Great news for Days of our Lives fans! Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the NBC daytime drama series to reprise her role as Sami Brady!

According to Soap Opera Digest, who broke the news, Sweeney will be on set in May and June taping new episodes for an extended stay this time.

Ali told SOD on finding some time to return to DAYS: “Unfortunately this year’s been hard for me because of my knee injury, so I had to push some stuff back. So, I figured out a schedule, blocked out some time that I had available and we figured it out!”

The exciting thing this time out is to see how Sami will be written under new head writer Ron Carlivati!  In fact, Carlivati tweeted on the news: “Here comes trouble…” noting how trouble always follows Sami on screen!

So, excited for an Alison Sweeney return? What do you think will be her story when she arrives back on the canvas? Comment below.

I think DAYS hopes lapsed Sami/DAYS viewers will tune in as Sami rakes many characters over the coals, which will bring the viewers up to speed with all the characters and their storylines. And she’ll also be ushering the return of her son, Will.

Welcome back to DOOL, Alison. Her stay will only be for 2 months. The best news in a long time,. Alison is a wonderful actress, she is very busy with other projects. Maybe in the future she will return to DOOL full time. The future for Days looks more brighter with the hiring of Ron.

Hey Tomas…L-O-L…and SO TRUE!!!!! And, while she’s at it, she can also torture TPTB at DOOL!!!!! After all, they’re the ones who inflicted those GOD-AWFUL TEENS on us all!!!!! BEYOND B-L-E-C-H!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve never been a big fan of Alison Sweeney…. Do, I thank her, for keeping afloat the show. absolutely that’s saying … a lot for a two month gig… let’s see her come between Rafe and Hope. WHY NOT ? Rafe and Hope are forced Hope is so old … baggage galore… and used up.. and she just does not stir sans the original Ciera Alice… Bo…. heck.. even Daniel Cosgrove.. built her whats going to happen to her now… with Rafe… a miracle pregnancy.. isn’t she 50+ according to “WIKI” she was born onscreen .. in 1974. she’s 43.… Read more »

PATRICK!!!! My wonderful, poetic friend!!!! Welcome back!!!! Agree with everything you have stated. You and I have always been in accord as far as Hope and Rafe are concerned. I never saw the intimate, come hither, exchange of looks…..never felt the passion. Sami, on the otherhand brought fire, stormy weather, and sunshine to every relationship. I am so tired of these ‘no clue’, go back to Mt. Olympus, soap gods portraying Hope as a youngster in her first taste of love. She’s supposed to be 43? Isn’t she a grandmother, who may end up as a great grandmother? Claire is… Read more »

This is going to be good—I know Ron is going to have Sami stirring the pot with everyone. We’re about to go for quite the ride when Ron’s shows air especially if he still uses his “surprise-a-day” technique he had on OLTL and GH.

What is the “surprise-a-day”?

James R. Poissant

Ron always put some kind of cliffhanger on every show so that you had to tune in tomorrow. Very few of his shows could be considered filler because he always added excitement. Some folks called it being plot-driven as opposed to being character-driven but alot of us didn’t care because the suspenseful moment was always fun to watch. If he still writes his shows the way he did in the past with other soaps, you’ll see what i mean very quickly. I do love this guy!!!

I want bad Sami… remember her undercover as a dude? Oh yeah, we need Bad Sami. I hope Ron enjoys Bad Sami as much as we do.

Will coming back would be fine, so long as it’s not NuWill. If Chandler won’t do it, then recast once more.

Celia
Guest

Lol, Tomas!! Yes, the undercover story was incredibly ‘stirring’….baaaad, baaaad Sami; come on down!!!!

Good news! I just wish EJ were returning with Sami.

I haven’t missed the overly dramatic “acting” or the character at all. It’s been a nice change, not having the “Sami” show, 24/7; however, TPTB have crucified the show with its onslaught of youth that cannot act, recasts, and terrible plots. I tuned in yesterday while home for lunch and saw the Chad and Abigail scenes. First, I have always LOVED Chad. The actor that plays Chad is destined for greater things. He killed those scenes. NuAbigail is dreadful. Kate Mansi was gorgeous and grew into such a strong actress. NuAbigail is meek and weak. I was rooting for Chad… Read more »

Hi, dmr, I was afraid to say anything negative about nuAbby. But, I agree. She’s not doing it for me. I have fallen for Billy Flynn since his first appearance on stage. He has gone beyond my expectations, but I see not the easiness with Marci. Their scenes together are clinical and stilted. I think the PTB saw the disconnect between Chad and nuAbby…..not working. Therefore, they are being separated. However, I do not see Chad with Gabi, either, in my opinion, albeit, I did love her and JJ together. But, the ‘bosses’ wanted Chad and Gabi as a couple;… Read more »

Its all going to matter on her storyline but the show needed a boost with Sami’s return with
the departure of Nicole to fill the void…if only Teressa would return too…

Jenn Lilley played Theresa Donovan, Mo. Brady’s wife and mother to Tate?

I hope Ron (aka Jim Reilly Jr.) does not have Sami return just being an angry, hateful bitch for no reason. Sami has grown, and has matured. Of coirse she will always have that edge….she IS Sami afterall…..but she made peace with a lot of people before she left. To have her return as a one-note, one dimensional bitter woman again would be a cheat to the show and to the fans.

‘Bout time! I wish she could convince James Scott to come back with her! Maybe he would consider a short-term return.

Celia
Guest

That would be good, as well, SZima.
I’ve ‘chanted’, more times than not, that Sami, EJ, the younger kids and Will were together ( in Switzerland?), safely ensconced in a DiMera chalet, hidden within the Alps ( LOL) until the time was right to return? Pipe dreams, I know.

Celia
Guest

Yeayyyy!!!! If only Sami could reunite with Rafe….loved these two as a couple.

+1 to that. Cue the flashbacks!

Hopefully this means that real Will is also on his way back to Salem. Ron could possibly explain it that the Will we saw strangled by Ben was actually a brainwashed DiMera doppleganger (as much as I’d hate going that route again, I’d accept it if it meant getting a legacy character back that never should have been killed off in the first place). The switch could have been made when Will was in LA writing that screenplay. It would also explain his OOC behavior when he returned. Oh well, I can dream, can’t I?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Love your scenario, PF. Stefano did it with Rafe; why not Will? I’d prefer Chandler, but, as you point out, regardless of the actor, any legacy character will be welcomed.
Funny how we both had the same thought? ….down to the dreaming, LOL.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

But like i said long ago, Will was revived off camera and has been in a coma…he will probably wake up and show up at the wedding of Sonny and Paul in predictable fashion!!!

Celia
Guest
Celia

@Jimh.
Yes, you did, Jimmy. We both agreed on that, as I had said the same thing. Sami had Will stashed away somewhere as he recouped.

If Chandler is brought back, then I’d like to see his marriage to Sonny re-done, correctly this time, with the correct actor playing Will.

I’m glad she’s returning. By the time her episodes air we will be well into Carlavatis stories and this may just be the icing the cake needs. .time will tell. .although it’s telling she’s filming already. .we’ll see. The man has an ego the size of Texas so I’m cautiously optimistic with him and this news.

Show is awful right now – hate to say it, but that’s how I feel – the writing is thin and tired – the acting, overall is certainly more than passable with the exception of some of the teens – but the storylines are just atrocious. This plot involving Nicole hiding out with the baby until some guy remembers that she was once Misty Circle – I mean, honestly, it’s beyond absurd.

Please don’t bring back that annoying Allison Sweeny I was so glad to see the back end of her. Clyde and Ben were another pair that did not add to the show. Surely the writers can create some better characters. I know I am not the only person who feels this. These annoying characters are gone so please leave it that way, particularly that Sweeny woman. If these characters come back I will find a new soap to watch
Because I can’t bear the stupidity of the Sweeny woman and her acting is the pits.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

Photo: JPI

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

Photo: JPI

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
