‘Days of Our Lives’ Speculation: Paulina’s Lucky Streak Runs Dry

Ever since Jackée Harry rode into the frame on Days of Our Lives back in March 2020, she’s delighted fans with her depiction of Paulina Price. Harry has played Paulina with just the right combination of villainous and funny, but always with a big heart. However, this latest show speculation suggests that Paulina’s lucky streak just might have run dry.

[Spoiler alert: Potential spoilers for upcoming episodes of Days of Our Lives are up ahead.]

On ‘Days of Our Lives,’ Olivia’s arrival changed a lot of things for Paulina

Days of Our Lives has proved, in recent weeks, that Paulina had a lot to worry about once her mother, Olivia, came to visit her in Salem. Olivia’s whole reason for coming to Salem was to stop the big family secret from coming to light. But it didn’t take long for the secret to be revealed.

And according to Soaps @ SheKnows, that “big secret” involved the truth about Lani’s mother. As it turns out, it’s Paulina, not her sister, who is Lani’s mother! Fortunately for Lani — and Paulina — she still doesn’t know the truth. But nothing in Salem can remain a secret forever — so it won’t be long before Lani really finds out the truth.

The question is, how will she handle it when it comes out?

She had to come clean about a few things

According to SoapHub, we just might get our answer sooner than later. Their Days of Our Lives spoilers tease that Paulina will be in the “hot seat” on the Sept. 9 episode. However, they don’t make clear what, precisely, she’s going to be in the hot seat for — or who will be doing the questioning.

Remember, too, that Paulina already promised Olivia that she’d be coming clean to Lani about her lineage. But, hey, what the old lady doesn’t know won’t hurt her, right? Since when has Paulina cared about what her meddling mother has to say about it all?

But not even Paulina is made of stone — and she’s not going to want to see her baby hurt. So even if she doesn’t care about what her mother has to say, Lani is definitely going to be devastated when she discovers she’s been lied to. Will the fear of hurting her daughter make Paulina keep her mouth shut — or spill the beans?

But upcoming episodes suggest this is just the beginning

Paulina is also a character on the upcoming Days of Our Lives spinoff, Beyond Salem. And bless her heart, she’s bringing the drama there, too. In a different report for Soaps @ SheKnows, it was speculated that in the upcoming spinoff, she’ll be flashing some expensive “baubles,” which may have sinister ties.

“Ben finds a wedding gift for his beloved Ciara, while Paulina shows off a flashy bauble. (Anyone else suspect each of these might be tied to the missing gems around which this five-episode series revolves?),” they write. And then, “when an unexpected guest shows up, will Paulina greet them with open arms or close the door in their face?” Surely, this arrival will cause her to have to answer some burning questions, right?

Now, this is all just speculation. Who knows how lucky Paulina may, or may not, be in the future? We’ll just have to tune in to upcoming episodes of Days of Our Lives to find out.
