First off, an important announcement: Days of our Lives will be preempted on Monday, September 7th, in honor of the Labor Day holiday. So, you'll have to partake of either TiVo'd episodes, U.S. Open highlights, or Jerry Lewis in order to tide you over until Tuesday. At least this upcoming (abbreviated though it may be) week in Salem looks to be verrrrry interesting ... read on for details!
Gah! Rafe is [THISCLOSE] to figuring out that whole "Nicole stole Sami's real baby" thing! And on that tip, he finds out this week that Nicole actually went to the convent -- you know, the one Sami was hiding in -- to visit baby Grace, aka Mia's biological daughter. Now why would she want to secretly visit someone else's baby-who-isn't-really-theirs, hmmm? C'mon Rafe, you can figure it out!
Meanwhile, how surprised were you when it turned out that VICTOR has something to do with the drug-dealing operation that Arianna's a (big) part of? Trafficking seems a LOT more like a DiMera domain, are we right? Anyhoo, Victor decides to tell Arianna that he knows her big secret. Will he spill it to all and sundry? Time will tell.
Victor's son Bo is busy trying to keep his head above water, re: his marriage to Hope. That whole kidnapping took a lot out of them -- and now it looks like Justin has some thoughts as to what Bo did (and didn't) do whilst handling the whole ordeal. The Kiriakis Kousins have words about it, natch.
We wonder if this all will come into play when Carly Manning returns to Salem next month ... Magic 8 Ball says "Signs point to yes"!
All this, PLUS: Melanie has a decidedly painful encounter with Nathan. And they were getting along so well there for a while ...
What are you most looking forward to next week?
