                            'Days of Our Lives' spoilers: Marlena finally taken off life support

It is a brand new week, and while drama continues in Salem, in this heart-wrenching episode, Marlena (Deidre Hall) is finally taken off life support. Grab a box of tissues in case you need one. 

From last week's episodes, we know that Brady lashes out at Will because he is stubborn to break up with Paul to get back with Sonny, Paul receives some devastating news, Belle and John had a tough decision to make with Marlena's health and finally had to do what she had said. Sami gets shunned by her entire family, but, Rafe is stubborn to help her, Bonnie uses Lucas as her trump card and finally, Hope tries to separate Ben and Ciara. (Phew! So much drama in a week) 


This episode starts off with Marlena (Deidre Hall) being removed from life support. As we already know, she was shot during her own wedding by her daughter when she was just about to say her vows (Talk about luck). After being rushed to the hospital, due to serious issues, she was put on a ventilator. Unfortunately, she had arranged for a 'Do Not Resuscitate' order and the hospital and family were forced to follow it through and fulfill what she had wanted. What do you think is bound to happen to her? Is this the end of Marlena or will there be a miracle? 

Meanwhile, Sami (Alison Sweeney) finds herself being very grateful to Rafe (Galen Gering) because he allowed her to be at the hospital during her time of grief, with her family and other loved ones as they watched and prepared for her mother to die. During that time, Belle (Martha Madison) gets a shocking surprise when they receive a chilly reception from a loved one. 

Ben (Robert Scott Wilson), on the other hand, is not happy with the move that Hope (Kristian Alfonso) made. Hope, claiming that she has evidence that Ben was the one who started the fire, made a totally wrong move because he knows he didn't do anything. Hope just added fuel to fire and has no clue about it. Has she dug her own grave?


At the same time Ben, being the sweetheart he is, is not ready to lose his relationship with Ciara (Victoria Konefal). So he tries his best to convince her that it was all set up. Do you think she will end up believing him even though he has a horrible past? Or do you think she will instead believe her mother who she has trusted so far? 

Meanwhile, Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) has not stopped lying to her father. She even lied and told him that she does not want to make a play for Tripp (Lucas Adams). And seeing that Claire is occupied in Ben's drama, she decides that this is the loophole and tries to take advantage of the situation to make her move. Do you think he is vulnerable enough to fall for her play again?
