There’s noth­ing that Lexie Carver (Renée Jones) can do to stop her im­pend­ing death. On Tues­day 26 May, she told her half-brother Chad (Casey Dei­drick), “There comes a time when ac­cep­tance is the only choice we have, okay? I’m not go­ing to spend the rest of my time chas­ing af­ter some­thing that can never hap­pen. This is the time for me. For peo­ple I love.” With the clock tick­ing away, she’s determined to en­joy what time she has left, be­cause death is com­ing for Lexie in early July…


Days is tak­ing time to hon­our Renée’s char­ac­ter, who first ap­peared in 1993, with a send- off that’s all about cel­e­brat­ing love, life and fam­ily. “I didn’t want a hor­ri­ble can­cer death,” re­veals Renée. “I wor­ried about my mother be­cause my sis­ter died of can­cer a few years ago and my mom watches the show re­li­giously and I didn’t want her to have to watch that. So they came up with the idea of a brain tu­mour. There will be lots of cry­ing, lots of good­byes, but it will be very beau­ti­ful.”


On Thurs­day 28 May, Lexie an­nounces that she’s re­fus­ing treat­ment and wants to en­joy the time she has. Then she presents a bucket list of things she’d like to do be­fore she dies. Like bungee jump­ing, see­ing Paris in spring, mak­ing video di­aries for Theo (Ter­rell Ran­som Jr) when he’s older and get­ting Abe (James Reynolds) his job as mayor back.

On Tues­day 9 June, Abe helps Lexie pre­pare to travel to Paris with her whole fam­ily. Even EJ (James Scott) pitches in by ar­rang­ing a pri­vate jet for his beloved sis­ter. But when Lexie gets some bad news and it looks like the trip is off, the fam­ily helps Abe to pull off a won­der­ful sur­prise for her…


Bev­erly Todd, who now plays Lexie’s ma Ce­leste Per­rault, played Vir­ginia in the 2008 movie The Bucket List. Look out for this hi­lar­i­ous mo­ment on 28 May when Days plays cheeky trib­ute to Bev­erly’s role when Ce­leste says, “What a won­der­ful idea! I loved that movie. The actress who played Mor­gan Free­man’s wife? I al­ways thought that she looked so familiar…”

Abe’s determined

to make Lexie’s dreams come true.
