Charles Shaughnessy returns as Shane Donovan on May 3. Things heat up between Sami and Lucas! EJ discovers a document containing life-changing information. An explosion shakes Salem.



  1. Stefano’s known for kiddnapping kids, Ej probably not his. I think the shows going for a Nichole/Ej/Rafe story line meaning Lucas and Sami should be safe to be together for a while. :)

  2. Not too excited about this week. Too much EJ begging Nicole and Lucas/Sami part 23948298 didn’t interest me the first time around. They’re like watching a brother and sister hang out. I am excited to see Shane returning and very curious to see what document EJ finds…I’d be surprised if he finds out he’s not Stefano’s so soon but who knows at this point!
