That’s a wrap for both Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey and their on-screen alter egos, Lani and Eli Grant.  Today on the July 1st episode of Days of our Lives,  the couple exited Salem paving the way for the real-life departures of Sal and Lamon who are going on to pursue other TV and film roles.

On her final airdate, Sal tweeted: “What an incredible journey these past seven years have been. To all our #Elani crew and #Days fans thank you for loving and supporting us the way you did. We will miss you much, I will miss you. Xx”

Lamon Archey also added his own tweets, sharing: “#Days fans, THANK YOU! We made a #SUPERCOUPLE & a #SUPERFAMILY #ELANI”

In story, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) had a special farewell for Eli, and Abe (James Reynolds) adopted Lani so he could be her father again, in very touching moments on the air-show.

Still the departures of Sal and Lamon, who became quite the popular duo as #Elani, will be a very big blow for the long-running NBC soap opera.  But in soap operas, you never know when your favorite actors or characters might return.

So, sad to see Lamon and Sal as Eli and Lani exit Salem today? Comment below.

For crying out loud, what is all the fuss about? EVERYONE knows they’ll be back. NOBODY leaves a soap these days and stays gone.

It’s like when the news came out recently about Peter B. renewing his contract with Y&R: what the heck else is he going to do, except maybe retire? Movies with Spielberg? Uh, no.

You never know where opportunity mt knock and it doesn’t have a number attached. Also, with the many departures from DAYS,Sal and Lamon’s exit is news.

What a classy way to go. Its been great watching a happy loving stable African American couple on tv. It was rare and so beautiful.

WOW… MY Heart, be still. I LOVE THIS FAMILY to BITS !!! Rightfully, so, as led by the magnetic James Reynolds, as Abe… he was so complete, not since Lexie, WITH Valerie !!! throw in the original Theo. whom i will always think, as Lexie son… When Lani arrived on the scene… oh it was just a pure sight, with so much love back and forth, between Father and Daughter !!!! Right? cry about this … alas, to complete this package… Lamon Archey’ Eli. WOWSAH, do not be still my heart… he was it. so there you have it. Abe, Valerie, Theo, Lani, Eli, and yeah, Julie. dang i’m going to miss her scenes with her grandson. What happy filled family could be? none. Oh, i’m going to miss my Lani

Jonah Robinson Joins the Cast of Days of our Lives as Dr. Mark Greene

If you caught last Wednesday’s June 12th episode of Days of our Lives, a new doctor came running into Horton Town Square shirtless; much to the delight and then eventual chagrin of Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart).

Enter actor Jonah Robinson who is now on the Peacock streaming soap opera in the recurring role of Dr. Mark Greene. We meet Mark when Leo tries to hit on him, only to have Mark clarify to Leo he is straight, shocking Leo that his gaydar could have been so off.

Later, Mark is at University Hospital and stepping in for Chanel’s (Raven Bowens) doctor who was called away for the day and he assures Chanel and Johnny (Carson Boatman) that their unborn baby has a strong heartbeat, and at the moment is doing fine.

During the conversation, Mark reveals he is the big brother to his little sister, Felicity (Kennedy Garcia), with whom Chanel loves when she comes to the bake shop.  There was also a little ‘wink-wink’ moment, when Johnny recalls that the doctor on the hit NBC medical drama, ER, was named Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards), to which Salem’s Mark Greene, says he was named after.

Taking to his Instagram, Robinson shared, “Meet Dr. Mark Greene. So excited to be joining @dayspeacock. It’s an honor to be @kennedyjean04 @louis_tomeo ‘s big brother.”

So, it looks like there are 3 Greene siblings.  Will we eventually meet the parents?

Before Days of our Lives, Jonah was seen on Peacock’s Daisy Jones and the Six, and has appeared in independent movies and musical theatre productions throughout his career.

Do you hope DAYS expands Jonah’s role as the Greene family becomes more entrenched in story? What are you first impressions? Comment below.

AnnaLynne McCord Previews Her Days of our Lives Debut; But is She Playing Abigail?

Next week, circle Wednesday June 19th for the on-screen debut of AnnaLynne McCord said to be a “mystery woman” on Peacock’s Days of our Lives, as Chad (Billy Flynn) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) are on the case to try to see if they can find any leads to find an alive Abigail,

McCord, who has her own soapy history having appeared in roles on TNT’s Dallas reboot and the 90210 reboot, comes to Salem with plenty of television experience in primetime.

Now that Chad was told by Clyde Weston (James Read) that Abigail is actually alive? Could McCord be playing a recast Abigail? Since it appears Marci Miller did not come back to the show to reprise her role? Or, is McCord playing a completely different character.

To prepare viewers for emergence on the DAYS canvas, AnnaLynne spoke to Soaps.com where she explained the genesis of who she is or might be playing.

Following the end to the SAG-AFTRA strike in November of 2023, the idea of McCord coming to DAYS began to percolate, and she actually started taping at DAYS in January of this year.

Citing a lot of upheaval at the time, McCord was not clear on what part she was going to be playing, “To be frank, it was very ambiguous in the beginning. Obviously, there was a writer transition and everything that was going on within the industry politically so to speak. So when I initially came on, no one really knew who I was gonna be. We were figuring it out as we went.”

However, McCord did tease, “What fans who are clearly very clever will come to figure out very early on is that a certain gentleman who is not quite so gentle by the name of Clyde Weston has his fingers in the storyline of my character. So I enter day one as ‘Mystery Woman.’”

So, do you think AnnaLynne McCord will be the new and alive Abigail Deveraux DiMera, or do you think she is playing someone brainwashed to believed to be Abigail, or she is playing a totally different character? Share your theories via the comment section below.
