As we reported earlier today, the soap world and Days of our Lives fans were reeling a bit with a news item reported by Soap Opera Digest that James Scott (EJ Dimera) would not be staying with DAYS when his contract is up for renewal.

On-Air On-Soaps then checked with DAYS directly, and they informed us that things were still on-going with James and his contract talks with the series.

Now this afternoon, the talented and beloved Mr. Scott has issued his own statement clarifying his position for his fans.  James said, “It has always been my wish to continue working with Days of our Lives, and in light of recent reassurances given, I am optimistic of my future here at Days.”

So hang tight, it would appear that James is working things out with the powers-that-be. We will keep you posted on any further updates should they become available. But James’ statement does offer some good news.

Same here. Love the vets coming back, but not enough to stick around without the character of EJ DiMera played by Mr. James Scott. DOOL would be foolish to lose him. Hope he stays.

Im so relieved. James is the only reason I have kept watching this poor excuse for a show even though EJAMI fans have not been given what they wanted. I am an EJAMI 101% and Im glad that James is working out his contract. However, I do wish that Y&R would hire him. Him and Michelle Stafford ROCK!

The acting talent of James Scott is the only reason that I watch DOOL. If he chooses to leave, his last air date would be my last watch date. I sure hope that things work out so that we, the viewing audience, can continue to his performances for years to come.

Oh, I would be devasted if JS were to leave DOOL!! The man is a highly regarded and talented actor who would no doubt do well anywhere, I just would prefer him to stay on DOOL. Seriously, if he left the show there would be no reason left for me to watch. He is DOOL for me.

James Scott is the only reason I watch Days. EJ’s character cannot be recast by another British actor.

The network would be crazy to let James scot go! He is one of the best soap actors on TV today. The chemistry between him and Allison Sweeney is amazing and totally believe able ! If they let him go I do’n’t think i I’ll watch anymore and I’ve been a loyal fan for 40 years.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Recalls The Terror He Caused In The Cabin!

On Wednesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has brought Ciara (Victoria Konefal) to a very familiar place to him, the old abandoned cabin in the woods where he had: tied up Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abigail, where he had traumatized Abigail, and where she had given birth to Thomas, and where he murdered the midwife, Wendy (Denice Duff).  Throughout the episode, Ben flashes back to all those moments in time, and the heinous acts he perpetrated.

For this episode, DAYS re-created these key scenes in Ben and Abigail’s back-story, by having Marci Miller redo the scenes, originally played at the time by Kate Mansi.  Both Wilson and Miller were riveting to watch.

In present time, as Ben tends to Ciara’s wounds, he looks around the cabin and flashes to kidnapping Abigail.  When Ciara finally starts regaining consciousness and starts to moan, it brings back memories of Wendy aiding Abigail in the birth of her son, Thomas.  He recalls murdering Wendy and burying her.  Ben begins to relive more and more moments, and then the horrific time he wanted to set Chad and Abby on fire.  Ben continues to get more beside himself, and begins to pant recalling it all.

Later, Ben is standing in a corner, staring at the flame of the lighter that had been used to start the fire that had nearly killed Chabby. Just then, Ciara wakes up and takes a look at Ben. and she screams,”Oh my God.”

What did you think of the performance of Rob Scott Wilson? What did you think about Marci Miller redoing the scenes originally that aired that were played by Kate Mani? Comment below.

Is Bryan Dattilo The Next Cast Member To Exit DAYS?

Within the last hour on Wednesday, fans and reporters took notice, and read a tweet that was posted by longtime Days of our Lives’ cast member, and enduring favorite, Bryan Dattilo (Lucas).

In his somewhat cryptic tweet, Bryan shared the following: “25 years. 2 months. 12 days. And 4 hours. Good run. Thanks to my Days family and fans. Enjoy Lucas while you can.”

Just back in April of this year, Dattilo celebrated his 25th anniversary with the series.

Does this tweet from Bryan mean he is gone from Salem? What would the show have mind that would take Lucas off the canvas if this turns out to be confirmed?

Various reports have surfaced that Dattilo’s exit may just mean that his character is being given a rest for now, but as we know in Salem life no one is really “dead” for good … are they?
