THIS WEEK: Lindsay Arnold Makes Her Debut As Lumi’s Daughter, Allie on Days of our Lives

A case of SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndome) had hit Days of our Lives!

After months of speculation, the character of Allie Horton has been aged-up to bring some teen angst into the equation; which with it will mark the return of two beloved Salemites: Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) and Alison Sweeney (Sami).

DAYS cast Lindsay Arnold in the role of the preggers Allie, which was revealed this past Friday on the latest promo for the NBC soap opera; where it appears she surprises good ole’ Uncle Eric (Greg Vaughan) with her surprise return to town.

Look for Arnold’s first appearance on the Thursday June 11th episode of the daytime drama series.

So, what trouble will Allie’s arrival in Salem stir up for the Horton and Brady clans?

And, what do you think of the decision to SORAS the character? Let us know your thoughts on that, plus which age-up of a character on soaps do you think has been the most successful of all-time? Comment below, but first check out the latest promo for DAYS featuring Lindsay.

Sarah will want to adopt the baby…????

Will and Sonny will adopt the baby….I wonder who is the Daddy???

probably..they were talking about having another kid!!!

Yawn! Just what we need, another pregnant teenager. Also, am not a fan of big mouth, trouble maker and know-it-all Sammi. It seems like they are sacrificing Will and Sonny to bring all these other characters, counting a possible six and Jakes girlfriend.

I don’t like that they aged Allie so much and she is pregnant.

Im not sure how much they aged her….she was born in 07! There have been many worse examp⁸les. Abigail and Brady were born the same year, 1992, and while Abigail is probably right around 28 where she should be, Brady seems to be closer to 50.

Let’s just hope she doesn’t have any scenes with John Black…

I know that Drake Hogestyn is a long-term popular star of DOOL, but I find him virtually unwatchable. And it’s not just the nonstop squinting (his default mode in acting). He is the most handsy guy I have ever seen — anywhere, even in real life. Is it really in the script for him to repeatedly touch every single scene partner in every single scene? Granted, he is regularly hugging and kissing Marlena, which you assume is in the script. But he places his hands on everyone else as well, including (in recent weeks) Steve, Abe, and son Brady.

In a show where murder is somewhat rampant, all this touching is overkill!

Gosh James, I never noticed, but I will pay more attention now. What annoys me is his whispery voice. Years ago, maybe it came across as sexy, but now its just annoying , especially when he and Marlena are all Lovey Dovey. And another thing that’s bugging me is his acting all crazy about Claire. I can’t remember them saying two words to each other when she was on before. Sorry James, you got me started!

Hey Violet! So cool to read your reply. And glad I got you “started!” I hesitate to be critical of soap royalty (although I have done so). But it’s over the top! And yes, you’re also correct about the whispery voice.

By the way, I wrote my above comment before seeing Friday’s show, wherein “he is acting all crazy about Claire.” Again, the hugs (probably in the script) between John and Claire were overblown (I’m not as familiar with the history as you are). And for good measure, John gave a hardy slap on the back to Shawn as Shawn was leaving. So no character in scenes with John escapes untouched…

Thanks for the play-on words, James—-love it. So glad you opened this door….my stomach sort of rebels—it’s a visceral thing for me whenever John makes an appearance.
John Black—-hmmmm–true that: unwatchable. I simply FF whenever he’s on. And, he only squints one eye, which makes him look goofy—-I, too, have noticed the hand-jive, LOL—reminds me of a certain someone.
Furthermore—the wishy-washy; lovey-dovey ; kissy-pooh between him and Marlena is too much for me to handle—the most superfluous and unrealistic domestic paradise ever!!
Stay safe, my friend….

Great to hear from you, Celia! I hope all is well! So glad you’ve noticed this behavior as well. And I agree with you about “the wishy-washy; lovey-dovey; kissy-pooh between him and Marlena:” it’s too much. And I’m certainly not an ageist. I made the same point at this site about Ben and Ciara, both of whom I otherwise enjoy. Please take care.
