In recent episodes of Days of our Lives, there have been several instances of characters announcing their departure from town, only to have a change of heart. This has left viewers wondering what the show's intention is and why they keep teasing these departures.

One such storyline involves Wendy's brother, Li, who was killed. Gabi is currently in prison awaiting trial for the murder, but she claims she is innocent and Stefan believes her. However, it seems like this storyline may never be resolved. Wendy's father, Mr. Shin, is apparently very sad about Li's death, but we still don't know his first name.

As a result, Wendy's mother pressured her to move back to China. Tripp, Wendy's love interest, insisted on going with her and even told his mother, Ava, that they were moving to Hong Kong. It was a bold move for the show to equate Hong Kong with China given the ongoing international debate. However, after saying their goodbyes, Wendy and Tripp had a change of heart and decided to stay. It's unclear if this was supposed to be a significant storyline for the couple.

Another character, Theresa, has also announced her intention to leave town due to her distress over her son Tate being arrested. She got high and expressed her desire to leave, but Alex, her love interest, convinced her to stay.

After they had sex, Theresa agreed to remain in Salem. It's questionable whether this was meant to be a compelling storyline for the couple.

These constant fake-outs in the show, where characters announce their departure but ultimately stay, appear to be an attempt to create tension. However, it seems unnecessary as there are already potential storylines that fans would be more interested in. For example, Wendy and Tripp could have a storyline involving Li's murder or Ava's new career as a drug dealer. Similarly, Theresa and Alex could explore how she has negatively impacted his life and reveal any secrets that need to come out.

These are the types of stories that would captivate fans, rather than the characters' travel plans that never come to fruition.

Days of our Lives can be seen on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada. For those interested in upcoming events in Salem, they can find all the latest spoilers. Additionally, there are Facebook groups dedicated to soap fans, such as Days of our Lives Fans, General Hospital Exclusive, The Young and the Restless Fans, and The Bold and the Beautiful Fans, where fans can engage with others who share their passion for these shows.
