Days of our Lives fans across America are getting ready Friday for the return of legacy character Steven “Patch” Johnson, portrayed by the one and only Stephen Nichols, after patiently awaiting six months for Nichols to re-emerge on the Salem canvas. Well, the day has arrived.

Patch and Kayla fans will finally see real-life best buds and the sizzling on-screen duo of Mary Beth Evans (Kayla) and Nichols together again.  Everyone is anticipating that the magic, and the spark that made you fall in love with this super couple, is still as palpable and as strong as ever, just as it was back in the 80’s and 90’s.

To herald his on-screen arrival today, Nichols tweeted: ” I love you, my Sweetness! I back for you! #PatchIsBack #Days50 #PatchlovesSweetness”  

Mary Beth Evans then tweeted back:  ‘I’m so excited to be able to use the hashtag #Patchisback Yay!!

So looking forward to Stephen’s return today on Days of our Lives?  How will the series explain where Patch has been and the trouble within the relationship between Kayla and Patch that caused a rift?  Let us know in the comment section below!

Looking forward to it!

Kayla needs a love interest and a storyline.

I’m watching right now! Can’t wait to see Patch and Kayla together again–haven’t seen the show in such a long time but just had to tune in today. Patch and Kayla: such a contrast to defunk Luke and Laura. And genuine friendship–what a boon! And refreshing in this jaded world. There’s hope yet!

And they both look just like they did years ago! Great return–and great reaction by “Kayla” when she caught sight of “Patch” over Joey’s shoulder! We’re off to the races–full speed ahead!

I hope to say and mean it, THE BEST RETURN OF A FAN FAVORITE IN 2015. I think it will be an amazing return, full of goose pimples, tears and happy smiles, these two actors are MAGIC. Mary Beth & Stephen =
brilliant talent, genuineness, love, respect and fabulous chemistry. I have faith in DAYS that Patch’s return will be epic &, then I can definitely say BEST RETURN OF A FAN FAVORITE CHARACTER IN SOAPS this year.

It sounds like a cliché, but this is what Daytime should be all about–the return of a beloved antihero like Patch, the potential for a supercouple like Patch and Kayla to reunite, Friday cliffhangers that leave you impatient for Monday’s show, new couples like Chad and Abby being set up in a smart way to help build rooting value, and the surprise ending which no one had spoiled! Way to go, DOOL!

Me too Patrick, I love Stephen Nichols and Mary Beth Evans. Days Of Our Lives is going to be good now. They will over take General Hospital in the ratings. Do you know Patrick if Stephen is on contract? Kayla and Patch are my favorite Days Couple.

that …. is the million dollar question

for, both, Peter Reckell and Stephen Nickols

I don’t know what to think… all I go by is this site… and what ever SOD issue I catch

mums the word indeed

LOL

I’d love it very much if they were both contract

I’m so looking forward to Kayla and Steve’s story line. As I said before, I hope the new writers deal with Kayla at Steve for abandoning her. And I also hope the Brady family gets to express their anger and disappointment at the way Steve has behaved towards Kayla.

Love it take notes you always treat the person who helped make you popular with respect ! Maybe someone should let Geary in on how you treat your leading lady that put you on the map.

Couldn’t agree more Kay. Geary’s arrogance when talking about the great Genie Francis was truly disappointing. Part of the magic of Evans & Nichols is their well documented off camera friendship.

I love this couple. I think Patch is so hot, albeit he’s old enough to be my father. WOW. He has that undefinable presence that just captures the senses.
Has anyone noticed the tulips on Kayla’s desk. That’s a spring bloom. Wow, it is true….’they’ do film six months ahead!!!!

Love Steve Johnson and Steve and Kayla.
The writers need to go forward with them but NOT abuse them as in the past simply to prop up others!!!!!!!

Best part was an old time cliffhanger like the old days . My what a look she gave him .

how long is Stephen Nichol’s contract for. I hope the writers didn’t bring Steve (Patch) back just for a few months. Kayla needs him to stay in Salem where he belongs. Just as Hope needs Bo to stay in Salem so I hope Peter Reckell’s contract is long term. And Salem just has not been the same without Andre to keep everyone on their toes.

Oh, is Patch a cop, too? Why is Kayla so upset with him?

Patch joined the ISA while he, Kayla and Joey were in Africa. He left her alone with Joey in Africa. She considered that abandonment. The ISA is a spy organization.

Thank you, Gmbenet. Very informative. I asked my grandmother, but she couldn’t remember….I was about to research when I read your post.

Love watching Patch and Kayla again on screen. They are aging so well. Almost like time stood still. Can’t wait to see more:) 1 of my fav super couples back in the day. Another reason I love soaps. Years can pass and favorites can still reunite A LOT of yrs later. Also liked how Patch re-connected w/his son through social media, a realistic reason, not off the wall, pacing the story bit by bit…

Kassie DePaiva Back as Eve on DAYS; What Did You Think of the Shocking Reveal?

If you caught Wednesdays’s episode of Days of our Lives, you know that Ben’s (Rob Scott Wilson) captor was revealed.  After many theories by fans on social media since Ben and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) wedding literally blew up in their faces, with Ben being kidnapped, it all came down to this moment.

Then, in a great entrance; soap veteran Kassie DePaiva made a return to the NBC soap opera as Eve Donovan, the woman behind the kidnapping.

Photo: JPI

It all goes down in a warehouse (somewhere yet to be determined to the audience)  where we see Ben strapped to a chair and man dressed in black coming into the room where he is being held introducing himself as Vincent played by actor Michael Teh.

Vincent tells Ben he blew up his wedding and was paid to do so by his employer.   The henchmen also notes that said employer is also the same person who sent the other wedding gift- that was the one that Ben thought Clyde (James Read) to be behind.

Ben wants to be released but Vincent takes a baton and strikes Ben’s leg as he yelps in pain, and then, lo and behold, from the doorway we hear, “That’s enough Vincent.”

Just then, Eve says she will ‘take it from here’ as Ben watches her in shock.  What will Eve’s next move be?  Has she snapped?  Is this payback for what Ben did for murdering her daughter, Paige?  Is Eve working with someone else for money as well to harm Ben and Ciara?

DePaiva tweeted on her return: “I’m baacckk!@nbcdays watch out Ben!”

Victoria Konefal Confirms Her Exit From Days of our Lives

As the rumors circulated they were today proven true.  Victoria Konefal (Ciara) has left Days of our Lives as a full-time cast member with the long-running NBC soap opera.

In a statement to Deadline, Konefal shared: “I cherish every moment I have spent working on Days of Our Lives. It is an honor and a privilege to work in an environment filled with so much talent and passion in every direction. The experience and knowledge I’ve accumulated over the past three years is irreplaceable, and I’m forever grateful for it. I would love the opportunity to continue working with my castmates in the future, but at this time I will not be returning as a full-time cast member. To the cast and crew, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. To the loving and unwaveringly supportive fans, thank you. Thank you for joining me on my journey of finding Ciara Brady. It was a beautiful one. Cheers to some of the best days of my life.”

However with that statement, it does appear Konefal has left the door open for her to return as Ciara in a guest-star type of appearance or in a arc of a storyline- time will tell just how that pans out.

Konefal joined the show as the new Ciara Brady back in 2017, and became popular as part of the tortured duo known as “Cin’ along with Rob Scott Wilson (Ben) who’s on-screen nuptials aired this week on the show.

Since Days taped so far ahead of air before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown and has episodes through Mid-October in the can, it would appear Konefal would make her on-screen exit during that time, since she will not be returning to the series, when it begins production again, which is projected to start on September 1st.

Konefal joins the list of departures since the beginning of this year which now include: Casey Moss, Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith, Galen Gering, Greg Vaughan and Kristian Alfonso.

So, sad to see Victotia exit as Ciara? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
