Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers recap for Tuesday, September 22, reveal that Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) visited with Nicole Brady (Arianne Zucker) at Nicole and Eric Brady’s (Greg Vaughan) apartment. Allie said that she was going to talk with the judge so that Eric and Nicole would get her baby, but Nicole explained that circumstances had changed, and that Eric was going to Africa.
Allie asked if Nicole would raise the baby by herself, and Nicole said that she’d need to discuss it with Eric first, but that she’d consider it.
Meanwhile, at the DiMera mansion, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) talked with Kate DiMera (Lauren Koslow) about the situation with Allie. Kate told Sami that Allie had gone to see Nicole, and Sami fumed.
Sami insisted that she and Allie should raise Allie’s baby together in Italy, and Kate implored Sami to quit interfering in Allie’s life.
Sami said that she had to do something to keep Nicole from getting her hands on the baby, and she considered talking with Allie, but Kate didn’t think that it would help.
Sami agreed, saying that her window of opportunity was now, since she had legal custody of the baby. Sami said that she was going to take the baby to Italy before anyone could stop her. Suddenly, Allie walked in the room.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) urged Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) to go to the police and tell them that Brady stabbed him, not Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk).
Victor balked, but Brady said that he was going to confess to the stabbing whether Victor cooperated or not, and finally Victor gave in and said that he’d do it for Brady…not for Kristen.
At the Brady Pub, Belle Black (Martha Madison) had breakfast with Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) and waited for Eric to show up, since Eric had some big news for them. Roman Brady (Josh Taylor) materialized as Eric arrived to tell everyone that he was leaving for Africa tonight.
Eric explained his rationale for leaving, and how Nicole gave her blessing for him to go.
As everyone was sitting and talking about Eric’s departure, Brady called Belle, who informed Brady about Eric’s plan to leave. Brady soon joined everyone at the pub, and Brady, Belle, and Eric shared a touching goodbye.
Brady and Belle stepped aside, and Brady disclosed their new strategy in Kristen’s case – for him to confess to stabbing Victor. Belle agreed to take his confession to the DA.
Eric then said his final goodbyes to Marlena, Roman, Belle, and Brady. After a group hug, Eric left, and Marlena and Roman talked for a bit, hoping that Eric would come back soon.
At the police station, Lani Price-Grant (Sal Stowers) visited with Kristen in the interrogation room ahead of her arraignment. Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) came in and told Lani that he was upset that she didn’t come home last night.
Eli wanted to try to get past this, but Lani brushed him off coldly. After Eli left, Kristen urged Lani to forgive Eli and to try to trust him again.
Eventually, Lani went out to the squad room and asked Eli to talk. Lani and Eli took off, and Brady arrived in the interrogation room to talk with Kristen. Brady told Kristen that Belle was out trying to strike a deal with the DA, and that he was going to confess to Victor’s stabbing. Kristen was horrified.
At Lani and Eli’s apartment, Eli told Lani that he could see how upset she was with him, and that he didn’t want to lose her over what had happened with Kristen. “Is there any way you can forgive me?” Eli asked. “I don’t know, but I’d like to try,” Lani said. Eli said that was all that he could ask for.
Finally, back at Nicole and Eric’s apartment, Eric returned to find Nicole waiting for him. Nicole asked if Eric had said all of his goodbyes. Eric said, “All but one,” and he and Nicole kissed and cried as they hugged.
