    It’s Lexie. She has nothing to lose at this point. She’s dying anyway. This would be retribution for what Stefano did to her in those tunnels all those year’s ago. She may love her Father, but she’s not about to let him get away with killing her either!

    My first thought when I knew he was getting shot was that it would be Lexie, everyone else was too obvious, but now I’m kind of wavering. Maybe Agent Harmon?!? Or because we got news that he’s leaving the show, maybe Ian.

    I’m thinking Ian – As a way to save Kate.

    I think Ian did it! Didn’t he have a Phoenix emblem on his walking stick? There is a connection there somewhere besides Kate……

    Either Lexie or the feds got wind of the plots and faked his death.

    I am caught between Lexie and Celeste. I can see Lexie doing it out of anger for her own death sentence but, also see Celeste doing it for his part in Lexie’s illness.

    Hopefully, it will be Lexie who shot jim to protect her family and friends. And she wouldnt pay for it cause she will be dead very soon. And we know he isnt dead cause in an interview Joe said he is already in future story, so much for keeping silent!

      Lexi is to good to kill anyone. She loved her father, at their last visit she asked him not to hurt anyone she loves, Also I don’t want to see her character as good as it always has been, die a murderer. I am hoping Stephano isn’t dead.

    Lexie has always been portrayed as a soft-hearted, forgiving person. Dare I say Christian? Knowing she was about to leave this earth, Lexie would not deliberately commit the sin of murder.

    I’m with Agent Harmon or possibly Ian. Bringing on such a “big gun” with lots of other soap history apparently didn’t work. I never watched General Hospital so can’t say what kind of actor he was over there, but IMO on Days the Ian character was too stiff and not credible. I’m sure he had to read the lines he was given, it’s just his storyline was also too muddy. Even his bed scene with Kate seemed forced to me. So I’m thinking Corday decided to cut his losses and just walk away from the Ian plot.

    My money is on Stefano’s death being faked by the CIA to keep him safe since he supposedly gave up all kinds of valuable intel.

      I agree with you neenee I haven’t watched days for long but from everything I have seen with Lexi she is not going to kill her father, it’s not in her to do something like that. I hope he isn’t dead either and he is going away for a while but will show up in a few months, I guess they want us to rack our brains to figure out who did it. Ian is a dam good actor he was as you know on general hospital and he was also on all my children for a short time, He could be the killer if we have a murder, guess we will find out in time.

      I agree about the CIA. Either somebody we don’t care about, like Ian, shot Stefano and the CIA saved him but faked his death, or the CIA was in on the fake death from the beginning. Either way, Stefano will be back to take revenge on those who wanted him dead, after Joe has a summer vacation. Maybe Stefano lied about EJ not being his son to protect him from danger. Hopefully, the DiMera family will be reunited.

    I think someone else. Probably the least likely person, although I don’t know who that would be. Here’s a question: if all 8 of the main suspects touched the gun, why did the shooter wear gloves?

  11. Liberty S

    I think Ian was the one to shoot him OR perhaps Kayla.

    I think it was Ian, too.

    I’m now thinking Ian since he’s leaving the show. It could also be Agent Harmon or Celeste since they are minor characters. It obviously isn’t one of the 8 on the suspect board…that would be way to obvious and I doubt if any of those characters are leaving.

    Ya know what? I don’t really care. I hope Stefano isn’t dead and the nuwriters write so many of the wrongs on canvas.

    I think it’s Ian… notice how he read Kate’s divorce papers? she didn’t even look.

    Ian’s motive…

    he has a stake in her estate… and did love her once… he’s fawning over Kate… “did you do it? I can’t help you if you did…”

    which is nice.. cause now Kate can declare her love for Stefano… and wait for the DiMera’s.

    I don’t believe that Will did it i do agree that I did it.

REPORT: Days of our Lives Targets September Production Restart

Looks like Salem and Days of our Lives will be back in full-swing come September, if the target date holds true as revealed today by Deadline.

According to their sources, Corday Productions, who produces the long-running NBC daytime drama, sent out an email to cast members on Thursday notifying them of their intent to resume production come September 1st.

However for this article; reps for NBC, Corday and Sony Pictures TV declined to comment.

Days of our Lives has had enough shows banked through early October of this year, so was not pressed to get back into production amidst the coronavirus pandemic as much as CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful (which went back into production a week and half ago), and The Young and the Restless and General Hospital who are targeting a mid-July restart.

All three of the shows, except for DAYS ran out of original episodes to air, back at the end of April of this year.

So, excited to hear that their may be plans ahead come fall for DAYS to come to back and tape new episodes? Comment below.

DAYS Elani Wedding (Photos): What Did You Think Of The Nuptials?

This week on Days of our Lives saw the first African-American couple to be married on-screen in the 54-year history of Days of our Lives.  Now while Lani (Sal Stowers) and Eli (Lamon Archey) tried before in a previous ceremony, this one did the job … they are now officially husband and wife!

The ceremony was attended by Lani’s dad, Abe Reynolds (James Reynolds), her mother Tamara Price (Marily McCoo), Billy Davis Jr.  as a former FBI mentor to Eli, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) – it was her restaurant after all and she is Eli’s grandmother.  Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) presided over the ceremony.

There were some unwelcome guests at the ceremony as well; leading the bride to question, are we doomed?  Why does this keep happening to us everytime we tried to get hitch!

However, fate was on Lani and Eli’s side this day, as even Gabi (Camila Banus) with her antics, and a shocking arrival from Vivian Alamain (Louise Sorel), couldn’t rain on this day.  Vivian even tried to shoot the bride, but thanks to Rafe (Galen Gering) saving the day and armed with news that her son Stefan (Brandon Barash) could be alive; he informs Viv firmly that she would be killing someone for the wrong reason, even though Vivian is in disbelief that her son is alive.  Next, she is whisked out of the ceremony.

Lani still feeling rattled by all the wedding interruptus gets a sign she should marry the man she loves; when her mother, who needed to go lie down earlier, as she was feeling faint, was able to show back up just in time to restart the wedding.


During the ceremony, Eli mentions the loss of little David Abraham and the struggles they went through, but how in the end it brought then closer together.  After the rings are exchanged and they are pronounced man and wife, the newlyweds “jump the broom” a wonderful tradition and a symbol of African-American heritage, where the sweeping of the broom signifies sweeping away all the bad energy.  After they sweep the broom, Elani jumps over it.

In a behind-the-scenes of the wedding segment released this week on the DOOL app, Sal Stowers and Lamon Archey talk about the inclusion of the ‘jump the broom’ moment in the episode, and how they suggested the idea to DAYS Co-EP Albert Alaar, and how  it was written into the episode.

So, what did you think of Lani and Eli’s wedding? Did you enjoy it? Let us know via the comment section below, but first check out this wedding photo gallery of the big day!

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
