Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Tripp Closely Related To Henry, But Isn’t Daddy – DNA Not 100% Match
NBC Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that in Salem Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) told Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) he was the father of Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) baby. Later, she said they share similar DNA. She mentioned both Tripp and Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) are related to the baby. The DNA is similar, but not a 100% match. So, who is this secret relative?
Similar DNA, But Not 100% Match
DOOL spoilers reveal that both Allie and Tripp insist they are telling the truth. Allie is convinced that it was Tripp holding her down, but he says they were never intimate. Kayla ran the DNA test and told Tripp he was the father, something he still denies. He insisted she run it again, but the results were the same. What wasn’t the same, though, is what Kayla explained about DNA.
The second time, Kayla didn’t say Tripp is the father without a doubt. Instead, she explained that Tripp and Henry share similar DNA strands. Then, she made a point to mention that the only other explanation is if a close relative is the real father. She scoffed when informing Tripp that the only other person that would have a similar result is Steve.
DOOL Spoilers: Has To Be Close Relative
Now, those that are familiar with DNA tests know that there are different types. Some are more general and basic. These types of tests are done most of the time, are quicker, less expensive, and really only analyze if the baby shares similar DNA to the alleged father.
But there is another type of test that is more detailed and comprehensive. It is extremely expensive and takes longer to get the results. It’s done when there is more than one possible father and they are all related. Fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, nephews, first cousins, etc. Now, when it comes to half-brothers, it all depends on their genetic coding. They might have very similar DNA or if might be completely different because they only share one mutual parent.
Tripp Dalton Has A Brother?
Days of Our Lives spoilers reveal that the DNA being similar, but not a complete match makes it clear that Tripp has a secret close relative out there. The most likely suspect is Charlie Dale (Mike C. Manning). The first clue should have been when Charlie angrily confronted Tripp, acting all macho and tough. It is just like soaps to have a tense interaction between two characters before revealing they have a secret link.
Plus, Charlie is getting close to Claire Brady (Isabel Durant), who has turned against Tripp. As far as we know, Charlie hasn’t been introduced to Allie yet. It would follow the typical soap writing formula to make Claire’s new boyfriend the same person who raped Allie.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Charlie Dale and Ava Vitali
Charlie is the intern who suddenly replaced the regular Titan assistant. Philip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) didn’t seem surprised, but Xander Cook Kiriakis (Paul Telfer) knew nothing about it. Philip can’t do his money laundering if there’s anyone who could expose him. That means making sure Xander gets out and replacing the regular assistant with a criminal.
This explains why Charlie seems sweet and awkward to most people, but his demeanor got scary when he confronted Tripp… because Charlie is putting on a big act. Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) is Charlie’s mother and they are working together with Philip.
It was also confirmed by head writer Ron Carlivati that Ava is going to hear about the rape accusation and “Mama Bear will have “something to say about that.” Will she risk her own freedom in order to save Tripp, even if it means sacrificing Charlie?
