‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers indicates Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) is in serious danger, Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) is feeling guilty, and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) plays hero. Also, the search for Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) will continue. In case you missed it, let’s get to the day’s ‘Days of Our’ Lives recap.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Eating crow
Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) is feeling a bit guilty over their talk with Julie. He wonders if they were too hard on her. Lani assures him that they “raised her consciousness” and she’s a strong woman with a good heart. About that…
Later, they find out that Juile had a heart attack and is in the hospital. They rush to her side, and Lani is eventually left alone with Julie for a moment. She apologizes for being a bit hard on her, but Julie is cool. She’s also proud to have Lani in her family.
Clearly trying to make it up to Julie, she reverses her position on Doug’s Place. Despite her and Eli having grave concerns about this deal Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) made with Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) and how most of the people Kristen hates would be gathered for their engagement party, she tells Julie she’ll be happy to have the party there. No sage needed.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Bad news
Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) and Eli are taken aside by Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) to discuss Julie’s condition in private. It seems a lot of damage was done to her heart and she needs a transplant. The only issue is, Julie is too old. Kayla explains that she will never get near the top of a transplant list because she’s over 70. With not a lot of hearts to go around, the transplants are only given to those who have the best chance of living the longest with the procedure.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Memory Lane
Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) is kept in the dark about this bit of news, as Hope feels he can’t handle that today. While Hope and Lani are talking to Kayla, he stays behind with Julie and Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal). He reminisces about winning Julie back once by pretending he was dying. Seriously? Julie faked a heart attack to get her way once, and Doug did that? What is up with the people in this town? Apparently, this is considered okay, and even endearing, behavior.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Guilty conscience
Back at the DiMera mansion, Gabi is fretting over what Ben said about Julie being in the hospital. She realizes this means Julie was actually telling the truth, and she instantly feels horrible. She goes on and on about how she thought Julie was faking to Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash). They have some amusing banter before Stefan assures Gabi he believes her. He knows she would never do something like that. Gabi decides to head to the hospital to check on Julie’s condition.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Standing by his woman
While there, they come across Lani. It seems that Julie informed Lani that Gabi stepped over her, laughed, then left her to die.
Obviously, with only having Julie’s side, Lani is horrified and calls Gabi out for being a horrible person. She even says that Gabi wanted to finish the job when the fall down the stairs didn’t kill Julie.
Stefan, seeing Gabi’s clear anguish and anger over the accusation, steps in. He threatens to sue and says that Gabi is perfectly blameless here. After all, Julie faked that heart attack before. This doesn’t impress Lani, so Stefan says she doesn’t have to stand and listen to this before he leads Gabi out of the hospital.
Back at home, Gabi still continues to fret while Stefan swears she’s blameless here.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Bargaining
Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) tries to cut a deal with Walter (Josh Wingate) to let him and Vivian Alamain (Robin Strasser) walk out of there. He offers a better payday, but Walter has professional scruples. He plans to honor the deal he originally agreed to.
To that end, he plans to kill both Eric and Vivian. Vivian appears surprised by her being on the list, but he says no witnesses can be left behind. Not even her connection to the DiMeras is enough to save her.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Saved by the killer
Ben arrives at the hotel as asked just in time to walk in on this. He struggles with Walter for control of the gun before it goes off and kills Walter. Vivian recognizes Ben and snarks that he finally killed someone who deserved it. As much as we’re #TeamBen and #TeamCin, Vivian is awesome.
Anyway, now that the danger has passed, Eric is still worried about Nicole and how to find her now that their lead is dead. They find a phone on him, but it’s locked, so Vivian takes it. She says she’s good at cracking things that are locked. To get access to the phone, she takes Walter’s hand and uses his print to open it up. We still don’t know who the other boss is, but Eric might have a break at least.
‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers: Clean up
With all that settled, Ben calls with an update. He informs Stefan that he found Vivian and they’ll be heading back soon. They just need to take care of some stuff, because it got dicey when he arrived. Stefan wants to know what he’s talking about, but Ben refuses to say over the phone.
