Days of Our Lives Spoilers | Sarah Rigged Her Own Paternity Test, Rex Gets Twisted Gift
As we all know, Sarah Horton is not doing well these days. She feels sick and devastated by her break-up with Xander Cook.
But then again, as if that weren’t enough, Xander adds insult to injury by stealing The Spectator from Sarah’s family with the help of Leo Stark and Gwen Rizczech, both of whom are shady characters with questionable motives, though I believe explanations are not really needed.
Nonetheless, Sarah’s discomfort is not only caused by her emotional turmoil but also by her physical condition. She soon realizes that she is pregnant and the baby is most likely Xander’s, yikes, I know!
Even though Sarah briefly slept with her ex, Rex Brady, after Xander cheated on her, she knows deep down that Xander is the father of her child.
After all, if this kid of paternity thing comes to light, soaps tend to move toward that person who they favor more to be together with the other character, hence, with their history, Xander seems to be the perfect candidate.
Also, once Xander learns of this news, he is going to be in the room. Of course, there’s the fact that Sarah and Xander are still married on papers, although they’ve left each other’s company a while ago
However, Sarah’s mixed feelings about Xander and the circumstances of their pregnancy make her reluctant to share the news with him.
And then Gewn and Leo are certain to be thrown into the mix when they learn that the documents are lost from the courthouse. It’s going to be a whole scene.
Meanwhile, Rex tries to convince Sarah to let him pretend to be the father of her baby. Rex’s reasoning is that he wants to protect Sarah from Xander, whom he considers a dangerous and unworthy partner. Can’t blame him for that.
However, Sarah is not easily swayed by Rex’s argument, as she knows that lying about the baby’s paternity would be unfair to Xander and ultimately futile. Also, morally wrong and unethical for all that matters.
They have another problem in line though, Sarah and Xander are still in love with one another despite their tumultuous and pretty snarly past.
Despite their differences, Sarah and Xander seem destined to raise their child together.
However, they will face many challenges along the way, including interference from Gwen, Leo, and other Salem residents who have their own agendas and secrets. At the end of the day, this baby bombshell can only make or further break their already strained relationship.
Goodbye and see you again.
