Marlena's Possession To Be Rebroadcast for Halloween
Posted Friday, October 05, 2007 8:50:18 PM


SOAPnet will re-broadcast three episodes from 1995 when Marlena's soul was taken over by the devil. What's, um, possessed them to do that? It's all part of a Halloween mini-marathon airing later this month on the all-soaps cable channel.


Celebrate Halloween with one of the most talked about storylines in soap opera history -- the possession of Days of our Lives' Marlena Evans. This Halloween, SOAPnet, the all-soaps cable channel, will air a mini-marathon of three vintage DAYS episodes from 1995 that were part of daytime's answer to the motion picture thriller, "The Exorcist." These three episodes are sure to put a chill into your regular soap viewing.


For long-time Days of our Lives fans, this is a chance to relive episodes from over 12 years ago. For newer DAYS viewers or soap fans that have never had a chance to see the much talked about demonic possession episodes, here's your chance to find out what every was (and, sometimes, still is) talking about.


9:00pm: Episode #7,528
Original Airdate: May 12th, 1995
Kristen is on to Marlena. Meanwhile, Marlena morphs into a panther and has a swarm of bees attack Shawn.


10:00pm: Epsode #7,531
Original Airdate: May 17th, 1995
Marlena's loved ones see her levitate. When they try to talk to her, she responds as the devil. Everyone decides that it's time to perform an exorcism.


11:00pm: Episode #7,570
Original Airdate: July 18th, 1995
While Marlena's friends and family thinks she's dead, John fights the devil for Marlena's soul.


The marathon airs October 28th on SOAPnet beginning at 9:00pm Eastern and Pacific. Check your local listings for the channel in your area.

OMFG. YES.

I have the 1995 episode on TIVO from You've Got A Mother Thing Coming marathon from May. I watch it on occasion, and it is SO good. The dark lighting, the music, the acting, just the look, which the show is starting to get back, is so good.

The pacing was so different then too. Every week had an arc, and every episode had an arc. I really really can't wait for this!

AWESOME!! I'll definitely be recording this. I remember IMA and myself going crazy over the 1995 episode they played on SoapNet several months back, LoL. IMA couldn't believe how much better the show was back then -- she had forgotten just HOW GOOD it was! LoL

Yes Kenny! And I still stand by that sentiment. It wasn't just every week or every episode had a cliffhanger to it back then, but every act had one before the commercial break, so it all flowed together so beautifully and the sets and everything else were just so much better. As much as I am psyched to see these great Marlena scenes from the possession story in this new marathon, quite honestly I also can't wait to see what other stuff may be in them with Vivian or the Carrie/Austin/Sami/Lucas quad that I loved back then too.

I'm curious though about the last epi if that is going to be the episode where John is alone with Marlena in the morgue. It's scary how vividly I remember that scene and I want to see if it lives up to my memories of it.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I can't wait.

Wow! Thank you! This was my all time favorite soap story. I hope the shows they air are the ones that show the magnitude of John and Marlena's love and friendship. :hail: :D

Please, GOD, someone help out the non-SoapNet people. Get it on mininova or some such.

These are episodes NO soap fan should miss, BY GOD.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I can't wait.

Remember how we were so shocked at how much BIGGER Sami's apartment was back then? Of course, Sami didn't live there then, but it was the same set/layout and Carrie/Billie lived there, I believe. Remember how HUGE it was?! LoL It made the set today look like a little child's dollhouse.

And the bedroom of the Kiriakis Mansion that Vivian was laying down in. What I remember most is the huge windows and the giant drapes that made the whole room seem expansive and RICH.

Anyway, I watched the morgue fight scenes on YouTube recently and I can tell you, they're superb. It's really creepy to watch, because at that point in the story, Marlena's body is completely dead and John is quite literally fighting a corpse. It just had such a DEAD, morbid feel to it.
