Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Week of October 31 Recap Review – Xander’s Timebomb Marriage – Kristen & Brady’s Turning Point

Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers recap review for the week of October 31-November 4 reveals that Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) had a ticking timebomb marriage while Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) and Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) reached a potential turning point.

First, we should talk about Xander and the backsliding he’s doing right now.

This actually makes a lot of sense as an obstacle for Xander and Sarah Cook (Linsey Godfrey).

After all, Xander is a long-time criminal with a history of offenses that’s a mile long. It’d be unrealistic and boring if Xander could just turn off that criminal mindset like a light switch.

It’s much more interesting if Xander wants to be better for Sarah and fails miserably because he also wants to give her a better life.

Xander is making massive mistakes, but his heart is in the right place.

DOOL fans know Xander kidnapped Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) for Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun), who offered him a cut of the millions they stand to make from the ransom.

The old Xander would’ve had absolutely no problem doing something like that, so the fact that Xander’s struggling with it now still shows character growth.

Xander is no longer a bad person, but he’s still doing bad things – and that makes this an excellent story with the potential for gripping drama once it all blows up.

It was also nice that Days remembered Sarah and Rachel Black’s (Finley Rose Slater) connection when she made that house call.

Sarah raised “Mickey” aka Rachel for the first year of her life, so that’s always going to be a bond that she longs for a bit – and Linsey Godfrey played that beautifully.

Of course, Rachel’s tummy ache was also a great way to bring Brady and Kristen together.

It showed that Kristen really does have a maternal side that Brady can’t ignore.

Days also highlighted how Brady has been the more hands-on parent since he knew how to handle everything far better than Kristen did.

Brady and Kristen learned a little about each other through the whole ordeal, which was a false alarm since Rachel just ate too much Halloween candy.

However, Kristen touched Brady’s hand as they sat with Rachel on the sofa – and Brady let her.

Although Brady hates being backed into a corner, this could serve as a turning point and lead to this “Bristen” reunion becoming the real deal eventually.
