This is your Summer Preview of Days 2018 * * * * Steve/Kayla: The show's head writer Ron Carlivati previews that in order to help Steve get back his eyesight Kayla makes a deal with Stefan and an interesting dynamic is set up where she is in this secret business relationship with him where Stefan will be pressuring her to do all kinds of underhanded things that people wouldn't expect Kayla to normally do.Carlivati also notes this can't possibly end well since Kayla is will be keeping what she's doing from Steve.
Theresa/Brady/Eve/JJ: Carlivati previews that Theresa's assumption was that either Eve would either step aside or that Brady would choose her or Tate and their family over Eve but after what he did to her the first time Brady is really trying to prove himself to Eve and so the decision won't be as simple as that.Carlivati notes that in her desperation JJ will turn out to be a person Theresa can turn to.
Ben's Return: Carlivati says that he thought Ben was a fascinating ch aracter and he wondered about Ben's redemption and possibility of new lease on life for Ben but he notes that since Ben is obviously such a polarizing person who affects so many characters a situation will be set up that has the whole town of Salem united against him.
Ciara/Tripp/Claire: Carlivati previews that while Kayla encourages Ciara to talk about her rape with Tripp even though Ciara doesn't want to Tripp at the same time will think Ciara isn't as into him as he thought and this will coincide with Claire's return from South Africa where she and Theo broke up.Carlivati notes that with both Tripp and Claire at this low point Ciara will walk on them in a compromising moment but before they can explain it to her Ciara in a high state of upset takes off on her motorcycle.
Will/Paul: Carlivati previews that in order to restore his memories Will takes a big risk which makes Paul worried and the questions then become if Will gets his full memory back will he remember his love for Sonny too and if so what will that do him and Paul?Carlivati notes that while there's so much that Will would love to recapture at the same time it's daunting since he has built a life for himself without those memories.
Chad/Sonny: Carlivati previews that since Stefan is running DiMera Chad in trying to combat Stefan finds himself a little bit without a power base but the possibility arises for Chad to run Titan since Sonny won't be in a position to run Titan right now as a result of the sexual harassment suit against him.Carlivati notes that in running Titan Chad will see it as the perfect way for him to go head to head with his brother.
Kate/Leo: Carlivati previews that Kate's plan is turned on its ear when Chad gets the opportunity to take control of Titan since Kate will no longer have a vested interest in taking down Titan so she can take it over if Chad has control of it.As for Leo, Carlivati points out Leo will be in the wild card in all of this since he saw a very big payday for himself coming and so he will have a alternate plan of his own.
Chad/Abigail: Carlivati previews that Chad will be thrilled when Abigail comes home once her intensive integration therapy with Laura is done but then some shocking news comes Abigail's way.
Gabi: Carlivati previews that the show is setting Gabi down a darker path of revenge against both Abigail and Stefan and as a result a the 'Forgive and Forget' Gabi will basically be no more.
Lani/Eli: Carlivati previews that Lani goes into premature and since he's the father Eli of course will be there for her and with the entire Horton family rallying around her too but it's very premature and so the situation is very dangerous.
