‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers find Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) furious, Hope Brady (Kristian Alfosno) plotting with Eli Grant (Lamon Archey), and problems for the unholy duo. If you missed your fix, let’s catch you up on your highlights in today’s Days of Our Lives recap.
‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers: Feeling the Pressure
Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) is just about to destroy Claire Brady’s (Olivia Rose Keegan) incriminating phone when Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) walks in on her. Proving he’s not that bad of a guy, he demands to know what’s going on, then gives Eve some hell about how things turned out. Furthermore, he insists on her dropping the charges against Ben. When she objects, he warns that Claire made a full confession to get into Bay view. There is no hope of actually convicting him, as someone’s already legally responsible for the fires.
Days Of Our Lives: Shameless Eve throws everyone under the bus to save herself after Claire’s crimes are exposed
Showing he’s not the best guy, he’s not going to make her resign or take any action. He lets her continue her coverup, then accompanies her to a press conference where Eve blames this whole mess on the former commish. She’s learned the ways of politics well. She even paints herself as some great hero.
Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers: Live streaming fury
The good news for Ciara and Ben are the dropping of the charges. Ben is actually hilarious in his reaction to the text from Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth), as is Ciara. Their celebration doesn’t last long. They learn that Eve is going to be giving that conference and decide to stream it. While they’re not expecting an apology, they are outraged by what they do see.
Ciara actually looks like us whenever Eve or certain other characters are on screen. She calls Eve a “bitch” and yells at her for not doing anything. As Eve blames Hope, Eli, and others for the situation, Ben remarks that, “It’s getting crowded under that bus.” And we bow to Ben’s genius commentary.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Confession time
Eve wasn’t the only one who made a confession. Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini) is going on about the necklace plot when Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow) starts ranting about “stupid Hope” and the “stupid necklace.” Their talk eventually leads Kate to question why she’s so sure that Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) isn’t going to come back here and off them. He’s soon forced to admit that he knew about the fake death of Holly, and Kate can’t. She ends up blaming him for this situation. If he hadn’t wanted to impress Hope, none of this would have happened.

Not-Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) is still fuming after learning that her orders were not followed. Alone in her hotel room, she pulls a weapon on him and demands a good reason for letting him live. Her reactions to his non-reasons are awesome, and we’re really going to miss Arianne when she’s no longer playing Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk).
Later, she orders Xander to do the job she’d assigned before and even points out that doing this now would be kinder than letting them starve to death down there. Besides that, she doesn’t want anyone coming across them in the tunnels. She was lucky that Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash) sent her down there instead of someone else. Xander’s still not planning to follow through. He feels she can do her own dirty work, thanks.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: You’re fired
Things go from bad to worse for Not-Nicole, but we’ll get to that in a sec. First, the big launch of Gabi Chic and Basic Black was supposed to happen at Doug’s Place. When Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) gets there, she finds out that no arrangements were made for any party. Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) doesn’t want Gabi’s business anyway, as Gabi slept with Stefan during Holly’s funeral. She informs Gabi she knows exactly what Gabi is doing. Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) told her. She doesn’t care now, though. She might even be willing to help.
Stefan picks that moment to arrive, and they lie about what they’re talking about. Gabi complains that Not-Nicole never made arrangements for the party. Stefan is fuming, but apparently, Chloe is feeling generous. She’ll let them have the place last-minute—for triple the price. Having no alternative, he accepts the deal and he and Gabi scramble to figure out a menu and everything this late.
Eventually, Not-Nicole arrives and asks what she can do to help with the party. Stefan and Gabi both tell her she can get lost, and Stefan fires her.

In other news, Eli tells Hope about the missing evidence. As they talk, they realize this might not be the only crime she’s covering up. To check this, Eli manages to get the anonymous 911 call. Upon hearing Kate’s voice, Eli plans to investigate, and Hope warns Eli to be careful.
