Days of Our Lives fans, prepare to witness one of the series’ wildest resurrections yet.
HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on Sunday focused on the myriad difficulties faced by refugees seeking asylum in less-hostile countries, culminating in a special gift to 16-year-old Syrian refugee Noujain Mustaffa. She learned English by watching Days, and like many fans, she hasn’t forgiven the NBC soap for killing off EJ DiMera (played by James Scott).
Not only did Oliver revive EJ — in spectacular, soapy fashion — but he also reunited the no-longer-dead Brit with his true love, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney). The duo even gives Mustaffa a special shoutout, once EJ is done explaining the insane details of his resurrection, of course.
In case you don’t have time to watch the full report (below), Mustaffa’s story is told from 3:45 to 4:36, and the Days action begins at 13:00.
