Sami (Alison Sweeney) is in jail, Kristen’s (Eileen Davidson) working on a sex scandal, Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) furious with John (Drake Hogestyn), Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) are back together… Yes, Days Of Our Lives (1965- current) is rising from the ashes like Salem’s wicked phoenix Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo), on SABC3 from Monday 22 August. 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.
We’ve been mourning the fact that we were going to miss so many gripping Days stories, but now that it’s back, here are just five jaw- dropping stories that will be worth staying up late for… We’ll see Patch and Bo return.
