Days of Our Lives Monday, October 9, 2017 Hope continues to question Ben, and in flashbacks, we see him recalling a visit to him at Bayview, where Clyde used the alias Jordan Ridgeway. Thus Ben expected to see his sister, but instead was shocked to see his dad. Once alone, Clyde claimed he was going to get Ben out of there, and be reunited with his son, Thomas, who would make a better father than Chad DiMera. Ben refutes that, saying no he would not, and how could he ever tell Thomas about killing 3 people. Clyde claims it wasn't 3, just two, Serena & Paige. You did not kill Will. (And both forgot about the woman who delivered Thomas, and Ben shot). Ben recalls exactly how he did it, talks of the tie, pulling it tighter and tighter, as he watched Will getting all ability to breathe, and die. He comments sadly that Will was his friend. Clyde repeats that Will is not dead, that tho it appeared that way, not everything is as it looks, but the guard comes in, time is up. Clyde leaves, will tell Ben all when he returns to spring him out of there. That is all Ben can recall, Hope notes that Gabi found Will's lifeless body, he was dead, morgue, casket, funeral, buried. Ben is taken away. Steve & Kayla are in the Pub, music playing, they dance. This is so nice. When over, they talk, about Joey, and then Tripp. They discuss whether to tell Joey about the wedding disruption, decide not to keep things from him just because bad, then she wants to know why Tripp did not come to wedding. Steve evades at first, but she knows her husband, figures he told Tripp not to come, as Kayla was rather fragile and upset about Joey. Steve admits he did that, Kayla gets ticked, wants him to stop trying to read her, and speak for her what's on her mind. She acknowledges that, for now, it is hard for her to talk about Tripp, but that he is Steve's son, part of their family, and thus doesn't want him left out. All is well there. Claire & Theo return home, hearing music instead the apt. Tripp is playing one of Claire's tapes, singing along a bit. They go in, Chatter with each other. Tripp compliments Claire, etc. Theo sort of hangs in the background, but when Claire goes to change, he starts aking Tripp why he did not come to the wedding, as he thinks it was because he wanted to take Claire, and she was already Theo's date. Nope, Tripp had amother reason, doesn't matter, thinks Claire is a great gal, she is Theo's girlfriend, he did help her out as she had given him some great advice once, they are friends. zzzzzzzzzzzzz Over at the Kmansion, the bickering between Sonny & Brady continues, Vic angrily tells them to knock off acting like children. Both guys feel they are right, Vic makes no choice between them as Paul comes in, tells how Hope learned Clyde visited Ben. Vic thinks they both should get down to the cop shop, they leave. Brady stews, fidgets, yaps about Nicole, who has not come home, nor answered his text. probably driving, will be home soon. Vic suggests she may have gone to see Eric. Nope, Brady is firm about that. Paul & Sonny get the story from Hope, so now only Clyde knows the rest of it. They want to go see him, but are sure he won't talk to any of them. However Sonny figures he knows someone to whom Clyde will speak. But at the farmhouse, there is Eric & Nicole, going over all the history between them. He left the Center as he would not fire her, has loved her always. left Salem originally because of her, how he saved her & Holly from, Xander. How he doesn't want to come between her & Brady, but he just cannot be around her, loves her too much. She is all teary, he is somber, , eventually telling her to leave now, get in her car, go, never turn back. They are very close, he is very intense telling her to go, or he may do something he will regret. What is that, she asks, as she leans forward the 2 in. between them, they kiss.
