Days of our Lives spoilers tease in true Salem fashion, a court battle turns into a three-ring circus.
The New Year isn’t looking so bright for EJ (Dan Feuerriegel). First, he gets arrested for kidnapping Sami (Alison Sweeney), something he actually didn’t do. Then, he heads to a trial where he does more harm than good.
Days of our Lives spoilers revealed that EJ asks Belle (Martha Madison) to defend him against the kidnapping charges. The latest preview video dropped by NBC shows Belle accepts the job and is ready to help EJ, even as he makes it extremely challenging.
EJ maintains his innocence
Thanks to Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) doctoring evidence and cutting a deal with Jason (Noel Gugliemi), the kidnapper, EJ is headed to trial. DA Trask (Tina Huang) needs a win, so Days fans should expect her to pull out all the stops to convict EJ.
Ahead of the trial, EJ declares to Belle that he’s been framed. EJ has been blabbing to anyone who will listen that Lucas orchestrated Sami’s kidnapping.
EJ takes the stand as Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Johnny (Carson Boatman) sit in the courtroom. The DiMera heir continues to maintain his innocence even under oath.
Abigail (Marci Miller) takes a break from searching for Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) to support Chad (Billy Flynn), who is also called to testify at EJ’s trial. Chad knows Lucas is setting up EJ.
The question is – will Chad come clean or help send his brother to jail?
EJ threatens Lucas in court
When Lucas returns to Salem to testify against EJ, things go off the rails. Yes, Lucas just left Salem with Sami, but he needs to come back to put the finishing touches on his master plan.
Upon learning that Lucas is back and in court, EJ loses it on his nemesis. While Lucas is on the stand, EJ stands up and screams, “You kidnapped Samantha. I’ll kill you!”
Oh yes, the move is pretty much a nail in EJ’s coffin. However, EJ is a DiMera, and Days of our Lives fans should never count him out.
The devil has plans for EJ too. Days spoilers also spill that JonDevil works to strike a deal that will help EJ. Little does EJ know he’s dealing with the devil, not his son.
It’s going to be another crazy week in Salem, especially as EJ’s trial explodes in threats and craziness.
Lucas is one of many cast members exiting and possibly returning to the hit NBC show in 2022. Check out the rest of them here.
