Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers for Friday, October 16, tease that John Black (Drake Hogestyn) will seethe as he goes off on Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams). DOOL fans know John was livid when he got updates on Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) rape accusations.
John bolted from the hospital, showed up at Steve Johnson’s (Stephen Nichols) door and ultimately let his fist do the talking.
Tripp took quite a punch to the face, but John certainly won’t be sorry! As far as John’s concerned, Tripp deserved to get decked and a whole lot more. Days spoilers say John will spew hatred on Friday and make it clear that Tripp’s a dirtbag for raping Allie.
John will continue to fume over the horrible things Tripp did to his granddaughter – at least according to Allie.
However, Steve will stick up for Tripp and intensify John’s anger in the process. John is Steve’s buddy, but their friendship will go right out the window in this moment. Days of Our Lives spoilers say John will be appalled when he realizes Steve’s defending Tripp and believes him over Allie.
Steve will hold John back from attacking Tripp any further and will ultimately separate the two of them. Since John can’t control his rage, it’s better for him to keep his distance from Tripp.
Later, Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) will make an important suggestion – most likely to Steve. They may discuss the story detail Tripp changed and worry about what the truth is.
Although Steve is in Tripp’s corner, he was thrown when Tripp admitted that he turned away while Allie stripped down to her underwear. Tripp hadn’t mentioned Allie undressing before, so this new info left Steve uneasy.
It should leave Kayla uneasy as well, but she’ll point out that there’s one way to know for sure if Tripp’s telling the truth – and that’s a paternity test.
It would just be Tripp’s word against Allie’s if there weren’t a baby involved here. Since Allie was indeed raped by someone, this is just a matter of whether it was Tripp or somebody else.
If they get some DNA samples and run a paternity test, then Steve and Kayla can find out if Tripp is the father – which would make him Allie’s rapist.
A paternity test could also clear Tripp’s name, which is what Kayla and Steve will be hoping for. Days spoilers say Steve and Kayla will hide something from Tripp once Monday rolls around.
That could mean “Stayla” will keep their paternity test plans under wraps – just to be certain Tripp doesn’t pull anything to alter the results.
In the meantime, Tripp will spot Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) near the pub. When Tripp tries to approach Claire and tell his version of events, Charlie Dale (Mike C. Manning) will intervene. Tripp won’t think this is any of Charlie’s business, but Charlie will insist he’s making it his business.
Days spoilers state that Charlie will force Tripp to leave, so Claire will be grateful over Charlie playing the hero. DOOL viewers can also expect Charlie to comfort Claire as she grieves the loss of Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal).
A bond will start to form between them, but can Charlie really be trusted? We’ll have to wait and see, but the timing of Charlie’s arrival remains suspicious.
As for Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson), he’ll try to get Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) to feel sorry for him. At the Kiriakis mansion, Philip will talk about feeling lonely and will compliment Sarah on being a beautiful woman.
Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) will witness a tender moment and blow his top, which is exactly what Philip will be counting on.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Philip’s actions will cause Xander to spiral out of control. Xander will get a bit physical, so maybe Philip will want Xander to look like a caveman who’s unfit to run Titan.
Regardless, Philip and Xander’s war is far from over! CDL will have tons of other great Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news to read up on, so visit regularly for the latest info.
