Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) will grow even more concerned about Joey (James Lastovic) on this week’s new DOOL episodes – August 14 through August 18. Now that Tripp (Lucas Adams) knows the truth, Joey feels guiltier than ever. He’s having a hard time coping with the fact that he killed Ava (Tamara Braun).
Kayla thinks it’s best to stick together and manage this as a family. However, Steve (Stephen Nichols) can tell that their boy is beyond help. Joey is living in a personal prison right now, so confessing might be his best bet. If he atones for murdering Ava, perhaps Joey could learn how to handle his remorse.
Of course, that means Joey’s personal prison would become a physical one. Coming clean to the cops could mean a lengthy stint at the state pen. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Kayla will once again try to stop Joey’s confession. She’ll insist that he’s throwing his life away for no reason.
Ava pushed Joey to the edge and the soap world is arguably a better place without her in it. She was a dangerous woman who posed a risk to the whole Johnson clan. Nevertheless, Joey can’t take the pain of knowing he caused Ava’s death. He robbed Tripp of a chance to meet his mom, too.
DOOL spoilers say Steve will suspect that his son’s plan is moving forward. He’ll decide to talk to Roman (Josh Taylor) about Joey’s intentions. After Joey killed Ava, Roman felt like something didn’t add up. The ISA eventually stepped in and helped Steve craft a cover story. It made this Days dilemma go away, but Roman still caught on. He knows Joey is actually to blame for this murder.
Steve will admit that Joey is crumbling under the weight of his actions. Roman will probably mention his recent chat with the teen. He could tell that Joey was truly distraught. Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that they’ll debate whether this is the right move. Roman and Steve will likely agree that there’s just no other way to ease this burden.
It seems Joey will reach that conclusion as well. Days spoilers reveal that James Lastovic will depart the role by the end of August. Will Joey make a confession and begin a life behind bars? It certainly looks like the storyline is headed in that direction. We’ll give you updates as other news comes in.
