Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Charlie Dale’s (Mike Manning) father may go after revenge and his grandson Henry Horton (Jayna and Kinsley Fox). Will Jimmy Giacomo become Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) new nightmare?
Fans will recall that Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) got pregnant by Jimmy, who had ties to her father’s mob organization. Since Ava had no interest in Charlie after she gave birth, Jimmy wound up raising Charlie alone in Philadelphia.
Although Ava had some visits with her son, she never connected with Charlie and didn’t give him the love he needed. That most likely contributed to the monster Charlie turned into, but we can’t put all the blame on Ava.
Charlie made his own choices and ultimately suffered the fatal consequences when Jan Spears (Heather Lindell) murdered him.
Once Charlie was dead, it naturally brought some relief to Allie. Charlie’s assault led to Henry’s conception – and Charlie had been dropping hints about potentially going after his son before his untimely demise.
Now it could be Jimmy’s turn to show up in town looking for answers, vengeance and access to Charlie’s child.
Days spoilers say Richard Steinmetz is set to make his debut in the not-too-distant future. Although Steinmetz’s role hasn’t been revealed yet, it’s worth noting that he played Joe Scully Jr. on General Hospital.
Joe was part of a mob family, so it’s possible former GH Head Writer and current Days Head Writer Ron Carlivati thought of him for the part of Charlie’s mob-connected father.
Carlivati has been known to suggest former General Hospital cast members for roles on DOOL, so it’s a reasonable possibility.
Lindsay Arnold and Raven Bowens (Chanel Dupree) also teased some stories the show has cooking up. They were featured on a recent episode of Dishin’ Days, so let’s consider their clues and look at the potential meaning behind them.
Arnold suggested there’d be a sense of “déjà vu” – and Bowens followed up with hints about it being like Jerry Springer and getting messy.
Of course, that could refer to Allie and Chanel’s romance, which is surely going to happen despite Allie’s current relationship with Tripp Johnson (Lucas Adams).
However, there’s also a chance Allie will be haunted by Charlie though his father. With the Vitali family backing him up, Jimmy could start some custody trouble.
Perhaps Jimmy could also blame Allie for Charlie’s death on some level. The assault was the start of Charlie’s life falling apart and at least one of Jan’s reasons for firing the deadly bullet.
It’s certainly not Allie’s fault that Charlie was a rapist, but Jimmy might be a dirtbag who sides with his dead son. The messy Jerry Springer stuff might fit if Jimmy tries to have Allie declared an unfit mother or something along those lines.
There’d be tons of dramatic potential if Charlie’s dad showed up in Salem, so let’s hope it happens!
Jimmy Giacomo could become a new DOOL villain for the show to play around with – and this could pull Ava, Tripp and others into the mayhem along with Allie.
