31 June 3rd, 2015 DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Melanie and Brady Share Heart-tugging Goodbye As Molly Burnett Exits NBC Soap Opera!

Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, pulled at the heartstrings as Melanie (Molly Burnett) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) shared an emotional farewell, after Melanie is basically forced to leave Salem thanks to Theresa (Jen Lilley) and wanting to give Brady time with his newly found son, Tate.

The final moments were beautifully played by Daytime Emmy winner Eric Martsolf and Molly Burnett, who wrapped up her on-screen return after a six-month return to the NBC soap opera. Throughout the rest of the episode, Melanie shed some tears saying goodbye to her father Daniel (Shawn Christian), Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and grandmother Maggie (Suzanne Rogers).

Burnett tweeted to all her fans and followers at the conclusion of yesterday’s DAYS episode: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me come into your living rooms and cause a little trouble the last 6 months. Days will always be my first home and I’m so thankful for everyone there, and all of you!! And I can’t wait to share what’s next!”

What did you think of the final scenes between Melanie and Brady? Sad to see that Molly Burnett go? Of course, since DAYS tapes six months ahead, Burnett wrapped at DAYS some time ago.  Share your thoughts below!

    I agree with you Mo, Molly Burnett is a wonderful actress. I am going to miss her so much. Molly Burnett only signed a 6 month contract. Don’t worry Mo, she will be back in the future.

    I love the actress and character, but these scenes were ridiculous and poorly written. The premise was foolish and all the emotions drug on and on throughout endless goodbyes.

    I agree, I saw her scenes with Brady yesterday and I thought “didn’t she leave Friday?”

    I agree with Anne, in all actuality no one is so “self-sacrificing” that they would relinquish Brady so easily or any beloved person. There were ways that they could have worked out visitation rights and all that jazz. Theresa isn’t really “holding all the cards” unless they allow her to.

    I quite frankly don’t get the excitement over the Melanie character. She is quirky and not always in a good way. I have to say she acted the hell out of the goodbye scenes but I just don’t get the hoopla over her. Very glad they are moving on without her and now I get to dance in aerobic bliss over the departure of Serena and Xander. I can’t wait for both of those pouty petes to leave the scenery. Can they please take whiny crybaby Eric with them? Everytime I see him I can hear him as a child telling mommy Marlena, “he tried to hurt me mommy”….Marlena should have toughened him up and smacked him around a bit like Christina Crawford. Never have I met a more whiny man. Nicole is more of a man than Eric Brady. I keep hoping some crazy quilt in Salem will accidentally take him out. C’mon Stefano, do Salem a favor and get your revenge on Marlena with throwing Eric out of a window…please???!!!!!

    I am going to miss Melanie even though she often needed to center herself so she wasn’t coming off so flakey, and who I always wanted to sit her down and brush her hair. Melanie was good FOR Brady, something the self-destructive Theresa is not, and without a personality/soul transplant never will be.

    I wish the actress the best, but damn but I wish she wasn’t leaving the show.

    Very well said. I wish Melanie had recorded her final conversation with Theresa so that Brady could use it in his fight for custody of Tate. Theresa is nothing but a selfish, hateful user. I pity baby Tate’s future with her.

    Best of luck to Molly Burnett.

    I really like Molly and on occasion Melanie, but this return has been awful! From lame, uninspired and contrived start to sappy, forced and rushed middle (her romance with Brady that never should have been) to ridiculous and unbelievable finish. She should have been around to cause trouble and raise a little hell post Sami exit, not stick her nose in everyone’s business and develop an unrealistic romance with a totally mismatched Brady. It was good she helped move the Kristen story along even while the actress wasn’t on screen, but anyone could have done that. I have been very disappointed and have wanted her to leave with the new writers even before I knew she would be with the current ones.

    I am going to miss Melanie (and Molly). Yes, she had a loosey, goosey acting style that seemed to make audiences choose sides, but I actually loved it. It felt sort of like she was doing improv most of the time, which is sometimes a relief with some of her co-workers line readings. And while I wasn’t initially on board with her relationship with Brady, I came to really like it and wished there would have been more time to explore it.

    Me too, though if it was not meant to be with Brady, I would have liked to seen her with Chad.

    Abigail is soooooooooooooooo boring. (This) Chad and Melanie could have been fun.

    Melanie is good for Brady and vice versa. These last few months are the most I have enjoyed Melanie because of her relationship with Brady. She is also Theresa’s “six bit change” (foil) like no other. The acting chemistry between Molly and Jen Lilly is as good as the chemistry between Molly and Eric Martsolf. The Melanie-Brady-Theresa story is wired for old school drama that can last for years to come. I hope the Days producers and writers hold on to it because this storyline is a winner like we haven’t seen on Days in a long time!

    Melanie grew on me over time. At first I couldn’t grasp who she was and what she was about. Then I got her as time went on. I thought she was pretty damn cool. I wish she hadn’t left days as her character added this different personality that we never see in anyone else. Silly,fun and was the best for Brady! I’m sick of Theresa and hope she gets what she deserves. Kinda sounded like victor had something up his sleeve?

    I love Molly but hated the ludicrous story ending. And once again Brady has lost a love for the 100th time…I’m tired of it. And if for some reason they have Brady forgive and fall in love with Theresa I’ll stop watching the show.

    Molly has created a unique character on DOOL. I will miss the quirky tenderness of Melanie Jonas. Hopefully, the actress and character will return in the near future. Days needs compelling female characters in her age range. Best wishes Molly!

    I have never really seen the “it” factor in this character-she’s too over the top in her attempts to be cute, and cuddly which I think comes across as extremely immature. There’s no complexity; and I think that her younger brother Parker has more depth and maturity. The Brady/Melanie “romance” fell lackluster and my only hope is that Melanie will take that spoiled rotten, narcissistic, nasty Theresa with her and drop her off the face of the Earth-UGH! Oh, and nuWill too. Did anyone else want to vomit during Sonny and Will’s home therapy session scenes-about Sonny’s Taylor Swift shirt and Will-once again, making himself appear as the victim-whining about how Sonny loves Paul…Please Melanie, take Will with you too-no further explanation needed for what happened to this character. Good grief. Sorry to sound like a negative sounding board, but I am so disgruntled over this show-the writing, mostly.
    Oh, and if I were John or Marlena-I would tell Paul and Will to mind their own business about what happened between them (their love affair) well over two decades ago (?)-completely different scenario than a cheap romp in a hotel room. Marlena thought that John was Roman for a good length of time. I digress…

    Its unfortunate that “Melanie’s” character has to leave. It was finally great to see Brady with someone good. Hopefully she will be asked to return.
