Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that suspicions are growing about Stefan (Tyler Christopher). He obviously isn’t a trustworthy guy, but some new speculation is taking that to the next level. Some sites and Days fans are convinced that Stefan is actually EJ (last played by James Scott).
Stefan mentioned growing up in boarding schools and showed off his British accent for Abigail (Marci Miller). That’s led some to believe that Stefan may be lying about his identity. The DNA test would confirm Stefan as Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) son either way, so people are wondering if Stefan’s posing as EJ. They think he may have had plastic surgery to change his appearance.
Of course, it’s easy to poke holes in that theory. For starters, plenty of soap kids have been sent to British boarding schools. It’s practically a right of passage. Many Days kids like JJ (Casey Moss) have been shipped off to London over the years. It doesn’t make Stefan’s case unique.
Some DOOL viewers have also mentioned Stefan’s interest in Abby as evidence. It’s true that EJ and Abigail had a hot fling, but that was only because Sami (Alison Sweeney) was shutting EJ out. Abigail fulfilled a craving for EJ, but that was pretty much it. Their affair was all about sex.
Stefan, on the other hand, seems to have true feelings for Abby. He’s attracted to her spunk and kind heart. For EJ, the only heart he wanted was Sami’s! That’s perhaps the best proof that Stefan isn’t lying. There’s no way EJ would just bail on Sami and his kids. He wouldn’t be wasting time with Abigail and all this corporate DiMera nonsense. EJ would be out there reuniting with his soul mate.
Stefan also appears to buy his own backstory when he’s alone with Vivian (Louise Sorel), so lying’s out. It’s possible EJ was brainwashed like Will (Chandler Massey), but there are still some problems with that idea. Stefan never mentioned any memory issues in his past. Will has had a hard battle with amnesia. He’s barely been able to function in society.
Abigail looked up Stefan’s background online and realized he wasn’t a business rookie. Before Stefan learned Stefano was his father, his name was Sam Maitland. He spent years as a rising star in the cooperate world. Chad (Billy Flynn) did some digging as well and everything seems to check out. Stefan remembers all of this.
Furthermore, bringing a brand-new character on canvas is often more difficult than plopping a recast in. A familiar character has a built-in fanbase. If Days of Our Lives was going to bring Stefan in as EJ, it would’ve made more sense to do it from the start.
Bottom line, we don’t buy the idea that Stefan and EJ are the same person. Days could change their mind and rewrite this later, but probably not without Sami around. It could be years before Alison Sweeney comes back, so they’re probably sticking with Stefan for now.
On the bright side, it could leave the door open for a true EJ recast. Many viewers would love to see Stefan and EJ go to war at some point! For now, Days of Our Lives spoilers say Stefan will cause enough trouble on his own. We’ll give you updates as other news comes in.
