On today’s Days of Our Lives, Salem citizens were lulled into a false sense of security, thinking that two of the three escaped convicts were apprehended – a brilliant move on the part of the writers.
This was a very smart plot device because it relieved the tension just enough for our favorites to let down their guard after being on high alert. Otherwise, there was no way Eve (Kassie DePaiva) or Nicole (Arianne Zucker) would have left Theresa alone (still can’t believe they did!), thus enabling Xander (Paul Telfer) to catch his prey all alone in her bridal dress. At the Kiriakis mansion, if John (Drake Hogestyn) had thought there was a chance of danger, he might have been ready when the commotion started and Orpheus (George DelHoyo) appeared holding Eve at gunpoint.
Now the “fun” begins as Roman (Josh Taylor) and Abe (James Reynolds) begin realizing how bad things may get. It dawns on Roman that the name on the wanted sheet for Orpheus isn’t accurate – and his wheels are spinning. Roman knows what he’s capable of, having been his partner years ago at the ISA. It will be interesting to watch as the details unfold and they discover that the wedding is serving as Ground Zero for this particular attack – but this is just Orpheus’s part of the game.
Wedding of Terror
A vulnerable Theresa (Jen Lilley) is left to face Xander all on her own. He’s been frothing at the mouth to deliver his own special brand of payback, and now he has his chance. The only saving grace in this is that at least Tate is at the mansion, and will hopefully stay off of Orpheus’s radar. And, what about Clyde (James Read)? His deadly plan for Salem will probably begin at Kate’s (Lauren Koslow) doorstep.
These scary happenings, putting so many of our favorites in jeopardy, create the intense drama that we have been yearning for – but will hopefully be delivered with fewer deaths than the 2015 Reboot. Seeing veterans return is far preferable to beloved characters meeting grisly deaths so here’s hoping the former stays true and the latter doesn’t materialize.
