Days of Our Lives spoilers have Ted Laurent meet his maker as Gilles Marini bows out of the NBC sudser this week. But he’s not the only face leaving town. Plus, there’s big character returns back to Salem for some exciting plot twists. Many DOOL fans shared their disappointment on social media that such a talented actor was cut and a character as complex as Ted Laurent would leave.

Days of Our Lives Exits in August: Ted Laurent Leaves – Gilles Marini’s Last Day and Other Big Exits

DOOL spoilers for this week show that Ted Laurent’s dead early this week. He unwisely confronts Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) and catches a bullet for his trouble. Then, his exit’s pretty soapy. Somehow, skinny Kristen manages to shove his muscular body into a steamer trunk with the help of Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis). So, the last we see of Gilles Marini’s handsome face is her closing the lid and snapping the latches on the luggage.

So, that’s the last of Ted Laurent, right? Officially, Gilles Marini’s last scene is Tuesday, August 6, but it’s Salem. Resurrections are standard at this point, so never say dead on Days of Our Lives. But Ted Laurent’s not the only exit this month. Another handsome face leaves town, too. That’s Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams). Now, Tripp’s crushing on Haley Chen (Thia Megia) and dealing with her PTSD.

But, Tripp Dalton realizes he’s crossing lines getting way too close to JJ Deveraux’s (Casey Moss) girl. Soon, Tripp goes to Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) to confess getting meds for Haley. This leads to his exit arc as Tripp knows he needs some distance. So, we’ll see Tripp Dalton’s cute face saunter out of Salem on Tuesday, August 27 as Lucas Adams wraps his current run on Days of Our Lives.

Another DOOL Exit: Rex Brady Leaves Town Sad and Alone?

Days of Our Lives spoilers promise another exit this week as Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) explodes on his wife Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey). She told him she loves his brother Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan). Plus, then she rolls right into bed with Eric. But first, Rex Brady smashes Eric in the jaw in anger and frustration. And, he has a boozy night out with Xander Cook (Paul Telfer). Then, Rex Brady’s last scenes are Friday, August 9.

There’s some fun stuff happening in Rex Brady’s final hours in town. Even though he cheated on Sarah many times, Rex still feels slighted by her falling for his brother. Maybe that’s because what he was doing was sex and she got emotional. Clearly, Rex Brady doesn’t see the hypocrisy. He also takes some parting cheap shots at Sarah telling her Eric will always put Nicole first in his heart. Then he exits alone, reveal Days of Our Lives spoilers.

Days of Our Lives: Three Big Returns Heading for Salem Soon

This week, DOOL spoilers say Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) hits town and makes a beeline for resurrected soul mate Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis). Tony ditches fake sister-wife Kristen ASAP because he wants a rapid reunion. This is a classic love story that excites longtime watchers, so buckle up for that debut coming early this week.

Also, this month, Days of Our Lives spoilers have Jordan Ridgeway (Chrishell Stause) back on the scene. She remains in Bayview with little hope of getting out because she’s nuttier than a pecan pie. But she’ll reveal her baby daddy at long last. Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) tries to get permanent custody of the kid, but he might find out that’s his biological son he’s raising. Wait and see.

And a month from now, brace yourself because recast Vivian Alamain (Robin Strasser) debuts. Although DOOL spoilers haven’t declared officially that’s who she’ll play, that’s where all the signs point. She’s back for 15-ish episodes. With her precious son in the crosshairs of bad girl Kristen, you can bet she’s back to do battle on his behalf. So, don’t miss a moment of the NBC soap because things are popping this Fall.
