Could DAYS Be Luring Darin Brooks Back to Salem?

There has been a big buzz on Twitter within the last 24 hours that former fan favorite and Daytime Emmy winner, Darin Brooks (Ex-Max) may actually be considering coming back to reprise his role on Days of our Lives!

Darin took to his Twitter account and posted a very simple, yet juicy, and cryptic message stating, “To DAYS or not to DAYS…that is the question… ;)”

DAYS fans know that Max was Caroline and Shawn Brady’s adopted son, and when Rachel Melvin (Ex-Chelsea) and Darin both decided to leave the series, the character of Max went to London to be with his gal.  More recently, Brooks starred in Spike TV’s comedy series Blue Mountain State.

So soapers, would you like to see Darin back on DAYS?  And if so, who should he be romantically paired with?

Will he be integral? Will his character matter? There seems to be a revolving door at the Salem boundary… in for a bit, the out quickly… I came to DAYS only after my AMC, ATWT and OLTL fell to cancellation and dang if I am having the hardest time finding my way in that soap town. I do like that Chandler Massey and his Will-and-Sonny storyline. Well done, although I could do without the Gabi pregnancy twist.

I agree. Bringing him back for the sake of bringing him back is meaningless. There are more than enough recurring characters to write story for as it is.

I would love to see Max return!!! I really loved his spunk and charm!

I came back to Days because Matt, Patrick, Christie, Dee & Drake returned. I didn’t come back for the actors I didn’t during my eight year hiatus from the show. I’m already bored so if DAYS continues to bring back people during that period and ignore actors I LIKE – uh,hum Kristian Alfonso has Zero storyline – then I just walk away again. Days needs serious improving …

I am pretty sure Hope is supposed to be getting more story soon (no idea what but I’ll wait to see). Also I love that Marlene, John, and Kristen are front and center again!

By “story” I hope that means she’s the main character and not wandering around Town Square dispensing advice. K.Alfonso is one of the reasons I still watch. I do like the Kristen/John/Brady/Marlena stuff. It’s the rest of the show that is bothering me. The continuity, and the poor storytelling. Love Will & Sonny but this pregnancy storyline is already bothering me since Will should stand up to Nick. By having Will tell Sonny and Adrienne finding out? A lot more exciting than what it is now. Jennifer and Daniel are extremely boring!!! How I miss Matt Ashford! So many of… Read more »

NOPE .. .Just concentrate on better writing and you will get viewers.. DAYS wants viewer so bad that they bring back old actors and they get spike in ratings but we disappear due to BAD and BORING storylines.

The storylines recently have been AMAZING. The only BAD and BORING storyline is Gabi’s pregnancy. You must be watching another series I am not.

Ratings also show that GH is good, and truthfully, it’s horrible. LOL. Once again, no clue what show you’re watching because DAYS has been AMAZING!

Absolutely!! They tricked everyone by bringing favorites back (MATT A.) and then pulled the plug on them as soon as they got a few viewers.

Good storytelling always wins out in the end!

I think he would bring in the younger audience.

I never watched Days of our Lives when Darin was on the series. But I think bringing his character back into the fold to create a new dynamic for a lot of the teen demographic in Salem. And if Chelsea returned to town, which I do not want, they should recast the role! I’d love to see a reunion with Abigail, as I feel as if Darin and Kate Mansi would have amazing chemistry together!

He should be with Abby. The ratings will rise if he returns, fans love him.

Only if Max really fled to London because he’s gay, and he comes back to make a play for Will. Otherwise- yawn, bore, no thanks.

Now that would be good!

But isn’t he Will’s relative?

Maybe he could come back for an episode and then go hang out with Bo and never be seen…Would cut down on the Budget ….

I see no reason to bring him back although I do love Darin Brooks.

Nope, we don’t need him back. We don’t need more younger actors on the show. We need established ones to get storylines.

Yes, come back Max. I like Max and Jennifer together.

Love Max Brady!!! Love Max & Abigail!!! Max Brady is the love of Abby’s life and it would be great to see him return back to the show! MABBY was awesome and so cute! And Darin Brooks is such a good actor! Darin would be great with Kate Mansi, just as he was with Ashley Benson (original Abby, whose now on Pretty Little Liars). Darin & Kate Mansi (Abby) would be great on-screen together, they would have some great and appropriate chemistry and is the right age for each other, it would be great watching the two of them bring… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
