Around Halloween this year, the all-soap opera channel will showcase a mini-marathon featuring three of the most notorious episodes in the colorful history of the Days of Our Lives franchise.

On October 28, episodes numbered 7,528, 7,531 and 7,570 will air anew over SOAPnet,  starting at 9 p.m.

In episode 7,528, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) has caught on to Marlena, even as the possessed Salem psychiatrist transforms into a panther and gets a swarm of bees to attack the aging Shawn Brady (Frank Parker).  This installment originally aired on May 12, 1995.

The second episode that night features Marlena levitating in front of her stunned loved ones.  When they attempt to communicate with her, she responds as Satan; exorcism is the only recourse.  Episode 7,531 was originally broadcast May 17, 1995.

The final installment scheduled to close out the marathon is episode 7,570, which first aired July 18, 1995.  In it, John Black (Drake Hogestyn) fights the devil for Marlena's soul, as the rest of her family and friends believe she is already dead.

Enjoy them all!

Days of Our Lives Quotes

Lucas, I raised you to be a better liar than that.

Kate

Deimos: I believe that the younger generation in this family have been handed everything on a silver platter, and they don't appreciate it.
Maggie: By younger generation, you must mean Sonny.
Deimos: All right, fine. Let's start with Sonny. I'm trying to work with him, Maggie. I've just given him a very important position in the company and instead of being grateful for the opportunity, he's being an oversensitive, temperamental pain in my neck. But at least he's still here. Brady, on the other hand, he's taken off, abandoned the family, Titan. He's left me all alone to deal with the Hernandez family on my own.
Maggie: Well, there's an easy solution to the Dimera and the Hernandez families. Just bow out.
Deimos: I do that and I lose face.
Maggie: With whom?
Deimos: With everyone. Except Nicole. She's taken off too.
Maggie: And to think I naively thought that maybe I'd gotten through to you the last time we had a serious conversation. Let me ask you a question. Has doing things your way gotten you anywhere?
