‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers relate that Not-Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) is a threat to Marlena Evans (Deirdre Hall), and Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) are back at it, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) is fuming over Tony DiMera’s (Thaao Penghlis) marriage, and everyone seems to be investigating the murder of Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini). In case you missed it, let’s get to the day’s Days of Our Lives breakdown.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Murder fantasy
Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) is waiting for Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) when Marlena stops by. She keeps knocking on the door, saying she knows Not-Nicole is in there. Kristen fantasizes about letting Marlena see her real face, then shooting her dead in the hotel room, finally ridding herself of her nemesis.
In reality, she allows Marlena to come in as she wears the Nicole disguise. Marlena tries to talk to her about her grief, but Not-Nicole is totally not having this. She claims she has no need, nor desire to speak with Marlena about her pain, then insults her before finally demanding she leave. Otherwise, she’ll call the cops and get a restraining order. Marlena leaves, but says the offer to talk is standing.
Later, Kristen enjoys more private time with Brady. He still can’t get his mind off Kristen today, and says she seems familiar, yet different.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Not one day more
While Kristen has her man, poor Tony is having to explain to Anna why he didn’t call her. She’s furious about that, but he says it took a long time to get his strength and health back. He didn’t want to break news like that over the phone. She wonders a moment whose ashes she’s been carrying around all this time before they argue over his marriage to Not-Nicole.
She thinks that if Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) is now CEO, there’s no need to keep up with this farce. He explains he feels responsible for her after saving her life and has to see this through. He won’t explain the full extent of why he can’t just divorce Not-Nicole, and Anna is upset. She thinks they’ve lost enough time and she won’t lose a minute more. She advises him to figure out his situation asap or there could be serious consequences for them both. She has no clue…
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Everyone’s a detective
Not only is Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and the Salem PD looking into Ted’s murder, but now Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) has enlisted John Black (Drake Hogestyn) to help her figure out what happened. She explains all the facts, then promises to get in touch with Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) to see about any fingerprints left of the bracelet she found. Um… she thinks he’s seriously going to give info about a case? Oh, wait. This is Salem. He’ll share with her, no problem.
Also investigating are Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) and Will Horton (Chandler Massey). They’d confronted Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) today about the case, supposedly for an article in the Spectator. Xander suggests that they killed Ted in retaliation for the whole blackmail thing. He also suggests Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow) might have done it for the same reason, or out of jealousy over him being with Hope. Will insists none of them did it and calls him out as not appearing in the CCTV footage. Xander declines to address that, as he doesn’t wanna jeopardize his immunity deal.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: One more problem
Also today, we have another person keeping the dual anniversary parties quiet: Hope. John Black (Drake Hogestyn) had invited her, which she was happy to accept. Marlena comes along and gets a minute alone with Hope to invite her to the same event. They both swear her to secrecy.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: At it again
Sarah comes home to a surprise romantic dinner, which leads to food fight over whether or not to put the sauce in with the spaghetti. For the record? We’re #TeamEric on this—mix it up! They also banter about her messy nature that has every dish dirtied and all over the place when she cooks before the food starts flying, which leads to a repeat of the other day. At least Sarah’s not wearing Rex Brady’s (Kyle Lowder) ring this time.
