Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers recap for Friday, November 25, reveals that Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) faced an eerie Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) haunting while Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu) reversed her baby decision. Sarah Cook (Linsey Godfrey) also got an awful clue, so here’s how all the Days action went down.
At the crash site, Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) found EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel) drinking and pushed him for his statement.
EJ recapped everything that happened after he showed up to pay Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) the ransom for Susan, but Rafe had a hunch he wasn’t getting the whole story.
Rafe said EJ was hindering his investigation and added that he could arrest EJ for obstructing justice, but he wouldn’t considering everything EJ had been through.
Once Rafe admitted he was getting a divorce from Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker), he was surprised when EJ declined to gloat.
Rafe hinted that there might already be trouble in paradise for Nicole and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) before leaving EJ, who continued ultimately got up to leave, too.
EJ then heard a rustling noise nearby and called out wondering if it was Susan.
At home, Marlena welcomed Eric inside and was surprised to learn he was going to be a dad. Although Marlena said that was wonderful news, Eric picked up on her hesitation.
Eric admitted this wasn’t planned and that things were complicated since he’d gone back to Nicole, but he felt he could make co-parenting work with Jada.
Marlena thought Eric needed to talk to Nicole as soon as possible, but he remained hopeful it would all work out.
Once Marlena was alone, she heard a thud and noticed the “Marbie” doll from Susan had fallen off the mantel.
Marlena commented on it being strange and wondered how that happened.
At Jada’s place, Nicole stopped by and tried to apologize for the situation, but Jada told her to “shut the hell up.”
After Nicole admitted to overhearing Eric talk about raising this child with Jada, she noted that Jada seemed angry and questioned why she wanted a baby to tie her to Eric forever.
Nicole wished someone had painted a realistic picture of motherhood for her beforehand, so she tried to paint that picture for Jada now.
Once Nicole pointed out how this baby would affect Jada’s career, she acted like Jada could get depressed and resentful.
Jada eventually lost her temper and ordered Nicole out of her apartment.
Later, Jada noticed Rafe wasn’t wearing his wedding ring at the station and learned he was getting a divorce.
That led to Jada admitting she was originally going through with the pregnancy, but now she realized she couldn’t do it.
Back with Eric on Friday’s DOOL episode, he found Nicole in the town square and told her about Jada keeping the baby.
Eric insisted that he loved only Nicole and that nothing would change between them.
At the motel, Maggie Kiriakis (Suzanne Rogers) brought Thanksgiving leftovers and learned from Sarah that Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) hadn’t been feeling well.
Xander had been in bed all day before finally stepping out to get some air.
Talk turned to the kidnapping drama, so Maggie mentioned how Bonnie Kiriakis (Judi Evans) said her captor was a muscle-bound man in a clown mask with a blue business suit.
The wheels started turning for Sarah when she saw Xander’s blue business suit nearby.
Sarah thought everything was starting to make sense and feared Xander made up his pharmaceutical startup job because he was actually working for Ava.
However, Maggie acted like Sarah’s imagination was running away with her.
Although Maggie had been concerned before, she now thought Sarah should trust Xander unless she had overwhelming evidence against him.
At the Horton house on Friday’s Days episode, Xander opened up to Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) about everything going off the rails.
Although Xander felt guilty for Susan’s death, Gwen insisted it wasn’t his fault.
Xander thought he was the same “worthless piece of garbage” he’d always been, but Gwen said he had good intentions and just wanted to be a good provider.
When Xander suggested he should just tell Sarah the truth, Gwen advised against it and promised she wouldn’t say anything.
Gwen thought she understood Xander better than anyone and felt that’s why he trusted her with his secret.
Once Xander showed back up at the motel, Sarah said she’d move his blue suit so they’d have somewhere to sit.
Xander picked up on Sarah’s weird tone and wondered what was up.
Sarah thought that maybe over dinner Xander could tell her if he was the clown that kidnapped Bonnie and Susan!
Days of Our Lives spoilers say Xander will struggle to wiggle out of a tight spot, so stay tuned to DOOL.
