The Days of Our Lives (DOOL) recap for Thursday, April 12 features Leo working hard to have his cake and eat it, too… but Sonny has a surprising reaction to what he’s selling.
Not Stepping Aside
Hope (Kristian Alfonso) was furious when Rafe (Galen Gering) said to take him to court if she wants to end their marriage. He then vowed to never give up on her and walked out, which made Hope smile.
Sonny (Freddie Smith) updated Justin (Wally Kurth) about Ari. Rafe stopped by and Justin told him that he filed Gabi’s appeal. Rafe said he’s a great attorney – and wanted to hire him. Justin said the best he could do was stall the annulment, which was what Rafe wanted.
Adrienne (Judi Evans) suggested that Will (Chandler Massey) write about himself for his first Spectator assignment. She suggested that Dr. Rolf’s research could benefit so many and talking with Susan (Eileen Davidson) could help. Will was a little uncomfortable but promised to think about it..
Kate (Lauren Koslow) pressured Paul (Christopher Sean) to find stuff on Vivian faster. When he pushed back, she backed off. Will later found Kate at the Pub and thanked her for the job offer but he’s working at the paper.
Stick To The Plan, Stan…or Leo
Vivian (Louise Sorel) pressured Leo (Greg Rikaart) to seduce Sonny. Leo had already Sonny meet him in the square and tried to tell Sonny they should stay on the down-low, because what they had was worth fighting for. Sonny said he could quit and when Leo refused, Sonny ended it. Vivan showed up and pressured him – and Paul saw it.
Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) taunted Ciara (Victoria Konefal) about how she still planned to beat her. She later called Brady and updated him on all she’s doing to win. After, Claire worked Tripp (Lucas Adams) to feel sorry for her.
Ciara confided in Hope, who told her if revenge was why she entered, she should quit. Ciara told her it started out that way but coming in first was a rush. Hope gave her blessing if it’s for the right reasons. Ciara then told her mom that she belongs with Rafe.
Ciara found Tripp, who admitted that he voted for Claire, which crushed her. Meanwhile, Claire video chatted with Theo. She remembered him bringing her followers in the past and dropped a hint that she would love to find a way to rig the contest.
