Days of Our Lives viewers couldn’t be happier that Shawn and Belle are back in Salem. However, with the arrival of Belle Black-Brady came shocking news about her marriage to Shawn Brady. Belle confessed to her parents, John and Marlena, that she and Shawn have decided to get a divorce, and it’s all her fault!
That’s right, super couple Shawn and Belle are on the rocks, and Days of Our Lives fans only recently learned why. Belle admitted to her mom and dad that while they lived in Maine, Shawn was always busy, and that she met another man and began having an affair, and with Philip Kiriakis on his way back to Salem, there are sure to be some sparks between Belle and her ex-husband.
“The question begs who did Belle share this affair with? Could it be former love Philip Kiriakis? With John-Paul Lavoisier set to premiere as a brand-new Philip next week, he could either be her comfort or we can learn he already was her comfort recently in more ways than one.”
Days of Our Lives fans can expect to see the last of Jason Cook, who is currently playing Shawn Brady this week, after his father Bo’s funeral. Cook only signed on for 2 months and will be gone again very soon. However, Shawn and Belle will both be sticking around Salem, as Brandon Beemer will take over the role of Shawn from Jason Cook, just like he did 10 years earlier, in 2006. Together, Beemer and Martha Madison will resurrect Shawn and Belle for fans who have sorely been missing the couple over the past decade.
Jack Deveraux was last seen in Salem in 2012, and died after falling down an elevator shaft while saving his daughter Abigail, played by Kate Mansi. Will Jennifer get a video message from Jack, or perhaps see him as a ghost apparition, much like Hope is currently doing with her late husband, Bo Brady? Another option would be for Jack to return in some sort of flashback scene that impacts the current storyline on Days of Our Lives. Since he’s only back for 5 episodes, it seems fair to believe that he’s not actually still alive. If he were alive, why wouldn’t he stick around Salem to be with his family, wife Jennifer, and kids JJ and Abigail, both of whom are struggling with not having their father in their lives?
Days of Our Lives fans won’t want to miss a moment of the action. The soap has been bringing its A-game while celebrating its 50th year on air, and viewers have absolutely been loving every minute of seeing old faces return home to Salem, as well as saying goodbye to some beloved characters such as Bo Brady, played by Peter Reckell, who returned to give closure to the character and storyline.
