Days of Our Lives spoilers for Friday, October 16, reveal there will be some very tense moments to end yet another dramatic week in Salem.
According to a recent report by Soap Hub, viewers will watch as John Black (Drake Hogestyn) blasts his best friend, Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols), for defending his son, Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams).
Earlier this week, John found out that his granddaughter, Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold), claimed that Tripp had raped her, which resulted in her pregnancy. John was furious to hear the claim and immediately began to lose control of his emotions.
As fans already know, John’s behavior has been much different since he woke up from his coma. He has a hard time getting a grip on his feelings and has been seen getting aggressive when he’s upset. The same can be said for when he found out about the rape allegations.
On Friday, John and his dear pal will battle it out with their words when Steve defends his son against the accusations. Tripp claims he did not assault Allie and that the pair never even got intimate with one another. Steve has been standing by his child through it all, although he has had a few doubts along the way.
Meanwhile, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) believes she has a way to put the allegations to rest. Allie claims Tripp attacked her and fathered her newborn son, Henry. If that is true, then a simple DNA test should be able to prove whether or not Tripp is little Henry’s biological father.
If the test reveals Tripp isn’t related to the child, then Allie could be looked at as a liar and she’ll have to re-examine her memories from the night she got pregnant. If Tripp didn’t assault her, then who did?
Elsewhere in Salem, Ciara Brady’s (Victoria Konefal) family members will be reeling after losing hope that she may be alive. One of those family members, Claire Brady (Isabel Durant), will have an exceptionally hard time dealing with the loss.
It will be Claire’s new friend, Charlie (Mike C. Manning), who is there to comfort her as she officially grieves the loss of her aunt, who was also her best friend. Charlie, who is an intern at Titan Industries, is new in town, but there may be more to his story.
Finally, Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) will push Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) over the edge. The two men have been battling it out for the CEO title at Titan, and it looks like Philip may have the upper hand.
