Tripp’s contemplates ditching his plot to destroy Kayla by framing her for the wrongful death of her patient and coming clean about setting her up on Days of Our Lives (DOOL).
“Tripp has been working with Kayla, day in and day out, at the hospital,” explains Lucas Adams (Tripp). “He sees everything she does for her patients.
He sees how nice and genuine she is with everyone. Seeing that is conflicting for him. He wonders how she could be a murderer when she’s so sweet and caring to everyone.”
Seeds of Doubt
It plants seeds of doubt in his head about Jade’s (Gabrielle Haugh) claim that Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) murdered his mother.
“I think Tripp has always kind of doubted that a little bit just because he’s one of those people who questions everything around him,” says Adams. “But the idea hasn’t completely been removed from his mind.”
Couple that with how kind and encouraging Steve (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla have been since they brought Tripp to Salem and welcomed him into their family, and it’s left Tripp questioning his revenge plot.
“Steve and Kayla seem like great people,” notes Adams. “He wonders how they could be lying to him about who killed his mom. There’s a lot of stuff going on in his mind, and he’s conflicted.”
Lies, Lies, Lies
Tripp seriously considers coming clean about everything. “At this point in time, Tripp is tired of all the lies,” contends Adams. “Not just that he’s hearing a bunch of lies, but also the lies that he’s telling himself and the people who supposedly love him. He’s about to break. He doesn’t know what to do. He starts to think that all he can do now is maybe come clean.
“He also wonders if he should come clean, because maybe Kayla did [kill his mom],” continues Adams. “Then, she’ll get away with it and not pay for what she did. It’s a big ordeal with Tripp.”
Yet, he doesn’t like the person he’s become or the methods he’s resorted to.
“He’s being manipulated by Jade, but he’s not able to see that,” explains Adams. “All he sees is a friend… someone being a friend to him.
“Tripp is blinded by that fact. Jade has completely pulled the wool over his eyes. Tripp’s very confused about what to do in his life right now.”
And Jade makes it even more confusing, when she suggests that Tripp ditch his plot to get even with Kayla.
“That really throws him for a loop,” asserts Adams. “She’s the one who’s been so adamant about this. She’s the one who’s been saying that Kayla, for sure, [killed Ava].
“Then, to all of a sudden say that maybe Tripp shouldn’t [get even with her]… It’s like a red flag. He’s like, ‘Hang on a second. You were so sure about this five seconds ago. Why are you all of a sudden doubting it now?’”
Ultimately, Tripp decides to forge ahead with his plot against Kayla. “Tripp is tired of everything,” says Adams. “He kind of snaps. He doesn’t know what to, so he just …continue reading on the next page —>
