THE MOMENT we fans of Days of Our Lives have been waiting for! All in the name of HORTON, the show bounces back like never before! How quick of a momentum swing in one minute and nineteen seconds. The official NBC promo for Days of Our Lives is out and it’s looking well and truly like the Salem of old! There’s the intrigue, the drama, the homecomings, the marriage proposal and the ode to the icons of daytime soap television. From what I have noticed, the characters look much more poised, no over the top acting and plenty of class. Whoever thought of the idea to have Victor splash his wedding proposal message to Maggie – which seems like pink neon lights is an absolute legend! Amazing costumes… How good to see the characters that made the show famous brought back to the forefront. Doug, Julie, Adrienne, Justin, Lexi and Abe… this is an iconic show about to turn the much awaited corner and finally bring classic soap back into our lounge rooms once again!
The detail put into the sets and lighting look tremendous. Looks like there was not a cent spared. Yes, that includes the amount of cream used on the cake that Jack Deveraux finally lands himself into. We get to wave at Carrie and Austin at the top of the balcony – much to Salem’s surprise, but the big one is Hope and Bo introducing the shows stalwarts Marlena and John as they make their long awaited return to Salem! It’s not all picture perfect in Salem, yes Stefano and Kate watch on as EJ announces to the towns citizens that he is running for Mayor, plus Sami is horrified when Rafe places John Black under arrest! The drama is back, so it’s looking like there is no bomb or massacre….yet, but just the clever script writing to showcase our much loved characters and the fine production and direction that this show deserves.
Welcome home DAYS.
