Days of Our Lives Spoilers: 5,000 Episodes Of Marlena Evans
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal a banner week for Marlena as Deidre Hall celebrates 5,000 episodes on the soap.
It was 1976 when Deidre Hall made her debut as young psychiatrist Marlena Evans on DAYS. She first appeared as Mickey Horton’s (John Clark) shrink in Bayview and went on to become a major player in Salem. Her first romance with lawyer Don Craig (Jed Allen) resulted in a wedding and a baby, but when infant DJ died on SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), the strain of the loss put too much strain on their marriage and they divorced.
Marlena next fell for Roman Brady (Wayne Northrop) and he became her second husband. Twins Eric Brady (played by Greg Vaughan as an adult) and Samantha Gene Brady (played by Alison Sweeney as an adult) were born but everything changed when Roman was presumed dead and then came back to life as Drake Hogestyn.

Eventually, it was revealed that this Roman was really a man named John Black. While Marlena tried to make another go of it with the real Roman, she was already in love with John and they were who were meant to be.
Since the 1990s, John and Marlena have been DOOL’s comfort couple — the one fans know will always get back together and be each other’s endgame. That is where we are now as they are both parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Many near-death and presumed deaths have not been able to keep them apart and neither has Satan himself (or herself, depending on who the devil possesses).

This week, John takes Marlena out for a special dinner where they remember their times together and her time in Salem. Expect to see flashbacks right back to Marlena’s first scene with Mickey, as well as everything in between.
It will be a day full of memories for both the characters and the fans as John and Marlena renew their love and look forward to many more years together and many more years as Marlena being one of the hearts and souls of Salem.
