On soap operas you'd find that a number of characters may be killed off due to the actors choice to leave, storyline issues or other reasons. In light of William Utay's return as Dr. Rolf on soaps, today, we look at 'Days of Our Lives' history and there are a number of characters we want back. Nobody ever really stays dead on a daytime soap opera although a few of these characters have been ‘dead’ for years. Here are the 7 dead characters we want back most:
Bo Brady [ex-Peter Reckell]
Some fans may say it’s time to move on, but Hope’s [Kristian Alfonso] most significant pairing to date was with Bo Brady; it’s one of the reason we want him back so badly. Bo died in 2015 in Hope’s arm and it was a pretty emotional episode.
EJ DiMera [ex-James Scott]
EJ was killed in 2014 where the character was shot. At the morgue his sister, Kristen [ex-Eileen Davidson] was seen injecting him with an unknown substance as ordered by Stefano [ex-Stefano DiMera]. We know this was done so that in future the character can be brought back and we're hoping it happens soon.
Jack Deveraux [ex-Matthew Ashford]
Jack died in August, 2012 after being trapped inside an elevator that fell and crashed. Since then Ashford has made a number of ghostly appearances in scenes with his on screen wife, Jennifer [Melissa Reeves].
Daniel Jonas [ex-Shawn Christian]
In 2016, Daniel met his demise after a car crash caused by Eric Brady [Greg Vaughan]. His memory continues to live on as Chloe [Nadia Bjorlin] gave birth to Holly, Daniel's and Nicole’s [Arianne Zucker] baby. And, Brady [Eric Martsolf] was given his heart. Bringing him back alive now would be such a treat, as he and Nicole could finally have the life they dreamed of. Unfortunately, Nicole will be exiting the canvas next Friday.
Lexie Carver [ex-Renee Jones]
In late June of 2012, Lexie passed away in the arms of her true love, Abe [James Reynold]. It’s been over 5 years and we still think bringing Lexie back is a good idea. Especially since her son Theo [Kyler Pettis] is all grown up, Abe has a daughter Lani [Sal Stowers] and Abe has moved on with Valerie [Vanessa A. Williams]. Despite Renee Jones being retired we're hoping some changes are made in the future.
Arianna Hernandez [ex-Lindsay Hartley]
Arianna died in November, 2010 where she ran away from Will [Chandler Massey] onto the road and was hit down by a car; she died days later in the hospital. Bringing her back now would be great for the Hernandez family and possibly for Brady [Eric Martsolf] who is about to be a single man when Nicole (Arianne Zucker) leaves.
Will Horton [ex-Chandler Massey/Guy Wilson]
Will was killed by the necktie killer, Ben [ex-Robert Scott Wilson] in 2015 or so we were led to believe. Will, being a legacy character was always important on the canvas hence our joy when we heard that Chandler Massey was set to reprise the role. Although, he's only set to be on the show for a while we're hoing the character is brought back full time whether in the form of Chandler or Guy Wilson.
In different ways bringing back each of the characters aforementioned has great potential to different story plots. What are your thoughts ‘Days’ fans?
