The Days of our Lives recap for Wednesday, May 29 features everyone seemingly racing against a clock. JJ and Haley hurried to get to Canada, Eve and Jack were struggling to stop them, and Will’s friends and family rushed to save his life.
Friends In Low Places
Silver spoon bad boy Rory (Kevin Riggin) was on the scene and ready to help JJ (Casey Moss) and Haley (Thia Megia) anyway he could. He made them all new IDs but there was one hitch. They need passport photos which means he needed to head to the cabin.
Bad News/Worse News
Unfortunately, Eli (Lamon Archey) was already onto Rory. He had the scammer in his sights and even brought him into the station on marijuana charges. Thankfully, Rory was able to ditch the documents. However, they fell into the wrong hands. Jack’s hands!
A Dirty Scheme
The one advantage the couple had is Commissioner Eve (Kassie DePaiva) was more concerned about Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) than the young couple. She had big plans to take down her daughter’s killer once and for all. However, her plans went off the rails when Jack (Matthew Ashford) found out Eve planned on setting Ben up.
The Truth About Claire
Hearing Eve is the new commish put Ben on high alert. He knew what it meant and that he needed a plan to protect himself.
And, he quickly realized where to start. The familiar scent of Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) nail polish set off alarm bells and he realized what was going on with Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan).
He put all the puzzle pieces together. The pile of clothes, the flammable fluid, Claire’s defensiveness. It all added up now. Claire set the fire just like she was about to set Tripp’s clothes on fire. But, when he recounted it all to Ciara, she took Claire’s side!
Speaking of Claire, she was on quite a high, sort-of making up with Tripp and then hearing about Eve’s grand plan. She finally felt hope for the first time in a long time. If everything goes the way it should she may even get her life back.
Help Us, Eve!
Meanwhile, Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John (Drake Hogestyn) began to panic when Rex’s notes did not bring up any intel that could help Will. John decided to take matters into his own hands and go to Eve for help.
