“Days of Our Lives” (DOOL) spoilers tease that Brandon Beemer is back at DOOL. After being given the boot, Shawn was expected to ride off into the sunset with Belle (Martha Madison). This couple is obviously inching toward a reunion, so that exit would be a fitting end to their time in Salem.
However, the latest news may have forced the show to take a different direction. According to Daytime Confidential, an error was made when they fired Beemer. He had just begun a 26-week cycle in his contract. If they got rid of him, Beemer would have to be paid anyway. Instead of just handing over free money, “Days” decided to put Beemer back to work.
Now we have to wonder what the plan is for Belle. In a recent blind item from Soap Opera Digest, we learned the reports of two actors’ firings had been premature. Since Shawn and Belle apparently taped an exit together, many DOOL viewers started to suspect they were the ones SOD was referring to.
We still don’t have official confirmation on Belle, but it would be shame if Shawn returned to town without her. There’s even a possibility that they’ll scrap the exit for now and just let the characters stay on canvas.
We can’t forget that “Days of Our Lives” tapes over five months in advance. That leaves ample time for edits. Goodness knows Shawn has had plenty of scenes cut during his latest stint.
If not, Shawn might return to deal with a family issue or special police work. Belle could be stuck at a lengthy conference or on a long-term business trip. Nevertheless, it’s worth mentioning that Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) isn’t going anywhere. She signed a new contract and it appears DOOL has big plans for her. It would certainly be nice if Claire had both parents around for at least a little longer.
Regardless, many “Days of Our Lives” viewers will happily take Shawn if that’s all we can get. We can always use a handsome and talented actor like Beemer around! Getting a bit more time with Shawn is pleasant surprise. We’ll give you updates if we hear any news about what’s ahead for Shawn (and maybe even Belle).
