"Days Of Our Lives" comings and goings reveal that a possibly dangerous new character will be headed to the NBC soap this week, and he may be up to no good. Actor Robb Derringer will appear as the character of Scooter, who is described as being a sex addict. Scooter is the husband of Nicole's new neighbor, Hillary, played by Jennifer Landon. Soap fans may remember Robb, who appeared on "General Hospital" as the character of Sloane from 2014-2015. He's also engaged to "Dancing With The Stars" judge, Carrie Ann Inaba.

Scooter could mean bad news for Nicole

Scooter's arc hasn't been confirmed, but it does seem that his sex addict background could lead to him causing some big trouble during his stint on "Days of Our Lives." Perhaps, he'll try to assault Nicole, who is currently hiding the secret that she's on the run after kidnapping Holly from Chloe, or he may even assault his own wife, Hillary, whom Nicole could help out of a bad marriage. As many viewers know, actress Ariane Zucker, who plays Nicole Walker, will soon be ending her 20-year run as Nicole, and her storyline is set to wrap up in the very near future. Perhaps Hillary and Scooter could have something to do with the reason that Nicole will soon be gone from Salem for good.

The drama is elevated in Salem

Meanwhile, "Days of Our Lives" fans watched last week as another new character entered the mix. Steve Johnson may have finally found his long lost son, Tripp, whose mother is the late Ava Vitali. Steve and Kayla hunted Tripp down and told him the big news. However, when Joey and Tripp met, there could be some major sibling rivalry between them.

Not only will the two be competing for Steve's attention, but if Tripp finds out that Joey is the person who murdered his mother, Ava, it's safe to say that the drama will be at an all-time high in Salem. All the while, adding to the drama is Deimos, who is still out to hurt that DiMera family, and Dario, who will confess his love to Abigail, making for a very awkward love square between him, Abby, Chad, and Gabi.
