Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers update for the week of July 19-23 teases that Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) annulment will push Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) over the edge – and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) will have to say a painful goodbye. Sami Brady DiMera (Alison Sweeney) will also get busted, so it’ll be a week to remember on the NBC soap!
Since Ciara wasn’t able to score a divorce, she’ll go the annulment route instead and leave Ben beyond frustrated.
Ben was counting on stalling Ciara’s upcoming wedding to Theo Carver (Cameron Johnson), but the sands will be running through the hourglass fast.
If Ben wants to stop this wedding, he’ll have to get creative – and he’ll need some partners in crime on his side.
Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) will pitch in along with Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold), who’ll once again serve as Ciara’s maid of honor.
Allie will do her part by trying to jog Ciara’s memory about her previous wedding to Ben, but she won’t be able to stop this new wedding from happening.
From there, Claire will intervene and get into a fierce battle with Claire.
That’ll set the stage for Ben to abduct Ciara and let Claire side in her place as the veiled bride-to-be.
By the time everyone realizes a switch has gone down, Days spoilers say Ben will be long gone with kidnapped Ciara.
Next, let’s talk about Paulina Price (Jackée Harry) and a big announcement she’s set to make.
Paulina will deliver more apologies around town – one in particular to Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) since they haven’t had a chance to discuss the Price Town debacle yet.
Paulina will also have some important news for Abe Carver (James Reynolds) and Lani Price-Grant (Sal Stowers), so has she had a change of heart?
That’s the only thing that might get Lani and Abe to consider forgiveness, so hopefully Paulina will ditch her big-box store plans sooner or later.
Over with Chanel Dupree (Raven Bowens), she’ll open up to Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) about getting rejected.
Chanel was hurt when Allie chose Tripp Johnson (Lucas Adams) instead, but DOOL spoilers say Eli will have some words of wisdom and will score a hug in return.
After Xander Cook Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) ruins the anniversary party by revealing Nicole Brady’s (Arianne Zucker) cheating blunder, he’ll get punched by Eric and fired by Brady Black (Eric Martsolf).
As for Nicole, she’ll bark out a threat at Sami and pique EJ DiMera’s (Dan Feuerriegel) interest.
Afterward, Eric and Nicole will let their emotions loose during a tough post-party confrontation. It’s going to be brutal, but they’ll definitely say things that need to be said.
Nicole will find Eric packing for the Congo and will accept that he’s not coming back later as planned. We’ll see some pain and anger on both sides since Eric has to own his part in their marriage issues.
Eric missed his entire first year of marriage and made Nicole feel like she didn’t truly matter to him.
That doesn’t justify sleeping with Eric’s worst enemy, so Nicole has to own her part in this, too.
In the end, Nicole and Eric will have to admit they’ve been terrible spouses to each other.
This will be the end of the road for now, so Eric will split from Nicole and distract himself with more work in Africa.
Later, Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) will offer Nicole a shot at derailing Sami’s life with a letter scandal that’s sure to infuriate EJ, so Nicole will happily make that special delivery. This should serve as a satisfying distraction for her as well.
Days spoilers say EJ will read what Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) wanted him to know and realize his wife’s been lying to him.
EJ will trash his office in a fit of rage and mull over how exactly he’s going to make Sami pay for betraying him with Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo).
Meanwhile, Lucas will pour his heart out to Sami and beg her to make the better choice. He’ll think “Lumi” is preferable to “EJami” and will profess his deep love for his former flame.
Sami will cry over the heartfelt gesture, but it seems she’ll reject Lucas – only to get rejected by EJ once the letter drama erupts.
