The DAYS recap for Thursday, December 29, 2022, features a soap opera staple: inconvenient truths being delivered to a bride on her wedding day.
DAYS Recap Highlights
In this episode, Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) are deemed man and wife minutes before her memories of a (not so) long ago betrayal bubbled up to the surface. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into what exactly happened.
Days of our Lives Recap: Problems, Problems, Problems
The hits just kept coming for Gabi. Her pre-wedding jitters were getting the better of her, her daughter suddenly started to projectile vomit, and the prospect of finding a babysitter seemed slim to none. Luckily, Wendy Shin (Victoria Grace) was able to calm her soon-to-be-Hermana-in-law. Sonny Kiriakis (Zach Tinker) was on hand to watch over his stepdaughter. Crises adverted…but the drama had only just begun.
DOOL Recap: The Heat Is On
Having traded frigid Salem for sultry Miami, Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) and Stefan O. DiMera (Brandon Barash) got down to the business of reflecting on their exes — can you say, romance? That’s what happens when you continue to follow their social media post-breakup. Chloe got an eyeful of her ex and his psycho baby mama in a selfie!
Needless to say, that showed Chloe’s still having a hard time accepting Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) tossing her away like yesterday’s leftovers, and for she-devil Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) no less, while Stefan can do no more than thank his lucky stars that he and Gabi broke up when they did — that woman is all kinds of awful and he hates her.
After the commiseration came a sumptuous dinner for two, then a passionate, clothes-doffing clinch — can you say, romance?
DAYS Recap: Getting The Act Together
All Brady wanted to do was arrange it so that his stepbrother could kidnap his precious baby girl, and as per usual, Kristen very nearly ruined everything. Thankfully Brady was able to convince her to get a move on and dress for the wedding that they’re attending…together…yuck!
Across town, Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) smelled a rat when he answered Li’s phone and realized that Dr. Wilhelm Rolf (Richard Wharton) was on the other end but was distracted by Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu) who cleans up real nice, much to Rafe’s delight.
Elsewhere, EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel) wasn’t in the least bit pleased to hear that Johnny DiMera (Carson Boatman) planned to attend Li and Gabi’s nuptials as Wendy’s date and, of course, inferred that the young’uns planned to out him as a conspirator in Stefan’s brainwashing. Johnny denied the charges, and Nicole Walker’s Soon-To-No-Longer-Be-Hernandez’s (Arianne Zucker) arrival kept the conversation from progressing any further.
DOOL Recap: Total Recall
Aside from Wendy speaking out at the most inopportune of moments — phew! — she just wanted to say how happy she was that her brother and “Hermana” were happy — Li and Gabi’s wedding proceeded without a hitch. The reception? That’s another story.
A few choice words triggered Gabi’s recollection of being used as a guinea pig by Dr. Rolf after she’d learned all about his efforts to condition Stefan to hate her. What’s more, Gabi remembers being told that Kristen was in on the subterfuge — nobody but nobody is surprised — but that it was Li who first made the suggestion. Dun, dun, dun!
