Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it Daytime Emmy winner Vincent Irizarry, who made his highly-anticipated on-screen debut as Deimos, the brother of Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston)!
In his first scenes, Victor armed with a gun confronts his brother who has gotten inside the Kiriakis mansion. As the dialog plays out, viewers learn that Deimos has been in prison for years, and that he somehow managed to work a deal for his freedom. Clearly, Victor is rattled to see his younger brother again, who he wished would have remained locked up in the slammer.
When Victor questions Deimos as to what he wants, and why he came to see him in Salem, Deimos reveals he needs a job. There is also clearly some underlying blackmail, or not yet revealed secret between the brothers from their past that is also at play here.
When Phillip (John-Paul Lavoisier) happens upon the scene, he acts stunned to learn that Victor has a brother. Deimos leaves the mansion with Victor never hoping to see him again. Meanwhile, Caroline (Peggy Mcay) tells Justin (Wally Kurth) she has had visions of something terrible happening to Victor. She also thinks it will be related to a man named “Damian”.
At the end of the episode, DAYS fan witnessed a huge double-cross as Phillip and Deimos met up at the park bench. Clearly, they are working together! It looks like they just might have a major plot to bring down Victor, once and for all.
