Be on the lookout for Days of Our Lives spoilers and updates related to Nurse Whitley's motive and her end game. Spoilers tease that soon Paulina will be a patient of the crazy nurse. It's not clear if this is intentional in order to locate her husband or if Paulina ends up hospitalized because of panic attacks. What is known is that the two women will have a faceoff and viewers don't need a spoiler to tell them who will come out on top. This is going to be must-see TV and DOOL viewers will not want to miss any of it. Keep turning in weekdays on Peacock to find out what comes next for Abe and Paulina who have had quite a bumpy ride in their relationship and it seems like it is going to continue.
