'Days Of Our Lives' Spoilers For Week April 17-21: John Returns, Chad Wants Abigail Back, Gabi Has A New Love?

As the citizens of Salem face the consequences of decisions made, Days of Our Lives spoilers for the week of April 17-21, 2017, reveal that many residents will face a tough time ahead. But not all is doom and gloom in NBC's soap opera, as Days of Our Lives fans will be thrilled that the irreplaceable John is back!

Monday, April 17, 2017

Abigail (Marci Miller) decides that it is time for her and Chad (Bill Flynn) to part ways after she told Chad on Friday that she cannot renew their vows. Abigail listened to the advice her friends gave her last week, and she could not go through with the vow renewal knowing that Chad still had feelings for Gabi (Camila Banus). She wants Chad to stay with her not out of obligation but out of love.

To top it off, the friends and confidantes of Chabby feel an increasing tension between them. Kate (Lauren Koslow), Jennifer (Melissa Reeves), and Andre (Thaao Penghlis) fume as Chad and Gabi hurt. They support either Chad or Abby, even both.

Eric (Greg Vaughan) still feels guilty about Dr. Daniel Jonas' death, and he wants to make it up to Nicole (Arianne Zucker) by trying to act as the peacemaker between her and Nicole.

Brady (Eric Martsolf) realizes Nicole is in over her head as far as Scooter is concerned and that she cannot handle him alone.

The day after Abigail makes her decision, according to the Inquisitr, Chad tells Gabi what happened at the vow renewal ceremony. Chad had previously told Abigail that he would stay clear of Gabi, yet she is the first person he tells the news. However, Gabi also doesn't want only half of Chad's heart either.

And guess who comforts Abigail? None other than the other Hernandez sibling, Dario (Jordi Vilasuso).

Nicole confesses something to Brady.

Jade (Danielle Haugh) talks to Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) about Theo (Kyle Pettis) and Wyatt (Scott Shilstone) and makes a crazy suggestion. According to the Inquisitr, she suggests that Claire should make a sex tape with Theo and then leak it online. This will serve a dual purpose: It will keep the romance going with Theo and help her flailing music career.
