Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers update for Thursday, January 7, teases that Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) and Lani Price-Grant (Sal Stowers) will look forward to taking their twins home from the hospital.
Before Lani’s officially released along with the babies, she’ll share some sweet moments with Eli and Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams). It looks like Valerie will hand over a breast pump as a gift for Lani, so she’ll be appreciative. However, Valerie will also get some news that’s a bit of a bummer.
Since Carver Grant was named after Abe Carver (James Reynolds) and Julia “Jules” Grant was named after Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes), Lani and Eli may be sorry Valerie’s name wasn’t honored.
Of course, what’ll matter most to Valerie is that both babies are happy and healthy. Valerie will be ready to spoil her grandchildren rotten, but she’ll give Lani and Eli some time to bond alone with their little ones. This grandma won’t want to overstep, but she’ll be there if Eli and Lani need anything.
At some point, Eli will give Lani a traditional “push present” – that’s a gift for someone who’s just given birth, which is typically given by a spouse or partner. Doting husband Eli will think he’s found the perfect push present for Lani.
It appears it’ll be a locket containing pics of Carver and Jules, so Lani should be touched. This way Lani can always keep the twins close to her heart!
Lani’s probably going to be clinging to that locket as hope in the weeks ahead. That’s because Jules and Carver are about to get snatched! Somebody’s plotting to kidnap the twins, so it seems the culprit will scoop the babies from the nursery on Thursday and set up Friday’s discovery that they’re gone.
In the meantime, Charlie Dale (Mike Manning) and Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) will undress each other as they prepare to make love for the first time. Claire feels closer than ever to Charlie – and she’s even entertaining the notion that they’re soulmates thanks to Charlie’s speech on the topic.
However, Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) knows Charlie’s trouble and will bound through the door to say so. DOOL spoilers say Claire will be scantily clad along with shirtless Charlie, so they’ll both flip out.
Ben will bark at Charlie to move away from Claire and will even take Claire’s arm to make sure they physically separate.
Ben will insist that Claire isn’t safe with Charlie, but she’ll demand an explanation. It doesn’t look like Claire will learn much right now, but John Black (Drake Hogestyn) will reveal the horrible details next week.
Claire will eventually find out about Charlie attacking Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) and abducting Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun), so she’ll face some shockers in the coming episodes.
Speaking of Ava, she’ll wake up disoriented in Thursday’s exciting show. Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) just entered Charlie’s apartment to find Ava gagged, tied up and out cold on the floor. Rafe is inexplicably asking if Ava’s OK – as if anyone in her position would be. No, Rafe! She’s not OK!
Once Ava awakens, her first question may be if Rafe’s real. Ava’s been seeing some wild stuff in her hallucinations, so she won’t know if Rafe’s actually there to help or just another vision. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Rafe will untie Ava and let her hold onto him as he calls for medical assistance.
Ava will be rushed to the hospital, where Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) will be put in charge of her old foe’s care. Kayla will quickly realize Ava’s been drugged, so she’ll undoubtedly try to rid Ava’s system of what’s making her hallucinate.
Ava will be a nervous wreck, so it seems Kayla will plan to inject her with a mild sedative in the meantime. Unfortunately, Ava will be spooked by the needle and may put up a fight.
As Kayla tries to treat Ava, she may ask what exactly happened. Ava might mention something about her twisted son – leading Kayla to wonder if Ava means Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams).
That could be how it comes out that Ava has a second son – Tripp’s half-brother, Charlie. The puzzle pieces will start clicking into place for Kayla, who’ll realize Charlie must be Allie’s actual assaulter. Rafe will have some updates to pass along from John, so Kayla will reel over all the bombshells she’s facing.
Other Days spoilers say Charlie will return to his apartment following his confrontation with Ben. After Charlie comes home to see that Ava’s gone, he’ll start trying to figure out what he’ll do next.
Charlie’s predicament will take another stunning turn when he’s hauled down to the police station, so it seems Rafe will pop back up to handle this.
