Days of our Lives social media buzz is on fire with all the reasons why Andre DiMera is still alive. Days fans have been speculating for months that Andre (Thaao Penghlis) may not be dead after all. DOOL fans have noticed a lot of “Andre” name dropping lately and feel strongly it is a hint that Andre will return from the dead. Just because Thaao has been removed from DOOL credits does not mean Andre will not be returning, why would Days producers leave his name if they want fans to think Andre is dead?
Recently we have seen the return of Will Brady(Chandler Massey) and Vivian Alamaine (Louise Sorel)who were brought back to life with the resurrection serum that mad scientist Dr. Rolf (William Utay)created.
Unfortunately, Rolf committed suicide in a hotel room in Memphis after he was cornered by Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Sami Brady (Allison Sweeney) but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t plenty more serum or at least the ingredients left behind to make more.
Vivian’s mystery visitor
Last week we saw someone walk into the room where Vivian had been revived from her state of death and based on her reaction she was not too happy to see whoever it was. Speculation is running rampant all over social media including Twitter that it was Andre who came into the room to see Vivian. If it was it would explain her reaction. It would also help out quite a few characters taking them all in different directions preparing us for some serious returns.
Bringing characters back from the dead is Carlivati’s style
New head writer, Ron Carlivati is famous for bringing dead characters back to life it was definitely his style on ABC’s General Hospital. Carlivati was very creative in his resurrecting characters from the dead and Days fans can be sure none of that creativity has changed. One of the best additions Carlivati has brought on board is Tyler Christopher (Stefan DiMera)who played Nikolas Cassadine on GH. Ron loves his sinister characters that are invincible and Andre is no exception.
If Andre is alive he spares Abby more turmoil
DOOL fans know that Abigail (Marci Miller) has just struck a deal for murdering Andre that will keep her out of jail, but it will require that she leave her husband Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) and their young son Thomas in order to go seek inpatient treatment for her DID.
If Andre is alive then that means that Abby would be off the hook for his murder and could seek the help she desperately needs on her own terms and with the support of her friends and family rather than being locked away. Andre being alive would turn all of the Days storylines on their heads, Gabi Hernandez (Camille Banus) and Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) would be helped immensely also.
Thaao hints at Andre return
While being interviewed by After Buzz’s Tony Moore on the 2018 Daytime Red Carpet Moore says We’ve been dealing with Andre’s death for so long, Penghlis says “yes like a funeral that never finishes” Penghlis said “well you know I’ve died 7 times I have 2 more lives left”
In another interview at the 2018 Daytime Emmy awards, Thaao was asked about a possible Andre return. Thaao certainly didn’t rule it out. He told reporters “Andre is never truly dead and just when you think you’ve killed him he rises again.”
This certainly seems to be true as Andre has survived several attempts on his life over the years and much like his father the late Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) Andre has literally risen like a Phoenix from the ashes of death.
Tell us what you think. Would you welcome an Andre return? How do you think Salem would react to Andre coming back from the dead again? Could Abby handle it and would it ease her guilt knowing that she didn’t kill her brother in law or would it send her further down the rabbit hole?
