Why Former Priest Eric Brady Is Now A Days of our Lives Hot Mess

Who is Eric deep down?

Days of our Lives Eric Brady

Eric Brady has been through quite a few identities on Days of our Lives. He went from a toddler who didn’t say much to the twin everyone wondered about while Sami Brady ran roughshod over Salem…and her brother was nowhere to be found.

Days of our Lives Polling

He’s been a priest, he’s been a lover, he’s been a photographer and a white savior, and then a priest and a photographer again — and now a hot mess. But who is Eric (Greg Vaughan), really?

Dumb and Pretty DAYS

Exactly half of you, 50%, would like to describe Eric as “a misguided, love-struck fool.” Yeah, that seems about right. He wanted Nicole Walker (Arianne Zucker), then he didn’t want her, then he did, then he didn’t, and now he does again. Except she’s married, and he’s about to become a father…with someone else. But the heart wants what the heart wants, you know. So, yeah, misguided and fool seem to cover it all nicely.

No Clue For Eric Brady

Eric has no idea what’s going on in his life, 26% mock, which is about on-brand for everyone in Salem, they concede. He divorced Nicole because she slept with Xander Cook (Paul Telfer) while he was off saving the entire continent of Africa. Then he told himself he wasn’t interested in her anymore — because he was a priest now. Again. Eric stopped being a priest, and he stopped denying he wanted Nicole. Right before Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu) discovered she was pregnant. So, yeah, clueless seems to cover it all nicely.

DAYS Hypocrite, Much

Eric is all Godly when it suits his purposes, a slightly smaller 24% of fans point out, but when it’s not, he just dismisses every principle he ever claimed to hold. He judged Nicole for cheating on him with Xander, but he has no problem kissing her passionately while she is married to Rafe Hernandez (Galen Gering). Hard to take his pain seriously. So, you know, that covers it nicely.

Days of our Lives airs weekdays on Peacock+ in the U.S. and The W Network or Global TV App in Canada. For more about what’s coming up in Salem, check out all the latest DAYS spoilers, and for an in-depth look at the show’s history, click here.
