Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that several storylines will heat up as we move toward the show’s one-year time jump. This confirmed twist is happening on November 8, which is DOOL’s 54th anniversary. According to Jason47’s Days Facebook page, one character will be spending this time jump in a coma – meaning this person will miss out on at least 365 days of his or her life.
There’s no confirmation on which character that might be, but we can put some puzzle pieces together and speculate. Let’s consider a few crucial clues. For starters, we’ve got Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) and Jennifer Reeves (Melissa Reeves) in a state of bliss. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Jack will propose to Jennifer next week, so this is clearly being rushed along to set up a major fall.
We also know Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) and Abigail DiMera (Kate Mansi) are headed back to Salem, which may tie in with another hint. During the week of October 28-November 1, JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) will suffer some injuries. The show’s being hush-hush about the details, but the lack of info is pretty telling on his own. It says this is a big deal, so Days doesn’t want to give too much away yet.
Just looking at the timeline of all this, JJ is certainly an option to consider. If JJ is the mystery comatose character, he’d be injured the week before the time jump – giving JJ’s loved ones a chance to come together, react and prepare to place him in a long-term facility. JJ hasn’t been used much lately, so this is a good way to put him back in the action after the time jump. It’s also a great storytelling technique.
No matter who the comatose character is, this person’s going to have questions after waking up. He or she will grill other Salemites about the previous year, so they can bring DOOL viewers up to speed, too. It’s a brilliant strategy to make sure fans understand what happened offscreen.
We should mention that Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) is back on contract and has a huge story in the works. There’s Days buzz out there that Adrienne Kiriakis (Judi Evans) may die, so that makes her a less likely coma candidate. Again, the coma’s useful because the character can recover and help us learn what we’ve missed through the time jump. The character has to wake up or else the story’s pointless.
It’s also possible Jennifer will learn too much about Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay) plan and find herself in deep trouble. She scored Dr. Rolf’s flash drive and will grill him soon. Dr. Rolf will threaten Jenn in return, so he could end up putting Jennifer in a coma to silence her. Regardless, Days of Our Lives spoilers say the Deveraux family seems like the one that’ll be hit by this coma tragedy.
This ordeal could bring “Chabby” home and set up some interesting developments. We’ll give you updates as other Days news comes in. Stay tuned to DOOL and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news.
