And yet rather than go take care of her grandmother, Hope will still be at Casa Kiriakis (it's for the good of the child!).
I was just going to say that there's now no excuse for Hope to still be living with Victor. Maybe by then this will be corrected.

That's my question too. When she says complete does she mean she's finished her tribute stint.

I interpreted that statement just to mean that three of her taping days are complete, not that after three days, her return is complete. But just guessing. Sure would be a shame to only have her back for three days.

I think she meant that she has 3 days under her belt. If she were done, she may have mentioned how much fun it was and would've been speaking more in the past tense.

After all... tomorrow is another day!

Before everyone gets their hearts broken... are you positive based off that tweet that it means she was in Alice's house? Or do you think it's possible she meant Mickey and Maggie's house? I read that as Alice's house, but you never know.

Anyway... back to the issue of Jen coming back.

Here's the thing... I was never a big-time fan of MR or Jennifer as a character. I didn't have reason to dislike her but I missed the original Jack/Jen coming together and also never had anything against Jennifer Cameron or Mark Valley in the roles of Jack and Jen (other than Jack having sex with Laura was DISGUSTING). So I am not a Jack and Jen shipper and would've been happy to see Frankie and Jen head off into the sunset had things played out that way... but...

Jen AND JACK need to be back in Salem ASAP!!!

Everyone keeps mentioning Jen's role on the canvas as a friend of Carly and friend/cousin of Hope and needing another Horton in town and ICAM about all that. But Jack would also have a very good reason to be back given that Adrienne has returned in a somewhat semi-permanent way it appears if she has moved in to EJ/Steve and Kayla's old apartment.

Also, Jack and Jen returning would give more family to their nephew Will and niece Stephanie.

And most of all they could be useful if they would let them have a role investigating things in Salem either as reporters or PIs or something. With Phillip having talked about a Titan TV thing... if they really want to develop that... maybe Jen and/or Jack could be involved in that.

IMA - The other gal who played Jennifer was Stephanie Cameron. I didn't have anything particularly against Mark Valley, he was a good actor, just changed the personality of the character a lot. But Steph Cameron, really? She was terrible!

Jack had a lot of interactions over the years that could be really interesting if TPTB remembered them. Before he was the blundering buffoon he came to be known as in later years, Jack was the son of a very rich and powerful politician, Harper Deveraux, who was a business associate of Victor Kiriakis'. Victor was the one who took the Spectator away from Jack back in 1993, and the one who blew the secret (which only he knew at the time) that Jack was the one responsible for the toxins dumped into the Salem reservoir that ended up causing Abby's aplastic anemia. For a time, Jack, Victor, and Kate Roberts were all vying for the newspaper's ownership, but Kate and Jack formed a quasi-friendly alliance until Kate decided to marry Victor, leaving Jack rather betrayed. He also rubbed shoulders with Victor over the whole Toscano mystery (the punch-line of which was that Victor had had an affair with Ernesto Toscano's wife, resulting in Isabella Toscano who later married Roman Brady who later became John Black). Besides Lucas, Jack and Jennifer respectively were friends of Kate's other kids, Billie and Austin. Involvement with Titan could have some interesting shades if the writers looked at the past.

Jack was also the best of friends with Isabella who was Brady's mother. I don't remember who Brady's godparents were though (I think the godmother was Carly ...). If Justin and Adrienne become more permanent fixtures, they did name a son after Jack, and Justin's first son was borne of Jack's stepmother. And if Lucas ever came back, well Jennifer is his sister, he was Jack's best man at their second wedding, and at one point Kate had wanted Jack to be a role model for Lucas back in the days where she aspired for him to go into politics. Jack was tight with Sami for a while in 2002, and IIRC in either 2005 or 2006 the writers gave Jack some lines about knowing EJ from when he was doing work for the Associated Press in Italy. Jenn would also be family for Nathan, and Jack did almost marry Nathan's mother Melissa.

And of course, Jack and Jennifer were the ones who introduced us to the Alamains in the first place.

Memories! Yeah, Jack and Victor go way back (on paper, anyway). I believe Victor was said to known him since Jack was a teenager. He funded Jack's political career as means to keep the higher ups in his back pocket. And Jack knew who to call when he wanted to play dirty, like after finding out about Steve and Kayla. Plus, they teamed up to break Harper out of jail the first time. Oh, drama. Their connection died down after Anjelica skipped town and faked her death, with the exception of Isabella and the missing diary pages (which proved Victor to be her father but Jack kept secret to protect her) ... until, that is, The Spectator takeover, Kate Roberts and In the Midnight Hour, and the "Track 5" business. Then there's the oddly true failed seduction to get Victor's attention that was supposed to be all shades of Bill/Laura/Kate.

Of course, the closest reference to any of that was Jack and Kate's random 2002 hospital chat.

But the Deverauxs, Johnsons and Kiriakisis were all tightly knit back in the day (although, the same could be said about the Bradys, Hortons and Reeds). But I mean, Jack's step-brother was raised as his sister's son. Kinda weird?

With Adrienne in town now, I think she could use a brother. We haven't seen them share a scene since 1991! I want one! Same with the mentioned short-lived friendship/alliance with Sami (shades of Eve) and painfully melodramatic history with former fiance Melissa ... or how about the frequent meddling in Nicole's business, which actually made her a suspect in his 2003 "murder" during the SSK? And the awkward Jack/Kayla dynamic goes without saying. Wish Steve could be around as well!

Jennifer, especially, just has connections all over. There's her best friend Carly and best friend/cousin Hope, her family, her friendship with Bo, etc. I dunno, bring Bill back! That'd be interesting for Jennifer and Kate. And Lawrence? Oh yeah, if there's anyone in the world Jennifer hated and showed no mercy to, it was that guy.

All in all, there's a place for Jack and Jennifer on the show and it wouldn't be hard to keep them busy if they writers wanted to.

At the very least, I hope Jennifer is a constant throughout the Alice storyline.

Jack may not have been a gym-dwelling beefcake but he was totally a ladykiller, of the Armani wearing stripe).

5] BTW, did I hear right that TPTB were at last thinking of recasting Bill for the Alice visit? Is that just nonsense rumor? One of the things that I actually liked about JER was how the Bill/Kate/Laura stuff started, it was always such a shame that nothing ever came of it for Jennifer and Lucas who didn't really interact all that much/interestingly.

1] Well, S/K went off to the cabin for a while. But their OTR story was the previous year. Just recently brushed up on my S/K, so hopefully I'm not off ...

2] I didn't mind it, either. It was strictly power play, each trying to use and get the most out of the other, but it kinda worked. She did think very higly of him and felt guilty when it fell apart for him, but man, she was like a rabid dog upon realizing Jack could get Lucas in through the door of politics. Deborah Adair was so kickass though! She sort of brought back that Anjelica-esque vibe back into Jack's life. I was drawn in.

3] Jack and Victor had maybe a handful of scenes that I could think of in the 2000s: a couple when Jack getting the dirty on Nicole and Colin in attempts to bring him down, during the SSK and maybe one on the island. Right? Nothing really solid.

4] I know! I never considered them to be close, even if she did name her son after him (a nice gesture of reaching out) ... but she hasn't been around for anything major in his life, they only mentioned her once in 2003! Adrienne did however mention Jack during her last return.

5] Corday seemed like they were considering a Bill recast, because he mentioned not being sure how to handle the Bill thing with both actors being deceased. While Mallory will always be Bill to me (no offense, Stone!), I feel a recast could work. I WISH Lucas could be around for it as well, but not sure Bryan wants in anymore?

Yeah, that's right, it wasn't that anybody ever said anything about a recast, just that there was also no word about killing Bill off. And I haven't yet heard anything about Bryan not being open to returning to Days, it sure seems like a lot of fans are still somewhat hopeful.

PS - I'm obviously overdue for another S/K rewatch.

Fwiw, I thought the last few articles that Bryan was interviewed in made it sound like he was not wanting to stay at DOOL and was wanting to move on to other things because he felt like he was not being used the way he could be there (and he was probably right).

But not wanting to come back at the moment of bitter feelings about not having your contract renewed is one thing and never being willing to come back ever when it's been a while since you had a paycheck or maybe the hard feelings have subsided over time is another thing.

Reeves On DAYS Return
Melissa Reeves (Jennifer), who left Salem in September, 2006, reported back to work on April 9 and Digest caught up with her on set. "I was so nervous and I was telling the kids and [husband] Scott [Reeves, Steven, GH] to pray for me, but they were like, 'You're going to be fine,' " she says. "And it really came back to me. Everything felt like I was just here last week and that was a gift. It's so crazy. I feel like maybe I went off to college and now I came back. Everyone is so sweet and welcoming and loving. Walking around here and being older, I think, 'Wow, this place is such a huge part of my life.' I had my kids here and raised them here. It's so hard to believe that this television show is a marker in my life. As you get older, of course you appreciate everything differently. It's just a blast."

The Horton house, OMG. She has to mean Alice's because why would MR have memories of the fake Mickey and Maggie house? I also thought they'd just pretend Alice had been at Maggie's...you know...sharing bunk beds with Mia or something. That house may have just surpassed Jennifer as my favorite return.

Thanks for posting this.

Sounds like she is having a really great time back on set. Hope the show can find a spot for her on the canvas.

The OTR storyline for S&K was actually two years prior to the Harper escape storyline. The Harper escape storyline took place after S&K's wedding and honeymoon. Victor and Jack helped Harper escape (although it was never really explained why Victor wanted to help). Harper was shot during the escape (by Steve who was working undercover to foil the plot after Jo tipped him off about it after she overheard Jack talking about it). Victor's men kidnapped Kayla to treat Harper's gunshot wound with the intend of "disposing" of her afterwards. Jack freaked when he learned Kayla was involved, but was unwilling to stop things to save her (actually really well played by MA). Steve figured out what was going on and where and ultimately rescued Kayla. Steve tried to get Jo to tell the cops that she overheard Jack planning the escape but she refused to turn in her baby boy. Jack basically got off scott free. But, there were some great Steve, Kayla, Jack scenes in the aftermath of the foiled escape attempt.
