The Most Shocking DAYS Ever? EJ Shot? Is This James Scott's Exit Story? Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/NBC

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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!

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 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!

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… Read more »

Letting Days Go.

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.
