It was months ago that we learned that Valerie’s son would be headed to Salem on Days of Our Lives, but it looks like the time is coming soon.
This picks up on a story that began over three decades ago when Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) son, David, had an interracial romance with Valerie.
Now, it looks like the two had a son and it will be interesting to see how Julie handles finding out that she’s a grandmother. Soap Hub asked how do you feel about Eli coming to town, and your answer was pretty clear.
Welcome Prodigal Son
After almost 6,000 votes were tallied, 69% are thrilled with this upcoming story. You’ve enjoyed getting to know Valerie (Vanessa Williams) again, and you’re sure her son will add another layer to this building story between her and Abe (James Reynolds).
Plus, you can’t wait to see how Theo (Kyler Pettis) reacts to this bit of news.
Finish Other Stories
It seems 29% aren’t looking forward to it because they want current stories to be wrapped up first. They’re worried that Hope (Kristian Alfonso) is still out there and wanted by the police.
While soaps often have many stories going at once, with some in the beginning, others in the middle, and still more needing a conclusion, you feel there are just too many on DAYS’ plate right now for you to welcome yet another one.
On the Fence
Still, 2% aren’t sure how they feel about the upcoming story. You love Julie and may be worried she will have a bad reaction to learning Eli (Lamon Archey) is her grandson.
Maybe you’re just protective of Theo and worry this could upset him just as he was coming around to accepting Valerie.
