Days of Our Lives fans have less than a week to go before NBC resumes airing the long-running soap opera. It has been on hiatus due to the Olympics, and a lot is going to happen in Salem when the series returns. With Victor Kiriakis getting arrested, who will help clear his name? Is it possible that his brother and enemy, Deimos Kiriakis, may work to prove Victor’s innocence?
DOOL spoilers are ahead. If you do not want to know what is going to happen on the popular soap opera, then stop reading now.
When Days of Our Lives returns next week, Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) and Theresa Donovan (Jen Lilley) will find their kidnapped son, Tate. In Chicago, the woman who has the baby points the finger at Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston). As fans know from the NBC preview clip, Victor is arrested and put behind bars. However, will he be found innocent, and if so, how will it happen?
According to DaysCafe, Deimos Kiriakis (Vincent Irizarry) will tell Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) that he will clear Victor’s name. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Days of Our Lives fans are not sure if Deimos was responsible for setting up Victor or not. He definitely has his reasons. After all, Victor had Deimos spend 30 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. If Deimos wanted vengeance, having him convicted would be the ultimate revenge.
However, Deimos has been spending a lot of time trying to prove to Nicole he has changed. He even gave Victor some of his money and one company back. What Days of Our Lives fans did not see was the true motivation behind Deimos’ actions. Did his near-death experience really change him? Does he really want to be a better man for Nicole? Is it just another mind game while he works behind the scenes to continue destroying Victor’s life?
It is possible that someone else is responsible for setting up Victor Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives. Deimos is the perfect suspect, but there is one thing that doesn’t make sense. It has been made clear on multiple occasions how much children mean to Vincent Irizarry’s character. He immediately bonded with Chloe Lane’s (Nadia Bjorlin) son, Parker. He felt awful when Brady and Theresa’s son was kidnapped. He also made it clear to Nicole that he wanted to have children, which is why she suddenly left. Even though he would do anything to get back at Victor, putting a child in physical or emotional harm is not something Deimos would do.
Other Days of Our Lives spoilers were published in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest. The magazine stated that three villains will return. As fans know from watching the preview clip, the men are Clyde Weston (James Read), Xander Cook (Paul Tefler), and Orpheus (George DelHoyo). Xander will try to strangle Theresa on her wedding day, Clyde will threaten to shoot Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow), and Orpheus wants everyone at Brady’s wedding to die.
Also, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) will have a medical crisis, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) is hiding a secret, and Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn) will consider giving up custody of Thomas.
Meanwhile, Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) relapses, and Ciara Brady (Vivian Jovanni) will tell Chad she loves him. However, her heart is broken, and she looks for her second choice, Theo Carver (Kyler Pettis). What she doesn’t expect is that Theo and Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) are kissing.
What do you think is going to happen with Victor and Deimos Kiriakis on Days of Our Lives? Will Nicole’s boyfriend help clear Victor’s name, or was he the one that set up Tate’s grandfather to begin with?
Days of Our Lives airs new episodes on August 22.
