‘Days of Our Lives’ This Week: Brawls and Bustups All Over Salem

While Days of Our Lives has been all about love and family for the past few weeks, this week’s episodes will be more than a little different. Mar-Devil has been stirring the pot all over Salem, and finally, the devil is coming to collect his due (in a manner of speaking). Meanwhile, other Salem residents have problems with each other, and it’s all going to come to a head this week.

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

On ‘Days of Our Lives,’ Paulina is desperate to get back with Abe

Keeping secrets from Abe ultimately backfired in Paulina’s face, and Abe called off the wedding. But on this week’s episodes of Days of Our Lives, Paulina is desperate to make things right with the love of her life. Look for the two former lovers to meet up with each other on the December 3 episode of the show, according to Soaps @ SheKnows.

At that time, Paulina will open her heart up to Abe. Granted, she shouldn’t have kept those secrets. But, like everyone else, she had her reasons for keeping the secrets. So the question begs itself: can Abe forgive Paulina, or were her lies too great to overcome?

As Paulina tries to patch things up with her man, she’s also working on getting to the bottom of the Mar-Devil situation. And when she meets up with John, she just might find out more than she hoped to ever know.

But John and Paulina are catching on to Mar-Devil’s machinations

The Thursday, December 2 episode of Days of Our Lives promises to be a bad one for the Mar-Devil. Not only are John and Paulina catching on to her, but Ciara is, as well.

“When John and Paulina compare notes about Marlena, what conclusion will they come to?” asks the outlet, rhetorically. “Meanwhile, despite knowing that hubby Ben is close to Marlena, Ciara shares with him that she feels as if something’s not quite right with his favorite shrink.”

Previous Days of Our Lives spoilers have revealed that the Mar-Devil possession story will wrap up sometime around Christmastime. So, as enjoyable as this storyline has been — and as far superior as it has been to its original version — it will, alas, be wrapping up this month. As more characters catch on to the possession, expect things to come to a head in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Salem

Other characters are taking center stage on Days of Our Lives this week, too, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry. The still-kidnapped Sami is fighting her kidnappers. Xander is ready to lock horns with Kristen and all her machinations. And Philip will knock out Brady with a crowbar, all but killing him. Big old yikes! The characters are all fighting with each other, and someone’s going to get hurt! Keep watching Days of Our Lives to see who survives to the end of the year.
