Well, it’s about time! I was just watching the other day thinking, Kayla needs a story and would like Patch to return and pick up Stephanie and come back together. True, Tripp is his son, Patch needs to help raise his son better. It was all quite too much when Tripp came onto the scene and they killed off his mother and then as revenge he went after Kayla….so, now Tripp is “the way too nice guy”…and he needs structure in his life and priorities of his own. Tripp goes from being with Ciara, rebounding to crazy Claire and he is in a “relationship” with her yet, offers to marry Hailey. WTF! If my boyfriend asked me to step aside to help out a friend in a “fake” marriage – I would not be the boyfriend to go along with that. Tripp needs Patch is my point, he can be on the cusp to becoming a real man with a real sense of purpose, he’s established now in Salem and played by a good actor. He needs story and happy that the return of Patch is on the way. Steve coming back with Stephanie or a new Joey would facilitate actually story for Kayla. Right now, she’s going from University hospital to Bayview. And….we want to see the union with his brother Jack. We’ll get that but Jack may not be the old Jack just soon. If Eve is out of story for a while, it may take Adrienne, Patch and Jennifer & JJ to help Jack find his way back to his authentic self. So, the return of Patch is much needed and it is about time. Totally missed Stephen Nichols presence.

It’s times like this that I really hate Days having a 6.66 month tape delay, because Steve needs to be back in Salem NOW helping his little brother Jack pull his head out of his rectal cavity, and get him away from that Abomination falsely calling itself “Eve”.

This is great news but since DAYS tapes almost 6 months in advance, we won’t see Patch back on our screens until late September. I never understood why the show is as far ahead in taping. That’s always bothered me.

I’ve seen this guy..
Why would he wear a pirate patch when he could have plastic surgery and an artificial eye?

He could absolutely look normal–

I see it as too stupid, being a pirate guy, and not taking care of it. LOL

Believe it or not, they actually lost the patch and gave him a glass eye for a while back in the latter years of his first run on the show.

The fans hated it, so they created some medical excuse of the eye socket being damaged and unable to hold a glass eye, and presto – the patch was back!

Now on the other horn, when they killed his good eye and replaced it with a bionic implant, I’m not sure why they couldn’t have installed two of them. Even if reconstructive bone surgery would have been required for the socket.

Not that bionic eyes are really a thing yet, but I can guess the excuse there was that after 30 years or so without an eye in that socket, there would be no optic nerve to attach it to…. seems like a plausible explanation to me, but I’m a Devil, not a doctor, so don’t quote me on that!

Thanks for the info, Satan
I did not know he has worn a patch for 30 years!!
That was nasty to write him as a one-eyed man (hmm why’d they that)

naww I’d never quote the devil LOL 🙂
heeeyy my Lucifer sings, and swoons me!

Guys
Iam so used to the patch, I could care less, but I wish he’d do something with his damn hair. I also hope as Satan said, that he can straighten out his brother, and get away from that witch Eve, and (sorry) send her Satan’s way.

Clearly, su, you do not have the emotional involvement with the Patch (and the Patch and Kayla) story and the relationship between the two actors. We long-time viewers cannot remove (nor do we wish to!) themselves from this emotional involvement. Simply put: we want always to see these two professional actors (and friends) to continue their unforgettable story line and interaction.

Hi Nancy..

Hey su!
I confess! 🙂 Guilty as charged!
Their love story is a “sweet” one!

Best news I’ve heard lately! Never should have been off the canvas at all. Of course, unite him with his “sweetness.” Best two characters on the show. They play so very well together and care so much about the integrity of their characters. Welcome home, Stephen–and Patch! 🙂

This is great news for DOOL fans. Once again, the fans have had to practically boycott the show before the powers that be listened. There was no reason for Kayla to keep drifting around in Salem without Steve. There are so many possibilities with Steve’s return.

I would love to see Joey and Stephanie brought back to the show and get rid of some of the storylines that are not working. The ratings are reflecting that fans are NOT taking to the Rex/Eric/Sarah storyline. Some of the fans are no longer recognizable, especially Hope. I was reading on another site that Hope was named Most Annoying Character and Most Boring Couple with Rafe. Make the corrections needed to restore some of these legendary characters. PLEASE no more Ciara kidnappings or held hostage (three times?), no more Marlena on her deathbed (Twice in six months?), drop the Will brain tumor storyline (boring), the Haley illegal immigration storyline and mayor’s race is not an escape from reality. If we want to hear about these topics, we will watch CNN.

Loved him as Stefan Cassadine on GH. Back when GH was riveting in the 90’s. Now, it’s lackluster, boring.

Iam sure he will be welcome anywhere. I was kind of hoping he’d return to GC as Devon’s bio dad, in his time of need

Wise call! Hope they don’t give him a big story and then forget about him, as some are prone to do.

I have not been this happy in a long time. Hearing that Stephen is coming back to #Days just made my day, month, and year! I can’t thank #Days enough for recognizing that Patch is a critical part of it’s canvas and listened to their fans. Michael, please send a personal thank you to Ken for making us so happy. I am just grateful and delighted Stephen agreed to return so the #Stayla love story can continue. Please let Stephen decide to host his own part of the #Doolapp. I am also excited to see him on #MBsKitchen. Hopefully that can happen before he airs as Steve. :). Thank you!

Will we now ever know just how the lives of Empire’s Lucious  (Terrence Howard) and Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

That means, as first announced during last night’s episode of Empire via voice-over: “Get ready for the shocking final three episodes of ‘Empire,’”  that reveal let viewers of Empire know there was change in plans.”  Now, the shortened season and series finale end on FOX on April 21st.

Reports also note that episode 19 was partially shot and that footage of that unfinished episode will be cut into the finale.

As to what happens with the character of Jamal Lyon played by Jussie Smollett, who everyone knows ran into significant trouble with the law; on last reports executives said he would not be back for the final episodes of the series, although there has still have been mentions of the character throughout season 6.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
