“Days of our Lives” debuted the new Chad DiMera on Friday, September 12 with Billy Flynn in the shoes of EJ’s (James Scott) little brother, and the character hit the canvas with an almost literal bang!

In a series of intense moments that played out beginning this past week, a clearly upset Chad confronted EJ about sleeping with Abigail (Kate Mansi), whom he called his own before leaving Salem last year to recover from a bullet wound meant for his elder brother. The showdown included a punch as well as Chad pulling out a gun, both of which gave viewers a fast introduction to Flynn’s take on Chad, whom the writers have revamped to be more vengeful, more badass and basically more DiMera!
