Next Week on ‘Days of Our Lives’ May 20-24: Claire Sets A Fire – Maggie Takes a Drink

Days of Our Lives spoilers show Claire Brady (Olivia Rose Keegan) and Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) are back to old bad habits the week of May 20-24. Also, someone gets a new job that allows them to abuse power. And a secret tryst is exposed to the light of day. All of this goes down next week on DOOL on NBC. Here is what to watch for.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Claire Brady Goes Up in Flames With Rage

Now that Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) dumped her over Haley Chen (Thia Megia), Claire Brady is consumed with anger. We all know what she does when she’s enraged. Yep. Claire unpacks her lighter and piles up a stack of Tripp’s belongings then prepares to set them alight. But will she burn down the house playing with fire on DOOL?

Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) happens to stop by just as Claire Brady is setting up her living room bonfire. That’s not going to help her because it gives him a clue that he shares with his sweetie. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Ben investigates the fire that almost killed Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal). Now they have a hot new suspect.

DOOL Spoilers: Maggie Horton Loses Battle With Bottle

As things unravel for all those she loves, Maggie Horton gives in and takes a drink. At least, she does it in the comfort of her home, say Days of Our Lives. Because Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) finds her passed out cold – still drunk. This is awful, but he’s a help since Brady fought his own demons with alcohol.

And, it doesn’t help that Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) is brushing her off while Maggie Horton grieves losing Holly Jonas. Maybe Brady can help Maggie Horton get to a meeting and clean up her act. For many DOOL fans, this is an unwelcome turn of events since Maggie has been sober for so long.

Chloe Catches Stefan and Gabi in Bed – Nicole and Xander Makes Moves

There’s a lot of sexy action in Salem according to Days of Our Lives spoilers. Stefan DiMera (Brandon Barash) loses his resolve to resist Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus). They wind up back in bed. Then on Friday, May 24, his crush Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) catches them in the act. Whoops. Score one for Team Stabi.

Elsewhere, DOOL spoilers show Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) kisses Brady. That’s another hint this might be Kristen DiMera in disguise and not the real Nicole. Her husband Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) has his eye on Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) doesn’t like that at all.

Days of Our Lives: Mayor Jack and Evil Eve Abuse Their Newfound Power

With Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) now mayor, he wastes no time. DOOL spoilers indicate he fires Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) and installs Eve Donovan (Kassie DePaiva) as the new top cop. So, she gets to work trying to cover for Claire and frames Ben for the cabin blaze.

Claire blames Eve for the Tripp split. So, Eve wants to make it up to her, according to Days of Our Lives spoilers. Plus, Eve is eager to punish Ben for her daughter’s death. Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) finds out he’s got a new boss and also that his live-in nanny Lani Price (Sal Stowers) told him a lie.

Schemers Revealed on DOOL – Search for the Diary Begins

Also next week, May 20-24, on Days of Our Lives, spoilers tell us John Black (Drake Hogestyn) offers to help Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall) find Dr Rolf’s (William Utay) diary so they can try and cure Will Horton (Chandler Massey). Plus, Gabi asks Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) steal Stefan from Chloe.

Next week’s DOOL reveals Xander’s partner. It’s Nicole, but is it really her? Then in a bright spot in what’s been a tragic May sweeps, Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) and Julie Olson Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) celebrate 25 years of wedded bliss. In real life, the pair have been married more than 40 years! Tune in next week on NBC to see all this and more.
