The Days of Our Lives Flash Forward promo was released at the Day of Days event this weekend at Universal City. This particular preview is all about the time jump now referred to as the "Flash Forward." Without further ado, let's get into it.
We open with the sands running through the hour glass and some quotes from Salem's finest. Let's see if we can figure out who says what.
"I'm so sorry for what I did." - Sounds like Chad (Billy Flynn) to me. What do you think?
"How about we have some drinks and get to know each other a little better?" - I'm getting Ciara (Victoria Konefal) vibes from this one.
"I've been keeping something from you. Something big." - I'm thinking this is Will, but I'm not at all certain. What do you think?
"I hope she burns in hell for what she's done." - This one is pretty clearly Lani (Sal Stowers).
"Now you know what it's like to take a life." - Sounds like Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) to me. Any thoughts?
Now we get some moving pictures to go with the verbiage!
We start from the beginning, last Friday, with Jack (Matthew Ashford) telling Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) that she's been asleep for an entire year. Then, Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) are wandering through Horton Square with Julie remarking that "so much has changed since then." These words echo while we see shots of Chad and Abigail (Kate Mansi) in front of a Christmas pop-up in Horton Square. Next, we see Sonny (Freddie Smith) with a newly aged Arianna Grace, sitting with a handsome gent (Brock Kelly) WHO IS NOT WILL, with a baby carriage. We conclude this segment with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) in front of some very floral curtains with a man's hand getting quite familiar with her shoulder.
DAYS OF OUR LIVES - FLASH FORWARD takes us to the next segment.
Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) with a baby and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) with two babies - no, wait, I mistook Eric (Greg Vaughan) for a baby, sorry. I kid. I kid. He is looking at Sarah quite lovingly and saying nice things. We then flash to Nicole (Arianne Zucker) in an office with a Basic Black logo on the door and Xander (Paul Telfer) in the door looking all Clark Kent-ish with a Titan portfolio.
Side Note: Can we PLEASE add those glasses to Xander's regular wardrobe choices?
Victor (John Aniston) is now telling a spiffy looking Ciara that she is the future of this family - to which she heartily agrees and Abigail is Jack's (Matthew Ashford) #1 reporter - presumably at the Spectator. We end this segment with Kayla at the Brady Pub giving her order . . . to Kate (Lauren Koslow)!
"And everyone's lives will be changed forever."
This segment has Eli (Lamon Archey) asking Abe (James Reynolds) how Lani is - she's gone. A flash of Ciara followed by a very scruffy JJ (Casey Moss) with a gun, and Sonny to Rafe (Galen Gering), "I miss him. I miss him a lot."
"Where Are They Now" begins to flash across the screen
This segment opens with Clyde (James Read) and Ben incarcerated in the same place! Is it another one of Ben's hallucinations or on the real? Next, Gabi (Camila Banus) is about to take a bubble bath with Eli, and Hattie (Deidre Hall), in prison, establishing herself as the best friend of . . . EVE (Kassie DePaiva)! and Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) sipping wine and asking John if he still misses "her."
We're heading towards the tail end of the promo with Jennifer Rose announcing that she thinks somebody pushed her! And Gina is still lurking around hospital rooms - perhaps still frustrated because folks continuously interrupt her attempts to smother Jennifer Rose! Finally, Kayla runs up on Santa Claus asking if he is Steven Earl Johnson (Stephen Nichols).
The Time Bending Twist Never Before Seen in Daytime Drama
Random Flashes of
Ben slamming down the phone in the prison.
Xander kicking over chairs - presumably at Titan.
Gabi smiling lovingly back at Eli.
Sarah and Xander kissing!
Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) embracing a very upset Sarah.
Justin (Wally Kurth) in tears!
Brady and Nicole talking all serious and embracing.
We are going to conclude the Winter promo with the "Is Stefano actually alive" section featuring Princess Gina WITH THE BLONDE STREAK BACK saying "What do you think Steffy?" immediately followed by a man flicking the ash off his cigar. Next, Chad is saying to Abigail, "I am absolutely sure this is my father." We conclude this section with lots of Phoenix rings and chess playing.
We end our Winter promo with Xander saying, "All hell is going to break loose," and a little wink from Princess Gina.
DAYS doesn't play with these seasonal promos. They are always packed with lots of rich, tasty, goodness.
