After Kate Ruins Megan’s Plans To Inject Her, She Orders Bo To Kill Her, While Shawn and Belle Lean on Each Other and Paul and Andrew Reunite

Days of our Lives recap for Friday, March 17, 2023.

In today’s Days recap, Kate has a shocking encounter with Bo Brady and Steve and John’s search leads them to an old friend in Hope Brady!

In the last Days recap, Roman extended an olive branch to Lucas, Marlena and Kayla were worried when they realize Kate is missing, and Kate knocked Megan out and bumped into Bo Brady.

In San Francisco, Andrew arrives on Paul’s doorstep to see him. They have some beer and talk about John finding a lead on Megan Hathaway’s location.

Andrew doesn’t say anything about how he helped Steve. It’s not his case and he can’t talk about top-secret information.

Paul gets it but is exasperated. Andrew calls it personal for them both and he can assure him the ISA is doing all they can to get justice for these women.

Paul trusts in him.

Andrew admits he missed Paul, who feels the same. They recap how they met and start making out.

Paul stops things and worries they’re not being proactive. Andrew agrees.

But there’s a chance it could work out.

It’s a chance he wants to take.

Afterward, they gaze happily at each other and kiss again.

Kayla and Marlena are shocked when they open the door to the lab and see Dr. Rolf.

They argue about what kind of person Megan is and Rolf expresses how he’s working with her as he would have the legend Stefano DiMera.

He tells them about his new serum being life-changing and not just for Megan. They question him.

He tells them about the cylinder that he was able to keep someone in for a decade.

Kayla demands to know who. They don’t think it was Stefano.

Megan’s mother caused Bo and Megan to break up and when Megan found out, something broke inside her.

She became obsessed with Bo and desperate to get him back.


“Night night, Golden Girl,” Kate tells Megan after knocking her out and leaving the lab.

She runs into Bo Brady and gasps, asking if it’s him.

He nods, nonchalantly. “Yeah. It’s been a long time.” She comments he’s alive and asks how.

Was it Megan? Did she use the prisms to bring him back?

Bo shrugs. “She succeeded. Look at me.” She is thrilled to see him but sorry he’s imprisoned there.

She has Marlena and Bo’s sister. Bo says,  “Uh. Kayla.” Kate tells him that they need to find them, free them and leave.

Bo says they can’t do that. “Nope.” Kate says she could wake up and they need to get out of there.

Bo tells her they need to go back into the lab. There’s no choice. They need to get her keys.

They head inside and Bo tries to wake Megan up. Kate tells her to get the keys already. “Good job, she’s out cold,” Bo says. When he won’t look for the keys, Kate’s confused.

Bo tells Kate to shut up and stay where she is while he tries to gently wake Megan up.
