Days of Our Lives comings and goings reveal that there is going to be more than one big return in upcoming episodes, and fans won’t want to miss seeing some familiar faces in Salem.
According to a report by Soap Hub, viewers can expect to see actor Shawn Christian, who formerly played Dr. Daniel Jonas, back this week.
As many fans will remember, Daniel was the son of Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) and the former love of Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker). Daniel was shockingly killed when Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) got behind the wheel of his car while drunk and caused a fatal accident. Daniel’s heart was later donated to Brady Black (Eric Martsolf).
It seems that Daniel’s reappearance could be in a vision to Nicole as she tries to figure out what to do with the information that baby Mickey may not belong to Eric and Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey), but instead to Brady and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk).

Big Thanks KP for a great interview! You took me back to where this wild journey began. Check out her full interview @soapoperanews ???????? We talk As the World Turns, Days of Our Lives, my travel projects and more…. #lessonslearned #actorslife #interviews #liveyourdreams #soaps #traveldeeper photo: @joshjamesphoto
Daniel was a good and kind man who would likely tell Nicole that she must reveal the truth and allow the chips to fall where they may. This will be despite the fact that the love of her life, Eric, will be devastated to learn that little Mickey is not his biological daughter.
However, since he’ll be appearing on April Fool’s Day, there is a chance that a wacky episode involving wild character returns could play out to give fans a bit of a laugh.
In addition, Leo Stark (Greg Rikkart) will also turn up on Wednesday, April 1. Leo is the former husband of Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith). He was nearly killed by Sonny and Will Horton (Chandler Massey) in the past and made their lives very difficult for months.
Of course, he’ll be sharing his scenes with Sonny and Will. He’ll likely bring some sass and a few zingers to the table during his cameo.
Lastly, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins will return as Sheila Watkins. Sheila is an old friend of Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) and will likely pop up to check in with her pal. Sheila was last seen in Salem nearly a year ago in May of 2019. During her time on the soap, she also had a budding romance with Mayor Abe Carver (James Reynolds).
In addition to the three brief, yet unexpected, returns, Deidre Hall will get to stop pulling double-duty as both Dr. Marlena Evans and Hattie Adams. Hattie will say her official goodbye to Salem and Days of Our Lives fans on Friday, April 3.
