Last week in Salem, Marlena (Deidre Hall) ended up in a coma after Diana (Judith Chapman) tried to kill her. Diana wants Marlena out of the picture so she can be with John (Drake Hogestyn.)
While in her coma, Marlena is visited by ghosts of her past – Andre and Tony DiMera (both played by Thaao Penghlis). Kristian Alfonso (Hope) reprises her role of Princess Gina as Marlena battles for her sole. Her and John’s daughter Belle (Martha Madison) makes an appearance at some point.
While Marlena is fighting for her life, Diana worries that she left evidence behind of her dastardly deeds toward “Doc.” It is going to be a great week on Days of Our Lives.

The assassins that are after Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) mistake Ciara for Chloe. Ben saves the day but spoilers for next week suggest that Ben is injured in the gunfire.

JJ proposes to Haley
Early in the week, Haley (Thia Megia) finds out that she is going to be deported. She is devastated by the news and so is her ex-boyfriend J.J. (Casey Moss.) He is so desperate to keep the woman he loves in the country that he proposes to her! Haley isn’t sure about a green card marriage to the son of the next possible mayor of Salem, Jack (Matthew Ashford.)
Tripp (Lucas Adams) grows suspicious of Claire’s (Olivia Rose Keegan) role in turning Haley into immigration. Claire denies it, but she will be shocked by what Tripp tells her next. Tripp has ALSO proposed to Haley. Perhaps Haley will be more willing to marry Tripp.
