The Days of Our Lives recap for Tuesday, October 9 features Eric getting quite a shock about Nicole’s living arrangements.
Eric (Greg Vaughan) was stunned to see Xander (Paul Telfer) in Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) apartment and put him in a headlock until Nicole got him to let him go by announcing Xander knows she killed Deimos.
Xander explained how he found the confession recording in Victor’s safe, tracked down Nicole, and blackmailed her into marrying him.
However, Nicole has refused to consummate the marriage and Xander was proud to proclaim he’s not a rapist, which is refreshing to know.
Xander also admitted he was the one who shot Marlena, but it was an accident because he was really trying to kill Eric. He then pulled a gun and Nicole got Xander to put it away by saying she will renegotiate the terms of their union.
When Eric left, Nicole warned Xander she’d kill him if he ever hurts Eric, and Xander actually looked sad.
Meanwhile, Marlena (Deidre Hall), Sami (Alison Sweeney), and John (Drake Hogestyn) tried to figure out why Xander would want to kill Marlena. Little do they know Eric stumbled upon the reason.
In a mystery hotel room, Brady (Eric Martsolf) convinced Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) he loved her and even made love to her. After, as Kristen slept, we heard Brady’s thoughts and they weren’t kind. He is apparently with Kristen to help bring her down.
At the police station, Sheila clashed with Lani (Sal Stowers) and went off on Abe (James Reynolds) until Lani said he’s her dad. At the Brady Pub, Abe and Valerie argued about Sheila, as well as Lani’s decision not to be with Eli (Lamon Archey).
However, Lani was clearly jealous when Eli asked Sheila to stay with him since she’d been living out of her car.
