SID: MAY SWEEPS PREVIEW
Spring might have sprung, but not everything's coming up roses for the good -- and not so good -- folks of Salem! When secrets and schemes come to light on Days of Our Lives, the truth doesn't set people free. What tangled webs have been woven now? We've got the details!
Rafe's claim that he's the father of Nicole's baby has been the stumbling block that's kept Carrie from choosing him. This month, the gallant guy lets her in on the fact that it's all been a ruse to fool EJ! "Rafe's in a really difficult situation in that he's pretending to be the father of Nicole's child, and yet he has really strong feelings for Carrie," Galen Gering shares. "When she finds out, it's really problematic," he teases, adding that Carrie might not want to keep the news to herself. "I don't know that he necessarily thought that through!"
Talk about a good news/bad news scenario! Just as Lexie finds out she's dying, a sibling she never knew she had shows up! "There's a huge emotional response from Cameron," offers his portrayer, Schuyler Yancey. "It's bittersweet because he did get to meet her, but the fact that it's taken away and the discovery of the reasons why he didn't get to have more time with her will come out." Not surprising to anyone who has ever heard the last name DiMera, it is revealed this week that Stefano may have played a role in Lexie's ailment. Something tells us folks won't react well to that particular bit of news...
A New DiMera Heir?
Now that Stefano's ousted EJ from his spot as most-trusted son, might The Phoenix succeed in drawing Chad back into the fold? "He was born a DiMera; he's got the DiMera blood in him. You can't really turn away from family, not forever," Casey John Deidrick explains. "Especially when they're reaching out to him. Eventually, something's going to give." With EJ no longer in the running to become America's Next Top DiMera, and Stefano about to find himself in a place he'd definitely rather not be, will Chad wind up the big winner by default?
Gabi Goes After What She Wants!
Gabi's shenanigans have been fun for viewers to watch, but they won't continue to go unnoticed by her friends. Abigail is on to her pal's wicked ways... but it takes two to tango. Will Chad find himself in a lusty duet -- by which we mean having sex -- with Gabi? "She has a way of affecting Chad's views toward things!" admits Deidrick. Sounds like Melanie's in for a world of hurt where her man's concerned. "It's going to get pretty ugly over the next few months," he teases.
