‘Days Of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Departures, Fan Favorite Returns Set To Begin As Killer Rampage Starts

Chaos is set to hit Salem, and Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that there are some wild times ahead. Those with the show have teased that there is a big serial killer storyline kicking into gear that will play out until the show’s 50th anniversary this fall, and things are about to get crazy. What is known about this storyline so far?

Viewers have been bracing themselves for this serial killer storyline to begin, with buzz swirling about who the victims would be. The show has teased that there will be at least three Salem folks killed, and now it would seem that one victim’s identity likely has been confirmed.

Soap Opera Digest teases that Melissa Archer’s run as Serena is about to come to an end. Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that Serena will depart Salem sometime in the coming week. Archer says that her experience with DOOL was amazing, but she essentially expected and ultimately understood the decision to let her go.

While there will be lives lost in the coming weeks due to the serial killer, there are many fan favorites returning to Salem as well. It’s been teased for quite some time now that Alison Sweeney, Peter Reckell, Stephen Nichols, and many others would be back, and this finally kicks into gear in the coming week.

Days of Our Lives spoilers from She Knows Soaps share that Steve “Patch” Johnson finally shows up in Salem on the August 28 episode. Things are said to get wild between Chad and Serena on Wednesday’s show, and Eric faces a stunner on Thursday.

Teasers indicate that Chad will black out and have no memory of what happened the night prior, and this would seem to tie to his interactions with Serena and Archer’s exit from the show. Is Eric’s shocker perhaps finding a dead Serena? That’s one theory floating around, and viewers will find out soon.

Which upcoming departures will be at the hand of the Salem serial killer? Who will be behind the carnage set to take control of the town? Fans are anxious to get started with this one, and it seemingly begins in the episodes airing during the week of August 24.

The deaths may be beginning soon, but Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that it will take a while for answers to be revealed. The serial killer’s identity will apparently be disclosed when the show airs its 50th-anniversary episodes during the week of November 8, and fans are definitely intrigued.
