Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers for the week of October 16-20 tease that there’s some big casting news to pass along. The latest comings and goings info is definitely worth checking out. For starters, Greg Rikaart is headed to the NBC soap. Y&R viewers will recognize Rikaart as Kevin on Y&R, but he’ll be trading for Genoa City for Salem when his multi-episode arc airs in the spring.
This is a short-term gig, but it looks like Rikaart will play a crucial role in an upcoming storyline. Unfortunately, we’ll also have to say goodbye Nicole (Arianne Zucker). Zucker will be taking her final bow on Friday, October 20. Thanks to Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) blackmail, Nicole will have to dump Eric (Greg Vaughan) and bid Salem farewell.
Nicole has always been a fan favorite, especially during her scheming years. She’ll have a chance to face off with Sami (Alison Sweeney) before she goes, so that’s something to look forward to. Speaking of Sami, Sweeney just kicked off her latest stint with Friday’s cliffhanger. DOOL fans can expect Sami to become a huge part of the action over the next two months.
Kassie DePaiva is set to return as Eve, too. Days of Our Lives spoilers state that Eve will arrive in town on Friday, October 27. Eileen Davidson will follow with her arc in November. Let’s hope Davidson will reprise her role as manipulative Kristen and maybe even eccentric Susan.
Those characters would certainly be nice additions to some of the Will (Chandler Massey) drama that’s playing out. Another character tied to this storyline is Dr. Rolf (William Utay). There’s no word yet on how many episodes Dr. Rolf will be in, but we know he’ll pop up on Monday, October 23.
Days spoilers say we’ll learn more about what Dr. Rolf did to Will through some faux flashbacks. Chandler Massey also reshot some of the scenes Guy Wilson taped in the role. One of them is Will’s gripping murder in Ben’s apartment. Another one involves Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) and Sami’s visit to the morgue. Be on the lookout for those heartbreaking moments as this hot plot moves along.
