‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers indicate that everything is going down in Salem this week, and none of it is very pretty. Did you miss ‘Days of Our Lives’ yesterday? Catch up right now with your daily Days of Our Lives recap. Let’s start with the fallout from Xander Cook’s (Paul Telfer) release.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Xander Cook Released, Melissa Angry
Seems Melinda Trask (Laura Kai Chen) is absolutely out for blood now that she’s found out Xander is free as a bird. She goes to the station to call out the “incompetent” and “laughable” (her words) work being done there. She can’t understand how they’d let him go, given they had him on tape. When she finds out that tape disappeared from the servers, she gets even more angry.
Abe Carver (James Reynolds), to his credit, defends the Salem PD in this case and lets her know the blame lies squarely on his office. They go to talk privately, where Melinda freaks out about the fact they gave John Black (Drake Hogestyn) access to begin with, allowing Xander to pull that switch. She refuses to work with this mess of a department and resigns.

Abe is happy to accept that resignation, and she says she’s off to bigger and better things. Later on, she meets with Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) to give her a huge scoop. Jennifer’s shocked and somewhat skeptical, but Melinda insists it’s the truth, and they need to publish the story. They never say what the story is, but we can just guess…
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Melinda Convinces Jennifer To Publish Major Story
Speaking of Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves), she decides earlier in the episode to head over to the room Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) and Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) are staying to look for him. She finds Eve there alone and the two proceed to get into yet another argument-fest, this time over the idea Jack would ever choose to stay with Eve, much less marry her.
Eve seems to take offense at that and says she can prove this thing between them is real. At first, she reaches for the drawer she’d hidden Dr. Rolf’s (William Utay) journal in, but she clearly knows Jennifer must be right, because she instead grabs the contract and shows that she gave up a huge job for him. After Jennifer leaves, Jack returns with some questions…
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Father and Son, Awkward History
Jack was out on the town, doing a little research into the political situation in Salem in anticipation of a potential run for Mayor. While out, he runs into JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and the pair sit down for a drink together. It’s totally awkward at first, but things warm up between them and it’s actually kind of sweet. Well, that is until Jack finds out that JJ once had some private time of his own with Eve, which he revealed while telling Jack the reasons why he shouldn’t trust her.
He enjoys seeing JJ and wants to drop by his place sometime, but he’s also obviously weirded out about having shared a woman with his son. He storms off to the hotel to demands answers from Eve. She admits to what went down between her and JJ, but manages to spin things so he doesn’t just walk right out on her. Instead, he’s ready to focus on his run for office.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Hayley and JJ, New Salem Couple?
That seems to be the question on Hayley Chen’s (Thia Megia) mind as she hears some talk about the bionic eye situation when Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) comes in needing some treatment after accidently being burned at work. Once Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) leaves, they talk a bit and he reveals he was once on the med career track as well.
They seem to get along, so maybe Hayley has another ally here in Salem. Lord knows her sister isn’t much help. After listening to him, she realizes her life isn’t as complicated as it seemed. Girl, stick with these people, and you’ll feel better about yourself every day. Of course, you may just wanna keep in touch via email or something from out of town. We’re not sure, but the insanity in Salem seems to be contagious. Just saying.
Later, she goes back to JJ’s place and they talk a little about him having a drink with his dad, and how sometimes you just get this connection with someone. There are totally undertones to this, so we’re calling it here: they’re getting together.
‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Ted Makes Move On Kate, Gets Tea In His Face
Finally, we have an amusing moment between Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow) and Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini), who claims he wants to win her back. She pretty much laughs in his face and lets him know she doesn’t trust him not to kill her. Having failed at that, he tries to weasel a kiss out of her (to end things right) and she throws her tea at him before taking off. Guess that was a no?
