Carly finds herself manipulated away from her hospital duties by Lawrence but before the frustrated doctor can leave she’s forced to administer aid when Lawrence is injured by a blown-over tree. He tries to lure her into a sexual tryst but she manages to pull away and makes a retreat to the safety of Bo’s sailboat.
John volunteers to assist in fortifying the docks against the abrasive storm but he is injured when the wind causes a pile of sandbags to topple over. Word reaches Isabella, who gets into her car and rushes off to check on her husband.
The rain makes it difficult to see the road and she winds up skidding off the asphalt and onto a pier. The car reaches the end and plunges into the icy Salem river…
The Aftermath: Carly remained unable to deny her feelings for Lawrence and she returned to him despite Bo’s reverent pleas. Jack and Jennifer’s workplace dalliance resulted in the birth of their daughter Abigail who will be diagnosed with aplastic anemia.
Isabella was rescued from her watery tomb and recovered. She and John welcomed their baby boy, Brady Victor, a few months later – and right in the middle of exchanging wedding vows!
This special was aired to coincide with the Soap Opera Digest Awards, which aired right after the episode’s conclusion.
Rather than use the regular opening credits featuring an emptying hourglass and the narration from Macdonald Carey, a special sequence was created that displayed the actor’s names in a fashion similar to most primetime television shows.
This episode served as the debut for actress Tracy Middendorf who was replacing Christie Clark in the role of Carrie Brady.
On Stormy Night was produced on film rather than the videotape, on which the normally scheduled episodes were recorded. Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
