REPORTS: Freddie Smith Returning To DAYS To Wrap Story! Guy Wilson OUT!

Courtesy/NBC

Courtesy/NBC

Reports from a few online outlets that have surfaced today make it look like this could be the end for Days of our Lives WilSon, literally!

First, after posting a unconfirmed rumor, Serial Scoop is now relating to its fans that Guy Wilson has departed the show and is out at the NBC soap opera.

They also go on to mention that the character of Will is going to be killed-off the canvas, and it will be happening sometime next month in October.

Meanwhile, according to Jason47’s DAYS website, Freddie Smith, who left the series as Sonny Kiriakis will be making a return next month to wrap-up his story.  This now raises speculation that Sonny might be coming back for Will’s funeral.

DAYS has not confirmed or commented on Wilson’s exit, or Smith’s return.

If these reports hold true, it would mean that the soap opera that turns 50 in November, will celebrate it without their history making duo, who had the first same-sex gay wedding between two central male characters on a daytime drama.

So do you think Guy is truly out at DAYS?  Would they murder Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) son? Do you think Freddie is coming back to say goodbye to Will? Share your thoughts below!

geez.. DOOL has more darkness & killings/murders than GH .. what’s this soap world coming to LOL! ((GH gotta get the mob back up and running!) I am getting nowhere fast trying to get into DOOL, I like it I really do, but I just can’t jam 3 soaps into my time but still tuning in 🙂 I have only seen a couple of short scenes with these two guys, no idea what they are about. Now one is gone and the other leaving, two less for me to become acquainted with. that is good, in a way. (how on… Read more »

hey Patrick ..
I give a thumbs up to anyone who has time during the day to watch 4 soaps=4 hours at a sitting lol WOW!
I watch before sleep via web and Y&R & GH total time watching both is a wee bit over an hour..

DAYS is your ”love” soap.. good for you to have a soap you love and enjoy.
It’s a really great when someone loves their soap!!!

Hi, Su.
How are you? Lol…long time no talk.
Well, now, Su. Nothing will ever compare to GH for you. That’s why you can’t really get into Days. Days had its glory days and it will again. My Gran said so..then, it must be true.
Try harder, Su. Look at it this way, I have to suffer through Sonny, Morgan, Alexis, Valerie and Sam……I still watch GH, yes? LOL. later.

Guy Wilson may be a bad actor but at least he never got behind a vehicle while intoxicated (like Freddie Smith0) causing harm to other people.

We are talking about acting ability, here. I am the first to repudiate anyone driving under the influence ( I don’t drink, nor have I ever done drugs or smoked Anything of any kind. Plus I am a mother of two small children). But, Guy Wilson is the worst actor on TV. I definitely do not condone Freddie’s behavior, and I sincerely hope he learned his lesson. By the same token, how do you know what Guy, or anyone does behind closed doors? That’s a very incongruous statement.

I think It’s a terrible decision. Will is a Horton and a Brady, Sami’s son , Marlena’s grandson it doesn’t get more of a legacy character than that on Days. Before Guy Wilson haters spew their hate I wanna say he was the most entertaining thing about the show this year. I wish him well in his career. If they insist on writing Will off why not have him leave with Sonny? Fix the damage that the last writers did to that couple. Don’t like this at all.

Reagan
Guest

I agree killing off a major legacy character is not a good idea here, especially given the diversity. If the characters need a break from the canvas, write them off for awhile. I thought the problem here had a lot more to do with writing than Guy Wilson.

this is wrong

CeeCee

I agree, Ron. I am glad Guy is leaving, in one way. The actor never took seed with me. The characterization of Will was destroyed. However, it is a big mistake to completely obliterate ‘Will’. I cheered that this Will is leaving, but I thought he’d be recast.

It would be a shame to kill off Will Horton, as he is both a Brady and a Horton. The only other characters to hold that distinction are Hope and her kids. And he was half of the first gay couple to be married on Daytime. Granted many people did not enjoy Guy Wilson’s interpretation of Will, but he is not entirely to blame. The writers changed the writing for Will after Chandler Massey left, making Will very unlikable and acting out of character. Guy did his best with the material he was given. It would be much better if… Read more »

That would be great. Camilla has come a long way since she first started on DAYS. I had heard A. Martinez (Eduardo) was returning for his “daughter’s death”, but turns out he may be Paige’s father. Does not make sense then why Paige’s last name was Larsen. I had hoped they would make Frankie Brady out to be Paige’s dad.

“And he was half of the first gay couple to be married on Daytime.”

Nitpicky, but he and Sonny were only the first male-male couple to get married on Daytime. Even though Reese was horrible and their marriage short-lived, Bianca and Reese’s nuptials in 1999 were the first.

I agree, MrsNoahDrake! There are many ways to give a break to the WilSon storyline without killing one of the history-making pair. In addition, as a 35+ year viewer of Days, I’m disgusted by the possibility of killing Will Horton. my favorite legacy character, linking the Brady & Horton families together & marrying into the Kiriakis family. While I know this is said to be confirmed, I’m hoping that, like the serial killer, whose identity we will know long before the people of Salem, Will may be thought dead, but we will know he has left (my hope w/Sonny).

NBC / Sony / Days of OUR Lives

simply let them go… explore

Carolyn

You’re right, Patrick. A story considered significant enough to be featured in the Hollywood Museum shouldn’t be thrown out the window for need of a time-out. I hope NBC / Days of Our Lives doesn’t throw their achievements away.

I’ll be mad if they kill off Will. Whatever you may think of Guy Wilson (I’m neutral) killing off Will would be very shortsighted IMO. I hope Sonny returns and he, Will & Ari leave HEA. We may need these characters in the future.

Let’s be real though, Paul was just a plot point and, as much as i like CS, i don’t care if Paul leaves or die! It was always about WilSon, as Freddie said, they are the power couple here!
Will is a legacy character ( a Horton & a Brady ), killing him would be a really stupid move. If they go threw with it and apparently they will, i’ll have to give Days the deuces! ✌️

MBmomof3

I agree John. I don’t care about Paul. I’d prefer he go. I like CS, but never liked Paul no matter how much TPTB try to connect him to the canvas. Please exit stage left. I hope WilSon is given the possibility to return. Love them.

Wow not very good news, also Kassie Depaiva got let go. I love Kassie, but she was miscast as Eve Donovan. Now that she is leaving, her role has been great. She deserves an emmy next year, for paige been murdered. Kassie got fired, the source came from daytime confedential and soap knows best. Days is getting rid of everyone. I hope Days gets renewed next year, but the ratings are not going up. And the soap is getting good now too.

Llanviewer717
Guest
Llanviewer717

I am heartbroken that Kassie is leaving. She’s a tremendous actress. Her scenes after Paige’s murder have been terrific. Eve’s tearful confession to Marlena was wonderful. And yesterday, when she threw things around her apartment and collapsed onto the floor in grief was just heartbreaking.

TPTB are being very short sighted in letting Kassie go. The tragedy of her daughter’s death is a perfect opportunity for Eve to reform.

I would not like the gay storyline to end, but it has not been a frontburner storyline in recent months. I have said before, bluntly, that I did not think it was working because of Guy Wilson taking over the role of “Will”. The energy is not the same. With Freddie Smith having left, the storyline just isn’t there at this time. We still have “Paul” (Chistopher Sean), but they could change his story to fall in love with a woman. Now with “John Black” trying to find out his true identity (again), we might also find out later that… Read more »

Oh wow. I am glad that Guy Wilson is out as Will finally. I would rather them have Will and Sonny leave town instead of killing Will.

It totally ticks me off that as soon as the “new writing team” came aboard, the gay characters were LITERALLY SWEPT off the dramatic canvas. True, the actor who portrayed Sonny left town, but they COULD have re-cast his role. The storylines between Will, Sonny, Paul and Derrick were completely left up in the air. It turns me off that now they are choosing to concentrate on older veterans, in celebration of years gone by. That’s fine but if they do not have any gay characters in town, I don’t think I will be tuning in as often. Plus, gay… Read more »

Like Guy or not– the problem was mostly w/ writing. It’s short sighted to kill him off. But didn’t Days pull this crap several years ago? Made it look like a bunch of main characters were killed off only to be alive on some Salem look alike island? So will some of these people REALLY be dead?

Yes, they did the Melaswen [New Salem] storyline several years ago. They killed off practically everyone & then had them all show up on an island, alive and well. This time, though, Corday as stated that if you die, you stay dead. Now will he change his mind if they kill off a fan favorite and fans blow a gasket & ratings go down? Who knows. I haven’t been a huge fan of Guy’s but killing off a legacy character like Will is a mistake. I really, really hope that this won’t happen & that Will will be attacked &… Read more »

I can’t believe they are getting rid of Will. Whose decision was this? This is Sami & Lucas son, he is a Horton. Whose bright idea was this, the new writers? I got use to Guy playing Will. Sonny is coming back for the funeral but he won’t be staying either. Arianna won’t have any dad’s now. Wrong move writers. Was liking the show but this is not right.

This actor was a total miscast. The other young man who played Will was a much better actor. This has happened many times throughout daytime where a strong character is recast AND the show realizes they messed it up. Does anyone else recall when they recast Lily on As the World Turns after they refused to pay Martha Byrne? Or on One Life to Live when the brought in someone to play Marty who was played by Susan Haskell or on Y and R when Maura West was playing Diane Jenkins. All 3 of these were disasters and the shows… Read more »

It’s not like Sami (and Lucas) don’t have other children to step into “the legacy” role sometime next year. Johnny and Allie should actually be older than Joey who’s now in high school.

As for the gay characters, I’d welcome a storyline for Paul that’s unique to him and comes with none of the WilSon baggage. He’s now a member of a core family too, and they can always recast the Widower Jackson at some point to play possible spoiler in whatever Paul has going on.

Jack Burke
Guest
Jack Burke

I can understand what you are saying, but how much does anyone want to bet that they will be wrapping up Paul’s character? It seems that “gay” characters are just a novelty for a while and are just intertwined here and there. In real life, gay people have roots and long-term partners so why can’t it be reflected and depicted that way in the town of Salem?

If true, this is such a short-sighted mistake. I will agree that Will is a problem, but it’s a problem because #1, tptb hastily recast the character with an actor that ultimately wasn’t suited for the part. And #2, while the writing has changed Will into an unlikeable character, I personally feel it was done to better match what Guy was already bringing to the table – his good guy Will often came off as bitchy and petulant, no matter what he was trying to portray so I feel like the writers were just trying to write to what was… Read more »

Well, for years gays have been depicted in a negative way in movies, this show at least for a very short time did portray them as every day people with regular every day problems. I AM annoyed that just because the actor who portrayed Sonny vacated the role, the writers didn’t think it was worth re-casting his role. People were critical of Guy Wilson in the role of Will (although I think he did the best he could) and so, hey, kill off another gay character (that’s the current rumor, that Will dies).

It is a bit ironic that Ken Corday just recently said something to the affect that a soap’s future lies in building the next generation. Will was a part of that next generation. Will is the ultimate legacy character, as a Horton and a Brady. I was not a fan of Guy Wilson, or the way they were writing Will, but I did not want to see the character killed off. Of course on a soap I’m never convinced anyone is really dead anymore, because so many deaths have been undone. But still– this seems like a very bad choice… Read more »

Unfortunately Mary, if I were to guess, I have a feeling that although Will is a legacy character connected to multiple families – in the eyes of tptb and the current writers, he’s probably expendable because he is a gay legacy character. Not saying they have a true issue with the gay part, but time and again, daytime – while often progressive and ahead of the curve – can also be very conservative in embracing change and expanding the possibilities of storytelling. Yes, Days has done a great job since introducing Wlll in giving the audience a well rounded picture… Read more »

The kill Will—if it happens—could spin off some dramatic storylines like a custody battle over Ariana and Sonny turning to Paul just as he has moved on with Derek…however, killing off several character is unnecessary and Ken Corday should recall that in 1980 Days cleaned house without a serial killer…Bob died but many others left town for various reasons…they couldve done that here…Eve and Paige couldve left as part of the witness protection program…Will and Sonny couldve left together to work on their marriage…Bo and Hope would find out the love isnt there anymore and Bo leaves for a job… Read more »

I have suspected that this was the case for quite some time despite Guy Wilson’s denial last month. IMO the serial murderer plot line is lazy and lacks creativity, especially since it was used on this show in the past. Paige’s murder makes sense, since she was tied to the drugs in Salem story line. And making Clyde her murderer sets him up to go to jail and never be seen again. Serena could have left and Dr Jonas could go join Doctors w/o Borders. It still would break the hearts of Eric and Nicole. And Will Horton could be… Read more »

Oh, another thing. As long as I live, I will never understand all this Guy Wilson hate.

No, he didn’t play Will as well as Chandler Massey, but what actor would have?

GW is a decent actor and a decent human being who did the best he could with the material he was given. It wasn’t his fault that the writers took Will off into cray cray land, and he’s never deserved all the venom that has been spewed his way the past 2 yrs.

I actually never liked Chandler Massey as Will. Guy Wilson made me fall in love with Will ( i have a thing for edgy/kinda crazy characters!)

What I don’t understand, Eddie, is why you put so much emphasis on the word HATE. No one hates anyone. I never ever use the word in reality. It is a very strong word….not in many of our vocabulary. Some of us strongly felt that Guy did not fit the characterization of Will. He is awful!!!! Now, I will grant the fact that I, personally, keep comparing him to Chandler. …..such a stretch. I don’t even recognize Will anymore., it does not mean I hate him….I do not know him. Cannot hate an image.

My point exactly!!! I really hate that people are down right hateful and Guy has been bullied by all these people for no reason at all!! I realize Chandler was amazing as Will and we all fell in love with him, but Guy did his best given the material. I wish Guy all the best if dool lets him go, but all the hate he has been through since taking over from Chandler is insane! Grow up, people! Loving Chandler shouldn’t mean hate Guy.

Killing off a legacy character who is a Horton and a Brady? HUGE mistake.

A slim chance at a short term ratings boost is never worth the long term damage done to a show.

I’m torn.

Will is a very well connected legacy character and a diverse one at that and could drive plenty of future story. Buuut I’m not sure how I feel about Will being immune from this type of story because the character is gay. But the character as he is now – both the writing and acting – clearly wasn’t working.

I would have compromised at off-screen coma. Have him get attacked by the killer, Sonny comes to take him to an off-screen rehab center, and then they’d have the option to recast both parts down the line.

What the hell? Well, I am one of the new viewers due to Sonny & Will. They’re gone? So am I! The rest of the show is a snooze. What’s this about Dr. Jonas? Are they dumping him, too? Seriously? Okay. I have an extra hour a day free! Idiots.

I agree with Eddie about the Guy Wilson bashing; he did a decent job with the role. Some viewers didn’t give him a chance . If the character was to remain, someone had to play the part. It’s better to get someone to play the role without constant hiring and firing. That’s what happened with the role of Billy on Young and Restless. No one pleased the viewers but Billy Miller who wanted to leave. Didn’t Chandler want to leave? Enough , already!

Everyone acting like Will is the only legacy character is getting tired. Will shouldn’t be put up there above everyone else on the show because he is lumi child or gay. I don’t feel like he is more important than other gay characters or other legacy characters. Speaking of legacy, that is exactly why his death should have more impact than Serena or others no one cares about. He shouldn’t be immune from it. The show is doing serial killer story and they need to kill note worthy characters. Will has been dead for awhile anyways. He was destroyed. I’m… Read more »

How will Abigail when she finds out that she is the underlying reason all of these people are getting killed in Salem? Serena, Paige, Will… That will be rough on Abigail! Do you think her baby will survive? Will miss Kassie DePaiva. The Eve-JJ hook-up ruined her stint in Salem. The hook-up was a bust with the fans big time! Afterwards, her story was “boxed” into the JJ-Paige-Eve fiasco and there was nowhere for that story to go. I do hope they left the door open for Eve to return in the future. Maybe then she can have a fresh… Read more »

Months ago I called it that Will would die and Sonny would come back to bury his husband, which I am sure others did as well. Freddie had said they didn’t divorce and he didn’t die so this makes sense but it also is a stupid thing to do to kill Will off. Now Ari will be raised by an ex-con, even though Nick deserved it, and no daddy since daddy Will ran off daddy Sonny. Hopefully Guy can give us a good death scene.

Hi, LeeAnn. I didn’t, LeeAnn. I never, in a million years, thought Will would exit by death. I guess I missed the boat on that one. Gabi had her punishment…not just being imprisoned, but more importantly, missing much of her baby’s formative years. Nick was out-of-control-nuts. Yet, I think TPTB could have re-invented him. Blake is a young, but formidable actor. As you say, Nick deserved to die. Gabi may be an ex-con, but she loves Ari, and is a good Mom. By the same token, look at Sami….she’s not so pristine, yet she’s rearing her kids. I find Gabi… Read more »

Exactly and heaven forbid they should let Will & Sonny be happily married.

They changed Will so drastically that I no longer recognized nor liked him. Gabi is a great mom and I am glad Ari has her but why take both her daddies away from her ? So stupid. But like you said, why should the PTB want us to be happy Oh yeah cause we are what keep them on the air by… Read more »

Corday said he didn’t recognize DAYS anymore. Was he referring to the gay storyline of Will & Sonny and later Paul? Isn’t he the EP of the show? If the ratings were up, would this have been an issue? Like everyone else, I never caught on with Guy Wilson’s interpretation of Will. Chandler Massey made it totally impossible for anyone to step into that role, because he was so dang good! Time for Mr. Corday and the rest of the world to realize that gay folks do live and breathe. With Chandler and Freddie the audience bought into the love… Read more »

Yes, the audience bought into Chandler & Freddie’s love story, but that doesn’t mean everybody loved watching them make out with each other. I’m sure a lot of older fans found it cringeworthy. And, I’ll wager, DAYS lost a lot of viewers because of it. Especially when they did the gay wedding. Will & Sonny might be popular with gays and younger women, but the wedding only brought in 1.7 in ratings. A big wedding like that would normally be a big ratings grabber. IF it were a wedding the audience really wanted to see! But, instead, the wedding day… Read more »

Maddie, I totally hear what you are saying, but why can’t there be room on the canvas for everyone? Regarding the bed scenes, they have been displayed on nighttime and daytime shows and movies for years. And yes, I agree they can be a little too explicit. But the same could be said about the violence on such shows as: Criminal Minds, All of the CSI shows and Hannibal. I will miss Will & Sonny’s love story and I applaud the previous writers for having the guts to go there.

HI, maddiehayes. I agree with you to some degree…very wise words on your part, and I do get it……I find all love scenes…even just making-out, on daytime cringeworthy….not just gay, but heterosexual, as well. Sometimes these scenes are over the top. And I am not even thirty yet. But, I do have young children. As an educator, I do not lack for words of explanation, however; it becomes quite the challenge to explain one thing without the other; if you get my drift.

Hey Lew, I agree, they don’t have to get rid of all the gay characters, just have them on less often! Give some African-American characters a chance! (like Abe and Theo, when is the last time THEY had a front-burner story?!). There are many groups who get very little representation on TV (like the disabled), but just because they’re not LOUD like GLAAD, they get no attention. And, don’t forget, if DAYS wants to lure back long-time viewers with Bo&Hope, Patch&Kayla, most of them would be put off by explicit gay shower scenes. The DAYS audience is older and more… Read more »

Hey, Brett.
I agree that Sonny and Will played by Chandler was the best couple. These guys were perfect….great fit. Not so much with Guy. I never thought the two had a good connection. And, to make it worse, the writers decided to have Will cheat on Sonny. So, we can’t really say the best gay couple ever. Gay or straight, feelings were hurt just the same. When that special bond and trust is broken between two people; more times than not, the marriage/relationship cannot be put together again.

I really hope will isn’t killed off. Maybe go off to do his writing To find himself but to kill a Horton I hope not. Will an sonny story line wasn’t the best but I understood why they did it. I just personally didn’t care for it. Just hope they leave it alone an will can come back soon.

Sad to see Will killed, but Guy killed the character long ago. I will not be sad to see Guy go. He has been awful since day 1 as Will. The writing didn’t help. I hoped they would recast Will (Is Chandler available?) and change up the writing. Maybe we find Will in the shower and it’s all been a dream. I also thought his writing career story was ridick. Wasn’t he in college and then all of a sudden magazines are clamoring for him. Didn’t make sense. Of course, Abby is some bigwig at the hospital and has some… Read more »

Your first sentence, Patrick, just got me rolling on the floor laughing. Poor Abs. Can’t say you’re wrong!! Actually, I hope TPTB NEVER saddle Chad with HER.
There’s no comparison between Abby and Theresa. The latter will outrace Abby each and every time in every way.
Chad is one gorgeous, sexy hunk who deserves the ideal counterpart. Ben is as wishy-washy as Abby, Patrick. They do deserve each other. He’s an insecure cry baby. Who wants a husband she/he would have to constantly reassure he is the only one? Tiresome. What kind of life is that?

The writers did give Will and Sonny a chance. Unfortunately, the audience did not take to Guy. He has a lackluster personality with looks to match…..a far cry from Chandler. If you remember, the fans complained endlessly about Guy. So, it was not the writers. Guy Wilson just has no charisma. He’s in the wrong profession.
However, Will Horton should not be killed off….it is wrong on all levels. It won’t be the same without him. Perhaps, there’s still hope. He should just go visit his mother for a while and then return, in due time.

I always thought Guy crushed the role. However, I really did not expect for the character to be killed off. It’s senseless. I don’t know how TPTB will explain it. This is a ridiculous move. Who knows, maybe they will rethink it? Later.

I have no problem with Guy. He had some really good scenes and not so good, just like Chandler. Yes, C had bad scenes. The truth is if there is an actor under 25, white, blond with more than 3 jr. emmys looking for a soap job, the whining fans will never be happy. Killing Will is a smart move by the show. Guy takes the blame and the show got to ‘un-gay’ itself. Let’s see if that means renewal.

If this is to be, I am disappointed. Will is a legacy character, tied to key families. That does not give the character a pass, but I am saying Willis important. As a gay man, I liked the Will storyline although was not fan of the recast, or how Will turned into someone I did not care for. Perhaps he is his mother’s son. Still, Will could grow, change and return to being a voice of reason for Salem’s younger set. I hoped Will and Sonny would be a long-running super couple of sorts, on and off through the years,… Read more »

What happened to Derrick? He was so smitten with Paul, and Will interfered and I guess it ruined Derrick’s chances…but of course, I can only ASSUME that since the new writing team completely chose to practically obliterate the gay characters. I certainly would have re-cast Sonny and kept Wilson going – I would have give Derrick (as played by Spencer Neville) something to do to utilize him further. So now, we won’t have Will, we won’t have Sonny, Paul is reduced to a mildly supporting character, and Derrick is out of the picture. Heaven forbid gay characters should become a… Read more »

If they kill off Will that will be an epic mistake by this writing regime and the show. Like or hate Will, like or hate the current actor. Will is a legacy character. Grandchild of 35 year vets, child of 20 year vets. Through Sami & Lucas we have see Will through every stage of his life. Why would anyone think it was a good idea to kill of a character with that rich history, ties to every family, and now his own standalone storylines. Will is the definition of the next generation of this show. If you hate Will… Read more »

Exactly, I hope they don’t kill off Will. Not because he’s gay, but because he’s Sami & Lucas’ son! I was hoping he’d be ‘bi’ actually, and end up in a happy family with Gabi and Arianna, even though that would make a lot of people mad, lol. But he could still struggle with same-sex attraction, and that would be an interesting story for him. And definitely get a different actor.

I think Will will be killed by the serial killer when he comes to the rescue of his grandmother Marlena. That will be the reason Sami comes back to Salem. It also explains why Sonny comes back. Ken Corday did warn that legacy characters would be killed off permanently.

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
