‘Days of our Lives’ Spoilers: Philip Plots Xander’s Death – Secret Partner Makes Demands

Days of our Lives spoilers tease Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) plans to eliminate Xander Cook (Paul Telfer). There’s no love lost between these bitter rivals in the battle of Titan Industries. They’ve each tried to get the other fired from the family company. This week, things heat up as Philip’s secret partner is revealed and Xander’s days in power — and alive — may be numbered on the NBC soap opera.

Days of our Lives Spoilers: Sketchy Philip Kiriakis Wants Xander Cook Gone

DOOL spoilers show Philip Kiriakis is out to rid Titan Industries of Xander Cook. Victor Kiriakis’ (John Aniston) son’s been gone five years but Philip returned to stake his birthright claim as CEO. He’s forcing his father to pick his only son over his nephew on Days of our Lives.

Unfortunately, his return came just as Victor reinstated Xander in the same position. So Victor’s answer was them as co-CEOs. That certainly isn’t what either wanted. Days of our Lives spoilers say Philip Kiriakis doesn’t really want the job — and Xander Cook realized his cousin is not up to the task.

So, he’s scheming and plotting ways to make sure Uncle Vic fires his son. However, Philip’s working just as hard to do the same. After all, his agenda requires fewer eyes and ears on him to succeed. Now Philip Kiriakis ups his game and plans to take care of his Xander Cook problem for good on Days of our Lives.

DOOL Spoilers: Ava Vitali Calling The Shots – Not Philip

Days of our Lives spoilers promise Philip Kiriakis’ secret partner to be none other than the presumed dead Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun). For weeks Philip’s been caught talking to a mystery person on the phone. In fact, he’s come close to being busted.

However, this week we’ll learn the person on the other side of the phone is Ava. Clearly, she has something major on Philip as she’s got him doing her bidding, suggest Days of our Lives spoilers. So, Ava’s using Philip Kiriakis to destroy Xander Cook.

It makes sense since she was one of Dr. Rolf’s not-so-dead patients (Wiliam Utay) behind closed doors at Xander Cook’s Nashville warehouse. Ava likely has some wrongs she needs to right from her warehouse days. The latest Days of our Lives promo shows Philip Kirikais with a  fireplace poker.

He looks poised to take a whack at Xander. Certainly, that would get Xander Cook out of the way. But it could create another issue. After all, the Kiriakis living room is a public place to off Xander. So it’s likely a Days of our Lives dream sequence that Philip Kiriakis imagines after receiving new orders from Ava.

Days of our Lives: Sarah Horton Stands By Xander

Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) stands by her man, hint DOOL spoilers. Of course, she wants to see the best in Xander. Plus, they’ve worked hard to rebuild their relationship. So no doubt, she’d love Xander to see his next dream fulfilled. He’s paid his dues, proved his loyalty to Victor, so now it’s his time to shine.

Since Sarah and Philip are growing close, Days of our Lives know she’s the perfect person to help Xander get the goods on his rival. Philip won’t suspect his sweet stepsister working behind the scenes with his cousin. It certainly will be nice to see Sarah supporting Xander.

However, Days of our Lives spoilers predict it likely causes some strife within the family since they all live under the same roof, and Philip Kiriakis really needs Xander Cook gone to satisfy the demands of Ava Vitali on the NBC sudser.
