    Days Of Our Lives Welcomes Back Eileen Davidson.

    Friday, October 05 2012


    Updated: October 5.

    NBC has released this first glimpse of Kristen's (Eileen Davidson) return to Salem. Take a look.

    Original article: July 5.

    Rumors have been swirling for months that Eileen Davidson would be returning to the role of Kristen Blake but The Hollywood Reporter has finally received official confirmation from NBC.

    The character has not been seen on "Days Of Our Lives" since 1998 but will be back in Salem this fall. This will bring another DiMera back into the fold and could cause some serious upset. No word yet on what, or who, will be bringing her back to town. Since leaving Salem, the actress and author has been appearing as Ashley Abbott on "The Young And The Restless" and "The Bold And The Beautiful."

    Look for her to be back in town on October 11.

    So it is true that Eileen Davidson is returning but is she playing Susan and Kirsten ??? Remember, Chad, EJ and John are Dimeras!

    Wow I can't believe Bo is leaving the show, what will Hope do?I will miss him, he is one of the legends of our all time soap opera, now this Eileen Davidson returning, NOT LIKING IT! Melanie is leaving,I WISH SHE WOULD NOT LEAVE, SHE IS A GREAT ACTRESS, BUT TO FURTHER HER CAREER,all the best to her. I like the powerful William. it suits him, He is like another Ej. would love to see more of his power side, working to protect the Bradies from the Demira's. even though there is not many Demira's left, Will Stephan return this time? did he realy die? is it him who is setting Ej up? Love that Ian is leaving, I like Stephano better. Love to see Abe set up with kayla, they have a chemistry there.Where is Caroline? haven't seen her for some time,I think Lexie shot Stephano,before she died, to get even with him for all that he caused her.Can't wait to see the outcome of all this.

    No she is NOT EJ's mother, Susan is. Originally, Susan was going to give the baby to Kristen, but eventually everything was revealed. Susan is EJ's biological mother (As far as we know lol). Also, Kristen is NOT a DiMera by blood. Her and her brother Peter were adopted by Stefano after he secretly had their parents killed (Their mother wasn't really dead though). So Kristen can have a relationship with Chad, EJ, or even John, and it's fine.

    I really hate it that Aileen Davidson is coming to DOOL. She is a very boring actress and that is what DOOL does not need. I cannot believe that Bo and Mel are leaving. That is really going to hurt. They both add so much to the show. I hope they never bring Stephano back. I am so sick of his story line. That got old a long time ago. What happened to Billie. She hasn't been on for a while. I wish they would give her a bigger story line. I would like to see her with Daniel. Daniel and Nicole or Rafe and Nicole just does not get it. She was great with EJ. I am so sick of Sami. She is not even realistic. No one could be as stupid as she is and get by as well as she does. Please let her grow up.

    Eileen D is returning to Days! Fantastic. Just what the Show needs. The cross-over from Y&R will be immense, just like it was in the 90s.
