Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that a popular character seems to be returning from the dead. An audition tape recently leaked featuring Tim Abell and the dialogue offers some clues about what’s in store. In the clip, it appears to be Halloween and a man answers the door claiming to be Elvis Presley.
Another Days character pesters him with questions and “Elvis” gets…well, all shook up. He’s highly annoyed and insists he knows nothing about Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo). The person at the door continues to grill “Elvis” and a breakthrough is made. This guy knows the doctor that supposedly brought Stefano DiMera back to life.
Of course, Days often uses code names to disguise characters and throw DOOL fans off track. Now that Joseph Mascolo has passed away, there’s no point in stirring up more Stefano drama. Days of Our Lives gave us closure when Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Shane (Charles Shaughnessy) saw a picture of the man they believed could be the real Stefano.
In other words, Stefano is already just out there somewhere. That’s a fitting end to the infamous villain’s time on the NBC soap. Could this be another character instead? Days of Our Lives buzz suggests that the role of EJ DiMera is being recast. James Scott doesn’t seem to have any interest in reprising the part, so a newbie may have to take over.
It’s also possible that Stefano’s doctor is being sought out because of what she did in the past. Since the DiMeras use the same miracle workers, the Stefano trail could easily lead to EJ. It’s an interesting option to consider.
Whatever the case, many DOOL viewers would welcome EJ’s return in any form. He’s a great character who straddles the line of good and evil. It would be nice to see Sami (Alison Sweeney) reunite with her true love.
Kristen (Eileen Davidson) injected EJ’s body with a mysterious substance after his demise. We all assumed he’d pop up again eventually. Is it finally happening? Another huge hint could be the fact that “Elvis” answered the door. That’s EJ’s actual first name, so this might be a little joke.
Days sometimes throws in humorous touches like that. Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) alias in Canada was “Freddie Smith,” which is the actor who plays Sonny. Perhaps including “Elvis” is a way of adding some fun to the story.
Regardless, it looks like EJ may soon be back in the picture. We’ll give you updates as other news comes in. Stay tuned and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news.
