DAYS Bryan Dattilo talks about his return and reveals Lucas to bed Sami!



Bryan Dattilo is on his way back to the airwaves as Lucas Horton next week on Days of our Lives!  Circle February 29th to be exact.  The timing couldn’t be more perfect as both Will’s and Sami’s life are shattered with the EJ-Sami grief-sex encounter now exposed to her hubby, Rafe and Will kissing a guy for the first time in a drunken stupor!

So as his family implodes, enter Lucas who tries to deal with the fallout! And as he tells TV Guide in a brand new interview out today, look for LUMI to hit the sheets … again!

Bryan on Lucas and Sami’s tortured relationship:  “Lucas always seems to show up when Sami is at her most vulnerable.  It doesn’t take long for her to start admitting her mistakes. Like, within the first five minutes she says, ‘I slept with EJ again!  I had a moment of weakness!’  That annoys the hell out of Lucas.  He’d be fine with anybody but EJ.  But he and Sami discover they still have feelings for each other. [Laughs]  Oh, who am I kidding?  It’s all sexual tension with them.  It doesn’t take long before they’re jumping into bed!”

So soapers, would you be up for another round of LUMI? Let us know!

Not really. She needs to come clean about her feelings with EJ and THEN go from there. This denial she has over EJ is really old and boring.

I wasn’t up for them the first time. Too much brother sister vibe to me – never saw any sexual attraction at all.

Me Too!

Please NO LUMI! They’ve had their chance and fizzled. It’s time for EJAMI to reunite! EJ and Sami have the best chemistry and belong together forever!

For the love of God NO!!!!! I’ve been waiting for almost 6 years to get proper writing for EJami. Besides, EJ busted up Lumi all those years ago for a reason and Lucas should know better than to take back Sami AGAIN. It’s EJami or bust for me.

Sami regrets her encounter with EJ and she compounds that with sleeping with Lucas after telling Rafe she wanted to save their marriage? I just started watching this soap, but Sami’s relationships with everyone–including her mother and son–seem pretty screwed up. What do people like about the character of Sami? Does she have a good side too? Or is she one of those characters people like to dislike?

like you ,Im new to this and sami seems to be a troubled soul that thinks only about herself,she should start being there for will,even though he is better off talking to marlana,I hope that rafe leaves her.I f I was him I couldnt forgive and forget,it would always be on my mind what she did.if she does have a good side I have not seen it yet,started watching when all my children ended,and everything I have seen so far,she shouldnt be a mother ,will has been trying to talk to her and its like she cant see her own son crying on the inside.

Barbara, what are you doing over here commenting about this program? Second, since the lost of AMC and OLTL, I refuse to get stuck on another soap opera. I started to try, BUT I thought, I could be using my time more effectively now that it’s free’d up. I was so happy when the soaps could be viewed on, because I had long stopped tapping them when I missed them. But, trying to watch 3 shows that have missed during a work week, (3, 4 days of shows) had become all to consumming. Now that they are over, I refuse to commit to another soap, freeing up my time., and not having that burden to watch late night or on the weekends before the work week begins AND a new week of soaps starts.

This is so not necessary! Lucius must be a gluten for punishment!

I take it you mean him going to sami?Im new to dool,and I think that sami should forget about sex and pay attention to her kids ,mostly will,that poor kid has problems and all she wants to to is think about how she is hurting.does sami have any good in her ?started watching dool when I lost all my children and since then I have seen anything about her that I like and she acts like she hates everyone ,except herself .

LUMI fans have waited sence 1993 for Lucas and Saim, and his kids need him,not some other man being a part time step dad. Lucas has always loved his kids and Johhy and Sydeny too.
EJ and Nicole love each other,and they work great together,and now Nicole is going to have a baby with EJ, good for them,keep them together.
and keep LUMILY together. :))

agree. I used to love Safe and EJami, but both couplings bot boring fast, and Carrie and Rafe have sizzling chemistry. Go EJole and Go Lumi!

Add my voice to those who say it is time for EJami to get their long awaited chance. I want to see Sami own her feelings for EJ and do a lot of self reflection on what her denial has done to her, to EJ and to their children. EJ & Sami are a complex and compelling pair & the actors off the charts chemistry & connection set them so far above the rest. This is the story I am interested in seeing, it is the one that has yet to be told. Lumi had their time, they’vr moved on to be friends which is how I think they work best.

OH GOD NO Lumi! Hate it !

We are so far behind in Australia at the moment but i personally LOVED Lucas and found him and Sami together really worked well. Gosh she gets around though doesnt she LOL. Cant wait to see this character return!

your in australia?thats neat,you get days of our lives there?to bad abc/disney didnt put all my children and one life to live on like that .the abc soaps only go to canada ,interesting.well, I learned something new today.sami has been bad ,and she really should start paying attention to her kids .and forget about her love life ,at least for right now.and yes,she does get around.

Barbara, where are you at? LOL

Hi Barbara, yes I’m in Melbourne Australia. I have watched Days since I was a little kid. My mum and grandmother use to have it on when I would come home from school for lunch. I have lloved it for over 40 yrs. 🙂 At the moment I think we are about 18 myths behind you. Every year in our summer time Days gets taken off for several days through the week because of cricket! Needless to say I hate that sport lol We are currently up to victor finding Maggie in the coffin and hope in jail and sammi marrying rad with the threat of Ej taking her kids cos of her shooting him.

I f you are behind alot has happened ,and sami has messed her life up for now,I just started watching days of our lives again ,I stop watching it decades ago because the soap I liked more had been moved to another time so I gave it up ,Im back because Im sure you know our soaps have been canceled,so i cant help you because all the stories you are saying ,I never saw.,I just started in september,wow you are behind there ,can I say down under,thats neat.

seriously ,am I the only one who thinks that sami should pay more attention to her kids and forget her love life for right now,will needs help.or is she to stupid to see that.hello,your kids come first ,she had rafe and she blew it.she should go home and hug her kids .grief sex ,thats stupid.I couldnt think about that when my kid is missing.Id be out searching for my kid ,or in the emergency room because my heart would stop beating .

Please excuse spelling silly auto correct put Raf as rad doh!

I’m so over any interest I might have once had for Lumi. Been there; done that – one too many times for anything new and interesting to come out of it. I’d love to see EJ and Sami finally get together, this time for good. As far as I’m concerned, the show is wasting the best potential pairing they have. What for??? I’m losing interest fast in the show.

Nooo!!!!! Can’t stand LUMI!!!!! Worst pairing ever!!!!!

I used to be and EJami fan before the shooting-Sydnapping incident, then switched over to a fan of EJole and Safe, due to their chemistries. But now, even though I still love EJole, Safe is boring the hell outta me. I think that Lumi would be pretty nice, especially because Sami messed up Safe by having sex with EJ, and Rafe messed up by kissing Carrie. Their relationship is over, and now Carrie and Rafe have found each other. I liked Caustin before, but, like Safe, they got boring. Carrie and Rafe, or Cafe, seems like an endgame pairing, so does EJole, and so does Lumi. So I am definately TEAM LUMI!!!

Days of our Lives Reveals Newcomers Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon

On the official Days of our Lives Instagram account, a photo has appeared featuring new additions to Salem, Cherie Jimenez and Al Calderon.  The Peacock streaming soap opera is not offering up just who they are playing.

However, the smart money seems to be that Jimenez is a recast Gabi Hernandez and Calderon potentially her brother, Dario Hernandez, since the two actors are seen standing in Rafe’s (Galen Gering) kitchen.

In story, Gabi has been stuck in prison for “murdering” Li Shin. Looks like the character will be brought back on to the canvas, but will Gabi reunite with Stefan (Brandon Barash)?

If Calderon proves to be Dario that character has been off the show since 2017, when soap vet Jordi Vilasuso played the part. Dario departed Salem to avoid getting locked up in the slammer and in the process granted Abigail a divorce while in hiding.

If Jimenez looks familiar, she has been featured in roles on Pretty Little Liars,The Newsroom, NCIS, Maya and Breaking Tradition. Calderon has appeared in Walking Dead: World Beyond, and a few episodes of the soapy, The Haves and the Have Nots.

As for Camila Banus, her last day on the DAYS set was back on April 28, 2023, when she revealed she was exiting the role of Gabi, a role she made soap-famous for 13 years.

Do you think Cherie and Al are the new Gabi and Dario? If not, who do you think they are playing? Weigh-in below.

Melissa Reeves Returns to Days of our Lives

Longtime Days of our Lives star, Melissa Reeves, who has not filmed episodes with the Peacock streaming episode since 2021, is reportedly back on set and shooting story as Jennifer Horton. Reeves began her run as Jennifer back in 1985.

Melissa is taping the Thanksgiving episodes, but will also be a part of the Doug Williams memorial in honor her beloved former castmate Bill Hayes, who passed away in January at the age of 98.

According to TV Insider, Melissa had one concern in returning, in that, the role has been most recently been played by Cady McClain in her absence. Reeves expressed, “My one thing was, ‘I’m not taking this away from Cady.’ If this is Cady’s thing and she loves being here and she really loves playing this part, I don’t want to take it away from her. I’m so good either way.”

Previously, Melissa had moved to Tennessee full-time with her husband, Scott Reeves (ex-Y&R, GH, DAYS). Speaking on being back to pay tribute to Bill Hayes, Reeves shared, “I heard about Bill, which was just devastating for all of us. I was like, ‘I wonder if they’re going to do tribute shows.’”

For decades, Reeves along with Matthew Ashford (Jack) formed the Salem supercouple of Jack and Jennifer. She related that she reached out to Ashford who said to her, “Would you ever think about going back?’ to which she replied, ‘Matt, I think about Days all the time.’ Melissa added, “So I said, ‘Matt, you know if they called, I would say yes, but I haven’t heard anything.’”

Being a part of the tribute to Bill Hayes and to say goodbye to his beloved character of Doug Williams, has special significance for Melissa. She mentioned she weeped, recalling, “Of course I cried because he’s such an incredible man, but what an incredible legacy he has left behind as a man, as a father, as a grandfather, as a husband.“

So, looking forward to seeing Melissa Reeves reprise the role of Jennifer Rose Horton later this year as we say goodbye to Doug Williams and honor Bill Hayes? Comment below.
