Days Of Our Lives Spoilers For December 31-January 3.
Marlena feels bad when she nearly gives John a heart attack by deliberately sending him off to catch his son in bed with his ex. While she beats herself up about it and turns to Hope to moan, Brady is busy trying to convince his father that his feelings for Kristen extend beyond her nether-regions. All of this has worked into Kristen’s hands. She rubs it in the shrink’s face and looks forward to the new year. She starts it off by confessing everything to John and making it clear that it was all planned. She still hasn’t gotten over the way he treated her. He clues in that she has been banging his son for revenge. When Brady shows up after John storms off, Kristen tells him his dad was acting like a maniac. It isn’t long before John returns with Marlena, looking for a fight. John attempts to convince his son that Kristen is a vengeful harpy but Brady is so smitten that he winds up pounding on his papa for besmirching the honor of his lady love. Kristen thinks this is awesome. Marlena is so horrified that her eyebrows curl. John and Brady have to be hospitalized, but each refuses to talk to the cops. John feels bad for not believing Marlena. That makes her feel bad and she nearly confesses for sending him to walk in on the traumatic scene. Meanwhile, Kristen apologizes to Brady for the situation. She admits to herself that she is actually developing feelings for him and decides to end things. He won’t let her do it. She moans to EJ about her situation. He suddenly realizes that what she is up to could get in the way of his plans for Samanther.
Will convinces his grandma that Nick is actually a decent guy, even if he acts like a jerk sometimes. That’s good enough for Kate to want to hire him. Nick’s distracted by other things. He worries that Gabi will open her gob to Eric. He runs off and stops her just before she confesses everything to the priest. Sami simultaneously drops herself in the middle of all of this and insists on telling Eric everything herself, not that she actually knows what’s happening. Gabi gives the priest her cover story anyway and he agrees to go along with the wedding.
Adrienne tells Sonny how happy she is that he is happy with Will. Then she bumps into Kate and apologizes for trashing Will a couple of months ago. Meanwhile, Will has convinced himself that Nick is actually a good guy. He calls him out for his ‘gay boy’ comment and Nick tells him that he won’t put up with him if he keeps flip-flopping about the paternity issue. At that moment, Gabi and Sonny decide to make peace for Will’s sake.
Sami and Rafe continue obsessing over each other while they prepare for their dates with Nicole and EJ. Rafe is noticeably distraught when he sees Sami and Elvis together. Nic prods him to talk to her when EJ goes off for booze. Nicole decides to keep EJ distracted by pretending to be wasted and pulling him into a smooch. That gives Rafe the chance to ring in the New Year by locking lips with Sami. They’re both moved. EJ stalks over and plants his lips on her. Rafe does his best not to react to the fact that he and EJ just shared a pair of lips. Sami still doesn’t know which man she wants. As the clock ticks over, Chad spends the evening with Abby and they share a kiss while her mom pays Daniel a visit at the hospital and manages to get him to give her a peck. The next day, EJ makes another move on Sami. Eric interrupts to tell her about the brawl between John and Brady. She runs off to deal with the family drama. Both EJ and Rafe remain confident that they have her heart. She later bumps into Rafe and weeps all over him. Meanwhile, Marlena hunts down Elvis and lashes out at him because of his sister. At that moment, Kristen tracks down John. He doesn’t want to deal with her, but she says their business is far from over.
