    All the roads leading to Memphis.

    [​IMG]

    Back in May, a video was posted that showed an audition for a crazed man who believes he is the real Elvis Presley, who on Halloween, in Memphis, speaks to several Salemites about a doctor who can bring people back to life. In case you forgot, here's a look back at the expected scene(s) to air around Halloween:

    WOMAN: Elvis?

    ELVIS: Who are you? And where the hell did you all come from?

    WOMAN: Trick or treat.

    ELVIS: Did you all just let yourselves in here because I did not hear a knock. Hey, hey, you're kind of making yourself at home there, ain't you darlin'?

    WOMAN: I'm sorry, Mr...

    ELVIS: Presley. Most folks know the name.

    WOMAN: Oh, we're sorry if we intruded, but...

    ELVIS: Hey, hey. Sorry...no costume, no candy.

    WOMAN: We're not here for candy.

    ELVIS: Ooh, autographs. (drops something) Butterfingers! Get it? Butterfingers (laughs)

    WOMAN: Answer the question. What do you know about Stefano DiMera.

    ELVIS: Ah, Stefano DiMera, let me see here. Say, wasn't he that side man over at Sun Records? Hmm?

    WOMAN: Stefano DiMera, he was murdered. This is not funny.

    ELVIS: Well, you know what's not funny? You all breaking in here into my house and coming in here and I don't even know y'all and you're asking me all kinds of questions. Now that's what's not funny. Now, I never heard of your friend here, Stefano DiMera,

    WOMAN: Liar.

    ELVIS: And I'm sorry for your loss, so...

    WOMAN: Just who are you?

    ELVIS: Again, the name is Elvis Aron Presley, and that's Aron with one A. That's good to know in case you're doing crosswords.

    WOMAN: Mr. Presley, let me just say that I'm a huge fan.

    ELVIS: Well, thank you ma'am, thank you very much.

    WOMAN: And we're very sorry to have intruded on your holiday celebration but we just need you to answer a few questions for us and then we'll be on our way.

    ELVIS: Look, I got a question for y'all first. Are y'all cops?

    WOMAN: No.

    ELVIS: Ah. Then you all have no right to be here on my property. Now get your butts out of my house, now!

    WOMAN: We're not going anywhere.

    ELVIS: Oh, yeah? You might want to rethink that pal.

    WOMAN: Nice cap gun you got there, Elvis.

    ELVIS: Yeah, you bet it is. It's an exact replica of my prized .38 special Smith & Wesson. And it's right upstairs, in my prized gun collection. Do you want to see it?

    WOMAN: No thanks.

    ELVIS: Well, you're going to see it up close and personal-like if you don't get your butts off my property, now!

    WOMAN: You know, a normal person, which this guy isn't, would call the cops and get rid of us. What are you afraid of?

    ELVIS: Nothing. Listen, I'll tell you what. Maybe I'll call the cops, how about that?

    WOMAN: Oh, I'll save you the trouble. They're on their way.

    ELVIS: Good. And just what complicated crime is it that you think that I have committed, huh?

    WOMAN: We don't. We're just looking for some information. If you'd help, we'll help you.

    ELVIS: Help you with what? Now I done told you already I don't know any Stefano guy.

    WOMAN: But we think you know something. We're following a money trail. We traced a payment to a bank account in Memphis associated with this address.

    ELVIS: Payment for what? Now you think I did something illegal because I am the picture postcard of clean living.

    WOMAN: There's a doctor named Monica Darver who claims that she brought back Stefano from the dead.

    ELVIS: You all are here about Dr. Darver? Why didn't y'all just say so from the damn beginning?

    WOMAN: You know her?

    ELVIS: Well, hell, of course I do.

    WOMAN: Well, how do you know her?

    ELVIS: Oh, I know her in a professional capacity. See, she has what you might call a unique area of expertise.

    WOMAN: Oh, my God, are you saying you hired Dr. Darver...

    ELVIS: To bring a man back from the dead? Why, yes ma'am, I did.

    WOMAN: You paid Dr. Darver to bring Stefano back?

    ELVIS: Oh, good God, no. I told you, I never heard of this Stefano guy until tonight.

    WOMAN: Then what are you talking about?

    ELVIS: Oh, please, now isn't it obvious. Huh? Come on now! The person I paid the doctor to bring back to life was me! The fans demanded it. Long live, The King!

    WOMAN: I told you, this isn't funny. You know something about him, I know you do.

    ELVIS: I can't tell you more than I already have.

    WOMAN: No, if there's a chance he's still alive, I'll get the truth out of you one way or another.

    ELVIS: Hands off The King!

    I wonder if that "woman" is really Susan Banks? She did mention she was a big fan and from what I recall Susan was obsessed with Elvis Presley.

    You are probably right. The grammar is too good for Susan, only thing threw me off was the Elvis fan portion lol.

    Barb, you saw this when the video was posted several months ago, by an actor who auditioned for a role. We commented on it at the time.

    Here's the thread:

    http://www.salemspectator.com/threa...ight-on-possible-storyline.30086/#post-632264

    Greg Rikaart (the actor from Y&R) won't start airing until the spring.

    The "Elvis" in the scene isn't EJ, though. It's a guy who thinks he's actually Elvis Presley.

    That all takes its toll. Plus, this was originally posted several months ago. Was just trying to help refresh your memory on it.

    I'm surprised the audition video hadn't been taken down. Wonder if the actor in the audition video was the actor they eventually cast in the role?

    I bet if and when this scene actually airs, multiple characters will be interacting with "Elvis" and not just one woman

    I remember the dialogue sounding like two different characters talking to "Elvis".

    Yes, multiple characters it would seem.

    From the beginning of the piece, I thought that it might be Kate speaking - the dialogue is sharp (especially with the "liar" part). But I think you're right that it's two people speaking, especially with the use of plurals ("get your butts out of here" and "y'all"). I'll bet its Kate and Marlena as they're both deeply invested in the Stefano mythology and make the most sense from that aspect.

    Tracing a money trail comment makes me wonder if Hope is one of the people who is talking. Maybe the 3 of them are there?
