"Days of Our Lives" spoilers overlap with "The Young and the Restless" spoilers for a shocking news item. "DOOL"'s new head scribe Ron Carlivati has lured Eileen Davidson ("Y&R"'s Ashley Abbott) back to "Days", possibly to reprise her role as Kristen DiMera. Ron is known for raising dead characters and is doing at again for "DOOL". This "DOOL" casting news comes fresh on the heels of Carlivati yanking "Days"' Will Horton (Chandler Massey) from the grave after he was brutally slain in October 2015 by the necktie killer.

Is Eileen Davidson back to "DOOL" as Kristen?

Soap Opera Digest announced the casting stunner today via its website saying, "Fan favorite Eileen Davidson is heading back to Salem." SOD added that the show has not said who she's playing. "DOOL" might not have specified whom "The Young and the Restless" star is playing, but if you're familiar with Ron Carlivati's track record a soap writer, it's probable that she will be playing Kristen despite that the DiMera diva is pushing up daisies.

Back in 2013, when Eileen left "Days of Our Lives", she told TV Guide that she knew for a while that her run as the vile villainess of Salem was coming to an end since she decides to walk away when it was time for contract renewal.

That left her free to head back to "The Young and the Restless" as Ashley Abbott. At the time, the actress insisted she would not go back to "Y&R", but that's precisely where she landed.

Carlivati Loves to Raise the Dead

When Ron Carlivati was the chief writer at "General Hospital", he brought Jake Spencer (Hudson West) back from the dead even though the kid had died at the tender age of four after being run down by his grandpa Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) in a tragic DUI hit and run.

Not only was Jake run over, but he was on life support as the family gathered around to watch him die.

His parents Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst), nominal dad Lucky Spencer (Jonathan Jackson) and bio dad Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) decided to donate his kidney to save the life of Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy). It was a tragic and touching death from years past, and then Carlivati undid all that drama by inexplicably resurrecting the kid before he was fired from "GH" leaving the new writers at the ABC soap to clean up the mess.

If Eileen Is Back as Kristen, How Will She Resurrect?

With this hot "Days of Our Lives" spoiler, we have to wonder how Carlivati will raise Kristen from the dead if Eileen is to play her former role (which fans no doubt are hoping). It also begs the question of what will happen to Ashley on upcoming "The Young and the Restless" spoilers. Ashley and the Abbotts are neck-deep in a family storyline with their absentee mother, Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams), back to genoa city, so if she goes missing, it would be noticeable.

When Kristen DiMera died, she fell out a castle window while brawling with Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall).

To be fair, this wouldn't be the first fake death for Kristen if Carlivati does bring Eileen back as the bad girl of Salem. Last time Kristen "died" she even had the gall to turn up for her own funeral, so anything is possible. This time, Kristen presumably died in Italy, but the cops didn't find a body, and we all know in soap land what that means!

Welcome Back to Salem, Eileen!

Kristen's adoptive father Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) won't be around to welcome her since the soap world lost the talented actor late last year, but there's still plenty of DiMeras around to cheer (or boo) her return.

So, when will Eileen Davidson be back to "DOOL"? Since the show shoots almost six months ahead, "Days of Our Lives" spoilers promise it'll be fall. As of June 5, Eileen Davidson was on the Salem set, so that means a likely return in late November or early December 2017.

"The Young and the Restless" spoilers show no indication that Ashley Abbott is leaving Genoa City, but she might be on the back burner temporarily if this a one-shot cameo type of thing. What do you think soap fans? Are you thrilled Ron Carlivati lured Eileen Davidson back to "DOOL"? Which role do you prefer for Eileen – Ashley Abbott or Kristen DiMera?

Stay tuned for more info as news unfolds for these "Days of Our Lives" spoilers and "The Young and the Restless" spoilers.
