On today’s Days of our Lives, Stefan DiMera and Gabi seem to buy what EJ and Nicole were selling, hook, line, and sinker.
Days of our Lives Recap Highlights
In addition, Paulina (Jackée Harry) hooted and hollered until she got some satisfaction from the Salem Police Department, Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) looked forward to their future, and Chanel (Raven Bowens) and Talia (Aketra Sevillian) leveled with one another. Now, let’s dig a little deeper into what exactly happened.
Stean DiMera And Gabi Plan To Make Merry
At the DiMera manse, Stefan (Brandon Barash) came upon EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) plotting, but they insisted it was all for his benefit. Make that his and Gabi’s (Camila Banus) benefit.
Nicole explained that she’d just come from booking the couple a room at the Salem Inn — using an assumed name and securing them access to a back entrance to the establishment, natch! — and doing it up all romantic-like. Stefan found it hard to believe that Nicole and EJ were going to such great lengths to do him a solid…but believe he did.

Meanwhile, Gabi (Camila Banus) returned home to a most romantic sight. Dim lighting, candles, a table set for two, champagne on ice. The one rub? It was Li (Remington Hoffman) who prepared it all and Li who expected to share in it.
Li insisted that it was all in aid of her triumphant dealings with Saxton, and Gabi was eventually won around. She even went as far as to admit that she was grateful for Li getting her in the room — even if she fought it all the way since it was his idea.
The revelry was interrupted by a knock at the door. It was Nicole, ostensibly there to give Gabi the hard sell about turning down whatever Saxton’s was offering her and coming onboard Basic Black. Li balked. Gabi too. Nicole was clearly up to something.
Suddenly, Gabi received a text from Stefan — sent via a burner phone provided to him by EJ — telling her to go with Nicole. Gabi complied, much to Li’s chagrin.
At the hotel, Stefan and Gabi happily fell into one another’s arms, and Nicole — whom Gabi had termed “the answer to our prayers” took her leave.
Opposite that, EJ darkened Li’s door and delivered a proverbial gut punch. “You’ve been set up, old boy. Stefan and Gabi are together as we speak…care to do something about it?”
DAYS Recap: Seek And Destroy
At the local cop shop, Rafe (Galen Gering) gifted Jada (Elia Cantu) a sheet full of real estate listings — for Talia. He’d listened to, and heard, Jada when she said that being forced to share a bed with her little sister was doing her back in, and this was his way of rendering assistance. Jada couldn’t have been more thankful.
Seconds later, the two were joined by a ranting and raving Paulina Price, who admonished them for “standing around, shooting the breeze” and demanded to know why they weren’t out “getting Sloan Petersen off the streets?!”
The officers’ confusion — and Shawn Brady’s (Brandon Beemer) absence — necessitated Paulina relaying the trashing of her office and her belief that it was Sloan who committed the foul deed.
Her motive? Anger at her civil case being tossed out. Paulina’s proof? The threats that Sloan publicly leveled against her and Chanel — threats that Jada’s own sister was privy to.
Elsewhere, the Brady Pub, to be exact, Sloan managed to forgo thoughts of revenging herself against, and railing about Paulina and Chanel by getting down to other business, namely finding Eric a space for his theoretical gallery.
After managing to narrow it down to two, the couple — yes, couple. Sloan finally copped to caring for/about him — made plans to retire to her abode and not order takeout. Wink. Wink.
But before they could depart, Jada and Rafe arrived and revealed that they wanted to speak with Sloan downtown.
DOOL Recap: Warning Shots
Talia had questions — well, one question: “That lawyer. Why does she hate you so much?” — and Chanel had answers. And one long, complicated, blood-drenched story to tell.
Upon being apprised of the details, Talia was firmly “Team Chanel.” She was also spurred into admitting a truth of her own. She’s not actually a qualified baker. She’s a doctor. A “doctor” doctor. M.D. not Ph.D.
Though taken aback by the subterfuge employed by her new employee, Chanel had no intention of letting her new star helper get away.
Enter Paulina to caution her daughter, “If you didn’t take Sloan’s threat seriously this morning, you better start doing it now. That crazy woman, she’s still trying to get us, and now she doesn’t care what the law says. We have to be ready for anything!”
