After an extremely successful story arc her last time in Salem, Alison Sweeney (Sami) is back taping new episodes of Days of our Lives.

When viewers last saw Sami in 2017, she was reunited with her son, Will (Chandler Massey), and had sex with Rafe (Galen Gering) before heading out of town.

Sweeney is very excited about the latest storyline she is currently filming written by head writer, Ron Carlivati.

The fan favorite told Soap Opera Digest that this return has been, “super-exciting, definitely a roller-coaster ride and really fun.”

Look for Alison to be back on-screen sometime later this year on the NBC daytime drama series.

So, what do you think Sami will be mixed-up in this time when she comes back to Salem? Comment below.

Is it possible she’s pregnant?

Satan
Guest

Yeah, I called that one the minute she & Rafe hooked up.

Sami’s not going to come back without some sort of shocking news…. and since James Scott has no interest in coming back (For the love of all that is unholy, do NOT let ReRon attempt an EJ recast!!) then about the only thing she could do is be carrying little Rafe Jr. when she walks in the door.

I thought of it, too, but if she’s not staying on the show not sure where that story will go…

James Scott is before my time with the show. Googling the history…

Sammy is coming back again? Honestly, I did not know she left.
I don’t watch Days but it feels like I am constantly hearing about Allison’s comings and goings. From what little I have seen of her performance on Days, I can say that kind of overly wrought scene chewing gets on my last never.
But I guess she has a huge fan base.

“thank you” on the “…overly wrought scene chewing ” agreed… altho.. her first guest arc since leaving the show… I was amazed … WOW did she work magic at bringing her son back to life and back home to Salem. LOL.. seriously… fan outcry… it took 3 years of … on that note i’m so glad Sami Brady as a standalone character… argh! I was glad she left. she has 3 claim to fame: being the wife of EJ. w/James Scott… HOT HOT HOT being the mother of Will. I’ve never seen a character so loved and lauded. ( my… Read more »

Agreed Patrick, good comparison-Sami is a an equal comparison to Carly, and I am not a big fan of either actress/character.

This is a character that was SO completely ruined by the writing of James Reilly, it is hard to take her seriously. However, I thought her 2014 exit as a kinder, gentler, NON psychotic Sami was very well written and acted. Keep THAT Sami around! Please enough of the 40 year old whack job whining about her parents getting back together.

dmr

The character has been whining since I can remember-and throwing tantrums.

Agreed. I’ve never been a big fan. Honestly, I’ve never gotten the buzz around the actress/character.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I never thought about it, dmr—-maybe because I don’t know Carly as well as I do Sami….but, yeah, now that you mention it, I see it….a force to be reckoned with, both of them!! Strong willed, chomping at the bit and holier-than-thou, whose caca is never offensive to the senses, LOL.
The main difference between them is ….one’s mother is an ex hooker; the other an ex-demon-alien?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ali does have a big fan base, dear Harry…..you should join us and watch !!!! I’m serious…truly!!! Would love your sarcastically, hilarious input—I’m sure you’d have a lot to say, and I would enjoy it immesely. Will this be Rafe’s baby? Are we making too much out of Sami’s return?…, …..which brings me to GH…..since the day Griffin came to town, not only did I question his paternity…..that is; that Fason was his father ( except I said he was in Duke mask) and Anna his mother; but also, that he and Nathan were brothers. Coming full-circle? So, Sami coming… Read more »

@Jimh.
That’s right, Jimmy….We both agreed, a while back, that Kiki and Nelle could be twins….I think Nina’s….neither looks anything like Ava…..
Both girls are tall and svelte; so similar to Nina.

True Alan, I figured she’d want to keep returning with Ron C. writing and the great return she had last year.

Ron must have Ali’s number on speed dial. He’s using her to boost Days ratings, which is not a bad thing to do.

rafe’s baby will need a rare blood transfusion. stefan o will be available. sonny tries to break up will and paul. you don’t want to meddle with sammi’s little chicken.

Coco
Guest
Coco

Sami will be returning to Salem because her one night fling with Rafe, of course created a baby! Because
Neither used protection so Sami is either pregnant or she just gave birth to Rafe’s son, which will cause more tension between Rafe and Hope since she decided to forgive him.

Andrew Hass
Guest
Andrew Hass

I keep thinking Sami will be either be pregnant with Rafe’s baby or just had the baby when we first see her again because i don’t think the show had Rafe and Sami had sex just to cause problems for Rafe and Hope.Hope probably can get past Rafe having sex with Sami since technically it wasn’t cheating but Hope may have a harder time dealing with the fact that Rafe has a child with Sami.Plus it could be revealed that when she found out she was pregnant Sami decided not to tell Rafe because she didn’t want to cause problems… Read more »

In soap-opera-land, if Sami showed up with Rafe’s already-born child, the kid would have to appear as a full-grown teenager.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Sami came back with a baby in her arms and guess who the daddy is?

Patrick

shoot.. it’s also a perfect time to bring back Christie Clark .

Sami gives the baby to Rafe… and he and Carrie are one happy family.

WISHFUL THINKING

aren’t we still waiting on , whether Kristen and Eric had a baby. what an opportune time for THIS . Jenny Bear is getting her clutches in . this can’t be possible.

Ron? The baby is Ron’s, LOL.

Maybe because EJ comes back from the dead!

Satan

Not unless James Scott has changed his mind and decided to come back. Because nothing would be worse than ReRon trying to force one of his OLTL pets in as a recast of Elvis DiMera.

Yeah, I know Kristen popped in for a 30 second cameo to tell us all that Elvis never really “left the building”, but unless they can bring back the prematurely aged British guy who was a lawyer, MBA, and race car driver all by the age of 9, then why bother at all?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Good one, Marsha….I think EJ is alive—does Sami know? If so, why sleep with Rafe?
Maybe seeing his mother again, may awaken Will’s dormant memory.

davlestev1

Her first scene will be Hope slapping the taste out of her mouth. After that who knows what that whack-a-doodle will be up to.

Or maybe she’ll one up Abby on the alters and be samabigail.

Celia

HaHa, dav….good one. I hope Sami is pregnant, or has had the baby already? Rafe has always wanted kids….Hope is waaay past her childbearing years!!
I remember when Sami and Rafe were married; he loved Johnny and Allie as his own.

The writing has been really awesome. Not the repetition per se. When there is typical daytime theme Ron throws in so many unexpected turns at rapid pace. Not the same dialog. New take on daytime. Daring.

Who knows what twist there will be with Alison. I bet nothing we guess. Pregnant seems too obvious. But never know. Somehow I think something else.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

Ali Sweeney deserved to be nominated for an Emmy for this past year work. flawless as an actress.. and as always brings Sami flaws warts and all… humane. can’t beat that WOW.. did she emerge triumphant and all … BROUGHT HER SON HOME. that in itself historic and mother and son once again top shelf and as history should dictate the heart beat of Salem. why not I wish @DAYS should pass the torch on to Christie Clark. nevertheless… Ali is coming home. she showed a stronger , more mature picture. YES OK OK who wouldn’t sleep with Rafe

blake

Agree Patrick, while I like Sami’s returns, Carrie needs to be back for good. christine Clark already said she’d love to return for longer visits.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I agree, blake….I’d prefer to have Carrie back for a prolonged stay in Salem….
As far as with whom should Rafe be paired? Funny, but, I like both scenarios….LOL.
I suppose the idea is moot, since neither “visits” long enough.

It is abundantly clear she is coming back with a baby in tow. Love Hope but she is WAY past her childbearing years. And Rafe has always wanted his own child,so why not tie him to Sami with one? I cannot wait for this. I love Samantha Gene Brady and Alison Sweeney! I hope her and Will have alot of scenes too! I bet she has a son by Rafe! Anchoring Rafe in Salem with a child of his own! So what will this make Arianna in relation to Rafe and Sami’s child? Lord the Salem family tree! Only on… Read more »

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Just to clarify…Hope is not “way” past her childbearing years. Not sure what her age is in the show but in reality Kristian Alfonso is 54. Women that age can and do get pregnant; albeit few and far between. If say, Hope is in her late 40s/’50 in the show she can still get pregnant. (see Janet Jackson who was pregnant, for the first time, at 49. and since Hope already had children it’s technically easier for her to get pregnant at an older age than for a woman who never was before) If using her own eggs is no… Read more »

Despite what others say, Richard, you are correct about child bearing age. That’s not a dig on women’s age, just the biological fact that the average US age for menopause is 51.

Hope would be pushing it, but GH has occasionally gone way beyond. Nina’s quest is painful to watch (unless she goes cuckoo again). The tease that 61 yo NLG could be with child was only topped by the easily forgotten lady in white daughter Helena would’ve had to have in her late 60s.

We suspend some reality as soap viewers, but there are limits.

Rebecca1

Hey all, what I said was it is possible, albeit rare. I didn’t say she’d want to have a child in her 50s, but the possibility exists. When it’s said that someone is “way” past, it implied to me that it was impossible. If that’s not what you meant, Richard, then I misinterpreted. Sorry. However… According to the National Center for Health Statistics, there were 743 births to women 50 years and over in 2014. In addition, the birth rate for women aged 45 to 49 was 0.8 births per 1,000 women. While these are small numbers it indicates women… Read more »

correction to Steve: I meant to say…I specifically mentioned Hope and NIna (not Alexis). Nina and Hope are wtihin the realm of possiblility. Alexis, if playing mid 50s would be, too, had the writers not put her through menopause years ago (if I remember that correctly) but I think they quickly tried to “chane history” which is why they went with that story. IF she had gone through full menopause then yes, she couldn’t get pregant naturally but still could with donor eggs. So when you write to refute my statement you’re wrong. Your “average age” of menopause might be… Read more »

@Steve. LOL, Steve …the only person I know to have had a child in her 60’s is St. Anne ( The Virgin Mary’s mother)… and that was through divine intervention ( Catechism—-Catholic Religion Education). My grandmother gave birth to her fourth child at age 47 or 48 ( naturally)….. but Hope and Nina? That’s stretching it…..I do not care what age they play….they look their real age….beautiful, nonetheless, but, we cannot defy nature. Even if that were possible; tha is, if there were still a monthly flow involved; the pregnancy would never come to fruition…..the womb would not be producing… Read more »

LOL! Celia!!!! How DID I know that you’d chime in here! I could feel you salivating for a chance alllll the way over in my corner of the room!!! I didn’t say a woman in her “60s!” could get pregnant. Did I? Ummmmm, no, don’t believe I did. Which is why I clarified that I was talking about the age of the characters in story! I also didn’t say it was common! I said, possible, albeit rare. I said that in the FIRST SENTENCE. As said, yes a woman in her early 50s CAN get preganant by natural means and… Read more »

I was so caught up in her last REEL ( guest STAR arc) thee pay off .. is so worth the wait. dang it. just one of the BEST mother/son duos of all time. Sami , the mother bear. watch yourself Chandler Massey story is SOOOO good… it’s like it doesn’t matter that he doesn’t remember his past. LOVE his relationship with paul. and love watching Sonny going thru his trials. nevertheless… the payoff of Will remembering his parents… is a must see Sami and Lucas… they both acknowledge the one thing (plus Ali) the one thing they did right…… Read more »

Rebecca, Hope is a grandmother so on soaps her getting pregnant is a tad ludicrous. Yeah real life is totally understandable, but no one wants to see Hope pregnant. I said the same thing when Brooke got pregnant by Bill but lost it on BOLD. Its way more realistic for him to have a baby with Sami since they were once married and she is probably about 40. That being said, Sami will have 5 kids and this should DEFINITELY be her last child. If Hope got preganant i would seriously laugh. In character, Hope is probably about 55. She… Read more »

Hi k/kay

I hear you. And, thanks. I respect your opinions, too. (you’re always very fair and impartial).

But! LOL…I said she could, (though it would be difficult and the odds wouldn’t be in her favor). Didn’t say she’d want to.

Hi Richard… Read my comments above. Yep; all I said was it’s possible. But being a grandmother has nothing to do with it. There are grandmothers who are in their 40s…if their 20-something (or younger) kids had kids! It’s all relative, as they say… Hope, Nina or Alexis having kids isn’t quite as “funny” as the late actor Tony Randall becoming a father at 80! Sigh…all these geriatric men becoming daddys… MY POINT, ahem, is that they still can and do. So, if the individual woman, while it’s not as common, still can, then she should, if she wants to.… Read more »

Sami could have Rafe’s intersex child. If not, maybe twins. One could be raised by Sami and the other by Rafe, but they would have to be separated before separated because they are conjoined.

I’d rather there not be any angst for “Rope”, K/kay, because I don’t like the couple. Angst should be reserved for couples who belong together or who are halfway decent. But if a baby (or babies) is/are already in the works, why not something different? I originally thought of an intersex child for Carrie and Austin…My idea was born out of the lack of detail DAYS has given in regards to their son. Carrie and Austin moved away while she was pregnant and the baby was barely mentioned and finally viewers heard the baby is a boy named Noah, but… Read more »

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
