‘Days of our Lives’ Spoilers: Jake’s Crazy Ex Gwen Pops Up – Confirms He’s Not Stefan?

Days of our Lives spoilers introduce a new character Gwen Rizczech (Emily O’Brien) to the mix, played by Emily O’Brien, an Emmy-nominated soap actress. It looks like Ron Carlivati went all out to hire superstar talent for the important role of Jake Lambert’s (Brandon Barash) nutty ex-girlfriend.

Days of our Lives Comings & Goings: Meet Jake’s Ex-Girlfriend Gwen Rizczech

Next week, we’ll get a gander at Gwen Rizczech, who’s currently roomies with crazy Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) at Bayview. Already, Jake’s worried about Gwen as she may be the source of some of the drama in his life. However, Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) is sure he’s Stefan.

Days of our Lives spoilers expect a big splash from Gwen who’ll turn up about the time that Gabi’s kidnapped. So, did the thugs terrorizing Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) about Jake snatch Gabi. Or was it deranged ex-GF Gwen who did the deed?

We know from Days of our Lives spoilers that Gabi gets out of jail, and then goes missing. At the same time, Ben goes out searching for her while Jake goes looking for Gwen. It looks like Gwen Rizczech hits Salem the same time that Claire talks her way out of Bayview.

Who Is Emily O’Brien – New DOOL Actress

The powers that be at Days of our Lives chose a seriously talented actress to play Jake’s ex Gwen Rizczech. Her name is Emily O’Brien, and she’s a three-time Daytime Emmy nominated actress. She got three noms for her work on Young and the Restless as Jana Hawkes.

O’Brien’s an English actress with a long resume of video game voice acting, after her Y&R soap run, and also British TV and movie work. Now, she’s at Days of our Lives as Gwen but her prior soap work is relevant to this new role. On Y&R, she was a devious murderess.

Her character, Jana, was obsessed with serial killers and had a wild streak. She faked her death and got into a wild Nazi treasure hunting plot. So, Emily O’Brien should fit right in with the wild plots at Days of our Lives. There’s no telling what they’ll do with Gwen Rizczech, Jake, and Gabi.

Does Gwen’s Introduction Confirm He’s Not Stefan on Days of our Lives?

Bringing in an ex-girlfriend for Jake begs one big question. If she’s his ex, does that confirm that Jake’s not Stefan DiMera? Of course, it’ll be a big bummer for Gabi. By adding Gwen to the cast, it solidifies Jake’s insistence that he’s not her dead husband. But, is Gwen part of the scheme?

Days of our Lives loves convoluted plots. So, don’t assume that bringing in Gwen means he’s not Stefan. Remember, Gabi thinks that Jake’s got falsely implanted memories. If so, then his past relationship with Gwen Rizczech could be part of those. He still may be Stefan but we have to wait and see.

For now, get ready to meet Gwen on June 5 on Days of our Lives. We’ll first see her in scenes with Claire at Bayview, then on the loose running around. You can bet Gwen Rizczech and Gabi won’t see eye to eye when it comes to Jake, so get ready for lots of drama there.
