“Days of Our Lives” fans are about to get a blast from the past in 2016 as old fan favorite characters return to Salem bringing with them drama from the past according to a Friday, January 15 report from CDL.
Longtime “Days” fans will remember the days and love triangles between Sean/Belle and Phillip of long ago. Well, it appears that not much has changed years later. Despite Sean and Belle being married and having a child, the couple are experiencing major marital issues and could be facing a divorce. Enter Phillip.
Phillip has always loved Belle and is not beyond using Belle and Sean’s marital issues as a chance to swoop in on Belle. Since their return to Salem Belle and Phillip have been very flirty and there is obvious heat between the two. What better placed to live out your secret desires than Las Vegas the city of secrets and sins? Belle and Phillip are set to take off to Vegas and fans you know that means trouble.
A little back story for those who are new to “Days.” At this time, Belle is forcing herself to think of Philip as a good friend, but the two share a very complicated history. They ended up together after high school and eventually married. When Belle got pregnant with her daughter Claire, it was believed that Philip was the father. Eventually, Belle and her high school sweetheart, Shawn Brady, got back together and it was revealed that he was Claire’s biological father. Philip was torn up about losing Claire and left Salem not too long after all the drama.
In true Salem fashion, before Belle and Shawn’s wedding, it was revealed that Belle has cheated on Shawn with her ex-husband, Philip. After they were married, Belle and Shawn decided to take their daughter and leave home. Eventually then ended up in Maine where they remained until they both returned home for Bo Brady’s funeral. The stress between Belle and Shawn are taking a toll on the couple’s daughter Claire, who has vowed to do whatever it takes to keep her mom and dad together. Shawn soon returns to Salem and Claire has her work cut out for as she plots to keep Phillip away from her mother.
All clues are pointing to “Days of Our Lives” fans being in store for another Shawn/Belle/Philip love triangle brewing. But what could turn out to be more interesting than the love triangle drama itself, might just be Claire. If Claire has even an ounce of Sammie Brady’s evil ways in her then look out because we all know just what lengths Sammie was always willing to go to to accomplish what she wanted.
Will Belle choose Shawn again, or will she be more drawn to Philip after her marriage fell apart in Maine? Do you believe Claire will be taking a page out of Sammie’s manipulation handbook?
