The beautiful and talented Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane) after many rumors, and stops and starts with renewed talks with Days of our Lives, is now on her way back to the NBC soap, officially!

Word came down exclusively today via TV Guide with an interview with the fan favorite on her return.  What we do know is that Nadia will not be on air till January 4th 2013, but will return to work in September! So how will the show deal with Chloe’s now hooker past? We hear her return will be centered around her son, Parker!  Here are a few excerpts from the conversation with TVG below!

Nadia on how Chloe was made a call-girl at the end of her last run on DAYS:  “Chloe is so near and dear to my heart and even I would have written her off after that storyline. She was spiraling out of control and the fans had stopped being able to recognize the character. I couldn’t recognize her, either! A lot of what made Chloe so lovable — her integrity, her fun, her wit — was gone and I don’t blame anyone for dropping her from the show. There wasn’t a whole lot left for her to do but, at the same time, I never felt like her story was done. There was no huge, climactic ending for her. She just went off to be with her child and sing in a nightclub in Chicago…which is, like, 45 minutes from Salem.”

Nadia on what will happen when Chloe returns:  “I have heard she’s going to come back as her old self again, the Chloe with good self-esteem, a stronger and more confident Chloe who can really stand up for herself and not be bullied. Toward the end there, she was being bullied by everyone in Salem! No more. She’s coming back a lot more mature and who knows? (Laughs) Maybe she’ll get some revenge! There are so many possibilities for the character and they’ve only told me a little bit right now because they don’t trust me with the information. It’s been very hush-hush.”

What do you think of Nadia returning to DAYS? How would you like to see Chloe integrated back into the canvas?  Who should be her love interest?  Let us know your thoughts!

I think the possibilities are endless. I would like to see her paired with Eric Brady and the dynamics it would have on her friendship with Nicole.

Plus, see how she reacts with the Dicole pairing.

That would be be interesting. I LOVE Danloe though. They were great. I hope Parker really is Daniel’s.

But they are putting Daniel back with Jennifer. Danloe was hot while it lasted though.

Days needs some ladies in that age range. With Melanie going, and Madison gone, the single, young (ish) men of Salem outnumber the ladies. I hope that she is stronger this time around. I always liked her with Brady.

How about in EJ’s direction. Visually they would be stunning and personality-wise, they would be a perfect match.

Dmitri

EJ belongs with Nicole. They would make a cute couple, but I think EJole is endgame.

Super sweet and exquisite woman with great ties to this show and nearly everyone in the daytime community. As a person, I think she is a class act to fans, peers and co-workers and someone who really appreciates her roots with daytime.

However she is not the strongest actress, always talking like she was just woken up from a deep slumber. I personally thought it was the right move to let her go back in 2011, and not because of her storyline direction (which I think, I’m the only one who didn’t think was half bad), but because I seriously needed a break from this character. Everyone fawning over her…GMAB! I don’t understand Chloe’s draw or appeal (other than looks…bombshell anyone?) and she was shoved down my throat for the 4 years she was on. I would just rather have a little longer reprieve before I had to hear the character drone on again.

I’d have supported Matt Ashford’s return, or another Horton’s return. Chloe wouldn’t have even be in my top 10!

I’m looking forward to her renewing her friendship with Nicole. She could help Brady get over his grief from losing Madison. And how about putting her back with Lucas. I would love to see Lucas with someone who thinks he hung the moon. Of course I have always loved the character of Lucas and want him to stick around this time.

Dmitri

I like this return! I’ve missed Chloe and Nicole onscreen together. Will Kinsey be returning as well?

Scott

I want her to come back as a successful, strong and confident woman. Not someone who needs a man. It was clear with her firing in 2011 that she’d be coming back and it was only a matter of time. And now she is coming back.

I hope she has Parker with her!!

Let’s see, Days dumped Matt Ashford (fan favorite), Christie Clark (fan favorite) and Sarah Brown ( a real good actress!!) to bring back boring Chloe again? Sorry, she already had her heyday and it wasn’t really memorable. Nothing against Nadia who is a beautiful girl but I’m just so tired of one dimensional actresses like Nadia and Camila Banus who hog up airtime meanwhile we lose SJB, Christie and Molly Burnett who are all talented, beautiful and fun to watch! For what? Nadia? Pass.

Jules
Jules

Yeah, in a nut shell, that’s what I was trying to say too. She’s a fan favourite, no doubt, but as far as her acting goes she just isn’t very strong.

Dmitri
Dmitri

I kind of agree, but I love Chloe and Gabi. I think CB is a good actress.

I very happy that nadia bjorlin is bringing chloe lane back to salem. Now we to bring back chelsea brady, max brady, shawn douglas, and belle. On the right track days!!

Nadia is an amazing actress.But if they’re not gonna give us the real Chloe back and if they’re gonna waste her on Daniel Jonas,,,,no thanks.Nadia ,Chloe and their fans deserve better

Daysfanforlife

Glad you don’t write the show.

Danloe and baby Parker all the way!

imane Assi

No thanks.Daniel is a heartless hypocritical egocentric scumbag.I could never root for him with Chloe.She’s too good for him.And he sure doesn’t deserve a second chance with her.The real Chloe wouldn’t give Daniel a 2nd look or thought.So if they’re actually bringing the real Chloe back,they can’t waste her on worthless Daniel.But these writers are the same who destroyed so many characters ,including Chloe, in order to prop their pets:Daniel and Melanie.So I seriously doubt the real Chloe is back.Daniel’s doormat Chloe is back if they’re wasting her on that scumbag.

Again, I’m glad you aren’t writing the show.

Love Chloe and Daniel together and nothing will change that. Especially not your venom.

Thrilled to hear Nadia is back at Days & I HOPE the writers don’t revisit hooker Chloe. 🙂

Chloe

I’m very happy to see her come back! This is another good move that has been made since the new writers took over [others being getting rid of Madison & JerkJack & his silliness, bringing back Stefano & once again making EJ Stefano’s son].

the brother
the brother

EJ will be busy with his mom soon so no go for him and Chloe

Rafe will be back with Sami in mere minutes…in fact possibly after the next commercial break 🙂

Nicole will be paired with Eric since Dr Dan will be pining over his daughter going to be with Carly and calling Maggie “MOM” every 5 seconds. He will have to comfort a grieving Jen and try to get into her bed asap.

Lucas’ Days are numbered, therefore Chloe will have to go back to Brady and Victor will chastize him for being lured back with that “slut”, aka his Uncle Phil’s baby mama.

Like sands thru the hourglass….wait, where the hell is Billie?

Dmitri
Dmitri

I think EJ and Nicole will eventually get baxk together, so I can’t see how they would be a couple anyway.

Ces

Luckily I was on a 9 year hiatus from Days and missed the Chloe as a hooker storyline (say what?) and I have no idea who these other characters are? Chelsey? Max? (I remember him as a kid with Frankie), horrible Belle recast, grown up Stephanie, yawn …… if I see all these insignificant characters pop up again while pushing away ACTORS I like and want to watch, my next hiatus might be permanent. I’m a longtime fan since 82′ so pointless characters and bad acting aren’t things I want to watch. Hope the new writers don’t get too happy bringing back boring characters.

Blake

I’m glad Chloe is coming back. I agree she can be paired with Brady or EJ (or both! lol)

Dmitri

I’m fine with her being paired with Brady, but EJole are meant to be.

I hope they’ll put her back in Brady’s orbit, this time, that was her best relationship, bar none.

If they are going to bring her back, they should utilize her strength which besides her incredible beauty (what man in Salem or any where for that matter would not want to be with her), is her beautiful singing voice. They should figure out a story line to tap into her singing, and have her sing on the show. Maybe they could bring back a kind of Doug’s place where Julie and Doug would sing. Maybe this is old school, but what would be wrong with a little light entertainment and singing now and then. Seems they always revert back to dark story lines.

Love that Nadia is coming back.
Hope Chloe and Daniel reunite love them together.
I really hope that Parker is really Daniel’s son as he should be
since he was named after Daniel ‘s mom.

I am delighted she is coming back, although I didn’t see her show history long enough to know which male would be the best fit. Brady sounds like a good one though. 🙂

my love story for Days ofOur Lives… I would love to see Brady and Chloe together. Nicole will be trying to seduce Father Eric. Rafe and Hope can be partners and lovers. EJ and Sami will eventually end up together. Perhaps Stefano might find it in his heart to forgive Kate. Daniel and Jennifer rekindle, and if Abe returns to Salem, he and Kayla will hook up.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Chad and Abby Share An Emotional Goodbye And Leave Salem Hitched

On Thursday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, tears were shed not only by the characters on the screen, but by the audience at home … plenty of them if you have been checking out social media since this installment aired.  For in it, viewers had to say goodbye to Chad (Billy Flynn) and Abby (Kate Mansi) as they left Salem to start their new life with their children in Paris.

However, before they make their exit, Chabby fans finally get to see their favorite duo tie the knot in a heartfelt and touching ceremony right in the Horton family living room.  While it was spur of the moment, it could not have been more poignant.  Leave it to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) to officially preside over the nuptials, JJ (Casey Moss) to play his guitar while his sister walked down the living room aisle to her man, and even Jack (Matt Ashford) showed up to do the right thing to be there for his daughter.

What would a Chabby wedding be without personally written vows, right?  Abigail tells Chad: “When we first fell in love, God, we had no idea of what we were getting ourselves into.  They say that when you meet someone and fall in love, you’re drawn to them, because they have something you need and we’re here today because I need you.  I need your courage, your faith, and love.  I’m so beyond grateful at a second chance with you and a family with our beautiful children. You are the love of my life, Chad. There’s nothing I want more than to spend the rest of my days with you.”

In a touching moment, Chad is overcome with tears and expresses to Abigail; “You’ve always fought for your health, and for us, and I’m in awe of the woman I fell in love with. I’ll cherish you. I will protect you. I’m yours, and I’ll never doubt you again, because a love like ours really does only come once in a life.”

They exchange rings and Julie pronounces them husband and wife.  But this happy moment is also bittersweet when Chad says, “We hate to marry and run.”  Chabby has a plane to catch to take them to Paris.   Chad looks around the room and at all the special people in his life, and tells the group how special they all are to him.  In that scene, it definitely gave the feels that it was also Billy Flynn saying farewell to his castmates.

Of course … before they leave town Chad and Abby visit Stefan (Tyler Christopher) and Gabi(Camila Banus)is there.  They give them the news that they are leaving for France and are married.  In a moment alone between Abby and Stefan, he apologizes to her. Stefan notes how much he loved the other part of her (Gabby with a “Y”) and knows that she loved him too.  Abby says, “I know”.  Meanwhile, Chad says goodbye to the portrait of his father, Stefano vowing to be back someday.  After Chabby exit the DiMera mansion, Stefan has a meltdown and throws the chest board while Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) walks in on the scene.

And finally, in the 10-hankie moment beautifully played by Billy Flynn, Kate Mansi and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), Chad and Abby at the Horton house to say their final goodbyes to Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie, Jack, JJ, and Jennifer.  Abigail tells her mother to never give up on her dad.  Chad is in tears as Jennifer tells him she will miss him,  He says, “I will miss you, too”.

It was in that moment that any of us that have ever had to say goodbye to our families and move far away from them, or come back to visit them and then leave again, can relate.  Saying goodbye is often heartbreaking when you leave behind the ones you love.  But, Chad and Abby got their happy ending … for now. However,t his is a soap opera, so you never know how long happiness will last, or when they might be back in Salem.

Kudos to the performances of Billy Flynn, so raw and real, and Kate Mansi playing Abigail with depth and dignity to wrap up the story.

So, what did you think of the Chabby goodbye? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

THIS WEEK: Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi Exit DAYS As Chabby Says Their “I Do’s” In Heart-tugging Moments

By now, Days of our Lives fans have learned that this week marks the end of the run, for now, of Billy Flynn and Kate Mansi as Chad and Abby.  But before they exit look for wedding bells to ring as Chabby remarries.

When Marci Miller decided to depart the role of Abigail, Kate Mansi returned to the role she played before Miller to finish the arc, which would have potentially left Abby to leave town and Chad to be without her, since Mansi signed on to just complete the storyline,

DAYS head writer Ron Carlivati told Soap Opera Digest  (in latest issue on newsstands now) the thought process of having the duo leave together: “While it was kind of agonizing to make the decision that Chad will exit the canvas with Abigail, I decided that was the best thing for the couple, it was the best thing for the fans and it was the best thing for the show. The way that they exit is very, very open-ended. It’s not like someone is going to die. They leave happy and the door is completely open for them to come back. As much as I’m sure some people will be sad to see them go, I think they’ll be happy to see them go together. It just seemed so unfair to not give them a happy ending. And I just didn’t see how that happy ending would work if Chad stayed in Salem and Abigail left.”   He added: “Obviously, if the time is right, the story is right, and the people are available, they’ll be back.”

Looks like we all need to get out the hankies after checking out the latest NBC promo for Chad and Abby’s wedding and farewell.  You can watch it below.  Then let us know if you are sad to see Billy and Kate exit DAYS, and if you hope they will be back sooner than later via the comment section below.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

The beloved actor reveals that at one point he thought Genie Francis (Laura, GH) might be coming back to reprise the role, but now that it’s Judith Chapman he is having a great time acting opposite her.  In addition, being a true historian of DAYS, Drake takes the listeners on some fun facts that they may not have remembered. Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.
