Why Staying Together, Possibly For Forever, Should Happen On Days of our Lives

Why can’t all the dead visit their loved ones to relive their glory DAYS?

days of our lives in heaven with kayla, marlena, and kateWhat is Days of our Lives doing?!

Marlena, Kayla, and Kate are presumed dead by their loved ones on Days of our Lives. We’ve lost track of which time it is for each of them. Their men, John, Steve, and Roman are very, very sad. Kayla’s funeral was even scheduled for the day after her wedding anniversary. Ouch.

Days of our Lives Forever

Steve (Stephen Nichols) was particularly sad about that. But then he fell asleep. And Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) came to him. Kate (Lauren Koslow) was able to contact Roman (Josh Taylor). Marlena (Deidre Hall) finally used the wind to deliver a message to John (Drake Hogestyn) yesterday. So apparently, you can do that. Not just from Heaven, but from Hell, too. Who knew? Which led us to think…why couldn’t they all do that?

DOOL: Death Is Just a Temporary Condition

Sure, no one is ever really most sincerely dead in Salem. But we do have to wonder: Why did Marlena, Kayla, and Kate get to negotiate their return? But, say, Abigail (Marci Miller) and Adrienne (Judi Evans) are still dead?

How about some equity? Let everyone (who wants to) return. But have them do it the same way Kayla did. In dreams, as ghosts, in waking visions. It’s the fair thing to do.

Days of our Lives: Excuses, Excuses

Chad (Billy Flynn) needs permission to mack on Stephanie (Abigail Klein)? Why, look — here’s Abigail to tell him to go ahead! Roman forgets where the potato masher is at The Pub (what? when has he had more story than that?) — here’s Kate with directions! Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) should be able to raise her stillborn baby.

The point is, if the curtain between the living and the netherworld is as opaque as Kayla and the rest made it seem, then everyone should be able to access their loved ones. Why should Steve and his Sweetness be the only ones having all the fun? Who do you want to see hanging out next? Let us know in the comments section below.

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada. For more about what’s coming up in Salem, check out all the latest DAYS spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
