DOOL spoilers are ahead. Do not continue reading unless you want to know what is coming up on the long-running series.
In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, Ken Corday discussed several upcoming storylines. One of them had to do with Anjelica returning to Salem. The executive producer teased that the character arrives in town with “wicked intent.” At first, her plans don’t seem too bad. However, don’t be fooled because there is a lot more coming.
Days Of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Anjelica causes a lot of problems. She will also reintroduce two people to the show. The fact that the executive producer said reintroduce means that they will be familiar to some viewers. The question is who are they and what kind of trouble will the trio stir up?
Corday also explained that Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Adrienne (Judi Evans) will have to overcome a lot of obstacles. Luckily, Steve “Patch” Johnson (Stephen Nichols) will be helping them.
“Anjelica returns to Salem with wicked intent. Jennifer and Adrienne – with Steve’s help – must overcome the obstacles set before them. It will be wonderful; Morgan Fairchild brings a whole new flavor to it. Her plan is more than it seems at first. She wreaks havoc and reintroduces two characters into the canvas.”
For those that do not know who Anjelica is on DOOL, she is the mother of Alexander Kiriakis. According to Serial Scoop, Alexander is not to be confused with Alexandros Kiriakis, also known as Xander Cook (Paul Telfer). The two are completely different characters.

Regarding Anjelica on Days Of Our Lives, she used to be Jack Deveraux’s stepmother. While she was married to Harper Deveraux, she had an affair with Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth). Justin and Adrienne were separated at the time of the fling. Angelica became pregnant and after discovering Harper was sterile, she knew the baby belonged to Justin. However, she didn’t reveal the truth until later.
According to Soap Central, Justin and Adrienne got back together. In an attempt to break up their marriage, Anjelica let Adrienne find out the true paternity of Alexander. However, her scheme failed and Adrienne stayed with her husband. Her next plan was to marry Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) because she knew Justin wouldn’t allow his son to be raised by Victor. It only partially worked. Justin stopped the wedding but still didn’t marry Anjelica. Then, Adrienne faked a pregnancy to keep Justin, but the truth was eventually revealed.
When Anjelica left Salem on Days Of Our Lives, it was because she arranged a bomb to detonate at a construction site where Adrienne was working. When she didn’t die in the blast, Anjelica knew the truth would soon be revealed. She initially left with Alexander and allowed everyone to believe they died in a plane crash. However, in later episodes, Alexander went to live with Justin, and Anjelica hasn’t been heard from since.
It will be interesting to find out what Anjelica’s plan is when she returns to Salem. With Justin and Adrienne divorced, will she still try to eliminate the woman she considers competition? Does she blame Adrienne for Justin rejecting her? How does Jennifer Horton fit into all of this? Fans will find out this summer when Morgan Fairchild makes her Days Of Our Lives debut.
