March Madness is in full swing, on the court and in fictional Salem. This week on Days of Our Lives kicks off with John (Drake Hogestyn) telling Leo (Greg Rikaart,) “Leo, I’m your father.” Minus the weird breathing. Leo heads straight to Brady (Eric Martsolf) to tell him that they’re brothers, which is awkward because they’ve locked lips.
Meanwhile, Leo’s mom, Diana (Judith Chapman) plots Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) demise. Marlena ends up in the hospital, but what landed her there? And who?
Diana Puts Marlena in a Coma – or Was Kristen Behind it?
John finds “Doc” unconscious and rushes her to the hospital. Marlena is put into a coma so she can recover from her extreme allergic reaction to the penicillin Diana injected her with. But was it Diana holding the needle?
A nurse tells John that the woman who attacked Marlena was none other than Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk.) Kristen is presumed dead after the warehouse fire that “killed” Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker.) Whether it’s really Kristen, Days fans know no one ever dies, especially not a DiMera.

Visit from Tony
If they do die, they make random appearances in dreams or to comatose patients. The latter happens this week when Tony DiMera (Theo Penghlis) appears to Marlena’s coma dream. Tune in to find out what Tony tells Marlena.
Haley Arrested! Who Ratted Her Out?
Last week, Haley (Thia Megia) was outed by Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) as an illegal immigrant. Sought by the police, Tripp (Lucas Adams) let her stay in his loft apartment. Tripp’s girlfriend/roommate Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) is not happy about this.
Someone rats Haley out to the cops and Haley is arrested. Since no one in Salem knows yet that Claire is a lunatic with a perchance for pyro, suspicion falls on Jack being the tattletale. That doesn’t bode well for his relationship with his son J.J. (Casey Moss.)
Will Jack ever be reunited with his family? What lengths will Haley take to stay in Salem? (Hint: It’s a green card marriage – but will J.J. or Tripp be the groom?)
Eric and Sarah’s Kiss Caught By Brady
The week wraps up with the flirtation friendship between Eric (Greg Vaughn) and Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) taking a romantic turn when the two kiss. While comforting Eric about his mom being in the hospital, the duo lock lips. Who walks in at that exact moment? None of Eric’s brothers haven’t gotten along since Eric “stole” Nicole from Brady. However, they put their differences on hold earlier in the week for Marlena’s sake. That doesn’t stop Brady from warning Rex (Kyle Lowder) that Eric has a history of stealing girlfriends. Walking in on Eric kissing Rex’s fiance only proves Brady’s point.
How will Brady react? Will he tell Rex? Watch Days of Our Lives weekdays on NBC to find out what happens to the residents of Salem.
