This weekend is every Days of our Lives fan’s favorite time of year — Day of Days! This year’s festivities concluded with an in-person event for the first time in two years and with it came an absolutely soap-gasmic preview of what’s to come on the Peacock soap opera. Let’s break it down shall we?
All Divas Go To Heaven
We knew from the last big promo that Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) was going to heaven. What we didn’t know is that Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate (Lauren Koslow) are set to join her! The orchid goes missing, rendering all three women fatally ill once again. We may be shedding a few tears this Christmas as we watch our faves slowly fade away with their loved ones by their side. Even though we know they are going to survive, I am excited for the emotional journey we are about to take.
A Supercouple Returns
The cat is finally officially out of the bag! Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso are returning to Days of Our Lives! Everyone who watched Beyond Salem 2 prayed for this moment and here it is. A captured Bo awakens to Megan asking for the whereabouts of his Fancy Face. Meanwhile, Steve (Stephen Nichols) and John (Drake Hogestyn) track down an in-the-wild Hope. As mentioned above, The Orchid goes missing so I’m guessing the search for The Orchid lead John and Steve straight to Hope.
We also know Victoria Konefal will be reprising her role as Ciara Brady Weston. With the additions of Miranda Wilson and Steve Burton as Megan Hathaway DiMers and Harris Michaels, this could be shaping up to be one of the strongest stories of 2023.
And Baby Makes….
Its the moment Ericole fans have been waiting for since Eric returned. Eric and Nicole finally admitted their feelings and want to be together. Their reunion won’t be going as planned with the reveal that Jada is pregnant. Nicole does not seem thrilled as the promo has her basically trying to convince Jada not to have the Baby and Eric tells her to butt out. When this story kicked off last week I was intrigued. The potential angst here could be amazing. This part of the promo is now making me apprehensive .
I don’t want Jada to lose the baby at the hands of Nicole or for Nicole to do something she regrets out of fear. (Like potentially screwing EJ on NYE). I want Ericole angst without Ericole getting destroyed in the process.
Chanel’s Secret Revealed
After weeks of speculation the big secret is out. Chanel killed Sloan’s mother. This was NOT the secret I was expecting. I was expecting a party gone wrong and her college roomate was presumably killed. I”m intrigued to see where this goes. Raven is a powerhouse and deserves a moment to shine. Let this lead to a real story for Chanel and Challie both. Lindsey and Raven are too good to be wasted as support for other characters. Their story has been lacking since they got together and I hope this is a way to rectify that.
- Emmy winner Chandler Massey is returning as Will Horton.
- The push/pull between Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) continues.
- Stephanie and Alex (Robert Scott Wilson) will be hittimg the sheets.
- An explosion rocks Salem.
