On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) had a major showdown with Marlena (Deidre Hall)! After threatening to shoot the good doc, Kristen beginning to have one of her emotional meltdown tells Marlena to shoot her instead! Later, after Marlena puts the gun away, that sets the stage for one of the most memorable spewing of words between enemies we have seen in soaps, and we loved every delicious minute of it!
Eileen Davidson will leave a big gaping whole on the canvas in Salem, when we see her, and Kristen, depart the series shortly on upcoming episodes! But once again, Eileen played Kristen to the hilt! Spewing her hatred of Marlena to her face! When Marlena comes to the realization that Kristen got Eric (Greg Vaughan) in bed as a vendetta against her, she is rocked to the core.
Kristen reveals her plan on how she wanted to destroy Marlena with her seeing that her priestly son had hot sex with the woman Marlena loathes most in the world! Kristen tells her she wanted to see her face and then walk away laughing at her! Only, Marlena ruined everything was once again, since Kristen changed her mind about her plan once Brady and her rekindled their relationship! Marlena then goes for the jugular with Kristen and tells her to get out of her wedding dress because Brady is never coming back for her. And that the whole world will know what she really did to Eric! Her son would never willingly sleep with her! Once Marlena leaves, Kristen losses it and breaks her ring from Brady!
Kudos to Eileen Davidson for making Kristen pathetic and psychotic and for delivering in the pay-off fans have wanted to see! Kristen is getting her comeuppance for her crimes against Eric, although not through a judicial system, but the systemic ruination of her tragic life! And there is more to come on today’s episode! Eric is about to confront Kristen! And finally also a shout-out to Deidre Hall, for showing Marlena’s strength in the key scenes and going toe to toe with Davidson!
Watch yesterday’s key scenes after the jump between Kristen and Marlena and Eric and Brady! Then, let us know what you thought of Eileen’s performance?
