The time is upon us Days of our Lives fans!  This week, Alison Sweeney departs Salem in her role as Sami after over two decades of playing one of the most central roles in the history of the iconic soap opera.

NBC gave Alison, and her fans, a special send-off with this touching video package complete with retrospective clips.   In it, Alison shares that she has been a fan of Days of our Lives all of her life, and to find out she would be coming to the show to play the daughter of Deidre Hall (Marlena) was something she will never forget! And that she secretly hoped that she would play the villain on the show, which is something she definitely got to experience!

Alison also shares some of her favorite scenes including when Sami bitch-slapped Nicole (Arianne Zucker) after finding out about her duplicity with baby Sydney, and the more recent standalone episode where Sami finds out that EJ (James Scott) slept with Abigail, even though that turned out to be a nightmare of EJ’s!  And Alison talks about all of her leading men on DAYS, and how she was very lucky that each and every guy was wonderful to work with.  Later, in an emotional moment she talks about leaving the series and is finally saluted by some of her co-stars and some of her fans, as they wish Alison well as she moves forward with her life and her career!

Watch Alison Sweeney’s very personal farewell to DAYS video after the jump! Then share with us your favorite scenes of Alison’s time on the show, and who was your favorite all-time love interest for Sami?

    It will seem strange without her but i wish AS well and i know she’ll make some future visits…very curious to see how the show performs without two of its powerhouse stars…i remember when Doug and Julie left and it took a little time to get used to but back then the show had other interesting characters and storylines…not so much this time mainly because of the boring Jordan storyline…with the exit of Ejami, the Jordan storyline shouldve been more front and center and holding viewers interest during major cast departures but its not and it may hurt the show a little ratingswise…the writers better have something to keep the viewers tuning in and so far it doesnt look promising but ill wait and see…i hope whatever is coming in the weeks ahead with the return of Melanie and the arrival of Melissa Archers character will keep us watching…jmho!!!

    Now that Chrishell Stause will be leaving DAYS, the boring and tedious storyline revolving Jordan and her many secrets will be quickly wrapped up. I watch DAYS mostly (if not only) for Eileen Davidson. I just love Kristen Dimera! I’ve never been a big fan of Ali Sweeny or EJami. I know they have many fans; but, we all have our favorites. I do think that the actress has done a great job leaving while paying respect to the character and all of the actors she has had major storylines with.

    I’m going to miss this lady a lot. I wanted Sami to end up with Rafe in the end, so I’m sad that didn’t happen, but gosh…What great fun it’s been to watch Alison Sweeney work. All the best to her in whatever she decides to do next.
