Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) is headed back to the NBC soap during the week of June 1-5. Naturally, there are going to be some suspicions about whether Claire’s really well enough to reenter the outside world. Claire will assure Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) that she’s ready to be released from Bayview, but is that true?
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Olivia Rose Keegan opened up about Claire’s motives and a new friend she’s made at Bayview. Of course, we know from Days of Our Lives spoilers that Claire’s new pal is a fellow patient named Gwen (Emily O’Brien), who also happens to be Jake Lambert’s (Brandon Barash) ex-girlfriend. How does Gwen fit in Claire’s storyline?
“Claire and Gwen are very mischievous girls and they get along how girlfriends do,” Keegan said. “They like to gossip and talk and they’re very honest with each other. Gwen knows all about Claire’s past. She’s just looking out for Claire like a good friend would do.”
It seems like Keegan’s offering up some interesting hints here. The word “mischievous” jumps out right away and could point to some trouble later. The fact that Gwen knows about Claire’s arsonist history could be a factor, too.
There’s also the fact that Gwen’s looking out for Claire, but that may not be a good thing if Gwen’s so mischievous! Her version of looking out for Claire could mean something entirely different. Gwen’s at Bayview, so she’s clearly unstable and off her rocker in some way.
This Gwen connection may not end well for Claire depending on how all this plays out. For example, Claire might be held responsible for something Gwen does – particularly something that ties in with Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) Days wedding shocker.
As for Claire herself, Keegan insisted that her DOOL character’s motives are pure. “She’s been sitting there for a good year contemplating her mistakes and contemplating how to live with herself and be healthy once again,” Keegan said.
She added that repairing the damage with Ciara was most important and argued that Claire “definitely wants to make things right.”
Gwen will raise an eyebrow when it comes to Claire’s mission. She’ll wonder if Claire actually plans to settle a score or two on the outside, but that’s where that honesty Keegan mentioned comes into play.
Keegan pointed out that Claire’s upcoming “Cin” wedding obsession may look weird to an outsider, but it comes from a “heartfelt, loving place.”
So what can we take away from all that? It’s safe to assume Claire will genuinely want to make amends with Ciara when she’s released. That means Claire will either fall back into old habits later or get caught up in some chaos that isn’t her fault! It sounds like it’ll be the latter based on all the Gwen clues.
