Days of Our Lives spoilers indicate Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) will indeed wake up — but it will really be Hattie Adams. Marlena has been in a coma since Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) crashed her wedding and then forced Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), Marlena’s daughter, to shoot John Black (Drake Hogestyn). However, accidentally, Sami shot her mother instead.
Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Belle Reveals Marlena Evans’ Wishes
Previously on Days of Our Lives, Belle Black (Martha Madison) had found documentation in Marlena’s will and insurance papers that stated that she didn’t want any extraordinary measures taken to keep her alive. This meant that the ventilator that Marlena was currently on should have never even taken place. As she needed the ventilator to breathe, following her wishes would ultimately lead to her death.
Obviously, the whole family, especially Belle as she was the one who had found this information, felt horrible. John, in particular, didn’t want to lose the love of his life and let his daughter know this. This led to a brutal argument between John and Belle. The family joined together to say their goodbyes to Marlena as she was taken off of life support on Friday, September 14.

John and Kayla Hide Marlena Evans to Save Her Life – DOOL Spoilers
Unknown to Belle, Eric Brady (Greg Vaughn), or any of Marlena’s friends or family members, John Black and Kayla Brady Johnson (Mary Beth Evans) concoct a plan to save her life. As she is in a coma and needs the ventilator to live, taking her off of this would result in the end of her life. So, John and Kayla decide to not do this.
In secret, the two move her to a hospital room on an abandoned floor that is in renovation. As no one is ever down there, the two think this is the best way to go about their plan. They’ll keep her on the ventilator and hope that she wakes up from her coma.
Because no one other than these two know where the “real” Marlena is, it makes their mission very tricky. Kayla, for one, has her status as a well-respected doctor on the line. However, both of them can’t stand the thought of losing her and will do anything they have to in order to keep her alive.

Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Hattie Adams Pretends to Be Marlena Evans
To pull off their risky plan, Kayla and John needed a way to trick everyone else. Soap Opera Digest spoilers reveal this is where Hattie Adams comes into play. Marlena’s very own doppelganger, Hattie takes the place of her as this is her chance to get out of jail.
When Marlena (aka Hattie Adams) is taken off of life support, she miraculously awakens and comes back to life. Her children are thrilled. Meanwhile, the real Marlena is on the abandoned hospital floor, still in a coma.
This doesn’t mean that everything goes according to plan. Hattie can be a loose cannon and doesn’t act like Marlena. Kayla and John try their best to keep Hattie in check, but the audience will see loads of drama that Hattie creates as Marlena.
So the rumors are true- Hattie takes Marlena's place! Brilliant on @RonCarlivati's part! pic.twitter.com/BP5vPEeHK2
