As we reported earlier today, the soap world and Days of our Lives fans were reeling a bit with a news item reported by Soap Opera Digest that James Scott (EJ Dimera) would not be staying with DAYS when his contract is up for renewal.

On-Air On-Soaps then checked with DAYS directly, and they informed us that things were still on-going with James and his contract talks with the series.

Now this afternoon, the talented and beloved Mr. Scott has issued his own statement clarifying his position for his fans.  James said, “It has always been my wish to continue working with Days of our Lives, and in light of recent reassurances given, I am optimistic of my future here at Days.”

So hang tight, it would appear that James is working things out with the powers-that-be. We will keep you posted on any further updates should they become available. But James’ statement does offer some good news.

Same here. Love the vets coming back, but not enough to stick around without the character of EJ DiMera played by Mr. James Scott. DOOL would be foolish to lose him. Hope he stays.

Im so relieved. James is the only reason I have kept watching this poor excuse for a show even though EJAMI fans have not been given what they wanted. I am an EJAMI 101% and Im glad that James is working out his contract. However, I do wish that Y&R would hire him. Him and Michelle Stafford ROCK!

The acting talent of James Scott is the only reason that I watch DOOL. If he chooses to leave, his last air date would be my last watch date. I sure hope that things work out so that we, the viewing audience, can continue to his performances for years to come.

Oh, I would be devasted if JS were to leave DOOL!! The man is a highly regarded and talented actor who would no doubt do well anywhere, I just would prefer him to stay on DOOL. Seriously, if he left the show there would be no reason left for me to watch. He is DOOL for me.

James Scott is the only reason I watch Days. EJ’s character cannot be recast by another British actor.

The network would be crazy to let James scot go! He is one of the best soap actors on TV today. The chemistry between him and Allison Sweeney is amazing and totally believe able ! If they let him go I do’n’t think i I’ll watch anymore and I’ve been a loyal fan for 40 years.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Jack Wants His Memory Back, But Do You Want Him To Reunite With Jennifer … Or Stay With Eve?

Since his return to Salem on New Year’s Eve of 2018, Jack Deveraux (Matt Ashford) has had no recollection of his past, although there have been some mini-breakthroughs along the way, but none big enough or strong enough to get him out of the clutches of Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) and back into the arms of his longtime love, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves).

Next week on Days of our Lives, looks like the story further heats up (according to the latest DAYS promo from NBC) where Jack tells Eve he wants his memory back.  She had held the cards to Dr.  Rolf’s formula and to the serum that could restore Jack’s memory, until Xander (Paul Telfer) got his hands on it, and turned it over in time to save the life of Will Horton (Chandler Massey).

So, now what will happen?  Will Eve play nice and truly help Jack get his memory back, or will she once again play dirty pool?  Meanwhile, look for Jennifer to make one more impassioned plea for Jack to remember their time together, and possibly decide it’s of no use and she must move on with her life.  But, will Jack regain his memory in time to be reunited with Jennifer? If he gets his memory back, could somehow he still choose to be with Eve?

Who do you want Jack to end up with? Are you #TeamJennifer of #TeamEve?  Let us know but first watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below, then share your choice via the comment section below.

Olivia Rose Keegan Posts Parting Thoughts As Her Final Episode As Claire Airs On DAYS

By now, many viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives have watched Tuesday’s episode, which saw Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) being wheeled out of a hospital room and on her way to the Bayview Sanitarium to deal with what led her to become a Salem firestarter after her latest attempt to torch Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and then herself.

In story, realizing she is severely troubled, Claire gets the news from her parents, Belle (Martha Madison) and Shawn (Brandon Beemer) that she won’t be facing prison time for attempted murder, but instead, she does need to be put away in a mental facility and leave right away at the judges orders.  That sets the stage for Olivia Rose Keegan to share her final scenes with many of her longtime co-stars before making her exit.

As her time on DAYS on-air came to a close, Olivia took to her Instagram to express her parting thoughts and the opportunity to play Claire, and be a part of the iconic soap opera

Keegan wrote: “Thank you for the best 4 years of my life.  To everyone who watches the show: I cannot thank you enough for sticking with Claire through the good, bad, and batsh*t.  Reading everyone’s comments/tweets this past week has been the most overwhelmingly amazing thing— It means more than you know   I also owe a huge thank you to the @nbcdays writers for giving me an opportunity to dig my nails into some fascinating material with this past storyline— as well as shine a light onto mental health awareness.  It would be too difficult to explain how much I love every single person in my @nbcdays family. It was a 4 year dream. I met lifelong friends, learned an infinite amount, and simply loved every minute of it.  Farewell from Salem’s newest pyro ”

Make sure to check out her exit interview with her co-stars, Rob Scott Wilson (Ben), Victoria Konefal and Brandon Beemer, exclusively on the DOOL app released this afternoon to hear the groups thoughts on the cabin fire twist, and Olivia’s exit from the Days canvas, and more.

So, sad to see Olivia make her exit from DAYS?  Do you hope she will come back for another turn as Claire?  Comment below.
