We already knew this but there is news about this on Michael Fairman’s website and I am thrilled by this news! (My hope is that Days will reconsider it’s tragic decisions of the past 6 months and bring back Eve and esp. WILL). I would be willing to forgive Days for cheating and bringing Will back, played by Chandler Massey. unlikely, but at least give Paul more story and bring back Derek! So looking forward to Freddie’s return!
I’m so glad he’s back and looking forward to more details about it. July is not too much longer to wait! Man, it would be so so great if they got Chandler Massey back as well. The character’s return from the dead wouldn’t be much less realistic than most of the other stuff happening on the show now.
DAYS is apparently bringing back over 10+ people (6 we already know being Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), James Read (Clyde Weston), Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis), Jamie Lynn Bauer (Laura Horton) and Daniel Cosgrove (Aiden Jennings) )
Interesting. James Read is coming back? UGH, getting rid of Clyde was possibly the best thing that happened in the last regime change.
I’m pretty underwhelmed by that list of six, other than Freddie Smith and maybe Jamie Lynn Bauer. I guess I don’t mind if they’re going to be short visits, but there are others I’d rather see return for the long term, like… Christie Clark!!!!!
Of course my immediate thought was also that if they’re bringing back 10 or more people, maybe one of them would be Christie Clark as Carrie! My mom is concerned that the showing moving forward with Hope and Rafe’s pairing might mean that Carrie’s story options would be limited, but I assured her that not only could Carrie find plenty to do outside of being paired with Rafe, but also Hope and Carrie being aunt and niece sure doesn’t need to stop them from being romantic rivals. All of the love triangles on CBS are with siblings or parent and child.
I’d read already about all of these except for James Read, and they all seemed fine. I think Matthew Ashford is only doing one episode, right? And Jaime Lynn Bauer said she’d only done a few episodes so far when she talked about her return. I was excited by the prospect of some Belle/Shawn/Phillip/Chloe stories, but with Belle and Shawn gone again, I guess we won’t be getting much of those, if any. I can’t even guess what deal with Daniel Cosgrove will be.
If I were dream picking the other four/five: Christie Clark, Eileen Davidson, Alison Sweeney, James Scott and Chandler Massey, but I’d also be happy to see Billy Warlock, Krista Allen/Lisa Rinna, Austin Peck, and Kassie DePaiva, who still seems like she could just show up any time, even if Phillip did offhandedly mention that Claire’s music teacher left town.
