The Monday, May 20 Days of Our Lives (DOOL) recap bring more confusion for Will Horton (Chandler Massey), more problems for Victor and Maggie Kiriakis (John Aniston and Suzanne Rogers), and a new winner in “Most Entertaining Character”. If you missed the action, let’s get to your Days of Our Lives recap highlights.
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) Recap Monday: Xander & Nicole Overtake Jack & Eve As Salem’s Most Unholy Alliance
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Confusion
Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and John Black (Drake Hogestyn) are at the pub when Will and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) show up. They’re updating John and Marlena on the latest developments when Will goes into another episode. He rips Marlena for having given him that drug and putting him through this. Just as quickly, he forgets it happened and is horrified to learn what he’d done. Chandler is really killing these scenes, by the way. There better be awards coming his way…
Disturbed by the incident, Will agrees to go back to the hospital with Sonny. They tell Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) what’s going on while Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) is informing Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow). He and Sarah ultimately decide that they’re going to try another round of radiation to hopefully get these symptoms under control.
Elsewhere, John tells Marlena he is going to find that diary of Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay). And we’re still scratching our heads at the idea everyone seems shocked an untested drug devised by a mad scientist caused this. Didn’t they all acknowledge Will was taking a huge risk before he took the drug?
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Trouble at Casa Kiriakis
Kate is still at the Kiriakis mansion when we first see her today, and still chatting about the Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) situation. Maggie just happens to walk in and thinks she and Victor look a little too cozy. She confronts Kate, saying any business needs to be handled at the office. She doesn’t want Kate in her home. Victor doesn’t look too worried about making that happen, which upsets Maggie.
After Kate leaves, Maggie goes on to stress about the situation and implies that Kate is using this Titan situation to get closer to Victor. Uh huh. We think she is seriously reaching right now. She only gets more upset later, when she sees the figure Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) broke in the trash. She actually calls Kate to accuse her of doing the deed, but Kate isn’t playing this game. First off, she thinks Maggie is making zero sense. Secondly, she’s got more important things to worry about. Namely, Will. The call ends with Maggie about to take a drink, but Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) comes in and catches her.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Winning Team
Victor didn’t bring much in the way of awesome today, but hey—a man can’t be on all the time. And it’s all good, because there are two people ready to step in to provide comic relief in the middle of all the drama: Xander and Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker). If you recall from Friday, Xander had arrived with some booze and called Nicole his partner. Things really take an insane turn today. Nicole and Xander have apparently been planning everything that’s gone down, and Xander wants his props for the amazing job he’s done. Nicole plays along and tells him he’s “God’s gift to the Universe.” Their banter is seriously awesome, and is making us like this sudden unlikely pair.
Even better is when Nicole “blah, blah, blahs” the whole sad thing she’s having to put on, as she doesn’t really care about “the brat”, who isn’t even dead anyway. The actress is so on with the villain thing, it’s unreal, and her commentary on Xander’s fitness to run a company is totally on point. She insists he has to have a little patience. And we’re still trying to wrap our heads around this one, especially given the way they’re talking about the Xander/Nicole marriage. Whatever it is, please giv
