Days of our Lives Recap: Xander Prepares To Kill Sami and Lucas

Days of our Lives Recap for May 18, 2021

The Days of our Lives recap for Tuesday, May 18, 2021, features Xander deciding it’s a criminal’s life for him, Nicole making a clean breast of it, and Chanel and Tripp playing nice.

Days of our Lives Recap Highlight

Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) have had sex yet again, but neither is in the mood to bask in the afterglow. He’s incredibly worried about his grievously injured mother; she’s upset at herself for being a low-down dirty adulterous…again…and E.J. isn’t even the first husband she’s cheated on!

So, while the bickering exes attempted to find their way out of wine cellar cum dungeon, Kirsten (Stacy Haiduk) was busying herself with convincing Xander (Paul Telfer) to do her a teensy-weensy solid. Would her former partner-in-crime, pretty please, if it’s not too terribly inconvenient, snuff out all the captives that she’s accumulated?

Absolutely not, said Xander. But then a mean ole man from the hotel told him he’d have to leave if he didn’t pay his room tab…and Kristen has a bag full of thousand dollar bills. She promised Xander that he could have the lot – after he took care of business.

Girl Talk

After narrowly avoiding becoming yet another one of Kristen’s marked-for-death hostages, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) hurried over to Ava’s (Tamara Braun) and told her all about the adultery she committed the night before.

Since Ava’s not one to judge – and not that she’d have any room to anyway – she assuaged Nicole’s guilt, and promised that the secret would stay between them…and not even Rafe (Galen Gering) could pry the truth from her. Too bad he walked in and heard there’s a secret afoot!


Chanel (Precious Way) tracked Allie (Lindsay Arnold) down in hopes of clearing up a misunderstanding that may be lingering between them. She wound up interrupting yet another intimate moment between Allie and Tripp (Lucas Adams), but by the time it was all said and done, it seemed like the trio was in a good place.

Though, that’s not to say things between the three won’t be just a wittle bit awkward. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
