Days of our Lives’ Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) has been off-screen for a few months, and viewers miss her chemistry with Xander (Paul Telfer).

Every time Xander appears on-screen, there’s a flurry of viewer questions involving Sarah, like what happened to her. After all, Sarah and Xander were the hilarious comedic couple that gave fans a break from Salem’s drama.

Let’s look at what happened to Sarah and if she’s coming back to Days any time soon.

What happened to Sarah on Days of our Lives?

Just when Xander and Sarah were finally blissfully happy in true soap opera fashion, the couple was broken up.

Sarah accidentally discovered that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was impersonating Susan (Stacy Haiduk). Kristen couldn’t have Sarah spoil her plan to keep Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) away from her man, Brady (Eric Martsolf).

After knocking Sarah out and kidnapping her, Kristen donned a Sarah mask to dump Xander. While wearing the Sarah mask, Kristen made it appear to Xander that Sarah had reunited with her former flame Rex (Kyle Lowder).

Xander was heartbroken, believing Sarah left town with Rex. Little does he know, Kristen shipped Sarah off to DiMera Island.

Sarah remains there today. She is the first of many people Kristen hurt before her secret was discovered. Now Kristen’s on the run, and Xander has no idea the love of his life didn’t break his heart.

Is Sarah coming back to Days?

Linsey confirmed her exit from the NBC soap opera in March in a heartfelt tweet praising the character and thanking fans.

Although the actress didn’t even hint at a possible return, Days is notorious for having cast members exit for a short time for storyline purposes. Sarah briefly exited the daytime drama in fall 2019 because of baby Mickey’s illness.

Stacy (Kristen) is another example of a cast member leaving and coming back a lot. She has left for weeks at a time, only to return with a bang.

The Days of our Lives summer preview video revealed that Eric (Greg Vaughan) pops up in Salem after nearly a year-long absence. At the time of his exit, Greg lets fans know he “never says never” when it comes to reprising the role of Eric.

Because of the way Sarah left town, the door remains open for the character and actress to return. It’s a safe bet the writers will bring her back as soon as Xander finds love again.

Xander and Gwen (Emily O’Brien) have been fighting a lot lately, which, in soap opera land, usually means they will become a couple. A Gwen and Sarah showdown over Xander would be pretty entertaining for viewers, that’s for sure.

Do you want Sarah to come back?

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on NBC.

  1. I’d love to see Sarah come back to fight for her man Xander from Gwen. Xander & Sarah belong together their hillarious together, us fans need a laugh right about now of what we been thru for the past year.

  2. I definitely want Sarah on screen and Xarah back together!! Sarah and Xander were amazing together. Gwen couldn’t compete if she tried lol.

  3. I was not a fan of Sarah…………only because her acting was not so real…………..she talked really stupid and silly most of the time……….not like a real person would talk………????

  4. i really don’t care one way or the other, i thought her and Xander were childish and the acting was not that great, she is a doctor and they made her look stupid,,, why not just ship Xander off to the same island

  5. Yes, please bring her back!! I just hate how stupid the writers write things, for example Sarah was supposed to run away and meet Rex, why hasn’t he contacted anyone in Salem when she hasnt shown up? That’s just stupid!

    • I agree with you Danielle, plus…….Why didn’t Rex show up when his mother ( Kate ) was missing, ended up in the hospital, blind and no memory. Hmmmmm

  6. I know Sarah is coming back and she’s not going to like it that Gwen has her claws in her man Xander, this should be good. :)

  7. I didn’t like Sarah’s acting to begin with. But like you said she is a doctor and they gave her scripts that made her look stupid. But Xander did become a better person with her so for that reason yes I would like her to come back. Maybe they would will give her better scripts.
