The drama in Salem is never-ending. Monday’s episode of “Days of Our Lives” focused on Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) return to town as Chad (Billy Flynn) discovered the person who framed him for the “Necktie Murders.” But events will take a turn for Chad on Tuesday’s installment of the NBC soap opera when he finds himself in a “life-threatening situation.”

The synopsis for the Oct. 13 episode continues that Rafe (Galen Gering) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) will uncover more evidence that connects Chad to the murders. But what about Ben (Robert Scott Wilson)? Previews show the real killer starting to crack under the pressure.

Meanwhile, it sounds like Sami will be conducting her own investigation. Devastated on learning about the death of her son, Will (Guy Wilson), the newly returned Salem resident will become bent on finding the killer. Unfortunately, it sounds like her new pastime will worry her loved ones. Her mother, Marlena (Deidre Hall), and ex-husband, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), will “express deep concern” after she suffers from her big loss.

Elsewhere, Andre (Thaao Penghlis) will put Aiden (Daniel Cosgrove) in a tough spot. Will Aiden’s dark secrets be revealed?
