DAYS TUESDAY 12/26 RECAP
"Theo Forgives JJ, and Claire Orders Ciara to Stay Away From Theo"
Tuesday December 26, 2017: Theo learns what happened to him, Eli and Lani stay silent about having sex, and Chad warns Kate.
At the DiMera mansion, Chad demands Kate get out, but Andre states, “If she goes, I go.” Kate offers to leave, but Andre won’t allow it. Andre points out that Gabi’s contract has a trial clause, and she won’t work at DiMera without Kate, so Kate stays. Abby thinks Andre has a point. Chad warns Andre that if Kate causes drama at DiMera then both of them are gone. Chad storms off, and Kate thanks Andre for going to bat for her and won’t forget it. Later, Abby gives Kate and Andre the news that Theo is awake. Their celebration is short-lived when Andre realizes Theo could rat Kate out. Kate leaves, and Abby asks Andre where she went. He reveals she went to see Theo.
In the square, Gabi and Ari spend time with Eli. Eli can’t stop thinking about making love to Lani.
In Theo’s room, everyone is overjoyed when Theo opens his eyes. He responds to Valerie’s questions by blinking his eyes, and is able to squeeze Abe’s hand. Valerie ushers everyone out but Abe to look over Theo. Abe explains he was shot, but Theo doesn’t remember. In the hall, JJ and Lani are overjoyed and embrace, and so do Claire and Ciara. Valerie comes out to give everyone an update. Gabi calls to check on JJ, and he relays the news about Theo. Ciara-Claire-hug-Days-XJJ Valerie informs Claire that Theo is asking for her, but Ciara assumes Valerie meant her and rushes in. Valerie hopes Ciara will not upset Theo, who is in a fragile state. Meanwhile, Lani tells JJ she knows about his suicide attempt. He swears he is no longer suicidal, and that everything he’s asked God for has come true. She explains she went looking for him last night, and found him with Gabi in bed. She was messed up, couldn’t think, ran into Eli and told him that she thought Gabi cheated on him. Eli knows the truth now, but not before he was ugly to Gabi. Lani-JJ-talk-Days-XJJ JJ knows she didn’t do this on purpose, but wonders where they go from here. Before she answers, Valerie interrupts to let them know Theo can see people now. In Theo’s room, he’s surprised to see Ciara back. She feels if she hadn’t left that this wouldn’t have happened, and she has something important to tell him. Claire bursts in before Ciara says anything, and tells him how happy she is that he’s awake. She professes her love to him and apologizes for the fight they had. Days-Theo-JJ-wakeup-Days-XJJ He assures her it is okay. JJ and Lani stop in to see Theo, and he wonders why JJ isn’t talking. JJ cries that he was the one who shot him, but he didn’t know it was him. JJ explains what happened, and Theo tells him it wasn’t JJ’s fault but his own. He doesn’t always understand things when people don’t give him an exact order he can comprehend, and this is on him because JJ didn’t know it wasn’t a gun. JJ leaves Lani and Theo to talk. Abe returns, and learns Theo’s forgiven JJ. Lani asks Theo what else he remembers about that night, because it seemed he was trying to break into a building. He admits he was, so Lani asks if a DiMera asked him to do it. Kate looms and peers in the room. Chad arrives and speaks with Valerie in the hall. She thinks it was his and Kate’s specialist that helped Theo.
Eli returns to his room and strips his bed of the sheets. Gabi finds him and wonders why he’s doing laundry on Christmas. He makes excuses, and she explains she’s here to talk about him and Lani. She knows Lani must have gotten the wrong idea about what she saw. Eli is about to confess what happened, when Gabi spots JJ’s gun on the dresser and cries. He apologizes for not having a chance to turn it in and comforts her. She explains finding JJ in his dress blues, and learning his plan to go to the square and kill himself. Eli knows she saved him, and tells her she is amazing and he’s a jackass. He promises her that she can lean on him, and he’ll always be there for her.
Back in the square, Claire confronts Ciara and warns her to stay away from Theo. Ciara won’t, and refuses to give up a second chance to be with Theo, or let Claire come between them.

She advises him to learn from her mistakes and fight for who you love. Ciara suggests they work together so they both end up happy.

DAYS THURSDAY 12/28 RECAP
"Shawn & Belle Give Chad a Lead on the Saboteur Before Leaving Salem"
Thursday December 28, 2017: Abe reinstates Hope, Ciara's plan to win Theo back fails, and Andre asks Kate to be his date for New Year's Eve.
In their room at the DiMera mansion, Abby checks her RSVPs for their New Year’s party celebrating Chad named CEO of DiMera. Chad pulls her away from her computer and onto the bed, where they have sex. In the living room, Kate tells Andre she confessed the truth to Abe about her involvement in Theo’s shooting, and she is just waiting for Abe to come for her. Andre will do what he can to protect her, and asks her to join him at Abby’s party tonight.
Abe-Rafe-office-Days-XJJ Abe stops by Rafe’s office at the Salem PD to discuss Theo’s case. Rafe knows he is here to ask him to step down so Hope can get her job back, and he understands.
At the hospital, Claire sits with Theo when Tripp calls to tell her that she needs to come in to work at the café. Claire runs into Belle and Shawn as she’s leaving. They inform her that they have to head back to Hong Kong, and they hug goodbye.
Ciara-Tripp-partnership-Days-XJJ In the Horton Square, Tripp tells Ciara he did what she asked. Later, Claire shows up and thanks Tripp for covering for her, and knows she would have lost this job without him. Tripp comes clean and admits she wasn’t needed here today and Ciara got him to call her away from Theo. Claire can’t believe Ciara got him on her side. He confesses he did it because he wanted to be alone with her, and he let his emotions blind him. Claire leaves upset.
Jenn-Hope-pub-talk-Days-XJJ Jenn and Hope meet at the Brady Pub. Hope brings up Abby’s party, and Jenn admits she is going with Eric. She is nervous because Eric may not have moved on from Nicole. It is also a hard day for him due to his driving drunk a few years back and causing the car accident that killed Daniel. Hope gets a message from Rafe asking her to come to the station, so she departs. Later, Jenn gets a call from Eric about their date, which he’s looking forward to.
Ciara-Claire-Theo-room-Days-XJJ Ciara visits with Theo at the hospital, and tells him that she still loves him and they belong together. She reminds him that they’ve been best friends forever and have a stronger bond than most couples. Claire listens at the door as Theo tells Ciara he couldn’t stand it if he lost her, and she is his best friend. However, he loves Claire, and wishes they could all just be friends again. Ciara cries that will never happen. She spots Claire at the door as she storms out. Theo is happy to see Claire, but is tired, so she tells him to rest.
In the park, Shawn and Belle discuss the mysterious hacker trying to take down DiMera, who still hasn’t been identified. Belle gives Chad a call, and interrupts his and Abby’s cuddle time, to inform him that they may have a lead on who is sabotaging DiMera. Shawn believes this isn’t an inside job as Chad thinks, and Belle warns him DiMera could be attacked soon.
Hope arrives at the station and is surprised to see Abe in Rafe’s office. Abe tells Hope that he was wrong to fire her and would like her to return as Salem PD’s commissioner. She thanks Abe and accepts. Abe turns Theo’s case over to her, and she learns about Theo’s statement about the shooting and break in that he was working alone. She also notes Theo only set off the warehouse alarm, he didn’t actually break in, so she thinks the case is closed and not worth spending the tax payer’s money on. Abe thanks her. Later, Shawn and Belle drop by to say goodbye to Rafe and Hope.
At a computer, a woman responds to the RSVP and indicates she’s bringing a guest.
Back at the DiMera mansion, in bed, Abby tells Chad that Andre is going to bring Kate to her party, and that she thinks he has fallen in love with Kate. Abby checks her RSVPs again, and discovers an email she doesn’t recognize in the list. Down in the living room, Kate accepts Andre’s invitation and thinks she might as well go out in style. Abe drops by to see Kate and tells her that she will get away with what she did only because the department is dropping the case against Theo. Abe offers to keep silent about Kate’s part in all of this, on the condition that Theo is not to work for the DiMeras again. Kate and Andre agree.
Ciara returns to the square defeated, and tells Tripp that Theo doesn’t want her because he’s in love with Claire.
