40 December 27th, 2015 DAYS Rings In the New Year With A Car Crash and A Paternity Revealed!

Courtesy/NBC

The countdown begins to a new year of shocking twists that will give us something to scream about!  That’s what NBC is teasing in their latest promo!

New Year’s eve in Salem doesn’t look like it’s going to be a happy one for everyone.  In fact, it looks down right deadly.   First, Chad (Billy Flynn) and Belle (Martha Madison) look to be hitting the sheets, but can Abby (Kate Mansi) armed with information stop this dangerous liasion?

In the latest promo,  Abby will finally learn that her baby daddy is Chad, not serial killer Ben (Rob Scott Wilson).  Can Abby get through to Chad in time and let him know the good news about baby Thomas? Will the brainwashed DiMera even care at this point?

And in the mother of all car crashes, look for some major Salemites to end up on one fateful situation.  Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) is one of them, who screams as she about to be in the middle of it.   DAYS fans knew this day was coming as we prepare to say goodbye to a long-running cast member.   Will it turn out to be the one everyone is suspecting?

Watch the final promo of 2015 for DAYS after the jump, and then let us know what you think will happen when the smoke clears from New Years Eve for your favorite characters!

    I really enjoyed today’s episode. Finally, some suspense. I think the baby storyline intermingled with Chad’s, is bringing it for me.

    CeeCee replied

    Oh, my gosh, Jimmy. What a coincidence. My nine-year old niece LOVES Days. She said that Caroline loses her mind and believes that Shawn is really alive and he and Caroline are having a baby. She has no clue that it is biologically impossible for Caroline to have a baby at her age…or it it? It’s Days….anything can happen.

    Caroline is on a soap where the towns top psychiatrist Dr, Marlena Evans was once possessed by the devil so anything is possible…lol

    A promising promo!

    A little romance…Steve & Kayla, but is Ava a threat?
    A revelation…Thomas Jack is not Ben’s baby, but does that really mean Chad is the father?
    A celebration…The New Year’s Eve party/Basic Black fashion show, but fun for all?
    A temptation…Belle and Chad, but will they go all the way?
    A car accident…Who lives and who dies and who will make up lies?

    DAYS is delivering daring and dangerous daytime drama!!!!!

    Hi su0000!

    I’m happy with DAYS’ writing, but do realize alot of people see nothing but doom and gloom. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    GH will pick up.

    CeeCee replied

    I always knew the baby was Chad’s. But, golly gee, 4ever, I love the way you think! Is Chad the father? Isn’t that interesting! Wow!!

    I hope Chad and Belle do not go at it. I do believe Chad is playing a game. Not brainwashed at all. Belle is soooo insipid, I don’t wish her upon anyone….not that Abby is my favorite either, but I am starting to tolerate her. If only she would stop blowing like a fish.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

    Happy New Year to you too, CeeCee!

    Several months back, many posters (including me) at other sites and this site suggested that once EJ died, sperm (which can live a few hours after it’s host dies) of his was saved and Abby was inseminated several months later on the night she slept with Chad.

    Would that be too much for Chabby/DAYS fans?

    A confirmation of Ben not being the father is not a confirmation of Chad being the father, especially when the DiMera family is involved. You must remember Kristen visiting EJ’s body in the morgue?

    CeeCee replied

    @4ever.
    Absolutely, 4ever…..everything and anything IS possible….especially when you put it so eloquently.

    Days is top-notch right now. But at the rate they’re killing off characters, there will be no one left by the end of 2016. Ha!

    Hi Sward81333!

    They can always reanimate and start the process all over again!

    Do you live in Slick Rock, Colorado (zip code 81333)?

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Sward,
    Speaking of killing off characters, either Eric or Brady will be saved. How do they know Daniel’s heart will even be a match for either? However….yes, however…LOL. What if George Jonas was not really Daniel’s father? What if Daniel is Victor’s son by some Days’ miracle? ( which happens all the time). This would mean that Daniel is Brady’s uncle, and VOILA’, they share DNA and they are a match. Maggie’s dilemma is solved.
    What do you think, oh mighty Jimmy H? Good one?

    All days knows how to do is kill off fan favorites. I may exit the show again; came back for Peter but nothing is keeping me interested except a bunch of recasts and poor acting (teens!). I dont get the brady/theresa thing either. Her voice is grating!!

    Days has become such a dark and sad show with all these deaths..I thought with the 50 anniversary and new writing regime it will get better but it’s worse for wear..I am just glancing and fast forwarding..so depressing to see the show..No comedy relief, no romance and no interactions between characters that have chemistry with each other!

    Hello, Mo, my friend.
    I think Chad is hoooot. Belle is nooooot!!!! The woman is not one bit pretty, as some seems to think. Not a true beauty. Thin lips and huge forehead. I know, I know, I’m being catty. But, since we’re on the subject…..However, looks are not always necessarily the thing. Granted, we are, as a rule, firstly attracted to the physical image, but when we get to know the person, oftentimes, the personality takes over and looks, good or bad, fade away. Billy Flynn is just naturally sexy. He may not have the chiseled Adonis-like look, by, he embodies manliness, virility and masculinity all into one. Belle ( don’t know the actress’ name) is a very insipid actress. I do not find her attractive; and her blah-blah personality does not compensate for her lack of good looks. I am not saying I’m right. It is just my opinion. Isn’t it amazing and refreshing how we all have different points of view? Later.

    Chrystie_Delancey replied

    Once again, CeeCee, you took the words out of my mouth.

    What does it for me with Billy Flynn is that he is charismatic. He CAN act. He doesn’t need to be some pretty boy that just struts around with his shirt off. At least for me, that does not do it. I like an actor that can play both drama and comedy and Billy has it in SPADES! That man is going to be very successful outside of soaps some day. Not to mention that he is hilarious on Instagram. He is the type of guy (like Timothy Olyphant, in my opinion) that you would just love to sit down and have a meal with. So many people do not have a sense of humor these days and it is so refreshing to see that in an actor and character.

    I didn’t like the character of Abby for Chad for the longest time, but somewhere when Ben kidnapped her and she was crying for her mom (while giving birth) she grew on me. Ben was boring as all get out until he became crazy – because it wasn’t about him taking his shirt off every other scene. He actually had something to say.

    Yeah, Belle is very plain Jane. A smile does wonders for someone and I haven’t seen her do it much.

    Mo replied

    When I said I didn’t like Ashlyn Pierce’s looks (I think that’s her name, Aly on B&B) someone called me out for being shallow. Whatever. Everyone has a different opinion and it’s fine. I like Martha Madison (Belle), but I am not really loving Belle 2015/2016. I have noticed this time around that Martha does have a large forehead. I think bangs might be a better look for her. I’m also concerned about Belle dating Chad. Chad is Will’s age. Will was her nephew. Therefore, Chad is her nephew. LOL I don’t find Billy Flynn (Chad) attractive at all. I hope that the writers improve Belle. She seems to have lost her mojo. I hope she finds it soon. And I also hope Philip gets a haircut!

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Mo.
    I would never, ever call you out. I like you too much. Besides, I am the queen of criticism. You offered your opinion. To a certain degree I agreed with you. Billy Flynn is not your typical looker…but, man, oh, man…he is SEXY..hot, hot , hot. He is a turn-on.
    I’m with you with Belle; I do not like the character one bit. In fact, mostly has to do with this revenge sex thing. Why, why? I ask. So divorce papers have been filed. Does that mean one must go out and share fluids with someone she barely knows? All’s well, my friend.

    This show is misery on top of misery and boring.

    Yes, clh. I will add ‘senseless’ to that. Especially the Andre/Stefano relationship. What a looney-tune Andre is. So irritating to me because I love Thaao. Another actor being used as a patsy.
    I think Andre is slowly poisoning Stefano….that could be the murder? Possibly?

    I think DOOL needs to slow the pacing down. It seems the most interesting stories happen and then there is not an emotional fallout that follows (Bo’s death being an exception).

    I am still frustrated that Ben left the show so quickly after Abby was rescued. It would have been interesting to see his character realize the mistakes he had made, have more of a meltdown, be shipped off to a sanitarium, etc.

    It was not evident that Kate or Marlena had just lost their grandson two months before during the Christmas episodes. Marlena is consumed with John’s past (again?) and Kate continues to make yet another mistake with a man that deserted not one, but two families. Did she not learn anything from her relationship with Clyde?

    I know the show tapes six months in advance, but I hope we do not EVER have to endure another period like the elephant statue storyline again. When something isn’t working, don’t force it on the audience. So far, the youth storylines are painful to watch. It seems Ciera is the only one of the characters that has had more than 5-6 lines per episode. Joey and Chase look like they are bored and brooding all of the time. Theo has not had enough lines for us to even have an opinion. Claire might grow on us, but if saddled with the aforementioned newbies, it might spell doom. Lastly, we would care more about Belle if the actress smiled more. She looks mad and angry all the time. We remember Belle and Shawn as a sweet couple, not at all what Martha Madison is portraying. Hopefully, that will change when Shawn gets back to Salem.

    It appears that Daniel will die this week on the show. If Shawn Christian would have been on the show more in the past three months, the audience might care more. Now, it seems like he has already left the show. Since another character is being killed off, let Maggie hit the bottle again (although it appears Eric will be doing the same) and let a character’s death mean something more than a week of grieving and then on to the next storyline.

    Speaking of Daniel, it is hard to be invested in a storyline when you know the actors are leaving the show. Every time Nicole and Daniel are on, I usually fast forward through it. Same with Eve.

    The reveal of Abigail’s baby paternity seems very rushed. Where is the long-term fallout and wait? Let Abby and Ben have some happiness and then let them discover that Thomas is Chad’s (although I think it could be EJ’s).

    Mo replied

    I agree with a lot of what you wrote.

    I’m not loving Belle’s incarnation and her having cheated on Shawn. It’s an excuse so Belle can dally with Chad, but I don’t buy Belle as a cheater. What happened to make her one?

    The paternity reveal does seem to be happening too fast. I’m surprised it’s coming out now, but okay.

    nuCiara is awful.

    The caroling was awful. JJ’s and Claire’s duet was not good–sounded like it wasn’t rehearsed so guess I should say it met requirements. I like the actress Claire, but still can’t get that Claire is this teenager.

    Don’t like all the killing/dying. Write people off. Send them away. Or recast. Recast Daniel is the actor wants to leave and you can’t find a reasonable story to explain his absence.

    And who is this Fynn? What’s the point of him besides promoting the show in Australia with a casting stunt?

    Eric has not been given decent story since he left the priesthood. Vaughn’s portrayal of Eric has always been boring. This was okay when he was a priest. I’m not sad to see Vaughn go.

    I hope Stefano is not killed off.

    Not happy with Hope’s vigilantism. And is she going to court to adopt Chase? Has anyone told Chase that his dad didn’t actually kill someone? Why isn’t Chase in counseling? Why isn’t half the town in counseling with Marlena?

    Reply

    Susan replied

    I understand Hope’s vigilantism and I would gladly stand right beside her. Her husband Bo was kidnapped then held and tortured for three years. Bo died of a brain tumour that MIGHT have been operable had he gotten the help needed. So yes, I ‘m looking forward to Hope going postal on who ever is responsible.

    Don’t forget Belle cheated on Shawn. with Phillip years before. Women cheat for both physical and emotional reasons. If a woman is unhappy in her marriage then she is more than likely to cheat on her husband. Belle may have felt that she had lost Shawn’s attention and that he no longer wanted her. A woman who does not feel valued by her husband will cheat. But it doesn’t mean that the she wants a divorce. Which is why, I think, that Belle was so sad when she got those divorce papers/ I think deep down Belle hoped that Shawn would not only forgive her but also fight to keep his marriage.

    The killing/dying is Ted Corday’s way of making sure these people never return to DOOL in the future. If a character is sent way then there will always be the possibility that each can be recast. I think that Corday is catering to the demands put down by NBC. That is clean house; lower the daily operating costs.

    I don’t buy Chad as some sexpot hot irresistible guy. The actor is not handsome IMO. No wonder Belle isn’t interested. That said, I would like to see him back with Abby. I still don’t like Billy as Chad and wish they would recast, but it seems I am in the minority with this opinion. At least he can act, unlike nuCiara.

    CeeCee replied

    Yup. I love this couple. She’s a beauty. Steve has charisma himself even with his gruff manner.

    Words no contented soap actor wants to see in their script ” Life is perfect” or ” I have never been this happy”. Before the age of spoilers these words were a sure sign your character was about to meet their Maker. And sure enough on Dec 31 episode Daniel said words like that to Brady while in the car– had to laugh even if I knew didn’t know this was coming, I would have known by those words alone Daniel was going to die in that crash.

    I can’t say I will miss the character. He hasn’t been on for a while and I hardly noticed, but still not looking forward to another round of grieving, another funeral in fake leaf park and poor Nicole getting her heart broken once again.

    Dark DAYS is a hit with me. I love these dark stories. Romance is mush. The show is going to wind down over the next 9 months more than likely, so I’d rather see the dark drama while it’s on air vs some crappy romance.
