There have been a lot of big arrivals and departures this past year on Days of Our Lives. Now, details are out about a big return that should definitely shake things up in Salem. Nadia Bjorlin is returning in the role of Chloe, and it sounds as if the writers have big plans for this character’s return.
According to Yahoo! TV, Chloe is on her way back to Salem and this time, it is an extended return. Nadia Bjorlin has returned to DOOL for some very brief stints here and there, but this time, she will apparently be a series regular again.
Bjorlin first appeared on Days of Our Lives as Chloe in 1999, and rumors about a long-term return have been swirling around for a while now. Nadia is the latest in a long line of DOOL returns, as Alison Sweeney, Peter Reckell, and Jason Cook all returned to Salem for brief visits, while Stephen Nichols, Mary Beth Evans, Martha Madison, and soon Brandon Beemer have stepped back into their DOOL roles for longer runs. Matthew Ashford will also be popping back up as Jack Deveraux next spring, but his return is for only a handful of episodes.
Viewers will certainly be curious to see what brings Chloe back to town and where things are headed with the character. Bjorlin played Chloe from 1999 through 2007, returned as Chloe from 2007 to 2011, and has appeared briefly a couple of times since then. Chloe hit Salem after having lived in an orphanage for 15 years, and she weathered some rocky times as she adjusted to town. She went on to romance Philip Kiriakis, who has recently returned to Salem and is now being played by John-Paul Lavoiser.
The relationship with Philip did not last, and Chloe went on to marry Brady Black, Lucas Roberts, and Daniel Jonas, and had connected with Daniel after cheating on fiancé Lucas Roberts with him. Chloe ended up cheating on Daniel with Philip, and naturally, this led to a pregnancy. There was some baby daddy drama, but ultimately it was determined that baby Parker was Daniel’s son.
Over the years, Chloe battled leukemia and a horrific car accident, and she tried to kill herself after Daniel left her over the baby drama. There was a blackmail plot to split up Daniel and Jennifer, but eventually, Chloe settled in Chicago and in her most recent stint, came to accept Daniel and Nicole’s engagement.
Days of Our Lives spoilers tease that Bjorlin just started taping her first scenes, which would mean that she will first appear on-screen sometime in the late spring. Just what brings her back and how does this tie in with actor Shawn Christian’s departure as Dr. Daniel Jonas?
As Celeb Dirty Laundry notes, this is a prime time to bring Chloe back into the mix of things in Salem. Philip is back in town but is currently unattached, Brady is happy for the moment with Theresa, and with Daniel’s death, Parker will need someone to care for him. It seems Chloe will be seen briefly on DOOL at some point in January, but on a regular basis come mid-May or so.
Just what will cause Daniel’s death? Is that what brings Chloe back to Salem for a more permanent return? Which man will be the next to get involved with her romantically? Fans will need to stay tuned for more Days of Our Lives spoilers as Chloe’s return draws near.
