Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) dies in a warehouse explosion. However, fans have begun to question if Nicole is really dead after all. Is this the last we’ll see of Nicole Walker? Or, down the line, will Nicole come back to life in some way as is common in the sleepy little town of Salem?
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Nicole Walker’s Death
Nicole and her true love Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) only had a few days together before she met her untimely demise. Nicole Walker and Eric went their separate ways after she left town because Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) blackmailed her. Eric believed that she wanted nothing to do with him.
However, upon hearing about the real reason she fled Salem, Eric began his epic search to find his one true love again. Sadly, once Eric finally found her, he discovered that she married Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer). Xander forced her into marriage, as he held the tape recording of her murder confession. The two put their heads together to try and find a way for Nicole to get out of her marriage to Xander while reigniting their passionate love for each other.
Eric is devasted by Nicole’s untimely death. This was finally the time they would be able to be together, once and for all. However, Nicole ends up perishing in the warehouse explosion that almost kills Eric himself.

DOOL Spoilers: Is Nicole Really Dead?
Once it was revealed that Nicole dies, Days of Our Lives fans questioned whether Nicole’s death would be permanent. After all, Salem has seen quite a few deaths resurrected in the past few years, months, and even weeks. Could Nicole possibly survive the warehouse explosion somehow? Will Eric stumble upon the truth that she’s actually alive?
Ron Carlivati, head writer for DOOL, is known for his resurrections. While the head writer for ABC’s General Hospital, Carlivati wrote a story that resurrected Jake Webber (Hudson West). Fans thought Jake was dead following a hit and run perpetrated by Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary). The kid died and his kidneys saved someone else but Carlivati brought him back later.
With Carlivati’s past of writing character deaths into resurrections down the line, could we potentially see Nicole Walker sooner rather than later? Obviously, this is Days of Our Lives. Any death that happens is questionable.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Nicole’s Potential Future
If Nicole Walker really didn’t die in the warehouse explosion, we might not hear about it until months or years in the future. For one, Arianne Zucker isn’t returning to DOOL anytime soon. The character could face a recast, as they’ve done with Kristen DiMera (now played by Stacy Haiduk) and seemingly EJ DiMera (Trey Baxter). However, recasts are always tricky, and Arianne Zucker is a fan favorite of the show.
However, Nicole possibly could have survived the warehouse explosion in different ways. Maybe she found a way out of the building at the last minute. Maybe someone went in to save her immediately after the explosion and was able to pull her out. If she does survive, she’ll definitely want to be reunited with her daughter.
We also can’t forget about what was going on in the warehouse to begin with, prior to the explosion. Kristen and Xander were housing their mystery patient, who fans are led to believe is EJ back from the dead. Maybe Xander works with Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay) serum that breaks the dead back to life! Maybe Nicole really isn’t dead after all.
