‘Days of Our Lives’: Maggie Horton Falls Off the Wagon – When and Why

Days of Our Lives tips Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) off the wagon next week. Fans may not like this, but it’s confirmed. Holly Jonas’ (Harlow and Scarlett Mallory) fiery “death” seems to be what finally broke her will. Of course, that was just the straw. Other events pushed Maggie to the point where she was vulnerable. So, when she finally grabs the bottle with both hands, who is to blame? Several people, in fact. Look ahead to this sad twist on the NBC sudser.

Days of Our Lives: Years of Sobriety Gone With One Sip – Maggie Horton Struggles

DOOL spoilers show Maggie Horton already tempted herself twice. She came home from dinner out with Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston) and Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow). That went poorly and she poured a big glass of Scotch. But still, she held out and didn’t take a sip – despite it being a really awful evening for her.

Then, Days of Our Lives spoilers had her at the pub. That time, Maggie ordered a big old glass of vodka. That sat untouched until Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker) joined her and had a coughing fit. Nicole grabbed the glass, sniffed the booze, and called her out. So, that sip never made it past Maggie’s lips. But soon, she falls back into the bottle.

DOOL: Maggie Horton Takes Her a Drink – Here’s When It Happens

Watch Days of Our Lives Thursday May 23 for the sad end to Maggie’s sobriety. That is when she’s pushed so far that she takes a drink after years of fighting the good fight. So, what triggers it? That day might be Holly’s funeral. Or it could be just another mundane day of her husband being an insensitive jerk.

That’s what led her to the Scotch bottle last week, remind DOOL spoilers. Victor rehired Kate and then at dinner, they both were callous to Maggie Horton. Then, when Maggie wanted to go home, Victor Kiriakis refused to ride along. He said he wanted to be “alone” but that was a lie. He was going to sit there drinking with Kate Roberts…

Why Maggie Drinks and Who Will Help Her?

The Days of Our Lives spoilers on Maggie’s spiral show that it’s not one event but many that drive her to drink. There’s so much sadness right now. Daniel Jonas is dead and now his daughter Holly “died”. Her daughter Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) is settling for cheater Rex Brady (Kyle Lowder). Plus, Victor seems to be taking sides with Kate despite knowing how devastated Maggie is right now.

But who can help Maggie? When someone struggles with substance abuse, it’s Maggie Horton that steps up to help. Now, DOOL spoilers say it’s Maggie Horton that needs assistance. Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) sees her hit bottom. And he well knows what it’s like to fight this war. Brady will be first to reach out a helping hand.

Upcoming on DOOL, spoilers say to expect Maggie’s sad spiral to continue this week and next until she finally takes a drink late in the week of May 20. Watch for the warning signs on the NBC soap as Maggie loses control of her sobriety and years of recovery are tossed aside.
