In the Tuesday, September 15, 2021, full episode recap of Days of our Lives, Ben and Ciara visit Oak Alley, Bonnie reveals all to Justin, and Nicole lies to Rafe. If you missed out, Soaps Spoilers has you covered with Tuesday’s Days recap: Gabi and Jake manipulated Brady.
(Note: Today I decided that because the ratings are so low on this show, and this section is the least read, though I still love Days of our Lives, and still plan on watching the show from 1-1:30 daily and tweeting about it on Twitter, I’ll be recapping Bold and the Beautiful, and then watching the second half of Days. Feel free to join me on Twitter or read the B&B recaps which will be posted at 2 PM EST!)
At SPD, Bonnie’s shocked that Justin has agreed to be her lawyer. Rafe goes and she reminds him of the Buddy Bucks scam in 2003. He recalls a scratch-and-win ticket for a million dollars but that there was no winner. Bonnie explains that Harrison Lord worked there and kept the winning ticket for himself. Justin knows it would have been illegal for him to cash it in since he was an employee. She flashes to Harrison giving her the ticket and telling her to put it somewhere safe. She hid it in her bra and he and Calista laughed. They explain that she needs to get the payout. They’ll all get a cut. Bonnie felt bad so Harrison sent Calista to get some burgers while he worked on Bonnie. She worried they’d get caught. Once Calista left, Harrison hit on Bonnie and when she rebuffed him, he grabbed her arm hard and when she struggled, he ripped her blouse. He talked about her liking it rough and she pulled a gun out. He came at her again and the gun went off. Harrison was blown away. Calista returned and yelled, “Bonnie, what have you done?” Bonnie sobs as she tells Justin that she killed the man. She ran off and Calista never came after her. She didn’t cash the ticket because it was blood money. Besides, it literally had blood all over it. She flushed it down the toilet. She talks about the past, David’s death and that Justin has forgiven so much. She’s sorry. She admits she didn’t invite Calista to the wedding. She lied. She thought he’d be obligated to turn her in if he learned the truth. She talks about Calista bringing the gun that killed Harrison and details what Calista was going to do. She refused to steal money from Justin so stole Xander’s. It was probably dirty, anyway. She did it all to save her future with him. She admits she gave Calista the money but she wanted revenge and pulled the gun on her. Justin’s shocked that the gun went off. He can see it was an accident. She tells him about Mimi killing her husband David with a fireplace poker. Justin is shocked she spent all those years in the pokey for a crime she never committed. She begs him never to tell anyone. He’s overcome with her generosity and loves her. She cries. He knows it’ll be a hard fight in court but he still intends on marrying her. They embrace, happily.

At Basic Black, Chloe asks if Nicole has feelings for Rafe. Nic refuses to say. He’s her friend and Ava’s man. There’s no way she’ll make a play for him. Chloe asks if she’s concerned for her safety due to Ava’s crazy history but Nicole says it’s not that. “It’s about doing the right thing.” She turns the tables on her pal, knowing Philip has a reason to be jealous of Brady since Chloe admitted her feelings for Brady when he was with Kristen.

Gabi and Jake tell Philip that Brady has been going around employees and saying that it’s only a matter of time before Chloe comes to her sense and dumps Philip. Philip tells them about finding Brady in bed with Chloe and he thinks Brady set it all up. Philip walks away in anger and Gabi and Jake pat themselves on the back for manipulating him.
