Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Roman (Josh Taylor) will be the bearer of bad news. That seems to be one of Roman’s main jobs lately. Now that he’s Salem’s favorite bartender, he typically just offers advice and informs other characters of trouble.
Roman was the one who told Theresa (Jen Lilley) that Kimberly’s (Patsy Pease) cancer had returned. Next, it’ll be Kayla’s (Mary Beth Evans) turn to get some terrible updates. Fortunately, no one else’s life will be on the line. Kayla has enough on her plate trying to save Marlena (Deidre Hall), so that’s good to hear.
However, Kayla will still have to face a devastating blow. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Steve will be arrested for espionage, so that may be what Roman divulges. The drama will happen off screen as a quick way to wrap up Steve’s DOOL stint. Nichols couldn’t reach an agreement with the show during negotiations, so Days decided to send Steve to prison. His last airdate will be August 31.
This is actually a decent exit when you consider the other options. No one wants Steve dead, but Days can’t have him abandon Kayla again either. Steve wouldn’t to that to “Sweetness” and Tripp (Lucas Adams). The whole “missing hero lands in captivity” trope has been overdone as well, so that plan was out.
Steve won’t actually want to leave his family, so putting him in the slammer takes him off Days while preserving his character. It also gives Kayla some gripping material since she’ll have not one, but two loved ones behind bars. Kayla had a hard time dealing with Joey’s (James Lastovic) incarceration. Now she’ll have to cope with visiting Steve at the state pen, too.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Kayla will struggle in the coming months. She’ll have to lean on her other family members and friends for support. Of course, Kayla could face more Stefan (Tyler Christopher) issues as well. He could still turn off Steve’s bionic eye, so Kayla will need leverage to handle him. Maybe that’ll provide a distraction as she works through her sorrow over losing Steve.
It sounds like Kayla will have plenty to do, even without Steve around. Nevertheless, many Days viewers are hoping Nichols makes a comeback down the road. Will the show work something out with the popular star? We’ll keep you posted as other DOOL details emerge.
