Does Holly Jonas Die on Days of Our Lives?

Days of Our Lives this week has a tragic death scene for little Holly Jonas (Harlow and Scarlett Mallory). But is it real? Does Holly die on Days of Our Lives? All of Salem, except for two villains, seem to think the kid is dead. With Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) fresh back from the dead herself, this plot twist seems so cruel. So, here’s the truth about the fate of the adorable little girl.

DOOL: Holly Jonas Goes Over a Cliff, Then Explodes

The NBC soap this week takes the word overkill literally. The little girl who’s now in the muscular arms of Xander Cook (Paul Telfer), winds up in a car chase and crash. Days of Our Lives Holly Jonas is in a van hurtling down the road. Then, the vehicle careens off the road and down an embankment. That’s pretty bad. But then, the van explodes. So, it looks like the toddler died a terrible death. But did she?

Of the four daytime soaps on TV now, DOOL is the one that seems to tally up the highest body count. Of course, they also resurrect so many people that you’d think Salem was populated by The Walking Dead. So, what does that mean for the fate of Holly? Did the show really kill Holly Jonas off? And if the tyke did lose her life, who is to blame?

Days of Our Lives: Is Holly Jonas Dead or Alive?

Official DOOL spoilers confirm the good news that Holly Jonas is not dead. The fireball car accident will not take her life. However, the scene was set to trick everyone in town into thinking the little girl died. Right after the wreck, Nicole, Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) come upon the scene. They show up in time to see the explosion.

Days of Our Lives spoilers say Nicole is devastated. She assumes it’s the cartel that snatched her daughter and is responsible for her toddler’s death. Nicole lashes out at Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) and Eric Brady over her daughter’s death. But she’s way off the mark. It’s Xander to blame for the “death” of the child, but there’s no death. It’s all a scam.

DOOL Spoilers: Why Fake Holly Jonas’ Death?

Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate that Xander and his yet unseen partner are responsible for the pretend death. Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini) is also in on this and is well aware Holly is still alive. However, the faux death sets the scene for Ted to get what he wants most – Hope and her husband to split. The apparently fatal accident triggers Hope’s firing as commissioner.

Unfortunately, she takes the blame for Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) going rogue. That costs her a job and pushes her over the line to dump him. The fatality also sends Nicole off the rails as well as Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) who might fall off the wagon. Xander seems to be after doing maximum damage to Nicole. And his secret partner seems to be targeting Maggie and others.

So, rest assured – Holly Jonas does not die on DOOL. Her captors tuck her safely away while all of Salem grieves her loss. How long Xander Cook and his partner allow this lie to fester remains to be seen on the NBC sudser.
