Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers are mostly about Salem paying tribute to Caroline Brady (Peggy McCay). There’s slight advancement, also, of the growing tension between Ciara and Claire Brady (Victoria Konefal and Olivia Rose Keegan). If you missed the action, let today’s Days of Our Lives recap catch you up on some highlights.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Celebration interrupted
Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) is thrilled that Will Horton (Chandler Massey) has pulled through his crisis. To celebrate this, and their wedding, Sonny comes back to Will’s room with a big cake to mark their vows, but Will’s not in a celebrating kind of mood, having just learned from Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) that his great-grandmother is dead.
Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) gets a bad surprise today when Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) arrives to tell him about the Irish wake being held at Brady’s pub. She is clearly uncomfortable when she realizes that he doesn’t know, and is forced to break the news. She assures Victor that he is more than welcome at the gathering, but Victor chooses to stay behind and mourn his own way.
What he ends up doing is retrieving a box full of mementos of Caroline. One of those mementos is a letter she wrote, informing him of their child together.
Later on, Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) stops by to offer her support, as she is sure Caroline would want—not to mention, Bo Brady (Peter Reckell). She asks to see what’s in the box, and Victor allows her to see it all. While they talk and go over the few things he’s kept, he admits that he knew he was never going to win her affections when Shawn Brady (Frank Parker) was around. He calls her the love of his life.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: No love lost
Before the celebration of Caroline’s life, Ciara and Claire are getting ready in the loft. Claire asks about the dress she’s wearing, and if it’s too cheery looking for the event. Ciara makes a comment about the world not revolving around Claire, and we are sure this little scheme isn’t going to succeed. Despite explaining things away, eventually even Claire is going to notice the hostility that Ciara is carrying. This surfaces a couple times after they leave as well. Ciara has 100% bought into the truth about Claire, and it seems to be poisoning Ciara.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Remembering Caroline Brady (Peggy McCay) – The Legacy of an All-Time Great
Two characters return today for Caroline’s farewell: Carrie Brady (Christie Clark) and Shawn-Douglas Brady (Brandon Beemer). Alongside John Black (Drake Hogestyn), Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall), Kayla, Sami, Roman Brady (Josh Taylor), Ciara, and Claire, they all share stories about Caroline. Ciara, in particular talks about the rosary Caroline gave her, and how it’s like a hug from Caroline every time she uses it.
Roman and Kayla remember their mom’s feisty nature and how hard she worked to raise them to be hardworking, good people. Kayla even jokes with Sami during her speech about not being the first troublemaker in the family. It’s Sami’s that might be the most touching, and an appropriate goodbye to both the actress and character. Sami relates what happened to Will in the hospital and credits Caroline for his living. She calls it Caroline’s last gift to the family. Excuse us while we go find a tissue… What? It’s allergy season…
The episode ends with an old scene between Caroline and Shawn that fades into two figures representing them standing outside Brady’s Pub as they watch the gathering.
