On Days Of Our Lives, Paul Narita didn’t get bit by a harmless mosquito. It turns out that the insect is carrying a disease that will affect Paul’s behavior. It will also result in two other characters getting attacked. In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, actor Christopher Sean discussed the storyline and what happens next.
Next week will begin with JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) and Lani Price (Sal Stowers) interrupting Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) as he is about to kiss Gabi. They have terrifying news and might have to do with the skull that was found on the island. JJ and Lani came across an abandoned shelter and inside there was an old journal. One entry reveals that a man went crazy after being bitten by a mosquito and killed his wife.
Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) was looking for Paul, but was unable to locate him. After the group hears this, the stranded Salem residents organize a search party. Suddenly, Paul shows up and everyone is shocked by his messy appearance. Not only is he a mess physically, but he is also displaying erratic behavior.
“Paul knows he was bitten by a mosquito, but he doesn’t know the severity of the bite. He’s feverish and foggy in his thoughts.”
The group decides to sit down and eat. However, nobody seems to notice Paul’s death grip on the knife in his hand. Christopher Sean explained that just like Paul is holding the knife tighter each minute, “Jungle Madness” is getting a stronger grip on the character.
The next person to go missing on the island is Eli Grant. Days Of Our Lives spoilers reveal that the group begins to panic when he can’t be found. Meanwhile, Paul grabs a rock, sneaks up behind Gabi, and hits her in the head. She is knocked out cold and Paul wanders off, just leaving her lying there on the ground.
Eventually, Gabi opens her eyes and hears concerning news from Eli. The reason he went missing is because Eli and Paul got into a fight. Christopher Sean’s character, who is usually calm and wouldn’t hurt a fly, knocked out Eli. As the group discusses Paul’s shocking behavior, he runs away. This causes the others to come to the conclusion that Paul attacked Gabi. Eli suggests that they kill Paul before they all end up dead.
“They’re torn between wanting to help Paul, and not coming to his aid out of fear for their safety. Eli basically says, ‘We need to kill Paul before he kills us.'”
Sonny is angry when Eli suggests killing Paul on Days Of Our Lives. Spoilers reveal that he will defend his partner. Sonny makes it clear what will happen if Eli lays a finger on Paul.
