Terrell Ransom Jr. Returns to Days of our Lives

In surprise casting news, Terrell Ransom Jr. is returning to his old stomping grounds at Days of our Lives on this week’s episodes streaming on Peacock.

DAYS viewers will recall Terrell when he played the younger Theo Carver from 2008 to 2015.  Theo is the only child of Abe Carver (James Reynolds) and his late wife, Lexie.

The character was then SORAS’d and Kyler Pettis played the young adult version. Now, Cameron Johnson plays that role.

While Johnson is back today for the Juneteenth episode of DAYS, be on the lookout for Terrell in his new role as Jerry Prentiss.

Jerry is said to be connected to Kim Cole’s manipulative character of ‘Nurse’ Whitley King.

Since his last time in Salem, Ransom has most recently appeared on the TV series, Good Trouble, Elliot from the Earth, and The Gumball Chronicles.

What do you think of DAYS harkening back to the younger Theo and bringing back Terrell to take on a new role? Comment below.

Don’t know what to think about old Theo vs new Theo, but overall this entire Abe kidnapping story is the biggest steaming pile of time wasting dragonshit imaginable.

And how many times can poor Abe – a man in his 70s – survive serious head injuries anyway?? That’s twice in one year that he got knocked out by some thug who had problems with Paulina.

I agree! This is the last soap left that I watch. If the writing doesn’t improve, I’m done with this one.

YES!! I TOTALLY AGREE!! That’s why I left B&B (as of TODAY), the writers and their BULL$HIT ideas of what to do with certian characters!! BTW, I STOPPED watching Day’s, because they no longer have it on NBC. (I DO have Peacock, but it’s the principle of the matter for me), that is….

True that also why should we have to pay to watch a damn soap opera? This is the only one we have to pay for and it’s nothing new with changing characters and bringing old one originals back as someone else like Rex and Brady

Lol it’s almost up there with the elephant story line… so stupid and such a waste of a new set…. It needs to end very soon!

…yes, the elephant story is best forgotten LOL

I’d rather see him back as Theo if I am being honest. Next to Kyler Pettis, he is the only Theo I ever liked.

Yea seriously they should have just replaced the new Theo with him if he’s already back on the show. I will admit the new Theo was the best he has been on the Juneteenth episode but still not a big fan of him

Same here!!!

Not for me… Terrell Ransom Jr is the ONLY & BEST Theo (IMO) as they say to each his own….

They need to bring back Kyle Pettis as Theo.

I happen to like the Abe Whitley storyline. Id rather see them than snoozefest Chad and Stephanie.

I adore Abe (and miss Lexie & Celeste daily) but I really wish DAYS was more of a classic soap than a spoof of one. I love when humor is injected into dramas here n there but witty, intelligent humor and Ron’s version is cheap, dumb, cringy, bash you over the head humor via grating characters like Bonnie.

And while I applaud DAYS for using their vets, I wish TPTB could come up with something better than kidnappings, possessions, evil twins, and 3 leading ladies “dying” and going to heaven twice when we know they aren’t in any real danger. I feel like Ron C has the same 10 soap tropes (look-a-likes, brainwashing, multiple personalities, kidnappings, deaths w little payoff) that he uses over and over and over again.

Some humanity, family drama & social issue stories would go a long way to balance out the tackiness of his writing. In Abe’s case we’ve seen less of his Carver family than any other vet on the show. He has 3 kids, Brandon, Lani and Theo, yet Lani was the only one to be on consistently for more than a few years at a time. TPTB hit the jackpot w Kyler Pettis’ casting as Theo yet fired him. And Brandon hasn’t been seen in over a decade. Abe also has a sister Karen, nephew Jett, brother Jonah and sis in law Wendy who are never seen or mentioned. And his mother-in-law Celeste was a 15 year vet and fan-fave with countless canvas connections and history. So I’d rather the TPTB develop his real Carver family than devote time to a fake one for a forgettable story.

And as much as I like Paulina, Valerie was my fave pairing of his since Lexie’s passing. I wanted them to be endgame and mine relatable family & career drama. More Carvers & Hortons please! Lol

Well said!! I agree with you that it needs to get a little more serious

…totally agree!!

I think it was a nice surprise seeing the old Theo come back and pretend to be Theo. It took me a second. ♥️
