was Hope only interesting to the producers as Bo's wife?

^ I imagine that was her inner dialogue.

I really would want her around for whatever's coming up with Doug and Julie. I hope she can return for their sake.

I think KA was stupid for leaving. However, it was great to find out how much she hates Dee Hall. I mean cropping her out of pictures hate. That was some funny shit.

But anyway, she should have taken the 6 months to refresh and come back with a renewed interest. I think KA is like Genie Francis. They're both ticked off that they were part of these mega popular couples, where the males were viable without them, but they weren't viable without the male part of their supercouple. GH keeps Genie around for nostalgia purposes, but she could be taken out of the show in a second and no one would miss a beat. Same with Hope. Is the character's absence being felt on screen. No, not really.

by Anonymousreply 209December 29, 2021 1:16 PM

White that is understandable r208 and I'm not denying Hope's contribution to the site, KA is an actress whose main job is to create a believable character in whatever situation given to her. Why is she taking it personally what storyline the character is given?

It is well publicized how the show in general is working on a reduced budget: this isn't the golden age of soaps anymore. Taking a pay cut should be expected, especially since she's marginally good as an actress (tame that cartoon eyebrow lady) and this has happened progressively with her colleagues over the years. From what I understood, she had it made for a long time, even with a coveted dressing room that people fought for after she left.

I just felt her reactions were irrational.

Now to Missy Reeves back as Jennifer; while the fraus believe she "owns" the role, I don't think she is entitled to it. Her religious, bigoted politics was making some staff uncomfortable and, furthermore, shouldn't the actress who actually won an Emmy for the role (Cady) get to continue playing it?

by Anonymousreply 210December 29, 2021 1:19 PM

Missy Reeves and I are on different ends of the political spectrum, but I believe that the role is hers. And it bothers me that a lot of fans can't seem to separate actors from characters anymore.

That was definitely true 1983-87, the Bo & Hope heyday. They did not like each other & he was kind of a jerk to her. They've both admitted this in interviews. She was very green (to put it mildly) when hired, and he was kind of full of himself (as a thespian) and had no patience with her. He also poked fun at her about her weight, apparently.

Yet, despite their problems, it was Kristian who wanted Peter back -- and Robert Kelker-Kelly GONE -- in 1995. The devil you know, I guess. (jerk vs. creep) Anyway, it seems that they buried the hatchet a long time ago.

Genie Francis I believe once said in an interview that Deidre made no attempt at all to try to stop Marlena fans from blaming her as the reason why she was no longer on the show at that time.

SOD 2022 preview:


Johnny and Chanel comeback from Italy married. This was an impul- sive decision that they are happy with; they love each other. They go into this new year full of hope and just shortly afterward, every- thing comes crashing down and it sends the couple in two totally different directions. Chanel will logically turn to her best friend, Allie, for comfort."


In the aftermath of these blown-up nuptials, you see Johnny taking a sudden interest in Gabi, and Gabi and Jake realize that they might be able to use it to their advantage. The fact that Johnny has come of age and has shares of DiMera could fit into their takeover plan."


Abigail is embracing her investigative reporter roots, and offers to help Maggie track down Sarah. When Gwen gets wind that Abigail is on the case, she does not react well and just assumes that Abigail is doing this intentionally because she wants to try to come between Gwen and Xander. So that causes a big clash between the sisters. Even though these questions are start- ing to bounce around about Sarah, Xander realizes the person that has been there for him this whole time, and maybe is his possible soul mate, is Gwen. So Xander proposes to Gwen, which of course is wrapped up in this search for Sarah.


After the exorcism, everyone is thrilled to have Marlena back to normal, but people aren't going to just forget about that so easily. So even though Marlena is filled with remorse, some of her memories of the things she's done are very hazy. So she goes on her apology tour and may have to account for some of the things that she did.


Brady hires Steve to find Kristen and this kind of comes off of the whole Philip affair and the possibility that Kristen could have somehow been involved. So Steve's about to head off on this mission and Kayla decides she wants to help, so we thought it would be fun to involve Kayla and put them on an adventure together, in an old school supercouple way.


EJ has been falsely accused of kidnap- ping Sami and there is some evidence that points to him, but he is continuing to pro claim his innocence. Belle ends up making a kind of controversial decision to represent EJ, and it's going to be a problem. Some pretty dramatic stuff happens in court that may totally throw the whole case.


Chad ends up in a very interesting spot. He's got some crucial infor mation, but will he come forward? Kate gets on to the fact that Chad has this big secret, and Kate is someone that potentially has the ability to turn Chad more toward the dark side. You'll have to wait and see how that plays out."

Interesting R259.

I have always like the Marlena character. Although I like her more in her psychiatrist role and less in her super action damsel in distress who needs to be rescued by John role.

But I know nothing about Deidre Hall. Maybe she is a diva?

I can imagine with the tight shooting schedule some people manage to get on each others nerves on the set.

Ha ha - her early 80's sweat shop mentality in getting her looney fans to buy up dozens of Daytime TV or Soap Opera Digest to KEEP HER NUMBER ONE in fan polls was worthy of General McArthur. SHE really should be a producer. She's smarter than Ken Corday, who does his late parents shame. Days is a melodramatic mess since the Luke and Laura copycatting. If elder gays recall the show's peak, 1967-1976, there is no comparison, and no coincidence that Dee started in 1976, and she embraced every crazy plot twist. The shame is the chemistry she had with Jed Allen and Wayne Northrop humanized Marlena. Now she's just a stunt.

[quote]The shame is the chemistry she had with Jed Allen and Wayne Northrop humanized Marlena. Now she's just a stunt.

Yes, the pairing with John, which her fans loved, did no favors for her acting or for Marlena as a character. She was so appealing in the 70s and early 80s, but being yoked to a bad actor seemed to have made her just give up. She's relied on an increasingly limited box of performance tricks for the past 30 years.

What she has continued to be very good at, however, is harnessing (some would say weaponizing) a crazily devoted fan base, sometimes at the expense of other actors. I think Alfonso thought she was finally rid of her when Corday fired Hall and Hogestyn in 2008, but she came back and Alfonso, who had become the Queen Bee, was not thrilled.

And I don't care for the supernatural s/l's either. MarDevil was mildly amusing but mostly unnecessary.

The creep defending Reeves' proud homophobia in this thread is a bisexual. Big surprise, huh?

Gay men are the ones who suffer from homophobia, like when Reeves purposefully went to Chik-Fil-A on the sit-out/kiss-in day, ordered food for her family, and then brazenly Tweeted, "MM-MM! Tastes GREAT!"

Even Reeves' friend Crystal Chappel, who immediately defender the homophobe in the initial backlash, changed her mind after learning about Chik-Fil-A, their anti-GAY policies, the boycott, AND Reeves' happy choice to stab at the gays on social media. CC claimed she would try to educate her friend on why her actions were so mean and hurtful. Reeves deleted her Twitter then.

But hateful Reeves' gleeful bisexual defender can "separate the actor from the character" and enjoy her performances, because her anti-gay actions don't even affect him.

I have said this before, maybe even earlier on this thread. There used to be some youtube clips of Marlena and Don dealing with the death of their son to SIDs and the slow dissolution of their marriage. I was struck by how different her acting was - not to mention how much more real the writing was.

Do Sweeney and Dee get a long? It seems like when Sweeney does her return stints, she does not always have a ton of scenes with Marlena.

Soaps are so much work, especially now with the accelerated schedules and no rehearsing, I could see why Alphonso might decide to end it for good if she has enough money not to do the job. With the hours they work, that is a lot of time to be in an environment you don't enjoy, especially as the compensation goes down.

A few thoughts:

If you're going to call out Days for not being the show it was in the 60s and 70s, then you need to call out the entire genre. None of the soaps are what they were back then. The audience changed and the soaps had to change with them.

When Days did the GH ripoff in the 80s it was to revitalize a sinking show. When Jim Reilly turned Days around in the 90s, it was once again to revive a sinking show. In both cases, the show went the fantasy route to reengage audiences and it worked.

Some of you remind me of the people who complain about Sonny, Carly and Jason on GH. That's what the show is and has been for many years now and that's what it's going to be. When Ron Carlivati tried to move the show past that a fews ago, he got his ass handed to him and his walking papers.

Days is what it is and the very few people who want to watch Marlena and Don deal with a dead baby and a marriage falling apart is a very specific and very small demographic. Ask the fans over at Y&R, who are in near revolt, about realistic storytelling.

Now on to Deidre Hall. Let's not turn Kristian Alfonso being a shady cunt into Dee Hall's fault. Dee has a rabid fanbase and she doesn't apologize for that and I say good for her. First of all Genie Frances complains about every fucking thing. To hear her, everyone is out to get her. She's a soap star, she knows how fans can be. Who cares about Dee's crazy fans.

Now back to Alfonso, someone who is mad at the world because she could only generate chemistry with one person. Meanwhile Dee had three.

Dee adjusted with the times. She is still very good friends with Wayne Northrop and probably would have preferred working with Wayne, but she embraced John and Marlena because that's what you do. Is Dee a cunt? Who knows, but you don't get to Dee's level in this business without pissing some people off.

And Alison Sweeney, is she MAGA? Who knows and who cares. In case you didn't know, there are more MAGAs on soaps and more conservative republicans on those shows then there are not. Again, that's the way it is. If how Alison Sweeney votes ruins your enjoyment of the character, then that's on you. Jon Voight is a MAGA asshat, did it stop me from enjoying him on Ray Donovan. Nope.

Ironically, the character of Marlena was intended to only be on the show for 6-12 months.

Show brought on Marlena in 1976 to fill the psychiatrist role while they searched for an actor to play Laura Horton. Once that part was filled, show planned to ease Marlena off the canvas.

Susan Flannery had left the role of Laura in summer 1975 and Susan Oliver filled in for about 6 months until she had a movie commitment. So, show was searching for the right actress to play the Laura character who was considered the show's moral center. Eventually, they cast Rosemary Foresyth in the role, who was a good actress but really wasn't capable of carrying off the role of the show's moral center.

By that point, Marlena had become hugely popular thanks to her pairing with Jed Allan's Don Craig. So, show ended up having two psychiatrists for several years in the late 1970s, until they eventually wrote the Laura and Bill Horton characters out in early 1980.

R343, I agree. As long-lost twins go, Adrienne & Bonnie might be one of the most plausible and/or easily explained ever, given the Johnson family history. Duke Johnson was an identical twin...and a fucking evil sadist!

I would definitely buy that Duke forced Jo into some fucked-up Sophie's Choice, or took Bonnie (and gave her to an adoption agency) while Jo was asleep -- to punish her for hiding Steve & Billy from him (via adoption). Or, maybe Jo didn't even know Bonnie was alive. Duke cut a deal with a shady baby doctor (because he didn't want two mouths to feed), Jo was told one of the babies was stillborn when she regained consciousness, etc.

Is Jo still alive? I recall Jack mentioned her being at Adrienne's funeral during a confrontation with Steveano, but I don't know if she's been mentioned since. They could re-cast for a brief arc, or (more likely) have her die off-screen. Jack or Steve find a journal, a letter, whatever, among her things and learn that Adrienne had a twin.

Remember this is the woman who Ellen Holly won't even refer to by name.

Honestly though all Ben and Ciara ever do is lay in bed in their afterglow. Now that she's pregnant they spoon and hug her belly all day. You would think the daughter of Hope and Bo would have SOMETHING worthwhile to do. Find a career purpose. Would've been nice to see her become a no-nonsense corporate executive, like a Victoria (pun intended) Newman at Titan. And Ben was beginning to be a mechanic. I mean seriously, they're so one dimensional and monotonous. Even stiff doctor Kayla is going on an adventure with Steve.

EP Albert loves Ben and is one of the main factors why Ben has been at the forefront so much. Albert supposedly considers Ben/RSW to be the new leading man of Days almost in the same way Bo was in the past.

There was a rumor claiming that Vivian J. was told to act a certain way in her scenes by one of the show's producers,HW and Days acting coach.

Did Craig and Brady hook up before or after they shot that scene? The eggs weren't the only thing Brady looked like he wanted to devour at the table...

It would be funny if we heard Dr. Wesley's been prescribing Viagra to himself all these years in order to fuck Frau Nancy.

They should also think about revealing that Craig and Mike Horton hooked up when they were in med school together. Craig wanted to be a couple, but Mike broke things off. This is what led to the intense competition between the two men.

While a married man “discovering” his sexuality late in life is an important story to tell, I don’t like this story because of the couple involved. What made them a beloved couple that even those who didn’t watch the show were aware of, is that Nancy wasn’t a typical daytime leading lady. It undercuts the power of that message to later say he is gay. It is like saying “yeah, you’re fat of course the only man that would want you is a closest case wanting a beard.” Also, I remember when everyone was saying how fat Nancy was when she debuted, but thanks to Chrissy Metz she now only looks slightly chubby.

by Anonymousreply 514January 28, 2022 3:56 PM

R514 Except a gay man marrying a less conventionally desirable woman was the reality of that era. That does not invalidate Nancy and Craig relationship of the past at all like detractors say. Craig could have been quite content to be with Nancy because the other choice of being out was simply out of reach in those days. It's Frau fantasy to think every couple has "true and everlasting love" that will never change over a lifetime. Times change and people change. Now that being openly gay is a valid choice, it opens up other possibilities and Craig wants to experience being in love with a man. Of course, this choice will hurt Nancy, but that is the part of the emotion conflict in this coming out storyline.

exactly, I know someone who did marry a bigger woman because she was his best friend. They did have kids but he always knew he was gay and did come out in his 40s. He still loved his wife just not in that way. It was hard at first but after the shock, they were good

R524 Johnny has already been written to have a "devilish" side. Allie has told us over and over that Johnny is an incorrigible Lothario, so he would have eventually dumped Chanel when the next great love of his life comes along, and we have seen on that show that he has enough daddy issues for him to want to slab EJ in the back at some point. Maybe you mean these events should happen without a plot device like the Devil.

by Anonymousreply 561February 1, 2022 1:09 PM

I don't mind the Craig story, but I can kinda see why it upsets Craig-Nancy fans. .. Imagine what would be said, if we didn't see Will & Sonny for years and years, then suddenly they show up in Salem for no particular reason other than to have Sonny announce that he's been having an affair with the woman of his dreams, and he's now straight. .. He's never been happier. Add that to the fact this story seems to have just come out of nowhere and feels totally inserted. And would Days even be doing this, if the actor playing Craig weren't an out, gay man, IRL? Somehow I doubt that.

Writing-wise this would be far more compelling, if, say, we'd actually seen Craig and Nancy move back to Salem and during a six-month arc they'd shown Craig meet and begin to develop feelings for some guy, while initially trying to resist cheating on his wife and guiltily pulling away from his marriage when he does. Simply hearing about all this instead of seeing it happen is sub-par soap.

They should have watched the Danny Lomax story on Hollyoaks. Where Danny his wife and family move to Hollyoaks, and Danny begins a downlow affair with resident gay John Paul.

by Anonymousreply 563February 1, 2022 8:15 PM

I agree r562

The Craig-Nancy story would be better if they were already in town when Craig meets the other man. Or at least had been visiting town occassionally. I mean, the last time we saw Craig was something like 2013 and that was only for a couple of episodes. Last time we saw Nancy was in 2019 or 2020, and that too was just for a handful of episodes. Last time we saw them together on screen was probably 2005 when Brady and Chloe got married.

I mean, anyone who started watching in 2006 or later, Craig and Nancy have as much significance as Dr. Neil Curtis, who was last seen in 1992. Neil is the biological father of Sarah Horton.

I completely understand why the Fraus are upset. The show long established that Craig was devoted to Nancy and completely in love with her, despite her being overweight. That storyline gave many an overweight housewife hope about finding and keeping love.
