It’s a very familiar story on Days Of Our Lives. Girl loves boy. Girl loses boy. Girl is presumed dead. Girl returns to town dressed up as different presumed dead girl in order to trick boy into loving her again.
Kristen (Stacey Haiduk) has never played with a full deck. She hired a lookalike to pretend to be her so she could deliver a baby Kristen claimed was John’s (Drake Hogysten).
She stole Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) embryo right out of her womb and passed off the resulting child as Brady’s (Eric Marstolf)…which he was…and hers…which he wasn’t. She then kidnapped Sami (Alison Sweeney), drugged her, and tried to get her to kill John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) at their wedding.
So this new plot, where she’s wearing a Nicole (Arianne Zucker) mask and playing the grieving mother pushing away Eric (Greg Vaughn) while kissing up to Brady is par for the course for Kristen. Will it work? What almost 5,000 fans have to say about the possibility:
Brady has made some very questionable decisions in the past — including falling for Kristen in the first place. But, he’s had his eyes opened since then, and even he wouldn’t go down that path again, 94% of you insist.
Nicole broke Brady’s heart when she cheated on him with Eric. Even if he’s stupid enough to fall for the lost little lamb act, surely that will change once he discovers what’s really underneath all that latex!
On the other hand, 6% of the audience isn’t feeling as confident. Brady is still hurting from Theresa taking Tate, and Eve (Kassie DePaiva) playing a role in that. He’s lonely and desperate. And he did love Kristen once before. If she reels him in as Nicole, she may have a shot at doing it as Kristen, too!
