Days of our Lives Recap Highlights
In addition, Chloe called a moratorium on her relationship with Xander, EJ sicced yet another assassin on his enemies, and Rex found himself poised to play fall guy. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into what happened.
Days of our Lives Recap: Up In (Old) Smokey
At Edmund’s (Adam Caine), Ava (Tamara Braun) and Harris (Steve Burton) asked Susan (Stacy Haiduk) to tap into her magic mumbo jumbo and make contact with someone who could help them out of their dire straits.
Try as she might, Susan couldn’t oblige. But, she did get an image of her ex holding a gun on Ava’s “baby boy.” And also Rafe (Galen Gering), but who cares about Rafe?
Harris decided to put his muscles to good use by trying to break his chains Sampson style, and Susan gave an assist via prayer — because prayer is always the answer.
Sure enough, as soon as Susan — and Ava, who’d been roped into the ridiculousness — began requesting divine intervention, the weakest link in the chain broke and Harris was freed.
The former Navy Seal sprung into immediate action and disarmed the British baddie. Soon Tripp (Lucas Adams) and Ava were reunited, and Rafe was marveling at Susan and the story about her being foisted upon Edmund by persons unknown.
DAYS Recap: The Night Before
Back in Salem, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), Susan’s so-called “good boy,” tasked a goon named Bronson with picking up where Joyce left off in regard to Ava and Xander (Paul Telfer). In regard to the latter, EJ instructed his man to frame Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) for the crime.
Speaking of Rex, he spent his evening in Philip’s (John-Paul Lavoisier) company, bemoaning Xander’s plan to fight for custody of Victoria Margaret, listening with rapt attention as Philip relayed Chloe’s (Nadia Bjorlin) confession to still having feelings for him, and laughing over the fact that that the women he and Philip love have to choose between either them or Xander.
Opposite, Xander implored Chloe to stand by his side while he fought for custody of his daughter, and she hit him with the (metaphorical) gut punch that was her lingering love for Philip. After that declaration, Xander wondered where they could possibly go next, and Chloe surprised him with her decision to move out early the next morning.
DOOL Recap: A New Day Dawns
The next day, EJ was stunned by the back-to-back-to-back visits of Ava, Harris, and his adoring mother while his hired gun lured Rex to Xander’s apartment and gained entry himself while posing as a man from the gas company.
