The Days of our Lives recaps for April 5-9, 2021, features a dark secret outed, two murder suspects cleared, and former spouses recreating their glory days.

Days of our Lives Recaps Highlight

After much prodding, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) agreed to undergo hypnosis with Marlena (Deidre Hall). But rather than stoke Ciara’s memories of her life with Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), the session resulted in her remembering the fire that nearly claimed her life.

Claire (Isabel Durant) eventually confessed to setting not only the initial blaze but also attempting to finish the jobs months later. In the aftermath of the revelations, Ciara insisted that she would never again attempt to relive her past.

Elimination Round

Thanks in large part to Gabi’s (Camila Banus) casually hurled accusations, Ava (Tamara Braun) came clean to Rafe (Galen Gering) about her and Tripp’s (Lucas Adams) whereabouts the night that Charlie (Mike Manning) died.

Mother and son both denied actually firing the fatal shot that ended the disreputable rogue’s life, and the entire exercise resulted in Rafe realizing that he was firmly back at square on. Charlie’s killer is still out there.

Just Like Old Times

Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) paid Sami (Alison Sweeney) a late-night visit and wound up serving as his exes sounding board. In the aftermath of lamenting her new normal with E.J., Sami pulled Lucas in for a series of reciprocated kisses.

Misery Loves Company

Xander (Paul Telfer) continued to drown his sorrows and earn rebukes from restaurant owners. He made the acquaintance of Chanel Dupree (Precious Way), who quickly acquainted herself with the contents of her date’s casually shared wallet.

Baby Blues

At Jack’s (Matthew Ashford) urging, Abigail (Marci Miller) agreed to a sit down with her supposedly contrite sister and consider putting the kibosh on their long-standing rivalry.

But before she’d entertain the notion of a truce, Abby insisted that Gwen (Emily O’Brien) look her in the face and swear that Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) death had been an accident.

Instead of honoring the request, Gwen proceeded to vomit all over Abby’s lower half. Later, Gwen confided in Jack that the incident was most likely due to the fact that she’s pregnant!

A Deal With The Devil

Jan Spears (Heather Lindell) awoke from her coma and began negotiating a quid-pro-quo arrangement with Belle (Martha Madison). She’ll forego pressing attempted murder charges against John (Drake Hogestyn), but Belle must abandon her plans to have Jan arrested for kidnapping her.

John insisted that he be held accountable for his actions – but Belle disregarded his stance, and agreed Jan’s terms. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
