Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease Return To DAYS Just As Shane & Kimberly's Daughter, Theresa Is In Imminent Danger!



This week on Days of our Lives marks the return to the canvas for another enduring soap supercouple, Shane and Kimberly Donovan, the parents of Theresa (Jen Lilley)!  This means that actors Charles Shaughnessy (Shane) and Patsy Pease (Kimberly) are back.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale on newsstands now, Shaughnessy previews what brings Theresa’s parents back to action in Salem: “Theresa hears from a guy, Guillermo  (Kurt Caceres), who is someone that she got involved with in her past.  It is also someone Shane has been trying to apprehend for 10 years.”  As fans of DAYS know, Shane has mostly been an ISA agent for years, so he would be wanting to nab the bad guy.

Shaughnessy elaborated into the further troubles of Jen Lilley’s Theresa:  “She comes up with a solution to the problem that Shane and Kim consider way too dangerous.  But she convinces them its the only real solution.” 

So, are you looking forward to seeing Kim and Shane’s visit to Salem and aiding their daughter in her time of need? What do you think will go down when Theresa convinces her parents she has the only real solution to her troubles with the Guillermo, whom she apparently dated before she came to Salem?

Patsy looks great! I totally hope they recast Theresa. While Jen definitely made an impression, the role is easily replacable. There was nothing really definitive or trademarked that she etched onto the role that would make a recast difficult. No more deaths of legacy characters!! I dont usually offer fan fiction….but I would love for Jennifer and Brady and Theresa to reopen the Spectator…and be involved in all sorts of capers. Keep Brady and Theresa a happy acrive couple chasing down stories and being involved in capers like back in the days of Jack and Jen. Happy couples do NOT have to be boring with imaginative writing.

II disagree about Jen Liley being replaceable, she bought alot to the role of the initially naughty Theresa and gave her heart. I hope her leaving is open ended. And certainly hope if she is killed off, her death isn’t at the hands of this Guilermo, we don’t even know, it would make more dramatic sence tp be at the hands of Xander.

I always wish Kimberly was still with us full time. I hated when she had to leave and never stopped missing her. It is going to be so good to have her back even if it is for a short bit.

I want both Kimberly and Shane to return to Days full time.

I watched that show then they were so great I loved them they were a super couple we don’t have those anymore

No one stays long enough to be a super couple… or the stories are so short-lived and rushed… Bring back the supercouple!

Have Teressa simply disappear with this guy…have them on a plane that crashes in a river or a boat sinks leaving Teressa missing and presumed drowned…for a later return!!!

Glad to see they’re returning; always liked them.

Charles Shaughnessy is great–loved him on The Nanny!

Wow Patsy Pease looks amazing!!! I’d like to see them return to the show more often or full time. I hope Theresa won’t be killed off, just write her off and please don’t recast her Days!

I LOVE Charles Shaughnessy and looking forward to him returning to TV.

I’m looking forward to them returning. They were great on Days back in the day.

I haven’t been watching very much lately, just sporatickly but. I will make sure I watch the return of Kim and Shane.Always loved them, their daughter not so much.. I hopethey play she is dead, but show she isn’t. replace her.

Love Charles Shaughnessy and glad that Shane and Kim are back! Hope they will stay for a longer time than the recent visits. It is too fast and quick when they pop in and out for s short time. Would love them to stay on permanently, but that may be asking for too much since they have other commitments. Nevertheless, hope they stay on for awhile. That would make me want to watch!
