'Days of Our Lives' has been airing more than five decades and dedicated followers believe they have seen just about every soap situation possible unfold throughout the years...or have they?

Fans anxiously await Ron Carlivati's arrival to 'Days of Our Lives'

As previously reported, fans are looking forward to the arrival of the new head writer Ron Carlivati and the promise of some very new and exciting storylines that will shake up the residents of Salem in ways never seen before. As current storylines begin to wrap up and some favorite cast members make their final appearances, fans start to wonder where the soap opera will go from here.

Who is accused of killing Deimos, and why?

July spoilers reveal that JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) is arrested for the murder of Deimos. JJ will be implicated for Deimos murder by someone very close to him, his partner and girlfriend Lani Price. According to SheKnows, Marlena will work with Lani and, through hypnosis, hopes to find out what happened the night Deimos was killed and whether or not JJ could be responsible for his death.

Xander will also make a return to Salem. Previous spoiler reports suggest that Xander may be responsible for Deimos' murder, but, 'DOOL' producer Ken Corday teased fans saying the murderer's identity will be a huge shock to viewers and will be someone that nobody would ever suspect.

More July spoilers reveal that Rafe Hernandez has an extra special surprise planned for Hope Brady...is there an engagement ring in Hope's future? Lucas is going to face his mom Kate once again on her choice of husbands. Lucas has never been a fan of his mother's marriages, but can you blame him? Joey Johnson is also ready to make a huge confession about Ava's death.

Will murder and mystery be the main focus of 2017?

She Knows also reports that bachelor/bachelorette party will be taking place later this summer/fall. Who could soon be walking down the aisle? Is a Halloween wedding going to happen this year? Will it be Hope and Rafe, or someone unexpected? Maybe Jennifer and Eric will finally work out their differences and Theo might be ultimately making his choice between Claire and Ciara.
