She was forced to let the other woman assume her identity and destroy her chances of ever returning to Salem and the life she wanted, but now that Kristen's scheme has been exposed and Eric ha tracked Nicole down, the time has come for her to return to Salem and face off against the woman who faked being her on the Wednesday, Sept. 11 episode of “Days of Our Lives.”

After Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) was literally unmasked on the NBC soap, she revealed Nicole (Arianne Zucker) had never died in the warehouse fire, and that she had pulled her out, tied her up, and forced her to let her assume her identity so she could come back to Salem and not only get control of DiMera, but win Brady (Eric Martsolf) back. Armed with information on the condition that it would get her a plea deal, Eric (Greg Vaughan) took off to find Nicole and Holly, which he did. Now, after getting them back to Salem and the loved ones they left behind, the time will come for Nicole and Kristen to come face-to-face once more. And while she’s used to being the town pariah because of her crimes, Kristen may be in for her biggest confrontation yet.

“Nicole has an explosive confrontation with Kristen!” spoilers reveal.

Nicole will naturally be livid about what Kristen forced her to do, and she will also be incensed by the things Kristen did while pretending to be her. However, she may also have to accept that Kristen will once again get away with the crimes she’s committed since it was part of a deal, and eager to get her life with Eric back, Nicole could just walk away.

Of course, she won’t be the only one who has a few words for the evil DiMera woman, because as she walks free and attempts to still find a way to get through to Brady, she will be warned by his father, John (Drake Hogestyn) to steer clear of him and do everyone a favor by getting out of town once and for all.

“John issues a stern warning to Kristen,” spoilers state.

“Days of Our Lives” airs weekdays on NBC.
