DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lives Are Forever Changed When Kristen and Xander’s Plans Blow Up In Pivotal Episode

In an explosive and can’t miss episode of Days of our Lives, all roads lead to a warehouse that appears to be filled with presumed dead bodies of former Salemites!  Behind the experiments and illegal activities going on in this creepy place are Xander (Paul Telfer) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk)!  This takes us to the action where Nicole (Arianne Zucker), who has been forced under Xander’s thumb, knocks him out and takes the recording of her confession to murdering Deimos, as she desperately tries to find Eric (Greg Vaughan), who has been tied up to a chair in another part of the warehouse thanks to Kristen!

Nicole is traumatized with baby Holly in tow as she comes upon a confusing maze of locked door with the initials VA, AD, AV, SD, ED, JD, and WR on them.  Had you figured out who they all stand for???   Brady (Eric Martsolf) hears Nicole calling out for Eric and is now locked in the E.D. marked room thanks to Sami (Alison Sweeney), who is searching for EJ!  Brady asks Nicole to let him out, she says “no” and not until she finds Eric!

Kristen, who has Eric hostage, tells him that she and Xander need to move precious cargo in the warehouse and the building has been compromised! Sami finds her brother with Kristen! She demands to know where EJ is and attacks Kristen.  Cut to another shocker! Dr. Rolf (William Utay) is alive and prepares a large syringe for his mystery patient.  He explains to the man that the formula was far from perfected back then when they tried to use it, so he understands how apprehensive the patient would be trying it again. After injecting the patient, who we believe could be EJ, Rolf tells him Samantha Brady is here in the warehouse!  The man jumps up on the hearing of Sami’s name and grabs Rolf, but then a Bunsen burner is knocked over by accident and Rolf yells, “Fire!”  Then, the burner explodes in the man’s face like a fireball!

Elsewhere, Xander comes in and finds the Sami/Eric/Kristen situation as sounds of explosions rock the warehouse and everyone starts screaming. Xander and Kristen run out, Sami frees Eric, then rushes out to mind the man she believes is EJ.  But then, rubble falls upon Nicole and she is separated from Eric and Brady.  She fits Holly fits through a hole and Brady runs out of the building with the little girl leaving star-crossed loves Eric and Nicole holding hands through the rubble.

Kristen finds Brady outside with Holly and begs him to come with her.  She wants him back and he tells her no way, and she tells him he will be sorry for this! She runs back inside the burning building.  Sami goes into the lab and calls EJ’s name, but she sees Dr. Rolf and he runs out.  Sami gets the burned man out of the blazing inferno!

Back inside, Nicole begs Eric to watch over Holly, as she is not going to make it out of the fire.  Brady runs back in to save his brother, and hits him with a crowbar, when he won’t leave Nicole and could die himself. A gut-wrenched Nicole knows she is left to die with no way out!  Outside the warehouse, Eric comes to and loses it when he realizes Brady saved him and left Nicole inside!  Next, the warehouse door explodes!  Brady and Eric can’t get back in to save Nicole.

Inside, as the warehouse burns around her, Kristen says she is not afraid, and turns and reveals the Phoenix tattoo on her back! Looks like she is burning herself in the fire only to rise again!

But that’s not all! Rex has returned to Salem in the form of Kyle Lowder making his debut as Kate and Roman’s son. You remember the Gemini Twins???  During Lowder’s first scenes back in Salem (he previously played Brady Black), Ron Carlivati and the DAYS writing team took the opportunity to give us some quickie Rex history including that: sister Cassie was stuck in a piñata and left for dead once, and how he and Cassie fell out of the sky!  Now in present day, Rex tells Roman (Josh Taylor) he is engaged and before he can tell his dad her name, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) walks in with Baby Bonnie.  Rex holds the baby, not knowing that elsewhere Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath) is confessing to Belle (Martha Madison) that Rex is the true bio-dad of Baby Bonnie!

I haven’t watched in years-way too cartoonish for my taste. Although, it would be nice to have an explosion in Port Charles to get rid of the dead weight! – Parking Lot Peter, Insipid Lulu, Dumb Dawson, Dull Kim, One-Note Oscar, Petulant Kristina, etc.

Think you are on the wrong site. This is about DOOL, so take your grievances to the one about GH. Oh, and why do you even bother visiting this one, if you don’t even watch it and consider it cartoonish?
BTW, there was an earthquake in P.C a while back. Was that not devastating enough for you?

Let me see: AV= Ava Vitale? SD= Stefano DiMera? AD = Andre DiMera? JD = Jack Devereaux? And ED =EJ (Elvis) DiMera, of course. The rest I have no clue.

I am going to be pissed if Nicole was brought back to kill her off. After what she went through, she deserves to be free even if she did things in the past that would make me mad at her. As for the initials, I have tried to figure out who they relate to. Could SD be Stefano Dimera? Would be the most likely guess.

hi, was at the grocery store… break time… air conditioning… large open seating area… People watch… grab that SOD issue… savor argh! I immediately started tearing up… upon seeing Nicole pic on front page… Nicole dies… my immediate thought then went to Holly I likened Nicole as a stand alone act… how is it possible she could be on @DAYS for year after year… with no family and no children… marriage… no foundation to speak…till her last year… when she at last, THANKS to Chloe, w/Daniel, gave birth to Holly, how is that for YES YES YES something so heartfelt… Read more »

Need to clarify : 3rd para : “I likened Nicole as a stand alone act… ” ie: i’m certain Ariz Zucker had already signed out of the show… so Ron Carlivati really had no “time” to give her a deserved send off… which is really disappointing for a qualified success AND to laud an actress who carried this show w/Ali Sweeney… for what seems like decades… I will always give these two STAR Watt. these two gals… respectfully carried @DAYS with more lean years than Wattage surplus. I have always wanted Ari’ Nicole to have more of a foundation… @DAYS… Read more »

That is who was in the fire Sami thought was EJ…Kate having Tony alive will make her realize Abbi did not kill him so Kate will finally confess to Chad Gabi set Abbi up and why she went with it

Its a tad ridiculous that they would have Stefano presumably alive when Joe Mascolo is deceased. It would be way more believable that Bo would be in there, than Stefano! Good grief why dont they bring back Peter Blake Dimera and let him head up the family!? And for God sakes RECAST EJ WITH PAUL LEYDEN(ex-Simon, ATWT) He would be the PERFECT EJ!! James Scott is NOT coming back!

Sure love your idea of Paul Leyden playing E.J. Instead they have cast this twenty-five year old to play opposite a forty-plus Sammy.

Oh my god, Ron Carlivati is doing an excellent job, but too bad there wasn’t two more doors, one with O.M.G. and the other with R.C.

That had to be one of the stupidest and unbelievable shows I’ve ever seen. I know they can only do so much with sets and props, but those “rocks” for one thing looked about as heavy as a paper box, and they could have pulled Nicole out of the hole the baby was pulled from. Also, there should have more found than just the little necklace. Of course Zandor and Kristen escaped, to terrorize another day.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Photo: JPI

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
