In a year of surprise returns at Days Of Our Lives, could the stage be set for the long-awaited homecoming of EJ Dimera? Rumors on social media picked up steam shortly after Chandler Massey returned as Will when Kristen Dimera (Eileen Davidson) appeared briefly at Susan’s house and confirmed what viewers knew all along–EJ is back among the living, thanks to a healthy dose of Dr. Rolf’s serum.
With Alison Sweeney back on the canvas as Sami, and the Dimera family in conflict over control of Dimera Enterprises, the timing couldn’t be better to bring EJ back into the fold. It would also seem that the casting of Stacy Haiduk as Susan Banks, EJ’s mother, could also hint at his imminent return.

DAYS could certainly use the character of EJ—last played in 2014 by James Scott—in an effort to rebuild the Dimera family. With Thaao Penghlis (Andre/Tony) currently out, and Billy Flynn (Chad) set to exit soon, Salem’s nefarious Dimera clan could certainly benefit from EJ’s return.
Imagine the fireworks if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) were confronted by the brother he never knew? So far, Stefan has succeeded in gaining control of the mansion and the family business, but what if EJ arrived to challenge his reign? Their battle for prominence would make for a fiery chess match!
And let’s not forget that Sami has never given up the belief that EJ is still alive. Her search just may be the key to bringing him back to Salem. After all, Sami Brady—and DAYS fans—usually get what they want!
As always, more detailed spoilers and a full collection of pictures for the week in question will appear here on Soap Opera Spy, when there could be more clues and hints over exactly what’s going on.
Days of Our Lives airs weekdays on the NBC network.
