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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

DAYS Alison Sweeney Previews the New EJami

Coming up on Days of our Lives, Dan Feurerriegel take over the role of EJ DiMera on-screen, and the character is making quite the timely, or untimely return to Salem now that Sami (Alison Sweeney) has been hitting the sheets with her ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo).

Feurerriegel is stepping into the coveted role of EJ made soap-famous by James Scott, who left the series back in 2014 and never returned.

Now the question is can Sweeney and Feurerriegel strike soap gold with their re-imagined duo known as “EJami”?

 

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Alison Sweeney opened up about the casting, working with Dan, and the future of EJami sharing: “To be honest, I was nervous when I heard they were recasting EJ.  That’s a big role to fill, I mean, James Scott was definitely a fan favorite and EJ is such a memorable role in the story and certainly in Sami’s life.”

Sweeney said of sharing scenes with Feurerriegel, “Dan has been fantastic. I’ve really enjoyed working with him. He clearly understood the importance of the task ahead.”

As for what fans of EJami may be in for, Sweeney noted:  ” I hope those ‘EJami’ fans see the couple they were so connected to, but of course, in a new, different way.”

So will you be giving the new EJami a chance? Looking forward to Dan’s debut, or are you Team Lumi all the way? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first check out this week’s promo for DAYS.

DAYS Billy Flynn Opens Up To Maurice Benard About His Battle with Addiction on All-New ‘State of Mind’

In a terrific episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) State of Mind You Tube series, the actor welcomes another one of the best actors on daytime, Days of our Lives star Billy Flynn (Chad DiMera, Days of our Lives).

What made this so compelling was Billy Flynn’s ability to talk openly, frankly, and with great understanding about his battles with addiction which he notes have been alcohol, drugs, and the cycles he has found himself in within his life and how he was able to break free of them, and the work he continues to do to keep him from falling back into them.

Flynn shares how much of his adult life was greatly impacted by his childhood, and explained to Benard, how he acted out when he was younger. He also shares how his addiction caused issues for awhile with his job at Days of our Lives.

This episode is a powerful one to watch for anyone struggling with issues of addiction, dependency, suicide, having problems at work, and trying to not self-destruct, which so many of us do, once we seemingly get what we what or while we are trying to obtain it.

Bravo to Billy and Maurice for bringing this forward and to the audience.

Watch Billy’a visit on State of Mind below, followed by a bonus segment where Flynn asks Benard some ‘hard-hitting’ questions.

What did you think of what Billy shared with Maurice? Comment below.
