What hap­pens after Days goes dark on SABC3

Like sands through the hour­glass, we’re re­ally go­ing to miss Days Of Our Lives.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - FRONT PAGE -

tv­plus has been writ­ing about Days Of Our Lives with joy, hi­lar­ity, hor­ror and fas­ci­na­tion for the past 15 years. And we’ll be join­ing South African Days fans in say­ing an ab­so­lutely heart­bro­ken good­bye when SABC3 airs its fi­nal episode on Wed­nes­day 20 July as part of its plan to in­crease lo­cal con­tent (see more on p4). But while it’s “so long Salem” for South Africa, it’s not the end of the story. So with a big SPOILER ALERT, here’s how our favourite char­ac­ters’ cur­rent sto­ry­lines tie up, along with some of the most sen­sa­tional drama that we’re go­ing to miss out on…


The last we’ll see: EJ (James Scott) works to get Sami (Ali­son Sweeney) out of jail for killing crooked cop Bernardi (An­thony Tyler Quinn). Then ’til now: Ste­fano (Joseph Mas­colo) hands over the ra­zor that proves Sami’s in­no­cence, and Sami and Kate (Lau­ren Koslow) help Gabi (Camila Banus) to cover up Gabi’s sup­posed mur­der of Nick (Blake Ber­ris) by dump­ing the body in the Salem River. But Nick’s last will and tes­ta­ment leads to Sami be­ing sent pho­tos prov­ing that EJ has been hav­ing an af­fair with Abby (Kate Mansi), so Sami gets EJ ar­rested on their wed­ding day. After Nick re­turns in a black­mail­ing mood, Gabi mur­ders him and is sen­tenced to 10 years in jail. Then Sami’s left heart­bro­ken when EJ is shot and killed by ri­val druglord Clyde Weston (James Read) and she moves to Hol­ly­wood. She re­turns to Salem when Will (then played by Guy Wil­son) is mur­dered by the Neck­tie Killer – re­ally Abby’s boyfriend Ben Rogers (Robert Scott Wil­son), who turns out to be Clyde’s son. Then Sami es­capes kid­nap­per An­dre DiMera (Thaao Pengh­lis) and goes on the run with her kids.

EJ is go­ing to die. We asked but e.tv says that there are, sadly, no plans to pick up Days.

Kate, Sami and Gabi try to dump Nick’s body.

Hope shoots Ste­fano in a rage. Is this re­ally the end of Ste­fano?
