Days of Our Lives Comings and Goings

By November 13, 2012

Follow me on:

joe mascoloHere's the latest comings and goings casting news from Days of Our Lives.

It's hush-hush, but there's another big return on the show's horizon. A popular actor/actress from yesteryear is resuming their previous role.  Look for their first appearance to be sometime in February.

No word yet on Schuyler Yancey's (Cameron) last air date. However, his character does turn up at Salem University Hospital on Tuesday, November 13 in scenes with Camila Banus (Gabi).

Be sure to set your DVRs for Wednesday, November 14. It marks Greg Vaughan's debut as Eric Brady. Plus, there's a Joseph Mascolo (Stefano) sighting the very same day, when EJ phones and finally makes amends with his father.

Gee, do you think Sami and Eric will still have their ‘twin powers”???!!! Family members come and go SO often on Days you never know they existed! I still remember when Don Craig …Marlena’s ex husband…went out to mail a letter and never came back….right after their baby boy “DJ”baby died of ‘crib death’ back in the 80′s… strange Marlena never discusses losing a baby..especially with Sami and Hope or even poor Nicole…she IS a doctor after all…supposedly…wish I had ALL of their work schedules!!!! ;-)

Let Stefano stay this time DOOL!!!! Get rid of Chad, Gabi, Will, Sonny, Nick and that entire crew! And how pray tell… and just how did Kristine become a DiMera..when she and her brother Peter were born Blakes??? These writers are so dumb some time…they forget a LOT of us have watched the show forever…

(2) Janelle says:

I hope it’s Bo!!! LOL! I always hope EVERY mystery return is Bo! ;) Maybe someday I’ll get my wish…
Shawn D would be a nice surprise too. Although with Chloe, Eric, and Nick being recent returns, I suppose Philip, Greta, or Chelsea seem more likely.

November 13, 2012 at 12:43 pm
(3) A says:

I think the only possible return of any interest to me would be Matthew Ashford, but I don’t think he qualifies as “yesteryear” when he only left a few months ago. :( Please, Days, I want my Jack attacks back!

November 13, 2012 at 1:08 pm
(4) Mary says:

Wasn’t it spoiled eons ago that NB/Chloe was returning in Feb.?

November 13, 2012 at 1:36 pm
(5) roxanne says:

maybe its peter blake, CHloe has returned back in Sept will air in Jan so its not her. unless its Bo.maybe

November 13, 2012 at 1:41 pm
(6) Montira says:

Well, we already heard that Nadia Bjorlin will reprise her role as Chloe. If someone else is also coming back, it should be a Brady or Horton, since those families are the cornerstones of this show. That said, Will and Nick are both Hortons, so they should stay.
Stefano should also stay, since the show needs to maintain that balance of “goody-goody” and unadulterated evil.
Peggy, if you have been watching DAYS for a long time, then you’d know that Stefano “adopted” Kristen and Peter Blake, after he supposedly killed their parents.

November 13, 2012 at 1:48 pm
(7) Jeff says:

I got a better Idea that Peggy B. had, Keep the kids, Let John go back with kristine, and GET RID of Diedra Hall (Marlaina)

November 13, 2012 at 2:19 pm
(8) sapihia says:

I want Jack back ((Mathew ashford)!

November 13, 2012 at 2:56 pm
(9) CindyHaskins says:

I am a huge fan of marlena.I have to say that marlena is not going nowhere.also john and marlena are soulmate and the belong together.

November 13, 2012 at 5:41 pm
(10) Jake says:

Stephen Nichols? Wasn’t he also paired with Eileen Davidson on Y&R recently? Since his firt return was botched, would love it if the Steve we saw in 2006 was an imposter and Kristen has the real Steve.

November 13, 2012 at 7:09 pm
(11) Lou says:

they were talking to Sean D a few month ago

November 13, 2012 at 8:41 pm
(12) nmd says:

it not Bo, he just left……Chloe comes in January……i tgink its Stephen Nichols
in regards to Stefano-he has always come and gone. he is recurring.

November 14, 2012 at 12:41 am
(13) Mel says:

I would like to comment on will and sonny. I think that days has gone to far showing them in bed. I feel for all the senior citizens that watch everyday. You know that a lot of these wonderful people have been days fans for years. That’s what they look forward to each day is the soaps. I am also affended by it. I love days I have been watching since I was a kid. I record it everyday so I want miss it. I fast forward through that part of sonny and will. Please stop showing this stuff. You may loose a lot of your viewers because if this stuff. And I agree with one if the comments I read how in the world did Kristin become a deMira you writers do seem to forget that we have watched this show forever and we don’t forget .

November 14, 2012 at 12:59 am
(14) Darrin says:

well MEL, apparently you DID forget, that Stefano adopted Peter and Kristen years and years ago, before they came to salem, and that’s how she is a dimera, because her and peter both are, they were adopted by stefano.

November 14, 2012 at 1:02 am
(15) Darrin says:

and a lot of us do enjoy the will/sonny stuff, so if you don’t like it, then fast forward past it, don’t ruin it for the rest of us that do like it, and if it’s killing the ratings and really bad for the show, then WHY did chandler massey win an emmy this year, for portraying will as a gay character and his coming out story? Can’t be that bad of a storyline if it’s getting them emmy’s for the first time in a loooooong time.

November 14, 2012 at 3:23 am
(16) Kate says:

Excuse me, but I am sick of Marlena! Absolutely sick of
her! I agree with the above person! Kill Doc once and for
all! On another hand,why not bring back Marlena ‘s identical twin sister? Yes, she has been dead for lover 30 years, but everyone knows no one really die’s on soaps!
From yesteryear , how about Melissa? Or Rene?

November 14, 2012 at 8:58 am
(17) Voice of Reason says:

She was always Kristen Blake even after Stefano adopted them. Peter never changed his name either. She became Kristen Dimera when she married Tony/Andre (whichever one he happened to be at the time. I lost track) Mel, go make your negative comments on Will & Sonny on another page, we don’t have a problem with them on this site.

November 14, 2012 at 1:08 pm
(18) Colleen says:

Kristine Blake was adopted by Stefano lol she is half sister to Ej.

November 14, 2012 at 1:39 pm
(19) cheryl says:

i have watched my last episode of Days of Our Lives. The graphic displays between Will and Sonny are not appropriate for any tine on TV much less daytime TV

November 14, 2012 at 2:23 pm
(20) letha says:

i must vent
i am well aware of nicky’s history and the perfect women of salem also
and i gotta tell ya if jenifer gets daniel i may stop watching she was a relentless bitch about nicky and daniel so nicky loses everything including her baby she might not have pushed her physically but certainly emotionally and now she goes back to being miss perfect and gets everything including daniel .wow sound like those horton women can do all the wrong they want and stiill get everything for pete’s sake give nicky a break, after all she’s lost in the last year or so can’t she get something out of this and can’t one horton woman be accountable. hope may have went to prison but it really didn’t change her life any!

November 14, 2012 at 5:40 pm
(21) Kim says:

I’ve been wondering lately, just before John and Marlena left the show last time when John’s brain was addled…I seem to recall that John was portrayed as being Stefano’s brother, and EJ’s uncle, hmmmmm? did I dream that? that would make him Kristins Uncle too,n’est pas? sometimes I get confused when they all come back again and again and again. So are we now going to be retreated to repeat reunions between John & Kristen and Marlena & Roman???? one last note? i must have missed some dool show/s cause I thought EJ was not a Dimera after all?

November 14, 2012 at 8:31 pm
(22) Debbie says:

I agree with above comments, I don’t care to watch Sonny and Will in bed together. I have been watching for years and this is enough to make me stop. The line has been crossed and days has taken it too far.

November 14, 2012 at 9:00 pm
(23) Kristen says:

Kristen was stefanos foster/adopted child….for those of you who say you have watched a long time, how long have you been watching? I’m only 28, and even I know that….

On will and sonny…I don’t care either way- you complain about will and sonnys relationship when I have seen FAR worse sense between other couples, (men and women) get over it. There are gay people in the world…their story line is at least realistic, unlike marlena needing an exorcism…really?
Don’t be so close minded…and stop crying over a 2 min love scene on a 45 minute show. It’s pathetic. Honestly.

I would love to see Shawn d and belle come back with their daughter Claire.

November 14, 2012 at 10:17 pm
(24) Donna says:

It’s got to be Original Roman Brady

It’s got to be Original Roman Brady

November 15, 2012 at 2:33 am
(26) incredulous says:

Oh give me an f’ing break! You people always hijack the comings and goings page to go off on your homophobic crusade! Sonny and Will’s love scene was no more gratuitous and showed no more skin that Gabi and Nick’s! I can’t believe the hypocrisy on this board. And why is it that the bigots here also have the worst spelling and grammar?

November 15, 2012 at 10:01 am
(27) Kimber says:

I would love for the return to be Kimberly Brady, played by Patricia Pease!
Caroline and Kimberly could return home to Salem together!!!

November 15, 2012 at 11:43 am
(28) Voice of Reason says:

Good idea Kimber! I’ve often said that Kimberly should come back and run the pub!

November 15, 2012 at 2:00 pm
(29) Der says:

Its Patrika Darbo as Nancy.

November 15, 2012 at 2:49 pm
(30) tippy says:

I have been watching dool for 30 plus years and would Like to continue to be a fan. Watching Will and Sony is very distasteful. To some it may be ok ,but to others its not. Like others that have opinions of such I too fast forward because I do not care to watch it. If there’s any coming and going Will should stay and help raise his child and Sony should go.

November 16, 2012 at 2:14 am
(31) Kristen says:

So because its distasteful to some it just shouldn’t be on the show? That’s spare me- its no different than any other story line your bored with or hate GET OVER IT! STOP THE HATE!

November 16, 2012 at 1:45 pm
(32) pat hart says:

I was devistated when I learned that Peter Reckell was leaving. He and Hope ARE THE SHOW, and have been for many years. BRING HIM BACK AT ALL COSTS!!!!!! How do you plan to continue without him>>>>>>So many have gone and Come back for short stints—Your Killing DAYS!!!!!

November 19, 2012 at 6:04 pm
(33) LInda W says:

The Will and Sonny pairing is disgusting. Days should be ashamed of itself!!!!

November 19, 2012 at 6:06 pm
(34) bobbyjus says:

It’s not just gays having sex. There is toooooooo much sex in everything we watch. I fast forward all sex scenes even in books. We have left to our imaginations these days. I’m old but not dead yet. I like good looking men but they need to keep their darn clothes on. Just my opinion.

November 19, 2012 at 6:14 pm
(35) carla says:

those of you who like the gay thing need to stop telling us who don’t like the gay thing to be quiet we have as much right to voice our opinion as you do, gay people need to shut up about their sex lives cus it’s nobodys business but theirs why do we have to hear about it when us straight folks don’t go around shoving our sex lives in their faces, i mean come on we don’t need to know who’s gay much less watch that garbage on daytime tv . daytime tv should be censored just like nightime shows because there are kids who are at home and watch daytime tv. HELLOOO.

November 19, 2012 at 6:16 pm
(36) Irene says:

I don’t see it any worse than the sex between the heterosexuals. Some of the heterosexual scenes can almost be pornography. If there is any scene or story line I do not like, I fast forward or read a book. Or get myself a snack (lol). Everyone has a right to their own views without anyone getting nasty. And everyone has a right to be who they are.

November 19, 2012 at 6:18 pm
(37) Irene says:

I wrote a comment but I do not see it posted. Oh, well, I don’t feel like commenting again.

November 19, 2012 at 7:15 pm
(38) rondarose says:

As far as Will and Sonny are concerned, I’m fine with the relationship, but do we really need to go into their bedroom? That’s just more information than I really want to see. Also, the kissing in public is way over the top for this little conservative town. It seems very inappropriate when they are the only ones engaging in PDA. It just seems that the writers are going out of their way to make a statement, when most of us don’t see this in our everyday lives. I believe everyone should be able to do whatever they choose to do between consenting adults, but not in public, please.

November 19, 2012 at 7:33 pm
(39) Lisa says:

Mell up there in the messages!!! Why would senior citizens be offended with Sonny and Will in bed? They are gay, gay people go to,bed, and there are even old gay people. Get over it, or move on. There was a time when Black people couldn’t drink out of the same fountain. Can we all just be people without labels? What next, strokes because Gabi mentioned abortion?

Love the fact nacy and chloe are comming back .
The writters should also bring back shaun and Bell and there daughterthat would be so sweet

November 19, 2012 at 11:01 pm
(42) Bettina Braun says:

Sort but I can’t stand to watch 2 men kiss or 2 women kiss. I have to fast forward the scene. ..and just may have to quit the soap I’ve watched for almost 50 years.

November 20, 2012 at 1:28 am
(43) Joey G says:

Reading this forum is like watching the soap within itself. Firstly, congratulations to Chandler for his portrayal of Will Horton. Secondly, the beautiful storyline of Will and Sonny’s blooming love for one another has been one that makes for good “daytime tv”(referring to soaps, which for people who have kids and don’t want them to see adult television, maybe they should have their kids go play or do something to entertain themselves like my mother did when I was younger). If you consider a well done love scene offensive, try reading some of the remarks by those same offended people who think it’s alright for their kids to pick-up the Godly values of murder, deceitfulness, drug use, kidnapping, etc., and the most hideous crime of all, not being able to spell words like offended…dun..dun…duhhhhh!!(that’s for dramatic effect, in case you did not know). Have fun fast-forwarding my remarks. Days, you are doing a wonderful job, as always!

November 20, 2012 at 1:46 am
(44) mp says:

are we going to see double break up between Sonny and Will and Nick and Gabi are we going to see Sami and Lucas are grandparents why Nick tell Sonny what Chad is doing to Gaby will Chad expose Gabi for Melanie’s abduction and accessory to kidnapping can Chad tell Sonny about Gabi did to him and Melanie. I want to see Chad to tell the truth what Gabi did to Melanie to avoid jail time Daniel and Maggie has the right to know.

November 20, 2012 at 1:58 am
(45) Joey G says:

That would be amazing: Sami kidnaps Gabi’s baby and has Stephano adopt him/her. Why? So, no one will know that she is a Grandma!

November 20, 2012 at 9:06 am
(46) Lois says:

I am an elderly person and find the Will/Sonny relationship/scenes OK. They are gay! Lets take our heads out of the sand and accept people for who they are and that includes soap opera characters. Why should Will and Gabi marry? So they can please the tight asses who watch Days? Don’t you get it? They would be miserable! And no, Days did not go too far! Life is what it is and please don’t use the elderly as an excuse for your criticism. We are not dumb or unfamiliar with what life brings.

November 20, 2012 at 9:32 am
(47) Emma says:

Chad, Gabbie, Abagail, Sonny, Nick – get rid of ‘em and get rid of Jennifer (AGAIN). i’M SICK OF HER “HANG DOG” LOOK! glad to see Kristen back. Sonny & Will make me gag. Been watchng this show since the 60s. Now I tape it so I can zip thru 2/3 of the show with the above mentioned “stars”. Love it that Stefano is back and love Brady Black’s performances, Victor, Maggie and Nicole have been just wonderful – have added so much excitement to the show. I’m sick of Hope, too – time to get a facelift. Really do miss Bo – hope he reconsiders and comes back.

November 20, 2012 at 1:18 pm
(48) Michael says:

I like Sonny/Will relationship and went well!! Congratulations!! I hope One of these days Bo will come back. Gladly new casts as Eric Brady is back and hope solves the problems for everyone. Nicole will need find love and continue being “good woman” instead evil on other lives. Jennifer can starting relationship with Daniel because they are too kind and gentle. Also funny too. :-) John and Marlena can continue grow love and don t let Kristen in your way. Kristen needs to back off all of Brady schemes. I would like Sami stays with Rafe. E J can go with Nicole as friend maybe dating beginning. I love to watch Days since 85. Enjoying watch ahead til the end.

November 21, 2012 at 3:50 pm
(49) Janiebell says:

I do so hope Bo returns with Caroline.; {I mean the same Bo that left with Caroline} We viewers have come to love this Bo. He has been on Days so long that NO ONE could replace him.

November 21, 2012 at 10:00 pm
(50) Shelley says:

Poor Nicky? give me a break …Love the actress but she has been one of the most conniving sneaky evil b*tches ever on dool. She has murdered at least one Man. Stolen babies etc etc … The character is awesome ..but poor Nicky shes not.

November 23, 2012 at 12:18 am
(51) Sandee says:

I do not watch days of our lives to watch gays kiss I have watched days for at least 35 years and now it is ruined. NBC has turned to nothing the trash.. but it seems like the whole world has turned soddom and gamara… remember what happened then just sayin

November 25, 2012 at 8:38 pm
(52) Daysfan1987 says:

I agree with Incredulous. I have been watching since 1987. The scenes with Will and Sonny were quick. Nothing too sexual. I applaud Days for bringing foward a gay storyline. You can pretend it doesn’t happen around you but it does. Those who don’t like to watch it, turn the channel or go make a sandwich. Days is appealing to everyone, not just the old timers who can’t bear to watch them kiss. Get with the times or go watch PBS, if they are even around anymore. Sad.

December 20, 2012 at 2:21 pm
(53) s says:

Daniels mother is Maggie, which is Jennifers Aunt…. So are they blood relatives or just by marriage? sl
