The Jack attack Days of our Lives fans have been waiting for is just around the corner, and a new Twitter picture posted by portrayer Matthew Ashford has some fans thinking he'll perhaps be sticking around in Salem much longer than expected.
News that Ashford would be returning as J.J. and Abigail's dad back in November, when it was confirmed that the actor was back on set and would be appearing in five episodes to air this spring. However, considering the actor just posted a picture of himself on the DAYS set this week, it would seem he's taping more than the handful of episodes he taped at the end of last year.
“Steve and Matt together again?” Ashford captioned his Twitter photo, which shows him standing outside Stephen Nichols' (Steven “Patch” Johnson) dressing room.
As Soap Central noted back in November, Jack was pronounced dead in an elevator crash back in August of 2012, so his upcoming Salem appearance could be in spiritual form or, as it is a soap opera, the character could make a miraculous return from the dead.
Stay tuned as this story develops!
