Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that the return of some fan favorites could shake up Salem. Ron Carlivati is hoping to make a huge splash as DOOL’s new head writer. Go big or go home! Days definitely needs something to draw in old viewers and perhaps snag some new ones as well.
Bringing back Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott) might be a good idea. Of course, making it happen could be tough. Alison Sweeney has plenty of other projects to keep her busy, but she might return if the price is right and the story is good. Sweeney has indicated that she remains open to stints at Days of Our Lives.
James Scott, on the other hand, hasn’t been too interested in coming back to the NBC soap. Nevertheless, Days has been careful to keep hope for his character alive. During Sami’s last return, she found several clues that led her to believe her beloved EJ was still out there somewhere.
Of course, DOOL fans will recall that Kristen (Eileen Davidson) injected EJ with a mysterious substance after his death. The DiMeras’ doctors must have cooked up some remedy that would preserve EJ’s body and potentially bring him back to life. There’s no reason EJ has to stay dead forever.
As we mentioned, Days could use a ratings boost. Plus, the DiMera family has dwindled to almost nothing. Now that Stefano (Joseph Mascolo) and Kristen are gone, the only adult DiMeras we have around are Andre (Thaao Penghlis) and Chad (Billy Flynn).
Andre works as a villain, but he can be a little over the top at times. As for Chad, his moral compass is often too strong. EJ straddles the line of good guy and bad guy so deftly. He was always a popular character and many Days of Our Lives watchers miss him.
A couple of audition tapes surfaced online recently. They used dialogue from an old scene between Chad and EJ, so everyone is wondering what’s to come. There’s also been some buzz about the show’s desire to bring back Sami. Since Sweeney reportedly tends to have conditions for her stints, maybe including EJ in Sami’s next storyline is one of them.
Nobody would blame Sweeney for wanting a substantial plot with a love interest. Would you like to see Sami and EJ back on canvas? Would you prefer a short stint or a longer one? 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.
