The Young and the Restless loss is truly going to be Days of our Lives gain.  As has been confirmed, Eileen Davidson is now set to reprise the role of Kristen DiMera, and who knows who else from her many roles that came with Kristen ( Susan Banks, Sister Mary Moira, Thomas, shall we go on?).  We loved them all, and now DAYS fan will get to see Kristen’s return and the talented Davidson on the NBC soap.

Davidson chatted exclusively with The Hollywood Reporter and said, “I’m thrilled to embark on this new adventure at Days and excited to revisit Kristen and who knows who else! Not to mention my old friends in the cast and crew.”  Eileen will reprise the character she played from 1993-98 starting October 11th!

A bit of the back-story; Kristen, the foster daughter of Stefano DiMera, was presumed dead after a body matching her description was found floating in a pool. The real Kristen, however, was left on an island after being sold to a harem.

So what do you think will bring Kristen back to the fold?  And, who else would you like to see Eileen reprise? Obviously, Susan Banks, but any others?  Let us know!

JAY

WELCOME BACK MY FAVORITE OF ALL TIMES, I WAITED PATIENTLY MORE THAN TEN YEARS FOR YOU TO COME HOME, DAY AFTER DAY, MONTHS AFTER MONTHS AND YEAR AFTER YEAR. WHEN YOU LEFT Y AND R AND WENT TO B AND B IN 2007, I WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPOINTED WITH DAYS PRODUCERS FOR NOT BRINGING YOU HOME. BUT NOW, I CAN’T SAY HOW MUCH HAPPY I AM WITH YOUR CHOICE TO RETURN HOME WHERE YOU BELONG. I AM BIG Y AND R FAN, BUT I LOVE YOU AS KRISTEN DIMERA. YOU WERE MADE FOR DAYS OF OUR LIVES, YOUR BEAUTY, UR TALENT. YOU ARE TRULY A DAYS LENGEND. I AM SO HAPPY THAT ALL THE CAST OF 90’S ARE RETURNING TO DAYS, I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE ALL THEIR FACES WHEN YOU RETURN TO DAYS FOR THE FIRST AIR DATE. I AM SURE WE WILL GET GOOSE BUMPS. WELCOME BACK KRISTEN . WE LOVE YOU , DAYS OF OUR LIVES AND EILEEN DAVIDSON, TO ME MEANS ONE WORD. WELCOME HOME BACK!

Great news! I loved Kristen!!

As long as the writers don’t use it as a device to build a wedge between John and Marlena, I am all for it. I would much rather see John and Marlena working together to thwart any manipulations Kristen tries then to try and make this into a triangle story. I’d like to see Susan come back and mess with EJ though.

YEAH!!! Love Eileen Davidson.

Now we need to bring Steve (Patch) back. Not that I don’t like Tucker on Y&R, but I much prefer Patch and it was nice to see Kayla today.

I have long wondered how Kristen faired in that harem. I guess now we’ll find out. I hope Susan returns too. Since EJ is on the show, only makes sense to have Susan. I hope Stefano returns.

Def is Y&R’s loss, but thrilled Eileen is coming back to Days!

Personally I hate what Gary Tomlin does. He basically trashes couples that were successful before he arrived. Having Kayla act so out of character in leaving Steve because he actually took a job with the ISA something he always did in the past and she was fine with made me ill. Tomlin only trashes the best. His vision is not something I can tolerate. Have not liked his work on Days at all!!!!!

And this from someone who used to love this program.

Jaime

Steve Johnson is and was the BEST OF DAYS.

No thanks Tomlin, your shows I can readily dismiss

Mo

Yes, having the probs with Kayla and Steve is weird. And I always hate it when Days trashes Jack and write him off. No way would Jack act the way writers have had him act towards Jen. He wouldn’t leave her. There could be good story for Jack and Jen if they were bothered in writing it. Why not get rid of boring Cameron who doesn’t ad squat to the show?

STOKED! Been waiting for this news since the LAST TIME YR fired ED and speculation she’s return to DAYS, only for her to somehow end up on B&B for 30 seconds. Can’t wait to see ED interact with James Scott!

Jules

BOO to October though! 4 months away! The time between taping and airing is getting wider and wider. Next month, they’ll be taping Christmas!

Barbara.

I know, it is strange to tape that far ahead. I’m sure the cast and crew love it since they get long breaks (but have to tape more when they do tape).

It’s funny to see the actors that were fired still on the show months later.

Jules
Jules

I find it a little excruciating actually. Knowing months ahead that a character’s storyline is coming to an end, but having to endure them in the meantime (for better or for worse) is really hard and disruptive to my soap watching. I guess I could go spoiler free, but like I could ever stick with it lol.

Patrick

Jules…. I like that word… Excruciating….

Agonizing… to have to fret… about… the casting… the writing…

Just saying…. for better or worse, we’ll all be there… for the Premiere… Oct. 11th.

Great news!! I would mainly love to see the Susan character revived. I use to do a mean mean mean impersonation of Eileen as Susan lol 🙂 Looking forward to it , although being in Australia we are so far behind again that i might be waiting awhile!

TS

Can you get a Youtube of that impersonation and share it with all of us!

Patrick

What, is there, left, to say? Eileen Davidson, has been with us… fans, and daytime, alike, since, 1982.. She’s been honing her profession… when she first graced our “screen” – on Y&R. She even starred on Santa Barbara.. for almost 2 years. Gosh! The Actors, who starred on that show, reads like a who’s who… daytime alumni.. tour de force.

I hope DAYS… does, her justice.

i’m (LOL) remaining “vigilante”. DOOL… DON’T SCREW THIS UP!

Please, writers, with all due respect…. this is a coup that bodes well… for “many”.

As much, as, i’d like to see “Susan”… I hope they, wait on her, till, we see, how the writers are crafting Kristen’s persona. Course, for those, fans, who watched her, the first time around… with ED.. acting skill, she could say the same things…. and she’d still get laughs.

just, as, importantly, this is the best way to bring more life to John and Marlena…

I hope, DEB… a fan and poster… is right… that John… could very well, be… EJ’s father.

if you may recall… Kristen, tried… to get pregnant, with John… and when, that failed… she tried… LOL… to get Susan to impersonate HER… as Kristen… beguiling, fetching… new, hot about town… Susan… as Kristen… to bed Mr. John. This was all happening, as Kristen and Marlena, were held captive… together… by, Susan… ? was it? The best, and funniest storyline, IMO…of DAYS.

it could work, out, that they’ll tell the audience, and a mickeyed John… that he is in fact, EJ’s father… and just doesn’t remember.

Maria Arena Hack’s loss is Days’ gain.

That woman wont be happy until the show is called “Daisy Carter” and sinks to number 4 in the ratings.

Co-sign your post! Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time that Maria Arena Hack (I love your name for her, fits her perfectly LOL) has does this and it will not be the last. I’m just happy to see that Eileen Davidson is moving on and doing well.

Fairly new to DOOL. Sold into a harem. Really? I believe DOOL needs to claim some reality and maybe put aside some of this over-the-top nonsense for awhile. The best eps since I have been watching have been those dealing with the young gay man and the death of Lexie. No devil possession. No international arms dealers. No resurrections from the dead. No hazy ambiguous business conglomerates.

That was James Reilly’s doing that is when I quit watching. He is also the guy who gave us Passions which replaced my beloved Another World! I am happy for you guys who enjoyed her character to over the top for my tastes. And no I am not being Mean,mean,mean LOL I will miss her at Y&R!

Oh Yea if anyone has any of ED of YR moving back to Days’ old clips from her many portrayals and characters while on Days the last time, Please do share….I had no idea how talented Eileen is until she got to show her comedic side. She is so one dimensional on YoungRestless and of course we know that is the writer’s fault. It’s no wonder she has not won an Emmy, she is not well written for, never ever. Ok, so my grammer is terrible tonight, but you get the idea. Pull out some clips..again PLEASE.
thank you.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Paul Signs Off In Salem With Tearjerker Goodbye

As they say, “all good things must come to an end”, and on Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers watched a tear-filled and emotional goodbye as actor Christopher Sean, who played the role of Paul Narita for over four years with such dignity and grace, exited the series in his final episode.

It all comes about after Paul is heartbroken to learn, thanks to Brady (Eric Martsolf) who could not lie to him anymore, that Will is still in love with Sonny.  And after calling things off with Will and setting him “free”, Paul asks Brady to come by his apartment to inform him that he is leaving Salem.  Brady is certain that Paul will “find love again.”

Later, Paul’s dad, John Black (Drake Hogestyn), arrives and learns the heartbreaking news that Paul had decided to move back to San Francisco to be near his mom, and because there is a top-notch rehab facility to help him get back on his feet and walk again.

John asks his son: “Are you sure that you are doing all this for the right reasons?” Paul says he is not running away, but adds: “It would be hard for me to be here in Salem with Will and Sonny back together and all that. But mostly I could be with my mom, who I really, really miss, and I could be hopeful because I could probably walk again someday.”

After looking up the clinic on the internet with Brady and Paul, John concludes this is the best situation for his son.   “I need to get back on my feet again, in more ways that one,: Paul says.  When John asks when he is headed out, Paul reveals now.  An emotional John is filled with tears at having to saying goodbye to the son he never knew he had until a few years ago.

Paul says to John in a tearjerker moment: “I used to lie awake in bed thinking what kind of man my father was.  And then I met you, and I saw the way that you cherished Marlena and the way you protected your family and the way you fought for what was right.  You have surpassed every expectation I have ever had about a father.”  He tells John he is grateful for all the time they had together. John tells Paul, “I’m so proud of you,” and he tells his son to always keep that big heart of his open, and they share a touching hug.

There is then a knock at the door at Luke, the new PT comes in to whisk Paul away to San Francisco!  There seems to be an instant connection between the two, and then Luke says that he knows full-well who Paul is, “You’re one of my idols”.  Luke goes on to say that when Paul came out it gave him the strength in his own life to do the same.  We also learn Luke is single, which is not lost on Brady and Paul, and John.

As a nice button on Paul’s journey he says, “I’m not hiding anymore, and I’m not pretending to be anyone I’m not. And for that, I do owe Sonny and Will a lo.,” Luke says, “Who is Sonny and Will?” As everyone sort of chuckles, it’s time to leave for the flight and John and Brady exit with Luke, as Paul looks around the apartment one more time.

Kudos to both Christopher Sean and Drake Hogestyn for those heartfelt scenes between father and son.  How many hankies did you need while watching them? We needed five!

Christopher Sean’s Final DAYS Episode Airs Today, As He Shares Parting Thoughts: “I Was So Honored To Bring Paul Narita To Life”

Do not miss Tuesday’s November 20th episode of Days of our Lives, as it marks the final appearance of Christopher Sean in the role of Paul Narita.  How does Paul leave the canvas, exactly? Grab your hankies for an emotional goodbye.

When Sean was brought on to DAYS, not only did he get involved in what would end up being a love triangle with several iterations. but so much more than that, especially since DAYS tackled a pro athlete coming out, and a Japanese American at that, who feared he would not be accepted by his family if they knew the truth about him.  Christopher won the hearts of so many viewers and cast members at DAYS including: his longtime scene partners: Chandler Massey (Will), Freddie Smith (Sonny), and Paul’s on-screen father, Drake Hogestyn (John Black).

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”

Now that Christopher has shared his parting thoughts to DAYS fans, please share your thoughts for him in the comment section below.  Send him your well-wishes and let us know if you will miss Paul … and what was your favorite moment on-screen during the actors run on the soap.
