Days of our Lives Recaps: Monday, August 22
Gabi Hernandez DiMera’s (Camila Banus) denigration of his work spurred Dr. Wilhelm Rolf (Richard Wharton) into honoring Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) and Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) request-cum-demand that he supplants Stefan O. DiMera’s (Brandon Barash) feelings for Gabi with ones for Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin). Before Rolf can begin his work, Stefan regains consciousness!
Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) spins quite the yarn for Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering): she confronted Abigail Deveraux DiMera (Marci Miller) with the intention of tricking her into believing she’d received yet another dose of Rolf’s memory scrambling potion and when the truth outed Abigail agreed to let Gwen turn herself back into Statesville.
Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) wallows in his grief; Jennifer Rose Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain) attempts to be of some comfort… Kristen offers Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) her apologies, condolences, and a stirring pep talk, but he is unreceptive.

Under the impression that Orpheus (George DelHoyo) intends to do Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) harm, Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) and John Black (Drake Hogestyn) trail her to a meeting with a mystery client.

Steve and John quickly realize their mistake – Stephanie’s potential client is none other than Paulina Price Carver (Jackée Harry) – and take their leave. Paulina hires Steph to do the PR for Abe Carver’s (James Reynolds) campaign for Governor… Orpheus’s goons make off with Marlena and Kayla.
