Days of Our Lives: Look Who's Back!

at .  Updated at . Comments


No one can say Days of Our Lives doesn't know how to do religious celebrations. The beautiful ceremony, the annoying family, the flashbacks of drownings and sex romps…and then that one guest who arrives late.

A Shocking Guest

I guess Nick had a pretty good excuse. Everyone thought he was dead.

I really didn't think they'd bring Nick back quite so soon but what a return it was. As Julie, Hope and Abby all looked thrilled, you could practically feel everyone else's hearts plummet. Because as bad as it was covering up his murder, having Nick Fallon alive is much, much worse. 

Their only hope is that the bump on the head caused a case of amnesia because if Nick remembers what happened, he's going to make everyone pay. 

But even before the doors opened, the christening was great fun as everyone except Abigail looked at Julie like she was the crazy old aunt in the family. If it weren't for the fact that she was right, I'd agree with EJ. I think she's watched a few too many Murder She Wrote reruns. 

Just getting to the church was a challenge as Kate and Sami had to hold Gabi together once again. Only in Salem do you need a pep talk before a baby's christening. Of course in this town, getting through a church ceremony resembles running an obstacle course with live ammo. It pays to move through it quickly and keep your head down. 

Thankfully there were plenty of sweet moments too. Will and Gabi acknowledged how truly blessed they were to be raising their beautiful daughter. Sami and Lucas looked almost content as they shared time with their grandchild.

And even Kate and Sami got along…"Sometimes I really like you. It's so disorienting."

Even funnier was Sami gushing about what a great role model Abby was and then pushing EJ to do whatever it took to shut her up once again.

If she only knew what she was asking…

I couldn't believe it when EJ asked Abby why she slept with him. What a great way to turn the tables. The man really is a master at manipulation.  

If there was any question as to why…it's because EJ is smoking hot and Abby can't seem to help herself. I'm almost surprised she didn't rip his clothes off right there in the church. 

Thankfully Nick's return made up for an otherwise lackluster week on Days as Eric and Nicole spent most of it in separate hospital beds, Brady got drunk once again, and Teresa worked her mediocre powers on Daniel. 

Teresa might want to take notes from Salem's newest bad girl in the making…Ciara Brady. I can't wait to hear more about what a terror Hope and Bo's little angel has become. 

So what do you think is Nick's plan now that he's back? And don't forget to check back this weekend for our Days of Our Lives round table

Now it's time to pick who had the best line of the week.

I hate what they are doing to Sami. The whole ej / Abbie thing is offensive, start dressing Sami In dull hair and thick glasses and make it look like family dynasty ej would dump the mother of his kids for fluff. Never mind making Abby look like a stupid twit. Yes as a hot fling for a week or two ok, but not after that. Even if ej and Sami break up, he would know by now to stay away
From goodie two shoes Abby. It would be more interesting to have
him with someone his own age with a past - and room for a history to be put in place. Someone also with children, so the younger set get more characters too. The older man / younger woman thing may appeal to the fantasies of the young, but to a certain age group and up it is just plain insulting. And face it Days, after 50 years most of your fans are retired,
Not the stay at home Mom crowd. And we have more money to spend.


you see what i mean now on ellen show alison sweeney on days of our life as samantha is also leaveing the show this year 2014 just as john and bo and all the others days is going down hill. watch them stop makeing days as they did the other soaps another world and others. we have way to many tolk shows. the soaps let us escape from the real world. now it looks like days is comeing to a end. they dont wont to pay the people enough to stay. thats so sad. i really looked forward to watching days every day.


i dont understand why days had to get ride of almost all the older people you see other soaps and they enbrace all the older people that have been on there shows for years. why kill jack why make bo leave the show him and hope make the show. his little girl needs her daddy as so the little boy thats his mom died that was a doctor saffno daughter i cant think of her name right now. and why cant days also bring back hopes oldest son to. theres nothing better then family and hoildays but days stoping careing about all the hoildays with all the cast as a real family. now days went down hill not have the family enjoying the hoidays as they did for over 50 years. i have watch this soap since i was a little girl and im in my late 50s its change no family gatherings and pushing guys on us that are christain we dont wont to see two men kissing that should be done in the private of your home not on tv. shame on you all for not steping up and saying enough is enough. bring back bo and stepno daughter you bring people back from the dead all the time please do it again. john 3 16 in the bible and that god love you all.


Nick is back and NBC just renewed Day's for an other 2 years ;-)


I can't wait to see what's going to happen this week.


OK abigail is a slut! Let sami be happy let nicole be happy with a baby and make stupid Jennifer suffer more. Please stop changing character s end get that stupid over confident of rafes girl suffer please and I'm loving kate and Sammy as friends.


Abby and ej story needs to just be a dream , no way days can do this to the power couple in Salem


I'm so sick of cover ups about killing people, they drag it out too long and in the real world people don't do this stupid stuff, as far as Sami leaving, good riddance! Tired of Jen and Daniel not being together and her being stupid too! If daniel and teresa hook up, i will never watch days again! I love Eric and Nicole, so plz let that happen! Bring back Bo even if its a new person. Teresa needs to hook up with Nick cause they deserve each other . I think Stevano had a person have cosmetic surgery to look like nick kinda like John/roman deal years ago. He can make that happen unlike no other. Who knows what's going to happen!


I knew it was Nick Mondays episode should be good. Abigail is gettin on my nerves alway wanting to tell i don't see her telling on herself


Let me guess. Nick is there for Will's surprise birthday party. Oh wait a minute that was probably edited out to make way for a rejected proposal.
