Days Of Our Lives

Who's Framing Chad DiMera For The Necktie Murders On DAYS?

Things are looking so bad for Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn).  First, Serena Mason (Melissa Archer) is found murdered following a drunken altercation between her and Chad.

Next, after having a confrontation at the Horton Town Square with Paige Larson (True O’Brien), she is next found dead.  Both women have necktie’s draped around their lifeless bodies.  Each time a murder has happened, Chad has awakened from what seems to be a drunken stupor and clueless to what transpired, before he got to his room.   Was he dumped in the room by someone else?  Who is framing the young DiMera?  Is someone drugging him and spiking his drinks?  Clearly, Chad is not the culprit.

The early odds look predictable: either slimeball Clyde Weston (James Read), or his in-need-of anger-management-lesson son, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is setting Chad up to take the fall.   But is it it really one of these two guys?  Both certainly have cause to want Chad out of the way …  for good!

Watch this week’s NBC promo for DAYS after the jump.  Then weigh-in:  Who is setting up Chad DiMera for the murders of these two young women?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Please do not make this mystery an obvious one a las GH’s Who Killed Silas? plot. I am hoping for some genuine twists and turns. DAYS is really working well for this disenfranchised soap fan. Looked to Salem after ATWT and AMC closed shop and have been happy for most part. I worry about some of this secret agent stuff but hope it will not become hokey or strain credulity.

A great twist would be it ‘IS’ Chad after all!!!

Very good!

YES!……… But now I’m sad 🙁 because this Chad is growing on me.

Agreed, Iakovos. The obvious answer is Clyde. Too easy? Yeah. I think the best twist would be for Ben to have multi personalities….well, at least two….he should be the killer. No one will ever guess…..well for a while. Can you imagine tracking his girlfriend on his phone? Good grief, he’s got issues. WOW!!!! it is a true manifestation of mental instability. Maybe he killed his own mother and blocked it out?
I would say the other candidate/suspect is Aiden. The writers are doing their best to tease us and, at times, throw us off track, but, just like MadMaddie, it has to be someone who’s exiting the Days stage. So, who is leaving? I have no clue.

Kelly

Well, the killer could be Ben. He does have motive to kill women and frame Chad. Ben is not a fool; he know deep down inside that Abby is in love with Chad.

Aiden is out at Days…also kind of an obvious choice for the killer because he has the shady past and secrets etc.

Where is Celeste with her strange hats, tarot cards and vague warnings of eeeeeeveeeel?

CeeCee
CeeCee

I don’t know who Celeste is, Torqumada. I’ve only been watching for a few years. But, maybe, Susan….isn’t she the one who says, eeeeeveeel? ….which brings Kristen to mind. LOL. Let’s go aaaall the way and say it was she. We already know she has nine lives. But, I don’t see the motive. I would think if Kristen were to be back, the first person she’d kill would be Theresa, no? Or Marlena? I guess, I answered my own question, LOL. later.

hmmm celeste’s son is what I’m thinking cameron out for chad

I feel it’s Clyde behind it but Aiden is doing the killing.

CeeCee

Sounds very plausible, Mindy. But, how does Stefano fit into all this? Could Aidan be working for both, for different reasons?

Mari

It’s not Chad, Clyde or Ben…..it’s Andre….

MsD

It’s driving me crazy! Logically (a word one should never use for a soap) Clyde would be the #1 suspect. He killed Serena & Paige to set-up Chad and he also killed Paige to show JJ he means business. He attacked Marlena because he’s probably having Chad followed and knows Marlena will get to the truth and the last time Marlena & Clyde talked it was very strange. This is a soap though. That scenario might be too easy and it very well could be Ben. I guess we get to find out tomorrow 9/24. Someone had a good thought, Maybe it is Aiden doing the killing and Clyde giving the orders. Whoa!

Steve
Steve

It’s Andre!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

It is he wants Dimera power and money and will share with no one…including that Dimera interloper Chad!

Awwww!!! JIIIMM!! LOL. I love Chad. He’s one of the good guys…and sexy.

I haven’t watched in a few weeks … need to catch up!

Is it possible it’s Xander? He wears a lot of neck ties … or at least he did until Uncle Vic made him the landscaper.

Xander is no longer on the show . You need to start watching as the stories with the new writers have just begun . Patch and Bo are back ! If you’ve got friends who no longer watch the show please tell them to start watching again !

Doug and Caroline are having a secret love affair behind Julie’s back and are taking turns killing off all those who have seen them making out in their favorite love nest…those fake woods…this explains why there are no birds or squirrels in these woods…these sadistic Senior Salem Stranglars will kill off animals too…no wonder Betty White wont watch…lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

OMG. that is so funny…..poor Caroline…she can barely stand.

Chad mentioned to Rafe that he got drunk faster than he thought, and twice when he drank he was knocked out so someone is putting something stronger in his alcohol.

Notice how Clyde was at the bar when Clyde and Serena were drinking? Clyde must’ve spiked his drinks at the bar and put it in his bottles at home.

sue
sue

ive been saying that, if ya notice Clyde is usually near Chad when hes at the club and he is prob sneaking in his room and spiking the bottles if liquor thats in Chads room, maybe Clyde and Justin is working together

CeeCee
CeeCee

@sue/@blake.
I will believe anything underhanded by the despicable Clyde, but I don’t think Justin is dirty. He just hates all things DiMera and wants to make a killing, if you will. Later, guys.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Exactly. The drug lord ‘took care’ of Chad, alright!!

blake
blake

Yeah in a new promo Clyde is right behind Chad in the bar and of course Chad has a drink.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe its the bartender…or Chad is nuts with a split personality and as ‘Brad’ is framing himself for the murders he really is committing!!!

blake

Now that would be a nice change.

CeeCee

Hey, jimh. I said something like that….except that it’s Ben with the multiple personalities. That guy is strange.

Trish

I was hoping it was Xander, but he was in jail when Serena was killed. I’m hoping that it is either Clyde or his son Ben. I have no use for Clyde at all, he is a waste of air time. He thinks he is smarter than anyone.

Ben has a really bad temper and he is being manipulate by his father. Anyone who has an app on their phone to keep track of their girlfriend has a serious problem of trust.

Les

Lots of good red herrings…but who has the potential to drive a twisty, nail biting and dramatic story line? Ben.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I think Ben, also. Fits the psychopathic profile. But, at the last minute, the writers will suddenly change venue.

Les

Agreed, a surprise twist in the works!

I know the character of Andre DiMera is coming back—could it be him?

perhaps clyde is masquerading as tony dimera or Andre dimera…tony can disguise himself as Andre or reverse as Andre was the killer years ago.

I have heard James Read who plays Clyde is supposed to be leaving the show but nothing has really been confirmed yet.

I think the writers missed a few important scenes in the past week. Where were the scenes with JJ telling Jennifer, Abigail, Daniel and Theresa. I like a fast-paced storyline, but slow it down enough to have the scenes that we want to see. Why wasn’t Abigail concerned about Paige dying instead of Chad being jailed? Why was Theresa worried about become Nicole’s business partner instead of being with Eve?

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

Theresa doesn’t know about Paige’s death.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Isn’t that an oversight by TPTB, 4ever?!… By the same token, wouldn’t the entire town know by now? …unless some are living under a rock. It’s all over the papers, no? Later.

Tim S.

I agree with you.. I would have liked to seen some of the scenes of Jennifer, Daniel and Abigail finding out that Paige died… that was a big miss on their part…

Paul

I just want the scene where Jennifer offers her sympathy to Eve. Then I can enjoy Eve slapping her silly.

I am trying to keep track of everyone’s neckties to see if any of them end up around someone’s neck– I want to guess Justin because he is so eager to get Chad for the murders, but I am hoping it will be someone we will never guess, which is the fun of a good murder mystery

4ever DAYS

Daniel could be using the ties that he doesn’t wear or Jennifer could be using Jack’s ties!

Let’s add Adian to that list of possible serial killer. The metrosexual has had it with his pretend feelings for Hope.
Here is a thought. Could the killer be a past character on Days Of Our Lives that will be revealed on the 50th Anniversary episode?
I’m going to enjoy Thaao P. returning as Andre DiMera. Is Andre jealous of Chad being a DiMera? Could it be Andre framing Chad?

Tim S.
Tim S.

It’s Jack.. he back…. but not as Jack and he will being brainwashed into being the murderer by Andre..

Tim and James.
Hi,
These murders have proven one thing. Our minds are working overtime. The result? It could be anyone….a present, past or future character. I think the writers have accomplished what they probably set out to do. Keep us guessing and on our toes….Thing is, if this storyline/guessing game is prolonged; knowing myself, I will most likely lose interest….like the Fluke story….stale and flat.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

I like your theory. I once said it could be Jack under mind control.

I hope it’s Daniel. Salem’s favored son. Oh, that would be sweet. He’s been sporting an extra evil beard lately, so….

soaps.com is reporting that Kassie DePaiva in on her way out….

ta-da : w/drum roll…. so is : Shawn Christian… Daniel the dud

i’m going to be crushed if it’s true about Kassie DePaiva

she belonged in the big leagues of the vets plus leading lady status…. it’s not her fault the writing was so stymied and left her , on her own. WASTE!

MBmomof3

Oh NO! Not KdP! She’s brilliant. If this is true another waste of incredible talent. Yet we’re stuck with Kate Mansi? Ugh!

It’s probably Ben who’s trying to frame Chad, but neither him, nor Clyde are the necktie killer. I think it’s Eric. When Kristen drugged him and he had lost his memory, I think that drug did something to his mind, and he has 2 personalities. Like a Jeckle and Hyde type. So he has no clue to what he’s done. And he doesn’t need a motive, something just snaps, and he turns into the killer. Maybe something triggers this, and he kills that person who sets him off. And Ben and Clyde are just taking advantage of the situation, planting the evidence to make it look like Chad is the killer, just to get him out of the picture, and away from Abby.

Mo

Clyde.

Lindsey

They said the killer is supposed to be a ” legacy” character and someone that´s been on for years. I think that leaves out Ben and Clyde directly. Both too obvious choices, although Ben with his creepy vibes and anger problem seems realistic. And he would want to get Chad out and away from Abby´s life.
However my money is on either Daniel, Eric or Justin. Both Eric and Justin are behaving very oddly and out of normal. Eric feels kind of dark to me right now. Justin seems way too eager to nail Chad too. Lucas? The poor guy never succeeds in keeping a woman, has he grown hate for women? Who knows.

Les
Les

Hmmm…..some interesting possibilities on your list.

Linda

It’s definitely not Chad — obvious that some one is setting him up. Not Clyde either, he’s got something else up his sleeve — maybe killing Daniel (since he’s close with JJ and Shawn Christian is leaving the show). The killer is most likely Andre who comes back this month — he’s out to get anyone that stands in his way of DeMera money, etc., — including Chad, and is also out to get revenge on John! Anyway, that’s what I think!

Kelly
Kelly

I heard this crazy rumor that it’s not really Andre who returns; it’s actually Tony who has been pretending to be Andre. As I said it’s a very crazy rumor. I still think the killer is Ben who has deep seeded rage because Abby is in love with Chad.

Winston Jeffers

I think I know that slimeball Clyde Weston drugged Chad’s drink just as sure as he killed EJ and he also had Sonny stabbed in the Park the man is certifiable he needs to be arrested before any more mayhem continues

Clyde!

Lyon Baker

Yesterday Abby said to Ben “I don’t know who you are sometimes” giving the viewer a slight hint that Ben has two distinct personalities. So, it could be Ben who is the Salem cheap polyester necktie killer. Then again, it could be Clyde.
Maybe it’s Cierra, Hope’s bratty kid.
She’ll be convicted and sent away to Little Girl Prison and when she gets released she will of course be played by a 25 year old.

TJ

I am ready for the killer to be revealed. I understand it showed Ben throwing the ties away today, but I don’t think it is him. I still think it is his dad Clyde. They could be working together.

Dumbest plot line yet no motive for Ben to kill the two women- and Nicole with Daniel ?- unbelievable -been watching for over 20 years and finally done – can’t take the ridiculousness of it all any more

NBC Chairman, Paul Teledgy Says: “Days of our Lives Is Going To Carry On”

Very exciting and hopeful news Days of our Lives fans, and those of the soap genre, coming out of the NBC Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena, California Saturday morning.

During the lead-off executive session, NBC Chairman Paul Teledgy opened up about the status of Days of our Lives with the network since no official announcement had been made on their end as to the renewal pick-up of the beloved daytime drama.

However, Teledgy revealed:  “We are in a middle of finding out very soon,” and then added, “Of course Days of Our Lives is going to carry on. We love it. Millions of Americans watch it every week. I know that will be good news for the fans.”

Teledgy also told Deadline after the executive session that negotiations are still ongoing and the series will stay on NBC, and will not be moving onto the upcoming Peacock streaming service said to bow very soon.

The chairman’s comments come nearly two months following DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday’s comments to the cast that the show had been renewed for its upcoming season.  That came on the heels that for cost-cutting measures, during the dark months, that the cast had been let- \out of their contracts.
