Days of our Lives spoilers reveal that Paulina’s (Jackée Harry) abusive ex comes to Salem. As viewers know, TR, then known as Ray, was mean and controlling, making Paulina fear for her life daily.

TR’s behavior was the reason Paulina had her sister Tamara (Marilyn McCoo) raise Lani (Sal Stowers). Paulina has a tough exterior, but she’s terrified of TR deep down.

The Days preview video showed Paulina freaking out when she spots TR in Salem. TR has no idea Lani is his daughter, but the secret is bound to come out soon. Once TR discovers the truth, there’s no way he will leave town.

Will TR prove to be as dangerous as Paulina remembers, or is he a changed man? Based on what Days of our Lives fans have seen so far, all signs point to him being just as evil as Paulina said.

One thing is for sure. TR’s presence in Salem will blow up Lani and Paulina’s lives.

I knew I recognized him I watched all my children from the begining. I probably couldn’t place him because he was playing a bad guy
