It seems like one memorial service after the next, these days on "Days of our Lives." First, Will Horton (Guy Wilson) was murdered. Then, Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) succumbed to a brain tumor. Then, Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) was killed in a car crash, followed by Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) being shot to death by Hope.
He took three bullets square in the chest, collapsed in a chair, and was pronounced dead by Rafe (Galen Gering). The Phoenix, as portrayed by Joseph Mascolo, appears to be done for good, this time around, with no chance of ever rising again. Did "Days of our Lives" make a huge mistake killing off Stefano?
Since stepping into Salem earlier this September, “Days of our Lives’” Chad has been trying to prove that he’s now a force to be reckoned with. And as viewers have slowly but surely seen, he’s well on his way to living up to the last name he shares with dad Stefano (<strong>Joseph Mascolo</strong>) and brother EJ (<strong>James Scott</strong>).
If you’re one of the fans who thought that “Days of our Lives’” Clyde (<strong>James Read</strong>) would swoop into Salem, stir up trouble for Ben (<strong>Robert Scott Wilson</strong>) and Jordan (<strong>Chrishell Stause</strong>), and then get the heck out of dodge, think again: He’s playing with the big boys now, and he’s here to stay!
It's hard enough keeping a good man down, but try keeping a bad man down. It's impossible, as proven by “Days of our Lives” Stefano DiMera. Though the hits keep on coming for the patriarch, he’ll make like <strong>Sia</strong> and remain bulletproof, nothing to lose, as they fire away, fire away. And his portrayer, <strong>Joseph Mascolo</strong>, seems to share the cavalier attitude — at least when it comes to certain aspects of the storyline that ushered <strong>James Scott</strong>’s EJ off the canvas and <strong>Billy Flynn</strong>’s version of Chad onto the screen.
“Days of our Lives” doesn’t have to roll out its own red carpet for its upcoming 50th anniversary — the Hollywood Christmas Parade is doing it, instead! The grand holiday event will be honoring the long-running NBC soap opera with a special commemoration on <strong>Sunday, November 30</strong>!
A deafening shot rang out on Friday’s episode of “Days of our Lives,” but the piercing blast wasn’t able to drown out cries from fans who realized that the bullet probably spelled the end of EJ (<strong>James Scott</strong>). And once the howling began — onscreen and off — it built into a frenzy leading up to the character’s final moments in Salem, which played out on today’s episode. But just how powerful were the scenes, which seemingly put the nail in the coffin for the relationship between EJ and Sami (<strong>Alison Sweeney</strong>), as well? And was the story the best way for Scott’s alter ego to be written off the canvas?
Today marks the end of a four-year chapter for “Days of our Lives” fan favorite Casey Deidrick (Chad DiMera), who entered Salem as Will’s (Chandler Massey’s) hated rival back in 2009 and is now exiting the canvas as a much-loved and integral character, son of Stefano (Joseph Mascolo). In honor of the occasion, Soap Opera Network spoke with Deidrick’s onscreen love, Kate Mansi (Abigail), who tearfully recalls taping her final scene with Deidrick and opens up about how she truly feels about the star’s exit!
In a posting last week on its Facebook page, shortly after word that the Supreme Court of the United States had found the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, the NOH8 campaign displayed a photo compilation of "Days of our Lives" cast members posing in support of the charitable organization whose mission is "to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest." The photo included actors Blake Berris, Eileen Davidson, Greg Vaughan, Kristian Alfonso, Bill Hayes, Lauren Koslow, Deidre Hall, Suzanne Rogers, Freddie Smith, Joseph Mascolo, Nathan Owens, Kate Mansi and Galen Gering, among others.
Will fans of same sex pairings finally get a true gay storyline on "Days of our Lives?" That's where it looks to be headed as Entertainment Weekly's always spot on Lynette Rice revealed in a piece posted on Inside TV that she's hearing the soap "may involve a current cast member [in a gay storyline] hooking up with someone new."
Get ready "Days of our Lives" fans, the NBC soap opera is gearing up for the networks coverage of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games and they don't want you to miss out on all the action, intrigue and romance that daytime's sexiest soap has to offer.
