Days of our Lives spoilers tease that tough times are coming for the good people of Salem, and fans will need a lot of tissues to get through it all.
The hit Peacock soap opera ended this week with a gut punch that had Kate (Lauren Koslow) succumbing to the virus Orpheus (George DelHoyo) infected her, Marlena (Deidre Hall), and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) with last fall.
There’s still speculation regarding whether Kate’s really dead, and head writer Ron Carlivati isn’t spilling any tea on this juicy storyline.
What Days fans do know is that the orchid Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) had to serve up the antidote was stolen, and Kate’s life may not be the only one lost.
The latest preview video teases a rough road ahead for Kate’s loved ones, and that’s not all.
Kayla’s health declines rapidly while Marlena’s faced with what the future holds for her as Salem gears up for a not-so-happy new year.
