Days of Our Lives spoilers suggest the race for mayor of Salem ends with a surprise outcome. Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) and Abe Carver (James Reynolds) both have been plagued with scandals in the final days of campaigning. And Melinda Trask (Laura Kai Chen) was ruined weeks ago by the Haley scandal. But with Jack’s latest rape accusation making the rounds, it is confused voters in Salem that head to the polls. The election and the fallout are about to heat up this week on the NBC soap.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Jack Deveraux’s Dirty Tactics
DOOL spoilers remind Jack Deveraux entered the race after discrediting former candidate DA Melinda Trask. He confronted her with the accusation that her sister Haley Chen (Thia Megia ) was an undocumented immigrant. So, Melinda withdrew from the election with that scandal looming around her. However, that was not Jack’s only dirty campaign tactic on Days of Our Lives. In a last-ditch attempt to distance himself in the polling numbers, he turned his attack on Abe Carver.
Jack Deveraux and Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) flashed a picture Abe’s assistant, Sheila Watkins (Tionne T-Boz Watkins) in a lip lock for all the town to see including Abe’s girlfriend Valerie Grant (Vanessa A Williams). Although the kiss was innocent, no one including Valerie cares to hear Abe’s explanation. So, that kiss might have cost Abe Carver his re-election on Days of Our Lives.

DOOL Spoilers: JJ Deveraux Implodes Jack Deveraux’s Campaign
Disgusted by his father’s antics against Abe Carver, JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) makes a bold move that implodes his father’s campaign. Days of Our Lives spoilers revealed JJ tells the press that Abe’s behavior might be inappropriate (although consensual) but Jack is the one in this race that actually forced himself on a woman. He falls short of saying the words rape but the implication is made.
The super sleuth press is quick to figure out JJ was referring to Jack’s rape of his then-wife Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) back in the late 1980s. The clean slate candidate doesn’t recall his past actions. However, when Kayla is confronted by a reporter to confirm if she was raped by Jack Deveraux, she collaborated the accusation. In essence, JJ’s outburst severely damaged if not destroyed his father’s chances of winning. But then something miraculous happened for the Blank Slate campaign.

Haley Chen Accusations Help Jack in Eleventh Hour
With both named candidates now showing disturbing tarnishes to their character, it seemed like anyone (or no one’s game). But then Eve got race-saving evidence in her hand, remind DOOL spoilers. Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) handed over evidence against Haley Chen (Thia Megia). That allowed Eve to blackmail Haley into a public confession. With the polls still open, Haley came clean in town square.
She even said that Eve and Jack were right about her. That helped their campaign in the last hours of the race. And next week, Jack Deveraux supposedly wins the race. However, with tactics that shady, how can it last, ask Days of Our Lives spoilers?
DOOL Spoilers: New Mayor Fires Hope Brady
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) is fired as Commissioner of Police the day after the results of the election are announced. This certainly would suggest that Abe Carver lost his bid for re-election. It is no secret the former DA is not a fan of Hope Brady. She feels Hope was incompetent in her role as head cop.
With the cartel’s reign of terror on Salem coupled with the tragic ending to the search for missing Holly Jonas (Scarlett and Harlow Mallory), it makes sense that the new mayor will want heads to roll. It seems that Jack fires Hope, likely for not taking harsher action against Haley – plus the dead toddler debacle. But in the promo above, you can see Melinda has a gun. Is she going to assassinate the newly-elected mayor on the NBC soap?
