“Days Of Our Lives” soap recap

In the previous episode, Dario was heartbroken when Abby told him that she’s not feeling the same way for him – she’s in love with Chad. While she tried to let him down gently, she made it clear that she needs to stay away from him and Gabi should do the same with Chad. Dario understood and told Abby that he’ll be there for her if anything goes wrong.

Elsewhere, Brady surprised Nicole when he returned to her new home in Canada. She was further taken aback when he professed his love for her. When she said that he’s not yet over his ex, Brady argued that he doesn’t have any feelings left for Theresa (Jen Lilley). Nicole continued to express her hesitations but Brady was positive that things will work out between them. Meanwhile, it may only be a matter of time before Chloe catches up on them – Dario informed her and Eduardo that a man resembling Brady was spotted crossing the border with Nicole.
