PRESS RELEASE:

On Friday, November 23, 2012, prepare for a very special flashback episode of Days of our Lives!

Set your DVRs and skip Black Friday! We will be flashing back to June 24, 1997, and an episode in which Susan was revealed to be impersonating Kristen(think flying false teeth courtesy of Laura Horton!) and John desperately searched to find the real Kristen - and Marlena - in the secret room. Don't miss it!

DAYS and NBC are taking a huge risk, re-airing an episode from earlier, better days like this.

I agree Khan. Right now the show is so by the numbers and that includes MarDar's time. One of the reasons I can't complain too much about GH is because at least there is a vision and some sort of style. The good and the bad stuff I will remember at least. DAYS the past few years is just forgettable. I look forward to this episode and seeing Kristen at her peak. I even think her return has been lackluster.

Her return needed to be a real "TA DA!!!" moment, the climax of a big mystery. Instead, it felt more like, "Hey, Kristen, 'sup?".

For real.

Not even a "hey, aren't you supposed to be dead?" mention. Ugh.

Pretty awesome that they're reairing this. I hope they don't stretch it out or make it all funky looking on HD screens.

Just imagine the flying teeth, though, in high definition. ;)

In 3D would be ideal, obviously.

I'm glad soaps weren't in Hi Def back then. I'd probably be too distracted looking at the plastic flowers covering those beautiful cardboard brick walls in the DiMera backyard to focus on the story.

The climax of the Secret Room/Susan Banks storyline is a fantastic choice! It was one of the best episodes in Reilly's tenure. And the week of this episode got DAYS' biggest ratings in the decade with a 6.9 HH rating.

Agreed!

LOL! Great idea.

Dontcha wonder how the ratings would fare if they just reran episodes from 15-20 years ago? I'd be racing home to watch again! :)

Very excited for this episode. That whole storyline hooked me on Days. 15 years later and now its a snooze fest. Kristens return just sums up Tomlin (who should be writing campier imo) and Whitesell: lackluster.

Davidson is getting double the residual checks this year - she also appears in the 2002 Victor/Nikki wedding episode of Y&R re-airing the same day (Ashley's cancer storyline was in effect at this point).
