Wednesday, March 3, 2020: On today’s full episode recap of Days of our Lives, Sarah finds Xander with a woman, Kayla gets on Steve to forgive Bonnie, and Bonnie finds Gabi and Abigail in a compromising position.
In his room at Salem Inn, Xander has a seamstress on her knees in front of him while she gets his kilt adjusted. He complains that she’s rough. She says, “It’s just a little prick.” Xander replies, “Hmm not so little.” Sarah walks in and demands to know what’s going on. The seamstress explains what she’s doing and Sarah laughs. She wonders where he’d need a kilt. “Haggis night at the pub?” Xander’s face falls. “It’s for the wedding.” Sarah feels bad and he tells her he asked Odelia (Adriana Sevan), Maggie’s seamstress to fit it for him since he hadn’t worn it in a while. He asks, “Could you just forget you saw it?” Sarah says that’s not going to happen. Odelia goes and Xander notices that Sarah doesn’t have a wedding dress. He notices she’s cranky. Sarah reminds him of what she walked in on. She doesn’t have a dress because she ran into Chloe who made her realize she’s a Titan bride, not a Gabi Chic one. She’s still looking. Xander says he’s honoring his family by wearing the kilt, though he hasn’t been in touch with most. Xander gives her a lingering kiss and they close the door. He asks if she’s ever wondered what a man wears under his kilt.
