Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Paul Telfer’s Run Ends
Telfer took to social media on January 29 to signal that his time as Xander has ended on DOOL for the time being. As Xander comes and goes often on the show, Telfer could be back portraying the hunky bad boy in no time. After all, now that Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) is coming back to Salem, he plays a part in this!
Telfer’s latest run on the show began on January 3, though he also appeared during Nicole’s “death” and EJ DiMera (previously James Scott) resurrection. While there hasn’t yet been any news on whether or not the character will be back on Days of Our Lives, chances are pretty high that he will. After all, fans really do love Xander.

DOOL Spoilers: Xander Cook Steals Dr. Rolf’s Diary
Xander’s plans pretty much fell through on Days of Our Lives. He basically gave Jack to Eve Donovan, as long as she promised to give him top-secret intel on DiMera Enterprises. He wanted back in with the Kiriakis family, and he felt that one great way to do this would be by handing over this info. However, Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) had to make him CEO first.
This ultimately fell through, as Vic didn’t fall for his trap. Instead, Victor hired Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) as CEO, something that Xander Cook didn’t particularly like. He even tried to sleep with Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) for information he could use over the Kiriakis family. However, Leo found out he drugged him and didn’t sex him up after all, so Xander didn’t get any information out of it.
Possibly the only two good things that happened while Xander was in town this time was with Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and Eve. First, Xander was able to hurt Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) after he discovered that he slept with Sarah. Lastly, Xander found Dr. Wilhelm Rolf’s (William Utay) diary which Eve had hidden.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Xander Has Leverage
Originally, Xander didn’t want to leave town empty-handed on DOOL, which would signal a total loss. However, when he gets his hands on Dr. Rolf’s diary, he realizes he can leave town and lie low for a while. During this time, he can figure out just how he wants to use Eve, now that he has all this leverage over her.
In the diary, Dr. Rolf wrote about a potential serum that could possibly help bring Jack’s memories back. Of course, this is the last thing that Eve wants on Days of Our Lives. She wants Jack all to herself — and she wants Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) to hurt.
Now that Xander Cook has the diary, he can make Eve do whatever he wants. He now has leverage over her, and they both know it. Since he’s now left town, just when will he return to Salem to cause even more chaos? You can watch DOOL every weekday afternoon on NBC.
