Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: April Fools Altered, Holiday Combo Has One Real Story, Shock Plot Builds And Layers
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that that soap prepares three special episodes every year. One is focused on Christmas with various Salemites. Another is Halloween, which couldn’t be filmed this year due to COVI-19. April Fools 2021 will look a bit different this year. Head writer Ron Calivati says at least one shocking scene is true, and we’ll see it build and develop.
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – April Fools/Halloween Combo
In the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati explained that no Halloween episode was filmed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, they included some spooky elements to the 2021 April Fools special. It won’t really be a half-and-half or a holiday combo episode. It sounds like we’ll just get one or two scenes that would have fit better in the Halloween installment.
DOOL Spoilers – Ron Carlivati Confirms One Real Scene
DOOL spoilers reveal that the scribe explained one more feature that makes the April Fools episode different this year. In the past, the entire episode was completely made up. So anything that happened had zero effect on the real storylines. This year, there will be at least one scene that actually happens.
“Even though it’s an April Fools prank and is not real, there is one thing that happens so this episode will affect the story going forward, one thing that happens that may actually be real.”
Days Of Our Lives Spoilers – Which Scene Really Happens?
We know a few of the April Fools headlines, which include Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) getting pregnant, Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) hooking up with Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans). Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) has John Black (Drake Hogestyn) strapped to a gurney and it looks like she’s about to inject him with an assortment of drugs. Meanwhile, Belle Brady (Martha Madison) looks distraught to see her father being tortured. Plus, Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) and Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin) have a passionate smooching session.
Although Philip and Chloe seem the most “normal,”, we actually think the real scene is Xander sleeping with Bonnie. Hey, that’s what happens when you guzzle hard liquor being betrayed and dumped on your wedding day! Plus, Xander is just the type of person who would find himself in a situation like that. He might be semi-reformed, but he always finds himself in awkward situations.
DOOL Spoilers – Why Make Fake Episodes?
Fans are divided on how they feel about the April Fool and Halloween specials. Some think it’s a nice break from all the heavy storylines. It also gives people a little break from the challenges of real life. Sometimes we like realism in soaps and sometimes it’s nice to just get silly.
There are also some fans who don’t enjoy the special episodes. They call it nonsense or it’s too outrageous. Sometimes the fake plot points get them confused about what’s really happening on the soap. As for Carlivati’s reason, he does these crazy specials is for the actors. Daytime actors have grueling schedules. Soaps can get very heavy and serious.
Everyone needs to have fun, but soap sets don’t have the time for goofing around like primetime shows. Even though it’s important to work hard, if people don’t get a break once in a while, they can go into burnout. That’s not just actors, but every industry. Believe it or not, a few silly days a year is enough to actually improve one’s performance and attitude when it’s time to buckle down.
