On Days of Our Lives, Rafe has been tip-toeing around his wife, Ava, for a few weeks. And for good reason, really. After all, he’s been going back and forth with Nicole for quite some time. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Ava’s getting a little suspicious. But now, it looks like Ava’s set a trap for her dearly beloved husband (and killed the beloved Duke the Bear!). And Rafe has fallen into it head-first.

On ‘Days of Our Lives,’ Ava sets a trap for Rafe

According to SoapHub, the first domino in this latest bit of Days of Our Lives drama fell on the December 30 episode of the show. At that time, Ava found out a juicy bit of information. And this information was really the impetus she needed to set her murder trap into place.

Our previous speculation about what Ava would do with the information about Rafe and Nicole’s affair suggested that the Vitali mob princess wouldn’t exactly take it lying down. And, as can perhaps be expected, she didn’t disappoint.

“She’s already teamed up with the villainous Philip to take down his ex, Gabi,” we reported. “It’s entirely possible that the Vitali mafia princess will want a quid pro quo for her hard work — and Philip will have no choice but to oblige. Given that she (allegedly) had a hand in poisoning Rafe, who’s to say she won’t take things to the next level when it comes to him? And we haven’t even gotten into what she’ll do to Nicole when she finally gets a hold of her. Nicole, you in danger, girl!”

Now, as fans of Days of Our Lives know, Philip is currently off the canvas. (More’s the pity.) But that doesn’t mean Ava’s devious plan isn’t locked and loaded.

And Rafe dives in head-first

“Rafe will try to make things work with Ava, but he’ll eventually realize she knows about the betrayal and has been plotting against him,” reports Celeb Dirty Laundry.Days of Our Lives fans can expect Rafe to solve that mystery too late. There’ll definitely be some danger involved as well build to the climax of this Days storyline, so it’s easy to imagine Ava holding Rafe captive for a bit. Ava may vow to kill Rafe since she’s capable of that sort of thing. Bottom line, Rafe will catch on awfully late in the game and will land in serious trouble as a result.”

Meanwhile, Sami and Lucas get closer — but is it all based on a lie?


Is ‘Days of Our Lives’ Pre-Empted Due to New Year’s Eve?

For all that Sami put hands and feet on Nicole when the situation presented itself, it’s interesting how things have been panning out between her and Lucas. In any event, reports that on this week’s upcoming Days of Our Lives episodes, Sami and Lucas will want to give their relationship the old “college try.”

Look for the pair to want to go away together on January 3, but keep in mind that this relationship seems to be entirely based on a lie. (Several, actually, but let’s not split hairs.) Can Sami and Lucas work it out? Will she go back to EJ? And what will the fallout be when it all shakes loose?

We’ll just have to tune in to upcoming episodes of Days of Our Lives to find out for sure.
