Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers for have not-Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) making a crucial mistake as she and Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) fight over a launch, Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) asking a lot of questions, and a new detective trio. If you missed the action, let’s catch you up in today’s Days of Our Lives recap.
Days of Our Lives spoilers: Kristen makes critical error. Her days in Salem are numbered.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Interrogation
Hope may have been sidelined a minute by Claire Brady’s breakdown, and finding out that Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) has been passing time with the ex (Carrie Brady, played by Christie Clark), but she hasn’t forgotten Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini).
Today, after thanking Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) for trying to spare her feelings, she decides to question Xander Cook (Paul Telfer). She wants to know where that necklace came from and accuses him of lying when he says he bought it. She explains how Ted tried to give her that one-of-a-kind necklace, but she’d refused.
Cornered, he claims to have come across Ted trying to pawn the thing. He liked it and thought it’d make a nice gift for Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey), so he offered double what the pawn shop was going to give. Good save. Maybe. We don’t think Hope is going to give this up so easily. Especially once others get involved.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Putting it together
Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder), still fuming over the idea that Xander tried to give his woman a gift like that, ends up offering it to Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin). He thought it’d be better to let someone else enjoy it, rather than give it back to Xander.
While the pair is talking, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) arrives. He’d just come from giving Xander hell for sending Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow) on a trip without his say so. Rex ends up passing along a text he’d just gotten from mom confirming Xander’s story. Brady feels it’s odd that message would come so fast after the talk with Xander. What’s more, Rex is still bothered by the fact her first message (and this one) don’t sound like her. She didn’t include the xoxoxo that she always puts in messages to him. Now, he, Brady, and Sarah are suspicious. This scheme is falling apart so fast, it’s unreal.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Shower time
Speaking of our captives, Kate and Ted are hungry, as Xander hasn’t arrived with more food. They’ve been subsisting off the champagne he left, which she fears is going to give them alcohol poisoning if they keep drinking it. Besides that, she thinks Ted stinks.
Ted, being the nice guy he is, has an idea. He takes his shirt off and then proceeds to “bathe” with an unopened bottle of the champagne. Kate can’t even, and this leads to more bickering between them. He thinks she still wants him, but she thinks he lost the best thing that ever happened to him when he betrayed her. You know they’re going to end up back in bed if they stay there much longer. If they do, being the key phrase. You’ll see why in a sec.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Slipping up
Not-Nicole and Gabi are going to give Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash) an ulcer at some point, because they are fighting almost instantly when Nicole arrives for work. Gabi is still insecure about her brand now that Basic Black is going to be part of DiMera. And not-Nicole just wants this trashy girl with a low-rent line out of her way.
Things get even more heated when Stefan suggests a duel launch for Gabi Chic and Basic Black. Gabi’s all for it and is immediately filled with ideas for the launch that Stefan loves. Not-Nicole, not so much.
‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) Spoilers:
She gets so impassioned in her attempt to shut Gabi down and do things her way, that she makes a crucial slip by saying “Father” wouldn’t be down for the beach idea. This confuses Stefan, who calls her out on it. Not-Nicole covers by claiming that she knows the man well enough to know he wouldn’t like that. As much as she doesn’t like him, she does have to admit that he had good business sense. She pushes so far that Stefan ends up sending her down to the tunnels to handle some grunt work to put her in her place. Not-Nicole protests doing it alone, but Stefan suggests unemployment as the alternative.
While he’s telling Gabi he came to her defense because he liked her idea, and that he is teaching entitled “Nicole” a lesson, Not-Nicole is down in the tunnels fuming about her situation. She ends up opening the door to the room Kate and Ted are being held in, which leaves them all looking shocked.
