The Days of our Lives spoilers for May 17-21, 2021, tease Ben and Claire falling prey to an old soap trope, Xander tempted to do evil, and so much more.
Days of our Lives Spoilers Highlight
Ben (Robert Scott Wilson) receives divorce papers from Ciara (Victoria Konefal), and in response, the broken man heads for the one place still sacred in his and Ciara’s love story – the much talked about cabin. The cabin where a fractured leg healed and a relationship began.
He’s eventually joined by Claire (Isabel Durant), who has to once again step up to the plate and talked him out of enacting yet another fool-hardy plan; this time, Ben wants to hop on a plane to South Africa and confront Ciara about her actions.
After calming Ben’s frenzy, Claire offers her shoulder for him to cry on…and her lips to kiss! Of course, the pair immediately decide the smooch is of no consequence, and they decide to never speak of it again.
Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) asks for Xander’s (Paul Telfer) help in disposing of Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), and she promises to make the job very much worth his while.
So, with a gun in hand, Xander descends into the DiMera wine cellar and readies himself to shoot Sami and Lucas dead. But then Sami offers to double whatever Kristen’s starting offer was…and an intrigued Xander debates the merits of accepting the higher bid.
