While his parents tried to shield him from the law for well over a year, Joey’s life was forever changed on Days of Our Lives (DOOL) the night be murdered Ava Vitali.
It was a moment of quiet madness for the teen when he put that pillow over Ava’s face and DAYS fans cringed as the show created a teenage murderer–out of a legacy character no less.
(This was soon after creating a teenage rapist who attacked a legacy character–Chase raping Ciara on Alice Horton’s couch.)
Ciara (Vivian Jovanni) finally left town to get over all that happened to her, and now Joey finally convinced his mother to let him confess and atone for what he has done.
His life has been a mess ever since that night, and perhaps paying for his crime can give Joey (James Lastovic) peace of mind to go on one day.
DAYS fans were treated to some emotional scenes this week as Joey did the right thing, and Kayla had to let her baby go.
It marks the end of James Lastovic’s run on the show, and the actor thanks NBC, DAYS, and his TV parents (Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols) for an amazing two years in the Instagram post below.
