‘Days of our Lives’ Comings & Goings: Rolf & New Vivian – Plus 3 Huge Ins & Outs

Days of our Lives comings and goings tell us Dr. Rolf (William Utay) drops by for Christmas plus there’s a brand new Vivian Alamain. That means Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash) gets a mommy visit. Plus, there are two returns ahead and a brand new role comings on DOOL.

Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: Dr. Rolf Back – With a Strange Gift

DOOL casting tells us that Dr. Rolf is back this week. Lately, when we’ve seen Rolf, he’s been with sketchy Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien). Now, though, Rolf finds Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) at Statesville. It seems Dr. Rolf has a special Christmas gift for her.

Days of our Lives comings and goings say Dr. Rolf will come and go as he chats with Kristen on Friday the 18th and hands her a present. But what could Rolf give Kristen? All she wants is to be with her family. You never know what you’re going to get with Dr. Rolf.

Two New Ladies to the NBC Soap Opera

Days of our Lives comings and goings also tell us Jake’s wicked mom, Vivian, gets a new face. Louise Sorel originated the role and played it to the nines as Stefan DiMera’s (Tyler Christopher/Barash) mom. But then her schedule got crowded, and Robin Strasser stepped up as they introduced his twin brother.

Now, another soap legend launches as Vivian — this time Linda Dano — as the Days of our Lives she-villain. You might know her from General Hospital, Another World, One Life to Live, or All My Children. Dano’s certainly an exciting addition.

Also coming to Days of our Lives is Jackee Harry, who pitched herself to showrunner Ron Carlivati and landed a role. We’ll bring you more information about her new part as soon as it’s available. For now, expect her to roll into Salem in early 2021.

Tony & Anna DiMera Pop up on Days of our Lives

Just as the holidays kick off, Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) comes to town and hangs out with his new brother, Jake. Along with Tony is Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley), who’s happy to meet the mechanic but less than impressed with his ex, who’s now the naughty nanny.

Could it be, on Days of our Lives, that Anna knows Gwen from Europe? Or perhaps Mrs. DiMera gets a bad vibe from the vixen. She’ll issue a dire warning to the DiMeras and Deverauxs not to trust the Brit. Soon, Gwen’s outed. So, maybe Tony’s wife has a hand in that. We’ll have to wait and see.

Tune in next week to see Dr. Rolf playing Santa handing strange presents to lonely bad girls in prison. This should be fun on the NBC sudser.
