DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lani Returns as Salem Grieves Abe’s ‘Death’; But Clues are Piling Up as All is Not What it Seems


On Tuesday’s July 4th episode of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, Sal Stowers made her highly-anticipated return as Lani Price Grant.  Today in Salem, is supposed to be the homegoing service for the presumed dead Abe Carver (James Reynolds), Lani’s adoptive and beloved father.

At this point, Abe is believed to have drowned in the water at the pier.  Lani, who was able to arrange for a short release from prison, and Eli (Lamon Archey) make their way to Theo’s (Cameron Johnson) hotel room, so Lani can be with her brother, who is grieving terribly for Abe.  Theo also reminds Eli and Lani that today is their wedding anniversary. Lani reveals the duo have decided not to celebrate and to concentrate on Abe’s memorial.

Meanwhile, John (Drake Hogestyn) has dream about Abe, who says to him, “Goodbye old friend.” Later, John has a flashback of his beloved friend on the docks at a key point in John’s life when he found out he was not the real Roman Brady. He later shares this with Marlena (Deidre Hall).


On to Nurse Whitley King (Kim Coles) and her plot … she is reading a newspaper when she sees Abe’s photo on the front page. Abe shows up in in his wheelchair, wondering why she looks so upset. She says it’s a story of a man who drowned on the docks. He wants to read the story for himself.  Whitley talks away around it, by saying it could trigger another seizure for him.

Since she is getting to leave for work, Abe says it’s very lonely for him when she’s gone. (Remember, he ‘thinks’ she’s Paulina)  Abe asks, “Couldn’t Theo come by and hang out?” Whitley shocks Abe telling him his son went back to South Africa. He can’t believe his son wouldn’t come and say goodbye.  He then asks about Chanel (Raven Bowens). Whitley says Chanel would love to see her “step-pop pop,” but she has no time right now and very busy at work.


Whitley gives him some solace by telling him he has got to watch the next part of the soap opera Body and Soul because one of the premiere soap bitches, Lorna debuts.  When the show plays, it’s revealed Kate (Lauren Koslow) is Lorna sipping her signature champagne.

Paulina (Jackée Harry) is at home with Chanel mourning Abe, when Lani and Eli show up.  Paulina is so glad to see her daughter. After they touch base, Lani wants to go to the police station to look at the evidence in Abe’s case.  Once there, Lani looks around her old stomping grounds and Elani share a moment of remembrance and love between then on their anniversary.


Once in the interrogation and looking at the file of evidence, including DNA, Lani recalls wanting Abe to her bio-dad when she first came to Salem with a touching flashback. In the present day, she sees a photo of Jerry (Terrell Ransom Jr.) that looks like a headshot. Eli explains Jerry is an actor. Lani looks curious and quite suspicious.

Meanwhile, at Whitley’s apartment, Abe watches Body and Soul and sees Jerry “faux Theo” portraying a character in a scene with Lorna.  A confused Abe says out loud, “Theo?”


John and Steve, who are having a hard time grasping that Abe is really gone, get some feedback from Marlena, that perhaps John’s dream about Abe was not about Abe saying ‘goodbye’ but a message that something is not right.  At the end of the episode, Whitley knocks on Paulina’s front door and the two come face-to-face. 

Will we finally get some answers at to what this plot is all about as suspicions mount? Did you enjoy seeing Sal Stowers back on-screen with Lamon Archey? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Can Ken Corday and Ron Carlivatti kill Lani off or just divorce Eli and Lani he’s so boring with her I agree with someone’s comment they should pair him with his past love Stephanie Johnson because Eli would be more exciting that way.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.
