Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Will Horton (Chandler Massey) is headed home for Christmas, so he’ll have a chance to catch up on everything he’s missed in Salem.
It doesn’t look like Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) will be able to make the trip home with Will, but at least we’ll have one half of “WilSon” back on canvas.
Of course, we have to wonder about the real reason for Will’s visit. Is this really just about having Will in Salem for the holidays? There’s usually some sort of larger purpose whenever a face from the past returns to town.
When Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson) came home recently, his return was about more than just catching up with family and friends. Theo played a crucial role in creating some drama for Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) and Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) to overcome. There was a story-related reason for the visit.
Could that be the case with Will, too? Days of Our Lives spoilers say Will’s going to face some difficult news eventually. Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) will share scenes with Will based on DOOL’s fall promo, which reveals some of the Christmas action happening this year.
Since Allie adores her brother and has relied on him for support in the past, there’s a good chance Allie will open up to Will about her rape experience.
Will can comfort Allie as she continues to cope with what happened in London, especially since Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) is still denying that he did anything wrong.
Could Will also help Allie get a clue about Charlie? Before Charlie ever aired, there was a leaked audition tape for a character who was a lot like him.
That character’s first meeting with Claire involved beverage spillage and hints about that Titan internship, so it was obviously the same guy. That audition also revealed that Charlie was a friend of Will’s, so that could tie in with the upcoming story.
We should note that some of the other details in that audition changed, which is often the case when new characters come on the scene.
However, the point is Days originally envisioned Charlie as someone who was connected to Will – and that could be important since Tripp clearly didn’t rape Allie. Someone else has to be Allie’s attacker, so that someone may be Charlie.
If Will mentions Charlie being in London around that time or knows some shady things about Charlie’s background, he might be able to trigger some memory for Allie. Once Allie meets Charlie and gets a few more puzzle pieces from Will, perhaps the big picture could start coming together.
Naturally, there’s also the matter of the DNA test, which shows Tripp and Henry Horton (Jayna and Kinsley Fox) share DNA. That means Allie’s assaulter is apparently someone related to Tripp – like a brother or even a fraternal twin.
Since Days hasn’t revealed much about Charlie so far, he’s a clean slate that could fit all the facts.
Whatever the case, Will’s return to Salem could get the ball rolling on some major revelations. We’ll keep you posted as other DOOL updates emerge.
