Veteran actor James Read will be returning to Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) during the week of November 18. Read plays Clyde Weston, Jordan Ridgeway’s (Chrishell Hartley) stepfather and Ben Weston’s (Robert Scott Wilson) father.

The actor also played Hamilton Finn’s (Michael Easton) father George Chase on General Hospital for several episodes in 2018. His first appearance on DOOL as Clyde was in June 2014 – his last appearance was in October 2018.

Clyde has had a tumultuous relationship with both his children. He abused them when they were young, and they ran away from home and hid from him for years. When he found them in Salem, he tried to make amends. Ben accepted his father back in his life, but Jordan still wanted nothing to do with him.

He also was a rival to mob boss Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston), but the men decided to eventually call a truce when they worried about how their hostilities could escalate and affect their children. A few years later, however, Victor teamed up with Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) to try to put an end to Clyde.

Read starred in the 1985 mini-series North & South, Book I and the sequel, Book II as George Hazard. The actor returned to the same role, when Heaven & Hell: North & South, Book III aired in 1994.

He also appeared on many TV series in the 1980s including Remington Steele, Cheers, Trapper John, M.D., Fantasy Island, Hotel and Matt Houston. More recently, Read has had guest-star spots on This Is Us, Castle, CSI: NY and NCIS.

According to DOOL spoilers, Clyde will visit Ben in jail. But what has Ben done this time to land himself in the slammer? And how will he feel when he sees his father? Keep watching DOOL to find out!

11. Someone Passes On

DOOL spoilers tease that an unexpected passing of a character will be revealed early on in the week. Who got the ax? Hard to say at this point, but it will be someone that leaves fans gasping with wonder. While one can’t take a guess on who it could be, perhaps through the teasers viewers can do a process of elimination on who it is not.

9. Chad Makes A Confession

There will be tons of drama around the Chabby return. DOOL spoilers suggest that Chad will admit something to Abby this week.

3. Jack and Jennifer

Days spoilers reveal that Jack will tell Jennifer that the person who caused her fall has landed in jail. Interesting, as it is clear that Gina may not be in prison. In other teasers that could be related, Eve dodges a bullet, thanks to Justin. Could this be a legal dealing? Does this also mean that Justin and Eve are a “thing?”

2. A Year In Review

While fans will struggle to understand what has happened in the past 12 months, some tidbits will be provided in the coming days. Brady will recall what he’s been through this year, and scenes with Kristen will offer up a reason why she left the little town. Then, there’s Lani. DOOL spoilers state that fans will be taken aback to see just how dramatically her life has changed over the past 12 months. It should be interesting.

1. More Spoilers!

Julie will be more than a little ruffled when she realizes that her heart has started to race, and there is no real reason behind it. In other Days teasers, Kayla may have a new love interest, as she will head to her home for an evening of romance. Will fans be privy to a Steve Johnson return this week? Seems that is not the case, and fans might see Kayla with a new beau, as Patch’s comeback is not slated until later this month.
