Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) may regret getting tangled up in a new friend’s drama. During the week of June 1-5, Claire will plead with Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) to help her score an early release from Bayview. Soon after, Claire will confide in Gwen (Emily O’Brien) – another patient that Claire’s recently befriended.
Why is Claire suddenly so desperate to get out? It’s probably not a coincidence that Claire is delivering this plea to Marlena right around the time she’s made her new friend. Gwen will probably manipulate Claire – perhaps with the intention of putting Claire on the outside to do her dirty work.
Of course, Claire wouldn’t see it like that. She’d just think Gwen was supportive and a nice gal pal. Claire certainly wouldn’t mind doing Gwen a favor or two after her release, which could further tangle Claire in Gwen’s web. That’s important since Gwen is Jake Lambert’s (Brandon Barash) ex-girlfriend.
There’s going to be some overlap in Jake’s story and Ben Weston’s (Robert Scott Wilson) story with Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal). Natually, Gabi DiMera (Camila Banus) will be caught up in all this, too.
So what’s the point of inserting Claire into the action and giving her this Gwen connection? DOOL writers may have a few reasons, but let’s focus on a couple crucial ones.
For starters, Days of Our Lives spoilers say Claire will be determined to make amends with Ciara. Once Claire’s back in Ciara’s orbit, Claire will do whatever she can to rebuild their bond.
We also know Claire will be fixated on Ben and Ciara’s nuptials, but does she really plan to destroy the wedding? Something doesn’t feel right about that under the circumstances.
It’s true that Days of Our Lives writers often repeat themes and plots, but Claire genuinely wanted to get better when she was shipped off to Bayview. If Claire hasn’t changed at all, what’s she been doing in there all this time?
Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) gave Ben the green light on his release and he was OK, so her approval could mean Claire’s truly well, too.
Of course, Claire could easily fall back into old devious patterns – especially with Gwen as a bad influence. Even so, all this almost seems like a classic case of misdirection.
Maggie Kiriakis (Suzanne Rogers) looked guilty because she was passed out in a crashed car with a booze bottle, but she wasn’t the culprit that night.
Likewise, maybe Days only wants fans to think Claire’s up to no good. This wedding fixation could be more like a setup. It’s clear that something terrible will go down at the big event, so a fire seems like the logical way to go.
Since DOOL’s establishing this link between Claire and crazy Gwen, could Claire get blamed for Gwen’s wedding stunt?
Since there’s a good chance Jake Lambert (Brandon Barash) will end up being Ben’s best man, it’s easy to imagine Gwen setting fire to the wedding venue. Based on Jake’s description of Gwen and the fact that she’s been in Bayview, Gwen is an insane woman who’ll do insane things!
