The Days of our Lives recaps for July 4 – July 8, 2022, feature fireworks both literal – in recognition of Independence Day – and figurative.
Days of our Lives Recaps: Monday, July 4
Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) tried to dissuade Will Horton (Chandler Massey) of the notion that Sami Brady’s (Alison Sweeney) actual kidnapper and Abigail Deveraux DiMera’s (Marci Miller) murderer are one and the same… JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) spar over the latter’s continued devotion to Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien).
Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) and Anna Fredricks DiMera (Leann Hunley) return to Salem to support Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) in his hour of need… After several false starts, and with an assist from Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols), Kayla Brady Johnson (Mary Beth Evans) composes a pitch-perfect eulogy for Abigail.
DAYS Recaps: Tuesday, July 5
Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering), Doug Williams (Bill Hayes), and Julie Olson Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) are put out to hear from Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) that she and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) are planning on bundling up Bo Jr. and setting sail on their new yacht. The date of their departure? The following day, post-christening… Rafe catches Nancy Wesley (Patrika Darbo) wearing one of Abigail’s bracelets.
Jan Spears (Heather Lindell) relays Shawn Brady’s (Brandon Beemer) personal entry key for the SPD mainframe to Milo Harp, alias Orpheus (George DelHoyo). Christian Maddox, AKA Evan Frears (Brock Kelly), phones Jan and demands that she introduce him to his son.
DOOL Recaps: Wednesday, July 6
Despite Nancy’s attempts to cover for him, Clyde Weston (James Read) admits that he gifted her the bracelet in question. When he’s unable to name the gentlemen he relieved of the item, Rafe hauls Clyde downtown… Jan surreptitiously relieves Ciara of the key to her and Ben’s yacht, then makes for the vessel tot in hand.
Ben asks Marlena Evans Black (Deidre Hall) to be baby Bo’s godmother; she happily agrees… Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) comes a hair’s breadth from incriminating himself in Abigail’s murder case.
Days of our Lives Recaps: Thursday, July 7
Shawn takes off after Jan, but not before leaving Belle Brady (Martha Madison) what may very well be a final voicemail. Belle tracks Shawn to the docks and finds Jan standing over his unconscious body. The women tussle, Belle strikes Jan with an oar and sends her tumbling into the Salem River.
EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel) provides the elusive motive that Clyde might have to kill Abigail – he’s already threatened to harm EJ’s family should EJ finger Clyde as the one responsible for his shooting years previous. Chad balks at EJ sitting on the secret for so long… Leo fears that Clyde will rat him out at the first available opportunity.
DOOL Recaps: Friday, July 8
Leo and Gwen size one another up, each hoping to crack the other and elicit a confession to Abigail’s murder. Leo learns that Gwen was unaccounted for the night Abigail was stabbed… Baby Bo is christened; he, Ben, and Ciara embark on their world tour… Marlena tactfully warned EJ to steer clear of Belle… Belle and Shawn fail to achieve rapprochement. Instead, she returns to the DiMera manse.
