Days of Our Lives Update
Update written by Joseph
Justin joins Bonnie in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion, where Bonnie informs him that she has the most wonderful news. Bonnie announces that Nancy and Clyde are getting married today. Bonnie adds that it’s all because of her, revealing to Justin that when Nancy’s marriage crashed and burned, she set her up on a dating app which is where she met Clyde. Bonnie says she’s so thrilled for Nancy since she was so crushed by Craig cheating on her with a man while now she has found someone to make her happy for the rest of her life.
Chloe begs Craig to talk Nancy out of this wedding. Craig argues that she won’t listen to him after he broke her heart. Chloe asks what he thinks is going to happen when Nancy becomes Mrs. Clyde Weston and calls it the biggest mistake of her life. Craig understands her concerns but says she can’t put him in the middle because it’s not his place to tell Nancy who she should or shouldn’t marry. Craig declares that he’s sorry but he just won’t do it.
Nancy and Clyde talk in the town square. Nancy informs him that Brady, Chloe, and Craig are going to meet them at City Hall. Clyde decides they are all set then. Nancy thought her life was over until Clyde came along and gave her hope. Nancy tells Clyde that she loves him and can’t wait to be his wife as they kiss.
Rafe can’t believe Clyde’s alibi was bogus. Jada confirms there’s no doubt that he doctored the footage. Rafe credits Jada as they would’ve never known without her. Jada thanks him but points out that Rafe is the one who told her to go over everything again. Rafe declares that it looks like Chad was right about Leo being framed for Abigail’s murder, he was just wrong about who was doing it. Rafe decides they need to issue an arrest warrant for Clyde fast but by the book. Rafe wants to assure Chad that his wife’s killer is not going to slip through their hands again. Rafe then makes a call.
Chad goes to the DiMera Mansion and removes a gun from the safe. Chad loads the gun and puts it in his pocket but EJ arrives and asks what he’s doing there.
Chloe pleads with Craig to go talk to Nancy and tell her she can’t go through with this wedding. Brady suggests Chloe take a minute but Chloe points out that they don’t have a minute as they are due at City Hal. Craig argues that Chloe isn’t hearing him while Chloe complains that Craig wasn’t hearing them when they warned him about Leo. Chloe asks what if they stopped trying and then Craig would be broke and married to Leo. Craig is grateful for them caring enough to tell him the truth even though he didn’t want to listen. Chloe says they did it because they love him and she knows he loves Nancy, so he needs to go talk sense in to her. Craig declares that Nancy has made her choice, adding that Clyde has paid his debt to society and is staying on that side of the law.
Justin tells Bonnie that this marriage is a bit sudden. Bonnie asks why wait when you find the one. Bonnie questions if he doesn’t agree. Justin responds that in this case, he definitely does not agree. Justin questions how Bonnie could be excited about Nancy marrying a criminal like Clyde Weston. Justin adds that he believes Clyde had Sonny stabbed several years ago as a way to send Victor a message during a business deal, but no one could ever prove Clyde was involved. Justin says he’s sorry to rain on Bonnie’s parade but declares that this wedding is nothing to celebrate.
Clyde tells Nancy that he can’t wait to be her husband. Clyde says he’s one lucky man to have her in his life and calls her his miracle. Clyde talks about not thinking he had a chance of meeting anyone on the dating app, but she took a chance on him and he’s forever grateful. Nancy is so glad she did because every day keeps getting better. Clyde calls this the best one yet. Nancy says she has to go make herself beautiful and she will see him soon. Nancy walks away. Clyde then turns around to see Belle in the town square.
Chad tells EJ that he just came to pick something up and now he has it, so he’s going. EJ stops him and asks if he’s alright. Chad tells EJ to get out of his way. EJ asks if there’s any news on Leo. Chad responds that Leo is innocent. EJ questions what he means. Chad then reveals that Leo wasn’t the one who killed his wife, it was Clyde Weston, and now he’s going to make damn sure he pays.
Clyde greets Belle and asks where she’s off to in such a hurry. Belle says it’s none of his business. Clyde asks her how EJ is doing. Belle responds that as far as she knows, he’s fine. Clyde sends his best and says he’s in a hurry himself as he’s going to the City Hall to get married. Clyde informs Belle that he and Nancy are getting married. Belle is surprised and questions it happening now. Clyde declares that his second chance comes tonight.
Chloe argues that Clyde is a career criminal and questions if he didn’t just get out of prison and pick up where he left off. Craig points out that Clyde is making an honest living at the Brady Pub. Chloe argues that he’s probably dealing drugs out of the Pub. Craig laughs that off, reminding her that Roman runs the place. Chloe questions why Craig is being so easy on Clyde. Chloe complains that Clyde is a psycho, who abused his own children and their mother. Chloe asks what if he does the same thing to Nancy. Chloe talks about Clyde beating Ben so badly that it turned him into a serial killer. Craig says that was a long time ago. Craig admits that he doesn’t think Clyde is good for Nancy, but Nancy has made her choice and Clyde has shown no sign of going back to the other side so they can’t judge and have to be fair. Chloe argues that Nancy barely knows Clyde and thinks it’s too soon for her to be marrying anyone. Craig points out that Nancy is very happy right now so he doesn’t want to deprive her by being negative. Craig declares that all they have to do is be positive and show her their support.
Justin calls Alex and promises to talk to Sonny and try to smooth things over. Bonnie asks what that was about. Justin informs her that Alex and Sonny got in a big fight over Titan, so now he has to go call Sonny. After Justin exits, Nancy rushes in to ask Bonnie for help getting ready for her wedding. Bonnie agrees to work her magic and transform her to the most beautiful bride.
Rafe calls Chad and leaves a message, giving him a heads up that Clyde Weston’s alibi for Abigail’s murder fell apart so they just got the arrest warrant and are going to pick him up. Rafe says he’ll be in touch and hangs up. Rafe tells Jada that now all they have to do is find Clyde as they hurry out of the station.
Chad reminds EJ that he should’ve told him that Clyde threatened their family. EJ responds that he’ll never stop being sorry for that. EJ asks about Clyde’s alibi. Chad says he doesn’t have time to answer his questions. EJ stops him and says he wants to help but Chad tells him to go to Hell and storms out.
Craig tells Chloe that if Nancy’s marriage falls apart, he will be there for her, but right now they owe her all the support and have to be positive. Chloe complains that she can’t do that while Nancy is marrying a thug. Chloe asks Brady to help her convince Craig that they have to get Nancy to reconsider. Brady apologizes but thinks Craig is right. Brady hears what Chloe is saying and wishes Nancy wasn’t marrying Clyde but it is her decision. Brady tells Chloe that unless she plans on no showing, they should get ready for a wedding.
Bonnie gets Nancy dressed and tells her that she’s never seen her look more beautiful. Bonnie gives Nancy a bouquet of flowers wrapped in blue while her outfit is new and borrowed from her while the jewelry is old, so she has all the bridal bases covered. Nancy thanks Bonnie and says their wedding is going to be very small with just family, but she would love it if Bonnie and Justin would come. Justin comes back in to the room with a serious look. Bonnie asks about the call with Sonny and if things between he and Alex are that bad. Justin responds that he doesn’t know how to say this, but Clyde was the one who stabbed Sonny. Bonnie questions why he would lay that old news on Nancy on her wedding day when that happened so long ago. Bonnie starts explaining but Justin cuts her off and reveals he’s talking about the stabbing that just happened that landed Sonny in the hospital. Nancy tries to argue it was Leo but Justin reveals that Sonny just told him that it was Clyde who attacked him.
EJ calls Chad, asking him to call him back because he really does want to help. Belle arrives and informs EJ that she just had a run in with Clyde and he asked about EJ in a way that was very unsettling. Belle adds that Clyde is marrying Nancy tonight. Belle calls that horrifying and says they can’t let Nancy marry a guy who put a hit on EJ and left him to die. EJ says that’s not all Clyde did and reveals that according to Chad, Clyde is also the one who murdered Abigail.
Clyde goes to City Hall and prepares to head inside when Chad grabs him from behind with his gun to his back.
Nancy questions what Justin is talking about, arguing that Clyde did not stab anyone. Bonnie points out that Sonny was stabbed behind and didn’t see who did it. Justin reveals that Sonny only identified the smell of vanilla. Nancy argues that doesn’t prove anything. Justin then adds that Sonny almost remembered seeing Clyde’s reflection in a picture frame. Nancy complains that Sonny is in the hospital being pumped full of drugs so they can’t trust anything he says and asks why Clyde would go after Sonny. Justin explains that Sonny is convinced that Clyde was trying to frame Leo. Nancy calls that even more ridiculous since Leo is out for revenge and has his hit list. Justin brings up Leo being cleared after Abigail’s murder, so Clyde had to find a way to implicate him again. Justin declares that Clyde did not just stab Sonny, he also murdered Abigail.
Belle thought Clyde had an alibi. EJ says he did too and asked Chad what had changed, but he just stormed off. EJ worries about Chad being in a bad way. Belle suggests they should call the police but EJ decides he’s going to handle Clyde himself.
Rafe and Jada search the Brady Pub but find out that Clyde is not there and that he’s getting married at City Hall, so they rush back out.
Clyde questions what Chad is doing. Chad warns him not to make a scene, pretend everything is normal, and come with him or he will kill him right here, right now.
Nancy insists to Justin that Clyde is innocent and has an alibi for the night that Abigail was killed as there is video of him fishing. Justin suggests Nancy speak to Sonny. Nancy argues that Sonny must be confused and she’s sorry for what he’s been through, but she has to get to her wedding. Nancy thanks Bonnie for everything. Justin advises Nancy to rethink her wedding but she refuses. Nancy yells at Justin to stop trying to ruin this for her. Nancy cries that Clyde is innocent and he loves her, so she is getting married today. Justin warns that this is a big step and asks her to talk to Sonny before she takes it. Nancy refuses to listen to anything else and declares that she’s getting married today, so nothing can stop her. Nancy thanks Bonnie again but decides it’s not a good idea for them to come to her wedding after all because of how Justin is acting. Nancy then exits the mansion. Bonnie says that Nancy must be right that Clyde wouldn’t stab anyone. Justin questions her believing that. Bonnie talks about believing in innocent until proven guilty while Justin sticks by what Sonny said. Bonnie believes Sonny could be mistaken. Justin doesn’t think so. Bonnie suggests Sonny could be thinking about his past stabbing. Justin talks about Clyde doing terrible things. Bonnie relates to being unfairly judged by your past, noting that she was a rotten person but she changed, so maybe Clyde has too. Justin hopes that she’s right for Nancy’s sake.
Brady, Chloe, and Craig arrive at City Hall and wonder where everyone is. Brady jokes that he thought they were running late. Chloe hopes it’s a good sign that maybe Nancy changed her mind and cancelled the wedding. Craig suggests she’s probably just taking extra time getting ready. Craig reminds Chloe to be supportive. Brady points out that Clyde isn’t even there, so he wonders what’s keeping him. Chloe feels it’s the perfect excuse to leave since they came but the bride and groom weren’t there. Craig says they can’t do that. Chloe points out that no one is there. Craig assures they are on their way. Chloe wants to wait two more minutes. Craig insists that they are not bailing on Nancy on her big day when she asked them to come. Craig tells her to think of how hurt Nancy would be. Rafe and Jada arrive. Craig gets upset, thinking that they tracked him there and repeats that he had nothing to do with Abigail or Sonny. Rafe responds that they know he didn’t stab anyone. Brady asks if they know who did. Rafe reveals they have reason to believe it was Clyde Weston. Chloe thought he had an alibi. Rafe and Jada explain that it fell apart as the footage was doctored. Chloe complains that she knew Clyde was a bad guy but questions if he’s that bad that he stabbed Sonny and killed Abigail. Rafe confirms it looks that way. Chloe worries about Nancy marrying him. Rafe says that’s why they are here, to get to Clyde before he walks down the aisle.
Chad brings Clyde to Abigail’s grave and orders him to look at her headstone. Chad wants to know why Clyde put her in the ground. Clyde claims he has the wrong guy and that he had nothing to do with it as he has an alibi. Chad screams that is the wrong answer as Rafe told him that the footage was tampered with. Chad warns that everyone knows he’s trying to cover his tracks and asks why he would do that if he wasn’t guilty. Chad wants to know why he slaughtered his wife. Chad screams at Clyde to start talking. Chad asks if Clyde did it to send a message to EJ. Clyde says it wasn’t like that at all. Chad asks for the truth. Clyde responds that Abigail wasn’t the one he meant to kill. Chad asks who was then and demands he start talking. Clyde then reveals that Belle was the one he was after.
Belle questions what EJ plans to do by handling Clyde. EJ says he should’ve put Clyde down the minute he remembered that Clyde had him shot. EJ complains that he lost everything because of him. EJ declares that this ends now. EJ goes to the safe. Belle worries that if EJ kills Clyde, he’ll lose everything again and will be behind bars for the rest of his life. EJ blames himself for Abigail’s death and says now he intends to make things right. EJ then opens the safe, only to find the gun is gone.
Justin loves that Bonnie has such a forgiving heart but not everyone is able to turn their life around like she did. Bonnie says she was able to because she had the love of a good man and now Clyde has the love of a good woman. Bonnie asks Justin to try to give Clyde the benefit of the doubt. Justin notes that Sonny was pretty sure about what happened but agrees to talk to him again. Bonnie worries about Nancy and asks how she can handle getting her heart broken all over again. Justin says she’ll just have to lean on her friends like her. Justin kisses Bonnie and then exits.
Chloe argues that they were supposed to be here by now and worries that Clyde found out the cops were after him and kidnapped Nancy. Nancy then arrives. Chloe asks if she’s okay. Nancy says she’s fine and asks what’s going on and where Clyde is. Rafe says they are actually trying to find him and questions if Nancy doesn’t know where he is. Nancy responds that she doesn’t, but she knows why they are hunting him down because of what Sonny said. Nancy says that Justin told her all about it. Rafe says they just need to find him. Nancy mocks this being about vanilla cologne and Clyde’s reflection. Nancy insists that Clyde didn’t stab Sonny. Rafe and Jada question what Sonny said. Nancy explains that Sonny said he saw Clyde’s reflection in a picture frame in his office but argues that he must have been hallucinating from the drugs they are giving him in the hospital. Craig tries to calm her down but Nancy shouts that she is getting married. Chloe brings up Abigail’s murder as well. Nancy brings up Clyde’s alibi but Chloe informs her that it’s fake and was altered. Nancy starts to cry. Jada confirms they have a warrant out for Clyde’s arrest.
Chad questions why Clyde would go after Belle. Clyde states that EJ blabbed to her after he told him to keep his mouth shut about their history. Chad questions what that has to do with Abigail. Clyde explains that he went to the DiMera Mansion one night with the excuse that he was there to talk business with EJ, but he didn’t trust him, so he planted a bug in the house to keep tabs on him. Clyde reveals that’s how he found out that EJ betrayed him and heard him talking to Belle. Clyde complains that EJ lied after assuring him that what happened in the park would be their secret. Clyde recalls hearing EJ talking about his plan to make sure Clyde would never be able to hurt anyone again but Belle talked him out of it. Clyde knew Belle still had every intention of making him pay, so he knew they were coming after him one way or another, so he decided to send EJ a message since he knew Belle was living at the mansion and wanted to teach her a lesson…
EJ remembers Chad saying he came to pick something up and realizes it was the gun. EJ tells Belle that Chad just found out who really murdered his wife and is going to handle Clyde himself, by killing him.
Rafe calls to put an APB out on Clyde Weston, wanted for murder and attempted murder so he’s considered extremely dangerous. Nancy cries that this can’t be true. Craig tries to comfort her but Nancy tells him not to touch her. Nancy runs out of the room, so Chloe and Craig go after her. Rafe decides they need to find Clyde and exits with Jada.
Belle says she’s really calling the police now as they have to do something. EJ feels they need to find Chad themselves before it’s too late.
Chad still wants to know how Clyde went from taking Belle out to murdering his wife. Clyde explains that when he got to the mansion that night, there was no sign of Belle or EJ. Chad asks if he just decided to kill his wife then. Clyde says that’s not how it went down. Chad screams at him to tell him what happened because he wants to know everything about how his wife died.
EJ tells Belle that Clyde’s been living with Nancy so maybe he’s there. Belle reminds him that they are getting married today at City Hall. Belle decides she’s going with EJ despite EJ saying no. Belle adds that first she’s going to call Shawn to let him know that they think Clyde is at City Hall. EJ still doesn’t want to involve police. Belle worries that Chad isn’t experienced with guns while Clyde is and asks if he’s prepared to deal with what happens if Clyde gets the gun away from Chad. EJ then agrees to let Belle call the police, but tells her to do it from the car as they rush out of the mansion.
Nancy returns to the Kiriakis Mansion and sits with Bonnie. Bonnie apologizes as she knows what Justin said upset her. Nancy responds that it’s ok because Justin was right as Clyde never showed up for the wedding, but the police did with a warrant for his arrest. Nancy cries that Clyde stabbed Sonny, and even worse, they said he killed Abigail. Bonnie tells her she’s so sorry. Nancy doesn’t want to believe it and kept arguing that the Clyde she knows would never do such horrible things but she couldn’t change their minds. Nancy breaks down crying as Bonnie hugs her.
Chad screams at Clyde to start talking. Clyde says he doesn’t want to do this. Clyde doesn’t think it will do him any good to hear about it. Chad accuses him of stalling as he holds the gun on him. Chad points out a freshly dug grave and threatens to put Clyde in it.
