Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) headed back to the NBC soap later this year. There’s no word yet on how long she’ll be sticking around, but her visit will kick off in late summer. Sweeney typically only returns if she’s offered super juicy storylines, so those can take a while to play out. Perhaps Days fans will be able to enjoy Sami for a few months.
Regardless, there’ll be plenty of time for DOOL shockers and shakeups. To figure out what the show might have in store, let’s consider some Days of Our Lives history. After EJ (James Scott) was killed off, Kristen (Eileen Davidson) injected him with a mysterious substance in the morgue. Sami had no idea, so she moved to Hollywood for a movie deal. She was desperate for any kind of distraction.
Sami was devastated once again when Will (Chandler Massey) “died.” She mourned the loss, but received a glimmer of hope before she left. Days viewers will recall that Sami discovered hints about EJ’s survival. Alas, her journey around the world to find him never panned out.
At any point along the way, Days could’ve let us forget about EJ. Instead, they’ve been careful to remind us of what really happened. Will was also injected with Dr. Rolf’s (William Utay) back-from-the-dead serum, so there’s proof that this stuff works. Plus, Kristen laughed maniacally about how Susan (Eileen Davidson) didn’t know EJ was actually alive.
Now that DOOL has provided confirmation on that, it seems inevitable that EJ will return down the road. Days of Our Lives spoilers suggest that could be one of the reasons for Sami’s next stint. You can’t bring back James Scott or introduce an EJ recast without Sami around. The story just wouldn’t work.
Since the prep work is out of the way, DOOL can dive right in when Sami hits Salem. Perhaps Sami will come home to visit and get the shock of her life when EJ appears. Then again, Sami could assemble a team for one final mission to find him. There are several intriguing possibilities for this hot plot.
Will EJ stick around after Sami departs or will they ride off into the sunset together? Either way, it’d be a terrific storyline. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Sami’s comeback will bring some excitement, so we’ll give you updates as other news comes in.
