As Soap Hub told you last week, while we know of three definite comebacks happening on Days of Our Lives (DOOL), there was another one that was shrouded in mystery… until now!
In addition to the returns of Jen Lilley (Theresa), Robert Scott Wilson (Ben), and Jaime Lyn Bauer (Laura) this month, you can now keep a look out for Xander! That’s right — sources say has returned to DAYS and should be appearing onscreen shortly.
So, what could the killer Kiriakis relative be up to this time? The usual target of his ire, Nicole, is long gone and there is no word of her portrayer, Ariane Zucker, returning to the show. He could go after Nicole’s last love (that he knows about), Brady (Eric Martsolf).
Brady is quite the sitting duck in that hospital bed, so we’re not sure where the sport is in that. But there is another woman who has a connection to both Brady and Xander — and she’s returning this week — Theresa!
Seems like perfect timing for Xander to be down in Mexico, either helping Mateo keep Theresa in line or just playing a cat and mouse game with her on his own for his own amusement. Of course, there is one other reason he could be there and it could be rather shocking.
We know that Victor (John Aniston) has been in touch with Xander in the past. Could it be that he dispatches Xander to Mexico to retrieve Theresa in order to get Brady’s mind off her sister Eve (Kassie DePaiva)?
It seems like Victor hates Eve even more than he does Theresa. And he is not happy with Brady’s growing infatuation with her. Perhaps Vic feels he needs to bring in the stronger guns to defeat Deimos’s widow.
No matter what the reason, you can be sure Xander will bring some kind of trouble — after all, life is never dull when he’s around.
