DAYS PreVUE: Week of November 21 Edition

Mitchell Haaseth/NBC

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – A look at what’s happening on “Days of Our Lives” during the week of November 21, 2011.

THIS WEEK ON: DAYS OF OUR LIVES

Will and Rafe find Johnny hiding in the Brady pub on Monday, November 21. Rafe and Johnny share a loving reunion. Unaware that Johnny has already been found, Nicole helps Brady and Madison put up posters for missing Johnny. Nicole defends EJ to Brady and confides in Madison about her confusing feelings for EJ. Nicole is elated when she finds out Johnny has been found, and goes to tell EJ. Madison and Brady share an embrace but Madison backs off yet again. Abigail and Austin bump into each other on Tuesday, November 22 and strike up an easy rapport despite their age difference. When Carrie texts to say she’ll come and meet Austin, Abby leaves but realizes she enjoyed her evening more than she expected. Jack visits Jennifer and tells her he understands her anger. He goes into more detail about his captivity and how it changed him. Jennifer is deeply affected by his honesty. Jack admits he needs help. Hope confronts Stefano about the phoenix paperweight on Wednesday, November 23. Stefano artfully sidesteps by paying tribute to Hope’s tenacious attitude and their shared history. He cautions Hope to let the secret of dead people lie because she might not like what she finds out. John and Marlena try to be optimistic, believing their love will see them through this nightmare as it always has. Carrie delivers a persuasive speech to the judge for leniency, but John refuses to speak on his own behalf. Marlena is crushed as John is led away to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

“Days of our Lives” will be pre-empted on Thursday, November 24, 2011 and Friday, November 25, 2011.

The Inside Story: Guilty Conscience

Chris Haston/NBC

Believing Johnny is dead, Sami and EJ come together in their grief and have animalistic sex to block out their despair on Monday, November 21. Will goes to the DiMera mansion and spies his mother and EJ making love. Stunned and disgusted over her betrayal of Rafe, Will backs away without making his presence known. Sami and EJ come to their senses and are horrified by what they have done.  Sami gets the message from Rafe that Johnny is alive. They both want to rush to see their son, but Sami warns EJ can’t come with her because no one can ever find out they had sex. Sami returns home and is reunited with Johnny. Sami apologizes to Rafe, who mistakenly assumes she’s referring to blaming him for Johnny’s disappearance. Will looks at his mother, bitter over her shameful behavior. Nicole arrives at the DiMera mansion where EJ’s still grappling with what happened with Sami.  He’s stunned when Nicole declares her love for him. In the aftermath of Johnny’s homecoming, Sami and EJ feel nothing but private guilt and self loathing on Tuesday, November 22. Unsettled Sami doesn’t know why Will’s acting the way he is. Rafe is protective of Sami when she becomes upset with Will’s questions.  Sami feels guiltier as Rafe showers her with love. Later, she can’t bear looking at herself in a mirror and breaks it. EJ is wracked with guilt especially now that Nicole has decided to give their relationship another chance. They go to the loft, where EJ is reunited with his son. Only Will knows why Sami and EJ are uneasy around each other but keeps mum.

A Closer Look: Thanksgiving in Salem

Jennifer, Jack, Abe, Lexie, Chad and Abigail gather at the pub to make Thanksgiving food boxes for the homeless on Wednesday, November 23. Abigail is pleased when Austin shows up without Carrie. After Abigail leads Chad to believe she’s preoccupied because her father is watching them, Chad appeals to Jack for a truce.  Jack shakes his hand, but will reserve judgment. Jack reveals he’s been offered a job teaching  journalism at Salem U.  Abigail isn’t sure she wants her father working on campus, but is more enthusiastic when she hears Austin has also been offered a job teaching forensic accounting.  Maggie brings Victor, Daniel and Melanie to her old kitchen to prepare Thanksgiving dinner. Daniel and Melanie are touched to be included, especially after Daniel discovers Maggie made a recipe his mother used to make. Maggie wants Daniel and Melanie to get tested to see if they are preconditioned to also get myasthenia gravis. Daniel talks to Melanie and Victor about his stalled relationship with Jennifer. Victor cautions all is fair in love and war.  Melanie admits to Daniel there is someone she likes (Chad) but it will never happen.



ABC

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Americans across the United States celebrate Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday of November each and every year – and then shop until they drop on the day after, Black Friday. Thanksgiving is the one holiday on the calender that can cause us to replicate a scene right out of a soap opera due to the potential conflict that is stored up in large family gatherings. Daytime viewers also know to expect some changes in the daytime schedule on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Soap Opera Network has gathered all the information fans of the five remaining dramas need to know about how their programs will be affected on Thanksgiving, November 24, and the day after, November 25, of 2011.

On Thursday, November 24, ABC Daytime, as usual, will show encore presentations of “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital.” The latter will re-air a rather feel good occasion, while the former went for drama. As always, ABC’s repeat airings are said to help define important moments in each soaps current storylines.

Disney/ABC Television Group

One Life to Live (Episode # 11,006; OAD: 9/2/11)
In this episode Viki tells Todd that Victor is dead and that the police are looking for him but Todd already knows. John tells Brody that Todd is not the only suspect in Victor’s murder. Natalie confronts Rex about having Gigi’s grave dug up but Rex assures her he knows that Gigi is really dead. In Kentucky, Kim tells the mystery person about Rex digging up Gigi’s grave. Jessica tells Clint that Natalie can’t try to keep Kim away from him anymore. Jessica insists nothing is going on between her and Ford but does say Ford kissed her. Cutter tells Aubrey that he has a legit job at the Minute Man Motel so he can prove to her that he can change. Cutter and Aubrey make love. Kim appears on Cutter’s doorstep. Rama tries to play matchmaker for Cristian and suggests that he and Jessica could get back together. Cristian arrives to see Jessica at Llanfair.

Disney/ABC Television Group

General Hospital (Episode # TBD; OAD: 9/22/11)
Jason and Sam go on a motorcycle ride and decide rather spontaneously to marry at a Chinese restaurant. They are pronounced husband and wife. Meanwhile, Franco sets malicious plans in motion. Unaware of the developments, Maxie and Spinelli troubleshoot wedding preparations. Dante proposes to Lulu.

ABC will not air “OLTL” and “GH” on Friday, November 25. Like in years past, college football will air in its place. This is a scheduled pre-emption, therefore viewers will not miss a single original airing of their favorite daytime drama. “OLTL” and”GH” will pick up from their Wednesday, November 23 episodes on Monday, November 28.

Craig Sjodin/ABC

If you’re in need of a ABC Daytime drama fix by this time, check out SOAPnet at 7:00 PM EST for the “Lucky Friday” marathon that centers around “GH’s” Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson) on Friday, November 25. In the five encore presentations chosen, we’ll watch a very young Lucky flee Port Charles after his parents are sent a lethal message (OAD: 11/1/93), discover Nikolas is his brother (OAD: 7/17/96), be held hostage by his father in the wake of a shocking revelation (OAD: 11/11/98), share a special moment with his mother, and later his entire family (4/15/99), and reveal to Elizabeth that their son is dead (3/21/11).

NBC will not air “Days of Our Lives” on Thursday, November 24 or Friday, November 25. Traditionally, “The National Dog Show” will air in its place on Thursday, November 24. “DAYS” has typically aired an original episode on the day following Thanksgiving, but that will no longer be the case. NBC recently inked a ten year deal (2011-2021) with the National Hockey League (NHL) in which the network has agreed to air a hockey game on the last Friday of each November. This year we’ll see the Boston Bruins take on the Detrot Red Wings in place of “DAYS” on Friday, November 25. These are scheduled pre-emptions, therefore viewers will not miss a single original airing of their favorite daytime drama. “DAYS” will pick up from its Wednesday, November 23 episode on Monday, November 28.

According to a CBS spokesperson, on both Thursday, November 24 and Friday, November 25, most markets will show encore presentations of “The Young and the Restless.” On Thursday, November 24, “Y&R” will re-air a New Year’s episode focusing on Billy (Billy Miller) from December 31, 2009. The West Coast – or rather those living in the Pacific Time Zone – will be treated to an NFL game featuring the Dallas Cowboys vs. the Miami Dolphins instead of this encore presentation. On Friday, November 25, “Y&R” will re-air the December 23, 2010 Christmas episode which features Victor (Eric Braeden). This episode is expected to air nation wide but will air a littler later than usual at 3 PM in the Pacific states due to NCAA Football. “The Bold and the Beautiful” will reportedly not air on both days. These are scheduled pre-emptions, therefore viewers will not miss a single original airing of their favorite daytime drama. “Y&R” and”B&B” will pick up from their Wednesday, November 23 episodes on Monday, November 28.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) – A look at what’s happening on “Days of Our Lives” during the week of November 14, 2011.

THIS WEEK ON: DAYS OF OUR LIVES

The search is on for a missing Johnny DiMera on Monday, November 14 as Sami blames John and EJ blames himself. Ashamed, John decides to plead guilty despite Marlena’s wishes. Jennifer feels guilty herself when Daniel tells her he saw her kissing Jack. On Tuesday, November 15, Brady is upset over his nephew’s disappearance and reassures Sami that he’s going to plaster Johnny’s photo on TV.  Madison offers Sami support. Brady appreciates her concern and later takes her in his arms when he finds her in tears over a missing Johnny. Jennifer comforts Sami and Sami is surprised when Kate also unexpectedly reaches out to her. Nicole helps EJ search for Johnny on Wednesday, November 16. Quinn shows up and offers help from old underworld connections. Nicole tries to protect EJ by warning off Quinn, but EJ accepts his help — he’ll do anything to bring his son back. Roman spots Quinn and is angry to see him back in Salem. Jack, still experiencing subtle symptoms of his PTSD, arrives at Jennifer’s, where she’s in the middle of trying to help with the search for Johnny.  She reacts strongly when Jack assumes they’re now back together after their bonding experience at the cabin. On Thursday, November 17, while the search for Johnny continues, Austin tells Bo he’s been working on a trace of Alice’s mystery money accounts. Hope and Bo fear Stefano is involved, despite his denials. Will is worried Sami won’t forgive John. Carrie tells John she’s working on a plea bargain off his insistence on a guilty plea but later, word arrives from a super-confident prosecution–no deal. On Friday, November 18, John decides he’ll still plead guilty to avoid a long, drawn out trial.  Carrie sets up the meeting, and they all head to the courthouse.  Once there, John pleads guilty and a devastated Marlena watches as he’s hauled off in cuffs.

The Inside Story: Blame and Search
Sami, Rafe and the rest of the family desperately search for Johnny on Monday, November 14. Nicole and EJ track down Sami, who breaks the news to them that Johnny disappeared amidst the chaotic aftermath of the shooting. EJ has choice words for Roman and Bo as he threatens to bring in his own people. Nicole, thinking of the election, convinces him to play by the rules. Sami goes ballistic and blames John. Sami’s tirade against John spills over to include Marlena. Rafe  tries to console his wife. Despite Nicole’s wishes, EJ calls in his own men to find his son. Bo and Roman learn the state police are in hot pursuit of the shooter and the perp is headed for the center of town. Sami and EJ confront the man who shot up the pub on Tuesday, November 15.  Sami fears for her son’s life, knowing the longer he’s missing, the worst the outcome could be. Kate questions EJ about Stefano’s possible involvement in John’s shooting. EJ denies Stefano was involved and blames the police and Abe for not having better security. Abe makes a statement about the shooting and Sami’s missing son. Lexie reaches out to comfort her brother. Roman, Rafe and EJ pursue a lead that a boy resembling Johnny was seen on a country road near a cabin, but later reveal to Sami that the lead didn’t pan out. None of them understand how Johnny could just vanish. On Wednesday, November 16, Sami, Rafe, Bo, Hope, Will and Gabi go to the loft to wait for news on Johnny. Will and Gabi try to keep Sami from losing her mind. Rafe’s frustration grows when he realizes he can’t do much to help with the search since he’s no longer on the force. John and Marlena visit Sami. Sami tells John that Johnny wouldn’t be missing if it weren’t for him and his trial.  When Marlena tries to step in, Sami turns all her emotional unraveling on her mother. Roman arrives with EJ and Rafe and reluctantly reveals a piece of a bloody shirt that’s just been found. Sami screams!

Chris Haston/NBC

A Closer Look: Grief Takes Over
An anguished night passes and there’s still no sign of Johnny on Thursday, November 17.  Sami lashes out at Rafe, blaming him for convincing her to take Johnny to see John in the first place. Rafe is wracked with guilt and doesn’t fight Sami’s assessment. Later, Bo and Hope arrive, having gotten news… the body of a child has been found.  Sami, devastated, prays it isn’t Johnny but fears those prayers will go unanswered. EJ is no less worried than Sami, having spent a sleepless, guilt-ridden night trying to crawl out of the dark place this news has deposited him.  Stefano tries to get his son to see reason but allows him to vent, knowing he needs it… and vows if Johnny is harmed, their family will have their vengeance. Full of agony, he stares at a picture of his little boy, unaware of the potentially crushing news Sami has just been delivered. Sami breaks down on Friday, November 18 fearing Johnny’s body was the one found dead. Bo, Hope and Rafe go to identify the body.  Meanwhile, Sami goes to EJ, who has heard the same news. They bond in their grief until they hear an erroneous media report that the body has been positively identified as Johnny. The two parents are destroyed. Rafe suddenly realizes Allie may be able to help them.

Justin Lubin/NBC

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — It was March of this year that word broke out that “Days of our Lives” was planning to have a major character come out of the closet. Almost immediately after the news broke out reports were flying that Will Horton, portrayed by Chandler Massey, would be the one to come out. Eight months since the news first leaked, the NBC Daytime soap has finally revealed that Will will in fact come to the realization that he is gay, but what does Massey think about portraying such a character and how has he managed to keep it such a secret for so long?

“I’m thrilled and honored,” said an energetic Massey on getting the chance to tackle such a topical issue as a teen coming out. “I was told about it in February and now I’m officially allowed to talk about it. I’m thrilled on two levels. It’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of a storyline that is so relevant like this storyline, which is underrepresented in daytime and I think in TV in general. It is a story that needs to be told. It is very powerful and I’m super honored to be a part of that,” the actor stated. “On a personal level it creates a creative challenge. As an actor, I couldn’t be happier with the stuff that I’ve been given and the writing for me just because I get to stretch. I get to grow. I get to really sink my teeth into something.”

In recent months, some of the most shocking headlines in newspapers and television news programming have surrounded teenagers committing suicide because they could no longer handle the pressure and taunting from peers who had constantly teased them and in some cases threatened their lives all because they happened to be different. With soap operas always known as being the most current form of scripted programming when it comes to social issues would it be too much of a stretch to expect “Days of our Lives” to deal with the the issue head on? “It is such a real and tragic issue in the world today. Personally, I would love for them to address that. The wonderful thing about today is there are so many programs like the Trevor Project and It Get’s Better, NOH8…all those programs that are reaching out to those kids who aren’t comfortable with who they are or maybe they are and other people aren’t comfortable or are imposing their hate on them. I think it is terrible. Life is too short for that kind of nonsense,” said Massey. “I personally would love it if they go in that direction. It’s so powerful and such a real problem today that if ‘DAYS’ can do that and do it really well and powerfully it could help people. In the end that’s what we want to do. We want to move people.”

Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes are two of the longest running current cast members left on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but you wouldn’t know it because they are barely on! Thankfully the network hosts its annual “A Day of Days” fan event where fans far and wide can come and meet their favorite stars and catch the rarest of glimpses of those not seen enough on screen at Universal Studios CityWalk in Hollywood, California. Considered one of “DAYS’” premiere couples with their portrayal of Doug and Julie Williams on the drama series, Seaforth Hayes and her husband sat down with Soap Opera Network to discuss fans, what has kept the show going for all these years and where they see things headed in the future and even a whopper surrounding the Horton clan’s near demise from the canvas.

“The amount of time we have with the fans is kind of limited because it’s a line for the autographs. The Q&A out in the open there at the end of the day is always hysterical. People saying ‘take your shirt off’ and the guys taking their shirts off, so everybody is happy but it’s not a profoundly intimate experience for the actors with the fans,” said Seaforth Hayes of the “Day of Days” festivities. “Oh, I think it is wonderful that we get to see the people that are that devoted that they will give up a Saturday morning or Saturday afternoon and come [here] to see us and talk to us and be with us. I think that is wonderful. Soap audiences are just different from any other audience. They are very involved, they are loyal and they are devoted. They just want to talk and it’s wonderful,” countered Hayes.
