Days of Our Lives is the backdrop for a life-changing week in Salem, literally. At the end of the week, Salem jumps a year into the future. But first they have to get through this week full of drama, run-away brides and tragic accidents.
Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers) got married last week. However, Gabi (Camila Banus) threw a curveball in their plans by blackmailing Lani with Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) health. The week starts with Lani’s decision to go along with Gabi’s demands or to stand up.
DOOL’s Lani Dumps Eli, Punches Gabi
Gabi blames Lani for the death of her husband Stefan (Brandon Barash). She will do anything to get money back, including placing a remotely controlled pacemaker with Eli’s grandmother, Julie. When Gabi gives Lani an example of what the device can do, Lani must make a quick decision.
Will she marry the man of her dreams and cause Julie’s death? Or will she destroy her husband and leave him at the altar? Spoilers say that Lani hits Gabi later in the week, so it seems that Lani is saving Julie’s life.
Ben Finds a Dead Body
Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) suffered nightmares about his past as a murderer. He is desperate to protect Ciara (Victoria Konefal) from his bad sister, Jordan (Chrishell Hartley.)
However, before he can trace his sister, he encounters a shocking discovery. A body. Is this another victim of his sister or an unrelated death? We have to wait until the end of the week to find out who’s dead.
Two Weddings on Days of Our Lives
Never let an abandoned wedding be lost. Once the marriage of Lani and Eli is disrupted, two other couples take the opportunity to be linked. Both Jack (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer plus Justin (Wally Kurth) and Adrienne (Judi Evans) were engaged last week.
It seems as if the two couples profit from Eli’s accident and get married. However, one of these two couples is not expecting happy days.
Fan Favorite Jennifer Comatose
Jennifer has been pushing her luck with Dr. Rolf (William Utay). The mad scientist finally has enough and sends his accomplice. A brainwashed Hope thinks she is Princess Gina. Everyone else thinks it’s just Hope in a great Halloween costume.
Jennifer finds out that Princess Gina is back and what Dr. M’s master plan is. Rolf is. Unfortunately, Princess Gina pushes her before she can tell someone from a balcony. Jennifer lands for Jack and JJ’s (Casey Moss) feet in the middle of the town square. Jack accidentally sets the time in motion when he tries to save a comatose Jennifer.
Will Jennifer last another year? What other surprises await the viewers?
