'Days Of Our Lives' Spoilers: Stefano Shocker The Key To Hope's Freedom?

Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that a shocking secret about the late Stefano DiMera is about to be revealed, and fans will be stunned to hear that the old man had one final trick up his sleeve before his death.

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, Days of Our Lives is about to unveil Stefano DiMera's last scheme. The report reveals that the death of Salem's most notorious villain wasn't all it was cracked up to be. It looks like there will be a huge twist involving Stefano's death, and when it is finally revealed, the news could lead to Hope being freed from prison.

As Days of Our Lives fans know, Hope Brady is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence for the murder of Stefano DiMera. Hope shot and killed Stefano after she believed that his actions led to the death of her husband, Bo Brady. While viewers now know that Stefano was not to blame for Bo's tragic passing, he did provoke Hope while she was aiming the gun at him, and it wasn't because he believed she wouldn't pull the trigger.

The latest spoilers reveal that Hope's son, Shawn, and her boyfriend, Rafe, are doing everything they can to find a way to get Hope out of jail, and they may finally get the break they've been looking for. New evidence will allegedly be discovered in the case. This could lead to Hope being released from prison, where she's currently struggling with the way of life as well as other inmates.

The site reports that Shawn and Rafe will find out that Stefano DiMera was deathly ill in the days before his death. Shawn and Rafe will reportedly find emails showing Stefano was terminally ill and that it is likely he wanted Hope to end his life for him so he didn't have to suffer any longer. Even if the Salem police department can confirm that Stefano was ill and that he goaded Hope into shooting him, this doesn't mean she's not guilty. Hope still pulled the trigger and took Stefano's life. However, once everyone hears the entire story, Hope could end up off the hook for murder, which would mean a reduced prison sentence and/or parole.

It seems this is just Stefano DiMera's final torture toward the Brady family, and the news shouldn't surprise Days of Our Lives fans, who have watched as the DiMera patriarch take pleasure in hurting the residents of Salem for decades. Of course, it will be a while before Hope is out of prison. Currently, the storyline is only beginning to play out as Hope is making enemies and allies behind bars.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Hope Brady has already missed many special moments with her friends and family. Hope was behind bars for the Thanksgiving holiday, and it looks like she'll still be incarcerated over Christmas. She also recently missed the one-year anniversary of her late husband's death. As Bo Brady's family gathered to remember the late hero, Hope was forced to celebrate Bo's memory while in jail for her crimes.

Meanwhile, as Days of Our Lives viewers watch Hope struggle with prison life, there will be plenty of drama in Salem to go around. Adrienne will be forced to choose between Lucas and Justin all the while dealing with major health issues. Abigail will finally get the courage to reveal herself to Chad, but it may be too late to save their marriage, as he's obviously started having feelings for Gabi. Chloe's baby secret is bound to get out in the very near future.
