Days Of Our Lives spoilers – What Is Next For Charlie Dale In Salem?
Manning is now in Salem and taking the soap world by storm with his portrayal of mysterious Charlie Dale, a good guy who may not be all that in the end. Charlie entered the scene as an intern caught between two bosses and now one of them, Xander Kiriakis (Paul Telfer), has taken him under his wing which may or may not turn out to be such a good idea.
Fans are very vocal about who they think Charlie really is—is he a mild-mannered intern or the secret son of Ava Vitali (Tamera Braun) who has returned to the show after a period of being dead (but definitely not looking worse for the wear!).
Or is Charlie somehow connected to Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) attack in London?
Right now he has his eye on Claire Brady (Isabel Durant) and she has her eye on him. Will this two hook up and create a new Salem supercouple, Chaire, or is doom and gloom on the horizon?
