12. Sami’s Hallmark Movie Special
Actress Alison Sweeney (Sami) has been in a ton of Hallmark Christmas movies over the years, and while each one is different, the overarching theme can be similar at times. A small-town girl returns home after the harsh realities of the “city” get to her, so she can come back to her “roots” and live a simpler life. If Sami and E.J. break up, Brady could return to Salem because her heart has been broken. She might do some soul-searching and realize that home is where her heart is, which is where her family is.
11. Exes Reunite
Most times in these Hallmark movies the main character reunites with an old boyfriend, so enter Lucas Horton! Lucas and Sami made an amazing super couple back in the day. They had some incredible chemistry, but despite breakups, they managed to co-parent effectively. They’ve been friends over the years, could they become something more when Sami returns?
10. Kate Zeroes In On Sami
When Sami returns, if she does start spending more time with Lucas, Kate may try and interfere. The rivalry between Kate and Sami is epic and has quite a history. With Kate preoccupied with Sami, could she lose sight of Jake? Could Gabi come in for the big swoop and take Jake away?
9. Jabi Catches Feelings
DOOL spoilers for the winter months indicate that Gabi will start working with Jake. She’ll keep her eyes on the prize and do all she can to win back his heart. If Kate is more concerned with getting back at Sami and keeping her away from Lucas, could Gabi succeed in snagging Jake for herself? The pair could catch some old feelings while together.
8. Ben and Claire
DOOL spoilers hint that Ben and Claire will establish a strong friendship during the winter months. Fans can’t help but wonder if this could turn into something more. Both are single and can bond over Ciara, while Ben may also help Claire get over Charlie. Could these two decide to become more? They will struggle with the idea, especially since Claire and Ciara were so close.
7. Laura Horton’s Return
Jenn’s mom Laura is set to return in February, and fans can’t help but wonder if this will coincide with the Gwen storyline. Why is Laura Horton gearing up for a comeback? There’s been major speculation that Jack could be Gwen’s bio dad. There are also arrows leading to the idea that she could be Peter Blake’s daughter (who also happens to be an ex of Jenn’s); however, there’s little mention of Gwen’s mom. Could Jenn possibly be Gwen’s mother? Could Laura return with more insight on this?
6. Gwen Versus Abigail
Whatever Gwen reveals, her rivalry with Abigail is sure to continue to heat up during the winter months. Gwen is set to reveal some truths soon, and she’s sure to gain sympathy from some in Salem when she does. This will infuriate Abby that much more. DOOL fans should expect huge confrontations between the two as winter turns to spring.
5. Rafe and Nicole
Will something romantic happen between these two? Not if Sami is in Salem! Eric and Nicole are still married, even though distance keeps them apart. Can Nicole stay faithful? Sami will undeniably keep an eye on what Walker is up to. She’s never thought Nicole was a good fit for Eric. Regardless, some sparks may fly between Rafe and Nicole, but will they cross a line?
4. Rafe and Ava
DOOL spoilers tease that Ava will need “protection” and Rafe may be the man to do so. Ava and Nicole are friends, and being interested in the same man could complicate things, regardless of marriage vows on Walker’s part. Rafe, Ava, and Nicole could prove to be a complicated love triangle in the land of Salem.
3. Complicated Love Triangle – Part II
Rafe, Nicole, and Ava won’t be the only complicated love triangle! Kristen and Brady are a thing; however, DiMera being locked up in jail for the next four-plus years is making it hard for them to stay connected. Chloe has questioned Brady on how realistic it is for the couple to last the long haul. It’s clear that Brady has feelings for Chloe, but is also waiting in the wings is Philip. He truly cares for Lane, too. While Philip is single, he’s entrenched in some dire dealings with the mob. While Brady’s life is in order, his love life is complicated. Will he brush Kristen off for a romance that he can engage in? Will his feelings for Chloe over-ride his feelings for the mother of his daughter? Will Philip try and stand in Brady’s way?
2. Who’s The Kidnapper?
With Ivan entering the Days’ scene recently, it’s hard to deny that Vivian Alamain could be the person behind the twins’ kidnapping. After all, she could be getting revenge for what Lani did to Stefan. With that said, DOOL spoilers do hint at a ton of plot twists with this storyline. Teasers also relay that actress Jackée Harry’s character, Paulina, is involved, and she’ll be introduced to audiences as the story goes on. So, who kidnapped the twins? Vivian or Paulina? Paulina will also end up being a “good” person when all is said and done. Does Paulina steal the twins to protect them against Alamain? Perhaps Vivian had something awful planned and Paulina countered it with the help of Ivan (for whatever reason) before anything bad could happen?
1. Crack Within The Sarah and Xander Relationship
Sarah and Xander are stronger than ever, but that could easily change. DOOL spoilers reveal that Sarah will be apprehensive about revealing Philip’s lies to Victor as this could bring harm to him. Added teasers imply that Xander may jeopardize Philip’s safety, and the entire thing could blow up in his face. Moreover, it may also cause concern for Sarah and create cracks in their relationship.
