In story, Theo is being sent to South Africa for a year to be part of a clinical trial for his medical condition sustained following JJ shooting him and his surgery.

Kyler Pettis took this opportunity to share a heartfelt post on his time at DAYS and on the airing of his final episode by stating: “I am so filled with emotion after watching the final scenes I was able to play as Theo Carver.  I want to take this time to thank everyone at Days for opening up the door to some amazing, embarrassing, and hard work that I was able to experience being on set with some of the hardest working actors in the business. I want to thank all the fans that have shown me love, especially the acknowledgement if the honest portrayal I worked hard on as a young adult on the autistic spectrum. I was honored to represent you and your approval of me means more than you know. And lastly, I want to thank the man Theo himself for showing me that no matter what life throws at you, your heart and spirit are the strongest tools we have on this journey we call life.  I thank you.  I love you. Goodnight!”

watching the NEW Ciera Alice and Theo HUG it out today… made me cry

and MARVEL

@ how the SORAS TEEN SET is so complete… Tripp / Theo / Claire / Ciera

who would have thought all this would be?

I LIKEN Theo in the same context as Will . BOTH are so well liked valued and looked after.

as I’ve posted… WHO CARES WHAT AN INNOCENT IMMATURE MISTAKE… kYLER MADE… ( RUMOUR MILL IN HIS PUTTING ON INTERNET… FUTURE STORY )

it was a mistake… 6 months of airtime is just that… so long ago… the show is so good.. and it’s a pity it’s come down to this.

no one cares ??? short memory here.. because all I care about is how complete this show is.

if he wanted to stay employed @DAYS. I say get over it. what’s the real story ?

Mr Kyler Pettis . Take care.. wow did you deliver

What mistake? He wants to stay? Fill the rest of us in, please.

Kyler’s message is sweet. So sorry he’s gone for a year or more.

shucks… i’m still venting and sorry to see him going… IF… what was posted a while back.. that he mistakenly posted on twitter … pictures of him sharing what was upcoming on the show. leaking information… I understand is hush hush.

nevertheless… when you have a complete gell of actors who comprise a core family… and it’s dismantled…

I just fell in love with .. how it started… the SORAS TEEN Theo and his dad… just took me. this father and son duo… against the world… from the time their mother and wife.. Lexie past on. that still smarts . LOVE HER.

who knows if a recast is on the horizon. I am so taken with James Reynolds… that not having his and Lexie son on the show… seems wrong

for Abe : whew! he’s got Lani, Valerie and Eli. you just have to laugh and beam he’s going to be a grandfather

for Kayla and Steve : they will eventually be truly sharing Tripp. once we see scenes with Kayla and Tripp “bonding” again. it should happen

so to see TWO CORE FAMILAL.. without children

????

these 4 are the bomb… BESTEST @expressing LOVE

Abe / Valerie / Kayla / Steve (patch)

Patch ! his vision loss and weak spells… are making me cry and scared.

I recall not so long ago.. it was rumoured that they were even going to bring back another son for Justin and Adrienne…. ????

i’m loving this show

I am very sorry to see Kyler Pettis leave the show. I think he did an excellent job playing Theo. TPTB made a big mistake letting him go. I am going to miss him terribly. The very best of luck in the future Kyler.

I will miss Theo so, so much……
And Kyler….I can sense you speak from the heart by your articulate writing.
Thank you for giving us, the fans, your all and your best.
You are, not only, a talented actor, but one of the best looking guys on Daytime TV.
Good luck in all your endeavors, in the hopes of seeing you return to your rightful place….DOOL. Bonne Chance!!

I hope they dont recast him…he was the only one from the teen set who was good in his role…

Celia

I know, Jimmy….. Kyler had it all….looks, talent, and mostly professionalism.
It will feel so weird if he is recast.
Now that he’s gone, I hope Claire will soon follow….. that’s one character I would not mind being recast.

I love Theo and will truly miss his character. Kyler is the best actor Days had in that young group of players. I wish that Chad and Andre could have said farewell on his last day.

I’m going to miss him, he was terrific from his first day. Good luck to him.

I thought KP did an amazing job as Theo. A legacy character with functioning autism. I’m not sure of the circumstances surrounding Kyler’s departure but I wish the actor many roles going forward. The character seems to be returning eventually, based on the episode, so if it is a recast hopefully the next individual will do it justice, as well.

Was it his choice to leave or Days?

I will miss him. He was my favorite DOOL character. He did a fantastic job as Theo.

He was/is terrific and DOOL’s loss. Hope they will hire him back soon.

I’m glad to see that Theo got to have goodbye scenes with so many characters.I also think the show will bring Theo back eventually since he is Abe’s son and Stefano’s grandson which makes him a DiMera.So i wouldn’t be surprised if Theo is back by the Summer whether it’s Kyler playing him or a new actor.

I’m new to the show and fell in love with the character even in his coma! LOL…his beautiful, sensitive, sweet portrayal of this guy with a heart–of-gold, keen sensitivity and vulnerability was powerful and enough to grab this new fan in in a matter of days.

Shame that they let him go. I’m hopeful that “time heals all wounds” will not only have Theo walking again but in Kyler’s shoes upon his return!

Please bring him to B&B as the new Zende. This man is FINE!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
