Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Brady (Eric Martsolf, not pictured) find themselves dealing with a new threat when Xander (Paul Telfer) shows up at their cabin on the April 27, 2017 episode of “Days of Our Lives.” NBC

They were prepared to start fresh again in a new location after a close call, and have finally declared their love for one another and taken things to the bedroom. Unfortunately for Nicole and Brady however, their happiness and new life together in Canada will come to an unexpected halt after a new threat arrives on their doorstep on the April 27, 2017 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

After dealing with the potential threat Scooter (Robb Derringer) had posed to them, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) and Brady (Eric Martsolf) were ready to leave Canada behind as soon as their new passports arrived. They also finally found themselves in a better place as well when it came to their feelings for one another, and had finally begun to make love. Unfortunately for them, their happiness together will face the most unexpected threat they could have imagined on the NBC soap.

The two fugitives have always worried about the possibility of the cops arriving at their door, or even Deimos (Vincent Irizarry) or Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin). And while none of those options were pleasant because they would mean jail, losing Holly, and possibly dealing with the consequences of Deimos’ obsessive behavior and anger, they were far less threatening than the option they will be presented with.

Brady and Nicole will be shocked when a masked gunman breaks into the cabin to threaten them with a gun as he holds on to baby Holly. Deathly afraid that this mysterious gunman will kidnap her little girl, Nicole will do whatever it takes to protect her. However, nothing will keep the gunman from completing what he set out to do--and after Brady is shot, Nicole will unmask him. When she does that, she will be stunned to see none other than Xander (Paul Telfer), not only back in her life, but back from the presumed dead. And knowing that the man who has wanted revenge on her and who already tried to kill her before is back could mean Nicole will be dealt the biggest blow of all to her plans for the future.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
