Days of Our Lives spoilers week of August 16:
Opinion: Days returned from the Olympic break with major action for Cin and EJami but the rest of the canvas could use a little more love.
Days of Our Lives spoilers for Monday, August 16:
In today’s recap, Paulina reveals that she is Lani’s mother, Xander is arrested, and Ben and Ciara reconnect after she breaks Theo’s heart.
In the real world, a visit from a parent isn’t usually cause for drama. But on soaps, it often kicks things into high gear. Certainly Paulina seems surprised, to say the least, when mom Olivia arrives in Salem. (Meanwhile, it should definitely prove fun for us given that it’ll be a 227 reunion for Jackée Harry and Marla Gibbs!)
Could Xander be falling for Gwen? That would explain why the hunk — who isn’t always the most generous of dudes — makes a big sacrifice on her behalf.
Sami’s plan to make EJ forgive her hit a snag — or did it go exactly as she planned? Join us as we run down the list of prime suspects in Samantha’s kidnapping.
Days of Our Lives spoilers for Tuesday, August 17:
In today’s recap, Gabi finds Sami’s necklace, Allie searches for her mother, and Olivia tries to prevent Paulina from confessing to Lani.
You can run from the past, but it inevitably catches up. That’s what Paulina finds out during a confrontation with mom Olivia. Meanwhile, new cast member Marla Gibbs reveals why a Ben/Ciara storyline almost caused her to quit watching the soap she’s loved for years!
There’s little Gabi enjoys more than pushing someone’s buttons. Today, she finds time in her busy schedule to do exactly that to Ava. Perhaps not coincidentally, at that very moment Rafe is helping calm a devastated Nicole.
After two weeks away from Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe), her real-life love thanks two special guys for ‘looking after my wife’.
Days of Our Lives spoilers for Wednesday, August 18:
In today’s recap, Allie and Marlena hear from Sami, John confronts EJ, and Olivia prevents an eager Paulina from telling Lani the truth.
We reported ages ago that Sami and EJ’s son, Johnny — who happens to be Allie’s twin — would be showing up. Well, at long last, today’s the day. And after arguing with his father, he hits on Chanel! Meanwhile, his sister’s concerns about missing mom Sami grow to the point that she loops John and Marlena in on what’s happening.
Chesapeake Shores teasers: Two men from Bree’s past reappear — plus, there’s an unexpected twist and an impending lawsuit threatens the O’Briens!

It looks as if Claire’s ready to make a fresh start somewhere new as she (and portrayer Isabel Durant) bids farewell to Salem.
Allie shares a happy reunion with her brother.
