Bonnie’s Big Day Starts With a Gun and Exploding Feathers and Ends With a Wedding Crasher and Accusations
Tuesday, September 7, 2021: Today on Days of Our Lives, Xander puts the pieces together, Bonnie scrambles to deal with Calista, and Doug's confused.
In his hotel room, Xander tells Gwen how Bonnie came over to invite him to her wedding. He realizes Bonnie stole his key card so she could break in later and grab the briefcase full of cash. He vows she’ll rue the day she crossed him. Gwen feels terrible he’s in this mess because of her. Xander points out it was his choice and implores her not to tell Jack the truth about her miscarriage. If she does, then everything he’s done will be for naught. Not to mention, Jack might not forgive her for lying about Abigail causing her miscarriage. Gwen can’t believe he’s sacrificing for her. She’s worth it, he says. She’s not sure what she’ll tell Jack about her involvement with Synder but at least he’ll know Xander isn’t at fault. He kisses her for luck before she leaves.

Calista holds Bonnie at gunpoint upstairs at the Kiriakis mansion. She tells her former sister-in-law, “Today, you die.” Bonnie begs for her life but Calista wants vengeance for her hubby’s death. She grabs a pillow to use as a silencer. Bonnie lunges for her and they struggle. The gun goes off causing feathers to fly. As they pull away, Calista touches the blood on her dress and falls onto the bed.
Steve welcomes the Justice of the Peace to the mansion. He fills him in on the confusing details of Justin and Bonnie’s union. Kayla and Justin show up after the man heads to the kitchen for food. Kayla goes to tend to the bride, leaving Justin to rant about Bonnie’s odd behavior. Justin knows it took a lot for Steve to be his best man. He appreciates his support. Steve just asks Justin to be happy. They toast as the officiant returns looking to get the show on the road.
Bonnie panics as Kayla knocks on the bedroom door. She scrambles to clean up as Calista’s body remains lifeless on the bed. She rolls Calista over onto her side and puts a blanket over her as Kayla enters. Bonnie lies that Calista isn’t feeling well — too many mimosas. Kayla offers to help a shaky Bonnie get into her wedding dress.
