Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that EJ DiMera (Dan Fuerriegel) may play the role of Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) in Johnny DiMera’s (Carson Boatman) possession movie. Could this be Johnny’s clever strategy to win over his dad?
So far, EJ thinks Johnny’s filmmaking career is a total waste of time. EJ would much rather see his son joining DiMera Enterprises and working his way up in the family business.
However, Johnny might show EJ a path forward that embraces their family legacy in another way.
After all, Stefano was a crucial part of the ‘90s possession story through the “Queen of the Night” story that came before it.
Stefano’s plot made an already vulnerable Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) even more vulnerable and paved the way for the devil to take control.
Now that Johnny has decided to ditch the rest of the Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) flick and just focus on the possession, he might shift tactics with EJ.
Johnny previously acted like he could just write EJ out of Sami’s movie and argued that Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) was portrayed as the love of her life.
It was a good way to push EJ’s buttons, but it didn’t score Johnny any points with his father or make him more inclined to support his filmmaking endeavor.
Now Johnny has a chance to adjust his strategy and make EJ a significant part of the film instead.
Since EJ is more like Stefano than any of the other DiMera children, so it’d be pretty fitting.
Of course, Johnny might turn to Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) first, but Days fans know Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) keeps him on a short leash!
Anna quite enjoys her time with Tony and may not be willing to share him. There’s also the matter of whether EJ would even allow it since he wouldn’t allow Tony to invest.
EJ makes more sense as DOOL’s curveball Stefano star, especially since Johnny will push Abigail DiMera (Marci Miller) to star in his movie as well.
Just imagine how jealous Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) will get if EJ and Abigail – the former lovers – end up working on this project together.
This could also open the door for a devilish affair if Abigail gets possessed next. Bottom line, Johnny would be smart to cast EJ as Stefano and use this to generate some film excitement.
Days would also be smart to use this to fuel Chad and EJ’s brother battle, so it’d be a great move all around.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say some shockers and shakeups are brewing thanks to this movie, so stay tuned to DOOL.
