Spencer Neville Back On DAYS: What Will Derrick's Return Mean For Paul & Sonny?

Last week, viewers of Days of our Lives learned that former “bellhop” Derrick (Spencer Neville) is now back on the canvas and is now an administrative assistant at University Hospital in Salem.  Is a true triangle brewing …  or, is Derrick on board to push Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Paul (Christopher Sean) closer into each other’s arms?

On last Friday’s DAYS, Sonny was shocked to see Derrick back in the picture while he and Paul were having coffee at the pub.  Derrick told Sonny that he and Paul ran into each other at the hospital.  Sonny remarked that he didn’t know they had bellhops at the hospital.  Off went Paul and Derrick to hang out, where Paul noted that Sonny seemed upset they had plans together.

Christopher Sean on Monday posted a photo from Brad Everett Young of the trio on his Instagram account commenting:  “Welcome back Derrick @spencerneville_13 to Salem on @nbcdays @nbctv ! @fmsmith319 and @mrchristophersean with Spencer in this little teaser shot by @bradley206

So, glad to see Spencer Neville back on DAYS?  Is Derrick going to give Sonny a run for his money trying to win the heart of Paul Narita?  Share your thoughts and theories in the comment section below!

The only thing I can think of is that with Derrick’s return, a love triangle will be born. Could this be the incentive to push Sonny towards Paul?
It is so crystal clear to me their feelings run deep. Love both Freddie and Chris, whom I’d love to see appear on HAWAII 5-O, again.

Good move I think I’ll start watching again.

I was very happy to see Derrick. Paul needs a story line. I’d like to see a romance between Derrick and Paul. I am not in favor of Paul and Sonny being together. That is exactly what terrified poor Will. Sonny and Paul are better off as loyal friends. Sonny does need a new love in his life. I’m hoping he will meet someone new as he becomes more involved in his family’s business.

I think he should be involved (Paul) with Derrick and of course it makes Sonny jealous (it’s pretty obvious that’s where they are going with this) – but then I think things should turn and we find out that Derrick is a little off-the-wall and feels he is only being “used” by Paul just as a tool to make Sonny sit up and take action. I think they need to give Spencer a chance to show his ACTING chops.

Well, just like the return of Aiden to drag out the pairing of Hope and Rafe, we now have the return of another filler character in Derrick to come between Sonny and Paul…Derrick will have a dark side and will do his best to keep Paul away from Sonny-maybe even try to kill him…but Paul and Sonny reunite and will get married…it will be a beautiful ceremony…and just as the start to leave in walks Will!(Chandler Massey)

Well, I HOPE that Derrick has a “dark side” to him and I hope he DOES turn out to be manipulative – at least, it would be SOMETHING – all they ever give him are monosyllabic responses and short scenes while we have ENDLESS scenes of Kayla in trouble for the 495th time with Steve rescuing her for the millionth time when they should both be investigating medicare and discussing retirement plans. I am also a little tired of John’s raspy voice and Marlena’s stoic and emotionless responses. They NEED to do something new and innovative on this show.

Sonny did seem jealous. Maybe now he should be upfront to Paul about his feelings before he looses him for good

I SO want Derrick to take a turn on the straight side and have a fling with Nicole! Talk about hot!!

Dylan

Now before any gay people attack me…dont bother. I know many people who have experimented and happily settled on being straight. Talk about something that’s never been done on daytime before!! If anyone could turn Derrick…its our gal Nicole!!

Jamesj75
Guest
Jamesj75

First, Dylan, you’re absolutely correct about Nicole being very attractive and appealing — no doubt! And the idea of a groudbreaking storyline is quite interesting. However, by your logic, maybe there could be a storyline about the attractive Derrick turning JJ Deveraux gay. I will grant you that some people are bisexual; and so, maybe meeting a certain person could tap into a part of one’s sexuality not yet addressed. But the world is filled with people who deny their own sexuality and try to conform to societal standards by marrying (and having children with) someone of the opposite sex.… Read more »

Hi, James, I am a straight woman. Have never had any interest or curiosity or urge to experiment ‘going another way’. I have always been attracted to the opposite sex . So, I am so glad that you specifically pointed out that homosexuality and/or heterosexuality is not a choice. It frustrates me to no end when people ( that I know and with whom I have had endless discussions about this subject) say that gays don’t have to be gay if they do not want to. ….that they should have the control and sense to go the ‘right way’….. that… Read more »

Awww, gee…thank you, James.
Wow, 36 years!!!!! I can only imagine how ‘inconceivable’ it probably was to ‘come out’, as it were, back then. It is no wonder gays suppressed their feelings.
There is so much I could say, James. What my friend went through…the pain!!! ….as I am sure, you did, as well.
Although, we as people, have become more tolerant, sadly, gays are still frowned upon….not to mention the snickering and cruel words.
But, it’s a new day, James. “All’s well that ends well”… with or without the scars.
Stay well…later, my friend.

Ted Martin

It certainly IS sad and dishonest – I have a ‘friend’ who married a gal after years and years of playing around with guys – does that make him now “straight”?
NOPE – just wearing a mask.
It’s not being true to one’s self to marry or be “in a relationship” just for the outward appearance of it –

Celia

Derrick is gorgeous, and your idea does spark my interest, Dylan. But, I want Nicole with Eric. They have unfinished business to resolve. LOL.
Maybe, Derrick can bring Ciera out of her morbid , Morticia Addams look, and the constant -in-the- doldrums mental state.
I would love to see this girl get a life and smile. LOL.

Hello Celia! And thanks a million for your thoughtful, empathetic reply (to me)! It comes as no surprise that you understand the issue and that you have been a supportive friend to your gay friend since you were teens. I am certain that your support and friendship have been a godsend to this friend all along. I am glad to hear that he is happy and successful. I wish more people were just as supportive and enlightened as you clearly are. Unfortunately, there exist people who are fearful and critical of what they don’t understand. There are indeed homophobes… And… Read more »

No one can “turn” someone straight, nor can someone “turn” someone gay. Now of course, on a Soap, I guess anything is possible – and as long as they give the character of Derrick something to do, that’s what’s important although I believe strongly in more storylines featuring gay characters. Why shouldn’t I? Have been watching shows featuring straight people for my entire life. That’s fine, I understand that most of the people on the show are heterosexual characters who jump from bed to bed and from relationship to relationship. Since the character of Will was “killed off” there haven’t… Read more »

That’s right, Patrick. Sometimes we can be so superficial….that’s the nature of the beast. Being human, is being flawed.
Chandler’s excruciatingly good looks and easy-going, unhurried demeanor made him an idol. Gay or straight!! Who cares. He worked for me.
Very interesting what you bring up. Why don’t we hear about/ from the actors?! Tweaks the brain, that!
Perhaps, the gods that be did not like their ‘voice’.

Yes they need to concentrate more on Sonny and Paul with Derrick somehow in the middle ( no, not physically) ~ but HONESTLY isn’t anyone else TIRED of the same old John and Marlena jazz and Patch and Kayla – I am also tired of Deimos arguing with Nicole over the same old tired storyline “so and so is the baby’s real biological father but doesn’t know it” bit. That storyline has been used since 1912, it’s so overdone and tiresome. This show has a chance to be INNOVATIVE and do something different and something reflective of today’s world.

You bet, Claudio. To me, Vivian is the female counterpart of Faison (GH). I just get a kick out of them.
I don’t care how ‘bad’ Vivian can get, there is no one else like her. Love her!!

Celia…EXACTLY!!!!! I have been such a BIG FAN of Louise Sorel ever since she played Augusta Lockridge (another GREAT character…LOL!!!!!) on Santa Barbara back in the 1980’s!!!!! Celia…oh, how I WISH that Louise aka ‘Miss Vivian’ would come back to DOOL ALREADY!!!!! I knew that I could ALWAYS count on ‘Viv’ to make LOL!!!!! Y-e-p.

Later, my friend.

I feel like the writing kind of changed direction the last two weeks – we had the somewhat anti-climatic wrap up of the trio of evil, we had Nicole somewhat out of the blue reveal Chloe’s secret to Deimos, we had Aiden suddenly become sane again and move away from Hope, and Sonny went from “no, Paul, we can’t be involved” to telling his mom he thought they were getting closer again and he was disappointed when Paul backed away from him. And I really am hoping they are taking their time to sell Paul and Sonny, so when Will… Read more »

it’s a funny world – James Scott , clearly stated .. this was it for him which makes me wonder… because most actors are gracious and willingly move on… the lag time between good story and production has to wane on some. right ? why don’t we ever hear about this ? is this why Victoria Rowell is so vocal and is banned from daytime? is this why Brenda Dickson is not respected… ( she was Jill Foster Abbott ) it’s few and far between about the comings and goings of all the daytime actors. as for Chandler Massey :… Read more »

A reply to Patrick:
Please don’t make stuff up about Chandler. His contract was unexpectedly terminated by Days after he told journalists he intended to return to college full-time once his contract ended. (That wasn’t even news, by the way – as he had said that publicly at his first Day of Days).

So glad this stud will be coming back to Days. I always loved seeing him, especially shirtless! I’d watch Days again if they had a Sonny/Paul/Derrick triangle!!

Truthfully, I’m confused by all of the excitement over this. Firstly, Spencer is very easy on the eyes, but he and Christopher Sean have zero chemistry, and he is a TERRIBLE actor. Secondly, by bringing him back, it implies that there are no other gay people in town for Paul to meet. I know Salem is somewhat small, but recycling this character that was a dud in the first place instead of introducing someone new and dynamic is a disappointing choice.

I thought Spencer did well with the small role he had before.

Nothing to say about this character but Have to say I was horribly offended by Days writers today with the dismissal of Deimos actions toward kidnapping torture of Bo. It was disgusting to see history so disrespected all done to prop a character that frankly is not taking off! Deimos needs to be written off. In addition to this 100% disrespect of history & relationships the story of Deimos and his women is another affront. After Trump the last thing we needed was a man declaring women are there to provide him with an incubator and everything is just HIS… Read more »

It was a nice surprise to see Derrick back. I actually saw his name in the credits a few episodes before, but at least it wasn’t leaked in the press months before, like some other characters. I wish Days would put Spencer Neville (Derrick) on contract. Hes just what the doctor ordered to spice things up between Sonny and Paul. Also, they could make him part of a new family, give him a sibling and parents or a mother that could become romantically involved with Roman. Salem needs a new family, as most everybody in the show are related by… Read more »

The only thing is unfortunately Fay was killed off last time she came back to Salem. I can’t remember the circumstances, but I think it involved EJ and the fake Rafe.

I just hope, and this is probably wishful thinking, that they give this fine young actor SOMETHING TO DO – let him be involved with Paul, only to be rejected by Paul (in favor of Sonny) and let the actor show what he can do, acting wise. Let him scream at Paul saying “what did you think I was? A thing? Something to just arouse the jealous side of Sonny? I’m a human being with feelings” = some depth! He’s a very good actor, but he’s always used as furniture on this show, it’s ridiculous! Give him a storyline and… Read more »

Achievement unlocked — time for me to start watching this show again. I haven’t been able to stomach more than a few minutes of this show, once every few months just to check-in, for the past couple of years. If they bring back Chandler, I will stay a regular viewer. It is glaringly obvious that this show needs a Will/Sonny re-marriage ceremony — only this time done correctly, with the correct actor playing Will — the way it could have been done the first time. My fear is that they will simply waste these actors’ talents on useless drivel, while… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
