“Days Of Our Lives” fans won’t want to miss a minute of the NBC soap opera this week. After Eric’s sentencing on Friday, as well as Summer’s big reveal about Maggie, every episode between April 18 and 22 is set to be jam-packed with drama.
For those that don’t remember where “Days of Our Lives” left off, Eric (Greg Vaughan) showed up late for his sentencing after getting a little too wild with Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) during his last night as a free man. Roman (Josh Taylor) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) were devastated when their son failed to show up, and were even more horrified when he finally arrived reeking of alcohol. The situation only got worse when Jennifer turned up at the police station. Marlena was appalled that Jennifer would allow Eric to go on a bender, especially the night before getting sentenced for vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Theresa (Jen Lilley) found themselves at odds over Summer (Marie Wilson). Theresa accused Summer of milking her sad story in order to gain sympathy and attention from Brady. Needless to say, Brady was not happy with her outburst — Especially after Summer revealed that Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) knowingly gave her up when she was a baby.
So, what will happen this week? We’re breaking down the plotlines on “Days of Our Lives” between Monday, April 18 and Friday, April 22.
Monday’s installment of “Days of Our Lives” will kick off with Hope (Kristian Alfonso) receiving a threat from Andre (Thaao Penghlis). Andre is in prison, but he’s still bent on revenge. He promises Hope that he’ll come after her and Rafe (Galen Gering) as soon as he’s released. Belle (Martha Madison) will experience her own bout of freedom when she hands Shawn (Brandon Beemer) the signed divorce papers. But Shawn will be preoccupied. The synopsis for the episode teases that Belle’s ex will be “uncomfortable with Lani’s [Sal Stowers] possessive behavior.”
Tuesday’s installment will allow Marlena to take her mind off of Eric. Abigail (Kate Mansi) will confide in Marlena exactly what she did to Ben (Robert Scott Wilson). Elsewhere, JJ (Casey Moss) will tell Chad (Billy Flynn) that Ben’s locked up. Meanwhile, Theresa will approach Victor (John Aniston) and Maggie with a “surprising suggestion.” Odds are it revolves around getting Summer out of the picture. But based on the synopsis for Wednesday’s episode, it doesn’t sound like she’ll have much luck on that front. According to the description, Summer will connect with Brady.
The mid-week installment will also feature more on Deimos (Vincent Irizarry) and Victor’s storyline. In order to get a step ahead of his brother, Victor will make Nicole (Arianne Zucker) an offer. What exactly is that offer? That’s currently unclear, but Victor is aware that Deimos has a “potential weak spot” for Nicole.
Nicole will show up at Deimos’ door in Thursday’s episode. However, she may need to be careful. Hope will receive a call from a stranger encouraging her to “confront” Deimos. Elsewhere, Abigail decides that she’s got to do “whatever it takes to get well.”
Friday’s episode will be a dramatic one as Fynn (Alexander Bruszt) treats Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) after she passes out. What Kayla doesn’t know is that her son, Joey (James Lastovic), is hatching a plan to run away with Jade (Paige Searcy).
“Days of Our lives” airs Monday through Friday at 1 p.m. EDT on NBC. What storyline are you looking forward to seeing play out on screen? Tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
