The strongest soap writers can help transition the end of a storyline into a brand new one, and this is where plot twists can change the game for any daytime drama. While there are times that Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has been known to stretch reality when it comes to their stories, there’s no denying they have had some pretty incredible plot twists over the years. Below is an overview of some unexpected plot twists in DOOL’s recent history.

When Steve Johnson was written out of storylines in late August 2018, most DOOL fans weren’t too pleased. Then, when new broke via social media that actor Stephen Nichols was set to return to the daytime drama in late 2019, audiences were over the moon, as we would finally all be seeing the Steve and Kayla reunion we were all hoping for. That is until Days viewers realized that Nichols had really returned to play Stefano DiMera, parading around as “Patch.” #MindBlown
