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! Hes is one of my all time favorite characters. It would be even better if it gave us a Lumi reunion!!

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. Bryan’s return will help so much!!

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.

Regina

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 in his way back then I’d definitely be excited!

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.

Gerri

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.

Glad he’s coming back, Days really is like it was in the early 90s when it was sooo good!

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 a loss why Bryan wasn’t brought back in September! Come on, Days! Don’t let another chance slip through your fingers! You actually have a chance at something good here!

right time for Bryan Dattilo for me was like yesterday

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 (literally). She could use the support (and possibly blood) of her brother Lucas. 96 Abby might be getting involved with a Dimera! Uncle Lucas has lots of life experience with that family to impar 95. Mother Kate needs help dodging Vivian’s wrath. 94 Brother Philip needs help learning to be a dad. 93 Cousin Nathan is dealing with the aftermath of trying to get over his true love with a poor substitute who lied to him – Lucas knows a thing or two about that. 92 Cousin Hope got beat up in prison!! Lucas could swap stories with her on that. 91 Sister Jennifer is lost without Jack, distanced from her children – Lucas could offer much needed support and understanding. 90 Since we know that Hearth and Home needs a high level executive in Hong Kong, we’re sure that Austin and Carrie are willing to take on the challenge so Lucas can be closer to their niece and nephew. Surely Lucas can do much of his job in Salem anyway, where it’s easier to touch base with the founder, Kate. 89 Son Will has been through enough without his dad around – Lucas needs to be there for his son as he is transitioning into a man. 88 Daughter Allie has been tossed around and greatly ignored, as well as traumatized over her brother’s illness – Lucas NEEDS to be present to give her some stability and love. 87 Caroline just had a stroke; it’ll take her months to fully rehabilitate. Who is going to care for Allie while Sami is tending to Johnny? Her dad can! 86 Daniel was cheated on by Chloe – Lucas should be there to remind Daniel that he shouldn’t be so high and mighty. 85 Nicole’s sister Taylor is coming back to town – Lucas was her friend back in the day. 84 On (1/24) episode, Kate told Philip that she regrets not allowing Lucas and Bill to get to know each other. Us viewers also regret that we never saw much Lucas and Bill interaction, especially since we enjoyed them together at Alice’s funeral. It would also be great to see Kate explore that part of her past if both Lucas and Bill returned to Salem. 83 EJ has gotten away with hurting Lucas family too much – it’s time for Lucas to come back and protect the ones he loves like… Read more »

Lucas should have never been gone in the first place. his children need a parent who remembers them, and cares and puts them first.

yep bring BRD/Lucas Horton back to stay till the end of Days,

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 for and winning his son from the Dimera’s !!

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 very happy!

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 long line of SUPERCOUPLES. With word that his sister is coming home, and his brother Austin came back earlier this year, Lucas needs to come back. Kate needs all her children back in Salem especially Lucas. There is still so much for Lucas to do in Salem! Please oh please say Lucas is returning. If days is really serious about turning the show back into the show we know and love then it won’t be complete till Lucas comes home! Lumi 4ever!

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 had. Lucas is and always will be. I need the writers to get this right.

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 I would like Lucas to have some sense, sensibility and smarts (which does not mean lippy, irritating and self righteous). If the writers and production intend to bring Lucas just to occupy space by making him a spineless, witless and annoying character please skip and wait until BD can be given something worth his talent and skills – we have already GG/Rafe to contend with, no need for a second serving of mediocre and terrible character development, thank you very much.

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 like to see this again.

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 did, but still wasn’t sure how to act. Now I realize its no different except he likes guys and I like girls…i hope days explores this realism

Days of our Lives Blockbuster Flash-Forward Promo: Where Are Your Favorites One-Year Later?

Every year at the annual NBC Day of Days event at Universal City, California’s CityWalk, fans in attendance are treated to the premiere of the extended and exciting promo of what’s to come in story in the weeks ahead.

But this year, the promo was even more exciting because it revealed pieces and teases of what’s happened in Salem and to your favorite characters within the one-year time jump that began on last Friday’s episode when Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) woke up out of her coma and learned from Jack (Matt Ashford) that she had been asleep for a year! And … thus begins a daytime first for a drama series.

In the DAYS November sweeps promo, viewers see that Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) have their baby and so does apparently, Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey).  Then. Jack says to Abigail (Kate Mansi) that she is her number one reporter, while Victor (John Aniston) tells Ciara (Victoria Konefal) she is the future of the family.  Elsewhere, it looks like Kate (Lauren Koslow) is waiting tables?

Meanwhile, Sonny (Freddie Smith) says “I miss him, I miss him a lot.” Who is he referring to? Clyde (James Read) is back and looks to be in an adjoining cell with his son, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson)!  Also in prison are the ladies, Hattie Adams (Deidre Hall) and none other than Eve (Kassie DePaiva)

Then, Gabi (Camila Banus) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are making out and apparently things have heated up between them, once again, and Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso) is still looming.  Will she come between John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall), and will Jennifer remember that Gina pushed her of the balcony a year ago?

Watch the promo for the time-jump below.  Then, let us know what story you are looking forward to most, and finding out how it plays out via the comment section below.
