On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, in quite an array of images from the disturbing – bugs, cats, explosions – interpersed with images of Belle (Martha Madison), Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) did the unthinkable and brainwashed his brother, Chad (Billy Flynn)!
After hijacking Chad’s hypnosis therapy session with Marlena (Deidre Hall), he gives his ‘bro’ a freakish therapy session of his own, strapping him to a chair, and strapping his head down. Next, Chad is forced to watch a screen and fed images to literally rip Abigail (Kate Mansi) out of Chad’s heart, and seemingly replace it with Belle’s! In a heartbreaking moment, a tear streams down Chad’s face.
All of this is Andre’s attempt to have Chad go after Belle to retrieve the stolen DiMera fortune! And all of this, just as Abby and Chad had a moment of coming together after their long-suffering months of terror due to serial killer Ben (Rob Scott Wilson). But it looks like with any super couple in the making, happiness is fleeting! Meanwhile, Stefano (Joe Mascolo) was to be pleased when he happened upon the scene of Andre brainwashing Chad! He admonished Andre for his actions.
Now comes the big questions: Will Chad sleep with Belle for the DiMera fortune? Can he snap out of it? Is Andre’s new reign of terror going to be even farther reaching?
Let us know: Were you disturbed by the visions that Chad was enduring while being brainwashed? What do you think will happen next? Comment below!
