Days of our Lives long-time star, Alison Sweeney announced via her Instagram account on Sunday that she is indeed returning to the NBC soap opera just in time for its 50th anniversary.  The show milestone will happen later this year in November.

Sweeney, who lost in her bid to win last night in her first ever Daytime Emmy for Lead Actress in her first nomination in almost 22 years playing the role of Sami Brady DiMera, posted the news of her return to the Salem canvas with a picture of her with a DAYS script.

Ali related: ” Guess what?! I get to be a part of celebrating #days50 !!! So thrilled!!!”  Just when Sweeney’s actual return date to the airwaves is has not been announced, but the series is taping episodes that look to be airing in late August/early September at this point in time, since DAYS tapes so far ahead.

It’ll be nice to see Sami again! I wish Ali would have won the Emmy, but if she or Peggy McCay couldn’t, I’m glad Maura did!

I hope the writing is good and they DONT age her children!!!! And there needs to be a reveal that EJ is alive!! The Hollywood exit was very poorly written and contrived…..

That’s a good point, richard. One never knows….perhaps there will be a reveal that EJ is alive. There should be a happy ending for Sami and EJ.

What a shocker!
I mean, really, who didn’t know she’d only be gone for two New York minutes?
I think she just left only to come back in order to garner attention.
But really, Miss Sweeney, how can we miss you if you won’t go away?

Her scenes won’t air until September? This is April. Honestly, Days Of Our Lives tapes too far in advance. Are we expected to be excited about something that won’t be seen for close to 6 months?

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
