Things are heating up on Days of our Lives while more and more secrets are revealed.

Days of our Lives has felt stagnant for months, as work written by fill-in writers aired thanks to 2023's writers' strike. However, stories are finally starting to pick up and move, while plots take myriad directions. There isn't a better time than now to get in on the action.

Who Is Everett?

Who Is Everett? Thanks to Blake Berris' intriguing performance, we are all on the edge of our seats, waiting to find out what is really going on with EverBobby Lynch. The man calling himself Everett has been switching to his Bobby persona before we can blink since he signed the name Robert Stein on his divorce papers.

As Everett, this man can barely remember his father, but Jada knows that the man she married was raised by his father because his mother abandoned them. While this seems like a simple soap case of dissociative identity disorder, we know there is more to this story than meets the eye -- especially since he looks just like Nick Fallon -- and we can't wait to find out what it is.

Baby Switch Surprises

Baby Switch Surprises DAYS found a way to prolong its baby switch reveal by coming clean with the DNA switch first. Nicole's surprise miracle pregnancy was as soapy as could be from the start. She was living with E.J. but got high on tainted biscuits one morning and slept with Eric. When Eric's girlfriend Sloan learned the truth, she made sure prenatal DNA tests named E.J. as the father and not Eric.

Flash forward a year, and Nicole thinks her son died, but he is being raised as Eric and Sloan's adopted child -- and now, E.J. knows the whole truth, including that Jude is not his son. He is keeping that secret to hang on to Nicole while Sloan is keeping her secret to hang on to Eric, but the truth is bound to come out soon. When it does, it will be explosive.

Teen Romance

Teen Romance While it was jarring to see a new Tate just as the character was finally freed from a halfway house to pursue Holly, we have to admit that these two on-screen teens, played by young adults Leo Howard and Ashley Puzemis, somehow work. They both have that carefree teen attitude and talk like 21st-century kids talk.

Holly and Tate are a throwback to old-school teen soap romances -- and even Romeo and Juliet -- with their families wanting to keep them apart. Watching them navigate that problem with cell phone finesse keeps us smiling as we wonder what mess the prom will hold.

Kristen and Alex

Kristen and Alex Forget Theresa and Alex -- we are here for Kristen and Alex. They have taken each other and the audience by surprise and find their fake attraction to make others jealous is actually real. Kristen and Alex may claim they want Brady and Theresa, respectively, but their libido tells us -- and them -- otherwise.

Besides, when Alex learns that Theresa is behind the plot to make him believe he is Victor's son, he will want nothing to do with Ms. Donovan, anyway. Will Brady be there to pick up the pieces?


We can't help it. We love Leo. Yes, he seems to love money above all else, but we know there is a kind heart beating down there somewhere. Delivering a baby and finding what he thought was true love proved that. Leo never fails to entertain as he babbles on and delivers zany one-liners in the spirit of former Salem fashion designer Calliope Jones. In fact, we are sure that Calliope would have loved life as his personal shopper. Never change, Leo. Never change.
