Terrell Ransom Jr. is Playing ‘Faux Theo’; What Do You Think of DAYS Latest Plot Twist?


Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, brought to light more of Nurse Whitley’s (Kim Coles) heinous plan.  In it, Jerry Prentiss (the returning Terrell Ransom Jr.) is being blackmailed to pretend to be amnesiac Abe Carver’s (James Reynolds) son, Theo!

The thing of it is, and as every longtime DAYS viewers know, Ransom played Abe and Lexie’s son, Theo when he was a young boy; prior to the character being SORAS’d and portrayed by Kyler Pettis and Cameron Johnson.

In the story, Prentiss is an out of work actor who needs some cash, so he agrees to go along with Whitley’s plan.  She needs him to pretend he is Abe’s son, and to keep him company to help him feel like he is right at home. Naughty Nurse Whitley is already pretending to be Abe’s wife, Paulina.


Meanwhile, Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) is on the case of the disappearance of his father-in-law. When Jerry, pretending-to-be Theo, tries to make small talk with Abe, suddenly Abe needs help to get up as he has a headache and needs to lay down. Next, Abe has a flashback of using a cane for his wedding day in a scene with the real (current) Theo, Cameron Johnson.

Now, in the present, a shook Abe looks horrified. Is he realizing that Jerry is not Theo? Elsewhere, Nurse Whitley is at the Salem PD in the interrogation room with Eli.  When he has to leave for a moment, she looks at Abe’s missing person’s photo and determines she has no way out but to kill him.

What did you think of Days of our Lives latest casting stunt and plot twist? Clever to enlist Terrell Ransom Jr. to come back to the series to impersonate Theo? Is this storyline troubling you as a form of elder abuse? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

This storyline has long ago worn out any welcome it might have had.
Whenever “faux” is used to describe a plotline, you know it’s tedious.
This is actually an elder abuse storyline, so for that reason alone,
I don’t like it.

Not to mention it’s the second such injury to the same elderly character within one year.

Ironically enough, this was even implied in the scene itself… when Abe has the flashback to Theo giving him a new cane… which he needed after his previous head injury!

In real life, I can’t imagine a 70 something mortal would be doing very well after surviving two such injuries in such a relatively short time.

Thanks for the backup, Satan, as well as your other great points!

I agree it’s terrible. It’s gone on to long. What happened to the cameras in the hospital. Ridiculous. Writers are making Rafe out to be an idiot and he doesn’t deserve it. He’s a great actor

Absolutely, Alice! And you’re so right about the way Rafe is treated. General Hospital has treated its police force the same way for decades. But Rafe is also a perennial doormat in his personal life as well. Galen is a great actor.

Not interesting anymore, to much going on,I have been watching for years and now I’m losing interest just too much going and nothing getting solved,

What is the reason for nurse Whitley’s behavior?? I’ve watched days for years and it’s getting crazy. Too much happening with nothing being resolved (good or bad) I really want the Abe story line to make sense. Eric n Nicole shd b together.Days really shd gt the show back on point. Remember those of us who have been around for years. Let’s have stories that mke sense.

This story BITES for many reasons! Please end it soon.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.
