Days of Our Lives is hoping to make an explosive comeback when it returns to daytime after the Olympics. And what better way to do it than by blowing a few things up!

Beginning Aug. 13, the NBC sudser will follow in a long line of daytime disasters (remember the building collapse on The Young and the Restless, the virus that took over General Hospital, and the tornado that hit All My Children?) by launching a “Daysaster” in Salem. During a big fundraising gala, a series of explosion begin wreaking havoc on the city. Folks are trapped in collapsed buildings, some climb their way out of sunken holes, while others learn to make due by canoodling to their heart’s content. (Sami, you untamed sex kitten!)

All the major characters will be involved in Operation: Kablooey, including John and Marlena, Chad, Gabi and Melanie, Jack, Jennifer and Abigail, and a pregnant Nicole.

Here’s an exclusive first look of the promo that will kick off explosion month on the NBC soap.
