Look for the return of Sal Stowers on-air beginning next week on Days of our Lives.  That is when Lani pops back up on the canvas.  As fans of the NBC soap opera know, a year ago Stowers was let-go from the series rather suddenly.  But she was happy to learn that she was indeed being asked to come back.

If anyone needs a little refresher course, Lani is the on-screen daughter of Abe Carver (James Reynolds), and she previously was a cop at the Salem PD.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Stowers teased that this time out she will have a slightly different take on her soap opera alter-ego:”I wanted to approach her differently and bring a boldness to Lani, showing her as strong.”

She elaborated, “I’m so passionate about Lani. I’ve been working hard and I’m excited to see what the fans thinks this time around.”

So how will Lani link up to the current story airing on DAYS? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I truly wish her well.

she was making inroads… and it is always heartwarming and refreshing when a family of color is featured… plus they have a nice cohesive knit… and gell. add in Valerie.. and you’ve got some serious knock…. TIME TO REEL.

I’ve been so happy of late… for James Reynolds

since the passing of Lex…. gosh darned it.

Carver Clan relish ( Abe / Lani / Theo ) PLUS Valerie… with her own son on the horizon ? hope it’s true that her son is a Banning

4 solid actors… NICE

Always glad to see James Reynolds on screen. Maybe Lani can calm Theo’s butt down over his distrust /dislike of Valerie. Big sister advise.

@Mollie : you made me laugh

“…Maybe Lani can calm Theo’s butt down over his distrust /dislike of Valerie. ”

I realized not too long ago… it’s rare to see a father/son relationship….

perhaps, as in real life… I’ve always championed… mother/child relationships.

so… just like… whom I miss… Aiden/Chase… that Abe and Theo… are given
REEL time to explore their lot in life…

Thank you @DAYS for bringing to the forefront… fathers and sons

I hope they give her a better story line. She was so good on the AMC reboot, she deserves a chance to show what she’s got. Yay!

I definitely agree with you CTwildheart. Sal was very good in the online All My Children. I had never seen her before that and was so impressed by her performance. I’m crossing my fingers that the good folks at Days will actually use her talent this time round.

This is good news. The writing for Lani was terrible the first time around, that’s why I think she didn’t work. But if they’re bringing her back with a goal, a direction, and as a stronger and better developed character, I think she’ll shine. Sal Stowers is a great actress, and if she’s given good material, she will own the character and story. Plus, I like the added attention that Abe is getting now, after years of being criminally underused by writing regime after writing regime.

It is good when they utilize a vet and good actor like James Reynolds…glad they brought back Valerie too-she has so much history to the show and a connection to the Hortons when Val dated David-maybe they had a child who will soon come to town and stir up things…maybe a son who gets involved with Lani?

Valerie did have David’s son, Jimmy! It’s a matter of DAYS before he hits Salem! He’s being played by Lamon Archey who was on Y&R.

YAY! Lani is back! I really do hope that they actually utilize her character this time around. I really liked Lani and Shawn D. Now that Shawn D. isn’t on contract, I say Lani should be free to mix and mingle. I think she’d be a good match with Chad, Brady, or even Eric since he’s coming back, too! Just don’t waste her time by having her work at the police station 24/7! How boring! She needs to have a love life that’s actually played out on screen this time!

I reckon she’ll be paired with Vals son. At first I thought he might be a teen, but she told Julie he was working, so could be in his 20s. Her and Shawn d would have been good, but the then writers mucked that story by making Lani a little predatory.

I hope she’s not sex crazed like she was last time around.

I also wish they weren’t bringing Lani back. I think there are too many storylines as is.

I also hope she’s not JJ’s one-night stand. If she is, I hope she’s not pregnant. A girl like Lani wouldn’t let that happen.

Lani and JJ knew each other before the one-night stand so it wouldn’t be Lani.

I love Sal Stowers and she was great on the re-boot of AMC – I hope that the writers at Days of our Lives give her character something to do this time around – the problem with this show isn’t really the dramatic capabilites of the actors, it’s the atrocious writing and montonous storylines.
