Days of our Lives comings and goings reveal Dr. Wilhelm Rolf (William Utay) pops up, and Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) gets a recast and some revenge next week. Plus, there’s a key actress swap coming soon to the NBC soap. Here are the latest ins and outs at DOOL.
Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: District Attorney Melinda Trask Recast – Ready for Revenge
It’s been more than a year since DA Melinda Trask (then Laura Kai Chen) was in Salem. Since then, her daughter Haley Chen (Thia Megia) died, and her killer got away with it. Now, DA Trask gets another shot to punish Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) – using another crime as an excuse.
Remember, Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) arrested Kristen on Days of our Lives. Next week, Kristen’s stunned as recast Melinda shows up vowing vengeance for her daughter’s murder. So, Trask won’t drop the charges for Kristen stabbing Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) on the NBC soap.
But, Days of our Lives spoilers insists the DA faces an obstacle since Brady Black’s (Eric Martsolf) fighting hard to save his love. So, as recast DA Trask plots to throw the book at Kristen, Brady convinces Victor to instead blame him for the crime. Will Melinda let this slide on DOOL?
DOOL Ins & Outs: Dr. Wilhelm Rolf Secret Partner Revealed
Other Days of our Lives comings and goings action involves shady Dr. Wilhelm Rolf. Although Rolf’s still in prison, he’s been busy. And Dr. Rolf has a co-conspirator on the outside. It’s Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) who’s drugging Abigail Deveraux (Marci Miller) on Wilhelm Rolf’s orders.
Wait to see on Days of our Lives how Dr. Rolf’s connected to Gwen. Maybe she’s a minion of Rolf. Or perhaps Dr. Wilhelm Rolf spawned her along the way while doing DiMera dirty work. Either way, watch for intense scenes as Gwen comes to see Rolf at the prison to plot.
And with the reveal that Gwen’s the one that set up Gabi Herandez (Camila Banus) and drugged Abby, on Days of our Lives, expect to see more of Wilhelm Rolf. There’s a significant DiMera plot afoot, driven by Rolf, and we’ve only seen the tip. Watch for more with Wilhelm Rolf and Gwen.
Jennifer Horton Actress Swap – Days of our Lives Casting News
Other DOOL news reveals that there’s a temporary recast of the role of Jennifer Horton. In the short term, Cady McClain is now taping at the NBC soundstage as Jennifer. Remember, Days of our Lives stayed dark longer than other soaps because they had extra months of episodes stored.
Meanwhile, Melissa Reeves wanted to stay home in Tennessee awhile longer instead of filming Days of our Lives. First, there are COVID concerns, and she’d be far from family. Second, she’s devoting lots of time to her new grandchild. So, for now, look for Cady to play Jennifer Horton.
But the larger news is that Salem’s district attorney is recast and guns with both barrels for Kristen. Plus, Wilhelm Rolf may reveal some of his dastardly DiMera schemes soon while gabbing with his partner in crime, Gwen, on DOOL on NBC.
