On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers finally got to see the highly anticipated return to daytime by One Life to Live favorite John-Paul Lavoisier (Ex-Rex).
The actor has stepped into the role of Phillip Kirakis on the NBC daytime drama, and on his first airdate, Phillp return to Salem to help his father Victor (John Aniston) with Titan Industries, now that Brady (Eric Martsolf) has stepped down to spend more time with his son Tate, and Theresa (Jen Lilley).
In scenes re-introducing the character of Phillip, it is clear that this is a take-no-prisoners version, who’s intent is on heading up Titan, proving his worth to his father, and to keep Brady from being part of it.
In his first episode, Lavoisier shared scenes with John Aniston, Eric Martsolf, Peggy McCay (Caroline) and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie). And it is, Maggie who is clearly suspicious of Phillip’s motive for being back in Salem, and his desire to cash in on the drug that has helped save Caroline, but that is causing her to have some serious premonitions – one of which is that something terrible is about to happen to Victor!
Is Phillip poised to take over the family business? Is he all about power? Who will be the lady love in his life now that he is Salem? Share your thoughts on this, and what were you first impressions of JP on Days of our Lives in the comment section below!
