In its current episode, DAYS fans and Belle were staggered as Shawn (Brandon Beemer) made some big decisions.
It is clear, then, that once Shawn shot his father Bo (Peter Reckell) and had him fall into a coma, thinking he was trying to save his mother Hope (Kristian Alfonso), all hell broke loose.
After Victor’s death in a plane crash, things worsened for Shawn. Shawn has seen all of this damage to the one relationship that was seemingly indestructible and finally had its ending blow with Shawn’s infidelity.
Shawn agreed that he had to go for rehabilitation after believing that Belle had discovered a story of how he had slept drunk with Talia (Aketra Sevillian).
There have been plenty of Days of speculation surrounding Shawn’s fate with Bo and Hope nearby and not over at Marlena’s place; instead, he’s looking for help there.
What happened to Belle and Shawn?
Also, Days fans are curious about the fate of Shawn and Belle, childhood friends. He has been coming and going for a number of years, but that does not imply that now Shawn leaves, it will end the marriage. When he became reasonably okay, Shawn pledged to come back to Salem and work on their broken marriage with Belle.
The fact that Belle is going to be leaving along with her mother can have some bearing on what lies ahead of them as a couple.
It is evident that the actress is eager for a fresh phase in her life, which does not include redoing the character of Belle.
Therefore, it amounts to keeping Belle and Shawn off-screen or seeing Shawn back in Salem without Belle. Side note: there is a suspicion that Belle might die. In that case, the whole story for Shawn will go.
Is Shawn leaving Days of Our Lives?
Yes, sadly, Shawn would be leaving Days of Our Lives. To some extent, the surprise arose because the news of exit followed closely after one another.
However, we were aware that Martha Madison would soon leave the role of Belle. Nevertheless, no report was available on why Shawn and Brandon would go to the popular hit soap they shared, even after the announcements that they were leaving hit the headlines.
Thankfully, the manner in which Shawn has been written off provides room for a possible comeback in Salem. It will not be first when it comes to exiting the show, and both characters and actors can return.
Indeed, Days has a reputation for “revolving doors” when it comes to their cast due to the relatively large and many plot lines taking place all at the same time. Exit casts need to be concentrated on other plot lines.
