Popular Days alum Christie Clark is in LA and taping.
Christie Clark recently revealed on Instagram that she was in LA and taping, though didn’t indicate what she was taping. The actress posted, “I’m walking in sunshine! 10hr flight with no kids. Spa, nails, script work. Happy as a pig in Pooh” Could she be reprising her role of Carrie Brady Reed on Days of our Lives? Clark returned to Days in January of 2017, as Soaps.com previously reported, and Austin Peck also reprised the role of her husband Austin Reed. Carrie returned to Salem when her mother Anna found herself accused of murdering Andre DiMera. She and Austin also stayed to attend the wedding of Carrie’s Aunt Kayla to Steve Johnson. If Clark is returning it likely will be a brief appearance and begin around May. This past summer Clark and her family relocated to London. Her Instagram post indicates they are still there while she’s taping in LA.
Carrie could be back for a host of reasons, as several of her family members are in legal trouble. Steve Johnson is currently being held by the ISA on espionage charges, though he was framed by Stefan DiMera, who used the bionic eye he gave him to spy on important documents. Carrie’s return could be to help out Steve. Will and Sonny are being blackmailed by Leo Stark, who is insisting Sonny married him or else he’ll send him to prison for attempted murder. Will helped Sonny dispose of Leo’s not-so-dead body, and would also likely face criminal charges for covering up a crime. Will could definitely use his Aunt Carrie’s help. Carrie’s aunt Hope Brady has also been playing fast and loose with the law as Salem PD’s Commissioner in order to protect her daughter Ciara from reformed serial killer Ben Weston, and now she’s gotten into bed with crooked lawyer Ted Laurent to do so. Many fans feel Hope has spun out of control and should be punished for her abuse of the law. Carrie would likely rush to defend her aunt if Hope found herself in hot water due to her actions. And a custody battle over Nicole’s daughter Holly appears to be looming between Carrie’s brother Eric, Chloe and Maggie, so she could play a part in that story. Lastly, they may address Peggy McCay’s passing and have Carrie return possibly for a storyline involving Caroline passing on. Purely speculation but a possibility.
