Fantastic news this afternoon out of Salem! Soap Opera Digest is reporting that James Scott (EJ Dimera) has reached a deal with the powers-that-be at Days of our Lives and has signed a new deal to stay with the show for another year till April 2013!

This should come as great news to James’s fans who were concerned that the popular actor might decide to bolt, when for many, he is one of the main reasons they tune-in to DAYS. We are glad to hear that Salem will have mayoral candidate, EJ Dimera and James along for some time to come!

Thanks Michael! James is the one and the only reason. He’s the real deal, Is totally hot, gorgeous, talented and he has got amazing skills as an actor. He has got the whole package! Glad to hear James is staying looking forward to it.

So true sara! “Pretty boys” in soaps are a dime a dozen but with James Scott we get the breath-takingly handsome looks and exceptional talent! That my friends would qualify JAMES SCOTT as THE TOTAL PACKAGE!

I don’t like EJ. At all. But his leaving would have derailed the new writers’ plans. I think James will leave for good in April 2013, and he should—EJ is a terrible character and has overstayed his welcome. It sickens me that THIS is what happened to Susan Banks’ son. 🙁

Fantastic news!!! James Scott is the reason I started watching Days again in 2007 after a 10 year break from the show!!! James has taken material written for EJ that would have desroyed the character had he been portrayed by a lesser actor. James is special and I hope tptb at DOOL, NBC and Sony realize just how much and make sure EJ gets a well written and compelling story. TEAM EJAMES!!!!!! 🙂

He is the reason I tune in. James’ performances made these past two years worth watching. He is a talented actor, a handsome man, and a true gentleman. I’m so glad Days realized his value. They didn’t need to lose one of their most popular actors when they are struggling to address the shambles the last creative team left the show in.

I am so happy to hear this news. I just hope the contract is a good one for James. The new writers will now get a chance to show how EJ could be written well. That would be a pleasant change.

This is great news!

James Scott is an outstanding actor and an important asset at Days. He has been one of the few consistently excellent performers through some of the worst writing and nonsensical storylines I’ve ever seen on this show. Also, he has turned a character who was probably intended to be a one-dimensional villain into a multi-dimensional character of great depth who evokes a range of emotions in the viewer and always engages us in EJ’s story. It is clear that James never rests on his laurels and that, as the consumate professional that he is, works very hard to constantly improve himself as an actor and provide us, the viewers, with a glimpse at yet another aspect of EJ’s character. Now that is compelling, character-driven television.

I am pleased that TPTB at Days realize that James portrayal of EJ is such an asset to the show and that James has so many fans who tune in to Days in whole or in part because he brings something to the show that no one else can. I’m looking forward to exciting, compelling, and original storylines for James to bring us more of this great character in the future.

Thank you.

I am so happy James is stay at Days. He’s one of the best they have and an very talented actor. I’m looking forward to more EJ and James on Days. Now, I want good storytelling and good writing for James. James is my reason for watching Days!!

It’s too bad. I was so hoping he would finally be let go. Since this show started revolving around EJ it has been awful, and driven hundreds of thousands of viewers away. If he must stay, I hope he will be seriously backburner-ed and used minimally. I stopped watching the show when I could no longer stand him being on EVERY SINGLE DAY. I was hoping to come back to the show for the re-set, but if the new writers continue to overuse this overrated actor and TERRIBLE character, I won’t be able to come back completely, even for my returning favorites.

The show was bad for reasons other than James Scott. Sara Bibel credited him with saving the show. And his two nominations for Best Actor contradict your assessment of his acting ability. I doubt the show will miss your lack of viewership.

Fantastic news! Hoping the new writers can bring this character back to what it should be so that a wonderful EJ and Sami romance can be written.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
