Kimberly, Caroline and Jeannie together in 1991...the trio reunites again this November!

Jeannie spends time with her cousins in this 1992 group shot. Eric is holding one of the Jeannie twins while Max holds the other. Sami is up front holding the Stephanie twins. In the back are Jeannie's brother, Andrew, and Shawn Douglas.

No middle name, that's why she was in contention for being Theresa, since we didn't know her middle name.

So its only for a few episodes...or could this be a recurring gig like the one Mary Beth has as Kayla?

Well she lives on the East Coast now, so it's more of a hassle to get to Burbank, but from all the interviews Patsy's ever done, you can tell how much she loves Days and would always want to be a part of the show, so I'm sure she'd be probably be up for a lot of traveling if they'd like to use Kimberly more.

Just to add to what Jason has posted.

Jeannie was born in Los Angeles in September 1990 when Shane and Kim were split up. At the time, she was believed to be Cal Winters' daughter. She was supposedly named after Shane's mother, even though a year earlier, under hypnosis, Shane had said his mother's name was Margaret.

In February 1991, Kim returned to Salem with Andrew and Jeannie. Although she had just pushed for a divorce a few months earlier, Kim hoped to reconcile with Shane, but he was not willing to reunite. He pursued Kayla instead. In November 1991, after Kim and Kayla were kidnapped by Cal, they leaned that Jeannie really was Shane's daughter. But he had very little time with her. In December, he was sent away on assignment and, in January 1992, Kim moved herself and the kids back to Los Angeles.

Six months later, Kim returned to Salem with plans to tell Shane and her family that she was engaged to Phillip Collier, but she was hit by a car. As she was recovering, in August, Phillip brought Andrew and Jeannie to Salem. But soon after, Shane left Salem for good. Meanwhile, Kim was suffering from multiple personality disorder and one of her alternate personalities decided to get rid of the kids. So Andrew and Jeannie were shipped off to stay with Shane.

Jeannie subsequently returned for Christmas 1992 and the 1996 and 1997 appearances with Kim. When Kim returned in 2010 for Alice's funeral, she said the "children" were with her and visiting their cousins, but other than that, when Kim has returned, Jeannie has usually been visiting Shane and unable to get to Salem in time.

Thanks for posting Jason!

Glad to hear Kimberly is coming back. Can't wait until next week to see if there's any indication of Pease's return to the set. Hopefully we will get some tweets, or something. Like others have said, Pease always gushes about DAYS, so I hope she and the show can come to some sort of agreement that will allow her to remain on the show in a recurring capacity. It would really help Theresa become established with Kimberly on the show.

Thanks Jason!

Also, clips like these with Carrie/Austin, Lucas/Sami/3-yr-old Will, and baby-EJ make me cringe and laugh. Not to mention there's Kate with her sons & grandson & one of her future lovers. Days is so screwed up....

Very cool that she and JJ have the same birthday! I wonder if the show will take that into consideration? I also can't wait for confirmation about Patsy's return! Hope it's for more than just a couple episodes!

I seriously am ecstatic that Shane and Kim's daughter is on-screen right now. I already see sparks with her and JJ and some major disapproval from Jen, so this could be a really good story!

Whoa, when put like that, Jen has a point about the age difference, lol!! Like blueskies mentioned, that last clip is crazy, it really shows how messed up these kids timelines are.

Thanks for all the info Jason and the clips, a great walk down memory lane there!

Jason, I appreciate all of the Jeanie Donovan info. But, I have a slight issue with a piece of info you posted about JJ. It says that JJ was born Sept. 3, 2004. That means he would have been concieved around mid-late Nov./early Dec., right?? But, Jack was "killed" by the Salem Stalker in October. What was the actual airdate of Jen giving birth to JJ?

That is the actual airdate of his birth. Soaps always make pregnancies as long as they need to be, for storyline purposes. If Stefano can come back from the dead hundreds of times, Jack can be killed 11 months before Jennifer gives birth, and still be the father!!

Pat's recap from September 3, 2004:

Friday Sep 3
On the island…..Patrick delivers Jen’s baby. A little boy….Jen can’t hear him crying…Patrick says he isn’t breathing….he finally cries as Jen holds him close….she continues to bleed and Patrick tells her that Hope better hurry and get here as Jen says if she continues to bleed she will die.

Dustin's recap from September 3, 2004:
September 3, 2004

On the island, Patrick helps Jen deliver her baby. He says he can see the head and she has to push. She says she cant, shes too tired. He tells her not to give up now! Jen makes Patrick to promise her to put the baby first no matter what, even above her. He says okay. Patrick delivers the baby, which is a boy. However, the baby isnt crying or breathing. Patrick works to save the baby, which he does. Jen is bleeding heavily, and Patrick worries. Jen thanks Patrick and says this is a miracle. Jen also says she is having pain. Patrick says she is bleeding a lot more than she should be. He says he cant stop it, so they have to pray Hope gets here with supplies. Jen says if she doesnt stop bleeding she could die! The baby then begins to cry as Jen says this.
