Add another Hernandez returning to Salem with news today that Galen Gering will once again reprise and continue on in his role of Rafe Hernandez on NBC’s Days of our Lives.

This comes after word that Gering was written-out of the show after his contract expired, and was supposed to wind up his run on-screen at the end of August.  Well, now, according to EW.com, it looks like Rafe’s stay away from Salem will be brief, since DAYS begins taping all-new episodes the week of August 31st.

DAYS had enough episodes banked through the middle of October when the coronavirus pandemic shutdown television production, so the sudser is the last of the four soaps to come back from the extended halt.

Gering has played Rafe for over since 2008. He took to Twitter once the news broke of his return to DAYS sharing simply, “I’m back.”

So excited to hear Galen is back on DAYS? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

This show should be renamed Coming&Goings or Revolving Doors of our Lives, but seriously if I was a fan,(I was as a teen), I would be frustrated with the never-ending coming and goings, its exhausting just like RC writing.

Hopefully Will & Sonny. Followed a little later by Hope. They should all be back in time for that Xmas tree ceremony at the Horton house…. assuming the set still exists, since nobody seems to live there anymore. Hell, half the people living in the DiMera mansion right now are Hortons! Stefano’s doing cartwheels down here when he thinks about that, believe me!

Of all the actors they’ve let go in the last few months, the one returning is the only one I’m happy to see leave. The character of Rafe has overstayed his welcome, and hasn’t had much in the way of story recently. I’d much rather see Will, Sonny, Eric and Hope stick around.

Nothing against Galen but wish the character would stay gone & take John & Marlena & the half of Salem related to them with him. Show could try focusing on the Johnsons & newer characters on show.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
