Did this Days of our Lives romance really ever make sense to anyone? Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) was a poor, formerly crippled farm girl (with a tendency to hit the bottle when under stress), recently widowed from upstanding lawyer Mickey (with a tendency to shoot his brother when under stress).
Days of our Lives 4th of July Wish
Victor (John Aniston) was a ruthless, cold-hearted, scheming bazillionaire who, every once in a while, said nice things to his grandchildren, Brady (Eric Martsolf), Ciara (Victoria Konefal), and Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan), and semi-nice things to nephew Justin (Wally Kurth) and grandnephew Sonny (Freddie Smith).
Maggie and Victor: Opposites Attract
What did these two ever have in common, to begin with? Let’s assume Victor is good in bed. After all, he managed to seduce a mother and a daughter (that would be Caroline and Kimberly Brady, for those keeping score). But, as the song says, is that all there is?

It’s more like The Powers That Be at Days of our Lives at the time looked at the canvas and said, “Hey! There’s an older person! There’s another older person! Let’s have them fall in love because they are both older!” And thus it was so.
Maggie: Fool Me Once…
Victor has done many bad things since he and Maggie were married. And Maggie has made frowny faces at him, then taken him back after a firm finger-wag and Victor promises never to do bad things again.
Until the next time. But there are forgivable bad things, and there are unforgivable bad things. Victor just did something unforgivable to Maggie’s daughter. He allowed Sarah (Linsey Godfrey) to bond for over a year with a child who he knew was not hers.
Sarah’s life is shattered and her heart is broken. No mother should be able to stand by and then, once again, forgive the man who did that to her child. This 4th of July, Maggie must declare independence from Victor! Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
