Monday is the day of reckoning for Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) on Days of Our Lives. Salem University Hospital's ethics board is holding a hearing about Daniel's conduct the night Theresa Donovan (Jen Lilley) overdosed. The only problem is, it wasn't Daniel who was getting sneaky-freaky with the Druggie Formerly Known as Jeannie — it was JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss)!
Given everything JJ has done to Daniel since arriving back in Salem from boarding school, why is the good doc risking his career for the kid? Okay, so if JJ had been discovered with Theresa he likely would have gone to prison—due to having a rap sheet almost as long as his cousin Nick's (Blake Berris)—some would say the jailhouse is exactly when Jennifer's (Melissa Reeves) bad seed son needs to be!
JJ has been trying to make amends for his actions since Daniel decided to take one for the team. He's been polite and helpful to Jen and Abigail (Kate Mansi) and even babysat for Hope's (Kristian Alfonso) demon seed daughter Ciara and one of Sami (Alison Sweeney) 18 children on Thanksgiving. I can't help but wonder if JJ will continue on the path to Horton righteousness if the truth comes out.
Meanwhile, since Jennifer thinks Daniel is a dirty horn dog, who has a hankering for doped up girls, we've been spared the boredom of Dannifer. For that alone, JJ and Theresa deserve keys to the city.
Daniel has been spending time—and sharing kisses actually showcasing chemistry—with equally-wounded Salemite Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker). Jenn hasn't been lacking for company either. She's forming a promising bond with tortured and likely soon-to-be-defrocked Father Eric (Greg Vaughan). Maybe Jennifer Rose can remind Eric what it feels like to have consensual sex with a beautiful blonde?
Do you think Daniel will lose everything while protecting JJ this week on Days of Our Lives? Are you enjoying seeing Daniel and Jennifer share scenes with others? Do you miss JJ being a sexy bad boy? Sound off in the comments!
