On today’s full episode recap of Days of our Lives, Allie feels terrible about accusing Tripp of rape, Nicole makes Ava an offer that shocks Rafe, and Claire runs into Charlie.
At the hospital, when Nicole offers Ava to stay at Rafe’s house, Rafe asks her into the hall and questions why she offered his house. Nicole thinks she’d be safe with him from Charlie. It wouldn’t be forever. She reminds him he terrorized her and she’s still having flashbacks and hallucinations. Rafe reminds Nicole of some of Ava’s nastier deeds. “Kidnapping, blackmail, making planes fall out of the sky,” he says. Nicole thinks Ava has changed. Rafe says the extra bedroom is Duke’s (the plush toy) room. Nicole laughs. Rafe starts to crack. She keeps up the pressure and Rafe reminds her that Ava’s a mob boss who has loads of minions who can guard her body. Still, he’s closer to saying yes, when Nic reveals she’s trying to get Ava away from her mob family.
Claire finds Charlie at the park and she learns that the DA dropped all charges against him. Claire is astounded when he lies that he slept with Allie, but didn’t rape her. Claire’s disgusted and calls him a liar, but he insists he’s not. Charlie lies that Allie called him over. “I guess she decided that she liked me better.” He knew she was wasted but went over to her apartment. “And assaulted her,” Claire whispers. Charlie says Allie came on to him. “It was her fault,” he says, calling it a one-night-stand. He couldn’t tell her before. He tells Claire he’s head over heels in love with her. He asks her to tell him she loves him, too. Claire tears up. She calls him disgusting and says she’ll never believe him. Allie remembered what happened to her that night. Charlie snaps and grabs Claire and she tries to break free.
