It was a year ago around this time that Alison Sweeney completed her nearly 22-year-run as Sami Brady DiMera on Days of our Lives! The actress who had been busy with other projects including the most highly-rated Hallmark Movie on the network of all-time, Murder She Baked Murder, A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery, made her return to the set of the NBC soap opera today for the show’s upcoming 50th anniversary storylines!

Sweeney’s TV mom,  Deidre Hall (Marlena) posted a picture of her and Sweeney with a message on her official facebook page that related:  “Some days are better than others. And some days are utterly joyous! Today is such a day.”

Now the question is, what will Sami do when she returns to Salem?  How will she pick up with her life post-EJ (James Scott)?  Will Sami ever find out that EJ just may be very much alive thanks to an injection via Kristen  (Eileen Davidson)?

What do you think should happen to Sami when she gets in the mix with the Salemites?  Are you glad to hear that Alison Sweeney is making a return to honor the show’s upcoming huge milestone?  Let us know!

It was SUCH a blessing to have Sami gone for quite awhile, I didn’t miss her in the least.

Parts of it, 4ever. When will comes on, I just push that little button with the fad-forward arrow. I don’t know how much longer I have to digest this guy….and John Black.

You are funny or dilusional or actually both. The ratings are scary and everybody and their mothers know and say this soap is totally boring.
Sami was their saving grace for many years but AS has so much better to do, she can be successful HER outside of daytime. She doesn’t need Days as much as Days need her..that’s for sure

To me, the show would benefit from some updated sets and some storylines with a bit of intrigue. I thought the whole bit with Kristen returning just to fall out of a window was idiotic and the “painted backdrop” that was supposed to be Italy was just plain embarrassing to watch.
I like Alison Sweeney but whether or not she will find out that EJ is alive through a magic injection is anyone’s guess. It was my understanding that James Scott would not return unless this is for a guest cameo appearance.
I suspect that once the show has it’s 50th Anniversary that it may be a wrap, and I hope that’s not the case, but if it is, then DOOL has had a pretty long run!

I looked forward to Kristen’s return but this time around i consider it too contrived…wouldve been better had she got pregs by Erik and tried to pass the child as Bradys…Brady would get custody of the baby, become attached over the next 6 months, then learned the child he thought was his is really Eriks!!! They couldve created more drama with that storyline!!!

I am okay with her coming back,

Sami may be in danger because of Stefano. I hear he is out for blood because of Kristen’s “death”. If not Sami it could be someone else in Marlena’s family who is on Stefano’s hit list. Maybe even Arianna!

Ali Sweeney is doing a favor to Days by coming back but it will be a short visit (too bad for them and their ratings..lmao)..because she has better and bigger things to do..simple as that.

THURSDAY: E! News Daytime Drama Deep Dive Visits DAYS, GH, and Y&R

Mark your calendars for a very special segment on the soaps, when E! News delivers their Daytime Drama deep dive on Thursday, May 23 hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy at 7pm-8pm ET/PT on cable’s E!

Look for set visits, interviews, retro clips, and more with some of the most famous and enduring characters in the genre.  Here’s just a sample of what to watch for:

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

In Salem and Days of our Lives, E! chats with series staples: Kristian Alfonso (Hope), then Deidre Hall (Marlena) and Drake Hogestyn (John).  Deidre reveals “possession will be on my tombstone” in terms of Marlena’s most infamous story of all-time when the good doc was possessed by Satan, while the beloved duo discuss why daytime is the best job to have.  Alfonso talks on the history of her character sharing: “I am going to hold near and dear to my heart the beginnings of Hope. And the adventure and the romance of Bo and Hope”.

From the set of General Hospital new interviews are featured with: Laura Wright (Carly), Steve Burton (Jason) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia), plus Casting Director Mark Teschner remembers Meghan Markle’s acting debut on the ABC daytime drama series.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.

Check out the promo below.  Then, let us know if you will be checking out the ‘deep dive’ this Thursday via the comment section below.
