Adrienne was once a shattered young woman on Days of Our Lives (DOOL) and even though Justin didn’t know her name, he wanted to help.
Unfortunately, in the video clip above, Justin’s (Wally Kurth) timing was oh-so-wrong. Poor Adrienne (Judi Evans) was spurred by a phrase he said to remember something horrifying — and she couldn’t deal with having Justin there as she remembered it.
At the time, her brother Steve (Stephen Nichols) had taken responsibility for killing their father, Duke, who used to abuse Adrienne, as well as his wife and other kids. These flashbacks let her know that everything the had believed as true was wrong.
Remembering what really happened changed everything for Steve and Adrienne, along with their relationship with each other and with others. While their close bond continues to this day, it does seem strange that she isn’t around right now as her brother fights for his life.
