Days of our Lives Recaps Highlight
Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) stunned Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) and the guests assembled at Eric and Nicole Walker Brady’s (Arianne Zucker) wedding reception by claiming that he slept with the woman of the hour.
Eric punched Xander in the face, and the gatecrasher was summarily shown the door. When Eric asked Nicole if the allegation was true, she tearfully admitted that it was. Eric made a hasty exit, and Nicole followed – but she made a point to publicly insinuate that rival Sami Brady DiMera (Alison Sweeney) had an adulterous secret all her own.
DAYS Recaps: Making Amends
Paulina Price (Jackée Harry) swung by the Horton abode to apologize for her recent actions, in-person, to Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes).
Afterward, she tracked down Abe Carver (James Reynolds), Lani Grant (Sal Stowers), and Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson), and revealed that she’s putting a stop to the demolition of the Horton Town Square. Lani is flabbergasted when she realizes that Abe is considering giving her aunt the benefit of the doubt.
Where Do We Go From Here?
Nicole and Eric reckoned with the former’s affair and decided that it would be best for the both of them if Eric simply returned to Africa.
Meanwhile, Chanel Dupree (Raven Bowens) confided in Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) that she and Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) shared yet another kiss, and then Allie rejected her in favor of Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams).
Later, Chanel ran into Paulina who promised that her daughter’s dreams of opening her own bakery would soon be a reality. When Allie heard the good news, she congratulated her friend, then wondered if they’d still be able to make a go of it as business partners; Chanel thinks that they can.
DAYS Recaps: The Universe Speaks

Come the day, Ciara is bombarded with bad tidings: big brother Shawn Douglas Brady (Brandon Beemer) is vehemently opposed to the union; her mother won’t be able to attend; ditto grandpa Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) and Julie and Belle Brady (Martha Madison); and her intended looses his best man.
