Why Maggie’s in Prison on ‘Days of our Lives’ – Will She Get More Jail Time Now?

Days of our Lives this week showed Maggie Horton (Suzanne Rogers) in prison, getting a visit from Xander Cook (Paul Telfer). But, some fans seem unclear on why she’s there. After all, the NBC soap skipped right past a courtroom scene. And DOOL glossed over of the legal process because it sped things up (and was cheaper to film). But, will she get more jail time tacked onto her sentence for her latest crime?

Why Is Maggie Horton in Prison on Days of our Lives?

Spoilers this week have Maggie Horton slapping Xander when he comes to visit her at Statesville Prison. But, why is she even in there? It’s about Adrienne Kiriakis’ (Judi Evans) death. Right now, Maggie’s certain she drove drunk and killed her friend. So, she confessed to the crime.

If you remember on Days of our Lives, Xander found Maggie Horton drunk behind the wheel of her car. That’s the same car that ran Adrienne and Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) off the road. That accident killed Adrienne at the side of the road – and Sarah’s baby not much later.

Of course, until recently, the only death known from that night was Adrienne’s on Days of our Lives. But once the baby swap secret came out, word spread that Sarah’s baby died – and that all leads back to Maggie Horton supposedly driving drunk. So, is there more to come on that?

Maggie Confessed – DOOL Spoilers Wonder if More Prison Time Ahead

Days of our Lives spoilers promise more pain for Maggie Horton this week. She finally knows her newborn granddaughter died that night — and blames herself. Remember, as soon as Maggie found out she killed Adrienne, she confessed and accepted the prison sentence.

So, we expect Days of our Lives spoilers for Maggie confessing to that death too. If so, then Victor Kiriakis’ (John Aniston) wife might get more time tacked onto her prison sentence. Aside from facing more jail time, she’s broken-hearted that she killed her grandchild.

Already, she’s torn up over Adrienne’s death – and now Maggie Horton suffers more with this new guilt on Days of our Lives. Spoilers hint, though, that there’s more to this. Even if Maggie’s stuck longer in prison, she might not be guilty of any of these crimes.

Does Maggie Deserve to be in Prison on Days of our Lives?

While some fans wouldn’t mind seeing Maggie Horton off-scene and in prison for a while, others adore her and want her back on the scene on DOOL. But, sources say there’s another twist ahead that could get Maggie out of prison once and for all. Of course, Sarah might wind up there sharing a cell with her mom.

Well, Days of our Lives spoilers hint that Maggie’s other daughter, Summer Townsend (Marie Wilson), set up her mom. In fact, we should find out that Maggie Horton didn’t drive drunk at all. Remember on DOOL, that she said she doesn’t even remember taking a drink.

But, Summer was near the drinking glasses and may have slipped something in her mom’s cup. So, watch and see what happens on Days of our Lives. Spoilers tease that we’ll soon find out Maggie Horton didn’t kill Adrienne or Sarah’s infant. For now, though, she assumes the worst.
