Tuesday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives was packed with plenty of storylines all with intrigue, as the series begins to kick into high gear under the new head writing regime of Josh Griffith and Dena Higley.
Of note, was a major reveal that looks to be a major setback to Haiden fans, as viewers learned that Aiden Jennings (Daniel Cosgrove) has been working for Stefano DiMera (Joe Mascolo) ever since coming to Salem! From the conversation the two men had, it looks like Stefano is holding a major secret over Aiden, while Aiden needs money from the Phoenix, and Stefano’s goal was to have Aiden marry Hope (Kristian Alfonso).
But, what does this all mean? That even though Aiden entered into this situation in cahoots with Stefano, that he doesn’t truly and deeply love Hope? We may soon find out.
Elsewhere, the Necktie Killer struck again! And as expected, poor Paige (True O’Brien) was the next victim! The set-up of this murder does not bode well for already leading suspect Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn), who was seen at Horton Town Square grabbing Paige in an effort to keep her mouth shut about the night she saw him with the first murder victim, Serena Mason (Melissa Archer). However, Rafe (Galen Gering) saw the whole confrontation, and now Paige is dead. Sadly, it was JJ (Casey Moss) who found Paige’s lifeless body in the shower in her dorm room.
And where’s Bo (Peter Reckell)? Now thanks to Patch (Stephen Nichols), everyone is beginning to question the generic notes and content within them that Bo sent to his family members of his whereabouts. After discussions with Patch, both Victor (John Aniston) and John (Drake Hogestyn) are also alerted that something is amiss. Something must have happened to Bo.
Meanwhile, after a conversation with her daughter Ciara (Lauren Boles) in which she gave her mother her blessing to marry Aiden, Hope begins to think about her passionate memories with Bo, and then her passionate moments with Aiden. Is Hope truly ready to let go of Bo? If she chooses Aiden, and then realizes Bo has been help captive, what will she do? The final moments of the episode revealed the face of Peter Reckell, who after more than a three year absence returned to the soap as Bo is in serious and dire straits. Will Patch find him before it’s too late and bring him back to Salem?
So, what did you think of yesterday’s episode of DAYS? Who do you think murdered Paige and Serena? Many are now speculating it’s Ben (Rob Scott Wilson), who has a major axe to grind with Chad. What did you think of the twist with the Aiden and Stefano connection? What is going on between these two? And, who do you think has captured and Bo and is keeping him prisoner?
