Days Of Our Lives Spoilers: Steve Johnson Has A New Theory He Shares With Kayla Brady
NBC Days of Our Lives spoilers tease that in Salem Steve Johnson (Stephen Nichols) will have a new theory that he will share with Kayla Brady (Mary Beth Evans) on an upcoming episode of Days of Our Lives!
DOOL Spoilers – Steve Johnson Sees Something That Makes Him Suspicious
It looks like Steve will see something at the Salem University Hospital children’s Christmas party that makes him suspicious. Dressed as Santa Claus, he points it out to Kayla and she agrees. As Santa, Steve can do some surveillance and see if his theory holds out. As Steve was playing Santa and handing out gifts, he spotted a dark haired young man who seemed a little bit familiar kind of hanging around the hospital.
Then he notices Days of Our Lives cast member Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) going over to him. The two are obviously together, and they dropped off some donations. Kayla heard Claire had a new boyfriend but hadn’t met him. Steve cannot quite place why he seems familiar and then he realizes he resembles his own son Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) in some ways. Something about the shape of his head, his chin and his forehead reminds him of Tripp!
All of a sudden, Steve has an epiphany! Ava Vitali (Tamara Braun) is alive and well and in town. Surely Steve couldn’t have been the only man Ava has ever been involved with. Although he doesn’t connect Charlie Dale (Mike C. Manning) with Ava just yet, he knows he didn’t rape Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) and father baby Henry Horton (Jayna and Kinsley Fox)! Tripp maintains his innocence, and even though Steve and Kayla have had their differences over it, Steve believes him. There could be an answer to the question of who raped Allie if Tripp didn’t. Steve asks Kayla some questions and posits his theory.
Days Of Our Lives Updates – Steve Johnson Wants To Know If Tripp Had A Brother With A Different Father
Days of Our Lives Steve wants to know if Tripp were to have a brother, but with a different father, could it explain the paternity test results on Henry? Kayla tells him in a scenario where half-brothers with the same mother but different fathers, each half-brother would have twenty-five percent of matching DNA to each other because of the different fathers.
The two half-brothers would share DNA but a paternity test with a child of one of them could potentially show the wrong half-brother as the father! Kayla tells him that further testing would have to be done to see how much DNA of the mother, in other words Ava, would have to be compared with Steve’s DNA in a grandparent DNA test done on Henry. If Tripp is Henry’s father such a test would show more of Steve’s DNA than it would Ava’s. Steve asks if Ava’s DNA has to be gathered, and Kayla tells him no.
Mitochondrial or maternal DNA never changes through generations. Grandmother, mother, and child would all have the same mitochondrial DNA. Kayla wants to know if Steve knows if Ava had any other children, possibly boys. Steve admits that he doesn’t know for sure, but that boyfriend of Claire’s sure does remind him of Tripp. Kayla looks over in Charlie and Claire’s direction, as they are still hanging around and she can see where Steve gets that. They do share some similar facial features!
Days of Our Lives cast member Kayla says it would be unethical to try to get DNA from Charlie from a discarded coffee cup or the like, besides it would show the same result as Tripp’s toothbrush DNA tested against Henry’s if they were half-brothers. It won’t be needed for this purpose. Steve’s DNA would be less in Henry if his birth father wasn’t Steve’s son and that combined with a maternal DNA test will tell the tale and either prove Tripp is the father or Tripp’s possible half-brother is!
