Here’s what went down, the takeaways, and what comes next on the NBC soap.

Days of Our Lives: Brady Black Buys a Divorce – Xander Cook Plays Hardball

He wants the big prize.

Finally, Brady Black relents and offers an executive position at Titan. On Tuesday’s Days of Our Lives, pushy Brady Black demands that he hand over the recorded murder confession. Xander won’t because he doesn’t trust Brady. Smart move. Xander Cook locks it back up in his secret stash place where he’s also keeping Dr Rolf’s diary.
