Monday May 16, 2022: Today on Days of Our Lives, Ciara overpowers the devil with a little divine intervention, and Tripp leaps into action to save Allie's life.
At the station, Shawn updates John about Evan and the devil’s plan to take over the baby’s soul. Shawn gets a message about Jan’s ankle monitor going off. John says he’ll deal with Jan, so Shawn can look for the baby.
At the Pub, Eric and Belle talk about Ciara’s baby, and her rocky marriage. He urges her not to let Jan get the best of her, but Belle doesn’t know what else to do. Belle gets a message from John about Jan’s ankle monitor going off. She worries what that psycho could do if she’s on the loose.
John enters Shawn and Belle’s place, as Jan comes out in a red negligee and robe. John is sorry to disappoint her, but Shawn’s not there. She covers up. They bicker about Belle, and Jan declares she will end up with Shawn. John reminds her Shawn and Belle always find a way back to each other.
Tripp calls Marlena, who tells him the devil is still possessing Allie. She’s waiting to hear from Johnny, who went to the cemetery. Tripp’s going out there himself. He loves her granddaughter and will do whatever he can to get Allie out of this nightmare.
At the cemetery, Ben and Ciara roll up on their bikes and order AllieDevil away from their son. Ben enters the devil’s pentagram, but a jolt of red light knocks him out. Charlie chuckles, as he says they wasted their time coming there. His boss already won this battle. A red light casts over AllieDevil, who raises their arms to the sky. After confirming Ben still has a pulse, Ciara declares she won’t let the devil take her baby.

A white light casts over Ciara and she thrusts her arms toward AllieDevil. Johnny comes to, as AllieDevil realizes Ciara is fighting back. AllieDevil yells, “Be gone,” but Ciara’s light pushes AllieDevil out of the pentagram. Ciara picks up her baby and white light glows over them. AllieDevil is blinded by the light and takes off, leaving a frustrated Charlie to shout at Ciara, “I was supposed to raise that baby!” If he doesn’t get to raise the baby, then neither does Ben. He stomps over to Ben’s motionless body with a knife.
Just as Charlie is about to stab Ben, Tripp knocks him to dust with a baseball bat. Tripp then runs off to find AllieDevil.
