Abigail’s funeral isn’t the only good Salem faces this week. According to Soaps.com, Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal upcoming episodes will be emotional. Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) and Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) prepare to embark on a new journey with their son, baby Bo. The Horton and Brady clans gather to bid the family farewell as they prepare to visit Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso).

Meanwhile, Ciara’s brother Shawn Brady (Brandon Beemer) is in danger. His baby mama Jan Spears (Heather Lindell), is keeping secrets from him, and she feels the walls closing in on her. The villain has a trick up her sleeve when she lures Shawn to the docks.

However, Jan’s plan may backfire. By the end of the week, Shawn meets with his estranged wife, Belle Brady (Martha Madison). The couple might be taking steps toward reconciliation because Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) warns Belle’s current beau EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerriegel), to prepare for heartache.

Speaking of EJ, he makes a confession to his half-brother Chad this week. Could his confession have something to do with the arrest Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) makes in Abigail’s murder?
