Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers for the week of December 21-25 tease that Christmas celebrations will be in full swing, but one guest at the Kiriakis mansion will be an unwelcome one.
Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) will clear up the recent confusion with Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) and invite her to the family gathering, so Maggie Kiriakis (Suzanne Rogers) and Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) won’t be happy.
While Bonnie shakes up the Kiriakis clan’s Christmas, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) will imagine an alternate reality. In the visiting area of Statesville, Kristen will open Brady’s gift and fantasize about the perfect holiday back home with him.
That’ll bring some fun scenes involving Maggie as the maid and Victor as the cranky butler. Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) will even be the gardener in this fantasy where Kristen is the queen of the Kirikis castle!
Back in the real soap world, Xander will do his best to make Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) jealous. Once Xander shows up to the Kiriakis party with Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), he’ll definitely get Philip’s attention.
Chloe won’t actually be interested in Xander, so this will just be part of a risky game.
Other Days of Our Lives spoilers say Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) will be unnerved when he meets Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold). This obviously isn’t the first time they’ve crossed paths, though it doesn’t look like Allie will suspect anything unusual at first.
Charlie, on the other hand, will struggle to hide his panic as Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) introduces him to her cousin – and his rape victim.
However, it seems Allie will remain happy for Claire since she’ll push her to surprise Charlie soon after. As for Nicole Brady (Arianne Zucker), she’ll spend Christmas with someone surprising.
Since Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) will also be alone for the holidays, Nicole and Rafe will keep each other company this year. There’ll definitely be some dangerous bonding going on!
In the meantime, Lani Price-Grant (Sal Stowers) will go into labor. There’ll be some tough moments for Lani, especially if she tries to push Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) away.
Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams) will return to see her new grandbabies and support Eli, who’ll also get some help from Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Doug Williams (Bill Hayes).
Lani will give birth to a baby boy and a baby girl, so it won’t be long until she’s counting her blessings with Eli instead of fighting. It looks like Eli and Lani will manage to put their recent conflict to rest.
As for Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford), he’ll touch Jennifer Deveraux’s (Cady McClain) heart with a special present and make some progress in his quest for reconciliation.
Days fans will also see Will Horton (Chandler Massey) back in town for a visit. Allie will end up making an emotional phone call to Sami Brady DiMera (Alison Sweeney) as well – one that includes a tearful confession.
It sounds like Allie will come clean about her assault and how Henry Horton (Jayna and Kinsley Fox) was really conceived.
Look for Roman Brady (Josh Taylor) to hold Henry and connect with his great-grandson in the week ahead. There’ll also be a wedding do-over after Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer) proposes to Belle Black (Martha Madison).
Belle and Shawn will have their impromptu nuptials and end the night as a married couple, so that’ll be something to celebrate this year.
Over with Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson), he’ll be touched once he’s welcomed to the Horton family with an ornament. It looks like it’ll be one Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) left behind for Ben, though Claire will be the one who passes it along.
Later, Ben will envision Ciara as he puts that ornament on the Christmas tree, so DOOL fans can expect some bittersweet moments.
At the hospital, Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) will make an appearance as “Patchy Claus” – and he’ll share a sweet kiss with Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) before Christmas is over. As for Joey Johnson (James Lastovic), he’ll manage to nail down what his future’s going to look like.
Finally, Days of Our Lives spoilers say Steve will work on a new theory – one that could help prove Tripp Dalton’s (Lucas Adams) innocence! We’ll fill you in as other news and updates become available.
DOOL viewers will see plenty of great holiday scenes during the week of December 21-25, so stay tuned. CDL’s your one-stop source for fantastic Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news, so stop by frequently.
