DAYS ON ARENA)
The spookiest night of the year is always a time for outlandish fun and games but Days really ramped up the camp factor with last month’s horror-fest! In Hattie’s zany nightmare, alter ego Deidre Hall was pitch-perfect as always in her second skin as she dreamt that Kristen was murdered by the Devil and then had to play Marlena to gure out who did it! Thanks to Ron Carlivati’s love for nostalgic story touches, Marlena’s rip-roaringly popular Satanic possession from the 1990s, as well as macabre reappearances from Princess Gina (Hope’s 1990s alter ego) and Anjelica Deveraux (played by Judith Chapman) – complete with glowing red eyes, were all played for laughs. Add in
Andre DiMera, Doug and Julie with over-the-top Brooklyn accents, John’s death by cocktail shaker and the birth of Abigail’s baby bearing
Andre’s face and the entire episode was one bizarre hour that bodes very well for the crazy drama that lies ahead when Jack Deveraux rises from the dead on New Year’s Eve! Happy haunting!
