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 just for Nicole… who would love her unconditionally.. and she could in her walk about, in her face… return LOVE. you see.. how tearful it is to see our Nicole walk in to the sunset. even knowing at that time @DAYS writing team couldn’t if they tried … WRITE . sounds, so familiar, right ? @GH shelley and Chris couldn’t even write for themselves, i’m certain. it was pretty clear this was done to give Greg Vaughan’ Eric, closure. WOW isn’t all the acting plus scripture… so hand in hand. i’m still beside myself.. that still… @DAYS is giving so much it’s fine by me … that perhaps Nicole… AND Xander… hopefully got out of that fire/explosion… that will be right with me… after all … with two such enigmatic SENSATION (s) are Ari and Paul. Xander must be kept alive… all his return visits… complete my mindset at all that daytime is. will Nicole return with her heart mind and soul over Holly be … a surefire MUST SEE. no doubt.. so with that card just waiting for top shelf.. in the wings… you know.. i’m tearing up over Nicole… hoping HAVE to PROP : Kyle Lowder ex-Brady now Rex : son of Kate – AND – GET THIS… LOL YES YES YES i’m through the roof ecstatic… son of Roman… MORE admiration and love for Josh Taylor. Yikes this is that much more stimuli just watching Kate and Roman together… Magic. Kyle Lowder: gave one of the best interview.. I’ve read in EON. just so refreshing, honest, endearing… heart tug damned happy for him… more or less saying he’s come full circle and he’s at home… again… and from what I’ve seen in preview … he’s looking the part… acting as natural as… and is fully on board contributing WITH – all – the troupe. Days staggers me on the complete richness the cast REEL LOL.. this SOD threw me… on the very next page… YES… my lady love from Genoa City… Amelia Heinle… Victoria Newman… love her to bits… she’s thee only Newman I have interest in… sorry MTS.. Nikki. when and if you ever get out of the entrapment and wings of Victor… let me know I tip my hat to Ari Zucker I tip my hat to Eileen Davidson I tip my hat to Doug Davidson I tip my hat to Stephen Nichols I tip… 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 faulted big time by having Rafe alter kill Fay Walker.

ANYWAY : it’s still a shock to the system… knowing Nicole DIED !!!! ???? ugh who can stand for this

here’s – hoping – Ari will return to get her heart mind and soul back intact with a mother / daughter reunion with Holly. she may not have had longevity with men… kinda of a bummer twist to see she never may have had that walk in the sunset w/ Xander… even if I will LOVE Paul Telfer forever

I still feel stilted knowing that Nicole was supposed to at the very least loving her life outside of Salem with HER daughter… so its a let down.

Cheers and Love to you Ms. Ari Zucker

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.

Chandler Massey Talks The Emotional Life Of Will Horton; Rob Scott Wilson & Victoria Konefal Share Insight On Key Scenes On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

Viewers of Days of our Lives recently watched Will (Chandler Massey) cross over to the light as he hovers near death, and sees his great grandma Caroline (Peggy McCay).  While happily Will survives, Caroline did not.  And through Will’s trauma of surviving a brain tumor, fans were treated to touching scenes between Chandler Massey and his on-screen love interest Freddie Smith (Sonny).

With June being Pride Month in many cities in the U.S. and countries around the world, Chandler also weighs-in on the importance of Will as an LGBTQ character on the canvas on television, and in particular, on daytime.  In this podcast, Chandler relates how it’s been amazing to make a difference to people and their lives.  He shares the story of how a man told him in a letter that he watched Days of our Lives with his mother and through watching the storyline; where Will came out to Marlena, how it inspired him to have that conversation with his own mother at that time.  He thought his mother would not understand or accept him, but because she watched Days and saw Will’s journey to come out, she supported her son and who he was.  As Chandler explained, it was confirmation that the story was helping people.

Later, #Cin fans get a treat when Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal sit-down on the podcast and offer up commentary on some of their most recent and pivotal scenes.  Rob and Victoria take us through cabin fires and police station scenes, and their on-screen love story – a must listen for viewers who are rooting for this duo against all odds in Salem.
