I was watching the “Saturday Morning Freakout” episode of Forbidden Transmission again when this clip came up, and it finally dawned on me where I knew the name “Deidre Hall” from.
FUCKIN’ MARLENA FROM DAYS OF OUR LIVES.
I kind of wonder if this had anything to do with the sheer number of completely and utterly batshit insane storylines that her character ended up having to go through (including being possessed by the devil).
…I’m not even kidding.
What’s funny is that all of my knowledge about the show is from my mom talking about it. You don’t even have to actually watch Days of Our Lives to know how goddamn loony it is.
Honestly, I wouldn’t put it past the writers to have Marlena become Electra Woman, and start fighting crime in Salem. If not her, then maybe they’ll bring back her long lost, crazy twin sister.
