Days Of Our Lives

Is Bryan Dattilo finally on his way back to Days of our Lives?

So could this finally be the right time for fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) to return to the Salem fold?  For all intent and purposes it would seem the timing couldn’t be better, as over the next several months the Horton family be dealing with Will’s (Chandler Massey) coming out, as the character tries to come to terms with this within himself.

It would be interesting to see how the writers decide to write the character of Lucas in this scenario and his reaction to the news that his son, Will, is  gay. Would Lucas be the supportive dad, or the homophobe?

In any case, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Datillo was spotted earlier this week at the set of Days of our Lives at NBC Studios!

So let us know if you would be excited for a Lucas return? And if so, how would you like to see him deal with his son’s sexuality?

i would love to have him back and i would hope that the writers write lucas as a supportive father of his son become who he really is . I think the writers need to ask Bryan how he thinks the character should respond to his sons comming out also i would love if johnny turns out to be lucas’s

If the character of Lucas returns I hope it’s only for a short time to support his son. Or better still, just call.

I’m DYING for Lucas to come back to DAYS, and there is absolutely no better time than with this storyline. Lucas’s presence is essential right now, they can’t tell this story properly without his perspective. He would NOT be a homophobe though, never. He would be very supportive of his son and his sexuality.

If true, I would be SO happy to see him return! It’s been a long, long wait, I can’t wait for the confirmation. He is so needed in Salem.

DAYS has been so dark for the month of November especially the last couple of weeks. Hearing the news of Bryan’s possible return is like a ray of sunlight. There was never a character needed on any show more than Bryan is needed on DAYS right now. People need a reason to watch, a reason to care about the show since the writers are making it known that they really don’t care that much what the fans want or are interested in. I know I have never been so discouraged in DAYS in my life as I am right now.… Read more »

I think he’s needed for the Will storyline and that’s about it. Maybe he’ll bring a bride back from Hong Kong instead of rehashing Lucas/Sami version 348.

I would be delighted to have him back. I love Bryan, I love Lucas, and frankly Sami only seems to be tolerable with Lucas by her side, but I’m not opposed to him having a romantic storyline outside of Sami, I think it’s about time that someone other than Sami shows some true love for Lucas. I think it’ll be great if for the FIRST time Days treats this fan favorite and someone who’s been so loyal to Days with some respect and gives him the storyline that Lucas deserves. If the rumor is true that he is back or… Read more »

Lucas Horton will be a supportive dad, I would love for Lucas to have a new woman in his life, someone to help him and love him and his kids.
Im just sooooooo HAPPY he is on his way back to Salem. 🙂

I like Lucas and think it would be great to have him back to be supportive of Will. Just keep him away from Sami because she belongs with EJ.

I would love to see Lucas return!! And even better, it would be great to see him reunite with Sami. Sami and BoringRafe have zero chemistry. I’m so hoping they break up & having Lucas around would be perfect timing! I hope Lucas is supportive of Will. I can’t say I am happy about this storyline, but Lucas’ presence would make it more enjoyable.

You’re kidding, right? Days has needed Lucas back for a long while now…it makes no sense that Lucas would not have been there for Will’s graduation, etc. Bringing him back is the best thing Days could do at this particular time.

Its always been the right time for Lucas. He should have never been gone in the first place at least Lucas would have never left his children. I’m estatic that he may be back I just don’t want to be letdown. This show is notorious for that.

I quit watching when Bryan was let go (both times). Lucas is my favorite character and without him the entire storyline with Will seems empty. I saw Chandler’s scenes Friday and for the first time in YEARS actually anticipate seeing his scenes Monday. He knocked it out of the park. IMO if done right, Bryan and Chandler could really do some Emmy worthy scenes. Days reboot – while I did try to watch – was an epic fail in my opinion and bringing Lucas back for this storyline would be a HUGE step in the right direction. I’m still at… Read more »

i will be excited if he is back and it better be for long term
i also i would hope so that the writers will write lucas as a supportive father of his son become who he really is too

Bring Bryan Dattilo back pronto. Would love to see him in the storyline with Will. I’m a huge Lucas fan and would expect that Lucas would have a difficult time with Will being gay, but in the long run, Lucas’s love for his son will always out weigh the doubts he has about homosexuality. This could be a roll that Bryan could sink his teeth into, but please keep Galen/Rafe out of the story line.

I would love to have him back on the show too.. Have been fan to him for the past 18 years. and would make this fan very happy if Lucas comes home. and he should be there for Will and only Lucas should be there for him.. and not Rafe..””That is all that matters, cause Will is our son. And If anyone is gonna be here for you its gonna be me! If anyone is gonna help you through this, and hold your hand and be supportive, I’m gonna do it! Not him!”

100 reasons for Lucas and Bryan to come back _______________________________________ 100. Lucas is an uncle yet again; he needs to see his nephew Parker. 99. Kate has too much on her plate these days, with dealing with Vivian and patching up her marriage with Stefano. She needs someone who knows Hearth and Home (Salem) to step in and keep it going. That would be Lucas. 98. Salem needs a little laughter as everyone is going through some tough times. Bryan Dattilo’s Lucas can interject that as only Lucas can. 97 Jennifer is having a rough time and losing her heart… Read more »

The ratings have bottomed out it is clear the majority do not want EJ.. Bryan will bring viewers back that were ousted by the Ej sicko show..rapists and grief sex is a big NO ! Lucas would be very supportive of Will and love him no matter what. But the bigger issue is that in the past ..swept under the dirty Dimera rug it was written that Johnny and Ali were Not Dimera, the stem cells did NOT match to save Stefano. This has to be. and should be re-visted. Nothing could make the ratings soar higher than Lucas fighting… Read more »

yes, I really want Bryan Dattilo back on my screen. I have not watched since the day he left and won’t watch until he is back on my screen. Please bring back Bryan Dattilo, Lucas needs to be there for Will and Allie, both his children. He also needs to be declared the father of Johnny, oh the drama that would cause to have both the twins be Lucas’s, as it should be. Please bring back Bryan Dattilo as Lucas Horton and reunite the Horton family. Lucas, Sami, Allie and Johnny. That would make this Lucas, Bryan and Lumi fan… Read more »

It would be fantastic to have Byan back on the canvas. One of the best things about Days is that their major actors over the years come back time after time. I’d love to see Lucas get all uptight and outraged over Will’s coming out story. (Politcal correctness does NOT make for good daytime drama.)
BTY- Massey (Will) has been fantastic lately. I loved his big dramatic reaction to Gabby’s rejection and ending of their relationship. I hope they play out this story slowly and show all the complexities involved in the coming out process.

I’d be so beyond happy and filled with joy if Bryan returned as Lucas. He should have never been let go in the first place. He’s a Horton, hes very important to the history of the show. His son Will needs him during the dark stuff that he’s going through. His little girl Allie needs her daddy. and his Soul-Mate Sami needs him to make some sense of the MESS she’s once again created for herself. Lumi belong together like Bo & Hope, John & Marlena, Jack & Jennifer and Carrie & Austin belong together. They are part of the… Read more »

Would love to see Bryan return. The show has a void without him! Watched him for years and years. I miss the days when Lucas was in Salem. Don’t care if he’s not written with Sami. Actually at this point it’s probably best that he’s not. I just want Lucas back. Dattilo is a great actor.

I’d tune back in to see THIS return! I’d like to see Lucas really blown away by Will’s coming out. Hey, if he was perfectly fine with it, that’d be very unsoap like! Things are never that easy. I don’t want to see Lucas written as a jerk though, and there is a difference. Most of all, if Lucas returned I would tune right back out if they didn’t do right to the Will/Lucas relationship that they’ve been butchering (I’ve seen scenes, although I no longer watch the show regularly). Rafe is not the first “real father figure” Will has… Read more »

If BD comes back, there is really no need for GG – plain and simple. BD can take over the co parenting duties with sami (only) and maybe find himself some sweet loving via madison or even gabi (since dool is exploring the older man young girl crush via abby and austin, lucas should be able to dip into that honey bowl). No Sami or Carrie or even Nicole pairing, Lucas has been there and done that too many times it will be insulting and depressing to send the guy back for another round of pride-destroying “romance”. This time around… Read more »

Would be very glad to have Lucas/Bryan back. Seems the timing would be right to have him come now during the storyline of Will coming out. I would want him to be supportive perhaps, at first it would be an adjustment, but then he comes to realize that he loves his son and wants him to be happy. May sound strange, but also down the road would like to have EJ/Lucas team up on something in a ‘buddy’ way not mean or angry. In the past, EJ and Lucas actually had good chemistry and at times were funny together. Would… Read more »

First of all, I disagree with Vicky…I think Days is amazing right now. They are paying attention to vets, giving us old fashioned soap stories, and love centered ones. Last I knew, this is what fans wanted. I know this fan is very pleased with what he sees. As for Lucas coming back, heck yeah. This story cannot be told properly without his father, who I could totally see being more supportive than Sami. I am also interested in seeing how Will’s friends react namely Chad. I know when my friend came out. I wanted to support him, and I… Read more »

Breaking News

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

The post via Facebook read: “Army Veteran, Veterans Rights Activist, Film and Television Actor Kevin Dobson has passed away. He was 77 Years Old. Condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace… March 18 1943-September 6 2020.'”   Dobson was the former chairman of the organization.

During his career in primetime, Kevin was also widely known for his work on the crime show, Kojak from 1973 to 1978, playing Detective Bobby Crocker working alongside Telly Savalas.   Earlier in his TV career he appeared on: The Mod SquadEmergency! and Cannon.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors. In 2008, DAYS hired him to play Mickey Horton after two other actors did not work out replacing, the original Mickey,  John Clarke, who retired, In shorter stints, Kevin played Governor Harrison Brooks on One Life to Live in 2003. and Judge Devin Owens on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2006.

He is survived by his wife Susan and his three children, Sean Dobson, Patrick Dobson and Mariah Dobson.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

Photo: JPI

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
