Days of our Lives recap for Thursday, January 26, 2023.
In today’s Days recap, Allie opens up to Alex about Chanel, while Chanel and Johnny discuss their lingering feelings, and Nicole slaps Sloan across the face before getting drugged.
In the last Days recap, EJ fired Li Shin, Stefan spiked EJ’s mimosa and Wendy apologized to Gabi and gave her a pep talk about Stefan that gave Gabi the idea to knock Stefan out.
Johnny looks for Wendy at Chanel’s but since she’s not there, he offers to lend an ear if she wants to talk. She opens up about getting home and finding Alex there and Allie asking for another threesome.
Johnny tries to downplay their almost-kiss but she knows what they were about to do. She wanted to kiss him. She loves Allie and is committed to her but it doesn’t negate that she feels attraction for him.
She loved him once, too. He asks what they’ll do about it. They agree they’ll be careful around each other.
Allie walks in on Alex lifting free weights in the Kiriakis living room.
She dropped her kid off to see Will.
She apologizes for last night, asking him for a threesome out of anger at Chanel.
She tells him what happened between them.
She doesn’t want to cut her brother out of her life and also doesn’t want Chanel to betray her.
Alex reminds her that Chanel chose her over Johnny. He calls her beautiful, smart and funny and way hotter than her brother.
She laughs. He calls her the hottest girl he’s ever been with. She feels better.
At Brady’s pub, Nicole calls Sloan pathetic for trying to make her jealous by talking about finding Eric’s phone in her bed.
Nicole calls her a “slut” and Sloan claps her hands and snarks about how she’s not progressive to slut shame.
Nicole pretends she doesn’t care who Sloan sleeps with but Sloan knows better.
She asks why she cares. Is it because she has the hots for him still?
She’s with EJ. Nicole says she knows nothing about her or EJ.
Nicole slaps Sloan across the face and Sloan hits her back.
Eric gets between them and Nicole thinks he’s acting out of character because his mother died.
She is sorry for his loss and takes off. Brady asks if Sloan’s okay. She’s fine but could use a mimosa.
They head inside and eat. Sloan hates to admit that she was jealous and provoked Nicole.
Gabi apologizes to a knocked-out Stefan and tells him he’ll thank her someday soon.
She drags him to the tunnel and hears EJ’s voice asking if Stefan poured the champagne.
She drags Stefan outside and EJ asks why she’s there.
He’s not happy. Stefan won’t submit to deprogramming. He loathes her.
Gabi won’t stop until he’s hers again.
EJ drags her to the front door and she leaves while he runs upstairs calling his brother’s name.
Gabi goes around the back and opens the door to the tunnel and takes him down there.
Nicole returns home and tells EJ that she went to give Eric condolences and Sloan flew in on her broom to brag that she was sleeping with Eric.
EJ grabs the mimosas and hands the one meant for him to Nicole.
He tells her they were meant to toast to him and Stefan being co-CEOs but he left.
EJ toasts to her and Eric moving on.
Nicole drinks up and bitches about Sloan gloating that Eric was another notch on her bedpost “and then she made lewd insinuations about us.”
Nicole gets more champagne and EJ tries to stop her.
She drops her glass and touches her head.
She’s feeling the drug and moves to EJ and tries to kiss him.
He pushes her away and gets her upstairs to her room. She apologizes. She usually holds her liquor better.
He tells her not to feel sorry. He kisses her hand as she lies down and calls Eric a fool who never should have let her go.
Sexy base music plays as Nicole says she doesn’t need Eric anymore.
Not when she has EJ. She kisses him and they start making out.
