Did everyone catch the recent almost-catfight between Dr. Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams) and town snob Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) on, “Days of Our Lives?” Nothing random occurs on soaps, and it seems this encounter was a big tease to an explosive reveal!
Valerie recently performed life-saving surgery on widower Abe Carver (James Reynolds). With a second chance at life, Abe has taken a fancy to the lovely doc, and his feelings appear mutual. Unfortunately his son Theo (Kyler Pettis) has major reservations about Valerie and he’s not above spying on her to uncover her buried past.
DOOL viewers, and Theo and Abe, now know that Valerie’s past includes a son, Eli (Lamon Archey). Well, that son has to have a father, but up to now the baby daddy has remained secret and hidden.
But, it seems that the full 411 on Eli’s parentage is about to come out and when it does it will cause shocking reverberations in sleepy Salem.
If a wild rumor making the rounds is true, Eli’s dad will be a former Salemite, and related to a veteran character. Can it be that snooty Julie is about to discover a grandson she never knew?
Lord help the town, and Valerie, if Hurricane Julie finds out that she’s been kept in the dark about her grandson all these years. Can you just imagine the volcanic fire and brimstone she’ll spew?
Back in the day, Valerie and Julie’s son, David, had a thing going on. It looks like Eli will be a product of their failed relationship, which is why Valerie never told anyone (maybe even David himself) about the boy.
But Eli’s impending arrival, coupled with Theo’s quest for answers, spells the end to Eli’s anonymity.
What do you think, DOOL fans, does Valerie’s son Eli have deep Salem roots in his family tree? Be sure to stay tuned in daily to DOOL, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
