Jack's spirit returns to help a hurting family member

According to the latest "Days of our Lives" spoilers, actor Matthew Ashford is set to reprise his role as Jack Deveraux.

Jack, who tragically died years ago saving his daughter Abigail, will be returning to Salem, but he won't be back from the dead. The latest "DOOL" news reports that Jack's spirit will return to comfort one hurting member of his family. In the past, Jack returned to help his wife Jennifer get through her prescription pill addiction, and now he'll do much of the same for his son, JJ.

JJ needs his dad more than ever after a shocking accident

"Days Of Our Lives" spoilers reveal that JJ will be involved in a shocking accident where his police work will take him into a dangerous situation. JJ will be forced to fire his gun, but he'll accidentally shoot an innocent victim, Theo Carver! JJ's bullet will hit Theo and change his life forever.

Poor Theo will find himself paralyzed from the bullet, and JJ, who is also rumored to get shot during the altercation, will be in a very dark place after he believes he's ruined the young man's life. JJ would never want to hurt Theo, who is beloved by fans for his sweet and innocent personality. During the dark days, JJ's guilt will consume him and that is when he'll begin to see the spirit of his father, Jack.

Fans looking forward to Jack's return

"Days of our Lives" viewers have never seen JJ (Casey Moss) and Jack interact. Moss came to Salem as JJ after Jack's death, and many "DOOL" fans are now excited to see the father and son reunite on the screen. In addition to Jack's spirit, JJ's family members, Jennifer and Abigail will likely rally around him after the tragic accident.

Each of them knows what it is like to be in a very bad place, and the two women will want to help drag JJ out of the darkness and back into the light. Thankfully, it looks like Theo will survive this ordeal, but JJ's guilt could cause him to do something that could make matters so much worse. Hopefully, Jack's spirit will be able to help his hurting son.
