- Marlena Is Possessed! (1995)
Satan had some fun in Salem when he took residence within the body of forever-heroine, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall). The crazy storyline was full of special effects, including glowing yellow eyes, levitation, and morphing. It was over the top in the best possible way. In the storyline, Marlena went to Louisiana in search of John but was instead captured by Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo), who forced her to call her husband, Roman Brady, and tell him that she was with John Black. Stefano began giving Marlena mind-altering drugs (and oddly making appearances in her bedroom via her armoire). It was soon revealed that she was possessed by the devil, with Stefano considering her his “Lady of the Night”. John Black, who was a priest at the time, was forced to perform an emergency exorcism months later.
