Arianne Zucker On Her Exit Episode Of DAYS: "Today We Say Goodbye To Ms. Nicole Walker. Thank You For Taking The Journey With Me!"

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Daytime fans know Arianne Zucker gave 110% to all of her performances as Nicole Walker for over 18 years on NBC’s Days of our Lives.

The Daytime Emmy-nominated actress made the  decision to not renew her contract with the series, and since DAYS tapes six months in advance, today on the October 20th episode, viewers will see Zucker’s final scenes.

In story, Brady (Eric Martsolf) has blackmailed Nicole into leaving Salem with her daughter, Holly, or he will turn her into the police for murdering Deimos Kiriakis.  In heartbreaking scenes earlier in the week, Nicole was forced to break-up, and break the heart of her true love, Eric (Greg Vaughan), or Brady will cause havoc for her life.

Zucker took to her Twitter account today for a tune-in alert and a special thank you to the legions of DAYS fans who have loved and supported over the years.  She also mentions she intended on live-tweeting her final performance when it airs today, but she is currently filming a movie with her real-life sweetheart, Shawn Christian (Ex-Daniel, DAYS).

The actress related: “My Friends-2day we say goodbye 2 #MsNicoleWalker. TY 4 taking the journey w/me! I was going 2 try&live tweet, but I’m filming. #Raincheck ?”

So, are you ready to say goodbye to Nicole?  Let us know and share your favorite Arianne Zucker performances on DAYS throughout the years in the comment section below!

I don’t want to think Nicole will be off the canvas forever but even if she isn’t, it’ll still be tough not seeing her. The character had so many layers so that gave Arianne the chance to play the gamut of emotions which has to be a treasure trove for an actress. We got to see the character’s good side and bad side. I do have to thank Arianne for all the years of playing Nicole and making me root for the character but also making me want to smack the character upside the head sometimes. I’ll miss you, Arianne… Read more »

I agree that she won’t be gone forever, But I need to discuss the exit we got, because our gal deserv d a whole lot better! It was like he dusted off his scripts from GH where Robin left Patrick, and was typical Carlivati plot driven, out of character nonsense!! If there was one thing Nicole always was, it was a fighter!! She was not a broken, spineless woman. With a martini in hand and a scheme up her sleeve, she could do anything! The last few writing regimes have certainly done her no favours, especially saddling her with the… Read more »

I agree with you on Zack. never understood why they did that. As for Deimos, that bastard is still very much alive. He was too evil to die just by a knife to the heart. I’m just holding out hope that Arianne just wants to take some time off then go back to DAYS. Guess tile will tell.

I read all you wrote, and it was just as if I wrote this. I totally agree with all you wrote I feel they did Nicole a disservice, letting her leave the way she did. I really believed Eric would leave with her. She deserved that ending. Sorry to the actor who plays Eric, but they both deserved happiness finally. When it comes to Stefano, let him rest in piece already. The Phoenix does not have to rise again. It’s getting a little cheesy. On the same note, I’m not happy with bringing characters back from death. I honestly find… Read more »

We will miss you! You are one of the best criers on the show. The way you left I know you will be back, because they left the story line where it makes it easy for you to return. I know we will see you again. Best luck to you and Daniel (that’s the only way I know him). I also miss Daniel!

I have a feeling we might see Nicole onscreen soon because i read somewhere that Nicole will be back for the Christmas episodes.So maybe this exit will set the stage for when Nicole returns and she and Eric reunite for good once they deal with Brady’s blackmail and leave town together.

I am very sorry to see Arianne leave DOOL. She gave her all in every performance. She will be missed.

Ari,
I wish you the best of the best. You have become analogous to a ‘real’ friend.
You will be missed, and I will always hold that little light of hope you will be back, wishing for the light to get bigger and bigger every day.
If we are to place any verity to Nicole’s last words, as she stoically and sadly exits the stage, then, you will be back.
This is not good-bye, but arrivederci.

Kristen (Eileen Davidson) is returning to #DAYS. She has already begun taping so she will cross paths with Brady again.
I think she may be the key to finding Will.
Not sure how long she is staying this time.

NOOOOOOO…..
Nicoles final scenes nevermind the last month were raw and heartbreaking
Eric and Nicoles goodbye were gutwrenching…especially the moment when Eric was screaming out for her. Their chemistry is so hot that i hope Nicole doesnt stay away for long so ERICOLE can be reunited.Bradys threat was haunting and vengeful. All three actors in this triangle need to be nominated for emmys
LONG LIVE ERICOLE.

I wish her all the best. But, the ending seemed similar to Theresa’s exit.

Jim Larson
Guest

Oh you are right Lew S – Theresa’s exit was very close in that she left under the threat of blackmail.
Can I ask a ridiculous question? Why couldn’t Nicole just say “I’m taking a break from men – the heck with Brady and with Eric – I want some time with my baby and I’m moving to another State to start fresh”. Also, when Nicole left Eric, and he screamed “NICOLE!” why didn’t he run after her rather than just stay in the cabin – I mean, isn’t that what most people would do?

I will miss Nicole a lot. She made you, love her, hate her, hurt with her, laugh with her, want to get revenge on those who hurt or wronged her. She was uncomplicated, confusing and misunderstood at times. She was raw, funny, loving, direct, feisty, rambunctious, beautiful, witty, irresistible, sexy, vivacous, impossible, loving, unique,all in all simply amazing! It has been wonderful and a breath of fresh air to get to watch her, get to know her, understand her, grieve with her, get angry with her, and see her become a very strong woman who can handle pretty much all… Read more »

Yes! I share the same sentiments as this viewer, Kathy Fleck! She said it all! I am 65 year old woman and I have been a fan of Nicole/Arianne Zuckers’ since she first showed up on Days! I first began watching the show in 1975 while on maternity leave from work. Back then there was nothing on daytime tv but soaps! So, I decided to watch Days and would tape each day’s episode after VCRs became popular! I would call home from work if my husband was home to make certain no one changed the channel when Days was on!… Read more »

I have loved watching Days, and Arianne. She made that character! No one else could play her. Hope one day she’ll come back to Salem before Eric finds a new love. I am going to miss watching her. Good bye for now Arianne (Nicole to Good luck with whatever you do .

Arianne, of course we (I) will miss you. I wish you’re story line had ended better. I’m sad for Nicole. You have had our hearts and minds flipping and flopping from the first. Never evil just bad mostly for the right reasons , when Nicole would run out of options. I think you will do well at whatever you do. You are a tremendous talent. I hope only the best for you and Shawn and may your career flourish. Love ya!!

That was sincerely the WORST exit show ever. The character of Nicole deserved to leave Happy and should have taken moody, brewing Eric with her, he’s a terrible actor but I always enjoyed Nicole. I have officially given up on watching Days, just so sick of the poor writing and everyone coming back from the dead. Good luck to you Arianne, you are much too good for this past it’s prime soap.

I have only followed DAYS for the last 7-8 years but I liked Ms. Zucker and her character. DAYS is ever a confusion to me. A solid show with strong family and community setting, yet so off the rails with some of its plots and drama. I worry it will become like GH with the diMeras becoming like Cassadines with story twists at expenses of charactehttp://michaelfairmansoaps.com/wp-content/themes/mf/i/submit-button.gifr and history.

I sort of tired of her (meaning Nicole) incessant whining and indecisive nature. She goes through men like I go through a bag of M&M’s ~ I’m not knocking the actress, just the character.
I wish her (Ari) the best though in her future endeavors ~ I am sure she will continue to work and prosper.

Meanwhile, the annual Horton family Christmas has taken a devilish turn, and Eileen Davidson appears some more as the OG Kristen delivered by Satan.
