The character last appeared on "DOOL" back on August 25. This time around Derrick will be sharing scenes with Paul again, and could cause trouble for him and Sonny once more.

Blast from the past

As many "Days of Our Lives" fans will remember, Derrick was one of the main players in the Will and Paul cheating storyline. Will was hired to write an in depth article about Paul, the former major league pitcher, when he first came to Salem. Of course, Will had no idea that Paul was once in love with his husband, Sonny.

Will and Sonny's past together was played out in a series of flashbacks for fans to see, and we all realized just how serious their relationship was. Sonny wanted to marry Paul, but had his heart broken when Paul just couldn't live his life in the public eye as a gay man. Now, everything has changed. Will is dead and gone, killed by the Salem necktie killer, Ben Weston, and Paul is no longer in the major leagues. In fact, Paul is out and proud, and he has Sonny to think for much of that. Sonny, who is still recovering from Will's tragic and shocking death, is back in Salem after some time abroad, and has rekindled his friendship with Paul. However, fans of the soap opera believe that they'll also rekindle their romance. That is, unless Derrick has plans to get between the pair.
