And possibly Patrick Muldoon as the REAL Austin!!! Christie, Patrick and Alison Sweeney had lunch today at the Days set and Alison even tweeted a picture of the three of them!! I sincerely hope we are getting some Austin and Carrie lovin'....Patrick Muldoon is SO MUCH BETTER than Austin Peck!! If you've only seen Austin Peck as Austin Reed, you're in for a treat with Patrick Muldoon. Yipee!!!!!!
Is it possible this is the way sami gets her kids back can carrie be bringing her mon back to town
Stefano has Anna "neutralized" somewhere. P.S. Carrie's "real" mom has always been Marlena. Carrie and Anna have never been close.
I suspect this is an opertlunity to get that peck guy who got better when he left..why not bring billy back to bring bo and hope together against hope and help get rid of carly
Patrick Muldoon has not aged well. If Austin comes back with Carrie, Austin Peck should be the guy. When Peck was on Days, he was nothing but a pretty face and a smoking hot body, but now he's actually learned to act and is even hotter than when he was in his twenties.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS it about time she would be great i always love watching her on screen
Why in the world would Bille and Hope team up to get rid of Carly? Billie's the one that Bo was actually going to divorce and choose over Hope.
I was wondering when she was coming back, hopefully this means Austin, (either PM or AP, I am not picky) comes back as well, I will be really happy.
I've watched Days since the 80s so after Andrea Barber left to join "Full House", I've always loved Christie Clark as Carrie, and she's the definitive adult Carrie (I don't acknowledge the Tracey Middendorf years where they tried to write Carrie as a conniving bitch). But at the same time, I kind of feel Carrie and Jenn as adults are both similar characters. They are both blonds from established Salem families, are in the good girl category and frankly Melissa Reeves is too young to move into grandmother territory so they both play in the same age range. I love having Jenn back, although I want Jack back too. I just don't get why the producers keep bringing half of established, fan-favorite couples back like this.
Personally I love Carrie with Mike, never cared for Austin because he was just plain dumb as a rock. But with the recent story in SOD stating that Alison Sweeney is going through contract negotiations, could this be a way to transition the show over to Carrie should A) Alison Sweeney quits Days or B) Have Carrie around to help carry (no pun intended) the show should Alison Sweeney want a lighter work schedule? And when she came back for Alice Horton's funeral, it seemed like they mended fences so are they going to be bitter rivals again? If so, it feels OLD! Characters need to develop, I don't want the show to be 1 step forward, 2 steps back! Yes, it's great to be rooted in history, but rehashing stories is lame. Both Sami and Carried have grown since then.
Again, I love Carrie as a character, but honestly the show needs to firm up the Horton clan. I love the Bradys, but there are far too few Hortons in Salem. I want Mike back, a recast of Jeremy or Nick to re-establish the next generation of Hortons. Sarah needs to come back to help take care of Maggie and bring unknown children. Doesn't Julie have any children/grandchildren? She's on the canvas, better incorporate her! And Bill needs to come back. He said he was going to take care of Maggie at Alice's funeral and I actually enjoyed him as Bill. Imagine Bill and Victor fighting for Maggie's affections? Kate and Vivian would both be furious! Yes, they are an older age group, but characters the fans love! I read an article in TV Guide discussing the Horton Christmas this year and the photo they had barely had any Hortons, this family needs to be re-established as they are THE CORE family in Salem!
so happy about this was thinking about her yesterday!!!! if austin doesnt return she'd be hot with EJ.
HELL NO, Tylerbo!!!! Carrie belongs with AUSTIN and only AUSTIN!!!! I'd rather have Carrie off-screen with Austin than on-screen with someone else. Carrie and Austin are a supercouple and belong together.
Patrick Muldoon HAS aged well and he's the first and best choice to bring back as Austin. I don't care how good Austin Peck got on ATWT---he'll never be the original, REAL Austin. Why go for a recast when the original actor is available? Recasts should only be used under extreme circumstances.
"Why go for a recast when the original actor is available? Recasts should only be used under extreme circumstances."
I think Erica Hope is free --- Y&R should get rid of Melody Thomas Scott since she's not the REAL Nikki.
Deborah Adair should return to DOOL as the REAL Kate.
How about Viki on OLTL -- the REAL actress might be free (Gillian Spencer).
Bob, I couldn't agree more. So in that vein...
Why not bring back....
Brenda Dickson as Jill Abbott on Y&R?
Nancy Pinkerton as Dorian Lord on OLTL?
and bring back the original marlena evans deidre hall as alison sweeny is a poor substitute in the role
Carrie & Mike were one of my all time fave Days couples! Love me some Roark Critchlow and his fab pecs!
OMG is Carrie really coming back??? For good??? And the original Austin also???? Hopefully Carrie can stick around longer and get a decent story this time! I will watch Days again if this is the case.
It seems like there are alot of new characters coming after the first of the year. Three that they have mentioned. Is there a plan to flesh out the show or are they getting rid of some of the characters? While I am happy to see returning characters, Carrie doesn't exactly inspire storyline on her own. If Austin is not returning, I wonder what it is that she will be doing. Hopefully not embroiled in the who's the daddy plot......Maybe she would be a good ear for Sami during her crisis but even still, that could be done with a new character. Maybe they are trying to hedge their bets like has been mentioned in case they lose Sami. But they better get a move on with a story for Carrie. Personally I would like for the show to move back into the Horton territory. I think there are alot of story potentials there.
"Carrie doesn't exactly inspire storyline on her own."
Excuse me? There are plenty of Carrie-driven storylines that Days could write. For one thing, they should follow up on Carrie's fertility issues. Can Austin get her pregnant? Has he gotten her pregnancy? Will they adopt? Will they get a foster child? Here's a story I'd like to see...
Carrie and Austin have decided to adopt a child. But Carrie has a secret: she's pregnant with her and Austin's very own biological child! As Carrie prepares to tell her husband, Austin learns the adoption has fallen through. He's going to tell Carrie when she tells him she's pregnant. Fearing the news will hurt her delicate pregnancy, Austin doesn't tell her the truth and decides to purchase a child on the black market for her. Austin turns to Victor for help, and Victor agrees to help him if Austin signs over control of Austin Reed and Co. to him.
That is a Carrie and Austin story. Again, Carrie by herself doesn't inspire story. The only ones she has had is Carrie v Sami over Austin and Mike v Austin over Carrie. With both Mike and Ausin out of the picture, exactly what are you going to build on with just Carrie? Carrie unlike her sister, does not come with story included. Sami is a story unto herself. One can ALWAYS make a story surrounding her. She takes after Marlena in that aspect. I could see her perhaps starting a romance with EJ. Dumbass as she is, she could probably ignore the fact that he is criminally insane and evil long enough to fall for him. Or maybe she could start up something with Phillip. Or maybe her infertility problem will be a little blue pill for that dreadful Dr Daniel. He loves em when they are sick. Whatever the deal is, I hope they use her to better effect than they did Kayla. I am not even sure why they brought Kayla back. She had no story and no effect on a story. It seemed like a waste of time, effort, and budget. I am hoping for better with Jen but it seems to be slow going. Carrie I have my doubts about.....
Why in the hell would Carrie have a story by herself? She and Austin are married---together they drive a story. Obviously you don't remember the 90s when Carrie was front and centre for 7 years. I'm not sure why you'd want to see a solo Carrie story---she and Austin are a supercouple, the only supercouple of the 90s on Days, and TOGETHER, not apart, they drive story.
Also, your logic is flawed. Why do you think Austin is out of the picture? If anything, the picture of Patrick Muldoon on set with Christie and Ali pretty much proves Austin is definitely very much part of the picture.
Who the eff wants to see Carrie alone anyway? They did that in June. I want to see Carrie AND AUSTIN!!! It's like this horrible Jennifer debacle. Why the eff bring her back without Jack? Jack is Jennifer's only viable love interest, plus it's a huge slap in the face to Jack and Jennifer fans by having them split up AGAIN when Matthew Ashford is completely available to come back as Jack. Doesn't Days realize we want our supercouples TOGETHER????
I think this is fantastic news. I grew up with Christie Clark (we're around the same age). So this excites me to no end. Of course I'd like to know if this is a contract role or just a temp visit because I know Christie doesn't even live in L.A. any longer... and if Patrick is there, he must be returning as well.
UGH! SOD says NO Patrick Muldoon return and Chrtistie Clark is only returning for an appearance. Thanks for getting my hopes up, soap world.
Patrick Muldoon isn't Austin anymore. Bring on Austin Peck to rerise the role and have him square-off with EJ.
Fuck Days---they are sooooo damn stupid!!! WHY bring Carrie back without Austin? We want to see Carrie with her husband, her lover, her SOULMATE Austin!!!! No wonder I don't watch this piece of shit show anymore...they certainly love to fuck with their long-time fans!
akbad806, Austin Peck isn't Austin anymore. Patrick will always be the REAL Austin, the one who got us interested in Carrie and Austin as a supercouple in the first place.
Alastair Crane, she's only back for an appearance. calm down.
Don't you DARE tell me how to feel, Brando! I'm entitled to my feelings so sit down, shut UP and don't tell me how to live my life. kthanxbye!
The abuse you heep on me and fellow commentors is disturbing. Do you need professional help? Your anger and rage are unneccessary, ain't nobody handin out Emmys here you can calm your nerve.
Abuse, dear? I haven't abused anyone---Brando attacked me, and then YOU attacked me on the Y&R discussion board. Your meltdown was probably one of the funniest things I've read on DC to date.
Sorry but this Brando character doesn't just get to come along and tell me how to feel. If he doesn't like my posts, he can skip 'em. But I will not be told to "calm down" by somebody who doesn't even know me. He doesn't get that right.
Now stop following me from thread to thread, you little stalker.
