Gloria Loring Returning to Days of our Lives

It looks like many beloved faces may be coming back to Days of our Lives to help us say goodbye to Doug Williams played by the late Bill Hayes.

Although unconfirmed why she is back, Gloria Loring (ex-Liz Chandler) is making a return to Days of our Lives. The news came from Deidre Hall (Marlena) during her visit to The Locher Room.

With Stephen Schnetzer revealing last week he is returning for a couple episodes as Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) brother, Steve Olson, it makes sense why Loring could be back on set as well.

DAYS fans recall Liz was on-screen in Salem from 1980-1986 and was romantically involved with Don Craig (Jed Allan) and Joe Gallison (Neil Curtis). In addition, Liz was the ex-wife of Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis).

Loring, who is well-known for her singing, performed at Doug’s Place on numerous occasions when her DAYS alter-ego took to the stage and worked with Bill Hayes.

If these returns (and more to be revealed) turn up to say goodbye to Doug Williams, Days of our Lives fans will really need the hankies.

Looking forward to seeing Gloria again on DAYS? Comment below.

Thiat s when DAYS was a classy soap. Great storytelling and actors. I miss those days.


Couldn’t agree more!

I’ve missed Liz for years!

WOW, never thought she would be back .Now how about the son Doug had that was raised by Robert ? This should be a great and well deserved tribute.

Agreed. I said the same thing.

Loved Gloria Loring. My wish list for Doug’s goodbye. Mike Horton (Original Michael T. Weiss), Jennifer Horton (Original Missy Reeves), Mellssa Horton ( Original Lisa Trusel), Sandy Horton, Kristan Alonso, Peter Reckell, Victoria Konefal,. It will be tearjeaker for sure.

I agree with all your returns. But I think Wesley Eure or Roark Critchlow as Mike Horton. Michael T Weiss joined the show a year after Bill and Susan exited in 1984. I don’t think he had much interaction with Bill. Sadly Heather North who played Sandy in the 1970s passed away in 2015.

Pamela Roylance, who played Sandy in the 1980s, is still around.

I agree Wesley Ure is the original Mike Horton.

They sure didn’t go way out for Victor!!!That’s a shame!!!! He should have been recognized more than he was!!.

Clearly she’s back for Doug’s funeral. Considering Don Craig’s been completely disappeared from history and Neil Curtis only mentioned occasionally in passing to remind us that Sarah is not biologically a Horton, I doubt Liz will be discussing her own past history in Salem all that much. She might catch up with Tony, since he and Anna will most likely be around for the funeral as well, though they seem to be on less recently. And Liz will probably sing at the funeral, since that’s what she’s most remembered for.

While long forgotten characters like Liz & Steve Olson putting appearances for the funeral are a good thing, I sincerely hope they are putting some effort into bringing back some crucial characters for the event, and for the overall health of the show. I mean, for Hell’s sake, can you even imagine Bo & Hope NOT being around for her father’s funeral (and their kids too, of course)

Love Gloria Loring, she is a wonderful actress and singer. Loved her hit song, friends and lovers with Carl Anderson. Looking forward to return as Liz.❤️

I was not watching at that time but her being involved with those three great, handsome actors, how luck could a gal get?

I can’t wait!!!!

WOW. Gloria is my idol, I have Not watched Days since she left but will have to watch now for her comeback
Her biggest Australian fan

Absolutely the right move!

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Eric Says Goodbye to Baby Jude

The Monday, May 27th of Peacock’s Days of our Lives, picked right back up for the emotional payoff of Nicole (Arianne Zucker) finally getting her biological son, Jude, back in her arms and learning it from Eric (Greg Vaughan).

As the episode began, Eric (with Jude in tow) is at the front door of the DiMera mansion. Eric recounts Sloan’s (Jessica Serfaty) confession. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) says she knew from the first time she held Jude that this was her child. She says a parent knows deep in their soul. Eric looks at her with tears in his eyes, as he thinks Jude is now EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) biological son. That’s a lie into itself and EJ is covering the truth of that along with Sloan.

Eric goes on to explain that Sloan even rigged the DNA results, telling the couple that they can check for themselves with a new DNA test, but this is their baby. Once inside the living room, Eric apologizes to Nicole for what Sloan put her though. Nicole says EJ was a victim too.  She turns to EJ and insists that Sloan be arrested. He tells her there is plenty of time for that. She reiterates, “That bitch stole my baby!” But, EJ is not about to do anything about it.


Eric vows he will make Sloan pay for all of her lies and deceit. Nicole asks Eric if he would like to hold Jude one more time before he leaves. Eric tells Jude he will love him more than he will ever know.

As tears stream down his face, he returns Jude to Nicole. She tells he can come over anytime to see the baby. Eric thinks it’s best for Jude to bond with his new family. Holly (Ashley Puzemis) comes in on all this and is filled-in on Jude’s “parentage.” Outside, Eric continues to falls apart.


However, after getting a call from Rafe (Galen Gering), they meet outside Eric’s apartment door. When they enter, the place is a torn up and there is no sign of Sloan. All that they find is a necklace, Eric gave her for Mother’s Day.Eric realized she took off, knowing she could be caught for her crimes. Meanwhile, back the DiMeras, an overcome Nicole is in tears that she actually has her baby back.

Now, what? Will EJ try to bond with Jude or not bond with Jude since he is knows Eric is the biological father? Will Sloan eventually get arrested? What did you think of the performance of Greg Vaughan and Arianne Zucker? Let us know via the comment section below. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s conversation with the Ari and Greg  from five months back where they talk about the baby switch storyline and more.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: Nicole Gets Her Baby Back; Then Hauls Off and Decks Sloan

This week on Days of our Lives starts, what looks to be the next and final leg of the baby Jude, baby switch saga, and all of its deceptions. As viewers saw on last Friday’s episode of the Peacock streaming soap opera, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) told Eric (Greg Vaughan) that Jude is actually Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and EJ’s (Dan Feuerriegel) baby. Of course, that’s a half-truth as the bio-dad is Eric.

Trapped and in cahoots now with EJ, Sloan had to confess what she did to Eric. At the cliffhanger, Eric show up at EJ’s door with Jude in tow. In tears, he tells Nicole this is her baby, and hands it to her. What will go down when the show picks back up on Memorial Day with an all-new episode?

Eric doesn’t know he is the father, but EJ does. EJ also saw Nicole kiss Eric. He is going to do everything he can to keep the truth from coming out in an effort to keep his marriage in tact.

However, how long can EJ and Sloan keep this major secret? Leo (Greg Rikaart) and Dimitri (Peter Porte) are very much alive. Will one of them blow the final whistle on them? Right, Lady Whistleblower? Will Nicole and Eric learning they are the true parents of Jude, be the impetus for Nicole leaving town perhaps with Eric, since we know Arianne Zucker’s last episode of DAYS is set to air July 29th? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile in the latest promo for this week’s DAYS, Nicole and EJ introduce “their” baby to Holly (Ashley Puzemis), while Rafe (Galen Gering) confronts Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) who is playing dumb in all of this. Rafe asks her, “Are you saying you know nothing about the baby switch?” Melinda pretends she is completely shocked, saying, “Did you say baby switch?”

In the moment you’ve been waiting for, harkening back to when Nicole stole Sami’s (Alison Sweeneybaby for months, and the two finally had a showdown which saw Sami delivering bitch-slaps to Nicole, Sloan comes to the DiMera mansion to see Nicole.  Then, Nicole screams that she lost she lost six months with her son because of all of her lies. Next, Nicole hauls off and punches Sloan.  Elsewhere, Eric grabs Leo by his shirt collar, which will be interesting to see how much Leo fesses up on what he knows about the baby switch.

Watch the DAYS preview below.

Now let us know, are you happy to see Nicole get her baby back? Are you frustrated that the story is still going on and now its Eric who is the one in the dark, along with Nicole that he is Jude’s baby daddy? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
