Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers recap for Tuesday, June 15, reveals that Nicole Brady (Arianne Zucker) punched Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) while Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) spotted Sami Brady DiMera (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) kissing. EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel) also planned a power grab, so here’s what went down on Tuesday’s DOOL episode.
At Basic Black, Nicole claimed she was trying to hustle Xander out so she could talk to Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) in private about hiring him again. Nicole made another pitch, but Brady fired back that Nicole had amnesia about all the horrible things Xander had done.
Brady wondered how Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) would feel if he knew Xander was working there.
While Xander was out of the room, Brady asked if Nicole was trying to get back at Eric for extending his time away. He suggested that bringing “that animal” to work at Basic Black might be what finally brought Eric home!
In the end, Brady told Xander that he was apparently hired and took off to get some air. Xander talked seductively to Nicole moments later and earned himself a punch to the gut. Nicole promised one six inches lower if he dared to touch her again.
At the DiMera mansion on Tuesday’s Days episode, Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) greeted EJ before they drank together and discussed the family business.
EJ said he wasn’t staying in Salem long, but Tony hoped EJ might stick around and see if he approved of the direction DiMera Enterprises was headed in.
EJ took that to mean Tony didn’t approve, so Tony argued that Jake DiMera (Brandon Barash) the garage mechanic wasn’t cut out to run the company. The brothers also discussed Chad DiMera’s (Billy Flynn) marriage drama before EJ reflected on his own.
EJ talked about how he’d taken his anger out on Sami and nearly extinguished her fire, but he had apologized and come to take her home.
Tony thought that like a true DiMera, EJ was doing whatever it took to get what he wanted. EJ wondered why Tony didn’t just take over as CEO himself, but Tony insisted Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) was happier with him just helping out here and there.
After EJ suggested Jake could destroy Stefano DiMera’s (Joseph Mascolo) legacy, Tony suggested EJ should be the one to take over.
At the townhouse, Lucas was outraged over Sami reuniting with EJ after the way she’d been treated. Lucas talked about holding Sami in his arms when she was crying and wondered what kind of life Sami would really be going back to.
Sami insisted this was her decision and urged Lucas to accept it, but he said there was “no way in hell.”
When it all hit the fan as Lucas knew it would, he suggested Sami would know where to find him. Sami thanked Lucas for everything before Lucas pulled her into a passionate kiss – and Marlena walked in just in time to witness the lip lock.
Marlena cleared her throat to alert Lucas and Sami to her presence, so they pulled apart before Sami said they were just saying goodbye. After Lucas left, Sami admitted EJ was back in town to take her home.
Sami couldn’t say no to EJ’s offer to repair their marriage, but Marlena thought it seemed like an emotional ultimatum that made it harder to work things out.
Meanwhile, Gabi Hernandez DiMera (Camila Banus) was furious when Jake admitted he couldn’t go through with dumping Kate Roberts DiMera (Lauren Koslow).
Gabi felt like if Jake wanted to be with his “blind geriatric girlfriend” so much, then she’d be seeing him! Jake insisted Gabi was the one he wanted and pulled her into a kiss that led to lovemaking.
Afterward, Jake told Gabi that to tell a woman who just went blind that he was leaving her would be kicking her when she was down. He knew it was a lot to ask, but he hoped Gabi could wait – just until he could let Kate down easy.
Gabi wasn’t happy about it, but she understood that Jake wanted to do the right thing. She decided they could at least see each other on the side, but Jake thought that might be a problem.
After Jake pointed out Chad wouldn’t approve, Gabi wondered why it mattered what Chad thought. Even so, Jake felt he had to do the right thing or else he was the bum everyone expected him to be.
At the hospital, Chad called Kate out for lying and pointed out there was no need for the mirror she was holding if she couldn’t see. Kate relented and admitted she wasn’t blind, so Chad said he grew suspicious when he found out Kate forgave Jake. He knew something fishy was going on.
What Chad didn’t understand was why Kate would want Jake back, but Kate argued that she didn’t. She just wanted to punish Jake “and his little dog, too.” Chad wondered how long Kate would keep this up, so she suggested she’d do it for as long as it was fun.
Kate confessed to blackmailing her doctor and argued that left Chad as her big problem. She asked if Chad was going to out her or not.
Chad assured Kate that he was a DiMera and didn’t rat out his friends. He told Kate she could have her fun, but she didn’t quite trust him. Kate needed Chad to look her in the eyes and shake on it, so he did what she asked and promised not to say a word.
Back at the townhouse on Tuesday’s Days episode, Marlena was still trying to process what she walked in on between Sami and Lucas.
Sami once again argued they were just saying goodbye, but Marlena had a question for her. “Did you agree to go to Italy to be with EJ or to get away from Lucas?” Marlena asked.
Sami seemed offended, but Marlena suggested maybe her daughter wanted to let things cool down a little bit. She brought up the kiss she saw and pushed for answers about Kristen DiMera’s (Stacy Haiduk) dirt, but EJ’s knock on the door interrupted them.
Sami insisted that was her husband – the man she was going home with. Marlena assured Sami that she understood and greeted EJ once he entered.
When Marlena acknowledged that EJ was only in town for a brief visit, EJ admitted that plans had changed. He told Sami they were on their way home – but not to Italy. Sami was stunned to learn EJ wanted to stay there in Salem.
At the DiMera mansion again, Tony talked to Stefano’s portrait and thought they might have the old EJ back. As other Days news rolls in, we’ll keep bringing you updates.
