The incident left Eli in a coma for months and when he awoke, he told Lani of what happened and she set to confront TR.

When she went to faceoff against her father, he was already in the middle of another violent encounter with her mother Paulina and stepfather Abe Carver.

Before the reveal, Eli attempted to persuade Lani to allow Paulina to take the rap for what happened to TR, which she did not agree to due to feelings of guilt.

Eli's last scenes in the series aired on Monday, July 4, and fans bid farewell to both him and Lani.

As the plot continued to unfold, Eli gathered his children and left his friends and family in Salem, Illinois, and headed to Maryland.

As Lani went to jail and Eli followed closely behind, fans of the show took to social media to make their opinions known.

One DAYS fan said on Twitter: "Eli & Lani are yet another popular couple that #DAYS has squandered. Are they not trying to get renewed next year? I’m really trying to understand the direction of this show."

A second viewer tweeted: "Eli did NOT want Lani admitting she shot TR. He's not about to accept a life without Lani."

Another viewer tweeted: "These two will always be beautiful. I love Eli and Lani forever."

"So sad to see Eli and Lani go! Hope they return soon," wrote another user.
