Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers for Wednesday, January 6, tease that John Black (Drake Hogestyn) will share his suspicions with Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols). “Cousin Angelo” Vitali (Angelo Tiffe) just admitted Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) had another son named Charlie and described him enough to connect the dots for John.
Now John thinks he’s figured out who Charlie is, so he’s about to shock Steve with the news that it’s Claire Brady’s (Isabel Durant) boyfriend. While John and Steve discuss this stunning turn of events, Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) will visit Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) to open up about his grief.
It’s been hard since Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) died, but Ben’s doing his best to put one foot in front of the other. Marlena will listen to Ben’s struggles and offer some helpful advice, but it looks like John will interrupt with an urgent phone call.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Marlena will get updates on the Charlie connection John’s made, so things will click into place for her, too. Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) told Marlena that she felt triggered by Charlie and guessed it was because he reminded her a little bit of Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams).
That’ll make a lot of sense to Marlena once she realizes Charlie and Tripp are half-brothers! Marlena will hang up her call with John and fill Ben on the danger Claire may be in.
Although Marlena won’t have confirmation on anything, she’ll suspect Charlie could be Allie’s true attacker – and Ben should hear about that as well.
Once Ben knows Claire’s in trouble, DOOL spoilers say he’ll agree to team up with Marlena and try to track Claire down. It looks like Ben and Marlena will split up as they try to stop Charlie and Claire from getting too close.
Unfortunately, Charlie’s already at Claire’s place and her parents aren’t home. Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer) and Belle Brady (Martha Madison) are still on their honeymoon, so Charlie will be ready to make his move.
Days spoilers say Charlie will admit he wants to make love to Claire – and Claire will wholeheartedly agree she’s ready to take that step.
Naturally, Claire would never consent to sleep with Charlie if she had all the facts. Charlie will know this deep down, but he’ll hold out hope that he can keep Allie’s assault and Ava’s kidnapping under wraps.
At Charlie’s apartment, captive Ava will apparently have some wild hallucinations thanks to her drugging. A stunning DOOL fantasy is on the way, which will feature Tripp discovering Ava in Charlie’s apartment.
Charlie will stab and kill Tripp in these fantasy scenes, so Ava will look horrified as Charlie stands there holding a bloody knife. At one point, Ava will imagine Steve coming along and either knocking Charlie out or killing him, too.
Ava’s mind will be a mess, so she won’t know what’s real and what’s just in her head anymore.
Once Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) gets alerted to Charlie drama, he’ll race over to Charlie’s apartment and open the door to find hostage Ava. While Rafe makes that surprising discovery, Days of Our Lives spoilers say Ben will burst in Claire’s bedroom across town.
Ben will yank Charlie off and warn him to stay away from Claire, so chaos is sure to erupt!
Next, Allie will grill Tripp about the phone call she just overheard. Tripp left Steve a message hoping that his dad got Angelo to admit he was behind Allie’s attack.
Of course, Allie’s probably going to think that’s ridiculous. Even while drunk, Allie would know the difference between a young man with Tripp’s build and a heavyset man in his 60s.
However, Tripp might argue that it could’ve been another relative. He’ll explain Steve’s theory and leave Allie determined to find out the real story behind her London attack. Although Allie will undergo hypnosis eventually, she’ll also hear what John and Steve uncovered within the next few episodes.
Days spoilers say the jig will be up for Charlie soon enough, so don’t miss his looming downfall. CDL will have lots of other Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news to read up on, so stop by often.
