While there, Theresa made the acquaintance of Brady Black, a fellow addict who had no intention of going straight. For the next few weeks, the twosome engaged in a dangerous cycle of co-dependent anarchy where they indulged in their craving for booze, pills, and sex.
Later, Theresa managed to convince Brady to marry her in a Vegas chapel — though it wasn’t hard considering the groom was drunk. Upon returning home, Theresa was greeted by her new father-in-law, John Black, whom she hit upside the head with a fireplace poker when he got her on tape promising to divorce Brady in exchange for a million-dollar payoff.
Not surprisingly, a sober Brady divorced Theresa when the whole sordid mess came to light but she thought she had another golden opportunity to get her man when a pregnancy test came back positive.
However, a second test was negative. A confused Theresa had no idea that a crazed Kristen DiMera had worked with a shady doctor to remove Theresa’s embryo and have it implanted inside of her!
A Final Adventure
In time, the truth about Theresa’s baby was exposed and after a battle with Kristen, the baby was returned to his rightful mother. Theresa and Brady lived with baby Tate and played happy family for a time, but Theresa was forced to suddenly leave town when Mateo tracked her down.
Theresa was imprisoned by her ex (in exchange for his letting her family live) alongside another familiar Salemite: Chloe Lane. Xander Cooke, who once was a violent threat to her life suddenly turned good and helped Theresa escape.
When she returned home, she found that Brady had moved on with Eve so Theresa initiated a particularly nasty custody battle and wound up with custody of Tate. Mother and son exited Salem and headed back to California so Theresa could care for her mother, whose leukemia had returned. Days of Our Lives airs weekdays NBC.
