On DAYS OF OUR LIVES, a possessed Marlena is wreaking all sorts of havoc on her friends and family. But starting next week, things are going to get even worse for the folks in Salem because the devil will be resurrecting some of the town’s former residents… and not necessarily well-loved ones, but positively wicked folks like villain Deimos Kiriakis!
Actor Vincent Irizarry — who played Victor’s black-sheep half brother for a little over a year — confirmed his return on Facebook. Punctuating his announcement with a devil-face emoji, Irizarry teased, “Heeeeere’s Deimos!” and informed at least one excited viewer that he’d be airing on DAYS “next week.”
Although Irizarry didn’t divulge any details of his return from the grave, his return lines up with a teaser from the soap that Nicole’s past will come back to haunt her on Nov. 2. As longtime DAYS fans will recall, Nicole killed Deimos back in 2017 when he drugged everyone at a party with the hallucinogen Halo so he could steal a priceless amulet that belonged to Sonny. During a struggle with Nicole, Deimos was accidentally stabbed by his drugged ex and died on the living room floor of Martin House.
In addition to his role on DAYS, soap-hopper Irizarry has played ALL MY CHILDREN villain David Hayward, GUIDING LIGHT twins Lujack Luvanoczeck and Nick Spaulding, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ politician David Chow, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Dr. Jordan Armstrong, and SANTA BARBARA’s Scott Clark.
DAYS typically does a standalone Halloween episode where a character has a crazy dream of some sort. But with the devil running around town in control of Marlena, anything crazy that happens can impact the soap’s storyline for real this year! Stay tuned to see which other familiar faces from the past will be rising from their graves this Halloween in Salem!
