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.

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!!

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!!!!

Jaime

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!!!!!!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Finally, a Friday cliffhanger that makes me cant wait for Monday!!!

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.

DAYS tapes 5 to 6 months ahead and he is still taping.

Patch was off chasing bad guys! What else?

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

Gmbenet

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…

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Wally Kurth & Chandler Massey Deliver Poignant Scenes As Justin Tells Will ‘Don’t Give Up On Life’

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the scenes capturing the minds of DAYS viewers featured touching work from Wally Kurth (Justin) and Chandler Massey (Will).

In it, after seeing Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in prison, Justin comes upon Will, the man responsible for his beloved wife, Adrienne’s death (although the circumstances of just how Will was responsible have yet to come to light within the time jump).

Justin informs Will he is taking over Ben’s case, and Will thinks that with Justin on his side, Ben will have a better chance of getting out of the slammer.  Then, a guilt-ridden Will tells Justin that he thinks about Adrienne every single day and he will never stop hating and loathing on himself for being responsible for taking the love of Justin’s life away from him, and for what it has done to Will’s husband, Sonny, who has lost his mother in the process, and caused a huge rift in their marriage.

As things get more emotional between the two men, Will tells Justin that in his heart Adrienne was like a mom to him. Then, an emotional Justin tells Will he knows he did not mean to harm Adrienne.  Will thanks Justin, but thinks Justin hates him.  It is then that Justin reveals he could never hate Will.

Justin admits he hates what Will did, but let’s him know in no uncertain terms that he thinks of Will as a son, and will not and can’t stop loving him.  As Justin begins to tear up, he becomes emotionally overwhelmed by the sadness of the entire situation, and tells Will, “You’re a part of our family for better or worse.”

Next, Justin reminds Will that no matter what happens life goes on.   He himself is a perfect example as he has fallen in love with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and is happy for the first time in many months.  Then in the punctuation point of the scene, Justin tells Will to never give up on life and the two embrace.

Did Wally Kurth just lock up an Emmy nomination with this scene that aired on Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives? Did you reach for the hankies?  Share your thoughts on the heart-tugging scenes via the comment section below.  But first watch some key moments from it.

Stephen Nichols On His DAYS Return As Stefano: “I Knew I Didn’t Want To Be A Cheap Imitation.”

By now, Days of our Lives fans have witnessed that the heralded return of longtime favorite, Stephen Nichols came with a twist.  When Nichols re-emerged on the canvas, he was now playing Stefano DiMera, but in the face and body of what seems to be Steve “Patch” Johnson.

Nichols, who along with Mary Beth Evans, have been known as enduring supercouple Patch and Kayla, and now they find themselves in the Salem time jump in a different set of circumstances,  First of all, Kayla is romantically involved with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), and Nichols returned as Stefano and is in ca-hoots with Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).

In an interview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Stephen opens up about taking on the classic soap villain role made famous by the late, great Joe Mascolo.

Nichols admitted there was some trepidation taking on and in approaching how to portray the role: “It was daunting and a major challenge to take on. I knew I didn’t want to be a cheap imitation. I wanted to get Stefano’s essence.”

In preparing for his new journey on DAYS, Nichols noted: “I watched the master, Joe Mascolo.  I got lots of videos of Stefano. Stefano in every mode: Manipulating, laughing, Stefano with the ladies, with his children, and, of course, Stefano raging.”
