Days of Our Lives: Maggie Horton Devastated – Nicole Walker Crushed
The “death” of Holly Jones (Harlow & Scarlett Mallory) continues to take a toll, say DOOL spoilers. Maggie poured a glass of Scotch at the Kiriakis mansion. Then there was that glass of straight vodka at the Brady Pub. It seems she’s holding strong, but Maggie Horton has a rough road with her sobriety. She’s grieving intensely. If she loses her battle with the bottle, that will be a terrible mum’s day indeed. Even if Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) gives her some jewelry, it’s still a very bad day.
Days of Our Lives spoilers have Nicole Walker devastated over Holly’s “death”. This is the worst possible Mother’s Day. Her daughter was (allegedly) blown to bits in a terrible explosion. She’s enraged at Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) and in the arms of Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). But nothing can extinguish her grief over Holly “dying”. And Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) is tormenting her it seems. Flowers and a nice card will not make up for that.
DOOL: Jennifer Horton and Kate Roberts Have Rough Times With Adult Children
Days of Our Lives show Jennifer Horton is back in Salem and mad as hell. Her amnesiac and aggravating ex Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford) is about to be mayor. And next week, their son JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) takes off on the run with Haley Chen (Thia Megia). So, her Mother’s Day will be one kid out of the country and one on the run from the law. And she’s furious with Jack and has no man in her life. Not a happy holiday by any means.
Other upcoming drama on DOOL has Kate Roberts dealing with Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder) who may have his heart ripped out soon. With Nicole sidelining Eric, Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) may run to him and ditch Rex. So, Kate may need to comfort her son over heartbreak soon. And Philip Kiriakis (John-Paul Lavoisier) was name dropped recently but he’s not around. Of all the moms on the list, Kate may be the one to have a marginally happy day.
Hope Brady and Marlena Evans Have Rough Weeks Too
Days of Our Lives have Hope Brady (Kristian Alfonso) getting hit with a trifecta of tough news at Mother’s Day. First, her beloved daughter Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal) is bedding down with a serial killer. Second, her husband Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering) threw away his wedding ring and they’re divorcing. Last, new mayor Jack is about to fire her. So, even if Ciara gets her a spa day and a batch of carnations, no doubt Hope Brady’s day will still stink.
Also on DOOL, Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall) has dim days ahead. She’s happy with her hubby, but her son and grandson are devastated and that’s got her reeling. Marlena encouraged Eric to share his feelings. He did, then dumped Sarah for Nicole who then dumped him. Plus, Holly’s death wrecked Eric and Nicole’s blaming him. Then, there’s her grandson’s brain tumor. Even if John Black (Drake Hogestyn) gets her five dozen roses, this is not going to be a great Mother’s Day.
So for NBC soap fans, this Mom’s Day is an utter downer. But of all these ladies having a really bad week, who’s got it worst? Vote in the poll below.
