It’s going to be so sad! Renee and James have done an excellent job with this story. I remember back when Renee came on as Nikki, then later came on as Lexie. She’ll be missed.

Oh man that looks sad. But glad she died out with Abe instead of a hospital! Glad the actress suggested that.

I will miss Lexie so much. Days won’t be the same without her. Renee did a wonderful job. I’m still bummed about Stefano dying before Lexie.. i would have loved to see him grief over his beautiful Alexandra. No doubt a powerful & heartfelt performance. I wish Renee all the best! Rest in peace Lexie. You’ll always be a part of Days!

This story has been told well, but tghis is an actress and character that will be missed. Always felt Lexie and Abe were moral compasses, bases of reality, for the show, not caught up too deeply as others in Salem in DOOL’s trademark more outlandish spinning of tales. Abe’s life after Lexie is fodder for very compelling storytelling. Let’s hope the new writing team can do something with that. We all experience loss and it is difficult, hence a built-in connection for a special plot.

Renee Jones/Lexi did a great job with this storyline/role. I always liked Renee/Lexie. She was always a breath of fresh air in the show. I thought her scenes with EJ were always very good. She was the voice of reason. She will be missed. This is too sad.

“Lexie dies in Abe’s ARMS”…. Sad, Beautiful, Well Executed.

thought provoking… an endearing, enchanting… individual…. you can hear Stefano… saying, her name….. “Alexandra”… that spoke volumes…

Abe’s resolute demeanor…. a part of him gone… missing…

it’s high quality stuff…. Renee Jones…. Take care… THANK YOU… Sincerely.

Yes, everything you said–very moving and well executed. I have only been watching Days since OLTL ended, but this storyline and the fine acting really got to me. I had a family member die recently and I didn’t get to say good-bye. The loss of Lexie and Renee is a painful loss for all of us. Wonderful characters and acting like this are the heart and soul of good soaps. Renee will be missed.

I saw the preview just a moment ago, that will be so sad to see Abe lose Lexie like that, I mean she was his heart! That will be so sad! I will sure miss her, and Renee Jones, too! She has just been so wonderful in this role! Thank you, Renee, for all of your great work, take care, and all the best to you!

I am very appreciative of the manner in which Days of Our Lives allowed Renee Jones to exit as Lexie. A lot of care was taken to make Lexie’s demise beautiful as well as touching. The garden was beautiful. If those flowers were real (they looked real), Days put out a lot of money just on the flowers alone! The make-up department did a nice job on Renee to make her look the part. They deserve the Emmy they just received and I hope they get one next year too for what they did on Renee.

The acting was heartfelt too. I imagine after 20 years of working together and knowing that special time as co-workers on a soap was coming to an end, it was not hard to produce the tears when they were needed. The last scenes with Lexie were well written and executed by Renee and James Reynolds. Abe’s (James Reynolds) grief upon realizing Lexie was gone was as real as it could have been portrayed. So was Hope’s (Kristian Afonso) grief upon finding Abe holding the deceased Lexie. Bo’s (Peter Reckell) words and act of comfort for grieving Abe was right on point.

After knowing of Renee’s exit for several months, watching Lexie die was not sad for me. I was sad when I heard Renee was leaving the show. So seeing l Lexie die was par for the course. But watching Theo and Abe together and hearing Theo ask his Dad, Abe, “What are we going to do now?” was heartwrenching. That is when I felt the absense of both Renee the actress and Lexie the character. Ouch!

What indeed is the Days of Our Lives family going to do now? Well, the show, cast, crew and fans will go on!

Best wishes Renee. If you ever decide to resume your acting career, come back to Days’ as Lexie’s evil twin sister! Celeste does have secrets! Stefano will need a successor!

Can someone please tell me the name of the song that was played when Abe and Theo were done talking and it showed several pictures of Lexie as it was playing. The words that really stick in my mind are “one last wish or one more wish”. I thought that song was absolutely beautiful. I would really like to know the name of it please. Thank You

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

It’s a Wrap For DAYS Galen Gering As He Shares Special Message To Fans: “I Hope You Know How Thankful I Am To Have Had You At My Side”

Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”
