The Days of Our Lives (DOOL) recap for January 12 features Stefan and Vivian sharing information – including the fact they’re pulling the wool over Andre’s eyes!
Chad walked in on Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Andre (Thaao Penghlis) kissing and was traumatized. He told them about Theo needing to leave Salem and wanting Chad to be kind to Kate and not blame her. Chad told them he hired John and Andre wasn’t happy.
Meanwhile, Abigail (Marci Miller) worked with Stefan (Tyler Christopher) on the press release about him taking over and they ended up arguing about Stefano. He admitted he came to Salem because he wanted to get to know his family. He complimented her smile as Chad walked in.
Stefan extended his hand and Chad took it begrudgingly. After they left and Vivian arrived, she warned Stefan about all that’s going on behind his back — when they’ve been going behind Andre’s back.
Earlier, Vivian (Louise Sorel) paid Brady (Eric Marstolf) and Eve (Kassie DePaiva) a visit. She boasted that Gabi Chic will be staying with DiMera and warned that she and Stefan would bring them to their knees.
Brady warned Vivian against going after Maggie, and when she didn’t care, he grabbed her by the neck and choked her. He then kicked her out. Of course it turned on Eve (odd, since her daughter was strangled) and the two ran upstairs to have sex again.
Kitten’s Out of the Bag
Lani (Sal Stowers) was shocked that JJ (Casey Moss) overheard she’s pregnant. He realized she was considering an abortion and she admitted she wasn’t ready to have a baby. She told him she wasn’t going to tell him and he assumed that she thought she couldn’t count on him.
Lani said her decision had nothing to do with him. JJ told her he wants to make things work between them and asked if she felt the same. She does but she’s not ready to have a baby yet. He begged her to reconsider.
Meanwhile, Eli (Lamon Archey) brought Gabi (Camila Banus) flowers. He asked why she went with DiMera and she told him she trusted Kate. She then asked if he was jealous about her working with Chad — and told him he’s the only guy for her. He responded in kind.
