Days of Our Lives fans have seen a lot of crazy things happen in Salem over the past two years. So many beloved characters have come and gone, and some have even died — or have they?
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, one big character may be making his way back to Salem from beyond the grave. Will Horton could possibly be returning to the soap even though he was killed off last year.
Days of Our Lives viewers were shocked when the soap decided to kill off Will, who is basically one of the most important characters on the show. Will, who is both a Brady and a Horton, had been an active character on the soap since his birth.
Even though the character had been recast a few times, fans finally found a Will they loved in actor Chandler Massey. However, when Massey decided to leave the show, the character was recast yet again with actor Guy Wilson. Many Days of Our Lives fans didn’t take to Guy as Chandler’s replacement. However, they were still in disbelief when Will was shockingly murdered by the necktie killer, Ben Weston.
Now, with the return of Will’s husband Sonny Kiriakis to Salem, viewers are hoping that Will Horton will somehow make a return to the soap and that Chandler Massey could be back in the role.
Days of Our Lives fans have been buzzing about Massey’s possible return for months now, and although there was some rumored drama behind the scenes before Chandler left the show, DOOL could be courting the actor in hopes of getting him to return.
However, bringing Will back would pose a few obstacles for writers. Will was brutally murdered, and there would have to be a good explanation for his return. Bringing Will back from the dead would also mean that his mother, Sami Brady, would likely have to return, at least for a few episodes.
Will’s death was hard on Sami, who was still grieving the death of her husband, EJ DiMera, at the time. Sami would obviously want to come home to Salem if it was revealed that Will was still alive, but would actress Alison Sweeney want to return? Sweeney returned to help celebrate Days of Our Lives’ 50th anniversary last year but was only seen a few episodes.
Meanwhile, Will’s husband, Sonny, may be starting to rekindle his romance with ex-boyfriend Paul, who was beyond thrilled to see that Sonny had moved back home to Salem. However, it seems obvious that he has a possible romance in mind. It’s no secret that Paul believes that Sonny is the one that got away, and if the two do reconnect romantically, that could be the time when the show shocks viewers by bringing Will home.
Meanwhile, Days of Our Lives fans have a lot to look forward to this fall. The new autumn preview promises big drama with Chloe’s pregnancy, Kayla’s medical emergency, Brady and Theresa getting Tate back, Victor being arrested, and former villains escaping prison to return to Salem and exact revenge on their enemies.
It looks like Theresa’s life may be in danger when Xander returns to get his revenge. Xander will attempt to kill Theresa on her wedding day, and since actress Jen Lilley has confirmed that she’s leaving the soap, fans are worried that the character might actually die.
The possibilities seem endless when it comes to Days of Our Lives, and loyal viewers will be on the edge of their seats to find out what will happen to all of their favorite Salem residents when the show returns from hiatus on August 22.
