Okay, so soon is a bit of a relative term. Since Sweeney doesn't begin taping her reprisal until May, we won't see fair Samantha Gene on the air until fall. However, DAYS fans desperately need a reason to be excited and this is definitely one.
I can't wait to see Sami go around the town square hoe-checking people for all the unchecked antics they've been up to since she took her surviving children and split town. Here's a list for her to work from!
1.) John Black
Sami's acrimonious relationship with her stepfather may have mellowed over the years, but when she finds out John (Drake Hogestyn) left Mama Marlena (Deidre Hall) alone for darn near half a year to go work some mysterious case, Sami should remind him just how nasty she can be when she or one of her loved ones are mistreated!
2.) Abigail Deveraux DiMera
Sami should be none to pleased by the stunts Abigail (Marci Miller) has been pulling in recent years. How dare that other Mrs. DiMera have the audacity to fake her death, and then become a Weeping Wanda just because Chad (Billy Flynn) caught feelings for Gabi (Camila Banus)? Alright, technically none of this is Sami's business but when did that ever stop her from meddling? Besides, the Widow DiMera must still loathe Abigail for screwing the late EJ (James Scott) behind her back!
3.) Jennifer Horton Deveraux
Maybe Sami can offer up a discount on mother/daughter readings for filth? Eric's (Greg Vaughan) twin sister can't love the idea of prudish, judgmental Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) going to bed with someone Sami shares DNA with!
4.) Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis
Just who does Adrienne (Judi Evans) think she is? Only Sami Brady is allowed to keep Lucas Roberts (Bryan Datillo) twisting in the wind while she decides between him and another player in a love triangle!
5.) Sonny Kiriakis
A rational person would realize Sonny (Freddie Smith) had a right to move on with his life after Will (Guy Wilson) was murdered. Since when has Sami ever been rational? I hope she slays Sonny for daring to love again after her son's untimely demise, especially considering who he's moving on with...
6.) Paul Narita
It's bad enough this guy is the bastard son of John Black, but Paul (Christopher Sean) was instrumental in blowing up WilSon — and that wasn't all he was blowing! Sami will definitely find it infuriating that Sonny wants to play hide the gyro with this guy of all people.
7.) Chloe Lane
If anyone deserved to deliver karmic revenge to recovering baby-switcher Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker), it's Sami, not Ghoul Girl (Nadia Bjorlin)! Sami needs to tell that ex-Prima Donna to find a new opera to sing.
8. and 9.) Hope Brady and Rafe Hernandez
Rafe (Galen Gering) has some nerve to hook up with Sami's own aunt! So Sami wasn't exactly the most faithful of cop's wives when she was married to Rafe (Would you be if EJ came sniffing around?); that doesn't give him just cause to shack up with her dead Uncle Bo's (Peter Reckell) lady love. That's just nasty! I am living this life for the snarky barbs Sami will aim at those two.
10.) Carrie Brady Reed
No, Carrie (Christie Clarke) doesn't currently reside in Salem, but I hope Sami's big sister pays a visit. Nothing says 90's nostalgia like the Brady sisters bickering while Marlena and Eric try to play referee!
BONUS: Kate Roberts
I immensely enjoyed Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Sami go from mortal enemies to corporate frenemies before Sweeney left the show. That being said, I wouldn't mind something transpiring to reignite their age-old feud.
Who do you want to see Sami tangle with now that's coming home to Salem? Sound off in the comments!
