Eve coming back in the middle of this whole resurrection story makes me think Eve is going to be desperate to prove Paige is still alive too since Will seemingly is.
Yup. I'm convinced Paige will be back along with Will.

Poor Serena and the midwife won't fare so well, though.

Let's hope Rolf only brings important characters back to life ...
Even though she was kind of boring, I'm thinking that the granddaughter of Shane Donovan and the first cousin of John Black's grandson might be a bit important.

Besides, I thought it was a cop-out to kill Paige off. They should have just sent her off to Stanford. They is NO WAY that Shane and Kim would have missed their granddaughter's funeral. The only GOOD thing about it was that Paige's ghost made up with Eve and KDP's acting.
Actually, from the big confrontation scenes with JJ and Eve and going forward to Paige's death, I thought True was doing a MUCH better job with the vastly better material she was given. Paige became much more viable and interesting AFAIC, so much so that I'd be okay with her returning IF it meant decent storylines that include KDP.

Could KDP's return also mean that this mysterious doctor character (Rolf?) will bring Paige back to life as well as Will?

And if that's the case, what about Serena?

Hmm...

Who is KD?
Kassie DePaiva?

I mean, as others have pointed out, her presence at various events makes it seem obvious that she's back.
Yeah. I'm pretty sure end of the year is too far out.

Deja vu Dena strikes again... a plane full of Salemites crashes, stranding them on a deserted island. Only this time there won't be any of Alice's donuts.
I recall three of these sort of crashes - 1985, 2000, 2008. Were there others?
The first one was Oct/Nov 1984. I thought it was very well done, because there were high stakes and characters actually died. It was really the culmination of the Salem Slasher storyline, because Tony and Andre had a confrontation resulting in Andre's "death" and Stefano and Roman fought on the cliff resulting in Roman's "death." Of course, it was dramatic because at the time we thought Roman was truly dead. Daphne Dimera also died.

This go round... it seems like the crash is nothing more than a contrived story to cause Chad/Gabi angst. No showdowns, no deaths... just Chabi in a cave.

Um... no thanks!

I love both Brandon Barash and Rick Hearst. If they have to bring on another male Kiriakis, I think he would be a good fit. Of course I would love BB back at GH, but only Sonny is lucky enough to skate and be released from prison.
I am pretty sure all this talk is because GH is trimming it's cast and it is strongly rumore two are going, one in summer and other early fall. People are speculating who it could be.
Maura West is one name, Michael Easton & Rebecca Budig are as well, but there is also other names getting mentioned...

MW, ME & RB are all strong actors.. Perhaps one of the females could or would play that long lost Rafe love... Or a long lost Dimera female, even a Nicole recast .
Not sure who M.Easton would play, maybe Mike Horton or an older version of Phillip, EJ recast.

The one to keep an eye on I think is MW.. She followed some Days people a bit back. She has been rumored to be getting the ax on GH for sometime. She could even be done taping already.
Maura West is awfully good. I could definitely see her coming on as a Dimera, maybe a child of one of Stefano's brothers or yet another previously undiscovered Stefano progeny.

uhm Lars?
Well, he's way too young to be THAT Lars, not to mention there's no reason for Lars Englund to return to the canvas, since all the characters with whom he interacted are gone. Well, except for Hope, I guess.

Chad and Gabi are held at knifepoint by a thief.
Eli makes a difficult decision.
Theo blurts the truth to Ciara.
Kate is suspicious of Dario.
Man, that portrait always pissed me off. Sami and Kate were Dimeras by marriage, yet Stefano had NO photos of his deceased children on display in his home other than Lexi after she died. Renee, Megan, Benji... nowhere to be found. But of course, we get Sami and Kate, larger than life no less. :huh:

How close did Days get to bringing on Vanessa as Stefano's daughter in the early 1980s?

Was she actually mentioned on the show or just in magazines at the time?
I don't recall her being mentioned on the show, but I do remember at least one Voldy mention. The only reason I recall it is because I wrote a letter to Maggie DePriest and Sheri suggesting that Philece Sampler be brought back as Vanessa after Renee had been killed off. I received a nice hourglass postcard with a form letter thanking me for my correspondence. So much for my persuasive writing skills. :blulaugh:
I feel like I'm being dense and I should know this, but who's Vanessa?
In the early 80s, Voldy (and perhaps other soap mags) announced that Stefano's daughter Vanessa Dimera was being cast. The character never made it to the screen. There were also multiple references to Tony's "four brothers" and his motive for coming to Salem... to find suitable wives for all of them. At some point they stopped referencing other Dimera children, and Renee was revealed to be Stefano's daughter.

If I had to guess, I'd surmise that a head writer change caused the change in direction.

You know the show is bad when no one has even taken the time to comment that a picture of Melanie was posted.
Lol! I feel like it's treading on thin ice if her name is mentioned too often. Like Rumpelstiltskin, she may just pop up on the show again.

Jason47's Weekly Thread: Week of 5/15-5/21
Is there any hope that KDP will be coming back? At this point, I'd even be fine with True returning and Paige turning up alive (along with Will) if it means more Kassie on the show.

Curious to see how they bring Will back - hoping it makes sense & Sami's return is short-lived w/no other returns.
Let's hope RC is more creative than rehashing history. If Dena were staying, we'd have Andre orchestrating the Necktie Killer murders, using Ben as a pawn like he did when Marlena "murdered" half the town. Will, Serena and Paige would all be found alive, but Serena and Paige would be quickly ushered off canvas while Will stays. Then Ben would be released from prison since he had been brainwashed into committing the "murders."

Finally, Andre would exit once and for all, and Thaao would stay as Tony.

:blulaugh: :blulaugh:

I really think the show needs an evil female character - perhaps equivalent to Stefano in his heyday before the character was diluted. Perhaps something similar to Helena on GH where she tends to come and go.
It's a damn shame that they've killed off all the female Dimeras over the past three decades. Renee or Megan should be heading up the family now and either would fit that bill quite nicely (especially Renee). Of course, Kristen is probably still alive, but her return would be contingent on Eileen's availability and willingness.

Kate just doesn't cut it. I've been over her for about the past 8 years.

JJ races to save Lani from a life-threatening situation.
Rafe brings Hope along to the Hernandez family lunch.
Julie and Gabi clash.

Missy is so beautiful here.

I'd like a Billy Warlock return, even if only for a visit. As long as it does NOT mean a Max return. He can stay gone.

JOAN COLLINS, PATRICK DUFFY, MORGAN FAIRCHILD, DONNA MILLS...WHICH ONE OF THESE ACTING VETS WILL APPEAR ON "DAYS OF OUR LIVES" THIS SUMMER??

Posted Image

"Days of Our Lives" fans will be welcoming one of these acting vets to the show, and it's not just for a cameo appearance.


That's a lot of the 1980's.

So, Jason, are you going to cut it down to three this week for us?

Or are we getting an official announcement from DAYS soon?
The only one that doesn't excite me is Morgan. So of course, it's going to be her.

My dream would be for Joan Collins as Shane's mother. :$

-Nicole is thrown by a surprise visit at the villa.


God I wish that was Serena! But I'm imagine that it's Eric.
Well, if they end up resurrecting Will in the form of Chandler Massey, there's always the chance that Serena and Paige are alive as well. Let's face it, Marlena murdered half of Salem and they were all alive, so it's not so far fetched. Andre has been holding them captive in a new Dimera mansion secret room. :blulaugh:

I'd still rather have MA return as Sarah Horton and for Eric to freak out about how much she resembles Serena. With Arianne/Nicole leaving the show, I'd be fine with MA and GV paired up. I thought they had chemistry.
