Days of Our Lives Recap Wednesday: Shocking Election Results Come In As Bomb Drops In Haley Case – Claire To Go Postal After Getting Dumped By Tripp
Days of Our Lives spoilers: It’s over
Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) is left reeling when he gets served with divorce papers today. Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) really doesn’t waste time, as Rafe and Lani Price (Sal Stowers) note. She apologizes for what he’s going through, but between this and the Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) situation, he’s starting to think he’s the problem, as he’s now a two-time loser. Seriously? We haven’t been watching long enough to tell for sure, but we’re thinking that they both had their parts in this.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) stops in to see Hope after Haley’s big confession. Jennifer wonders if there is anything that can be done, but Hope is afraid that deportation is a done deal. She notes, however, as we’ve been wondering, why Hayley never actually bothered with the official paperwork to be considered a citizen. Again, it’s not like there were not allowances made over recent years for someone like Hayley. A nurse is surely something that would be considered for forgiveness. There may be a reason for the oversight, but we’ll get to that later.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Facing the music
Several people are dealing with their actions today. While Haley is waiting at the Salem PD to be deported, JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) is in a rage. He confronts his father over Hayley’s confession and for having started all this to begin with. JJ ends up punching Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) and says he hates the man Jack has become. There’s no love left, no matter how Jack and Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) try to spin their actions.
Also getting theirs today is Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan). Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) proves he is smarter than he’s looked lately by confronting Claire about this latest incident. He thinks it’s way too coincidental that Eve and Jack just happened to have two recordings of private moments. He accuses Claire of giving Eve the recoding and they argue.
Claire proves she’s not cut out for this whole villain thing by caving under the pressure and confessing she was, in fact, the guilty one here. Tripp is furious and disgusted, and cares not a bit for Claire’s justifications (even though she technically did have reasons to lose it). Ignoring her pleas to work things out, he leaves to see Hayley at the station. But not before letting Claire know how disgusted he is and that they are completely done. Characters, man. They just never listen. We warned her this was going to blow up in her face…
DOOL spoilers: Last-second salvation?
As we mentioned before, Hayley is being held at the Salem PD pending a hearing that will likely result in her deportation. Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) can’t even with her confession, and wants to know why she’d do something like that. Hayley doesn’t tell the whole story, but enough to make it clear she had no choice. By the way, wecan’t with our not-so-friendly neighborhood ICE agent Laverne Smith (Stacie Greenwell). She was completely unprofessional and gloating today like a comic book super villain. Seriously? Can we be any more obvious about the motivations for this plot? Glad this seems to be over, as it’s so heavy-handed.
All seems lost, as the judge eventually rules she’s gotta go. Hayley is freaked to learn she has only about an hour until ICE comes to put her on a plane. She asks Melinda Trask (Laura Kai Chen), who also wanted to know what was wrong with Hayley earlier, to get her money. Justin is already getting her stuff taken care of. It gets even worse, as Laverne returns to take her earlier than planned.
That’s when a twist comes into play. Melinda has gotten back just in time to see this, and says that Hayley can’t be deported—she’s Melinda’s daughter, not her sister. Wow. Okay, that’s a whole other article…
