DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Alex Learns He’s Victor’s Son While Xander Learns He’s the Father of Sarah’s Baby

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, two bombshell secrets were revealed that rocked to the core two men who have been lied to by the people they love. First, in the pick-up from Monday, Justin (Wally Kurth) tells Alex (Rob Scott Wilson) that in Victor’s new will, he is in fact, Victor’s biological son.

A devastated Justin has to tell Alex that he is not his biological father, and that Angelica had an affair with Victor, and she made Victor agree to never claim Alex as his own for it would send shockwaves through the Kiriakis clan.

While Justin sits down with Alex and assures him that this does not change the fact that he still considers himself Alex’s dad, that doesn’t seem to make Alex feel any better. Alex feels like he has been lied to his whole life, especially by Victor.  In addition, this news means that Alex inherits the other 50% of Victor’s legacy. The other 50% was given to Maggie (Suzanne Rogers), even though at the time of his death, Victor was supposedly never legally divorced from Vivian (Louise Sorel).

Bonnie (Judi Evans) finds out the news from Maggie, and wants to be there for her husband, so she heads back from Horton Town Square to comfort Justin. Alex asks Justin to leave as he needs some time alone. Justin hugs his ‘son’ from behind and then walks out. Later, Justin breaks down in tears in Bonnie’s arms.  Meanwhile, Alex is seen looking at a portrait of Victor trying to process what this all means for him moving forward.

While this is playing out, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) breaks down and tells Xander (Paul Telfer) what she overheard Rex (Kyle Lowder) and Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier) talking about – that Xander is the biological father of Sarah’s (Linsey Godfrey) baby.  Chloe even goes so far to admit, that at first, she was going to hide the secret, not only to keep Xander, but because Sarah didn’t want him to know. However, she had second thoughts.

Chloe levels with Xander knowing when she tells him, he is going to hightail it over to the Brady pub where Sarah is tying the knot with Rex.  An emotional Xander tells Chloe he loves her, but they both know it’s the end of the line for them.

At the Brady pub, Phillip officiates the ceremony and Rex and Sarah say their “I do’s,” but then, Xander shows up.  He confronts Sarah and she admits it’s true. The baby is his. He asks to speak to her privately and so they head out to do so. Meanwhile, in the aftermath, Chloe gets a knock on her door, and it’s none other than Phillip who shows up to console her. Will they hit the sheets for old times sake?

So, what did you think about the performances today of Wally Kurth, Rob Scott Wilson, Nadia Bjorlin and Paul Telfer? Are you glad Xander knows the truth? Happy that Alex is Victor’s son? Do you think Xander will still be revealed to be the true son of Victor’s when all is said and done? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Logically, it makes more sense that Xander would be the “secret son” and not Alex. The vague language in Victor’s will could be interpreted either way. Also… one could interpret some of Victor’s past actions as verifying that Xander was his son.

Many times Victor’s actions toward Xander were kinda harsh… just like the way he treated Phillip. But not necessarily the way he treated Brady, Sonny, or Alex. He also made Xander & Phillip the “Co-CEOs ” of Titan for a while. Which is exactly what you would expect an older executive to do, if you’re feeling your own mortality, and want to prepare your two sons for taking over the business. Ultimately, neither of them proved to be very good at the job, but at least Victor gave them the shot.

Now this would mean that somebody probably forged the letter supposedly from Angelica that was in the briefcase with the “final” will & testament. Who would do such a thing? Vivian seems like the obvious suspect, but I’m not sure what her motivation would be. If she somehow knew what the contents of the will were, she would know that Victor had already found a “workaround” to her claims of still being his legal wife. Seems like a bit of a gamble that she would bet on Alex – being mistakenly named as an heir to 50% of the Kiriakis Empire, cutting her in on a piece of the pie.

I’m sure somebody will start a rumor that Angelica has escaped from Hell, and she’s behind this herself… but last I checked, she was still here!

Teresa did this is the only explanation. No one believes Alex is Victor’s son.

Teresa literally had a few seconds with the briefcase between the time she broke into it, and Alex & Brady returning to the hotel room. And she spent those few seconds with her attention on the stack of love letters to Victor from her dead grandmother Caroline. I’m sure Theresa would find them fascinating reading, just as Kayla did when she was locked in the basement of Victor’s old house in Greece.

There’s no way Theresa had the time to forge the letter from Angelica, much less the entire will.

Where Theresa’s sinister motivations are going to come in.. is now that Alex is going to be the heir to 50% of the Kiriakis “empire” (at least as long as nobody proves the documents are phony) it’s going to make Alex a prime target for gold digging. She was already going to use him to make Brady jealous…. but now she might actually want to keep him for real.

They need to do a DNA test. Alex looks to young to me. I wonder if Teresa had something to do with that letter.

If it wasn’t for Vivian ; I wouldn’t care for this show at all. More Vivian ; less Maggie, less Kate.

Who is Angelica?

Angelica Deveraux was Jack Deveraux’s adoptive mother. Her husband Harper was a senator who became a serial killer. She had a fling with Justin back in the day, and Alex was the eventual result of that.

Biggest irony about all of this was that Angelica was originally played by Jane Elliot… who of course is best known as Tracy Quartermaine on General Hospital…. where Wally Kurth plays her son, Ned!

And during one of Tracy’s weddings to Luke on GH, they gave her full name as “Tracy Angelica Quartermaine”, so it’s not like they haven’t had some fun with this bizzare coincidence.

Now on the other horn…. any imagined hookup between Angelica & Victor Kiriakis….. if it happened, I sure as Hell don’t remember it. I fully admit to having “Fuzzy Devil Memory” when it comes to things that happened back in the 1980s, but I’d bet any number of souls that this retcon was something ReRon just made up, with no basis at all in the established Days history.

Victor attempted to marry Anjelica in an attempt to get Justin under his thumb. At the time, she was pregnant with Alex, who she stated was neither Harper’s nor Justin’s. She married Neil Curtis and passed him off as the father, but let it slip to Adrienne that Justin was because she wanted to break them up. But Victor showed no interest in her onscreen until after she got pregnant, and even then, it wasn’t Anjelica’s M.O. to lie to Justin to “spare his feelings”, like the letter said.

Love the story, I wish Gabby was still in the show. Look like they would at least recast her with someone else.. I hope that Xander cook is Victor’s real son. He needs just one break. That’s something good will happen for him. It’s hard to be a good person when everything keeps going wrong. Give him a chance!
