Days of our Lives comings and goings confirm Paige Larson (True O’Brien) is back, and the revolving door also brings back Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and brother Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). But four big exits are coming in big casting shakeups at DOOL.
Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: Paige Larson Back for Eve Donovan
DOOL casting shockers confirm that long-dead Paige Larson is back by the end of this week. However, it’s doubtful she returned to the land of the living. Instead, we expect a ghostly return of Paige as her mother, Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva), grieves her loss.
Originally, Days of our Lives scheduled Paige Larson’s return in September, on the actual anniversary of her death. Expected sports preemptions drove that date. Without most sports at play, we’ll see the Paige death-aversary airing earlier than anticipated. Eve sees Paige soon.
Of course, kindly Paige Larson may criticize Eve’s extreme revenge plans on Days of our Lives. It’s true that Eve’s wrath is justified, but has she gone overboard? Wait to see what Paige says in her ghostly visit to her mother starting at the end of this week on DOOL on NBC daytime.
DOOL Comings and Goings: Rafe & Gabi Hernandez Back to Salem Already
We haven’t even said goodbye yet to Gabi and Rafe. However, already they’re headed back to Days of our Lives. The show resumes filming on Monday, August 31, and we’ve heard Galen and Camila will be there, stepping back into the roles of the Hernandez siblings.
There’s no word yet from Days of our Lives spoilers how they’ll write the very short-term exit for both Rafe and sister Gabi. Coming soon on the NBC sudser, Gabi gets intimate with Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash), driving his bae Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) insane with jealousy.
Meanwhile, across town on Days of our Lives, Rafe gets close to Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso), and they share a kiss. Then, he’ll leave for a hot minute. But, watch for Gabi to return – as well as Rafe. And, they won’t be gone long. So, many fans jump for joy at the news.
4 Exits Ahead on Days of our Lives – Eric, Sonny, Will & Hope
DOOL cast changes include four characters cycling out of Salem, and two of those exits sound permanent. Eric Brady leaves in September, and it’s doubtful Greg Vaughan will be back. The actor said he felt like a “glorified extra.” Now, he works on other projects post-Days of our Lives.
As for Hope Brady, actress Kristian Alfonso also seems intent on making her NBC soap exit permanent. She shared that she’s open to another soap role – and we’ve heard she may be talking to Young and the Restless about a role there. So, it looks like Hope’s gone unless DOOL recasts.
The other two Days of our Lives exits are Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) and Will Horton (Chandler Massey). However, these two might come back to Salem. Remember, NBC shocked the actors by not renewing their contracts. They seem open to returning.
