NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers reveal we recently got the answer to the big mystery in Salem. Who is Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash) really? As is typical lately, we were led to believe he’s Stefan DiMera (Barash), devoid of memories like the rest of Salem’s walking dead when they first returned. But is this a good thing or a bad thing? Here’s our take on it.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Stefan
We first met Stefan with a different face. ‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers reveal Tyler Christopher was in the role when we first began watching. And we have to say, we still love him as Stefan more.
Although the chemistry Barash and Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera) have is what ultimately sold us on the switch, we still wish Tyler had stayed.
His Stefan was a bit more DiMera-like to us, whereas Barash didn’t have the same threatening presence. But he is still fun working with Gabi, and he grew more into the part as the episodes went by.
Unfortunately, that was short-lived, as Stefan got killed off in the most final way possible. It ended a love story fans couldn’t get enough of, and that makes us sad.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Jake
On the other hand, ‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers reveal Barash is back as Jake. Once it was revealed he’s Stefan’s identical twin, it became clear we would likely never see Stefan again.
And Barash’s mannerisms and speech pattern were clearly different, which we liked. It shows range, as well as bringing a different element to Salem and the DiMera family.
Yet, at the same time, we see clear hints of the DiMera genetics in there. He was, after all, involved with the mob and nearly got Gabi and others killed because of it.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: The winner
So, what character do we prefer seeing Barash as? We’re going to give the edge to Jake. He’s got that edge to him, yet he’s not as problematic as Stefan. Stefan did have sex with a mentally ill woman that he is technically related to. That’s not exactly someone to easily get behind.
By contrast, Jake couldn’t believe that his brother actually did such a terrible thing. Plus, he was beyond horrified to hear his parents are responsible for so much evil, something the old Stefan didn’t exactly seem bothered by.
Honestly, we think an outsider will be needed in DiMera. One who doesn’t seem to have a lot of interest in the riches, yet has enough street smarts to handle people.
Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) is the only one of Stefano DiMera’s (Stephen Nichols) kids that has an interest in/ability to run DiMera. But we’ve also seen where he’s been acting off. If he’s not being controlled to some level still, he’s clearly not being his most rational self.
And the obvious weirdness of the Shins has us wondering if his ambition and blind loyalty to the family legacy causes him to miss the signs. If something big is going on behind the scenes at that company, fresh eyes might be the only ones to see it clearly.
