Brady was so happy! After getting left at the altar and months of sniping, Eve (Kassie DePaiva) finally accepted Brady’s (Eric Marstolf) apology – and his proposal. Brady, Eve and Tate were going to be a Days of Our Lives (DOOL) family! Yay!
But, wait… who’s that? Is that Tate’s mommy, Theresa (Jen Lilley), back from bringing down a drug lord, and ready to resume her place in Brady and Tate’s lives?
Ooops. Awk-ward. Which sister are you rooting for? Here’s how over 6,000 Salem fans broke it down:
Theresa is Tate’s mother, 79% of you remind firmly. And the only reason she left town, leaving the coast free for Eve to move in on Brady, is because said drug lord threatened to kill Brady and Tate.
Sure, Theresa could have turned to her dad, super-spy Shane, for help. Or to her uncle Roman (Josh Taylor), then-top cop. Or her aunt Hope (Kristian Alfonso), now top cop. Or to Victor (John Aniston), who certainly has the resources to protect his family.
Wait, two of them did try to help her, by sending her to live with the drug lord undercover.
Don’t Leave Eve!
Theresa Who, 21% of the audience wants to know? Theresa took off. Which left Eve to pick up the pieces with a heartbroken Tate and Brady. (OK, there was a Nicole interlude in between, and that’s probably the mommy Tate remembers best.)
Eve was there when Theresa wasn’t, and she doesn’t deserve to walk in on her fiance making out with her sister. And, if that does happen (spoiler: it did), she deserves to have Brady apologize profusely, and swear his devotion to the woman who has stood by him – except when she found out he was just using her to get his family’s company back.
