NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers indicate EJ DiMera (Dan Feuerrigel) had a plan for his son’s future. Unfortunately for him, it doesn’t align with Johnny DiMera’s (Carson Boatman) plan. He wants to make movies, something EJ thinks is a waste of time. Let’s talk about how this father/son fight became a great moment for Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn)
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Our take
First, ‘Days of Our Lives’ spoilers reveal Johnny is now grown. Therefore, we think he has every right to make his own plan for his life. We think EJ has the right to not want to hand over money for everything Johnny might want to do, but there’s a limit here.
That doesn’t give him the right to try forcing/tricking his son into working at a company he doesn’t want anything to do with. He also really should watch any more trashing of Johnny’s dream if he wants to keep a relationship with him. His desperation to get his son in the fold led to a highlight of the day.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: Chad wins the day
There’s nothing like family. And the DiMeras definitely make one think twice about blood ties. See, EJ tried to use Chad to get what he wants. Johnny respects Chad and is close to him. So, he figured that if Chad presented an offer, Johnny might bite. Wrong.
Not only did Johnny refuse, but this plan helped Chad get a little revenge on his brother. Johnny went off on EJ about wanting to pursue his dream, something Chad supported. And, yes, EJ was not pleased. They weren’t done yet, though.
See, Johnny then presented the idea of DiMera getting into movies and such. He even on-the-fly came up with a quick plan. Chad claimed to be impressed and thought it was something they needed to look into.
After Johnny ultimately affirmed (again) he doesn’t want to work at DiMera and left, EJ went on the attack. He called out Chad for not backing him up and Chad replied that he and EJ hadn’t come to terms as to what’s in this for Chad. EJ’s reaction was awesome, as was Chad’s response to EJ trying to play the family loyalty card.
Chad pointed out he worked with Chad to screw over their new brother before EJ then tried to take the CEO job for himself. Hmm. It seems Chad has a lot more backbone to him when Abigail Deveraux (Marci Miller) isn’t around. If/when she returns, can the writers please keep this aspect? It’s a lot more entertaining than watching him get manipulated by every woman with a grudge against Abby.
NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Spoilers: What’s next?
As for what’s ahead, we don’t see EJ giving up this easy. He’s obsessed with DiMera being a family thing and having his son continue that. However, we don’t see Johnny weakening. We do, however, see him showing a bit of DiMera himself.
See, it was clear he’s attracted to Chanel DuPree (Raven Bowens). However, we think his texting her shirtless pics from bed might be partly motivated by getting in good with a girl who also comes from money. It’s clear he’s thinking rich mom might be a way to get the movie made. We’ll see. If he is somewhat using her, we think that’s uncool but it is a bit of karma, we suppose, after what Chanel did.
