Poor Eric Brady was in a sorry state for the end of 2015 that led to him becoming an alcoholic and killing Daniel in a drunk driving accident on New Year’s Eve last year on Days of Our Lives.
Knowing he killed his best friend put him in even more of a sorry state and he finally stopped drinking when he willingly went to jail–supposedly for 10 years.
Well, that 10 years seems to have turned into 10 months because next week we learn Eric was released considerably early, and is as miserable as ever.
Good thing he finds something to do right away as he happens upon Hope’s near-lifeless body dumped on the side of the road, according to the January 23 issue of Soap Opera Digest.
Apparently, Eric has been out for a while now and has been hiding in a farmhouse while still feeling he never paid for his sins. That’s where he takes Hope to nurse her back to health.
“He has become secluded,” actor Greg Vaughan told Digest. “It’s like he wants to go into a cave and sit there and deal with it, to figure things out, or be as quiet to the world as he can.”
Of course, when he sees Hope (Kristian Alfonso) he knows he can’t just leave her there and does what any good ex-priest would do and helps her. It also gives Eric a purpose, something he hasn’t had in a very long time.
