Is Nicole Alive on ‘Days of Our Lives’?

Days of Our Lives spoilers point to Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) not being herself these days. This has fans asking if she’s alive or dead and someone took her place. For someone that hates Xander Cook (Paul Telfer), she’s awfully chummy with him these days. Since her surprise resurrection, nearly everything Nicole did was totally unlike her.

Then fans got to see her laughing evilly with Xander on the Monday, May 20 episode. So the big question now is what is up with Nicole and why is she acting so awful? Here’s some hints at what comes soon for this person that looks like Nicole Walker on DOOL on NBC.

What Happened to Nicole Walker on Days of Our Lives?

Recent Nicole DOOL spoilers show more dishonesty from the returned-from-the-dead character. She and Xander Cook are neck deep in a conspiracy to ruin the lives of those in Salem. Nicole Walker just said she hopes that Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) falls off the wagon. That happens soon. So, obviously, those plans are working like a charm. But there’s one problem. Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) overheard them talking and you can bet she’ll be curious. However, that doesn’t mean she’ll figure things out anytime soon.

Days of Our Lives spoilers say this Friday, a major secret is revealed. It might be about Xander and partner Nicole. Then again, there are so many secrets in Salem right now, that it may be about the diary, Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan), or Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash). But maybe this secret is a tidbit about Xander Cook and resurrected Nicole Walker. Surely, their devious plan needs outed before they hurt anyone else. So what happened to Nicole to make her act this way?

Is Nicole Really Kristen on Days of Our Lives?

The looming DOOL spoilers question is whether Nicole is really Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk). Official spoilers from She Knows Soaps last month said Haiduk was back as Kirsten DiMera soon. But, in fact, the character might be back with Arianne Zucker in the role for now. On Monday’s episode, “Nicole” called Holly Jonas (Harlow and Scarlett Mallory) a “whiny little brat” and said she doesn’t “give a damn” about her. Those shocking words can’t be anything the real Nicole Walker would say.

But that is something that Kristen DiMera would say. She’s not exactly warm and fuzzy. Plus, Kristen is not a mother, so her cackling over the faked death of a child seems like something she would do. Now, what’s very likely in play is that Kristen DiMera took Nicole Walker’s place in Salem. Since both were supposedly blown up in the warehouse last year, both could have been saved. It’s doubtful it’s Kristen in a mask. That’s not a plot device Days of Our Lives uses. Way back in 1996, someone put on one to look like Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo). That’s about it.

DOOL Spoilers: Kristen DiMera Had Lookalike Plastic Surgery?

So, fans want to know is Nicole alive on  Days of Our Lives. Just because the soap doesn’t ordinarily do mask plots (although General Hospital loves them), doesn’t mean they will not. Maybe the NBC sudser is going with a Scooby Doo reveal. Perhaps Kristen was injured in the explosion and when Xander pulled her out of the rubble, they cooked up this revenge scheme and had surgery done on her face to look like Nicole Walker. That means it could be Arianne Zucker playing both roles from now on.

That is more in line with DOOL spoilers history. Because Eileen Davidson and then Stacy Haiduk played both Kristen DiMera and Susan Banks. So, the big twist might be that Kristen and Nicole both survived the explosion, but only one is running amok in Salem. There’s no confirmation yet, but it seems very likely Nicole is alive and held captive by Xander and his partner Kristen. After all, they can’t have the real Nicole Walker on the loose while they’re wreaking havoc in her name around town, right? For now, it seems their secret is safe, but you never know what will happen next.
