Two Weirdo Casting Additions

No, seriously. Click behind the cut if you have that little regard for your sanity…


I don’t know how I missed this until now, but Marie Wilson — who played the minor role of Bree Tjaden, Hope’s old friend and also the Jennings’ old neighbor who warned Hope that Aiden probably killed his late wife — was announced this past October as returning to Salem in a different, contract role. She first airs this coming Friday, and she’s playing someone named Summer. Based on the below photo, it appears that this Summer is connected to the visions/memories that Brady is having of Daniel’s time in Malibu.

I… what?!

And if that weren’t enough WTF-ery for one day, Jason47 confirms that Daniel Cosgrove is returning as Aiden Jennings later this year.


I suppose it’s entirely possible that this is a ghostly appearance to “haunt” Chase, or some new flashbacks that will reveal Aiden actually killed Meredith after all, but at this point, I wouldn’t be shocked to have him walk in the door and announce he’s alive after all.

    I heard the rumors about Daniel Cosgrove awhile back, and I thought it was just wishful thinking of Haiden fans. This is weird! Any word on the length of his return?

    • mykleraus Says:

      I haven’t seen anything on what kind of return this is. It could be one of those extended ghostly appearances, like they’ve done with Isabella a few times, which I guess is fine. I’ll be pissed if they bring him back alive after all the shenanigans that went into killing him in the first place!

    The Aiden return has to be a flashback or ghost appearance…I mean Ken Corday said anyone who died after September would be truly dead, right? Lol.

    Hope was a lunatic before she murdered Stefano but she has seemed perfectly sane since. Maybe she suddenly goes insane again and this time she has ghost Aiden coaching her instead of ghost Bo?

    I don’t know anything about Marie Wilson but if she can act I have no issue with her taking another role. She certainly isn’t the first to have done it.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I don’t have any particular issue with Marie Wilson, but do we need more damn contract characters? They’re barely writing for half the people who ARE around. Ironically, I was defending her when people were bitching about her being brought on as Bree (“instead of Sarah Horton or Carrie or Belle”!) because it was clear to me that was a story-specific role. This reeks a little more of Jordan to me, but we’ll see.

      It’s strange how KILLING A MAN seems to have restored Hope’s sanity, isn’t it?

    it seems perfectly refreshing, how hope got her sanity back.

    now that you mention it……

    I’m pretty sure Tamara Braun as Taylor Walker/Ava Vitale was a swifter re-assignment for the same actor so, about a year or so in between Marie Wilson’s separate characters isn’t going to be too confusing. Aside from that Bree was just very minor guest character just used for the purpose of trying to warn Hope about Aiden. I remember seeing a casting call for Summer about 6 months ago, “white woman in her 40s to portray a passionate loner who has been in and out of institutions.” Hmm??? To be honest, I’m just over all things that are Daniel and now he lives on with a pre-quel “Days of Daniel’s Life: Maliboo Musk Edition.”
    My guess is Aiden returns in dreams to haunt Hope and/or Chase; there were quite a few loose ends with Aiden’s backstory.
    Unrelated…did you see the photo of Vincent Izzary and Judi Evans on the TBD set with a guy who looks exactly like Freddie Smith/Sonny in the back ground?

    • mykleraus Says:

      “Maliboo Musk,” LOL. I just cannot imagine what this story is going to lead to. Another woman who LOST HER MIND over Daniel? Fun! Weirdly, they’ve flipped the dynamic of the last several years and have too many women in the 35-45 range (Jennifer, Nicole, Belle, soon Summer and Chloe) and not many available men (Eric’s gone, Brady’s with Theresa, Daniel’s dead, Lucas is in Backburner City, Philip and Shawn are obsessed with Belle), so I’m curious to see how this shakes out pairing-wise. Terrified, but curious.

      I saw VI’s photo, yeah! Then he tried to backtrack and say it’s a “stagehand” who looks like Smith. Jason47 is hinting pretty strongly that FS is back filming.

    • Shea Says:

      I think Judi Evans moved from Bonnie back to Adrienne in world record speed. I swear Bonnie Lockhart left town one day and the next day Kayla called Adrienne and asked her to come back to town to help Steve so JE threw on a wig and resumed the role of Adrienne the next day.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Oooh, yeah. That was definitely the fastest. JE never even left the show — she just put on that wig and changed roles.

        TB was on as Ava in 2008, Taylor in 2011, and Ava again in 2015-16, so she’s actually been pretty spaced out (considering).

      • ADW Says:

        You are correct! I don’t remember exactly when Bonnie Lockhart left but, when I picked up again and saw Judi Evans sans the twang, I was so confused.
