Days of Our Lives Comings And Goings: Ali Sweeney Explains Latest Salem Visit And Exit
Days of Our Lives comings and goings reveal the end of Alison Sweeney’s latest Salem stint as Sami Brady.
Alison Sweeney Is Gone Again
Sweeney’s last airdate was July 15 when Sami declared her independence from both EJ DiMera (Daniel Feuerriegel) and Lucas Horton (Bryan R. Dattilo), two men who have both wronged her in horrific ways one too many times. Will Sami stick to her vow to move on and one day return to Salem with someone new on her arm or was that all false bravado? Either way, Sweeney had a blast while she was there.
Although this return was a blink-and-you-might-miss-it type of comeback, it was surely memorable for fans as Sami learned that Lucas was the one who had her kidnapped and held hostage in a remote cabin for months. It was also memorable for Sweeney, who always has a blast when she returns to the Salem scene.
Days of Our Lives Is Like Home
For the last eight years, Sweeney has been coming and going from Days of Our Lives, as Sami can never seem to stay in one place for too long and now she is gone again after a whirlwind visit that Sweeney enjoyed.
“It was very exciting and dramatic when I was filming the scenes for sure,” Sweeney said in the July 26, 2022, issue of Soap Opera Digest. “I did not think that there would be another Sami wedding in my future. I go around telling people confidently that can name them and now and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that adds one more to the list.'”
Sweeney has been playing Sami off and on for the past 30 years so Sami has had an awful lot of chances to get married and has taken every one of them — usually with the groom being either EJ or Lucas, so at least Sami remains consistent.
And that is likely not the last we have seen as Sami. “I’m always open to it,” Sweeney said regarding another comeback. “Sami really put the kibosh on a return, but never say never about what could happen next. I always love visiting Salem.”
When Sami departed, she left destruction in her path after outing Belle Black Brady’s (Martha Madison) affair with EJ, shocking Belle’s recent ex, Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer). Stay tuned to Days of Our Lives weekdays to see the fallout from Sami’s departure.
