‘Days Of Our Lives’: Now Is The Best Time For Jen Lilley To Return As Theresa Donovan [Opinion]

Days Of Our Lives fans are seeing the return of many characters, including some that died on the show. Even though viewers are excited, there is no word on if Jen Lilley will come back. With Arianne Zucker leaving the soap opera, now is the perfect time for Theresa Donovan to find her way back to Salem.

As fans know, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) are currently together. However, something is going to happen with the relationship because Zucker wrote on her blog that she has stopped filming new episodes. That means Nicole will say goodbye to Salem, leaving Brady all alone once again. If Lilley reprised her role of Theresa, not only would Brady have her by his side, but Tate would have his mother back.

For those that need a refresher, on Days Of Our Lives, Brady and Theresa were about to get married. Then, Theresa’s ex-boyfriend, who was involved with the cartel, made her an ultimatum. She either abandons her family and returns to Mexico with him or somebody would get hurt. She was really conflicted about the entire situation, but ended up leaving Brady. She didn’t want to just disappear, though. So, she made Brady and everyone else believe that she was back to using drugs. She was hoping that Brady would want nothing to do with her, making her exit easier. However, that didn’t happen. Brady refused to give up on her.

Movie magic.

Eric Martsolf recently said in an interview that Brady has always been unlucky in love. With his relationship with Nicole failing, since they have to break up somehow for her to leave Salem, who will fill the void in his heart?

According to the Facebook page for Jason’s 47 Days Website, there is one more person returning that has not yet been announced. Fans would be overjoyed if it was Jen Lilley. Even though she was always a bad girl, she really turned her life around after having her son, Tate. Sure, there was that whole “chasing Melanie out of Salem” thing, but Brady and Theresa were in love, even if Martsolf’s character didn’t realize it at the time.

With new head writer Ron Carlivati on board, now is the ideal time for Jen Lilley to return to Days Of Our Lives. Brady needs Theresa Donovan, and so do fans.
