The soapie, which was orig­i­nally pulled from South African screens dur­ing SABC3’s hur­ried ef­forts to show­case 90% lo­cal con­tent, will be pick­ing up where it left off back on Wed­nes­day 20 July. It might take fans a while to get used to its new late­late-late night times­lot at 23:30, but for now we’re happy to have it back. There’s so much ex­cite­ment in store!

LAST MONTH IN SALEM

When we last tuned into Days on Wed­nes­day 20 July, this is where we left our big­gest sto­ry­lines…

Sami’s in jail for shoot­ing cop Joe Bernardi (An­thony Tyler Quinn) – se­cretly Ste­fano’s hench­man who had been sent by his boss to cas­trate Sami’s ex Rafe (Galen Ger­ing) while Rafe was in a coma fol­low­ing an at­tack by Jensen (Derek Mag­yar), the guy who raped Nick (Blake Ber­ris) in prison. Sami’s in deep trou­ble be­cause Bernardi’s al­leged mur­der weapon is miss­ing and Abby Dev­er­aux (Kate Mansi) has a video of Sami fight­ing with Bernardi ear­lier. EJ (James Scott) is work­ing to get Sami out of jail but that means mak­ing a deal with Ste­fano.

John’s son Brady (Eric Mart­solf) dumped Kris­ten the day be­fore their wed­ding af­ter Mar­lena ex­posed Kris­ten and John’s sex- ca­pades – they’d tricked one an­other into ho­tel sex, both hop­ing to break Brady’s heart (Kris­ten for revenge on John and John to get Brady to dump Kris­ten for good). Kris­ten, who’s de­vel­oped real feel­ings for Brady, is out to make Mar­lena pay by de­stroy­ing Mar­lena’s son Eric (Greg Vaughan).

a lot of emo­tional tur­moil has been cleared fol­low­ing Sonny and Will’s at­tempted res­cue of Nick and his then-preg­nant wife Gabi (Camila Banus), who’d been kid­napped by Nick’s prison rapist Jensen. Nick has sur­ren­dered his ho­mo­pho­bia-based claim to Will’s baby with Gabi com­pletely, while Gabi is di­vorc­ing Nick and mov­ing in with Will and Sonny.

Jennifer Dev­er­aux’s (Melissa Reeves) rather dull life has been stepped up since her son JJ (Casey Moss) was ex­pelled for deal­ing drugs. Aside from driv­ing a wedge be­tween his mom and Daniel (Shawn Chris­tian) with his snotty at­ti­tude, JJ is steal­ing and deal­ing drugs. Jennifer is still buy­ing his lies but she can’t deny the truth for much longer.
