DAYS Billy Flynn Reveals When Chad DiMera Returns To Salem He's A Changed Man!

Courtesy/TwitterBFlynn

From the look and the sounds of it, when Chad DiMera re-enters the canvas on Days of our Lives on the Thursday September 12th episode of the NBC soap, he will have quite the edge!  There will also be something quite different in Chad since Billy Flynn will debut in the role once played by the very popular Casey Deidrick!

Flynn chatted with The Wrap to share his take on the character of the youngest of the DiMera men (sans Johnny), and previewed what’s to come immediately when Chad returns to Salem! Here are a few excerpts below!

Billy on the changes he is bringing to the role of Chad:  “Well, he got shot and he left, and he’s been spending all this time with Stefano. Who, you give Stefano 10 minutes with any one of his children, and he can pretty much eradicate any goodness that person has. But he spent a lot of time with him, and he finally embraced his name, which the old Chad was kind of in the process of doing, but he was having a hard time doing it. EJ was a big mentor to him at the time. When he left and he was with Stefano, I think he found himself. He got used to the power, he saw what the name could do. He was away from everything in Salem that was sort of making him … he had a whole lot of girl drama when he left, and I feel like getting away from that he was able to focus on himself. So he comes back more of a man, a strong DiMera. And in the first episode when he comes in, he sort of shows that in a really big way by taking on his brother.”

Billy on where Chad’s loyalties now lie: ” We kind of find out where Chad’s loyalties lie through the first two weeks of the journey, which are pretty much to himself now. The way I look at it, much like Stefano, everything’s kind of a chess game. With Chad coming back, everything is a chess game, and everyone in Salem is a pawn. He’s going to use anybody he absolutely can. He’s come back in the picture and he’s ready to assert his place as a prominent member of the DiMera family.”

So, looks like Chad will be the next EJ of the DiMera Clan, especially with the impending on-screen exit of James Scott (EJ)! Are you looking forward to an empowered Chad?  Let us know!

I see Chad as the new E.J.,…Abigail as the new Sami…Ben as the new Lucas…yes, itll be a wuv twiangle…lol…Chad will be more aggresive and will partner with Stephano in destroying Kate and getting back Dimera Enterprises!…maybe Theresa will get involved with Chad after a brief breakup with Brady…whatever really happens im looking forward to Chad’s return!!!

I would think the news of EJ and Abagail being splashed all over the press could set up some good tension between EJ and Chad.

This sounds amazing. We need a Stefano 2.0 in Salem. Ej waffled back and fourth too often.

I’m excited about Billy tackling the role of Chad, and hope to find a stronger Chad return to the canvas. I’m excited about this right now; I’m ready to see Billy tackle the role and join the DAYS family!

With EJ leaving a new Dimera is needed, but I don’t see him with Abigail or would peg her as the new Sami– I think Theresa would be a better match for a Chad with an edge.

I agree with you about Theresa…i too wrote a possible Chad/Theresa pairing…dont know why i said Abigail as the next Sami…i guess i thought she’d develop an edge after all that had happen to her…after sleeping on it and reading your comments i decided we dont need another bad girl in Salem when we already have someone like Theresa to take over as the new Sami…she’ll fit the part perfectly!!!

I always thought it was odd that as popular as Casey was in the role, they always seemed to prefer him being a supporting character and certainly never really let him embrace his last name. He flirted more with it towards the end of his time on the show, but seemed like a last hurrah for him. So i’m very interested to see how this version of Chad steps into the Dimera legacy.

Will Abby be the “new” Sami? Or if in fact Melanie comes back, will she be the “new” Sami?

Sounds good. I’m glad they’re having Chad embrace his DiMera roots.

Sorry you feel that way about John Black. Unfortunately you’re not seeing this character at his finest. John Black was like the Luke Spencer of Days– He was an interesting complex character, his love story with Marlena was the one of the greatest relationships on soaps. He was one of the most central characters to the show, until he aged and they dumped him. Now they just bring him back when they need him, as a shadows of his former glory. The way the show has dealt with John in recent years, I think your wish will be granted and you won’t see him around too much, even if he comes out of his coma.

You need to watch some backstories on youtube, etc and learn who the characters are and – more importantly – should be. John Black is an icon of the show with an incredibly rich and complex history. I’m looking forward to him waking up and to BlackMagic2014. John & Marlena should be set up as the cornerstone couple of Days.

Chad, the cad? If so, welcome home!

There is only one EJ DiMera and only one James Scott-both are irreplaceable. EJ became a very popular character in spite of the writing and because of James Scott’s talent, not because his last name was DiMera. I knew this was what Days was attempting to do with the recast and it’s a mistake in my opinion. Whatever, I’m out when James’ last episode airs.

I’m just so happy that they recast the character of Chad Dimera. I never was a fan of the original (?)-I can’t remember his name. DOOL has come full force in the last few years. While I was growing up and in high school, there were a lot of unbelievable storylines, too many twists and turns, crimes never being solved, etc., etc. Now, the show is back to focusing on the core characters, legacy families, and (mostly) believable storylines. One thing I could do without-nuWill. I have to fast forward all of his scenes. He’s just too nauseating. The typecasting with nuWill and Clyde are awful. I do adore Eileen Davidson. So happy that Kristen Dimera is back in Salem!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
