At Saturday’s Day of Days 2018 event celebrating the 53rd anniversary of Days of our Lives, fans in attendance were treated to a preview of what’s to come in Salem before the clock strikes midnight and we usher in 2019 on the Jumbo-tron at Universal Citywalk in Universal City, California.

From romance, including a long-awaited moment for #Cin fans between Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), to stunning secrets including an emotional moment between Paul (Christopher Sean) and Will (Chandler Massey), to Sonny (Freddie Smith) finding out just what Kate (Lauren Koslow) did to him, to more “who framed who” moments, to Abigail, now played by the returning Kate Mansi going on the offense to find evidence against Gabi (Camila Banus), who has been gas-lighting her, to Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) stepping into help her in a big way.

Then, we find Rafe (Galen Gering) walking into a situation where he finds his wife, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) with Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini), and battles lines being drawn for the custody of Nicole’s daughter, Holly.

Next, ‘before the years ends the promo’ touts a surprise return that will spell trouble for WilSon, a new girl in town that becomes involved in JJ’s (Casey Moss) orbit, and as the voice-over announce says, “Hold on to your party hats!”  It’s the highly-anticipated return of Matt Ashford as Jack Deveraux.

Check out the sneak preview of “All the Drama to Come Before the end of the Year On DAYS” below.  Then, let us know us which storyline, return, or moment are you looking forward to watching most in the comment section below!

Ben and Cierra STILL – light up w/magic… be still my heart on this found twosome. be still … quality acting

I know.. that current story.. has Tripp “blackmailing” or planting evidence to the contrary … I certainly want Tripp on the canvas… and do not want him getting in trouble. it’s obvious to see it’s Ben and Cierra Alice being featured… has MORE romance. which isn’t an understatement for Tripp by any stretch… the writers simply have to write for this enigmatic young man… let’s get Tripp and Kayla BONDING… when Tripp was “assisting” Kayla making rounds long ago… there was a great bonding chemistry with this newfound “stepmom” and “stepson” go their… with the absence of “Patch” this would flesh out their characters . Stephen Nichols is still a head scratcher … when where how and why

soooooo – what is going on with; – the return – Judith Chapman

the upper echelon of dynasty reign supreme : Halloween screen time of things to come? Angelica is not dead after all ? whenever you get a reining queen to surface take hold and walk

fasten your seat belt(s)

thought I read a blip in SOD that Ms. Judith had to keep mum about her “visit” and that she certainly is amenable to “WORKING”

STARS search this out

Overall, this winter preview is super awesome. Am loving how the stories are unfolding, and wished more soaps could do two-minute previews like this. However, due to shooting, I doubt it’s possible. I’m going to miss Marci Miller as Abigail; she’s been cast perfectly in the role, and while it is nice to see Kate Mansi back for a short-period, I’d still love to see Miller return down the line! Also, could do without Matthew Ashford’s return as Jack… would rather see Mark Valley or Steve Wilder return, though, the latter likely wouldn’t due to his issues.

Also.. not loving the pairing of Brady and Chloe; Brady could do and has done so much better than Chloe. She needs to go, ASAP! But, Sarah and Eric? That’s a pairing I am so getting behind! Sad to see Paul leave, because he and Will ultimately belonged together! I hate Julie, but love that she is smacking the s**t out of Gabi, who needs to permanently go back to prison, and never come out again!

Day is the besta show around,no I didnt spell it wrong that is how my late grandma use to talk she would say that Days is the besta one.Holy mackerel I cannot wait to see this,sorry to see Marci Gone.Maybe she will Pop up in a Lifetime movie ,who knows I just saw the woman who played (for the life of me I dont remember her name Nicole on one and I believe she is in a new one next Sat or it could be Sunday but her husband plays a real creep.I wonder if Vivian will come back.I knew that Leo wasn’t dead .This will make Days ratings rise for sure.I love Ben give the man a chance I know he killed people but he wasnt in his right mind.Perhaps if he was on medication he wouldnt have done all of those bad things. Believe me take it from someone who knows not taking your head pills can really mess you up.Before I do go Happy Thanksgivng to everyone.

That’s one heck of an Identity Disorder, turning Abigail into Kate Mansi!

Gotta love the wide-eyed looks of disbelief on Sonny & Will above. They appear to be in shock from a recent election… (too soon?).

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
