Eric Admits to Nicole he has Regrets, Stefan’s Deprogramming Ends With Brady Doing Chest Compressions on Stefan and Getting Arrested

Days of our Lives recap for Tuesday, February 28, 2023.

In today’s Days recap, Chloe returns to Salem, Eric and Nicole admit they’ve been thinking about one another, Tripp, Li and Gabi move in with Wendy, and Stefan goes free.

In the last Days recap, Nicole celebrated 25 years in Salem, Abe and Paulina talked about their future, and Megan explained how she set everyone up to think the three women had died, that Kate’s ashes were a goat, and she used one of the Marlena clones for Marlena’s casket.

At the park, Nicole tells Eric she’s been thinking about him. They met 25 years ago today.

He remembers and admits he’s been thinking of her a lot.

He was telling his dad about the day they met and he’s rooting for them to reunite.

That surprises Nicole, especially since he has a girlfriend. Eric scoffs at that. Sloan.

Eric says she’s not his girlfriend. They’re not seeing one another anymore. He says he betrayed Sloan’s trust trying to help Brady.

“Good on you,” Nicole says. Eric says he and Sloan weren’t serious. Nic says he’s available and Eric says, “And you aren’t.” She admits she’s not.

He gets up to go and she asks why he talked about her. He tells her he’s hurting about his mom. Her phone buzzes. She asks if he has regrets.

“You know I do,” he says. Her phone buzzes again. “It’s him isn’t it.” She sighs and says yes. It could be about Holly.

“Oh, that’s right. You live together like one big happy family.” He asks her if she has ideas on which DiMera stole the orchid.

She says if she did she’d have told him. He takes off.

Tripp visits Wendy at the apartment.

They talk about how they’re coping, how Steve’s not doing well and Li’s arrest.

Tripp offers to move in. He just got a job at University Hospital as an attending doctor.

She congratulates him and they agree he can move in there but they need a third. He asks about Johnny.

She shrugs. He won’t care. Tripp makes her pasta.
