Molly Burnett is in the news this weekend! First, it appears that Burnett is set to return again as Melanie Jonas on Days of our Lives this January.

According to a report from Jason47.com, “Burnett’s length of stay is not yet announced. Will she be around for an extended stay, or to just help wrap up the Daniel storyline?”

As DAYS fans know, it has been bantered about that Shawn Christian (Daniel) is exiting the series shortly, and since Melanie plays his on-screen daughter it makes sense she may be back for his swan song.

In addition, Molly is also appearing on tonight’s (Dec 20) episode of CSI: Cyber reprising her role of Nina Moore!  In the episode which airs on CBS (9PMET/PT)  they tease: After an innocent bystander is killed when dozens of ATMs suddenly spew money into the street, the Cyber team investigates the bank heist that is orchestrated by a real-life cyber Robin Hood.

So, glad to hear Molly is coming back to DAYS?  Will it be a short visit, or a longer one?  Share your thoughts below!

    Melanie returns to attend Dr. Dans funeral after he is killed by a drunk driving Erik…when Erik is only given probation, a vengeful Melanie goes beserk and attempts to shoot Erik but by mistake accidentally shoots her grandma Maggie who is temporarily paralyzed…Melanie has a breakdown and is sent to a sanitarium and a remorseful Erik leaves town and reenters the priesthood!!!…just kidding!!!!!

    you are a marvel ; love your plot points

    this would be excellent stuff for Suzanne Rogers!

    let’s give her some meaty material

    perhaps along the line she self-medicates … addiction… then Victor truly does have a stroke

    “Mother Horton”… wouldn’t this render all the Denizens of Salem… including fans alike

    that’s okay that’s probably better than what the current writing team will come up with. You left out the part however where they all have a funeral in
    Fake Leaf Park.

    That fake park looks like as bad as that fake back yard on that old Brady Bunch series…must have some connection to the name Brady being Bradys on both shows…lol

    Yes! Let’s hope that Molly is returning in a contract roll like Nadia Bjorlin is as Chloe! I love Melanie way better of course, her acting is superb, and 2 Emmy nominations don’t just stand for nothing ;) can’t wait for her to be back!

    I am all for her returning FT. I know so many are not, but I really like Molly Burnett and Melanie. I don’t care what other people say. I would like to see her and Phillip rekindle something. Keep her away from Brady. I am liking him with Theresa.

    Love Jen Lilly! Have liked her since she stood in as Maxie on GH, but love her as Theresa!

    this is a big stretch…. even with new writers

    they (writing team) certainly don’t seem to be having much affect with the SORAS teens… plus; Belle, Phillip, Shawn D., Claire, Lani, Nicole, Eric, Jennifer, Daniel

    SHE ” ONLY ” needs to return to see her Dr. Dullard Dad … killed off

    if… she is brought on long term… i’d tell to stop the tilting her head to the side and enough of the sweaters off the shoulder… and seriously! Brady is way out of your league… the furrowed expressions…. are ugh!

    I totally agree with what you say about her being out of Brady’s league, the head tilting, sweaters off the shoulder and the overacting.

    I do not wish her on Brady and even though I don’t like Melanie I can tolerate her when she’s with Gabi.

    Like Gabby!

    UGH please make this a very short return. Had to stop watching Days between this one and the Sami hour there was way too much overacting and destruction of the more interesting.

    Days has to stop propping the Jonas’ all of them

    Reply

    4ever DAYS replied

    The propping will end with a Jonahs heart stopping! The return of Melanie (and Chloe with Philip?) signals the end of the Jonahs family.

    My guess: Daniel is killed by a drunk driver. Eric is blamed, but the culprit is really Maggie who turned back to booze over Caroline moving into the Kiriakis mansion. Melanie returns for her father’s funeral. Chloe returns for Parker. In the process, Philip is revealed to be Parker’s true father and Melanie leaves, but may return when her grandmother is sentenced to rehab for the death of Dr. Dan.

    You are pretty good too…you are probably right about Parker…seems weird seeing him small and Arianna too when the other children were aged…i know the other kids were about a decade older anyway but its still weird to me…

    Patrick replied

    I really like the idea… that … Phillip is revealed to be the father… and Victor has no recourse but to accept Chloe… much to Kate chagrin

    Phillip is killed off somehow… (love, whomever, posted, that he’s in a mind fix ) so be it.. he’s not nuPhillip

    he dies off trying to takeover Kiriakis.. but.. it’s Vincent Irizarry who comes to the rescue…

    Peter Blake and or EJ is resurrected and launches the formidable DiMera

    Satan replied

    No way are they going to rewrite Parker’s paternity again. At least not until they get the real Phillip back.

    No legitimacy for this latest idiotic recast, for the love of all that’s unholy.

    I’m sad to see Daniel go now that he is hooked up with Nicole.

    No it’s not he’s about as interesting as unbuttered toast.

    more bad news on the days front.
    .. instead of getting real keepers like jason cook as shawn, jay kenneth as phillip, bringing back real faves like austin and carrie, keeping eric and eve, giving jj ,paul , jennifer, justin, adrienne, lucas
    ….we get chloe and melanie!? ouch… days maybe wasted too much budget on a two week return for bo?! this is b.s…

    I like Burnette as Melanie, but I need her acting to show growth. Enough of the overacting and silliness and coming across like a teen. She’s in her mid 20′s pushing 30 and she should project that maturity. I still also, think she would be an excellent replacement for Hope on B&B, should Kim decide not to return.

    Hopefully it’s a short return because her giddiness and teeny bopper attitude was beginning to get on my nerves as Melanie. If they allowed or instructed her to play the role with a tad more maturity maybe it would be okay.
