It’s a can’t miss week starting on Monday, October 6th for James Scott and EJ DiMera fans, as from the looks of it, in this newly released promo for Days of our Lives, shots ring out and it could be EJ who is the target!  Does he get shot?

What we already know:  Susan (Eileen Davidson) returned to tell her son that she has a very bad feeling that he is in danger.  Meanwhile Clyde (James Reade), who EJ is doing some dirty business dealing with to get DiMera Enterprises back on track (since Sami and Kate’s takeover), has plans of his own to take EJ down and even told his co-conspirator Jeremiah!

Meanwhile, in the NBC promo, Sami  (Alison Sweeney) is in the park and hears shots ring out and says, “EJ”? Couple that with this photo posted at NBC.com that says,”Sami makes a startling discovery,” and you have all the earmarks of the beginning of James Scott’s exit storyline!

So, what do you think?  Will EJ be shot?  Will he die?  Is it a set-up and he is alive?  Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below which starts with things looking very bleak for Theresa (Jen Lilley) as John (Drake Hogestyn) remembers what happened the night he got clubbed in the head!

I think if anything, they’ll “kill” E.J. off or fake his death so that he can return later like Stephano always does when he “dies.” E.J. is too much of an important character and I doubt they would kill him off completely.

awe that sucks. i was jus starting to like ej. man i sure hope that he comes back like stephano.

So disappointing that ej want be on the show!!!!! 1st Bo now ej!!!

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!! Is that how they write EJ out of the show? I certainly hope not. I’d hope the door would be open for the character’s return even if James Scott isn’t interested. Wait and see.

Theresa has got to fry for all her wrong doing.

Eve would be losing her baby sister.

I hope Jen Lilley’s contract isn’t up. If it is and it isn’t renewed , a big mistake is in the works. She is an absolute flawless actress. I love that face….I really don’t want to look at John’s. If he talks, she’s a goner.
Perhaps, everyone will think he’s hallucinating….Marlena should get hit in the head too, so they can both commiserate their boring bad luck.

First John will keep it a secret that Theresa struck him with a fireplace poker…instead John will use the info to blackmail her to stay away from Brady…as for E.J. if Sami finds him shot he’ll need extensive rehabilitation to walk again and they leave town to get it, or he will be in a severe coma and they will leave town for that, or he’s dead and a grieving Sami decides to leave town because of it, or E.J. isnt dead and he and Sami flee town because of the danger as Susan predicted, or E.J. shot Clyde and flees town not to be caught…many possibilities…meanwhile Chad takes over the Dimera mansion and Dimera Enterprises and Theresa becomes his new love interest but Chad still loves Abigail and Theresa still loves Brady…however, Chad and Theressa are attracted to each other and Theressa finds she is pregnant with twins and a new Dimera dynasty is born…but Theressa and Brady had a secret affair behind everyones back so are the twins a Dimera or a Brady…shocking twist:THEY’RE BOTH!!! One twin is a Dimera and the other is a Brady! Only in daytime folks…lol…but this isnt a spoiler…just my wishful thinking!!!

Brady Black isn’t a Brady if that is what you are saying– Theresa is half a Brady; John, Brady’s father thought he was a Brady, then he thought he was an Almain, then he thought he was a Dimera, now he doesn’t know who he is again—-so John and Isabella’s son is a product of whoever John is and Isabella was from Italian family.

As for the twin thing didn’t they already do that when Sami was pregnant with Allie and Johnny– one twin was a Horton the other was a Dimera-? Although now they don’t even look like paternal twins– Johnny and Sidney look closer in age than Allie and Johnny who are supposed to be twins, but I digress.

I too think EJ will go into hiding to one of Stefano’s many mystery islands and Sami will join him there– only after everyone thinks EJ is dead and we are subjected to another fake funeral.

Again thanks for the reminder…i shouldve said Kirikas since he is the son of Isabella, Victors daughter or Black…wish they’d solve Johns background once and for all…he used to be such an interesting character…Marlena too…now they both bore me to death…maybe itll change…i think they did do the twin thing before but the subject never really comes up…so i say why not another…theyve done bad daddy and bad stepdaddy a number of times…i believe the first was Jack Clayton back in the 70s…oh well…thanks for the reply Mary!!!

Your futuristic scenarios make absolute sense, jimh. Isabella was not fully Italian…she was Victor’s daughter, I know that much., otherwise, Brady would not be his grandson, non e’ vero? ( isn’t that true?…translation from the Italian). Theresa is a Brady…no matter which side of the family, she is part Brady. My mother’s maiden name is Stuart. She is still a Stuart after marriage. No?…It doesn’t matter ….it is in the DNA, not the name.
Your accounts are so real jimh, I almost believed them to be true.
Yes, the twin thing from two different fathers was already done. But, isn’t that what soaps do? Repeat past situations?
I do not believe that there is such a thing as paternal twins. Paternal means from the father side. Does not apply to twins. When referring to twins, the sets are either identical…the zygote from the same egg separates into two identical embyos……Or fraternal…there are two separate eggs that have been fertilized, thus two unidentical embryos. This is quite phenomenal. Two eggs would have to be present during ovulation…..normally it is only one.
So, jimh, do you agree with me that Theresa should stay?

It could be staged and EJ takes off with his mother’s help…..traveling incognito.

Yes this IS what will happen. Years ago when ej was shot during his first or maybe second wedding to sammi, i said it was the then young will and although it took years to come out i was right. Same here ej was wearing a bullet proof vest and that was a device spewing fake blood. He didnt tell sammi because it had to be real to her until his reveal. Two clues: kids spilling red punch on kitchen table was an easter egg hinting fake blood to viewers and the emts said ” he stopped bleeding” which they meant he bled out but that wouldnt have happened so fast. All three kids will be at mansion with roman but he will be in on it and get them to a waiting plane where ej and sammi will be with Susan! Noone including stephano will know. Roman will tell everyone that sammi and kids needed to leave in witness protection until shooter found

Noooo !!!!! John, go back to sleep !

I’m with you. Where is Theresa with a fireplace poker when you need her?

Cheer up, while we may be losing EJ, we’re gaining more airtime with Danial.
He just lights up the screen with his riveting and compelling presence.
Danial is so exciting that the screen just crackles and sizzles when he is on.

Okay, I tried.

These are the weeks I’ve been dreading……

I don’t want them to go! I’m not ready!!!

I’m with you!!!

No, I want EJami to leave together happy.

Well I hope something good happens. With a few minor exceptions, Days has been a giant snoozefest for weeks. And exactly what couples are we supposed to be rooting for? Jennifer constantly doubts Daniel — why should we root for them as a couple? Eric verbally crucifies Nicole evertyime he sees her — again why should we root for them? Abs and whatever Tool she is paired with are like an instant sleeping pill. Ben is an anger management case waiting for therapy. Again why root for them? And Jordan? Where to start? She is quite possibly the most insipid character I’ve seen on a show in years. The mystery of her past was so slow to unravel that I lost any interest that I may have had and quite frankly the reveal was a yawn.

Days has much talent in their acting stable. They should be used good stories and good couplings that makes the audience want to root for them.

I totally disagree with your second sentence.

EJ’s death is a definite “fake”. EJAMI are end game—Sami will join EJ in a few weeks–new beginning for them in a different country is how EJAMI will end!

For sure, Amanda. Agreed.

I know EJAMI will be end game with happily, ever after. I can’t imagine Days without EJAMI. I definitely will stop watching when EJAMI are off screen. Everything else on Days is boring and pathetic in my opinion.

An immense thank you to James and Alison for portraying the best duo on Days and probably on daytime soaps. They are so natural together with extraordinary chemistry. No other duo comes remotely close to this awesome couple portrayed by the beautiful talented Alison Sweeney and talented, handsome, charming James Scott.

I agree with everything you said. Bo and Hope used to be the hot couple years back. But that story line is old now.

It looks like john will say theresa but that’s too obvious so i think he will say kristin as a way of helping eric & getting her out of brady’s life.

I just want to say with Sami & EJ gone there is not one couple with any chemistry on the show – zip none!! Days will be so boring – and the new Chad should be taller!

I agree with you. Back in the 80s and 90s Bo and Hope were the couple.

Cute but he’s not sexy, baby face

I will miss the talented James and Allison. Their portrait of EJ and Sami was played to perfection. Know matter how angry they became, they always had each other backs. Let them just leave Salem and just maybe some day we could have a Soap call The DiMera – The Next Chteter!

I missed spelled a word – The DiMera – The Next Chapter!

Please bring Sami and eh back they are wonderful gym together the show will be so sad and boring without them take Will and sonny off the show its not normal life with. Them no one wants to see them faith jimerson

So sad, shocked, and dismayed the writers would off EJ. Stephano can’t live forever and Chad is an dweeb, can’t stand his character. If there is any good in the writers, they will figure out how to let EJ rise from the ashes as his father has done so often. Hate to see what they have planned for Sami. The show is sure going down the tubes without them. I’ve watched, loyally, every episode for over thirty years? I am seriously thinking of taking it off my DVR list now. Good luck DOOL. Writing your good characters out seems dumb to me. Maybe they are doing it on purpose? Is the end of the show nearing? Don’t think I will know, oh well, huh?

I Think DOOL has been going down hill for along time. James Scott and Allison Sweeny are a leaving at a Good Time. The Story lines are boring also. The Writers are also Lame in my mind and boring. Bo and Hope need to leave too. If Peter comes back as Bo what a shame. It will not save DOOL. Time to say Good Bye to Days.

Absolutely agree with everything you said. Frankly if the writers and producers want their fans to continue watching the show they’re better get creative!!!!

Alison and James left of their own volition. The writers had little time to plan an exit story line for them.

Yes U R RIGHT.

I couldn’t help crying on to-days’s show where E.J. gets.shot. I could almost feel the same horrible feelings and shock Sami felt when she tried to keep him alive and the disbelief when she was in the hospital and finally the morgue. That got me, the morgue scene. I sensed her horror and disbelief as she saw him lying on the slab and feeling for a heartbeat that wasn’t there. The tears were flowing I felt so bad for her.

;( me too!!! I’m sad!!!

Yes, I am in the same denial that Samantha is in….and I hope that I am right!! Bawled like a baby when they they kissed in the park after saying each other’s names… and again, when she couldn’t hear his heartbeat!! Maybe this is just a goodbye to the man we knew as EJ Dimera, complete with death certificate… but soon hello to his new identity?? He said he would do anything for his family…and go anywhere. If that picture on the mantel is EJ’s with the urn in front… you can’t very well ID the body!!) Remember…JS came back to tape his final day on May 2nd…. maybe that is the day when he reveals that he is alive and they leave for good (not the death scene!) Did I hear Roman say he was going to “hate tonight”…maybe because they have to play this out as real and witness Sami’s pain???? Did EJ cut a deal with the Feds / Police in exchange for the witness protection program for his family to turn in Mr. Westin or the Phoenix? OK…I am just exhausted…so here it is… Ken Corday & DAYS Of OUR LIVES…if you have not saved EJ Dimera in some living form or another….YOU ARE DEAD TO ME!!! (Italian accent implied!)

1st agenda: EJ is faking his death with the help of his thug side-kick. EJ rarely loses his cool, so to punch Mr. Westin, is not his style. Mr Westin thinks that the thug is in league with him, when really, he is helping EJ fake his death. Not sure Sami is in on this yet, but the time will come when she is clued in… then she and the kids will have to decide to leave with him or not (not a very hard decision- rermember they talked about fake IDs not too long ago!) Agenda #2-Mr. Westin may freak out and realize he needs to get out of Salem before he gets in trouble with the police (and the Dimeras- should they want revenge) He is another loose end that EJ would like to see eradicated. Then our sweet EJamily can start over in another town…hopefully near me!!

I HATE THAT YOUR KILLING OFF EJ HES BEEN A FAVORITE OF MINE FOR SUCH A LONG TIME ,I HAVE WATCHED YOUR PROGRAM FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS BUT HAVE DECIDED THIS IS IT NO MORE FOR ME IM OUT OF HEAR .GOOD BUY DAYS AND DONT LET THE DOOR HIT YOU IN THE —-.

Lol!!!

Watching Days has become 1 of the joys of my week!!! If the writers it out the EJ and Sami characters I’m no longer interested in the show!!

my best to James scott and alison Sweeney. Love you lots.

EJ will be back the shot his sister gave him was to bring him back he had nothing did to his body yet they just cleaned him up that’s all so Same could see him she was losing her mind over him I think his father has him this is what I think to bring him back to life that is what was in that shot she gave him

My phone is making mistakes and I am sorry I mean Sammie

All my love to Ejami. Thank you for giving me so much enjoyment. ‘I am in a nursing home.
I hope I can make it with out U 2.

I will never forgive Days for EJDiMera dying in a pile of dirt by a day player. No matter how the show tried to fix this shit fest ending, they screwed over their finest Leading Man this Century. EJ and Samantha deserved a HEA not the likes of pimped and propped pairing Chad/Abby.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: What Will Diana Tell Leo? Is John Really His Father?

This week on Days of our Lives, Judith Chapman is back for a one-day stint as Diana Colville when her son, Leo (Greg Rikaart) visits her in prison.

In story, Diana was sent to the slammer, for back in 2019 she tried to murder Marlena (Deidre Hall), and at the time she admitted (or claims) she falsified the DNA tests that originally proved the John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was Leo’s father. Leo turned his back on his mother and has not seen or spoken to her again.

However, recently Leo has visited Marlena as his shrink to try to get to the bottom of why he is the way he is. Upon Marlena’s suggestion, she advises him to see his mother.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest on her upcoming key scenes, Chapman expressed, “Diana was not happy about him going to Marlena for help and Leo is like, ‘Yeah, Mom, I’m figuring this out because you messed me up so much in my life.'”

Judith teased,“She (Diana) stays in control so she’s not breaking down but her facade definitely cracks. By the time we finished the scenes, everybody who was in earshot started applauding. I thought it was just a token, ‘Oh, welcome back, Judith,’ but it was because Greg and I apparently knocked it out of the park. The director came out, threw her hands up and was like, ‘You did it, you did it!’ Greg and I hugged and just clung to each other for 15, 20 seconds.”

Make sure to tune-in to the Tuesday, June 25th of the Peacock streaming soap opera to see the showdown between Leo and Diana.

So, do you think Leo is John’s biological son after all? Do you think Diana will reveal something else that will help Leo figure out why he does the things he does? Are you excited to see Judith and Greg in scenes again, after years as Y&R mother and son, Gloria and Kevin, and then on Days as Diana and Leo?

Check out our recent Daytime Emmy Red Carpet interview with Greg below. Then, let us know your theories in the comment section.

In a not-then-but-now real-life story, Days of our Lives incoming Gabi Hernandez, actress Cherie Jimenez took to Instagram on Friday after it was revealed by Deadline, that her first airdate as the recast Gabi is next week on June 27th!

Jimenez has replaced longtime DAYS star, Camila Banus in the role. Previously, Banus made the decision to step away from the part after taking on the role in 2010.

She expressed, “WOW ✨🎬 My heart is filled with immense gratitude over the opportunity of a lifetime. I am GABI HERNANDEZ DIMERA on the iconic DAYS OF OUR LIVES ⏳❤️‍🔥 It has been an absolute dream working on DAYS.”

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of wrongful termination.

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.
